I want to conpawtulate my pal, Zoe, for being a diary pick today! I didn't get to write yesterday because the dogster site was giving me some trouble, and I couldn't get to the diary entry page. I had something exciting to share with you so I had to be more patient than usual I think once my readers see what I have to write about today, they are going to be super excited.
I was in the kitchen going through the cabinets when I found a cookbook which is called The Treasury of White Trash Cooking by Ernest Matthew Mickler and Trisha Mickler. I took one look at that title, and I kept thinking, "I must be the luckiest dog in the world!!! I started glancing through the cookbook and my original assumption was genius. This book is truly a treasure trove of wonderful recipes!
The recipe I am sharing today is in honor of my pals, Whitley and Finley who I thought about as soon as I saw this recipe. Here it is:
Squirrels A La King
Soak 2 dressed squirrels in salt water overnight to freshen them up. An hour or two before dinner, wash them rascals in 2 changes of cool water. Throw them in a kettle with enough water to cover Add 2 halves of an onion, some celery salt, and pepper; Then bring to a boil. Skim the surface foam from the bubbly stew and let simmer until done. Drain and dry the squirrels Then split them down the back and brown the 4 halves in a buttered skillet until golden brown. This is best served with cabbage. By the way, I would skip the cabbage because this dog is not a cabbage fan!
Before I make any further comments, I know that one of your first questions will be, what kind of clothing is best for dressing a squirrel? That answer is simple, but it is not one of those "one size fits most" situations. If it is a formal dinner--like Christmas, weddings, or you are having Bo Obama, first dog, over for dinner, dress them in tuxedos and formal wear. If it is a normal dinner, casual wear should be okay. Jeans and a t-shirt would be perfect. If you are having a luau or a beach party, dress them in swimwear. If you really want to shock your guests, serve them naked. I think you get the idea. Now go get yourself a squirrel, and start cooking!!!!

Conpawtulations to Puff for being a diary pick today. I didn't write an entry yesterday so I want to conpawtulate my pal, Echo, who was a diary pick and Zeus who was chosen as dog of the day!
Does Walmart ever do anything sensible? I do think that it is a store that should have their CEO replaced by a dog. I would say they could hire me, but I don't think I'd want the job particularly since the store is based in Arkansas, and I would demand to get a position where I would have to move to Alaska. Why Alaska? Because sled dogs love snow and cold!!! I am referring in this situation to the local Walmart down the road from us that fired an employee because he came to the aid of a customer who was attacked on the parking lot. Evidently, this goes against "company policy". I think it was a very heroic thing for him to do. If he had not stepped in, the customer might have been seriously hurt or even killed. Once the story hit the Internet, he was offered his job back. I don't know if he will take it or not, but I hope he holds out for a better position with another company. If this dog were running a company, I would love to hire someone like that because I would think that a human like that would make an excellent employee. I know some of you are thinking, Demon Flash Bandit, why don't they hire you to run Walmart. The answer is as simple as the claws on my paws. I don't want to work for Walmart. It would interrupt my naptime, and I do not do cheers even for dingo bones. This dog has standards. Believe me, when a customer overhears a group of employees doing the "Walmart cheer", the average reaction is that they want to get out of the store before it gets crazier!

Conpawtulations to my pal, Zaidie, and myself for being chosen as dogster diary picks today. The humans at HQ are a lot more likely to pick your diary as a diary pick if they learn you have a gun. LOL Of course, I found out after the humans confiscated my weapon that it is a non-working bb gun. I think that is a rotten trick to play on a dog, but I suspect they never thought I'd decide to carry a gun. Maybe I should go to the gun store across the street and buy one that works. With my blue eyes, I'm sure they would assume I am a human. From what I've read in the news, everyone can buy a gun-even birds. I personally think that birds should not be allowed to buy guns! I call it bird gun control.

I want to conpawtulate my lovely wife, Savannah Blue Belle for being chosen as dogster dog of the week! Savvy has not been on dogster as much as she used to, and I have missed her presence on here. I also want to conpawtulate my pal, Anya for being chosen as a diary pick again today! I am so fortunate to have such wonderful pals!
I had put a few new things in my new "closet den", and Mommy cleaned out the stuff that I had carried in there. The humans were a bit surprised when they found a pair of "camo" binoculars and a gun that I had brought in there. What do they expect? A dog needs to protect himself. My blog is www,demonflashbanbit.blogspot.com if you want to read the details.
When you read my blog, I think you'll see my point about why I need the items I had.

