Danger on the Trail

Uh-oh.  Mr. Bill didn't heed my warning about staying away from cactus.

After his cactus encounter, Mr. Bill tried to hitch a ride on Blueberry.

It did not end well.

"Keep that weird doll off my back, lady."

Mr. Bill does a little rock climbing.

Gosh, Mr. Bill, should have had your rock-climbing gear on.

"I am not with the lady that keeps whipping out the toy and taking pictures of it."

Who Gets the Pancake Cookies?

"This weekend was hot and boring and because of that I refused to help my human pick a Blueberry Pancake Cookie winner.  I admit I was a little out of sorts because of the heat and my human thought a good indoor activity would be filing my nails 50 gajillion times along with slathering my paws with Musher's Secret.  How is that fun?

So, my human had to pick the winner.  She put all the entries onto pieces of paper that she then folded and placed inside of a cylindrical container and then closed her eyes, reached in and grabbed one.  

Do you wonder who it was?  Me too.  I was napping at the time the drawing took place.

One more thing before I announce the winner.  There will be one last giveaway the last week of July - so be sure to tune in!   

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for (I know some of you have already scrolled down to this part because you are tired of my Blueberry ramblings and just want to know who won already)!  

The winner is...Ray the Blind Dog!!! Congratulations, Ray!"

Ray, please have your human email me at tenbluetatersATyahooDOTcom with your mailing address so I can have those pancake cookies sent to you!

A New Hiking Partner

"You didn't think it would be another dog, did you?  I'm an only dog and I love it!"

You Really CAN Pick Your Friend's Nose!

 The other evening, Blueberry kept sneezing.  So, I did what any responsible dog owner would do...I grabbed the flashlight and investigated her nostrils.  (That is normal, isn't it??)

Hmmm...I wonder which finger I should use?

Index finger:  too large.

Pinky finger:  just right!

"I hope that gecko comes back and crawls up her nose..."

Special Note for those horrified at the thought of me picking my friend's nose:  Blueberry is a very patient and trusting dog and doesn't mind when I examine her ears or nostrils. My fingers never technically went into her nostrils as far as you know.  

Question:  How many of you have examined your dog's nostrils with a flashlight?  How many of you haven't, but now kinda want to?  

One last note:  After seeing these pictures - I realize I will never make it as a hand model. Another dream squashed...

Leave the Zoomies to the Professionals

"My human and I were playing in the house last night and she came running down the hall as fast as she could, chasing me and she must have not seen the very large very obvious fan there and she tripped right over it.  Don't worry, folks, the fan was okay.  My human though?  Let's just say she had to ice her foot and now has a nifty bruise.  It's okay to laugh - my human laughed too."

You Scream, You Scream, But I Got all your Ice Cream

"Blueberry here.  Let me set the stage...

It was another hot day in Arizona (shocking, I know). My human went to the freezer to retrieve an ice cream bar.  I sat next to her cause I love ice cream and sometimes I get a lick. My human taught me proper ice cream sharing etiquette - always lick the bar and don't try to swallow it whole like a snake cause that means the ice cream bar goes bye bye; also, minimal drooling is preferable.

As I lick the ice cream bar, I get ice cream on my nose and my human tells me how cute that is.  I know what's coming next.  She runs off (with the ice cream bar by the way) to get her camera phone.  She returns to my side and with the camera phone pointed at me, places the bar right in front of my nose.  If your human is anything like mine - multi-tasking is not a friend. However, in this instance - it was beneficial to me. While she was focused on the camera and tried to adjust the settings - that ice cream bar called to me and I answered swiftly and decisively.  My jaw came unhinged and I slurped that ice cream off the stick faster than my human could say "HEY!!".  

So, thank you to the inventor of ice cream bars and...I can't believe I'm saying this...to the inventor of camera phones.  

I also want to give a special shout out to my human. Thank you for not giving up on trying to get a picture of me eating ice cream and therefore giving me an additional opportunity to swallow an ice cream bar whole. The second one was as delicious as the first. Wanna go for three?"
