Interpretations of "training"

Ok, so do you all remember when I came home from camp with that note about trainers??

Well, thanks to my mom freaking out, my dad had a different take on that one than I did.

He thought maybe they meant I need BEHAVIOR training, not HOLLYWOOD training.

He bought a spray bottle.

I hate it.

I am drenched lots of the time.

What is the opposite of WOWZA??

Dear animal lovers,

My dad loves me like more than anything in the world. Maybe even more than my mom. Really. So, trust me, that bottle is not hurting me any.

OK pups and pupettes.

Back to NO NO Friday.

Hope Friday the 13th went by without incident for everybody.

Anyhoo, another idea about when you get caught.

And we all know it's gonna happen sooner or later.

If possible, create a distraction when you get caught.

You're already busted, might as well go for it.

You know.

Pee by the back door or something.

Personal favorite.

While your people are cleaning up the mess, jump into your bed and assume the innocent position.

You know, the one we talked about last week.

Nose down, eyes up.

Who me??

Hopefully, by the time your people get back to you, your cuteness will overwhelm them and they'll forget what you did to anger them in the first place.

Shhhh ..... quiet.

I am sneaking in an e-mail while I am supposed to be taking time off and resting up for what is coming next.

If I type smaller maybe I won't get caught?

I wouldn't dare add a photo.

Today's NO NO FRIDAY is NEVER steal your mom's laptop and start blogging and returning e-mails when she has told you to "stand down."

I am HIGHLY CONFIDENT I'll be spending the weekend in the pup-house.

That is Sophie in that picture.

It's a BIG DAY here.

You see, this post is our ONE HUNDRETH POST here at the White Dog Blog.

This is about 99 posts more than Mom thought we were ever gonna see.

Pupcake, anyone??

In honor of the occasion, plus the fact that we have nearly perfect postance here at the White Dog Blog, Mom says we are gonna take a week off.


I think not.

Anyhow, if she wins, we'll be back on 25th.

If I win, you'll see us sooner.

Can't imagine you not hearing from me for a whole week!!!!!!

The yin and the yang of it

I live in California. I am a surfer kind of dog.

Laid back.

Easy going.

Except according to those Tiny Tots at camp, but that's another story.

I live in one of the greatest vacation destinations in the world.

But I think I want to move to Stockholm.

Or maybe Copenhagen.

I am pretty sure that is where Mom's friend Rebecca took that top picture.

How is that for POSTIVE.

Great looking dog.

Green means GO.

The point is made.

Dogs are WELCOME!!!

Not nearly as aggresive, hard core, or serious as the anti -dog way we put it here in the states.

Little D, heading to the passport office.

Shameless promotion


Those big dogs are killing me.

Well, not literally.

Geesh. Don't take my typing so literally.

Too tired to say much.

Thought you'd like to see where all the action takes place on Fridays.

Don't check it out though.

I am pretty sure they are full if you are a BIG DOG.

Yep, no room for more big dogs.

I got all I can handle.

Sign me,

Little D, Big Tired

P.S. Happy Birthday Aunt Jackie!!!!!!

Meet Jenny

You know, when you are a 13 pounder hanging with the BIG DOGS, you need someone to have your back. Allow me to introduce my back watcher, Jenny.

Jenny and my family go WAAAAYYYYYY back.

She watched out for my big brother Max too.

She's the best.

If you're in the Aliso Viejo area, you can find her here.

But don't look too hard, cuz I like having her all to myself!

Sign me,

Little D, somebody's got my back

Just say NO to NO NO FRIDAY when it's Friday THE THIRTEENTH.

People say crazy things can happen today, so here at the White Dog Blog, we are having GO GO FRIDAY instead.

I don't know if the whole "Friday the 13th" thing has any merit behind it, but since I hang with the big dogs, REALLY BIG DOGS, on Fridays, I am going to lay low and keep my nose to the ground today.

Suggesting you do the same, pups and pupettes.

Sign me,

Little D, laying low

Behind the scenes ...

Thought you might like to see a little of the "behind the scenes" action around here.

Oh, that Martha

images above from marthastewart.com and petsmart.com

That Martha is so smart ... she is using a WESTIE in some of her adds for her new line at PetSmart.

I can't believe I missed the casting call for this one.

Good Agents are hard to find MOM.


Can't you just imagine a handsome pup like moi starring in those ads?

You go here and buy some of her cool stuff for me. Anybody??

Sign me,

Little D, anybody know a good pup talent agent?

Editor's Note:

Dear Duncan,

I will spend the money to get you to Hollywood when you start minding your manners.

You MUST stop that nipping. Bad form.

Another thing about camp ...

Another GREAT thing that happened at camp on Friday.
Anybody have two legged brothers and sisters?
Know how they sometimes come home with a note pinned to their shirt or in their lunchbox and their mom gets all excited about it.
The equivalent to that at dog camp is coming home with a note stapled to your receipt.
MOM was SO mortified EXCITED.
Apparently, the camp counselors think that I have SO MUCH POTENTIAL as a Hollywood dog that they are suggesting trainers for me.
I might get training.
Mom was not so sure about the whole thing.
Dad said "We raise them wild around here."
Sign me,
Little D, gonna have a star in Hollywood one day

I got promoted!!!!!

Well hellooooo everybody. Happy Monday!!!!!

Guess what happened to moi on Friday?????

I got promoted to BIG DOG CAMP!!! I already knew I was a Big Dog on the inside and that Tiny Tots was NOT going to be right for me, but, you know, we just had to try it.

I lasted 30 minutes.

Then I was kicked out promoted to the BIG BOY area.


My GIANT personality served me well.

They LOVED me.

Listen up, pups and pupettes.

When caught doing something you have been told numerous times not to do, it is uber-important to immediately assume an innocent pose.

Lay your head lovingly on the object.

Give your parental unit (*) the classic "head down, eyes up" look of "who me?".

Channel the mantra "I am a good dog. I am a good dog. I am a good dog." to your loving parental unit.

Assume the innocent pose until the emotion associated with this pose settles in on your parent.

You know ... until you see the sides of the mouth turning up in a smile.

Ninety nine percent of the time (*) this response will garner a "you are soooo cute!!!" response within 90 seconds.
If you DO NOT get this response within the stated time frame, RUN!

Sign me,

Little D

(*) works best on mom-types, not so effective on dad-types.

More marketing genius ...

Oh. My. Goodness.
I've done it again.
I think.
Came up with another good one.
This marketing stuff makes me just about pee with excitement.
I'm trying hard to stop doing that. Unbecoming.
Really. It just comes to me.
You like??

Little D, perhaps if the Olympics don't work out, I'll go into marketing.

I passed, I passed!

Enough about looking all fancy, the big news is that I PASSED MY INTERVIEW.

I get to start going to camp now!

It was close.

I minded my manners as best I could.

But, still.

On the way out they said "He's really QUITE a dog."

Then dad said, guess that means he passed with a C+.


I'm in!!!!

Little D, gonna be homecoming King for sure!
