VACATION AT DOGGY DISNEYLAND

THIS IS ME ON THE PORCH WHERE I CAN SEE EVERYTHING.

I AM AT DOGGY DISNEYLAND TODAY WHICH IS AUNTIE ARI’S MUMMY’S HOUSE AND I HAVE BEEN HERE SINCE FRIDAY AND MOSTLY IT HAS BEEN AWESOME. I WAS AT DAYCARE ON FRIDAY SO I WAS ALREADY REALLY REALLY TIRED BUT THEN I GOT HERE AND GINNY WAS HERE AND I WASN’T TIRED ANYMORE SO WE RAN AROUND IN THE YARD IN LOTS AND LOTS OF CIRCLES UNTIL I ALMOST FELL IN THE POND SO WE STOPPED. MUMMY DIDN’T COME SO GEORGIE IS SAD BUT I THINK SHE WILL BE OKAY.

GEORGIE

THIS IS GEORGIE WHOSE NAME IS ACTUALLY GEORGINA.

ME AND GEORGIE

THIS IS ME AND GEORGIE. I LIKE HER BECAUSE SHE IS SMALL.

I HAVE A VERY FAVOURITE CHAIR AT DOGGY DISNEYLAND WHICH IS THIS ONE:

IN THE PEKOE CHAIR

THIS IS MY VERY FAVOURITE CHAIR. IT FITS EXACTLY ONE PEKOE.

AND I LIKE TO CURL UP IN IT AND SLEEP. I WISH IT COULD LIVE WITH US BUT AUNTIE ARI SAYS THAT HER MUMMY WOULD MISS IT IF IT WAS GONE AND ALSO SO WOULD MINCHA, WHO IS MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD AND I DON’T WANT HER TO BE SAD SO I WILL LIVE WITHOUT THE CHAIR.

MY FAVOURITE OTHER DOG

THIS IS AUNTIE ARI'S DOG MINCHA. SHE IS MY BEST FRIEND AND I WANT TO BE JUST LIKE HER WHEN I GROW UP.

YESTERDAY AUNTIE ARI MADE CUPCAKES WITH CHEESECAKE IN THE MIDDLE AND I SUPERVISED TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WENT OKAY BUT SHE STILL DIDN’T LET ME HAVE ONE WHICH I DIDN’T THINK WAS FAIR. THEN SHE MADE DINNER FOR EVERYONE BUT SHE DIDN’T LET ME HAVE ANY ROAST POTATOES OR FRIED TOMATOES OR ANYTHING WHICH I DIDN’T THINK WAS FAIR EITHER.

SO THIS MORNING I ATE ONE OF HER SHOES. I DON’T KNOW WHY SHE LIKED THEM ANYWAY. MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI KEEP TELLING ME THEY NEED SHOES TO PROTECT THEIR FEETS BECAUSE THEY ARE SOFT AND NOT TOUGH LIKE MY FEETS BUT THEN THEY PUT ON SHOES THAT DON’T HAVE ANY TOPS. IT WAS FOR HER OWN GOOD.

OOPS?

THESE WERE AUNTIE ARI'S SHOES BUT I EATED THEM.

PSEUDO-GRANDMA CAUGHT ME WITH THE SHOE THOUGH AND SHE TOLD ME I WAS BAD SO I RAN AWAY AND HID BEHIND THE KITCHEN DOOR UNTIL AUNTIE ARI GOT UP. I FORGOT I HAD EATEN HER SHOE SO I WENT TO SAY GOOD MORNING BUT THEN I REMEMBERED I HAD EATEN IT SO I RAN AWAY AGAIN EVEN THOUGH SHE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT I’D DONE.

THEN PSEUDO-GRANDMA RATTED ME OUT AND AUNTIE ARI WAS MAD. NOW SHE ISN’T TALKING TO ME AND I AM VERY SAD.

ALSO THIS MORNING GINNY HAD TO GET BRUSHED BECAUSE SHE IS CURLY AND GETS TANGLES. SHE GOT PUT UP ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER AND I LAUGHED AT HER AND SHE SAID SHE WAS GOING TO EAT MY FACE BUT PSEUDO-GRANDMA HAD HER SO SHE COULDN’T GET ME.

