My mom is movie crazy!

So my mom is movie crazy and my rents keep trying to make me do things by being really annoying. Apparently this is sport for them.
Here's the latest:

Movies, Movies, La La La

Ok, so first, I have a little splaining to do - my mom and my dad both had broken computers, so I couldn't look at any of my friends' blogs for like a week or something. It was pretty much a nightmare.
But this post is really about movies! The first movie was shot by the web cam today and it's about howling. Last night, we were driving over to my Auntie Kathryn's and Uncle Ansel's house for pizza night (hey, did I mention they finally got engaged!) and I was super excited and my parents started to howl because they are totes weird. And then it happened - I started to howl like a wolf! And then today, my grandma came over and the rents wanted to show Grandma my sweet howling, so all three of them started to howl and I got into it too, but not as much as last night.

And this second movie my mom just found on my dad's computer and it's about what me and my dad did when my mom was away in Cali a couple of months ago. She was shocked, but we were just being dudes!

Wordle: Ikeslife

Clickify to bigify!
So Wordle is this cool site that my dad created this pic from.
This is what the Wordle people have to say about Wordle:
"Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends."
My mom is a wordie type so she thinks it's cool. What do I think? Whatever.

Tail Strangulation and Mommy Talks to Temple Grandin!

Ok, so I will start with the important stuff. Odin tried to kill me with his tail and I have the pictures to prove it. This shouldn't be viewed by puppies, so if you are a puppy, please look away because this is the stuff of nightmares.

So this is where I realize, with a start, that he's trying to kill me.

And this is where my airway gets blocked.

And now I'm starting to panic.

And Odin releases me and I gasp for air.

And here, I'm too tired to fight.

And now, here's a link to a radio show that my mom called in on and she talked to Temple Grandin about me because she thinks I have a problem. My mom is at 42:45 on the podcast.

A Major Award!

Ok, so I went to work with my dad today because Bunny wasn't there even though she's the Friday dog, and she's my dad's coworkers dog who my dad loves because she's a big, sweet pitbull. Anyway, when I got home, there was a package at the door addressed to yours truly: Ike Andy Thompson.
My mom opened the box and there were two packets of organic pumpkin treats which are awesome and my mom ate one because they say they have human-grade ingredients and my mom said they are delish! But the best part of the box was the major award from MangoMinster 2009! OMD - you won't believe it - it's a trophy engraved with my name! Woot! Thanks Mango for having the best contest DWBs has ever had! I love my award!!!!
My mom said I look 'proud as a peacock!'

Isn't it cool?

Nom, nom!

So I was asking my mom if I could start charging a stud fee now because I'm a champion show dog, and she said "it doesn't work like that for you now, Ike." I wonder what she means. Maybe it's because I'm married?

Edit: Aaaaawwww snap!: I forgot to wish one of my best friends and the dog responsible for this post A HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY 10th birthday! Hope Joeypalooza is great Mr. Stains!

New collar and tribute.

Ok, so my mom has been collarazy lately and she bought me another new collar and then my dad used the drill and put holes in it and then put these awesome stars on it which make me look kind of like a cowboy and maybe even a little punk. So anyway, here's a picture of me in the new collar. And those are tears of joy at how handsome I look.

And on another, sad note, I've been thinking a lot about Bogart's mom Lulu losing her husband and Bogart losing his dad and it makes me really sad. So I am extending my sweet Boston thoughts and out their way to help them heal. It also makes me really greatful for what I have and reminds me that Lulu is very lucky to have Bogart and Bogart is very lucky to have Lulu because both of them need lots and lots of support right now. So if you haven't already, head on over to Bogart's blog and lend your heart and your paw to two wonderful beings that need a lot of love right now. And on Joe Stains' advice - my mom raises her glass to Klaus - may his soul come back and find his true love once again.

Wearing Heels.

Ok, so Maggie and Mitch - those crazy Airedogs - gave me a very special award and here's what it means: "It's a special magical 'fairy tale' slipper bestowed on those who bring a little 'magic' into our lives via their blog's creativity!"

Thanks you two! I would like to pass this award on to my wife, Martha - of course!, Peanut - because he's super cool, and Mango because Mangominster was the highlight of this year and Deefor because he has to live with Arrow and there must be a little magic in his life to tolerate that! Oh, and I want Murphy to have it too, because he would think it's super sissy, and he will get all embarassed and stuff and then worry that other dogs think he's not as tough as he really is.
