Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Does anypup other than me look over there to the right at the Iams dog bag and think - that Husky looks like it's had a touchup?

Just curious...

With You in Spirit at Work.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

BOL!!! Excuse me if I am still BOLing and can't stop the tears from leaking from my eyes. When Mom came home and told me this, I almost had dog water shoot out of my nose. I just want her to keep telling me this story all night long.

Mom says at her work they are implementing a new fancy computer system for the design department to help them make even better fancier clothes. When she first told me she was on the committee to not only review, but help pick and then implement and procedures and the system I was all WTW? Humans - really a fancy computer to design clothes??? Sure wouldn't see any dog thinking that was a necessity in life. Not to mention Mom doesn't design the clothes - she just buys them, but that's yawnville so lets move on.

Earlier this week they were working through all kinds of boring stuff that involved industry buzz words, talk about product cycles and then I pretty much looked out the window hoping there would be an EVIL NEMESIS SQUIRREL running by so I had an excuse not to pay attention. (Sadly not, but I faked hearing a car door slam - all was good).

I only really focused back in on the story when she said something about how she wanted the be known as QUEEN MISTY on the beta testing version. Someone must have been listening to her, because when she went to go beta test she found out her name was QUEEN MISTY, and her password was QUEEN MISTY!!!


The best part - she said they told her all of this with the entire group testing (some of which hadn't been there when she said it to begin with). She turned as red as my Kong toy as she explained to her co-workers it was just a joke. BOL, she then spent the rest of the day with her co-workers calling her QUEEN MISTY.

She finally gave up and left early, but knows it won't be forgotten.

Now doesn't that just make you BOL so hard you flop to your back and wiggle around while BOLing.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Mom said she wasn't in the mood to clean the house, so I am barktating this to her since I have her full attention. She had to help me with some of these since she is the one with all the 4H and dog show experience. BOL.

A if for Affenpinscher, we know one who lives to the north. Hi Jelly.

B is for Basset Hound, sadly Lucy the Dogster dog went to the rainbow bridge this week.

C is for Cairn Terrier, Toto star of The Wizard of Oz if you ask my opinion.

D is for Dandie Dinmont Terrier, we love how the announcer for Westminster says it when they enter the ring.

E is for English Setter, the only time their tails stop wagging is when they are on point.

F is for French Bulldog, we have a pup pal in Minnesota named Georgie.

G is for German Shorthaired Pointer, the dog Mom almost got for a show dog, but ended up with a Boxer instead. (to her defense it was a Jauquet Boxer from Rick Tomita and he breeds beautiful pups).

H is for Harrier, surprisingly not very hairy at all.

I is for Ibizan Hound, I think this could possibly be the esteemed Gahiji that Demon Flash Bandit is always writing about. (Might have been a Pharaoh Hound, but we already have plans for P.

J is for Japanese Chin, do you think it is hard to eat kibble when your chin hits the dish first?

K is for Keeshond, Mom says there was one in her 4H group.

L is for Lakeland Terrier, Bill Cosby breeds these characters.

M is for Mutt, the most popular breed in the world for good reasons.

N is for Neapolitan Mastiff, not to be confused with the ice cream.

O is for Otter Hound, do you think when they go in the water they swim on their backs?

P is for PAPILLON, I happen to be Queen of Papillonsylvania in case I haven't mentioned it before.

Q is for Queen Misty, I'm campaigning for this to be a national holiday. Long live the Queen and all that.

R is for Rhodesian Ridgeback, there is a very tall one who lives to us. His name is Booker.

S is for Saluki, the dog Mom's mom wanted her to get for 4H.

T is for Tibetan Terrier, a dog that lived at Mom's house when she was but a pup (Mom) and went on the dog show circuit for a summer.

U is for Unicorns and Rainbows, what Mom mutters under her breath every time we bark (she calls it her quiet spot).

V is for Visla, I think they come from some place called Visaland, not Mastercardland.

W is for Wire Fox Terrier, Am. CA. CH. Keri-luv's Double Trouble was Mom's when she was growing up. Being a typical Terrier, Mom and Trouble was never able to pass an obedience trial. Something about a battle of wills between human and Terrier.

X is for Xolotizcuintli, thank dog that breed was recognized. Now if they'd just find a Q, U and a Z dog to recognize.

Y is for Yorkshire Terrier, who even though small, will bite your leg off like a land shark if deserve it.

Z is for Zaidie, who throws the best end of summer Meatz (trademark thingy) pawty. (PS, we'd have used you for W, but Mom insisted on the childhood dog).

