An Award and A Torture Device

Look at this super cool award Blue gave me:

Thank you! Now I would like to pass it to Ruby Bleu because she is yummilicious!

I have been tagged by Mona and her Mommy to play the page 123 game!

Here are the rules:
(1.) Grab a book of 123 pages or more. ( 2.) Open to page 123. (3.) Find the first 5 sentences & write them down. (4.) Then invite 5 friends to do the same.

"He tossed it on a square grill that had legs to hold it over the fire. 'Veloce, Veloce (fast, fast)' Angelo said, passionately explaining the secret to great Biestecca alla florentine. The key is high heat.Using local oak and a blower to stoke the coals, he claims he can achieve a temperature of 900 degrees F. Within minutes, the outside of the meat had seared to a golden brown crust."

It's from The Barbecue Bible By Steven Raichlen. My mom doesn't use this book near enough.

I tag anybody who hasn't played it already and wants to!

Nothing but the same old same old happening here. We did have a visit from cousin Katie this week:

We are always so excited to see her!

In other news, mom has this new torture device she uses on us sweet angel poochies when we "act up" (as if) :

Does anyone know the number to the SPCA??

That's all the news from Lake Wobegon. See you later, I'm tired!

Your cousin Katie looks like fun. Mom used to try to use one of the things on me but it didn't bother me so she quit.

That is a cat torture device! Oh, no!

Chef said...

Hi Mack. We've seen that page 123 thingy all over the place.. what's the point of it? Am I missing something here? Puleeeeeeese explain it to me!! Anyway, about the device. Mama's got one of those and has used it once or twice when I've been a real badass. Have you been bad, Mack? Go hide somewhere til she puts that thing away.

xoxo Chef

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi my Mack...thank you for my made me blush yet again! That torture device, yikes! Mom used that on me when I was a wee pup...I hated it...but you are tough!

Please give Cousin Katie a big lick for me the next time you see her. I like it when she visits me at my bloggie!!!!

Oh and you are soooo handsome when you sleep...I would just love to snug, snug, snuggle with you!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Lorenza said...

Hi, Mack!
Congratulations on your award!
My mom is thinking about using one of those torture devices with me because I tend to bark at people who try to pet me on the street! I hope she forgets about it!
Have a good night

Ferndoggle said...

I just catch the water spray in my mouth! Even when Mom puts vinegar in it.

Oh Mack. That's a really horrible picture of me. T_T YOU look adorable of course... As always.

Petra said...

You're smooching right up to Cousin Kate, Mack, and you both look happy!

Do you sleep in that position often? I never lay on my tummy with my back legs spread apart like that, but Motch's cocker Sadie did it all the time.

Amber-Mae said...

Love licks,

Interesting choice of books & if it's about bones, me all for it.

Lova lots...Mona

Clover said...

Hi Mack!
Congrats on the award! Oh no, sometimes mom and dad use that torture device on me too! Apparently it is not good to bark at the tv all the time...?
Love that last pic - that is one of my favourite ways to sleep!
Love Clover xo

Bella the Boxer said...

Mack...the phone number is 1-800-MEAN-MOM! If it's busy it's because I'm trying to get through, too. I've had my eye on some beef hot dogs in the refrigerator and my Mom won't give them to me. Mean Mom.

xoxo - Bella

Rudy said...

We've never had one of those torture devices; instead she used to spray really icky stuff from a bottle on things if we chewed on them too much, but that was for when we were babies. It's like puppy repellent and oh boy does it taste terrible.
Hey I bet you could find some kind of agility around -- it's not just AKC that has all the fun. You could try searching for CPE,UKC,USDAA, and other agility-type orgs out there. I was surprised! Mom's going to let me try CPE and do another USDAA one this spring. I have some Boston friends that really go to town out there in agility! They're so cute.

(maybe Mom'll let me do the 123 this weekend)

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Dad gets the hose out after the neighbors dogs when they run along the fence. I know better I go sit by Mom but that Louie he thinks the hose is a toy and drags it around squirting everyone. When will he ever learn..
PS. We did tell Baby Love hi for you...

Oooh, Mack.
My mom has one of those torture devices, too, and it makes me bark like mad! My breeder uses it on my mom and big brother. He needs it 'cause he's super barky and silly.

My mom stopped using that device and I've decided to go along with that decision and shape up a little more. Today I'm going to obedience training with Jane at The Dog Shop in Georgetown. Jane is really nice and I love walking with her, but she really commands respect. I call her G.I. Jane. After training I get sooo tired and I have to go home and sleep it off.

It's hard being a good border collie puppy!

Moco said...

The big red haired guy has one of those torture devices and he uses it when we bark. Don't you think he is pretty lame. We all know that we are sounding an alarm against evil.

Weeny&Daisy said...

Eeek! A torture device? Run Mack, Run! xx

Urban Smoothie Read said...

it won't be a torture if u love water....some pups even play with water hose...

The Brat Pack said...

Death to the evil squirt bottle!!!!


Ozzie, Rocky and Lola said...

That 123 thing is cool!
Just wanted to let you know we told Ozzie hello for you today! He sure appreciates your concern for him. He can't wait to come home and we are really looking forward to having him here. Hopefully by Tuesday! It's just not the same without my little brother here.

Fenway said...

Hiya Mack--

Fenway here....You asked about the Aussies. I learned that they are actually an American breed. Go figure that one out.

Anyway, they are the doggies with the really short stumpy tails and they are built differently. We border collies are more refined and lighter in bone I think. I really like Aussies, though. They herd, too, and are really terrific leapers.

Myeo said...

That spray is irritating.. we have tried snapping at it before.
