A Dog, A Friend and A Boat

I have a lot of friends that love the water. Every chance they get they are jumping in the pool as if it is the greatest thing ever. I think they are a little nuts. I’m not such a fan of the pool, or water in general. So when the Servants told me we were going on a boat, my first thought was “Cool! That sounds awesome! What’s a boat?”  Continue reading A Dog, A Friend and A Boat

Fashionable

First of all,  I want to take a moment to wish you a happy new year filled with marvelous treats, lots of sunshine and long walks.

You may recall that last year I was lobbying for a nice sweater. Well, this year the cold weather just snuck up on me. It was pouring out, so I was hunkered down on the couch not going anywhere, when I hear the Servants talking about a cold snap coming. Sometimes they have the weirdest conversations. It went like this:  Continue reading Fashionable

Happy Holidays

christmas bIt is that time of year again… cocktails, cakes, egg nog, and I get none of it. (I don’t really seem too deprived, do I?)  Since it is the holiday season, I thought I would take a moment to wish all of my canine and human friends a happy whatever-you-celebrate. And a happy new year. I will likely be off lounging in the sun, and possibly get invited to a few parties. Continue reading Happy Holidays

She Left Me

It is hard to get a shot with all of us sitting still...

It is hard to get a shot with all of us sitting still…

A few days ago the Lady Servant vanished. OK, she didn’t exactly vanish. The Man Servant and I dropped her off at the cruise port to go on a trip with her friend. She told me she would be back in a few days, so I have been keeping her side of the bed warm in the meantime.  Continue reading She Left Me

Birthday Parties? I want one!

I think I will wear this to my next party. Whaddaya think?

I think I will wear this to my next party. Whaddaya think?

You may have read the Lady Servant’s take on the doggie birthday party here, but I have my own views. This past weekend the Servants told me that my friend Max was turning two. I had a bit of a hard time with that because when I first met Max, he and I were the same size. Now he outweighs me by about seventy pounds. I have no idea how that happened. Continue reading Birthday Parties? I want one!

Happy Thanksgivukkah

You know, dogs aren’t known for being thankful creatures, but I am going to buck that trend. I have a lot to be thankful for, and want although I have shared this list in the past, I have edited it for the new year. I am thankful: Continue reading Happy Thanksgivukkah

Everybody Poops

Just the other day, I realized something funny. Humans need to go to the bathroom far more often than dogs. I wonder why that is? I usually go for a walk in the morning, (and this is TMI, I know…) go to the bathroom then.

I then take a walk in the middle of the day, and then again in the evening before dinner. I go each time. For a dog, I think I drink a lot of water (the Lady Servant is always telling me to stay hydrated.) But I still don’t need to pee every five seconds. I just enjoy my beverage, then go back to whatever I was doing napping.

A couple of days ago as I was riding from Key West to Hollywood with the Lady Servant and my Grand Servants, it seemed that every two minutes we had to stop because the Lady Servant had to pee. She said something about an unusually large iced tea at lunch, and then another one in a to-go cup, but nonetheless there were a couple extra stops made. For the record, during those many stops, I only peed once.

I am no anatomy expert, but it seems that I should have a much smaller bladder than the humans, right? So what is up with them always needing to go? I guess this is just one of those many mysteries that I will never figure out. (Much like why it is that the Servants never get really excited to run around the backyard… Those strange humans…)

 

 

Just a Normal Day

I still like to eavesdrop even if I am sleeping...

I still like to eavesdrop even if I am sleeping…

I realize that I often write about the strange goings-on in the human world. Rarely do I talk about what a normal day in my life is like, but today is the day. I’m a dog, so most of my day is occupied by three things: sleeping, eating and walking. I am good at all of them. Continue reading Just a Normal Day

Hanging With Henry

That's me, and Henry in the background.

That’s me, and Henry in the background.

The Servants have been away now for just over a week, and while I will be delighted to see them tomorrow, I have been enjoying my time here at Chez Henry. (Oh, and when I do see the Servants, I will not let on that I am happy to see them. Instead I will pout and make them feel really bad for leaving me. Do you think it will work?) Continue reading Hanging With Henry

Happy Halloween

This guy clearly doesn't mind getting dressed up.

This guy clearly doesn’t mind getting dressed up.

This past weekend was my very first time at any of the Fantasy Fest events in Key West. It seems that a lot of humans are naked during these festivities, but I don’t get why that matters. I mean, I am naked most of the time, and nobody seems to mind that, right? Continue reading Happy Halloween
