Interviewed by Rowan

Rowan did an interview, and he asked who else would like to do one. I said I would, so here are the questions he asked me:

1. I can see from your photo that you like chewing on sticks. I do too. Here's the question: Which is better, a good stick or a belly rub? Explain your answer. Well, this is a tough question... I think it might be a two-part answer: outside, in the wilds of the backyard, I really think I like chewing a good stick the best. But inside, on the couch or the floor or (when The Alpha's out of town) the thumb-havers' bed, I think a belly rub really is more satisfying. Both are nice relaxing and rejuvenating pursuits for dogs, though. I recommend them.

2. I am a Methodist too! It’s a good religion. But, if you could practice any other kind of faith what would it be and why? Wow! My other dog-blog-pals are UCC and Lutheran and stuff. The cat-blog-pals are mostly Presbyterian. Molly is always blogging about how she loves everybody and they let her come to church a lot, so I think I'd pick UCC. (I've been to church a few times, but not when very many people were there. Don't tell anyone.)

3. What is your favorite thing about being a dog? I have lots of favorite things about being a dog! Let's see... I can take a nap whenever I feel like it. I never have to wear pants, and in fact, I look rather stylish without them. I get to greet almost everyone who comes over. My thumb-havers sometimes make jokes about me needing to pull my own weight around here, but I know they don't mean it (I would be a horrible sled dog, with my hip problems). I get by just fine on being an extra-cute girl and patrolling the perimeter a few times a day.

4. It looks like sometimes your guardian uses your blog to post her own stuff. I would never let my guardian do that. How do you deal with it? Well, since she does all my typing for me (she is The Typist, after all), we have an informal arrangement that if she really wants to post on her own, she can. But not too much. She really just wants to comment on other people's blogs more than she wants to blog herself. Also, now that she blogs for work, it means less nosing in on my posts.

5. If you could tell your guardian one thing, what would it be? Don't worry so much! Even the stuff that doesn't seem good is actually okay. We love each other and God loves us, too, and that means a whole lot. All shall be well.

Thanks for the interview, Rowan!

Now, if anyone -- dog, cat, thumb-haver -- would like to be interviewed by me next, these are the rules:

1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave a comment on my blog saying, 'interview me.'
2. I will respond by posting five questions for you. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with a post with your answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Who's in?


Rowan The Dog said...

Those are very excellent answers, Cub. Thank you for letting me interview you.



Diane said...

great interview cub! I think Scout likes belly rubs best. but sticks, hmmmm that would be hard.

RevAnne said...

Cletus the WonderMutt and I are in, if you're looking for interviewees. I haven't let him blog yet, because nighttime when I'm home is our time and I usually don't blog then, but I can make an exception. Or, if you want to branch out to thumb-havers, I'd love to, Cub.
What a neat idea, Rowan!

Art said...

That was fun!

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

I loved all of your answers! Your Typist is the best!

Molly said...

I wish you WOULD visit my church! Wroo wroo!

DogBlogger said...

RevAnne, we will come up with something for you and Cletus over the weekend!

Bandy said...

Hi Cub, and 'hi' to Angus and The Typist!

Hope you don't have any hard feelings about my being a meanie to you when you visited, and will do an interview with me. I need something to break my writer's block!

Aunt Linda said...

I would love to be interviewed by you! I'll post my answers on my MySpace and everything!! Sweet!

Phoebe said to tell you she would like to be interviewed. The cats ignored me when I asked them. But you probably don't interview cats, anyway.
