A Summer Meme

Mom tagged me for a meme (what’s a meme? I don’t know, but I’ll answer the questions)

1.) What first tells you that summer is here?
When Mom starts wearing shorts, and has more time to take me on walks.  Also, I pant more.

2.) Name five of your favorite distinctively summer habits or customs.
*Going on long walks around a lake
*Going up to the Big Lake Far Away and Staying in a Room.
*Going to something called a “Dog Park”
*Riding in a Car with my Nose out the Window
*Chasing Rabbits

3.) What is your favorite smell of summer?
Favorite smell??? I like all smells.  I like the smell of holes and wet leaves after rain, and toads on the road, and trees.  I like the smell of the lake, and all the people we met, and the puppies, especially labs!  they are so cute!

4.) What is your favorite taste of summer?
Rabbit!!!
runner up:  ice cubes

5.) Favorite summer memory?
I live in the moment, so I’m not sure what a memory is.  But I like when we starting going to that place called a “Dog Park” together, when I was little, and met all kinds of dog friends and people friends every morning.  It was so fun!  We used to go every morning.

6.) Extreme heat or extreme cold? Which would you choose and why?
I like cold better, because of rolling around in the snow, but I know mom likes summer, and I like summer because mom and dad have more time.

7.) What books do you plan to read for the season?
I am not going to read any books, and I wish Mom wouldn’t either.  Except books about dogs.

8.) How does the summer affect your faith? Is it a hindrance?
Summer is good because my Mom has more time and we do more things together.  I think it is always good to do more things with my people.

Another good book, mmm good

yiddish-for-dogs.jpgDiane and I are studying this very excellent book right now, Yiddish for Dogs.  My favorite word so far is:  NOSH, which means eat, but not gulping down my food all at once like I usually do (because I’m starving to death, no kidding), but snacking during the day.  So I love to NOSH on whatever I find, and on the little snacks Diane gives me when we play those games (the ones where I sit, shake, lie down, heel).  The other day I NOSHED on all the frosting around some Christmas cookies.  Then Diane threw them all away.  Why???? I just don’t understand humans.  They are MISSHUGGEH.

 I am not a Jewish dog, but I do believe in inclusivity and learning to speak others’ languages.  What about you?  That’s why I’m learning a little Yiddish.  I hope you all will learn a little Husky — it’s also a great language with lots of interesting howls, yips and whines.

I heard Diane talking and I think we are also going to learn a little WordPress together.  I’m sure if she will let me, I can help her a LOT.

I’m not just a SHAYNA MAIDEL, you know.

My Favorite book

This books has many prayers for dogs in it.  I highly recommend it for all dogs and people.  It doesn’t matter if you are a golden retriever, a husky, a labrador, a german shepherd, or anything else (they say “mutt”, but I say, what is a “mutt”?)

 Cats:  get your own book!
