You Too Could Be A Watchdog (Maybe)

Lulu: “Hey, Bean, do you think you can teach me how to be a watchdog, too?”
Bean: “I don’t know. I think being a watchdog might be kind of an intrinsic thing. Sort of like being able to work the squeaker in a stuffie.”

Office Visit

Lulu: “You should’ve let me shred that letter. Now we have to go talk to our lawyer.”
Bean: “So shredding mail you don’t like means you don’t have to deal with it?”
Lulu: “Yes, of course. But it’s too late for that now I’m afraid.”

Lulu’s Patio Pets: Kavorting With Kittens

Hello friendlies! Lulu here, with a little clips from the time not long ago when one of Dada’s cousins brought over some kittens she was taking care of. Dada’s cousin is involved in cat rescue and often has many cats and kittens of various ages that she is keeping until they can be transitioned to foster or permanent homes. In this case, the kittens were just about to exit the stage of being “bottle babies”, so they were very small and needed to eat very often. Oh, and they smelled very interesting. So I decided to adopt them as my own babies, at least while they were here. Have a look and see!

Coffee Run

Ninja Hedgehog Commander: “What are you all doing back here empty-pawed? Didn’t I send you to check out that new coffee shop everyone’s talking about?”
Norman #1: “We found it. It’s in the backyard at the house where Dennis used to live.”
Ninja Hedgehog Commander: “Okay, so just give the fluffy dog that looks like Trixie but isn’t Trixie a belly rub, and steal the coffee when she falls asleep.”

Observed Around The Backyard

Mr. Nibbles: “You look perturbed, friend Lulu.”
Lulu: “Java Bean set up a coffee shop in the backyard and I didn’t even notice. I feel like I’ve failed in my duty as a watchdog.”
Java Bean: “So what can I get for you cats?”
Chaplin: “Two catpuccinos with extra foam, a bird muffin and a lizard muffin, and a bowl full of moths.”
Java Bean: “Uh-huh. So the only one of those things I have anything close to is the catpuccino.”
Chaplin: “I bet Starbucks has them.”
Java Bean: “I bet they don’t.”

The Tour, Day 4: The Patio & Beyond

Lulu: “Now this is the patio, which is the gateway to the backyard, where … Hmm, I don’t remember that rustic bean bag chair being here before.”
Java Bean: “Oh I brought those with me from Mexico.”

Lulu’s Lawn Life: Gophillas In The Mist

Hello friendlies! Lulu here with another lawn life video! This time it’s a clip about how I like to spend a foggy morning out in the backyard communing with nature. Or, you know, trying to catch nature and eat it, which amounts to the same thing.

It may look like I’m doing nothing, but believe me, I’m hard at work listening for gophers moving around underground. It’s not easy when the birds are making such a racket, but if you have the right kind of focus—and doggy hearing—you can do it.

Charlee: “We heard lots of birds, but we didn’t see any birds.”
Chaplin: “Very disappointing. Zero stars. Would not watch again.”
Java Bean: “When do I get to start appearing in these videos?”
Lulu: “Patience, grasshopper. Dada has a backlog.”

So remember, friendlies! Nature gets up early, so if you want to catch it and eat it, so do you. Until next time, this is Lulu, rolling over and out!

The Tour, Day 3: Cats

Lulu: “So, Java Bean, these are the cats. Remember, you met them in the conference room at the end of your interview?”
Java Bean: “Yes, of course. One of them is a boy and one of them is a girl but they both have beards so it’s hard to tell which is which.”
Chaplin: “A beard? As if. I have a soul patch, thank you very much.”

The Tour, Day 2: The Kitchen

Lulu: “This is the kitchen. It’s where food preparation takes place.”
Java Bean: “Food, eh? Funny, it doesn’t look like a taco truck.”
Spicoli: “Did someone say ‘taco truck’?”

The Tour, Day 1: Television*

Java Bean: “What’s that thing? It must be important since it’s in some kind of shrine.”
Lulu: “This is the television. It’s full of monsters and zombies and aliens and superheroes and other very dangerous things.”

Lulu’s Living Room Life: Time To Eat The Cardboard

Hello friendlies! Lulu here, with a Living Room Life clip from before The Bean arrived! In this video you will see how I entertained myself prior to having another dog to wrestle with and chase around. My strategy mainly involved attracting Dada’s attention so that he would play with me and rub my belly.