GINNY HATES BRUSHING.

I TOLD HER MAYBE SHE SHOULDN'T BE SO WHITE AND CURLY THEN.

LATER I WILL HAVE TO GO HOME TO WHERE THERE IS NO MINCHA AND NO GINNY AND NO GEORGIE AND NO SHEBA AND I AM THE ONLY DOG BUT I THINK IT WILL BE OKAY BECAUSE I AM VERY VERY TIRED AND IT IS HARD TO NAP HERE WITH SO MANY FUN THINGS TO DO.

DOGGY TRIUMPH!

SO LAST NIGHT WAS MY LAST DAY OF SCHOOL IN DOGGY GRADE ONE, AND WE HAD A TEST THAT MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI WERE REALLY NERVOUS ABOUT BECAUSE IT WAS A FINAL EXAM AND I HAD TO DO ALL MY TRICKS TOGETHER FOR THE MEAN TRAINER LADY WHO DOESN’T LIKE ME. ALSO I HAD TO GO LAST AND THE MEAN TRAINER LADY MADE ME SIT BY MYSELF BEHIND THE GATE BECAUSE I’M DISRUPTIVE OR SOMETHING AND I WAS VERY SAD THE WHOLE TIME.

BUT THEN IT WAS MY TURN AND I DID HEEL AND SIT AND DOWN AND STAY AND COME AND FINISH WHICH IS SILLY BUT I DID PERFECT AND EVERYBODY CLAPPED!

I GOT A PERFECT SCORE BECAUSE I AM PERFECT.

AND THEN I FOUND OUT THAT I DID THE BEST IN THE WHOLE CLASS AND GOT A PERFECT SCORE BECAUSE I AM THE BEST EVER DOG EVER, AND THEN MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI TOLD ME I WAS  A GOOD GIRL FOR HOURS AND HOURS AFTERWARDS EVEN THOUGH YESTERDAY AFTERNOON I GOT LONELY AND ATE A COUCH CUSHION AND AUNTIE ARI WAS REALLYREALLY MAD.

BUT NOW I AM A GOOD DOG OFFICIALLY AND I HAVE A PIECE OF PAPER THAT SAYS WITH MATH THAT I AM PERFECT.

PEKOE WINS!

AND TODAY I AM VERVERY TIRED BECAUSE OF BEING SO GOOD LAST NIGHT, SO I THINK I WILL HAVE A DAY-LONG NAP AND CATCH UP.

BEING GOOD IS SO HARD.

PEKOE SHARES NAPPING WISDOM

OKAY SO TODAY I AM GOING TO TALK ABOUT NAPS BECAUSE I AM A NAP EXPERT. ALSO I WENT TO THE PARK TODAY AND AM VERY TIRED AND AM GOING TO TAKE ONE SOON.

SOMETIMES I BORROW AUNTIE ARI'S BEAR. SHE DOESN'T MIND.

THERE ARE LOTS OF KINDS OF NAPS. THERE ARE REALLY SHORT ONES THAT PEOPLE CALL CATNAPS BUT THAT’S A THING THAT HAS THE WRONG NAME THAT I CAN’T PRONOUNCE.

THIS KIND OF NAP I DO WHEN I AM TRYING TO BE SNEAKY AND CONVINCE MUMMY I’M A GOOD DOG AFTER I’VE DONE SOMETHING THAT MAKES HER YELL. I USUALLY TAKE THEM LYING VERYVERY FLAT ON THE FLOOR LIKE I’VE GONE SPLAT AND AUNTIE ARI CALLS ME A MARTIAN FLAT DOG WHICH IS APPARENTLY FUNNY.

THERE ARE ALSO ATTENTION NAPS WHICH ARE THE ONES I TAKE WHEN EVERYBODY IS LOOKING AT ME. I USUALLY TAKE ATTENTION NAPS BY LYING VERY STILL UNTIL I AM SLEEPY AND THEN ROLLING AROUND ON MY BACK UNTIL I AM COMFORTABLE. THEN I FALL ASLEEP WITH MY LEGS ALL IN THE AIR AND MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI WAKE ME UP LAUGHING WHICH IS MEAN BUT THEN I GET PETTED SO THAT’S ALL RIGHT.

