My Challenging Day--by Bailey Blue

For us Canine Professionals, each day unfolds with a combination of intellectual challenge and acute stimulation. Problems to solve, phenomena to explain, difficult challenges to meet... Life is indeed complex!

Typically my busy day begins on the deck, where I take note of all the things to be accomplished and set my daily goals.

I find it helpful to get a little exercise by climbing the stairway to Grandma's apartment, where I scan the neighborhood for intruders, vermin, and extraterrestrial beings from the Palin Cluster of Nebula M48.

The "environmental scan" complete, I return to the Quarterdeck to take command and begin my day.

Since I must constantly exercise my powers of command, I usually undertake a little "voice workout" to ensure that I am able to communicate my desires to the human untermenschen.

After my elocution practice, I stroll the Quarterdeck once more to ensure the readiness of all hands.

I then practice my powers of persuasion on Bozo, who typically requires motivation at this hour of the morning...

Then I eviscerate a green 'Cuz because I like the way it squeaks when held in one's teeth.

Buster intrudes upon my personal space, so I proceed to put him in his proper place...

Reminding him that the penalty for Failure to Pay Proper Obeisance to the Diva-Goddess of All Terriers is prompt decapitation, I give Bozo a brief piece of my mind...

By now, it's time to take the male human servant for a walk, so I bring out the leash!

Humans are rather slow learners, but after awhile, he has the hang of it. "Just follow your shadow," I tell him!

Then, there's the obligatory fireplug...

After my walk, it's time to settle into some wanton pillow-jumping and barking-out-the-window with Bozo.

Then, we con the unsuspecting Human Lackey into giving us some treats. It's fun when he has to extract both his hands from our locked jaws!

As the afternoon draws to a close, it's time for Quality Time with my Blue 'Raffy!

Blue Raffy is my very best buddy, and he goes everywhere with me. One might say that he "wears well" with time!

As my arduous day comes to a close, I take time to reflect upon my many accomplishments before I fall fast asleep...

I tell you--these are exciting times to be a dog !

Your faithful correspondent,

Bailey Blue

Do you want to know what my mom said? She said that you're much, much chattier than I am, Bailey! What the heck does that mean?!

Love ya lots,

You certainly lead a busy life. We love the HUdson Bay jacket. Our Mom had one that she loved until one day one of her dogs ate it. That was long before we came along, but she still remembers the incident.
