Happy New Year

This is a time of year when we think of our old friends

like Enzo

and Gomez

and Biggie.

This is a recent portrait of me and Charlotte.

This is a dog I know who is called Lucky. He is lucky because he got adopted when he was old not a puppy like me. He is 12 and very nice. He is lucky because the other day he ate glass but is now all better!

I am lucky because my sister is staying.

I hope you all have a very good year.

My Christmas

We went to the park to see who was there.

It was Enzo and Charlotte and Harley.

Charlotte is shaking hands

Harley is asking James for food.

Knut came over in the afternoon wearing his Christmas hat

and gave me a really good present that I am looking round 
making sure no one else is getting.

I told him he could look at my tree and even eat

some of the treats I was sent by Mr. Chewy because he wanted to know if I liked them. (Mr.Chewy, wanted to know, not Knutty.) Well, I do like them and he can send me more whenever he wants to.

If I am too busy to write too much because my sister is staying, 
I hope you have  a wonderful New Year.

Today is my birthday and I am three.

So we went to the park and I wore my jingle bells and one fell off.

We walked past the diner, and you would think it was
 snowing, but it is not. It is just painted on the window.

This is Galahad, that people who know him well can call him Gally.
In this picture it is like the olden days.

My good friend Milo was there and

Nico who used to scare me when I was little,
but he is gentle really.

Baxter was there and he likes being with us big guys.

When we got home, they were trying to fix the cold water
faucet and Knutty was over to wish me happy birthday
so we were helping.

Below you will find a picture of Baxter at his house.

He thinks he is a Christmas present.

This is what has happened so far on my birthday.
I am now going out for another walk.

I hope you are having a good day too.

My Week by Buster

A lot has been going on. For one thing it has got colder.

So Baxter is wearing his coat to the park.

This is a good picture of Gally.

Sometimes people come to the park that I have not seen before.

This is Ella who has a face like one of the cookies you can get in a shop that is called a black and white cookie. Someone said she was like an old episode of Star Trek but I do not know Star Trek. She was nice anyway.

This is another matter entirely. A big, gigundo, gi-normous dog came to the park and talked to Charlotte.

I think he likes her. This may be a problem. I do not know.

This is a lion that was in a shop. If I looked like this I could get the big dog to go away.

This is the cat on 22nd St outside

And spying on me from inside.

This is a funny story. Bodhi from downstairs had an adventure. You can read about it here. It was even in The New York Times. When he was a puppy I wrote about him here.

This is a picture of me that Alicia Padron did in a letter to Henry. She is a book illustrator and we got her book for Henry so she did my picture that you can see.

This is picture of when Knut last came over.

I hope you are well.

Festive Thoughts on Red and White

These are some of the things I have been thinking about.

They made some Christmas cookies and I am looking at them.

Here is me pretending that I am not thinking about the cookies which I never got.

One thing I am thinking about is that lots of Christmas
 is red like the berries the florist's cat is hiding behind.

She is now looking at me. There are berries on trees, but in a shop you have to buy them.

Yesterday there were lots of people dressed up in red and white.

It was a good day because I had a walk with DreamDateDarcy
 who is mostly white except her mustache.

Olive is pretty much white and was playing with some
 dog that I do not know who it is except it is white.

This is not red and white but it has a bird in it, in case you like birds.

About My Week and Some Scary Stuff

Things started off pretty normal

This is me and Oskar checking things out at the park on a foggy day.

And me and Gally and Olive at the same place.

This is a portrait of Dizzy who is a puppy as you know

and Tyson who is my age probably.

There is a vet by us that gives out free samples of stuff, and I have a sample everyday, but it is not the vet I go to, but some other dogs do. You can see one in the window.


Yesterday Paz came over and we all went for a walk down
 22nd Street and the cat with the racoon tail was there

and the other cat that was looking round to see what was going on.

It has not been very cold yet so there are flowers and things.

But what I wanted to tell you about was that Fatty is getting nearer my house.

I think she is heading this direction

and yesterday outside our window was a HAWK!
This is really true. Mum said he could come in to eat the mice, but I said what if he is in league with the evil Fatty-tribe? But Mum said she and Dad would save me.

I hope things are more peaceful by you.
