A Day in the Life of the MackMan

I'd like to thank the Academy, my beautiful girlfriend Ru.......

I got an award!!! My good buds over at
Bin Raiders of the lost Bark gave me this best friends award! Thank you Beans & Chips!!

I'd like to pass it on to ALL my great friends at DWB! You guys rock!

Anyhoo, I thought I'd post today about a typical day in the life of....ME! Here's how it goes:

6:00-6:05 - Woof down breakfast

6:05-7:30 - Tease Tia Lilly and/or Juana bird while mom gets ready for work

Maybe do a little blogging...

7:45 Get goodbye treats from mom- usually a hollow bone with a treat stuck in it or a Kong treat with a goodie lodge in so deep it takes me a while to get it out.

8:05-10:00 AB (after breakfast) nap.

10:00 - 11:03 Play with Paris and drag toys out all over the floor

11:04 - 12 Listen to N.P.R. and/or my CD's and/or do yoga

12 - 12:55 - YEAH! Mom's home for lunch!! If the weather's good we may go outside and kick the ball around or blow bubbles.

12:56- Receive one of these treats and try not to let Paris steal it from me:

1:00 - Bark at cat, or try to annoy her in some way

1:25- Smackdown on Paris Rain

2:00 Check out what Lilly's doing. Usually doesn't take long - she's either sawing logs or in Lala land

2:15 - 3:20 Nap and/or meditation and/or read the newspaper:

3:21-3:30 Bark at kids outside ( Note mini-blind damage):

3:31 - 4:00 Have a bird food snackie
Juanita's like "Hey, don't steal my food handsome Mack"

4 - 5 Watch Headline News and then cartoons

5:05 - Mom's home! Give sugars, but NO CUDDLING!

5:30 - Eat breakfast again and then go outside and do bidness

5:40 -Help mom cook and hope some food falls on the floor

6:15 - 6:30 Beg for her and daddy's dinner

6:30 - 7:00 Quite time while Mommy watches Entertainment Tonight, and/or I blog

7 -8 Play outside if the weathers okay or go for a walkie

8 - 9 or 10:00 Run around the living room acting like I'm totally hyper while mom tries to watch TV. She may throw a ball for me or we may play RLB:

9:30 - 10:30ish Review web cam activity with mom (this can be the worst part of my day)

10:30 - 6AM Sleep like an angel (May include snoring and tooting) and dream of my Valentine.....

Surprise!! It's ME!!

Hello!!! Paris Rain hereeeeeeeere!!

My Bubba is in soooooooo much trouble right now Mom wouldn't let him use the computer so I am doing a post on this TGIF day!!

First off I gotta ask, is this a pretty face or what???

Ok, Ok down to business. Bubba is in trouble hahahahahahaha. He loves to look out the living room blinds at the kitty that stays outside. Welllllll you know his head is so big and all, everytime he pushes the blinds outta the way to see the bad old kitty, he creases the mini blinds. Mom is partly to blame cause she always forgets to leave the blinds open. Now we gotta get new mini blinds! That boy is a MESS!

He is sulking in the kitchen right now. I kinda think the whole doodoo deal is funny!

Here I am telling him that mom loves me best.:

Mom wanted me to tell you about something she saw at the sexxxxxxxxy boxer boy, Kaiser's bloggy.

(Actually she stole their idea)


Anybody wanting to participate email mom or Mack at and we can exchange addresses. OK!?

It''ll be fun!!OK!?

That heart is just for Kaiser!!!!

Anyhowl, hope everybody has a super Friday. See ya later!

Ever have days like this....


For all you Bostons and Boston lovers here is another one:

It's from the "Rhymes with Orange" comic strip.

I'd like to give a shout out this morning to my new DWB friend, Opal. For anyone wanting to get a new puppy, she is the BEST, most well-behaved puppy you could ever ask for! Stop by and say hi!

Well it is unusually cold here on the Gulf Coast. I plan to spend the day doing this:

Have a great Sunday!

Saturday, January 19, 2008


Well the weekend is finally here! And mom has Monday off too! Woot! Speaking of wOot!, the beautiful, talented, Ruby has given me an award!!!!

I feel so honored! Thank you Wonder Rubes!! You know you make my day!

