For the love of Dog!

Ryder here, I decided that since Mom is “too busy to update the collie blog,” that something had to be done.  So I am putting my paw down, I refuse to listen to any more of her excuses.  Is it my fault that she is so busy with Kori and Scarlett?   And the two of them are constantly bragging about how they get to go to handling class on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings to get ready for the show.  They think that being chosen to go to a dog show next week is some sort of big deal!

 And Scarlett keeps barking on and on about her upcoming trip to the Collie National dog show!  She thinks that it’s all going to be some great adventure!  And Kori got to go the National last year, when she was only six months old!  It's all the two of them bark about!   I secretly wish I was going Like I care about going for a long car ride to the middle of the country!  I will get to go to doggie camp while they are away, and that is lots more fun! 
And if all of this wasn't enough, Mom is working on Saturdays now!  She said it's to earn overtime, for the trip!  But I am barking mad, because I am not getting enough "mom and me" time! 

This is what I think of all this dog show preparation!

So this weekend I am putting on my leash, attaching the handle to my mom, and dragging her out on a hike!  My trails are calling my name!  It had better not rain on Sunday! 

PS - Mom did tell me that I can go to the National next year.  She said next year will be my year!  I guess she is partially forgiven.  Do you think if I sleep in their suitcase they will get the hint?



  1. Oh Ryder my beautiful little friend I know exactly how you feels even tho we don't have no show dogs at our house, Stellie constantly tries to show me up cos she can twirl and dance for cookies and I can onlies "sit". Mom says she is proud of me for learnin to 'sit" but I think Stella laughes behind my back. Karma got her in the butt literally tho when she had to go see Dr. Frankenvet this week, so the lesson learned is don't laugh at the Magster!!
    Mom said she would take us to the dog park first time ever tonight...hopefully she will not be to tired cos then I will have to poop in my little dog bed to pay her back.

  5. Ryder, we hope uYou get that nice walk tomorrow. We think we might get some rain here but we will try to keep it away from your area.

    And just so you know, your Mom loves you very much.

  6. I feel like this whenever Mom leaves the house without me. It stinks.

  7. Good for you Ryder - you put all 4 paws down!

  8. Well Ryder, if you have to take over, that's what you gotta do! It was good of you to step up and let us know what is going on. I think that going to doggie camp sounds way more relaxing than a show, don't you?

  9. Is the National outdoors? We may still be blanketed in snow!

  10. I'm glad you put your paws down.

    I'm hoping we have a nice weekend too, nothing like the wind in your fur to help you shake the blues.

  11. What's for dinner? I'm thinking some spaghetti? Maybe a nice juicy t-bone with sweet potato fries?
