Grocery Helpers

Need help taking in the groceries? There is a team of Golden Retrievers willing to chip in. They have super dog skills worth checking out.

Since Yalu was a prancing princess puppy, with the emphasis on the word princess, she did not bring in the groceries. There were more than enough people in her world to take care of that chore. Yalu’s job was to supervise and by supervise, I mean she would wag her tail and be cute–something she was very good at doing.

I watch this video and wonder if there might be a future Yalu story with her helping with the groceries. I will ponder that  and while I do, you kind reader, should help support a poor starving self published author by becoming a proud owner of Yalu And The Puppy Room and Yalu And The Stinky Stink.

For just $5.98, two wonderfully illustrated e-books can be delivered to you through the magic of the internet. Be brave, be bold and click those banners to the right so you too can become a part of Yalu’s world.

A Problem In Doggieland

A Problem In Doggieland

A Problem In Doggieland

There is a problem in doggieland and Mr. Wesley does not like it at all. Last week, grass seed and some chemicals got sprayed on the lawn. Due to overprotective parents who treat Mr. Wesley like a kitty, he was not allowed to go out on the grass until after it rained. It took two days for the rain to come. Now it will not stop raining and there is more rain scheduled in the forecast!

For some silly reason, Wesley’s unc does not play in the rain. That means no double ball action outside. This has made for a very bored puppy dog. Going outside is fun. A puppy dog like him loves going outside, particularly when Mr. Wesley and his unc play double ball.

Time out. What is is double ball and how is it played? That is easy. Get one puppy dog, one people person and two tennis balls. Bring the puppy dog, people person and tennis balls outside. The people person throws a tennis ball. The puppy dog chases the tennis ball and almost brings it back to the people person. The people person then throws the other tennis ball. While the puppy dog gives chase to this tennis ball, the people person get the other tennis ball and strands ready to throw. It is a fun game that results in a lot of pantng.

So what does a puppy dog do on rainy days when his only trips outside are potty trips? Well, there is tug of war with the big dog rope. That be can fun, but not as fun as double ball. There are dancing stuffed animals who sometimes go flying up in the air, but stuffed animals do know how to throw a tennis ball.

There has to be a way to entertain a bored puppy dog. I know, read him a story. Yeah, he can hear a story about another puppy dog and her adventures. Wow, seeing the world through another dog’s eyes. What could be a better to spend one’s time when there cannot be double ball action?

Find out by becoming a proud owner of Yalu And The Puppy Room and Yalu And The Stinky Stink. They’re both e-books, which means you can pretty much be anywhere in the world and be able to download them to your computer, smart phone, or tablet. See the world through the eyes of a little brown dog named Yalu. These adventures are guaranteed to make you go, “Awwww!” All you, kind reader, have to do is be bold, be daring and click those banners on the right.

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

Waiting for people is the most boring thing a puppy dog does. One can take a nap and dream of getting petties, going for walkies or car rides, but that is not the same as doing. Puppies live in the now! As in, let’s play, right now. Pet me right now. Later things can be done … well later.

What do people do that keep them away from their puppy dogs all day? Dog wonder about this all the time. One minute in people time equals seven minutes in puppy time. When there is a dog who has the patience of say, a puppy, waiting for people takes up a very large chunk of a dog’s day.

You know what every dog needs? Every dog needs a personal puppy entertainer. That would solve a good many puppy issues. Imagine how much better the world would be if puppy dogs had such a service.

The personal puppy entertainer could do lots and lots of fun stuff like play ball. Playing ball would get a puppy running and a tail wagging. There could be petties whenever a dog deemed it necessary and petties is an essential part of a dog’s day. Think of it as coffee. Pop quiz; Is there ever a bad time for petties? That was a trick question because there is never a bad time for petties. Meanwhile, back to our story.

Personal puppy entertainers could work in shifts. They could work in groups just so long as there is puppy interaction with people whenever the puppy wants. Personal puppy entertainers could be young people, old people, tall people, short people, even (Gasp!) cat people.

Think of all the problems that could be solved if there were personal puppy entertainers. There are too many to list. Let’s just say the world would be a much better place for puppies.

