My Little Chic-a-dee

Well - actually it's an American Goldfinch. And it's my BIRTHDAY PRESENT!
The Audubon Birds are my favorite stuffies. They sell them at The Dairy in Central Park - and this one (Goldie - after our favorite Chicago Anchorman, Jeff Goldblatt) joins Hawkeye, my Christmas present. (Hawkeye is a Red Tailed Hawk)

What I love about these birds is that instead of a silly "squeek" they actually have an authentic bird call, provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. How cool is that!

I really don't think you need to document me bonding with Goldie - oh well.

Mom was very busy baking treats for my birthday last night. At least I THOUGHT they were for my birthday. Turns out she took most of them to The MARTE this morning.

This is a brand new artisan fair in the East Village of Manhattan at PS 63. Although the crowds were a little thin today - I bet they pick up once word spreads about these shows. It was a great group of artists and the show producers were the best!
We'll be back at The MARTE on Saturday, July 10th.

We handed out dog biscuits as a promotion at our last fair. They were such a hit people asked to buy them. This time around we offered a "Snack Bag" for $2. Just a little sample to take home. They were a big hit!

For the Lincoln Center show we're going to have $7 Treat Bags as well as the smaller Snack Bags. Mom loves to bake. I get to taste test. AND it brings folks to our booth and helps with the branding of Central Bark Designs. WIN WIN all the way around.

Speaking of winning.....GO LAKERS!
(Seems Mom's a Laker Girl from way back. She has a ticket stub from her first game with her Dad....the ticket price was $4.25! Man she must be really old!)

Hi Abbey

Like your Goldie. We have a Chickadee from the same line that we really like.

Hope you had a great birthday.

Tucker and Daisy.

P.S. Our Mommy says go Celtics.

Oh, I hope we can get into the city for one of these shows. With the way the humans are going lame around here I'll keep my paws crossed but won't be holding my breath. Still, it would be lots of fun and I know for a fact that they would love to go. Whether we get there or not, good luck with the endeaver and most of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

wags, Lola
