Archie VS. Godzilla


In addition to chasing balls and my brother's tail, one of my favorite pastimes is playing Hide-and Seek.

New Friends and My First Blog Tag Award

My new friends Oakley and Swisher have tagged and bestowed me with the Oops I Ate It Award!
Here are the rules for accepting this...

When accepting this award, you must blog about the food you have stolen when your humans were not watching…If you have never stolen any food, you must be a really good pup!! You can accept this yummy tray of cookies as your reward! Next add the logo of this award to your Blog (optional), then nominate at least 5 other furry blogs and let them know by leaving a message on their Blogs…

Since I am a really good pup, I have never stolen my pawrents' food. Or maybe it is because I am spoiled and if I wait patiently I am given tastes of everything, and thus do not have to resort to stealing. But I have stolen my brothers & sisters' dog food and treats before. And I was recently reprimanded  for stealing and chewing on a used band-aid.
Thanks, Oakley & Swisher, for the yummy award!
P.S.: This is a secret, but my mama likes to snack on dry cereal like Apple Jacks while watching TV in bed, and she will let me eat a couple too. Papa thinks this snacking is hilarious because sometimes Mama has a Froot Loop or Apple Jack stuck in her hair, or on her face, when she wakes up in the morning.

Pantsless Smarty Pants

I recently read an article about dogs' intelligence being similar to that of a toddlers' understanding of vocabulary and math. Here is a link to this interesting article: Dog I.Q. Article

So, in addition to my leisure reading of books like Marley & Me, I am now studying the dictionary to expand my vocabulary, and to be able to understand the words that the pawrents spell when they are having sneaky, secret conversations. Brother Catfish already knows what they mean when they say the letters O.U.T.S.I.D.E. and T.R.E.A.T. I think they talk about the ball by spelling it out and I am determined to learn what they are saying.

Reading makes me sleepy though.

P.S.: Marley & Me  was recommended to my Mama by her friend Linda (who also loves to read), and it was purchased with a book gift certificate from Linda. Thank you again, Linda!
