As the dog days of summer wind down, here are a few thoughts that I have pondered lately…
- Almost missed National Dog Day. They didn’t seem to do much to promote it. I think it came and went without many people (or dogs) noticing. Is it an annual thing? I had never heard of it before. Nowhere near as much publicity as Shark Week.
- Dad got me some business cards from ABC Printing here in Englewood, FL. Thomas did a pretty good job setting them up and printing them. I’ve passed a few out to my dog park friends.
- We are all saddened to hear that Grandpa Cliff is really sick. Please say a prayer for him if you can. He always liked to give Mac and me samples while he ate his food.
I do it all the time. I know it bothers Dad because he tries to figure out what I’m trying to say. He is always convinced that I have some kind of serious need whenever I do it. He doesn’t know that sometimes I get bored and stare at him for the fun of it, just to mess with him. It can be a lot of fun and a good source of entertainment.
He’ll start asking me questions: What is it, buddy? Do you need to go out? Are you hungry? Do you have to go potty? Did you hear something outside? I try to look more urgent just to get to him. He figures we dogs only have a few basic needs and when I give him the stare, he goes down through the list.
