Okay now I get it. I think when mom says I am fulla beans she means I can be a real toot sometimes. My mom says all kinds of weird things, like "Thank goodness for badness or there would be no Mack"...she's just weird.

Also she has some realllly weird nicknames for me, one is Boston Baked Butt; one is Macky-Poo, and I better stop there. Does anybody out there have some weird, far-out nicknames?

Anyhoo, I must share with you a passion of mine. Maybe it can be called an obession. It is the R.L.B. or red light bug. I live for it. My mom calls it a "laser pen"; I'm not sure what that means, but alls I know is it is a small red bug that I can never seem to catch!

Here she is:

I think it is one of life's greater pleasures to try and catch this bugger! I try and try and run and run, but I still haven't caught it yet! Below are pictures of me hunting it (Paris can't seem to get it either). It's kinda hard to see the red light, but believe it is there somewhere!

Here's me trying to get it out of mom's hand. It just sort of disappears.

(Mom says please forgive her feet)

I think Lilly thinks it's a treat and wants some.

Here is another toy that totally rocks:

It's a really hard plastic bottle that unscrews at one end. Mom puts itty bitty treats in there and as I nudge it with my nose, the rope wiggles around and the treats fall out. Mom says she highly recomends it for heavy-duty chewers. And I am heavy-duty in every sense of the word.

Do you guys have any toys you're passionate about??

Before I go I wanna show you a picture Gwamma sent to my mom:

Mom calls it "Cup O Bostons":

I don't think I was ever that wittle.............

Mama wants to know if you've ever never heard of something before, then someone says something about it and then all of a sudden you see and hear about it all over the place? That's what's up with the laser pen. Her co-worker was just goin' on about it the other day, and now here it is on your blog!

Personally, if it can't hold treats, I don't want it!

Blue said...

Well, you certainly have fun playing!
And the cup of bostons is so cute!

We don't have a red bug, but mommy uses something called a flashlight. I get very upset when I can't get it but still love trying.

Hi, Karen here: that toy looks great, I think I saw it on Archie and Agatha's page. Balboa loves to chew, but I'm afraid he just go for the rope instead. Are the treats too challenging to get?

I forgot to say that I love the nickname Boston Baked butt, my mommy calls me Pooty Boy, Bubala, daddy calls me his little guy or stinky.

Hey, Mack!

Your mama has some pretty good nicknames for you. I love the Boston Baked Butt one. As for me, I mostly get Goober BOy, StanMan, or some derivative of the goober concept.

THat toy is cool. I'm kind of obsessed with my stuffies. I have 3 giant ones I usually drag around the house with me (Fernando my giant frog, a giant pink Piglet from Winnie the Pooh, and then giant Pooh Bear). They're all in the shop to be repaired right now, so I just drag my sissy, STella around sometimes.

That cup o Bostons is very cute.

Goober love,

Petra said...

Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

That is a cool toy Mack. Looks like it would keep you busy for a long time. Our mom loved the picture of the little Bostons. She has names for us too. She calls us Boston Butts and Boston Baked Beans and Boston Boyz. She has other silly nicknames for us too. We think she's a little goofy sometimes!

Clover said...

Hi Mack!
Those look like really fun toys! The toy I am most passionate about right now is my hide-a-squirrel. It is SO much fun!!
Love Clover xo
P.S. I left an award for you on my blog!

Mom says I'm full of beans too, but not when I'm tooting. She says that when I'm full of too much energy. When I'm tooting, she calls me tooters. Otherwise, she calls me Chicken, Tweety, or Twinkie. I really don't like Twinkie. Isn't that what you call someone whose kind of daft?


Ruby Bleu said...

Hey Mack!

So sorry I've been you know, I've been being neglected these days so I have to sneak on the computer. Anyhowl...I'm back.

Boston Baked Butt - BOL that is pawsome. Oh and I have a little red bug too...just haven't seen it around lately...maybe it's the know all the rain and stuff.

I like the cup o bostons...especially the one baby shoving it's paw in the others mouth!!! So funny!

Lots of Licks my honey...ruby

Gus and Louie said...

We're not sure what you actually call Louie's coat color, red merle probably is right. It is kind of red hair with a frost to it....

Hi Mack
I LOVE your treat bottle. I'm real ruff with my toys too and I like the idea of treats inside too. My mum has me on a diet at the moment coz I love my food.
That laser light looks a little tricky. I don't think I'd be able to catch it either.
The only time I would've been as small as one of the 'Cup O Bostons' is when I was a day or so old. They're mighty cute.
Love from Hammer
