Just in case you forgot what I look like. N.mom seems to have forgotten that I am a very photogenic doode.

I was very good today. I went to the U. Village where I was well behaved at the pet store and was rewarded with a new toy. I was patient at the Kiehl's store where n.mom oohed and aahed at the new self tanners.

Hey mom, get a clue and just go to the park with me!

I even managed to slide into a hoity toity store and get a drink of water. I like a place that has dog bowls in the store.

N.mom even spent more on her camera because they let me into the store.

The best part of today was my post-work pre dinner walk. I saw the twins! Two sister spaniels that are a little younger than me. I love them and try and woo them with my good looks and manners. It sometimes works. Today it sort of worked. I think their mom was ready to go home and order pizza.

I am very awake.

N. mom has tried everything to get me to settle down. Its not working.

I have three squeakies going at time and all are fair game, including my new glow in the dark one!

I sing when my n.mom leaves.

I really sing when she leaves.

T.Hmom is not amused.

However, imagine how good I'll be at the hunt.

N.mom is back, I am so happy I took her for a walk.

I did ignore her the first fifteen minutes she got home. There was a bone and that is better than any human.

Today I also got my first wasp bite. My nose is lopsided.

I hate Thursdays. Thursdays mean obedience class.

I am not obedient, well, not very.

My N.mom is going to Texas tomorrow which means that TH mom gets to take care of me. They'll be no martingale collars and naysaying.

Thank goodness.

I wonder in n. mom can get a posting in Siberia.

This whole thing with Bush's polyps and colonoscopy got me thinking this weekend.

Who would I appoint as head of the nation when I underwent my routine yearly teeth cleanings?

I guess it would have to be my VP!

I wonder who my VP would be?

I know that Phracey, my sissy, would be my first lady (not that way), but I have yet to establish a running mate.

Anyone want to volunteer?


I realize this picture makes me look like a LFBP.

I am not one. In fact, I am on another hunger strike, so I am a LSBP.

Today they are relenting and buying me new food.

Phracey is also not eating. Great minds think alike.

Is this the reason n.mom buys so many shoes from Zappos.com?

Or could it be that she just likes shoes?

Your guess is as good as mine.

Lesson never to be repeated:

If you give Ernest frosty paws after 9, he'll never settle down.

N.mom's blog has been locked by blogger.

They think its spam.

She is not amused.


From an early age, I believed in showing my gnashers.

NM here....

All you dogs, when do you go to sleep?

Ernest used to be a good sleeper. Ready for bed around 9 pm and then one could move on with ones chores without basset supervising.

It isn't happening now.

He's awake much later.

Do your humans enforce an artificial bedtime on you or do you automatically get ready for bed?

Do you have any bedtime rituals?


N.mom tired n.mom

Here I look like my dad. Am I not handsome?

This was my first real time riding out of my crate in a car.

I was very brave and then I took a nap.

Good thing because lockdown is about 35 minutes in good traffic from home.

Wally, I am going to think about why I am disappointed. I may be just plain jealous.


Monday, July 16, 2007

I am back. I did not have a roommate for the weekend, thus I was lonely.

My moms promise me that one of them will be home for the next seven weeks so no lockdown for me.

I think they are plotting to send me to see my sissy for the month of September, something about dissertation writing and grecian lollygagging.

As long as I'm with Phracey, I'm okay.

After a very hot night, I finally managed to finally get some sleep.

Yes, I am asleep.

Yes, I am very comfortable.

Tomorrow I go back to lock down for the weekend.

Free me.

Remember what my mom said about keeping cool. I don't think this counts.

Think of this as art photography, okay?

From Ernest's n.mom:

Dear furry ones (you know who you are),

Why in anyone diety's name are you on your couch (Ko excluded), when the floor is much cooler?

Seriously, heat rises.

smooches on your noses and frozen kongies in your freezer,

Its hot out there, stay hydrated.

A public service announcement from ernest the puppy.

Happy Friday and smooches from a tiny basset puppy!


yes, that is my n.mom and she does not normally smile.

Those are my half brothers.

Are they not cute?

N.mom got an email from my Mama Stephanie asking if we were going through Dallas anytime soon and would we be willing to transport said tiny dog. N.mom said sure, we would make a special trip (TH mom needs the miles), but could not guarantee dog would not end up in bunker being groomed for vice president.

Here are more pictures of them and they do stack well. I am concerned that there are some gratuitious booty shots of one of them and so young!

Why would anyone want to wear such a silly thing on their back when it could say ---

Who is the tiny dog who can't get into the chair?

That was me! Last fourth of july! Last year was wierd, TH mom went to England on our US holiday, but did not hang with Kerrio and Tealeaf. N.mom had to hold me during the fireworks. I wasn't scared, I just couldn't see over the railing.

This year, both moms are home.




What up dog?

My n. mom keeps on saying that.

I don't get it.

I am short, I do not look like "Dog the bounty hunter" and I would hide behind my TH mom if I saw his wife, Beth.

My Aunt Beth is beautiful. Dog's Beth is scary!

Looks like I got a pawdicure reprieve until Thursday. Happy day!

More later.

My n.mom is very opinonated about many things, but typically very polite.She is very upset about a conversation she had today with someone who just doesn't quite get it.

Read about it here and tell Ernest what you would do.

For what its worth, n.mom and TH mommy are not fostering the dog, this is the second doggie that this person would have had and given up.
