Good Easter Sunday morning Zane and friends,
It seems like months since I got to meet the great Zane Train and Gary, Vicki and the Johnpeers in Los Angeles, but it's only been about five weeks! Happy Easter to everyone.
There is so much to share. As you can see in the picture, Dad got to visit Zane, his first guide dog, and I got to meet him as well. What a hunk! Zane is so mild-mannered and I'm such a wild thing! I could tell that Zane could bring a lot of balance into my life and time to "slow down and smell the roses!"
I also got to meet this young kid named Jed, who the Johnpeers are raising, and gosh he's already as big as I am. And he is fast too! And strong! We played tug a lot while I was there visiting. Zane would play sometimes, but mainly I was chasing Jed all over the place to try to take away the bone, Kong, rope tug or whatever he had, I wanted it.
It was Zane's 4th birthday party too while I was there and Kimberly got us a doggie-biscuit birthday cake and Vicki divided it up and then we sang happy birthday to Zane then devoured the cake! Yummy!
I really enjoyed my field trip to college with Gary as he taught his Earth Sciences class and Dad listened intently to learn more about glaciers and they tpes of rock formations they have left behind. Dad even got to work with the studeents to help build glacier trails out of clay. I really enjoyed all the loving from the students as they just adored me, well, they just can't help it!
Speaking of that Easter bunny, Cuzzie, my half-sister, who I live with here in Colorado, has this bunny that she likes to play with. I try to steal it from her all the time, but she gets back at me by standing over my Kong and won't let me get near it. Cuzzie has this stare that just stops me in my tracks. Ugh. She is very intimidating and has such a nasty growl. I'm just a pussy cat. I'm a lover, not a fighter, but I do like to play!
Dad and I just made a couple of whirlwind trips to Tecas, one to San Antonio to help them raise money to cure blindness at the San Antonio visionWalk which raised over $120,000 in a very tough economy! We also went to Dallas to hlep kick-off their 3rd Annual VisioinWalk on May 15 and then to Houston for their Symposium on Research Advances to almost 200 people.
On April 1, Dad and I had lunch with Ms. Phyllis Coors and it was such a delightful lunch and she gave me lots of loving as well.
Wow, I'm tired, I think it's time to take a break today. Didn't my friends at McDonald's say that too? I wish everyone a very happy Easter and a wonderful Spring!
Ruff, ruff and lots of puppy love, licks and wags to everyone, Miss Parka
