Where Were We?

Taxes turned out to be a big distraction. Were we in the middle of a case? Was there a dude named Kelo Printz? Some humans have complicated names. I’m Chet, pure and simple. A human name I like is Suzie Sanchez. She likes Bernie and he likes her – no doubt, I can smell it every time they’re together. Speaking of smells, when Mr. Singh patted me yesterday I caught a whiff through his skin, a whiff that told me things weren’t right inside him. That made me feel bad. I gave him a nice lick and he laughed. A great guy, Mr. Singh. 

Kelo Printz. He’s a Hollywood producer. What is that? No idea. I know Hollywood actors, like Clint Eastwood, for example, one of Bernie’s favorites. “See that, Chet? He lets his walking do the talking.” Bernie thinks Clint Eastwood is a great walker. For a human, maybe, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen humans suddenly topple over. More than two, let’s leave it at that.

    I hope medical science takes advantage of the diagnostic talents of dogs. They can sniff out anything.

    Chet…how did you get your name? Who named you before Bernie came along? Do you remember having litter mates as a puppy?

    I am trying to rename a 2-year old dog I got from the shelter. Her name is Sadie and I already have a dog called Lady so everyone is confused. So far it is not working.

    My first memories are in this horrible crack house. I don't think they even had a name for me. Bernie must have given me the name Chet but I don't remember. Bernie says to give the new guy a name that's a lot different than Sadie – like Red, for example – and then use it a lot. With plenty of treats!

    Does it really matter? Lady (and the new dog) will come whether C. Harris calls Sadie or Red….especially if treats are involved. How could treats be given to one and not the other?

    Dogs can count!

    Thanks for the tip, Chet. I was trying to provide a new name that began with S so I think that is where I made my mistake.

    re "Dogs can count!"….isn't that the truth. They also know whether one dog is getting a treat that is a bigger size than the other. {{{{sigh}}}} But wagging tails make it all worth while.

    I've always had two dogs over these last 25 years so they can have company while I'm working but one died last January. This new pairing is not working even after several weeks (a first for me) due to jealousy on both parts. The new one does not want to be dog #2. I am signing up for dog training as soon as the snow melts (another month up here in the arctic)…not so much for the dogs' benefit but for me!!!

    Well, they're both lady-dogs…. that's probably why.

    There's this guy with a show on NatGeo called the Dog Whisperer. His name's Cesar Milan, and he's wonderful. He can fix any dog-related problem– jealousy is usually a pretty quick fix for him. Checkout his website, C.Harris, and see if any of the clips or suggestions help you. If I weren't allergic to dogs, I'd have a pack because of him. (I used to have dogs and cats both. Now we're strictly a feline house.)

    Good luck. Chet, tell Bernie I love his naming advice!
