Presenting
the latest hit single
from
Bark-ara Streisand

PUPPELS!

Puppels
Are people who need puppies!
They're the luckiest people in the world.


With one puppy,
One very special puppy.
A feeling deep in your soul
Says you're half now you're whole.

But first, be a person who needs puppies.
People who need puppies
Are the luckiest puppels
in the world!

(Sorry Madi - I couldn't figure out how to get kitties worked into the song.
The tall guy took these pictures in the rear-view mirror
while we were waiting for some bagels this morning.
MMMMMMM, bagels!)

Sometimes...
you meet the nicest puppies when you are out for a stroll!

This is Ben.
(His peoples had a much longer name for him,
but he told me his name was Ben.)

Ben was really really nice.
He is 9 years old.
His peoples said he had fun playing with me
because he doesn't get to play with other puppies very often.




The tall guy took off my string so we could
chase the ball and rassle.
He forgot his camera,
so he had to take these pictures
with his telephone.

So, if you see Ben when you are out walking,
please tell him that Jack said hello
and that I would like to play with him again sometime.

I think I'm going to try out
for the
HOWL-EM GLOBETROTTERS!





Oops...
Does anyone have a basketball pump?
This one seems to have developed a slight hole in it!

I should get my own camera!!

The experts say that for the best pictures, you should get down to eye level when you take pictures of your puppies. Well, you see how THAT works for the tall guy (maybe he's TOO tall!).

Even though the vet says I have very nice teeth, I don't think this portrait shows off my best side.

And the Pawlypmic Gold
for SITTING goes to...

ME!





And for all the puppies who are stuck in the house because of the snow:
This is called GRASS. It's what is under all the white stuff that is outside in your yard!
It will come back soon!

(This is a softball field near our house - it is not our backyard.
How can you tell?
No one has gone to the bathroom on THIS grass!)

OH MY BONE!!!

I think the tall guy found a dinosaur or something
because he gave me this really neat bone-y stick-y thing-y!

It smelled like the entire outdoors.

He told me it was a piece of an ANTLER!
Well I would like to thank the ant who gave it to us!

2010 Winter PAWlympics!


First I'm entered in the holding up the flag with 2 hands, er.. paws event.
I think I've got a good chance in that event,
as I've been working really hard to make sure the flag is right side up!

Next comes the eat the popsicles then put the sticks on your feet event.
I like this one because you get to eat all the popsicles while you're practicing!
MMMMM, grape and fudgesicle!

Last, but most importantly, is the pull your leg up over your head event.
Puppies are VERY good at this event because we are very flexible
and can reach all sorts of places when we need to!
The tall guy said this should really be the
'Bad Photoshop' event
and that I would win the gold medal!
If I had any idea what he was talking about,
I might be perturbed!

We Interrupt This Blog
To Bring You
A Very Important Announcement!

I did not even know that you could make noise come out of your butt!
An E flat I think!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog.

(Of course there's a note from the tall guy explaining this! -
As I might have mentioned before, Jack is no different from most puppies in that he sometimes on occasion has G A S. Usually when he's sleeping with his back end aimed directly at my head. At 3AM. I now know where the term 'wake the dead' comes from.
However, yesterday, as we were watching the Olympics, Jack just decides to (how can I put this delicately) 'let one rip'! The most shocked look I have ever seen on his face appeared and he looked around as if to wonder "What in the HECK was that?". This from a dog who doesn't flinch at thunder. And it wasn't even major - it was more like a toot! But it was one of the funniest things I've seen him do in quite a while.

And now I've been reduced to writing about a puppy flatulence. Oh well.
If you're really interested in the subject, here's one guy you should definitely know about: Le P├ętomane).

Doesn't everyone get to go on 3 hour walks?

Can I help it if there are so many smells along the way?

Hmmm, a 2007 golden retriever.
Tart, with a hint of woody smokiness.

Ah, here's a 2004 border collie.
Brisk, with just a hint of serindipity.

MMMMMMM, a finely aged 2000 husky!
I recognize this label -
it's a 2003 Sheba*.
Bold with just a dash of playfulness!

Hmmmm, this one is a bit confusing?
Hey, wait a minute.
This is just a regular old bush.
Why am I wasting my time on this?


* From the tall guy: Sheba is one of the huskies we sometimes see on our walk. She wants absolutely nothing to do with Jack as he is a bit 'rambunctious' for her. If you've ever seen a dog look at their owner with a 'Would you get me away from this crazy fool?' look, that is exactly the look Sheba gets whenever she sees Jack.

More Fun in the Snow!

I only pretend like I'm paying attention! It's very easy to do. It's all in the eyes!

I find that if your tongue and tail go in the same direction,
it makes the picture look more symmetrical.



Not the best video, but for some reason the tall guy thinks it's important
NOT to fall down when he's in the snow. I keep telling him we can win
$100000 on America's Funniest Home Videos,
but he is rather unreceptive to that idea!



