In Need of a Royal Dog Band Name

September 23rd 2012 5:37 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ]

Hey everypup ~Queen Misty here~

I believe my court is in need of a Royal Dog Band and I need a name for it. Never mind that Mom does not agree that our baying, whining and barking is not in tune with any sort of thing humans call music. After all if your ears had to put up with the iTouch Mom has blasting out of the noise box while jiggling and wiggling - well you'd demand your own musical selections.

I have been kicking around these ideas for the Royal Dog Band name, but haven't settled on a single one yet. Open to suggestions as well.

Lead Barker of course is moi - Queen Misty
On the barkaphones we have Mr. Cutter.
Backing yodelers are Scooter and Pepper.

Possible band names in no order or preference. Just how I pulled them out of the couch corners on notes I'd been keeping.

**Twisted Whiskers
**The Dogbirds
**Bark Supply
**The Who-ofers
**Barkman-Turner Overdrive
**Four Paw Nails
**Black Labs
**Modest Dawg
**peE Street Band
**MatchBoxer Twenty
**The Barking Stones (or The Whining Stones)
**Lab Zeppelin

So let me know what my Royal Subject have to bark out. Suggestions on alternative Royal Dog Band names are welcome indeed.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

We're not quite to checking our list for the first time yet alone the "twice" time.

We have some fun Howlidays upcoming. We like the trick-or-treat ones where we join MzLouann & Booger & the Youngster for a WALK around the neighborhood.

Good Smells and Eating Day (Thanksgiving) is a snifforama that should be shared with all.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Can you believe how rude some human owners can be? I'm laying in my Queen Bed and a human to be named, MOM, poked me awake.

Not only do I not Snore, but poking me awake is rude!

Rude, rude, rude human!

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Honored once again with the DDP today. As you can see I am at the very bottom, supporting all those above me BOL. As Mom says you can't look a gift horse in the mouth. Good thing she doesn't say that about looking a gift dog in the mouth because I have looked at Cutter and Pepper's inside mouth when they are yawning, and I'd send them back. I just don't see the use those 2 have, really.

Thank you Zoe for the Frosty Drink you left me, but I must tell you that Mom was so hot and sweaty from the drive home (TMI? BOL)that she sucked that down as soon as she walked in the door. I didn't even have time to tell you sent it with 2 kitty chasers - wasn't she surprised BOL.

Thanks Hershey & Winkie sent me a pink ribbon, which are all the gift giving rage because Anya sent one to me as well. Thank you Anya. I am wearing one for each ear and I do look stunning.

Cleo from way cross the 'Lantic sent a Gold Star for my collection above the fireplace. Thanks Cleo I'll leave it up there furever.

I'm off to get an extra SNACK and sit out in the backyard in the sunshine.

Mathematics, Arithmetic, Sales Meetings and Such.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

This whole week Mom has been coming home late. Not only that, but it pretty much goes like this...

*Mom walks in, lets us out, gives us scratches, starts up the ol' laptop, goes out to the car and brings in a stack of papers.

We get SNACKS.

*She plops down at the table and pulls out this small square device and starts tapping away at it.

*Then a yellow stick; sharp on one end, dull and red on the other is pulled out and the sharp side is used.

*Then the sharp side is shoved up over her ear and she just lets it stick there through her hair like she doesn't have a care in the world that it is there. Would annoy the .... out of me, so I tell her.

We get another SNACK.

*More tapping on the small square box, and Mom reaches up and grabs the yellow stick, uses the sharp parts a couple times, taps at the small box, and then turns the yellow stick over and uses the dull red part and rubs at some papers. Then she brushes the paper off and stuff falls on the floor. We all rush over thinking CHIPS, but what is down there just kind of stinks.

Ha Ha - sorry Mom, those were your feet. We were just checking. BOL

More of all the above for every night, all week.

Then she started coming home later and later every night. Still coming home telling us she was "cramming" for some "sales meeting". Oh, yeah, we get this about 3 times a year, but do we believe it? Of course not.

Neither do we believe it's all so we can "have a roof over our head". After all, that's what we hear when she goes to "work". Or as to hear Mom tell it, "get away from us". Ok, I put those words in her mouth, but only because I feel I know her so well I should be able to speak/bark for her myself.

Now she comes home the latest of all nights and tells us she still has 2 more days worth of work. I know Mom days last way longer than a dog day does (well unless it's the summer, oh wait it is), but I watched while she tapped away at that small square box, and that means one of our lazing around days with Mom will be taken away because of a "sales meeting".

I suggested a two for one deal of Pepper and Cutter, but Mom told me to hush myself. Of course I had a few extra last words for her before I headed off to bed.

Escape from Momcatraz.

July 2nd 2012 9:15 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

This is our tale of escaping from Momcatraz this weekend. Sure, we have all been recaptured and spent time in solitary confinement with only dry dog food and water. The water, ackkkk, filtered. The food, ackkkk, dry and expensive.

Ms K stayed over on Friday night because puzzlefest and some champagne was had. I think more champagne was had but I was in bed so I can't really vouch for that. Oh, Mom says she can so yes, more champagne was had. Mom got out the magic automatic shamma-lamma blow up bed for Ms K to sleep on and she fell fast asleep.

