Frankly Freddie, to the Human Rescue – Dogs of Blogs, Day 22

Dear Freddie Fans,

My human editors P&J have been derelict in their assignment to post a dog-a-day for the Dogs of Blogs*.  Being ever the resourceful roving reporter I am helping them getting a leg-up in their well-intentioned endeavor . . .  22 days worth of dogs.

The Sarasota Dog Walkers walk large squads of dogs during their midday pack program. At the end of each walk, a group photo is taken.

Doggone Well Done Dogs – Day 1

Dogs of Blogs, Frankly Freddie – Doggone Well Done Dogs

Dear Freddie Fans,

Peggy & Judy (who I shall refer to as P&J to minimize typing paw pressure) just started a series called Well Done Women.  I have no problem  recognizing women . . . but it is a bit sexist of them to exclude males, of which I am one.  This post hopefully will remedy P&J’s over-sight, not to mention their reputation.

What’s a “Doggone Well Done Dog”?

  • She or HE has weathered years of human’s life experience.
  • She or HE has navigated changes – whether by choice, chance or necessity – and continues to adapt to human idiosyncrasy.
  • She or HE contributes to the world by caring for humans, both female and male.
  • She or HE is curious and open to having new tasting experiences.

My first DOGGONE WELL DONE DOG is Freddie Parker Westerfield

Freddie Parker Westerfield, CCT, RET. (Certified Canine Therapist)

After spending decades (in dog-years) as a psychotherapist in private practice, Freddie has not rested in retirement. He is a  Certified Human Trainer, Editor-in-Cainine for Freddie’s KNEWSletter, intrepid roving reporter and columnist for MAXyourMIND & CURIOUStotheMAX.

Here is one of Freddie’s intrepid reporter posts which reflects his unflagging attempts to help humans.  To read it in its entirety  click on the title:

Frankly Freddie – SIT!

I’m a sit expert and here to teach you how to stop sitting like a nut (literally and probably figuratively) . . . a cashew nut, and sit like me.

My human authority is Naomi Khan who knows what she’s talking about cuz she’s a spine surgeon.  She told me that most humans tend to round out their backs when they sit.  When your spine is in an improper position you’ll tend to have more back problems.  Listen to me!

Sitting like a cashew nut can damage the disks in your spine that act like little shock absorbers. This can cause the disks to degenerate, or for one side to bulge.  It can push against nerves, causing pain, or even rupture.  Ouch!

You can protect your disks by straightening the cashew.

Butt out!

Jean Sherer (another of my authorities) says your culture focuses on trying to stick out your chest (which might make you think you’re important) but doesn’t help your back.  Stop sticking your chest out and change the position of your pelvis, or butt.

“Sit up straight,” doesn’t mean to stick your chest out. Instead, stick your “tail” out, like me.

Proper sitting, head up, tail out.

Dogs are incredibly likeable creatures
with many commendable features.
They sniff and they lick
and rarely get sick
whether named Freddie or Duffy or Peaches.

(couldn’t find a name to rhyme with features)

I Ain’t No Fool Day, Commentary by Max

Dear ALL My Best Friends,

You human’s have no shame and warped senses of humor.   We’d be fed up with you if we weren’t fed by you.

On April 1st for “fun” you play terrible jokes on each other, too terrible to mention.

Trixie

On the other paw, We understand that you have many limitations (as evidenced by the fact that you are not easily trainable) and do the best you can.

Ozzy & Duffy

I propose that April 1st from here on be declared

 

I Ain’t No Fool Day.

Here are the 3 rules for I Ain’t No Fool Day

  1. Only Humane acts of loving-kindness are allowed. NOTHING CRUEL or MISLEADING.
  2. You are to spread love.  If you aren’t sure how to do this anymore watch us.
  3. You are to be grateful that we know how to give and receive love (and continually model it for you hoping you will catch on) by rewarding us profusely with our favorite treats.
  1. Lily

Lickingly LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL yours,

The Max

P.S.  We’re waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiting for #3
