Looking at the puppies

Yesterday was such a nice day, we went to the park, sat in the shade and looked at all the puppies.  (This was just the "walking around" park, not the "getting to play with the other dogs" park.)

We had such a good time that we hope that today is a "puppy looking day" for you!

It was also a "stick eating day", but I don't think many of you would care to have a "stick eating day".  Although I'm told that it does provide roughage.  All I know is it gives the tall guy a reason to practice saying "Drop it!" like 800 times a minute.  He's gotten so good at it, he doesn't even need to use the vowels anymore, so it ends up being more like "DRPT!".  Which is completely different than his "UHN" sound, which is what he uses when he gets tired of his "NO" sound.  Which is a lot.

On another note, the tall guy wanted me to say "A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU" to everybody in the world.  On Friday, we sold the 1000th copy of my book at Amazon.  So, to celebrate, we want to give away something (not a copy of the book, since most of you already have that).  So, if you leave a comment on any of the blog posts between now and Friday at 5:00, you have a chance to win a $25.00 gift card from Amazon.  Just think of all the dog toys you could buy with that!

And we're still collecting dog recipes for the dog cook book!!


  1. Khongrats on the 1K!!!

    PeeEssWoo: I think that khalls fur a special stikhk!

  2. The first 1000!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. WOW! Nice going Jack & TG!

    I wish I had a recipe to share, but I don't really cook. I like my snacks fresh off the pavement.

  4. Hey Jack, come see us. Bart has a stick on our post!!

    Congrats to you and TG on the first 1000! We never really knew a real author before. That's pretty cool.

    Stay cool!!

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

  5. Mazel tov on hitting 1000! Just 3 more zeros to go and the TG can buy you anything your heart desires!

    Be careful about that stick eating. Jed has personal experience of the damage those frigging things can do when they splinter inside you. Not an experience you want to have, Jack, trust us.

  6. 1000? Really?? That is too awesome! Congratulations Jack & Tall Guy! I'm going to chew on a stick for you today. I love chewing on sticks. They help sharpen my teeth. TEE HEE

  7. Hi Jack! Congrats to you all on 1000 books - wow! Yes, humans have this bad habit of saying 'drop it' just as we're getting into something really tasty don't they? Think we'd better get on a write a book on training our humans NOT to say these things! Dex & Lou x

    Mom cackled at 'drop it'! I bet folks think your name is Jack Drop it. My sis and her hubby already had a parrot when they got their kitty. They half way expected the parrots first words to be 'Harley, No'!!

    Maybe ours was number 1000! Just finished it and now I'm sure my daughter will love it. We hope to get our own four legged friend soon. In the meantime our doggie friend and neighbour Stanley comes to visit us each day to see how we are - he is especially happy to visit when we have a BBQ! Well done to both of you :-)
