I'm with my sister, half brothers, mom and dad in Goldendale. I miss my moms, but I know that I will be back to terrorize them soon.

I hope they save me a few presents to open when I get back.

Here's hoping that all my friends and foes have a great Christmas/Festivus and a Happy New Year. My moms are running off to Italy to bring me back pasta (my favorite food in the world) and hopefully come back with some bonios and discuss mannerist architecture and its relationship to gelato flavors.

I'm sure Mama Stephanie will provide them with Ernest updates to update all of you.

I am feeling way better. I'm four on the floor now.

I see that Sophie is also feeling better.

My paw hurts. I am currently a tripod (sorry Finnegan) unless I am offered a lap, an ottoman or my biscuit. Then I'm a speed demon/gymnast.

More later and smoochies to my Sophina La Brador.

While I am in Goldendale, keeping the troops amused and working on my campaign, my mom's are doing some clean up of their Emails. found this sent by my when I was a tiny basset baby boy:

B is for basset, alone in his car
O is for opening, a window's worth safe him to keep
is for raspberries, to keep him amused

E is for entertainment, delivered right there
is for dish, with water and ice

- June 23, 2006

I think they should keep their day jobs of keeping ecosystems functioning and visualized and tidal waves from sweeping bassets off the beach. What do you think?

For all you waiting for my card, its coming. My card was stuck behind the big flood in Washington state for eight days.

If you still want a non denominational ernest the puppy is not going to pester you into voting for him until a bit later; but let us rejoice in the season card - please send me an email at
ernestpuppy AT gmail DOT (not DOG), communist (com).

My moms have friends that worked for dot.communists and now sit on their rears all day eating bonbons and reading mysteries. They (the moms) are not bitter in the slightest.

No siree.

Other than that, I found the perfect present today for my mama Stephanie!

I would share it with you, but I know Phracey reads this blog religiously, but non denominationally and I don't want to give it away.

It is so cool. I believe Papa Joe and Mama Stephanie will fight over it like the moms do with the heating pad.

These are the sibs, a SUMD (Timmy the flat coated retriever) and Nobel Spot. They better be ready for a real man dog coming their way soon! Ernest who is happy to be home (sort of, its boring here) is going to descend upon Rancho Oxboro soonly.

I cannot believe that not only is my beautful sissy in the house, but so is Lola! and Spot! and Timmy! I cannot wait to hide behind Timmy.

Ernest, who waits in the dark of the house for his peeps to come rescue him and plug back in the Christmas lights

Word to my who is now a doctor and she owes it all to this doode, Henry Stommel. Okay, not really, but alot of his ideas made her more curious than a basset hound who is wondering where his roasted acorn squash is.

I am not due for any shots right now, but can she administer them if need be?

Am I supposed to call her something else?

Will she be too busy to take me for a walk?

Oh the ponderables.

Due to Alaska Airlines mechanical delays on my n.moms flight, I am to be released on good behavior tomorrow.

Free ME!

Actually, I am going to miss my pal, Rocky. He's a basset/German shepherd mix and everyone says that we're the two coolest dudes in lockdown. He looks like a shepherd, but on short legs. I'm going to ask if we can get one of our own.

Lockdown update:

It has snowed here. I am okay. Its almost gone.

My new roommate is a basset mix named Rocky. We are getting along like Cheney and the NRA.
Its nice to jump over someone my size.

My sissy is under storm alert 2007. Apparently the snow is so deep in the 509, she's tunneling her way out. It better be snowing when I arrive for Christmas.

My mom is almost a doctor, she needs to make sure she's one before I need my next shots.
