Dear PaPa ~ A Letter

Dear PaPa,
It has been a very long time since you left.....6 hour 15 minutes and 45 seconds. I have done a good many things in your absence. I started the day by trying my hardest to keep the MaMa from making the bed, I even went to the lengths of throwing myself on the blankets and using the big puppydog eyes that you told me to use. This did not work. I then decided to go outside and secure the perimeter, and found a large black dog infiltrating my domain. I chased him away and growled, this alerted the MaMa and I was ordered back inside. I did not get any lunch. When you are not here they want me to eat out of the bowl on the floor ....eeww. When the mail came I did my part and brought it in the house for the MaMa, but she made me split my treat.......with .........Sherman. When the fire whistle went off, I pretended I was a big bad wolf and howled. MaMa laughed. Its just not the same around here when you are gone, I hope that your work will not keep you too late, I am not sure how long I can keep from eating....kibble.
I'll be waiting in the window.

Squirrel Attack

Boy, will I sleep better at night knowing he's on duty. That poor little squirrel might have caused alot of trouble if Yogi hadn't stopped him.

A Hard Days Work

After a long day of chasing squirrels, napping in the chair, torturing Sherman and doing laundry with the MaMa, Yogi cools off in the pond.

Pitbull Playdate

Yogi had a playdate, with a girl! To say that Yogi was happy is an understatement. They spent three days frolicking in the sun and sharing toys. It was like watching one of those sappy "Summer Love" stories but with alot more drool.

Strike a Pose

Yogi was more than glad to pose for the MaMa since she has NOT been taking pictures lately. He was begining to feel like a movie star with the camera on him all the time and them all of the sudden nothing. So when the MaMa said "can you sniff that flower for me? because it would be a go photo op." Yogi struck a pose.

Howling or Gargling ?

Yogi attempting to howl with the fire whistle, it sounds more like Chewbacca is gargling.

Bunny Fun


Now that Yogi has been allowed out of confinement he had to make up for lost time, everytime I turned around he was lounging on a different piece of furniture catching some z-z-z's. It was as if he had been deprived of his basic canine rights.

Pronunciation: \'skenk\

Pronunciation: \ˈskəŋk\
1 any of various common omnivorous black-and-white New World mammals of the weasel family that have a pair of perineal glands from which a secretion of pungent and offensive odor is ejected 2 an obnoxious or disliked person

Apparently Yogi has not read Mr. Websters dictionary because if he had: he might not have had a foamy vinager and soda bath, or had to sleep on the floor, or be cast to the outer most regions of the house!

I'm Not Listening....

I told him his PaPa was not coming home tonight, at which point he threw himself on the floor, covered his ears and said "I c-a-n't hear you.......".

Tuesday, April 7, 2009


Yes that is a Feline on the left and a Canine on the right.

Thursday, April 2, 2009


Now that its getting warmer Yogi is back at his old post, sitting outside and watching for the PaPa to come home.

Tuesday, March 31, 2009


Yogi still cannot take his eyes off of the Chicken McNuggets with legs. I pointed out that if he left them alone they would grow up and lay lots of eggs. He volunteered to collect them every morning. Hmmmmm...............?

Chick Flick

Today I brought home some baby chickens. Yogi has not taken his eyes off them. Apparently he's into "chick flicks". I'm waiting for him to ask for some popcorn and a soda.

But MaMa, its a Duck!

I told Yogi it was to gross and slimey to go in the pond. He listens so well.

The Truth about Puppies

We knew Yogi was the dog for us when we saw him hobble past us dragging the breeders shoe in his mouth "Hey! your not suppost to have that." were the first words out of her mouth. "We'll take him!" were the first words out of ours. We agreed in advance that we wanted a fiesty, active puppy, and it appeared that we got what we wanted.........................until the sun went down. Every night for two months this cute fiesty little puppy would have us up all night long cleaning up poop! He wouldnt dream of doing any of that during the day, because he had that reserved for sleeping. Yes, our beautiful little gem had his days and nights mixed up. And if it were not for the loving devotion of the PaPa he would not be here, because for two months the only words that came out of my mouth were "Take it back where it came from!".

Happy Birthday! (late)

Yellowstone's Yogi Bear was born March 11, 2006.

Argh! you be the devil dog!

I believe that the pirate called Yogi "the devil" dog, at which point Yogi pinned him to the ground and preceded to remove his stuffing. I had to leave the room, it was too gruesome." Argh! there goes me other eye!"

Pecking Order

Yogi would like to think that the world revolves around him, and for the most part it does. Except for one little thing...................the cat. As much as everything in him says eat her, he knows that if he tried it she would body slam him , fold him into a pretzel and bury him in the litter box.

St. Patricks Day

He was just a little bit dissapointed when I explained to him that he was a Labrador Retriever NOT an Irish Setter.

his note says "I'm not Irish but kiss me anyways"

Wednesday, March 18, 2009


One of Yogi's chores is to help the MaMa "pre-wash" the dishes. He's usually pretty good about doing this. Its when I ask him to make his bed and wash behind his ears that he gives me a hard time.

The Latrine

This is why children should not leave thier sleds lying around in the yard.

Monday, March 16, 2009


There are only a handful of things that Yogi will shred. For the most part he has been an exceptional dog as far as chewing and destroying things (that was Shermans vice). Yogi's downfall is Pulling the stuffing out of his toys, Shredding Kleenex click here to view evidence, and turning sticks into sawdust. Notice his favorite football is still in one piece, Good dog Yogi.

