Help. I’m being attacked by all the fall leaves. Next up will be our long 19 days of winter. Brrrrr..

Happy Woofday!

And many more to come! Will be at work tomorrow and wanted to make sure I got my post in. This is getting to be a fancy-schmancy site, Sherpa. My ‘rents are hoping that I can learn also learn html lingo at the groomer’s. Love, Finn the dog.

Izzy, rescued from a shelter by the Lange Foundation

Monday, November 9th, 2009


Hello. My name is Izzy, and I’m a little distracted. I just went into the downstairs office, and I found a pillow with a dog that looks like me, but isn’t as pretty.

It’s a strange dog.  It’s as flat as a pillow. I like to lie on pillows, but I make them flat.  I’ve never seen a pillow make a dog flat. This doesn’t feel right to me.

I wonder what would happen if I lie on the pillow.  Will I also get flat? I’m scaring myself.

I live a very nice life.  I have a roommate named Sarge.  He came from a Marine base.  I came from the Lange Foundation.  They rescued me from a shelter in South Los Angeles, and I ended up in the Hollywood Hills.  Frankly, I could have lived without the little brother, but I guess he’s ok.  At least he’s not flat, although he is strangely shaped.

I have been fortunate enough to meet Myrna and Freddie Gershon, and I have shed on both of them. The dog on the pillow doesn’t shed. I think I have a lot of Goggling and Wikipedia-ing to do to solve this mystery.

In the meantime, thanks, Sherpa, for inviting me to the site.  You’re so cool, man.

I biked 40 “mountain” miles and never tired!

avatarHi, Sherpaboy (and Gang of Sherpaboy)

Jack here. Just reporting on my extraordinary feat: Bicycling 40 miles through the mountains of Southern California without even breaking a sweat. (Although my pure white, manly mane got kinda windblown.)

I live out here with Sharon. That’s her boyfriend, Ron, riding his bicycle so closely in front of mine that you can’t see mine. That’s how I was able to bike the 40 miles so easily — it’s called “drafting.”


“Backpack” Jack

I’m NOT vain! Just curious! (Really!)

avatarHello Sherpa!  And hello friends of Sherpa!

Virginia is still treating me well.  Fall down here is crisp and invigorating.  I enjoy going outside and experiencing the fall foliage firsthand, creeping through the leaves in Grandma Joanie’s backyard. Occasionally, I will find a mouse or mole to taunt in the garage. That’s fun.
Here are two pictures of me.  It seems that every time I come in contact with a mirror, I can’t help but look at my reflection.  That doesn’t exactly make me vain – just curious.  Who is the kitty in the mirror? It’s ME!
Hobbies still include watching my morning talk shows (I’ve added “The View” to my lineup) and taunting my black lab dog cousin Blackjack. Recently, however, I branched out, and have enjoyed watching live orchestra performances on PBS via my granddaddy’s flat screen TV.  Both the music and the conductor intrigue me.  My composer of choice is Beethoven.  Happy Holidays everyone!
Love, Honey

Greetings, dear Sherpa

avatarLove, love, love the site — thank you Uncle Will. You have inspired me and now I have my own email, It was somewhat bothersome to discover that “Finn the Dog” was already taken. Have you met him? Never mind — I like that I can now manage my own correspondence. Lots of aunts and uncles are coming to town this week. When they arrive, the Cat-brothers are put in lockdown until meals are done. Hurrah. Best to your Mom and Dad!
