Sunsets and Carrots

I especially enjoy sitting in an open doorway or out on the deck watching nature. Tonight I enjoyed a beautiful sunset while a cool breeze blew in. I smell rain! Days of rain I believe, so I'll enjoy this lovely sunlit evening right now.

That bright orange sky makes me think of carrots!! I'd love one about now!

All I have to do is think about it and she obeys! Who's the master??

It's 12:34 am, my peeps are nestled in their beds and I'm ready to do a little blogging and net surfing. My nap earlier refreshed me! It's not like I get a turn at the computer when they're awake!

Things they don't know won't hurt them. A little mystery can be good. Like for instance, you know what I like to do sometimes just for a good chuckle? I go into the fridge late at night and if there is an open package of lunch meat, I take each slice out, lick both sides, set it on the floor and do the same to each slice of Bologna or cotto salami and then put it all back in the wrapper and in the fridge. They NEVER know!! Cracks me up.

Just mentioning food.... I could go for something,... popcorn or a nice chicken breast. I do have my favorites. People can be so dense can't they? They think because we're dogs we'll eat whatever and be eternally grateful. I have my likes and dislikes. Big surprise right? Personally I'm not into anything with nuts. I don't like nuts in any form. Nor do I enjoy potatoes, baked, fried or mashed. Raw either, though an occasional chip does pass my lips. Don't even get me started on lima beans. Yuck! Hate grapes, they're a bad joke exploding in your mouth like that. I've rolled a few under the couch and left them. Don't like raw spinach, though I'll eat lettuce, tomato's, corn, peas,and my favorite vegetable would be carrots. I love apples, berries, breads and of course meat goes without saying. I do enjoy milk and I love ice cubes. But only if there isn't anything else to finish off. Cubes that have soaked in pop or tea are especially good.

The really idiotic thing is that because we'll eat something that has spilled onto the floor people will expect it every time and even put stuff there for us to finish off. I REFUSE to be a hoover for anyone! I don't do crumbs!! Seriously. The other day Mary spilled peas on the floor and was shocked I wouldn't eat them. "I thought he liked peas" I heard her say. Yes, in my bowl I love them. Setting on the kitchen floor in front of the trash can...not so much. I won't lick up spilled pop or really any liquid. Yuck! That surprises her too.
For you young pups out there, people ARE trainable. You just need to show them you won't budge on the important stuff.

I have more to teach.. but I'm hungry. Think I'll go check out what's in the fridge. I wouldn't recommend coming by for lunch tomorrow. :)

Human Humor

Don't you just love human humor? I know it's something I have to put up with. For example, as a small puppy I'd occasionally stick my tough out while sleeping. My people thought that was cute. Not just cute, somewhat hilarious. So much so they ran for the camera whenever they saw it. What's the big deal? We all have one. Sometimes when I'd wake up from one of those wonderful luxurious puppy naps my tounge would still be sticking out. Just ever so slightly. Is that funny? Apparently.

Do they suppose they sleep pretty? Wouldn't you love to snap a photo of them right after they wake up? Scary thought eh? They have NO idea how bad they look from our angle, even on a good day!! If only we had thumbs.

Let Me Introduce Myself

My name is Kris. I'm a dog. I think of myself as somewhat elevated above a human. I know I'm being modest. I don't need to argue this with any of my species, but for any human who might drop by let me explain. I forgive your ignorance easily, I'm always ready to play, love and especially share a meal with you.

I want this blog to be a place for dogs to come and share thoughts and commonalities. Cats are welcome too as well as birds. I have a special bond with birds. They like to share their seed with me and I rather like it. The only bird I find odd is the Robin. When they come running out from under a fir tree it freaks me out. They don't' seem to know where they're going, they run all over the place... well I digress here.

People are welcome here too. I'd like people to understand us better. There is this myth that we just nap, eat and bark and that is just not the case. There is room for mutual understanding and I feel this blog may be a good place to work on that.

In the days, weeks and months ahead I'll tell you more about myself, my people and my environment. I hope you'll visit often and share!
