Spokesdog for Virginia State Parks

My furrend Yoda the Dog do be at the BlogPaws Pet Blogging and Social Media Conference in Furginia rite now.  I has met his mom and she werks fur Furginia State Parks.  So wot did his mom do? She made me spokesdog fur Furginia State Parks on swag wot she be gibbing out at BlogPaws.  This be the envelope - check it out!
That be ME!  See me up there? I gibs the park cabins at Furginia State Parks a big paws up!

And this be the bling wot be inside the envelope:

Wowser!  That Yoda and his mom did send each of us one! One be fur my mom and seeing as she duss not wear a collah, she be putting hers on her zipper pull on her backpack.
Keep you paws off! This one be MINE!

Thank you Yoda and Yoda's mom fur the bling and I is honored to be the spokesdog fur Furginia State Parks where there be Fambly, Furrends and Fun fur sure!

So, on a different note, as you all know that Hurry-Cane Irene do be barreling down on us. Mom has stocked up on our noms and has been filling effury container with water and sticking it in the freezer to keep noms frozened longer and so all of us dogs and kittehs has drinking water.
I be where the arrow be pointing.
The red star be my house.  The pink be storm surge flooding fur Cat 3-4 hurry-canes so we should be safe from that.
So our biggest worry do be that Hurry-Cane Irene steals our powah and not gibs it back fur a a while. If'n that happens our basement will fill up with waters when the sump pump duss not werk.  Mom mite has to figger out a way to trap the feral kittehs and bring them upstairs. Mom woz kwite horrified at the nom store last night when peeples woz hoarding milk, eggs, meat, ICE CREAM... Wot is they thinking?  Those noms will all go bad when the powah is stolened.  So anyways, if'n I is not around fur a while it do be coz Hurry-Cane Irene stealed our powahs and innerwebs.  Me, I be battening down the hatches and hunkering down in my hidey spot.  And all of my furrends wot be in the way of Hurry-Cane Irene, you all be safe, k?


  1. Wowza concats on your medal Shawnee! You iz famuss! I hopes that hurrycane duzn't come steel your powers away, be safe *pawhug*

  2. Oh dear, stay safe Shawnee. Your mom is such a good planner and is very safety minded. I know she's doing all the right things to stay safe during this hurricane. We follow Yoda's bloggy too - they do a great blog. You should be spokesperson for all the Virginia State Parks - you like them often enough. I'm so envious (as you know).

  3. I sure do hope you stay safe! The talkie box said that our powers might be stolen too and that we were going to have 6-8 inches of rain! And high winds and stuff. I just hope there's no thunder. Miss. Irene is going to be on a big power trip if she keeps stealing everybody's power!

  4. Oh I am so worried about my blog friends in the path of Irene. I am so glad you human is so smart and is making all those preparations.

    I be prayin for all of you.

    And I am not a bit surprised that you were asked to be spokesdog for Virginia State Parks, I bet there isn't a dog in the state that knows them as good as you do.

    It is the perfect choice......

  18. First, a big congrats on being the spokesdog for Virginia state parks! They couldn't have picked a better representative! You got some cool bling. I love the pics of you and your sisters. In the first shot, you look like you're laughing at a joke. Maybe Sydney is telling it.

    I hope you all will be safe this weekend! It's so weird to think we lived right there too. We'll be praying that all will be safe!

  19. You are a great pal Shawnee but I am just a little jealous that mom picked you to be the Furginia State Parks Spokesdog. You sound all ready for the bad Irene coming your way. Stay safe!

  20. Shawnee the Spokesdog! How awesome is that?! Those are super cool tags and Sydney looks especially excited about her blingy!
    Irene bypassed our coast and we're keeping our paws crossed for the rest of the country! Stay safe and keep us posted when you can!

    Please be safe!
    *nosekisses* to Sydney & Dixie

  22. Mumma & I fink that be a fery good choice making you the Spokedawg for the Vurginia Parks. Eferypup what knows how many hikes you go on in them Parks would agree. Mumma says that be fery nice bling & it looks real pretty like her geocaching coins.
    Wooo sure hafe some hu-mans wif not much brains in your neighbourhood if they be buying icecreams & such like stuff just afore they is going to hafe their powers stolen by a mean old hairycane. But maybe some lucky pups got to nom all the icecream up right away afore that hairycane gobbled up the powers.

    I is sure glad you hafe a sensible Mumma.
