The Life Of Lincoln Bear

image1A great email from Becci in Nashville, y’all- explaining just what it is like to BE Lincoln Bear. She says: (followed by my comments on each.)

He is scared of:
1. “Balloons” (Well, if you kinda rub on ’em to make that squeaking sound- sure, I’ll buy that.)
2. “Tall men in hats” (So…rules out meeting his namesake Abe Lincoln. If he was alive.)
3. “The sound of bacon frying” (Great. More for me.)
4. “Remote controlled helicopters” (Like the ones those kiosk guys fly RIGHT AT YOU at the mall during Christmas? I feel your pain, Linc.)

“In true lab fashion, he eats everything in sight – most memorably a chocolate orange, an onion casserole he pulled out of the oven and a whole salami. We have more baby proofing devices than most parents due to the fact he can open cabinets and drawers to find food. He once locked us out of the house and turned on the gas (not the same day, thank God.) With a nose like that, who couldn’t help but snorgle him, though?”

“Maybe He’s Too Big And Drooly”

unnamedThat headline is part of the email we got; here’s the rest! “Hello! This is Chaucer, my eight year old English Mastiff. He and I have long been fans of Cute Overload but we didn’t know if maybe he’s “too big and drooly for its hallowed pages.” But then we thought, Hey, Nosevember might be a good fit for us! Cheers, Ellie and Chaucer.”

[*Note: PS- He can NEVER be “too big and drooly.” -Ed.]

Got a Bit Of That “Marmaduke” Thing Goin’ Here

P.S. “Love the blog. It is my daily dose of happiness.”

“Hey Honey? Have You Vacuumed Max Yet?”

“I’m doing it right now!”

Otis Vs. The Couch

Round One goes to the couch. Try again, Otis.

“I just got a Great Dane puppy named Otis, who was 10 weeks old yesterday. He arrived pretty well housebroken, and after our way-too-early walk the other morning, he decided to attempt the couch. Soon, little man, but not this time.” -Christopher S.

In Which Rosco Gets A Pawdicure

[I’ve got TWO front paws there, hoomin. I will let you know when you’re finished. BTW, can I soak these in some Palmolive when you’re done?]

I Passed My Driver’s Licence* Test!

[Parallel parking was the worst! You had to back in just so, then pull forward and even it out. And the Drivers Ed instructor- who was named Ed- imagine that- he had REALLY stinky breath. But I saw him leave after we finished- he had a beater Honda and I got this schweeeeet Rolls, so bottom line…I win.

[*Note: Barry is a British puppeh, so…British spelling, yo. He also loves his bike. )

C.O. Hiking Safety Tips

Hiking in the great outdoors can be a fun and rewarding activity. However, Nature is full of scary things that will totally eat you, so follow these tips:

  1. Remain on trails at all times.
  2. Do not disturb rocks, fallen trees, or remains of crashed UFOs.
  3. If you encounter hikers with a pronounced interest in chainsaws, hockey masks, or banjo music, notify authorities.
  4. For added protection, consider bringing a very large dog.
