Greetings! My name is Nessie and I am a ten-year old West Highland Terrier. Westies are known for being snow white in color. I, on the other hand, am a bit beige today. What can I say? I am a bit of a Tomboy and don’t mind getting dirty. In fact, I kind of like it!

Hi. I am the new Westie on the block! Miss Julie did a double take when she saw me… I think she thought I was Nessie. Hee. Hee. I am a bit younger than Nessie, only six years old, and a bit longer. Like Nessie, I am a PAL dog.

I was in my glory tonight! Had my mate Quincy in the house! He looks
up to me, calls me his Big Bro, though we are not actually related. We are the same breed though, both Cavaliers, and do look a lot alike, except I am much bigger and have slightly curlier hair. I have known him for a long, long time, and of course, we are both PAL dogs.

We do a lot together and yet, I never knew that he likes books as much I do! So now, in addition to playing in the park and having baths together (Yes, that’s true!), we have added library visits to our regular activities. It’s a dog’s life, I tell you!

I just can’t stop droolin’… I love library nights! As soon as I saw my favorite brick building, I started to pick up the pace. I couldn’t wait to get to the children’s room to see Miss Julie and all the kids.

The Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan has given a roof to more writers, musicians, and artists than any other building on earth: Bob Dylan, Arthur Miller, Arthur C. Clarke, Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin, Rufus Wainwright, Derek Walcott, Joseph O'Neill, Patti Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe, William Dean Howells, Thomas Wolfe and too many more to list here.

In November the Chevy Chase Branch features a display of interesting "Tales of the Chelsea Hotel," with a selection of books by and about people associated with the Chelsea.  We have books by Nobel Prize-winning poet and Chelsea Hotel resident Derek Walcott, "Netherland" by Joseph O'Neill (much of which takes place in the Chelsea), "Legends of the Chelsea Hotel" by Ed Hamilton, National Book Award-winning "Just Friends" by Patti Smith, and much more.
