The Forbidden = Unforbidden

I have some good news to report on this exciting Monday. After gazillion years months of endless waiting, the forbidden fruit became unforbidden.  One apple just happened to fall down with its rosy cheeks up. I didn’t see it fall and no I didn’t touch it. I know, I know. In hindsight, I should have, could have waited at the bottom of the tree and gobbled it up right there as we all know that an apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

We supposedly live in a democratic household so after we had looked at the apple on the kitchen countertop for ages days my kitchen staff split the apple into four equal parts. All seeds and the core were removed as those are very bad for us canines.

There is a second apple that keeps staring at me from the kitchen countertop. That one didn’t fall down but had to be harvested to save a fragile looking tree limb from breaking.  The limb had three apples on it and just couldn’t support those. I would have taken all three apples, but hey my opinion doesn’t seem to count most of the time sometimes. Calling headquarters a semi-democratic institution would probably be more accurate.  They are trying their best but some seem to be more equal than others. One can always hope though that one day we’ll all be the same.

If you’re wondering what else we canines can eat besides apples, here is a list of some of the human goodies that canines can eat.

Bon chew,

Yeah, our postcard made it to our dear northern friends Doug, Dougy, and Andy! You can read all about it on Weggieboy’s blog.  Happy Tuesday!

What a wonderful post card! Ms. Zulu (on the left) and Benji are well known to Andy and Dougy because the four did interviews with each other, and found that dogs are nice and so are cats! They became friends and are now old buddies. (Check out these interview links if you’ve not read them.) If only […]

I’m ready, are you?

Wow, what a day. After a walk and putting on my Dogtor uniform we went to a local college in town to do some dogtoring. It’s finals week so I was asked together with two of my furry Dogtor colleagues to show up at the student’s library to do some destressing. When we walked in we first had to go through a metal detector. It’s good that I left my S-SD device at home otherwise the guard would have confiscated it. But I have to say, the guard was a very nice lady who greeted me enthusiastically with open arms. Inside the library, there were rows and rows of tables with students who tried to study. I guess we were a bit of a distraction as lots of heads turned when we walked in.

Finally, way back in the building, we were able to sit down and students who needed some destressing could sit with us. Lots of hands touched me and supposedly I touched many hearts. I did what I call reversed Reiki. While the hands touched me, I gave the students positive energy so that they would be able to relax and focus better on their studies. They said it worked. I am sure showing them my tricks helped too. The destress event leader even had to do some crowd control. At some point, students had to wait for almost 15 minutes before they could touch me.

Many students remarked that I was a handsome looking one and wanted to take a picture of me. I’m glad their cameras didn’t flash otherwise I would have lost my eyesight. When we were done and tried to walk towards the door, we didn’t make much progress at first because there were more people who wanted my reversed Reiki touch. I felt like a celebrity. I think my scarf makes me look like one.

Stay cool and have a relaxing afternoon,

We were very busy this morning writing a postcard to Doug, Andy, and Dougy. It’s not an easy affair. Once we figured out what we would write, we wrote the card and put a stamp on it. Unfortunately, we didn’t have to lick the stamp. And since we didn’t have to put the card in an envelope either, there was no licking at all. I can tell you that the usefulness of our long tongues is often overlooked.

Next, we walked to the mailbox and made sure that all was in order for the mail(wo)man to pick it up and deliver it to the boys up north. What we wrote and sent? I’m sure you will find out as soon as the boys get our postcard.

Patience is a virtue that will eventually lead to rewards,

The Forbidden Fruit

The forbidden fruit is oh so tempting. This is the first year our apple tree is producing apples. The name of the apples is promising: Joy Apples. Last year I was too small to help myself to the Fuyu Persimmons; believe me, I tried.  The apple tree will be so much easier as I have grown and the apple tree is still a youngin. Supposedly the apples will even get bigger. I am not sure if I want to wait to see that theory come to fruition. I can wait a little bit but hey where is the joy in waiting much longer?

Have a great weekend, and may the rewards be big for those who wait,

Benji