We sorta of forgot that Ms K was still here in the morning and all 4 of us ran out headed for the backyard but then saw Ms K sleeping on the magic automatic shamma-lamma blow up bed and headed over to give morning kisses. Who knew Ms K did not appreciate dog kisses in the morning. Mom says she doesn't like them either, but really, who can fully trust a person that doesn't like morning dog kisses? Even if it is your own Mom.

After Ms K decided going home to peace and quiet was more appealing than magic automatic shamma-lamma blow up bed, Mom decided to make some breakfast. So she started some bacon on the stove, pulled out some eggs and brought out the toaster. All was good until she dropped the bread into the toaster and walked out to water the window boxes out back.

Mom says she lost track of time. I pawsonally think she was out taking a nap because I saw her laying on the deck bench. I will testify to that if it comes to it.

Then a terrible racket started shrieking in the house and Mom ripped open the back door and some very bad words came out of her mouth. She took the toaster that had black smoke belching and took it out to the backyard. Then all the windows were opened and the shrieking kept going and going. Then another shrieking at the end of the hall started to support the original shrieking.

Then Mom opened the front garage door and the front door forgetting the alarm was still set for the front door. Then louder angrier shrieking and very bad language flowed verbosely. The alarm had to be turned off. Once that goes off, Mom has to answer the phone and that is when we took advantage of her distraction.

We snuck out the garage door and headed out to take over the neighborhood. Scooter and I one way, Pepper and Cutter another. We wandered and sniffed peed and probably pooped without having Mom clean it up. We were free and sniffing and sniffing and sometimes barking.

Mom didn't know any of this because she was on the phone with the alarm company explaining that the door alarm and smoke alarm were all her fault because she can't even make toast. BOL. She had to answer all kinds of questions while she was walking around trying to turn on vents and open windows to make the smoke haze at waist level move a little faster.
Right when she was at her wits end with all the questions about are you sure you are ok, what is your password, what is your address, why did both alarms go off at the same time, and even more stuff she heard Scooter giving us away.

Sure enough he was outside too lazy to go any further from his comfy pillows and couch spot and wanted Mom to let him back in the garage door. Then Mom did a head count (much easier than a paw count fur sure) and came up 3 heads short (not including hers, cuz obviously her head wasn't on to begin with to start the day off).

She cut it short with the alarm company assuring them she wasn't being assaulted, hadn't fallen, house not on fire and headed out with 3 leashes and SNACKS. The first to fall was Cutter because he's really too scared to go very far from the house. He was walked back to the house and left with Scooter.

Pepper was next at the bottom of the hill sniffing around and finally cornered in a neighbors yard. Snapped onto the leash and they both came hunting for me. I was around the corner just strolling along on my normal WALK path. Once Mom spotted me and yelled "Leash" I headed back because that is my key word for going on a WALK.

Then we headed back up to the house where the shrieking noises had stopped finally, but was still very smokey and burned smelling.

Mom lit a bunch of smelly things in glass jars called candles and decided to clean the house since she was up and there was no way she was going to go back to sleep. Something about sweating the champagne out and working through the pain. Either way, all us pups headed back to bed for a mid morning nap.

And that's how we made our escape from Momcatraz.

Queen of All I Survey!

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Oh yes, I am the Queen of All I Survey! Mom took Me, the Royal Me out in the front yard with her. I was on my extra long leash and I choose not to discuss the huge rock at end of it. Let's just call it my "albatross".

Mom did that stuff I just don't understand where a bucket is out there and gets filled up with perfectly good greenery she calls weeds. She says she does it so the flowers can grow. *Disclaimer - those of you pups with a weak stomach may want to skip through the rest of this paragraph*. I'm not sure she's doing the flowers much good because she goes out there all the time and cuts them down, brings them in the house and makes "arrangements", takes them to work, gives them away to friends to who knows what demise they meet.

I was out there with Mom the whole time while the OTHERS and Scooter had to watch from the front window. Ok, Scooter didn't really care after he decided watching me lay on the grass was boring and decided to take a nap, but the point is....I am the Queen of All I Survey and Mom's favorite.

What Mom? NO, you don't need to read this at all, pawing send right now.


Ho Hum

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Haven't had much to bark about (well the stuff going on outside in the yard doesn't count) lately. It's been pretty Ho Hum around here. Until last Monday it had not rained in 2 weeks in Seattle, which I think must be up there in the record books. Sun was out, human eyeballs were all squinty (fact - more sunglasses are sold in western Washington than any other state - we lose our sunglasses every year), flowers started popping out of the ground, lots of panting happened from the heat (dog and humans) and then Monday.

Monday through today so far has made up for the lack of rain the previous 2 weeks. Delicate flowers are flopped over giving up their will to live under the pounding rain. The Rhododendrons bloomed early in the sunshine and are swamped. Snowball tree is hunched over giving you great access to grab one. Do so wisely because they are loaded with water and if you just snag one off the tree incorrectly, the branch will just swing back up and dump water all over you. If you do it right, certain dogs can get an unexpected flower waterball surprise thrown at them. Let's just not ask how I know ok.

Scooter's in trouble right now because he can't keep his Barkmouth shut. Every time Mom tells him not to bark, he just looks at her and barks again. I'm fairly certain I may have to jump on her at the last minute to distract her from "wringing his neck".

Meanwhile I'm off to see if I can make him bark again. BOL.
