Merci is Tagged

Chance's woofie brother Shadow tagged Merci for a meme. Merci, mind you, because she's sooooo cute! "Sooooo cute" are Shadow's words.

We think it's about time some woofie noticed how cute she is, especially after that photo we've been posting for Deetz's Scary Eye Contest. (The contest ends tomorrow, so woofies and kitties, go vote.) Merci looks like an evil eyed, snarling, wild dog in the photo. But she actually has the heart of a pussy cat.

And now that we've embarrassed Merci by reminding everyone she's sooooo cute, we're going to turn this over to her to do her meme.

The rules of the game get posted at the beginning. Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player than tags 4 or 5 people and post their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you have posted your answer.

1. What was I doing 10 years ago?

Jan says I'm about 5 or 6 years old, so I wasn't born yet.

2. Five Things on my to-do list today.

Eat. Walk Jan. Nap. Wrestle with Samaritan. Roll over for treats.

3. Three snacks I enjoy.

Lettuce, the water veggies were cooked in, and a dab of peanut butter on a chew bone.

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire.

Buy a great big house! So there would be lots of room to stretch out on the floor without getting stepped on. With a huge fenced yard so I could race around with Buddy and Samaritan and whatever animals Jan found/fostered that need a home. Buy Jan a car with enough room for Buddy, Samaritan and me to sit comfortably in the back seat together. Oh, and I'd make sure there is a driveway to park it in so she wouldn't have to drive over the curb anymore and park on the lawn.

5. Three of my bad habits.

I don't have any bad habits.

What do you mean, I do too, Buddy? Oh, okay.

When we walk Jan and I see a squirrel - and we see a lot of squirrels on our walks - I take off after it. This yanks her shoulder and she hollers.

When Jan tells us woofies sit, down or whatever, I don't do it because I know I am a good girl, so she isn't talking to me, just the guys. But she gets exasperated and yells, "You too, Merci!" So I guess Jan considers this is a bad habit.

I have excellent hearing, so I let Jan know every little thing that happens in the neighborhood. Even those she can't see for looking. She says this drives her crazy. Oh, well, if I become a billionaire, she'll have a larger car to take her wherever crazy is.

6. Five places I have lived.

I don't remember where I lived before coming here. I do remember spending 5 days in the shelter and any time I run into the shelter manager/animal control officer, I still growl at him. I've lived here ever since. Five years this July.

7. Five jobs I have had.

Jan walker. Treat taste tester. Kitten rescuer. Disciplinarian for Buddy when he was a woofie baby. Cat and dog toy pick up and return to den overseer.

Thank you for tagging me, Shadow. (I think you're cute too, even if Chance wants you to have your own yard so he doesn't have to share with you.) I'm supposed to tag 4 or 5, but we can't remember any blogs we haven't seen this on, so we're just going to throw it open. If you haven't and would like to do this meme so we can learn more about you, consider yourself tagged.

(s) Merci

PS - If you missed the premier of the CCSI III production "The Missing Mummy Caper," drop by Sassy's to view Part I and Part II. Our Cameron was Uncle Bill and he is quite handsome in his costume.


  1. Well Merci, you are a very cute woofie! You'd probably get along great with my woofie torturers- I mean, siblings.

    And I understand what you mean when Jan's rules don't apply to you! I mean, if you're good then you don't have to listen to everything, right? :)

  2. I liked this photo of you, Merci, better than the scary eye one. I did go and vote for you and I hope you win that contest. I liked your meme and it help me to get to know you better. You are such a cutie doggie and you have many responsibilities at your place, probably being in charge of walking Jan. When you chase a squirrel I think Jan needs to step it up a little, I mean a lot, and keep up with you.

  3. Merci, kitten rescue is a very rewarding job. I am impressed.

  4. Merci, if you have a heart like one of the pussy cats that live in my house, then I'm not sure I'd enjoy meeting you very much... Our pussy cats try to kill me every day! They can be scary...

    Great answers to great questions! I enjoyed reading this post!


  5. We can tell you are a good Woofie, because one of your jobs is "kitten rescuer." So we will try not to be scared by your Woofie eyes, and just look at the cute picture!

  6. That's a great picture of you, Merci. I really enjoyed reading your meme and learning more about you. Kitten rescuing and Jan walking are very important jobs.

  7. Cameron was just soooo good in his role! Now Merci looks so much cuter in this picture thatn the scary eyes one. I was scared!!!!

  8. Cameron did a great job as Uncle Bill.

    It was nice learning more about you Merci.

  11. Hmmm, is something going on between Shadow and Merci that we should know about!??!

  12. Gosh I need to go and read about the missing mummy caper. Merci you are adorable!!! I wouldn't be embarrassed at all. I would take you to my bowl for dinner if I could you are so cute.

  13. Merci you are very pretty! I hope I as pretty lady dog when I grow up and not a fluff muffin! Thank to you all for coming to my coronation! Slobber kisses!

  14. I love that picture of Merci! Sigh. "Sooooo cute" sums it up for me, too!
    Hey! You asked what a "play bow" is - check it out, here: I'm SURE you've seen them before - but call them something else! I LOVE to play bow!
    Play bows!

  15. Your meme answers were very interesting, Merci! I let my sister Coco the Wiener Dog read them, and she says she doesn't think you have any bad habits. She says letting the Beans know about everything that's going on outside is a service, not a bad habit.
    Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

  16. great meme - you don't have any bad habits :-)
