This is a (not very good picture) of Duncan last night. He'll tell you all about it on Monday, but from a parental perspective ... CAMP WORKED ... he was EXHAUSTED when he got home.

We entertained friends on the patio and he came out and said hello and then HE LEFT THEM ALONE!!!!!


As The Great One himself would say ...

Oh boy everybody.

Duncan's Mom here.

Duncan can't write today because HE IS AT SCHOOL.

That's right.

Little D has gone off to dog camp today.

For the first time.

Did we ever tell you that his older brother got kicked out of the first dog camp he went to??

This would be why I am sitting here with an upset stomach.

Praying that my dog does not get kicked out of camp.

Rambunctious? YES

A bit of a playful snapper? YES

If there is doggie karma, Duncan will get to stay in camp.

Cuz despite it all, Little D is one of the sweetest pups you'll ever meet :)

(And because we did alot of earnest NO NO training in the car on the way over there!!!!!!)

I need a lawyer

Anybody out there know a good pup-protector?

Anybody friendly with a Judge, by any chance?

Anybody familiar with canine contracts?

'Cuz I am pretty sure I've been had.

See that rag up there?

I thought it was GREAT that they let me play with it.

For a while Mom and Dad played too, eventually leaving me to go it alone.

Then it dawned on me I was mopping the floors.


I am pretty sure tricking me into doing that is illegal.


Sign me,

Little D, anybody know Robert Shapiro's number?

Oh, howl.

Well drat darn diggity and to howl with it all!

Best laid plans.

Darn paws on the keyboard.

Today's post posted as a second post yesterday.

Without the really cute photo of the dog surfing with the caption "insert photo of cuter white dog here."

It was gonna be great.



Circle around a bit.

Nose down.

Eyes up.

Looking at all my blog readers with "that look."

What can I say?

Some days are just like that.

Sign me,

Little D, better luck tomorrow.

If the Olympics don't work out ...

then I might try surfing.

I do, after all, live in California.

Check out this cool event my friend Alison just told me about.

Surf's up pups and pupettes.

Little D, big Dude

I crack myself up

So Mom and I are working on a new project.

You know.

We're looking for one that might actually make a little money.

Dad insists.

Wait for it ....

Wait for it ....

We're gonna create some dog stuff and sell it at a Pet Expo coming up in October.

Cool, yes???

So, off Mom and I go to our own corners to come up with ideas.

I came up with this one ...

A notepad in that size everybody uses for their grocery list that says GO FETCH.

Get it?

OMG, I am totally fabulous at this marketing and design stuff.

Holy Cow Batdog

Holy Cow, Batdog.

What a week we had last week.

We were slammed.

But you could probably tell that because I was not my usual pithy self, right??



Can you believe how messy Mom's office was???? Those of you who know her well know what kind of week that mess created for me and dad.

You know that feeling you get right before you get a shot??


Not to worry people, my paws are back on the keyboard and this is gonna be a GREAT week!

You know you're growing up when ...

you are so well behaved for a whole week that you have no wisdom to impart to your fellow pup and pupettes on NO NO Friday.


Editor's Note:

Mom here ... that is SO not the case, but Little D has had a long week so we are going to let him run with it!

You know you're growing up when ....

they take you to get "fixed" and you come home wearing the "cone of shame."

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

You know you're growing up when ...

you have to update your profile picture on your blog because people no longer recognize you from your puppy pic.

Psst .... I updated my profile too ... check it out!

You can jump into your toy basket and root out exactly the toy you're looking for!

Judging from the reaction I got, this one is one to pay attention to pups. This one comes to you from last weekend as well. We went to the OC Great Park for a family event. There were planes, there was food and there were kids.
There were lots and lots of kids.
In strollers. Or, in my case, down on my level.
Are you starting to see where this is going??


Bad form.

Apparently, VERY BAD form.

Mom was mortified. Again.

Dad thought it was kind of funny.

Insert smirk here.

Both looked straight ahead so as not to confirm there was a Mom behind us looking for Gerber Baby's binkie.

You could tell from the looks on their faces they were thinking "Does our dog really have a pacifier in his mouth??"


I thought it was kind of great, actually.

Smooth move of the highest order.

A walk in the park

Back to the good parts of the weekend ...

Turns out there is this great park just a few miles from our house. It has ducks, and trains, and fountains.

Oh, my.

There was so much to see.

I was so excited.

Ahhh, the sniffing.

Ughh, the "modeling" for Mom.


Conked out.

Couldn't walk another step.

Thank heavens for dad's strong shoulders!

Where's Duncan???

Not Pictured: Duncan

Because he was barking so much on the patio that we got our food to go and left.

Yep. One of the most dog friendly places around and Little D was making so much noise we had to leave.

Hard to do in a place like that.


All the other well mannered dogs just turned their heads and ignored us.

Some dog parents glared at us.

Talk of bark collars.

Talk of surrendering maniacly barking cute white dog to a shelter.

That much barking going on .

Happy Half-Birthday to Me!!!

Well Good Morning Everybody! Six months ago to the day, I arrived. Wow. WHAT A RIDE SO FAR!!!!!

Can you believe I was ever such a tiny tot??? Mom is not sure which of these pups is me, but we're guessing I am that top one up there 'cuz I like to lay with my head on mom's leg like that but also because that one was a little squeaker. We'll get back to talking about my fantastic weekend tomorrow, but let's just say there was some squeaking involved, and it did NOT go over well with my mom and dad!

Sign me,

Little D, hoping for a pupcake and some presents today!!

It results in a soggy situation.

You give me too much credit ...

You didn't really expect a NO NO FRIDAY today did you?

Flying solo and hanging out my own dirty laundry????

I think not.

OK, that, and did you really think I could really figure out how to (1) take a picture, (2) get that frame with the background on it (there's colored backgrounds and angles involved there, you know), (3) add text and (4) add it to the blog? THAT would have resulted in a "paws on the keyboard" comment and we all know I have been banned from using that particular phrase this week.

So, without any further sniffing around, allow me to introduce my 4th of July series ... the pictures are not all that great, but don't judge me people, until you have walked in my paws. When was the last time YOU tried to take a picture of yourself on a disposable camera while at the same time trying to put some cheap party hat on your head???????

With no disrespect intended at all, you will see that I had my own blonde moment at the end and started chewing on the hat. That what nerves will do to a pup people ... we just start chewing.

Happy Fourth of July Everybody!