SEE MY FLAILING TECHNIQUE

SOMETIMES I ALSO TAKE ATTENTION NAPS WITH MY CHIN ON THE ARM OF THE PEKOE-COUCH SO THAT I CAN OPEN MY EYES AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE AND DEFEND THE HOMESTEAD FROM NINJAS.

MY VERY LONGEST NAPS I TAKE WHILE MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI ARE AT SCHOOL AND WORK AND STUFF. I CURL UP IN A TINY BALL ON THE COUCH AND I SLEEP REALLY REALLY WELL AND THE DAY GOES BY REALLY FAST.

I NEED TO CONSERVE ENERGY FOR THE NAP HOME STRETCH.

SOMETIMES I SLEEP SO GOOD THAT I DON’T HEAR MUMMY OR AUNTIE ARI COME HOME AND I CAN’T GO AND WAG AT THE DOOR LIKE I’M SUPPOSED TO AND AUNTIE ARI SAYS “What if I’d been a burglar?” AND MUMMY SAYS “Good job protecting us from ninjas” WHICH IS SILLY BECAUSE IF THERE WERE NINJAS I AM SURE I WOULD WAKE UP.

THIS NAP IS A MIX OF ATTENTION NAP AND ALSO LONG NAP.

BUT IT’S OKAY BECAUSE THEN WHEN THE PEOPLE COME HOME I’M ALL RESTED AND HAVE LOTS OF ENERGY TO DANCE AND JUMP AND PLAY AND ASK TO PLAY AND SIT NEXT TO MUMMY WHILE SHE’S TRYING TO DO HOMEWORK AND PUT MY CHIN ON HER LAP AND CRY AND GRUMBLE UNTIL SHE TELLS ME TO GO TAKE A NAP EVEN THOUGH I JUST HAD ONE.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE DOING WITH THE GLOWY BOX. I MUST BE MORE INTERESTING.

NAPS ARE A GREAT INVENTION BECAUSE YOU GET TO BE COMFY AND YOU GET TO SLEEP, WHICH IS ALWAYS GOOD. MAYBE SOME DAY I CAN TEACH GINNY IF SHE’S EVER NOT A JERK.

PEKOE SAYS HAPPY TIGER YEAR

OKAY OKAY. OKAY. SO, LAST WEEK I WENT TO MY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL. IT WAS AT DAYCARE AND WHEN WE GOT THERE I THOUGHT IT WAS TO PLAY BUT THEN MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI AND AUNTIE MAELIE CAME DOWNSTAIRS TO THE PLAYGROUND WITH ME AND I WAS CONFUSED. I THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO COME PLAY WITH ME AND THE OTHER DOGS AND I WAS EXCITED! BUT THEN THE DAYCARE LADY SAID I HAD TO STAY ON MY LEASH AND BE A GOOD DOG EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE OTHER DOGS WHO WERE NEW DOGS I HAD NEVER MET BEFORE. WE HAD TO STAY FIVE FEET APART AND THAT WAS VERY HARD BECAUSE I ALWAYS WANT TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH NEW DOGS BUT THEY HAD TO STAY TOO. AUNTIE ARI AND AUNTIE MAELIE WENT TO SIT BEHIND THE FENCE AND WATCH AND MUMMY TOLD ME TO SIT.

SCHOOL WAS VERY HARD. I HAD TO STAY ON MY LEASH THE WHOLE TIME AND WE WALKED IN CIRCLES A LOT. ALSO MUMMY KEPT PULLING ON MY LEASH WHICH I DIDN’T LIKE BECAUSE WHEN WE WALK I LIKE TO GO FIRST TO MAKE SURE THERE AREN’T ANY NINJAS. BUT WE WALKED AROUND THE ROOM ELEVENTY BILLION TIMES AND THEN I HAD TO SIT AND WALK AND SIT AGAIN. WE ALSO DID A THING WHERE MUMMY SAID STAY AND STOOD IN FRONT OF ME AND I STAYED AND THEN STOOD BESIDE ME AGAIN AND SAID I WAS A GOOD DOG. I’M NOT SURE WHY I WAS A GOOD DOG BUT THAT’S OKAY, I LIKE GETTING TOLD SO. THERE WAS LOTS OF THAT.

