Friday's Feast #3

If you could take lessons to learn any musical instrument, which would you want to learn?
BANJO! Oooo ... I'd be so good at playin' the banjo. There's even a banjo-makin' place here in Spring Valley (Deering Banjo Company - 3733 Kenora Dr. Spring Valley, CA 91977) ... that was featured on an episode of Reader's Digest presents Made in America hosted by John Ratzenberger. I'd be an awesome banjo player. Hmmm ... That's got me to thinkin': If a guitar player's called a guitarist, what's a banjo player called?

Have you ever mistaken a person for someone else?
Yep. I'm ashamed to say that I once mistook another person for my auntie and tried to get into her car with her at the dog park. The woman was pretty freaked out. I'd guess that she's stopped screamin' by now ... I hope.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how well do you keep secrets?
I suck at secret-keeping. A pat on the head or a Greenie® and the beans are spilled.

Main Course
What's the closest you've ever been to a dangerous animal?
Um. I'm a dog with some serious teeth, but Lucky Charmz kicked my butt once. That kitty's got some claws and I got on the business end of two of 'em ... so, I'd say that I've been "up close and personal" with a dangerous animal.

When was the last time you lost your patience?
Gosh. How embarrassing. The last time I lost my patience, I also lost my house-trainin' ... if you catch my drift.

I'm BANANAS for bandanas!

By popular demand ... Here are a couple of shots of ME wearing one of my favorite bandanas made by my favorite auntie. Since I'm such a good-lookin' guy ... I've been called a "hottie" at the beach and on (well, around) the golf course, my auntie made me a chili pepper bandana that declares that I'm "HOT!"

My auntie made me lots and lots of bandanas, so I'll try to take some high fashion model type shots and get 'em up here on my bloggie for all of you to investigate. Perhaps when I get enough posts on my bloggie, I'll have a contest with a terrific bandana for a prize! Sound good? Let me have your feedback ... My auntie's even made some tiny ones that looked pretty cute on my cousins, the Feline Americans.

Later dudes (and dude-ettes)!

My Secret Paw: Kesey!

Hey, efurryone! Kesey finally posted some photos of himself openin' the package that I sent him for Secret Paws back at Christmastime!

Here he is modelin' the pink bandanna that my auntie, DaisyMae Maus's mom, made for him. He really likes pink like my best friend Skeezix the Cat!

Doesn't Kesey look furry wonderful in his bandanna? He's a good-lookin' woofie (like me!).

I can't wait until Diva Kitty and the Fluffies start signin' us up for another Secret Paws sometime in March. I ... CAN'T ... WAIT!

Oh, speakin' of bandannas ... my auntie sewed me two new ones. One is blue and has paw prints all over it and the other one is my pirate bandanna: It has skulls on a black background. I look ... dangerous. Bwah, ha, ha!

Friday Feast #2

Which television shows do you just refuse to miss?
I watch "Friday Night Smackdown" and other wrestling shows with Mom and Dad. When they're not looking, though, I like to watch the DIY Channel's "Barkitecture" program to get yard-furnishing ideas and see what's up in the world of canine design.

Who did you last speak to on the telephone?
Hmmm ... I barked at grandma on the phone when she was back in Minnesota visitin' her friends. It THINK it was last weekend.

How many pillows do you keep on your bed?
Pillows? I sleep with a pillow and I use Dad as a pillow, so ... two.

Main Course
Name one addition to your computer (software, hardware, etc.) that you'd love to have.
I'd like an instantaneous flashy thing that would allow photos to be uploaded from the camera to the computer in a kinda wi-fi way. Mom and Dad take tons of photos, but they don't manage to get them up onto the computer so that I can post 'em to my blog. That sucks.

What is your favorite foreign food?
I don't have a foreign favorite 'cuz I like ALL types of food. Oh, no ... wait! I like those bratwursts, but they give me horrible gas.

My First FRIDAY FEAST ever!

Friday Feast One Hundred & Twenty Six

What comes to mind when you see the color orange?
Um. "Orange," huh ... I'd have to say my "Hurl a Squirrel" toy that I love to tug away from Dad.

Did you ever get in trouble while you were in school? If so, what was it for?
I am ALWAYS in trouble because I don't follow instructions when I wanna do things my way. My aunt bought me "obedience" training at PetSmart for Christmas 2005 ... But I think that I may have ... selective amnesia.

Which topping(s) make up your perfect pizza?
I will eat almost ANYTHING on a pizza. Sweat sock? Yep. Lint? Sure. Green peppers? No ... Freaking ... Way.

Main Course
Do you believe in UFOs/aliens/etc.? Why or why not?
Everyone thinks that I'm an alien, so sure ... I have good self-esteem. I believe in myself wholeheartedly. Yep. Aliens EXIST!

What color is your bedspread/comforter/quilt?
Um. Is "fur-covered" a color?

How did they KNOW about the carpet?!?

Okay ... This is just TOO creepy! I went to find out my title in the canine aristocracy. All was well and good until I clicked the button and THIS came up!
My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Very Lord Shadow Saluki the Paragon of Piddletrenthide on the Carpet
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

How did they know that I piddled on the carpet?

Shadow Saluki, mystified woofie

Wheewwww ... I'm back!

Dad's been studyin' for his credentialing exam and hasn't had much time to let me on the computer to update my blog! I've been nudging him and cajoling him to no avail. Can you believe that I haven't been on the computer since CHRISTMAS??? Lots of stuff has happened since then ... I got to open my Secret Paws (photos in a future post(!)), I've been on walkies dozens of times, I've eaten stuff ... Lots to report, but I don't know where to start.

Let me think a bit and get things squared away ...
