Party Hat

My Good Writing Buddy 
Mr. William Pooh Hodges 
(You see his picture above) 
Atended a party in honor of his chief of staff,
Mrs. Hodges
In early November. 
He promised to give his party hat away to a reader of his blog.
"The Cat who Writes."
I understand I was a favorite for the hat,
But Pooh could not make a final choice.
Mrs Hodges ended up sending out 
Oodles of party hats to Pooh's readers. 

It was so much fun getting your hat Pooh. 
I smelled and sniffed the box. 
I could smell you, but you never came out of the box.
I keep waiting for you to come over and play. 
Today I sniffed the hat and it smells more like me than you now. 

What? No Mom won't let me put it on. 
For some reason she is convinced I might eat it. 
Thank you Pooh and Mrs Hodges. 

This is Pooh's Blog address. 
Hop on over and visit him. 

Mrs Hodges blogs here. 
I like it when Mom reads her blog to me.

My People, 
I have a really big problem. 
My Dad brought me a 
Black thing that goes over my nose.
I do not like it. 
It feels funny and hurts. 
I can not bark. 
My Dad loves me People. 
I do not understand.

My New Friend Lilly

Hi People,
Just look at my new Internet friend, Lilly! 
What a fine canine specimen. 
She knows how to keep her Family happy. 
Take a look at what her Mom, Brooke Lyne says about her. 
Thank you Lilly and Brooke Lynn for staring on my blog. 

Good Morning Edelweiss"s People and doggie friends. 
I am sending you Lilly's Favorite pictures. 
She is a Great Pyrenees Mountain Dog with plenty of hair to share all year round! 
Lilly just had her Birthday October 25th and Turned 8 years old. 
She is the sweetest, loving, patient, and kind dog. 
Her only down fall is her ability to bark loudly at anything and everything! 
She loves to go for long walks, Play Frisbee, Read books about puppy love and bask in the coldest weather we can get in Washington DC. 
Her favorite friend is Mr. Possum, who visits the garden and taunts her while hanging off the wooden fence. Mr Possum is a nuisance but his beady eyes and rat like tail keep me away from him. 
Lilly is Sweet. Lovable and the best Doggie ever. 
Thank you, Edelweiss,
Brooke Lynn

Baby Time

My People, 
Mom is just all goo goo 
Over this tooter.

A little too funky.

Nephew Paco
But there was another unidentified smell. 
I hope she does not wallow in that one again.

Mom's writer buddies want a video. 
Certain mornings Mom says  I am especially chatty. 
So today at the right time she pulled up the video camera. 
I kept coming to the door to get her. 
I don't know what she was doing. 

Monday, September 22, 2014

She lives in Argentina. 
She walked my friends home in the dark.

I hope they gave her a snack.

Big Adventure: Charilie

You People remember 
He stared on my blog a few weeks ago in a very relaxed position. 
Here he is alert and ready to tell his story. 
Charlie went on a big adventure. 
His family was worried sick about him and spent nights walked the neighborhood calling, 
"Charlie! Charlie!"
Charlie did not hear them. 
He was on a big adventure. 
Mom was worried about him. 
Honestly I was a bit worried about him. 
Mom says stuff can happen out in the night. 
Dad walks me past Raccoons with big claws. 
I would not be surprised of a dangerous encounter. 
I have never stayed away from home over night. 
Mom gets mad if I leave and don't take her. 
Actually she gets mad when I go for a walk and take her just a few steps behind me. 
Charlie, Tell us your big adventure. 
Charlie is not talking. 
Ok Charlie. 
Just whisper it in my ear. 
Come on Charlie.
Tell me.

W. Pooh H. Writes

Dear My People, Doggie friends and other species readers, 
I am pleased to contribute my 2 cents to the celebration of 
Mr. William Pooh Hodges 
Drum roll please.....
Pooh has finished his first book. 
It  is for free on his website 
Pooh is one of my favorite writers. 
I like to read his blog for management advice. 
He runs his household and I run my neighborhood. 
I like to get his advice on my problems. 
His typist is Mrs Hodges, She blogs at 
Mrs Hodges slept in a dog kennel with the new puppy, Molly. 
It is a great story. Read it People. 
My Book is on my website and also free. 
"What is that My People?" 
"Do I agree that Cats are better than Doggies?" 
My people you know my take on that. 
In moms writing class the Tribe Writers I have learned that I can support my fellow writers right to write. I do not have to always agree with them. 
Actually for me the best part of the book is by Pooh's bodyguard Martha. 
I did read the book with an open mind and still have a lot of unanswered questions. 
I mailed my questions directly to Pooh. 
So I am looking forward to the next section of the book Pooh writes. 
Get the book my People. 
Read it to your doggies and kitties. 
I may try paw painting on my copy! 
Love you all my People.

My 2014 Word

My People: 
This is me Edelweiss, Dictating to my Mom. 
Mom said a lot of our writer friends are picking a word to last all year. Mom asked me what my word would be. I thought about my favorite words. 
I ask Mom what her word would be. Mom said her word was “survive”. 
I thought about that. I sure hope Mom survives. She feed me my Iams. 
Dad does not seem to know how to feed me. He will ask Mom a few times a day if she fed me. 
Mom can say, “Yes.” 
Mom can say, “No” 
It does not seem to change what she does. Mostly she types. 
Then I thought some more about Iams. Delicious Doggie stuff. 
Now that is a favorite word of mine. “Iams.” Still I kept thinking. 
Now Doggie is a favorite word of mine. “Doggie” a good word. 
Egg is a favorite word of mine. Still I kept thinking. 
Then I asked my Dad what his word would be for this year. Now that is a word I like. “Dad.” Dad is my favorite people you all know. 
I said, “Dad what is your favorite word?” 
Dad said, “Be Quiet!” 
I said, “Dad that is two words.” 
Dad said, “Quiet.” 
So I decided Dad’s word is “Quiet”. He did not explain why. It seems like he would like so many more words, Like “TV” or “Popcorn.” 
Actually I like popcorn Quit a bit. “Popcorn.” 
I like that word. 
I looked out the window and realized that may be my very favorite word. “Out.” Yep I like “Out.” 
Then I thought about all the things I like to do when I go out. I like to run. “Run” is a favorite word. 
I like squirrels. “Squirrels”. Is a good word. 
I like to chase lizards. “Lizard” is a good word. 
Then Mom told me to come in. “Come” is not a favorite word of mine. 
Then I thought about the things I like to do inside. 
I like to play ball. I have had my ball since I was a little squirt. A while back my ball got sick. Dad brought me a new ball home. It is hard and Red. It rolls pretty much straight. 
Mom did surgery on my old ball and it got well. My old ball is Green and rolls in all directions. I have been trying to teach it to roll straight my whole life. 
My balls hide sometimes under the bed and Dad has to crawl under the bed and get them. But he only does it when Mom makes him. 
So “Ball” is a favorite work of mine. 
“What did Mom say?” 
I have to decide now. Mom is tired of typing. 
“Ok, which word do I want?” 
“Hummm. OK. I got it. The perfect word! 
Yes its a doggie word. I speak Doggie.  
What does it mean? 
Ask your doggie! They know. 
What is your word for the year my people? 
My doggie and writer buddies and cuzbos? What is your word? 
Pooh? Tink? Roscoe? Smok? 
Give me your word. I told you mine.