AFTERWARDS MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI SAID I COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER BUT I WASN’T THE WORST DOG THERE SO THAT WAS OKAY. THERE WAS SHELBY WHO JUST WANTED TO LIE ON THE FLOOR AND SHADOW WHO KEPT YELLING AT EVERYBODY AND BOWSER WHO WAS REALLY REALLY JUMPY AND EVEN MORE EXCITED THAN ME. I THINK I DID REALLY GOOD EVEN THOUGH I WASN’T THE BEST DOG.

THE NOT-SO-GOOD THING IS THAT NOW WHEN WE WALK MUMMY KEEPS YANKING ME BACK TO WALK NEXT TO HER. SHE SAYS “HEEL” WHICH MEANS DON’T PULL AHEAD AND YANKS ON MY COLLAR AND I’M SUPPOSED TO SIT WHEN WE STOP WALKING WITHOUT BEING TOLD EXCEPT FOR THIS KIND OF SIT SHE SAYS “HEEL” SO I AM STILL A LITTLE CONFUSED. I AM GETTING BETTER THOUGH. LAST NIGHT ME AND MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI WENT ON A WALK IN THE WOODS AND I SAT WHEN WE STOPPED ALMOST HALF OF THE TIMES.

GHOST PEKOE

I AM VERY HANDSOME IN MY NEW RED SCARF

THE OTHER NOT-SO-GOOD THING IS THAT I HAVE A NEW COLLAR I HAVE TO WEAR WHEN WE WALK. I DON’T LIKE IT BECAUSE IT IS POKEY AND UNCOMFORTABLE BUT MUMMY SAYS IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE. ANYWAY I CAN TELL EASIER WHEN I PULL ON MY LEASH WHICH AUNTIE ARI SAYS IS SUPPOSED TO HELP ME LEARN TO BE A GOOD DOG. MUMMY WALKED ME PART OF THE WAY AND AUNTIE ARI WALKED ME THE REST OF THE WAY AND BY THE END OF THE WALK I WAS HARDLY PULLING AT ALL.

(THEN I GOT MAD AT A MEAN LADY IN THE ELEVATOR WHICH KIND OF RUINED EVERYTHING BUT I THINK IT WAS HER FAULT BECAUSE ONE TIME SHE YELLED AT ME AND HIT ME WITH A MILK JUG. MUMMY DOESN’T AGREE.)

YESTERDAY WAS LUNAR NEW YEAR AND ALSO VALENTINE’S DAY AND MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI WENT OUT REALLY EARLY TO SEE THE PARADE. AUNTIE MAELIE MADE THIS VIDEO WHICH IS VERY GOOD EVEN THOUGH IT IS NOT ABOUT ME:

I DIDN’T GET TO SEE THE PARADE BUT AUNTIE ARI MADE ME A SCARF WHICH IS RED BECAUSE RED IS LUCKY. THIS MEANS I WILL HAVE PROSPERITY THIS YEAR WHICH MUMMY SAYS MEANS I WILL BE A GOOD DOG FOR THE YEAR OF THE TIGER. SEE THIS PICTURE IN WHICH I AM A TIGER TOO:

PEKOE IS A TIGER

EXCEPT I COULD TOTALLY EAT A REAL TIGER BECAUSE I AM MUCH MORE AWESOME.

MY SCARF IS VERY HANDSOME AND I LIKE IT VERY MUCH AND I HAVE EVEN STOPPED TRYING TO EAT IT, EXCEPT LAST NIGHT IN THE PARK I ALMOST LOST IT IN THE DARK. AUNTIE ARI HAD TO GO BACK AND WHEN SHE CAME BACK SHE SAID IT WAS LIKE THE PART IN THE HORROR MOVIE WHERE THE MONSTER COMES OUT OF THE WOODS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS BECAUSE I DIDN’T SMELL ANY MONSTERS AND I WOULD HAVE, BUT MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI SAID IT WAS FUNNY SO IT MUST HAVE BEEN. I DON’T UNDERSTAND HUMANS SOMETIMES.

