Mexican Independence Day

Dis postie is for all da Chihuahuas,  Chinese Crested Dogs, and Mexican Hairless Dogs (yikes) out dare.

Happy Independence Day!

Hummmm…. I guess dey don't like dogs wiff lots of furs in Mexico.  Maybe cuz it gets really hot dare.   I think about weird stuff like dis… just sayin.

What can I say…. I like any day dat involves celebrating wiff a biggy hat, some beer and some good music.   Ya didn't know da I can play da drums bongos… did ya?

And now for a wee little story…

There are two men walking down the street wiff their dogs. One man has a Labrador Retriever, the other, a Chihuahua.

The two men meet outside their favorite cantina, and are both very thirsty because it is a hot day. But the thing is, the cantina does not allow dogs inside. The first man suddenly get an idea. "Follow my lead!!" he says, as he puts on a pair of sunglassess and strolls right on in. "Hey!" says the barman, "You can't bring that dog in here!" "But he's my seeing-eye dog!" replies the man. "Oh, well in that case, you can have him in here." says the barman. 

So the man sits down to have a drink. But the second man is still outside. 

Thinking, what the heck, he puts on sunglasses and goes inside, too. "Hey!" says the barman, "You can't bring that dog in here!" "But he's my seeing-eye dog!" replies the second man. "A chihuahua???" the barman asks. 
Thinking fast, the man replies: "A CHIHUAHUA!? THEY GAVE ME A CHIHUAHUA!?"

It's a puzzlement

What's up over dare?

Dis morning, when I was on my daily neighborhood patrol, I spied something dat I've never seen before.

You'll never believe dis but I think dat white dog has tree'd a squirrel.

I'd better check this out.

Hummmmm…. I don't see a squirrel.

Maybe he's just trying to smell da blue flowers.

Hummmmmmm…. blue flowers?

Hummmmmmm…. he is not moving.

Something it definitely wrong wiff dis picture.
It must be Monday.

And now for some Monday laughs:

  • A day without sunshine is like..., night.
  • On the other hand, you have different fingers.
  • I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.
  • 42.7 percent of all statistics are made up on the spot.
  • Remember, half the people you know are below average.
  • He who laughs last thinks slowest.
  • Plan to be spontaneous tomorrow.
  • Always try to be modest, and be proud of it!
  • How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?
  • I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.

Have a grrrrrrrrrrrreat Monday!

Remembering Greta

Today is National Pet Memorial Day and I'm thinkin about our sweet Greta dat recently passed from eating a really bad mushroom.

My favorite memory of Greta was when she was racing around on the Dogtona Motor Speedway on my last Barkday.

She looked so pretty in pink dat I think all da boys were watchin her instead of payin attention to dar driving.   And…. she had a really cute butt so dar was some pretty spectacular viewin, drivin behind her.   Hey, now dat I think about it…. maybe dat was her strategy.   She was one smart cookie!

Mr. Bailey was dar cheering her on.

Oh… did I remember to tell you dat she WON da Junior Class race?   Yep…. Greta was one fast racer.

I am thankful to have known Greta.  Race on sweet Greta (our girl in Pink)!

Now pop on over to read Oz's poem in honor of Greta.


Pees… I'm also remembering Aunty D's terrier/beagle mix pup and my 1st big brother, Rocky.
Rocky and me (Baby Ranger)

I adored him.
I only knew him for only a month or two.
He was 18 1/2 yrs old.

Hugs and Kisses day

In honor of Angel Benny, I'm participating in Lily & Edward's 2nd Annual Hugs and Kisses day.

I must confess dat I'm really not a huggy kinda Scot.   So….. Mom resorts to sneak'n up on me and den she grabs me and hugss me.  I call dem "grab hugs".   I let her cuddle me for a couple of mins and den I squirm my way out of her arms.   I must admit dat lately, I've been lettin her "grab hug" me for longer periods of times.   One time da hug was even as long as 20 mins (oh my) while she gave me a massage.  Do you think I'm gettin "soft" in my young old age?

Anyways, today I jumped up on da couch while Mom is lying down and den I kinda hugged her leg.  Does dat count?

I'm really just using her leg as a pillow while I watch TV but don't tell her.  It'll be our wee little secret.

Have a huggable day.
