New Year's Resolutions!

Welcome to 2020! A new year, a new decade!

Lady said we needed to come up with some resolutions, or a word of the year, or 20 in 20. When we suggested eating 20 squirrels for 20 days as a 20 in 20 goal, she said we should probably stick to resolutions or words.

Lee is up first:

If I was going to pick a word for the year, it would be, joy. I will be turning 10 in a few weeks, and I want to continue to bring people joy. I want to feel joy when I am tracking squirrels, and trying to eat deer poop. Joy, joy, joy!

I further resolve to make sure my Lady gets a walk almost every day when she is not traveling and the weather makes said walk doable.

I resolve to let me peeps sleep in until 7 on the weekends in the winter (when we get daylight earlier, I want to be out spreading my joy!)

resolve to bark at all the wildlife I want to, when I want to, even it if it inconvenient for my peeps.

I resolve to make sure my belly gets a good rub every day.

I resolve if my peeps leave me in camp, to do a very good job at making them feel guilty about it later. 

I resolve to take my meds like a champ, but I make no promises about my behaviour (i.e. going through walls).

Zaphod is next:

My word for 2020 will be brave. Lady says that I have turned into the world's biggest suck. Hailey has taught me that the weather can be very, very scary. I will try and be braver in 2020.

As for resolutions:

I resolve to play with Precious every day.

I resolve to try not to lose a Precious.

I resolve to allow my people to play a lot of Precious with me outside, when there is not a lot of snow.

I resolve to be a little more patient with Lady when she is brushing me, because I can see the tumble-Phod's my fur makes all over the house, annoy her a little.

I resolve to be the best guard dog I can be and keep my peeps, and Hailey safe.

I resolve to always let Hailey win (or at least think she won). That will keep the peace in the house.

We both join our peeps in wishing you all the best for 2020 and the new decade! 


  1. Those are great resolutions! I love my almost daily belly rubs too, Hailey, and Phod, if you lose Precious, you gotta point him out to anybuddy who will listen so they can fetch him for you! I drive my mom crazy but my tennis ball is my most important possession!

  2. Sounds like you pups are ready to have a good year 2020! Keep a close eye on those tennis balls, Phod. They can be very sneaky.

  5. Those are wagnificent resolutions! Elsa says she's with Hailey on the squirrels and nearly caught her first one a couple of days ago. Surprised them both frankly. Happy 2020.

  6. What a bunch of great resolutions! I bet you don't have any problem keeping them!

  7. Ambitious resolutions kids. 2020 is going to be a GREAT year!

    Love and licks,

  8. Those all sound like great resolutions. We hope you all have a great new year.

  9. My dog and I are too lazy to make our own resolutions, so we are going to use yours. You're welcome.

  10. Still working on my word and since it leap year...I have extra day to work on it

  11. Great resolutions and we think you'll be able to keep most of them...well...maybe not 20 squirrels in 20, but we know you'll give it your best try!
