So Near and Yet So Far

Ah, here we are, just eight miles away from the Center of the Universe. Eight miles. So much has been going in our corner of the world -- that end of the Florida peninsula -- so close to Haiti -- where survivors of the earthquake are being treated in our local hospitals and children are attending school and Haitian-Americans who live here are waiting for flights to see how their struggling family members are doing.

And then that other event that has brought fans from all over to participate in what has become not just a football game, but what Bob Schiefer from Face the Nation today called something akin to Thanksgiving in its ability to bring people together.
And it's just eight miles from our house.
Excuse the pun, but, admittedly, we don't have a dog in the hunt since neither our Miami Dolphins nor the St. Louis Rams are in the fray. But we have been treated to non-stop coverage on radio and TV and it is just around the corner.
Having nothing better to do, however, Dogdad decided that this weekend was the weekend we would lose our winter coats. How weird is that ? Because, clearly, you can see that we saw our shadows and winter is not yet over!
Not even here.

So Jake, whom do you think we should root for????

Well, Just Harry, we kind of identify with the Saints... New Orleans, Katrina, your rescue, right?

Yep, that makes sense!Eight miles away, huh?.

Can you hear it? Can you smell it?


We're ready! But let's not forget about those others who need our help!!

I had completely forotten that it was happeningin Miami this year until a friend reminded me yesterday! I almost went to run errands up there but glad I did not 'cuz I hear it was crazy. Yeah, I feel a little more strongly for the saints being in the southeast at least.
Stay warm without your coats. It is supposed to get chilli this week! You do look cute though. Who knew you were so spotted!

Hey Guys...the excitement has started and the delicious smells must be wafting your way. We lived a mile and a half from the stadium in Tempe, and we could smell the hot dogs, even though the hoomans couldn't.

We enjoyed that.

What we didn't enjoy were the dam*ed dirigibles. They made the scariest noise when the fired up their burners. Oh, and speaking of burners, if there is a Blue Angel flyover, make sure you have your paws over your ears before they kick in the power climb!

Ah well, you will do just fine if you stay close to DogMom and DogDad. Maybe you can score some foodables, too.

You two look so slim and streamlined with your new haircuts. Did you make some yarn from those sheared coats? (May need to knit a sweater if the temperatures dip again!) I had to wear my hoodie to the beach today so I just ran into the ocean and plopped down in it! Ha!

We really couldn't care less about the Super Bowl...now the Oscars on the other hand...

Your pal,

Petey

We aren't much into the Snooperbowl around here. Our mom watched the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet! (Oh, and the Ghost Hunters marathon)! She's kind of weird! We hope the airplanes and blimps didn't scare you too much! Our mom is talking about Aire-cuts, but says it's still too cold. It is 25 degrees this morning!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Hi Guys, we think you are both looking super duper smart in your pics today. We agree it seems a little cold for haircuts but you do look stylish.
Seems like there is a lot happening over there.

Hey Guys! Man, are you lucky, or what? Miami...home of the Super Bowl that made history.

Loved the comment on my blog that "no terrier is ugly". True, indeed. I can't believe I said that about myself considering how vain I am!

Irish Love, McG
