Bow-WOW! I found out the day before yesterday that I've been nominated in two categories in the 2005 DWAA writing competition: newspaper column (Pets& Their People, Inside Publications) and Internet feature article ("Stayin'Alive," Agility Action). My dog bowl runneth over! I wish I could go to New York this year for the awards ceremony, but with Daisy's health failing due to cancer (diagnosed the day after Thanksgiving) :(, I can't really make any definite plans. Besides, it's too doggoned cold in New York in February. That's one place I wouldn't blame anyone for wearing a fur coat. It's the only way you can stay warm. I do love it there, though.
I really enjoyed the trip there for last year's event, especially the Dogs in Art show at the Doyle Gallery. I also loved walking in Central Park one sunny Sunday (the only sunny day while I was there) and strolling through The Gates art exhibition. Judging from the crowds, everyone in NYC was in the park thatday, and there were almost as many dogs. I saw a beautiful little King Charles Spaniel. Splendid dog! The only thing that marred the trip was the spoiled egg salad sandwich I ate at a JFK airport kiosk on the trip home. And whata trip that was! My traveling companions were two nasty little characters named Sam 'n Ella. Hope I don't meet up with them ever again!
