Puppy Prison

DiMamma insisted upon a puppy prison for Yalu—something about teething and needing a place to send a naughty puppy for a time out were the reasons why. There could be no arguing with DiMamma because she was the top dog of the puppy palace.

Anyway, the cage was supposed to be set up in the garage, but if the cage was in the garage, there would be no room to park the CRV so the puppy prison ended up in the den.

In theory a little brown dog, who shall remain forever cute, was supposed to sleep within the confines of her puppy prison. Well, she could not sleep on a hard plastic floor so her bed had to go in there. There were some newspapers spread across the floor so Yalu could catch up on her reading and a bowl of water just in case she needed a drink.

There was talk of putting a harmonica in there, but Yalu might do late night renditions of Nobody Knows The Troubles I’ve Seen and that is not easy for a puppy dog to do because you need fingers to play the harmonica.

So this was the place where Yalu was supposed to sleep, behind a close door, where she could not get out. Sigh.

Even worse, when everyone went to bed the den got dark. A certain prancing princess puppy was all alone and she did not like being alone. Why? She was a people pup. There had to be some way of busting out of puppy prison.

Oh the horror, the horror of having to spend time alone on a comfortable doggie bed with a bowl of water at her side and newspapers to read in case she got bored.

But wait! The den was dark. How could she read in the dark? As a matter of fact how could a puppy dog read at all?

There had to be a getting out of the dreaded puppy prison. After some thought, Yalu, trapped within the confines of a metal mesh cage, came up with a brilliant idea. She cried for help.

Puppy Prison

Puppy Prison

Who would come to her rescue? Who would dare risk the wrath of the DiMamma and rescue her from a night of loneliness? Someone with intrepid soul had to step. Daddy, Daddy, Daddy answered the call.

He heard the cries of a puppy in distress and released Yala from her puppy prison. Instead of making her sleep on the couch, or gasp…in the garage, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy brought Yalu to the master bedroom and found a spot on the bed with him and DiMamma.

All parties lived happily ever after.

Is that the end? Oh no, you must keep read so you, kind reader, can become the proud owner of two thrilling, fantastic and wonderfully written e-books called Yalu And The Puppy Room and Yalu And The Stinky Stink.

One Of Life’s Ironies

The world is filled with ironies. I have always found it odd for a dog to be afraid of other dogs, but Yalu was cynophobic throughout her life. Big dog, small dog, it did not matter Yalu wanted nothing to do with other dogs.

One Of Life's Ironies

One Of Life’s Ironies

Next to Yalu’s puppy palace lived a small white Pomeranian named Karma. When he came out on his leash, Karma would put his four paws together and hop on the grass making him look like a caterpillar, hence his nickname.

When the weather was nice, Yalu and I would sit outside and sometimes, the Caterpillar would come out. Karma was a friendly dog and would always want to say hello.

One Of Life's Ironies

Whenever he came near Yalu, Yalu would hide behind my chair or rush back into the basement.

She wanted nothing to do with another dog and would give me strange looks whenever I petted the Caterpillar. Yes, I am guilty of petting around.

Yalu’s Nicknames

 

Yalu has gone by a many nicknames like the little yipper, cute stuff, the prancing princess puppy and my favorite kangabunark: part kangaroo, part bunny, part shark. However, DiMamma gave Yalu her best nickname: girlie-girl.

Yalu was never a water dog. Water was for…dogs. Chelsea, her predecessor, loved the water and would spend hours soaking in a plastic kid’s swimming pool. Yalu was more into lounging around her puppy palace and displaying her very girlie-girl approach on life.

Nicknames

Nicknames

This picture does Yalu justice. She is playful in a very refined regal sort of way. Granted, she might, might fetch a ball when someone threw it. After coming back with this round bouncy object, the human response would be to throw the ball again.

Nicknames

People throw a ball. A Golden Retriever retrieves the thrown ball. Welcome to the human/dog relationship.

The second time someone would throw a ball, Yalu would give you a look as though to say, “I just brought that back. Why did you throw it again? I am not your servant. You can get the ball later. Now pet me, you fool!”

Nicknames

Why act do refined? The answer is simple. Yalu came from a royal pedigree.

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 out for walkies or car rides, but that is not the same as actually getting petties, going out for walkies or a enjoying a car ride.

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

Puppies live in the now! As in, let’s play right now. Pet me right now—later can be done later.

What do people do that keep them away from their puppy dogs a long time? Dogs wonder about this. One minute in people time equals seven minutes in puppy dog time.

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

When there is a dog who has the patience of say, a puppy, waiting for people takes up a very large chunk of the day.

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

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

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

The personal puppy dog entertainer could do lots and lots of fun stuff like play ball with a puppy dog. Playing ball would get a puppy dog running and a tail wagging. There could be petties whenever a dog deemed petties necessary and as all puppy dogs know petties is an essential part of a puppy dog’s day. Think of petties as coffee.

Pop quiz: is there ever a bad time for petties? Ha! I just gave you 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 a puppy dog interaction with people whenever the puppy dog wants. Personal puppy entertainers could be young people, old people, tall people, short people.

Waiting For People

Waiting For 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.

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

Let’s just say the world would be a much better place for puppy dogs.

After reviewing this wonderful 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.

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

One is called Yalu And The Puppy Room.

Waiting For People

Waiting For People

The other: Yalu And The Stinky Stink.

You will laugh. You will cry. You’ll wonder how a little brown dog named Yalu managed to communicate so many great ideas to me. Take the big step and become part of Yalu’s world. All you, kind reader, have to do is be brave, be bold and find out why Yalu is so wonderful by clicking the book banner below.

Petties

Petties

Petties

Petties, it is the fuel that makes a puppy dog’s tail wag. Without petties, life for a puppy dog is meaningless. Every dog, no matter how tough desires petties. Only people have the power to make petties happen.