The Prince and the Pauper

This photo makes me think of the Prince and the Pauper. I noticed "Poor" Sherman licking the bare floor in the background whilst "Prince" Yogi gets his belly full of leftover eggs. It is common practice around here for Sherman to get the short end of the stick. However he is just as content to down a few aspirin and sleep life away than to compete with Yogi for all of lifes granduer. ;)

Like that would ever happen!

This is NOT Yogi but its funny because something of this nature would NEVER happen in this house A. because our cat would eat Yogi and B. because OUR cat would then eat whoever was videotaping it.

The Look

This is "The Look" that has gotten Yogi where he wants to be in life. With it, he can take the shirt off of your back. Literally, when the PaPa comes home at night Yogi grabs his coat or hat and prances around the house and then lyes down on it as if to say; "I own this too!". The whole time I am thinking "would you like me to order you a pizza your majesty OR make you an appointment at the spa?"

Sunday, March 8, 2009


This is a regular site on the couch. It looks like Yogi is posing for the centerfold in Doghouse Magazine. It may be that the PaPa needs to have a long overdue "man to dog" talk with him about discretion, privacy, and keeping his lil'bits to himself. Gee, what kind of a person does'nt teach his dog a little self respect?

A Bizzillion MPH

I have been trying to get a picture of this for a while, its hard to do considering Yogi is going a bizzillion miles per hour. He gets all excited and takes it out on Sherman who is NOT the least bit excited. He does a complete 360' and nips at his heals, something we have come to refer to as "Scootin". If I were Sherman I would lie awake at night plotting my revenge.

Would you like fries with that?

Its worse than having a two year old in the back seat. Everytime the PaPa goes by a McDonalds, Yogi has to have something, this time it was a 4 piece nugget.............and of coarse he had to have fries with that.

Eco-friendly seat warmers, no electricity required.......they work great in the car too.

An Alien?

There was some discussion this weekend as to wether or not Yogi is an Alien. I mean how else do you explain his "ability" to aquire any seat in the house without someone putting up a fight? He can de-throne Sherman with nothing but a stare, and Sherman says: "Okay I give up,you can have my spot. Sometimes when he looks at your food while your eating this alien ooze comes out of his mouth and it causes everyone to give him thier plate too! Just to error on the side of caution, we have given him a tinfoil hat to keep him from contacting his kin. Good grief what would we do if he called in for back-up!

The Mighty Kong

Do you ever get the feeling your being watched? The PaPa and the MaMa bought Yogi a Kong this weekend. Its a rubber toy with a hole in the middle to put treats in, that will Drive your dog crazy, Yogi has not yet figured out how this is supposed to work, I believe the whole point is for the Dog to chew on it until the stuff in the middle comes out, BUT Yogi may never get that idea. Instead he licks and slurps on it like a baby with its bottle.

Friday, February 13, 2009

It's a Girl?

This is what Yogi looks like as a girl..........he begged me to let him wear this pretty pink paper bow. BUT kindly asked that I not tell the PaPa , because he just wouldnt understand. Who am I to tell the dog he cant wear pink?

Yellowstone's Yogi Bear

This is why his AKC name is Yellowstone's Yogi "BEAR". He loves it when his MaMa puts peanut butter in his bone................maybe It would be better with honey?

Happy Dog

Finally the weather has broke! It's 40 degrees out, so Yogi and the MaMa went for an early morning walk to reclaim some old stompin' ground. I believe this is the look of complete happiness on Yogi's face.......... or is he sticking his tongue out at Sherman?

7 days

I knew something was up when I came home yesterday and Yogi stole the throw rug in the kitchen and carried it off to the living room. If dogs could talk, my guess would be that he was saying "If you don't take me for a walk soon, something really bad will happen........ Grr." It's true it has been 7 days since he has been on a walk...... so to spare myself from his wrath I took him for a run today(which by the way means I Love You in dog language), where is my kitchen rug?

Where's PaPa?

This is Yogi's best impression of a cat. He only perches himself on the back of the couch when he is waiting for his PaPa to come home. And since it has been 2 nights now that he has been gone, he is getting desperate. The night before he sat at the end of the driveway at 11:00 p.m. waiting in the cold.

Tuesday, February 3, 2009


ah...... its the old grab the milk jug and scoot 'round the couch eighty times trick. I was crushing a jug when he came out and stole it right out from under my foot. He has missed his walk 3 times in the past week because the MaMa has been sick. Can I just say that spring cannot come fast enough for a pent up little puppy!

Security Patrol

Part of Yogis daily routine is to do a "sniff" patrol of the yard, this bush passed inspection, whew !and I was so afraid there was something bad behind that bush.....whatever would I do with out his talents?

Melancholy Monday

So...... your a cute fuzzy brown dog and you just spent the weekend being treated like royalty. What should you do on Monday to deal with the loneliness when everyone goes to work...........? Well of coarse you shred Kleenex into as many pieces as possible! Duh

Saturdays are for Sleeping

This is what I typically see on a Saturday morning after I have been out of bed for awhile, any hopes of getting back in are lost. Yogi claims my spot right next to the PaPa as soon as my feet hit the floor. Do you know what happens when you try to remove a 70lb floppy dog from your bed?

Thursday, January 22, 2009


This is what a Yogi looks like after he has stuck his head in the snow and you ask him to sit for a picture. He IS three years old, that is twenty-one in dog years, you would think he could handle something that simple. Of coarse how many twenty-one year olds get to live rent free AND lay around the house all day.
