My human decided to take a ball along on our walk this morning. I thought this was quite sweet as it gives her something to do while I chase pigeons around the park. But the silly thing kept dropping the ball and looking at me as if she wanted me to pick it up for her. To be kind I did the first few times, and she was very grateful. But I really wanted to focus on the pigeons – I even got close a few times – so I couldn’t be bothered to keep retrieving her ball. I mean she wanted to take it along so she should hold on to it. Right?
My humans spend a long time in the bathroom but will never let me in with them, so until recently I hadn’t a clue what they were up to. I have since discovered that they wash themselves with water as their tongues aren’t long enough to bathe themselves properly. I don’t understand the need for this extra washing as I make sure I give them thorough washes every morning when they wake up.
To add insult to injury, after getting thoroughly wet in the rain yesterday, I was in the middle of cleaning my paws when my male human encouraged me into the bathroom and proceeded to soak me with water (as if I wasn’t wet enough!) and scrub me with some smelly goo! I have to say I was not impressed. Even less so when after he’d finished his manhandling of me, he refused to let me go and play in the garden for fear that I might catch cold! I will have to be on my guard in the future.
I have to say though, that despite the indignity of it, my coat is extra soft and fluffy now.
I’m not allowed to watch a lot of TV as apparently it will make my eyes go square!! Worrying thought. But so far I’ve seen and enjoyed the following films, which I thought I’d share:
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn – I watched this with my humans recently and I really admire Snowy. After all, he’s the brains behind their pairing. I hope one day I can solve mysteries as well as he can.
Bolt – what a super dog! My humans tell me my super power is my ability (and willingness) to lick everything. Well its the only way to find out how things taste right?
Marley and Me – I wasn’t too sure about this at first. Its one of my female human’s favourite films though she cries everytime she sees it – surely a good film should make you happy?? But I loved the scene when Marley tries to get out of the moving car – classic!
Beethoven - Its a few years old now, and I gather some of the sequels aren’t up to scratch, but the first film was great fun. Truly proves that no family is complete without a furry companion
I’ve heard there’s a great actor in Anchorman called Baxter who can speak to his human – what an amazing feat! But my humans say I’m not old enough to see it as its rated 15
Just dropped in to say hellooooo!! Have a good evening all
My human was reading this article the other day, and seemed amazed at the idea that taking your dog to work improves morale, teamwork and job satisfaction as well as reducing stress levels. Well I could’ve told them that!! I mean who wouldn’t be chilled when your furry friend is there to lend a hand? I’d be a great help in my female human’s office. I could nip anyone not pulling their weight, entertain her colleagues when they’re bored, let them take me for walks when they’re stressed, eat their snacks if they are trying to diet and need to avoid temptation … Of course, it would have to be in exchange for regular bellyrubs and treats. That would only be fair.
Perhaps the government should issue a new law to make in compulsory for every workplace to have at least one dog to keep an eye on things. Thinking about it, I don’t know why no one has thought of this before! How on earth have those poor humans survived without us for so long??
Have to say, my humans have done well for once. Although I have many toys, none of them really hold my interest for long. Afterall, one squeaky toy is like another. But the other day they discovered this range of toys called High 2 Eye which are great fun. I now have this one which despite my rather rough treatment of it, is still amazingly in one piece.
I’m now hoping they pick up my hints and get me this one for Easter instead of a boring egg. Although if they want to get me one of those too, then of course I won’t complain!
