Exchange News / I've been tagged / Nomination

June 5 /08

Something totally amazing has happened: I've been nominated for the June Awesome Blog Award over at the Dogs With Blogs Bone Zone . My pal Sparky and his Mama, Lizzy, nominated me because I make them laugh. Well, that's because I really am a funny dog! No, but really, I am honoured. I've never been nominated for anything before, and this is very unexpected. Thank you so much, Sparky and Lizzy.

Hey doggies. The International Goody Exchange packages have started to arrive!


It would be so cool if we could all share our happiness with eachother. So I've opened an album on Blogger called International Goody Exchange Central, where I will download pictures of us opening up our packages and jumping around as we rummage through all our new gifts. It's also a place where we can say thanks to our exchange partners.


I'd like to download your videos too but I don't know how. If anyone can explain it to me, I'd appreciated it.

So send me a comment when you're visuals are ready and I will paste them to the album.

You can check out Goody Exchange Album anytime... it's already up and running.

Please help spread the word by posting an announcement about the album. Thanks!

Tagging along with Moco


Moco tagged me to answer some questions about myself. The rules get posted at the beginning. At the end of the post, the player tags four or five dogs and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment letting them know they have been tagged and asks them to read your blog. Let the doggie who tagged you know when you posted your answer.
,

1. What was I doing 10 years ago? Since I'm only 20 months old, I wasn't doing anything, but I was in the making when my dogdaddy, Zeus' dogdaddy had a twinkle in his eye.
.

2. What are the 5 things on my to-do list for today? To head over to the stick pile, pull out the biggest one from underneath, drag it home, put it on my new stick pile, and go back and do the same thing all over again... then take a nap.
,

3. What snacks do I enjoy? Rawhide, pig ears, cheese, eggs, apples, cookies, sardines and beef patties. Forbidden snacks: socks, towels, pillow stuffing, flowers, cat food, wood, coins, toilet paper, used napkins, rubber .... just about anything that will fit in my garage-size mouth.
.

4. What would I do if I was a billionaire? I'd buy us a country cottage in the mountains and invite all shelter dogs to come live with us there. Then I'd buy up all the property around our city house and turn it into a huge doggie town, with big parks that have lakes and trees, a veterinarian hospital, a doggie social centre, grooming shops, dogfood grocery, a dog spa, dog coutouriers salons, dog supply stores, dog sitting services, agility and training schools, dog show arenas, ...

.

5. What are three of my bad habits? Well, mmm... ok, I'll confess. I pee on myself. When I see a squirrel or a bird, my leg just goes down and I wet myself. It's very embarrassing. Also, I am the sloppiest eater my parents have ever seen, and I slobber everywhere like a spit sprinkler.
.

6: Where are five places that I have lived? I've only lived in two places: Ormstown, Quebec, where I was born, and Montreal, where I live now.
.

7. What are five jobs I have had? I vaccum the crumbs off the kitchen floor with my suction lips, I bark at strange dogs who pass by our back yard and want to mess with my catsisters, I warm up Mama's side of the bed, and I empty the garbage pails at Papa's office if there is leftover food in them.

You are busy for one so young.

Sparky said...

Chef!

This post was awesome pawesome! I enjoyed reading all these things about you... I used to think I was the biggest fan of sticks, but when I read what's on your to-do list for today, I realized that I think you just might like sticks even more than I do... Wow!

All your forbidden foods that you enjoy are great... Especially the toilet paper, flowers, and cat food. Those things are delicious!

You wet yourself?! HA HA ha! Sorry, I couldn't help laughing... Don't be too embarrassed... But man, that's just too funny!

I hope you had a GRRRReat weekend, Chef!

Mango said...

That peeing on yourself is not cool, dude. You need to stay focused. I agree that there are many more foodies in the world than humans think. What's the problem with eating socks, rocks, and other assorteds? They are yummers!

Slobbers,
Mango

Really, what would your mamma and pappa do without you and all of your slobber licks...and really, all the hard work that you do to keep them entertained? Dang...If only we could all be like the Chef. Hehehehe. I shipped your present! Don't worry! It's all there, thought I did accidently take one of your presents, my human replaced it! Hehehe

Chef, excellent ideas for when you are rich!

And the 'peeing' issue, does that mean you have to have lots of baths?

Lola Smiles said...

Chef dude! 'stickpile' is my most fav game. I'm always stickchasing mom around the yard. It drives her batty and I'm deep trouble from going stickcrazy on her mini-maple tree! :(((

Love the photo album idea! :)

Jake of Florida said...

Hey Chef,

We just had an awesome morning op-ening all the goodies that Foley sent us. And like Agatha and Archie -- our Mom and Dogdad love love love Montreal and all of Quebec. Mom went to Summer School in Montreal when she was in high school (a very very very looooong time ago!!)

Check out our blog for copying to the album!! And thanks for all you've done.

Jake of Florida said...

Chef,

Tell your mama that it was a French summer school -- and we all lived in the dormitories where the medical students usually lived -- up a hill... being old, our Mom has forgotten the street, but she remembers climbing the hill after class. But since then (actually in late September 2001, two weeks after 9/11), she and Dogdad went to a seaport conference in Quebec City and traveled around the region.

Woofs,

Jake and Just Harry (wondering if we'll ever bark again!!)

Dewey Dewster said...

Chef....just wanted ta stop by 'n tell ya that you should be crowned Prince of Hospitality along with T-Bone for all the hard work ya both did on the International Goody Exchange....every blog I visit...is full of wonderful excitement and unparalleled doggie happiness never seen before in canine/feline 'n other-line circles...why some of us (not me though) even shared our wonderful treasures with our siblings 'n dog parents.

Now don't ya worry about peeing on yerself when ya see sumpin' cause I tell ya I watched Toby just stand in the yard yesterday and ferget ta lift his leg...'n he peed so hard it clipped the hair on his front leg and watered the grass way out in front of him...Gram had ta tell Pap ta take 'em in 'n wash his front legs before he laid on the furniture. It can happen ta the best of us..I tell ya....

Oh yeah...I was gonna thank ya again fer the marvelous idea ya both had...sit back 'n enjoy all the fun that everyone is havin'.....'n enjoy yer own goodies as well...

We love your garden, it has some lovely plants in it, our human used to have loads of plants, but they seem to be diminishing since I came along!!! Can't imagine why!

We have posted on our blog about the package exchange.
