Doggie Interview

Sundance got tagged for an interview meme by Batcat, over at Life, Work, and Pleasure. Since I'm busy today, whining about not having a toilet, I figured I'll let him at it...

1. Do you think you’re hot? Dude. I’m cool.

2. Upload a favorite picture of you. Why do you like this picture? Most of the pictures of me make everyone say, “Awwww, he’s so cute!” Sometimes I just don’t want to be cute, you know? This one’s got some ‘tude.

3. When was the last time you ate pizza? About 2 weeks ago. Man, I love me some pizza. Usually I only get a little crust, but Ryan, the 2-legged kid in the house, can sometimes be pretty careless with her food, especially on the weekends, when she can watch TV while she eats. She usually sits on the floor and leaves her food beside her (and she totally doesn't pay attention). Mom always says, “If it’s on the floor, it’s in Sundance territory,” so I don’t feel too bad when I snitch a bite (or a whole piece of pizza) here and there. She really ought to be more careful, don’t you think?

4. What was the last song you listened to? 'London Bridge is Falling Down', played by the 2-legged kid on the recorder, in the car on the way to school this morning. Of course, I was lying on the backseat with my paws over my ears, whining to myself and Mom was making this strange, choking-gurgling-crying sound, so I didn’t hear too much. I’ve really got to put that awful thing on my list of stuff to chew.

5. What are you doing now? Kicking back beside Mom on the couch. Yeah, I’m not supposed to be up here but Mom’s been a little distracted with all the digging going on in the front yard and the weird smells coming up out of the basement, so I’m gettin’ away with some stuff. Cool.

6. What name would you prefer besides Sundance? Well, I don’t really get called Sundance all that often (and I don't mind all that much, as I always sort of thought it was little on the frou-frouey side). Most of the time I’m Sunny or Bubby (don’t ask). But to tell the truth (and don’t repeat this, OK?), I sort of like it when Mom calls me Sweet-faced Boy. Yeah, I know it’s so not cool, but when she says it, she usually pinches my cheeks and kisses my head and gives me a big, long hug. You really can’t beat that lovey-dovey stuff, let me tell you.

7. What’s your favorite thing to do? Well, I like hanging out at the park every morning with my Mom, chasing ducks (not the geese, though… those buggers are mean!) and playing with my friend Riley. But I think my most favorite thing to do is go swimming with my cousins Ben and Hunter at their pool. I didn’t like to swim at first, but once Mom got me in the water and showed me I wasn’t going to drown, it was cool. Now I like to get in water wherever I am but I get yelled at for that… something about how I’m going to stink when I’m wet. Yeah, I have no idea either.

8. Where do you sleep? On the bed. Duh. Where do you sleep?

9. Do you have a favorite toy? Totally. My tug-of-war rope. I used to be able to pull the 2-legged kid around the room when she was hanging on to it. But she got big. Now I just try to pull Mom off the couch. It’s way cool.

10. Are there any other animals at your house?
Hell no. This is my house. The 2-legged kid is as close to another animal as we’re gonna get.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww - cute idea. And seriously? Sundance isn't a frou-frouey name. It's very manly. Or ... um ... dogly as the case may be.

Loved Sunny's answer to #5. Whole post is very cute and very funny. Sorry to hear you had such a miserable weekend, though. Awful... awful. A sewer break destroyed the whole lower level of our house once... an apartment. It was not pretty. This, too, shall pass.

I wanna do this meme so bad!

Stu Pidasso said...

A dog and it's girl......or something like that. If it weren't for kids, I think a lot of pets would be a lot skinnier. Pizza by the slice would be a good grab for my dog. He is always on the prowl!

Michelle said...

Great interview Sundance!!!

Thanks dude!!

Summer said...

I love the dogs picture!!!

A Woman Of No Importance said...

Sundance, that was the funniest thing I've ever read from the paws of a pooch!

The scene of you and Mommy in the car was fantastic. And Ryan is already up to "London Bridge" - she is a child prodigy, no less!

Thankyou, Sundance, and tell your mom I'm thinking of her amid all that chaos, and hoping it's all over soon, and you're back to natural, wet-dog, luvviness smells again! x

Amy McMean a.k.a McSunshine said...

Wow sundance is very impressive. I love the "tude" photo. He looks tough.

Lee said...

Have you considered eating the recorder? Not as tasty as pizza, I guess.

Ronda's Rants said...

So cute...I have two really cute girls over here that you may like to meet...Riley and Miley...that like cheese and they are convinced it falls from heaven!

Heather said...

CUTE! I might steal this for Toby... let me know if you have a problem with that. :)
Sunny sounds like a pretty sweet dog. Maybe he could teach Toby a few things...settle his butt down a bit?

Protege said...

Ah Diane, this was a great read! Love your variation.;)))
Sweet-faced Boy is truly cool!
Thanks for playing along.;)
Batcat sends his regards.:)

Missy said...

Great job, Sundance! Roxi can't read, but enjoyed me reading it for her! LOL

hebba said...

blognut said...

Sundance, Dude, how do you type?

Michelle said...

I have three animals and I really wish they would all run away. :)

hautepocket said...

Sundance...don't tell your mom, but I'll totally share this case of beer with you. But seriously, don't tell.

mo.stoneskin said...

He is astonishingly eloquent and self aware, I tried the same interview with my hamster it just wound him up and he bit me.

Braja said...

Uh oh...a dog post when Henry is on holiday??! Better bookmark this one for him :))

Stu Pidasso said...

Sundance, I'll keep you posted on the "over the fence" excursion through Texas. When we get ready to bolt the yards and ditch these recorder playing goofballs (mine saws on this "jello" thing and it sounds like they are torturing cats....yahoo!!!!), we'll have to water load real well and make a break for it. DOn't forget to pack an extra flea collar and a bne for a snack.

Cheers, Brutus the Texas cowdog

That picture of him with the Smirnoff reminds me of when Monster was just a tiny kitten and Sissy lived with me and SMOKED. Monster loved the cigarette butts and would take them out of the ashtray and walk around with one in her mouth a lot. Like she was some hood that hung out on the corner. Between Sundance's drinking and Monster's smoking, we had/have some tuff animals!

sherri said...

Your pooch is adorable. And sassy.

And he drinks? From the bottle. Amazing.

I LINKED you up in my post today. FINALLY I mastered it. (it really was easy, I don't know why it took me so long).

Andy said...

Bubby (ha!) might have a drinking problem

namaste said...

Jenners said...
