Proper Butt Sniffing

Apparently I have been remiss in properly introducing myself. Lets start over. My name is Bonnie MacKinnon Love of Maitlands Kennel. I will be 2 years old in December. I live in Apollo Beach FL, on the bay south of Tampa. With Puffy the snitch. Wait. That's not his real name. You won't beleive what his real name is....it's WOLVERINE. That's what happens when you let an 8 year old boy name you. How embarrasing. His name evolved from Pupster, to Poopster, to Pooper (which is also on his name tag.....snicker) to Puff. At least I get called Princess by the Mr. SHE calls me Thunder Butt. And I don't think she means it in a nice kind of way.


Now, about the bloggie name. It's one SHE had that she wasn't using. She would send emails to friends about once a month regaling them with what she called Bonnie Tales. One of her friends suggested she blog them. Since this bloggie already existed and was dormant, she just started using it and did not change the name as there are links on various spacey places and it was just too complicated to change. You'll notice at first she did the blogging from her point of view, but then noticed most everyone else blogged from their point of view, so now I gets to do the blogging.

So, Lacie, my middle name isn't Scrappy, although that is a good name for me as I am always scrapping her stuff into itty bitty bits. And I did add a bit of info to the profile for Max. He's so cute. It's a shame he's taken. And so far away.


Now for the Puffalump.....




This is Puffy the Ancient. He is 16.5 years old. Mostly blind, mostly deaf, mostly teefless, mostly grumpy all the time. He is a metrosexual guy. Bit HER once when he was young and lost his....well, you know, THAT part. He has resented me since my sweet little self showed up on the doorstep almost 2 years ago. He is a Malti-Poo. I'd put the emphasis on the poo part. Every now and then I try to drop kick him over the rainbow bridge, but he must have 9 lives or something. He was a bit unkind to me when I was a baby, and I haven't forgotten it yet. The only time I tolerate him in my space is when it's that special girly time, and then I'm just not picky. Any male will do as long as he's breathing.

I do apologize for not introducing myself properly all around. It's all HER fault. She wouldn't know how to do a proper butt sniffy if her life depended on it. Anyways, thanks for letting me be your friend. I've met so many interesting dogs here and really enjoy leaving notes for everyone.

Butt sniffies all around,
Bonnie, the wee Scottie

Oh Bonnie!!! What a wonderful introduction....I do sorta like the name Scrappy...that could be Scruffy's and my middle names too...Stanley's middle name is NONREACTIVE...unless we're at the park and Mumsie has ALL THREE of us attached to her little wrists and I see a dog I hate (which is most of them) and then Stanley shall we say REACTS...

It drives Mumsie nutso cuz he almost pulls her off her feet...

Anyway...so Bonnie...where are ya sleepin' now?

I'm thinkin' that you need to try another tactic...

OWNER GUILT.

Try this paragraph with your peeps...

"Bonnie's soft brown eyes fill with tears...he head drops...her tail tucks...yes, the owners are leavin' for another errand...leaving her HOME ALONE...AGAIN...

Perhaps if she got to sleep in the big bed with Mommy and Daddy again....she wouldn't feel so sad...

And a cookie could help too...

Bonnie reaches for a kleenex to dab at her eyes...sob sob sob...

She swears it was just a one time full bladder incident...probably caused when one of the hoomans accidently rolled over on her and pushed on it...

*********************************

Ok, Bonnie...try it...just try it...

they just mite let ya back in the bed....

Well, now that we've formally met, we can see where your personalities comin' from! A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I'm finally beginning to figure that out.

So. On the QT. I say this cuz I don't think my gramma'll ever read it here. I had a bit of a ... ummm...shall we say... potty accident this summer. At night. On the, yep. Bed. Kept it a big secret. Just did a middle of the night cleanup. Told no one. It just happens. Ya know? Maybe your owner'll read this and say, "Oh, poor Bonnie. How could I ever have been upset with you? " Just maybe.

Trying my best,
Fergi (it's our secret, OK? If Gramma finds out... I may lose some status with her. And she DOES read these bloggies from time to time. I think.)

MAX said...

Hey there Bonnie
Thanks for the nice introduction. Butt sniffing in this bloggie world is not as easy as it sounds...don't worry, we all have them! We are continuing to make mistakes too...Oh well. It's nice to meet you properly.
Lots of licks

Hey Miss Bonnie,

Butt sniffs to you too,

PS- Piper wishes he lived closer - he'd be happy to help you out during that "girly" time.

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos Bonnie! Thanks for the proper but sniffing! Maybe we all need to to this to update our online friends since it is hard to but sniff online. I see you are inundated with others too who invade your space. I am sorry. Maybe a nice border collie would do the trick, he could round them up and herd them away, but then you are stuck with a neurotic BC with nothing to herd. I guess I am stuck too....

RILEY AND STAR said...

Hi Bonnie,

You are a pro at butt sniffing! At least you are dignified about it. Riley could take some lessons from you.

Luv,
Star.

Mango said...

Thanks for clearing everything up. I must say that the ancient one should be respected a bit (feeling that I might be the ancient one soon).

Please do not listen to ANYTHING that Lacie says. She is an insane cracker dog beast.

Slobbers,
Mango

Maggie and Mitch said...

What a great introduction, Bonnie!
You sure don't look like a thunder butt to us! We think you're very cute!
Puffy is getting up there in years! I understand the grouchy part. I get that way sometimes too if a certain someone, who will remain nameless, interrupts my sleep once too often!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

BRUTUS said...

Well, nice to meet ya all over again! We did notice the change in authorship a while back. We like hearing from you directly now, and it's great to see you so often! And the Poo guy - he sounds a lot like our old Duncan, who just missed his 17th birthday. He was always grumpy too, but I just LOVED to tease him about it!

Snorts-
Brutus the Frenchie
