Merry Christmas... Birthday #2

"Don't tell Santa what I've been up to, okay? As far as he's concerned, I'm still a good boy..." *wink*

Wow, does time fly by quickly or what? BDHD is already 2 years old!!! Thank you for all your submissions and taking time to read the goofy ramblings of a dog lover.

Merry Christmas to you, your family and your pets. May you have love, health and peace this Holiday season.

Oh! And be on the lookout for brand new posts very soon! :D

Canine Dictionary - Part 2

It's been a little while... okay a LONG while since my last update, but after some cajoling on your part, dear readers (aww, come on, I'm blushing!), I bring you the second installment of the Canine Dicitonary. My linguistic juices are following again, so without further ado, I bring you...


TEMPESTUOUS: adjective; Used to vividly describe the involuntary state of one's hairdo, usually caused by drastic changes in wind pattern or inflicted by fiendish groomers. (Demonstrated by Cuda)

"You think this is bad? Why do you think I'm hiding the rest of my body? I really should have paid more attention when my groomer asked if I wanted a "beachy windswept look"..."

TROMPE L'OEIL: noun; Visual deception in which a cunning individual will effectively conceal his presence, usually right before a misdeed is discovered. (Demonstrated by Harpo)

"Ha, ha! They'll never find me behind this thick foliage. My plan is flawless! Wait... does anyone know what poison ivy looks like? Uh oh..."

RASPBERRY: noun; Audible action used to intimate unmentionable bodily sounds, generally easily blamed on unsuspecting canines. (Demonstrated by Sparky)

"Joke's on you, sneaky humans! I didn't just MAKE the noise... HA!"

PRUDISH: adjective; State in which one's inhibitions trumps all common sense, especially when an HD camera is in the vicinity. (Demonstrated by Dovey)

"Get that camera away from me! You know I refuse to be photographed before putting my bows in and re-shaping the hairball on my tail! Oh, the things a diva of my caliber has to endure around here... Stop snickering!"

That's it for today's vocabulary lesson, kids! A few more of these entries and we can all enter the national Spelling Bee competition. Wait, does anyone know what "cymotrichous" means? Oh dear, back to the drawing board... ;)

Canine Dictionary - Part 1

While I was researching a word with my trusty dictionary (look Ma, I can read!), I realized "human" definitions were not always à propos for our pups. So, in keeping with the spirit of this modest yet absurd blog, I present to you a dictionary more befitting our furry companions.

*drum roll*


SMUG: adjective; Facial clue indicating undiscovered intentional mischief which will most undoubtedly be unpleasant in nature for humans. (Demonstrated by Sammie Poochon)

"Oh yeah, sure, the TP roll is doing just fine... *snicker*"

GLOWER: noun; Often successful occular device employed by canines to manipulate or influence their humans in order to obtain any and every earthly thing. (Demonstrated by Lord Pippin)

"Come on, don't you want the best for me? Now, move over, the king-sized bed is mine..."

INNOCENCE: noun; Implied and most often fictitious state demonstrated by wide-eyed and blank stares, used as a defense mechanism once a disaster has been uncovered. (Illustrated by Cokenee)

"Nope, I didn't do it. See how big my eyes are? Are you buying it yet? Maybe if I prop by eyelids open with toothpicks..."

Ahhhh, don't we all feel a little smarter? Me neither... ;)

Today is Adopt the Internet Day! Let's all make a pledge to help homeless pets and rescue animals everywhere. Together, we can all make a huge difference!

Petfinder Adopt-the-Internet Day

Sunday, March 6, 2011


When I think of magic, I picture one of two things: either white-bearded mages brandishing wands, wearing colorful robes and chanting incantations in strange dialects or really flashy Vegas-style performers with big-budget productions and plenty of theatrics (not to mention inflated egos).

However, I rarely imagine... this. Angus is none too pleased with doning the stereotypical wizard uniform and seems to be about to cast the evil eye on us.

"Double, double toil & trouble,
take the hat off or morph into a mussel!"

I wonder if Houdini ever had to endure this...

Who Nose?

Growing up, I remember my mother telling me "Stop making a face, or it'll stay stuck that way." I always figured that was a lot of malarkey dispensed to prevent me from looking ludicrous... until I saw what happened to Lulu.

She obviously did not heed the advice her mama gave her. She tried to lap her own nose one time too many and the unimaginable (and inevitable) happened.

"Don'ph jufff stannn thewe, gefff me a cwowbaww!"

Mama don't preach, I'm in trouble deep...

There's Something About Eli

It has often been said that, over time, pet owners may start to resemble their furry companions. I don't know if this is merely an urban legend, but it makes me want to monitor my animal-loving brethren.

