Whats New in Dogville this week #1

For those that are new to our blog - ME and Mom - sorry Mom - "Mom and I" have our own model train layout and each week we are going to share what is new in our "Dog Inspired Town" that we have called Dogville. We have and still are - naming many of our buildings and other things after our dog blogging buddies and everything we add to our town we try to make doggie related - so here we go for this week. Make sure you click on the pictures so you can see the details!

The first thing is Miss Asta's Gazebo - and you can see - we have added Miss Asta to it - isn't she cute! Miss Asta still needs our 'power of the paws prayers' while she waits for her test results to come back. We will add her markings later - Mom has a cold at the moment and is sneezing to much to paint such a teeny tiny thing. We also have a new B&B&B (bark, bed and breakfast) which we don't have a name for yet. Suggestions are welcome.

Next we have added a dock and a boat to Lake Misty Shores (named after Miss Sara's Angel girl Misty). There is actually a doggie on the dock -can you see him? You can also see Angel Maggies swans and ducks on the lake.  And FINALLY - gee Mom thanks!!! Something named after me! O'Reilly's Hotel - the MOST pet friendly hotel you will ever find - we are taking bookings now and our restaurant and room service caters just for us - plus there is Pip's Roadkill Cafe just down the road.

After MUCH hunting online we have found as many doggies as we could to include in our layout (we continue to look too) We are trying to find ones that remind us of our buddies.  As you can see from the penny - they are SMALL! And yes you see right - that dog is peeing on the fire hydrant!  Next we found this awesome truck that reminded us of Bert and Sugar - their pictures are on each side!

We also wanted to honor 9/11 which is when Mom actually arrived in the States, became an American Citizen on - and has special meaning to everyone so when we saw this truck - we had to have it. And what town wouldn't be complete without a KFC. Mom has fond memories of KFC as it was the 1st American fast food place to build in her small town back home in Australia and she loved it! She doesn't like the American KFC though - it is too peppery.

Lastly we had to include this Nestle carriage for Dad as he works for Nestle.  And of coarse - when we saw this Milk-Bone carriage  or hopper as they call them - it was also a must have. Oh, we also added some BIGDOGS (horses) - you can see them in the background. Mom almost forgot about them!
