From Fenway’s Diary: May 3, 2011

Happy Birthday to me! Whoo-hooo! I just celebrated my 4th birthday. It is fantastic to be four. I had a fabulous doggie birthday party with some of my mates. We shared a lip-smacking peanut butter bone cake. Am I a lucky dog, or what?

And the good times keep rolling! Soon I’ll get to chase the seagulls on the beach. That’s one of my all-time-favorite summer activities. Life sure is good when you are a cherished Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

There were many kids to kiss at the library tonight. I love to give a kiss to say “Hello” and a kiss to say “Thank you” and a kiss to say “Goodbye” and a kiss when there is nothing much to say.

There were dog books galore at the library tonight!  I heard Dogku by Andrew Clements, Dog Breath: The Horrible Trouble with Hally Tosis by Dav Pilkey, The Doghouse by Jan Thomas, and Larabee by Kevin Luthardt, to name a few.

I love being a PAL dog and working with Miss Julie at the library. It makes my heart sing. I think I might make one of the cool bracelets like the kids made tonight. On mine, I think I’ll write:

I heart PAL. I heart Books. I heart Miss Julie

If you want to make a bracelet, then here’s what you need:


  • 1 empty cardboard tape roll
  • Rolls of colorful masking tape
  • 2 foam decorative hearts
  • 1 pair of scissors
  • 1 glue stick
  • Colorful markers

And here’s what you do:

  1. Cover the inside of the tape roll with masking tape.
  2. Decorate the outside of the tape roll with markers, tape and decorative hearts.
  3. Design and enjoy your personalized bracelet. Note: Miss Julie's bracelet read:  I heart Dogs. I heart Books.

Go Red Sox!
