From Teddy’s Diary: Tuesday August 30, 2011

Almost three… Whoopie! Next month is my third birthday and I am already starting to plan. I will invite my foster brothers and sisters from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, my PAL chums, and my adopted family. I am lucky so many people love me.

After we play catch and tag and pin-the-tail on the doggie, I think we should make Aboriginal Doggie Art like Miss Julie made tonight with the kids. It looked like heaps of fun. Here’s what you do:

Aboriginal Doggie Art


  • 6 Q-tips
  • 6 small cups each filled ¼” with different color paint (yellow, white, turquoise, orange, green, red)
  • 1 sheet of black construction paper


  1. Dip the Q-tip in the paint, and then touch the paper.
  2. Design doggie art with dot technique.
  3. Let it dry.
  4. Enjoy your doggie aboriginal art, or give it to someone to enjoy!

Well, it is almost time to go to bed, and I want to make sure to write down the books I heard tonight in my Listening Log. I like to keep track of my accomplishments.

Book One: Sally Goes to the Farm  by Stephen Huneck
Book Two: Dear Mrs. LaRue: Letters from Obedience School  by Mark Teague
