Uptown Dog

Adventures of a not-so-average mutt making new friends in New York City

Hello There 2012

2011 was a great year, but it ended on a soggy note…because Mom decided that I needed a bath. She always tries to convince me that it’s just like getting a belly rub, except with a little soap and water. It’s true, I love a good massage – but I also hate being wet. That cold slippery feeling is so unpleasant! Plus, I hate smelling like soap. After I get out of the bath, I have to completely re-groom myself so that I can get rid of that “clean” scent.


On the bright side, baths make my fur really soft. I feel like a puppy again! I was in a much better mood after I finished drying off, so I busted out my Dog Perignon to ring in the new year. After that, things got a little wild! I danced with Mom and Dad to “Uptight (Everything’s Alright)” by Stevie Wonder and “Another Day” by Jamie Lidell.

As we counted down the final seconds of 2011, I thought about all the great things that happened to me this year. My Mom and Dad got married, we moved to New York City, I went to my first baseball game, and I overcame my fear of pumpkins. And I almost forgot…I started my own blog! I can only speculate what 2012 will bring, but just I have a feeling it’s going to be a good year for us.
