How do I be a boyfriend?

The flags are flying high for you today, Jackson.

Well boys and girls, I have to tell you that I still have a major crush on Gucci.

Since Asta unleashed my teenage love hormones at Snickers' party, I just can't stop thinking about Gucci and how pretty she is, and how amazing it would be to run free in the park with her and chase birds and squirrels and hunt for sticks. I dream about that almost every night. I also dream about sharing my kibble and cookies with her, and ripping up some stuffies together. Now that I'm a bigboy Boxer, I'm allowed to play with stuffies... I'd absolutely let her play in my stick pile too. Oh, that would put me on the hot tamale train for sure ! I never share my Funky Monkey stuffy but I would definitely lend it to Gucci if she asked me to.

Oooooooooh I am soooooooo in looooove.

I know Gucci feels the same way because she said so on her blog. See?

"That makes me happier and more giggle-y than the Redskin's win last night.
Silly handsome Mr. Chef, of courseeee you can be my boyfriend!!!"

She called me silly! Oooh Gawd - she really likes me.

So I'm officially Gucci's boyfriend -- now what do I do??

I'm going to ask Petey because he has a way with girls and he's even gone on dates. I sure hope he can give me some tips on how to be romantic and clever and thoughtful and attractive. Am I supposed to smell nice or stink? Should my furs be shiny or scruffy? Should I ever let her see that sometimes I pee ... like a girl? I just don't know...

In the meantime, I sent Gucci Poochie these roses and a pink bone just to let her know that I'm thinking about her. I've seen humans do that (except I don't think they send bones), and it makes the ladies feel very special and flattered. So I hope Gucci is happy when the florist arrives.

Since I'm barely two years old, and I've never been a boyfriend before, I could really use some advice right now. Hey Petey - this is a callout to YOU... and anyone else who can tell me how to be a boyfriend.

I'm waiting right here for your advice .....

the 4 Bs said...

hey Chef, that is so exciting that Gucci wants to be your girlfriend. we wish we could help you out with some advice, but we have never had girlfriends - not one of us. we've had crushes, but they were all rebuffed. isn't that sad? so we are probably confirmed bachelors by now. good luck with love!


Asta Marie said...

Gee Chef.

It's great that you have been bitten by the love bug....I have not met your Gucci but I shall have to sniff on over to her sounds like she likes you too and that's really nice...I hope you both can go out and have a good time...don't ask my little boy Dewey for any advice....he just never thinks any boy is good enough for any of the girls right now...especially me...Although Jake of Florida has asked me out...I have not told Dewey....please keep it a secret....sssshhhh

Oh what's a Mother to do?????

Asta Marie, WFT

Asta said...

I think she will looooove those flowews and bone!!! You aweady awe aa gweat boyfwiend
smoochie kisses

Petey said...

Ahh, Chef, well-done! I kinda feel like a matchmaker here (don't tell her I told you, but I kinda suggested that she might want to walk by your blog and give you a sniff!)

While I'm still dating (two more to go before my big decision...), here's what I've learned.

1.) Lots of compliments, but sincere ones.

2.) Don't expect them to share their food or treats with you. Bring plenty for both of you.

3.) Don't get too forward with your to let them make the first move. (For reference, see Dewey and Lacie video!)

4.) If they ever ask you if they look fat, immediately say NO! Even before they finish the question. "If anything, you might be a tad skinny. Have some more dessert!"

5.) Surprise them with lots of presents for no reason.

And finally, call the day after the date!

Hooray!!! Maybe Eric and I should open that canine dating service after all...

Your pal,


Gucci said...

My Dearest Chefster,

You sure know how to make this boxergirl baroooooo and blush!!!

I don't know anything bout sticks but I would totally love for you to teach me the fine art of stick playin'. :]

The flowers are so pretty and I'm showing them off to everyone including my Mommy. She's waaay jealous that I have a boyfriend and she doesn't. Hehehe sawrrry Mommy!!

xxxxxxxoooooo ['n lix 'n stuff].

Deefor said...

You sure are romantic Chef. I've never been in love (unless you count that giant T-bone from the doggie bag last week) so I have a lot to learn. Are the flowers for peeing on?


p.s. I had some trouble opening your blog but now it's OK. I told my mom we need a new computer.

happy said...

Way to go, Chef! So happy for you! Gucci sounds lovely!

Noah the Airedale said...

