I Still Got It

Yep, I might be slowing down little bit but I still got it. Man says I don’t hear too good but I can here a beef jerky wrapper from a mile. And I can still sing too. I like a good canyon with nice echos to harmonize with. Man can get me going though it might take a minute. And sniffing? My sniffer works great. Like the other day some big mountain kitty kilt a deer right by our house! Well, man didn’t know but I led him right to it. Blood, guts, deer parts everywhere. Whenever he’s not lookin’ I like to go over there and grab a bite of something but then he starts into yelling at me. That’s what he means when he sez I don’t hear too good. When my sniffer is working overtime it kinda drowns out any other senses. I don’t hear him at all and he gets all mad cause he has to come and drag me away just when I’m finding the best parts. Oh well, there’s not much left anyway. It’s amazing how fast it’s gone. The crows, and those noisy black and white crows and everything else. It’s like there’s a party going on right next door and I’m grounded. Oh woe is me. But it’s okay, man still makes bacon on Sundays. and pizza bones. He made a pizza and I get the bones for days. And carrots. Did you know I love carrots? True. Man says it takes care of my dragon breath from eating dead deer. The cup’s half full I guess. Or the deer is only half eaten is what I say. So, yeah, I still got. Maybe not the quanity of miles we used to do but the quality. I mean I’ve got 5 dawg beds around the house in strategic places, and one in the truck of adventure and a couple at the work studio place and a couch so I’ve got chillin’ covered. Trained man good on that one. So, don’t forget to chill and use your sniffer, it could lead you to buried treasure! Desert Dawg – over and out.

      Desert Dawg, Tell your man that you would appreciate some of that Glucosamine/Chondronitin stuff too. Sure, that marijuana based medication he’s using on ya will help with the pain, I get that. But this other stuff will eventually help restore your joints. Stare at him with those big soft doggie eyes and he’ll get it fer ya. Keep on keeping on!

    Great to hear, or sniff out DD. I yell at at my deaf boys, Rusty and Bodi, too when a found carcas becomes more important than staying on the trail.

    All the best!
    Rob and the boys.

    Of course you do!
    Desert Dawg you warm my heart, make me smile, and inspire some good howling! Glad to hear you are appreciating carrots these days – they are good for keeping your teeth clean. Though I understand your focusing efforts on being a connoisseur of old deer legs and bacon – they smell so much more interesting. If only man and us other humans could understand all you know from a good whiff or sniff. You have a lot to teach us.

    Hey Dog – My girls want to know if you get to enjoy “kitty candy” for desert? They hope you do. They know it must be extra special because of the reaction I have when they are picking out a choice piece! Is that some snow behind you? Keep your paws warm ! You look real handsome in your picture!

    I know exactly what you mean about great deer parts. I found a good dead bird and a deer leg but I got drug in and couldn’t find them later. I have only two beds and I give one a good shake when I want something–like to go outside and roll in something really smelly like a dead bird.

    You’re in the prime of your life, DD – doing what wise dogs do, teaching humans lesson after lesson, and damn…you’re a handsome devil too. All that ‘distinguished’ hair adds to your wisdom. The more years we pack under our paws the better off we are as beings (2- or 4-legged variety), don’t you agree? Please can you ask your human to post even more pics of your dashingly handsome self? Thank you, and on living like a well-loved Rockstar, DD!!
