Jeepers. Creepers. Want to hide my peepers. On my walks in the past couple of weeks. . .something strange going on. Wherever I put my paws I saw squares. Right before my eyes.

Squares like me. As you can see in this picture from Mom's favourest book. Bout the breed standard for Fox Terriers by Diana Chads.

Says "The Fox Terrier should fit into a square". Course. That's why I'm Eric Square Dog. Square Body. Square Face. Every bloggie knows that.

I'm 16" high from front paw to shoulder. 16" long from shoulder to tail. 16" from tail down to back paw. 16" from back leggeded to front legged. The Pawfect Square. Fitting nicely into this pavement squarie, tee heeee!

But these squares were painted onto the pathways. In my fabulous favourite orange colour. Or color.

For every dog to see. Wasn't me. As if.

Are they a K9 version of the hop-scotch game?

This must be for a game of "don't tread on the lines" Look how careful I'm being.

Holey Moley!!!! This square seems to have been pawtographed. Peep at that paw print . . .rules out the wheelies thank dog . . .hmmm, maybe it was me after all? What say you?

Then when I was wigging my wag this week. . .

I found this. My Orange Squares gone! Vanished ! Vamoosed! Replaced by big Black Squares!

WTF???!!! That's the expression my pal Tanner uses. I'm not sure but I think it stands for Wire Terrier Foxed. Yep. This one is. Or am I Eric Square Dog, Pavement Artiste Extraordinaire????? He,he,he!!!

Dear Eric [ ] Dog,

Hmmm, I guess my name should be Petey Rectangle Dog.

Your pal,

Petey [ ] Dog

P.S. I guess you could be Eric2 Dog (sorry, blogger won't let me make the 2 in superscript)

Gus said...

Eric, my sq. buddy...those street squares are not as pawfect as you ! They look more like wreck Tangles to me. So I think you don't need to worry about someone coming after you for making black spots in the street.


BenTheRotti said...

WTF indeed!

Maybe some not so square dog who was jealous of how pawfectly you fitted into the squares erased them to hide his shame!

Have a great weekend buddy,

Ben xxxx

You are the pawfect square dog my friend. We're kinda square too but a little bigger.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Eric!
They fix the streets in a very artistic way!
Now I know you are a perfect square dog!
Have a great weekend
Kisses and hugs

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Woof Eric

Aliens, we think it's space aliens. First the crop circles now the squares. What the heck is going on? Anyway, hope all is well with you.

Mango said...

Possibly your alien friends from the planet square have been trying to contact you.


Joe Stains said...

WTF is right?! what is going on over there? what happens if your human wakes up tomorrow and finds you have been turned into a black square? this sounds like a horror movie!

Dewey Dewster said...

Gee Eric…

We’re a bit slow on the uptake fer sure…had no idea that yer Square Dog status was becuz of the square fer the foxies……wow...glad ya told us…......we're tryin' ta figure out why we didn't know....

I really hate ta tell ya but I think the orange squares were fer fixin’ the holes in the street…but if it makes ya feel better ta think of ‘em as yer squares….that’s fine too…..the black ones make a big improvement over the orange drawings…..

Hi Eric! I saw your name on over at Asta's place in NYC & thought I'd come by & say hello....I'd like to RSVP for the Halloween Pawty please...

I'm sorry you think black labs are scary...I'm a black lab/newfoundland mix...but I'm not scary...or at least I hope you don't think I am...

Nice to meet you! See you at the Pawty!

love & licks,

Pacco de Mongrel said...

Molly and Taffy said...

Hi Eric

Funny thing about those squares where you live...we have lots of circles on the pavements where we live in Kent. We are definitely not round though!!!

the 4 Bs said...

hi Eric, those are very mysterious squares. it must have been someone sending a special message to you - orange squares. there's a deep meaning there, we just know it. and then replaced with black pavement squares. very very odd.


TwoSpecialWires said...

And to think we thought being square was a not so good thing! Now we know it's something to aspire to! We have a feeling Mom's going to be looking at us with a more critical eye, measuring us up, so to speak. And Fergi's gonna start looking for orange squares on the pavement... that's one of the playgrounds of her new world! Such a pretty one, with orange squares.
