Dog-mom, do you know what your pup does when you are away?

I’ve been away for a rather long time…but I’ll write about it later. The last two months have been rather difficult, but it’s good to be back 🙂

Here’s what your pet does when you are away. (Ladies, please don’t get emotional.)

Reading your diary - when you are away keyhole cartoons by bobby elhans.

More later. It’s dinner time, and in this new facility you get twenty minutes to down your food; if you fail you can forget about eating anything until the next morning. More about that in my next post.

I must go now.

From the Hideout: Dogs have Feelings too – So choose your words carefully!

I’ve been stuck here for about two weeks now. It’s been like I’ve been living the longest Alaskan night in Deadhorse, Alaska! I bet I am not going to be out of here in 54 nightly days…it might be a lot longer than that.

I had read somewhere that an empty mind is the devil’s workshop. Well, the devil has been working all the Alaskan night long, and producing content that doesn’t fit into any genre…nor does it fit into my head!

But let’s push the devilish thoughts aside and talk about feelings.

We always find people whining about how others hurt their feelings. Some people, young and old alike, think that everyone else needs to be careful with their words; everyone except they themselves. Then we also have people, more often the young ones, who think that elders need to give them space; but that the elders don’t need any space for themselves. You know the kind, don’t you?

And yet, not everyone complains. They too have feelings, they too feel hurt, but they don’t snap at us (thankfully,) they don’t get teary-eyed, they don’t throw stuff around, they don’t huff and puff and walk out of the door – they just let us be nasty.

If you have a dog or a cat, you know what I am talking about. You can recall, the way I can, those incidents when you did stuff that was totally uncalled for…and then later, without asking for any explanation, your furry friend was by your side again – not demanding apologies, not showing you the emotional bruises left behind by your rough treatment.

Here’s what would happen if your dog was human.

Cartoon pets (dogs and cats) - Dogs have feelings too - what would dogs do if they were human!

We are lucky that they are dogs…and cats…and ever so forgiving 🙂

 

If you’ve got a pet, there’s a good chance that you love him or her; even then, there are occasions when they exasperate you, and you shout at them. Reign your emotions in. They can’t fight you back – not on account of their hurt feelings.

Now go, hug your pet.

Additional Note: No. They aren’t “it.” Not for me. Not for most pet-owners and animal-lovers. The Grammarians must call it quits on this matter.

From the Hideout: Every Dog Knows – To Hit the Mark, Aim a Little Above it!

Still here, but no grudges. I’ve been making cyber-friends who don’t talk to me but Like my posts, tweets, and retweets. It sort of makes me feel a little in touch with the thriving humanity outside this can of a place I am living in. As I said, no grudges.

I’ve never been a target-oriented hound of perfection. Never was, never will be. I think that the obsession to be perfect is the bane of the human-society. No other being is so driven by the need to hit the mark every time, all the time! Really. Let us talk about the writerly types. We obsess over punctuation and grammar all the time. I sometimes wonder why I should experience an acid reflux every time a comma decides to swap places with a period, or a “the” changes into “they”. It just squeezes all the fun out of writing, doesn’t it?

Here are a couple of target-oriented canines. Never before I had drawn a pup in the act of answering nature’s call – but the call to draw this cartoon came from within and strangely enough it helped me overcome my fear of drawing a peeing pup (PeeingPupPhobia?) !

If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it. – Henry W. Longfellow

Pup and Dog Cartoons - a pup learns to pee - if you would hit the target you have to aim a little higher!

Incidentally, this Follow thing’s great. It helps you discover like-minded people both-ways. Here are few of the blogs that I discovered through this route.

Check them out – depending upon where your interests lie.  I’ll share some more links with my future toony blogposts. On The Heroes front, Chapter 4 is ready to roll off the line, and will be presented either tomorrow or the day after. If you are new here, please find the links to the chapters of the book in the right sidebar.

Returning to the topic of Perfection and aiming right, what are your thoughts?
Who are you?

  1. A Perfection Hound,
  2. A Just-Missed-the-Target Pup,
  3. An I-gave-up-on-Perfection Wise Old Dog?!

From the Hideout – Why we need Google and Dogs don’t?

(Note to the Readers: “Chapter 3: The Boy who lived in the Cave” will be posted tomorrow.)

For the last three days, I’ve been killing the keyboard over this story that I want to enter in a competition. Deep inside I know that I am not competition material. I’ve never won anything – not even a trip to the local fun-park. And yet I am sending an entry to this competition. Why? Because I am trapped in this underground hole of a room, and I have nothing better to do.

My situation is somewhat similar to Cubby’s except that I feel that his is a notch better than mine. I am sure Cubby would disagree.

On the virtual ground level of the world of Internet, I’ve discovered some cool blogs and learned to re-tweet and favorite, and frankly I am enjoying it.

Here are some of the blogs that I am following now. If you too have been canini-fied, you will find them as interesting as I do.

In the past few days, the story of our heroes has progressed a lot and I’ll be posting the fresh chapters more frequently now, so if are interested in reading pet-fiction and super-hero fantasies, push the Follow button and the chapters will be delivered right there in your mailbox.

By following this blog you confirm that you think you are below 18.

I am not going to repeat this elsewhere on the blog, and if you do follow this blog, I’ll assume that you do believe that you are still in your teens.

Let me leave you with this sketch that just appeared on my notebook, two days ago. I added a smart looking number and the blog address, so that it looked blog-worthy. I must share the credit for creation of this cartoon with my dog, whose continual sniffing led me to think that she was googling her treats up. For my incorrect conjecture, my left ear was promptly barked off. You moron, she said, humans need Google, because their noses don’t work.

smart and cute dog pup pet cartoon - why we need google.

Oh, Rumpydog has posted a cute poem about the powerful canine nose here. Do check it out.

That’s all, folks!

Tomorrow I shall return to tell you about the nameless boy and his discovery – and then we will return to Cubby and Zoe and see how they’ve been faring.

From the Hideout – Finally, a formula that calculates the Cuteness of your Dog!

 “Chapter 2: Cubby” is coming up tomorrow.

Today, I intend to share this awesome formula with you. I’ve been working on this since last evening. If you’ve read this, you know that down here, I am forced to find innovative ways to keep myself occupied. One would expect my temporary subterranean abode to at least tempt the mice, but they too have kept away. I think that the canine smell on my clothes must have worked as some kind of vermin-repellent.

Without meandering any more, let me come to the crux of the canine-cuteness matter.

Here’s the formula.

Cc = (The sum of the values of the positive traits of your dog)/(The sum of the values of the negative traits of your dog)
If a trait exists in your dog, provide a value of 1. If it doesn’t, provide a value of 0.

Here’s the list of the five positive traits that make up the numerator.

  1. Innocence
  2. Playfulness
  3. Loyalty
  4. Love
  5. A round knobby nose

And the five negative traits that add up to form the denominator are as follows.

  1. Evil
  2. Revengefulness
  3. Hatred
  4. Duplicity
  5. A devilishly pointy, trifurcated tail

Sample Solution:
Here’s how I worked out the Cute-ness of my dog to be “infinity.”

How to calculate the cuteness of your dog - the secret formula - bobby elhans

If you have a canine family member, use this formula and see if you arrive at a different result. If your answer is different from mine, I recommend you check whether your dog is actually an illegal immigrant from the feline world and has been living with you under an assumed canine identity.