Who is qualified to pet a puppy dog? That is a trick question. Anyone can pet a puppy dog.

Petties

Petties

When can someone pet a puppy dog? Another trick question because anytime is a good time for petties. Under the table petties during dinner, two in the morning petties, it is all good. In fact, you can instantly tell someone’s character if they pet your dog. Petting a puppy dog equals a great first impression.

Petties

Petties

You might be wondering where someone can pet a puppy. Wow, three trick questions in a row. A puppy dog can be petted almost anywhere—just refrain petting a puppy dog while driving, operating heavy machinery, while in a dentist chair, carrying groceries, hang gliding or juggling flaming chain saws.

Petties

Petties

How much petties should you give your puppy dog? That is simple. Wait for the tail to stop wagging or something more important to come up like food, sleep, play time or walkies.

Petties

Petties

Do you know what you get when you pet a puppy dog? Sure there are the tail wags and puppy kisses, but there is something far more important.

Petties

Petties

All puppy dogs contain Vitamin C. Now this is not the same Vitamin C you get from citrus products, this vitamin is better. When a puppy gets petted, a whole lot of cute is released. Cute is the C in Vitamin C.

Remember when you pet a puppy, everyone wins.

You, kind reader, need to find out how I became a dogoligst. Your first steps are to become the proud owner of Yalu And The Puppy Room and Yalu And The Stinky Stink.

When you take this great step, you will see the world through the eyes of a Golden Retriever named Yalu. For the amazingly low price of $2.99 each, these finely crafted e-books can be yours by going to Amazon.com. All you have to do is be brave, be bold and click the book link below.

Zoom

 

Zoom

Zoom

Zoom is a game I love to play with Yalu. How do you play Zoom?

All you need is a puppy dog, a back yard and people paws. Start by using two hands to pet the puppy on the tummy and sides—all the petting gets a puppy dog’s energy level up to critical mass.

Zoom

Zoom

Once at critical mass (you will know when you are there because the puppy dog will want to leap into action), step back and watch the puppy take off.

Zoom

Zoom

Zoom is best played in the center of the yard so when the puppy runs by you get the full zoom effect. Oh and you have to say “Zoom” whenever the puppy passes in one direction. Then you turn in the direction the puppy dog went and say, “Zoom” when the puppy digs runs by you again–just keep saying, “Zoom.”

If you are really good, try touching the puppy dog when she runs past you and if the puppy dog is good, she will get close enough to let you almost touch her.

What does Zoom do?

Zoom

Zoom

Well, in fifteen minutes, zoom wears out most puppy dogs with a minimum exertion on your part. Zoom will help your puppy dog sleep during the night. Zoom is also works on young children who have problems going to sleep.

After playing zoom the next thing you should do is read a story to your puppy dog—I guess you can read a story to the kids too.

Zoom

Zoom

My recommendation is an action pact adventure called in Yalu And The Stinky Stink.  This story has everything important: a curious puppy dog, a pet zebra, yes, a pet zebra, and more action pact drama than you can shake a tail at.

How exciting is Yalu And The Stinky Stink? Well you, kind reader, can find out by venturing to Amazaon.com and getting your very own e-book that you can be downloaded to your smart phone, tablet, or computer in mere moments. All you have to do is be brave, be bold and click the book banner below.

The Dog Gym Part II

The Dog Gym Part II

The Dog Gym Part II

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.

The Dog Gym Part II

The Dog Gym Part II

Saturday mornings were the days where Yalu was forced to visit this place by people she loved and trusted 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.

The Dog Gym Part II

The Dog Gym Part II

There was a part of the dog gym where the little baby puppies gathered with their parents. This would soon be 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 Dog Gym Part II

The Dog Gym Part II

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. Being a guy, he needed training on basic dog habits.

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. That was the plan. 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 sounded like a pretty good tail to tell. What’s that? You don’t know about Yalu’s other stories? Well, then you to 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 your to computer, tablet or smart phone in mere moments.

Read these marvelous stories to someone special. Better yet, have someone special read them to you. All you have to do is be brave, be bold and click on the book banner below.

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

This is the first part a story about a prancing princess puppy, pictured right. We begin our adventure with a prim and proper Golden Retriever living a dog’s life.

One of her adoring subjects came up with the not so bright idea of taking her to a dog gym.

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

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 wanted in her puppy palace. Meanwhile back to this story that is about to become a living nightmare.

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

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

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 reason for taking a perfectly happy prancing princess puppy who have everything she ever wanted at her puppy palace to do dog gym.

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

Yalu’s trips to the dog gym happened on Saturdays. 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

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

dog gym.

Dogs were already there. A wild pack of thirteen of mean and vicious woof woofs chased a poor helpless puppy 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.

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

Yalu was forced to join in this hunt and began being a polite little prancing princess puppy dog, 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 dog in their midst. A dog vote was taken. Yalu was it.

AHHHHHHHHHH! An entire pack of mean and vicious snarling barking mean … Oh wait, I already mentioned mean? Well, they had to be really really mean and vicious woof woofs gave chase.

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

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!

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

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 behavior.

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

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 sized puppy in his arms.

Yalu had a look on her face that said, “Please don’t put me back down.”

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

The Dog Gym Part I

The Dog Gym Part I

Unfortunately, that was not the only thing that went wrong in Yalu’s life. In her second adventure, Yalu And The Stinky Stink, she met a skunk and the skunk said hello in only a way a skunk can.

You, kind reader, can find out what happened to our heroine by becoming a proud owner of this e-book. For just $2.99 you can experience real life puppy drama and find out how Yalu rescued her pet zebra. All you have to do is be brave, be bold and click the book banner below.
