16/Jul/19 yes, I do have big paws

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

When I was a puppy, and my non-furry Memere seen me for the first time, she was thinking, that I will have to grow into my paws.

Well, I would like to think, I've done so.  Rather well if I do say so myself.

I'm not sure what's up with the Big Guy, but he doesn't look like he is feeling all that well.  It could be getting a cold.  That does happen.

When they got home from work last night, Tonya and the Big Guy went outside to have a drink and relax.  Well the mosquitoes had other ideas.  So they didn't stay outside all that long.

So, normally when the Big Guy gets up, he is ready to make some breakfast.

But today, since he isn't feeling all that well, it looks like he is going to find himself on the couch and play some videos so that he can just nap on the couch.  He will make breakfast later on.

The Big Guy told me, he isn't really all that interested in his coffee.  Now that's saying something.

So, it's nap time for the Big Guy.  

Since he is going to be boring, I guess I will be napping as well.

15/Jul/19 are you looking at me

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

My non-furry brother, Marc, well he is in Egypt right now.  He is going to be there for a bit.  It's part of his job to go away and keep the peace in places that peace is hanging on by a thread.  I wonder if he has any doggies to pat while he is there.

When the Big Guy was in Golan Heights, there was a dog that was the camp mascot.  They gave the dog a rank of Sergeant.  This allowed him to go into any of the drinking places that was in camp.

I was checking the weather and there is thunderstorms forecasted for today.  So I expect that there will be a few snaps of thunder.  This should keep the people happy.

The Big Guy was telling me that he has never seen as much thunder and lightening, than the 1st year they had moved to North Sydney.  That would have been the Summer of 2007.  He said that it thundered and lightening and rained so much, he was mowing the lawn, about every three days.

So far, the most he has had to mow the lawn is about once a week.  Although he has more clean up to do on the side of the driveway.  Not that it should take a lot to get done.  But there is only a little bit of hedge that is left.

The Big Guy was looking at 3 trees that is on his property.  One in the back yard.  He says, he should have dealt with that when he moved here.  Now it's way too big to deal with on his own.  Then there is the two trees in his front yard.  They are actually a combination of several trees that have grown together.  In the Winter, they drop dead branches into the yard.  Yea...  not something that you want to do to the Big Guy's snow blower.  But that is a project for another day.

14/Jul/19 looking to see if there is any treat pieces on the floor

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

This morning, the Big Guy got up and he put his stove on to 350 F.  Then he put the coffee on.

He put some hamburger in a bowl and then started adding ingredients to the bowl.

Of course, NOW he has my attention.

He made some meat balls.  WELL...  of course he put onions in them.  What else did I expect him to do?

So now I can't have any.


I would have at least made a couple plain meat balls and kept them in reserve for...  well, for ME!

He baked them and eventually put them into his spaghetti sauce.  And can you guess what he put into the spaghetti sauce?

Frickin onions.  AGAIN with the onions.

What is his problem?  Doesn't he know that I don't do well with onions?  I bet he is doing this on purpose so that Tonya can't feed me any of the human food that he is making.

I may have to nip him on the arse next time he is cooking something.

13/Jul/19 I could be godzilla if there was little toys to play with

Good morning Cape Breton.

Maximus Handsomius here from my forever home.

Did you ever get to play with those little Army men as a child?  Do they even make them?  The Big Guy and his father used to play with them.  Back then, you had to make your own fun.

They would set up armies of these little soldiers on the living room floor.  Then they would get a piece of paper and fold it over many times.  This was the ammunition.  Then, they would get an elastic and hold it between their thumb and forefinger.  The folded piece of paper was then folded over the elastic and then pulled back and released.  This would fly into the army knocking the little soldiers over.

Who ever knocked down all the other little army, was the winner.

The Big Guy NEVER won.

That is just how life was.

Now, as the father, or the grand father, your expected to let the little person win.

Now, children are given participation medals.  They don't keep score when they play games.  They even have graduation when they left the lower grades.

This isn't how real life works.

They are setting up that generation to be so frustrated in real life.  Sometimes you loose.  People will take score.  That is just how life works.  You don't get a participation medal at work.  Your mommy is NOT going to yell at your boss when someone else gets promoted.  

Oh she might, but that wouldn't bode so well.

Perhaps these same people should have had a dog.  I like the participate in ANY game.  I win every time you come home.  Even if you would putting the garbage outside.  I'm just so excited to see you back in the house again.  Yup, just give me a Hot Dog every so often, and I think I just won the food lottery.  A steak is worth a million dollars to me.

Yup, these people really should have had a dog.  Their life would be so much better.
