Today is definitely a no sun Sunday. The sun isn’t peaking through at all and the entire sky is full of clouds. It definitely doesn’t feel like a beautiful May day. No, it kind of feels like a go-back-to-bed day. Today might not be the best day for outdoor fun but Mommy & I DID get something accomplished. We picked up food for me. It’s nothing special but at least we took care of that errand.
Even though it’s dull and dreary out there, Mommy and I have tried to go outside when the weather permits. As a lot of you probably know, I don’t go outside if it’s really raining. Instead, we keep our eyes on the window and when the rain lets up or stops, that’s when I go outside for little play breaks.
Mommy and I just came inside and, boy, did we walk inside just in time! As the door shut behind us, I heard the raindrops falling again. Sigh. At least I know Mother Nature is getting the rain over with quickly. I looked at tomorrow’s schedule and I think it is going to be mostly sunny. Not only will that be good for playing outside but it will also be MUCH BETTER for my hair!
How are you spending your Sunday? I hope it’s more exciting than mine! Please entertain me and tell me about it!
You guys probably don’t know this about my Mommy and me but we’re really big New York Rangers fans. Mommy became a fan before I was even born. Even though we live in New Jersey, we don’t really like New Jersey’s hockey team. Actually, we don’t like the Devils at all. We don’t even like them a little bit. Right now, the Devils aren’t a big threat to us because they’re really having trouble winning games but when they play well, we get kind of nervous.
Mommy went to the Rangers game with Grandpa last night. Grandma babysat for me. I hung out with Aunt Molly and she didn’t bother me at all. It was like a miracle! When Mommy got home, she told me that the Rangers scored SIX goals!! We watched a game together tonight and they scored EIGHT times!! Five of those goals were scored in under three minutes. That’s a record!!!!
There’s a reason that I’m writing about sports. I’m not just writing about them because I think the Rangers rule. I’m not just writing about them because I wish that Henrik Lundqvist could be my Daddy. I’m not just writing about them because I’m a little annoyed that Mommy didn’t ask ME to go to Madison Square Garden with her last night.
I’m writing about them because a few weeks ago, Mommy found out about a great event. The name of the event is Rangers Dog Walk and it is a walk in New York City with Coach Tortorella and several of the Rangers players. Can you imagine ME walking with the Rangers?! Those men are so handsome; I think I would totally blush the whole time, while making sure that I kept my cool. Anyway, the event is to benefit homeless pets and to help end animal abuse. Doesn’t that sound AWESOME????
There is only one problem with the event. Mommy TOTALLY dropped the puck. The walk was LAST SEPTEMBER!!!! It was in September of 2012! Good work finding out about it NOW, Mommy. Sheesh. I really need a new Social Director. They’d better have a walk in 2013. I’m all set to shop for it. I know what I’d wear. I’d get a Rangers jersey, leash, and collar, and I’d wear a pretty red or blue bow in my hair. I totally root for the Rangers at home so I want them to see what a fabulous furry fan I am!
Mommy said that we are going to be positive and assume that they’re going to have another walk this fall. Soooooo, that means that I can start SHOPPING!!!! When I have my entire outfit all set, I’ll be sure to post pictures and you can let me know if I need to tweak any of the accessories!
Do you have a favorite sports team? Has your team ever had events that have included pets? If so, I want to hear about them because I’d love to know what to expect!
In case you didn’t see on my Facebook page, I’m welcoming a new sister into my family! I thought that Mommy had forgotten to give me an Easter basket full of goodies but she actually had bigger plans in mind! As I said on Facebook, I’m getting an Easterpuppy! I didn’t want to say anything too soon because it was only finalized today. My baby sister seems really, really cute and I even got to name her!
I went through lots and lots of names. It was pretty fun searching for the ideal name for my baby sister and I chose the name Lila Brooklyn. This name isn’t just any ol’ name. I put a LOT of thought into it. Here are some reasons why it is special:
- My middle name (Sydney) is a city so I thought that Lila’s middle name should be a city, too.
- Mommy likes middle names with a “Y” in it. First there was Cassidy Tyler. Then there was Cooper Dylan. Obviously, my name is Raegan Sydney. Brooklyn is absolutely perfect and Mommy agreed! The “Y” tradition will continue!
- Lila is ALMOST like lilac. Lilac is a shade of purple, which is my Great-Grandma’s favorite color.
As you can see, her name is very, very meaningful.
There is one additional thing that I should tell you about my new sister. SHE IS AN APRIL FOOLS’ JOKE!!!! Hahahaha. Gotcha!
Do you think that Mommy has room in her heart for anypup but me? Do you think that Mommy has room in her budget for clothes and bows for anypup but me? Mommy’s attention is indivisible and it all belongs to ME! We’re a fabulous duo. Why would we mess with perfection? Hehe.
Thanks to everyone who played along, whether you knew about the joke or whether I fooled you! Thanks to the people who called Mommy to ask her what was happening, when you could have ruined the prank online instead! You guys are the best!

PS- So…this means that Mommy DID forget to give me an Easter basket full of goodies. Oh boy, is she in trouble! We’re going to have to do something about that now.
UPDATE: The “no Easter basket for Raegan” situation has been fixed to my satisfaction. The solution will be arriving in 2-5 business days.
My niece, Raegan, asked me if I wanted to blog tonight because today marks a really super-duper special occasion. It’s my first anniversary of becoming a Huston. One year ago today, my parents (Raegan’s grandparents) came to my siblings and me to pick me up. I was eight weeks old. They actually first met me when I was seven weeks old but I was too young then to go home with them so they had to wait the extra week.
My first few weeks home sure were fun. I didn’t sleep at all!!!! It was like a constant party but I was the only attendee. Everyone tried to sleep through my partying so, eventually, I started sleeping too. Now I know my routine and I guess sleeping isn’t too bad. In fact, now that I’m a big girl, I sleep in my parents’ bed. I LOVE it when one of them goes to the bathroom in the middle of the night because it gives me the perfect opportunity to steal a pillow! Hehe.
Over the past year, I graduated from Puppy Kindergarten and Basic Obedience. I learned a lot and I listen a little. I have all the information from school stored in my brain and I use it when it’s important like if there is a treat involved. Boy, do I love my treats. Speaking of treats, do you know what my favorite thing is? I LOVE Kongs stuffed with treats and then topped with cream cheese. That’s the best. My parents leave one for me whenever they leave the house. Yum!
Over the past year, I figured out what part of the house I like the best. I like the staircase most of all. I hang out on it all the time. I bring my toys there, run up and down the steps, and nap there all the time. Sometimes the staircase looks like an obstacle course! It’s SO much fun!
This winter, we discovered that I LOVE snow! It’s awesome. I guess I’m different from Raegan in that regard. She doesn’t like snow (or rain, for that matter). I like jumping in snow so walks in the white stuff are pure joy! I pop and bop around like a little bunny.
I haven’t been on too many vacations but the two getaways that I had were to the Berkshires in Massachusetts. I really like it up there. I went with my sister (Raegan’s Mommy) and Raegan one time and I went with my parents another time. I think that I want to go to Vail on my next trip. I hear that the snow there is fabulous!
So, today is my first anniversary with my family. I love celebrating milestones so this is very exciting and I’m happy that my family (Lauren and Raegan, specifically) made a big deal about it. I’m also really thrilled that all of Raegan’s friends, both online and offline, have been so nice to me. I can’t wait to see what kind of adventures and fun I have during my second year. Bring it on!!
