20/Jul/18 I'm going to lay in the way


Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

I have this "thing" where I just love being in the way.

I will select a door way, and will plop myself to the floor and wait...  and wait... and wait...  I'm patient.  Then I hear my humans walking towards me.

I smile (on the inside, cause a dog smiling would be frickin creepy)

I keep my eyes closed.  I can feel them trying to step over me.

That's when I will get up.  HA HA  I've got them trapped.  They got a leg on either side of me.  I've made them drop stuff to the floor while they have been trying to tip toe over me.

Now, the Big Guy just doesn't care.  He will look at me and give me a nudge with his foot and tell me to get the frig out of his way.  I think he's on to me.

Damn, I've got to get up now.

The floor was so cool, just in that spot.

Now I've got to go find another spot that is going to cool me off.

Have you ever been in their kitchen?  They don't have an island in their kitchen.  They got me instead.  I'm am the island that they have to walk around.

The Big Guy can move islands though.  He doesn't care that I've found the cool spot in the kitchen.  He can be a prick some days.

19/Jul/18 it's too warm for this fur coat


Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Once again, I am laying there and... FLASH!  The Big Guy got up earlier than normal and is taking my picture.  You can see one of the many leashes that I own.  This one is a rope that goes around my neck.  It doesn't choke me.  You can bet, when I "take off", I barely notice that I've got that leash on me.

Yesterday, we went for a walk between showers.  We didn't get all the rain that the weather people were forecasting.

Hmmm... the camera just went off again.  He took a picture of me for tomorrow's blog.  Geesh, how he loves taking pictures of me.

Yesterday the Big Guy was making some food, but he was putting a lot of onions in it.  So that means that I couldn't have any of their leftovers.  One of the items he made was Sweet and Sour Pork with pineapple.  It smelled so wonderful.  But I don't do so well with pork.

A few weeks back, I was licking my paws.  A lot!  Tonya did some research on the internet and she found that there must be something that I'm allergic to, that I am eating.  Now the Big Guy cooks a lot with onions.  Tonya will often give me table scraps.  So the Big Guy figures, there must have been something, like onions, in the left overs that Tonya was giving me.  Ever since then, I am no longer licking my paws.  So what ever it was that I was allergic to, I'm no longer eating.

I can see that the Big Guy is anxious to go watch Big Brother.  He likes that show.  Well, not just that show, but it's one of the ones that he follows.  I will admit, the humans on that show, they are not always on their best behavior.  Then they get all upset at the smallest stuff.

18/Jul/18 hello sexy, wink wink


Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

OK, so I thought I was making a "sexy face"...  well to be honest, when the Big Guy is holding the camera about two inches from your face, it's hard not to wince when the flash goes off.

It's really humid here.  

If the humans move, they sweat.  

We are due to get a bunch of rain today.  

Now, that's subjective.  Some places get a lot of rain.  But for us, it's going to be a lot of rain today.  About 20 mm when it's all said and done, just under and inch of rain.  I know, I know, some people are saying that they can get that and more in one down burst.  But I don't live in Central Canada, where a storm can dump that amount of water in about 5 minutes.

Right now, the Big Guy is looking at the thermometer that he has next to the computer and it is registering about 25 C.  That's about 78 F on the old scale.  I know that not everyone that reads my blog is on the metric system.

But, the Big Guy will still ask for a 2 x 4 vice asking for a 38 x 89.  It's also a 8 foot stud, vice a 2.44m long stud.  Although I'm sure it works out when building stuff, as there are houses being built all the time.  As an example of this, there is two new houses just around the corner from where I live, but they haven't sold.  I think they are asking way too much money for them.  There just isn't anyone that can afford them.

Well, gotta see if the Big Guy can't take me for a walk early today.

17/Jul/18 are my whiskers too long


Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Each day, when the I see that the Big Guy is going to be taking me for a walk, I loose my mind.  I just can't help myself.

I will start running back and forth.  From the back door to the living room, URGING Tonya to hurry up.

I will vocalize.  Not barking.  Not whining.  But definitely expressing that I am having a "moment". 

Then, when I see the leash.  Well, that's it...  game over...  I start doing this bunny hop thing.  Or is it a kangaroo?  Either way, I'm up on my back legs.

Then there is the small nipping that I will do as the Big Guy is trying to attach the leash to my collar.  Oh he doesn't like that one bit.  He has grabbed my fur to get my attention a few times.

That only works for a couple minutes at best.

Then, it's to get me out the door and start moving down the driveway.  

I think it may work best if Tonya was to get ready first and wait for us at the end of the driveway.

Then again, that may not work too good for the Big Guy as I would likely try to pull as hard as I could to catch up with Tonya.  So that idea may not be the best.  

But as a rule, myself and the Big Guy are waiting for Tonya to meet us at the end of the driveway.