I would like to conpawtulate my pals, Mr. Cutter and Anya for being chosen as diary picks today!!!
A fantastic movie just came out on dvd, and I gave it a movie review on my blog today. That movie is Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-aday Adventure. This is the sequel to Alpha and Omega. If you want to read my review, here is the address:
This movie is fantastic because it not only has Alpha and Omega--2 very gorgeous wolves who look a lot like dogs particularly huskies, However, to make this movie even better, Alpha and Omega have 3 puppies. I don't think I have to tell you that, when you really want to make a movie great, add puppies,. It works every time! There are 2 more sequels in the works. I am very excited to see them!

I would like to conpawtulate my pal, Mr. Cutter for being both a dairy pick and the dog of the day!!!! There must be some major celebrating at Mr. Cutter's house today!!!
Did you know that there are humans who think that a zombie apocalypse is inevitable? This worries me because zombies eat brains. What if they realize that the human brains are not nearly as smart as a dog's brain? I'm keeping my paws croseed that this never happens, but a dog can't keep from worrying. I've grown rather fond of my brain, and I'd like to keep it.

I would like to thank dogster for choosing my diary as a diary pick two days in a roll!!! I also want to apologize for not writing yesterday. My brother, William, was hogging the computer most of the day. Yes, this is the brother who petted a bird and thought the cockadoodle doo would make a good pet. Perhaps I need to keep a close eye on that kid!!! Conpawtulations to my pals, Zoe and Ella for being chosen as diary picks yesterday, and to Zoe for being chosen again today! I also want to thank Hershey and Van Winkle for the blue ribbon on my page. Thanks for suggesting that I should be getting a Puplitzer Prize for my work. I also want to thank all the wonderful dogs who sent me bones. They are delicious!
I thought you might like to read an excerpt from my new television show that I wrote about yesterday.
The theme song has just played and I come in and sit down on the floor and I start changing my shoes. I am putting on sneakers that are more comfortable, and I'm talking to the puppies in my neighborhood.
Yes Puppies, no matter how many times you tell a squirrel that he does not belong in your yard, he will show up again the next day. Whether it is because he is stupid or just a smart aleck, I'm not sure. I suspect it is for both reasons.

Most puppies are taken from the dog parents at an early age and given to humans so I think it is about time I make a television program for young puppies to teach them the ways of being a dog.
My show is the Demon Flash Bandit Morning Dog Show, and it airs every weekday at 3:00pm. You don't expect me to get up before noon, do you? Besides I am supposed to be bringing up these puppies properly and sleeping through the morning is one of the first lessons a puppy needs to learn!
Here is the theme song:
It is a beautiful day in my neighborhood
A beautiful day for dogs and cats
But if you see a squirrel or bird,
They have got to go!
Grill them or fry them, they make a good dinner or even a snack!
The humans appreciate out educating the young pups so that they keep their home values high. Humans, you are welcome!

I heard a lovely song on the stereo today whose lyrics I am sharing with my pals on dogster. Here they are:
Things are swell
Things are great
Gonna eat every bird on a plate
Eating Bird every meal
Everything's coming up Bird Meat for me
and Angel Zoom Smokey
I think Mommy played this song deliberately to help soothe my nerves from the run-in with that awful bird on the Kroger parking lot yesterday!

I'm sorry I haven't posted for the past 2 days. I was busy the first day doing dog things. You know what I mean: guarding the house, barking, and sleeping--you know all serious dog activities! Yesterday I was too traumatized to write and tell you what had went on in my life. We went to Kroger to buy a Sunday newspapaper. Yes, you are correct--humans are unable to read things for themswelove. That is one of our jobs as the family dog--to read it to them!
When we got to Kroger, there was a man out of his car on the parking lot and he had a bird in his paw. The bird was a "cockadoodledoo" which I assume must be some breed of chicken so I thought maybe the man was going to throw him on a tailgate barbeque and give all us dogs a taste. The human was not so sensible. He was letting people pet the bird (incidentally, the bird was white--not even colorful like some birds). There were a bunch of people surrounding the stupid bird waiting to pet him. By the way, the bird was a male who is 10 years old. How do I know these details? Because my idiot brother, William, went over to pet the stupid varmint. He came back to the car and said the bird was soft, and he would like to have one!!! I was mad and traumatized at the same time over William fraternizing with the enemy!! I have to go now, and try to find a doggy psychiatrist who specialized in trauma treatment!
