From Fenway’s Diary: Wednesday, December 29, 2010

No, I am not a girl. Everyone thinks I am because I am so pretty and dainty and have long, silky, wavy ears and manicured feet (or Muppet paws, as I like to call them!).

I am a 3½ year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and I love to play with tennis balls. Love, love, LOVE them! You would have thought I would have been named Wilson or Penn or Halex, rather than Fenway. Honestly, I am not much into baseballs. They are considerably harder and less fuzzy and less squishy than tennis balls.

My favorite food is salmon. Yumm-o! And I love the ocean. The beach is fun, too. Such fun!

When I am not frolicking on the beach or enjoying a tasty bite of salmon or amusing myself with tennis balls, I volunteer. I am a PAL dog, and I am committed to making the world a better place. Tonight was my first time at the library, although I plan to come regularly in 2011. It was a rewarding experience. I learned a lot from all the books I heard. I listened very attentively to How to be a Good Dog by Gail Page. I suppose there is always room for improvement! The Merry Chase by Clement Hurd gave my mind a bit of exercise and Bittle by Patricia and Emily MacLachlan was a lovely story of acceptance.

Several of my other Cavalier King Charles chums (Pup-a-Roo, Aubrey and Quincy) come to the library, too. Check out the famous portraits of our ancestors!
