Hi, Thanks, and Some Notes About Napping

Thanks for all the kind notes about My Song. For the record, my Dad did it extemporaneously (hey, I’m half poodle – I know big words like that). All his ‘Poodle Blues’ songs are done ‘in the moment’ – and they are never the same. Ever. So you actually got a piece of history there. That music will never happen like that again. And don’t worry – he doesn’t usually play in public in his underwear – this was all very impromptu. But he has taken the clothing comments to heart. Not that that doesn’t mean that he won’t play in his underwear again. Mom probably just won’t film it. Or at least she probably won’t post it.

Anyway, he promises that in 2 years he’ll be back to his professional level of playing. (Dad wants me to add the link to his real music: Gary Dranow and the Manic Emotions so that you know that he does more than just play poorly recorded songs in his underwear (my favorite song is ‘Mellow Drama’ – it really fits Dad to a ‘t’).

And he wants me to add that he didn’t authorize the publication of the video! I guess that means Mom’s in the dog house. If we had a dog house, that is.)

Anyhoo, enough about Dad. I like his playing. Especially when he sings songs about me. Or TaiChi. Or even Bufus. (Those are the Bufus Blues, BTW.)

It’s been raining here the last couple of afternoon, and I gotta tell ya. I’m not super excited about thunder. Lighting is okay.

But thunder? Not so much. I don’t go hide under the covers or anything, but I bark. Because if Mother Nature is going to make noise, I get to make noise, too, right?

Yeah, I though so, too.

So I’ve been barking a lot lately.

Which makes me tired.

So yesterday afternoon, I had serious nap-time with TaiChi.

She’s my napping buddy! At 17 years old, she’s had A LOT of experience in napping, and I’m learning a lot from her! And see how well we fit together?

The other person I’m studying to learn how to be a Grade A napper? Mr. Bufus. He is a professional level napper, with over 19 years of experience, and I can only HOPE to be as good a napper as he is.

C’mon. Is that not impressive? I am in awe. Total awe.

And now, I’m tired.

TaiChi makes the best pillow, really.

*kissey face* *yawn*


PS. Hi to all my new friends!!! I went to Mango’s bloggy to meet some other blogging beasties, and have met some really cool people. I can’t wait to read more about all of you!

Hello- you are very very cute and you must be so intelligent with your long words. Mummy says I am not a long words kind of dog- what do you think she means. Pop over and see me sometimes- I like to nap too but only in comfy places like on the bed or cuoch or the heated bblowing hole on the floor.

I know a lot about focused meditations. They are quite restorative.