CAN I EATS THE OLYMPICS? A STORY IN PICTURES

One (1) Pair of Olympic Mittens

SADISTIC OWNER AND VERY GOOD DOG

=

PEKOE HAS OLYMPIC SPIRIT!!!

PEKOE IS A COMMUNICATOR

PEKOE IS A MASTER COMMUNICATOR. I HAVE MANY WAYS OF COMMUNICATING. I HAVE YELPING AND BARKING AND WAGGING AND PACING AND GRUNTING AND NUDGING AND MOANING AND TWITTERING AND ROLLING MY EYES AND MORE BARKING AND BLOGGING.

BUT MY MUMMY IS A BAD LISTENER.

PEKOE IS CLASSICALLY TRAGIC

LAST NIGHT, WHEN I WOKE UP AT EARLY IN THE EARLY MORNING AT NIGHT AND MY TUMMY FELT SICK, I WENT OVER TO MY SLEEPY MUMMY AND SAID:

“Forsooth! Maiden mother from whom my loyalty hangs like the pale light from the face of the moon – arise!”

AND MY MUMMY SAID: “Gnerl? Go back to sleep.”

AND SO I SAID: “Sleeping Athena! Rise to all your bipedal glory. For mine stomach is full of grumblings like the cankerous under wave voice of the Titans. And unlike proud Jupiter, I must obey.

AND THEN MUMMY SAID: “It’s one o’clock in the morning, Pekoe. Go back to sleep or I’m sending you back to the shelter.”

AND I SAID: “Your jesting tone doth much belie the wounding nature of your words. However, I must insist.”

SO I BARKED AND WHINED AT HER UNTIL SHE PUT ME IN THE KITCHEN.

AND THEN I SAID: “Awake! Arise! The Hun of digestion is at the bodily gates! And I do not wish to soil our fine domicile and slight the household gods!”

AND MUMMY SAID: “I hate you so much right now.”

PRINCESS PEKOE IS A PRETTY PRINCESS

SO WE WENT FOR A SECRET NIGHT WALK IN THE DARK AND IT WAS SCARY BUT MUMMY PROTECTED ME FROM THE BUSHES AND THE COUCHES AND I PROTECTED HER FROM THE NINJAS SHE CANNOT SEE.

AND WENT WE GOT BACK, MY TUMMY FELT BETTER AND I JUMPED ON MUMMY’S BED AND WENT TO SLEEP.

MUMMY IS SO DENSE SOMETIMES.

THIS IS A DOGGY COUNTDOWN

THIS MORNING MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI TOOK A MILLION BILLION YEARS TO GET UP SO I CRIED BECAUSE I WOULDN’T SETTLE DOWN LAST NIGHT SO I HAD TO SLEEP IN THE KITCHEN. AFTER AUNTIE ARI GOT UP AND LET ME OUT MUMMY STILL WASN’T UP SO I TOOK MY PILLOW INTO THE HALLWAY AND LAID DOWN ON IT AND LOOKED SAD. WHEN THAT DIDN’T WORK I WENT AND GOT MY SQUEAKY OCTOPUS AND I THREW IT ON THE FLOOR AND IT BOUNCED AND I CHASED IT AND RAN INTO MUMMY’S DOOR BUT SHE STILL DIDN’T WAKE UP. I WAS GETTING BORED THEN SO I WATCHED AUNTIE ARI MAKE BREAKFAST AND SHE GAVE ME SOME CHEESE SO THAT WAS ALL RIGHT.

I DON’T LIKE MOVIES VERY MUCH BECAUSE I THINK THEY ARE BORING. I HAVE TO LIE DOWN AND BE VERY CALM WHICH IS NOT FUN. THIS MORNING MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI WERE WATCHING A MOVIE ON THE TV AND MUMMY SAID WE’D GO FOR A WALK AFTER IT WAS DONE BUT I DIDN’T WANT TO WAIT. I DID ANYWAY BECAUSE I AM A GOOD DOG.

MUMMY SAID I HAD TO STAY UNTIL THE MOVIE WAS OVER, BUT I ALMOST SNEAKED AWAY.

