Dreams

I have been napping all morning. I have some serious dreams to dream. Why don't humans sleep more? It is a lot more interesting that being awake. I do manage to wake up for the important stuff--like if MOmmyis heading out the door, I"ll wake up for that. I wouldn't want to miss an opportunity to go bye bye. Today I decided I'd cover the topic of dreams. I'll start with the bad ones called nightmares--these involve scary things like dressing a dog in a costume for Halloween. Good dreams involve all your favorite food, snow and ice, and lots of squeaky toys and dingo bones. I don't tend to daydream because, since I'm a dog, I can sleep anytime I want. You humans might be a lot happier if you were dogs. I've observed you humans. Most of the time, you aren't having any fun. I'd suggest a good nap.

Mommy tried once again to put a Halloween costume on Angel. You should have seen her zooming around the house to avoid it. She really hates costumes. I am still hoping that MOmmy won't be giving our candy away. Maybe if I sit in the window and look mean, it will scare the kids off. I'll use my scary "wolf" look.

I will be such a great president. When a problem arises, I will take a nap and dream a solution. Remember to vote for me.

Why does Mommy give out my candy?

I was just laughing at Angel's post on the Husky Heaven group. There is a contest involving dogs being dressed in Halloween costumes. Angel wrote to express her total disapproval of the contest, Halloween costumes in general, and suggested a contest called "photos of husky tails running away from the Halloween costume" which both of us think would be a far more popular contest. Halloween should be a great holdiday since it involves my favorite food item---candy. Mommy is planning to put the trick or treat stuff in little Halloween bags which is a total waste of time since Angel and I don't care if our treats are bagged or not. I had to explain to Angel that Mommy has been giving the candy away to kids in the neighborhood on past Halloweens, and I'm hoping she has more sense this year. Angel was horrified. She couldn't believe that Mommy would give away our candy. She doesn't even ask us if we care--she just gives out the candy. I'm already drooling over the Milky Way and Snickers. Angel said it is okay to give out the play dough the little parachute guys the little "lunch boxes" of candy we don't like", and the Doritos, but not the candy. I was chatting with another dog, and their humans also give out candy. It must be some sort of human mental illness that strikes on October 31. Last year Jeff had to take me inside because I was outside so I could enjoy the children. Normally I love children, but then I saw Mommy giving away MY CANDY, and I got very upset. That is when Jeff took me inside. Wouldn't any self respecting dog want to run after the little theif who took his candy? Now I know why I've heard the expession "taking candy from a baby". It must have been a dog who is getting his candy back from the little theif. I can't believe human society would allow kids to steal candy just because it is "Halloween". When do dogs get to go out and get candy? If we have costumes on (which the humans are trying to push), shouldn't we get candy from everyone in the neighborhood too? When I become President, dogs will get to go trick or treating, and those humans better give us candy. Happy Howl-oween!

Don't keep me waiting on my food.

I was so happy to get Burger King yesterday. I couldn't believe Mommy would make me miss a day of drive thru. I know it happens on Christmas. I have no idea why they think they should close the restaurant--like Demon Flash Bandit doesn't get hungry because it is Christmas. Mommy usually gets me some the day before and refrigerates them, but it just isn't the same as getting them fresh at drive thru. I love the whole experience--the ride to the restuarant, the employees talking to me (they love the Deemster), and even the fun of blowing the horn when they are too slow. I have no idea why it embarrasses Mommy when Angel and I do that, but we both know how to blow the horn, and sometimes you have to let the employees know that you are very hungry. Now they know we can do that, and they think it is funny unless there is a new employee who hasn't met us yet and then Mommy explains it to them. I have no idea why--if they were faster, we wouldn't have to blow the horn, would we? Angel isn't as fond of BK as I am, but she has tried to jump out of the car and into the window to help them. She does love the oreo shakes. Mommy and Jeff let us have what is left of theirs (like those pigs leave us much) and we both love them. I would like to know why they have combo meals, kid's meals, and big kid's meal, but no doggie meals. I should call their corporate offices and ask about that.

Mommy went to see the movie, Across the Universe last night. I asked if there were dogs in it, and she said no. I wonder why they bother to make a movie without dogs in it.

I need to close with a serious note--I hope the fires in southern CA will be under control today. Mommy has relatives and friends who live there, and I have pals here on dogster. Phoebe, I hope you are okay. Perhaps if all you dogs could pee on it at the same time, it might help. Its too bad you don't have the help of Angel. We don't call her Puddles without reason. HAHA

Until tomorrow.........

