Busy Beaver

As you might recall from my end-of-the-year brag sheet, Thelma Lou was hoping to "sit" for her TDI therapy dog test so that she can participate in an after school Kids Read to Dogs Program as well as become an official K-9 volunteer for Celtic Healthcare. We are happy to announce that Katandy's Li'l Angel Thelma Lou is now a certified therapy dog and could be making her first visit as early as tomorrow.

I must say that I have mixed emotions about Thelma Lou's success. While I am very proud of my little sister's achievements, she has been getting to spend a little more alone time with Mom than I'd like. I know that Mom enrolled her in scent work classes at Good Dog Rising to help Little Lou boost her self-confidence. Two years ago she wouldn't have dared to step outside our backyard without Rog or me let alone venture into a nursing care facility. Clearly M&D's decision to enroll her in the public school system coupled with her exposure to the outside world has worked wonders. She's now confidently shopping at Lowes for power tools with Dad and racking up substantive accomplishments to add to her resume which previously only included beauty pageant titles. But make no bones about it, I am, and always will be top dog in the Knowlton household.

Pink is the new blonde

So we received a surprise with the impending Snowpocalypse that never arrived in Brushtown — Mom got a bonus snow day from work. We didn't really do much except watch some Boob Tube and hang out on the couch.

Unfortunately, late this afternoon Thelma Lou's nose work class at Good Dog Rising was also cancelled. Needless to say, her nose was more than a little out of joint. Thelma Lou wasn't the only one disappointed. Roger started whining like a little Mexican Chihuahua because he'd miss our daily cruise in town with Dad while Mom and Thelma went to class.

After about an hour of Roger whining and Thelma pouting, Mom caved in to Thelma's pleas for "Mom and me" time so off to the beauty salon they went. Dad was not real happy with either of them when they returned and Thelma was sporting a bright pink bob like fashion designer Nicole Richie did earlier this week.

Wonderful News!

Since the holidays are over, one would think that my job of receiving deliveries from UPS and FedEx would have died down, but Mom continues to boost the economy. Grant it. Some of the stuff, like our monthly delivery of crunchies from, is essential. Others, like the Wonder Woman costume that arrived in mail yesterday, we could live without.

Super Lou

Well I have more wonderful news than Thelma Lou in her super hero garb! My natural mother Ch. Katandy's Night Magic "Laurel" turned 12 years old yesterday. Happy Birthday, you silver fox! You're just as beautiful as I remember ya.

I'm sure that Grammy Lee spoiled Laurel with lots of presents from All for the Pet, but here's some icing for the cake. BOL! My AKC Community Canine patch arrived in the mail today! My human Mom was too busy to sew it on my Dog Scout uniform tonight, so what does she do? Makes me do a stay with the patch setting on my snoot between my eyes. As you can see from the photo, I was not real enthused about it. However, I clearly inherited my mom Laurel's good disposition and put up with the nonsense that humors my people parents so much.
