Momma Went to NYC - A Note From Beckett

Hi!  Beckett here.  Momma went to NYC last weekend and because I'm feeling attention deprived, she says I can tell you about it for her.

Momma's friend is getting married today, so she and her friends (aka other puppy & little human mommies) left last Friday for a bachelorette weekend.  I freaked out when she packed.  What?!  She should know she isn't allowed to leave me!!  So momma left Friday morning and had to stop to take her inhaler before she even got to cousin Kirstren's house.  Bad asthma!

The girls stopped for breakfast and a little shopping - where some of them bought matching shoes (Note from Cole: Seriously.  Buy one, get two free from the Bass Outlet!!  How cool is that?!?!), and arrived in Manhattan in the early afternoon.  Night one was dinner at a jazz club.  They had the small restaurant side of the club all to themselves and got absolutely spoiled by the bartender and two waiters.  These lovely men bought the table of nine ladies two rounds of shots and gifted the bride with some foil art.  In the shape of...um, male genetalia.  The guys get an "A" for their craft skills! (Cole: It's amazing what you can do with an apple, tin foil, hard boiled eggs and a paper towel roll *snicker*)  The rest of the girls went out to a few bars after that, but momma had to go back to the hotel and take care of her asthma.

Saturday morning the girls all wandered down to have breakfast in the diner next to the hotel.  (Cole: BTW, fantastic location!  Across the street from the Hell's Kitchen PD, two blocks from the Hudson River, and over all a great neighborhood.)  At that point, I made Grammy text momma that I was pouting and on a hunger strike...  In the afternoon, the girls got on a Circle Line boat and made the trip around the Statue of Liberty.  Such glorious weather.  Too bad momma came home burnt!

Saturday night the girls got all dressed up and brought the bride out for a "surprise".  Momma says that they went to Lucky Cheng's, and that I'm too little a boy for her to tell me what they do there.  But she linked it up for you, just in case you've never heard of them before.  I hear the bride was quite surprised!  Again, the other girls when out to other bars afterwards, but momma's asthma is persistant and she had to cab it back to the hotel.  Like a good momma, she waited up for all the girls to come home - and read a good book while she waited.

Sunday morning most of the girls had to sleep off their good time.  That gave momma, Kirstren and Heather a chance to get up and moving early.  They had breakfast and went to the Met to see the new Picasso exhibit.  (Cole: It sounds cheesy, but the Met was the highlight of the trip for me.  Very low-key; time with other people who really enjoy art; and it felt like "bonus" time that we weren't going to have.)  Then I made Grammy call and order momma to come home.  OK, fine.  I didn't yell at her.  But it was time for the girls to come home!  Despite having a huge-ass SUV (momma's words!), the 5 girls and their luggage barely crammed themselves in for the ride home. 

And to think, Meadow, Carmella and I didn't even get presents from momma when she got home.  What NERVE!

Barks & Kisses,


  1. Hi Beckett!
    I am sooo sorry you got left behind while your mom went out and had all kinds of fun in NYC! I don't know if you would've kept up with all of the sightseeing and partying though so it was probably best to stay home and relax instead.
    I see that you are a neighbor of mine, isn't that exciting? I live in Manchester, NH, and so I wonder how long it would take to walk to your house? Hmmmm!

  2. P.S. My coonhound, Daisy, forgot to grab your button so I'm back to take it away from you! Hope you'll take Daisy's button with you sometime!

  3. that is such a fun time.. I wish I was there.. Poor babies no treat for them.. I was the Red toes.. But I did pick out that color..

  4. Poor baby, not even a doggy bag from the reception? Next time, you may want to try peeing on mama's shoes and then maybe she'll think about bringing you home something.

  5. Thanks for keeping us updated, Beckett! I can't believe you didn't even get a treat from New York. I hope Mama brings you something extra tasty from her next trip!

  6. Poor Beckett! You are seriously neglected. ;) I will have a word with your Mom for you, okay? The munchkins don't like it when I have to leave either. They always try to jump into the suitcase to let me know I'm not supposed to leave them. Maybe give that a try and see if that gets the message across?


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
