Reuben's 6th of July with some rude lady dogs

Friends, yesterday I had slightly-delayed 4th of July celebration that I has given the highly creative name of "6th of July" to. Me and Mama and Daddy and People Sister wented to Grandpa man's house (which of course is where Gretchen lives), and Great Auntie C camed over with her dog Maisy, and my BFF Daisy camed over from next door. As the only male kind of dog in this arrangement, I thoughted I would get all the attentions. This turned out to NO be true!

Ladies... I is over here... please to no crowd all around me at once.

Um... I said I is over here.... hello?

Oh hi there Maisy, what's that? You is on your way to kitchen? Okays, see you later I guess.

Doesn't ANYDOG want to play with me?

But all of that was forgotted when I gotted THIS:

Holy molies, my very own hot dog, all for my Self!

I see how it is, Daisy. You only wants me for my hot dog, you harpy!

Then Daisy gotted sent home because she rudely ated Gretchen's hamburger. Then Gretchen did that thing she does where she goes and stands near Maisy and annoys her, so Maisy started growling at her. Meanwhile, I was content to finish my hot dog and then walk around peeing on many, many things. But then..... THIS started to happen:

Great Auntie C, it's a twister!

It no was a twister, just our thrice-daily thunderstorm. I got up on the car to bark those thunderboomers away! (Okay, Mama lifted me onto the car).

Grrrrrrr thunderboomers, I will dead you!

Then I gotted busy looking at my handsome self in the car window.

Why the ladies no wants a piece of Reuben? I looks amazing.

And before I knowed it....

AAAHHHH here it comes, run for your lifes!!!1!!11!

Oh well - at least we had an hour without rain to has our picnic. Now friends, I must mention that Daisy - who WAS my BFF - is now BFFs with Gretchen and not me. Probably on account of how Gretchen likes to "play" and "run around" and "jump," and other things that senior wieners like myself is too dignified to does. I played a little bit with Daisy, but mostly she and Gretchen just taked off and ignored me - Reuben. Now I has yet ANOTHER reason to be mad at Gretchen - as if I needed another one!


  1. I cannot believe all those lady dogs didn't want to play with you! They were probably intimidated by your extreme manliness.


  2. Wow..... THRICE DAILY RAINS... WE are having those TOO. We are about to have furs Rot from it.
    Well that or the fact that we keep getting MUDDY followed by the dreaded baffs.
    We are thrilled that you got a Picnic and your very own T U B E S T E A K !!
    butt sorry about Daisy was a Harpy!!

  13. Reuben, any girls that didn't want to hang around you, don't know a handsome face when they see it. I think you were better off with your yummy foodable. I am glad you are safe from the storms.

  14. Oh Reuben the girls were probably trying to get your attention by pretending to be coy. Who could resist such a handsome face? Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  15. Hey Reuben!
    Wow, I totally don't understand those woodogs! They are missing out on all of the handsomeness that is The Reuben Man. shesh They'll be sorry when you find yourself some trophy gal to hang out with. Meanwhile, that hot dog looks delish. Great job with that car...sure beats just chasing them! BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  16. LOL. That's okay dear Reuben. We love you! LOL. And I'm sorry for losing your BFF to another.

    And the hot dog... I know how much it hurts that they're only after you when you got something they want.

  17. Reuben guess what my Momma did for me over the weekend...yep your right she ordered your book on her ken doll and the next thing I knew her and me was snuggled up under the blankies cos dad turned the air conditioner on 4700 degrees and she read me some of your book! It was the bestest bed time story I had ever heard, and without embarassssing myself I just want to say you are one of the mostest handsomest little boys I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
    Tonight my momma is gonna read me some more about your life and all your helpful hints to us big and small...although Reuben at our house the SMALL'S don't need no help around here!!! (mags and gussie)
    My mom had to go back to work today after having 4 days off so we are all going through mom withdraw but dad is home with us today which means life is not to bad here in Iowa.

    p.s. we would love an autographed picture of you to put on our refrig with Maggie's picture of Puddles in her jail outfit.

  18. Those girl dogs must be blind! How can they not be impressed with you and not be loving you to pieces? I guess with all the hot dogs and hamburgers all over the place, they got distracted. I love the shot of you getting a look at your reflection in the car. Beautiful!

    Love and licks,

  19. Hi Reuben, what a handsome gent you are! Those girl dogs are just silly. Way to go - getting your own hotdog! My Rita is very jealous!

  20. Reuben, those lady dogs don't know a good thing when they see it! How could they snub you like that, especially when you were so brave and chased away the thunderboomers? Glad to hear you got your own hotdog and peed on a bunch of stuff, though! That's awesome!

    Susan and Wrigs

  21. I can't believe you got your own hot dog! Girls are weird!

  22. Glad you had a good 6th of July, you were pretty lucky to get a whole hot dog for yourself! Too bad the lady dogs were being weirdos, you deserve much better. Love the last picture the most, you look extra vigilant. :)

  23. Reuben you are such a ladies man, of course no surprise there. They no you are a published author and an expert on bravery so of course they are a little overwhelmed

  24. We will send Sam over - while he isn't of the female variety, I think you and Sam would get along just fine!


  25. Dear Reuben,

    I will give you licks and sniffs! I will not play though. I am a dignified lady, I do not play very often. Ojo will play with you though. Perhaps you want to come over to our Park? We live in Place-by-the-Ocean, Country-Called-Canada. Hope to see you soon!


  26. Oh Reuben - I can't believe all the lady dogs didn't want to hang out with you all day! I can't imagine that running around and jumping could be more interesting than bestowing their attentions on your fabulousness!
