Remembering Our Viet Nam Vets






We visited our favorite local park in Tampa and was pleased to see that they have a new memorial for Viet Nam Veterans. The park is located on State Rt 301 just south of MLK Hwy. It's been recently renovated, too. Stop by if you are in the area!

The top photo describes a dog from that war. the center ones are the Black Widow chopper and then Woogie in front of THE WALL.

Thanks to all the veterans who served to promote freedom!

Woogie Goes to College!







Woogie and I had a fantastic visit to the Tampa campus of University of South Florida (USF) today! He met all the students in Susan Taylor's English class and begged for back scratches. The class watched a preview of Woogie's newest book, WOOGIE'S TRAVELS - DISCOVERING AMERICA.

Woogie even showed off his trick of guessing which hand held the treat. One student, Logan, joined us outside after class to be video taped for his book trailer! Courtney and Ali will be producing the video for us, and we'll share the link when it's finished.

Many thanks to Ms. Taylor and her students for all their support!

New Cover for Latest Book


The beach run won the September poll for Woogie's back cover of his new book - Woogie's Travels Discovering America.

The flag theme was the big hit for the front. I changed it though, to a photo that features Woogie better - so handsome!

The print copy will be available in December; the e-book later this month at Amazon and Barnes & Noble online.

Thanks to all who voted - on this poll and in person!

Nothing like a dip in my backyard pool!

Swimming Spots?




The Colorado River near Glenwood Springs (west of Denver) sure looked inviting, but I wasn't allowed to take a dip.

I found a nice pond on the way home to Florida, but the warning sign prevented me from testing the water here, too.

Oh well, maybe at home, I'll go swimming...

Thumbs Up for the Arches National Park in Utah!







The Arches National Park in Utah was hot (103 degrees), but we took a nice driving tour and only got out of our air conditioned minivan to take photos. Very interesting smells were there...

The statue of the mountain goat greets visitors! We liked the "thumbs up" the best!

Colorado next stop!

California Photos










Had such fun exploring California! At my event in Granite Bay, at the Douglas Ranch/Pet Supply, I posed for kids while they colored pictures of me. I also performed my trick of guessing which hand hid the treat! My new vest was a big hit, too! The Lab pup was also at that store - what a cutie!

After a lovely dinner with friends nearby, where I sat in the cat's water dish (to cool off - ha ha!), we relaxed at our favorite motel chain - La Quinta! Very pet friendly.

The next day we headed north and visited the Redwoods - I LOVED that place! Played Rolly Polly and stretched out on my belly. Lots of pictures taken for my next book "Discovering America" and some on my Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/pages/Woogies-Travels-Promoting-Literacy/196969857000156.

Southwest Desert Region






HOT, HOT, HOT! It was in the 100 degree temps while traveling through the southwest, with the highest at 110!

The Hoover Dam looked like a nice place to take a swim, but of course I couldn't...

Very dry, too, and at one rest stop, I couldn't wander too far - the signs warned of danger! Good thing the bats are around for pest control :)

Next - California!

Fun in Houston!


The Texas Welcome Center was impressive! That's my Pop walking me, and I enjoyed the La Quinta motel in Houston where I posed with my Mom.

And the Lone Star State is really friendly. Romeo is the mascot at Charlotte's Saddlery in western Houston and he greets everyone who comes through the door! They have a great selection for the horse owner/lover, and now they carry Mom's Beloved Horses series!
