Outdoor Duty

Listen up all you people who want me to quit barking.

A dog's inherent duty is to guard it's people.

And when you can't get your head over the top of the 4 foot wall around your property (darn short little chicken legs), you resort to other options to letting people know you're on guard.

Such as barking.


Can't help it.

Yo ... define "dog."

To protect and serve, people.

To protect and serve.

Have you ever wondered?

What would it be like to have different hair?

I mean, Mom talks about it all the time.

She's religious about it.

Almost EVERY morning I hear her say "Oh, dear lord, give me more hair!"

I am pretty sure this is what I'd look like with curly hair.

Kinda like it, actually.

Allow me to indulge ....

If you will please ....

A little "before" and "after."

The difference, you may ask???

My head is now twice the size as my little puppy head, and I was WAY more willing to sit for posed photos back in the day!!!!

Every now and then I wonder ...

Last week we passed another milestone.

Sorry we forgot to mention it.

We posted our 250th post.


That is ALOT of posting, if I do say so myself.

Sometimes I forget why we started and then I remember that it's because I was SUCH A CUTE LITTLE WHIPPERSNAPPER WHEN I CAME ALONG!!!!!

As Summer Nears

This one is for all you Texas puppers out there ... as the heat goes up I just want to let you know that I tried it for myself and it really is true that if you stick your feet in the water bowl, you truly do cool off much faster.

Oh. And wear sunscreen.

Poor Mom

Pretty much FREAKED the old girl out.

You see, she could not find me anywhere yesterday.

Imagine the panic in mom's voice starting to rise about now as she starts saying
Duncan Duncan Duncan Duncan WHERE ARE YOU????

I mean, about right now you can imagine her thinking "Did he slip out between my legs when I went to get the mail?" and

At last, after calling in all the neighbors and my dad and every other pup-scent-seeking dog in the 'hood, I was found.

What can I say? I was tired and it was cool and quiet way back there under the bed.
Sign me,
D, as in doghouse

We interupt this blog ...

For a Public Service Announcement:

We rarely do this, but my mom and I were talking about all the pups and pupettes in Japan and we wanted to make sure they were being tended to along with their humans. So, we did what we usually do around here and we googled it.

That picture up there is from the World Vet's facebook page. Here is a link to the page. You should go there because if you do, you'll find a way to make a donation to help the pups in Japan if you're so inclined. We are off to Pet Days at the OC Marketplace this weekend. We are gonna donate some of our proceeds from the weekend to this group.

Makes you feel sad and lucky all at the same time, doesn't it?

Party On Puppers


It's the biggest party day of the year puppers.

Put on your green collar and hit the dog park.

Drink some green water.

Eat some green treats.

Eat the grass.

Dye your hair.

Today is the day to channel your inner leprican and jump and bark like the dog they always get mad at you for.

Mom can't gripe about it today 'cuz she's gonna be doing it too.

Woo hooooooooooooooooo.

Oh, and by the way, no peeing on lucky clovers today ... bad karma puppers.

Today you can sign me,

Lucky D

And here I was getting uber-excited thinking SPRING BREAK was all fun.
Turns out, there is this nasty thing called Spring Cleaning as well.
And mom decided (probably on that long drive home from the restaurant) that my toy box needed some cleaning out. I have no idea why she thought that:

Seriously, if one is good, three dozen is better, right??

Fortunately, I inherited a few toys from the Westie who came before me here, my brother Max. Even Martha Stewart a/k/a mom when she get's into clean up mode would not touch these:

Hey, a pup scout is always prepared ...

Now here is one Mom and I had quite the discussion about ... the RANDOM category. I say, if dad isn't missing it, there is no sense returning it. Of course, Miss Manners says that I should not have taken them in the first place therefore I must return these things.

What say YOU, puppers?????

Spring Break continues to be a blast puppers!!!

I got to try the whole "eating out" thing again. I even got a canine style "happy meal."

UNFORTUNATELY, once I had chowed my way through the happy meal, the excitement settled back in, the adrenaline rushed again, and I got a little beside myself.
Couldn't help it.
Barked at the other pups again.
I took on a Great Dane.
You know, those GIANT dogs.
Yep. Gave it my best shot.
Yelped and woofed and carried on like I was possessed.
And then we were outta there.
Real quick like.
Got a real talking too all the way home.
And we were a ways away from home, let me tell you.

Listen up pups and pupettes.

Don't show them all your tricks.

For instance, I figured out how to open the tape drawer.

Thought I was SO SMART.

Bu then my mama found out that I was up to no good again.

Caught me chewing the bounty of my efforts.

Busted, puppers.


My mom took matters into her own hands.

Used that tape I love to chew against me.

Yes, she did.

Taped the drawer shut.

On a side that I can't reach, no matter how hard I try.

And, oh, how I've tried.

Very distressing.

Don't show them all your tricks, puppers.

Don't show them all your tricks.

Self Portrait

To our valued customers,

We at The Puperie would like to extend our deepest apologies for any damage your packages may have had upon delivery.

In these tough economic times we are unable to afford trained professional staff for our shipping and receiving department.

As the old saying goes, good help is hard to find.

When we get busy around here, I get nervous.

When I get nervous, I chew.

And I LOVE me some cardboard boxes.

Always have.

Can't help myself.

So, again, please accept my apologies for the condition of your box.

Hey ... at least I'm no longer chewing on the actual merchandise, right?

Baby steps, puppers.

Baby steps!
