How dogs can be GREEN .....

I over heard that it was Earth Day the other day. Then yesterday I heard them talking on the TV about saving the environment and being green. Even though my Mom says she is old enough to remember another time when people were frantic about the environment and she is not worried too much about it right now, I have decided us dogs are doing our part. I have been thinking about it and here are ten things us dogs naturally do that help.

1. We don't use toilet paper, not even one square.
2. We add valuable nutients back into the grass.
3. We drink out of our water bowl without washing it over and over again.
4. We don't wear clothes that have to be washed over and over and over.
5. We don't waste water taking a lot of baths ..... ghesh ... I hate baths.
6. We help clean up kitchen spills, so people don't have to use paper towels or nasty chemicals.
7. We don't shop and bring home things in plastic bags.
8. We don't eat chocolate that is from beans picked in the wrong places.
9. We eat kleenex instead of throwing them in the landfill.
10. We don't turn on lights to bark.

Can you think of some more things?

P.S. I am definately losing in the Awesome Blog Award Contest. The other dogs must have snappier blogs than me. But, it's OK because Hershey's baby will be here soon and pretty soon I will be an UNCLE. Stay tuned .... I will tell you all about it as soon as it happens.

You're a winner in my book, Copper! About the green thing - some dogs recycle poop.

haha..Zach's right? Some dogs recycle their own POOP.
I'm trying to activate my account on DWB to vote for you!! Hang in there Copper!!
PS : Mom went to see her friend's baby too and she said the baby boy was so cute (I said Mom, take a good look at me..I'm cute too alrght?) and had little dimples!!

You came up with some awesome points about saving our environment Copper! We're sure doing our part, huh?!

Love ya lots,

Great ideas, Copper! I never thought about how enviromentally-conscious we doggies are! We should get more treats, huh?!

Dear Copper,

Your bloggy is always so educational. I really like how you said we eat kleenex instead of throwing them in the landfill.

Well, my mom is back from playing hike-dog-seek with me. She was hiding for 7 days! Geesh! But, after a while I gave up and starting getting yummy salmon from my grandparents, so I forgot about my mom for a while there.

My mom is gonna help me post some of her pics from her trip. There were lots of things that she saw that she said your mom would like. Oh, she got an Earth Day pin while on vacation.

It is better to be an UNCLE rather than win the Awesome Blog Award. But, your bloggy is awesome to me.

Copper! You are so right! Us doggies are so green that it is ridiculous...those humans can learn a thing or 10 from us!

I think your blog is da bomb.

Our babies don't wear diapers; we don't care if the lights are on and we don't really need heat or air conditioning. We don't drive cars. I think you are on to something Copper!

I love your blog and read it almost every day (even if I don't always comment). I even signed up to the Bone Zone to vote for you, but I haven't gotten my official o.k. yet, so I can't post anything yet, but you should have more votes soon.

P.S. I know you know this, but it's still a real honor to be nominated--did you know that there are over 400 blogs on DWB now?

Toilet paper is for eating.

All the suggestions from you and other bloggers/commenters about how doggies are green are so right! My personal favourite one was that some dogs recycle their own poop! Not me personally, no, never me!

Earth Day Everyday! Way to be Eco Friendly Copper.

We're losing in the contest too. Simba has a pretty big fan base! You have a great blog *and* you get to be an uncle soon! That's too cool!

Copper, you are right about the green thing. We are much better at it than humans. Pippin is right, with over 400 blogs just getting nominated is a feat! There were a lot fewer blogs when we got nominated and we won with only 7 votes ... you already have 8! But becoming an uncle will be even better. Not at first but it will get to be lots of fun.
