Elvis tagged me to play a really fun game. I am so excited, so here goes.

Check out Elvis #546451. He's just about the handsomest Newfie in the whole wide world! Hubba hubba! Elvis has got to be the most charming dog I have ever met, and oh so smart. Plus, our outfits match!

The game goes like this: I pick 3 of my favorite Dogsters (OOOH, that's so hard!) and send you a rosette or PM and tell you "WHY YOU ARE LOVED BY JOSIE" then those pups pick 3 and send them rosettes or PM and so on and so on. This is a great way to "pass on the slobbers" Whoof!

Canine Good Citizen at your service!

We drove 40 miles through heavy traffic and wrong-way streets to get to the Sirius Dog Festival where I should finally take my CGC. We have missed 4 testings so far, and we weren't about to miss this! Plus, it was fun.

We burned off steam for half an hour in a lovely Sand Point Magnuson Park off-leash bonanza, before the test. I was pooped, as per the Master Plan. Bwahaha.

We arrived late. And without money to pay. Nonetheless! Rhonda the official official would rather have me take this test than stick to schedules!

We camped out at a nearby gas station for a full 20 minutes. Some uncomfortable man offered to let us pay for his gasoline (with credit) to the sum of $27 and reimbursed us $22 (in cash). Money for the test-taking!

It was harrowing. I very nearly almost didn't get through the sit-stay when a person sneaked threateningly (I SWEAR, you could see it in her eyes!!) in the same area that my person whom I was SUPPOSED to be keeping an eye on went but told me to stay behind! But I stayed behind. I was in a perfect sit at the end of three minutes! (They'll never know the truth about the middle bit... bwaha.)

I sniffed the "other" dog. I was nonchalant about the noisy Coke can. I performed a PERFECT sit-stay-recall!

Then we hiked the park for 3 hours! BOOyah!

I am a Canine Good Citizen!


P.S. Levi didn't get to test. Nyah nyah.

I got tagged by Marley!

Here are the rules of the game!

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

1. The first time I had ever seen more water than a pool was when I was adopted at 2 years old! I went to the OCEAN! What a big first step! I was really concerned about the big gulls flying around and I didn't know what to do about the water attacking me! But that's okay, because my water dog blood kicked in right away and I was frog-leaping the surf in no time! I swam the waves like I had been born in water.

2. I once almost caught a coyote that had wandered down main street. I went a full mile before I decided to turn tale to home!

3. I once did catch a chicken. No really! It was all anyone could do to get it away from me, or me away from it. I ran and ran and ran with that chicken in my mouth. When they got it back from me, they let it get away scot free! Man, that was fun!

4. I eat carrots because of peer pressure.

5. I bark through the chain link fence, but otherwise the family says I'm purrrfect.

6. I can live with the fat cat now. Wow! He wanders in and out when I'm around, and I learned good things happen when I don't chase him. He's cool, I guess. I still love to chase strays, though!!

7. I was unknowingly named after Blink 182's song, Josie (by a fan). It's okay though, because I like the message. BOL. Thanks!

 

The Thorn In My Paw

Yesterday turned out some fantastic weather between the bouts of thunderstorms. It was even snowing by Mason's house! When we left Grandview something stuck me. There was a rusted thumb tack buried in my foot! It must have been underneath the billboard they have at the park.

All's well that ends well, however; my pad didn't bleed much, it must have been swelled for 20 minutes while I was sitting in the car. I didn't complain about it, but I'm sure my paws are going to be checked every time we quit into the Volkswagon from now on.

Hello my friends!

We were stuck indoors all morning because of the rain.
It doesn't bother me much, but for some reason I couldn't persuade anyone else to walk me. So in the afternoon we went out (with a human in a parka) and I ran and ran and ran and ran and ran. Man, I got wet. We went to Lake Fenwick Park so I wouldn't have to muck up the car, and also because it's best to swim in the rain! Everybody in the family agrees. We had a floating retrieving toy and I ran and jumped and chased and swam. The water was singing with raindrops. I had my backpack for the short walk, 'though I don't think only 40 oz. of water bottles is enough to weigh me down and burn my energy out. 'Though napping on the floor is feeling oh so good right now.
