With all the attention I’ve been getting due to my blog and my modeling on both Marlee’s Instagram and Facebook pages, it’s hard not to get a big head. I know they say, don’t let the fame go to your head, but what if I don’t let it go to my head- what if it just stops at my dashing smile or shoots all the way up to the tips of my ears- does that count?
Anyway, it’s inevitable. I have many adoring fans. After all I’m smart, funny, lovable, and don’t forget handsome, sexy, and debonair. Fame just comes with the territory of being all those things and more. Man, I’m going to have to get myself a body guard soon.
But don’t worry, I’m not one of those celebrities who takes all the compliments and doesn’t give any recognition back in return. In fact, I’ve decided to dedicate this post to my many fans. A little thank you for reading my posts, liking my pictures, and of course commenting on how awesome I am. So here goes my Award winning Oscar speech. Please hold off on the “okay stop talking now” music until I finish.
Karen Lauver: thank you for always reading my posts. We have never met in person (yet), but you still shower on the compliments. Your words make me happy. Yes, Marlee does tell me when you comment on my pictures with an “I love this dog” or “this dog is awesome.” No fear, I love you too. Maybe I can take you out to dinner sometime? Maybe a nice, long walk in the park followed by a fancy dinner of kibble – don’t worry, you can keep me on a short leash.
Charlie Teets: thank you for always liking and commenting on my pictures, even if Marlee didn’t capture my best side. We have never met, but you are definitely someone I can hang out with. Maybe we can catch a Pirate game sometime. As you know by being a faithful follower, I love long car rides and chasing things that fly through the air. We will have a ball- pun intended.
Joyce Clabaugh: you are like my biggest fan. If you’re not commenting on my pictures, you are liking them. You read all my blog posts. I am going to have to dedicate my first best selling novel to you. Thanks for calling me a “handsome rascal.” I definitely agree with the first adjective, but the jury is still out on the rascal part. I can’t wait to see you later today. Don’t worry, there will be lots of slobbery kisses, tail wags, and aggressive hugs.
Doug and Kelly Edwards: thank you for your dedication to my blog. You went out of your way to stop Marlee at the store just to tell her how much you enjoy reading my posts and how you love seeing life through a mutt’s perspective. My goal starting this blog was to make my readers laugh and smile, even through rough days. Thanks for reminding me that even as a dog, I have a voice, and people enjoy hearing it.
Lea McKenzie: you take your love for my blog and me to a whole other level. You share my posts and pictures to encourage people to adopt mutts like me. You are an amazing animal activist, who truly loves and cherishes all of us. Keep doing what you do- you’re awesome, and dogs like me appreciate you. And yes, I appreciate you for more than just reading my blog posts.
And of course I have to thank my Aunt Brandi and my Grandma Patti for always commenting on my pictures, reading my posts, and even going as far as sharing everyone I write with all their friends. I know that you are slightly prejudice, but I still agree with everything you say: I’m the most handsome dog around. And no, I won’t forget you when I reach the highest level of fame.
I know that there are so many more people who flatter me with their kind words and who tell me how they enjoy reading my posts, whether they be wise, humorous, or slightly scatter brained. Thanks, your dedication means the world to me. I wouldn’t be where I am without all of you.
Now you may cue the music.
