My Bone Trail

Ok, first things first. I apologize for not posting in so long. I was very busy, and my typer-human-sister was also busy. She "didn't have enough time". Booo! Anyhow, I know I have written about bones before, but I got these new pictures and I figured I have to write something about them, so here goes: My Personal Bone Stations. Great idea, isn't it?!?!?! Well, I made it happen. You see, throughout the winter I saw dead deer. I just ate away at the skin and hair (it's still not off my tongue) and presto, what is underneath?!?! BONES! I have my own, personally run, personally owned BONE TRAIL. I have bones all over our trail. I guess to humans it must look kind-of creepy. Walking along and finding a leg or an arm....oops, deer don't have arms. Lets just leave it at legs. Anyway, my sister saw one, and she had a murder story going in her head, until she realized the culprit was me (isn't that cool?!?! I'm a dog, culprit, garbage lover, and good-looking, all at the same time!! That is what I call multitasking. Or maybe multi-being. What I mean is, I am very skilled.) I have bones everywhere. I can stop for a snack whenever I want! And, of course, it's free, although if you want to come you might have to trade me stuff. Pig ears, dog bones, the usual (don't worry, Boomer, I don't mean you!). So anyway, come whenever! (my pig ear stock is getting low) Have a great day, everyone! And look out for the next post, on fashion of a German Shepherd, Airedale Terrier Mixed Dog ( I am very good at inventing cool titles...can you tell?) Tootles!

I love rolling. Humans think it looks funny, but it really is a very serious act. Even the horse does it, and we know the horse thinks she is so cool, so if she does it, it MUST be cool. I roll when I feel good. It itches my back. It is also a good idea to do when you roll it stuff that smells good. Well, the stuff I roll in normally doesn't smell so good to the humans, to the point where they have to give me a bath, but oh well. I do it anyway. Anyhow, I roll in clean grass, too. These pictures are of the three stages of The Roll. Step one: lie down on your side. Step two: using a swinging motion roll onto your back. Step three: the finish, lay down on the opposite side that you started on. See? It's a very complicated process. VERY complicated. I wish more humans took it seriously, but I suppose you have to pity humans, with their puny sized brains. Anyhow, I have to go. Happy rolling!

Happy Birthday, Mommy!

I just wanted to wish my favorite Mommy a very Happy Birthday today! I love you very much mom. (I must say, though, it's a tie between her and Boomer )

I wonder how the 'Birthday' came about. Hmm, does it have anything to do with the day we are born being the day we are born? "Birth" day? I don't know. Anyhow, whoever made it up was pretty smart. I look forward to my Birthday every year! No that much happens. I get extra treats, but that's about it. Oh well, I still find it to be important. That is the day I remember my puppy years.....oops, my memory doesn't go that long. My bad. Well, I remember as far back as I can. Yesterday, or so......Anyhow, I just wanted to say Happy Birthday! Have a good day!

Garbage Pile-Mmm, Mmm, Good!

OMG!!! Garbage is SO good! I only just found it. I don't know what it's really called, but it looks like a pile of garbage to me, so....The humans threw all this yummy food here! Just for me! They love me so much! It's like a gold mine of good food! It has the whole works: Banana peels, egg shells, apple cores, ashes from the campfire, used hamster shavings, corn husks, and stuff I don't even recognize!! I think there may even have been some horse doo-doo along the way, which is always good. I can't believe the humans didn't eat all that stuff!?!?!?! I mean, it's so good! I now go out every day and have myself a feast, which is making a permanent dirt clump on my chin, but I figure you have to suffer for the good stuff. I just love it SOOOOO much!! It's just so awesome. And the best part is, they add new stuff everyday!! I get more EVERYDAY! We don't need chickens!! We have the stuff all right here..... unless the chickens are the main course, and this is the side. That's even better. We could throw a party! I have the refreshments!! I'll have my dad cut some of the trees around it (and maybe some chicken heads, too! (-: ), so we can dig in! It'll be great. I'll start planning. Hmm, this month, next month? I'll think about it. In the meantime, have a good day!
