I’m opening my Christmas presents. I’m wearing my Christmas shirt!

I am a very talented and cute dachshund named Zoey.

Nearly every week in 2016, I “sat” at the laptop (I’m a lapdog, too!) and wrote a blog about … well, mainly about me.

It’s because I like to “shake” things up as I “roll” with the flow.

Am I funny? I can do tricks and write my trick words into my post.

I’ve been blogging since 2011 about my life as a cute dachshund, sharing stories and photos to demonstrate the fact.

In 2016, I blogged about several things, including:

  • Being both a dog blogger and a canine poet able to write poems from a dog’s perspective.
  • Understanding dog behavior and what dogs need and want from their owners. I wrote about how pet owners—I call mine my BFF—need to let us know how much we mean to them, pay attention to us (like all of the time) and give us lots of treats (even healthy ones).
  • Realizing the elements of responsible pet ownership, like giving us healthy food without too many unhealthy table scraps, avoiding giving us chocolate and onions, and taking us on regular walks.
  • And, most importantly, telling really interesting stories from my own life.

I also wrote about cats, even though most of them don’t like me too much. I like cats, birds, geese and anything else in the animal kingdom, but not dogs, at least those larger than me. I bark at them, and they look at me as if I’m silly, so I bark again, while also wiggling my tail. They then ignore me.

I don’t like it, so I’ve concluded that cats are safer; they’re not keen on dogs, and I can just pretend they are.

In 2017, I may take a small break from blogging as my BFF and I figure out our blogging goals for the year. Like her, I’m not getting very many Likes, which I don’t understand, because I’m totally cute and fun and the best dog ever!
