My Enemy the Alligator

Alligator 6

I’m a relatively new Florida resident and I have to be honest with you, I have never seen an alligator before. I’m told I don’t want to ever see an alligator but I’m still curious. They say the bigger alligators are not afraid of us dogs and will even try to catch us and make a meal out of us. That doesn’t sound like a very pleasant way to go!

I guess that’s a good reason not to like alligators but that’s not the real reason I don’t like them. The real reason I don’t like alligators is because I’m a water-loving dog and I like to go swimming. In Florida there are lots and lots of ponds, lakes, rivers, water holes and all kinds of places where a dog can get wet and go swimming. Continue reading

Can I Just Get Back To Being A Dog?

Dad and Heidi have had me working my tail off finding out about this whole blogging thing.

We’re up to our ears in SEO, RSS, HTML, PPC and POOP.  Oops, that last one may have been my own.  Hehe.

 

 

Word Cloud

It can be pretty daunting to go out there and research stuff on the internet.  There is soooo much to sort through!   And so much of it is a lot of doo doo if you pardon my French.

Speaking of French, most of those words they use go right over my head.  Hypertext Transfer Protocol?    How about Sit?  Or Stay?  I may not do them when I’m asked, but at least I know what they mean!

I just want to go back to being a dog, where all I have to worry about is chasing balls and barking at strangers and cool stuff like that.

More Dog Park Friends

Yesterday I was commenting on some of the friends I had made at the dog park and how I would add some pictures of them when I got them.  Well, today when Dad and I went to the dog park, Dad took a few pictures of two of the dogs who have been there almost every day that we have gone there.

I’d like to show you my buddies Miles and Buster.  They are both pretty cool and Dad thinks their owners are nice.  He told some of the people at the dog park about my blog so I hope they can get online and see pictures of their dogs.

I told you that we are trying to increase the traffic that visits us here on the website.  One of the things we hope to do is have a healthy following of regular readers.  That’s why we try to invite nice people like those at the dog park.  They have made Dad and I feel welcome from the first day we got there.

IMG_4874As many of you know, Dad and I moved from Boise, Idaho to Englewood, Florida recently. Things are a little bit different here.

I have a big backyard I can look at from my back porch.  I like it because there is nobody’s house behind us and it goes on for a long ways.

It rains a lot here. It’s a good thing I’m not very afraid of thunder babies. There is lots of thunder and lightning here.

We don’t always get a big storm but we almost always hear thunder and lightning every day. The temperature is high and so is the humidity but there is often a cool breeze that blows off the ocean.

I share this house with a little puppy named Mac. He is a handful. He is three months old and he weighs about 150 pounds (actually 24 lbs.)  I think he is going to weigh about 600 pounds when he is full-grown.

Pardon Our Dust

Dear Readers,

Just like me this blog is going through some changes. We hope it will not be too distracting while we do this. Dad has enlisted the help of Heidi to work on some social media things that we hope will make our blog popular.

We are going to be showing up on Facebook (I already have a Facebook page but we’re going to expand it). We will have a Twitter account and an Instagram account and you’ll be able to see videos of me on Youtube! Yes, we are going to be jumping into this social media thing with full force.

There will be places to join me on all sorts of adventures. Of course I still plan to make this my main home. I want to be able to tell you about my life and what I’m going through. With some of these other forms of media, we hope to increase our following.

New Home

Hi Everyone!

I was gone and now I’m back.  I moved across the country recently.  It’s a long story that I will try to fill in details for shortly.  For now, here are a few pictures of me and my new roommate.  His name is Mac and he grows about one pound a day.  I think Dad and Heidi are going to put him in the zoo when he gets to 700 lbs!
