I received a tag from Stella, the Queen of Gooberville and baby sister of our favorite Goober, Stanley to tell everyone 8 facts about myself! This is my first tag ever!

First are the rules: List eight ( 8 ) random facts about yourself. Tag eight people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them). Let them know they've been tagged by leaving them a comment on their blogs.

1. I'm a pup with four colors - white, brown, black and PINK! My belly has very little fur on it, so all you see is pink baby skin. Oh, and the brown parts are only on my face and bum! The great doG in heaven was being silly when he colored me.

2. I immediately settle down and take a nap if you put a blanket over my head.

3. I do not chew my food. My mama saw the evidence when I threw up a whole carrot she gave me.

4. I wait for Sparky to soften up his piggy skin roll treat, then I steal his and claim it as my own.

5. I can potty on command, which my mama and pop learned the hard way! They kept saying "Patches, do you need to go outside to go potty?" and I would squat and potty right there - on the couch, the floor, the bed - it didn't matter. It seriously took them a week to figure that out!

6. My bark sounds like a woman's scream. I think I could give Tadpole a run for his money in the sound department.

7. I'm being enrolled in Puppy Day Care for socialization, since I bark at every human and animal that moves. (I'm no longer allowed to go to PetSmart due to my excessive hyperactivity - mama's rules, not PetSmart's. She said I sound like an abused puppy and people come running to make sure I'm OK.)

8. My breath smells really bad, because I am finally losing all of my teeth.

Now for the Pinot, Joey, Toby, Balbao, Ozzy, Poppy, Gwen, and finally - Petra. Don't let me down guys (and gals)!

Going potty on command; that's pretty funny! I'm still trying to figure out what they question really means.

I want to hear more about your Puppy Day Care socializing thing. Maybe they'll teach you to bark an octave lower.

Patches, congrats for your first tag!! :) I love your answer #1 since we share the exact same colours including 'pink'! ;)

Thanks for the tag!! The game will be posted shortly.

It doesn't bug you to have a blankie over your head? Don't you feel like you're suffocating?
You are adorable, ya know!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

It occurs to mom after reading this list of random facts that my breath may have been so stinky for a while because I was losing my teefs too. Ah-hah, I knew I wasn't a natural-born stinky pants!

My uncle Jakey the beagle has the same coloring as you! Except his brown is all over and his belly looks like an oinker's. He's a total pot belly porker! You are cute and puppy-snuggly.

Hey, I don't chew my food too! I barely chew them & then I just swallow them immediately, especially the whole hard boiled egg. I can swallow the whole thing without getting chocked! Good huh? Hehehehe...

Love licks,

It's so fun to inhale food without chewing, isn't it? Ahhh. Good times!

Great answers - we loved reading them!

OOOOH, thanks for the tag buddy!!!!

I have to start working on my list.

I'd love to see a video of you barking.

So, what do your parents say to you now to prevent you from going on command.

Hi Patches!
Thanks for sharing those things with us! And guess what - I bark at every dog and human and thing that moves too! Mom is getting really annoyed with me, and maybe I have to go to some socialization class too?! This all started after I finished my intermediate classes... so it's weird.
Love Clover xo

Sparky said...

Ha ha ha... Humans can be so stupid, eh? I can't believe they didn't know you could potty on command!


Lady Kaos said...

I am so going to try the blanket thing on my cat brother!!! And the going potty on command thing is hilarious! It really took them a week to figure that out? My parents are slow learners, too. I'm still confused why humans run the world instead of us dogs.

Poppy said...

Thanks for tagging me! I just posted my list.


Dory and Liza said...

Aww Patches - thanks for sharing! You are absolutely too cute for words!

Stanley said...


You are one interesting little guy. I can't wait to see how you do in your puppy daycare. Wish we could see some video of you stealing Sparky's softened up rawhide.

Stella & I are catching up some. Our girl has been busy & we were without internet for about a week. She will be so excited when she hears that you posted on this tag.

Goober love,

Stella said...

Sweet Patches Boy!

WooooooHooOooOOooo. Thanks for doing this tag, buddy. I LOVE your answers. We have a lot in common. I go potty whenever my girl says that word too, I'm always taking things away from my bruzzer Stanley, and whenever someone puts a blanket or towel over my head, I go completely Zen (I stop moving and making noise).

I sure would like to see your pink belly. My belly is pink too.

Gooby love & kissies,

Thanks for your help,
