State of the Frida

Since tonight is the State of the Union, I thought it would be appropriate to give the “State of the Frida.” Since I have posted my manifesto, my friends, things have been going well for the most part. Sure there have been detractors, as you can see by the doctored photos from my last post, but there will always be enemies of freedom. Which is why, like Bill O’Reilly is publishing the names of anti-patriotic liberals, I will continue to publish the names of anti-dog, cat lovers. Another way to defend liberty is to support my proposed “Watchdog Act”–such very important tool for law enforcement in this post 9/11 world. Some say the Watchdog Act would remove Americans’ civil liberties. To those skeptics, I say, those were gone long ago! The only true protection against terrier-ism…er, terrorism, is man’s best friend! Have we not for centuries protected you from various intruders in your home by barking? Barking is basically an audio version of the color-coded terrorism alert system! (For those unfamiliar: 1 bark = someone pulled into the driveway; 2 barks = someone's knocking at the door; 3 barks + 1 growl = there's someone new in the house that I'm unfamiliar with; repeated growls = that new person is a male, perhaps of large size; continuous barks and intermittent growls = full scale panic! evacuate!) In conclusion, God bless the Fridas of this world, and all the four legged creatures that make this nation great (but not the cats).

I'm Being Swift-Boated!!

Ever since I announced my revolution, there have been people who want to undermine my legitimacy! Here's an example...I've never even met John Kerry or Jane Fonda, and yet this photo has surfaced by a group called "Swift Dogs Sniff for the Truth" that shows me on John Kerry's lap. I'm so outraged at these lies, but first I must nap to get the strength to fend off my attackers. I will be issuing a statement soon.

And now for something completely different…

Tiempo revolución!
(Revolution time!)

I am posting my first manifesto here. I probably should think more about my demands and be less hasty in committing them to paper, but here goes. My Dad Eric is helping with the organizing of the movement. He’s getting the image above printed on T-shirts and postage stamps from zazzle.com. Contact him if you want some. And since I’m just a dog, I need help coming up with a catchy name for my movement…leave a comment and let me know what you think might be good.

Here’s what I’ve got so far:

More meat in dinner bowls, and less crunchies!
Longer walks, even when it’s freezing cold outside!
Fluffier, squeakier chew toys, and the option to rip out the stuffing if desired!
REAL pig ears, not vegetarian ones!
Playtime with friends (other dogs and cats and animals) at least once a month!
Rides in the car at regular intervals with good views of the outside world!

I've learned from Dad Mike that one person can make a difference and change the world in small and big ways. So why not a dog?
Viva la Frida!

Here is a lazy Sunday with Dad. I think he's doing crossword puzzles. That little wordsmith loves 'em. I am getting ready to nap. Next week, I promise to have something more exciting. I'm working on a new project. Everyone have a good weekend.

Morning Coffee

Here's pretty much of the last pics of Dad Mike and me lounging around on Christmas morning enjoying coffee and slowly waking up. Emphasis on the slowly. Thank goodness for caffeine. Don't you just love how we mirror each other in these pictures I've been posting?

Look how coy I am in this picture of Dad trying to kiss me. Those Dads are always giving me lovin'. But could YOU resist too?? But just wait until tomorrow... Tomorrow's pic I'll post is even better!

Hey, things have warmed up a bit and the snow melts on and off again. Which means that I can see my yard once again! Although sometimes it gets all mushy and muddy, which is not good for a white dog! But I love my yard!

Arty shots

Here are some more coat shots that were taken with Dad's new toy camera!

Matching Winter Coats!

As you know, it can get pretty cold and snowy here in Erie. Everyone says it has something to do with the Lake. But I'm just a dog, I don't know what that means. All I know is it can get pretty cold on walks, but I still like to bite the piles of snow for some reason. So here is my other dad and me and I'm wearing the winter coat my grandma got me for Xmas. I think we match quite nicely.

Oh, crabs!

By popular request, a picture of me playing with my stuffed crab. (mmm, sounds like a good dinner, stuffed crab. Or, something terribly, terribly inappropriate [insert your own joke here]...) Anyway, if you think the crab is a riot, you should see the stuffed hedgehog! It makes me go bezerk!

Happy New Year!

There's lots to post now that I am back in 2006! First up is a pic of Dad Mike and me. Like father, like daughter, huh? So my dads spent all sorts of play time with me while they were off from work over the holidays. It was great! And on Xmas day I got spoiled pretty good. I got several plush toys: a crab, a soccer ball, and a hedgehog from my grandma. I also got treats! Pupperoni and veggie pig ears. yum! I hope everyone had a good end of 2005 and here's to a brand new year...
