So, I tend to be pretty vocal in the truck as we are riding down the road but my folks finally got it the other day. They realized it wasn’t just random barking (it never is!)….They distinctly heard me saying ‘Steak, Steak, Steak, STEAK!’ as we were passing all those black angus in the field……


Moving to Montana Soon….Gonna be a Dental Floss Tycoon (yes I am….)

Lets sneak up on himWe have been really busy so mom is behind the times posting for me, AGAIN. First, I wanna say what a pawdalicious time I had at the Tripawd Pawty last weekend. Sorry about the misunderstanding Montana, I don’t know what I was thinking! Caira Sue, girlfriend! I wanna play with you every day! Shelby, you are so pretty, you reallyShelby! ARE a princess. And Cemil, you are such a big happy guy you just make me smile. Papa only took a few photos this time so it was great everyone else got busy too!

So, we are on the road now. Five states in three days and now we are in MONTANA! Woohoo! We are hanging out in this cute little cabin near Glacier for a few days. Gonna go into town and see if we can find a ‘WiFi HotSpot’, whatever that is….I only know about the kind I am getting on my butt. On the way here we stopped in Chemult OR for the night. The place we were going to stay said the had given all their rooms to firefighters (we saw a big fire on the way… I guess they weren’t lying). So, they paid for us J to stay at another place up the road. Pretty funky but a wild scene going on….all these folks camped out all around CR does Dunhamthe motel ‘cause they were harvesting Matsutake mushrooms to send to Japan. They had buyers in tents right there and supposedly the mushrooms get to Japan within 48 hours! I bet I could be a mushroom hunting dog!

Then we went to Walla Walla, WA (saw Mt Hood and Mt Adams—boy are they big! With Wyatt’s new favorite, SNOW on top) to stop by Dunham Cellars, home of Mmmm chiknThree-legged Red, a great wine named after a great Tripawd, Port the border collie! We got Wyatt a little souvenir and mom and dad got a lot of wine! Then we went to KFC!

Tripawd Pawty Preview!

So, Caira Sue beat me to the punch but only because I can’t type and my mom is soooo slow. We had such a great time at our tripawd pawty preview get together last Saturday!!!!!

Caira Sue is just screamin’ awesome! I could chase that girl all day long! And Cemil, what a sweet, dignified young dawg! I’d be happy to have him at my back any day—he is soooo biiiig! He could just sit on the enemy and that would be that! I hope there are still mud puddles on Saturday! Yeah!

See ya’ll, ya better be there or be sooooooo square!

WooHoo Tripawds Rule!!

I’m on the Cover of The Rolling Stone!!!!!!

Hey Everybody!!!!!!!

I won a big contest and I’m on the cover of the Rolling Stone (Mom sez remember Dr Hook and the Medicine Show?)! How cool is that? Annie Leibovitz took my picture and ALL (too bad she can’t keep the rights :))! Oh, wait, WHAT?

Oooops, Mom sez I am totally confused, its not the Rolling Stone at all! Its a local newspaper for dogs called FETCH the Paper. She entered a bunch of photos of me and Smokey in their photo contest and she won in two categories–Best Photo Caption and Best Purebred (thats ME!!!!)! Hah, hah, Smokey Dokey didn’t win Best Mutt, did he now? Check me out in all my glory! Make sure you scroll all the way down through the winners!

This is better than winning that Scrap thing any day! Woohoo, I am number One with a bullet!!!! Twice!!

p.s. from CR’s mom–OMD, this thing has REALLY gone to her head! And we thought she was hard to live with before!