This is snow.
Really!
It just happens to be snow that is going on vacation
down the mountain.

Evidently, I am an
EXCITED NAKED HORSE!!
(The tall guy says I'm full of 'unbridled enthusiasm'.)

What? What?
Where are we going?
Is that a squirrel?
Do you smell that?
Oh, I told you about those bean burritos!!
LOOK!!

Is it?
YES,
it's SNOW!!
Snow, snow, snow, snow, snow!
Hurry, let me out of the car.
You can leave it running - no one will steal it!

LOOK!
I'm all the way down here!
Run!!
Oops, I forgot you don't run as well as I do.
Don't worry, your pants will dry on the way home!
Those were some very interesting new words.
I'll have to look them up when we get home!

I think a 'YEE-HAW' would be appropriate here.
This is even better than the last time we were here.
There is a lot more snow.
So I can jump, jump, jump
in the snow, snow, snow!


What?
I can put up some more snow pictures tomorrow?
And maybe even a video?

COOL!!!!

Jack's Believe It Or Don't!
(It doesn't really matter to me!)

It's a fact:
Coyotes can not kill you simply by looking at you before 8AM!
After 8AM, you're dead meat!
We saw a coyote out in our neighborhood the other morning.
He was just standing in the middle of the street.
(The tall guy wouldn't let me go talk to him and say hello,
which I thought was awfully unneighborly!
Besides, he was so worried that the coyote wasn't going to be friendly,
that he didn't take any pictures.)

But then LO AND BEHOLD (there's that behold again),
what did we see in the park this morning,
but THIS:
That's right. It's a SPEEDIPUS-REX.
Actually, we see a lot of road runners.
I just thought it was neat that we saw it after we saw the coyote!
It's a fact:
Road Runners CAN kill a coyote
if they have a rifle with them at the time!

It's a fact:
I know it's hard to believe, but...
some puppies prefer NOT to have their picture taken!


"Don't take my picture!
Do NOT take my picture!"
"You want a picture - HERE!!"
(I was a little perturbed that the tall guy was taking my picture while I was trying to play!)
It's a fact:
Dog boogers will NOT stick to an expensive camera lens
until you are trying to take a good picture!

Look carefully at the next pictures. There WILL be a quiz at the end!
HMMMMMM, what can that be?
MMMMMMMMMM.
What do you mean, I'm not supposed to eat it???
One of my favorite buddies sent me this great card.
Here's the quiz!
If you can name the puppy who really likes SBSP,
you'll know who sent me the card!


That's right. It's my NASTYCAR buddy,
Remington!

Hello, Remington!

It's a fact:
SpongeBob SquarePants actually lives in a condo in West Hollywood
with his mother and two cats!

And there you have it -
BELIEVE IT
OR
DON'T!!


(From the tall guy:
And here's some more stuff to help you wile away your day:

An Almost Live Report
from the DOGTONA 500!!

Remington and I got off to a great start at the Dogtona 500! We were determined to go all-out until we reached the checkered flag.

Since I had forgotten to get the tall guy to teach me how to drive, I kinda sorta messed up our Purina Pro Plan #72 car during the practice laps before the race. (Note to self: Left is <--- that way.)

But fortunately, Dale Earnhardt Jr. let us borrow his #8 car since he isn't using it any more!

We were having a great race - everything was going smoothly. Remington was leading the pit crew like a well-fed team of Siberian Huskies!


We were in the lead with only one lap left to go!

And then it happened!

How was I supposed to know that you can't stick your head out of the window during the race?
So, I got kinda got a little bit disqualified.

So, I think we have all learned a valuable lesson here.
First - learn how to drive BEFORE the race starts,
Two - Sticking your head out of a car window at 200 mph
is not really a good idea,
and thirdly -
Life is like the Dogtona 500.
Good friends stick by you even when you don't win the race!

I am a Valentine!

At least according to the tall guy. I felt bad because I did not have no money to buy him something, like a new car or a big teevees or a candy bar. But he said it was ok, because I was better than a car or a teevee or even a Reese's Blizzard. He said I will always be his Valentine, even when I get to be a big boy.

Happy Valentine's Day tall guy.
(and to all my friends!)

Hey, I'm a CANIS VIRGAPHILE*!!

*A puppy who loves sticks

"Bark softly and carry a big stick!"

"Stick with me and we'll go places."

E'er none compare,
Whilst walking forth,
With sunset drawing nigh,
Young man, alone,
Is heard to say:
"Don't make me whop you upside
your pointed head with this stick!"

And then, is but a sigh!

BEHOLD!!


Behold is a cool word. I think we should use it more often in our everyday speech. I am beholding something outside. Can you tell what it is?*

So, your assignment today is to go out and behold something! And then be coming back here and be telling everyone what it was you beheld, er... beholded, er......beholdeded.

*It was 2 birds sitting on the fence. They flew away before the tall guy could get the picture!