IT'S OKAY NOW THOUGH BECAUSE WE'RE GOING FOR A WALK.

ON TUESDAY I AM GOING TO THE VET FOR SHOTS WHICH I DON’T LIKE AND A CHECKUP WHICH I DON’T LIKE EVEN MORE. THE VET POKES ME WITH THINGS AND DOES COLD THINGS TO MY SOFT PARTS BUT I GET TREATS AT THE END AND ANYWAY I AM A GOOD DOG SO I BEHAVE ANYWAY. I HAD A MEAN VET ONCE WHO SHAVED MY LEG AND MADE ME GO TO SLEEP BECAUSE I WAS SCARED AND DIDN’T LIKE HIM BUT I WAS ONLY SCARED BECAUSE HE WAS MEAN AND DIDN’T LIKE DOGS VERY MUCH WHICH I THINK MEANS HE’S STUPID AND PICKED THE WRONG JOB. I LIKE MY VET NOW BECAUSE SHE TELLS ME I AM A GOOD DOG AND I GET TO STAND ON THE TABLE WHICH I’M NOT ALLOWED TO DO AT HOME.

AT THE END OF THIS MONTH I WILL HAVE BEEN PEKOE BROWN FOR ONE WHOLE YEAR. I AM VERY EXCITED. AUNTIE ARI SAYS I SHOULD GET A CAKE TO CELEBRATE MY DOGIVERSARY WHICH I THINK IS A GOOD IDEA BECAUSE CAKE IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA. I WANT ONE WITH BEEF AND SPRINKLES. I THINK THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.

ALSO THIS WEEK I AM STARTING SCHOOL WHICH I AM NERVOUS ABOUT BUT NOT VERY MUCH BECAUSE I AM ALREADY VERY SMART AND KNOW LOTS OF TRICKS. MUMMY SAYS I MUST BEHAVE AND DO WHAT THEY SAY SO THAT ONE DAY I CAN BE A REAL GOOD DOG AND NOT GET SO EXCITED WHEN I SEE OTHER DOGS OR SQUIRRELS OR NINJAS OR OTHER IMPORTANT THINGS. MUMMY SAYS THAT I AM 65% GOOD DOG. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS BUT I THINK 65 IS LESS THAN THE WHOLE THING SO I WILL TRY HARD.

ON THIS MORNING’S WALK I AM GOING TO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR NINJAS BECAUSE THEY ARE A RISING THREAT. A WHOLE BUNCH OF OTHER DOGS HAVE SAID THEY ARE ALL OVER THE CITY AND THEY ARE DRIVING BIG WHITE CARS AND WEARING BLUE NINJA OUTFITS AND WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE UP TO BUT IT IS PROBABLY NO GOOD.

PEKOE’S BUSIEST WEEK MAYBE EVER

I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO BLOG MUCH THIS WEEK BECAUSE MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI ARE REALLYREALLY BUSY AND COULD NOT HELP ME TYPE. BUT RIGHT NOW WE ARE WAITING FOR GINNY SO WE CAN GO TO THE PARK AND I WILL JUST DO A QUICK ONE.

LAST WEEK I WENT TO DOGGY DAYCARE ON MONDAY AND PLAYED WITH GINNY ON WEDNESDAY AND WE WERE SUPPOSED TO GO TO THE BEACH ON SUNDAY BUT IT RAINED SO WE DIDN’T GO. I WAS VERY SAD BUT MUMMY SAYS THE OCEAN WAS PROBABLY COLD SO IT’S JUST AS WELL BUT I DON’T GO IN THE OCEAN ANYWAY SO I AM STILL SAD. AUNTIE MAELIE WHO HAS THE CAR SAYS WE CAN GO AGAIN SOME TIME SOON BUT NOTHING EVER SEEMS LIKE SOON BECAUSE I AM VERY IMPATIENT.