After getting out that great idea, I almost forgot to advertise one or both of my e-books–I tend to do that when I get passionate about an issue such as the personal puppy entertainer. Go ahead and take a look at one or both of my e-books at Amazon.com–you are allowed sneak peaks. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll wonder how a little brown dog named Yalu managed to communicate so many great ideas to me. Take that big step. Be brave, be bold and find out why Yalu is so wonderful.

Happy Birthday Yalu!

Happy Birthday Yalu

 

Happy birthday Yalu. On this date in the year 2000, a Golden Retriever gave birth to a litter of pups. Among those pups was a little dog who would eventually become known in my world as Yalu.

From the moment she and I met later that year in July, Yalu found a way to stand out from the other dogs running around the room acting like a bunch of puppies.

Being a very shy dog, she was determined enough to choose my sister and me by standing out from the crowd. She did that by going to a couch where my sister sat and trying to pull herself up. With a little help from Lori, she got there and gave us her big puppy dog eyes. Good thing Lori and I were suckers for Golden Retrievers.

The cute continued when we brought Yalu to her puppy palace. Her curiosity at wandering around the house and the outdoors fascinated her. There were so many places to sniff and there were two people specially assigned to play with her.

It took her a little time to adjust to her new surroundings. She refused to go potty when she first arrived. Guess there was one place and one place alone where she went to the bathroom where she used to live and it was nowhere to be seen in her new surroundings.

She spent the first night at her new puppy palace sleeping on my bed. Early in the morning there were three distressful barks to wake me up. By the time my eyes focused, she was busy taking a long potty break on my bed. Nice that she finally had the urge to go, the problem was that we needed to change where she went. After having her drinking a lot of water, Yalu and I spent a lot of time on the deck with me saying, “Go potty. Go potty.”

Yalu would look at me probably wondering what, “Go potty. Go potty” meant. Given time, she had to go and since she could not get back inside, the deck became her potty place. Whenever Yalu and I would be outside on the grass lounging, having good times, she would get up, run inside, go up a flight of stairs and appear on the deck to relieve herself. A few minutes later, she would be outside with me.

If the door to the deck was closed, Yalu would walk to the door. If no one came to her assistance, she would give a single polite bark. I liked that about her, she knew how to work the staff.

Yalu did pick a rather bad day to have a birthday. President Lincoln died on this date in 1865. HMS Titanic sank on this date in 1912. There was the great Mississippi flood of 1927. Taxes in America tend to be due today. Despite all the gloom and doom that occurred on this date, a very cute, brown, fury puppy dog came into the world. Knowing that April 15th becomes a pretty good day for me.

Since you’ve read this far, go click on the banners on the right and become the proud owners of Yalu And The Puppy Room and Yalu And The Stinky Stink. For just $2.99 each, you can become part of Yalu’s adventures and enter her wonderful world. Be brave, be bold and see the world through a puppy dog’s eyes.

The Dog Gym–Part II: The Part Where The Little Puppies Played

Little Puppies

Little Puppies

When we last left our heroine, Yalu was forced to visit a terrible, terrible, terrible place known as the dog gym where mean and vicious woof woofs gathered in wolfpacks to chase our innocent prancing princess puppy.

Saturday mornings were the days when Yalu was forced by otherwise nice people who she tried and loved with all of her heart. They wanted her to socialize with other dogs. Yalu had no other choice than ,,, than to travel to this very scary place.

There was a part of the dog gym where the little baby puppies gathered with their parents. This soon became the place where Yalu wanted to hang out. Little puppies could not hurt her. Why? They were smaller than her. These puppies yipped at each other and little more.

This was nice, at least it was to Yalu. She would sit near these little puppies while the mean and vicious woof woofs chased each other around the dog gym. The little puppies would paw her. That was better than being chased by the mean and vicious woof woofs. Some of the puppies nudged next to her wanting to cuddle.

The trick was to kill time. If that meant being around little puppies for a while, then so be it. That was when Yalu got one of her the brilliant ideas.

Potty. Good dogs go potty outside and since she was a good dog, it was time for a potty trip. While the mean and vicious woof woofs chased each other on the far side of the gym, Yalu made a break for the door. She gave Brian a look that said she had to go potty. It took Brian a while to understand that she needed to go potty. Being a guy, he needed training on basic dog hints.

