Tuesdays Tails. . .


Okay grandma said to tell you that she had a busy weekend.  My boy was confirmed in the church and my uncle came in from Ohio to be there.  So she is kind of behind - as usual.

Speaking of my uncle - now what is an uncle?  I found out he is someone I think I should not bark at.  I don't get it.  I thought my job was to bark at strangers that entered the house.  They kept saying the No, No, NO - DON'T BARK - whatever that means. I just knew they weren't to happy with me.

I just knew he didn't really belong there and I was trying to warn them there was a stranger in the house.  I was so tired after two days  of being on constant alert I had to just give a low growl when he walked by.  To tell the truth - he did rub my tummy so I didn't bite him even thought he didn't know that - hee-hee.  I'm rotten.

Now grandma wanted to show off so I have to share this post.  She made this - with my help of course - for her 2 year grandson that lives with this uncle guy.




I thought she made this UGA blanket for me - but she made it for my boy.  Which is okay because he shares with me.  It is UGA on one side and dog prints on the other - maybe that is my side?




No, old granny wouldn't leave me out now would she?  Wink Wink.

TOLD YAH!  I'M SPOILED!  I think it is because I barked and watched the house so good last weekend that she was rewarding me!



THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:



PS - Grandma is having a little trouble with her emails - she is sending one out and then it comes back as unable to deliver - She is writing back!

Oh, Disco, you always bring a smile to my face! You are not spoiled, just greatly loved.

Jackie said...

You go, Disco!!
Hugs,

It's always good to see the doggy side of things. So glad you didn't bite your uncle and tell grandma that she does wonderful work. I like to think that there is time for everything that we want to do and it looks like she makes time for her precious people there. Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!

Beth said...

Disco, you are sweet and not spoiled at all. :-)

Tricia said...

My son and his new wife moved in with us and brought their big lab/beagle (just until they can close on their house). We have two JR's and a cat. Everybody barks, everybody runs, everybody chases when somebody runs - then the grandson comes over and he is the only smart one. He learned to crawl with his head down so he won't get licked in the face. How calm my life would be without the four legged friends. :)

Cheri said...

I agree with Shelly, you are loved...not spoiled. And by "dog rights" you should have your very own blanket...after all, you do protect the house. Love ya Disco.

Cranberry Morning said...

Sweet photos! And I love the poster, 'Pick Your Battles' :-D

Spoiled means giving in or rewarding you when you're naughty; being kind to you doesn't mean you're being spoiled. Same applies to kids.

Jim said...

Disco is a good dog. I know she really does like that blanket with Mickey's picture.

She could write in her own Blogger Name. Adi had her own but got too bad with Arthritis before I got her started good. She wrote her own meme (linked on the side bar of my blog--her profile is ther too)
..

Betsy Adams said...

Disco--you really are spoiled. Tell Mom that I love the blanket --except that it should be the Tennessee Volunteers instead of the Georgia Bulldogs.... ha ha

Glad your 'uncle' came home for the weekend. It was a GREAT day for Grandson. Congrats to him.

Hugs,
Betsy

Sr. Ann Marie Slavin said...

Congratulations to your grandson on his confirmation! And a pat for that cute dog for me--even though I'm afraid of dogs!

Renae at simple sequins said...

Hi Disco! Cute little story today. Thank you. Last week I wrote to Grandma when I should have been writing to you. Sorry about that!

I love your new blanket and my dog Duchess does the same thing when my 'family' comes to my house. If she doesn't know them then she barks and barks until I say "no no bark, they are our friends!" She understands "friends" and she also understands NO, cuz if she doesn't she gets a spank on the behind!!! youch! huh?

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

It was so good see "see" you today, Disco!

LF said...

My Mom was having the same problem with her computer. I ended up changing her e-mail password. It seemed to help. From what I have read it is all part of a virus that is going around. Check your sent messages too. You may find that your computer has been sending messages that appear to be from you to everyone in your contact list. If you need more help, let me know. I have a few other things you may have to do to fix the problem. Hope this helps! :)

Oh yea, I love the blankets and the dog of course!! Nothing wrong with spoiling them!!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Great job on the blankets. An excellent quote choice too Disco.

A Quiet Corner said...

Good dog...strong and brave, barking and growling...you must have exhausted...THAT's why you got a blanket of your own, dummy!...:)JP

Sharon said...

Oh Disco - you always bring a smile to my face. I don't blame you for barking at this *uncle* guy. It's good to have a watch dog around the house...(This is Marty: "Good job, buddy. I just lick people to death!"

