My Pet Peeves

Dory tagged me to list my seven most annoying things. Now THIS was an easy list to make.

1) I hate the Roomba robot-vacuum with every ounce of my being. It bumps into my legs if I'm not looking, and it bumps against my crate. It also picks up crumbs faster than I can. So sometimes I attack it and try to bite it.

2) I hate getting WET. I hate having baths. I have to have two baths a week because of my allergies with special shampoo. Yuck. I also hate going outside if the grass is wet or if it's raining. I stand on the sidewalk and "aim" for the grass so I don't get my paws wet.

4) My dad gets pretty annoying sometimes. I hate it when I'm trying to take a nap and he tickles my paws. Also, he thinks it's really funny to stick his finger in my mouth when I'm yawning and not looking, so I close my mouth on it. It's stupid and annoying. I think my mom agrees on this one.

5) I hate it when my mom eats French fries and she won't share with me, no matter what tricks I do for her without being asked. French fries are my FAVORITE.

6) Actually, I find some of my trick requests rather annoying. I enjoy the challenge of "Get the lights!" and "Find it!" but I find "Sit," "Down," and "Come" a little beneath my intelligence level. So I don't bother doing those.

7) Like I mentioned in my random facts, I hate it when dogs touch/fight/wrestle/get too friendly at the dog park. I always run over and bark at them. Knock it off! Let's run around instead!

One thing that's definitely not annoying - making new DWB friends!

I want to wish Dory a very happy birthday on Friday.

Also, I'd like to thank my terrier buddy Keeley for bestowing me with the Golden Rose Award! I am very grateful to receive the honor. Thank you Keeley!

I'd like to pass the award on to some other wire fox terriers. First of all, Ozzy and Romeo. They just lost their dad and are grieving for him. We are thinking of you every day, buds! Hang in there!

I'd also like to award Axel for his amazing work to keep the Blaineville WFTs safe from convicted animal abuser Marc-Andre Laporte. He started a petition that has 2500 signatures now! And, the Barkalot Boyz got their newspaper in Florida to cover the story as well! So Jake and Just Harry should be awarded as well. Thanks you guys!


Gus and Louie said...

We don't have one of those robo vacs but Dad is threatening to get one but he thinks that Louie would chase it all around.. Since he can't hear he doesn't seem to be frightened of anything.. He thinks Dad's shopvac is really cool. Such a goofy puppy

Balboa & Mommy said...

ha ha ha,

My mommy nagged by daddy to take the pic too, he said he just gave up and took it.

I hate the vaccum and baths too. How dare your mom not share french fries, its a DWB rule, (I think).

You and I feel the same way about getting wet, Lenny! I pee in the driveway when it's raining! I refuse you get my paws wet and muddy! YUK!

Love ya lots,

There is a french fry tax in Florida.
You can look it up. It's true. All dogs must be given 10 percent of their owner's fries at every meal french fries are served.

Lorenza said...

I hate the vacumm cleaner too!
Have a good night

Sparky said...

I don't like getting wet either. At least not in baths! I absolutely hate baths!

Congratulations on the golden award. You deserve it!

Jackson said...

I actually don't mind the vacuum cleaner. Sometimes I'm even too lazy to move out of the way and they have to vacuum round me. Congrats on your golden rose! I think it's pawsome to pass it onto Ax and the Barkalots. J x

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Lenny,
oh my doG... and I thought I was the only one with 'psycho' humans.. MY humans try to put their fingers in my mouth/ touch my tongue when I am yawning too!! Buddy, we are on the same boat..

Amber said...

Teehee, I love French fries too! I can't have any now cause mom said i'm on diet sobsob.. What a weird looking vaccum cleaner. Congrats on the golden rose!

Ralph said...

We don't have a robot vacuum but the other is so loud I try to bite it. I don't mind a bath though :-)


Wiry Axel said...

Thanks for the award Lenny, I am deeply touched. I don't need awards though, just knowing I am working to keep those wires safe is enough reward. Since you blogged, our numbers have DOUBLED!!!


Joe Stains said...

my friends dad sticks his finger in his dog's mouth when she yawns too. It must be a dad thing. I am SO glad we don't have a roomba, it sounds awful.

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh my pinky says she would love Roomba robot vacuum but I'm not so sure about that. I can't deal with the regular vacuum cleaner.

Hugs and tail wags

Peanut said...

You know what my mom does that same french fry thing. What is wrong with these women?

Kirby said...

I'm a vaccum hater too, but I don't have one of those robot ones. That must be really annoying. I hope you try your best to destroy it!

Your pal,

Hey Lenny, My mom's getting all excited about your stupid vacuum cleaner. Seems to think we need one. Geez. I can just imagine how much I'll like that.


P.S. I've hung out with some of those Blainesville wires, after they got new homes of course. The ones who made are a happy lot now.

4xBs said...

Hi Lenny, so you hate the Roomba. our mom wants to get one for us, so now maybe we should tell her no no no.

that's so terrible that you have to have so many baths. yuk. we would hate that too.


Comet and BLU said...

Two baths a week?!?!?!?
We only have two baths a year and we hate Hate HATE every minute of it! We feel so sorry for you.
We don't like to walk on wet grass either. It's gross.

Pacco de Mongrel said...

i hate that sound pollution produce by the evil vacuum

Stanley said...

Oh, Lenny!

You and I could TALK. Sometimes my girl just gets a little too huggy or cuddly with me and I can't take another touch from her, but she's famous for trying to catch a little cuddle (or tickle) when I'm sleeping. I HATE that.

The Roomba would drive me NUTS.

Congratulations on the award! I think you chose some great dogs to pass it on to!

Goober love,

Dear Lenny's Humans,
I hate vacuuming. Are you happy with your Roomba? Does it do a good job? Do you think it's worth the money?
