Meme: Quirks Shared by You and Your Pet

Recently, blogger-pal Poetikat 'memed' detroit dog with the assignment to tell 10 random things about me. Blogger-pal Victoria at Teachings of The Horse has a meme out for 7 quirky things about your horse.

With the knowledge that I am in need of further obedience training, I've decided to take on Poetikat's meme and borrow Victoria's meme. Kind of like mixing chocolate with peanut butter and coming up with that famed candy cup. Who can resist?

Human + Horse = Dog.

So, what follows are 12 random quirky personal characteristics that are shared by both detroit dog and mentor girldog Bastet:
  1. Pizza crust is the most important part of the pizza; it must be chewed thoroughly and adoringly.
  2. A good full-body hug is not to be missed.
  3. Orange traffic cones are scary.
  4. The kitchen is the most important room in the house.
  5. Cheese is good.
  6. The beauty in life can be found while lying in sunlight or walking in the park, in the woods, or on the beach.
  7. Men take some getting used to.
  8. A good blankie is essential.
  9. The best thing about being in the rain, is coming in from it and having your head towel-dried.
  10. Ear rubs and nose rubs are not to be underestimated.
  11. Everything must be smelled; there is a world of smells and they must be appreciated (ok, detroit dog is there for the appreciation part).
  12. Happiness is a car ride; it foretells great adventures.

What personal characteristics do you and your pet share? Pick a random number and consider yourself memed.


  1. I love it! I would do one combining my reflections with my cats but I think people have had enough of my self-indulgence for a spell.

    I'm with you on the kitchen and the cheese - actually, I think they're all great!

  2. Great post, I can identify with all of your numbers and so can my two Australian Shepherds, Maggie and Murphy.

  3. I read these characteristics to my dog, Pepper, and we both totally agreed with you. Thanks for playing along and coming up with such a great post!

  4. Brand new on baseball, torture, Congress and human rights at Rudely Stamped:

  5. Loved your meme. :)

    I picked the number three and here they are concerning what personal characteristics do my pet (five pound bag of sugar toy poodle named HoneyBunny) and I share:

    1) We both love to hug and love on the ones we love (we are very affectionate).
    2) We both love to be scratched and massaged (she especially likes her belly rubbed while I like my back).
    3) We both love to sleep side by side. :)

    I hope you are doing well.

  6. Loved your post. Sure brings back the doggie memories!
