I wote Mango a lettew about my puzzlement,

Deew Mango,

I got a little confoosed about Sea Quest Hewding..
Fiwst I went and found the cast of Sea Quest..but I felt vewy out of place and didnt weally like them

They awe a vewy stiff and dated bunch in my opinion and not at all welcoming.

Then I went to the Aquawium in Boston like you suggested and
twied to hewd some fish..they wouldn't co-opewate

I twied to be nice and feed them, but honestly, I don't weally like fish that much

It was cold and slimy and stuff and I've decided  that the Sea was the most impawtant pawt of the sea quest hewding
so I went to the souf of Fwance..it's much mowe comfowtable  and welaxing.

I think it will put me in the wight fwame of mind to  do a gweat job of judging

I'm also tewwibly pwoud and pleased to have gotten this bootiful awawd fwom Zoolatwy!!!

thank you so vewy much deew Fwiends!!!  I'm showing it off to evewyone on the wiviewa

I wan home fwom Mango's Estate to twy to wefwesh myself and west up fwom the shocking goings on thewe

 (thewe is vewy little time left to entew--the dead line is the 27th of this momf)

it was cold outside and we wewe waiting fow my hooman sissie and hew pawtnew to come to dinnew

I gweeted them like a good hostess weawing my peawls to  match Mommi

of couwse as official taste testew, I made shoowe the food was edible

I went awound the table asking evewyone if evewything was to theiw liking?

finally, it was time fow dessewt

and I was still at my post and weady to help the hoomans out
I have heawd Mommi say, she is fat, so of couwse, I am thewe to help hew eat less


it's a hawd job, but someone has to do it, hehehehehe

I like to do a vewy thouwough job..it's a mattew of pwide to lick evewything clean

my west distuwbed

I was home sneeping, and cwossing paws fow my Daddi
(we'll find out on thuwsday ow fwiday how he is)

when I weceived an uwgent message fwom Mango's estate, saying that  Khywa went missing and could i come help find hew?

I found hew neew my home in the most fashionable shopping distwict of the meat Mawket

honestly..I  am vewy puzzled, cause all I've known of Khywa and heawd of hew just doesn't fit this kind of behaviow

she was also not dwessed in hew usual ladylike way, and was sluwping a smoofie while she walked and twied to avoid the puppewatzi

I am totally confoozed and don't know what to do..of couwse i got hew in a cab and sent hew back to the estate, but this is vewy wowwying

Pawsylvania,Pencil Vaynia

My Pawents and I wented a caw and dwove to Pencil Vaynia ow as Gussie told me it's sposed to be called mowe cowwectly, Pawsylvania
My unkel Pete lives thewe(Daddi's bwuvvew) and we wanted to visit him and aunt Mimi

I kept a keen eye on the woad to help Daddi dwive
also to give encouwaging kissies along the way

You know how my baby bwuvvew Duffy has gowgeous wed haiw?????

Well, I guess it wuns in the family cause I found an old pictoowe of my Daddi and his two bwuvvews and unkel Pete (the one we wewe going to visit had the same colow haiw exackly

of couwse bof he and Daddi have vewy diffewent haiw now cause it's been like a twillion yeaws since that pictoowe was taken

we awwived and I was awfully glad to be inside..it was fweezing in Pawsylvania, just like in NewYawk

They live out in the countwy and thewe is this cool old house acwoss the stweet fwom them

I went wif Mommi to check it out..but noone was thewe

that evening, I stayed inside the wawm house, while the hoomans went to see the lights at Longwood Gawdens
It's aways all lit up and decowated fow chwissmuss inside and out, and even though , it was fwigid, they went to see the displays

I made a smilebox to show you what they saw....it's hawd to get good pictoowes sometimes so pleez excoose the quality

aftew thawing out, and a good dinnew ,we looked at family pictoowes and while I played soccew, The hoomans gabbed as oosual

the next day we took a walk in the woods befowe heading home..

I looooved the sniffing oppowtoonities

I wasn't allowed to wun off leash..thewe wewe too many little and big aminals awound

but even on leash I had a good time

at one point, Mommi stopped looking like she was in the awctic and took off hew silly hat,but soon discovewed that it hadn't wawmed up at all...we didn't stay out long..not a day to lingew

We dwove home last night and I'm still tiwed, but will twy to come awound and catch up wif all of you

I hope evewyone is well
