Canine Conversations – New Year Revolutions.

Sherlock: Hello to all. Sherlock and Shasta here to share our New Year Revolutions.

Shasta: It is resolutions, you goof ball.

Sherlock: What fun is that? Watch this – I make at least 20 revolutions in less than a minute in it –

Shasta: As impressed with yourself as you are, it doesn’t change the fact that we are here to make resolutions – not revolutions. I will make the first one. I resolve to not leave balls at the top of the stairs for Momma Mim to trip on.

Shasta and stairs

Sherlock: I don’t like this business. It implies I am doing something I need to change.

Shasta: You have many things you need to change. Let’s start with you resolving not to pull on Momma Mim’s robe when she sits down and gets nice and comfy.   That really is a doggie no-no.

Robe tugging

Sherlock: Nonsense! I do it for her well being. She will get fat if she sits all day. Hey! There is an idea. Let’s make resolutions for Momma Mim. Like, she won’t pick up my toys after I have them nice and scattered.  Do you know how much work it is to get each one in its proper place.

Nice and neat It's a mess

Shasta: {Sigh} I give up. You do your revolutions and I will do my resolutions. My second is I will make sure Momma Mim never has a cold lap.warm lap

Sherlock: You need to do that. Because I’m going to make sure she never has warm feet. Those socks are mine! Bahahahahah!!!!!

Shasta: Enough of you already. I can see this is not going to work. So I will just bid everyone Happy 2015. May all wishes come true.

Sherlock: Me too! Me too! Enjoy your 2015. And may you all have a poodle grace your life this year. And if not poodles – then fame and fortune (although poodles are the better than F&F.) And don’t forget to treat yourself by running free every moment you get because there are others out there who won’t get the chance in the coming year. Peace – my friends – peace.

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.)
