Attack of the killer vacuum

What is it about household cleaning supplies that Riggs has to freak out about it.  Any time one of us pulls out the vacuum cleaner, broom or mop, Riggs comes running over to investigate and then starts running around dodging and weaving around it.  I guess I could kind of understand his issue with the vacuum cleaner but the broom or mop?  Really?

Good luck Grandpa

Over President Day, Mama and I took a trip to Las Vegas and left Riggs with Grandpa.  Sounds like everything went well for the most part.  When taking Riggs for a walk around the neighborhood, he tends to walk as far ahead of you as the leash rope will allow.  Riggs also likes to cut the corners on the sidewalk and if you are not paying attention and quick enough he will cause the leash rope to drag along the grill or underneath a car that is parked.  Grandpa either forgot this or was not paying attention and Riggs successfully got the leash rope caught on the underside of a Porsche.  From the way Grandpa described it Riggs got it caught under there pretty good.  So here Grandpa is on his hands and knees fiddling around under the Porsche trying to get the rope untangled hoping the owner of the Porsche or anyone else for that matter does not come out or call the police to report suspicious activity.  After about 30 mins he finally got the rope untangled.

Are you sure we don't own a cat? (Part 4)

This is the fourth related post I have done about signs that Riggs is not really a dog but a cat.  I know cats are known for finding a window with the sun shining in and laying in the sunlight.  Well apparently Riggs does as well.

Scary outside at night

Riggs gets so paranoid when you take him outside after dark.  His eyes get all wide and he is on constant alert.  Looking all around, listening intently and dang near impossible to get him to focus on peeing and pooing instead of worrying that something is going to come out and get him.  How did we end up with such a wussy dog?  Maybe I should have named you Scooby Doo.

Toy Chest - Tuesday

I think we are finally getting in the home stretch of new stuffed animals to introduce.  We finally have educated ourselves on what stuffed animals will last and which will get destroyed.  Today we introduce...


R.I.P. (Rest In Pieces):
Baboo the monkey

If any of you remember back on 12/22/2009 during Toy Chest - Tuesday I introduced Baboo to you guys and told you he makes this loud screeching sound when you squeeze him and Riggs loves to squeeze him over and over.  I mentioned that I hoped he destroyed that stuffed animal quickly.  As you can see it took over a year for him to finally destroy him.
