National Dog Day

Bongo with a tennis ball in his mouthToday is National Dog Day. But since some of my friends live in different countries, it’s also called International Dog Day. That should take care of everybody.

Since this is a special holiday for me and all my dog buddies I think we ought to celebrate.

I’ve been thinking all week of what I’m going to do for National Dog Day.

First, I’m going to banish all the thunder for the day. I might need God’s help for that, but I’m sure He’ll understand. After all, I don’t think He’d want me to be frightened on my special day.

Then, I’m going to go for a long walk – and I’ll find that my puddle has grown so big that I can go swimming in it.

Then, when I get back home I’m going to eat lots of treats.

I might even eat some ice cream.

By then, I’m sure I’ll be so tired that I’ll be ready for a nice, long nap.

And you know what I’m going to do while I’m taking that nap?

I’ll be dreaming about what I’m going to do for National Dog Day next year.

Maybe I’ll adopt a puppy.

National Ice Cream Day

Chocolate ice cream in an ice cream makerYesterday was National Ice Cream Day.

So my person decided to celebrate the day by making me some homemade ice cream.

At least I thought she was making me some homemade ice cream.

She started cooking up all the ingredients.

It smelled good, but there was something missing.

A really important smell.

I wanted to make sure my person hadn’t forgotten the special ingredient so I asked her if she remembered to put the fish in.

She looked at me really funny.

I guess that means she forgot.

I tried to convince her that there was still time to put it in and she told me there were no fish in Mexican Chocolate ice cream.

Mexican Chocolate?!

That sounds like a flavor for a Chihuahua – not for a big dog like me.

I tried to explain to my person that since she was making this ice cream for me she should make my favorite flavor.

And you know what she told me?

My person said this was not National Dog Ice Cream Day and Mexican Chocolate is my younger person’s favorite flavor.

And since my younger person is home for the weekend my person is making his favorite flavor to celebrate National Ice Cream Day.

But, but…

My younger person isn’t even here right now. He’s over at a friend’s.

I’m here. Don’t you think you should make the favorite flavor of the one who stays home and hangs out with you?

I jumped up and down and did everything I could to try to convince my person to make my favorite flavor.

All to no good.

And then you know what she told me?

Manzanita Ice Cream

Home made ice creamThe other day I took my person out picking Manzanita berries and when we came back home she made some Manzanita cider out of them.

Well, my person decided to experiment some more. She decided to put some of that Manzanita juice into ice cream. So today she made ice cream.

I think ice cream might be one of my new favorite foods. Besides fish and meaty bones and cookies, that is.

My person found a recipe for honey vanilla ice cream and put Manzanita juice and sugar in instead of the honey.

And it tasted great!

But boy was it cold! Is that what they call brain freeze?

I couldn’t eat it all at once, so I dropped some on the floor and ate it in little bits.

I was expecting a few extra flavors to blend in from the floor. But my person just mopped it so all I got was ice cream.

And the Manzanita flavor was missing.

I think my person forgot to put it in because all I could taste was French vanilla. No Manzanita flavor at all.

Or maybe the French vanilla flavors took over the Manzanita flavor – kind of like when floor flavors take over what I think I’m licking up.

But that’s okay. I don’t mind.

French vanilla is good.

Can I have some more please?

Eat What You Want Day

Bongo in front of the fridgeToday is Eat What You Want Day. This is absolutely my favorite day of the year.

Let’s see. What do I want to eat today?

Maybe some of that fish I’ve been wanting lately.

Or how about some ice cream?

Wait a minute. I know! I’m going to eat a nice, big, juicy steak. And then some meaty bones that I can chew on for the rest of the day.

And some treats tossed in here and there all day.

My mouth is drooling watering just thinking about all that good food.

Here comes my person. I bet she’s coming to open the refrigerator for me right now and give me something delicious.

Wait! What? What do you mean you don’t have any of those good things to eat in the house?

But it’s Eat What You Want Day. How can I eat what I want if it’s not here to eat?

Person, you’ve got a job to do. You’ve got to go to the store right now and get me everything I want to eat.

You’re not? You’re not going to the store?

You’re giving me what to eat? Dog food?

That’s all I get is dog food?

I guess that wasn’t so bad.
