Sorry Boys…

Guess what happened to me yesterday?!?

My friend Cody asked me to go out with him!

And Momma said  I could go!  WHOOOOPIE!!

Dear Cody,

I like going for walks and runs on the beach…

Walking around at night to see all the lights….

And playing with bright squeaky things….

Tonight is New Year’s Eve – where are you taking me??

Love, Finn

Where in the World is Finnie’s Momma? And a Giveaway!

I was truly touched by all of your kinds words when I shared my lay-off saga with you.  I have been working at my new job now for a month, and I thought it would be fun to show you around the area where I am now working.  I love this kind of thing because I just love maps.  I can’t explain it.  So, I thought, whoever can guess the closest location to my new job will win a little care package from my gal Finn.

Ok, here we go….

To the west – rebuilding after 9/11

To the west, Zuccotti Park…where are my protestors?  Where’s Pip?!!

To the southwest, Trinity Church

To the south, Federal Hall

To the south, Stock Exchange

To the north – My subway stop in the morning.  I get off here so I can get some fresh air and get a little walk in.  On the way home I go in at a stop that is much closer.

To the east – see those buildings in the background – that would be Brooklyn!  And just in front of it is the FDR Drive.

To the northeast, South Street Seaport and Brooklyn Bridge

Ok, so there you go – this is my new working neighborhood.  Can you figure out a street name?  An address?  Give it a whirl.  And, checking out a map is absolutely allowed!  Send your guesses to me at marianne(dot)d(dot)howard@gmail(dot)com by next Friday, January 13th by noon EST and the closest address wins!

Christmas Eve Walk

On Christmas Eve, we decided to take a walk here…
We saw a lot of this…

and this…

And did some of this…

And a lot of this!

Yes, tons of smiles!  

My Christmas Morning

First, Momma turned on a movie and it played allllllll dayyyyyyy longggg….
Then she brought out a gift baggie just for me!

A card from the Big Guy himself!!!  On rawhide!!  He does exist!

What’s this?

A snowman?  That squeaks?

To the pillow!!

There’s more?!

To the pillow again!

Yes, I love them all!

More?  Oh, those are for Momma and Pops…

I’ll just nosh on my card…

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas filled with squeakie toys and extra treats!


Hewwwow!  Finn here.   One year ago today, Momma and Pops came into the place where I had been staying and picked me up out of my play crib and said “Yes, we’ll take HER!”
Do you blame them?  Look at how cute I am!
Momma said it was because when I was playing with another doggie, he had taken my ball from me and I went over and nipped his ear.  I don’t remember any of that though.
And, to be honest, although they came and picked me out a year ago today, THEY ACTUALLY LEFT  ME THERE FOR ANOTHER WEEK OR TWO!  They said it was so I could get all my shots and they could get through the holidays, but I don’t remember any of that either.  Hurmph.
Tomorrow is Christmas!  May you and your families have a merry and blessed one!

Thank you, thank you!

We loved opening up every one of them!  
And thank you to Lassiter Chase and Benjamin, the Shelties & Cybersibes for our Liebster Award!  We have gotten three awards in one week, and we are just honored.

I kid you not, this picture was taken yesterday at 12 noon, and we did give her breakfast!
