8 Random facts about Me.

1- I do not eat dog food. It's disgusting! Tastes like sawdust. Cat food, on the other hand, has more flavor...

2- I love terrorizing the mailman! There's quite the story to that. Maybe I'll post about it another day... but let me say one thing, that mailman is one scaredy-cat! Heh heh.

3- I run sideways. My humans say that I seem to be running more and more sideways as I get older... ?

4- I am a super jumper! I'm sure you all know that. I jump up 6-foot sea walls, I jump from the ground to the roof of the van, I jump fences, ...

5- I am an escape artist. If my humans put me in the backyard, I always find a way for me to escape to the front and go on my daily walks, making sure everything is in order in my neighborhood.

6- If my humans give me really really really tasty food, I'll hide it. I used to hide the food under the couch cushions, until Lizzy's mom found out. Now I've switched to hiding the food in humans shoes. Sometimes when nice visitors are over, I'll stuff some food in their shoes just as a nice little thank-you present for visiting.

7- Sometimes... this is hard to admit... but sometimes ... I think I'm a cat. I know, it probably came as a shock to all of you! But it's true. I don't know what to think. My humans keep on telling me that I'm a dog, but... If I wasn't a cat, then how can I jump so high? And why do I love cat food? And why do I sneak up on prey in cat-style? And why do I sleep all curled up like a cat? And why do I climb trees? And why do I have sharp claws? It just doesn't make sense! I'm sure I must be a dog, but I still feel like a cat... why can't I be something else? Cat's are the absolute worst things to be!

8- I'm handsome. Don't you think? All the girls just love me. Heh heh.

Well there's all the 8 random facts about myself. Now I am going to tag...

7. Freda

Hi, Sparky
Thanks for sharing those facts about you. That let us know you better, but... I am impressed with that thing that you believe you are a cat!!! Grab your markers and write 200 times " I am a dog... I am a dog... I am a dog!"
Have a good night

Charlie said...

Sparky, I agree -- you're very handsome!! And you can climb trees?? That's awesome!

Anonymous said...

Hammer said...

Hi Sparky
Maybe you were a cat in a past life time. That's okay. You're just extra interesting as a dog. I'd love to see you chasing the postman. Be careful though when you go on your neighbourhood walks. You're way too cute and someone might snatch you up.
Love from Hammer

Sophie Brador said...

You are especially handsome when you think you are a dog. Cats are scary. they scratch.


Amber-Mae said...

Oh, thanks for sharing those facts about you Sparky! Hehe, I agree. Dog kibbles taste like sawdust but the cat kibbles taste nicer. I wonder why we cannot eat more of cat kibbles than dog kibbles? They have fishier taste... I think you are handsome altho you are quite matured.

Love licks,

Oh dear.. you really do think you are a kitty sometimes huh. Well, I guess it's ok cos sometimes I pretend that I am something else too..


Hi Sparky,
Thanks for sharing. We love getting to know our doggy pals better. You can do quite a bit like a cat but we still think you are a cute DOG.

Sparky, I've missed reading your blog. You are so fun. I met a kitten this past weekend that walks sideways. Not that you needed to be reminded of your cat-like similarities. But it was funny to watch.

Hi Sparky

As you are feeling so cat like I thought you might like the following poem which was written by my typists mother.

The Pussy

A pussy died and went to heaven, his life had not been good.
He passed through the pearly gates and by St Peter stood.
St Peter said "what can I do to make things up to you"?
The pussy said "a cushion please and tasty bits to chew."

Later in came little mice who too had poorly fates,
They told St Peter they would like some pairs of roller skates.
The next day St Peter asks the cat "Is he O.K. and how he feels"?
The cat said "Hey! the cushions great and oh! those meals on wheels."

You ARE handsome, and one of the best jumping pups I've ever seen! Thanks for sharing, man!

Goober love & admiration,

Amici said...

You think you're a cat? Seems like you compare yourself to a cat quite well. Dog/cat in matter what...we still think you are awesome!

g9ine said...

Cat food is respectable. I'll indulge every once in a while. It's not low brow like my sister and her barkccoli and asparagus habit.


Pug Mommy said...

The pugs love cat food too!
