Dingo's Elusive 'Call of the Wild'

I have been trying to capture this moment on video for months without any success until now!

Every time Dingo hears a fire engine or police siren he goes into 'hi alert mode'. It's so funny to watch him run around the house and yard baying in response to the piercing noise. The problem with capturing it on video is once he sees he's got your attention he stops baying, almost as if he's passing the problem on to you. I was lucky enough this time to sneak up on him to capture him in the act.

My Dad Barry's Birthday

Happy Birthday Dad!

Just wanted to share this photo of us celebrating Barry's birthday. My horn had treats inside which were super yummy! Can't wait until we can do it again next year.

Me And My Buddies At The Beach

Yesterday I convinced my owners, and good buddies Mark and Barry, to take me to the beach. We all agreed the house was too hot and that we couldn't stay in so I gave them my tried and true, 'let's play in the sand' look. It worked as always, and soon we packed up some water and snacks and headed on our way.

We went to our favorite beach called Leo Carrillo as they accept four legged people like me. I go crazy once I feel the sand between my paws and challenged Mark to a race to see who was the fastest runner.

Of course, I won the contest as always!

After our race we had a long walk along the waves enjoying the water between our paws. We then headed back for some snacks and enjoyed the sunset where we took a few photos of the three of us. I really like this one where we're all enjoying the sand on our bellies. Nothing could be better!

Unfortunately the weather suddenly turned on us. It got very cold and the wind really kicked up. I couldn't even keep my eyes open for the camera.

I hate this picture of me but Mark and Barry thought it was funny. They say it makes me look like something called a "Yoda". I have no idea what that is but I'll let them keep the photo up as they get some humor out of it.

So we headed home after a fun day out and on the ride home I enjoyed the breeze on my face.

There's nothing like the wind in your ears while you're out on a drive. I highly recommend it if you haven't tried it yet.

Until next time,

Your Buddy Dingo!

Dingo Portrait By Pete

Hello everyone, it's Dingo!

When the exhausting demands of my job (squirrel patrol and toy burying) get to be too much, one of my favorite places to get away from it all is right next door. The place is Pete and Rachel's house who are some of my best friends. They take care of me when Mark and Barry are away doing important 'people things'. As difficult as it is to see my parents leave, staying with Pete and Rachel is a treat. I always look forward to my visits with them as they give me lots of love and attention plus let lay on their big comfy couch while we all watch movies and have snacks.

While out on a walk late one afternoon, Pete took this photo of me on his camera-thingy. I loved it so much I wanted to share with everyone. I think it captures my more dramatic side as if I'm reflecting briefly on the past while moving forward into a promising future.

Thanks Pete and Rachel for being such good friends.

Your buddy,

Dingo Buries His Friends

Dingo shows the best way to preserve a friendship is to bury it in the ground until it's needed at a later date. This dog cracks me up every time he parades his dog toys around desperate to find a safe place to bury them.

Note from Dingo: For all of my non-human friends. Please refer to the the following map to retrieve my toys should I find myself unable to dig them up in the future. These are my prized possessions so please handle them with care.

PS - If you have need to bury my treasures yourself and you are unable to do so outside, I find the next best place is in your masters bed. The covers make a great place to dig and hide them for later use.

Yours truly,
