Meet Gaia and fun at the park!

Hi Friends,

I had a new blogger stop by my site and wanted to introduce you all to Gaia! Gaia just started her blogging career, so please stop by her site and welcome her to the blogging world. I've passed on the DWB link, so she can join the greatest group of Dogs ever! Welcome Gaia, isn't she just a cutie!
On to other news, after last weeks heatwave here in the windy city, the temperature finally cooled down and I was able to be comfortable again. Of course, Mom had me shaved down, so I'm all nekkid now. He he!! Since it was so nice out, Mom and Dad took me to my local dog park, Puptown.
I brought along my own ball, as I have issues with tennis balls that aren't mine. Sometimes I'll play with them, sometimes I won't. To be sure I'll play, Mom brings one of my own. Dad and I love to play fetch, it's just too bad I don't like to give the ball back after I've fetched.
Super exciting news, I kept hearing my name over and over and would come running back to Mom and Dad, who looked surprised to see me. You wanna know why, cuz there was ANOTHER Kirby at the park! This handsome fella is also Kirby. How cool is that? We had a great time chasing one another and just being silly Kirby's. If you noticed his packs, so did my very nosy Mom. Kirby is just skinny enough to sneak through one gap in the fence bars that is a bit bigger than all the rest. So, after chasing Kirby around Lake Shore Drive (VERY DANGEROUS), Kirby's parents now put the packs on with some light towels in the pockets to make him wide enough not to escape. This is Brady. We had a great time jumping and playing bitey face. When Brady come over to sniff, I had to look twice as I thought he was my neighbor pal, Doolin. All in all, it was a great day at the park!
After searching through all my pictures, Mom couldn't find any real scary eyes shots for Deetz's Scary Eyes Contest. So, we dug up this shot of my first and last at home bath. Needless to say, I am cursing Mom and Dad for their crazy idea of bathing me at home. Now, I have professionals do t, or at least get to go to a bath place that has the proper equipment. Deetz, I hope this is good enough. Guess a sweetie like me doesn't get scary too often. He he!!
I hope everyone got a chance to take part in the Dogs With Blogs 2nd Anniversary Chat Pawty. Mom and I checked it out. We didn't say much, but loved just listening (or reading) what everyone had to say. We are so happy and grateful that there is Dogs With Blogs. It is a great home for all of us blogging dogs, cats, hammies etc...

'Till next time,

Hey, Kirby Boy!

Thanks for introducing us all to Gaia! She looks like a sweet Airepup. I'll go check her out.

What is UP with your ear in that 2nd photo? Don't get me wrong. I like it, but it looks like you're preparing for half of a take off.

By the way, when is *your* birthday? Hmmm? Inquiring minds want to know.

Goober love & smooches,

First of all Kirby, our scary eye pics aren't very scary either. That's the disadvantage of digital camera....pinky is too quick to delete.
Sounds like you had a great time at puptown hee hee what a cute name.
We've been to visit Gaia. Thanks for the introduction. She is a sweety dale.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah Willow Tess & Lucy

Kirby, that certainly qualifies as a scary face. YIKES! Do you make the same face at the salon?

Harry said...

That's quite an Airecut! I think I'd like that actually as I get so warm already, and it's not hot yet here in England (just very rainy, grr!)

I love the dog park! And hey...we both submitted a bath time picture for the scary eye contest!

That was nice of you to feature Gaia! I'm gonna bounce on over to her page in just a bit...
