Getting an Appointment

My previously well-coiffed Toby has been looking a bit shaggy, so I decided to get in touch with his groomer. When I did, they told me that since Toby is considered a dangerous animal only the owner is willing to work with him, and she is booked until January.

Looks like “Santa” won’t be bringing any gifts for Toby this year. All “his” money will be tied up in tips and gifts for the groomer to try to bribe her into seeing us again.

I don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m a perfect angel!

Jurassic Cuke

Hey guys, look at this cuke. It's positively Jurassic!
After you eat that, it will be like that movie where the T Rex eats the guy with the Sat phone. Then later eeryone hears it ringing, and they have to dig through that huge mountain of....
Enough! Sheesh, why couldn't I have girls? It wouldn't matter. All dogs like poop stories!

Want me to tell you a poopcentric bedtime tale?

I’ve got a million of ’em!

Very large garden cucumber

I drew this story after last year’s crop. That year we got exceptionally large cukes.

This year’s crop leaves a bit to be desired.

OK, so there aren’t any poop stories in Dream Our World, but there are plenty of other things to laugh at! Visit the Museum of the Imagination with Bitey and Toby and view the world of art from a canine perspective.

What’s in a Name?

Oh geez, Toby.  What is Peppermint going to think?  Her name is Zelda...or maybe Priscilla...and we're soulmates!
According to this tag, her name is "Fernando".

These two have spent so much time together that they are starting to look like each other.

I do worry about Peppermint, though. I’m sure her feelings are hurt.

ASL Alien Hand Pillow with Galaxies

Tell them you love them without saying a word! (Right, Toby?) Give someone you care about this stellar pillow with an E.T. hand signing “I Love You”. Not only is it a loving reminder, it is also a great conversation piece.

Alien Hand Pillow is available from my shop.

Skip the Pie

Two nights ago we had a freeze warning, so I brought the decorative pumpkins inside.

And what did my wondering eyes see then

but a naughty brown dog chewing off all their stems.

Nom..nom..nom...

.

Aagh! Gladys!

Aagh! We’d rather just have our stems chewed!

See what my naughty boys have been up to when you pick up a copy of Dream Our World. Inside, Geordie and Toby visit the museum of their dreams and enjoy a day of unsupervised fun.

Come On Guys, Let’s Go!

Come on, guys! Let's go!

 

Ugh, why do we have to suffer whenever she overindulges?

Come on Toby.  Let’s be fair.  The real reason you are being taken on three walks a day is because you chewed up my book, ate a note pad, tipped over the trash can, climbed up on the bed and stole a hankie, ran through the house with my underwear…do I need to go on?

Bored terrier lies next to his tennis ball.

No, I know.

After my scale-crunching last post, I have been cutting back on portions and walking more (all the things panicked chubby humans do).  Today I checked, and I found that I had lost -4 pounds.

I guess with everything else in the world being upside down, I shouldn’t be surprised that the laws of physics are too.

Everyone’s a Critic

People laugh at me for leaving things in my trash can because I know Toby is going to climb in and make a mess.  The problem is that if I don’t leave anything in there, he will go after something I care about.  Last night he decided that my trash can wasn’t interesting enough and chewed up a sketch book.

Toby innocently stands there, wondering what mommy is looking at.

OK, so maybe I chewed up some papers , but I definitely wouldn’t put a baby sister in a box.

Toby Gets Something for Christmas

So, who is this Santa fellow again, and what is it I am supposed to be doing for him?

Um, I might not be too worried about that if I were you.

Toby has been as wound up and boisterous as any child these past few weeks…so much so that I wasn’t sure tht Santa would bring him anything.  Then Toby pulled his act together and was a perfect little angel puppy last night.  If Santa works like Christianity, then a last minute repentance is still enough to ensure a reward.

Don’t pee on the tree, and you might just get some tennis balls!

**********************************

We are all waiting with great anticipation not so much for a visit from Santa but a posting of a certain Malt’s Christmas prank.

Blue Puppy Gets Caught

 

Blue Puppy gets his paw caught as he tries to escape anyone noticing he raided the trash can.

Oh dear, what’s this?

Blue Puppy gets his paw caught as he flees from raiding the trash can.

It looks like Blue Puppy got caught as he tried to run away after raiding the trash can.

Toby innocently stands there, wondering what mommy is looking at.

What are we going to do with him, Ma?

Toby innocently looks on, silently passing judgement on Blue Puppy's antics.

I don’t know where he gets this.

Toby is getting smart.  He is making sure that Blue Puppy takes the blame for everything now that Santa is watching.
