Cloudy With a Chance of Meatball


 I really like it when my dad grills. He has this grill that seems to keep getting smaller. I think it is the rain. Maybe it is the really hot weather that starts to melt it, then the rain gets it wet, then it gets hot again and the grill shrinks.  That is my guess, (but what do I know I am just a dog).

I mostly like the cool weather. I don’t mind if it is raining, hardly seem to notice in fact. The only things I don’t care for is A). my dad feels compelled to try to dry my feet off when we go back in.  B). if it rains a lot he gets grumpy, (but what does he know he is just a human). and C). If it is really raining hard he trys to avoid walking me. I don’t mind getting wet and I have to pee reguardless if it is raining hard or not!

It is nice when the rain is refreshing and does helpful stuff like cooling things off or filling the bird bath so I can drink out of it, stuff like that. It would be really cool if it rained something better than water though. I wish it would rain treats, cookies, meat would also be nice, ( my guess it is water and that is that).

Now thunder and lightning is ok too. Some don’t care for it but it never seems to bother me. Hey I bark and the sky thunders….. to each his own.

Life Lesson: Even if it is raining outside, don’t let it rain inside.

I Think I Have A Pen Pal Maybe Even More Than One…YAY!!!!!


Thats’ me standing on my dad. I think he is losing weight and shrinking. Doesn’t he look smaller than before?
…….Anyway, another dog writer has been sending me messages commenting on my blog and blogging also. His name is Ryder. Now isn’t that so cool! First of all he has a cool name. It is cool, tough, daring and a whole host of other things that Meatball just doesn’t denote. We could be part of a movement. We could be the beginning of a revolution. Equal rights for dogs! Dog marriage, (after all where would you ever find a more faithfull partner?) A dog for president! ( who would be more honest). Dogs running the Pentagon, ( who knows how to fight and when to run better?). And best of all “Playdog” magazine! (this being a family blog I won’t go into what we can do – other than to say…”we can reach areas by ourselves”….oooh never mind)                  ok, where was I?

So I am glad to have a “correspondent” to correspond with and hoping for that play date someday when we can find neutral turf to run around in, Maybe Memorial Park or a Long Dock Park trail walk? Before my daddy shrinks  to much, like inthat movie,  “Honey I Shrunk the Daddy”