I would like to pass the award on to my pal Frasier !! If you haven't checked out his bloggy yet, it is really cool.

Also, the nice canines over at Niko & Bentley's place have tagged for the weird dog game!!!

The rules are you must list 7 weird things about you. BUT, there are so many weird facts about me I had a hard time narrowing it down to just seven.

The first one is REALLY weird. Very un-dog like:

1. I DO NOT like to cuddle!! If someone tries to pick me up like they are gonna cuddle with me, I bark and growl at them! The other day I actually bit my dad when I thought he was gonna cuddle with me. If I am really tired I may lay my head on mom's lap, but that's all she wrote.

2.I am a really big BT! I weigh 30 pounds (Every bit of it muscle)

3.Sometimes mom comes home from work and finds strange things coming outta my butt: her hair, pieces of plastic I shouldn't have been chewing on, etc,. etc.

4. My ex-girlfriend broke my heart. Lola, the boxer(??) mix next door moved and didn't say goodbye or even tell me she was moving! That's ok, I have my sights on someWONDER else!

5. I will whine like a little girly if I'm locked up in my kennel for more than 5 minutes.

6.My full name (Mack Thunder Beans)is a combination of three names my owners wanted me to have:

Thunder is what my first owner named me.

Beans is what my mom wanted to name me, but dad didn't see me as a Beans.

Mack, well everybody liked Mack cause I am big & strong like a Mack truck!

7.I am a rare gentleman -

When my sisters are still eating and I have woofed down my brekky (meal) I do not demand they give me their food.

Now, I would like to tag Taj the BC!!! He is a superstar Border Collie, you know.


Well, it is raining down here in Texas & I hate having to go outside to do my business. Here is a picture of poor old pitiful me looking so wretched (I am hoping mom will feel sorry for me):

Heehee, it works everytime!!

Thought for the day:

Second thought of the day: Tomorrow is Friday!
Pee S: I'm outta jail now! Woohoo

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

I'm in Jail


Yep- I pooped in the living room on mom's beige carpet while she wasn't looking.

Luckily they have internet access here.

Why I'm voting for Tad in '08

Well did you hear? TadPole is running for Prez. He's got my vote. Here are just a few reasons why:

1. His name is cool. Tadpole Pomegranite. It's so cool I can't even spell it right.

2.He was voted "Dog of the Year" in 2007.

3. He listens to his constituents:

4.He actually gets along with his relatives. And none of them have a prison record:

5. He's stylin. We haven't had a stylin president since William McKinley.

6. He can be tough when he needs to be.

7. His running mate is HOT:

Think. Vote. Tadpole in 2008



Mack's mom here. I just heard some really bad news about our new friend, Durango.

He went to the rainbow bridge yesterday afternoon. My heart is aching for Maryann.

I bet he is now playing with my beloved Emily, Sumo & Bella. Goodbye sweet Durango.

Ear junk and other stuff

Look what that cutesy Clover gave me:It is a best friends award! Thanks Clover! I am so glad you are my friend! I would like to pass it on to my new friends Weeny and Daisy. They are the cutest little puglets!

My other new friend, Petra Pie tagged me for the five questions game. So here goes:

1.. If you could be any animal, which would you be?

Wow, that's a tough one. Probably a Boston Terrier that lives at 909 Wimberly Street.

2. What's your favorite song?

"Who let the Dogs OUT?" 'cause my favoritest thing to do escape from the garage!

3. Where in the world would you like to live?

Again, I have it pretty easy on 909 Wimberly, so I am gonna say that.

4. If you could be any star who would you be?

Prolly Brad Pitt, cause he's handsome like me

5. Who should you be the spokeperson for?

Hmmm. Tough one. There's so many. I guess I'm gonna have to pick LazyBoy, cause at the rate I'm goin' it's gonna be a new sofa every year at my house.

Thanks Petra!

I would like to tag another new friend, Opy to play!

Also I have some news to report..

Paris has ear critters!

Yes that's right she has a stinky, yucky yeast infection in her ears, She had to go to the vet and gets some meds so she can get all better. Can you see the critters that live in Paris' ears:

This was taken right after a dose of her meds:

Well, I'm pooped, It's been a long week. Think I'll take another nap on mom's clean towels:

Make that formerly clean towels

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.............
