Q & A Time Again

Hi Y’all!

I’d like to take a few minutes to address some of y’alls questions. 
We had a rain storm  the other day.  I was asked by Storm and Thunder over at 2 Brown Dawgs if our bugs multiply and grow bigger after the rain?  They do grow vicious, even the Humans agree.  Vanilla is smeared on face, neck, and any other exposed human skin and put on my ears before going outside.  After a rain it grows hotter and more humid and miserable.  Steam rises from the ground like it’s smolderin’.  
The Sibes over at Five Sibes asked “did you chase it” “Did you chase it”? 
Sigh, no I didn’t.  I’m not allowed to chase the birds, squirrels, rabbits or cats.  My Papa used to hunt and expected retrievers to wait until the bird was shot then the retriever would go find it and bring it back.  Now my Human hunts with a camera.  She sure doesn’t want me chasin’ something she’s tryin’ to photograph. 

Remember this picture?
Most of you know I love to be brushed and vacuumed.  This one however is called Roomba.  It is a vacuum that vacuums while you dust.  Although my Human has it run daily in the bedroom where we all sleep whether she’s around or not.  Hope that answers your questions about it Thunder and Storm!
Dexter and Louis over at Schnauzer Days asked me if I am the Captain when I’m on the boat…sorry folks, my Human and I are just the mates…Papa’s the Captain.

Y’all come back now!


  1. You look like a first rate mate! And Roomba looks like it could be either your new best friend or new arch nemesis. ;)

  2. Hawk, you're such a good boy. We don't have nearly your level of patience. Hopefully it will come with age.

  3. Hi Hawk! You are very handsome and you have a good photographer on staff!!


  4. The biggest question is when you are coming back up to our cool airs.

  5. I think that our dogs would freak out over the Roomba! There's absolutely no doubt. Do you chase it?

  6. Vanilla? Ooh, you must smell delicious, Hawk! That's darn cute that you like to be vacuumed. Hey, I think you sic the Roomba on that gator!

  7. My oh my. Y'all okay with a vacuum cleaner. Now then, looky hear, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star is terrified of the lil' ol' vacuum and well, that sucks :)
    Y'all have a nice week, ya hear :)

  8. Thanks for answering our questions. Fancy vacuum, although it might be a little tough to vacuum our backs with it. ;) So you use vanilla as a bug repellant? Does it work for ticks too?

  9. Mom would be very upset when we attacked the Roomba. There is no way that thing runs around the house without a Sheltie assault.

    We tend to leave the birds alone, but the other creatures are always chased.
