The Beacon Barkery !

It was like Christmas today! My dad took me to the Beacon Barkery and we went wild!

He got me TWO frozen marrow bones…..and

a really, really nice sales lady with her assistant, (had good dog smell on them) gave me an entire bag of chicken treats, which are incredible. They are made in the US and are just dried chicken breast, (too bad for the chicken), scrumptious. At first when they came in I barked at them. I thought they were going to try and take all the food and I want this to be mine, mine all mine…Yeah, I was staking a claim for this to be my turf. Then she tried to give me some catfish treat, blah…give that to a cat…I’m not bought off so easily that is when she broke out those chicken treats and we became friends, (ok, I am kinda’ easy). My dad also bought me a bag of my favorite little snacky when I go for a walk treats……AND….

He also got me some thin chew sticks ..AND what he calls Dog Food Cold Cuts. It is “Natural Balance” dog food in a big Salami like tube that he mixes in with my dry bland boring kibble to make it, uh, more better…..AND!!!!!!!!

Yes, That’s Right….a SUPER COOKIE! It is some sort of homemade peanut butter and Heaven cookie! I know it is a home made treat, but  I think it is also made with magic or something.

I am so spoiled and that is so good!

Vice Presidential Debate, …

So, this is what we got. …and in the real important news…….It is my daddy’s birthday today. I let him walk me, take me to the park..the one by “the Round House” in Beacon, the we went to the Beacon Barkey where I let him by me a few treats a Himalayan Cheese stick and some bones… and then we played more catch in the back yard. It was fun for me. Himalayan Cheese stick? …it is this compressed Yak cheese, yes I said Yak cheese sort of made into a yogurt like substance then dried and compressed until it is a very hard bone like thing, they’re yummy! So I had a good day. Oh, Oh, Oh, he also bought me this new food stuff thing, it is like a log of compressed meat kinda’ like they have with coldcuts you know like a salami or balonga only more dense and hard. So he cut off a chunk and diced it up and mixed it in with my dog food aand WOW! it is GOOD! It is some sort of natural, live, real, raw …but not really dog food stuff YUM!

Oh and it is Biden, Ryan then there is O’bama and Romney…are they ALL Irish? My dad thinks Snooki and JWOW should run the country so it would be less superficial than the politicians. Maybe the Kardashians can make up the cabinet? …and all of the decisions can be made by a panel of judges like in DWTS, Xfactor or American Idol and the audience, (voters) can call in or text their preference?

 My friend Ryder and I having a debate….It is water…no that’s absurd it is water, no, it is water…no, no, no, It is water! You would have us believe it is water? No, it IS water, I can’t believe you are saying it is water when anyone can clearly see it is water….and I know water when I see it! Oh yeah, I grew up with water and my family knows water and I am telling you it is water!..No, it is not,it is water!

Life Lesson: Run, Play, Eat, Sleep, get petted and rubbed, lick your naughty bits, chew things up Pee and Poop, that is life.

Best Birthday Ever! (Also My Only One)

I am one year old today. I do not really feel any different from yesterday, but my humans are celebrating, so who am I to say no? I think we are supposed to be happy because I have managed to stay alive for this long. And because my mommy has not eaten me yet.

When my mom and dad came home, they had me wear a stupid hat whose strings are not even long enough to go around my neck. It was annoying but I got to eat the hat so I guess it was not too bad.

Then came the cake. My dad got it from the Beacon Barkery. They have THE BEST stuff ever! YUMMMMM!

Then the 20 piece chicken nuggets.

Then I got to eat half my mom’s steak with mushroom sauce. And a lot of my dad’s french fries.  And I get to have a birthday pie for dessert!

I may not get why humans do birthdays, but I have decided That I Like It!

Life Lesson: Birthdays are when people who love you spoil you (more than usual). Take advantage. It only happens once a year.

3 Bone Day!

My dad must really love me. Even though he said I must belong to PITA, (thats “pain in the ***), …not Peta, (“People for the Ethical Treatment on Animals”). He likes to get a lot of things done when he is home on the weekend. today he wanted to work on the cabinets he is building for the new Orange Pediatric Care, P.C. office, and he wanted to work on the car, and he wanted to go out and get some wood at Home Depot, and he wanted to go to Michaels for some art supplies, and he wantd to go to Harbor Freight Tools because they are having a sale, and he wanted to go to Barnes & Nobles to see if they have any interesting new car magazines, and he wanted to go to “the Peoples Bicycle for a cable, oh, and he wanted to spend some time with my mom and also me. See what I mean…he likes to get things done.

So he thinks I am a P-I-T-A because while he is doing other stuff I keep bothering him to play with me.  So he decided early on today that he would try to deflect me and keep me busy with toys. As usual he went to the “Beacon Barkery” my favorite dog toy and food store and bought me not one, not two, but three bones to chew on for today. He bought me one that looks hard but is really made of something like compressed sweet potatoes or something wierd like that. He also got me a Tibetian Cheese Stick, which is something like Yak cheese compressed real hard so it is like a rock. AND he got me a real live, uh dead marrow bone.

Bone # 1- I went through that thing in lkike 10 minutes and it was on to pester my dad.  then

Bone # 2- I accidently dropped the cheese stick and it broke in half. My dad being the worrier that he is took it away because he thought I might try to eat the pieces whole and they would get stuck inside me.

Bone # 3- Ok, boy is that marrow bone good. It is work trying to get that marrow out of the middle, but that is half the adventure. That bone did keep me occupied for quite awhile so I guess that was a success for both of us.

Life Lesson: Be prepared with multiple options and if you can help yourself by helping others everyone wins.

Cracking the Davinci Code

 What a day! First I got to go to Hudson Highlands Vetinary so I could get my Frontline anti-flea and tick medicine and also my Heartguard my anti heart worm medicine. They had to weigh me. I clocked in at 150lbs. So it means I get the medicine for a big dog and a medium dog too!

After that we went to the Beacon Barkery and got food! Yay! It is on Main Street in Beacon and they have the absolute bestest stuff. My mom got me an indestructible squeaky rabbit there the other day. It sounds like a duck but it is now my favorite toy…, (that is still alive). Going out of the car onto Main Street was scary, but the walk back to the car was not at all. Hmmm, maybe it is becuse I have so much fun at the Barkery?
And the adventure wasn’t done yet. We went to Petsmart just for more socialization. It is another store I am allowed in and usually I get to meet some other dogs and people to kinda’ get used to them. Thats where I met………..HIM.

 Davinci. He is my size!and my age! we are both just about 11 months and he is 145lbs.WOOOOHOOOO!!! we had a GREAT time. His dad and my dad snuck us into their training room and took off our leashes so we could run and play. Yeah, outlaws again. Again we break the rules. Off the leash and free.

It took me awhile but I got on top of Davinci and made him pee on the floor. So the code is cracked. Get on top of Davinci and make him pee! ….and you all thought it was so much more complicated than that. Hmph.
