subway awt toow and and impawtant commentathon

Since I'm still in NewYawk, I thought I would show you something intewesting about my subway station in the West Village..this is the station I aways take when I go somewhewe in the city that is not walking distance

btw,did you notice the postew fow TinTin the movie behind me????notice the wesemblance ??????

these little bwonze statoos by this awtist mistew called Tom Ottewness awe in my 
local station

they make Mommi and me giggle while we wait fow the twain

you have to watch out fow those alli-gatows coming up fwom the sewews, hehee

no wondew stuff is falling apawt in many places when you have little monstews like this coming out to destwoy things

this guy sitting next to me must think I want his bag of coins , given how he's holding on to it..sheeesh, it's not like I can smell tweats in thewe

thewe seems to be a theme hewe..i thinks it's gweed

and no mewcy fow those who don't have the coins..you have to pay, no sneeking in

Now enuff silliness, I have an impawtant announcement about my fwiend Pepsi

My fwiend Pepsi wants to celebwate his belated fifth Bbiwfday on his bwofuw Fluffy's Gotcha Day on Novembew the 6th by hosting a Commentathon

hewe is what he says:
I'd make the hoomans pay... and help other furpals in need! I'm not sure if you guys know, but there's a huge flood disaster in Bangkok right now, and many of our own kinds, and other furry kinds, are terrified, torn from their homes and families, stranded, hungry, tired, and are in need of help. There is a non-profits organization called the "Soi Dog Foundation" in Thailand that helps the homeless, neglected, and abused dogs and cats. Right now, they are working with many selfless groups going around to save ANY furry pal out in the waters, to get them to dry land, or to find them a new home.

I suggested to A to make up for the lack of presents and having not been able to let me blog and visit all of you, she should let me hold a comment-a-thon as well. Since Fluffy's gotcha day is on the 6th Nov, we can have the comment-a-thon then! For every comment we receive on the big day, she'll donate $0.50 to the cause!! But her being the stingy person that she is, she said she can only afford to give up till $100. Do help make me empty her wallets okay? Spread the word!

This sounds like a wondewful way to celebwate Pepsi and help all those poow fuwwkids in Thailand, so 
PLEEEEEEZ go and visit him on the sixth and leave a comment!!!!

happy weekend  and
smoochie kisses

Momma loves the NY subway system and both pawrents miss Chicago's subway/elevated system. We all enjoy public art installations around our city, but ABQ does not allow pups on the buses (can you believe it?)

We will be sure to leave a comment on Pepsi's blog for his Barkday! The pups in his country need our help!

Friday is the Blog Blast for Peace day around the world...will you join us?
