Barkers (Another Bad Poem by Bitey Dog)

Cairn terrier sitting on tile floor

We bark in the morning.

We bark in the night.

We bark to surprise folks

And cause them a fright.

A squirrel on the railing

Deserves an “Awoo!”

Till our barkers stop working

Our job is not through.

Bitey and Toby’s next book is close to being done.  Hooray!  Everyone can be glad that I haven’t posted in a while because I would likely have taken over Bitey’s blog to whine and complain about how I don’t understand formatting and how my word processor is not working.  (As you can see, I did not do that today.  Bwahahaha!)

Before the next book comes out, you may want to read PoopiterPoopiter tells of Geordie and Toby’s first year together and how Toby kept trying to kill himself.  (He tried again last week.  Different toad, though.)

The Church Bell – by Geordie D. Dog

Statue of Christ and children

Our church has many ding-a-lings

That come to mass each week.

The answers to life’s questions

They often come to seek.

Instead of thinking proFOUND thoughts

They like to kneel and chant.

And that is all we have today.

That is Geordie’s rant.

The Serenade

I took my family for a walk.

It was so very long.

When I got home I ate a lot.

It was so very wrong.

Now in my bed I lie and toot

Until the church bells dong.

Birds fly through my noxious cloud

And quickly lose their song.


(Yes, it’s been another Alpo day.)

A Trail of Evidence

This is what I found after a suspiciously quiet moment.

Two gloves lying on the floor

Blue puppy is to blame for the gloves on the floor.

It wasn’t me, Mom.  You can clearly see it was Blue Puppy.

Toby loves Blue Puppy, but I am finding that he is the scapegoat for a lot of things that go wrong around here.  Things where Toby is somehow nearby….


Don’t forget to pick up a copy of Poopiter.

Bitey Dog and Toby in POOPITER

Poopiter is available at Amazon.   (Some people donate their copies to their local children’s libraries or the children’s ward at the hospital.  Kids love reading about naughty puppies.)

You’ll want to be caught up on the boys’ adventures before they start their next one which is coming up soon.  I have been working on this next book for a very long time, and it looks like I am in the final stretch.  Yeah,  I’m happy!

Visiting the Funeral Home

Picture of a funeral home

On Monday, the boys and I accompanied Grandma to the funeral home to say goodbye to another friend and neighbor we have lost this year.  (Well, we haven’t lost them.  We know where they are, but we can’t see them from where we’re standing.)

The pups and I waited outside while Grandma went inside to pay her respects.  While we were out there, person after person came out of the building and straight over to Geordie and Toby.  They had to greet and be greeted.  They told me stories of their own beloved pups – both those who had passed and those who had recently joined the family.  Every person left with a big smile on his or her face.

Children especially seem cheered and distracted from the grief around them when there is a puppy at the funeral home.  Maybe more could consider having therapy dogs on site for those who need the comfort.  I know I would want to visit the therapy dog.

We’re puppies.  We can fix anything!!

A Little Bragging

I just had to take a moment to brag about my nephew.  He got news this week that he received two scholarships to the school of his choice.  Now his entire education will be paid for.  (Yippee!)  In addition, he is an ROTC member, so he will be serving his country and community.

It is nice to hear about young people being rewarded for their hard work rather than hearing about bribes being paid for what hasn’t been earned.  Congratulations, nephew.  We are so proud of you!

Geordie says:  It’s a good thing that all they gave at puppy school was certificates of completion.  Otherwise, I would have been in deep doo doo.

I’ve Got to Get Me One of These!

Not my picture.  It is borrowed from another post.

Geordie says:

A friend just posted this picture of a coyote vest.  Actually, this particular ensemble has a coyote vest, coyote bristles and a spiked collar.   Not only would this protect me from neighborhood coyotes but it would keep Mom from hugging me all the time.  Honestly, she is like Pepe Le Pew, and I am poor Penelope.  It’s awful!

Anyone want to transfer some kibble to my PayPup account?  I’ll pay ya back.  Honest.  (*cough, cough, hack*)
