Costume Contest

October 26th 2009 12:51 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

Saturday, mom, dad, Nina, Mick, and I went to the
Pet Halloween Costume Contest at Petco. I'm the
lucky one (dad says spoiled) that gets to go every
year. This year I went as Steve Irwin-The Croc Hunter!
Mom loves him. Everyone there thought I looked
pretty cool.
Well, when it came time to be judged, I didn't want to
sit on the big stuffed croc mom brought for me. Heehee.
Leave it to me not to do what I'm asked to do!
Aannyywayyyy - there were lots of pups there and all
were cool but . . . I got third place. The judges told
mom later on that I would have definitely gotten first
place if mom would've been wearing a khaki shirt like
mine! First place!!! She didn't know it was a pet and
person costume contest!!! Silly mom. If only there
would've been one of dad's work shirts in the van!
Oh well - I think third place is awesome considering
all the pups that were there.
First and second place went to people that were
wearing costumes.

Live and learn, ma, live and learn.

There's few pics of me as The Croc Hunter.

Remember - Steve Irwin Day is November 15th!


I'm So Charming (Or Is It Charmless?)

Well, today we had a collar change.
We all have our Halloween collars
Mom got sad when she saw that
extra one that belonged to Sparkee.

She went to the craft store the other
day to buy what you need to make all
of us some charms to put on our
collars. She was counting all the
stuff, then realized she didn't need
it all 'cause we have one less pup.
She almost started crying in the
charm isle although her eyes did
get all leaky.

Speaking of ALL the charms she
made (21)-I lost one of mine and
messed up the other two. She started
the blah blah all the work I did blah
blah my fingers hurt making them
blah blah you mess them up blah
blah blah thing! Sheesh!! I probably
did it when I go to the corner of the
fence, jump up and down, bark at
whatever, run around that juniper,
and basically just act like a psycho!
She was bugged 'cause the one I lost
was the coolest one - skull and cross-
bones. She had to make the two over
again and make a new one-the only
one she had left; a turtle!!
She told me she was NOT going to
replace the cool one 'cause I'll
probably mess them up again.

~Reluctant "turtle boy" and
not "Bad to the Bone" anymore~

My "Partner in Bark", Jake

We're all so very sad here.
One of my best buddies crossed over the Bridge today.
Mom and all the ladies here thought he was the most
adorable pup, evah!
Nina called him "Handsome".
Some of us called him "Little Dude".
I called him my "Partner in Bark". You know, kinda
like "partner in crime".
He sure did give me some competition in the barking
Today his little bro and his mom wrote to us and
officially handed me the "Barking Title". This means
so much.

Mom started crying when she read the message.
Actually, she's crying as she writes this for me.
*Sniff - Sniff*

Thanks for being my pal, Jake.
Thanks for being my barking buddy.
You Rock!
You will continue to Rock at the Bridge.
Bark some good, long, loud ones up there for me,
will you.

Run free and well, Good Friend.
We love you, Mr. Bark.

This is the message sent to me from Jake's family:

Woofed From: DARBY
Woofed To: Cooper
Subject: JAKE

Dear Cooper & Mom,
This a.m. I had to help my baby Jake cross the rainbow bridge, I am heart broken but know he is free & happy. So now Mr. Cooper you really do own the Barking title!
God Bless, Jo & Darby

pup can bark! Kinda like me! Barkers Rock!!

Hartford, 'cause he needs to put something current in

Basic Rules For Dogs. This is a new one for me. Funny but- oh, so true!

May 28th 2009 11:06 pm

We thought this was pretty funny. On some of them,
I gotta say *Been there, done that!*

We got these from our good pal, Wyoming. We liked
'em so much that I just had to put them in my diary.


