From Quincy's Diary: Tuesday, July 5, 2011

I am full-grown. Many think that I am still a pup. What can I say? I have kept my boyish look. 

Ways that I am like a puppy

Ways that I am NOT like a puppy

I still like to play ball with my special bouncy.I am not scared by fireworks.
I still like to give lots and lots of kisses, all the time.I understand the importance of companionship.
I still like peanut butter smeared on my bones.I am a responsible and contributing working dog and affiliated with PAL.

There were not many children in the library tonight. Vacation maybe? I tried to read The Dog Who Cried Wolf  by Keiko Kasza to myself. I struggled. I need more practice. I liked the project Miss Julie prepared. I should make one to help me study my letters… But what I really want to do is make one to keep my paw paintings! Here’s how you make a Paw Pad Craft:

Paw Pad Craft


  • 1 notepad
  • 2 pieces of card stock or poster board
  • 1 felt square
  • Masking tape
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue


  1. Cover the notepad with card stock. (Note: Use one piece for the front cover and one piece for the back cover.)
  2. Bind the notepad spine with masking tape to securely adhere the front and back cover.
  3. Cut out a paw pad from the felt square.
  4. Glue the paw pad to the front cover.
  5. Decorate the paw pad with markers. (Note: Miss Julie wrote, “Private! Paws Off!!” on hers.)
  6. Enjoy your paw pad to keep track of your summer reading, to record your summer adventures or however you’d like!

Kisses to one and all,
