Now let's see you go without me!

I have decided that if I lay down in front of the garage door, the tall guy can't leave home without me. But sometimes I fall asleep and he goes out the back door, crawls over the fence, leaps the moat and sneaks out that way.

Maybe I should just buy one of those tracking collars and put on him!

(And just so you won't worry - I don't really get to sleep in front of the garage door. I just like to go out there when the tall guy is getting the mail or working in the front yard. He said there is no way he would ever leave me out there by myself, because I might get interested in a smell 16 miles away and try to go see what it is!)

On another note (E flat perhaps?), I would like to know how many words do you like to read in a book. If you will let me know how many words you like to read, I'll make sure that he doesn't put in too many! And if you have a favorite word, let him know that too. Unless it's a dirty word - we can't put any dirty words in the book. Except 'poop'. We're using 'poop' a lot!

It's 'Just For Dogs' #42 - Foxy Orange.

I'll just be over here
out of the way
for a while

It seems that someone went to the Costcos and bought some new towels to replace the ones that had somehow developed chew holes in them.

And then someone left them on the counter while he went to finish unloading the car.

And then SOMEHOW one of the new towels just happened to end up on the floor.

So I just HAPPENED to be LOOKING at it when SOMEONE came back in the house and pitched a hissy fit.

So, I'm just gonna go sit over here by myself for a while.

(Oh, and the tall guy said to tell you he's almost finished with the first chapter of my book. It's all about the first day I came to live with him. So, if he does one chapter for every day - James Michener eat your heart out!)

I'm Serious!

First, I want you to go watch this:

Go ahead. I'll wait....

(wait, wait, wait)



Is that dog crazy?

Helping with the housework??

If the tall guy ever sees that video,
I'll never get any rest around here.

He already makes me vacuum the floors
and wash the windows.

Well, he makes me move when he's vacuuming
and sometimes I put my wet nose on the windows,
but still. It's exhausting!

So, I think we should all make a pact!
Next time your peoples asks you to take out the garbage
or make the bed, just say these six magic words:

I'm too cute to do housework!

(Here's a picture to put on your blog
if you need to remind them!)

More Fun in the Snow!

I know that some of you are pretty darn tired of snow by now.
So if you will indulge me for just a little bit more.

Oh no, I'm not laughing at you
because you fell down in the snow.
I'm laughing WITH you
because you fell down in the snow!

Snow Butt.
The best kind.
You end up with a lot of these kind of pictures
when you run faster than the person
trying to take your picture.

Cold feets. Cold feets!!

Waiting for the tall guy to throw the snow ball.

This is a LOT EASIER with the baseballs
we usually play with!

Sorry Khyra.

I think we got your snow by mistake!

We got to go play in the snow today. It was great!
Since there wasn't anyone around, I even got to run
without my string
(until I forgot to come back when the tall guy
called me. Then I got re-strung.)

I even tried eating some of the snow!

Yuck, this snow tastes funny.
I think someone has urinated on it.

Oh wait.
I guess that was me!

So let that be a lesson to all of you.
There is no 'P' in 'SNOW'.
Unless I've been there.

I'm so sorry I've been gone.
I had to take a bath.

Some puppies do not like to take a bath, but I do. Especially when I get to use the non-whirlpool whirlpool tub. There are just a few things you need to remember.
1) Do not drink the water coming out of the spigot because then you won't have any water if the shampoo gets in your eyes.
2) Do not let the shampoo get into your eyes or you will not be able to see and then you could bust your head on the spigot.
3) Do not worry. You are too big to go down the drain. Although the tall guy says from the look of all the hair that is left in the tub, most of me DID go down the drain.
4) Wait before you jump out of the tub, because the floor is really wet. How did the floor get wet? I have no idea, because when I was shaking, I made sure that all the water stayed in the tub.
5) If your peoples have any sense, they are half nekkid when they are giving you a bath. This is a good time to take pictures if you have access to the camera, so they will have to give you extra cookies so you won't put the pictures online.
6) Eat the towels is especially fun. The peoples think they are drying you off, but they are really playing keep-away with the towels!

And finally, if you are REALLY lucky, right after you have your bath, you can run outside and roll around in the 'grass' to get dried off. Just remember, rocks does NOT equal grass!!

On another note, the tall guy has not written even one book yet! He said he's organizing his thoughts. I think he just wanted to use the computer to watch the Hulu.

My New Year's Revolution
by Jack

I have been told that this is my New Year's Revolution. I will not discuss WHOM told me this.

My New Year's Revolution - as dictated to me, Jack

I hereby resolve not to bark at the tall guy to try to get him out of bed when he is asleep early in the morning. Unless there is a fire. And by fire, I mean that the house is on fire and that something is burning. Fire does not mean that it is warmer inside the house than outside. Fire does not also mean that I am bored and/or hungry and want the tall guy to get up and do something about it. The End.

Now for the announcement I announced last week.

The tall guy says that I have run out of stuff to say, especially when I am trying to say it every day. Actually, he said I ran out of stuff to say about a year ago, but that's another story. He also said that he wants to start using the computer because he wants to TRY (he said I must emphasize the word TRY) to write a book about me. He said he wants to write a book about a dog where the dog doesn't die at the end. I told him as long as he spells my name correctly that he has my permission. He said I can keep posting, just not every day, because we are poor and it costs money to buy all the vowels that I am using. I think he got hit on the head when he was watching Wheel Of Fortune.

So, there you have it. 805 posts. One for every day so far that the tall guy and I have been together. I've had a great time. So check back next week and see what I did while you were gone. Don't forget me, ok?

We hope you have a wonderful new year and that all your new year wishes and dreams come true.

Until I can get back on the computer again, I shall remain ever your friend.
