Travel

For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

I'm in Trouble

When Bogey was here he taught me this neat trick. When we were hanging out, he was telling me the things he does to make Michael and Laura go crazy. Nancy thought we were just chewing our bones in the bed, but that's when we were plotting.
Bogey looks innocent, but he's just waiting for Nancy to leave so he can push that gate aside--see how she left it open?
"Really, so garbage is the best? Better than my sweet potato chips?"
See, he waits until everyone is out of the house and then he looks for things that taste good. Kitchen garbage is his favorite. I had no idea the goodies in the garbage tasted so good. So, tonight I decided to try it on my own. I didn't wait until Nancy went out, so she heard me. It was a disappointment because there wasn't anything but paper in the bag, so I didn't get anything tasty like Bogey does. That didn't matter to Nancy, she was shocked. Big deal...it's just a bag for crying out loud!

What a mess I made. Nancy said she should have taken a picture of it to make me feel ashamed or hung garbage around my neck. That wouldn't have worked. Why she even called me a slow learner because she thinks I didn't learn to wag my tail until I was nine years old. Well, that's not true...I just didn't want to wag my tail. So there.

Bogey even eats pens and eye glasses and other things that could hurt him so Nancy clears the room and locks us in when he visits.

He did get manage to get into trouble when he was here last time when she left one gate open by mistake. He's still a kid and he gives himself away, and he acts ashamed and sorry when she hollers at him. Nancy had no idea I was in on the caper, too.
This was in a post a week or so ago--Bogey so dumb--he gives himself away.
Nancy rarely yells at me, but she was mad, tonight. It doesn't really bother me because I decided the best course of action is to act bored and not look at her when she is hollering at me. Bogey may have paid attention when Nancy scolded him, but I'm master of this place and I refuse to look like I'm sorry. So, snap away, Nancy, I'm not going to look.
Actually, yes I might do it again if you must know.
Still not going to look.
She got bored after a while and put the camera away. She's talking to me, again. I have to teach Bogey how to handle her.

  1. Oh Jack - you need to have Nancy hang one of those dog shame signs around your neck! I know you didn't mean to be naughty - those smells are just too enticing. but you need to be good for Nancy so she doesn't have to clean up messes. Otherwise, she may hurt her back and then you won't be going on a trip. Now, that wouldn't be so fun would it. Hugs, Jack, and be good!!

    1. Yes, Ms. Donna, Nancy mentioned one of those. I won't have a choice about being good or bad--Nancy said she's not going to be lazy and leave the bag of garbage by the door until she goes out. It will go out as soon as she ties it! :( I will be good--I want to go on the trip so bad.

  2. Jack is such a character, I can't help but laugh every time he writes something! This is one of the funniest yet. Better get Jack an orange jumpsuit so he'll know what it's like in prison.

    1. Yes, Jack is a character, Russ. That's for sure. He'd probably love wearing an orange jump suit. He really doesn't know that he's done anything wrong. If he does, he's keeping his feelings hidden! This is the first time in 12-1/2 years that he's ever gone near the garbage. And, it is true, he wagged his tail for the first time when he was 9 years old and rarely wags it now except in his sleep! Lizzie on the other hand used to knock things over and was always wagging her tail. As you know, when you live with pups for a long time you realize how different they are.

  5. Jack for goodness sake, you need to be teaching Bogey the right things to do not learning the wrong things from him. Really! You are far above garbage. I am so surprised that you would stoop so low after all these years of being above all that nonsense.

    1. Sheesh...a guy does one thing wrong around here and the ladies get all upset. Mr. Russ, I need you on my side, here. I do take care of Nancy. Since her back is feeling better and she takes me for walks, I don't pull her at all. I walk right by her side. That's gotta count for something.

      As far as garbage, who knows. I might hit the jackpot next time...a steak! Hmmm...not likely because Nancy said she'll never leave a bag on the floor, again. Oh, well, I tried.

    1. You're right! I never even thought about what was in those white bags before. I wonder how many hamburgers I've missed over the years! Well, you can be sure there'll be no more trouble...Nancy won't forget to put the garbage out as soon as she ties the bag and then there's the darn gates when she goes out. Bogey and I don't have a chance.

  7. Jack if you don't behave yourself, Sheriff Joe is going to issue you some of those pink skivvies he's so famous for. Then everyone will know what you've been up to. You certainly do know how to handle Nancy. Thank goodness she loves you so much.

  8. Oh Nancy, Jack is just to clever LOL But I think we both know he was ashamed no matter what he tries to make us think.
    Hugs to Jack and kisses from Fred
