Blighty! You Mean Jolly Old England, eh what?


I  am learning all about my heritage. My people, ‘er dogs, come from England aka GREAT Britain……..is there a not so great Britain? Like a just plain old regular Britain? I learned it is also called Old Blighty…and they talk funny. I wonder if the dogs bark funny over there? I wonder what a British accented bark sounds like?

The Romans used, uh, employed, my ancestors to guard their forts! That must have been a good job! Plus they probably got to eat Italian food all of the time YUM! They probably got to ride around in Ferrari chariots and in the side cars of the Roman Ducati’s, get to meet Sophia Loren’s ancestors dogs and listen to stories about “the old neighborhood”. Hey Wats amatta fo you!   …OK, now I want a canoli.

Oh, yeah, England…I’m an English mastiff, all bangers and mash eh guvnuh? Maybe my ancestors rode in Bently, Aston Martin, or Rolls Royce chariots? Maybe They had a Triumph with a side car?, and maybe they met some page six girls’ ancestors dog? Maybe they were the dogs of the manor?…I still want a canoli though.

So THATS where England is?

Life Lesson: You should know your heritage and be proud of it. Everywhere and everone has greatness to contribute to the rest of the world.

Looking Ahead – New Years resolutions


 I know it is a little late but I needed time to think things over. basically I have two sets of New Years resolutions. 1). the practicle set and 2). the dream set……….so here it goes…………….

A). Not to lose weight, but to grow really big.

B). To get over my fears

C). To not break my daddys’ nose again

D). To join a club, oh I don’t know..maybe the AKC and to be the best Mastiff I possibly can.

…………………Then there is the dream set!

A). To be a movie star and travel the world!  I want to go to England ’cause that’s where my peeps, ( uh, dawgs?) are from. I want to go to Italy to see my Neopolitan brothers…and to eat really good dog food. I bet they feed their dogs Great over there! I want to go to France and see the French stuff, maybe chase some Citroens and see if I can get them to flip over. I want to go to Germany to eat sausage and to bark out “Ich bin ein Berliner Hund!”

 I’d love to go to Australia and New Zeland I belive they refer to them as OZ, yeah’ just like in that movie staring “toto”.  Maybe I can go to Africa and run with the other wild animals on safari! That would be cool! I’d love to meet some Lions and Elephants, maybe go see the Sphinx or play with some chimps?

where else?  Oh, Oh, I wan’t to go to Antartica and do some “scientific” research on ice cubes and meet some penguins. Is there anyone out there from Antartica that can invite me down? My poppy went there, so I’d like to follow in his foot prints.

I think South America would be fun too.  Carinival! WOOOHOOOO!!!! This little puppy from Ipanema! Love that song! I would like to make friends from all over he world. ….but……

I am probably going to stay away from Asia, don’t get me wrong, I’d love to go, there is so much to see and do. It’s just that my life expectancy really drops in that part of the world.

I guess I would have to do some acting if I were to be a movie star. I could play the cowardly lion in that Toto movie, “The wizard of Oz”. I would just need a mane, the rest I have down pat.

Hopefully I can make friends from all over and they will send me post cards or messages so I can learn about places I may not be able to visit.

Life Lesson: Dream big but keep your Paws on the ground.
