Haphazardly Tagged

Bongo sleepingFinally! I’m out of the dog hotel, and now all I want to do is sleep. I’ve got to take a vacation from my vacation.

I’m so tired I don’t know if I’m going to have any adventures this week. I saw my girlfriend Lucy on my trails today and I didn’t even have the energy to play with her. And then she walked right past me and hardly gave me the time of day. I felt so rejected.

But my person woke me up long enough to remind me that I’ve been tagged and given awards and I need to catch up on those. That takes less energy than having adventures, so here goes.

I was tagged in the Haphazard Hop by one of my person’s friends who has a blog called Stealing Faith. She has a great sense of humor, so stop by and see what she has to say.

The rules are simple – If you’re the reader you must click on through and see the Haphazard answers of the tagged bloggers – after all, it’s likely if you like my blog you’ll like the blogs of these new friends! If you’re the tagged blogger, your instructions are below!


Here are your Haphazard Questions!


1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? I like them open because if there’s a thunder storm I can get in the closet without breaking down the door first.

2. What would you call yourself if you could choose your own name? Big Dog of the house.

3. What’s the worst/most embarrassing CD/album you’ve ever owned and do you still have it? Who Let the Dogs Out? Those dogs should have been sneakier so nobody knew they were out. I didn’t really own it but I think my younger person did.

4. As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a Big Dog that could run free without getting lost. I got the run free part, but not the no getting lost part. That’s why I was in dog jail when my people gave me my forever home.

5. When was the last time you cried from laughter, and why? I have trouble with that crying thing – and that laughing thing – so I hope I can make people do that sometimes when they read my blog.

6. Do you like to use Post-It© notes? My person has them all over the counter when she’s figuring out what pictures to add to my blog posts.

7. Do you practice your smile for pictures? I’m a natural. No need to practice.

8. Do you sleep with your sheets out or tucked in? Am I supposed to have sheets on my bed? I think I’m missing out on something here.

9. What is the most bizarre item of food you’ve ever eaten? A shoe. I didn’t really eat a real shoe. It was a dog treat shaped like a shoe.

10. Do you chew on your pen/pencil? Pens and pencils are too short. Sticks are good to chew on though.

11. What’s your least favorite movie? Any movie where the dog behaves better than I do. Then my people expect the same out of me.

12. Where would you bury a hidden treasure if you had it? In my backyard, of course.

13. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper? I would do it all the time but my person won’t let me get into her paints.

14. What was the first concert you attended? For some reason my person will never let me go, but I hear the coyotes howling in concert all the time.

15. Have you ever won a spelling bee? I can spell bee. Oh wait, maybe it’s spelled be. Now I’m confused.

16. Do you hold your nose when you jump into a swimming pool? No way. How am I going to fetch the stick if I’m holding my nose?

17. Are you patient? When am I going to be done answering all these questions?

18. What is the type and model of the first phone you ever had? I’m not allowed to chew up phones.

19. Favorite celebrity? That would have to be Marley. He’s my mentor for mischief.

20. Who is your favorite American president? Why? Whichever one had the best dogs in the White House.

21. What would you do with a $1 million lottery winning? I’d buy lots of treats and then I’d use the rest to help homeless dogs in shelters.

22. Do you believe in ghosts? I definitely believe in Ghost Dog. I see him on my trails sometimes.

23. Is it easier to forgive or forget? I’m always forgiving my people, but if someone isn’t nice to me I’m afraid they might be mean again so I don’t forget. Oh I forgot – everyone’s nice to me.

24. Education or wealth – which is better to have? If I was wealthy I could get lots of treats and loves. But I might need some more Detective Dog education. I still have some mysteries I haven’t solved.

25. One thing most people don’t know about you. I’m an open book. You know everything about me. Well, except maybe for the closet door I messed up in the last thunderstorm. Or did Scratchy do that?

Next Up On the Haphazard Hop:


  1. Angels Whisper (and Little Binky)
  2. Bumpy Road to Bubba
  3. Cupcake
  4. Diane’s Kitchen Table (and Lola)
  5. YOU! Answer the questions on your blog, tell us about it in the comments, and link back to this blog!


Tagged bloggers, here’s the deal: Answer the questions with a blog post published within a week – don’t over think the answers, write the first thing that comes to mind; link back to the blog that nominated you for the Haphazard Hop; and nominate at least three more bloggers for the Haphazard Hop.

