I now have a Facebook page

Hi All,

Well, I FINALLY talked MOM into getting me a Facebook page so I can tell everyone what I'm doing. And you know what, SHE did it!!!!!

I'm so excited I can hardly sit still. Now, the whole world will know me and know how great I am !!! (Now, don't let it go to your head. You aren't THAT great - Gracie)

Let's see, what's happening in the near future. Well, Gracie will be going to her 1st show this year in a couple of weeks. She's going to the place I went to when MOM took me out to be shown, I just hope she handles it better than I did.

Chloe and MOM are working on some blankies (they are quilts, Mr. Smartypants - Chloe). Chloe said the top is almost done and I, being the wonderful brother that I am, volunteered to try it out, but Chloe said I couldn't. (She's so mean to me.) (Yeah, right I'm mean to you, WHO ran off with the brightest colored fabric I was going to use so it could be put into HIS blankie??? - Chloe). ANYWAY ...

Can't think of anything else off the top of my head (I'm surprised your head hasn't fallen over with how big it's getting - Gracie), so I'll close for now.

Talk to you all later,

Shows and Stuff

Hi All,

It's me, Travis. I finally got the computer away from Chloe and Gracie.

I hope all of you have heard that the Westminster Kennel Club dog show will be on TV in about a month (2/13 and 2/14, Valentine's weekend).

We are getting ready for the show - MOM is gathering up HER knitting, Chloe is getting the blankies washed and ready to cuddle under, Gracie is getting her voice primed and ready to "tell" the dogs what to do, and I plan on relaxing and wait for the girls to do all the work and I'll sit back and enjoy the show.

MOM said that Gracie has her first show of the 2012 season the Saturday before Westminster and MOM said that all she needs is 50 more points and to have a little more competition and she will be a champion (OMG, there will be NO living with her when she gets it and she's hard enough to live with now). I'm glad she likes that kind of stuff.

MOM was telling me that, since the AKC is recognizing English coonhounds now, that I can go to those shows and become a champion. SHE also said that at AKC shows they don't use benches, that the dogs simply stack themselves on the floor. HMMM, I can do that (MOM has been working with me to stack on the floor) and SHE says I can have snacks while I'm showing. It's about time that this started. I might even try a paw at these shows. Who knows? I might even become a CHAMPION myself !!!!

Any way, it's cold here and my blankies are calling me so I'd betteer go for now. Have fun and I hope you watch the WKC show with your dog.

Bye for now,
