Lucie, but my real name is Luzerne. My doggie brother is Vinnie, but his real name is St. Vincent.
What do you call your 2-leggeds?
Mommy and Daddy.
What K9 Breed are you?
How Old Are You?
I am 7 ½ but my brother Vinnie is only 5 ½.
Do you live inside or outside and more importantly – do you run your household?
We live in the house with Mommy and Daddy. They let us go wherever we want.
Where abouts in the world do you live?
We live in Westminster, Colorado, but we don’t really know where that is.
How often do you take your 2 leggeds for a walk?
We don’t walk to much anymore because I have problems walking. My legs hurt me a lot when I walk to much.
Do you do lots of adventuring when out and about?
We love to bark and run around with all the other puppy dogs who walk by our yard.
Do your 2 leggeds allow you to talk to other K9’s on your walks or do they huff and puff behind you and urge you to hurry along?
Mommy and Daddy don’t let us play with other dogs to much. They say because we are so big, other doggies get scared of us, even though we are wagging our tails a lot.
Are you allowed to do ‘stuff’ on your walks freely? Do you walk off or on lead?
Mommy and Daddy let us catch up on all the good p-mail out there, then we usually stop for cuddles along the way. Mommy and Daddy make us wear our leads and our gentle leaders. They say it makes it easier for them to use those. I guess we are kind of big and strong. They say those stupid things help Mommy and Daddy. I don’t like them though. I wish Mommy and Daddy would just let us do our own thing.
Have your 2 leggeds ever embarrassed you? If so how?
No. Mommy and Daddy love us very much. They would never do that, except maybe by giving us too much kissy-face.
Do your 2 leggeds expect you to fetch the ball/toy every time during soft/hard play?
No. Sometimes, Vinnie likes to do that, but not me.
Do you have favourite toys and if so, what are they?
I have lots of babies. Mommy gets me new ones a lot too. I like my bear baby, and my bunny baby, and my Lamb chops, and my birdie baby and …. all my babies. Sometimes though when Mommy buys me a new toy, Vinnie takes it. Mommy says she buys the babies for both of us. But sometimes Vinnie hurts my babies.
Are you a very much loved K9?
Yes we are
Do your 2 leggeds take you away on holidays with them?
No. They go away sometimes, and don’t take us with them, but it’s OK. Uncle Tony comes over to take care of us and he always gives us lots of cookies.
Are you given treats? What are your favourites?
We like cookies, and jerky treats, and peanut butter treats and French fries and pizza and ….. Mommy makes us all kinds of yummy treats too. When it is super hot outside, Mommy makes us frozen peanut butter treats. She always lets us lick out the peanut butter jar too. YUM!
Are you fed a nutritional diet and is your food moist or dry or both or even the raw meat diet?
Mommy makes all our wet food. She puts all kinds of yummies in it for us. We get crunchies and wet food every day.
Are you allowed to sample your 2 leggeds food?
Yeah! Sometimes we even steal it away from Mommy and Daddy when they are not looking too. That’s really fun until Mommy gets mad at us for doing that.
Do you deliberately play up at times, just to annoy or worry the 2 leggeds?
No. Vinnie does though. Sometimes he is a pill. I am a good girl. I try to listen to Mommy and Daddy. I tell them when Vinnie is being bad.
Do you have a bed or a favourite sleeping place?
Anywhere Mommy and Daddy are.
Are you always with your 2-leggeds or do you sometimes need ‘Time out?’
We love to be with Mommy and Daddy. What’s a time out?
Do your 2 leggeds make you ‘dress up?’ If so, when or what for and do you enjoy it?
Sometimes, but not to much. Usually they make us wear some funny top with numbers on it. It says something like Broncos, but I don’t know why they do that. I don’t know what Broncos are.
Are you photogenic or make them run after you to capture you on film?
I love it when Mommy and Daddy take my picture. Mommy tells me I am beautiful all the time.
Do you have a friendly vet?
I like Dr. Todak. She makes me feel all better when my legs hurt.
What would be your pawfect day?
When Mommy and Daddy give me lots of love and cookies all day.
Finally, in your own words tell us something about both you and your 2 leggeds that the questions haven’t touched on or asked about – something unique …
My mommy sings to me all the time. Mommy and Daddy don’t get mad at us when we slobber and drool all over everything. Even when we slobber them. Also Mommy has a blog called A Jeanne in the Kitchen so it would be great if you popped along to say hello.
Well Lucie and of course you too Vinnie, although you are quite the quiet one and of course your mommy and daddy, l alongside dad want to say thank you to you all for taking pawt in Doodlepip’s Interviews. We interviewed Nicodemus and Otis the other day and they too briefly mentioned you all living together very happily under one roof.
I am not as big as you or your brother lucie, but l am considered a big dog also, and small dogs are not so much frightened of me, but can be quite annoying, they bark like they are big dogs but can run under your tummy and run circles around you very fast! I don’t dislike them, but they can be a little annoying at times!! Rather have a big dog to talk to, you know where you with big dogs.
I think that you all have things very firmly under your control. Mm, Vinnie is not being kind to your babies though, but l guess he just like to play a lot being a younger pup still.. Sorry to read about your sore legs, l also have problems with my own, mummy and dad say it’s my arfrytus or something – whatever that is when it’s home in the kennel – all l know is l creak a bit more than l used to when getting up and lying down again!
However, thank you again for allowing us to step inside your world a little and also for introducing everyone to your Mommy’s blog, which l am sure will be great for her.
Way to go Lucie and Vinnie – Power to the Bark!
Hope you enjoyed reading … Tootle Pip from Doodlepip!
