The Big Rivalry!!!

Hey WoodyWatchers! Hope everyone is having a great Saturday! I only have a minute because the big game is coming on! That's right, our Kentucky Wildcats are getting ready to take on the Louisville Cardinals! Chloe and I just love sports! It is no secret who we are cheering for!!!

We wanted to take a minute to catch you up on our week! The first part of our week started in Caldwell County. We always love our time in Western KY. When we walked in the door of Caldwell County Primary, we saw the neatest bulletin board! It was dedicated to our TAILS! In addition to the bulletin board, we saw so many great friends!

Yesterday, we spent the day and evening at Glasscock Elementary in Marion. We met so many new faces. The last photo is one of Chloe and her new boyfriend!!! I have been teasing Chloe, but Mommy made me stop. Anyway, it is a great photo.

Next week, the four of us will be in Washington D.C. working on our next serial story for the newspapers. We can't wait to tell you all about it. I am already rehearsing what I am going to say if I run into President Bush! Mommy says I probably won't see him, but it doesn't hurt to dream!

Okay, Dad says it is time for tip-off! Have a great day! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

Eastern Kentucky TAILS

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Mom, Dad, Chloe and I are at our doghouse in Shepherdsville catching up on emails, cat naps, and laundry! Last week was so busy for us! We left home on Monday evening for five days in the Eastern part of our state!

We began our week at South Elementary in Corbin. When most people think of Corbin, they think of Colonel Sanders. Everyone knows he has delicious, paw-licking good chicken. We learned there was more to Corbin than just Colonel Sanders. They have great students, teachers, and principals in Corbin! Ms. Lisa Hill invited us to South and we had a great day! In fact, the first two photos are from South. The very first photo is of Chloe and me with the principal, Mr. Jones. He was a nice man. He didn't even make me stay after school for detention when I had the accident in the library. Whoops! The second photo is of Kevin and his wiener dog, Twix! Chloe and I wanted to run around the gym with Twix, but we didn't have time. That would have been fun!

We left Corbin and spent Wednesday in London (Kentucky, NOT England)! The folks at Colony were so friendly to the four of us. Just so you know, I minded my manners and did NOT have an accident that day!

As the week went on, the weather got colder. In fact, there was even snow on the ground. Chloe and I wanted to build a snowman, but Dad said there wasn't enough. Oh well, it was pretty to see!

Thursday we surprised our friends at Horse Creek in Manchester, before going to bed early and getting up even earlier Friday for an interview on WYMT. After a book signing in Pikeville on Friday (third photo) and one at Cumberland Falls on Saturday, we headed back to Shepherdsville. We were happy to see our brothers and sisters back at home, but already miss the new friends we made last week!

I better say goodnight. Chloe is already crawling in the bed, choosing a favorite bedtime story. I am going to try to talk Mom into ONE more bedtime snack. It will be hours before breakfast, and I don't think my tummy can wait that long.

Goodnight, sweet dreams, and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

TAILS from Owensboro

Good Morning, WoodyWatchers! It is early Monday morning. Mom and I are up and at it, while Dad and Chloe are still sleeping in the bed. It is not even 6:00 yet, so I thought I would be a good brother and let Chloe sleep a little longer. Poor Chloe was sick with a tummy virus for two days last week. She is back to her normal self now, and we are happy about that. It is no fun to see your sister sick!

Even though Chloe was a bit under the weather, we still had a terrific time in Owensboro on Friday and Saturday. Friday morning found us in Miss Evans' class. They had been following our TAILS from the paper. When I asked what their favorite part was, they all loved the part where we sang, "The puppy on the bus goes Bow, Wow, Wow!" That is one of my favorites too!

After lunch, we visited the students in Mrs. Williams' class. They were so friendly and fun. One student could talk just like Scooby Doo. I thought Scooby was in the room! Rut Row! They had learned to sing "My Old Kentucky Home." It was truly the most beautiful version I had ever heard, and believe me, I have heard that song plenty of times!

Friday was a day we will definitely not forget! We told the kids in both classes to keep their eyes open. You never know when we will pop in again!

Saturday was spent at the mall. I think that is what made Chloe feel better. We all know how girls just LOVE the mall! We signed books at Kentucky's Best. We saw so many of our friends from all over the state - places like Hardinsburg, Sedalia, Covington, Bowling Green, just to name a few! It was exciting!

We will be packing our Scooby backpack again today to leave for the rest of the week. I will be sure to write when we get back home to tell you all about our TAILS and travels!

Be sure to bundle up today. It is freezing! Speaking of, I think it is time I drag Chloe out of that warm bed and make her go outside with me for our morning walk. I am sure Mom will make us put pn our sweaters and scarves!

Have a great week! Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
