Just a few other pictures from truck day yesterday. I am still trying to figure out why they were loading a “PEA” sign. Hope someone from the Red Sox writes to solve that mystery for me- I can’t sleep. The other pictures are of my friends Nagal & Vernell and the trailer they road on with Red Sox Ambassadors and Wally. I forgot to list Nagal & Vernell yesterday in the clubhouse shot- even Richard Weir mentioned them in his article in the Herald today (he is a dog guy so I like him right away). The trailer lead the truck out of town while flooding the streets with foam baseballs & ballgame music favorites like: Tessie, Sweet Caroline & Muddy Water. The people in cars and on sidewalks didn’t know quite what to make of this rogue procession, but it produced great smiles and waves as people rolled down their windows and pulled out their phones to take pictures. I don’t have a shot of the student they passed who mooned from inside a cafe- I guess I we have to keep things at least PG and mostly PC…but that was a special moment.
thanks for trailing me:

Why 97? A couple of days ago, I had some special guests come to Fenway Park for a visit. There are some great pictures from the day which I will share with you this week…there were many uniforms and lots of green (themes of service & troops brought us all together). Perhaps the girls who got an inside look behind the scoreboard will write to solve the mystery of why Wally is holding a 97 (yes, of course I know). Maybe if I can get 100 of them to follow me, that will motivate me to get the pictures out there faster. Soon, the blog will be officially announced…and I will invite you all over to Fenway for an event. I wonder if the Red Sox would let me invite dogs. I will bring the cookies.

By the way, if anyone is interested in what my takeaways are from the Mrs. Brady incident here they are: I will make all my post-game comments in the car with the windows up. Dogs and reporters have sharp hearing, with peculiar filters. I am glad that I am expected to fetch and not throw. People expect celebrities to be so polite. It would be so hard to not bark or bite when you are being chased and yelled at after a bad day when all you want to do is go hide in your dog house.
Here is the first of some of the pictures I have from my visit into the city in December. I am going to start with this one from the visit to The New England Center for Homeless Veterans in Boston . You all may recognize me being held by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia (“Salty”)*. In the first shot, I was holding him, but that threw off the symmetry: so, we switched. Next to us is: outfielder Darnell McDonald, pitcher Michael Bowden, catcher and designated hitter Ryan Lavarnway, and of course Wally. Kevin, thanks for writing to remind me to send these. Soon to follow are the pics with some of the vets. This residential program extends a helping hand to homeless men and women veterans who are addressing the challenges of addiction, severe and persistent mental illness and/or unemployment. As the winter gets colder, the need for these shelters and their services is critical. Thank you to the men and women of our armed services for serving our country and helping to make us safe. It is an honor that some of our Canine Companions Service dogs are serving you.

* Salty wanted to take me home…we were going to form a great catching and fetching duo under the name Salty Dog.
