Charlie: I love donuts!

Charlie donuts

I LOVE Donuts!   Have you guys ever tried them?

Here I am in one of my favorite napping spots on the love seat on my sherpa fleece blankie with my blueberry donut.

I just got this new flavor.  It’s quite delish and squeaky and fun!  These donuts can be found in a multitude of places throughout my home and yard.  Aren’t I the lucky one!?!!?!

I have already had two chocolate and one cherry donut, and I would really, really, Really, REALLY love this glazed one!  HINT HINT – will you please tell my Mom?  (or maybe our friends at ZippyPaws will see this and send me one for sharing the love!)  Paws crossed!!!

One of my favorite things in the entire world to do is play.  Play follows closely behind my other favorite things in the whole wide world: breakfast and dinner and walks.

Here are my favorite things to do with a donut:

  • Grab it first thing in the morning (after breakfast of course), and squeak it around the house to make sure everyone wakes up.  After all, it is a new day – an opportunity to play.
  • Bring it to my Mom and push it up against her leg while squeaking it so she will throw it and play fetch – especially when she is on conference calls for work.
  •  Bring it to Mom or Dad or Nick, but as soon as they bend down to grab it to “play fetch,” run away quickly to make them chase me.  It is also important to give a playful GRRRRRowl when I buzz past them – just to let them know who has it!
  • Carry it around with my nose sticking out of the hole and the top covering my eyes – just to show I can maneuver quite fine even when I can’t see where I am going.
  • Take it out the doggy door into the rain and snow so it gets nice and smelly and wet and even more delicious, and then bring it inside and lay on Mom and Dad’s bed with it under my chin.
  • Play tug with Mom or Dad or Nick until the say “Drop It!” (which they always say quite firmly and authoritative…) Dang!   Then I really have to let it go – because that is what a dog is supposed to do – right?
  • Chew on it and make it squeak at least 27,569 times (give or take) until you can break a tiny hole into it and rip it apart – destroy the squeaker and show it who is boss!
  • Sleep with it to assure nobody else gets it!

Donuts are wonderful!

I did, however, see and smell something different in the house the other day…..

IMG_8899My family was eating these donut-like things called  Paczki (pronounced punch-key – WHAAAT???!!) in honor of Fat Tuesday.  Sheesh  – any excuse for a sweet in this house!  Hey – they didn’t share…..  I wonder if they tasted as good as my donuts……?

  1. LOL! I think your donuts sound a lot more fun than what your family had! But yes they should have shared 🙂 Just go squeak your donut 30,000 times and maybe they will share then! Have a good day and thanks for making me smile!

  4. Charlie, you remind me of my Lucy when she was young! Keep enjoying your donuts! As for those Fat Tuesday treats, I bet you will get to taste one eventually. According to Lucy, all you have to do is bide your time, pretend to be totally uninterested in them, and when your mom or dad accidentally leaves one within reach, make your move, fast! Then run under the couch to eat it so no one will see or be able to take it away from you. Just don’t tell your mom I told you all this, okay?

    • thanks for these tips ms ann! Lucy is very brilliant! Is she pretty too?! wink wink! I have a really hard time acting uninterested…. does that become easier with age?? I am just so very eager…. I will try very hard though – and mum’s the word – your secret is safe with me – no telling Mom! 🙂 love, charlie

      • Lucy says to tell you she is both brilliant and pretty! And don’t worry, acting gets easier with age! Just call Lucy if you need some tips, she will be happy to help, because she thinks you are pretty cute!

      • good to know! I’ll try very hard to be patient and learn better acting skills. And I am blushing if you could see me now. I feel like Rudolph when Clarice tells him he is CUUUUUUTTTTEEE and he then can fly! Thank you Lucy! love, charlie
