Who Is Dodger Calling?

Our dog, Dodger, doesn't spend too much time home alone. Doc takes him along pretty much everywhere he goes. Lately, because it has been so hot here, he has been left home a little more often. He usually doesn't get into any trouble when he is left alone, but lately every time we come home we find the phone in Doc's office  off the hook. We can't help but wonder who Dodger has been calling.

It might be his ex-girlfriend, Sammie, who lives in the neighborhood. He has been sort of making eyes at  her  again across the open space.

Maybe he is trying to find an exterminator to do something about that pesky squirrel who constantly teases him from a tree in the back yard.

He might be looking for an agent. Some people at the dog park have started calling him Hollywood and telling him he looks like he should be in the movies.I've been afraid that would go to his head.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was calling Dog Protective Services to report us for leaving him home alone. 

I hope he hasn't gotten hooked up with a pretty Poodle in Paris. That could get very expensive. 

Since Dodger won't admit to anything we'll just have to wait until we get the phone bill to find out what he has been up to.

In the meantime I guess we will have to quit hiding the remote and let him go back to watching Pay-Per-View when he is home alone. It is  probably cheaper than calling Paris.


  1. LOL, Jeanie! How cute! Makes you wonder what he is doing while you guys are gone!! He is lucky, when we go out (which is very rare without him and not for long periods of time) Koda ends up in his crate so he doesn't have options to go exploring :)

    enjoy your week ahead!


  2. Hahaha, can´t wait to hear what the phone bill looks like. :)
    Maybe you should put up a "Teddy Cam", so you can see what he is doing while you´re gone.

  3. I have two words for you -
    "Nannie Cam".

    Obviously Dodger (love that name)
    is not to be trusted.

  4. This is so funny! Maybe he doesn't like it when it rings?

  5. Awww... this is so adorable. I LOVE your clip art. Dodger is such a cutie.

  6. Hope he's not calling any long distances!

  7. That is hilarious! I agree with the nanny-cam ideas. If you see any 636 area codes on your bill, it might be Tootsie. I've been working lately and she is unsupervised until the kids get up!

    I think Hollywood would welcome Dodger with open arms!

    Cute post!

  8. Funny! I love me some Dodger. I bet he's just ordering a pizza. I agree with the ladies above. A nanny cam would be great.

  9. Oh, dear! You're going to need Skype. Or one of those Vonnage things that ends up being free, sort of. Of course, then Dodger will need to use the computer...

  10. I have been getting a few hang ups. Maybe he has been calling me.

  11. Dodger is full of personality. No wonder he has such a following.

  12. In my next life, I want to come back as your dog! Dodger sounds like he has it pretty darn good :-)
    Happy weekend, jj

  13. oh my...such adventures (o:
    Have you been as busy as I have...summer definitely gives me a run for my a good way.
    Hope Doc stays out of trouble. You too! Are the baseball games over?

  14. Fingers crossed he hasn't been calling any of those naughty numbers advertised late at night... I watched Hotel For Dogs yesterday, seemingly ANYTHING is possible!
