Ahh it's whoopee doo to see you again bloggies!!! Sorry not to visit much this week. Me 'n Mom went away unexpectedly to Cousin Ruby's. Mom nursed her leggeded. While I used every minute to practise singing for next year's show. What one??? This one of course.

Yep. Gave my old bark box a very thorough tune up. Night. And Day. And every minute in between. Trying to outdo loud, noisy builders in the garden next door. Don't want to boast but I think Ruby's new neighbours must of been mightily impressed by my singing. Often heard 'em shouting me encouragement. Thoughtful eh?

Now would of been rude not to do an encore for the builder fans. So Ruby and I would give them our special double bubble duet perfomance. You can probably tell by looking. Ruby's a sonorous soprana.

While I'm more of a laid back tenor. With a fine falsetto finish. Course. Everybloggie over this side of the big pee is yappity yapping about this year's Britain's got Talent show. It's the final this weekend. Mom is backing the cool dude who, quote, is "sax on leggeds" And me??? I'm bb b b barking for Susan Boyle.

Mom sez she's not surprised. Thinks Susan and I have things in common. Funny that. Yeah??? We do??? Besides our fine barkboxes???

Wonder what that would be then everybloggie? Teee,he,heeee!!! (Only joking Susan barkin' loud and clear for you...all those builders too)


Gus said... are right, she looks a lot like a ginger wirey! Sounds more like Teka Toy, though

Hi Eric
We think we might have heard your singing or was that a fog horn?
Nevertheless we think you should certainly audition.
Did you see the tap dancing dog? Personally we thought that he should have got through to the finals!
We fear that Susan Boyle will not cope with the pressure.
You know how it is - small town girl meets the big city media and lets face it she is no spring chicken!
Our mum is with yours on the sax player - he is very watchable!
Eric if you want to look at forming a group we can certainly howl!
How about Eric and the bassets?
Or Eric, Bailey and Martha? Believe us our howling is music to the ears - our neighbours too encourage us - only the other night one could be heard trying to howl along with us!
So give the matter some though dear boy - after all if Susan isnt too old for stardom then neither is Bailey!
Of course Martha can take on the younger, blonder personna - we are a bit like Abba really.
love and kisses
Aunties Martha & Bailey xxx

Hello Eric...I thought I heard your voice all the way over that big pond & all the way down here to Florida! You DO HAVE TALENT!!! Keep opening that trap of yours cuz you'll most likely end up winning a million bucks!

Simba and Jazzi said...

Mummy is looking forward to the final. Susan is good, but Mummy is in love with the man with the clarinet.

Petey said...

Eric me boy, time to make a call to the groomer, hehehe. Maybe bleach those caterpillars a bit for a more sun-kissed summer look. I've been warming up my vocals as well over here because guess what? We have our very own pet mouse. Yep. It lives in the bedroom and Mica and I have taken turns making sure it gets sufficient exercise. It's taken up residence under the chair, in a box that contains a pair of YSL boots of Mommy's. She is not pleased, which surprises me, because obviously, this is a mouse with good taste.

The question is...will it taste good?

I'll keep you posted. May need to call in Aggie for reinforcements.

Your pal,


Simba and Jazzi said...

Eric, we will be going tidal on the boat again next week. Mon 1st June we will be Teddington for the night. Tues 2nd and Wed 3rd we will be in St Katherines dock and then Thursday 4th June we plan to moor up at Hampton court again. We would so love to meet you. Let us know if you will be around. Mummys mob is 07889313953, her name is Claire. Hope we can sort something out. Simba xxx

the 4 Bs said...

hey Eric! we will be interested to see who is winning your talent contest. of course, we think it would definitely be YOU, if only you were entered. Susan Boyle sings really pretty, but that little boy is good too. we're glad that you were doing lots of practicing with Ruby. she looks like she would be a great opera singer.


Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

he he. We heard you singing all the way over here in Farrr North Idaho, USA!! Oh sorry, Mommy says that was a screech owl! ahahahahaha. We think that Susan is quite a gal! Hey, let us know if you contact Mary (llama fiber)...wouldn't it be cool if your mommy knitted you leggings---maybe even out of your own fur!!
Smooches from pooches,
BabyRocketDog and Hootie


Heee hee.. I'm not sure I'd want more in common than the barkbox Eric....

Although I agree with petey... the caterpillars needs some attention.


tula said...

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Hehe "Uncle Eric" glad you keept the builders on their toes with your fine voice....think we heard you all the way up north!
Not sure about the eyebrows though....I hear puppies like to dangle from their Uncle's whiskers etc....ouch....time for a shave soon?!
Poor Susan is having a tough week isn't she, hope she's on the mend soon, meanwhile we're happy with who won...all that hard work!
Hope you're enjoying the glorious weather,
Love & slobbers xx

Toffee said...

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

Oh Eric...Mumsie's scrapin' herself off the floor laughin' at ur pic...dunno why...looks the same to us as usual...

Funny thing bout that...I just did a postie on Mumsie's brows this mornin' thinkin' she may not be laughin' after she reads it...heh heh heh....

We thought we heard ya barkin' across the have a set of pipes, Eric...

Love ya lots...Laciegirlie

TwoSpecialWires said...

Well, Eric. Now that the competition is over and we see what the British public favors, we were thinkin we oughta put a bunch of us together into a group of our own.... Dogversity. We know we've got a lot of good moves.... we just need to work on synchronization Whaddya think? Know any choreographers?

Jake and Fergi

Pee eSs. Mom REALLY appreciated your mum's peemail. Mom's really wanting to rescue a wheelie. She's scouting for one.... with a passion. She'll write more later. K?

Dewey Dewster said...

Oh Eric...

Poor Susan Boyle.....the voice of an angel silenced by all the pressure. She surecould sing....reminds Gram of Ethel Merman...lots of people probably don't even know who she was....

The only thing you and Susan Boyle have in common is ya both have cats.....

I swear we could hear ya singin' all the way across the Big Pee.....ya should be a shoo-in for the 2010 competition....

Dewey Dewster here.....

Stanley said...


You are COMPLETELY cracking me and my girl up (in FACT, my girl is about to wee on the floor... which she is now lying upon... after falling out of her chair).

For the longest time I looked at that last photo of you and all I could think was, "Wow! Now that's one creepy looking photo." until I finally figured out what you and Susan have in common.

By the way, I'm LOVIN' that photo of you and Ruby performing together! What chemistry! What stage presence! LOVE it!

I'll be catching up on all your recent posts now since my girl's been a lazy git for the past 3 weeks!

Goober love,
