Confessions of a Wiry Character

I found messages from my friends Mackie and Fever telling me I've been tagged! I thought maybe it was some new form of long distance online microchipping...but it seems it's some new fun game!

So when someone tags you, you have make embarrassing confessions and tell everyone five weird things you've done/five weird habits of yours. Only five?

So here are my confessions:

1. My bones always taste more delicious if I can eat them sitting on Mom's lap, preferably while she is dressed in clean that's how I like to eat them. If she is lying in bed, I also like to drop the bone on her head to get her attention, or if I'm not ready to eat said bone, I will bury it in her back while she sleeps or under Dad's pillow (while he is trying to sleep on it).

2. When I eat my dinner, I walk in circles around my bowl. I take one mouthful, then walk in a circle chewing it, and then go back to my bowl. I think it I may have the beginnings of obsessive compulsive disorder

3. I love to bark. I bark therefore I am. I bark at sounds, I bark at silence. I love the sound of my own voice. As a result, my parents put on my bark collar way too often, sometimes most of the day and night. But that doesn't always stop me. I bark once, get shocked and then run to Mom for cuddles and comfort, and then invariably, she takes off the collar cos she feels so bad for me!

4. When Mom gives me Milkbones in the park, I don't like to eat in front of the other dogs, so I usually bury it in the grass. Mom says it's a very silly thing to do, to bury a bone in a dog park surrounded by hungry dogs with good sniffers! 99% of the time when I go to get my treat it is long gone! I don't understand it...

5. When I go to Gracie to play or she comes to me, I like standing on the couch and dive bombing her! Boy it's fun and it makes up for our size difference!

Boy, that was quite fun, eventhough you now know my secrets!


PS Happy to report that Tilly is starting to recover and will be going home on Thursday!

Do your neighbors protest the barking? If so, what does your Mom and Dad do about it? Just curious...

Hi Axel,

just thought to let your mummy know, one way to keep you barking less is to have another (wiry one sounds goody) friend with you at home! That is what our mum discovered. Thank goodness for Party around with me when mummy goes to work.

In Singapore, if our neighbours complain about us being 'doggie nuisances', the authorities have a right to come and take us away. Shivers...

Hehehehehe! Axel- do you want Ollie? I'd give him to you if you need a brother to keep you from barking! Please? Aw, com'on? Sheez...I can't pawn him off on anyone...

Wiry Axel said...

Mango and Party, I hope the authorities at least give a few warnings before taking any dogs away, my goodness! Mom and Dad got a warning letter which resulted in the bark collar. Not sure a friend would help - when Gracie comes over I like to show off by barking out the window....

Our neighbors all have dogs. The malamute next door is usually quiet but boy he can get LOUD! And Killer across the street - golden retrievers just don't shut up! The worst tho is my arch nemesis Sammy the black hairy chihuahua - yap yap yap yap yap!!!!!!!!!!

So nobody complains about me!

Ooo dear Axel,

Nope they dun need to give warnings if we are deemed nuisances. Some alternatives are that they fine the doggie owners or they tell owners to remove the doggies themselves. All are gloomy options for us doggies here.

Hope you have better luck!
