Happy New Years - Woo hoo!

This is my new friend, Virgil, from France and his mom, Eleonore. OHMYGAWSH he is such a suave, Continental gentleman, and a champion, of course. He probably doesn't even know I'm alive, but I do like to look at his picture. I'm going to keep a copy close to my heart. I think I'm going to look for a locket charm at Petco next time we go there. Isn't he handsome? Of course, I also have a good relationship going with my pals Boomer, Ozzie, Turbo and a few others. I'm young...I play the field. No need to commit at my young age, is there?
Wow. My second New Year's Eve. I don't even remember my first, and I'll probably sleep through this one, too. What can I say? I'm not into all the whoop-ti-doo and stuff. Me and Mom go to bed early and try to sleep through the cranking of the calendar from one year to the next.

Today we worked some. Balanced a bunch of bank statements. Sounds simple, but it wasn't, and I only know this because of some rather blistering words that came from Mom's corner of the office. See why dogs are so friendly and loving? We don't have to mess with money and bank statements. Trust me. It's better to pay as you go. I give licks and cuddles and that seems to work for me.

Let's see....nothing else really interesting going on. Tomorrow is 2007. Mom says there was a book out by George Orwell called "1984" and already it's 23 years after that, and it's still coming true, she says. Look at me, for example. I'm licensed, chipped and registered. Mom is licensed, bonded, registered, insured, and swipes her Von's or Albertson's card whenever she goes to the market. The government knows what she buys, who she pays, and if they really wanted to know, could triangulate her position between cell phone towers. She doesn't care anymore. Like her life should be so interesting, she says.

Um...oh, Pet Edge has a new catalog out and we're going to go through it for new clothes for me. They have the BEST prices ever. I got my Halloween costume there (see in October 2006 for the link), and only paid $4.99 for it. And we saw the SAME exact outfit in the pet store for $11.99. Such a deal, huh?

Life goes on...year by year. Here's me and Mom wishing you all the very best for the next year. May the mortgage rates go down, the interest on your bank accounts go up, your stocks split and split again, and may there be peace on earth, goodwill to all creatures, human and otherwise.

With love, licks and wags..
