From Albie’s Diary: Wednesday January 12, 2011
Happy New Year! My name is Albie and this is my first Doggie Diary. I came to the library once before to volunteer on behalf of PAL, however Miss Julie was vacation.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was born in Virginia Beach, VA and I was tiny, tiny, tiny… very tiny. I was born sometime around Memorial Day (Note: If you’d like to learn more about this holiday, then check out Memorial Day by Christin Ditchfield). On my next birthday, I will turn three and I am going to have a Doggie Party and we’re going to have “Pupcakes” (instead of cupcakes because dogs cannot have all of the same treats as humans). I hope mine will be as beautiful and delicious-looking as the ones on the cover of Hello, Cupcake! by Karen Tack. Come to think of it, I should probably take matters into my own paws and check out A Little Recipe Book for Dogs by Jaroslav Weigel or Natural Food Recipes for Healthy Dogs by Carol Boyle. I believe in thoughtfully planned parties and a fellow only turns three once!
I am a bit of a bookworm, or I guess you’d call me a book-dog as I look nothing like the critters in Wormology by Michael Elsohn Ross! I heard several stories at the library tonight. Some of my favorites were: Zoomer by Ned Young, Harry gets lost in Seattle by John Skewes, and Some Dog! by Mary Casanova.
I’ll write more soon. I have to nip out now, I have an appointment with the groomer. It’s a quick procedure, I only get my ears and paws trimmed, not the complete overhaul like Harpo, however I mustn’t be late.