LAST NIGHT MUMMY WAS ANNOYED AT ME BECAUSE I WOULDN’T SLEEP FOR MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES AT A TIME SO I HAD TO SLEEP IN THE KITCHEN. IT’S NOT MY FAULT I AM ALERT FOR NINJAS, IT’S MY JOB. AUNTIE ARI SAYS THEN WHY DO I SLEEP WHEN I SLEEP ON HER BED, DOES THAT MEAN I DON’T CARE IF NINJAS GET HER BUT I TRIED TO TELL HER IT’S BECAUSE HER BED IS MAGIC AND COMFORTABLE AND ON MUMMY’S I HAVE TO CURL UP AND BE ALERT. SHE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND ME BUT IT’S IMPORTANT I KEEP ALERT, NINJAS ARE EVERYWHERE.

THIS VIDEO IS FROM MY VERY FIRST EVER TURKEY DAY WHICH WAS GREAT AND THE HUMANS CALLED THANKSGIVING. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS BUT TURKEY IS VERY DELICIOUS. THERE IS ALSO GEORGIE WHO IS A POMERANIAN AND HIDES UNDER THE TABLE TO BITE ME BECAUSE SHE THINKS I AM ANNOYING.

ALSOALSO IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS I AM STARTING OBEDIENCE CLASSES. I DON’T THINK I REALLY NEED THEM BECAUSE I AM MOST OBEDIENT PEKOE AND I CAN ALREADY SIT AND LIE DOWN AND STAY AND SHAKE-A-PAW AND HIGH-FIVE AND FOR-THE-WIN AND LOTS OF OTHER THINGS BUT MUMMY SAYS I NEED TO WORK ON FOCUS WHICH THEY WILL TEACH ME AT SCHOOL. I AM KIND OF NERVOUS BUT MOSTLY VERY EXCITED TO GO LEARN THINGS ANYWAY AND LOTS OF THE OTHER DOGS WILL BE MY FRIENDS FROM DAYCARE, SO THAT WILL BE OKAY.

NOW I HAVE TO GET READY TO GO TO THE PARK, I HOPE YOU HAVE A GOOD DAY.

I AM VERY TIRED TODAY

I LIKE AUNTIE ARI'S BED

IT HAS LOTS OF CUSHIONS AND IS REALLY BIG AND HAS A TEDDY BEAR. I DON'T HAVE A TEDDY BEAR BECAUSE I EAT THEM.

I AM VERY, VERY SLEEPY BECAUSE OF WEDNESDAY AT THE PARK WITH GINNY AND TODAY ALL THE WAY TO METROTOWN AND THE PARK BUT I WANT TO SHOW YOU MY FAVOURITE MOVIE.






THIS IS FROM MY VERY FIRST OUTING TO THE BEACH WHERE I WAS ALLOWED OFF MY LEASH WITH OTHER DOGS. IT WAS GREAT AND THERE WERE LOTS AND LOTS OF OTHER DOGS AND THEY WERE SWIMMING IN THE OCEAN SO I FOLLOWED THEM BUT I RAN INTO THE WATER AND IT WAS REALLY COLD SO I DO NOT GO IN THE OCEAN ANYMORE. AUNTIE MAELIE MADE ME A MUSIC VIDEO BECAUSE I AM A ROCK STAR.

I LIKE AUNTIE MAELIE BECAUSE SHE DRAWS PRETTY PICTURES AND STEALS ME FOR WALKS ON THE BEACH. ALSO SHE TELLS ME IT’S OKAY TO DO BAD THINGS SOMETIMES. SHE IS MY FAVOURITE AUNTIE EXCEPT FOR ALSO AUNTIE ARI AND AUNTIE HAILEE AND AUNTIE KIM AND AUNTIE KILEY AND EVERYBODY ELSE.

MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI WATCHED A MOVIE YESTERDAY THAT TALKED ABOUT DOGS AND PEOPLE BEING FRIENDS AND HOW IT IS VERY IMPORTANT AND SPECIAL (YOU CAN WATCH IT HERE) AND IT HAD A DOG WHO KNEW 300 WORDS. I THINK I ONLY KNOW ABOUT 30 WORDS BUT TODAY WE WERE PRACTICING MY VOCABULARY (I THINK IT MEANS WORDS) SO I LEARNED TO GO GET MY FUZZY YELLOW BALL WHEN MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI TELL ME TO. I CAN NOW GO FIND MY FUZZY YELLOW BALL EVEN WHEN IT IS SOMEWHERE ELSE, LIKE AT THE END OF THE HALLWAY OR IN THE KITCHEN OR ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COUCH (EXCEPT WHEN I AM TIRED OR THERE IS SOMETHING MORE IMPORTANT TO LOOK AT). MUMMY SAID I WAS VERY SMART AND I GOT LOTS OF TREATS. I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS IS SUCH A BIG DEAL BUT THE TREATS WERE GOOD.

