Mabel, Black Label!

I've had a couple opportunities these past couple of weeks to spend time with some pretty neat dogs. Not only that, I've been having pup-heavy dreams the past few nights, which is exciting. AND Mythbusters last night was about dog myths. Pretty much the best week ever.

My mom had a friend of hers staying with us for about a week. He is a man named Art who is funny and kind of strange. Someone said he looked like Allen Ginsberg, which I would agree with. Art has a really fuzzy dog named Billie, who is very nice. She was staying with us too. She is very smart and does what she is told. Billie has really thick black fur that gets everywhere, and after she left my mom and I kept finding big piles of it everywhere. Some looked like dead guinea pigs. The only problem with Billie was that every morning she would jump up and down at the front door to go outside, which is right over my bed. This resulted in me yelling "shut the fuck uuuuup" until I realized that you should never get mad at a dog about wanting to go out and smell things. That is all they know and we cannot blame them for that. We should just not go to bed at 7 after drinking and eating toast all night. If we didn't do that then the jumping up and down wouldn't bother us at all.

My aunt got a puppy! Holy crap. Amazing. It is a GOLDENDOODLE. That is a Golden Retriever crossed with a Standard Poodle. It just looks like a Golden Retriever with wavy hair. Her name is Mabel and man, what a great puppy. She is the calmest thing ever. I mean it. Out of everything that exists, she is the calmest. She doesn't bark or jump around or get overly excited. She just hangs out. If you sit on the floor, she'll walk over and sit in your lap and fall asleep. I almost barfed when that happened. And if you're standing up she'll lie between your feet looking adorable. She was really long legs and giant paws, so she's all gangly and awkward. I wish I was hanging out with her right now! I bet we will be best friends. I will take her for walks and give her puppy baths and teach her how to hi-five and say "awesoooome".

My friend Rory also has a puppy named Elsa. He keeps posting pictures of her on the internet which makes me jealous. She is a German Shepherd and they are my favourite type of dog. I wish I could see her in real life, but Rory lives in England. I also wish I could see Rory in real life. Yesterday I missed him pretty badly, so I decided to get a picture of him blown up so that I can hang it on my wall. Hopefully I will get to go to England and then I don't have to settle for a stupid picture.

Last night I had good and also very annoying dream. The good part was that I was training pups how to do amazing things, like drop from helicopters and do flips in water and stuff. The annoying part was that boys I like had brought other girls to a party AND I lost my pizza in a port-o-potty. So lame.

Well that wasn't a spectacular update. Whatever, eat shit.

Maybe this is the second/third greatest blog of all time, maybe not, but I would bet that it is the first/definitely first greatest dog blog of all time, that I am aware of.
