The Letter T

The Letter Game looked like a fun game to play so I asked Lady Kaos for a letter and she gave me the letter T

So now I have to list ten things I Love that start with the letter T.. so here goes..

1. The Beans

See how happy I am when I am with them?? Oh how I LOVE my Beans. They love me, play with me, bake me treats, snuggle with me on the couch, bed, floor.. just about anywhere! They sing to me, play hide and seek with me and just make my world a VERY happy place!

2. Time for napping with the Secretary (AKA Mum)

Oh I know I moan about her, but Nap Times with Mum are the BEST!! She squeezes into the tiny space I leave for her on the couch and snuggles right in, It's like having my own personal hot water bottle.. and she doesn't snore!!

3. Trucks..

well more specifically Landys.. especially MINE!! I don't care who claims ownership.. the keyword here is MINE!!

4. Trial Bikes

Whats not to love?? Even though Dad and the Bean won't let me ride theirs I still love them because I get to chase Dad and the Bean all over the woods and there is mud and critters to seek out and sniff and hills to run up and down and, more often than not, the day involves Mum falling down a hill into a big pile of mud (in her capacity of photographer she doesn't actually share our love of bikes!!) and spouting expletives whilst getting laughed at! .. makes for a fun day out all round!

5. Tennis Balls

Of the several thousand I have not one is in a state that is recognisable as a tennis ball.. due to me chewing them within an inch of their life!! They also provide the added entertainment of regularly sending Mum into a heap on the floor, everyone else in the house can see them and avoid stepping on them.. Mum is "Tennis Ball Blind" so leaving them at the top of the stairs or some equally perilous place is very entertaining!

6. Toast

I'm just gonna say YUM! no further explanation should be necessary on this one!

7. T Towels

These are multi functional fun towels.. or T-Towels as they are more commonly known as in my part of the world.. they are great for a game of tug of war.. even better if they happen to be draped over Mum's shoulder at the time.. "Why are you on the floor again Mum??"

8. Treats

Who doesn't love Treats! I especially love the yummys that Mum and the Beans homebake for me.

9. Teeth

I love my fearsome Teeth! They are especially good for convincing Mum to have a nap with me!

and last but most certainly not least I love..

10. Tanner

He may well be a Doofus (What?? Joey said it!!) but I love him anyway, he makes me howl with laughter! Of course we love Joey and ALL of you guys and gals too... but Tanner has the advantage of his name starting with a T!

If any of you would like a letter so you can play the Letter game just let me know!

That was fun!!

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Very good Ben. Mom had to laugh about your Mom being blind to the balls and ,well,kerplunking down from sliding on them!! Bwaahahahaha.

Jacks, Narra, Tuchuck, and Rousseau said...

Awesome! Ben, we love your T's! We heartily concur!!!


Gucci said...

Yeahhh Bennie, I looove naps with my Mom too. She always says, "good thing you're so cute Gucci, otherwise I'd kick you off the bed for stealing my covers!!"

Hehehehe. ;]


Lady Kaos said...

Your answers are great!! You poor Mom sure ends up on the ground a lot. Your Beans sound really cool, I need to get me some!

Raising Addie said...

What a fun list!!!

I loved learning more about our favorite Rotti!


Orable and Charlie said...

Those are some great T words, though I kind of forgot what else there was after the toast and treats! Have a great day

licks & slobbers

Charlie Daniels said...

Great list Ben,

Yep I have to agree with you on the T for Tennis Ball ;-)



Joe Stains said...

Now you've done it, Tanner wants a letter. Oh dear, this should be interesting. Mom's family called kitchen towels T-Towels too, strange, nobody else here does.

Those treats look AMAZZZIIINNNGGGG.

Silka said...

No my little sister doesn't get to dress up - she says she doesn't want to either (silly kitty). But she has to go to the vet on Halloween to get fixed. Which is probably a really good idea, there are so many homeless cats around here we don't need to make more.

You're T's are pretty good things to love, especially The Beans, what a good nickname.

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

That seems like lots of fun. Yeah, we love Tanner too. He is so much fun.

Aggie said...

Hi Ben,

Thanks for checking out the blog. You are a sweet looking Rotty. I will tell you I am kind of scared of your kind. One time I was attack from behind from a Rotty. But I am sure we can be friends.

(NOTE FROM MOM: Aggie was not "attacked" from behind, just a little suprised, followed by a small chase)

Sloppy Licks,


Moco said...

What great use of your letter. (T)ell your mom to get up off the floor.

The Army of Four said...

That "time to nap" with your mom one was sooooooooooooo wonderful! My mom thinks you look so cuddly and smooch--HEY! Wait a minute!!! You're allowed on the COUCH!?!? Oh, wooooo, what I wouldn't give to snuggle up with my mom (or yours) on the couch. I'm so abused here......

The Army of Four said...

Hi handsome Ben! Dave was so depressed about the whole "not allowed on the couch" thing that he forgot to tell you we'd love to do a letter!
PS: I LOVE the picture of your with "The Beans"!!!

Thor said...

Great answers, Ben! I agree to you about The Beans and Tennis balls.

Love and licks

3Hounds said...

Hey Ben, Sid here.

We love your T list:)
Chloe's favourite would be toast and treats, Miya's would be the tennis ball but I just love your little beans. Our little beans are all growed up now so I have to meet them outside where I wag my tail and let them fuss me ;)

Woofs from us all

Marvin said...

I like your happy smile!

Pleased to meet you btw!

Lady Kaos said...

Hey Ben, thanks for trying to warn us about Marvin's post. We got the email, too and read it and then went to psot it and thankfully you beat us to it because I think Mom would have had a hard time posting it, too. We miss Marvin and his poetry a lot. We can't even bring ourselves to delete his link on my site even though it doesn't go anywhere!
Mom is going to buy a case of kleenex this weekend!

T-man's mom said...

I love the contented look and smile you wear when you're with your family. I can just tell how happy you are in your home. You're really a lucky pup, and I think you know it!!

Those are a great list of T's!! You know which "T" would be at the top of my list ;) CC-man's too, though he wouldn't admit it!