Love that blanket. Your grandma is one talented lady. (Don't tell her, though - it might go to her head).

Congrats to your boy and his confirmation - very excited about that.

xo

(p.s. Could you ask Grandma if I could copy that picture and saying with the dogprint on it - at the beginning of your post? I love that, and would like to add it to my sidebar).

Gloria Hood said...

My Mom told me us pups are suppose to be spoiled! Sometimes she ties this little green blanky around my neck, and I run around the house. Maybe I will learn to fly with it, BOL! Your blanket is just bootiful!
Lovies, Miss Mindy

TexWisGirl said...

very nice blankets! love the pup prints. :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Disco I know you are such a good dog and you bark to warn them of stranger danger! Now the Uncle is family so no more barking OK??? Love the blankets! Tell Grandma Sandie she did a great job!
hugs,
Linda

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Nice blankets!! Know you're proud of the Grandboy!!
Love that photo of the little dog in the big bed and big dog in the little bed!!

andy said...

What a great dog !! Hope your having a great start to your week

Debbie said...

I'm so happy for you and your grandson with his confirmation. It's such a special and important time, and I'm so glad your son got to come for it too, no matter what Sir Disco Dog had to say about it.

And I really love the blankets. I have wanted to make one like that for the longest time. I guess I'll finally get around to trying when I have a grandchild of my own.

Sandra said...

love the pics and when we first got Jake he thought his name was No No Jake
when mail comes back it is either because that persons email address is full or the address is wrong, or they closed that address.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Love the blankets and what a special day for your boy, Disco. I know it was even more special with your uncle being there! Have a great day!

Daisy said...

Disco, you are indeed spoiled, and that's a good thing, I think. The blankets are beautiful!

Nonnie said...

Disco, I think you probably deserve to be spoiled. I bet the confirmation was one proud moment for grandma. Trudy

I have been thinking of making one of those blankets. Those are so nice. Great job!! I saw yesterday that there are even kits for those now. Maybe I could actually do one.

Susan said...

Hey Disco. Good to hear from you. Now you'd think that family woulda told you the native son was coming home for a visit.

You shouldn't be barking at him. Especially cuz he's a doctor and needs a few moments of peace when he goes home to visit.

Glad you got a blankie of your own.

Tell Sandie I think she did a great job on the Mickey blanket. Now that's something I could NEVER do.

Be nice to the kid. You know who I mean. The GS. You're so lucky to live there, Disco. No kidding. You got it good, pup. Those folks love you to the moon and back and I know that you know it.

Take care. Susan

jack69 said...

You have done well Disco Dog. Good to hear from you, and of course youare right to bark at stranges, that is what BIG Watch dogs do.
I guess it is better not to bite!!!
Looking good there sir, Keep the home fires burnign and safe for Grandma!!!
(((HUGS))) and Arf Arf

barbara l. hale said...

Great pics! What a cute doggie and cute kid! I love that little poster with the dog and cat. I have a similar picture with our greyhound and cat. Pretty funny!

Nancy said...

Disco always makes us laugh and smile at his antics...we do love our spoiled critters....

Andrea said...

Sooooooooo cute!!!!!! I love this post today... and the pictures too. I've always wanted to make one of those fleece blankets. You should write a tutorial! (easy for me to say, eh?? *lol*)

Have a great evening!!

--Andrea
XOXOXO

Ginny said...

What a great weekend...confirmation!!!And Poor Uncle! The blankets are beautiful, and you have your very own side with paws on it! Ask grandma if she is posting less, and if she told us about it and why I FORGOT!!!

Ann said...

Good job Disco. Those blankets are awesome. I bet you did a little supervising on those too didn't you? :)

Theresa said...

Cute blankets:) I am tickled to know that you didn't bite that uncle person! Give old granny a hug from me!

Grandma Bonnie said...

Oh, Disco you are so sweet. That is why grandma likes to spoil you. I hope you have a great day.

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Quite a writer, that Disco. His punctuation was perfect.

Jackie said...

Awesome job Disco and wow those blankets are super neat!

I understand about the barking problem. Please don't feel awkward. Mollipop has the same problem too.

She barks at everyone trying to protect us. It's been a hard lesson for her to learn who to bark at and who not to bark at also!

Happy week Disco...hugs for all!

Angela said...

Your grandma did a fantastic job on the blankets! Both grandsons will get some great use out of those. I've made a few for my kids and they love them as well. Congratulations to your boy!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

We all need a little spoiling! Can I come to YOUR house? And I love the pick your battles. I have to just walk away most of the time! lol Enjoy your week! Hugs!

