Mutt Movies – History Was Made With the Last Running of the Belmont Stakes.

Sherlock blogging today.

Let me start off by saying the only reason I insisted Momma Mim turn on the telly was because I heard the Belmont Steaks was on. I always enjoy a good steak.  I was very delighted to learn horses were involved. Some of my best friends are horses. I bark at the police horses and the horses that give rides in carriages around downtown.  They love that!

I quickly picked up on this betting thing.  I was able to get in a quick wager with the boxer next door on the race.  I could tell who would win because, well; I’m Sherlock. No clue escapes me. And of course I won. Three bones, a bag of Snausages, and the exclusive rights to bark at the local opossum – mine! All mine!!!

Momma Mim took some video of the race because she said history could be made.  And it was. For the first time in history, a poodle gave an Academy Award winning performance in a documentary.  I expect the Oscar – steak Oscar. I like asparagus, crab, and Bearnaise sauce!

Watch the video and judge for yourself. Regardless of an Oscar or not, I am already a winner. And American Pharoah wasn’t so bad himself.


Mutt Movies – Thumbs and Animal Cruelty.

Sherlock penning today.

Sometimes my human, Momma Mim, is a meanie.  Take tonight for example. She knows I don’t have thumbs, and yet, she puts the whip cream tub upside down so I couldn’t get to the yummy. Where is PETA when I need them?

This woman was so coldblooded, instead of helping when she saw my dilemma, she picked up her camera to record it. But I, being of the Standard variety of poodle, solved the problem all on my own. And may I add, there wasn’t a bit of whip cream that escaped my masterful tongue.

Perhaps I should not be so hard on Momma Mim. After all, she let me and Shasta eat the crust from her pie and always shares a taste of her goodies (after I give her a good stare down.) But I tell you, if I had thumbs, I would not only have my way with the refrigerator, I would use it to take some pictures of Momma Mim when she is sleeping. Uploading a video of her snoring and drool running down her cheek would be lovely payback.

Mutt Movies – My Dirty Secret

Sherlock posting here today. 

For my first post, I thought I would share a personal problem I have. I’m a TV junkie!!!

It started at a young age when my human exposed me to this vice. I remember it well. It was a cat food commercial.  From there I was hooked. I graduated to jonesing for stronger stimulants like the Save the Animal commercials then jumped right to the hard stuff like PBS’s Nature’s special on wolves and Air Bud movies.  My human is trying to make me go cold turkey by hiding the remote. I hope all of you will support me through my journey of recovery. In the meantime, above is a video of me getting a fix. It is an old one from last year but has the Christmas decorations that Momma Mim would not put up this year so I thought it was more seasonal. The holidays are especially hard for us addicts (see photo below – I have watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer four times.) It is hard to watch but important you see how bad my habit is.  (And please forgive Shasta barking – she gets a little neurotic when I’m using.)
