We poop, You Scoop: A Poem for Dad

In honor of Father's Day, this post is dedicated to my awesome Papa Bear!

There once was a papa bear named Dad
And his animals thought he was rad
He pet them and played day in and day out
And we knew he always loved us, even when he would shout
We're sorry for all of the damage we cause
like getting in the garbage, and getting poop on our paws
We know that we are a money drain on the family
and that we cause your thousands of dollars annually,
But we hope that the love that we show you will do
And that since we're your best friends through and through
So Dad, in honor of Fathers day, just this once outside you can poop
And we'll follow behind you and this time we'll scoop!

From Mylo, Colt and Midnight...Happy Father's Day Daddy!

Colt and Mylo vs. The Lemon

So, there's been this trend on YouTube recently of dogs reactions to citrus. It is hilarious. Their owner gives them a lemon or lime and the results are entertaining and belly laugh inducing. Check out this video to see what I mean:


So, being the great dog Mom that I am, I thought I would let Mylo and Colt give it a try. I was laughing in anticipation of their hilarious reaction....

Leave it to my dogs to actually like the lemon.

Our new grass, Mom's new job and ruff its hot!

Hulllo everyone!

I am sorry it's been a while since I got my paws a click-clacking on this thing that blocks me from mom's lap, but its been a busy week at the Shepherd household.

We are so excited because about a week ago Mom and Dad got us new grass! Our backyard used to just be a mud pit, but now we get to play and roll around and not worry about tracking mud in the house. I love grass like Colt loves to pee on mom's flowers.

Mom started her new job. Not sure what a summer nanny is, but she comes home smelling like three kids, sidewalk chalk and another dog everyday. I don't like that she's hanging out with another pup besides me and Colt, but ruff, I guess I'll have to get used to it. Maybe if I pee on her before she leaves next time they'll know she's MY human...better not--Mom hates when I pee in the house. Colt is revolting by pooping inside every chance he gets. He must be sneaking extra breakfasts because I have no idea how he poops that much.

It's been very hot outside melt your dog cookie hot. So hot that I'm thinking about shaving my fur. Ha just kidding, I would be ridiculed at the park. Mom doesn't let us outside much during the day because it's over 100 degrees outside.

I love that our new house has cold floors. When I come back inside I melt into it to cool off. Good thinking, Mom and Dad!

Confessions of a Colt

 I am a dog.

Jes, it is true. I like to do a lot of dog things; I like to chase the leetle amarillo ball in the yard, sleep at the end of de bed and even lick my private parts just because I can.

I do not, however, like to be outside. This drives mi madre and padre LOCO! I whine so I can go chase the ugly leetle squirrel, do my business and then whine like a bebe to come back inside.

Madre always sayz "Coltito! Why can't you just be a dog and stay outside? We worked so hard so that you could have a back yard and be able to be outside all the time and play with your brother!"

But I do not care. Outside? It is hot. It is dirty. There is no couch for me to curl up on inside. Jes, I have toys outside. Jes, I have agua. But there is something about squishy grass that just does not do it for me. I even will poop on the deck if it is raining. Ick. Soggy grass. It makes me cringe just thinking about it.

Mylo thinks outside is the best. He will run around, and lay in the sun and take dog naps...but then again...we all know he is pretty stoopid. Oh come on, you know you were thinking it too.
