TAILS from Ohio County

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! It is Wednesday morning and Chloe and I are catching up on our chores, answering emails, and taking CAT naps in between! We have been on the road lately. In fact, our past two school visits have been in Ohio County, Kentucky - one at Southern Elementary, the other at Western Elementary. Mrs. Janice Snodgrass is the librarian at both Southern and Western. She took great care of us!

This past Thursday was spent at Southern Elementary. Southern is a beautiful school with great students and teachers! When we arrived at Southern, we noticed there was a cool paw print on the outside of the building! Chloe and I couldn't believe that Mrs. Snodgrass put that up for us. (We later found out that Southern is the "Home of the Bobcats." Therefore, we paw print was probably for their own mascot, but it was cool just the same!)

Yesterday found our family at Western Elementary. Like Southern, Western was a gorgeous school with terrific people. Every one of those "Western TIGERS" made us feel like family! It was a perfect day!

As usual, Dad took tons of photos. We will put them in the Photo Section at the end of the month. Until then, I tried to pick out a few for you to see. Take a look at the last photo. One of the students at Western had a neat shirt about math! Mom is not the greatest with numbers, so she thought it was especially funny!

I better go! We are loading up the Woody Bus to head to Sand Gap Elementary in Jackson County. Can't wait to "BARK" all about it!

Have a great day! Keep plenty of water in your water bowl and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

A Blast at Bristow!

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Well, Bristow was a blast! We had a terrific day. We always enjoy a day in Bowling Green! Our Dad went to college in Bowling Green at Western Kentucky University. It is home to Big Red and the Hilltoppers. We didn't see Big Red yesterday, but that's was okay because we met so many new friends. Everyone made us feel like family! In fact, look at the cool card the school made us. Everyone at Bristow signed it! It is neat reading all the names. If that wasn't enough, the students and teachers gave us a treat basket. All the students laughed when I stuck my head inside to see what I could find. I know I should have waited, but once again, curiosity got the best of me! The basket contained some toys and some yummy treats! DEE-LISH!

We will be sure to put all the photos up on the site soon. Speaking of on our online doghouse, don't you love the new look? It gets me even more excited about our brand new story!

I better run! Dad is packing the Woody Bus so we can travel to Beaver Dam! I wonder how many beavers will be at school tomorrow! I will keep you posted. In the meantime, stay safe, study hard, and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

Up and At It

Good Morning, WoodyWatchers! It is early - about 5:15 in the morning. Chloe and I are already up and at it. In fact, we just finished our bacon and eggs. We will be leaving for Bristow Elementary in Bowling Green in a few minutes, but I wanted to say "Arff" before we left.

Our 2007-08 Woody Tour is off to a terrific start! This past Thursday we spent the day and evening at Greensburg Elementary in Green County. It was a perfect day! Ms. Elizabeth (the librarian) and all the teachers and students made us feel right at home! Dad and Chloe took lots of pictures. We will put them in the Photo section on our online doghouse at the end of the month, so stay tuned. For now, I included one. This looks like I am the line leader!

Speaking of our online doghouse, you will see a new look soon! In fact, if your site looks a bit different - or funny - it is because Mr. Nathan is working on it! We can't wait for you to see it!

I better go. I have to finish my Jungle Juice and brush my teeth! I will let you know all about Bristow!

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

TAILS from Clarkson

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Our first day back to school was PAWS-atively perfect! We spent the day at Clarkson Elementary in Grayson County. It was a large school with lots of students. Chloe and I loved meeting everyone of them. All the students and teachers made us feel right at home! We will put photos on the photo page soon!

Hope you are staying cool. It is so hot outside. Mom and Dad told us we had to stay inside today. We could only go outside to, well, you know... Dad said it was too hot for our long morning walk. Chloe and I are going to use our time inside to catch up on some of our favorite books, the newspaper, and a game of checkers. She beats me every single time! She is the World's Best Checker player!

I better run! Have a great day! Be sure to keep plenty of water in your water bowl and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!

Workin' like a BIG DOG!

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Hope your week is off to a great start! Chloe and I are busy bees this morning. We start our school visits again tomorrow and we can't wait! The 2007-08 Woody Tour kicks off at Clarkson Elementary in Grayson County, KY. We are getting our backpacks together and making sure we have all our supplies. We love going back to school!

We wanted to take a minute to show you a few photos from this past week. On Wednesday, we stopped by Congressman Ed Whitfield's office in Hopkinsville to see our friends at his office. Mom and I had our photo taken with Mr. Michael. Mr. Michael is Congressman Whitfield's right hand man in Kentucky. It was cool being in his office. Chloe and I minded our manners and thankfully didn't have one single accident!

On Saturday, we took a day to play. Our family loaded up the Woody Bus and headed to Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, KY for the UK Football Fan Day. It was so exciting to see the players. Chloe was kind enough to take the photos so I could hang with the players and try to get the position of back up quarterback! Andre Woodson (#3) is the starting quarterback. When we were having our picture made, he explained I needed to be a bit stronger. (I guess that is why I was staring at his muscles.) At any rate, Football Time in the Bluegrass is right around the corner!

I better run! There is so much to do today so I better get started! We will let you know how our first day at school goes, so stay tuned. In the meantime, keep plenty of water in your water bowl, and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
