Wowee! How fun is THIS? We got tagged by our furends Puddles, Bunny and Nola to play this game where we get to tell you a little more about ourselves. I talked Brudder Ranger into pawticipating so here we go!

1.  Describe yourself in seven words.

Mayzie — I. Am. Super. Happy. And. Most. Lovable. Was that seven?

Ranger — Mayzie, I believe they meant a list of seven adjectives. In which case , the ones I would choose for myself are:

1. courageous
2. thoughtful 
3. intelligent
4. affectionate
5. protective
6. introspective
7.  loyal

Oooo…good words, Brudder Ranger!

Thank you, Mayzie.

2.  What keeps you up at night?

Mayzie – Nothing. Not a thing. I LUVS the night time cuz I gets a Kong and I dream about chasing squirrels and stuff.

Ranger  – I tend to ponder many things at night. The rising price of dog food, home security, whether Romney will secure the nomination despite the scandal of Crate Gate

So many things to ponder.

Gosh, it sounds kinda hard to be you, Brudder Ranger.

You have no idea, Mayzie. You have no idea.

3.  Who would you like to be?

Mayzie — Oh, gosh, I just luvs being me! I can’t think of why I’d wanna be anybuddy else. Oh! Unless I could be Super Mayzie with super powers that would let me fly to all the homeless doggies and kittehs and sprinkle magic on them so they could find their Most Perfect Homes That Ever Were. Oh, wouldn’t that be AH-mazing? I would luvs that.

Ranger – Very noble, Mayzie. As for me, I would like to remain myself. However, I have occasionally wished I had been born in a Rottweiler or German Shepherd body. Somehow, I feel that I might garner more respect and humans wouldn’t be so apt to make off with our shrubbery.

4.  What are you wearing right now?

Mayzie — My Most Beautiful Brindle Furs!

Ranger — I too am…oh, what’s the street slang for it?…oh, yes…commando.

5.  What scares you?

Mayzie — Well, not as much as USED to skeer me, that’s for sure! But I’m still not super-crazy abouts new stuff and I don’t really like surprises too much. So nobuddy ever throw a surprise pawty for me, okay?

Ranger — This is a ridiculous question. I am, of course, fearless.

Mayzie — Uhhh…what about loud noises? You don’t like those at ALL.

Ranger – What? Uh..haha…don’t be ridiculous. I am not…

Mayzie – OH! And PLATES! Don’t forget about how you’re skeered of plates!

Ranger – I, uh…I don’t know what you mean. I most certainly am not afraid of plates.

Mayzie – Well, then, why do you duck your head and go off in a corner when mom and dad put the plates down for pre-rinse?

Ranger – Mayzie…DEAR…that is simply a precautionary measure, nothing more. I do not entirely trust a human’s ability to keep a grasp on slick eating surfaces.  But I can ASSURE you that I am not AFRAID of plates. Utterly preposterous!

Mayzie – Oh, cuz I really thought you...

Ranger – Well, obviously, you were mistaken. Can we move on, please? What is the next question?

6.  The best and worst of blogging?

Ranger — The worst part is that I am not allowed a more frequent platform to discuss concerns and issues that are of great import to me. The best part is, of course, all the lovely acquaintances we have made in this community.

Mayzie – Oh, yes! I luvs that part of blogging, too! And I LUVS how everybuddy joins paws when one of our neighbors needs help. The worst part is saying good-bye when one of our furends has to go to the Bridge. I hate that.

7.  What was the last website you visited?

Ranger — I read a magnificent blog post about Max, the dog who recently bit the news anchor in Denver. It was written by a trainer in Denver and she does an excellent job breaking down what led to the bite. 

Mayzie – The Mango Minster bloggie, to cast my vote for Too Darn Cute. Boy, was that ever HARD! ALL my furends are Too Darn Cute! (PeeS. Today is the voting for the Adventure Animals category, which is the one I’m in! So be sure to check it out.)

8.  What is the one thing you would change about yourself?

Ranger — Other than the aforementioned Rottweiler body, I cannot think of a thing. I am a terrier, after all. Why would I possibly want to change?

Mayzie — Let’s see…I wish I wasn’t skeered of ANYTHING, cuz that would be pawesome. And I wish that I had thumbs so I could make my own dinner. And sometimes I wish I had LONG brindle furs instead of short ones, so that I never got cold. But other than that, I’m pretty darn happy with the way I am!

It's great being me!

9.  Slankets, yes or no?

Ranger – I gather this is some type of clothing? If so, not in a million years. I find clothing on a dog ridiculous and am mortified each time mother insists that I must put on a coat because it’s “too cold to go without one, darling.” Pshaw! I am a terrier! I am tough. I have no need for outerwear (or underwear, for that matter).

Mayzie – A blankie you can WEAR? Sign me up!

10.  Tell us something about the person (people) who tagged you.

Let’s see…

Nola is super adorable and photo-jennick and she has the bestest “leave it” of any doxie out there, I think.

Bunny is GAWJUSS and I finds her very much Most Soothing. I always feel calmer and happier after I read her bloggie.

Puddles is my BFF and she has a super good heart, in spite of what she wants you to think. She’s kinda like the Bart Simpson of Blogville.

Okie doke…now we’re supposed to tag 8 furends to play along. (And if you don’t wanna, that’s okay. But we wanna gives you the chance if you DO wanna play!)

