We're surrounded by the San Bernardino Mountain range out here, and I'll admit they can look quite beauteous at times, especially when they have a frosting of snow. My human has a bug in her brain about how "fun" it would be to drive up into those mountains so I can experience real snow. She lived too long in Minnesota, where Bridge Angel Emma was born (Trav was born in Wisconsin, so he knew all about snow...and cheese, of course). My corgi predecessors apparently had a lot fun in the stuff. I don't know though. It'll be cold and wet. My fluff will get all messy. And my fluff is my signature, ya know. I'll think about it. Meanwhile, here's a pic my human just took of the mountains we see when we come out our front door for walkies. They look nice enough from faraway, thank you very much.

Welp it was pouring rain when I went out for my morning bizness. And the human complains about handling an umbrella, flexi lead and poop bag the whole way. We get back inside and I get rubbed down with a huge towel. Do you have any idea what that does to Fluff? I'm just a total wreck. Mother Nature, shplft!

My Auntie Em passed away the day after Thanksgiving, 2005. I know my human misses her a lot, which is as it should be. I admire and respect Emma, as she was highly intelligent, had a great sense of humor and was very beautiful. She also did an admirable job of training my human. It really pays off, coming into a well established corgi home, ya know! Bless you, Royalton's Lady Emma. You are greatly loved and will never be forgotton.

My human's best buddy, Marilee Woodrow (pictured to the left with a Santa), has been selected to be the Grand Marshal in this year's Christmas parade. She has, of course, been a crucial part of the parade for many years, along with her dear late husband, John. If it wasn't for her wonderful organizational skills and passion for the parade itself, it wouldn't be the wonderful thing that it is every year. She was interviewed recently by a local journalist, and you can read it by clicking on the link below.

Welp, the human decided to enter me into the Hallmark Cutest Dog of the Season photo contest, without asking permission first. Butt, it's for a good cause. If I win, Hallmark will donate $1,000 to my favorite charity, which is CorgiAid, natch! So, vote early and vote often (grin). And thank you for your support!

Welp, I don't know what Bridge Angels, Emma & Travelyr would have thought of this, since my human assures me they never saw such a thing. She went out shopping and brought back something called a sweet potato. I've eaten potato, quite yummy, so I'm wondering why they need to be sweet. Guess it's a "human thang". Anyway, I found that it rolls nicely on the floor when pushed with my intrepid, highly developed schnozz. So, it seems to be multi-purposed. The human will bake it in the oven with the beef ribs tonight. I know she'll give me a taste, of the sweet potato, that is. She sure won't share her stinkin beef ribs, I can tell you that for nothing! Sheesh.

Our dear Twabbie would be 15 years old this day. No doubt his lovely Silbergirl has baked him a yummy chicken cake, which we're sure dear Emma will help him eat. And what better to follow than a vigorous game of checkers wif best buddy, Barney da Corgihuahua. Though you may reside at the Rainbow Bridge, Travelyr Emrys, you are not gone from our hearts and will never be forgotton. We love you and miss you and Emma very much. Oh, and Unka Twabbie? Please eat an extra piece of chickie cake for me, will you? Franks an beans.

Welp, this is way cool. I told the human I needed to have some tunes on my blog, so she found Playlist.com. They've got a whole slew of great tunes. You just sign up (for Free!), add your tunes, get the code and embed it on the blog (or Facebook, Twitter, websites, etc.). And the very first tune you hear is my most favorite song of all, "Concerning Hobbits", by Howard Shore, composed for "The Fellowship of the Ring". Got a few other lovely tunes to choose from as well. I'm very fluffily pleased!

There's a long standing, proud tradition in this house that a corgi always gets to drink up the leftover cereal milk. I'm standing in the paw shadows of the late, butt very great Emma, who did the honors for so many years. The Cap'n Crunch milk I just slurped up is quite tasty, butt I wish the human would go back to Cocoa Puffs. And yes, I DO realize chocolate should not be consumed by any dog, even a corgi, butt there isn't enough in leftover cereal milk to be a problem, no worries.

Welp, I got some gardening done this afternoon. The human did all the grunt work, of course. Butt, I supervised in a very energetic fashion. Got a nice big area cleared on the west side of the yard where the human will plant tulip, hyacinth and crocus bulbs next week. Cuz we live in So. CA, we have to chill the bulbs in the fridge for several weeks before we can plant. Hopefully, the bulbs will all come up and we'll have a very pretty little flower bed! After they finish, the human will move the rose campions over to that bed to protect them from the hot sun. They really got blasted this past summer, and didn't bloom nearly as well as they should have. She also wants to get an Ebb Tide rose. It's supposed to be purple, which IS my favorite color! Here's a picture of yours truly fluffy over near what will be the new bed.

Had a bit of fun wif da hooman dis mornin. Oops, guess it's a bit early for me too, hee hee, I'm typing in Corgese! Anywhoebber, I realized she'd forgotten to set the clocks back last night, so I got up an hour early (no prob, had to potty anyway) and did the Corgi Mindmeld on her so she'd wake up. She casts a bleary eye towards the alarm clock and sees 7:30 a.m., when it's actually 6:30 a.m. Wasn't until we got back inside that she realized what time it really was. Hee hee, that was a good one! And now, I believe my work here is done.
