Hiatus. AGAIN!!!

I'm sorry to say I won't be blogging or checking up on other blogs for a bit. Channy is very busy. Plus, she's gone and lost her camera! How am I supposed to stick myself on my blog without that?! I don't fit in the scanner!
Oh well. Have a lovely time in the Dog Days of Summer, everyone!

Channy had time!


Channy had time for me today! She carefully counted out 30 treats (my training reward ration for each day). Then she trained with me!

We worked on "Look-it-me", "Don't Touch", "Take it", "Stay", and "Come". Come is my favorite. I always run towards her full blast, even if she doesn't have treats. But she's a little bit of a perfectionist and wants to make sure I always finished the "come" by doing a "sit" right in front of her. I have a nervous scooting habit (NOT BUM SCOOTING! just a kind of seated shuffle!) that I do when I see treats, so it's a little tricky.

I already know "sit", "off" (though I growl if I REALLY don't want to get off), "in", "out", "go to bed", and "let's go", but Channy says we still need to proof those ones. Proofing is making sure your dog can perform a command in any situation. Channy says "take it" and "look-it-me" are ready for proofing now too!

Maybe, after each command is proofed, I'll put up a video of me preforming commands. How fun!

And now for some random pictures of me.


This has always been my most favorite way to sleep, UPSIDE DOWN! (That's not really my bed, by the way. It's just my sofa-bed in Channy's room. I sleep in a crate.)

See! I even did it the very first night I slept here with my human family.

Well, it's time for my walkies now!

Grand Bisous!

Okay, caaaalm down, Cookie. You are a Good Sport. A Goood Sport. Aaaah . . .

. . .

OoooooOOOOHH! I'm so angry!

Channy, my primary people, has been such a slacker lately. She's fallen SO behind in schoolwork, that she had to take a VERY long hiatus from helping me with my blog!

Now I'm so behind on my blog reading that I'll NEVER catch up! -sigh-

I'll be giving you a summary of what I've been doing later. Right now, Channy has to go back to work. :(


Grand Bisous!

The Mango Minster Experience

Well, MangoMinster has come to a close for this year, and it was a blast. I've met new friends, gone to Key West for the first time, and I won the Good Sport category!
All of this publicity has brought more followers to my blog, and has made me a sort of . . . celebrity! To celebrate, Channy wizzed me home really fast after the Good Sport winners were announced (I say winners because Zack and Frankie count as winners) to give me a brand new look and get me ready for the press!

To my amazement, Vague wanted me on the cover of their magazine!

They also interviewed me!

MD: Cookie! Congratulations on your win!
CM: Thank you, Mary, I appreciate that!
MD: So, I hear you're a shy dog. How was it being smashed in with a group of dogs you don't even know, and then suddenly be thrown into the spotlight?
CM: Oh, I was a little freaked out at first. (laugh) So many other dogs, and, I swear, half of them belonged in the Cracker Insane category . . . (laugh) Wow. Yeah, that was a little bit . . . exhilarating, but I tried my best to take it like a trouper.
MD: Like a true Good Sport!
CM: Heh, yeah. (laugh)
MD: What did you think of that Mr. Wild Dingo?
CM: I'm still . . . not sure . . . what I think. That was just . . . wow. I think Mango was testing us Good Sports there. (laugh)
MD: (laugh) I noticed you were not in sight when the Good Sports were at that collar-optional bar. Were you hiding, or had you already gone in?
CM: Oh, good lord . . . (laugh). No, no, I wasn't going anywhere near that place! I mean, I go collarless at home, of course . . . Papa doesn't like the noise my tags make, but . . . in public?! How racy!
MD: You? Collarless? I was under the impression you were the kind of girl to bathe in your collar.
CM: (laugh) Oh, please . . .
MD: So, what are your thoughts on Juno's after show interview?
CM: I was . . . flabbergasted when I read the interview. I . . . To be recognized like that . . . like this . . . That and winning all together made me want to live like an even better Good Sport. That and, also, seeing Clive in the ring. He's just an inspiration. I'm so glad he won Best In Show. He deserves it. (V)

After Best In Show, Channy encouraged me to hold a press conference. There was something really weird going on with my hair that day. There was just this one really curly bit that wouldn't lay flat . . . I had to tie it back with a blue scrunchie. Hmmm.

