How much longer till my walk?

Being patient is a virtue! A dog's lot is waiting on their humans. Wait for the walk, wait for the food, wait for the fun.
Humans have to have patience as well. Waiting is parting of life so just get over it and get on with life!

Laughter is the best Medicine!

Humans need to laugh more! Most humans live very stressful lives but laughing helps them cope.

When they laugh their faces relax, their blood pressure drops and they are better able to deal with the stresses that are part of their lives.

I allowed the lady to use one of my pictures to do this. I only allowed it hoping it would put a smile on someone's face and help them have a better day. I hope this makes you smile because frankly I think I look very doofy!

Bears Watching!

It bears watching. I sit a lot of the day and keep watch over my home. I do my job, at least I try.
This morning,while it was still dark out, I got to frantically barking but no one paid attention. I finally gave up , ate my breakfast and went about my business.

When the sun got over the mountain the humans were shocked. Look what happened to the bird feeder! The dasterdly bruin bent the pole over to the ground and tried to get the bird seed. Thanks to my barking he fled the scene but the damage was done. If only humans would listen to us!
My advice is to just do the best you can, at least I saved the feeders from being ripped into pieces!

Cyber Monday!

Today is supposed to be one of the busiest shopping times online. If you are out looking for gifts for friends and family members, you might want to check out Salty Dogs! You can click on the amazon button on the left and go directly to amazon to see the book!
My friends Seadra & Zoe have a great blog and in September they wrote all about my book! check their blog out!

Beware of Black Animals!

All that runs in the night might not be the black cat! I tore out the door, the lady saw something black running.


As I got closer to the cat, I found out it was a very black shunk!

Guess what, they stink! I was lucky not to get it in the face. Did you know that if a dog gets skunked underground it can be fatal? Check out this info at the terrierman's website.
I find it is always good to be informed, also I would highly recommend having some sort of deskunk spray at home in case you make the same mistake I did!

Take Pleasure in the small things!

Sometimes we need to take pleasure in the small things. It doesn't take much to please us dogs. Here the lady has wrapped up my tennis ball in a beach towel.

She insists on knotting it several times as if that might make it harder for me to extract the ball.

A couple of shakes later and I have it out. A couple of throws and she puts it back in the towel. It might not seem like much, but heck, we both get a kick out of this small thing.!

What the world needs now is a little more smile!
Smiling is good for the soul. If you are in a bad mood, read a joke, look out the window or think back to a time that made you smile.
No matter what, a smile can turn your day around.

Try to add joy to someone's life today, it will make you feel better too!

My lady can be quite modest, so I will have to brag for her.
She just found this incredible review of her book Salty Dogs! I liked the review because two of the pictures they picked to highlight were me!!

You are what you eat!

Remember when your Mom told you to eat your vegetables?

Well , she was right you are what you eat! While I happen to love carrots , not all dogs do, check out Mercedes my friend having her first taste of carrots!

Hummm, the lady gave to me so it must be edible and good?

Hey , wait a minute, this doesn't have any meat!

Just Doing your Job!!

Just put your nose to the grindstone, or in my case the earth!
Jobs make the world go around. A neccessary evil, or a blessing however you view your job, give it your best.

Finding your niche in life is important. From the previous post, you might figure out I am not a lapdog, I will tolerate hugs and kisses but I would much rather be doing a job

If you find a job you are passionate about, your whole life will be better.
As Aristole said, "Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work"

Tolerate Hugs and Squeezes!

Like most dogs, I like an occasional hug. I love my boy .

But sometimes he holds me just a little too long .I think humans have a BIG need for affection from us, so my advice is to tolerate the hugs and squeezes, they need them! With any luck, they will soon put you down and give you a big treat!
