Here in Chicagoland we have these things called "17 Year Cicadas".
Mommy is getting *very* freaked out about them since she's not a big fan of bugs to begin with and didn't live here 17 years ago so she has no idea what they are like. Apparently they have red eyes and shed their carcasses as part of the mating cycle. Sidewalks get crunchy with all of the discarded shells. The noisy box with pictures on it talks about them all the time now - every day is a new cicada horror story. Swarms of cicadas ruining outdoor weddings, etc.
My Auntie Pam -- also not a friend of nature -- is considering living in a giant plastic hamster ball untill it is all over.
I on the other hand, am QUITE excited about these cicadas. Mommy read an article about dog safety in which these cicadas are like "flying candy" to dogs, and they are fairly safe unless you eat a whole lot of them and then you just get a bellyache. I'll have to update you guys when they finally arrive - which should be just in time for dog camp next week!

 

I hope the superbowl has some hot dogs or cheese in it

I live in Chicago and I've been hearing a lot of talk recently about something called a "superbowl" with "the bears". I keep looking and looking for a big giant bowl on my walks outside but I have yet to see it. A SUPERbowl must have some really good things to eat in it. Like bacon. And Velveeta. And whatever bears eat (honey? picnic baskets? park rangers?). I can't wait for the superbowl, it sounds delicious. And if it is big enough for a bear I think it is big enough for me. Ooooooh. I almost forgot to tell you. I have a new dog bed. Mom calls it a sofa for people but I know it is really for me. The man at the furniture store told her and David that they were putting a stain guard on the sofa that repelled dogs. Well I can tell you that it's a bunch of hooey! It is my new favorite place to shed. I'll keep you guys in the loop about this whole superbowl thing, fellow Dogsters.

 

I'm a Halloweiner!

Yesterday was sooo much fun. Boy am I pooped though. Good thing I'm in my crate while Mommy works and Lara From Upstairs Who Sometimes Gives Me Treats lets in the cable guy.
First I got to drive in the car and then it seemed like everyone was paying attention to ME, ME, ME! Granted I was dressed pretty funny. I was dressed as a witch. My costume was green and black striped tights (cut with a generous hole to allow movement and uh allow me to do my "business"), a black tulle skirt and a little witch's hat with green and black braids. Unfortunately, Mommy has NO pictures so I can't show you exactly how cute I was. I was surprisingly good about the hat. I did not try to eat it or anything.
We met my friends Ursula and Susie. They are very small, but I like them a lot. Ursula is a terrier mix and Susie is a Yorkie. Ursula was a cute green bug and Susie was a ladybug. Poor Susie could not really see out of her costume when she had the hood on. Their mommy Alicia takes them everywhere, I’m very jealous. We stood around for a while and then there was a hot dog dunking contest. I think I really have this one down now -- I've seen it a few times before at dog camp and at the Recycled Rotts picnic. I gobbled up those hot dogs really fast! I did not win a prize at that but I did get to eat the hot dogs so it was a victory anyways.
There were some really good costumes including a beagle dressed as Dumbo, a little black pug dressed as a devil and a great dane dressed as a horse with stirrups. His human baby brother was dressed as a cowboy.
Then we strutted our stuff. And at the end of things I had won 2nd place! First place *was* pretty hilarious – a French Maid costume. We posed for pictures and maybe I’ll even be on a few websites. My prize was a new leash and collar from Barker & Meowsky. It is very beautiful.
Then we got back in the car and drove to Auntie Pam’s house. Little did I know there were OTHER DOGS who lived with Auntie Pam. One fawn pug and one black pug, Bennie and Rugby. Plus some guy Ed also lives there who is very tall. But Ed was a Bears game so it was just me and these little pugs who were very grabby with Mommy’s attention. At least Auntie Pam paid me some attention but Mommy kept on picking them up and kissing them and cooing to them and letting them sit in her lap. Especially that little black one, Rubgy. Doesn’t every body know that is MY lap? I finally had to bark bark bark to let everyone know I was still around.
It was exhausting. As Auntie Pam says, “It’s A Hard Lindy Life”. On that note, back to my nap…
