Pass The Football

Alright My Wonderful Pup Pal! You made it here. I see you caught my football pass. Here is what you should do next! Hurry and pass the ball to 5 of your teammates so they can make a touchdown. You are also supposed to write down 5 things about yourself that are funny. Also please leave me a bone and ask all those who visit your diary to leave you a bone so you will know they have been there! Ok…Here goes the play!

1. I get the zoomies every night between 9:30pm and 10:30pm – I start running back and forth upstairs and sometimes up and down the stairs.

2. In the morning, I won’t come downstairs until I hear my mom start to put on her sneakers or when I hear her grab my collar and leash off the hook.

3. I will pull and tug at the pillow in the middle of my bed for 2 minutes trying to get it just right. If I can’t, I’ll stop, get off the bed and either get on the couch or jump on my mom’s bed … depending on where I am.

4. I’ll take all the toys out of my toy chest until I find the right one (my mom wants to teach me how to put them back because sometimes I make a mess).

5. I’ll drop my tennis ball on the hill in my backyard so it will roll into a hole I’ve already started digging. I do this so when it falls into the hole, I can start digging some more making my mom think I’m trying to get the ball out of the hole.

I am passing to:
1. Jena
2. Yukiko
3. Jamoncito
4. Mulligan
5. Hooch

 

SLEEPING WITH YOUR DOG!

November 14th 2008 11:04 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Here’s another great article my mom wanted me to share with all of you from Pet Lovers Tips – For the Love of Dog … Can any of your pawrent(s) relate? ... BOL!

Whoever said “LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE” didn’t sleep with dogs.

The first thing you discover when you bring a dog onto your bed is the striking difference in weight between an alert, awake dog and a dog at rest.

Rule Number One: The deeper the sleep the heavier the dog.

Most people who sleep with dogs develop spinal deformities rather than rent the heavy equipment necessary to move their snoring canines to a more appropriate part of the bed. Cunning canines steal precious space in tiny increments until they have achieved the center position on the bed - with all covers carefully tucked under them for safekeeping. The stretch and roll method is very effective in gaining territory. Less subtle tactics are sometimes preferred. A jealous dog can worm his way between a sleeping couple and, with the proper spring action from all four legs, shove a sleeping human to the floor.

Rule Number Two: Dogs possess superhuman strength while on a bed.

As you cling to the edge of the bed, wishing you had covers, your sweet pup begins to snore at a volume you would not have thought possible. Once that quiets down, the dog dreams begin. Yipping, growling, running, kicking. Your bed becomes a battlefield and playground of canine fantasy. It starts out with a bit of “sleep running”, lots of eye movement and then, suddenly, a shrieking howl blasted through the night like a banshee wail. The horror of this wake-up call haunts you for years. It’s particularly devastating when your pup insists on sleeping curled around your head like a demented Daniel Boone cap.

Rule Number Three: The deeper the sleep, the louder the dog.

The night creeps on and you fall asleep in the 3 inches of bed not claimed by a dog. The dog dreams quiet slightly and the heap of dog flesh sleeps - breathing heavily and passing wind. Then, too soon, it’s dawn and the heap stirs. Each dog has a distinctive and unpleasant method of waking the pack. One may position itself centimeters from a face and stare until you wake. The clever dog obtains excellent results by simply sneezing on your face, or they could romp all over your sleeping bodies - or the ever-loving insertion of a tongue in an unsuspecting ear.

Rule Number Four: When the dog wakes - you wake.

So, why do we put up with this? There’s no sane reason. Perhaps it’s just that we’re a pack and a pack heaps together at night - safe, contented, heavy and loud.
