victory at last

I'm still at day camp but look at the fun I had this past weekend. As Mango testified, 80-90 degrees here in MA. Whew! You could fry an egg on my lil hot body. Too hot to just walk trails. That's for sure! I headed right for the water!
When it's hot, Hopkinton Park is like a zoo or a dog party. I met Ralph the Weinemier. He loved swimming and chasing sticks. Me too Me too! But I admit. Confession- I'm a bit competitive. Friendship shmendship.. Ralph had a stick. Look at me go. I was swimming like a fish after Ralph. Ralph didn't know what was coming.

I wanted that stick. Gus the happy heeler knows what I mean. I think I formed a fin.. shark fin. I was determined to get Ralph and the stick. Can you tell which head is mine?

Close so close. I'm getting there. How'd he slip ahead of me again!

Ahhhh Victory at last! Gotta reach your dreams and goals!
Oh Yeah Norwood!

...not again!

Mom told me tonight she's going big... heading to Texas.  I can't go of course.  Yadda yadda yadda-it's for work.
When? When? Can i go with her?  She could've at least given me that beer when she told me. You can keep me company by watching my day camp web cam. I'll be there.

Look I'm blue!  She promises to still post my pictures from my weekend fun. We'll see. She better bring me some souvenirs. What should she get me from Dallas? 
a- a cowboy hat
b- a t-shirt "don't mess with texas"
c- sheep discs
d- blogger's choice ______

a pawsome honor

My favorite cat Bruce bestowed this award on me. I'm so honored that he says I'm an addiction! Wow. Admitted daily cravings for me? A goofball and mr. bizerko??
A little about this award - It's presented to those dog bloggers out there who know the meaning of GREATNESS. Their blogs are consistently interesting, funny, or informative. Their KINDNESS is extended to others without expectation of its return, and their FRIENDSHIP inspires others to do EXTRAORDINARY things. These are the blogs you can't wait to read everyday. In short, they are AWE-INSPIRING, full of wonder, and simply PAWsome!

For Bruce, this post is dedicated to you. Hmmm! After my peaceful moments contemplating the meaning of life yesterday, I decided that was boring. You were right Bruce. My best photos are me chasing things. I guess Bruce likes my wild side-Mr. Bizerko. Here I'm dashing thru the trail. Then I thrust myself into leaves. I like the good ole fashion dry off. Don't get to close. I'm known for my kicky feet moves. Deadly and can cause harm for those who get too close.

Ooops sorry! I think I hit you. I warned you. And how can I make a dedication without a toast!

This bud's for you Bruce! The coolest cat around.

Don't worry everybloggie... I only had one lil taste. Are you kidding, Mom give up her beer? Yeah right. Well I would like to forward this award to:

My fellow bostonians- I love seeing what A & A are doing. Even when they are bored and trying to figure out what to do- the chin ups got me chuckling. They are very kind to take every bloggie on a beantown tour this summer. A & A even share visits to the chiro, psychologist, and dietitian. Wow! And Finally- A & A welcomed me to all their dog bloggy friends when I started this past winter. For all these reasons, your blog is PAWSOME A & A!

And I agree with Bruce- The Three Happy Heelers- Gus, Callie and Louie. I visit them every day. Not only because we're heelers but they simply are true friends. They are a breed standard and I wish all dogs could be as happy as them. It's amazing that Callie and Louie were rescues just because they were deaf. You probably hear more things than most dogs.. including me. Way to go for having a Pawsome Blog that I love to visit every day!

a magical morning

Look at the river this morning. The sky's reflections make it look so pretty. It looks like I'm standing in a mountain range. Nope just the bank of the Assabet River.  Nothing fancy.Then I tried to add my reflection.  It didn't work. 
Oh yes! The serenity and tranquility of an early morning walk! Oops I think I see a squirrel! Chase chase! Then a woodchuck!  Oh now I'm thirsty have to take a dip into the water.  Hmm not so peaceful anymore. That's more fun anyways than looking at your reflection.

boston marathon doggies

This past monday was Patriot's Day. In Massachusetts, that means a couple things:
- State Holiday- No work or school for most!
- Boston Red Sox Game
- and the Boston Marathon!

Since mom moved here she loves to watch the marathon.  I wanted to go. I begged and begged. She said something about me tackling the runners.  Me- would I do that? I was left home alone again.  One thing mom did for me was take pictures of all the furry friends at the race.  I wish I could smell them- don't they make scratch and sniff photos yet?
Mom at Wellesley College- 12 mile marker point. 
My favorite runner in the whole event- the Banana Man! 
Fun Aunt Dee eating free popcorn.  She looks really hungry. She didn't bring any back for me. what's up with that-geesch!
Oh.. a westie cheering on the runners.  Mom has a thing for westies.  Her first dog Scruffy was a westie. I heard they can be trouble. 
Hee hee they look alike- don't they?
Very sweet.. the two green and purple circles are lil kids with hats on. He was bending over to give a kiss.  The "awwwh" factor here.  Me- I would be jumping on them. 
So... cute. The little husky puppy got more attention than the race. 
A pampered pooch had a great view of the race. 
Getting some love. These schnoodles conoodling in public with their dad. 
And last but not least the infamous peek a boo pose from this terrier. 
I sure wish I went- it looked like fun. So many friends.. well maybe next year.

norwood's bandana bonanza

Hi everybloggie! Free Smiley Courtesy of

I don't have many cat friends but Bruce the Cat is one cool cat. Bruce noticed I sport an array of bandanas and thought it added to my dog appeal.  So I asked the age old question, do cats wear bandanas? Today Bruce answered my question-see his post cats do wear bandana's too. (yes Bruce- girlie yellow care bear bandanas count). 
It got me thinkin'.  I'd like to do a bandana roll call Free Smiley Courtesy of  

Send your bandana photo to me and I'll post it on a Bandana Bonzana Slide show.  Email the photo to norwoodunleashed@gmail.comYeeehaaa!
