Jamming To My IDog

Due to some unhappy associates, I am unfortunately having to stay in the snuggery this weekend. It looks like I won't be back till' Sunday, when I'll have another meeting with Mandy. In the meantime, here's a pic of me listening to some of my favorite tunes. I'm partial to Willie Nelson's Whiskey River.

Family Affair

Made a trip to the snuggery to pay my consigliere a visit. Anne gave some information that I was not at all thrilled to receive. However, after some civilized conversation, which Italians are famous for, we were able to reach an agreement. Afterwards, we shared a chew on some pig ears, and called it a night. It's always great to see an old friend.

The T.P. Czar

I enjoyed a peaceful evening with my favorite Comare last night, Miss Gracie. Isn't she just beautiful. I only had to look over my tail twice. Bottled water, Charlie Bears for an appetizer, and dog food topped with yogurt makes for the perfect meal! After grabbing a quick kiss, I sat in my favorite chair, lit my corn cob pipe, and began to read the Doggone Daily, and I was disturbed as I read about the newly appointed Czar. The article reads:

"The President appointed the honorable Sporco Culo as the Toilet Paper Czar. Mr. Sporco Culo will over see and restrict the use of all toilet paper that dogs across America waste. Each dog will only be allowed one square per successful walk. If presented with an upset stomach the Czar will give some slack. Mr. Culo quotes,

'If in need of more than one square I suggest use of a few household conveniences: the obvious carpet, a freshly cut lawn, your master's passenger seat, and if in complete desperation your masters pillow case.' Dogs across America are concerned with this new law. However, the President assures us that all will be fine.

'With these new restrictions much paper will be saved. Thus, improving the environment and halting global warming. I am thankful for your cooperation, and don't be afraid to share your square, God bless...What is that little piece of land called again?' "

Soothing Reflections

Wow, look at all these posts! This blog's hotter than Hobby Lobby's Michael Jackson's commemorative poster! Well, after taking care of business down by the river, I couldn't help but admire the flowing water. It's so relaxing to watch the pure water run over the jagged rocks, smoothing out their imperfections. As I looked down into the stream, and I saw myself looking back, I thought of all the deeds I had committed, and I thought...I just thought...Damn, I'm one good looking Shih-Tzu.

Down By The Pier

First off, I'd like to wish my Madre bella a happy birthday! Check out her beautiful pic!

Business as usual last night, however, some of my clients decided to go for a swim. Me, I just sat back, and enjoyed the wonderful sunset. With this kind of view a man only needs three more things to make life perfect, strong whiskey, a fine cigar, and good woman. La luce respira la vita!

The Lookout Post

Mandy agreed to guard the lookout post, and it appears that she did a fine job. She's starting to get used to the family, and walks much better with me now. Hopefully, I will be able to divert her attention away from large sticks that she so abruptly picks up, destroys, then slings on top of my head, such a distraction! Got much business to attend to today, have to make a trip down by the pier, a meeting place for many of my clients.

Dirty Job

Well, last night was pretty interesting, I must say. Had to meet a client at the park, after hours, ya' know. It seemed that we couldn't really come to agreement on a certain situation, so things got a little messy...because it was raining of course, the mud, dirt, etc. So, I had Tina, one of my associates from the club, give me a sponge bath, bada bing bada boom! Yea, I know, I'm as cute as a button in the pictures, but don't be fooled, they call me "The Tank" for a reason. Tonight, I make Mandy an offer, an offer for a great opportunity in our little family business.
