Hello December!

Hi everydog!

I haven't been blogging much lately because my Mommy has been really busy. Something about trying to get a better job, blah, blah, blah. It's not that interesting. But I'm still here! And I've been tagged by Sparky and Patches to tell you eight things about myself. Here we go:

1) I pee in a box! It is great--I never have to go outside when it is cold or rainy or dark. And I can pee whenever I'm home alone for a while. But I won't poo in my box. So I just go on the floor if nobody lets me out. But don't tell Mommy and Daddy's friends--they'd be appalled.

2) I love my sissy Clover, but I'm also a wee bit scared of her. It's very confusing.

3) I get cold sometimes, so I have lots of sweaters and jackets. I'm wearing my red Christmas sweater right now. You can see it in our Christmas picture:

(By the way, is it weird that my parents have coordinating "house pants"?)

4) I'm a reluctant eater of dog food. And Clover is a reluctant eater of cat food. But if we could switch, oh boy! Look out!

5) I love to go camping. When I'm ready for bed I walk over to the tent and scratch on the door to say I'm ready to go inside and get in Daddy's sleeping bag.

6) I sleep under the covers in the middle of the bed. Sometimes if I feel that I need more room, I will try to use my little feets to push Mommy off the side. Can you see my feets?!

7) I am a very fast runner. And I mean VERY FAST! When I first came to live with Mommy and Daddy, they surmised that maybe I was part Italian Greyhound because I was so fast. But probably not, since I'm so small.

8) Sometimes after I've been outside for a little while (like 5 seconds), I will come back in and "fake-a-poo." This means that I spin and kick and look up expectantly so that someone will be tricked into giving me a treat. I taught my parents that trick very early on and it has paid off quite nicely in the long run!

Bye for now!

Your holiday sweater is very cute! I never knew you could pee in a box. That's what I do, too! But I also must go number 2 in there.

Hi Poppy,

That carpeted "pooping parlor" on the upstairs landing" was not too popular in our house, especially when my brother Jake was a top outside performer and I'd walk and walk and walk and then come back inside and head for the landing!!

But I've learned and now it's
"Yay Harry" when I do my business outside. I'm kind of on probation -- but I think I get it now.

Love your "Super Pooper" costume. Maybe they'll get me one now.

Come visit again when you have a minute.

Wirey woofs!!

Hi Poppy

I know what you mean about dog food. UGH. Lucky for me kibble makes my bro Arrow sick in a disgusting way so they mix it with rice and hamburger now. That's a real nice sweater. Red is your color!

Hi Poppy,

hey, i do the same thing in bed... except i am on Top of the covers. You look super cute in your holiday sweater!


Petra said...

I think sleeping under the covers in the middle of the bed is the best, too!

Hi, Poppy
Fake a poo?? I've never done that. Sure I have to try it!
You look great in your holiday sweater! Nice color!
I like your footsie picture!
Have a good night

It's so good to hear from you, Poppy! We missed you!

Those were great facts - our mom wishes we would tinkle in a box, but we think she should just put sand down all over the house. Then we'd all win, right?!

Pretty Poppy!

I love your little feetsies! They're so cute they should NEVER have to go outside to get cold and wet. :-) They're also the perfect size for poking people in the back when you want them to move, I'm sure... just like mine!

That is so cool that you have a box to pee in, maybe your beans could rig up another box for you to poo in as well. We likes your holiday sweater, you look good in it. We learned lots of things about you today.