Mevely317 said...

Oh Disco, no wonder you’re confused when we humans keep changing the rules! If you’re like my Caraleigh, I know you take this protection detail seriously. Don’t let your Grandparents forget to give you your paycheck (treat) everyday; we know you don’t guard the premises for free! J

PS – These quilts are wonderful. (Does your Grandma ever sleep?)

JeanMac said...

Sending love - hope all is well. J

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Disco, your posts are always so delightful! Maybe one day the humans can decipher your barks and realize you are only trying to be helpful. Love that Pick Your Battles photo. LOL!

That corgi :) said...

Loved the blankets! I knew you would be included Disco!! Sounds like a busy weekend for the family! Tell Grandma to slow down and relax a bit!

SweetMarie said...

I knew you were all spoiled! Your grandma is very talented!!! Love those blankets. :)

BlueShell said...

"I just knew he didn't really belong there and I was trying to warn them there was a stranger in the house. "...hahaha,...the poor thing!!!

It is always marvelous to come here and read what you have to tell us... Thank you.
Oh...I sent you an email...

Laurie said...

Dee said...

Disco your definitely in the right family....how lucky to get your own adorable little blanket. I can tell by your smile you love it :)

Dee said...

I was not talking about your boys smile...I see the smile in your eyes.

Renae at simple sequins said...

Oh Chatty! You are so fun. I am glad you liked those Valentine socks. I thought that was a fun touch of whimsey.

Simply Debbie said...

Sandie,
Congratulations on your grandson's confirmation. A beautiful step in a young man's life.
Disco Dog is awesome...he came to the right family. I can remember when you first brought him home.
I love your blankets...they look so very cozy and warm...how did you make it....
Thanks for stopping by to see me. I have very few visitors any more but then I was gone for 11 months..
I love the poster pick your battles.
I didn't know when I did my post this morning that Charlie, Diana's brother died...I mean it was one week from the time they diagnosed him until he died.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Those blankets came out so cute. I love the Mickey one, where did you find that? Little Miss Skye is not a barker unless she sees some animal outside. Hope your having a nice day. xoxo

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sandy .. sounds like Disco kept you all amused - but am so pleased strange uncle came to see his nephew confirmed ..

Love the photos and the rugs - no wonder you're behind .. cheers Hilary

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Don't believe it when they tell you that you spoiled, Duke. For you are just receiving what is owed you for a job well done!

thisisme said...

Woof! Always lovely to get a post from you Disco, and congratulations to your boy for being confirmed. How lovely that his uncle came along for this special occasion. I hope you didn't give him too much of a hard time!! Those blankets are amazing - I want one!! You are very lucky to have such a caring grandma. See you again soon, and don't you go barking at too many people. Woof Woof!

Betty Manousos said...

love the blankets.
great job!
disco is a lucky pup and sooo adorable!

hope you're having a great day~

The Boston Lady said...

Disco, your grandma secretly knows you were doing your duty with that "uncle guy" around. Love your blanket and the two she made the human kids. Please tell her I said congratulations on GS's confirmation, he really is a great boy, isn't he? Ann TBL

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I'm a little slow...I didn't know what UGA was and then I figured it out. Geesh...and I lived in Athens at one time. That last picture reminded me of my house except my dog prefers the cat bed for some reason and she's much too big for it. Congratulations on the Confirmation. Glad the Uncle didn't get bitten.

Nancy Claeys said...

I know it must be confusing when you are told not to bark, Disco -- I mean, that's what dogs do best, right? :)

Catherine said...

Nothing wrong with being a little spoiled. ;)
I hope the email prolem straightens out - frustrating!

Love the blanket! The Pick Your Battles poster is hilarious.

Lynn said...

Disco - here's a virtual pet on the head. :)

Miss Debbie said...

Learning more and more about picking battles... a lot of wisdom in that!

EM Illustrator said...

Hi Disco, sorry I am a bit late :(
I'm happy to see you're being spoiled, you deserve it.

Hugs,

Inger said...

Yes, I'm a bit late too and I agree with my Swedish friend EM above, you are such a good watchdog, worrying about your humans, that you deserve to be spoiled and get the best blankie.

DearHelenHartman said...

What a cutie! I mean a bunch of cuties!Woof.

forgetmenot said...

You've been busy with those great blankets you made--nice work! Love the thought for the day. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)
