A Message from "The Other" Barkalot Boy

Yeah, it's me, Jake. It seems as though I've been out of touch for days while Just Harry took the spotlight to celebrate the second anniversary of his adoption. Since he is a bit overwhelmed with all the attention he received from his friends, new and old, he asked me to send you all his thanks, and tell you how he spent the day.

Before I do that, though, we both wanted to observe a moment of silence to remember the events of 9/11 and the souls who lost their lives six years ago.


So how did JH spend September 10? In short, he spent it with extra buckets of love from Mom. She actually moved away from her computer and sat down on the couch with him for several hours and he just curled up on her lap and looked very content. (Not to be too cynical, we do suspect she had an ulterior motive, alternating a certain general's testimony with a depressing Cardinals-Cubs game on WGN, the Chicago station that broadcasts here! But, regardless, it's the result -- a Happy Harry -- that mattered.)

Mom, and later Dogdad when he came home, gave him the best present of all, love and lots of play time. Also: ear scritches, butt scritches, and tummy rubs. They played tug-a-dog and looked through the toy basket for new toys that he hadn't played with (some of which I recognized as my toys) .

Sorry to tell you, we didn't have any cake -- but we did both get some of our favorite treats: cheese and green beans and apple.

Now that we've had our celebration, we'll be getting ready for Chilli's beach party and then for Asta's cowboy party -- so our social calendar is getting filled up.

In the meantime, hey dogs, it's time to use our DOG POWER to get our favorite teams where we want them to be. So far, from the response to previous posts, we have Cubs, Yankees, Indians. Red Sox, Phillies -- and of course, our Redbirds.

So Let's Go Dogs!! Go Teams!! Go Cards!!!. WOOF WOOF WOOF WOOF.