Reporter: Cookie! Can you tell us why you didn't have a speech for Best in Show? Was what Mango said really true?
Cookie: Heh, well, no . . . Mango was very clever in covering it up for me, but, in the hustle and bustle, I forgot to write a speech. However, there wouldn't have been any use in that, because Clive was destined to win. I was rooting for him.
Reporter: What are you plans with Sweepy this Valentine's Day?
Cookie: Well, normally, I wouldn't say, but, I honestly don't know, so I don't see any harm in telling you that! (laugh)
Reporter: Are you going to be appearing in any other events?
Cookie: Oh, hopefully. I had so much fun!

That's it for now! I'd better make my blog rounds before it gets too late!

Oh, Channy, Mommy, Daddy, Sweepy in the Phillipines, guess what?

I won the Good Sport Category in MangoMinster!
Oh, I'm so excited! I get a tea-towel (whatever that is) from JD and Max (and a donation in my name to DogTrust), plus something from the 1000 Goldens Webshop! Yay!

I'm so happy!

Channy found some pics that she ment to upload, but she didn't get to. But I sniffed them out with my snooter! Sit, and I'll be right back! I just need to set up the pawjector!

This is my costume for my masquerade b-day party. I had a good time and got lots of noms and love!

I didn't like the mask much, so I took it off. Now you can see me beautiful face!

Here's a better view of my cape. Didn't Channy to a great job?

While Channy was doing schoolwork, I snuck a nap in her bed, and I'm not supposed to be up there! Look, I even got my monkey puppet to snuggle with. But she caught me, woke me up, and booted me off. Not without snapping a picture first, of course!

This is my entry for the Dog Pile section of Mango Minster! I know only the stuffies on top of me count, but, since I'm so small, I couldn't fit a lot of things on me, so I decided to go out with a bang! Stuffies everywhere!!!

And this is me holding up my favoritest food (it's even better than yogurt)! LETTUCE! Channy made a sandy-wich nom and put lettuce in it, but she let me have the stalks! TWO STALKS! There was even some leaf left on them! I had a good time nomming them, but I stopped when Channy took out the camera. I wanted to show all of you my favorite food! So I posed nice with my yummy lettuce noms. Mmmm!

In this picture, I'm lovingly helping Channy with her science project by posing with it ON MY HEAD. She got a really good grade for it because her science teacher laughed really hard when he saw the picture! He thought it was hilarious! Ha ha. Even though it was humiliating, I'm glad she got a great grade. :)

More news later. I'm very sleepy and I need to go to bed.

Lovely January Day

Aaah, it's January, and it's a new year! Channy and Mommy came back from their Christmas adventure in Montreal and New York, Channy got a camera, the sun is shining, the plants are sprouting, and I've got a nice hoard of snacks and breakfast cereal in my cupboard. Aaah, life is good!

Yesterday, Channy took me for the first walk she's given me for the year! It was great fun! First, she got me all tidy and dressed up. She had to give my face a trim, because I had yogurt crusted all over it, and I looked like I had a beard! But she got me all fixed up rather quickly.

Then Channy clipped my leash on, and we jumped into the elevator and headed off!

On the walk, we saw this scary notification. Yikes! Coyote on the loose! Channy didn't like the poster, and said it was biased against coyotes and tried to make them seem evil, but I thought otherwise. Maybe she'd agree with me if it wanted to eat her!

When we got back home, Channy went back to her schoolwork. She put my pillow on the other side of the room (as seen in the first picture), but I wanted to be closer to her! So I curled up under her desk. That wasn't a very good idea.
Then Channy got some homemade bread and cheese for lunch. She finished all the cheese, but left a piece of bread. I snarfed it when she wasn't looking! bol!
Usually she'd be mad, but she thought it was a little funny, so she snapped a coupled of pictures before she took it away.

She said I looked just like I did when I was a puppy. :)
