Tag, I'm It

I just got a nice paw mail from Lexie asking me to play tag by posting the questions (and my answers) and tagging some of my friends in return. I don't usually play tag because I don't use my Dogster blog very much, because I have a regular blog here, but what the heck.....

Whats your favorite toy?

Mind you, I'm not really "into" toys like some of my dog pals, but right now I have two favorite toys: my big fluffy sheep and my duck. Mom bought the sheep for me at Wal Mart just after Easter, and even though I pulled the eyes out of it when I was bored, I still play with the sheep. It also makes a great pillow to rest my head on. Mom got the duck from the pet store and it makes a loud honking duck sound.

What Jobs do you have?

At home, my main job is making sure mom and dad don't get cold at night, because I sleep on the bed with them and keep them nice and warm. I also make sure nobody steals the couch and that the cat doesn't get in trouble.

I also go and visit soldiers on base so they can pet me and play with me. Mom calls me a "therapy dog", but I'm just having a good time, so I'm not even convinced I'm actually working. When we lived in Northern Virginia, I visited an old folks' home instead of the soldiers, and worked with people who had Alzheimer's and other memory impairments. They were pretty funny sometimes and never remembered my name, but they liked me just as much. I do think I have more fun with the soldiers, though, because I don't have to be quite as careful and calm all the time as I did at the old folks' home.

In northern Virginia, I also worked as a mascot for Army Recruiting and I even got an "Honorary Recruiter" certificate in my name. We would go to some of the bigger events in the area, like the big air show at Andrews Air Force Base and the Army Ten Miler and talk to people about the Army. (Don't let them fool you, they just wanted to pet ME!)

What are your favorite places to go?

I like going anywhere at all, as long as it involves riding in the car. I get so excited about going places. When mom takes the keys from her box by the front door, I know it's time to go in the car and I literally bounce up and down and am ready to go. I'm happy to just go to the grocery store if I get to ride in the car!

What are your favortie things to do?

I like snoozing on my big dog bed in the living room, curling up with my cat pal Finnegan, going places, and meeting people. I love meeting lots of new people.

Well, I don't usually tag, but if any of my friends would like to do this, please feel free to do so and consider yourselves tagged. :)
