New Year Disresolution
Wow, the holidays really left me dog tired….but I am rested and refreshed and ready for 2012. It is a great deal for a growing dog to take in…but i am ready for the challenge. (i am so new to this blog stuff that i am going to be more like an ee cummings of capitalization…the paws have trouble with the shift key.)
First of all, i want to say that i think that New Year’s resolutions are lame. But, i think that i need to make some New Year’s Promises at least, because the Red Sox have bestowed me with the honor of being the official service dog. Here’s a start: I will vow to step up to the plate (and use more baseball metaphors but not acknowledge them) and make sure that I help to spread the word of the magic of collaboration between a sports team and a young service dog. Of course I am charged with illustrating the symbolism of a dog’s convening power, door opening, and overall diplomacy through personal contact and social media…. wait, what? Maybe it is better for me to just write about my experiences and let you all sort it out organically.
Second, i will be reporting more frequently because i will be linked to Red Sox websites. I will try to use shorter, easier to follow sentences…dogs often get distracted. if you want to read people prose you can try another site.
Here is what you can look forward to, or avoid reading about over the next week as i give you a retrospective of my December activities in Boston. These include: reading the Grinch Who Stole Christmas to some great kids for ReadBoston event with Mayor Menino (i sat, he read); a trip on a bus with some Red Sox players where we visited Boston Medical Center, Mass General Children’s Hospital, and had lunch with veterans. More to come.
thanks for reading,
Fenway the Dog
