Spotlight Thursday – Meet Louis Dog Armstrong

20 Oct

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Louis Dog Armstrong

Age:  Ten years old in human years!

Location:  Vancouver, Canada

Web/Blog Page:  I have two web blogs because I am an overachieving, prolific writer. The first one is on WordPress and is The second one is mostly about Blogville and is at  I am also on Google + and Pinterest as Louis the Blogging Dog.

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  Actually, I don’t have pawrents in the traditional way. I was adopted and brought to my forever home by Mimi and her two grandchildren. At that time, the three of them lived together. Mimi’s grandson, Eric, was eleven and Autumn, her granddaughter was ten.  I met the three of them when they came to meet my mom, who was a tall black poodle, and my mom’s family. I ruffed the two kids especially and I followed them all over the place while my two brothers just watched. That’s when my forever family and I fell in rruff wid each other.

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  The first night away from my mom (the black poodle) I cried and cried. But my new forevers were so comforting! Mimi had an old alarm clock that you wind up and it goes tick-tock. She turned it on and wrapped it in a soft towel and set it beside me when I was sleeping. I actually thought it was my mom’s heartbeat so I stopped crying and slept. I soon felt the love around me and knew I was home.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?   I think the dogs reading this will understand. One time when Eric was a teenager he left his X-box on the living room floor. The humans all went out somewhere, leaving me alone with it. I was upset that they left me so guess what? I peed and pooed on the X-box. The kids were so mad because my pee went right into the vents and it could never be cleaned. It also smelled disgusting. Plus warranties don’t cover dogs peeing inside X-boxes. Mimi was not angry with me because she said that trained dogs only pee and poo indoors when their peeps haven’t taken them out enough. She also said that junior peeps should not leave their game machines on the floor where dogs might have accidents on them.

 Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why?  Like I said, our family is not like most of the other families. And sadly, the one who I had my paws wrapped around the tightest was Autumn and she crossed the rainbow bridge when she was only 17 years old. We all miss her so much! Now I would say it is Mimi because she is home with me the most.  But Eric takes me for tons of walks and gives the best belly rubs.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They don’t know how much I am tuned into their energy. And some humans don’t believe I can read and write, but the internet is changing that misconception.

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

    Brilliant, Louis! Someday I’m planning to pee and poo on Mom’s Kindle. I’m tired of that thing stealing her away from me.

    Love and licks,


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
