The Continuing Adventures Of Jimmy Sad Eyes

with 4 comments

Sir Roscoe,The Royal Hound Of Acworth

Since I last wrote about Jimmy Sad Eyes I have a few more stories, observations and incidents to share with you.

Over the past month or so he has developed a habit of barking randomly at nothing or will continue to bark long after he forgot what he was barking at in the first place.  When he does this extended barking they are short, somewhat muted barks.  More like “b” than bark.  He seems to get aggravated at himself for this half bark but he can’t stop once he gets going until he is distracted by a piece of lint or string.

He has appeared to have caught on to the trick of locking him in the laundry room before we go out.  He now simply plays along while shooting us the skunk eye.  We may want to figure out something else because the last time we came home after locking him up, I found the makings of a rudimentary pipe bomb behind the dryer.  I also curiously discovered a charge on my credit card from for a book entitled Pipe bomb making for disgruntled pets.

He appears to have developed an aristocratic snobby streak also. He will never eat his dog food while we are eating our meal.  He waits until we are done and have washed the dishes until he is satisfied we won’t slip him something from our plate.  He has developed an affinity for delicately roasted Lemon-Herb Chicken with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand or a splash of white Bordeaux.   He has been reading my old copies of the Wine Spectator that I found curled up under his bed.  Other examples of his snobbery are:

On Tuesday’s when he is bored he dresses up in an ascot and smoking jacket and refuses to respond to our commands until we address him as Sir Roscoe, Royal hound of Acworth.

When he sees me put ketchup on my scrambled eggs, he gets up from the kitchen and I distinctly hear him mutter “Neanderthal” under his breath as he walks away.

I will keep you posted on the activities of this very special dog from time to time.  Have a great week.

  1. I thought you didn’t like the dog? Ha ha, they grow on you. Did you get the furminator?

    • Yes, that is a drawing of Mr. Peabody. I think he was part of the fractured fairy tales cartoon series.
