Cute dogs can be Daddy’s Girls!

In Cute Dogs, Shelley and Zoey, Shelley Widhalm on September 27, 2015 at 5:30 am

I'm a daddy's girl. Can't you tell?

I’m a daddy’s girl. Can’t you tell?

I’m a daddy’s girl, too. And a girl of everybody who will love on me, because I’m cute.

Hi, my name is Zoey, and I’m a very cute miniature long-haired dachshund.

This is why I’m a daddy’s girl:

Shelley’s dad gives me attention whenever he sees me. He plays with me, including tug-of-war and keep away, moving his hand under the blanket so I can chase it. He pets me and tells me how cute I am. And he makes me feel like his home is my home.

Duh, everywhere I go is my home.

Here are some photos of my last visit with Shelley’s dad, who I saw last weekend.

I am cute taking a nap.

I am cute taking a nap, don’t you think?

Here's a close-up of me taking the same nap. I am so, so cute!

My doggie journal is important, too

As a dog blogger, I keep a journal so that I can come up with good ideas for writing.

I noticed that as I journal about the dog life, being a cute dog and relate what my BFF and co-blogger Shelley writes about writing to my dog world, I come up with other ideas to write about. Basically, I’ve started writing about my life, because it’s so interesting.

Like yesterday, I went on a walk with Shelley and her friend down Fourth Street and back, and I sniffed around a large light pole, walking around and around it. Two dogs had just walked by it, and I’d barked at them and then I wanted to see what they’d been up to.

Shelley’s friend said that I must be checking my email.

Email? No, I don’t get email.

I just sniff and explore the world, and once a week I write about it. Why? Because I’m cute Zoey and I’ve got lots of stories to tell.

Cute dog blogger at work

In All About Me, Being Cute, Shelley and Zoey, Shelley Widhalm on September 13, 2015 at 11:30 am

I am the product. I am the process.

I am cute.

Product and process.

My BFF and co-blogger Shelley blogged this week about writer’s block and how just doing writing helps you write and get the words to flow. It’s like the process of writing helps you write. As you write, you get a product.

Yep, I’m philosophical. I’m smart. And I’m cute.

My name is Zoey, and I’m the cutest dachshund ever.

While Shelley works on her writing at the coffee shop, I sit with her staring out at the sidewalk, wiggling my tail at all the passersby. Most of them stop and ask to pet me. And I eat it up, wiggling my tail so fast you just see a blur.

I get told that I’m cute, I have a cute face, I’m pretty, I’m friendly, and I’m oh so nice.

In fact, I consider myself the ambassador of cuteness.

Check it out, me being cute and all.

I'm cute when I'm sleeping.

I'm cute when I'm awake.

And I'm cute when I want something, like treats!

Why dogs and cats need their own magazines

I am sitting atop some newspapers. Now, I need a photo of me on top of magazines written just for dogs.

I am sitting atop some newspapers. Now, I need a photo of me on top of magazines written just for dogs.

Dogs (and cats, too) should have magazines geared toward dogs (and cats) who are able to read.

I’m a dog. I can read. And I’m cute.

People have magazines for every hobby, interest, craft and political leaning, plus celebrity gossip, news and entertainment.

But dogs, what do we get? Magazines geared toward humans about training your pet, caring for your pet and doing pet-related things. The magazines aren’t meant for us and our interests.

I propose that the following magazines be published:

  • Dogs
  • Us, Weekly (for Dogs)
  • National Dog and Geography
  • Time (to Play with Your Human)
  • Dog’s Digest
  • The Dog
  • Dog Style

I could go on and on, but this gives the basic idea that there is something missing. We dogs need our news and entertainment not just in the forms of balls, toys and treats, but in selection of reading material.

Thanks,

Your Dog Friend