I TRIED TO GET MORE TREATS LATER BY DROPPING MY RED BOUNCY HOLLOW BALL ON AUNTIE ARI’S FOOT BUT SHE SAID “NICE TRY BUT I’M NOT FALLING FOR IT.” I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS EITHER BUT SHE DIDN’T GIVE ME ANY TREATS THAT TIME.

EXCEPT FOR PLAYING WITH MY BALL MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI ARE REALLY BUSY TODAY DOING SOMETHING ON THE INTERNETS THAT I DON’T UNDERSTAND. THERE IS A LOT OF MUTTERING AND BAD WORDS THOUGH. I AM PRETTY SURE THAT SOON THEY WILL BE DONE THE BOOKSLINGERS PAGE AND THEN EVERYBODY WILL BE HAPPIER.

OUT OF DOGGY PUNISHMENT DETAIL

MUMMY SAID I WAS NOT A GOOD DOG YESTERDAY SO I COULD NOT DO MY BLOG. TODAY I HAVE BEEN VERY GOOD THOUGH AND SO I HAVE MORE MOVIES TO SHOW YOU.

THIS ONE IS MY VERY FIRST WALK AFTER I CAME HOME FROM THE SHELTER. ACTUALLY I THINK IT WAS MY SECOND WALK BECAUSE THE FIRST WALK WAS THE SAME NIGHT THEY BROUGHT ME BACK IN THE CAR BUT I WASN’T GOOD ON THAT WALK SO I DON’T COUNT IT.

I NEVER PULL ANY MORE EXCEPT WHEN THERE ARE OTHER DOGS OR BIRDS OR SOMETIMES SQUIRRELS OR SOMETHING ELSE REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT. MUMMY SAYS I MAKE HER ARM HURT BUT I THINK SHE IS EXAGGERATING BECAUSE I ONLY MADE AUNTIE ARI FALL OVER THAT ONE TIME.

THIS IS A MOVIE OF ME AND MY VERY FAVOURITE SQUEAKY OCTOPUS THAT I HAVE NOT YET MANAGED TO TEAR INTO PIECES. I HAD ANOTHER OCTOPUS THAT WAS PINK AND FUZZY BUT I ATE IT. I DO NOT REMEMBER WHAT THE HUMANS WERE TALKING ABOUT BECAUSE MY SQUEAKY OCTOPUS WAS SO AWESOME.

I LIKE OCTOPUSES VERY MUCH AND MY FAVOURITE KIND ARE THE FUZZY ONES THAT I CAN RIP INTO LOTS OF PIECES AND THEN ROLL IN THEM LIKE I AM A LION AND THEY ARE A GAZELLE. I LIKE TO DO THAT WITH TENNIS BALLS TOO EXCEPT I WISH THEY DID NOT COME WITH THE FUZZ ON THEM. I ALWAYS HAVE TO PULL OFF THE FUZZ AND THAT TAKES A VERY LONG TIME.

I HAD TO HAVE A BATH YESTERDAY WHICH I DO NOT LIKE BUT MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI KEPT LAUGHING AT MY PAIN.

I AM NOT HAPPY

MUMMY SAID IT WAS MY OWN FAULT BUT IT'S NOT MY FAULT THE MUD WAS SO EXCITING.

EXCHANGE TREAT FOR MISERY?

I DID GET A TREAT BECAUSE MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI THOUGHT I WAS FUNNY.

DRY IS BETTER

HERE I AM NEARLY DRY AND SO I FEEL BETTER.


I LOOK FUNNY WHEN I AM WET AND I ALSO HATE HATE HATE BEING WET ALMOST AS MUCH AS I HATE BEING DIRTY. MUMMY SAYS THAT MEANS I SHOULD STAY OUT OF THE MUD THEN.
