BRRRR! DANG IT!

This just in from Sailor’s little niece Lola… our furnace is broken.

Ok, this is the first of theses guys. We,ll see how it works out.

There’s an Ewok in the House!

Snuggles During Movie Time

And her name is Lola.  L-O-L-A Lola.

For all but the first fifteen weeks of my life I’ve been THE dog. Ya know?  Then last September our house was invaded by this little furball. Ya know that B-word they use for female dogs? Well, ten seconds after meeting this one I could understand why. She is the Bossiest B**** I’ve ever met! At first, I didn’t even want to like her.

Her yap got on my nerves. She runs around like she’s on intravenous Red Bull. And the first thing she does every morning is get all of MY TOYS  out of the toy box and scatter them around the house. I guess she wants to make sure that wherever she goes a toy is close by. I couldn’t stand that she was taking my toys. I couldn’t stand that she snapped at me. I couldn’t stand that she wanted All The Attention!

Then, when we took her to the vet, we found out from a broken tooth and other things that the people who had her before us weren’t very nice to her. She probably never had any toys at all. Or enough food. Or any cuddles and kindness.

It suddenly became very easy for me to see all of the good things about her. Her perkiness, her big smile and wagging tail every time she sees one of us, and knowing that like everybody else she loves to be hugged and cuddled.

The happiest day in my life was realizing that “different” is not synonymous with “bad.”

I’m on the Move — or am I Mobile?

On the Move

Dad (and my personal private webguy) says I’m goin’ mobile (whatever that means) so…

Licks and Greetings from my new WordPress site. Dad was up most of the night getting it all together, while I was sleeping on the chair next to him. It turned out to be a pretty simple process, with a cool WordPress plugin that extracted all of the primary content from my Joomla! site.

Dad still had to re-insert all the images, and make the pages, but still MUCH better than having to cut and paste all of that stuff.

Why the switch? You’re thinking.

I can hear the wheels and gears whirring in your head from where I sit. Unlike Dad, I’ve got really good hearing. And it’s really a good question. Since it doesn’t really have anything to do with food or kibble or chew toys, I don’t know the answer… but Dad does. Let me ask him… Pitter patter, pitter patter…. OK, I’m back.

It’s because some relatively new plugins, like WPTouch, WordTwit, and Onswipe make it really easy for us to serve mobile devices (whatever they are) and be sociable.

And I LOVE bein’ sociable.

All for now.

Keep on Woofin’

What’s With the Plastic Bags?

memo from the bossMemo From: Sailor the Dog
To: Dog Parents Everywhere
Topic: Plastic bags don’t mix with business

We know how it is. Or at least YOU’D better. Dogs have to do stuff every once in a while. Silly humans have a lot of sillier euphemisms (hah! you didn’t think a DOG would know that word) for certain bodily functions. “Do Your Business” is one that I hear a lot. Though Mom and Dad would prefer that I “Do My Business” in our own back yard, sometimes, things are just out of my control.

You understand that? Don’t you Dogs?

The thing is whenever I’m NOT in my backyard, Mom or Dad is right behind me with a plastic bag. They make a stupid face and say “Ewww!” while they’re doing it.

Go figure.

If it’s “My Business” what the heck are they doing messing around in “My Business” with a plastic bag. Do you know what they do with it? They PICK IT UP!

Hey, Dummies. Why would I do all of that sniffing and looking, looking and sniffing, to find EXACTLY THE RIGHT PLACE, when you’re gonna PICK IT UP?

Dang, good thing you feed me and walk me, or I wouldn’t have any use for you at all.
