The Wednesday Howl (Talented dog)

 The Wednesday Howl

Talented Dog

A local business was looking for office help. They put a sign in the window, stating the following: “HELP WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a computer and must be bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.”

A short time afterwards, a dog trotted up to the window, saw the sign and went inside. He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail, then walked over to the sign, looked at it and whined.

Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office manager. The office manager looked at the dog and was surprised, to say the least. However, the dog looked determined, so he lead him into the office. Inside, the dog jumped up on the chair and stared at the manager.

The manager said “I can’t hire you. The sign says you have to be able to type.” The dog jumped down, went to the typewriter and proceeded to type out a perfect letter. He took out the page and trotted over to the manager and gave it to him, then jumped back on the chair.

The manager was stunned, but then told the dog “the sign says you have to be good with a computer.” The dog jumped down again and went to the computer. The dog proceeded to enter and execute a perfect program, that worked flawlessly the first time.

By this time the manager was totally dumb-founded! He looked at the dog and said “I realize that you are a very intelligent dog and have some interesting abilities. However, I *still* can’t give you the job.”

The dog jumped down and went to a copy of the sign and put his paw on the sentences that told about being an Equal Opportunity Employer. The manager said “yes, but the sign *also* says that you have to be bilingual.”

The dog looked at the manager calmly and said, “Meow!”

A lot of Work For One Good Picture

The Wednesday Howl (Seeing Eye Dog)

The Wednesday Howl

Seeing Eye Dog

Two men are walking their dogs, a poodle and a german shepard. They decide they’d like to go into a bar for a drink. “But we can’t bring out dogs into that bar,” says the poodle’s human. “Hey, no problem,” says the german shepard’s owner. “Just watch this.” He pulls out a pair of sunglasses and walks into the bar. “Hey, no dogs!” yells the bartender. “But this is a seeing eye dog,” says the german shepard’s human. The bartender apologizes and shows them to a chair. So, the poodle owner decides to follow suit, whips out his sunglasses, and walks into the bar. “Hey, no dogs!” yells the bartender. “But this is a seeing eye dog,” says the poodle’s human. The bartender objects, “Hey, poodles can’t be seeing eye dogs!” The poodle owner gasps, “Poodle? They told me they were giving me a german shepard!”

The Joy Of Running Even More!

Last week I asked my friends to join in with me and enjoy a good run! These energetic pups are running just for the joy of it! Run on over and visit them, you might just be encouraged to do a little running yourself!

Four running for Joy = four times the fun at Sandy Weaver Carman‘s place! It is their heritage! Go see them and read a little interesting history on Siberians.

Here I am running with the blue dog. Running inside can be joyful too!

The Wednesday Howl (Dog Dictionary)

The Wednesday Howl

A Dog’s Dictonary & Guide

Leash: A strap that attaches to your collar, enabling you to lead your owner where you want him or her to go. Make sure that you are waiting patiently with leash in mouth when your owner comes home from work. This immediatly makes your owner feel guilty and the walk is lengthened by a good 10 minutes
.Dog Bed: Any soft, clean surface, such as a white bedspread, newly upholstered couch or the dry cleaning that was just picked up.
Drool: What you do when your owners have food and you don’t.To do this properly, sit as close as you can, look sad and let the drool fall to the floor or better yet on their laps.
Sniff: A social custom to use when you greet other dogs or those people that sometimes smell like dogs.
Garbage Can: A container your neighbors put out weekly to test your ingenuity. Stand on your hind legs and push the lid off with your nose. If you do it right, you are rewarded with food wrappers to shred, beef bones to consume, moldy crusts of bread and sometimes even an old Nike.
Bicycles: Two-wheeled exercise machines, invented for dogs to control body fat. To get maximum aerobic benefit, you must hide behind a bush and dash out, bark loudly and run alongside for a few yards. The rider swerves and falls into the bushes, and you prance away.
Thunder: A signal the world is coming to an end. Humans remain amazingly calm during thunderstorms, so it is necessary to warn them of the danger by trembling, panting, rolling your eyes wildly and following at their heels.
Wastebasket: A dog toy filled with paper, envelopes and old candy wrappers. When you get bored, turn over the basket and strew the papers all over the house. This is particularly fun to do when there are guests for dinner and you prance around with the contents of that very special bathroom wastepaper basket!
Sofas: Are to dogs like napkins are to people. After eating it is polite to run up and down the front of the sofa and wipe your whiskers clean. If there are people sitting on the couch just include them as a handy wipe.
Bath: A process owners use to clean you, drench the floor, walls and themselves. You can help by shaking vigorously and frequently.Lean: Every good dog’s response to the command “sit,” especially if your owner is dressed for an evening out. Incredibly effective before black-tie events.
Love: A feeling of intense affection, given freely and without restriction, shared by you and your owner. Show it by wagging your tail


Working with the Snuggle Puggle (3)

100_1069My work this week for Eduardo  included snuggling with dad so he doesn’t feel left out!

Rusty’s New Years Resolutions

Hi!  Did you make any resolutions? I did. Well actually mom insisted on some of them being added. See if you can tell which ones she wanted.

1. I will find my waist.

2. I will study the doorknob more closely and see if I can figure out a way to use it by  myself. (This is from last year, studying hasn’t helped.)

3. I will teach Riley to quit snuffling Dallas so much and let him walk in the door in peace. I’ve quit this already, so now Riley has to.

