Fido and Me – Fortune Cookie

January 6, 2012

Fido is having the time of his life.

Every day is the finest time of his life, if you ask me, but even I would admit that this day ranks right up there.

He is reading his fortunes.

“Dog who pee on dog gets a leg up on the competition,” he intoned. Waiting a comedic moment, he then howled in glee.

Fido had received a box of dog fortune cookies in the mail. Who from? He doesn’t know. An admirer. But right there on the Chinese takeout box, was the label, “Kung Fu Fido,” made somewhere in Minnesota.

Fido and Me – Dog Songs

December 16, 2011

Fido is shopping.

“The trick,” he said, “is to find gifts that dogs themselves dig, rather than humans. Get it? Digging dogs?”

Fido paused to lick his, um, belly. He lay near the table, dictating to me as I worked the Web on his behalf. His legs are as nimble as fence posts, and his paws just can’t work a keyboard.

“You have an actual strategy?” I asked.

“Why, yes,” he said.

“I get it. You are a very clever dog, my good man.” I gave him a pat and a scratch.

Fido closed his eyes halfway. He was in thought.

Fido and Me – Passing gas

December 9, 2011

Fido does not pass gas.

“It’s an untoward behavior,” he said the other night. We lay in bed, ready for a long winter’s nap. “It’s no more acceptable than it is in humans.”

“It’s a good thing you think like that,” I said. “Otherwise you’d be outside.”

We had just finished reading the long, long, l-o-n-g New York Times article about purebred dogs, especially bulldogs.

“Inveterate farters,” said Fido. “It’s why I didn’t mind that the Georgia Bulldogs didn’t win. Not even the Superdome would be able to mitigate their behavior.”
