It's Official...

Pin It
...I'm losing it. Either it's a sign of the impending apocolypse or the women at work are REALLY rubbing off on me, because - LOOK! A movie about my dog.
Maybe I'm still delirious from my close call (hardy har har), but I think I feel something ALMOST, SORT OF, NOT QUITE BUT ALMOST like affection for the horrible animal today. I'm gonna go lie down until it passes.


  1. I'm first..YIPPEE!!

    That was a cute video. How can you not love a face like that? This coming from the gal that has not has her stuff chewed up by him.

    P.S. You stinker, I totally bought you story below.

    funny! those dang animals can be so cute, it's the cleaning up bit that stinks.

  3. Well, cute video, but I'm still no dog fan. I'm waiting on the non-poopin, non-barkin, non-bitin kind.

  4. If you find one Brooke, let me know.

  5. Brooke and Sue,
    Go to build-a-bear. They have some really cute dogs there.
    They don't poop.
    They don't bite.
    They don't bark. (if you don't get the voicebox for it)
    They also don't eat, and if you're careful they don't stink very bad.
    In addition,you are able to leave them home alone for extended periods of time without returning to find that they have eaten your curtains and thrown up on your pillow.
    They also don't wake you up in the middle of the night to be let out, only to run around in circles in the backyard, and stare at you all confused like when you yell at them to stop barking and get back in the house.........

    Not that I've had any experience with any of that.

  6. Yeah. If my kids didn't love him so much he'd be out the door.

    You know what I hate? I hate it when my dog goes outside to pee, and it's snowing, (seriously two feet of snow on the ground) and the dog won't come back in. So then I have to put my boots on and a coat on and go get him - and he runs away. And I have to chase him. And he thinks I'm playing a game, so he runs around. And so I go back inside and I actually have to say the word "TREAT" to him so that he'll come inside. So he gets a treat for being a horrible dog. ARG.

    Of course, I could probably eliminate that whole thing if I put him on leash and just took him out there in the first place. Whatever.

    I love those little dogs. I told my hubby I wanted to get one because they look like Ewoks! And look what yours is named! Although I'm familiar with cute but bad dogs. We had a Beagle from hell not too long ago. So cute, but so, so bad!

  8. If you start liking your dog my faith in you will be shaken to the core.

    To the CORE.

  9. Very cute.

    My opinion of dogs is different, because I grew up with a sweet, loving, overprotective German shepherd.

    But I don't ever want a little dog. No way.

  10. When I was a kid, we had a little Lhasa apso. Magnum (as in P.I.) was his name. I believe he had a very small brain. He used to run as fast as he could and ram his head into the kitchen cabinets. He actually dented the wood molding on one of the doors. Very stupid dog. I wouldn't want to be rude, of course, but it looks like you might have a similarly challenged animal judging by the events portrayed on your video. Please, take pity on him.

  11. Dogs poop, right? I don't want one. I'll take Jill's Build-a-Bear option, thanks.

  12. Funny! Jill's comment, too :)


  13. I love my dog very much but last night she nearly became homeless for trying to eat my ipod.

  14. Yeah, the only think keeping our dog from the "homeless shelter" right now is that the kids will occasionally play with her and they profess to love her with all their hearts. You know, when they remember she's there.

  15. Snap out of it! *smack* :) If it poops I don't like it, if I have to clean it up I hate it.
    I guess I should put a disclaimer that doesn't mean children BUT I worked in the nursery last week so I'm letting it stand.

  16. I love dogs. Outdoor dogs that I can play with outside. Or Lassie, I just love Lassie. Oh, and they have to scoop their own poop too.

    I don't currently have a dog. Setting the bar too high is not a bad thing.

  17. Watch The Dog Whisperer, or buy his book. It will change your entire outlook on your dog.

    He's pretty cute, though. It'd be hard to chuck out a face like that.

  18. There are days where Gus is walking the fine line to utter banishment. Like last week when he ate two entire loaves of french bread sitting out on my counter. Oh and got on the couch to enjoy his prize and wedged half a loaf in the cushions while I found him upstairs horking down the other loaf before he got caught.

    Red rum, red rum

  19. I'm allergic, so we'll never have a dog (at least not an indoor one) My son, who LOVES animals, asked his dad when Mommy was going to die. Because then maybe he could get a dog. He was only 4 or 5 at the time, but still...Ouch.

  20. My DH is "allergic" in the bitten three times while in the mission field sense, so we won't be getting one soon. I like a nice goldfish, myself. They seldom live long enough to really even feel sad when they die. And if you do feel sad, you can just get another one and call it by the same name.

    Oh My gosh! That was fantastic!

    I loved my dog, way back when, but boy, was she stupid.

  22. I laughed out loud just hearing YOU laugh.

    I dislike one of our dogs, too. It's the urine.

    (But he does make me laugh.)

  23. I used to have a love/hate relationship with our dogs. It's been downgraded to like/hate. I agree with whoever said to get the Dog Whisperer DVD's or book. I would highly recommend the DVD's myself. If we hadn't gleened a little bit of something out of those scenarios, I truly believe we wouldn't have dogs. At least one of them would be dead. I have so often said that if we weren't so dumb to get a Great Dane, I would have taken his collar and tags off long ago and just let him run off. Unfortunately, everyone in town knows he's ours and we would have him back on our doorstep 3 minutes after send off! We're not intending to microchip him until we decide for sure that we would want him back if he went missing. Our Beagle though is pretty good in comparison. Just pees insty if we yell at her. Guess who has learned to actually turn her volume DOWN when yelling at a dog??? :)

    Ok I was checking back to see if the muse had bitten you and finally took time to watch this. That was great, and your kid is adorable.

  25. I still giggle too, when my husband looks at me that way.

    That's one cute but EVIL puppy! :o)

    Came over from Becky's (Frumpmama). I love your blog!
