My Hero

I am just starting to watch the TV. Not like Stephen does, he sits at right angles to the TV typing on his computer while movies stream and stream. Not like Kathy does, she is like she is trying to teach me to be, totally focused, never taking her eyes off the movie, (unless I start sniffing around, can you believe they are trying to teach me to ring a bell when I need to go potty?). No I watch TV for a few seconds to a minute and then ignore it.

And to be honest, I am not a total fanpup of Fu Fighters, they aren't bad, but they aren't in the most played category of my iHowl player. Anyway, I looked up on the screen and Dave Grohl was on crutches, singing sitting down. Hmmm, Stephen isn't walking right now. When we go out, he takes his knee stroller and in the house he moves around on his rolling chair. I watched intently to see if I could get a clue. While I am often a fan of the unplugged style of music, I like the rendition of My Hero on their Music Video better. I also like the cover by Paramore at Camp Arif Jan Kuwait.

Stephen and Kathy have left the entertainment room for the living room. Good thing, that is the biggest mat in the whole house.

Kathy went to Big Lots

I love it when Kathy goes to Big Lots, they have really cool, yes, yes, chew toys and for less. That is a good thing, now that I am a seven month old, they do not last very long. Stephen and Kathy give them each a name and I am able to find them by name. This one is Lion.

Riding in the FJ

Usually when we go out, we take the truck and I ride in the bed in my crate. But today we took the FJ. I ride in the back in my restraint harness. Kathy had to run some errands, so Stephen let me sit up front with him. For some reason, he calls the seat a husbands bench?

Stephen, that is not a bench. Ah Yogi, but in your great grandfather's day, they had benches for men to sit on and canines to wait under while the ladies perused and purchased. It is not so common anymore. So we will sit here in the vehicle.

While we were waiting and cuddling, Stephen put on some music. The set is at the bottom of this blog post, Stephen's LinkedIn friend, James Di Rienzo, recommended the arrangements.

While we were listening to the music, Stephen let me borrow his iBone. I got a message from Malibu from the Herriot pack. His pack mom, Rebecca, won something at the fair. Her two pigs weighed in at 281 and 282 pounds. Luckily they were built and colored like twins too! Boy, don't you wish you could be there, I bet there are some awesome smells.

Here's some music for your playlist...

Ukulele Instrumental
Chet Atkins performs "Hawaiian Wedding Song"
Stephen Bennett & Joscho Stephan - Wonderful World
Arlo Guthrie: Waimanalo Blues
Live at the Kapena House - Waimanalo Blues
Born And Raised Acoustic
Byrds of Paradise Ep.12A (He Hawaii Kakou I Ka Pu'wai 6,23,94) ft.JLH

PeeMail from Malibu (Herriot pack)

Hi yogi. My pack mom, Rebecca, is at the fair all week with the other creatures she takes care of. Thought you'd enjoy seeing all her other friends. 

She calls them; pigs, Pygmy and boat goats, Jacob sheep, broiler and layer chickens.

She tells us how much she misses us every morning and night!

Take care. Malibu

The new normal

Stephen is on medicine to try to save his smelly toe. We have to give it to him every six hours, 6, 12, 6, 12 which means we do not get as much sleep as we would like so we take naps. I wold love to write more, but yawn .....

James De Rienzo suggested Stephen should play Chet Atkins performs "Hawaiian Wedding Song"

PeeMail from Malibu, Mist, and Runtie

Dear Yogi, we sleep a lot. Runtie sleeps belly up like dad. Take care and oh, that animal in your previous post is a cat, be careful, they are very sharp. M.

What is this? Pretty sure it is not a dog.

Stephen is listening to Styx, Blue Collar Man (long nights). I am pondering. I saw an animal at the Timber Ridge Hospital, (I am getting my extra rabies shot so I can go to Hawaii). Where's Hawaii? Is it further than Banker's Spit, my favorite park?

Dogs have four paws. This has four paws.
Dogs have fur. This has fur.
Dogs have tails. This has a tail, but it flips back and forth rhythmically instead of wagging.

But it is not a dog, at least I don't think so. It has funny eyes. I wanted to Sniff it in Real Life, but I didn't think it would be a good idea.

I did a Sniffle search on the Internet and found a picture that looks like it. Can you tell me what it is?
