Cookie’s Campfire Song

August 7, 2013

Here’s a little doggy-ditty for your next campfire! 

Cookieredball

Oh It’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, dinner out of a can

Please take me  to a restaurant,  I’ll sit just like a man!

Oh it’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, can’t even drive a car

Can’t sleep on the bed, don’t like it when you shed, it’s doggone too far!

You mustn’t chase the mailman, you cannot chew the rug,

Whatever you do, don’t let them see those ten-foot holes you dug!

They give you names like “Rover” or “Fido” or “Fiff”

I know those names sound good to you, but they’re embarrassing to me!

You mustn’t chase the mailman, or make the kitties squeak,

They take you for a walk on a leash like maybe once a week!

Oh it’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, dinner out of a can

Please take me  to a restaurant I’ll sit just like a man!

Oh it’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, can’t even drive a car

Can’t sleep on the bed, don’t like it when you shed, it’s doggone too far!

(KEY CHANGE:  A-LA “GLORY, GLORY HALLELUJAH”)

We mustn’t forget our puppy pals who fought for four-footed hounds!

Who fought the fights for doggy rights to keep us from the pound!

Like Snoopy, Lassie,  Rin Tin Tin and HUCKLEBERRRRRRY HOOOOOOUUUND……

A DOG IS MAN’S BEST FRIEND!  BUT …………………………..

(BACK TO ORIGINAL KEY)

Oh It’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog, dinner out of a can

Please take me to a restaurant, I’ll sit just like a man!

Oh it’s RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF being a dog can’t even drive a car

Can’t sleep on the bed, don’t like it when you shed, it’s doggone TOOOO FARRRRR!

Thank you Sophia for teaching me this great song!    And wishing YOU starry nights, s’mores, and Happy Trails! Cookie

Cookie Meets a Baby

July 13, 2013

Cookie here!  This is a baby.  Have you ever seen one before?  They’re adorable!

Cookielilapaw

This baby and her Mommy came to my house to play with me the other day.  I never knew people could be so tiny!  Everyone made a big fuss and told me to be “gentle” and “good,” which they always tell me anyway.  Babies come with toys that look a lot like dog toys, and snacks that look like dog treats, none of which I was allowed to have.  All during her visit she kept crawling over to me, which made me feel good.  She could tell how much I like people, especially very little ones.  Even though I couldn’t understand a word the baby said, and she pulled on my jowls and my fur,

I couldn’t help but love her…she’s so sweet!  And the best part of the day was when she looked at me and said “Doggy!”  I don’t know…babies just might be cuter than puppies!    Woofs, Cookie

You are my Sunshine

June 23, 2013

Cookie here!  Once upon a time, not so long ago, I went to doggy day care at Wipe Your Paws, and I met a Puppy Prince.  His name is Sunshine.  Aww, look at little us!  Weren’t we cute?!

We started playing right away…and we’ve never stopped.  He is such a fun guy, and very handsome, as you can see!  He’s a real gentleman too, as I learned that first day we met.  When we both ran for the water dish at the same time, Sunshine stopped in is tracks and let me drink first.  Talk about charming!

Everyone should have a friend like Sunshine.  I’m sure glad I do!  Special thanks to our friend Christina at Wipe Your Paws for these priceless pictures!  

Woofs, Cookie

Sweet Dreams

June 12, 2013

Cookie Here!  Diana came home from a shopping trip with a present for me…a nice new bed.  I had worn out my old one with all my tossing and turning.

As soon as she put it down on the floor for me, I snuggled right in.  It’s very fancy: made of something people call “ultra-suede” and “memory foam.”  I like the raised sides because I can rest my head on them like a pillow.  It’s manufactured by the American Kennel Club.  Best of all they are sold, among other places, at Christmas Tree Shops – one of Diana’s favorite places to find a bargain – where they are very well priced.  So that means more bones for me!

But first….yawn…it’s time for a nap.  Woofs, Cookie

It’s good to have you back S’More!

June 5, 2013

Cookie here!  If you haven’t heard the good news, S’More Cat is back!

dogkiss

I’m so happy I had to give her a kiss.  We will never know exactly what happened during the 10 days she was gone because she won’t tell us.  She was found in a nearby neighbor’s garage, missing her collar, tags and bell.  She was dirty and two pounds lighter, but otherwise fine.  Since she came home our People have been giving her special treatment, like cans of Fancy Feast (her favorite) every day.  My advice to you if your cat ever goes missing: have lots of hope, and search every nearby home/area thoroughly.  While S’More was missing we heard so many stories about cats that took of on impromptu journeys for days, weeks and sometimes months, and also lots of stories of cats getting trapped in garages.  At our house, we’re chalking it up to a case of Spring Fever.

Thanks to all of you for your concern!   Woofs, Cookie 

 

My Peace Spot

April 23, 2013

Whenever I am all wound up…and need some calming down…which is at least daily,

my family soothes me by laying a gentle palm upon the place on my head where my snout meets my skull – A.K.A. my “peace spot.”

And when their hand is resting on that special spot, with the warmth of their hand soothing my busy brain, I close my eyes…(yawn)…and all is well and…

My New (old) Lupine Pet Leash

April 10, 2013

Cookie here, with a “Dog Dollars” post.  This is my favorite leash – the Woofstock pattern from Lupine Pet…

cookieleash

It’s full of peace and love and rainbows (kind of like me.)  If you also have to wear a leash when you go out, I suggest you pick a Lupine Pet one, for the following reasons:  First, they’re well made here in the USA in the great state of New Hampshire.  They’re light-weight for your Human’s convenience and comfort, and designed with colorful, bright  solids and fun patterns (I also wear Plum Blossom).  Best of all, they offer an excellent guarantee: if damaged – even if chewed – Lupine Pet will replace your leash (or other dog product you’ve purchased.)  This is my third Woofstock leash.  Woofstock #1 lasted awhile, but I chewed through it eventually, and my Humans, unaware of the guarantee, liked the first leash well enough to replace it with Woofstock #2.  When I chewed through Woofstock #2, dog-mama Diana noticed the guarantee and returned the leash to Lupine Pet.  Within a week, Woofstock #3 came in the mail – and we were all very pleased.   

Lupine Pet sponsors and donates to great causes such as Jen’s Friends Cancer Donation, Carolina DockDogs, the Maine Coast Runners Flyball Team, and the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire.  AND they’re also having a cool contest!  The Lupine Pet Spring Cleaning Contest, where one lucky pup will win a prize package of dog products worth over $400.  Visit http://www.LupinePet.com to enter the contest and view their products.

Good luck and happy shopping!  Woofs, Cookie
