Pleased to Sniff You

Hi there!  My name is Dooley and I turned one on 1/1/17 (or so the shelter director said.)  Even though I may seem “wet behind the ears”, I’ve had a lot of life   experience.  I spent two months in a shelter, which wasn’t so bad but unbeknownst to the staff, I was bullied by an aging Pomeranian (bitch!) and terrorized every time we passed the Cat Quarters. But it was clean, dry and we got two squares a day.

I’m of mixed heritage and if I have to hear my personal assistant, Ermigal, tell one more stranger we encounter on a walk, ” he’s mostly min-pin but he must have some Chihuahua–look at those ears!”, I’ll have to chew up that Coach purse of hers. It looks delicious.

But I digress. Where was I?  Oh, yes–back to my assistant, Ermigal.  Due to an unfortunate mental breakdown brought about by the catastrophic human political events of November 9th, 2016, she was rendered incapable of forming coherent sentences much less writing an entire blog. As a K-9 observer without, dare I say, a dog in this hunt, I feel an obligation to help you humans sort through this mess you’ve got yourselves in.

I like to think of these political issues as big, juicy bones.Every now and then, I’m going to throw a bone out there for us to chew on (discuss.)

In fact, you can think of it as a BYOB party–bring your own bone. We can chew on them together!

I’m happy to provide this service; let’s face it, this won’t be the first time humans have needed a dog to lead them out of the wilderness.

    • Hi Kelly! Glad you liked Dooley’s new venture. Actually, he has a ghost writer, Helen Highwater, and I am still trying to launch my personal “light and fluffy” blog. Thanks for the encouragement, dear friend!


  1. Hi Dooley!
    Pleased to meet you. I have to say, that Pomeranian looks like a piece of work. It’s a good thing you got out of there when you did. It’s very generous of you to open your heart and bone collection to your personal assistant, Ermigal. November 9, 2016 was a difficult day for many of us. I look forward to chewing a bone with you 🍖.

    • Good morning, jb. Great, another bone aficionado! My supply is getting low and Ermigal keeps getting the cheap rawhide ones from Walmart. I’d give anything for some real ones from the butcher…your suggestions? Thanks–Dooley


    • Hey Linda! That was an occupation I desperately wanted to pursue but Ermigal felt I was too “hyper.” How about giving me a chance?!? That’s a bone I’ll be picking with her for a long time. Best, Dooley.


    • Hello Jim, Thanks for the opportunity to clarify authorship once more (Ermigal, my personal assistant, was confused, as usual). This blog is my production, with some help from Helen H.,my proofreader. Ermigal is still in the “talking” stage of getting her latest blog into the world. Don’t hold your breath.
      Yours truly, Dooley (hey, I’m a poet!)
