Fred Loves the Mets

Fred has entered the "Met Your Pet" contest.
If he wins, his mommies will get tickets to a Mets game and you'll see a giant picture of our favorite hound mix on DiamondVision.
Freddy just loved dressing up in his Met hat and Lizo's glasses for these pictures, can't you tell?

Yea, Fred!

Audra & Zoe at Sesame Place on 8/16

This one's for Mama Carol
Love, Fred
PS: Can we go to Sesame Place, too?

Fred's Burning Question About Pluto Answered

Courtesy of Jesse McKinley and The New York Times:


Sure enough, some people also asked the existential questions that the cosmos typically inspires. Why did this happen? What does it mean? And, of course, how does this affect Mickey Mouse’s dog?

Soon after the announcement from the astronomical union, Disney executives were peppered with questions about whether Pluto’s planetary status would affect Mickey’s sidekick. The answer was no.

“He’s taking the news in stride,” said Lisa Haines, a spokeswoman for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
Even at Disney, though, it seemed that people were distancing the cosmic outcast.

“Pluto was not necessarily named after Pluto the planet,” Ms. Haines said. “We’ve got absolutely nothing on record that even draws a connection between the two. And we’re certainly not changing Pluto’s name.”


Fred hopes he won't get sued by the Disney Megalith for posting that cute pic of Pluto.

Great Woof Lodge

Breaking news...this is where we are going on Thanksgiving Weekend to celebrate 13 years of the Miracle of Caleigh:

Great Woof Lodge

What, Mommy? It's Great WOLF Lodge? Puppies aren't allowed? That's not fair!

Fred likes water parks, especially indoor water parks that he can enjoy even when it is chilly outside.

It Gives Fred Pawse

My Dear Anonymous,

I heard through the Wrigley's gumline that you are home with a sore foot. Fred does not have feet, but I do have paws, and I know what it's like when I get something stuck in them. Ouch!

I hope that you are already feeling better, darling Anonymous. Rest up, watch some Ellen, and know that I am thinking of you.

Ever yours,


PS: You could never scare me, I promise.

Fred's Pet Peeves

My Lovely Anonymous,

Yes, even pets can have pet peeves! Here are some of mine:

The vacuum cleaner
People who leave gum wrappers all over the place
Empty water bowls
Deli meats
People who chew on ice in a loud and annoying manner when other people and pets are trying to sleep
Itchy ears
Short people who try to take pictures of Fred when Fred is sleeping
People who don't leave room for Fred on the couch or on the bed

These are just a few of the things that make Fred fume. And yes, that is a photo of my handsome self in the top right corner.

Love always,

Your Freddy

A Dog Park Kinda Weekend

Dearest Anonymous,

It seems we have established a type of correspondence, as it were. How lovely. Fred likes making friends.

It's funny you should mention the dog park, because Mama Carol has been seriously remiss in this regard. I can't even remember the last time Fanny and I played in the dog park. It's the most wonderful feeling, Anonymous - no leashes, ears blowing in the doesn't get any better.

There is a group of dogs who get together in the park by our house each night, and they are all allowed off-leash, but noooo, not us. Mama Carol can be pretty strict (who knew). We only get to be off leash in the basketball court or (allegedly) in the dog park, THOUGH WE HAVEN'T BEEN THERE IN FOREVER, MAMA.

Okay, Fred will calm down. [Breathe deeply]

Anyway, I think Fanny and I are going to the groomer on Saturday. I love the groomer. I always enjoy getting a puppy pedicure and a little massage. Ahhh. And on Sunday, the baby comes home from camp.

Have a great weekend, Anonymous!

Love and Kisses,

F. Carter Duboff

Fred has fans!

Dear Anonymous,

Thank you sooooo much for writing a comment. I really appreciate that. Sometimes I'm not sure that anyone is out there reading my blog.

If you want more good readin', try Mama Lizo's Blog:

The Disorganized Librarian

I tried to drive the Puppy Bus up to Westchester yesterday to rescue my mom, but I got lost and turned back home. I thought I was supposed to drive to Rye Bread, NY, but Mommy said it was just Rye. Oh well. I was bummed because I thought there would be some rye bread for Fred upon my arrival. Apparently there is only rye.

Love and Bully Stix,

All aboard the Puppy Bus!

I'm driving as fast as I can, mom!

Mommy is out Golfing

Mama Carol left this morning for a golf trip. It's part of her job, she says. She is also going to discuss a book called From Good to Great. Well, all they really need to do is ask Fred about being great, no?

I wish I could go golfing, too. I would catch the balls, but I don't think I would bring them back.

Mama Lizo, Fanny, and I are going to have a great time tonight while Mommy is away on her trip. We're not going to watch ANY movies about English people. We're going to have a dog movie fiesta - Lassie Come Home, Benji, Old Yeller, etc. We might watch the Mets, too - Fred likes baseball.

Okay, so I don't write much

I've been getting some flak lately due to the lack of posts. I would like to remind you that FRED DOES NOT HAVE THUMBS. Okay? I'm just doing my best over here.

I have to go to my photo session now.
