What Have I Been Up To?

Hello, everyone. I have been a little quiet lately. I was busy taking care of my People while they were under the weather. Fortunately, my stomach has been perfectly healthy, enabling me to eat as many treats as possible. I have even been indulging in the occasional green bean lately—quite a refreshing snack in warm weather!

In addition to dealing with Her unfortunate bout of illness, my secretary recently enrolled in a full-time course for the summer and has been very engaged with the assigned pre-work. So I am sorry to say that She has been neglecting her blog duties and has not been very attentive to my correspondence either.

If She were not the one who controlled my food supply, I would probably dismiss Her, but as it is, we will have to reach some kind of compromise. What this means is that I will be posting a little less frequently, and I may not be able to comment as often or at length, but as always, I will continue to visit my fellow bloggers and delight in reading their posts.

In other news, my recommendation of Peggy Gavan’s diverting local animal blog, The Hatching Cat, was picked up by the New York media blog FishbowlNY in a post entitled “Albert the Dog Picks Up Newsweek Scent.” FishbowlNY, according to its own description, “covers the pulse of New York media. For more than 10 years, our reporters and editors have covered the shifting landscape in the media capital of the world.” I guess this means that Ms. Peggy and I are considered part of the New York media landscape! I assume that I will now be invited to all sorts of fancy media cocktail parties where I can eat a lot of chicken satay and other hors d’oeuvres while rubbing shoulders with Charlie Rose and Anna Wintour.

I’ll be back on Monday with a slightly belated 5 Favorite New Yorkers for June. Until then, enjoy your weekend, everyone!

  1. I’m sorry your People have been under the weather, Albert. Glad to hear they’re feeling better. You are wise to cut the Lady a little slack. And congratulations on being part of the New York media landscape! Quite an honour for a canine of modest stature like yourself!!

    Please tell the Lady I wish her well with her studies! Have a lovely weekend! So nice to hear from you, Albert!

  2. I always recognized you as a mover and shaker (and I’m talking about something other than coming in out of the rain!). Happy to read your people have recovered from their respective maladies. I am confident The Lady will somehow time find time to keep up with your correspondence (you being so important and all). I always enjoy your blog posts. The next one will be well worth waiting for. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I’m sorry to hear that your People have been under the weather. Don’t be too hard on your secretary – I have taken courses on the side and they do take up a lot of time! Don’t worry, we’ll be around when you are able to get the word out.

  4. Hello Albert, I’m so sorry to hear your People have been under the weather, and I’m glad they are on the mend. Congratulations on your media coup! If you get to meet Charlie Rose, I want to hear all about it!

    • I do not like to wear clothes (except for my coat when it’s cold in the winter), but I imagine I would get a new harness for the occasion. Do let me know when the invitations start flooding in.
