Now I think I have done the first three!  Thank you once again, Charlie and I have left a message on her blog.  Please click on Charlie's link in the first sentence to learn more about this fascinating pup!

Now to answer the questions Charlie left for me:

1.  Do you do anything that really annoys your peeps and what is it that you do??
BOL!  Well I do lots of things that annoy the peeps.  I like to stick my cold, wet  nose in mom's face at midnight or some other early time in the morning.  I roll in stinky things that defy all description of vileness.  I dig massive craters in the yard.  I love running through the mud and tracking that into the house.  I don't always come when I am called, but prefer to take a message and get back to the peeps! Oh, so many, many things!
2. Have you ever escaped from your yard and if so where did you go??
Well, we don't have a fenced a yard so I guess I have escaped then!  Last year I took myself on a walkabout without mom knowing where I went!  I came back about 2 hours later and she was frantic.  Dunno where I went, but I was covered in mud and ticks when I came home.  I probably took myself down to the river, but don't tell mom!
3. Have you ever caught a critter and what did you do with it if you did?? Did you eat it??
Have I?  Well most certainly I have!  I just caught a deer mouse the other day and it sure was tasty.  I am an excellent rodent catcher and I try to keep those vermin away from my house.  Of course, my choice of eating these rodents also means I get dewormed monthly!

4. What’s your very favourite food in the whole world and are you allowed to eat it??
I lubs me some cabbage!  Yes, you heard right!  I love cabbage!  Whenever someone gets the cabbage outta the fridge I come and sit beside them and wait until I get a piece of it.  I just love the inner leaves of the cabbage and I do get it quite often.
5.  If you’re a bloke do you cock to pee or do you squat like a Sheila??   
 I squat like a Sheila and is that so bad?  On the other hand, the peeps first dog, Abby, would lift her leg to pee.  Go figure!

6. Do you drink out of the big white bowl in the bathroom?  
 I am not allowed to drink outta the big white bowl in the bathroom but I do have a very nice water bucket that is always kept full me!  Oh, and I like to drink water outta the ditch, or the field, or on the road or where ever!
7. Have you ever had a go at agility, flyball, lure coursing, etc. etc. etc. and how good at it were/are you????
 No, I have never done anything like agility, flyball, etc, but I did take Obedience Classes twice does that count?

8. Have you EVER competed at Westminster, Crufts or the equivalent in your country, or even dreamt about being a competitor at Westminster or Crufts etc.?
I have never competed at any of those competitions, but I think I should!  Don't cha think I'm cute enough to enter in any of those competitions?  I just know I could charm the judges!

9. Has your Mom and Dad ever left you behind while they went away for a holiday. Where did they leave you and how did you greet them when they returned??  
Yup, the peeps went away last summer and they left me at a doggie kennel.  I had so much fun there!  I was so tired when they went to pick me up that I virtually slept, therefore ignoring them, for about 3 days!
10. Is there any peep or other of your own kind that you really hate and why??
I am one of those pups, that absolutely loves everyone!  To me everyone is a friend and I enthusiastically greet everyone!  I also wanna play with every dog that I meet!  I am a lover not a fighter!

11.  Do you get raw meaty bones to eat and if so what kind of bones are your very favourite??
I got a couple of boxes of deer bones from a hunter friend of the peeps and I just love them.  Those are the only meaty bones I have ever had and they sure are tasty.  Does eating critters I caught count in this question?

Now to list 11 random things about me!  Oh my!  This is so hard and I just hope I don't bore anyone.  My apologies to all if I do bore you!

1. I am a rescue from a Northern community in my province.  I am one of the lucky ones that was brought into a rescue and found a loving home.  Many other pups from there are not so lucky.

2. I was very sick for the first several months I was in my furever home, but I am lucky I had peeps that got me the best care.

3. As indicated above, I love everyone!  I will greet everyone with the same enthusiasm and you are automatically my friend.

4. Mom can't decide if I am the laziest or just the most stubborn or, perhaps, a combination of the two, pups she has ever owned.

5. I do not like getting brushed!  That is torture!

6. Also, why do I need my toenails trimmed!?  This is also torture and the only mom can get my toenails cut is by lying on top of me to pin me down and then she proceeds to trim my toenails.

7. I am the greatest landscape designer you have ever met and I dig random craters and tunnels all over the place.

8. I am also a wonder interior decorator.  I achieve my master pieces by tracking mud, dirt, saliva and hair throughout the house.  I make some very precious Monet's on the windows with my nose prints.

9. I will take treats from mom and then "bury" them someplace in my house for safe keeping.

10. I do not like baths and do not understand why bathing in the ditch or river is seen as a bad thing!  I love the stank I get from that water.

11.  I absolutely love to chase birds and do it every chance I can.

Ok, how bored is everyone?  Wake up please!  Hello!  Anyone still out there!

Now I has to nominate someone!  Oh golly!  It looks like almost everyone I know has already gotten this award, so if you are reading this, TAG YOUR IT! 

Like I said, my secretary doesn't always follow the rules, so when it comes to making up new questions, well we like Charlie's so much, so we are gonna use them!

Now to let the nominees know we tagged them.  Well if you haven't already and would like to take part, please let me know in the comments!  

Thanks again Charlie for the nomination and I hope everyone will check out Charlie's blog!


  1. Well, I learned a few things bout yu Buddy that I dint already know.
    Don't that cabbage give yu the toots? It's a good treat but maybe yur already so stinky, yur peepoles don't even notice? bol

    1. I can be a little smelly sometimes, Zoe! I guess the peeps have just gotten used to it! But I love cabbage, what can I say!

  2. Crikey Buddy ...... how good are you?? That was great, mate!! I sure learned lots I didn't already know. Like Zoe, the cabbage thing got me. Guess what?? ....... I LOVE it too! We must be like brothers or something. I've never had it cooked but raw..... Oh My!! I can't get enough of it. Mum makes sauerkraut and I hang around her legs just waiting. AND to answer Zoe's question ...... yep ..... I get real bad gas from it but it doesn't worry me. AND I squat most of the time too. See we are like brothers. You should be allowed at Westminster, Buddy. I think they should have a cuteness award, aye??
    You kill AND eat critters???? Crikey ..... that's impressive!! AND those bones sure count in the 'do you eat bones question'. They're the ultimate bone, aye??
    You did good, Buddy ..... thanks mate!!

    1. I have always had raw cabbage as well, Charlie! Don't like the cooked stuff. Now sauerkraut sounds awesome and I think I should try it though!

      We really could be brothers, couldn't we!?
