Thursday’s BORKING REPORT!

Today’s BORKING REPORT!
 
It’s a chilly day here in San Diego and the Potato had to be kitted up in some fleece to go out. Also it rained. As you all know the Borker, he LOVES a damp, muddy lawn and his borking route is FULL of them. A fleece is very necessary during rainy days or the Potato will come home covered in grass, wet leaves and mud.
 
He waited very patiently for his Auntie Jessica to arrive and then told her all about his week in a waddling grumble as he headed to the door. He really is an old Scottish man. I should get him a tartan fleece but I’d probably have to get one custom made to fit his blocky form. Although I have found a few dog clothes places that make good Monster Cairn clothes.
 
Gus Gus is a utlitarian type of dog. Not really fussy. Likes a nice piece of bacon and a bit of dried potato. Belly rubs and scritches are good as well. And a good ramble. He does so love his Borking Rambles. We’re going to Mon and Thurs to give him time to rest between and upping his play a bit thru the week. We want the Potato to be healthy and happy for as long as we can have him.
 
From his Auntie Jessica:
Gus loved the nice and cool weather today! He did a lot of borking and rolling around in the damp grass. See him next week. Hope he gets plenty of rest!

It’s Wednesday, My Dudes and A Borking Report

I’ve been trying to reboot my brain by doing some home art. Basically I’ve got a kind of blank wall now and I’m doing a take on hanafuda cards. Almost done but… there’s this thing when you wonder if you’re going to like it and if you can stand looking at shit you’ve made. Art is… subjective and even more so when it’s your own. I hate what I art more than what I write and as most authors can tell you, we loathe our wording. Or at least the sane ones do.
It’s a thing 😀 But I shall get this done and we’ll see if I like or love it.
And Today’s WEDNESDAY SPECIAL BORKING REPORT!
So it was storming hard this morning and it was a bit of touch and go if the Borking Potato was going to be able to go out but the sun came out just in time for him to take a good trot around the block. He was kitted up when his Auntie came by… dressed in his full raincoat regalia because knowing him, he was going to pounce on every puddle he saw.
And he did.
As well as drinking from the puddles because he’s a dorkwad.
From his Auntie Jessica:
Gus loved rolling around in all the wet grass! It stopped raining perfectly for our walk and the sun was out! I’m sure Gus loved the cold air.
Best, Jessica

Today’s BORKING REPORT!

Today’s BORKING REPORT!
 
Today was apparently the best day ever because Gus the Blond Potato was out the door and living large as soon as his feet hit the sidewalk. It was a power walk day where he ran his Auntie ragged with how fast of a pace he set up. It’s hard to remember to pull him back and temper his borking trot but he’s an old man. He’ll be feeling that near-run pace he loves in a few hours after he comes home.
 
And of course he went head down into the water, cavorted and then got scritches from his Aunt Jessica as soon as he came home. He’s been in a cavorting kind of mood. Right now, his eyes have been cleaned, he’s gotten his allergy treats and he’s stalking his dinner… a fine mix of grain-free, high-protein kibble topped with a beef stew.
 
And later, there will be a sweet potato snack. And much snoring.
 
From his Auntie Jessica:
Gus did a lot of borking today! So many people out! I’m sure he will be very tired today. See him soon!
 
Best,
Jessica

A Monday BORKING REPORT!

Today’s BORKING REPORT!

The Potato was very happy this morning to see his Auntie Jessica. Yesterday he had a long car trip and then came home to naps and snuggles. This morning, he was kitted out and all ready to go.

He’s actually doing well for an old Pupper. That’s one thing I have to watch out for because the Gus Gus will be 13 in April and that’s a long time for a cairn. He’s definitely a solid little pupper and getting him to do anything with a toy never goes far so his exercise pretty much is walking around and wrestling. He is more than happy to go with you in and out of the house. That never gets old in the Potato’s world. But I do have to get some kind of step / ramp thing for the back door since it’s a bit of a drop and the hop up can sometimes be a strain. Usually when it’s cold.

But today is warm and he came into the house with a lot of grassy bits on him… because someone obviously mowed the lawn and he found it. Nothing like wet grass and cavorting for this dog. He’s a silly thing.

He has a mobile groomer coming on Thursday and hopefully he’ll behave for them. We’ll see. He apparently decided to poop again today on his walk. The world is getting crazy out there. He’s very relaxed now. But still, borking at the lawn guys because that’s what a Potato does.

From his Auntie Jessica:
Gus did a lot of rolling around in the grass today. He looked so happy! He had a lot to say to all the neighbors too!
Best, Jessica

Today is BORKING REPORT Day!

Today’s BORKING REPORT!

It’s rainy and cold out today but there was a brief spat of sunshine that coincided with the Potato’s borking trot today. He was geared up and well…while I wanted the Blond Potato to go out because he really needed a good Bork, I should get him a black harness if I’m going to dress him because the orange one clashes with his blue fleece coat or I could get a coat that’s more colour appropriate to the harness. He looked like a mad Portuguese auntie dressed him.

