A mysterious project

...Uh, why are you staring at me so intently?

Hey...uh, what's up, dogs.  My human is behaving somewhat strangely today, studying me very closely from all angles. 

--What??  What are you looking at??  And why are you playing with clay??

You're being very mysterious.  All right, fine, keep your secrets.  I'll figure it out for myself.

Hmm...wire.  For some kind of support or framework, I guess? 


Interesting.  So that squashed bean-looking shape goes on top? 

This reminds me of something.  I can't put my paw on it right now, but it definitely reminds me of something.


What's this? One last white piece?

Ohhhhh...it's a tail!  I get it now.

Hey, why did you place the tail so far to the right--oh.  OOOOOHH.
Now I understand.  Are you entering Ajdin's Art Contest for Humans, by any chance?...
Okay, that's cool.  Just remember to pay my sculpture-sitting fee in bacon if you win anything, all right?...

A dog-safe dessert

Hey, what's up, dogs?  I hope you're all having a great summer.

...Eh?  What's this?  

My human just plunked this plate down in front of me.  Some sort of...pastry?  Looks kinda exotic.  

Hey, Grandpa?  Do you have any idea what this is?  
"Ohhhhh, yes, laddie.  If I'm not mistaken, this is an assortment of BARKlava."

BARKla-what?

"BARKlava, laddie.  It's a Greek or Middle Eastern dessert.  It's delicious."

Patch said, "Did somebody say...dessert?"
"A dessert?"  Spunky sounded concerned.  "Does it contain any chocolate?  'Cause you know that's not good for us dogs."

"No, lads, that's the beauty of it!  This BARKlava contains no chocolate.  Finally, a dessert we can eat safely."

Oh wow.  Our human must be thinking ahead to the annual performance evaluation.  Well, let's dig in and try it, shall we?

See you guys next time...

An out of this world postcard

Hey, what's up, dogs?  Recently got a postcard from our friend Ajdin, who went to the Air and Space Museum and saw the Space Shuttle Discovery.  
I wonder how his bid to become an astrobear is going?  I know it's a very competitive selection process, and there's a lot of rigorous training involved.  I'll keep my paws crossed for you, buddy!

Till next time...

Field trip--MINEFAIRE

Hey, what's up, dogs?  Good to see you!  Sorry about the slowdown in updates recently.  My human claims to have been busy.  Tsk...this won't reflect well on her yearly evaluation.  Thumbs down!  (Er...if I had opposable thumbs, that is.)

But anyway...today's post is about something completely different from anything I've done before.  This weekend, my human took me to MINEFAIRE, which is a convention for the popular video game Minecraft.  If you don't know what a convention is, it's a very strange human custom where people gather in huge numbers to celebrate their common interest in a subject.


Anyway, here we go...Uh-oh.  This is not a good start! Please tell me you bought the tickets in advance...

You did?  OK, whew.  That was close! Here we go...

Wow, look at all these people gathered at the main stage!  The music was so loud my human could feel it thumping in her chest.  Crazy humans...
Naturally, there were a lot of kids around.  Some of them were adding to a Minecraft-themed Lego display...
...some were getting their faces painted like Minecraft characters...

...and still others were helping to assemble the "world's largest Lego puzzle"!  Wow, that's going to be something to see when it's done.


And of course, there was merchandise.  Some of it came in colorful cardboard boxes, like the ones below.

(Um, do they have a permit to keep all this ordnance here?  I hope they have the bomb squad on speed dial.  I think I'm going to keep my distance, just in case...) 

Wait!  Over there!  Look!  I see fellow stuffies! 

There were just TONS of them waiting to go home with some lucky human...
I made a new friend!  I named him Trigger the Minecraft horse.  Hey, do you mind if I take your picture for my blog?

"Neigh!"

I guess that means "Nay," or "no" in standard English.  Sweet!  Smile for the camera...


I made another new friend--a fellow canine this time.  This is Rufus.  Hey, how's it been, waiting around for a human to adopt you?

"Ruff!"
I know, it can be tough.  Don't worry, I'm sure you'll find a good home soon.  Stay positive! 

Well, that's all for now, folks.  I hope you enjoyed my first-ever video game convention.  It's got me thinking...maybe I should find some other bacon enthusiasts and create a Bacon-themed convention.  What do you think?..

Until next time!

Find Whopper!

 Hey, what's up, dogs?  Cool news story I found on the Internet:

Burger King trained guide dog to sniff out Whoppers

I am actually not surprised by this story at all, since we dogs have amazing noses.  I think it's much more newsworthy that the dog didn't EAT the Whopper before his human could. 

But anyway, enough editorializing.  Check out the story for yourself--it's entertaining!

Birthday card

Hey, what's up, dogs?  Time for another mail call.  Today it's a card from Little Fox, wishing me a Happy Birthday!  
I really like this card.  These dogs are all dressed up and ready for a good time.  "Party animal," indeed! 

Let's see what L.F. wrote on the inside:


Yes indeed, L.F....that would be an ideal way to celebrate.  Thanks for the card!

Have a good week, everybody!
