Scouting at Fenway

Dogs always love parks…but I am particularly attracted to The Park.  I took a trip in to Boston this week to check on the turf*, and met my friends from the Girl Scouts, Canine Companions and Clear Channel, to have some photos taken for a billboard.  Spoiler alert in case you would like to be surprised during one of your upcoming commutes this month. Here is a hint at least:  we have all cooked up a special surprise with the help of Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts, Canine Companions for Independence, Eukanuba (big giveaway) and the mighty Red Sox….it will be a real treat and will raise money, awareness & make tails wag.  Great way to celebrate the 100th birthdays of Fenway Park and the Girl Scouts. By the way,   I was reading Juliette Gordon Low’s biography (Founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA)- I think you should too- she was a remarkable person.  In case you don’t have time to read it now, I will point out that the Girl Scouts were ahead of the game a century ago as they welcomed girls with disabilities at a time when they were excluded from many activities.  Mrs. Low did not let deafness, or serious health problems stand in the way of her life or service to others.  When I grow up, I will be able to do important work like my friend Frontier in the photo….extra bonus that he gets to assist a Girl Scout who is in turn helping others!

thanks for reading,

Fenway:

That is a great photo of you and your special friends! Keep up the good work and Happy Spring Training!

Fenway, I always appreciate your positive, thoughtful reflections. I especially appreciate this recent one, which highlights the good work of the Girl Scouts. My daughter is a girl scout, and many of the girls I teach are also proud scouts. I think you would love meeting them. You should come to Rhode Island, home of many Red Sox fans, and visit them. In the interim, thank you for the scouting report on Fenway. I hope to see the Grand Lady this year during its regal 100th birthday party. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Fenway. I hope the Olde Towne Teame, probably wearing their green jerseys today, enjoyed their split-squad victory in Fenway South over the Baltimore Birds.

I would love to come to beautiful Rhode Island- America’s best-kept secret. I can’t believe it has 400 miles of coastline. It is so small that it doesn’t ever usually have its own puzzle piece on my puzzle of the United States- (it would for sure get lost, and wouldn’t even be a choking hazard)
