10 Things I love

Since I will be 10 years old in March I decided to do a post of 10 things I love to remind my folks about the number TEN and how many snacks I deserve DAILY. (man are they hard to train!!)

10. Tanner

Hey, he at least makes me look like the GOOD dog!!

9. Delivery food!

take out
Seriously, this a GENIUS idea. You call a number and then food just shows up at your house?!

8. Cowboy Pig!

Joey and Cowboy Pig
We have been buddies for YEARS and I can always count on him!!

7. Cuz

Quite simply, the best toy EVER MADE!

6. My Sleeping Bag

deep thoughts by Joe Stains
The place I can go to hide from Tanner, stay warm and do some deep thinking.

5. Mom and Dad

Come on, they are the ones we are trying to train here and I have heard positive reinforcement is a great way to train people!!


In the grocery store!
It is seriously the most perfect food ever made!

3. The Yankees

Yankees aren't going to do it this year...
The best team in BASEBALL!!!!

2. The Steelers

Go Steelers!
Seriously, who else would I wear a PINK hat for?!

1. SOPHIE!!!!

I mean my dog, just look at her...

SO I hope this top TEN list helps to train the humans!!

You still look like a total stud muffin in the pink hat Joey. But do you love Cowboy Pig more than Sophie?

Cheese is my absolute favorite, Joey! You totally deserve everything on your list.

I sure like Cowboy Pig, too!

Ok, Joe, I hate to come on with negative commentary BUT think about this:

10 Treats A Day will certainly put on some pounds. A handsome guy like you doesn't want to be Tubby like Tanner, do you?

Think this through!

Umm, Joey? If you're truly trying to train your humans, you might want to rank them ahead of CHEESE!

Your pal,

Blogger Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

That was a fun post!

I loved all ten things you posted about!

Except I am not allowed cheese, it causes exceptional stains......

My Ma said to bark to your peeps who you are trying to train, about another whisky, it is called "Lagavulin" plus one equally delicious called "Scapa". There is another one my parents got given at Christmas, but they have not tried yet, it is called "Ben Romach" supposed to be good though.

I have no idea what they are barking about but I said I would bark it on to youse.

love and whisky licks, Marvin xxxxxxx

Great list! I'm sure it will help!

How sad that you have to lobby your peeps for treats that you TOTALLY deserve, but there it is. At least you're going the positive reinforcement route. (I'd hate to see you using any other method.)

I can see that Sophie is touched that she beat out cheese & your parents. The real shocker to me was that she beat out Cowboy Pig! Whoa, man. You must be seriously smitten. You're in deep smit!

Goober love,
