My Birfday!

Today I turned eleven and some wonderful friends came over and shared it with me.

Thank you Jaclyn and Andrew for the wonderful birthday cake!

My buddies Louis and Chico joined me in the festivities. 

 I had to take a rest after the party before I got my Parma ham bone!

 Cheers everyone!

Lounging at Boreal Coffee

Thank God for Boreal Coffee!  I went and hung out there while major construction was happening on my building today.  They hooked me up with some comfy pillows and I was fast asleep after this photo.

Winter dog park action.

It was a bit of a mud slog.

But I made friends with Cosmo the Brussels Griffon.
He was VERY hard to photograph. 

But a good time was had by all!

Christmas Travels Part 4 - South Kakalakee and beyond

On the way to South Kakalakee, we stopped in St. Augustine.  

And visited the oldest house in America.  

 As well as Savannah and their lovely squares.

Then we crossed into South Kakalakee where we enjoyed a lovely rest area.

 And I cruised around with my dad in the woods.  

At the river. 

The Edisto.

Visited my cousins.  This is Oliver. 

In true southern spirit, Oliver is even sporting a Christmas sweater.

Meet my XL cousin Titus. 

Way down yonder in the land of cotton!

Saw some interesting signs.

Gone to heaven?

They have grocery stores called Piggly Wiggly in the South!

And of course they sell hunks of cured pork fat.   I could smell that in the collards but never got to taste it!  Such a shame.  Maybe next time the rents will throw some down to me.

For the finale of the trip, the neighbors had raccoons for pets!  These things were about double my size and I wanted nothing to do with them.  Thank you very much, but NO way did I want them free roaming anywhere near me.  They really wanted to check me out and actually reached out and touched my front leg!  

 The neighbor also had a dog named Blaze that was thankfully nice to me.  He has been known to chase people off the property so I was happy not to become lunch.  I was glad he was friendly.  I wasn't so sure when I first saw the Rebel flag.  

I'll leave you with the tail end of the raccoon reaching out to me.

Christmas Travels Part 3 - Neptune Beach/Jacksonville

Dogs are allowed on the beach before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m.   What a pleasure it was to run free!

Meet Daisy!  She was a gracious host in Jacksonville.  What a life she lives! 

She lives right on the beach, has lots of lookout areas, gets to go boating, and has an amazing family.  Thanks for sharing it all Daisy!

I forgot to mention Daisy's giant bean bag as luxuries available to her!

I met this sweet pug in Jacksonville.  

When it was time for us to leave, Daisy came to see us off.  Thanks again Daisy for all your hospitality.  

I'll leave you with the sunset view from Daisy's deck.

Farewell Obi 1994-2010

My Alaska friend Obi passed.  He will be missed terribly.  McCarthy won't be the same without you. 

 Farewell my friend.
