I so enjoyed all your comments on momma's blue words yesterday. I helped to know that I am not the only doggie who suffers with humans who are less than dutiful in their blogging activities.
Having come into this world in the year 2008, is it any surprise that I was on the Internet from the time I was a wee pup? Here is a photo from when Momma and Master came to be interviewed by me and my litter mates.
|Dexter? Perhaps. Momma couldn't tell us pups apart.|
I was so happy to learn that I was going to have another doggie to keep me company in my new home. Not only that, a doggie who already had an established Internet presence so I wouldn't have to train Momma to assist with postings.
I was a bit disappointed when my doggie brother did not greet me upon arrival at the estate, but I'm a patient fellow and I settled in with a nommy toy to wait for my pal to arrive.
I did find it odd that Momma and Master had a large, furry piece of furniture with no known use. Not wanting to offend, I settled in next to the object to show that I approved of their interior decorating choices.
|That furry furniture appears to have a slobber fountain. How odd.|
Can you imagine my horror when the object suddenly animated? I confess, I kind of pee'd a little bit.
|OMG! IT'S ALIVE!!!|
Worse still, was the realization that my new humans were a tad delusional as they insisted that the absurdly large creature was an actual doggie! Not just any "doggie" but my erstwhile companion, Mango, Relentlessly Huge.
I tried my best to keep my distance as the simple being lumbered about the property.
|I think this is a safe distance. I've got my escape route planned out.|
Despite my best attempts, I frequently found myself staring in horror into the cavernous maw which threatened to engulf me and drag me to my doom much as the great whale swallowed Jonah.
|Is this the end for yours truly?|
With no other options, I determined to befriend the beast and I am happy to report that by the time winter rolled around I was giving attitude right back.
|Who's the big dog now?|
We were friends, after a fashion, and as time passed, he even let me take the lead on some of his guard duties.
|I'm Dexter on duty! Wait until Momma sees!|
It's been a year now since Mango made his final journey. Sure, I miss him sometimes. How could I not?
Which is all to say, I've been a blogging kind of guy from day one. I'm not as practiced as the RH in getting Momma to post, but I do try and that's the best a chap can do.
