My Friend Earl

Earl and I have been pals for awhile now. I met him in Portland last winter (I wrote a post about it here) and he has been one of my most faithful and sturdy toys. Tug of war, flinging him across the room, digging my teeth into his skin…he’s been through it all and stayed by my side loving every minute of it. But I’m here to tell you about an unfortunate incident that happened recently. His foot is now no longer attached. I would go into depth about how it occurred, but I can truthfully say that I do not know the circumstances in how this happened. Could it have been Lily? Maybe. Could it have been the cat across the street that I’m terribly afraid of? Unlikely.

The fact of the matter is that we will never know…but what I DO know is that Earl and I are still friends despite the unfortunate foot amputation. And that’s what I call a good friend.

Flashback Friday {Me at the Fountain}

Jack Goldendoodle at Fountain

Hi guys. I was just reminiscing through some older pictures of myself and found this pic of me at the fountain. I told you guys last year about my day at the fountain in this post. My head is really fluffy but my legs are scrawny. Usually my legs are fluffy but when they’re wet like this I think I look kind of like a bobble head. Or a lion. I like the fountain.


Jack Goldendoodle Mac and Cheese Ball

The other night my human brother Luke brought home some fried mac and cheese balls leftover from his dinner at a restaurant. He casually set the container down for a moment, not realizing that the container was  dangerously close to the edge of the counter. I saw the opportunity and realized my nose could easily nudge the container from the counter to the floor. I couldn’t resist. I flung my snout up there and the next thing I knew, the container was right where I wanted it.

Needless to say, I was delighted to see that the mac and cheese balls were also rolling out onto the floor–within reach of my lips. I then took a quick look around to my left, and looked to my right. No one was around to witness what I was about to do. I snatched up one (or three) of those delectable cheese balls…and let me tell you, I LIKED IT. Until later that night, that is…when my tummy hurt. That’s when I felt some slight regret. But would I do it again?


8 Favorite Dog Collars (For the Modern Pup)

Jack The Goldendodle New Red Collar

Oh, hello. I got a new collar. It’s red and I like it. I even got a new name tag…I needed a new one because when I was a young sprout I always tried to chew up my name tag so it was all scratched up.

My mom got me this collar because I’ve been a really good boy lately. I think I look so handsome in it that I asked her to take a glamour portrait of me with it on. Once I realized how wonderful I looked with my new duds, I decided I’d like to start a collar collection. Because come on, I am the Pup of the Year after all…

Here are 8 of my favorite dog collars. Which one do you think I should add next to my collection?

I Taught Her Well

Lily and Toilet Paper

I may or may not have taught Lily about the wonderful fluffy white stuff that we can sneak out of the bathroom and shred to pieces (like this). Next I’m going to teach her how to throw all the cushions off of the sofa with our legs. She wants to be just like me. I’ll teach her some of my ways, but not all. After all, she’s still just a pipsqueak.
