Timemachine Thursday

I don't have a lot of pictures or fun stories right no, mom and dad are being BORE-ING! Boo mom and dad! So I decided in my spare time to put together some misc-u-lanious parts of my toys, treats, bullysticks and came up with a time machine! Seriously, get out, I know!
This machine let's me go back and document interesting peoples events until mom and dad get off their arse and do something!
Apparently today in 1954 Ellis Island closed.

What's the big deal with this island? It has no palm trees, no cabana boys with bones. I don't get it. Let's look closer.

Yep, no palm trees, not even sand. Just dirt. But this "island" or dirt in the water as I like to call it, was the way most peoples came to live in America. Apparently it was like the vets office. Peoples came in, got checked out, got some paperwork then went to their new home in America.

But there were a lot of first I thought maybe I had transported myself to the Michael Jackson funeral, but no, I'm in black and white so that's not right. Maybe they wanted to play a giant game of Red Rover!!

So why were these peoples standing in long lines? Being poked and prodded by the island people vets? Then some of them told me it was because where they came from, they weren't as "free" as Americans are. That people and puppies are mistreated and can't "reach for the stars" or get as many stuffies and bully sticks as they can dream about. That America was everyone's dream, where you could do and become anything.

They said the green lady (or light gray in my case) in the water was a symbol of that. I guess we are all lucky to live in this place, where our peoples and mommy and daddy's take care of us. Where we are free to have doggy blogs and squeakers and everything we need.

As I came back to the future (and in color, thank GOD! Grayscale is not very flattering) I realized that this dirt island was very important. It let some 12 MILLION peoples into America. Way to go dirt island! So I will defend America from squirrels and tools, cause I like freedom of life, liberty and toys!


  1. Life, liberty and the pursuit of squirrels? Tee hee..


  2. I agree with B! Life, liberty, and the pursuit of tree rats!

  8. Anna, what a nice history lesson. You look nice in black and white. You are very creative and it is a good thing since your Mom and Dad are boring you so much. Mine do too lots of times.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  9. Yesh! We honor and defend America over and over and over! Our momma said that her grandPAWrents and their PAWrents come'd to America from that dirty island and that the dirty island looked like it was shining in gold and diamonds because it represented FREEDOM!
