Bring on the Sunshine!

Rupert: "I am so thrilled that my type of weather has finally arrived! Bring on the heat, bring on the sunshine and bring on the summer!
Guess what?! Kellie is gearing up to appear on Ottawa's Breakfast Television this coming Friday morning! She should be on at 7:55 a.m. for all you locals! Be sure to look for Leeroy and some Doodle Dog originals on air! Kellie is also announcing her book "The First Bark" on the show and it will be available for sale starting Friday!
Leeroy isn't reporting with me today, he says he is saving up his energy for Friday and he is getting lots of beauty sleep.

This week's featured painting is a memorial to best buddies "Razor and Cocoa". They did everything together and were neighbours! The sky background adds to the playfulness and Cocoa is ready to play ball. Great memories of friends to the end.
Make sure to check out Kellie's website, she will be updating the gallery with some more Doodle Dogs this week!"

It's my Birfday!

Leeroy: "Today is my birfday! I am one! Nobody believes I am one, they all think I am still a puppy. I will be getting a special birfday dinner and cake and presents too!"
Rupert: "He'll be sharing the food with me, though. Kellie said so."
Leeroy: "Yah, yah....oh, Kellie was at the Ottawa Humane Society's Furball last weekend. She said it was really great and a really nice couple won her donation. Kellie was all dressed up and had these weird shoes on with sticks at the heels...she said I wasn't allowed to chew on the sticks. I don't know what else they would be there for...?"
Rupert: "We waited up for her to get home, it was really late but we still danced when she got in!"
Leeroy: "Oh, yeah...that was fun! The Furball night raised over $110,000 this year! What a great cause!"
Rupert: "That would buy alot of food!"
Leeroy: "Rupert, simmer with the food.....This week's painting feature is called "Playful Peter". It is a memorial to a dear greyhound in the US. His owners lost him suddenly and miss him so much. You can tell what a loving soul he is, what a nice way to remember him."

Rupert: "Peter's fur colours are really neat. Kellie says he was a brindle. I love his happy eyes!"
Leeroy: "Me too. Let's go tell Kellie that we did our post. I think it's time for us to go for a big walk, it's finally sunny out and warm enough. We can think about Peter on our walk."
Rupert: "Good idea, bro....and by the way, happy birthday....I'm glad you're here."
Leeroy: "RUPERT!? Are you getting emotional with me? You LOVE me?! Is that a tear in your eye?!!!"
