Smells Like Chicken, Tastes Like Turkey!

Okay a special blog for all you canine-human pups out there. Psssst, it's time to gather around the big ol' table of love next week when the human peoples have that HUGE meal and all the trimmings!

Gather around and let's talk turkey. I'll demonstrate some ways to ensure that you and your animal friends alike will be able to have your own feast on that special day.

Strike a pose and follow my expressions. 'wiggles eyes'

First, after you creep up to the table, look away abruptly. They will think you're just performing your daily walk of exercise.

Second, appear disinterested in their mundane conversation. Say something along the lines of - 'was that Santa I just saw and his eight smelly reindeer?'

Third, try a new disguise!  A cool elf hat is sure to win you points on the meal. And then put on your weakest look.

And if no one pays attention - grovel, moan, sigh heavily until you sneeze thick mucus from your nostrils. OKAY, maybe not that latter part. It isn't a sure bet that you will get any closer to the big bird on the table. In fact being chased away is your best bet.

And FINALLY, put on your best  pose yet. I've been so good all year round. It's almost time for Santa Paws and I'm so weak I can barely stand for this picture. Please feed me and I will be on my best doggie behavior for the rest of the year!

I'm telling you pups, it works. Try it and let me know the end result!

Till later loving doggies and doggie lovers!

Welcome Home, Give ME Treats!!!

I must get the word out. Mama's friend came home from the hospital today!!!


I loves Chrissy cause she's so sweet to my Mama. Speaking of, do I see any Scooby snacks in my future? HUH? Not that I was bribed to blog. No way, no how. I just wanted to express my inner doggie urges and gratitude for my buddie's quick recovery.

'wiggles eyes, flashing that adorable doxie grin.

So, pssst tell Mama you want a box of turkey apple bite treats, a jar of snausages and some shark cartilage bones tossed in with about fifteen bags of healthy recipe multi-veggie biscuits.

AHEM, just sayin' it always helps me feel lots and lots better when I'm TREATED just right. 'Scratches neck' and if you don't want any of those special requests I just made, can always send 'em to me cause that'd be wayyyyyy sweet of you. Just like I know you are anyway.

I'll let you in on a secret.

'whispers'  never mix the snausages with the turkey apple bite treats. YUCK!

That's right, you heard me. Nasty after taste develops.

I've got plenty of other suggestions for recovering at a quicker pace. So just ask me. They involve lots of pampering, which I'm sure my Mama would do for you. I'll put in a good word for ya.....if you make it worth my time, ahem.

Anywho, time for a snack. All this talk has made me hungry. Let's see what I can talk my good Mama into giving me this evening.

I ruff you, Chrissy! 'licks your cheek'

Weeeeee, I'm a bat. I crack myself up sometimes.

Till later doggie lovers and loving doggies! 'wink'

Singing The Blues and Why That's a Good Thing!

"Does the happy snoopy dance in the air'

I got a special present from Mama's friend last night.


(Posing for my best side)

Us little tykes with practically furless bodies have to stick together. We need warmth and love and people like Ms. Chrissy to pamper us just like our mommies!

Okay, okay I'm a happy pup. As I've eluded to before I have a fleece fetish. Can't help it and there isn't even a self-help program for my recovery efforts. But I really don't care cause I LOVE FLEECE!

AND best of all my snuggie is made of fleece, (there could be no other material ever that I would love more) but on second thought, ahem, my Mama got a snuggie too and it looks a little bigger than mine. So I think I may have to play extra nice, use all my loving charm and beg for hers too.

You laugh? It's actually worked before but I have a feeling even she might not give up the snuggie very easily. Something about it being a gift and a really sweet person giving it to her. I have to agree though on the last part.

Well, I shall snuggle up with my snuggie, heeheehee! It's raining cats and dogs here today. YIKES! Who said that? I think I hit a sensitive nerve there.


I've never understood what that meant. I mean really, I've never seen it rain anything but water. I could understand if maybe once it had rained a ferret or groundhog, but I've never seen it rain felines or canines.

Now of course I could understand if it rained poodles. There's something odd about curly fur and no I'm not jealous. I mean is it a sheep or a poodle? I want to know what my breed looks like. Don't need to be confused with another animal.


Anyway, my monologue for today is nearly over and I shall stay comfy, snuggling with my new snuggie.

Thanks again, Chrissy. 'licks your cheek.'

Pssst, doggie lovers get your pet a snuggie, especially the small pooches. They will love you forever!

Things Pups Are Thankful For This Time of Year!

I was sad when I learned that Mama and Chrissy couldn't take me on a vacation this month.

'Scratches behind ear.'

I mean our vacation to Pigeon Forge was rescheduled (hopefully) for next month. I had never heard of the place and all of a sudden I have an extreme fondness for pigeon sighting. I mean I've seen birds, I know what pigeons look like. (They're so oddly shaped from other birds). But now all I have is pigeons dancing inside my little canine brain. That and some woman singing country music songs, that my Mama keeps telling me is a well known singer - Dolly Parton.

Anyway, I decided in my moments of anguish from our vacation postponement that I would list some things that make me happy and thankful to be a canine.

#1 - That I'm not a canine, I'm a human in a fur-trapped body. (and no I'm not delusional, it's just the way it is.)
#2 - Mama's love (even though I'm convinced she could be less stingy on those scrumptious treats.)
#3 - Wonderful grandparents that accept me as the human dog I am.
#4 - Heaters, fleece and the ability to get warm in 0.2 seconds.
#5 - Health, even though I'm older, Mama pampers me, takes me to my vet and to see specialists when I need it. And when that Chronic Bronchitis flares up, she loves me anyway and gives me chewy, tasty antibiotics. (She tries to make even the medicine I take yummy if she can.)
#6 - Pigeons 'rolls eyes' Why I have no idea. I just have a fondness for pigeons these days. But one question escapes me.

Do they taste like chicken?
