10 Random Things about Me

My buddy Neko gave me this Honest Scrap Award that's been circulating the blogs. An opportunity to talk all about ME??? I couldn't resist it.

1.) I don't really know how to play with other doggies. I'll wag my tail, give 'em a sniff, but that's about it. I don't know how to play bitey-face or zoomies. I just want to play with people.

2.) I like to sleep in late. Sometimes I go to bed at 11:00 and don't wake up and walk into the living room until 10:45 the next morning.

3.) Everyone at the bank knows me by name. That's because I always get cookies when we go in there. Mommy just drops my leash and I run over to my friend Denise (or one of her colleagues) who always stop what they're doing to give me a cookie.

4.) I'm very vocal. I talk in my sleep. And when I get frustrated or over-excited, I throw my head back and howl.

5.) I love little white dogs. My girlfriend was Betty, but she just wasn't that in to me.
My next true love was a West Highland Terrier named Ruby - I was Ashton Kutcher to her Demi Moore. Here's a photo of me and Ruby.
Then there was Sophie, a sassy Maltese. Even now, if I see a little white doggie on my walk, I get all wig-wagging excited.

6.) While I love to run into the ocean, I'm not really crazy about swimming when my feet can touch the bottom.

7.) Almost every time I go out into the snow, I find a ball. Under a car (Mommy says I think they are big chickens laying balls instead of eggs) or buried in the snow. Literally dozens. 

8.) I may pretend not to at first, but once I have clothes on, I'll keep them on for hours and hours. I wore my Halloween costumes for over six hours without a fuss - even the silly bee hat!

9.) I am nuts about kids. Whenever I hear the 2-year old little boy down the hall or our neighbors' two granddaughters, I run to the door and whimper and cry until Mommy lets me out in the hall to play with them. I have to stop and watch the kids whenever we go past the playground.

10.) I'm not a kissy dog. Very rarely will I bestow a kiss. But I do curl my upper lips back and smile when I greet my favorite people and wiggle all over. Mommy's never been able to capture it on film but it's pretty funny. Asta's and Eric's mommies have seen me do this and can vouch for me!

Okay, I need seven friends to now complete this list...Eric, Lacie, Amore, and the beagle gang - Alfie, Rosie (sigh!), Snoop and Gabbi!

Have fun times 10!

Petey..that was very interesting. I am more of a People Dog myself. Got along fine with the Barkalot Hoomans, not so well with Jakey and JH. Don't think there is anything wrong with that, do you?


NAK and The Residents of The Khottage said...

Nice skhrap Petey!

I'm a good sleeper too!

I am khyssy BUT I'm not hugglysnuggly!


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Congrats on the Award, Petey.
I enjoy reading it.
Those hooman kiddos are adorable, no wonder you are nuts about them.
Hey I'm another little white doggy visiting your blog and wig wagging to you!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petey!
Congratulations on your award!
Thanks for sharing all those honest things about you.
I love your pictures with your costumes!
I am not a kisser either!
Kisses and hugs

Sally said...

Hey Petey - I love your costumes - is that green eye makeup? I hope it was tested on a human before you tried it on.

I am more a people dog too - they always have treats for me. I liked your blog and I also agree there is no need to wake up too early -we need our beauty sleep.

Lots of licks (I am a kissy dog)

PS I did not receive a Valentine this year ! But thats ok as my D bought me a somewhat heart shaped chew.

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Awww Petey, that's a great honest list! We've already played this but we might do it again, it was fun! We'll let you know....thanks for thinking of us :o)
Slobbers xx
Pee-ess....we have yet to make it to Pluscarden for a walk...but it is on the cards, yippee! Mum just needs to get Dad to take a day off and come with us....she doesn't trust us off leash in a place we don't know, tsk...surely she knows we'll be back at teatime?

Stanley said...


I LOVE getting more scoop on you and your crazy little world! Looks to me like the kiddos love you as much as you love them.

That photo of you laughing in the post before this one was HILAIREous! I'd like to see a smiley photo of you if anyone is ever quick enough to catch it on film.

You are SO RIGHT about Mango! His Mango Minster brought so many pups together! And, it was a MONSTROUS amount of work.

I understand you and your mama are to be congratulated for helping with photography and reporting. Way to GO, man!

Goober love & smooches,

Toffee said...

Very interesting...indeed. = )

Thanks for organizing the Paris trip! I am sooo excited to use my Chewnel!

I wanted to thank you so much for stopping by our blog and leaving encouraging words for Benson, our Golden Retriever. We are so glad to have made a new friend like you out of this, and really appreicate your kind thoughts and prayers.

WE have posted an update on the blog about Benson this morning.

Thanks again and we really like your blog by the way! Those were fun facts you wrote about yourself!

Daisy said...

It was fun to learn more things about you, Petey! I hope one day we can see your little smile, because it sounds very, very cute!

Eric said...

Petey, Congrats and all on your award and passing on. I'll reveal all soon. We have a lot in comom my friends as we know. Apart from the (yawn) ball fixation.

Now the white ladies..I'm thinking that lacie is not all white though Bianca of course is VERY. Maybe destiny will call a 4th time for you Petey.

Mom says she is vouching for your super smashing smilies and the glint from your pearly whites. She's gone all cooo over your photo with the kids, then the one of you as a bee..Ok Ok she's gone coo over all your photos Petey. Lucky you don't have a big head only a sleepy one. I expect you are laughing that head off right now eh?

I'm envious you can go to the bank. I take it Denise is your personal banker? Ask her for a statement next time can you? Sales gone through the roof after the Horrids expose.

What you wearing to Paris Petey? Something Cat Our Ier? Don't know wabout you but i'm looking forward to a bit of pas de deux, he, heeee!! See you Friday.

Wiry wags, Eric xx

Stanislaw said...

I kiss EVERYTHING! The floor, the sofa, the carpet, human legs... anything I can get my tongue one. Mom says it's what makes me so, um, 'SPECIAL.'

You should try giving kisses so you can be special too!

Molly the Airedale said...

Our mom is wishing that we'd sleep later in the morning like you do, Petey!
We feel we know you so much better now!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

You certainly like your beauty sleep!

Joe Stains said...

I can't believe you left that crazy suit on for SIX hours, I would never even let that thing on me. I don't really play with other dogs either.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

So Petey's not a kissy dog...hmm...that sounds like a challenge to this Lakeland...am packing for the trip...gotta go run to the drycleaner...so many clothes...so few suitcases...

Talk to ya soonest...

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...
