The One with the Plans

What a dull day it was. Mom had to work - AGAIN - and left us TWICE to go to appointments. What in the world?? Not only that, she's saying since "we" didn't sleep well last night, we're going to bed early. I slept just fine. But you know how it is... you gotta babysit those two-leggers 24/7!

This photo creeps my mom out.
Papa did give her the green light to make some plans for a somewhat impromptu trip in the Argosy next weekend. She said it's someplace with a lot of natural jelly... or something like that. I guess we'll find out for sure in a week or so.

The trip after THAT, we're going to a.... oh, Puddles is going to love this... a NASCAR race. BOL! Can you imagine... ME at a NASCAR race? Or even better, can you imagine my MOM at a race? Oh my dogness, that is funny! But papa said it's a once in a lifetime opportunity AND that we'll be on TV. (No, that's not my surprise for you.) But I will give you the details when we get closer so you can look for my floppy ears or at least the shiny ring of Airstreams in the in-field. (That's the inner part of the race track. I'm already learning the redneck racing lingo.)

Tomorrow promises to be even more boring around here but maybe something exciting will happen. Despite the demise of the plum tree, my nemesis and his friends are still around - just a bit further from my post at the sliding glass door. I do like a challenge!


  1. Sounds like you have some good times a coming. Maybe your mom needs to get rested up for it all. Have fun!!!

  2. Oh my dogness is right, Zona! A chance to be on TV while watching cars go whizzing by?! Wowee! You are going to be caught on camera fur sure! I am kinda a prissy, girly dog but if I know you'll be on TV watching those cars I am definitely going to watch! Keep me posted!

  3. Those humans always let their busyness get in the way of their most important task - us. So glad you are preparing for some quality time away. Think of all of the fried chicken you will be able to beg for at NASCAR.

  4. Sounds like you are going to have a blast watching NASCAR! Make sure you get lots of rest!

  5. Remember Zona... NO Chaseing those cars... They are (supposed to be) too fast. Why does that pic creep your mom out? I kinda like it.

  6. NASCAR sounds like fun, but being on TV sounds like more fun. Can't wait to see what it's about!

  7. Zona,! My grandma (83 years old and she luvs it) will be jealous when I tells her that you are going to a race. Have fun and Frankie is right NO chasing the cars. :)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  8. Ha...I haves no use fur nascar to tells you da truth. I prefers bullriding myself. However, I would go just to bes on teevee...hehehe...oh dat rhymes.
    You is gonna haves so much fun on your travels and I can't eait to see what ya'll get, do. I mean what ya;ll do.

  9. Sounds like fun stuff is coming... our parents left us for a while today... we were so glad! That's when we go running through the house finding all sorts of stuff we aren't supposed to play with and drag it out into the living room! :)

  10. Yeah, we heard the same thing about "us" not sleeping well last night - the humans upstairs had no a/c so they didn't sleep well. Well, Ciara says she'll fix them, she thinks she will be very hungry very early:

    Nascar races - sounds like fun, think they could use a few four legged racers, like us sibes?

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  11. No chasing cars....isn't that a song or a group?

  12. Hey Zona - sorry those pesky squirrels are still around. Now that I saved the eggplant the squirrels in my yard are going after the tomatoes!! GGRRRRR

    Your pal, Pip

  13. Woof! Woof! Soon it will not be boring ... NASCAR, WOW!!! Did not know that they allow dogs in the venue. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  14. miss zona!
    really, nascar?? VROOOOM! heehee. i think it's cool that you are gonna be in the inside part of the track. mama says it's only red neck if you wear camo nascar hats or shirts or somethingie and are missing a couple teeth, so i think ya'll are all good! bwuahaha. ;)
    sleep tight 'n sweet dreams!
    the booker man

  15. At least your mom and dad are planning to go places where you get to go with them! That's a lucky thing in my book! I hope you have tons of fun!


    P.S. Are you going to wear Billy Bob teeth?

  16. We can't wait to find out the details of all this. Daddy watches a lot of auto racing so maybe we'll get to see you on the teevee. That would just be the most exciting thing ever. Maybe they'll let you be a flag dog. That would make the whole thing more interesting, don't you think?

    lotsa licks, Lola

  17. Woo soooo live life in the fast lane!


  18. You guys are going to be on tv? How cool!! :-)


  19. Okay, firstly...why does that picture of you creep your mom out?

    And nextly, wow! You're gonna be on the teevee? Like - you'll be famous and stuff? Wow! Can I have your pawtograph?

    On a different note, I really don't think the Day of the Big Surprise is EVER gonna get here!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  20. Hello Zona, thanks for stopping by and following my blog! I'm following you back now. It's always fun to make new friends, isn't it?

    That trip to NASCAR sounds like a lot of fun! I've never been to an actual NASCAR event but I've watched some racing events in person and few times and always enjoyed it. Once, I even got some autographs! The drivers weren't famous and I was just a kid so I don't have them anymore.

    I'm interested to see what your surprise will be! I love surprises! Well, happy surprises, anyways! lol

  21. Hey Zona! Great pix of you...I like the one with your postcard on the refrigerator. I don't do traffic patrol especially on TV, but you sure look like you're having fun. I hope I get to see you at Frankie's wedding. I'll be will be too, right???
    Grrr and Woof,

  22. Zona,
    Sees what happens when you not around in da miss everthing. Sad isn't it? I'm still laughing bout poor Minna...hehehehe!
    Did ou see rankie's new post?


  23. Wow it sounds like you have a bunch of really interesting trips coming up. We don't know what NASCAR is but our mom says we would not like it because it is loud and has a lot of people. And we are super curious what natural jelly is. It is too bad it is boring now - we recommend lots of naps to pass the time when you are bored. That is what we do and it makes things a lot less boring that way.
