From Teddy's Diary: Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Late! Yikes!! My nose was in today’s Washington Examiner, reading the article about Miss Julie and PAL and I lost track of time!

Sadly, I did not get to hear the brand new book Miss Julie read called My Dog Jack is Fat by Eve Bunting. And I LOVE books by Eve Bunting. On my nightstand, I have; Hurry! Hurry!  by Eve Bunting, Little Bear’s Little Boat by Eve Bunting, My Big Boy Bed by Eve Bunting, and every Thanksgiving I make sure someone reads me A Turkey for Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting. Eve Bunting rocks!

I am a lucky dog though … and I got to hear other stories tonight. I heard First Dog by J. Patrick Lewis and Sally Gets a Job by Stephen Huneck. Both of the dogs in the stories were black and furry, just like me! Black and furry dogs rock! I have always been a lucky dog. In fact, I was adopted through Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. Lucky Dog rocks!

You know what else rocks? Crafts! Miss Julie showed the kids how to make cool little doggie treat pouches for arts and crafts tonight. I think I need to make one of those.

Doggie Treat Pouch Craft


  • 1 cloth draw-string pouch (homemade or store bought)
  • Fabric markers
  • Glitter, sequence, and other decorating items
  • Liquid glue


  1. Use fabric markers to draw designs and write on pouch.
  2. Glue decorations on pouch.
  3. Fill pouch with doggie treats.
  4. Enjoy sharing healthy treats with the dog of your choice.

I hear the doorbell, I had better go! It may be company. Company rocks!

Teddy bear cuddles,

P. S. I used to sign off with my initials, TB (for Teddy Bear), until I learned that TB also stands for tuberculosis. I learned that in a book called Tuberculosis by Kim Renee Finer. Books rock!
