5 Tips in the Art of Cool

"I am sharing five tips in the Art of Cool.  Use with caution." ☺


Bentley: “It’s Friday and I think that we have been serious most of the week.  In order to end your work week with a much deserved smile, I thought I’d answer some of my e-mail.”
Pierre: “Are you telling me that you received mail from a dog seeking advice?”
Bentley: “What’s so strange about that?  I’m a Basset Hound; we are a very empathetic breed.”
Pierre: “Okay, let’s hear why this poor pup is seeking your advice.  This should be good.”
Bentley: “This first letter is from a Westie named Pierre M. from somewhere in the bayou.  Dear Bentley, How can I be as cool as you are?  Your Biggest Fan, Pierre”
Pierre: “Hold on just one minute!  I did not write that letter!  You know I am waaaay cool.”
Bentley: “Tsk, tsk, tsk.  There is no shame in asking for help in the art of cool.  It is more than just claiming to be cool.”
Pierre: “Seriously, I did not write you that letter.  It is not even my paw-menship!”
Bentley: “Of course you didn’t.  *wink, wink  Dear Not My Pierre, The art of cool is not something that can be taught in most cases.  One is just born to be cool.  I can share a few things that will help you.
#1. As a dude, you must NEVER allow your nails to be painted.  This also includes bows in your hair if you go to a groomer.
#2. Only wear clothes that show off your physique.  This means no goofy clothes that your human tries to make you wear.  Examples include last week’s Halloween.  *The exception to this rule as always is being offered great treats.
#3. When being given an on-demand belly rub, it is important that your back leg doesn’t start that phantom scratching.  Controlling this is just mind over tickles.
#4. Never be seen with excessive drool on your mouth.  The girls don’t like slobber.  Also, NEVER let ‘em see you pant!”
#5. Decide before your human sticks a camera in your direction if you are going to cooperate.  Should you be feeling silly, don’t be afraid to show your playful side.  If you are trying to sleep and the human decides it is time to model, ALWAYS turn your head in the opposite direction.  If you refuse to pose, treats will be offered.
I hope this helps you.  Your Hero, Bentley ~The Cool Basset
Pierre: “Yeah, I still didn’t write the letter.  My #2 pencil broke during your #4 tip.  You said girls and I popped my lead.”
Bentley: “Don’t worry, I sent my response to the email address on the letter.  I recognized it as yours.”
Pierre: “I am plenty cool on my own.  I did not write that letter!”
Bentley: “I didn’t say that you wrote it…exactly.  If any of our readers have a problem that I can help y’all with, don’t hesitate to drop me a note.  Of course, you will remain anonymous, unless you are a White West Highland Terrier named Pierre.”

“Pssst, it’s me Bentley.  November is national Adopt a Senior Dog month.  We are counting down the reasons adopting a senior dog is a great idea.”

  20. OMD, you remind Ma of Kojak from that 1970's cop show! I am WAY too young to remember that, butts apparently he was all kinds of cool. Though, he was bald. And I see you have all your furs. Okays, maybe that was a bad example. do you like lollipops? ☺
    Anyhu, Pierre, I thinks you are all kinds of cool too!
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥
