Our New Wildcat Bed

Hi Friends! Once again I am sending my apologies for not writing sooner. The fall is such a busy time of year for us. School visits, book signings, UK football AND UK basketball certainly keeps our tails waggin'! Speaking of our favorite team, we wanted to show you our new bed. Dad said Chloe and I had worked hard all month, so for a treat, he bought us this brand new University of Kentucky Wildcat bed. Chloe and I love it. It makes bedtime much more fun! I think it is bringing the team good luck too!

Mr. Nathan, the man who keeps our doghouse looking so nice, has updated the photo page. If you haven't seen it, go on in and sniff around. Also, there is a new Christmas jumble on the Fun and Games page.

I better say goodnight for now! We will be in Lexington on Thursday, then in Owensboro on Friday and Saturday. I am already asking Mom if we can eat some burgoo at one of our favorite BBQ restaurants in Owensboro! YUM!

Night, night! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

A Busy Week in Kentucky!

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Hope you are all having a super day! Chloe and I are enjoying a day off. Last week was packed with exciting travels, but we had to come home and wash our jammies!

Thursday was spent with the students at Cartmell Elementary in Carroll County. The students at Cartmell knew all about our travels! Remember in TAILS II when Chloe and I went to Berea? I told you how Chloe and I looked for wiener dog portraits, but didn't find any. Well, the students at Cartmell didn't let us down. They had painted wiener dog portraits for us - and they were beee-autiful! In that same article, I explained how Chloe could make a pretty necklace made from candy. If you look closely in the third photo, you will see that the students are wearing necklaces made from - you got it - candy! The necklaces were lovely- and were yummy too!

The day was perfect! There was one scary part though. Ms. Ray had a snake in her room. She showed it to Mom and me. It was the first time I had ever seen a snake up close and personal. It stuck its tongue out at me. It probably wasn't polite, but I stuck my tongue out at the snake too! Mom reminded me to mind my manners. I didn't want to end up in the doghouse - especially if the doghouse was in the same room as the snake!

On Friday, we were at Kathryn Winn. Kathryn Winn is also in Carroll County. It was fun to see all of our friends we met a few years ago! Chloe and I always love talking about our TAILS!

On Saturday, we were at the 25th Annual Kentucky Book Fair in Frankfort. We love the Book Fair. There were hundreds of authors signing lots of great books!

Sunday found us in Danville at Maddy's Books. The Advocate Messenger - Danville's newspaper - asked us to come to Maddy's to meet the folks who have been following our TAILS. We met all kinds of new friends. TAILS II isn't just for kids - adults love it too! Chloe took a break from signing to show off her new sweater and even take a cat nap!

It is almost bedtime. Now that we had a day off, I at least have clean Scooby Doo jammies! I am going to put them on and crawl into bed!

Goodnight! Sweet Dreams! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

Catching my Dog Breath

Hey Faithful WoodyReaders! Whew! November is in full swing and Chloe and I are busy little pups! In fact, I only have a minute, but I wanted to take a minute to catch my dog breath and say "Arff!" Mom and Dad are loading our things to head out to Carroll County. We will be at Cartmell on Thursday, Kathryn Winn on Friday, The Kentucky Book Fair on Saturday, then Maddy's Books in Danville on Sunday! We are so excited!!!

Last week, we were several places, inluding Johnson Elementary. Here is a photo with Ms. McKown. She was so nice to Chloe and me. If we were in the 3rd grade, we would love to have a teacher like Ms. McKown!

I better go! I don't want to be late and end up in the doghouse! I will bark at you later!

Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