Outside Yalu went with Brian on her leash to check all the sniff mail outside the dog gym. The potty trip had to take a very long while. If she went too fast that meant going back inside. Go potty and sniff. Go potty and sniff. Doing that got Yalu to the car and far far away from the dog gym.

Could Yalu’s life get any worse? So far, the stories about the dog gym sound like a pretty good story to add to her adventures. Adventures? Yes, Yalu has adventures that you, kind reader, can own and call your own.

Through the miracle of the internet you can become the proud owner of Yalu And The Puppy Room and Yalu And The Stinky Stink. These e-books currently live at Amazon.com and for $2,99 each, they can be magically transported to you to computer, tablet or smart phone.

Can life get any better than that? Highly doubtful. Read these marvelous stories to someone special. Better yet, have someone special read them to you. Be brave, be bold and join Yalu’s wonderful world.

The Dog Gym Part I–Mean And Vicious Woof Woofs Take Notice

The Dog Gym

The Dog Gym

This is the first part a story about a prancing princess puppy, pictured right, and something that should have never have happened at a dog gym. We begin our adventure with a prim and proper Golden Retriever living a dog’s life. She was a happy puppy with her very own her puppy palace filled with plenty of people who adored her.

One of her adoring subjects came up with the not so bright idea of taking her to a dog gym. What is a dog gym? It was the absolute worse place on earth to ever take a prancing princess puppy who had everything she ever needed in her puppy palace. Meanwhile, back to this story that is about to become a living nightmare.

What was a dog gym? It was a big building where dogs could get together and be dogs. There were three areas of the dog gym. The were really scary areas where dogs behaved ,,, well like dogs. Scary area one was inside the gym. Scary area two was outside the gym in a fenced area.  There was a third area within the gym where the little puppies gathered.

Oh what good idea it would be for Yalu to socialize. She was a shy dog who seemed to prefer people to other dogs. Let’s see if we could break her shyness. There was the the reason for bringing a perfectly happy prancing princess puppy who have everything she ever wanted at her puppy palace to do dog gym.

Yalu’s trips to the dog gym happened on Saturdays. The two people Yalu had selected above all others at her kennel brought her to this monstrosity–it has to be a terrible place because monstrosity sounds an awful lot like monsters and monsters had to be in charge of this dog gym.

Anyway, her people brought a prancing princess puppy to a dog gym. Dogs were already there, a wild pack of thirteen of mean and vicious woof woofs chased a poor helpless dog that ran for his life. This dog was brave because he had a big smile on his face and his tongue hung out while he ran.

Yalu was forced to join in this hunt and began being a polite little prancing princess puppy, she ran with the pack of mean and vicious woof woofs. In less than a minute, the woof woofs all stopped, turned, looked at the gentle prancing princess puppy in their midst. A dog vote was taken. Yalu was named it.

The dog gym

AHHHHHHHHHH! An entire pack of wild mean and vicious snarling barking mean, oh wait, I already mentioned mean, but they were really really mean, woof woofs gave chase.

As you cannot see from this blurry picture our heroine, wearing gold fur in the lower right, she runs for her life while from two mean and vicious woof woofs gave chase. Look at those two blurry dogs barely able to keep up.  The chocolate one in the middle clearly has a smile on his face. The other eleven mean and vicious woof woofs ended up eating Yalu dust. Run Yalu. Run!

Meanwhile, the pack of mean and vicious woof woofs pursued our heroine. She kept running. They kept chasing her. All around the gym Yalu ran–she avoided the little puppy area because that was the polite thing to do.

Further and faster Yalu ran around this large open spaced building. More owners unleashed their mean and vicious woof woofs to join in this mean game of chasing Yalu. Further and faster these mean and vicious woof woofs perused Yalu. People watched, smiling and entertained by their dog’s poor behavior.

Desperate to ditch these horribly mean and vicious woof woofs, Yalu ran to her people. Brian stopped taking blurry pictures of the pursuit and picked her up. That was not good enough. The mean and vicious woof woofs surrounded him. Yalu climbed up Brian. His head had to be cold from being inside so Yalu became his Golden Retriever cap and stood on his shoulders.

