Hitch in My Glitch

Cyndi:  You look sad, Buddy.  What's wrong?

Buddy:  I don't know.  I guess I'm feeling a bit nostalgic.

Cyndi:  For anything in particular?

Buddy:  Yes, for the days when I was young and handsome, Miss Mother and Mr. Harwood were still with us, I was the star of this blog, and Jan took us dogs in the car because I was an excellent back seat driver.  Now I'm old and ugly, white-furred and boring.

Cyndi:  You aren't ugly and boring, Buddy.  I remember you in your prime.  Handsome, energetic, nose to the ground dragging Jan down the street.

Buddy:  Now I get a crick in my neck if I try to follow a trail and a glitch in my hitch when I try to keep the pace.

Cyndi:  Oh, I think I know the problem.  You're feeling left out and overlooked because of Marcus.  

Buddy:  Yes, he pushes his way into everything.  He's always getting his picture taken and finagling his way into the center of posts.  He shoves everyone out of his way to be first through the door, shrieks at the top of his lungs to let the entire neighborhood know he's going on a walk.  He ... he's obnoxious!

Cyndi: You're jealous, but you shouldn't be.  You were the king of obnoxious.  You moved in here, took over Merci's toys, ate her food, stepped on her to be first out the door, bayed at the top of your lungs to tell the world you were on your way -   I could go on, but you get the idea.  You're the original. Marcus is a copy.

Buddy:  Thanks for the pep talk, Merci.  I feel much better.

Cyndi:  Where are you going?

Buddy:  To get Marcus's attention, even if I have to sit on him, so I can teach him everything I can remember about obnoxious. 

Cyndi:  Sit on him?  Must be a new teaching method.

We are joining the Pet Parade blog hop with hosts Rascal and RoccoBionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou and Love is being owned by a husky.


  1. Oh, sounds like a group sit-in!

  2. Buddy, we feel you. Everyone has someone that just sets every nerve on edge. And as for cricks...yup, we got 'em. Hugs and love to you all :-)

  3. Growing old is not for sissies. It takes courage.

  4. Consider yourself a mentor, Buddy. You are still the handsome guy you always were. Growing older should be embraced. It takes a long time! ♥

  5. Cyndi, you should be a therapist like Lucy in Peanuts :)

  6. Wisdom comes with age, Buddy. You're now the most experienced, right ? We're very interested in hearing of the results of your teaching methods. Purrs

  7. Oh, Buddy, it is clear that you were the guru for Marcus and will never be surpassed in your antics. An old dog CAN learn new tricks, Buddy. Just watch Marcus and then do it better.

  8. Oh Buddy you could come and stay wif us anytime, we think you are sooooo handsome. stella rose

  9. You are extremely handsome friend

    Buddy boy, it can be a downer when we see the young ones doing the stuff we used to do and now the creaks and crackles in the joints and jiggles stop us from doing 'em.... but you got the right attitude, what you can't do, teach!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  11. If at first you don't succeed, sit on him. I will have to remember that!

  12. You are still young and handsome!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    Pee Ess - Please send POTP to my fiance' Ruby. She is at ER. No other information available.

  13. Buddy, we think you're still handsome and fun. And the thing is, with age comes wisdom, so you have lots to teach us all. Big hugs!

  14. Oh Buddy, you are still so very handsome and exciting! You have nothing to be jealous of! Marcus should be the jealous one ;)
    Thank you so much for your kind words of love and support on Milton's memorial post today. We appreciate it more than you know.

  15. Buddy, we think you are a furry handsome woofie. AND we're not fond of woofies generally. As for Marcus, he's obviously learning from the best.

  16. Buddy, Your grizzled face is a sign of wisdom...only those of vintage are allowed to wear this...I can attest to the same grizzled look...and at 14, I too have some glitches. Marcus might make a good pillow if he sits still long enough, BOL!


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
