October is a time for new beginnings

taking a break from writer's block

Well, it certainly has been a month full of excitement. I am really glad that I visited Fenway Park before the fall… and before THE FALL.  Even though it was my first time to the ballpark last month, I  felt sunny and optimistic about the season- but that’s just me- sunny and optimistic.  Perhaps I was feeling the excitement about becoming the official service dog of the Red Sox- yeah, that was it.  Certainly I will not get traded,  take another job, or drink any beer. I can’t make any promises about eating chicken.  I still don’t get what’s so bad about chicken when I have heard about chewing tobacco and bubble gum (both so bad for your teeth). Bones, that’s what I recommend- nothing takes the edge off of a rough day like kicking back and chewing on a bone.  That will brighten your smile, and doesn’t leave a mess behind.

Anyway, I am far away from all of that baseball drama trying to focus on my training.  I am living with my Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) puppy raisers; they are awesome.  I start here, learning basic skills, and then will be able to (hope) move on to the next level and enter training to become a service dog.  That is a great deal of pressure; but, being a puppy, I don’t feel it at all.  Also, I will soon be able to make some visits back into the city.  I  hope to make my first official venture a trip to the Red Sox Foundation’s Home Base Program around Veterans’ Day.  I love that it is on 11.11.11 this year!

Better go.  I think my writer’s block might be lifting- so, stay tuned for more frequent posts.

Love, Fenway the Dog


Hey Fenway. Nice to meet you! Sounds like you’ve got your paws full wanting to be a service dog. Keep us up to date on your adventures, and for goodness’ sake, don’t make a mess on the infield!

Let me know when you want to break out from CCI — and I will show you the ropes. I already know how to sit, stay, and come. My owners can hide things from me and i can find them. I chase sticks and fetch dead birds and bring them back to my master. Ii went out on the boat for the first time today and didn’t even try to jump off while the boat was going (pretty smart, huh?)!!!!!

Your pal,

Hi Fenway!

I have been looking for you. I am raising your half-sister Kaz II — you both have the same dad, Paxton III. I wanted to let your raisers know that there is a Paxton pups yahoo group for raisers of pups sired by Paxton to share stories and photos. I will post a link to your blog on the group so your siblings know where you are. Here is a link to the yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Paxton_pups/


Hi Fenway,
I’m your brother Finnegan. They call me “boneless” because when they pick me up, I just go boneless upside down in their arms. I feel very safe with them and I am very loved.


Hi Fenway! We’re CCI volunteer puppy raisers in Ohio and looking forward to hearing about your adventures. I’ve added your website link to our blogroll on our dog blog.