He came home happy and panting and then after a brief snorkel in the water dish… and I do mean snorkel because he goes ears deep into the water, he came for scritches and love to both me and Auntie Jessica. He then said goodbye to her after she tested out the new living room chair to make sure it was more comfortable than the other one (it’ll need a bit of breaking in). Following his farewells, he began his post-walk cavort in his bed (video included) and now is snoring off in pupper-land for a well-deserved nap.

It’s really hard being a Potato. His life is just one whirlwind of activity after even followed by napping.

And then snackies. And belly rubs.

From his Aunt Jessica:
It was nice and cool out for Gus this morning. He had so much fun rolling around in the grass! He was pretty calm too since there weren’t many people out!
Best, Jessica

Today’s BORKING REPORT! And a bit about Don Juan El Gato de los Pantalones….

Today’s BORKING REPORT!
 
The Potato has been sharing the back yard with the Badger but the bi-weekly walks are solely for the Blond Borker. He is excited about the new harness or at least appears to be when I pull it out. So there’s that.
 
To be fair, Badger has learned where HIS harness is and goes over to show us where it is in case we’ve forgotten. Usually right after we’ve come in from the back yard after taking him out. El Gato spend a good portion of his time outside digging in a dirt patch and rolling in it. He was filthy. Probably still is. I’m going to have to use a swiffer to get him clean. Dusting the cat is a real thing apparently.
 
The Borker was so happy to see his Auntie Jessica and he left the house borking away. Probably telling her that he has to now share the back yard with the Asshole Badger but he’s free off a leash while the cat is not. So there’s a bit of smugness there.
 
From his Aunt Jessica:
 
Gus had fun today! Not too many people out so we walked a little further. It was actually pretty hot out this morning so I hope he’s getting plenty of water!
 
Best Regards, Jessica!

Monday’s Borking Report… and a Video!

Today’s BORKING REPORT!
 
It was a happy Potato day. He’s gotten a lot of scritches before going out to bork and apparently there was a LOT to bork at while on his walk. He chatted up and down the street… because you can hear him and then came back fat, happy, and thirsty. Got a lot of water into him and then fell into cavorting.
 
So since I don’t think any of you have ever seen him cavorting, I took a video. Jessica loves him so much. And he returns it. We’ve quite a happy puppy right now.
 
From his Auntie Jessica:
Gus had so much fun today! He looked so happy rolling around in his bed when I was saying bye! I’m sure he’ll take a long nap today! See him soon.
Best, Jessica
 

Today’s BORKING REPORT

Today’s BORKING REPORT…

This morning was a bit sad because I headed out to work and well, Gus did what he always does when I leave at the early hours of the morning… he heads to Jenn’s room to crash. I told him I was sorry and that I promise it’ll be okay. He also toddled back out to tell me the Evil El Asshole was in our bedroom and life was unfair.

I told him I agreed with that. But that Badger would leave him alone if he crashed in his doggie bed.

Andi was there this morning to kit the Potato up and from the sounds of it, while he was ready to go, he’s gotten a bit too much treats. So, we have to be diligent about not turning him into a sausage.

From His Auntie Jessica:
Gus had a fun walk! He got tired barking at everyone so he didn’t want to walk too far. Once he laid down and wouldn’t keep walking, we turned around and came back home. See him soon!

Monday’s Bork

Today’s BORKING REPORT!
The Potato spent the weekend supervising all of the activity in the house and was the project manager for many people. So today, he ventured out again and promptly began telling his Aunt Jessica all about his weekend and probably his new dog bed.
Life is very exciting for the Potato… including a NEW KIND of treat he got from his Aunt Meegan. He came back happy, tired and thirsty… and now he’s snoring away on his bed.
And he got the carpet a bit damp from drinking water and his paws are wet.

From his Auntie Jessica…

Hi Reece,

It was nice and cold out this morning so Gus didn’t get too tired! He had fun rolling around in the grass and he also did go poop today! There were a few kids playing in a bouncy house that were smiling and waving at him, so he said hi back and did lots of borking! I’ll see him next week.

Best, Jessica

Friday Borking Report…. And So Many Changes

Today’s BORKING REPORT!
There’s a LOT of activity here and the Potato is very chill and happy. BUT today became even better because…. BORKING AND AUNTIE JESSICA!

He hit the ground borking and came back happy, covered in pieces of damp grass bits and just generally pleased with himself. He came in, danced around, drank a lot of water then crashed.

So… it’s a GOOD Potato Day.

From his Aunt Jessica:
Gus had a fun Bork this nice Friday morning! There were a few dogs walking off their leashes but they stayed away from Gus so it was all good. I hope he’s having fun with all the people over!

Best,
Jessica
