It’s an honor just to be nominated. I’d like to thank my dog…

I’ve been so busy lately that I forgot to tell you about Lady M’s latest honor: she’s been nominated for a Grammy!


No, not for her singing, silly! For reading: just like Big Guy!

And I think she’s a shoo-in for this year’s Best Spoken Word Album award for the audio edition of her book American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America. Lady M was as gracious as usual in issuing her acknowledgment of the nomination:

"This nomination is such an honor not just for me, but for everybody who contributed to the garden and the audio book, from the National Park Service employees to our White House chefs to our beekeeper,"

Which was very nice of her since:

Senior Policy Advisor for Healthy Food Initiatives Sam Kass, Executive Chef Cris Comerford, Executive Pastry Chef Bill Yosses, beekeeper Charlie Brandts, and Supervisory Horticulturalist Jim Adams have all devoted themselves to the Kitchen Garden, and wrote sections of American Grown.  The 1,500-square-foot garden is maintained by National Park Service staff.

The only one she forgot to thank was Little Bo


- who logged a lot of hours working the garden plot with Lady M



And even once saved Little Mo when he got caught performing an illegal harvest:

Yes, butt for Little Bo, Little Mo might have been a goner that day:

Don’t worry, Little Mo recovered from his injuries and will be back on the job soon.

Anyway, this nomination marks yet another chapter in MO and BO’s ongoing competitions. You may recall that Big Guy already won 2 Grammy’s for his reading efforts in the same category - Best Spoken Word Album - for his books Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope.  He likewise had people assisting him with his books; butt due to the pressures of having to appear to be a man in full, he didn’t acknowledge any of them.

I’m sure Queen Elizabeth is still enjoying Big Guy’s audio books, which he thoughtfully included on the iPod he gave her filled with his other historic speeches. I know we never get tired of listening to them around here, they’re always good for a laugh. Little Bo plays this part over and over again:

And people wonder why he has issues with anger management and needs to see his therapist once a week – Little Bo, I mean.

Anyway, before you scamper off to bake Christmas cookies:


I thought you might enjoy watching Little Bo’s Big White tour of the Holiday trees. I know; you saw it last week, butt it’s Christmas in Washington! We always do the same thing over and over again! And at least this ramble is cute.

Well, just watch the whole thing. No better way to start a weekend than with an adorable dog stalking his doppelganger.