4. I will be more diligent in scattering my toys handily throughout the house.

5. I will not get too close to  mom and dad when they are eating dinner so they won’t say the “Park It” command. I hate parking it! Riley on the other hand isn’t even trying act nice while they are eating!

6. I will continue to keep an eagle eye on the squirrel menace in the backyard.

7. I will continue to destuff toys.

8. I will not hide milkbones in corners in the living-room.

9. I will find better places to hid my milkbones so mom will not come along behind me and pick them up. ( hope she doesn’t see this one)

10. Fun, I will try to find it an all situations, or interrupt not-fun situations with fun!

11. I will not gobble down my dinner and breakfast. Unless Riley finishes before me.

12. I will help Riley learn to poop while he is outside and not come inside to poop.

13. I will play tug-0-war everyday with Riley AND mom.

OK I think that’s enough. Mom is getting a little pushy here.  Did you pick out which were the ones she made me put in? The NOT FUN ones. 

Fun, Fun, Fun

Whoa! We had so much fun over Christmas! Mom and dad were both off and home all the time through Christmas all the way to Jan 5. Aunt Sandi, Uncle Larry,  my human cousin Laura and cousin Cowboy were down from Kansas and we had a suprise visit from my friend Maggie who has moved to Dallas!


This is me, Riley and Cowboy.


This is Cowboy and me and that’s Maggie with Riley.  She is really cute so I’m going to post another picture of her so you can see.


There is Maggie and Riley.

We got some cool prezzies for Christmas! We each got a Nylabone. It doesn’t matter that Riley’s is smaller, he wants whichever one I have. We got a Kong Air Dog Jack that looks like a tennis ball, a Kong Donut that looks like a tennis ball and Kong tennis balls that look like tennis balls and they all squeak!! We got some Healthy Edibles which mom hasn’t let us have yet. And we got this funny looking thing called a Humunga Tongue Mini. Mom gives it to us and keeps following us around with the camera. I think she wants to take a funny picture of us. Then, yummy yummy, we got some dog bakery treats! Then I got this yummy tasting rib thing, but mom took it away because I chewed off a piece right away. 😦



One cool thing that all the humans did, that Riley, Cowboy and I didn’t get to do, was go to Medieval Times in Dallas. They liked it a lot. A knight even threw a flower to mom! They got back late that night, it felt kind of funny so we sure were glad to see them.

The Wednesday Howl (Cross-eyed Rottweiler)

The Wednesday Howl

Cross-eyed Rottweiler

(This one is really bad, get ready to roll your eyes)

A man takes his Rottweiler to the vet. “My dog’s cross eyed. Is there anything you can do for him?”

“Well,” says the vet, “let’s have a look at him” So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth.

Finally, he says “I’m going to have to put him down.”

“What? Because he’s cross-eyed?”

“No, because he’s really heavy”


I was tagged by Gizmo to say something nice about the last 10 people/dogs to leave a comment on my blog. So here goes.

Starting with the  last person to leave a comment (who is Khyra at this time) and working my way back we have…

1. Khyra is a beautiful Siberian Husky living where there is a lot of snow! She spells words funny sometimes. Khyra is a nice new friend who is always thinking of others. She wishes her friends Happy Birthday and she has written posts to help her friend Stormy find her way home.

2. Tony is a crazy man who lives in Tasmania (just go look at his header.) His little dog Dixie is such a cutie, even after he gave her a haircut himself. He always has fun posts and sponsored the Flat Tony World Tour which was a lot of fun.

3. Amber-Mae the Solid Gold Dancer really is a dancer. She is so talented, smart, and learns tricks so easily. You should go look at some of the videos on her blog. She and her sisters and mom are always going cool places and having adventures! Her mom is a singer and mom is getting a dvd from her. The proceeds go to help animals! Isn’t her mom nice!

4. Lorenza is always dressed up so cute and has the friendliest face! She likes to go on walkies and check the local pee-mail to see what’s going on. She is the pup that gave me a letter of recommendation for DWB! Thanks Lorenza.

5. Addie had grown up right before my eyes. She is so pretty and so nice and so smart! You should go see the pictures of her with the real Santa Paws! She sends cool treats out too.

6.Abby’s address says crabby abby but I’ve never seen anything crabby about that cute little pup! You should see her Christmas card picture which is really sweet and she posted her rejects which are kind of funny, but don’t tell her I said that.

7. Gizmowho has “Pet Attitude” lives very far away and can’t get foodables in the mail from me. Gizmo has been with his mom for about 6 months and is such a happy and lucky pup to have found her.  He is a great new friend and he’s looking good in his new bling!

8. Monaand her Mommy don’t live too terribly far from me here in Texas. I sure would like to meet her in person some time. Mona does important work, she helps her mommy rescue pups who have been mistreated or lost and need furever homes.

9. Deefor lives in that cold place called Denver. He has a little brother named Arrow who is a mess. Deefor has advice posts every so often that are really good! He looks cute in his green turtle neck (no sweater, just a turtleneck.)

10. My Dog- Life with Penny is a great place to go for interesting news about dogs, dog health etc. Mom always likes to read what Penny’s mom has to say, it makes her think. I’m going to get a cool new toy because of something she wrote! She lives way far away from me too, in Australia. Penny gets to walk in some really pretty places and do cool things.

I won’t tag anyone but if you want to do this it is fun!