Happy Birthday Jambalaya

I want to wish Jambalaya a happy Gifts and Treats Day (translation: birthday-what's a birthday without gifts and treats). Hold out for candy. If your humans refuse to give it to you, make them feel guilty with sad faces. It isn't hard to wrap the humans around your paw.

Yesterday Mommy got some stupid idea about eating at home, and I didn't get Burger King. I refused to eat all day. I refused both ham and roast beef. I wanted Burger King. Mommy should have been worried about me and she should have rushed me to drive-thru, but she didn't. She said I could eat what she had. I have my standards. Of course, last night she found my stash of dog cookies. Why does Mommy always find things like that? Now she doesn't think I'm about to starve. How can she not be worried? It was only one bag of Halloween dog cookies. I have always had a fondness for Burger King. However, don't take me to McDonalds---their burgers don't meet the Demon Flash Bandit standards. Mommy says I am way too picky for a dog. I don't know why she says that. I just happen to know what I like, and I like Burger KIng. I think I should be on their commercials. Hold the pickle, hold the lettuce, give Demon the meat, forget the stupid bun. I only like buns when they are old and hard like a dog biscuit from Burger King....you get the idea. I'm sure the humans would eat there more if it met my approval. I am far pickier than most humans.

The good news is that Mommy isn't planning to eat at home today so its Burger King for the Deemster. YEAH. Mommy tried to put Angel's hot dog costume on yesterday, and it didn't happen. Angel saw the hot dog coming and wouldn't cooperate. I didn't think it was possible that a dog could be even more un-cooperative than me, but Angel has me beat. I wanted to see her wear the hot dog. I'm sure she would be adorable. Besides, I don't want them to decide to dress me as a hot dog.

I've got to get back to my napping. I hope all of you have a good day, and that goes out particularly to my pal, Jambalaya.

I Get the Dundee Award.

Mommy said it was a nice day yesterday--a lot she knows--I didn't see even one snowflake. Mommy and Jeff went to see a movie, Comebacks. Mommy said it was funny. I might have enjoyed it too, but I had to babysit. I think Angel Zoom Smokey is a vacuum cleaner. I know some of you are probably asking why I would say that about Angel. Mommy bought us Arby's roast beef and Angel didn't savor the flavor or enjoy the food. She "vaccuumed: it down. She is quite a good vacuum cleaner. I haven't seen food vacuumed like that since Mommy gave Flash (the bunny) lettuce.

Angel got into trouble several times yesterday. First, she "ate" a new pair of leather shoes, then she found a belt, but Mommy caught her with it before she could do any damage. Then she got Mommy's "The Office" squeeze ball of Dwight's head. Luckily, she was also caught with that. Mommy has no idea why she is so fascinated with chewing leather. Mommy also can't understand our love of "The Office". What's not to enjoy? It is a great show. The reason Mommy knows we love it (in addition to Angel with the Dwight item is that she has found both me and Angel with the DVD, and we both have gotten the Dundee award and the Booblehead out of the box they came in. Mommy bought the special set, and we discussed it, and Angel said the "gifts" must be for us. It makes sense to me.

I'd better get back to my nap. I was about to take the Oath of Office, but we had to stop the ceremony for a MIlkbone Break.

I am Thinking

It's Sunday, and I've been doing some thinking about religion. I can only think about it because we DOGS AREN'T EVEN ALLOWED IN CHURCH. I know I already covered that fact in last Sunday's dairy, but it bears repeating. I may not be able to go to church, but I can think about God and spiritual matters. God has been good to us dogs. He gave us 4 paws to walk on, the ability to nap at will, and teeth strong enough to chew through the toughest rawhide bone. My conclusion is that dogs are his favorite creatures.

I went on a nice long ride yesterday, and it was fun. I love to ride. I had a new Dingo bone last night, and I"m tired of Angel getting one too.

Angel read my diary entry yesterday, and now she wants an Angel Zoom Smokey Day I told her that holidays are already booked, and there isn't room for another one. Besides, she is a puppy. She doesn't need an Angel Zoom Smokey Day.

I hope all of you are having a nice weekend.

Demon Flash Bandit Day

Saturday in the park--I think it is Demon Flash Bandit Day. I remember hearing that song done by a group called Chicago. Daddy and Mommy liked their music. I thought it was nice that they wrote a song about me. A lot of songwriters write songs about me. I've got to admit that it is very flattering. I love having my own holiday, and the song is one of my favorites. Who wouldn't love it? Saturday in the Park...everyday is Demon Flash Bandit Day. People singing, People laughing Celebrating Demon Flash Bandit Day--It makes us so happy. Angel said those aren't the words to the song, but she is a silly puppy who has never heard the song and is obviously very jealous that I have so many songs written for and about me, Demon Flash Bandit.

