Oh Brother!

I thought it was about time that I introduce everybody to my BFF. He's been with me for practically my whole life. To humans, who don't know any better, he's a quote/unquote squeak toy. But to me, he is as close as a brother would be. That is why I simply refer to him as Brother. We've been on countless adventures together, some of which you will be hearing about soon.

Here we are, hanging out in the jungle of the lawn that nobody bothered to mow.

Well, here it is -- my very first music video. The star of the show, Benny, is my cousin Orielle's kid, and Aimee's brother. He likes to be.... shall we say..... busy. The song I chose says it all. Make sure you turn the volume way up!

More Awards and a Gift!

My good friend Chase sent me these two awards. Thank you so much Chase! You're awesome!

"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award."
The second award is the Neno's Award and is given... "As a dedication for those who love blogging activity and love to encourage friendships through blogging.To seek the reason why we all love blogging. Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it. Don’t forget to mention the person who gives you the award. Answer the Award’s question by writing the reason why you love blogging. Tag and distribute the Award to as many people as you like."

Here goes.... I love blogging because it is through writing about my adventures that I have met all of my new furry friends from all over the world. I love blogging because I get to share my love for dressing up. And, I love hearing about, and seeing through pictures, how all my friends spend their days.

I'd like to pass along these two awards to: Lorenza, Harry, Moco, and Laney.

I also want to thank my new friend Checkers, who just gave me this wonderful gift today. I am honored and look forward to continuing our friendship. Thanks Checkers! You're Super!

Lights! Camera! Action!

Well, I have to say, the new digital movie camera I got for my birthday is totally awesome! I've been mulling over a bunch of ideas, but I've decided that my first attempt at the great art of film making is going to be a music video. The auditions went off without a hitch, even though Benny was the only one who showed up. Aimee was too busy working on a new toilet paper art project and Orielle decided that working behind the scenes in makeup and costumes was more her thing. Oh well, so it looks like Benny's going to star in my first video. Stay tuned.....

Birthday Surprise, or Not

So, Friday was my birthday and as some of you may know, I turned the big ONE-OH, double digits! Benny and Aimee made me hide my eyes saying they had a big surprise for me. I have to say, it's not exactly a surprise when they tell me it's a surprise, but I went along with it anyway. After they counted to 10, skipping number 7, I opened my eyes to find Orielle with a plate full of homemade peanut butter cookies, or shall we say, a half a plate of cookies and a bunch of crumbs dangling from her lips. It was the thought that counts. After the P.B. feast, they presented me with a bunch of presents, my favorite being the digital movie camera I've been asking for. Ah, the joy of film making -- the possibilities are endless! Afterwards, we were subjected to yet another round of Benny's magic tricks. One thing I don't understand: if he loves tennis balls so much, why does he keep making them disappear?

Sticks and Bones

Anybody ever see that show called “Bones” with that guy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Which, by the way, was the most awesome show ever. Well let me tell you, I have watched Bones two times now and not once, I repeat, not once, have I ever seen any bones in that show. I mean, come on! How deceiving! I was all set for some good time, heavy duty chewing and what did I see? Nothing! Now, in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, even though they talk a lot about “steaks,” and I have yet to see one, they do offer an assortment of nice size pointy sticks. Mmmmmmm, I love sticks.

Tag, I'm It!

I am taking a short break from my wacky and wonderful adventures because I have been tagged for the very first time by my new friend Chase to tell five random things about myself.

1) I love standing in the wind, especially when it lifts up my ears and I look like a 747.

2) I love watching awesome sci-fi movies, especially Godzilla!

3) I love helping with chores around the house. My fave is doing the "pre-wash" cycle in the dishwasher.

4) I was named after a hockey player. "Brind'Amour" in French, means "a little bit of love."

5) For all my new friends who have been asking...... yes, we are Clumber Spaniels.

And now, I'd like to tag my friends, Honey, Harry, the 'splorin' Wolfies, Laney, and Maggie and Mitch.

What's So Funny???

I know what you’re thinking…… but it wasn’t me! It was that sneaky little girl, Aimee, who decided to wake up extra early this morning and play an April Fool’s trick on her brother, Benny. I knew she was up to something when I caught her pushing Orielle’s laundry basket in front of the mirror to block it, all the while giggling and snorting under her breath.

Then Benny wakes up and comes into the kitchen for breakfast in his usual jolly way, making jokes, and teasing his little sister and well, let’s just say he still thinks we’re laughing at his corny knock-knock jokes…….Poor Benny, he has no clue….. I guess that box of washable markers I gave Aimee for Christmas wasn’t really such a good idea.
