Brinkley’s Corner: Voodoo Dust (Catnip)

Posted by on Nov 23, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

   Voodoo dust; dirt like substance, able to turn cats into dogs! That’s right my fellow canine lovers, you are hearing it here first; the cat’s have found a way to become dogs. And why would they want to be a dog, you ask? Why, for that matter, would any human want to turn a cat into a dog, why not just get more dogs; there are plenty of us in every shelter across the country? Why indeed? And as bizarre as this sounds, I propose these tiny flakes disguised in bags decorated with a crazed cat on the front—not to be mistaken for the bag with a crazed dog—is the culprit behind a grand plan to have more dogs with less responsibility! Let’s face it; we are...

Brinkley’s Corner: Life with Cats – The Arrival

Posted by on Jul 6, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

 What is this animal, they call, cat? It’s fast. It’s limber. It’s able to leap small children in a single bounce!  It’s ruining my life! Rumor even has it that humans once worshiped these feline devils. Yes, my fellow canines, this is what I heard, and I’m here to tell you that these diamond-eyed freaks  believe they deserve such reverence! How do I know this, you ask? Because three of these obsessively clean  pests have recently moved into my house, and my human have already fallen into a trance, no doubt hypnotized by the swishing of their tails! Why do we need them? Why are they here? What was wrong with the way it was before! I...

Blah-blah-blah-Brinkley. Blah-blah-blah-Brinkley. We’ve all heard our names called, and though the expression that usually precedes our name is lost in translation, we pause. Not because humans are so profound, but rather, because they’re unpredictable. Let’s face it, understanding our human takes time. Like the putting-on-the-clothes-to-leave routine, we’re thinking, cool, it must be park time. We race to find a favorite toy, all the while pacing from the bedroom to the door and back again. Then a realization dawns; we’re not going to the dog park! Does this sound familiar; “Don’t worry. You won’t even know...

Brinkley’s Corner: Teaching Your Human How To Play.

Did you know, we dogs sleep 8-12 hours a day? Sound familiar? Basically, when our human sleeps–we sleep. When our human eats–we eat. And when our human plays–we are always ready to play. Problem is, most humans don’t allow for enough play time. And us dogs really want to play. Play–eat–play–eat. That’s what we’re about. Now my Mom is a very busy woman. Dad too. But today, for the purpose of play, I’m going to share a little secret with you. (Tip: This is a dogs-only secret. Quietly distract your humans away from the screen.) There’s only one secret, really. But it’s guaranteed to get you more play...

Brinkley’s Corner: Life Is A Ball

Posted by on Sep 25, 2012 in Uncategorized | Comments Off

My name is Brinkley. I’m a two year old silver Labrador Retriever. My mama says to tell you I’m not a Weimeraner. I don’t know what that means but apparently it’s important, so, consider yourself told. Basically–I’m a dog, as you can see. The only title I care about is my name. It starts with a Brink and ends with a Lee. And when mom calls it, it usually means three things: Love, Food, or Balls. I love balls! As I think back to my first ball, which I think was yesterday or maybe the day before, I realize the importance of a good ball. I sleep with them. And that’s very important because I sleep alone. See I’m scared...
