Below:  Action shot.  

Me:  "Doggie!"

Gracie:  "Where?"

She's so funny.  We get her every time.  Say "Doggie" and she's ready to rumble!

Guess what?  I got finished my galley edits for this round a week early, so now I just have to wait for the second edit. 

 This. Is. Work.



Okay, now that I've said it I feel better.  

The truth is I don't really hate it.  But it seems pretty boring to me especially after going over it a dozen times.

Last night we had some Trick or Treat fun...

And now I'm remembering a month earlier when we enjoyed the beautiful beach wedding of my stepdaughter Stacy and her now hubby Vinny near Ocean City NJ... 

And then we toured the new casino in Atlantic City...  (below)

It's not looking good for this place right now and I am

 praying for 

Stacy and Vinny who live not real far inland...


Gary's son Jason who lives in Hoboken, close to NY.


For everyone in Sandy's path...  far and wide...  

Be Safe!!

Dear Diary,

Mom is all happy cause she found me a new groomer.  One closer to home.  It seems every groomer I ever get ends up 'retiring from grooming'.  Mom thinks I may have something to do with that but I respectfully disagree with her conclusion on that subject.  I've only ever made one groomer bleed and she said it was no big deal.  
So anyways...  the place is called Strut Your Mutt and the guys name is Kevin.  Hey...  believe it or not, I like the guy.  And Mom said it was one of the best cuts I've ever had. 
 But.  She keeps smelling me and cuddling with me and she is so very clingy!!!  I would like to know where Ms. CarrieAnne from Golden Pines found that neat stuff to roll around in.  It would help me with this Clingy-Mom thing I have going on here.  Gracie.


  1. Sure hope everyone is safe with Sandy!!! Gracie, you look almost as adorable as the little kids!Love all the halloween attire!
    Lovies, Miss Mindy

  2. The cut is gorgeous!

    When you have gone through it two dozen times, you'll be even more bored. Good that you have a proof reader! It does get old... My sympathies. :)

  3. Hi there, I too am hoping and praying for those impacted by the super Sandy...that new casino is probably ruined. Also, I love your new cut Gracie-I do the same thing to Hunter when he comes home from the groomer. It will pass, I promise.
    Hugs, Noreen & Hunter

  4. I do hope your family members do okay with Sandy. Praying for them.

  5. When the book is published, you will love it again. Gracie, you look gorgeous, dahling.


  6. I am saying prayers for all those in the danger way of the storm too.
    Sorry- I have not been around- but mommy has not felt good.
    I came to tell you I love you.

  7. Bobbi, PLEASE let us know how your loved ones are faring with Sandy.... they are in my prayers..... I am also so excited about your book... and think that you had some of the cutest trick or treaters around visit you!!!!

    Big hugs,

  8. Gracie; you look so adorable!! Glad you found a new groomer! Koda got bathed about a week ago and came home with a Halloween scarf too!

    I bet your book is interesting, Bobbi, after all it is going to be published! You just have been dealing with it, picking it apart so to speak, so I can see why it may become redundant.

    Hoping all is safe in the path of Sandy!

    Adorable grands in their costumes!


  9. I am praying for all of the victims affected by Sandy:( SO SAD to see all of the beauty destroyed.

    Hang in there with the book, I know it will be worth it in the end:) BIG HUGS!

  10. OMCs Gracie you and Mom have written a book...we are so very excited and proud of you. Please keep us in the loop when it becomes available.

    Hugs from Madi your long lost BFFF

  11. I hope everyone you care about was OK after the storm. I can't wait for your book!!!
    Looking at the faces of Summer and Gracie, I don't know whose is the most priceless.

  12. Love the Halloween costumes! I hope y'all didn't get too much damage. We got a lot of wind and rain. I've seen pictures of the NJ coast on the TV....very sad!
