Nowzad to the Rescue and Moody Monday

Well finally things are less complicated, don't thank my utterly incompetent Human.. trust me she doesn't deserve thanks just a kick up the.. hmm .. anyway..

I'm sure all previous ramblings about how the donation/prize draw etc etc has been making your brains fry, I know I have needed extra naps to rest mine!!

Well finally someone with plenty of grey matter between the ears (something the human sadly lacks) swooped in and saved the day... none other tha Fizzdog of Nowzaddogs.. (actually Pen the human hero claims he did all the work while Fizzdog slept but because I'm a dog.. and this is MY blog.. and I can do as I wish.. then for the purposes of canine solidarity I will give Fizzdog all the credit!)

So now a snazzy new donation link has been put up on the Nowzad Home Page.. featuring a very handsome dog.. (whaddya mean who?? Me of course!!) Donating using that new button means a guaranteed entry into the grand prize draw and a simplistic way of calculating a total sum raised at the end of all this madness.. cool huh?

So don't worry about e-mailing me if you donate.. just e-mail if you are just pledging an intended donation. I'll keep you all updated as to totals pledged (maybe not in the sidebar though as the human is too stupid to work that out).

Why am I suddenly referring to Mum as the Human? Frankly I'm embarrassed to be related to her today!

now onto my day..and Mum has Monday Moodiness (again!)

Dad and the beans were back to school/work today BOOOOO! I dislike Mondays for that very reason. There was the usual scenes of chaos that every Monday brings.. lost homework, lunch money etc.. Mum saying "Do you want to be late??" a zillion times!
I retreated to the harmony of the bedroom and did my best to ignore them all!

Mum came back from the school run and took me for my walk.. though it was more like an olympic race! It was raining so I was being my usual reluctant self.. Mum had a zillion things to do and was in no mood for my rain aversion tactics so the end result was a mad dash down the usual route and then home.. where i typically FINALLY decided to do my business right outside the open back door.. just to ensure she got a nostril full of its freshness. She didn't seem to appreciate the gesture and her monday moodiness got into full swing!
I ignored her disgusted rants as she did her poop scooping duties and took up position on the sofa for a nice nap.. again, she didn't appreciate that and I was rudely awakened and booted off the furniture!
Now my nap had been interuppted.. so rudely!.. I decided that while she was busy making phone calls and scribbling on bits of paper that I would do a little investigating in the kitchen.. ooohh whats that on the counter top... butter!

yum yum.. ok all done investigating i sloped off for a (hopefully) peaceful nap on the bed.

It didn't last long.. Mum discovered the empty butter carton and immediatley figured it had to be me! (how does she do that??) I then had to look like I was interested and alert while she lectured me for hours (thats how it felt) on the reasons I should not steal butter.. and what she anticipated the end result would be (calm down woman there was only a scraping left in the carton, its not like I ate a barrel full of the stuff!!)

After looking reasonably sorry and offering her all my paws in turn I was excused and got back to napping. Mum disappeared out to get some shopping and pick up the beans and I took up residence on the sofa.. all warnings to not do this had fallen on deaf ears!

She came back in a better mood, and I didn't even get told off when she found several suspect hairy spots on the sofa! Me Dad and the beans have all been fed, watered and walked.. and Monday Moodiness seems to be over... TDIAT! (Thank Dog It's Almost Tuesday)

Patience-please said...

Oooh that's our favorite poop practice, everyone of us! Go for a nice two mile walk and then poop in the yard when we get back!
We figure that's what they want, because if we poop, oh, say, a mile out, she picks it up and brings it home with her anyway.

Hi Ben,
Hey at least your mom only has one moody day..
My mom has Monday Blues, Tuesday Blues, Wednesday Blues AND Thursday Blues... Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays are her good days. :(

Oh yes, shake paws goes a long ways towards soothing upset humans, especially when they're upset with US.

Star & Jack a-roo who loves butter too

The Girl said...

Oh, Ben, what a frustrating day with your mom! She's lucky you even left the house in the rain! Rain is EVIL and will cause dogs to MELT, and in no way would I EVER walk in the rain!

And I say, if a dog lies on the couch in the living room, and no one is there to see, did it even really happen???

Brown dog kisses,
Dannan and The Girl

hi Ben, our mom doesn't like Mondays either cuz she has to get up early and go to work. yeah we get up early too, to make her feel better, but when she leaves we take our naps on the soft and comfy couch.


Tracey and Huffle said...

I find it best to stay out of mum's way when she's in a mood like that.

I think your mom is doing a great job though.

You stole the butter? How?

I have an award for you, Ben!

Pippa said...

Butter is good stuff eh? I don't take it off the counter though, only the wrappers out of the bin.

It is nice on my toast too. And my sandwiches.

Yes, Butter for Ben I bark.


Maggie and Mitch said...

Mitch has that same strange taste for butter! He loves to lick the paper everytime mom unwraps a new stick! I just don't get it!

Love ya lots,

A big hug my friend ARF ARF!

Pedro said...


Yes, I do picture myself as a rebel of sorts. Congratulations on your work here. You deserve an award for doing something so nice for less fortunate dawgies. My mom and I are gonna go visit that web site now.

Hey Ben Boy!

We will be donating to this wonderful cause today! Ben I think you need some type of medal for blogging about this - You are so great to help those poochies less fortunate than ourselves!

Oh and that BT that mom saw at the pet store - it was $1100!! (Maybe 500 - 600 pounds?!)
We thought that was a little steep!
But she sure was pretty though!
Keep up the good work,


Woof Ben

Hey thanks for stopping by. Norman says that if you want to get together and dig some holes just let him know.

Handsome Ben! If your mom hires a dog walker, tell her to check him or her out really well. Mine is great, but some of them are not so great. I'm so lucky!


The Army of Four said...

I used to counter surf, too. Unfortunately, it taught Mom to not leave ANYTHING out. She puts everything away or in the food safe, the appliance formerly known as the microwave. Isn't that sad?

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We won't be able to donate but we'll sure be glad to give you another plug on JFF next week.

T-man Angel said...

Now, I don't see one bit of proof that you were the one who stole the butter! I'd demand a fair investigation!
