Barks! Sometimes one has to shoot for the moon – shoot for the stars – or in my case shoot the hoop. I went off with mom and some of her friends were playing b-ball. They asked me if I wanted to play. How could I refuse? Especially when the guys help me out with my dunks. It was an awesome time for sure. I loved chasing the ball.
It was just kind of hard for me to dribble but hey they understood. Have you ever gotten your paw on the hoop or backboard? Now that is some fun for sure. I highly recommend it!
Yep, me and mom have been at it again. I thought I was dying. Really I did. I heard about this mysterious disease on the television on the afternoon news. I can’t get sick. Who would take care of mommy then? So, I did what I do best. I sent her a text.
My texts are in grey and mom’s are in blue. You’ll see. I thought this was the end.
What is this March madness that I keep hearing about? I turn on the television and they are talking about it. Dad is talking about it. It’s on the computer. I don’t get it. They talk about March madness and brackets. Brackets? What are brackets?
I know it’s March – is it about nature outside? Is it about coming out of my piggy hibernation from the winter?
Is it about Spring and Summer that relate to warm weather and running? Is that the bracket they are talking about?
Is it about the fresh fruit that I start to get with warmer weather? You know – strawberries, cantaloupes and my favorite watermelon?
I’m confused – will I go mad if I get this bracket?
Is it time to kick back in my chair outside and let the sun touch my belly? Maybe the bracket is making sure that I use suntan lotion so that I don’t burn? I know it’s definitely time to kick these hooves up in the air and start coming out of the cold of winter.
I’ve been so confused about this for days that finally I had a heart to heart with mom this morning. I asked her what this March Madness and bracket thing was. I was kind of getting scared about it.
The backboards that shatter. The free throws. The rebounds. The dribbling. It all comes back to me now.
It’s *THAT* kind of March Madness. That’s such a relief. I thought for a moment it was a disease! Snort.
So, let’s everyone get a little bit of the March Madness and shout for your team! I wonder if they need a smart, slightly spoiled, adventurous pig for a team. With this pot belly I’m kind of awkward in making a dunk but I can be heck on dribbling!
Barks! Happy Friday friends. Hope you have been having an awesome week so far. It’s down hill from here – I can see the light of the weekend. Hopefully this weekend I can rest and relax with mom. Last weekend, I went for my yearly wellness check. This is me and my doc, Dr. Waggoner. He’s a pretty cool guy for sure. He said I was in good health and my weight was great – isn’t that what we all want to hear? In fact, my weight was actually down a little from last year. Dad was worried because someone has been giving a few extra treats here/there. So no worries daddy – bring me some more treats – barks!
Mom said I was her sweet little trooper today. I got three shots and not one single time did I whimper or cry. See, I was a big boy ❤ And I don’t have to go back for another year – now *that* is awesome.
Now, I leave you with Jokes with Daddy – I know you can’t wait for that. Have a great weekend dear friends.
Barks! Oh friends – how was your week? Mine was just barky wonderful! I want to show you a new toy that I got last weekend during the great Snowmageddon here in the south. It’s a Bark’s Woof Beer bottle. It’s made of hard plastic and has a squeaky toy in the bottom part of the bottle. It’s the cutest thing and mom/dad fell in love with it when they saw it in the store. They just knew I would love it – don’t you?
They brought it home and gave it to me. Oh my doggy heavens! You should have seen me dragging it around the Hotel Thompson, squeaking and playing with it. It was a blast! Mom took this picture of me on the couch. I actually fell asleep with the bottle in my mouth. Mom said I couldn’t hold my woof beer. Barks with piggy laughter!
Hello sweet friends – Happy 2017!! Can you believe we finally made it to the new year? We stayed up a little to watch the fireworks. We had an awesome seat right in our front room at the Hotel Thompson where we could see out the window. Some peeps in the hood went crazy – I don’t know how they even had fireworks left for midnight there were so many. We were all okay as long as mom/dad were in the living room. And with the noise, we all got to sleep in the big bed with them. Now that was awesome!
This was one of the pictures that mom took of me and dad on New Years Eve. Me and dad were having a blast. I just love sitting behind him on the pillows and looking over his shoulder. You know – someone has to keep him in line – barks with puppy laughter!
So with the new year comes new Jokes with Daddy – are you looking forward to this? Today’s Jokes with Daddy is a little special. You’ll see what I mean. Have an awesome Friday sweet friends!
Last Friday, my little sister and I received a very special delivery from our sweet little piggy friend Bacon. (If you already know Bacon, then you know what a special little pig he is. If you don’t know Bacon, click here to link to his blog. I promise you’ll fall in love.) To say that our box from Bacon sent both of us into a tizzy would be quite the understatement. It was packed full of everything a girl could ever want.
Tallulah and I were especially obsessed over the pink piggy toy. We spent quite a bit of time trying to dismember him, but he’s tough and managed to survive . . . at least for the first round.
As fabulously fun as the pink piggy toy and the fancy treats were, there was something even more special in that little box from Bacon. Meet Bashful, Bacon’s pet rock. As…
Hello sweet friends! We survived it – Halloween is now behind us and gone for another year. I’m kind of excited about that. Why? Because that means Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before you know it. Now I know we have some stumbling blocks at the end of November – namely that evil Elf on the Shelf here that calls himself Don Juan. But, we got this my friends. We can so do this in anticipation of the fat man at Christmas. Have you gotten your Christmas list started yet? I’ll tell you a secret – come closer. Mom/Dad have actually already started. Can you believe that? I think both of them are more excited for Christmas this year than I have seen them in a very long time.
So friends – I hope you have a wonderful weekend – we plan to run errands here this weekend. And we all know what that means — mom’s lap won’t be here. But don’t worry – I will get my lap time. I’m a Yorkie. I demand it – barks to you!!
Barks my friends! I’m still looking for the *perfect* costume for Halloween. Since we have been watching a lot of football lately, I thought I could be a quarterback so I dressed up in my football jersey – it comes with shoulder and back pads. What do you think? You think coach will call me in to play? I’ve been know to run around the Hotel Thompson with my football and mom/dad can’t catch me at all. I may be small but I got me some good legs.
How has your week been? Last weekend, us anipals had mom/dad all weekend. We never let them leave the Hotel Thompson – not even once. I guess it helps that Bacon hid mom’s Jeep keys – barks with puppy laughter. So this weekend, mom/dad have a LOT of errands to run around and get done. It kind of stinks but we all look on the bright side knowing that mom will pick us all up something special from the market. That we can’t wait for! So do you have anything planned for this weekend?
I leave you now with Jokes from Daddy. Hope you enjoy sweet friends!
Look at me – I’m a bumble bee. Buzz-Buzz. I roll around, fly around and kiss you all over. Barks with puppy laughter. This was my outfit that I picked when I went to the spa Saturday. I had to show my friends that I may be little but I’ve got a huge heart full of love to buzz around them. Mom says this may be my last year with this outfit because I was getting too big for it. I don’t know what she means. I’m not that big at all… no way. I’m just a smidgen bigger than an actual bee, right?
Have a great weekend my friends. I now leave you with Jokes with Daddy!
