Leaping 20 Feet into the Air

Everyone knows that there's about seven dog years in a human year.

The same interesting conversion takes place in linear measurements. There's about seven dog feet in a foot of the English measurement system.

To avoid confusion, some writers call a dog's foot a "paw."

Writing does get confusing. I've been accused of exaggerating when I say that I jumped 20 feet into the air to catch the frisbee. 20 dog feet is about 3 feet in the English system.

Some of my best jumps are well over 20 feet, but my human is too doltish to do the measurements right.

New Dog Smell in the Air

That was fun.

A dog in the neigborhood started barking.

So we all started barking.

One doesn't realize how many dogs there are in the 'hood until they all start barking.

I was barking and running in circles and let loose with a few borderline howls ... it was so fun.

Part of the reason for the barking is that there is a new dog in the neighborhood ... one that I haven't directly smelled yet.

Anyway, I thought you would like to know what all of the barking was about.

That's enough for blogging today. I need to get back to my place by the window so that I can back some more.


What I dislike most about wash day is the clothespins.

Clothespins beat the socks off that scary blow dryer at the self serve dog wash.

On Doggie Duties

The primary job of dogs is to bring joy and happiness to the world.

This is a complex task. Us dogs figured that we would take on the assignment with a two prong approach:

The first prong is that we evolved into all around wonderful creatures.

The second prong is to lead by example. To do this, we have a really fun time running around the playing field. We jump really high to fetch the Frisbee and we roll in the snow with total abandon.

That's about it. We like eating … even if eating involves the same bowl of kibbles day after day. We enjoy sitting on laps … even though humans are lumpy.

Overall, I think the dog population does an admirable job being dogs.

My name is Coco. I am a dog and I approve this message.
