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.

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... ;)

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... ;)
