It's The Fine Arts, Dahling!

SWMBO and TBG took in some culture today at the Gathering in the Grove in CG. I was a little hesitant at first, as I wasn't sure if I would fit in or not. However, most people seemed pleased to see me, and I handed out some cards, too...not to mention taking in the finest artwork in the Flint Hills!

Along the way, I got to work on some new distractions, including swirling and piled-up leaves on Main Street.

Chow, Dahling! (Get it? Chow? Oh, I slay myself!)

I'm Behind; I Know!'s a good thing I don't write for a living, or I'd be hungry. Lots has happened this week. I'll give you the headlines.

Canine Companions for Independence GRADUATES!
Santiago, Rona, and Donner have all made placements. Rigby is being held over for the next Team Training (don't worry; Jeb was a "holdover" too). We celebrated on Thursday night in KC. Notice the names they put on the cake! Huh! Us pups do all the work, you know!

Visit with Dr. Barstow!

Who promptly stole the GoughNut out of my backpack and started playing keep-away!

Thanksgiving with TBG and his family!
(Who knew there were more TBG's around?)

Anyway, THANKS to all of you, who, for some reason, keep coming back to read about my (mis)adventures! I appreciate all of you!

What's with the Stairs?

We've had some questions about the stairs pictures. I was quite flummoxed by stairs I am quite proud of my accomplishment!

Scary Stairs


Went into the "Big City" Saturday

It's a running joke if you live in the "sticks" about going to town or the big city. Around these parts, Manhattan is the designated big city; LOL.

Anyway, we loaded up my motor coach (aka the Blue Bomb) and headed into Manhattan. Check out my new cover!

We had a lot of stops today. We went to Petco (my favorite), then over to Bed, Bath & Beyond. After that we went to Best Buy and then Greek to Me. GTM has lots of K-State stuff. I had TBG take this pic of me and Deb. Notice she's wearing Gator attire.

I convinced TBG and SWMBO that I'd behave if we went to the mall, so off we went. Here are a few pics of me at the Town Center.

Mmmmm, chocolate!

What the heck???

As we were walking around the mall, I stumbled across a book by.....none other than......

WOW!! That guy takes GREAT pictures!

After the mall we stopped by the bowling alley and watched for awhile. I tried to get TBG to play a game, but he kept babbling on about not having opposable thumbs or some such nonsense!

Overall, had a great outing. I got to meet a lot of new people and some really fun kids!

SWMBO's "Dessert-ion"

It's not my fault that there have been no recent blog posts, friends. SWMBO (She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed) "dessert-ed" me for a week and left me with TBG (The Big Guy). My outings have been mundane, boring, routine (hmmm, kind of like TBG...anyway, I digress...)

So, it SOUNDED like SWMBO had a good reason to leave. She presented with a favored colleague at a conference in Portland, Oregon. However, the pictures she brought back tell a different story! Looks to my like it was all good friends, beautiful scenery, and great food!

Examples of SWMBO's "Dessert-ion"...

Enjoying FRESH seafood

Drinking a FREE Chocolate Shot

Buying "real" coffee to bring home to TBG

Sharing Huckleberry Slump with friends on the Deschutes River (in Bend)

Clarification on Ansel's previous post

It seems that Ansel tried to convey that he's some kind of tuff guy in his last post. Nothing could be further from the truth. His "growling" picture was staged while Deb and I were sitting around that evening.

Here's what was REALLY going on

Oh yeah, "Mr. Tuff Guy" was laying on his Mommy.

K-State Outside Justin Hall

Did you know that there is more to K-State than Justin Hall? No, seriously? I didn't until yesterday! SWMBO had a meeting in Coles Hall--part of the VetMed complex.

And...there was a me there! Well, kind of a me...But a KSDS Puppy-In-Training, Dr. Barstow. He's a yellow Lab like me, but a bit taller and thinner (and older-ha! OK, so it is only by 6 weeks...)

We both had to really work on controlling ourselves, because we wanted to play and bound around. Boy, that was hard. I was tired afterward, and a little cranky when TBG woke me up!
