An Extra Special Post

You all might be wondering why this post is extra special... Well I'll tell ya why... I have blogged for well over a year, and I know I still haven't blogged as much as you'd all appreciate, but this blog is extra special 'cause it marks my 100th post! Yup, I've blogged 100 blogs, and I've still got many more blog posts to come!

Anyway, after I came home from camping last weekend, can you guess where I went? Strait to the tub. I hate baths. I've probably told you all so many times that I hate baths, but it's true. I don't struggle to get away or anything, but I put my tail between my legs and my head goes down, and I look up with sad puppy dog eyes. You'd think that would be enough for the humans to take me out of the tub right away and set me free again, but all they do is complain about something, um, what was it? I think they call it "stink". They also mention "dirty". And a while later, after I look like a miserable drowned rat, they rejoice and say "clean", and "nice". I think I look much cuter when I'm dry and fluffy, right? I suppose I'll never get why the humans are happier when I'm soaked to the skin with water and shampoo. Funny, I wonder why they don't like it when I give myself my very own bath with "pond water" and "mud"?

Anyway, now to get down to the point. There is one good thing that comes with a bath. That's the part where you get to dry off! No need for towels when you've got carpet and couches to use! Do any of you guys do this?

Now, my good friends George and Velcro tagged me for a meme! Here goes...

What is your name? Sparky.

If you could change your name what would it be? Hmmm, well, maybe I'd change it to "Super Dog" or "Sparky the Great". Does that sound good?

What is your pet's name (it can be a webkinz or a real pet)? Let's see, the cats are the human's pets, so I guess they're mine too, right? Their names are White Cat, Rascal, and Marble.

If you could change your pet's name what would it be? Change the cat's names?! Ooooh, now that would be good! But I'd better not tell you what I'd name them, 'cause I might get into trouble...

What is your brother or sisters name? My brother's name is Buddy, and I have two sisters named Peanut and I think the other one was Olive. I haven't seen Olive for about 7 years, and Peanut for about 5 years, and Buddy I saw about 3 years ago. I'd love to see them all again!

If you could change their name what would it be? I don't think I would change their names...

Now tag as many people as letters in your new name for yourself. Hmmm, well there are quite a few letters in my new names, so how about I just tag 5 dogs? They are...

I hope you'll all have a GRRRReat weekend comin' up, and stay cool!

Hero said...

100 posts truly is a great feat!! Congrats!! I like to get baths, but sometimes I like to rub myself all over my dad's stinky clothes and sheets. What kind of dog wants to smell like fruits and flowers?! I sure don't! Sweat and dirt smells so much better to me.

parlance said...

Sparky, what an achievement - one hundred postings! Congratulations.
I've passed on an award to your blog because I like reading about your adventures. Come on over some time and collect it.
The idea is that you would pass it on to five other blogs, but if you're like me you'll have trouble choosing just five from all the others you love, so don't worry about passing it on if it's too hard. Just enjoy it.

Smooches to you pal,,

CoCo said...

Good Job on your 100th post! I don't quite understand how you can hate the bath but love the pond water. I don't like any kind of water at all. If you check on one of my earlier posts, there is a picture of me drying off after a bath just like you did. I guess we are normal pups.


Jan's Funny Farm said...

Well, Sparky the Great, we're sorry you had to get a bath when you got home but what a time you had getting dirty!
