Hey everyone - Brutus here!! Since I've been such a good boy lately, mom is letting me do the post today. There is much excitement around my house lately, so I have several things to update you all on.
First, we have 25 great entries for my "That's Ridiculous" contest. We'll be around to pick up the last-minute entries tomorrow morning, then will do a wrap-up post on Monday (don't worry Lorenza & Kari, we've got yours). My dad is going to pick the winner; mom and I figure he'll need a week or so think about it - so stay tuned!
Next, I want to congratulate our friends who responded to the Paw It Forward game. We'll be sending some goodies our to Martine (for Captain & Candy at I Need a Sugar Fix), Lucy & Tank (at The Plus Size Pug), and our new friend Deborah (who has a whole slew of dogs, cats & other assorted creatures over at Amazing Animal Lover's Blog). Mom says I get to help pick out the gifts, so I'm begging her to take me shopping as soon as possible!! We can't wait to Paw It Forward!
Finally, I need everybody's help.... I don't know what to do! I think I've outdone myself. Mom was so happy with how I behaved last weekend at the Rally trial (I must say, it was fun), she filled out a bunch of forms this week. She wouldn't let me see what she was doing, so I tried to snatch the envelopes out of the mail pile, and succeeded in grabbing this one. Oh, boy.... In case you can't read it, it says "CPE" - that's Canine Performance Events, Inc. They put on agility trials. Uh-oh.....
Mom took it away before I could eat it, put a stamp on and tossed it in the mailbox. Great. To make matters worse, she came home the other day with a set of weave poles (real competition-quality ones - not looking good for the Frenchie...). Think I'm in for a lot more training. This sounds like an awful lot of work!
Somebody help! Didn't anyone tell her that Frenchies are bred to be couch potatoes?? Maybe if I just hide behind this jump over here, she'll forget all about it....
Nope. Drat - apparently those darn ears gave me away again.
Well, I guess if it means that I get lots of treats, how bad can it be, right? I did have fun being the center of attention, and it's about time that everyone realized that this Frenchie was born to be a star!! No pawtigraphs, please.... talk to my agent (hehehe!).
Before I sign off for the weekend, I want to give a shout out to my peeps from Columbus. The Buckeyes are going next door, over to PA to play with some kind of Lions, and I'm a bit worried. Mom found this Big 10 cartoon, and I think that Penn State kitty is looking a little smug!
We also feel a little bad for Sasha's Bucky (the squirrely-badger thing from Wisconsin), as he seems to be stuck in the armpit of the Notre Dame leprechaun!! At least the Michigan wolverine is down at the bottom of the pile where he belongs (he'll be glad to be there after what we have in store for him next week- HA!!). Only two weeks of college football left... How can it be over so soon?? We were just getting warmed up!
So have a great weekend everyone, and (as always)...