Mommy brought home 2 Dingo bones last night for me. Angel said one was for her, and that silly Mommy of mine said Angel was right. I took the one Mommy gave me, but the one she gave Angel was accompanied by my disapproval.

My girlfriend, Phoebe suggested that I add more photos to my page. I know she is right, but I have to depend on Mommy and Jeff. Mommy put the photo that is on there now, but she isn't comfortable doing computer stuff like that. Jeff could easily do it, but he is usually rattling on about who is cast as Kirk or Bones in the new Star Trek movie that is going to be made soon. Guess what---they are choosing all humans--no dogs. Dogs aren't even being considered. You'd think that Jeff would realize that if there will be no dogs in the leading roles so why would he even want to see it. I think Jeff wants a role because he is a major Star Trek fan. I hate to say that because he should be busy celetrating Demon Flash Bandit Day, and he is on the computer doing silly movie stuff.

Mommy said I have to get off the computer because she has a lot to do today. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy Demon Flash Bandit Day.

It's Friday so TGFD

October 19th 2007 8:05 am
[ View A Comments ]

TGFD. I'm sure most of you already know the meaning of that since it is so common. It is: Thank God For Dogs. You humans can be so flattering. We love you humans too even when you are so silly. The humans in this family don't even have to take baths or showers because Angel "cleans" them with puppy kisses. She gets so slobbery, and I'm sure the humans love it. Don't all humans love to be slobbered on. Yes, I thought so. I don't have time for giving puppy kisses all the time. Besides, I'm not a puppy anymore. I'm a big dog who is trying to run a presidential campaign. Angel wants to run a campaign, but she also wants to have lots of time for puppy kissing and playing. She doesn't even get her diary done most days because she is so busy playing. At least she is happy. She is also a very pretty dog.

I don't have a lot of time today so I'll end with those important initials that you see every Friday. TGFD. Without dogs, what would the humans do with their weekend off?

I Met a New Friend, Rivy

Thinking up presidential campaign ideas is a lot tougher than I thought. It isn't that I can't think up ideas, but it really cuts into my nap time. Since I'm a genius, as I've already pointed out with some of my ideas-like replacing Angel with a robot dog that doesn't steal my rawhide bones, I am amazed that it is so difficult. Mommy explained that the 2 political parties have large budgets and a lot of money to spend. That did give me some inspiration. The 2 parties can drop their candidates and just tell everyone to vote for me instead. After all, it would save them a lot of money and how can they compete with a dog? I'm not only smarter and more honest, but I'm cute. Would you rather look at one of those silly humans on tv for 4 years or a very handsome blue eyed dog? Not only have I lived a very good life, but I am sure that I am much better at "digging up dirt" on the other candidates than any of them are. How often do you see a human get down and dig in the dirt with their paws?

I met a new friend yesterday, Rivy. She brought her family over, and we had a wonderful time together. I like meeting new friends. Angel liked her too, but I'm sure Rivy liked me more. I know I would like me more if I were another dog. I have a completely unbiased opinion of myself.

I've got to go get some political strategies mapped out. I hope all you dogs are having a good week, and remember, vote for me, Demon Flash Bandit.

I Need New Ideas

VOTE FOR DEMON FLASH BANDIT.......VOTE FOR DEMON FLASH BANDIT......VOTE FOR DEMON FLASH BANDIT. Okay that is the big idea I got whild napping yesterday. I know it isn't great, but I was busy napping yesterday. It is hard to dream up good campaign ideas. One dream, I was walking on an iceberg, but then realized that an iceberg, although nice, wouldn't be a big vote getter. Then I thought that I was teaching a math class, and I had trouble with one of the problems. Again, that didn't seem to help my presidentail run. Then I dreamed Jeff was playing with dolls (he calls them collectible action figures---the dog isn't fooled--they are dolls. You can't fool the dog. Anyway, none of the ideas I dreamed would help me get into the White House. I guess I'll have to work on more ideas today.

Mommy went to see the movie, Elizabeth last night. I have no idea who she is, but she was Queen of England so I'm hoping she was a dog. I could tell the humans that electing a dog to run things is normal--England did it years ago.

I've got to run. What else would you expect from a husky?
