Friday Dog Blogging

Genevieve's Corner

Hi Everyone, this is Genevieve! I haven’t written to you in awhile, because I’ve been busy. Busy doing what? Well, sniffing, pooping (in the house yesterday…my bad!), licking the floor, napping, eating, rubbing my face on the furniture, wondering why I can’t sleep on the bosses’ beds, sneaking up to sleep on the bosses’ beds, having a few baths (which takes away my fierce smell and leaves me smelling like sham’s poo! The humiliation!), thinking about my mommy, and taking walks.

It’s the walks I wanted to tell you about today. You see, I am a very lucky girl, and I am grateful for every day. I get a nice walk every day, and I often get two nice walks in a day. But lately, the bosses have been complaining about me, which sounds a lot like “blah blah blah blah, come ON Genevieve, keep UP Genevieve, blah blah blah blah”, which is accompanied by some tugging on the leash, which I will admit, I do not enjoy. I try to keep up, but you know what? There are a lot of things to smell on the ground! There is pee-mail to read, and information to process about raccoons and ‘possums and sometimes even deer, right there under my nose, and they want me to keep up and ignore that information. Medium Boss sometimes says, “Heel, Genevieve”, and I almost know what that means, but mostly I ignore her so I can sniff. She says she gets tired of walking with her arm twisted behind her.

You know where this is going, don’t you? Pretty soon I won’t be getting my walks, which I adore and need. And it will be blamed on me getting “old”. Hey, I’m 5! Wait, I’m 2! I was born! (J’s note: Not sure why Gen says these things. She’s 11.) Anyway, as proof that I am in NO WAY old, and that I have plenty of energy, and that I’m cute and adorable and a baby, I present to the jury this little video that Medium Boss made of me one day this week. Sorry about the shaky camera work, she says, and she hopes it doesn’t make you barf like a Pokemon movie. What?

  1. Oh Genevieve! Thank you for this post! You are one beautiful doggy! I wish I had a video of Little One watching your video! She was laughing, kicking, smiling and giggling away! In fact, she was kicking so much, she kicked her socks off!

    J, I love your laugh 🙂

  2. Gen! Who knew you moved so fast!!! Live life like a puppy sweetie! (well, except for the pooing in the house part)

    WOOF XOXO

  3. Hey Gen (that’s me in the avatar; sorry I can’t forward you a sample of my scent–whahh?!? Well, excuse me. Ombud says that’d be gross–humans, what can you do?)

    Lookin’ good on film there, girl!

    When I was a pup, me and the older dog, Vinnie, used to pull the humans in opposite directions. I’d be pulling forward and old Vin would stop to sniff, pretty much drawing and quartering the bipeds.

    Now that I’m getting older I’ve matured, I like to linger over the canine chronicles a bit more, sniffing the news, and Edie is pulling them on, so now, like you, I’m at the back end, too.

    Why don’t they get it? What’s with all the tugging on our necks? We know the rest of the day is going to be spent snoozing–you don’t see us rushing them through their newspapers, do you?

    Anyway, we leave for the foothills of the Sierras tomorrow. Woo woofin’ hoo! We’ll be romping in the woods and the tall grass soon!

  4. I sure love your Friday Dog Blogging. Thank you so much for the heads up! That’s the most I’ve smiled today.
    Gen has so much energy! And very impressive for an Eleven year old?
    I don’t think Abigail and Emily could keep up with her and they aren’t quite Ten years old yet.

    Hey sometimes they just gotta poop on the floor? Ab & Em will leave me a present from time to time, but it’s very rare. Can’t blame them if they have a tummy ache. But it seems to happen when it’s raining out and they were in too much of a hurry to get back inside. Then nature calls before I can get back at lunch time!

    You are so good at getting inside Gen’s mind and telling her story from her point of view! Best entertainment I’ve had tonight!

    Hugs to Gen!

  5. Bonjour Gen-vieve!
    I’ve never seen you run around so much, just in little spurts. I know you like to say you’re a baby and its good to see you feel like one too (even when you poop in the house and walk kinda slow for Medium Boss’ workout walk).

    Keep it up! And thank Medium boss for the cute video! I didn’t even get queezy watching it!
