Needless to say, I got a real bath when we got home.

See what I have to put up with?

While other dogs get bones and balls and stuffy things, all I get is the LID off the mashed potatoes.

AND I didn't even get no mashed potatoes.

I don't even know what mashed potatoes are.

But from the way the tall guy was wolfing them down, they must be pretty good.

On another note, don't forget that the Blogville and Cat Blogosphere "We don't want to get sued for saying the word 'OLYMPICS'" start today!  You can see the schedule HERE! (Thanks Madi's Mom!)  I don't compete until Monday (the Beach Ball event), so I'm just gonna hang around the athlete's village and see if I can find me some mashed potatoes!

Eating my Cheery-Os!

The tall guy eats a bowlful of Cheery-Os almost every morning, so he always gives me about 10 Cheery-Os to eat, primarily so I won't be asking for some of his.

He found the easiest way to do it is to throw them on the couch so that I have to try to find them.  He calls this his "Dear God Jack, give me TWO seconds to eat in peace" trick!  He's got it down pretty well as it takes me about 2 seconds before I find them all and then I can stare at him until he gives me some of his out of his bowl.

I think eating out of the couch is a whole lot better than eating out of a bowl, don't you?  Although I don't know where you would pour the milk!

My name is Jack

and I'm a bean-aholic!

I'm pretty sure that I've told you about the beans
that come out of the sky here.

They are just all over the ground.

And they are DELICIOUS!!

The tall guy says they are like "puppy crack" because when I get around them, all I want to do is eat them and I tend to focus completely on them and nothing else!

Fortunately, they are all around at this time of year, so I always have a ready supply.

Unfortunately, the tall guy won't let me eat all of them I want.
He says not to worry about me eating so many beans, because they just go in one end and out the other!

PS.  They are called 'mesquite beans' because they come off of the mesquite trees (maybe they don't ACTUALLY fall out of the sky!).  The early settlers used grind them up to make flour out of them.  

Oh and here is a bush that is out in front of our house.  There are a lot of THESE around as well.

It is very purple.  It's called a Texas Sage and almost every yard has one.

I almost forgotted!!

We have had some of this lately:

and we've been having so much fun out playing in it 
that I almost made me forget to show you
Sophie and Hamish 
and their book that they won!

They had LOTS of beautiful pictures to put in it
and I'm so glad that they liked their book.

Shhh, don't tell anyone,
but I think the tall guy has
an idea for another book,
but he will definitely need YOUR help.
More to come!

Today was, what the tall guy so nicely puts it, a 
SAEDBAS* walk.

It seems that I was taking my time on our walk this morning,
while the tall guy was trying to get home so he could watch a bunch of people ride bicycles around France.

Needless to say, I didn't get to S and S as many of the D Bs as I would have liked!

*Stop at every darn bush and smell
** The tall guy just makes up acronyms 
whenever he feels like it!

It's SO HOT!!!

It's so hot outside, all I want to do is sleep inside.
Oh, and eat.
Is it hot where you are?
Who do we write to complain?

Here's one butt...

I don't need to see at the dog park!!

Don't be smoking no cigarettes,
especially around your puppies.

You should be smoking cookies instead.
That way, it won't matter where you drop them!
