I watched the weather late last night with mom and dad and the weatherman said we were going to get some SNOW! Mom, Dad and the little biped were supposed to be gone for the night and our friend Morgan (remember Hennesey? It's his mom) was going to be coming to let us out and feed us. Dad's friend , Doug, from Chicago (from his grad school days and the best man in their wedding), was in Washington D.C. for a conference. So they did a whirlwind tour of the mid-atlantic. Mom and Dad are members of the Philadelphia Zoo and had a Penguin workshop to take the little biped to in the morning.
The zoo has Humboldt Penguins, they are sometimes called Peruvian penguins. They look like this soft fuzzy one the little biped got in the gift shop.
They also visited the Big Cat Falls exhibit. I'm thinking it would not be a good idea to meet up with these cats at any time! The tigers cubs are part of a litter of three that was born in May 2007 at the zoo.
Then they drove to D.C. They had dinner with Doug and then walked about 2 miles in D.C. The little biped was fascinatated by the Washington Monument and wanted to climb it.....he he he...that's what they make elevators for! Their original plan was to stay down there last night but mom and dad decided since the weather forecast was predicting snow and even worse, freezing rain and sleet they wanted to come home to be safe. So then after walking they had to drive about another 3 hours home. They didn't get home to feed us until 11:30PM!
Well, this is what isn't fair...
Can you believe they call this snow???? You can hardly see it, much less get a snow nose.
Little did I know the worst was yet to come. Mom dragged me into the bathroom today and gave me a bath!!!!!! I hate baths! The only good thing was mom used her old hair dryer to help my fur dry a little before going out to go potty.
The bipeds were really working hard today.
Mom and Dad helped the little biped make a gingerbread nativity....
Mom and the little biped made Christmas tree ornament gifts.....
And most importantly Dad and mom worked on our Dogs with Blogs Christmas cards. Mom said Dad was extra helpful and addressed almost 100 envelopes!
We have been receiving cards from our blogging friends almost daily. Mom and Dad are kinda upset though...they haven't received a single card from any of their human friends. I guess who all know who is important in THIS house!
So far we have gotten cards from: Chloe, Ricky, Lucy and Sophie, Randi the Lab/Newf, Cairo the Boxer, Frankie V, Suki and Joey, Lenny, Sitka and Tia, and Pearly.
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann
