Hey y'all. Food Guy and I have been on the road for what seems like a month straight. I got to stay with Jen, Zozo, and Sug while Food Guy went up to Baltimore to hang with his sister and old school friends. That was a blast. I was so tired by the time the Food Guy picked me up  that I slept for like two whole days. It was pretty sweet. Then, we loaded back up into rolling dog house and headed to Charlotte for Christmas. We had a great time at the lake. Food Guy's niece, Haley, was there and she played chase with me lots. Plus, Food Guy's dad kept slipping me extra dog bones when no one was looking. I told him the Food Guy never feeds me. I think he believes me, so don't tell him any different. 

Wanna know the best thing about it being New Year's Eve? Well, I'll tell ya. No more stupid pants. Now that the year is over, Food Guy doesn't have to wear those stupid Red Leg- Black Leg pants anymore. I really hope he learned his lesson and doesn't make any more bets with Jen. I was pretty happy when I saw him put those pants in the back of the closet. We'll have to keep them around though. You never know when you might need some silly pants for a costume or something. 

Anyway, Food Guy are I are about to load up and head to the ATL for some New Year's Eve festivities. One last hurrah before Food Guy has to get back to work. School is starting back up next week. Boo Hiss! That means Food Guy will be back to spending all of his time reading those silly books and writing papers. 

Hopefully the Dawgs will take care of business and beat the Spartans tomorrow. I'm not sure how much of the game I'll get to see. Food Guy are I are going hiking, and since we're playing in a pretty lame bowl that's during the day we might miss some of it. We'll be sure to catch all the highlights on the Ocho. I can't wait for next football season. It's always sad when football is over. But, that's OK. March Madness is coming and we've got the Heels to occupy us until Baseball season starts. 

Happy New Year, 
The Yellow One

I don't think the Food Guy's ever met a stranger

The Food Guy finally got back from his conference in Florida. I don't know why, but I couldn't go with him. For some reason they don't let dogs go to resorts in Sanibel Island Florida. I'm not complaining though. I had a pretty good week chillin' with my peeps in the ATL. Jen, Zozo, and Sug and I had a big time this week. I was pretty happy to see my food guy when he got back tonight. He had some crazy stories from his trip. I'll tell ya what: Food Guy lives a pretty charmed life and I'd say the kindness of strangers is pretty good thing except I just don't think the Food Guy would call anyone a stranger. 

See, after he dropped me off to stay with my ATL peeps this week, he caught a flight to Ft. Myers Florida for a conference called ARF. You'd think they let dogs go to conference called ARF, but they don't. Anyway, he went down there with no clue how he was going to get to Sanibel Island from the airport. He said he'd, "just sort it out when he got there." That's my Food Guy. He won't go into the woods without a plan and lots of food and stuff, but make him travel around in the city and he just flies by the seat of his pants. Good think he doesn't mind just chatting people up. When he got off the plane, he just started talking to some people. They happened to be from Berry College in good 'ol Rome Ga. Guess what? They were Georgia grads and they were going to the conference, so they were kind enough to let him poach a ride. They even gave him a ride back to the airport today!  Then, check this out. He didn't really know where he was staying. He just figured he'd go the conference and figure it out. One of his friends from school, Amy, had talked to some of her friends who said he could stay with them. Food Guy didn't really know where they were staying but he figured getting to Sanibel was the most important thing to figure out since he had to give a presentation at the conference the next day. Anyway, it turns out that Amy's friends were staying at the conference hotel and after a few hours of hanging around, Food Guy got in touch with them and stayed in a sweet pad on the beach. Check it out:

Not too bad for a food guy who left Georgia in a rain storm without much of an idea of where he was going.  He ended up spending the last couple of days hanging out with some really cool people. He told me he went running on the beach. I think he should give me some extra dog bones for going running without me!

I'm pretty tired from playing with Zozo and Sug all week. Our friend Jen is a top-notch food lady. She even let me go on all the dog walks with Zozo and Sug. That's pretty cool since it meant that she had to walk three doggies at one. That's some serious leash management! 

Well, y'all have a good weekend. I've got to go back to sleep. You know, yellow dogs like to sleep a lot. Plus Zozo has been coaching me on the importance of getting a full 18 hours of sleep in everyday.

A week with no Dawgs

Hey y'all. I know it's been a long time since my last post. The Food Guy has been hogging the computer lately. He's been frantically trying to get all his papers finished for the semester, so I haven't really been able to get a chance to give y'all an update on what's been going on around here. 

We made a trip home to Mooresville for Thanksgiving. It was a pretty good time. The Food Guy and his Dad went to the airport to pick up Food Guy's brother-in-law who came down for the weekend from Baltimore. They made the obligitory trip to the Waffle House on the way back from the airport. I hear they made some killer hashbrowns there.

 But, you know the sad 'ol story- no people food for me. All in all, it was a good trip. Food Guy's dad gave me lots of dog bones and I got to hang out on the boat some. 

We rushed back to Athens to make it in time for the Ga Tech game. I have to admit I was glad I got to watch that one on TV. Poor Food Guy stood in the rain all day only to watch our Dawgs lose to a bunch of smart kids from the North Avenue Trade School.

 Boo hiss! I mean, really. Losing to Tech! COME ON! I knew the ridiculous penalties and all the missed tackles were bad when we were playing real schools from the SEC, but to lose to an ACC school- and to Tech our arch rival at that! LAME! Seriously, this ain't basketball. You know ACC rules basketball and the SEC rules football. It's that simple. I like it that way too. We can root for our Heels during basketball season with no guilt because SEC basketball is LAME and root for our Dawgs during football season because ACC football sucks. Well, I guess I shouldn't really say that since we lost to Tech, but you know what: Even a blind squirrell will find a nut once every 8 years so as long as we don't make habit of losing to those nerds I'll get over it. Plus, you gotta stick by your boys even when they do something stupid- like lose to a bunch of geeks.

Anyway, the Dawgs don't play again until January, so it's kind of the boring time of year for football. I'll watch some NFL games and some of the boring bowl games, but mostly I'll just have to wait for the few nights a week when the Heels are on TV dominating. Tomorrow should be good though. Bama will hopefully roll all over the stupid Gators. I hope Cody makes a snack out of that hypocrite Tebow and Saban makes Urban Meyer look stupid. For now, all I can say is Roll Tide. Hopefully the Dawgs will right the ship and put on a good show against whatever Sister's of the Blind school we have to play in our bowl game this year. I shouldn't complain though. We finished 9-3. That ain't too shabby really. Tubberville and Phat Phil would still have jobs if they were 9 and 3. But, we'd better come out tackling and playing smart next year!

Well, the Food Guy still has to wear the stupid red-leg black-leg pants until the end of the year. So, I'll try to get his phone and take some pictures of him tomorrow and give y'all an update on what we've been up to.
