My Dog IS My Shepherd

My Dog IS My Shepherd

Snoop’in Rudy I can’t help snooping! Rudy Here.  I know, I am not supposed to be a snoop, but I found this poem in his printer.  At least he uses a PC vs. writing things down on paper.

Anyway, I think the poem is about me?  Wow, I must mean a lot to... [Read more]

Well, as usual, I feel a little research is required.  I am a proper dog, a big German Shepherd... [Read more]

Baltazar the Great Dane Protects Josephine Hello.  Its Rudy from the Dog Run again!

Today,... [Read more]

My Operation  11/28/08   What is with these people?  They took me to the vet and had me neutered!

Halloween Humiliation

Halloween Humiliation

Yesterday, I looked at all the children that came to my door asking for candy.  I know what it is like to ask for a treat now and then.  In fact, I enjoy working for treats.  I like cookies, bits of chicken, and peanut butter. When I think of Halloween I want to be in my Dog Run.  I will bark and bark.  I refuse to wear a costume.  Why do they think it is cool to dress me up?  Or any of my canine... [Read more]

Clancy is my Favorite Cat! He Can’t Scare Me Anymore.

Rudy here.  Clancy is one fat cat.  He thinks he rules the place.  I used to think that too!  He would hiss at me and give me the evil eye.  He even stuck out his tongue at me and threw a punch. Then, I learned his secret.  HE IS A PUSSY CAT!  You guessed it.  A big pussy cat.  He started batting my nose with his paw.  It felt like a little soft teddy bear paw.  So, I just winked at him. We... [Read more]

The Dog Run is Flooded!

I hate when my neighborhood is flooded.  I don’t know where to urinate.  My favorite hydrant was flooded today.  I know I don’t have much to complain about, but I really enjoy visiting my hydrant.  Actually, skipping around in the water and splishing and spashing is a lot of fun!  I have never been in a canoe, and I wish I had one.  My buds in the neighborhood are beside themselves. ... [Read more]
