A Very Special Wednesday

Good Morning, WoodyWatchers! It's a beautiful day here in at our doghouse in Shepherdsville. In fact, Chloe and I just got back in from our morning walk. We chased a butterfly, barked at some birds, and even watched two ducks swim around our lake. We love all the seasons in Kentucky, but I must confess that I am not sad about putting away my coat for a while!

I wanted to tell you about a very special morning we had this past Wednesday. Our family spent the morning at Sonlight Preschool in Erlanger, KY. (Erlanger is in the northern part of our state, just in case you are wondering.) Anyway, we were at Sonlight to remember a very special friend of ours named Emily. Emily was a very beautiful and fun little girl who sadly left this world way, way too early. Chloe and I cried when we learned Emily was no longer with us. Mom assured us it was okay to cry. Even though we were sad, we smiled when Emily's family asked us to come to Emily's preschool and meet the kids in her class. As you can see from the photos, it was a great morning! We saw Emily's mother, her grandparents, her teachers, and all her friends. Everyone was so nice to us. They made us cards and letters and even presented us with some special gifts - like our very own picture of Emily. We will never forget the morning - and we certainly will never forget Emily.

It is always sad when we have to say goodbye to someone we love. That is why Mom and Dad are always telling us to give lots of hugs and kisses to everyone we care about so they will know how we feel. In fact, I am going to say goodbye for now and go give Chloe a great big puppy dog kiss! SMACK!

Have a great day! Enjoy the nice weather, give a hug and a kiss to a special friend, and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

A Week in the Life of the Wiener Dogs

Good Sunday Evening, WoodyWatchers! Please forgive me for not writing sooner. Our Scooby calendar has been absolutely packed! In fact, this is the first time I have had to sit down and catch up with you! It was such a busy week, but as usual, an awesome week! I will try to quickly share the highlights.

We kicked off our week at T.C. Cherry Elementary in Bowling Green, KY. We were welcomed with opened arms. T.C. Cherry must love wiener dogs because they even had one painted on the wall that looked just like Chloe! Ms. Whitson, the principal, was the nicest lady. You can see from the second photo that we became great friends!

We left Bowling Green and headed to Lexington to visit our friends at Millcreek in Lexington. We had visited Millcreek in August, but we had such a fantastic time they invited us back! Chloe and I were thrilled to see all our friends again.

On Friday, Chloe and I had to put on our television smiles. We were asked to be on the noon show with Mr. Bill and Ms. Barbara. We love the two of them. In fact, Chloe tried to kiss Ms. Barbara the entire interview! We were on the news to promote the Joseph Beth Booksellers Spring Bookfair. The Bookfair was on Saturday and it was a perfect day! Joseph Beth is a favorite bookstore of ours. We love being with them. Our day was so busy that there was no time for photos. If you are reading this and took a photo of us at the Bookfair, email it to me at and I will put in on our online doghouse!

While we were driving to Lexington on Saturday morning, Dad pulled the Woody Bus over on the side of the road and told Chloe and me to look out the window. We saw the most beautiful hot air balloon. There were lots of balloons in the air. Mom said we will be seeing them since it is Derby time here in the Bluegrass. We love this time of year! The Kentucky Derby and all the events surrounding it makes me proud to be a Kentucky Wiener Dog!

I better go. Bedtime is coming up, but before we go to bed Mom has promised us one more walk and snack! Have a great week! I won't be so long in writing again - promise!!!

Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

A Day at Dawson Springs

Good Wednesday, WoodyWatchers! We hope this finds you in the middle of a great week! It is raining at our doghouse in Shepherdsville today, which gives us a good excuse to stay indoors, take cat naps, catch up on emails, and write in our diary.

Chloe is sound asleep. In fact, she is snoring! I am sure she is dreaming about the awesome time we had in Dawson Springs yesterday. We were with the Kindergarten through 6th grade. It was a blast! The students had been so excited about us coming that they had colored pictures, written poems, and even had a Pet Parade! It was all so fun! Ms. Travis did a super job of pumping everybody up!

Even though our day was spent with K-6, we couldn't have made it without the help of two 7th graders. Jordan and Trey helped Dad with the unloading, loading, packing, and all the other hard work! While they were on a rest break, Dad took a photo of Jordan and Trey with Mom. Chloe and I wish we could hire Jordan and Trey! They were so strong - much stronger than I am!

The second photo is of a fourth grader wearing a John Deere sweatshirt. When I saw this, I had to pull out my John Deere cap so we could match. We make a great pair, don't you think?

Two students were chosen to eat lunch with Mom. The last photo is of Hannah. I am confused as to what Hannah is eating. It looks like a hot dog, but surely not!!!

As you can see, it was a perfect day! We will be posting the pictures on our Photo page in a few weeks!

I better go. My eyes are getting heavy and I am starting to yawn!!! I am going to catch a small cat nap! Tomorrow we will be at North Butler Elementary! I will write and tell you all about it!

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

Peter Cottontail

"Here Comes Peter Cottontail, Hopping Down the Bunny Trail..."

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! We hope you are having a great Sunday and a very happy Easter! Chloe and I woke up and saw the Easter Bunny had not forgotten us! We each had our own Easter basket filled with our favorite chew sticks! Chloe and I wanted to hide Easter eggs outside, but Mom said we needed to use the living room since it was too cold to go out! Speaking of cold, I can't believe we are still wearing our sweaters when it is April!!!

We had another fantastic week. We were quite the traveling hot dogs this week, visiting the Model Lab School in Richmond, Ewing Elementary in Fleming County, and Blue Licks State Park in Robertson County. Each place we went treated us like royal kings and queens! Hugs to Ms. Viohl of the Model School and Ms. Maureen at Ewing. They made sure our school visits went as smooth as silk. Fleming and Robertson Counties were brand new for us. We also learned the Robertson County is the smallest populated county in the state. They may not have as many people as other counties, but they were sure nice to us. We were at the Blue Licks State Park Gift Shop. Ms. Jean Dillon made us feel right at home! She also had lots of cool wiener dog merchandise. I could have shopped all day! We will put some photos of all the schools we visited on our Picture page at the end of the month, so stay tuned.

Speaking of photos, Mr. Nathan (the man who keeps our online doghouse looking so great) said he just put the March photos up, so take a look.

I better say "Arff!" Chloe said the eggs are hidden and it is my turn to try and find them. Therefore, I have to get my Easter basket and skidaddle.

Have a great day! Stay warm, don't eat too many chocolate bunnies, and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
