Middle Name Meme

Maggie and Mitch tagged me,Eric,for the middle name meme.

Here are the rules:

1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name or your mother's maiden name).
3. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person (or blogge of another species
) for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged)


. . . is my middle name. That's 10..11..9..15 points. And I can probably place that onto the triple word score, yes, that's err, loads of points for me. Mom, MOM, no, stop, we're playing the wrong game, get back to Middle Name Meme for me me.

I hope your reading this thinking poor Eric newbie, the "Q" is wheelie difficult for him isn't it? Mmmmm, I'm thinking that too.I'm off to consult "Ogilvies Smaller English Dictionary Etymological Pronouncing Explanatory"

Here's me engrossed in my lovely book. This is what I came up with, it describes me to a T. He,he !

STUBBORN - of course I'm a Terrier
QUIRKY - I dare to be different
UNDERDOG - Ok I admit it, I'm not the Alpha in our pack
ARISTOCRATIC - Have you seen my Peeee-digree?
RASCAL - I'm a bit of a scamp
EXHIBITIONIST - love performing those tricks

I'm going to tag umm, oh, this wheelie is not fair, the "Q" again. I'm off to surf Doogle.


A little explanation before I tag as " Q" proved pawsitively painful so I've had to go a bit Eric Quirky. I'm tagging a lovely new friend - a 2 legged.I gave her a good sniffy check out and she seems to be a hooman of the highest order. Not only is she devoted to doggies but she bakes scrumptious cup cakes too. What could be better? Well her four pawed Layla seems to be the chief taster,that's what's better. Oh Layla,I wish I was you.

I urge,no command you, go fetch the Queen of Cup Cakes blogs for an eye popping dog -a - delicious feast. Your drooling tongue will be hitting the floor in anticipation, yummmmmmmmmmmmy cakey heaven plus some delicious choccywoccy ones to die for (though I suggest you avoid this by substituting carob instead) Do whatever it takes to get your hooman to tag along too. One look at those cupcakes will have them dashing off to your kitchen and lugging the Kitchen Aid out of the cupboard to bake up a batch for two. Ready? Race you there.

I'm tagging;-

WOOOOT!!! We love to be first on comments.

I'll tell ya, Eric...for a Newbie dog blogger, you sure sound like you've been doin' this for a long long time.

Where in the world did you get that totally cool book and what is in it?

Mumsie loves to play with words, and that sounds like it would be a book she'd love!!

Great post, Square Faced Guy...sounds like you are one typical foxy.

Oh, I'm not alpha in the pack here either. Not even beta. sniff

G'day Eric,
You did well with your middle name. My sissy Tess was tagged by Maggie & Mitch too but she doesn't know her middle name. We have to investigate.

Hi Eric!

Great job on the middle name game. You play and write very well for someone with a square head.

I also checked out all the cupcakes. They were bootiful, but I couldn't smell or taste them. Shucks!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Hi Eric,

Are we the only wires who haven't met you yet???

We're Jake and Just Harry, from South Florida, and we saw your comment on our friend Blue's blog.

We can identify with your unique middle name because brother JH here has a unique first name: it's Just and his middle name is Harry!!! Mom and Dogdad -- Joan and Jack -- and me -- Jake --- needed a J to complete the family. They read that your Prince Harry, when asked what to call him, said Harry, Just Harry. So if its good enough for Brit royalty, it's good enough for my rescue Itchi Brother.

Come visit!!!
