Andy Wants to Tell ...

My brother and my sister both got to tell 5 weird things about themselves so I'm going to tell too! Of course, I'm so cute and perfect, there may not be five weird things about me but I will try to come up with something.

1. I'm always the last one to go into the day pen where we stay when Mom is at work. I know I'm supposed to go in there but I always want to make sure there isn't another option. (That is probably pretty normal except Roxie and Sammy are always sitting in there waiting for their treats.)

2. I am bowlegged in my back legs. When I am just standing, you can see how my back legs curve like I have been riding a horse ... not that I'm ever going to be doing that! Have you seen the size of those things???

3. I always take a toy (usually a tennis ball) outside with me even if I am just going out to do my business. Sometimes Mom has to wait until I have a good hold of the ball before she will open the door because I get all excited and then can't pick it up.

4. I love to play with tennis balls. I will throw one up in the air and chase after it. I will grab it by the fuzz, roll over onto my back and let it drop on me and roll to the floor. I will wiggle around on my back to grab it again just so I can drop it again.

5. I sit down when I eat my meals. Mom says she has never seen a dog that lounges while eating. I have done it since the very first meal Mom fed me when I was still a foster.

Ok, now I feel better. After Roxie and Sammy told all about themselves I wanted you to know me as well as you know them.

Andy, I am so glad you got to tell 5 wierd things about yoursself. I was thinking that they had left you out!! But Andy ... I sit down when I eat too!!!! My Mom thinks it is wierd too. I figure I may as well relax and enjoy my dinner.

My mummy will be delighted if i can sit & eat properly. I jus prefer to lay the food on the placemat before eating! hee hee

Andy, you're too cool for school! Strangely enough, I too eat sitting down on occasion, and I find it helps the digestive system. Perhaps you could share that little tidbit with your family so they don't find it too weird from now on! ;)

Somehow, I think telling them I do the same thing as a CAT will not help me reduce the perception that I am weird.

Hi there Andy,

my dog you've got the quizzical look and the lopsided grin down pat. What a dude.

And sitting down to eat your meal? Now that's class.

Chow for now,

Tin Tin xo

(who couldn't possibly be distracted from getting into the noshbowl straight away by sitting down or any other such activity!)

I think you guys are just great! I wish we could get together to play sometime. I don't sit down to eat but maybe I should try it sometime.

If we ever make it to North Pole or anywhere in Alaska, we are going to come visit you. But it will have to be in the summer or we would freeze!

Roxie, Sammy & Andy