If you have to go to the bathroom while playing in the front yard, always use the newspaper that's placed in the driveway every morning for that purpose. *Only if someone peed on it first. I want my aroma on it last!*

Quickly determine which guest is afraid of dogs. Charge across the room, barking loudly and leap playfully on this person. If the human falls down on the floor and starts crying, lick its face and growl gently to show your concern. *No one's fallen on the floor - yet!*

Because you are a dog, you are expected to bark, so bark a lot. Your owners will be very happy to hear you protecting their house. Especially late at night while they are sleeping safely in their beds. There is no more secure feeling for a human than to keep waking up in the middle of the night and hearing your protective bark, bark, bark. *I LOVE TO BARK!!!!! I LIVE TO BARK!!!!!*

Always take a big drink from your water dish immediately before licking your human. Humans prefer clean tongues. Be ready to fetch your human a towel. *Hmmm - I'm not much of a licker, uh, I mean on someone else.*

Rather than digging a BIG hole in the middle of the yard and upsetting your human, dig a lot of smaller holes all over the yard so they won't notice. If you arrange a little pile of dirt on one side of each hole, maybe they'll think it's gophers. There are never enough holes in the ground. Strive daily to do your part to help correct this problem. *I'm definitely not a digger. I'll leave this one to Redford. He Rocks at digging holes!*

The area directly in front of a door is always reserved for the family dog to sleep. *Nope. I'm a Bed Man. Only the bed will do, or the couch, but not the floor. I'll leave this one to Strider.*

Humans like to be sniffed - everywhere. It is your duty, as the family dog, to accommodate them. *Only if the need arises.*

Always sit under the table at dinner, especially when there are guests, so you can clean up any food that falls on the floor. It's also a good time to practice your sniffing. *No under the table for me. Next to the person, begging like there's no tomorrow is my style!*

Housebreaking is very important to humans, so break as much of the house as possible. *Funny!!*

Rules of the road: When out for a walk with your master or mistress, never go to the bathroom on your own lawn. *Funny again!!*

It is perfectly permissible to lie on the new couch after all your humans have gone to bed. *What!? I get on the couch whenever I please! New or old. That's how I roll!*

If you loose your footing while chasing a ball or stick, use the flower beds to absorb your fall so you don't injure yourself. *No more flower beds here. The fosters all but destroyed them suckers!*

When chasing cats, make sure you never quite catch them. It spoils all the fun. *My own cats, sure, but stranger cats - I can't make that promise.*

Make a contribution to the fashion industry. Eat a shoe. *I don't think so. I'm so beyond that!*


Tagged Again But This Time I Will Dazzle You

Here we go again.
I've been tagged by Scooter.
I'm supposed to write 7 things about myself.
Prepare to be dazzled.
No, I'm not a vampire.
I can dazzle without being one.

1. Mom thinks that I'm a cool, cute, and
cuddly dude . . . 'cause I dazzle her.

2. Mom always gives me the biggest pieces
of whatever she's handing out . . . 'cause I
dazzle her.

3. I'm the one that gets to sleep right next to
mom every night and she puts up with me
alternating being under and on top of the
covers all night long . . . 'cause I dazzle her.

4. One time, long ago, she got a ticket for
having Wishbone on her lap while driving.
Apparently, she didn't learn a lesson 'cause
now she lets me sit on her lap anytime
we go somewhere . . . 'cause I dazzle her.

5. When she's sitting down watching TV or at
the computer, all I have to do is scratch her on
the leg for her to pick me up. Then she hugs
and kisses me . . . 'cause I dazzle her.

6. I can dazzle mom so much that when she
threatens to punish me, all she has to do is
take one look at my face and she totally
forgets to do it.

7. Alright. I gotta admit that in one area I
definitely cannot dazzle mom. That's when
I'm chasing my butt and barking with no end
in sight.
Hey! That came out funny!!! Get it . . . no
end in sight!!
Anyway, I end up doing time in the big house
(crate) with that one.

Well, pups, I hope I haven't over dazzled you.

For any pups reading this, consider yourselves
Now, that's only if you want to, ok.

May you
always have . . .
A sunbeam
to warm you,
Good Luck
to charm you,
And a sheltering
So nothing
can harm you,
to cheer you,
Faithful friends
near you,
And whenever
you pray,
to hear you.

This is my wish for you,
my good friends, and all pups
(and their humans) on dogster.
I love you all.


No More Pink Collar!

Just wanna say that mom took that
dumb pink collar off of me Valentine's
Day night . . . Valentine's night . . . The night
of Feb. 14th!
I'm no longer wearing it - that's the
important part!
I feel much bettah now!
Since I complained so much, she took the
pink collars off of all of us - even the girls.
Now we're all wearing turquoise, white, and
purple collars.
Except for Nina. She's wearing a purple one.
Not a hint of pink!!!
