Champ Got Tagged!

One of my "GrandDogs", Calie, at Walk With Me By Faith, tagged Champ, with a fun little game. He is very excited to play along!

Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person that tagged you.

2. Post the rules on your blog.

3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.

4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.

5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

Champ wants to tell you a few little random things about himself so I am turning my blog over to him at this point:

1. I stay outside during the day (while my parents are at work) in this really awesome cedar "condo" that my Dad built me about 3 1/2 years ago. It has a little veranda on the front of it and hardwood floors throughout.  I have a nice thick fleece bed inside that is filled with cedar shavings to keep me warm and make me smell absolutely irresistible!  (I love it when my Mom calls me "Champster" since I smell like a hamster after having been in my house!)

2. My parents taught me as a youngster, to always say my blessing before I eat.  I know not to touch my food until after I hear the final words, "In Jesus' Name. Amen." Sometimes when they get busy after they have prepared my food, I will sit there for what seems like FOREVER waiting to eat my food! Finally, they will realize we haven't prayed yet and at least say "In Jesus' Name. AMEN," so I can get on with my meal.  Don't they know I am starving?!?!? 

3. And speaking of eating...NOW they have me on this "Light" dog food!  What's up with that? Do they think I'm getting a little pudgy or something?  I wonder have they looked in the mirror lately? I think I am looking pretty good for a 56 year old man!!!

4.  Over the years, I have been FORCED to share my home with several cats, but I currently have to share it with Lewis--the biggest 9 month old cat you have ever seen! (Wonder if they have HIM on "Light" food?) He walks around like he owns the place and HE is able to get all up on all the furniture, but NOT ME!  OH, NO! I get yelled at if I even THINK about getting up on my Mom's furniture! 

5. And...get this....I even have to share a room with Lewis!  Thank goodness my parents finally upgraded me to a king size bed not too long ago so there's room for both of us.

6. And finally, (I don't mean to brag) but I am seriously one of the best Frisbee players around -- especially in the Senior Division!  I can run circles around my younger cousin, Turk!  I am still working with him trying to teach him some of my techniques!

All in all, I'd have to say that I lead a pretty good life!  I am well-loved by my mom and dad and my entire family!

What a fun little game!  Thanks for tagging me, Calie Girl!

Unfortunately, I do not know 6 other blogging animals to tag for this game. Several people I know have already done this little pet meme, and the only other people that I know their pet names have already been tagged by Faith

But, if you have a pet and would like to play along ---that would be great!  Just leave me a comment and let me know you are joining in, because I would love to hear what your fur baby has to say!

Jacquie said...

That dog house is AMAZING!!!!! What a lucky dog.

My favorite part was how Champ won't eat until y'all pray. What a testimony!!

Cute post.

Faith said...

Love it!! That Champer-doodle is one good doggy. I do love that he and Lewis share a bed...too cute. And he does have quite the outdoor set-up for a doggy. His mom and dad sure do love him, and so do we!

Jenna said...

SO cute!! You are quite a guy, Champster.

Robyn Beele said...

That is the cutest thing ever! I may have to do this!! I love that he has to hear a prayer before eating!!

Amy E. said...

Rebecca Jo said...

And how awesome is that he waits until he hears those words... thats fantastic!!!! See - another reason why I believe our pets are in Heaven!!!

What an adorable fur-baby you have!

How sweet! What a great dog :)

I love his little face while he's waiting for his dinner prayer. So cute!

How fun is this!

I love that dog house. Wow! I'd say he has a pretty good life & it's obvious how loved he is.

We are currently pet-free.
Our little almost 16 yr. old
"Molly" died summer before last. (SO SAD!)
She was an inside dog and was the best little dog anyone could ask for. If she were still alive, I'd definitely post about her. We miss her, but we are actually enjoying our freedom to go here and there w/out anything to tie us down.

Thanks for sharing. Tell your hubby he did a mighty fine job on the dog house.

This is just too cute! The dog house is amazing...very impressive.

Cortney said...

Okay, I am laughing so hard at the picture of Champ waiting for the blessing. HILARIOUS! I also got caught up on your Christmas posts--looks like y'all had a good one! I love your Willow Tree Nativity scene. I have had my eye on those for a while now. Your house looked beautiful for Christmas!

"Just Me - NC Beth" said...

Oh, how cute he is!! And his little house is very nice! You can tell he's loved for sure!

And he gave some really great answers too! :-)

Alex and Jill said...

This post made me LOL! I'm loving his dog house. Alex is needing to build Diesel a house, so I'm going to show him this pic. :)

Loved all of the pics from Christmas with your family (below) as well.

Happy New Year!