BOL! After all that, I need to take a little nap.

Dog Beds, Not Just for Sleeping in.

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Since I seem to have a theme for the week involving sleeping (could it be that it is fall?) I figured I continue along that vein.

We have the occasional dog bed strewn around the house. I believe Mom thinks she will actually have more room in her "dog" bed, but that only happens when Pepper gets really hot. So I thought I would share what else dog beds are good for.

1. Eating your SNACKS on them is a wonderful idea. The crumbs fall into the corners and you can then dig around later when you need to give Mom the pathetic I'm starving and need a SNACK bit. Don't forget the pathetic whine and starving dog eyes.

2. Sitting in the dog bed is much more comfy on the derriere than the plain ol' floor.

3. I like to hide my SNACKS under the dog beds and then sit a little to the side and growl at anypup approaching it. This works especially good when you use the one closest to the food dish. BOL.

4. Playing hide and seek with dog toys under the dog bed and then relocating the dog bed to other parts of the room while "finding" the toy you hid is always fun.

5. The one in the corner - that one is good for pooping in and no pup can take the blame. Hee hee.

6. Pepper's bed in the bedroom - I like to pee in that one when she has really made me mad. I'll do it right in front of her too! Grrrrrrrr Pepper, Grrrrrrr.

7. Cutter barfs in Pepper's bed, so that is another use.

8. The one under the kitchen table, that is the one I hang out in while I barktate what Mom needs to say in Dogster.

So there are some more uses for dog beds other than just sleeping in.

Sleeping Etiquette 101.

September 28th 2011 8:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

It has come to my attention that perhaps Mom needs a refresher course on Sleeping Etiquette. Do you know how it came to my attention? Over the last couple nights I've been kicked, rolled over on and nasty words have been directed my way.

Here are some basic rules of dog sleeping etiquette that I think we can all mark as a base.

1. Always take up as much of the pillow as you can.

2. When taking up pillow, if you snore - nose first toward Mom. If you toot or like to sprawl on your back - rear first toward Mom. I personally are sprawl and snore (never toot), but choose to lean rear toward human. After all, the fresh air is facing away from Mom.

3. Growl if Mom rolls over on you or nudges trying to get more room from you.

4. If you decide to move to another spot on the bed, never worry about walking right over Mom. After all she needed to turn over anyways to make room for your new spot.

5. When you take your midnight SNACK to bed, share the kibble leavings by making sure they are on the pillow. Also make sure you make as much noise if you eat it in the middle of the night. Crunch Crunch Crunch away.

6. Even if you dreamed you heard a noise - BARK! The rest will back you up. Mom yelling SHUT UP probably deters any further cat burglars. BOL.

7. Always insist you need water from the other water dish not the one in the room. You only want that when you are in the front room anyways.

8. Stretch out if you need to, who cares if a foot whacks Mom in the face - after all she gives us the poke when she feels like it.

9. If, such as Scooter, you need a lift up on the bed feel free to whine until Mom wakes up and helps you out.

10. Make sure to help "wake-i-tize" Mom by starting a good 2 hours before she really needs to wake up by insisting you need to go outside. Stay out there long enough so she can't just "go back to sleep". You know how she hates mornings, we're just trying to get her past that hump before she has to deal with actual people and not us dogs.

Well that's enough etiquette for tonight. I have to go mess up the bed in just the right way that it feels just right.

Sleeping Arrangements.

September 21st 2011 10:54 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

(First off, that slender furless model over there to the right of the page tonight posing as an ad, err, please cover up your bellah - after all we pups do)

**and now back to my rant**

Since I do have absolute supreme Queen Misty of All I Survey rule in the house 99% of the time, I do allow Mom to dictate what she calls the "bedroom", (known otherwise as my "domain").

Seems she thinks there is room for all of us if a certain one of us would stop grrring at every movement. As I looked around the room and reveled in all eyes gazing upon my Queenly rule, I was apawled to hear BOL's and even Mom joined in.

Excuse me if you do not grasp my royal Grrrrs are all about putting the nighttime domain into proper rank.

First off - I get the pillow above everyone else. Also the body pillow edge that is next to it so I can snuggle in and make sure I can sprawl out and sleep on my back.

Secondly - all other dogs must sleep way away from me and Mom.

Thirdly - except for Scooter - he can snuggle up next to us, but not too close.

Lastly - Cutter can sleep at the foot of Mom's feet, and I will allow Pepper to snuggle up and crawl under the covers on Mom's side of the bed. We all know she can only last a couple minutes before she explodes out from underneath overheated.