Hey Chef,
I'm a boyfriend you know...yep my girl Ellie the dale lives in Melbourne. We have a long distance relationship but it works. We even met once. I think you'll do a good job at being a boyfriend especially if you buy Gucci a pressie.


Pedro said...


I don't think you need any advice on how to be a boyfriend. It seems like you're doing a good job already - complimenting the girl, sending her flowers, buying her a gift. You could write the book!


The Puppies said...

We don't think you need advice either because you are doing a good job! (at least Marshall says you are-- he has a girlfriend that comes over and plays with him sometimes and says you are on the right track!)

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

A girlfriend!!!! Wow Chef, a GIRL!!!! Hehehe, have you even had the chance to cordially sniff her butt yet? She won't impeed on our friendship will she? Hehehe...ooooo have you kissed her yet? Smoochy Smoochy Smoochy!

You would be proud of me today! While my human was taking me for a walk it started to get really hot out, and right when I didn't think I could go on any longer, I stumbled upon a stick! A HUGE ONE! So I carried it half way home. I brought lots of smiles to the faces of people on their way to work! Hehehehe!

Looks like you didn't have to wait long for some advice. But you appear to be doing something right, so why worry needlessly? Just be yourself.

Asta said...

Peanut said...

Hey Chef our google reader wasn't telling us you had updated. I made mom delete you and re add you so hopefully it is working now. My best advice on the boyfriend thing is tell them how pretty they are and send them lots of gifts.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

You go Chef, hope you'll win Gucci's heart very soon by taking Petey's advices. I'll learn from him too.
I am about 2 years old, healthy handsome Maltese, single and available. Should I start dating too?

Eric said...

Chef! Wow! Dating Gucci...must be a classy girlie withe expensives tastes so the pink bone and roses will be pawfect.Maybe a pink stick after the next date? And remember to call her on the old dog and bone very day. Seems like you are a natural so I'll be watching your moves dude to pick up some advice for myself..

Wags, Eric

Sophie Brador said...

Chef! I love your upside down photo. Congrats on your new love.


Lenny said...

Wow Chef, congratulations on your lady friend! Gucci is definitely a cutie. I'm not sure I have any boyfriend advice because I've never had a girlfriend, but I'm sure giving her bones is a great idea!

The proceeds from ALL of the items go to the Search Dog Foundation! Thanks for asking!

Your friend, Lenny

CoCo said...

Wow are definitely Googgly Eyed In Love! Sharing cookies and your favorite monkey too...I think you are doing all the right things so far. I would definitely consider love barks, a new designer stuffie toy, some new pawfume, new diamond pawlery collar...? Gifts are a good idea. My Mama seems to like receiving those. Good luck in wooing Gucci.


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Chef, you got me!
I have to admit that my mom did a little " rearrangement" in the cold box like moving some of the vegetable down to the meat box, that's all, no cleansing! no cleansing!
My sweety? Hmm, should I mention her now? Hint: She has just come back from her European trip with her brother and her Mom. Top secret, please!

Rambo said...

we think you are doing a fine job already! You sent flowers! I bet you scored some brownie points for that. I don't have a girlfriend yet (you know I tried to steal Gucci but that didn't work out) but I do have a sister and she likes it when you call her "pretty", so maybe try that!

Niamh said...


You seem to have the right idea with the compliments, flowers and bone. I am sure Gucci will be smitten.

Speaking as a girl with many boyfriends, I would recommend that when you two meet up that you not roll around on your back exposing yourself to her! Try some gentle sniffs on the side of her muzzle and a few play bows. Good luck with the romance.

Your friend,

Georgeous said...

Oh boy Chef, I have no experience here, Mum shouts 'GENTLE' to me when I play with girls (& boys but mainly with girls)... so I guess, I trust my Mum So be gentle would be my advice...

Deetz said...

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh Chef you need to Wooo her. That is what humans do.. Perhaps whispering in her ear and bonbon's

There must be something in the air...

Bella the Boxer said...

Hey Chef....Go for jewelry!! My Dad gave my Mom some pretty pearl-and-diamond earrings for her birthday, and she's been giggling like a schoolgirl ever since. Jewelry, I tell you.

xoxo - Bella

Mango said...

Chef - Being a boyfriend is hard work (especially if you are friends with several gals at once). Just keep posting those extra cute photos of yourself. You'll be fine.


Cairo The Boxer said...

You are so cute! I don't know how to be a boyfriend but I am sure my boyfriend Cubby the boxer does.

I know he always promotes my blog when ever he can and puts pictures of me on his blog

Hope this helps
