The Middle Name Meme

Grendel (who is the most awesomely great dog) tagged my Mom for this “Meme” about middle names.  I don’t know what a “meme” is, and I don’t really have a middle name, but Mom said I am “the Wonder dog” and the middle word in that is Wonder, so we will use the word Wonder.

 W – Writhe.  I writhe in the snow, and on the ice, too.  Sometimes we’ll be walking along and suddenly — wham — I am on the ice, on my side, being dragged along.  I like to writhe.   The cold feels good on my fur.

O – Only.  I am an only dog.  I like other dogs, don’t get me wrong.  But I also like being Special.  I would like other dogs to come and visit me, but maybe not live here.

N – Naps.  I do like to take naps.  Doesn’t everyone?  I like to take naps on my bed, under the table, on the living room floor, on the love-seat.

D – Daring.  I am a daring and devilish dog, especially when I try to Escape.  I also like to make up Games. Also D is for Dog, which is God spelled backwards.  I this this is important, but I don’t know why.

E – Energetic.  Naps are great, but so are playing with dogs, running down the street and in all of the neighbors back yards, chasing rabbits and squirrels and oh – so many things!  I can be very energetic!

R – Running.  I am a good runner.  Mom says I should pull a wagon or something.  That would be all right with me.

 I would like to tag Cody Bear, and Molly, and Clumber (my new and incredibly smart friend) and some cats, too, if I can find some… 

My mom did this….


You Are: 70% Dog, 30% Cat


You and dogs definitely have a lot in common.You’re both goofy, happy, and content with the small things in life.However, you’re definitely not as needy as the average dog. You need your down time occasionally.

I was a little worried, because before I came along, Mom considered herself to be a cat person.  But I see that I have almost completely converted her.  I guess I need a little more time before the work is totally done!  How long do you think it will take?

1. I like to roll around in the snow.  My guardians sometimes call it “writhing”, which doesn’t sound very nice, does it?  I like the way the cold snow and ice feels on my fur.

2. Most of the time, I don’t understand why Mom and Dad get so bummed when I get sick.  As soon as I’m done, I feel better.

3. I scratch myself a lot.  I think just for something to do.

4. I think I am really pretty, and am pretty sure that everybody likes me.

5. I really like it when I get to go on vacation with Mom and Dad.  But, I like it when I get to stay and play with other dogs, too.  Don’t tell them.  I want them to feel guilty.

6.  I like to chew things.  Mostly, I like my toys, like my new cactus squeaky toy from Wherever Diane Went, but I also have been known to chew:  pens, money, cardboard, books (really, only one or two) and a sandal — once.  Really, I’m just curious.  What’s a dog to do?

I tag Zorra’s Amie, Wyrdbyrd‘s Isabel, MollyHotCup‘s MochaJavaPuppy and humans… if there are any humans who haven’t done this, please feel free!