I would like to point out that the above mentioned "Secondly", "Thirdly", and "Lastly" are all only allowed on the bed due to my generous reign as Queen Misty.

Oh, Mom, did you really need room up here? I suppose you can have that spot right over there. See you have your own pillow, well that part my nose isn't resting on.

Move over?

Only because I didn't want to listen to you snore later Mom.

Doth Myne Ears Hear - Fall Weather?

September 19th 2011 8:52 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

Hey everypup ~Misty here~

Finally we got some nice sunshine and weather. A whole 2 weeks and then on Saturday we wake up and listen. Do you hear that? Is that rain we hear? Water dribbling off the roof?

Sunday we wake up and what do we hear? Sure enough lots of wind. The deck had to be swept many times that day, but we still brought Mom some leaves in on our tail hairs. We'd leave them strategically around the house for her to find when she walked through. It's a really fun game we play. Sometimes we just leave them in our fur until hours later and then make sure to take them to bed with us.

The sun was back today so who knows what tomorrow will bring. That sunshine is pretty nice to sit in in the late afternoon.

Scooter's L.A.Z.Y. Sunday.

September 14th 2011 8:07 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Hey Everypup ~Misty here~

See Scooter's entry for definition of LAZY .

Mind you this is not a complete list as I was busy on yard patrol. Making sure Pepper and Cutter didn't find my bone stash, keeping the household updated on what corner of the yard any suspicious noise was coming from. Hanging out making sure Mom painted the deck the correct way and to stay on track with her painting job. Dogster was her excuse all weekend long, and while I love Dogster as much as the next dog, sometimes housework must take priority.

So here starting at when I started paying attention at about 11:00 am PST for my brother Scooter. Mind everyone else has been up since about 8:30 am PST.

11:30 - Wakes up and yawn. Stretches.
11:35 - decides to go see what is going on outside because he seem to be the only dog left in bed.
11:36 - pees on morning wood tree.
11:36 - pees on edge of lawn chair that Cutter peed on earlier.
11:40 - privacy please and send him a magazine to read. Dog takes furEVAH.
11:43 - feeling much lighter Scooter goes on EVIL NEMESIS SQUIRREL PATROL.
11:43 - barks at imaginary EVIL NEMESIS SQUIRREL up in tree, thus inciting mass neighborhood barkfest.
11:52 - has final say with a last yip inside the house to neighborhood dogs as we have all been banished into the house for barking.
12:05 - 12:32 - aerial treetop security patrol from back of couch for more flying tree rats.
12:40 - moves to Scooter chair and makes himself comfortable. Flop onto back - sleeps.
1:30 - still sleeping.
2:30 - still sleeping.
2:45 - wakes up, yawns when Mom comes in through garage door. Moves back to couch and makes bed out of pillows.
2:46 - yawns again, licks lips twice. Yawns, licks lips twice.
2:47 - falls asleep.
2:50 - snore.
3:30 - still napping.
4:30 - Rolls over to side and stretches. Sighs.
4:31 - Stretches and yawns.
4:32 - Rolsl onto back and stretches out.
4:33 - grrrs at Misty when she jumps up on the couch arm.
4:45 - barks when the door to the garage opens from the wind, but do not bother to open my eye at all.
5:30 - Jumps to back of couch to resume EVIL NEMESIS SQUIRREL PATROL.
5:31 - ignores the invite to go outside from Mom.
5:58 - Moves back to chair and barks at nothing.
6:22 - finally joins all of us outside because he needs to pee. I didn't see him drink any water so I'm not sure where he got it at.
6:23 - gets distracted sniffing for a pee spot by spotting an actual EVIL NEMESIS SQUIRREL and lights off like a howling banshee. All dogs bring up the rear in support.
6:48 - plops down on grass belly side up and falls asleep. Dreams about bacon, cheese, hamburgers, SNACKS and turkey.
7:15 - begs for Mom's food by sitting up and looking cute. whines a bit in case she doesn't notice.
7:34 - jumps up on chair to watch the kitchen be cleaned up.
7:47 - begs for SNACK and gets one for all of us.
8:13 - eats food, drinks water.
8:22 - jumps on couch, falls asleep.
10:00 - bedtime - jumps off couch, walks down hall, gets picked up by Mom to bed and makes himself comfortable on his pillow.
10:00:36 - asleep.
10:05 - starts snoring.

That is a Sunday in Scooter's life. L.A.Z.Y..
