Guide Dog so excited!!

Guess what I received in the mail?? A "family reunion" invite for Sunday October 12 at the World Forestry Center from the Guide Dogs for the Blind.  It is open to everyone, including well behaved career changed dogs (that is me) and humans who love them (which is my mom and all of you!).    It starts at 10:00 a.m....we are so excited, we will probably be there at 9:00 a.m.!!!

I might finally meet some of my "blood" brothers and sisters!!
I can wear a sign that says 9/9/99 (my birthdate) and perhaps I will find them.   

So if anyone wants to go, let us know and we will get you a ticket.  I have to get ready, like make an appointment for a shampoo on Oct. 11 & perhaps lose about 10 lbs....isn't that what you do before a reunion???  

Plus, we can all go to the zoo and see the new elephant afterwards!!!  

They're back!

School is starting once again at Willamette U, so our summer of being one of the few people walking around the campus is over.  Today, there were parents and kids stopping me, saying "oh I miss my dog already", etc. etc., wanting to PET me..but, hey, I don't know them and obviously, they don't have cookies in their pockets.  (Mom: Kennedy you are not being very nice or polite!)...

Anyway, the BIG function is tomorrow, where all the professors have on their black robes (now they know why I swim in the creek!) and the big luncheon.  Last year, we accidently got into the procession of "black robes"...I had gone swimming in the creek, and they were lined up on the bridge, and so I just forged ahead ...then the procession got moving and there we were, right in the middle!  Mom called the assistant to the President to apologize, but she said as soon as she heard about it, she saw it was Kennedy and so it was okay. they WANT us tomorrow?  (, Kennedy, we will make sure we are there and gone before 10:30!!)  Fortunately, they posted the entire day events for us!

Here's the pictures from the Capitol and my new friends

Hot Hot Hot

It was sooooo hot on Friday, I walked over to the Capitol Mall, and for the FIRST time, went into the fountain spray at the Capitol.  I was ambushed by the kids there, they all came up and started petted me.  I had to leave, as one of them sat on a geyser and started "shooting" everyone with water.  Reminded me of Uncles Jim & Mike!

All clean and pretty

Mom went on vacation, leaving me at Camp Pearsoll, where we go on five mile walks!!  And I even got a bath.  People have been complaining about my "smell" or "odor", but my mom must love me a lot (or else she has no sense of smell left) because she never could smell it...I thought it was her!  Anyway, I am gorgeous now.  Can hardly wait to go on our walk around town and see the crew at Great Harvest, Mary Lou Zeek Gallery, and Bank of the Cascade..they are probably wondering what happened to me!!