Finally, Brian got the hint–guys are a little too slow when it comes to getting hints–and realized something might be wrong. He also looked silly wearing a Golden Retriever on his head in public. He lowered Yalu and cradled a full size puppy in his arms. Yalu had a look on her face that said, “Please do not put me back down.”

The mean and vicious woof woofs that had now grown into a wolfpack surrounding Brian and our heroine. They got bored waiting for this scared prancing princess puppy puppy who ran to her owner and now refused to play. Some other poor dog was chosen as it. The mean and vicious woof woofs resumed their chase.

Unfortunately, that was not the only thing that went wrong in Yalu’s life. In of her adventures, Yalu And The Stinky Stink, she met a skunk and the skunk said hello back in its own special way.

In Defense Of Mr. Wesley

In Defense of Mr. Wesley

In Defense of Mr. Wesley

Mr. Wesley is the resident puppy dog of the house. His job is to project his people from monsters and any other dangers that lurk in the great unknown. It must be noted that not a single monster has ever been seen anywhere near the homestead. They know to stay away from Mr. Wesley.

How rude! Rusty was a guest at Mr. Wesley’s puppy palace and he liked to play rough, rough, rough. Rather than cause a scene and embarrass this younger Golden Retriever who should have know better, Mr. Wesley decided it was better for Rusty’s owner to severely reprimand his rambunctious behavior than show him up in a game of dominant dog–hey, that was Mr. Wesley’s story and he was sticking to it.

Puppies and Ice Cubes

What could be better than puppies and ice cubes? As today’s video shows, the two like to stick together.

Yalu was just as fascinated as these cute guys when it came to ice cubes. When she first arrived at her puppy palace with my sister and me, we brought her outside to play. After a while, I figured Yalu needed a drink so I went inside and decided to add some ice cubes to her water.

She dipped her nose in and then pulled back. Ice cold water was something new to her. She poked her nose at the ice cubes and watched them bounce in the water. That seemed to be the first time she had ever encountered ice in water. Once she realized the purpose of ice was to make her water cold, she stuck in her snout and a enjoyed her drink.

Puppies and Ice Cubes

Puppies and Ice Cubes

I had asked my artist Tielman to draw an illustration of Yalu having a drink of ice water. He did a pretty good job.

What Would A Cute Doggie Read?

What Would A Doggie Read?

What would a dog read?

Humm, what to read? It needs to be a really good story. One that a doggie would enjoy from start to finish. How about War and Peace? Nah, too long. Probably does not have a doggie as a main character either.

That is what I really want. A story about a doggie. Doggies make for great characters in any story, especially when they are the main character.

 

 

Now this doggie story needs pictures, but not just any kind of pictures. They need to jump out from the page. The pictures of the main character, which in my humble opinion should be a doggie, must to be well drawn.

Readers like me need to look at these doggie pictures and think, “Wow, that is a really really neat doggie picture.” That is what I think this because If I spoke, it would only sound like, “Woof, woof, woof.” The artist drawing these doggie pictures must have talent and be able to make the reader’s heart beat a little faster.

Jedi Dog

It is also important that that the doggie be the hero of the story and be the kind of doggie able to endure trials and tribulations. Trials and tribulations help build character. I want to read a doggie adventure story where the main character, who is a doggie, refuses to give up. Doing that shows that the puppy dog, when faced with adversity, has the smarts and character to overcome any problem. Cute, brown and fury would be nice too puppy dog extras.

Does such a fascinating dog tale exist? Not only is the answer yes, but there are two such stories about a smart puppy dog who overcomes adversity. One is called Yalu And The Puppy Room, the other Yalu And The Stinky Stink,

Both are page turners about a determined puppy dog looking for a forever home and who refuses to leave her favorite pet zebra outside in the dark. These two adventures can be yours for a total of $$5.98.

Two e-books,$5,98 can be downloaded to your computer, tablet or smart phone–that eliminates driving to and from a bookstore and allows for instant gratification. Be brave, be bold and read what the intellectually smart dogs read.
