June 10, 2010


Yes, you noticed that I had to wear my string yesterday when I was at the water. Evidently, my new name when I am near water is 'HELEN WHEELS'. So, not only am I not allowed off the string, but I've had a sex change as well.

Seriously, this tends to cramp my style, as I can't go exploring more than 8 feet away from the tall guy. I get my revenge by trying to pull him into the water, which he does not seem to enjoy very much. Especially when I am running down the hill dragging him behind me. We do not have any pictures of that. Something about breaking his neck when I pull him and if I pull him in the water, I will not be a happy puppy.

See! I can't even get in the deep water when I'm wearing my string!

He said we would try to find some water that did not have people around so I could play without my string, but it was too crowded with people doing something called 'FISHING' when we were there.

Speaking of which, I need to ask you about this 'FISHING' stuff. We saw a LOT of people with sticks at the water. All of the sticks had strings on them. BUT, I guess all the puppies on the strings were under the water because I did not see any of them.

I looked for them under the water:
but I still did not see them. I would like to know how come all these peoples make their puppies go under the water while they are on their strings. And how do these puppies can stay under water for so long? I would like to play with some of the underwater puppies but I can not hold my breath that long (and the water gets in my nose).

So if you have any ideas about how I can find the underwater puppies, please let me know. And if you know how to keep the water from getting in my nose, I would like to know that too. But if you would like a picture of me running toward the water while the tall guy is trying to keep from sliding down the hill with my string in one hand and the camera in the other, well, that ain't gonna happen!


  1. Ah yes...the dreaded string!

    Does he think woo are a Siberian?


  2. Ha! Helen the new name, Jack.

    What you saw (didn't see) attached to those strings were specific breeds of puppies that are bred so they can hold their breath longer. They're quite small, and just hang around under water making tiny wiggly movements so the fish are attracted--then when the fish get up close, the puppy (I think they're called English Fishdogs) will grab onto the fish's nose with an incredible grip (they are notorious for holding on to the death), then the Fishdog's owner will haul both of them out of the water and take the Fishdog's fish. If they are nice owners, they'll give the Fishdog a treat for a job well done.

    I guess you didn't get to see any in action, it's quite the performance. Maybe you should get your TG to get an underwater camera so you can capture the drama.

    I hope you get to swim with the fishes and Fishdogs next time!

  3. Jack -- you and TG are so funny; you sure make mom laugh a lot.

    Tails Wags,

  4. Wilf is amazed and horrified that you would wish to go within a hundred feet of water.

  5. IF you pulled the TG into the water... he says you won't be a happy puppy? I have a feeling you would be very happy, for a moment or two...

    Not sure about these underwater pups though. Perhaps they are specialists and training with the SAS in underwater stealth, watch that deep water they might just GRAB you in their clutches and drag you down! And we don't want water in your schnoz!

  6. That happens here too. PeeWee needs his string when he goes swimming, but as soon as he sees water he is like super sled dog. I think Momma will be in the water sooner or later.


  7. Hmm...that is very curious business about the poles and strings. My male human does some of this "fishing" business. I think they are catching floppy wet things that smell REAL GOOD! Good enough to chew on, but I am not allowed to chew on it. Maybe next time you go you'll investigate a little more!

  8. Woof! Woof! SEX Change? n Helen. LOL!!! What I find out is that if you are a truly Water Dog - that means you enjoy water n able to swim you can stay under water. When I used to swim in the lake I used to dive down to get rocks - It was FUN but YAKS! I got major allergy on lake/pond/ocean water so for the meantime backyard water is my pool. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. Oh me Jack and TG you have mom lol so hard she had to get a kleenx to her eyes and she said something about ruining something and it was your fault. Helen Wheels....TG/Jack how long does it take you to come up with these things?

    So Jack has TG ever told you not to do something because you might bust your chin wide open? That is Mom's favorite saying....

    Mom and I thank maybe the puppies on strings under the water are looking for the catfish in the water. Now what they will do with them if the find them is another story entirely,
    Madi and Mom and thank you for the LOL/MOL

  10. Hey Jack, I'll just bet Madi with her lazer eyes could tell you all about those underwater puppies! I wouldn't be surprized if she EATS them too!

  11. Hey...I was thinking (don't hold that against me though)since we is furiends now that I could come to da inferno and create a distraction in order fur you to pull da Tall Guy in da waters. You know I'm known fur my schemeing plans...typing abilities not so much.
    Anyways, that would be sooo much fun to watch him go kerplunk and me all screaming and stuffs saying," Help me, help dog drug me in and I can't get up!"
    PEES: uh, you may not want TG to read this

  12. That was suppose to be HIM screaming not me...hehehe! Must go back to typing 101.

  13. Jack,

    I has wondered about that whole fishing thing too. Maybe there are Porteguese Water Dogs at the end of the strings.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  14. Tell TG to buy a 16' can go out twice as far!

  15. Jack -
    10 bucks if you pull TG in the water with you. Just sayin'. -Abbey

  16. really need to come to our lake. There are only a couple of other puppies and only ONE of them likes the water. There are no hoomans with sticks but there are humans under the water S-C-U-B-A D-I-V-I-N-G..

    Smileys & Snuggles!
    Dory, Bilbo and Jacob

  17. If you pull hard enough the Tall Guy could go water skiing....I'm just sayin'....

  18. Dear Helen... er Jack... er Jackel,

    The underwater puppies have schnoorkleese or somethin. Don't bother with that. Set yer mind on gettin the TG down that hill, preferably on his bottom. When we do that to our mommy she says all kinds of HBO words then starts laughin.

    You should definitely try that, yes!

    Bobo and Meja

  19. Jack - you are a great looking lab and I am sorry you can not get loose from your string! I have a yellow and black lab, and my favorite thing to do is to take them swimming....they love it and it is fambulous exercise!

  20. Jack aka Helen Wheels, We are sorry you are tied to a string. HOpe TG can find a place for you to swim free so you can check out those underwater puppies....

  21. Sorry about the string, Jack. But I do say, you make a very attractive girl puppy...


  22. Hi Helen Wheels,
    Or should I say Jack?? Any way I like your new name, Helen..... Those puppies must be a new bread that we haven't heard about....
    Let me know if you hear anything about this new bread, OK???
    Bambi & Fern

  23. OH MY DOG JACK! Woo are so funny! I hope next time woo really do get the TG in the water...he secretly really DOES want to get in!! TRUST ME! Tee-hee!

    Wags and woofs,
    Mack and Mia

  24. Hi, Jack!
    Not funny that string thing, right??
    I can imagine you running down the hill dragging TG behind you! But I guess he does not enjoy that a lot!
    Kisses and hugs

  25. Water water! All good if the water's good :)
    Mom's been eye-snaggled by the end of one of those strings, yeah... don't let them fool you by thinking the ends might be more puppies to play with!! Sorry to say my friend :)
    The waters without the strings...probably the better way to go!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
