It's starting to look a lot like Christmas

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas everywhere we and lights sparkling like the 300 sextillion stars in the sky.Yep, there are 300 sextillions stars, that is a 3 followed by 23 zeros. 3 00000 00000 00000 00000 000. Or 3 trillion times 100 billion. There is about 50 trillion cells or so, in the avarage human body-and multiplied that with the 6 billion humans on get 300 sextillion. So, with other words :The number of stars in the Universe is equal to all the cells in the humans on Earth-that is indeed a remarkable coincidence.

Home Depot

New car without bells and whistles needed some creativity from Mom to secure my Hot Pink crate in the cargo space. Hooks and bungee cords worked out well. It was a lot of people at H D and I sure put a smile on everyones faces. Too bad Home Depot is not a dog friendly place.I sure would love to go back again:) Tiamo -my Affenpinscher brother is at the Spa today,getting all spiked up for the holidays. I am not sure what to play without him...

Beach Day - October 22nd, 2010

It was a beautiful morning on Saturday, October 22nd the birds were singing and it was dad's birthday. Mom wanted to go to spook hill, but dad said it's more fun to spend the day at the beach... little did he know that mom had already checked-out Jupiter dog beach ahead of time. And happily mom agreed to pack up Tonka (our big Yellow truck) with beach gear and programmed the gps for destination Jupiter.

It took about 2 hours from Miami to get to Jupiter, we found parking right away and right at the dog beach where we were greeted by some most friendly people we ever met in Florida, what a way to start the day!

It was my first time in the ocean and I loved it. I wasn't scared at all even though the waves were high and rough. I found some very nice dog friends to play with so did my sister Amanda, we cannot wait to go back soon.
