Does My Butt Look Funny?

Dog Dad is a bit of a warden.  I get put behind bars while he sleeps or if he goes out.  Great Auntie Essex gets to roam around, why not me.  I've tried to show Dog Dad I'm a big dog by drinking out of Essex's water bowl and even went out for a walk with Essex and Dog Dad this morning for the first time.  Toward the end I tried to get Dog Dad to step on my paw, so he would carry me.  I finally succeeded three-quarters way through the walk.

Dog Dad has been talking about my tail.  He says it makes my butt look funny because there is a sudden line where the tail turns so much darker than the rest of my fur.  Harrumph, I think he is just jealous he doesn't have a tail.

I love my Great Auntie Essex and follow her around at times.  If I forget my dog manners she will put me in my place.  All of a sudden there will be a RRRRRRR, she is standing over me and I'm on my back on the ground, yelping.  I know she likes me because Dog Dad caught us playing together on Friday.

Hi Sherman!
Sorry you are in puppy jail. If you learn your manners fast, I am sure you will be allowed to roam the house with Essex soon. You are too funny--next time just ASK Dog Dad to carry you! You don't want owee toes!
As for your butt---Dog Dad told us about it in chat...and it is TOOOO cute! I love it! You have a DISTINCTIVE, totally individual butt!
Hugs & Howls,

hmmmm maybe they had a put a different tail on you shermee - maybe they ran out of brown ones and gave you a black on instead. I am sure when your dad dog trusts you - he will let you have the house to yourself.

I remember puppy jail and it is the worst! I don't think your butt looks funny but I am a boy dog and really shouldn't admit to even looking at your butt - LOL!

You just have to prove to Dog Dad that you won't eat the sofa. Or accidentally 'water' the living room floor. Pretty soon I'm sure, you're be free to roam with Great Auntie!

Mack said...

I am jealous of your tail too - it is awesome!
Sounds like your Great Aunt is a wonderful teacher!
Your pal,

Congrats to your Dad and your Auntie Essex on the new addition to the family! You're a cutie!
