Groping for a Solution

As people grope for a solution to airport security, the National Defense Magazine points out that doggies have super duper sniffers.

As pointed out in the last post, us doggies actually like pat downs.

So, here's the deal. Why don't you give us dogs a go at it. We will sniff out your bombs for a tasty treat and occasional scratch behind the ears.

Yep, that will do it.

My name is Coco, and I am a dog.

Coco on the TSA

I don't know why the humans keep complaining about the TSA.

Quite frankly, I like it when a complete stranger gives me a pat down. I especially like it when the pat down includes scratching behind my ears.

I have really soft floppy ears. I think they are one of my best features.

I will often run up to strangers and tell them that they can pet me ... if they want.

So, instead of complaining about TSA, I think the humans should dog up, grow a thick fur, and learn to enjoy the petting.

A Test Turkey

This Thanksgiving, my human has been charged with the important task of cooking the Thanksgiving turkey for the extended pack.

Cooking the turkey is an important, but difficult task. Unfortunately, my human hasn't cooked a turkey in dog decades.

There are so many things that can go wrong with cooking the turkey, and if anything happens, Thanksgiving will be ruined ... utterly.

Realizing what's on the line, this little doggie has a wonderful idea.

The idea is a Test Turkey!

I think my human should cook a test turkey today.

The purpose of the test turkey is to hone up on turkey cooking skills.

My human is hesitant to cook a test turkey thinking the food might go to waste.

Well, this little doggie has an answer to that problem. I offer to eat it. I am such a wonderful little creature, that I promise to eat it even if my human makes a mistake cooking the turkey.

An Interspecial Pack

I live in an interspecial pack that includes both humans and a dog.

For the most part, this arrangement works out okay. The doltish humans are tall and can get the kibbles out of the cupboards.

However, as time goes on, I find the dog carrying more and more of the weight of the pack.

Just because one member of the pack has four legs, the pack thinks it can shoulder more of the burden.

Not that I am whining.

Okay, I am whining ... but I just think the humans should appreciate the dog more, and, like, maybe take it on a walk.

I am a rough and tumble doggie and the fact that it's snowing won't slow me down.