But what about our pets? I've been hearing rumors of pups taking on the likeness of their favorite silver screen actors. Watching one particular Cameron Diaz flick has begun affecting Eli's physionomy. Can you guess which one? *wink, wink*

"Yes, that really IS hair gel..."

Oh, how quickly our minds dive right into the gutter... ;)


Tonight, on American Pup Idol: it's Classics Night!

Our contestants will pull out all the stops to wow the judges with their personal interpretations of classic melodies from The Sound of Music.

That's right, folks! They will be singing their furry little hearts out to win your votes and our grand prize: a lifetime supply of gourmet bully sticks.

Let's get started, shall we? First up: Vern. Take it away!

"The hills are aliiiiiiiiive with the sound of hooowliiiiiing,
With holes we have dug for a thousand years..."

Hmmm... I can almost hear Rodgers & Hammerstein turning in their graves... ;)

Also, can you believe Bad Dog Hair Day is turning one year old?! Yep! BDHD was created on Christmas Day last year. Good times, good times... :)

Get ready to make 2011 even more hilarious!

E=MC Scared...

In today's world, we are constantly told that we need to be smart, well-educated and well-versed to succeed in life. How can your average pup acquire these sought-after qualities? The best way, some would contend, is to apply yourself in school, broaden your horizons and embrace new experiences.

Others believe they can just fake it. Guimauve is obviously convinced that by sporting an Einstein-esque hairdo, his peers will regard him as an intellectual.

"Why would I care about modern physics when I have a modern physique?"

The theory of relativity has just taken a back seat to relative silliness... ;)

One Climbed Into The Cuckoo's Nest

Ah, the call of the wild! How it can grab a young pup, make her want to roam lush green pastures and sail the sparkling seas. Many canines have decided to uproot their lives and commune with nature. It's all very poetic...

And then, there are some that can take it a bit too far.

Case in point: Chloe. It's one thing to be in unison with nature, but it's a whole other ballgame to pretend you're part of another species.

"Do you know about the word? Everybody knows that the bird is the word! B-b-b-bird, bird, bird! Bird is the word!"

I bet she can see her squeaky toys from up there...

I'm With The Band

Ladies, is your man in desperate need of a makeover? Has he been wearing the same old threads since Ed Sullivan went off the air? Is his idea of a stylish outfit a pit-stained t-shirt, black socks and brown sandals? Are there more holes in his tighty-withies than swiss cheese? (Geez, now I'll never get that image out of my head *shudder*... Movin' on...)

Finally, your prayers have been answered! Say hello to the brand new Belly Band 3000!

Available in 150 different colors, it is designed to withle his waistline, accentuate his buttocks, straighten his spine, pay the mortgage, give him a British accent, cure his receeding hairline, and eradicate his fear of changing the toilet paper roll.

Below, Tucker Max Small Paws models two of our best-selling colors, You're Out of My O-Range and Yell-Low, Bark High.

"I'm too sexy for my band, New York & Japan!"

"Fabio, eat your heart out! BowwowWOW!"
I just love a fashion-conscious pup... ;)

Curl & Dye Laughing

*walks up to microphone stand, taps mike*


My friends, I am here today to alert everyone about a serious epidemic sweeping the nation as we speak. Bichons everywhere are becoming so obssessed with their looks, they are now resorting to drastic measures to achieve that extra kink.

Many tend to exagerate their perms, as C.C.Charlie demonstrates...

"I don't have a curling problem, I can stop anytime I want!"

"Okay, maybe I do need help... Even my nose hairs are kinky!"

There is hope, my friends! Everybody break out your flatening irons and let's help Bichons worldwide! ;)

Keep On Truckin'

Many a trucker will tell you that wanderlust is one of the main reasons they spend countless solo hours on the road (well, that and they like to put food on the table!). However, I suspect that they also do it for the chance to use their CBs. I mean, where else can you hear this kind of conversation between Vern and Chloe...

"Flatnose McSexy Cap calling all truckers, anybody out there?"

"I hear you loud and clear, Flatnose! This is Long Ears Lowrider Mama, riding the open roads..."

Don't forget the dramamine... Rollin', rollin', rollin'...

Do You C What I See?

Jazmin is without a doubt a huge fan of disco music. As a matter of fact, her favorite tune stems from that glittery era. She loves it so much, she can't help herself from spelling it out. Can you guess what it is yet? (Hint: Every self-respecting wedding reception has featured it and everyone can sing it)

"It's fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A! Ptthhhhh!!!"

Now let's see her strike a John Travolta pose with a massive 'fro... ;)