The eight we chose were (in no pawticular order)…

Garth Riley
Stuart the Scottie
Our Waldo Bungie
Madi and Mom
Nubbin Tails
One Pibble’s Wish
Little Miss Jackie and Dillon
Pooches for Peace (my newest furends)

And if you didn’t get tagged but want to play along…GO FOR IT!

Have a happy Monday, everybuddy!

  1. We were tagged, we were tagged! We’re so excited! And we learned so much about you, Ranger and Mayzie. We had no idea Brudder Ranger was quite so serious, but he’s got a very good point about clothing (other than Halloween costumes)!

  2. Dear Mayzie and Brudder Ranger:

    We enjoyed your answers, and discovered that Teka and Brudder Ranger have a lot in common. Except Teka does not think deep thoughts and she mostly is Ok with being clothed, but the Rottweiler body….Oh my, the places she could see with one of those.

    Terriers rule
    (that’s you too, Miss Mayzie…you must have a bit or two of terrier in you!)

  3. This is a MOST excellent post and captures you both, perfectly!

  4. Maisie doesn’t like surprises or new stuff very much either, Mayzie! and Ranger I had no idea how articulate and well spoken you are…perhaps politics are in YOUR future?

  5. Oh Mayzie, that was so much fun reading all about you and Brudder Ranger. We sure wouldn’t want anything to change about either one of you. You two gave some really good answers. Loved the discussion about plates. Too funny. Hope all of you have a great week.

  6. Hehehehehe, I thorougly enjoyed readinng all dis. You and Ranger act and sound just likes me and my Albert. He be one of them deeeeep thinkers too and it just really is annoyin’.

  7. Sam

    It’s always fun to learn new things about our friends!


  8. Oh my gosh, this absolutely cracked me up! Ranger, I had NO idea you were so introspective – and I, too, stay up nights wondering about Crategate! Thanks for the tag – Turk, Rufus, and Lucy will have to start thinking of their answers!

  9. MOL Mayzie
    Your answers were well thought out and eloquently delivered.
    I especially liked your ‘discussion’ with Ranger about plates.

    Ranger have you ever thought of running for public office? You have a very sharp mind and are quite a stately gentleman who is not afraid to tackle anything as long as it isn’t on a plate!! MOL.

    OMC Mom and I thank you a ton for tagging us…we were tag a little over week ago by Amber the Doxie in Florida. It was such great fun too.
    Hugs from your BFFF,

  12. This was very interesting, and I learned a lot about you and Ranger both! Aren’t Kongs just the most wonderful thing ever? I don’t get one at night — too busy snuggling with my mom! — but I get one every morning when Mom goes to work and I hang out in my room.

  13. Frankie Furter and Ernie

    I think that the two of you did the most aMAYZIEing (hehehe) job with this. You simply told it like it IS… I still remember the Sea Link Fan bird thingy. hehehe

  14. Benny & Lily

    Benny & Lily

  15. Thanks so much for tagging me, Mayzie and Ranger! This is a great post! We really enjoyed hearing from Ranger, and we always enjoy hearing from Mayzie. What a great photo of Mayzie! We were just reading one of these “tagging” blog posts on someone else’s blog a couple days ago and thinking it would be fun to play, and then you tagged us!

  16. Imagine da shape da girl would be in I hadn’t comes to live heres…I just can’t even thinks bouts it, it’s too disturbin’.


  17. Great postie, you two!! Ranger, we were watching your cuzzins the Jack Russel Terriers last night on Dog Whisperer. You guys are TOUGH!! If you were the size of us your house and neighborhood would be a much safer place!!

    -Bart and Ruby

  18. Those were great guys! See you at the dance!

  19. Hey Mayzie Mom…we meant to comment on the article about Max. I know nothing about dog training or advanced dog body language; however, the first thing I said was why was the reporter up in a strange dog’s face. I can identify with Max…I don’t like strangers in my face either!! They article was quite informative. I hope and pray Max isn’t the one to pay the ultimate price for his owner’s mistakes. Unfortunately there are lots of dog owners who get them just to say they have them and they know nothing!!
    Hugs C

  20. I really enjoyed reading your answers! Hey, I don’t like those loud noises either, especially at night!

  21. Oh what great things to know about you! Glad you guys are helping out with the pre-rinse–that’s an important job in our house!

  22. I love this post, but the thing that cracked me up the most was calling Puddles the Bart Simpson of blogville!

  23. Daisy

    We loved hearing all the answers to your questions. You are both so different, guess that’s why you complement each other.

    XXXOOO Daisy,Bella & Roxy

    Afraid of plates?…hmmmm.

  24. Dear Mayzie and Ranger,

    I came over from Stuart’s blog to see what you were all about. You two are HYSTERICAL and I am going to ask my mom for another dog in the house so I can have someone to interact with like you two. Still laughing as I head over next to check on Puddles because anybody you’re calling the Bart Simpson of blogville is definitely worth checking out!

    Nice to meet you both,


  25. Cool thanks for tagging us. We will defurnitely play! We just answer the questions and tag 8 more people right? It was fun (&funny) reading bout u two!

  26. Pip

    Brudder Ranger! I had no idea you were so deep. Quite a thinker you are! I am most concerned about Crate Gate as well. You can tell a lot about someone by the way they treat their animals. Don’t you think?

    Your pal, Pip

  27. Tank

    Nice job both of you. I’m giving you an A++

  28. OoH Mayzie,
