Old dog, new tricks

Old dog, new tricks

My Man is coming home!

Hello everyone. I heard some news. They think I don’t understand because I choose to be aloof sometimes. After all, my blog is thoughtful and erudite. I have a persona to maintain. Anyhoo, back in March my Man went away. I never really understood why, but my Woman and my Boy were not happy about it. Evelyn the Embarrassment and I were ok, but we liked our Man a lot. So when my Woman whispered into my ear that he is coming back, I didn’t even blink. But I’m happy.

Dakota’s Top 10 List about his Man:

10. He puts ice in the kitchen water bowl, just for fun.

9. He never laughed when I tried to lift my leg to pee…after my leg was stolen.

8. He makes my Boy leave me alone when I need my space.

7. He walked in the woods with me before the leg elves took my leg by stealth.

6. He installed the dog door.

5. He talks baby talk to me, but just the right amount. Not too much.

4. He makes Evelyn bug off.

3. He was so good to our Spirit dogs before they crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

2. He paid the vet bills.

1. He stopped the car for me when I was dumped!

I was practicing how I am going to meet him when he comes home. Whaddya think?

    Dakota, I think that is the perfect way to greet him 🙂

  • Dakota Dawg

    Thank you. I’ve been practicing. It’s hard work sometimes!

    Hey Dakota, I hope everyone in the house is as happy as you that your man is coming home. Well maybe not Evelyn…
    Ice cubes and dog doors- sounds like he will be useful to have around.

    Dakota, I would love a greeting like that and I bet your man will too (well, I would want some kisses as well…).

    I would be very sad if my pawp went away for so long! I’m excited that your man is coming home. Your man sounds good. My pawp can’t install a dog door, but he has his good points. He has never peed on my bed either. That counts for a lot.

    Give him some kisses from me. I am totally into kissing men I don’t know. 🙂

    • Dakota Dawg

      Abby, I will probably give kisses, too. You can come help if you want! I know that you like to kiss strangers. My Woman showed me that picture of you on the couch and said “I would warn you about her if she didn’t live so far away.”

      • AbbysMom

        If I knew how to figure out the bus schedule, I would be there, man. And I would be ALL OVER YOU. 😉

        Big kisses.

        • Dakota Dawg

          Greyhound, right? I can text it to you.

          • AbbysMom

            Greyhound, ‘natch! Yes, text it to me. Oooo. A rendezvous with an older man! I’m very excited. Now I just have to save up the money from my modeling career. Let’s see… adding, adding, adding, carry the one… um, so far I have zero.

            I’ll keep working on it though!

  • etgayle

    geesh, who wouldn’t want to be greeted like that!!! wonderful news…and the ice cubes…charon says she’s especially happy when don (aka ron) comes home and adds ice cubes to her g & t.

    thanks for sharing your great news!!!

    gayle & charon

    • Dakota Dawg

      Gayle, I am confused. Is he Ron or is he Don? Or RonDon or something? I’m not a big g & t guy myself. I prefer deer poop. I wonder how that would be over ice…

  • anjl

    You look Pawsome in that photo Dawg!
    and we support your woman and wish you all happy hearts!
    Hope that man is practicing too!

    Your friend
    (who doesnt write enough)

    • Dakota Dawg

      Of course you don’t write enough, Bud, but you’re excused. I’ve seen the size of your feet. They haven’t made a keyboard for feet that size yet. Give them time.

  • fortisdad

    That’s great news Dakota!

    I might add you guys are hilarious 🙂

    Brett and Spirit Fortis

    • Dakota Dawg

      Well thanks Brett, but who is hilarious? I think Abby’s pretty funny, but I know there were margaritas being thrown back at her place tonight. With salt, even.

      • AbbysMom

        My mom and pawp are havin’ a pawty! But they are not sharing the margs with me. No tequila for dogs. humph. Who made that rule?? There are not a lot of rules here at my house, but they do have that one…

  • riosmom

    Oh, D-Dawg, that’s pawsome news! And your greeting looks just about perfect to me.


    PS: my mom won’t let me have tequila either, and she doesn’t even let me have the last drops of beer anymore either. She’s gotten so uptight since I had to have that stoopid kemo.

    • Dakota Dawg

      Hey Woo! It’s not fair that you can’t get likkered-up any more. Kemo wasn’t your idea, right? I can send you a bottle if you want. Lemme know.

  • wyattraydawg

    Hey Dakota, I’m glad your family is back together. Everypawdy needs family.

    • Dakota Dawg

      Howdy Sheriff Wyatt! I think this is gonna be great! I’m gonna like my Man even more now because of some things I heard. Like, he was kind of a bonehead, and he’s been in the doghouse. Doesn’t that sound pawesome? He and I can go to the doghouse with our bones, together!

  • Izzy, Ted's sister

    D Dawg,
    You running towards him will definitely make him smile. I sure hope all works out for all!!!!
