Boy oh boy, have I been excited lately! My tail just won't stop a waggin'. Two of my very favorite humans, Jake and Allison, were on TV this week...not once, but twice! If I seem a little relaxed between my bursts of excitement it is simply because they have been delivering my very own tips for keeping our water clean, giving me a bit of a breather. Or would that be a "panter"?

I'm just being silly.

On Tuesday morning, our Respect Our Waters partner FOX6 gave us the opportunity to see Allison talk about the importance of water testing to ensure the cleanliness of our rivers before going out to do fun things like canoeing, kayaking or swimming. Brian Kramp, who I still haven't yet met in person, had a great time learning about the water lessons and activities explored by kids at River Bend Nature Center's Water Wizards camp.

On Thursday afternoon, both Jake and Allison had a chance to speak on behalf of our partnered organizations, Sweet Water and Root-Pike WIN, on TMJ4! They borrowed a rain barrel and some cool native rain garden plants from my humans' house for the show. Aren't they good at their jobs? I mean, they are no Sparkles, but they are certainly helping me spread the word.

Stay tuned to FOX6 next week! You'll see Allison again on August 3rd during the 9:00 news.

It's getting late. I need dinner and some Zs.
