What? Does my face break the camera?

Hello my friends. You may be wondering why you haven't heard much from me lately. As you know, Mommy's been very busy working. She even took me to work last Friday. But since then, she hasn't taken a single photo of me. 

She went to get her hair colored on Thursday night at this cool place called the Red Market Salon in the Meatpacking District.  It's cool because it's open really really late. Like, from 2:-- p.m. until midnight!
Just look at those nice smooth wood floors. Perfect for playing catch! And she even brought along my favorite tennis ball. I was really good and quiet for the first hour (Mommy's hair takes a LONG time) but then the second hour, everyone was playing with me and I was running all over the place! I had a blast! They said I was the cutest dog they'd ever seen there. 

But did Mommy take a single photo of me? No!

She didn't take me to work this Friday. And after work, she went and had physical therapy for her dumb ankle. Did she bring me? No! And guess what? One of her exercises, she has to stand on her bad foot and throw a ball into a net. I could totally rock that!

Then she went to a place called Rescue Beauty Lounge and got a manicure with this green color called Recycle. Looks like green grass to me. Like the grass in the park where she could have taken me to play, instead of getting her paws painted...
But no! To add insult to injury, she went over to Asta's house without ME! And stayed and hung out with Asta and her 2-leggeds and didn't come home until it was time for our last walk of the evening. 

We walked Asta and her 2-leggeds part of the way back home. Did she take any photos of me?

On Saturday morning, we went to the dog run. But it was soooo humid and there were NO tennis balls to play with and only one other doggie, Libby, who is on week 3 of "mouse-watch." She just sits with her nose in the far corner of the run like she's on time-out and waits for a mouse that she saw for a nanosecond last month! It was no fun. And no photos. 
This is an old one from weeks ago. In the afternoon, the rains arrived from Hurricane Hanna. 

Look what I had to wear when we went for a REALLY short walk around 7:00. (Note: This is NOT a new photo either.) It was raining really hard so I just left one fast pee-mail and we scooted back inside.
Around 11:00, the rains had stopped and we went for our last walk of the night with Bear. We walked past some people hanging outside Cafe Cluny and I did my business and Mommy was tossing away the poop bag and when she turned around, she made eye-contact with this little girl:

Actually, Mommy was surprised that Mary Kate was almost adult size. Okay, pre-teen size. MK smiled at me but did she take my photo? NO! (Mommy read today in the paper that one of the scruffy boys she was with was Chase Crawford. He just looked like any other scruffy boy.)

Sunday was bright and sunny and no humidity! So did we get to spend the day together? NO!
First, Mommy was off to church to teach Sunday School  Naturally, she didn't take me (although when I was a puppy, she did bring me to an evening meeting after she picked me up from doggie day care!)

Here's what I was doing...

It's Spring '09 Fashion Week in New York, so after church, did Mommy come home? NO! She went to the Charles Nolan fashion show. I'm a fashion hound. Did I get invited? No!

But look who was one of the models! It was Dara Torres who won Olympic Gold in Beijing!!! She walked the runway twice, with her adorable toddler. The first time, she had on an old-fashioned style swimsuit and Mommy said her legs were phenomenal! I have to go with what she told me, because I wasn't there! 

Isn't this a pretty dress that Dara wore the second time she walked the runway? Mommy talked to her backstage afterwards and asked her what was scarier—this or Beijing? She laughed and said, "Beijing....but those heels were pretty scary!"

So did Mommy come home afterwards and take me to play along the river? No!

Here's what I was doing...
...while Mommy dashed in a cab to South Street Seaport to participate in a reading of Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself." There are 52 verses and Mommy read...verse #50. 
FINALLY, she got home around 6:30. We went for a quick walk - no camera, natch! - and then came home for dinner. 

Guess what I did?
Mommy just got something called Photoshop on her computer, so MAYBE this week we'll have some photos from our awesome Boys-Only trip to Las Vegas. In the meantime, maybe I can do something so cute she'll have to take some new photos of me!

Hi Petey,

Oh, you poor, POOR PETEY! We were wondering what was up with you and why we hadn't heard from you all this time, and it turns out you were being bored. Not fair! WE WANT PHOTOS OF PETEY!

We haven't done much at this end either, though, as the weather has been pretty rainy. I'm better though! That's good news!


Amber-Mae said...

Oh, how could your Mom go to Asta's house without you? That's terrible!

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Wow, they let doggies go to the Red Market Salon, we never get to go anywhere. We wish Mommy could take us to Today's Hair while she gets beautified. ~Scylla & Charybdis

Mommy wants to go to the fashion show, can't imagine why. ~Socks

Cripes your mum has been busy. Hopefully the neglect has come to an end.


Gus said...

hey Petey: My muzzer is really bad about pictures too, I think as long as you are getting food and exercise, it is OK to use old photos. Plus, then "they" get all flustered because people know they are neglecting us and not taking pictures, and they get out the camera! So you are doing great!


Abby said...

Hi, Petey...

That is awful...I think you should come live with me immediately...

My Mom is always taking pictures...I never let her get one of my face, though...It's a game we play...

Abby xxxooo

Daisy said...

Your mom sounds really cool and hip! My Mommie colors her own hair and just goes to a normal salon for haircuts.

I miss seeing new photos of the Petey!

Deefor said...

Hi Petey
It's like that around here. Whenever something exciting or even bad and fun happens-- no camera. But all the pictures are great-even if they're not all new. (Going to see Asta without you borders on unforgivable.


Gucci said...

Aw Petey! There's always Puparazzi everywhere I go and it's awful!! They never get my good side and always make me look fat!! Count your pawesome blessings buddy.

I didn't know you were a fashion pup tho...tell me what's in for fall 2009 dog beds...Mom says I need one so she can have the bed to herself sometimes. :/


Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh my certainly seem to be well rested after your oh so boring weekend!!! Your mom did all of that cool stuff...and you were just ignored.

I was wondering if you'd like to um go out to dinner and to a movie? I do have a date with Sunny's brother Scooter, Archie and Butchy this week, but I'd love to see you again Petey! I promise not to gnaw on ur heart or any other internal do seem to have the most original dates...

Barkies, Sweet Petey!!!

Stanislaw said...

you've got to make your folks brush up on their training. Big Pupi is being forced to do that, so maybe you could work on your humans a little? They must take you everywhere!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petey!
You have lots of No's in your post!
I think your mom needs an extra day to rest from all those activities!
I hope we can see more of you soon!
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

omdog talk about a totally disappointing weekend :( Sounds like your Mom sure did have a lot of fun though. Mom loves that nail polish color! if she would have seen that teeny tiny Olsen Mom would have bought her a sandwich and made her eat it!! :)

Simba and Jazzi said...

Dropping by to say hello. Hope you had a good weekend.

Love ya lots,

Gaia the Airedale said...

Heya Petey!! How have you been?! My momma has been busy back to school too, sigh, I have to get left alone in the mornings until she comes back in the afternoon. But she usually brings me home a chewie so it isnt so bad! Anyway I still think you look great on camera, and if youre ever bored we could arrange a playdate!

puppy breath,

Toffee said...

What she went to Asta's and didn't take you?? OH. MY. DOG. It looks like she has been super busy hob nobbing with the celebs though and doing her work so I think we need to give her a break! (oh and by break I don't mean fracture!). It does look like you have been pretty busy too recovering from Vegas...
