Ah, my life.
The life of me – Dooley Bear – Celebrity dog extraordinaire – living in paradise in San Pedro, Belize.
Just today my people took me for a boat ride and these two really friendly people floated by on a kayak yelling out:
“Is that Dooley Bear?!?
We follow your blog!”
It was my first official “celebrity sighting” but you know it won’t be the last.
Speaking of my celebrity status, did you know I made it on the cover of the San Pedro Sun?
But that’s old news….what’s my island life been like in November?
Lots and lots of boat rides!
And fishing trips….remember how when I was new to the island and I said this: I LOVE SARDINES!
I was SOOOOO wrong!
I have now discovered tuna….not that Chicken of the Sea crap out of a can that Ronnie eats….but a real fish, pulled right out of the water by Ronnie……and when he filets it and gives me the scraps?
Pure doggie heaven!
T is for TUNA it’s good enough for me!
Lisa’s parents and brother came down for a visit – which I LOVE!
I get extra attention, extra walks and booty!
Check out my bag of bacon! (and no, I am NOT sharing!)
Lee brought me this super cool bed too! (no really, it’s cool on my belly which I love!)
On one of our boat rides we just went out and floated in the water! Lisa made me a pillow because I was tired of holding my head up…….the struggle is real people!
My super cool Canadian friends Mark and Kathy came to the island for a visit too! I love stopping in at their house because they always have it cold inside and they give me a giant bowl of water!
They even took me to this cool new spot for lunch…The Tuck Stop!
This is me posing as Tucker….I was hiding out from the paparazzi.
So, all of this really great stuff is going on in my life…but there is one strange thing I just can’t figure out……
Every Sunday my people turn the TV on and sit on the couch…and then they proceed to yell at the TV…for hours and hours! (seems more like months to me!)
I have no idea what they are watching – must be some show about animals because I hear them yell about animals a lot….
They yell: “Go Panthers!!” and “Oh No!”….”Come on Panthers!”……
I never realized that my people like Panthers that much…
They mostly watch the animal show about Panthers but sometimes I hear them watching other animal shows about Bears and Cardinals and Broncos. All I can tell is that they seem to really prefer the Panthers over the other animals.
If you can’t beat em (I mean sleep) join em!
After like 5 bottles of wine on some day where they gave me lots and lots of turkey they said this: “If the Panthers make it to the SuperBowl…we are so going!”…..I sure hope the SuperBowl is a giant bowl of tuna and that they bring me along too!
Christmas is just around the corner…and Heather who is one of my very best friends and takes such great care of me when I stay at Pampered Paws…(who I just love so very much) told me she was making me something special….something just for me!
I was really hoping it was a cookie……but it wasn’t. Instead if was this amazing life-like replica of me….immortalized into an ornament!
It’s so very cool……
But I still wish I could eat it.
I love my life….how could it get any better!
Oh wait…..I forgot to mention this picture……again – really?
Why do my people do this to me every year? It really is pretty embarrassing being the Dooley Bear.
I hope all of my fans…..um….I mean friends and family have the best Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus or whatever else is out there that I am not aware of that you celebrate….because happiness and celebrations are what life is all about!
One last picture to close out my tail…..me and my best island friends….all decked out in our holiday flair last year…….
I don’t know what all you humans keep arguing about…….big or small, I’ll play with them all!
Merry merry Christmas!!!!
