Gone Fishin

I'll be on vacation for the next couple of weeks. Don't know if I'll have access to a computer, but if I do, I'll post some updates. In the meantime, what do you think of Abby? Can you believe she was voted 'Dog of the Week.' With that kind of competition, no doubt, I'll be coming home with the trophy.

Peace out,

The 'M' Word

I think it's time to eliminate the 'M' word (you know, MU*T) from our vocabulary. It's hurtful and it's derogatory. We dogs with parents of different breeds prefer the term 'DIVERSE BREED'. There is nothing more painful for me than to go to the dog park and hear the other dogs refer to me with that M word (like they're so high and mighty). So please, the next time you see a dog like me, for instance with a poodle for a daddy and a cocker spaniel for a mommy, be careful how you refer him or her. We dogs may not always show it, but we are sensitive.

Thank you.

Who Dunnit?

Check out the great card from me to my Daddy. It came in the mail yesterday. He opened it, was very happy, he hugged me, and told me I was a good dog for thinking of him. Only trouble is . . . I didn't send it. How could I? It was postmarked from suburban Maryland, where I haven't been since I left Autumn View Farm in Mt. Airy where I spent my early months.
So the question is, who dunnit? I'm not mad or anything, it was a nice card and daddy scratched me extra behind my ears. But I'd just like to know. So if it was you, you can leave me a comment or give me a shout-out at

My Namesake?

I was told I was named after a 'Tommy Lasorda', and this is a picture of the only person I could find on the internet by that name. It looks like some fat guy in pajamas. It's got to be a mistake. Anyone got a clue?

Check out my new 'do'

Hey, check it out. I was just groomed - a bath, trim, the works. It was kinda strange. I'm used to being dragged to some place and shoved in a small crate to be groomed. But this time, a big van driven by a nice lady, came to my house. I went inside and she bathed me (I didn't like that part) and then clipped me - all right in my front yard. And then she gave me a new squeaky toy, patted my on the head, and said I was a good boy. It was fun.
So what do you think, how do I look?

My Mom

I just received an e-mail from my mother, Cherokee. She sent a picture of herself and I'm so thrilled that I had to post it right away. Isn't she pretty? I'm going to print this off, frame it, and hang it in my crate.

Michael Vick and Dog Fighting

I was browsing the internet today, and came across this disturbing story:

Let me first say that I'm not completely against dog fighting, per se. While I'm not a fighter, myself, I'm not one to tell another dog he can't earn a living. But this seems just seems like wanton exploitation of my brethren and I don't think these dogs wanted to fight, but were made to. This Michael Vick is a bad person:

"Vick himself participated in the killings of eight dogs in April, according
to the indictment. The animals were killed "by various methods, including
hanging, drowning and slamming at least one dog's body to the ground," the
indictment said."

Look at the picture. I think I see some cockapoos in the cage. That's just not right. We cockapoos aren't fighters; we're much better at being house dogs, sleeping, being chased, eating, and maybe a little light wrestling for fun.

My Diploma

Hello. Beautiful day in McLean. We slept in late. I tried to sneak onto the bed a few times, but it didn't work. But I slept comfortably.

I wanted to present my bonifides to the blogging world - my puppy school diploma.

Canine Rights - Underdog

I'll open with a very controversial subject - canine rights. My Daddy showed me the trailer to a new blockbuster movie, Underdog. I really want to see the movie, but Daddy told me that dogs are not allowed in movie theaters and I will have to wait until the movie comes out on DVD before I can see it. Do you realize that even the dog who plays underdog will not be allowed to see his own movie in the theater? This is only the latest in a long list of canine rights abuses. So what do you think? Should dogs be allowed to see movies in the theaters with people? Let me know what you think.