Hey, this was kind of fun.

Frozen Tag, Anyone?

Staying in the YardHey person, there’s this game going around with my blogging friends called tagging, and I think I’m it. I’m supposed to answer some questions and then tag more blogging friends – but I think they’ve all been tagged already. I think that’s kind of like frozen tag. I’ve been tagged and I can’t move.

Person, I’m holding all these questions and I don’t know what to do with them. And now I’m getting cold because I’m frozen. I should do what? Answer the questions? I guess I could do that.

Misty Shores Chesapeakes, Bones Diary, Laurie Bartolo, and Collies of the Meadow all tagged me with these questions:

1.       Describe yourself in 7 words. 

Fun loving (oops, that’s two words), playful, escape artist (did it again) energetic, inquisitive, jumper, slobbery

2.       What keeps you up at night?

Nothing – except thunder

3.       Who would you like to be?

I’m happy being me

4.       What are you wearing right now?

My collar – and a lot of hair that will be all over the carpet soon

5.       What scares you?

Thunder – I’m deathly afraid of thunder

6.       The best and worst of blogging.

The best is all the blogging buddies I’ve made – The worst is my person is on the computer when she should be taking me for a walk or feeding me.

7.       The last website I visited.

The ones that tagged me so I could make sure I had all the info right.

8.       What is one thing I would change about myself.

I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m perfect the way I am.

9.       Slankets yes or no.

I didn’t know what a slanket was until my friend Laurie googled it and found out it’s a blanket with sleeves. I’ll just take my bed, or a cozy spot on the carpet.

10.   Tell us something about the dog that tagged you.

Cheyenne, Riva, Maia, and Titan are four amazing Chesapeake Bay Retrievers on Misty Shores Chesapeakes. They are beautiful and fun loving brown dogs and I guess I can’t fault them for living with some cats too.

Bones is a border terrier who has all kinds of fun and loves to get into mischief. He lives with his brothers Alfie and Jess and loves to give them a bad time. He recently had his first birthday and is afraid of losing his puppyness, but those of us who know him know that won’t happen anytime soon.

Laurie Bartolo loves to take photographs of dogs and she travels around her neighborhood looking for dogs willing to model for her. If you haven’t seen her photography you’ve got to check it out. It’s really great.

You’ve never seen so many romping collies as you’ll see at Collies of the Meadow. Chuck shares the lives and love of his many collies – both present and past. It’s amazing to see the different personalities they all have.

Hey person, aren’t you forgetting something? Yeah person, I got some awards too.

I want to say a big thank you to all my blogging friends who honored me with awards.

ABC Award

Sandra Branum and Laurie Bartolo awarded me the ABC Award. Sandra has a lot of fun poetry on her blog and personal stories as well. Laurie has awesome dog photography.

One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award was given to me by Collies of the Meadow, Dianda with Catsnco, and Tylersat99. Catsnco has everything cat. Please don’t tell anyone I read a cat blog. The truth is Scratchy steals the computer and reads it. Mica and Lexie are the two dogs at Tylersat99. They are both Newfoundlands and they have trails almost as good as mine – maybe even better because they have a swimming hole on theirs. The collies are fun loving and have totally overtaken their house, but their dad wouldn’t have it any other way.

HUG Award

Misty Shores Chesapeakes and Bumpy Road to Bubba honored me with the HUG Award. Bumpy Road to Bubba is a beautiful blog about Mumma and her Bubba who recently had her first birthday. They also share their home with Bella and Beary, two beautiful dogs. Misty Shores Chesapeakes has wonderful photos and adventures of a bunch of beautiful, brown Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.

The Liebster Blog Award was awarded to me by Manipal’s Photo Blog. This is a fairly new blog that has some really wonderful photography. Please stop by and check this blog out.

I was also tagged by two other blogging friends – not dogs – and they gave me totally different questions so I’ll post those later. This post is getting long enough.

Hey person, you’re forgetting something else. You know, my blog roll?

No person, I don’t understand busy. Hurry up and get my friend’s links on my blog. At least you finally gave me my Facebook page. That took weeks. I hope nobody holds their breath because they might turn blue, but I’ll keep after my person to put up my blogroll.
