Learning Our Manners


Mom has been working with me and Stanley to teach us good manners for the upcoming Blogville Valentine's Day  Ball.  She said she doesn't want us to act like we've "never been to town before" so she gave us a set of rules to follow.  She said if we follow these rules we will not get into trouble (or embarrass her).  When she said that, me and Stanley laughed cuz we know 87 different ways to get into trouble!  Anyway, here are our "Rules of Etiquette":



  1.  Don't sniff our dates' butts.
  2.  No eating off our dates' plates.
  3.  No farting in front of anyone else!
  4.  No humping at all.  (This specifically applies to Stanley, I am not like that.)
  5.  No "cleansing of personal parts".
  6.  Bark "please" and "thank you".
  7.  Offer our dates the best seats.
  8.  Be gentle Doods.
  9.  No growling (again, this applies to Stanley since I am very gentle spirited).
10.  Respect the older dogs and learn from them.
11.  Pee and poop outside - no exceptions!

So we've been practicing.


Murphy & Stanley


For Ernie's Eyes Only:  We thought there'd be 87 different rules - BOL!

  1. What if the "older" dogs break one of the rules your mom mentioned? Then what do you do?

    1. Mom says we have to learn to think for ourselves and handling those sort of things is all a part of growing up. Why do you ask Goose?? Are you up to something?

  2. Our Lady hasn't give us rules yet. I think she is just preparing for being embarrassed. Good luck learning them.

  4. OMD.... FRANKIE says he and I are gonna go over ROOLS today... Knowing HIM there will be 87 of them fur sure.
    I think since you BOTH have to follow your mom's LONG LIST of Rools... that means it is DOUBLED and that HAS to add up to 87 fur SURE.
    # 3 and 4 seem kinda unreasonable to ME. Hope I don't have to follow THOSE... BUTT when I came to #11 I got to thinking... Hummmmmm we have never been to this place before so... fur SAFETY SAKE... WE should "GO" together... like 87 times. What do you think?

    1. Oh Ernie, I hope the rules haven't doubled. That might be hard to manage, eh? I mean 87 rules is enough I think. Do you think there should . . . needs . . . to be more than 87 rules??

    2. Ya, I think you're right --we need to stick together. There might be 87 ways to get to this place.

  5. Hi Boys,

    It sounds like your mom is teaching you well. We girls will be practicing the rules too. You can never be too polite.

    I don't know what you and Ernie are up to, but it doesn't sound good. Be careful with that mischievous Ernie.

    1. Oh, Ernie is a good soul, just a little playful. Frankie just makes him look bad.

    Those are good rules to live by especially in mixed company.....however, when it is just the boys you can scratch, make obscene noises, and lick anywhere you want!!!

    Too funny. Thanks for the MOL

  18. Molly the Wally sent us here from Misaki's blog to see what the rules were for our big date for the Valentine's Day Ball...your rules are pretty easy to follow I think except for #1...how we all gonna meet & greet with no butt sniffing? It's the best ice breaker I know...
