lots of stuff....

In my excitement about my new BFF Lola, I think I might have said some things yesterday that I need to clear up. I didn't mean to imply that I will only have one friend now. I was so worried about this last night that I had a long talk with Massah, and she assured me that I can have lots of BFFs, but I decided that Lola is my first BFF and holds a special place in my heart because she actually asked me to be her BFF and no one had ever asked me that before! Oh my gosh I love you, my BFF Lola!!! So I love everyone else too, but I think I might love Lola a little tiny bit more because she's my premier BFF, but Luckie and Lorenza and Ruby and Toby and Peanut and Tucker and oh my gosh I can't name everyone, but you are all my BFFs too! And I also have some bad news. In our heart-to-heart last night, I told Massah that I didn't want her to cut any of my hairs. She said, "okay, but I will try to find something to keep them out of your eyes", so I agreed. If I have known what kind of utter embarrassment she was planning under that huge forehead of hers, I wouldn't have acquiesced so quickly. Look what she pulled out last night.

It is a giraffe hat. And I saw that tag - it was made for a CAT!!!!! She took lots more photos, but I am not allowing to be uploaded to this blog. And I don't want to think about that horror any more. So I'm going to do the meme from Penny.

1. Your age? 1 year
2. Your age when came to live with your people? Somewhere around 6 months

12. Do your people cut your toenails? Yes they do, but not Massah because she is scared; she takes me to Petco
13. Any formal education? Fig taught me all kinds of things, like how to bark at things in the yard!

Hi Taddy...
Thanks for clearing up the whole BFF thing. I feel so much better because I really do want you to be my BFF too...ok? I liked your list of favorite nickname of course is 'Little naked chinese man'. It's a lot to say, but WAY worth it!

Lots of Licks, Ruby (another one of your BFFs!)

G'day Tad,

I enjoyed your list. I think you look great in board shorts even though you don't swim. The most expensive thing I ever chewed up was one of my mum's flash drives. I think massah should solve your hair problem by giving you a Faux Hawk like Sanjaya!

xxx Asta down under

PS: Can I be a BFF too?

Toby said...

WHAT THE HECK!?!?!?! OMD. I was totally thinking that Massah was gonna give you something like a girly pony tail or a girly hair clip....but WHAT??? A giraffe hat?? Is it Halloween already??

And I thought my Mom was strange....


Peanut said...

I think it's okay to have one BFF that you like just a little more then the others. I can't beleive Massah put a cat hat on you. That is so bad.

coco said...

Hey Big Guy, I sure hope I'm still one of your BFFs even though my auntie told you about my indignation about being sniffed in my special place. And then to think you would allow that picture to be posted on the internet! It was mortifying!!! I felt like the Paris Hilton of DogswithBlogs!

But Mommy says I must try to be mature about it, I am trying to calm down. After all, you will always be my first love, even though you are *too totally frisky* for moi.

You are so scandalous.

Tofu Burger said...

So I can be your BFF too? Coolio!!

Taddy-wack, tell me how you really feel about CUZ...hmmmm you weren't that clear lol

love ya lots!!!


massah-in-law said...

You forgot T-Pole in your list of nicknames!

And I think the giraffe hat is very appropriate, seeing that your neck is so extremely long and flexible.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Little Naked Chinese Man. (Ha! Sorry!)
Like Ruby, I want to thank you for clearing up about your BFF. I was so sad about it, but now I feel a lot better!
You weigh very few pounds. Now I understand why my mom calls me Gorda!
You eat ants?? Like people here in Mexico?? (well, some people, not all)
I need to think about your answer on Cuz... Do I have to understad how much you like it??
Have a nice day

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Oh Tad... I can not believe that Massah put that hat on you.. especially out of all of the other cute ones you posed in a while back. I love the question/answers! I am going to do it this weekend!

wally said...

Tad--I want to be your friend so I can learn to be as manly as you. But I DON'T want to wear a giraffe hat. PLEASE.


wally said...

P.S. My ma ape calls be Wallybelly (cuz I used to have a pooch). It's mean, but then I call her Chub. YOu can call me Wallybally if you want because you are my friend with the best hair EVER.

Lady Kaos said...

She put a cat thing on your head? I thought everybody already proved you are a dog!!! She's trying to mess with your head! Maybe you should agree to the haircut, but ask her to take you to someone who knows what they're doing.

Luckie the Dachie said...

Hey Tad,
Phew, like the rest, I was a bit sad that you didn't want to be my BFF. I thought between us, I wouldn't need to even ask! hehe..Anyhoo, it's all over and we'll all be great BFFs! What the heck is that funny looking hat?? Massah sure has wierd fashion tastes...what else does she have hidden in her cupboards?

Opy - the Original GruffPuppy said...

Hey Tadpole,

You have been nominated for "Awesome Blog Award" over at the Bone Zone, head on over there and cast your vote :-)


Reina the Doxie said...

Hi Tadpole,
That is a very nice giraffe on you :p

Stanley said...


You have such a rich and interesting life. With Massah, you don't need a life coach - she seems very wise.

I'm with Ruby. Thanks for clearing things up about your BFF status. I think there's plenty of you to go around.

One of your BAFF (Best Aire Friends Forever), your goob,

Tasha & Eva said...

Hi Tad! The hat must go! We think Massah should do a little ponytail on top of your head so you could be like Gene Simmons from Kiss! Then you could try your paw at breathing fire! We liked your list. We are going to do one. too. Please tell Massah to trash the cat hat! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

ToFFee said...

Giraffe hat!!!! (don't let mum see that or she'll say.. howw cute and make me wear one too!)

Whew! I don't know what's in the air but I hope I don't catch it!

looks like a disease named "puppy love"!

The Airechicks said...

Hey Tad:

Don't wear that hat outside - someone will steal it from you...

Joe Stains said...

Tad, swimming STINKS don't ever do it ok? As for your hat, well, they say that 'if you don't have anything nice to say....' so I have no comment.

Scruffy said...


Your Massah is a riot. Love the giraffe thingy. Don't tell my Mummy about it. If not she may just do that to me too.
