Memorial Day and Me ....

(I'm a sailor Doxie. My Dad was in the Navy.)

I hope all my American dogfriends are having a nice Memorial Day remembering the men and women who have served our country.

I've been tagged by Lorenza to tell you 8 facts or habits about myself.
1. I love to go out on my back deck. I have to ask to go out there and once I am out there, I have to ask to come back in the house. I can't get down into the yard from the deck. If I hear somebody open that door, I yelp this funny yelp that means "Hey, wait for me!" and RUN to the back door. From the deck I can see the neighbor dogs.
2. I have a bald patch on my chest right where my chest is the deepest. I don't know why it's there.
3. I like to pile my toys in the dining room in front of the doorway to the kitchen. Mom moves them sometimes, but I move them right back.

4. I hide under dining room table when it looks like Mom or Dad might lock me in the kitchen. Dad calls this my "crystal palace." I can see you an you can see me but it is hard to get me out because there are so many table and chair legs. I hate being locked in the kitchen.

5. I get to lick your ice cream bowl when you're finished with it. It's a rule. It is the only people food I get. If there is family here, I get their bowls too. And, can count.
6. When Mom or Dad come home from somewhere, I have to go outside to go poddy. It doesn't matter if they have been gone only 20 minutes and just went out 30 minutes ago.
7. I never lift my leg to pee.
8. I don't dig.

Here are the rules:
1- Each person tagged starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2- The person tagged blogs about each of these facts and posts the rules.
3- At the end of the blog entry, list eight people to get tagged.
4- Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged, and to read your blog.

I tag Hershey, Ivy, Luckie, Pippen, Hana, Isabella, Meeshka and Reina.

Hey Copper,
Are you biting a dachie stuffy toy??? :) Wanna share?
I just shared 8 facts about myself yesterday.
I have this farnie habit where I'll go pee/poop only when Mom is not with me. I don't want her to see her doing my private stuff. Many times Mom sneaked in to peek at me and I was caught in mid-pee or was darn distracting I tell ya.

Hi Copper!
Have a nice Memorial Day!
I like to hide under the sofa when i know i did something wrong and want to escape being scolded by my mummy & daddy!

I'd like to see a video of your Mom trying to get you out from under the table ... sounds like it would be hilarious!

Oh - right now it's about 70 degrees or so outside ... we're having a really warm May.

Hi Copper! My mom has been brushing me more and more lately... something about my undercoat and the warmer weather now that summer is around the corner. I HATE being brushed!! Yesterday my mom actually trimmed the long parts of my fur so brushing should be easier. She's not done yet, but she says right now I look like a log. That means I have no waist right now because my fur is too even. My fur is still long and fluffy though!
