Random Thoughts From Dion

Mr. Dion DiPoochy is our nearly-11 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel,

and a most beloved member of our family.

Today, he blogs.


Dion, in his own words:

You know how sometimes you lie on your back with your legs all floppily,
and just sort of air out and think deep thoughts?

I do that a lot.

And I wrestle with deep philosophical questions, cause you know my mind is always
going a mile a minute even if my body is slumped on the sofa.

I think about things like . . .

How come people put clothes on their dogs?
Don't they know that, unlike humans, we are not ashamed of our nekkidness?
Which is probably because we're so darned much better looking than humans.

When we lick people, why do they mistake it for a kiss?
Don't they know we are tasting them, and just haven't found a really delicious human yet?

Why are the most delicious humans usually mailmen?

When the humans say, "Dion, you smell!" what is the proper way to thank them?
Or are they just being polite?

Why isn't it disgusting when they "go" in the house?

Do cats have brains?

What's so great about colors, anyway?

And most importantly of all . . . Why don't we have pockets?

Now, time for more deep thoughts.
Do Not Disturb. . .

Dion would be very appreciative if anyone has answers to those important questions that clearly give him sleepless nights, and days, and . . . Zzzzzzz....zzz..zzz..zzz

Have a lovely day! -- Cass, owned by Dion


  1. Dion -- I wonder the same things, too. By the way if you come by my yard, I've left you some mail.


  2. Dion--
    You DO ask some very interesting questions.
    I would especially like to know why you don't have pockets?


  3. Sorry Dion, can't help you there, but my Rosie would probably like to get into a deep discussion with you.

  4. Look at those eyes--he can ask anthing he wants to ask! That Dion is real thinker of deep thoughts!

  5. Dion you are darling! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

    My cat Mr Chestnut said to tell you "yes". He!

  6. I love Dion!

  7. Dion, you just made my day!! And I hope your human grandpa is feeling better

  8. hi, really sorry to hear about your dad being in the hosp, hope its not serious, although at that age anything is serious, I will pray for him, also, I love Dion, now go and give that baby a cookie for the great post. :)

  9. Dion: My name is Murphy and am also a Cavalier King Charles. I think I may have the answer to the pocket question. Please excuse what I am about to say. If I had pockets I would fill it up with bunny poo. I love bunny poo! I always get yelled at when I go near it. I just look at them with my big eyes, wiggle my tail and I they forget everything. We are just so good looking. Have a nice day - off to eat bunny poo!

  10. Dion,

    These questions are certainly important. Have you tried google?

    Beautiful dog!


  11. Makes me want to run out and get a Cavie but then I would be considered a hoarder and they would put me on a lifetime show.

  12. Awww! What a sweet face to see while drinking my morning coffee. When you find all the answers let us know.

  13. So adorable and I had to laugh at the pocket question:)

  14. Dion, you need your very own Blog!
    You would have mega followers, human, dog and cat!
    You could have wonderful giveaways.
    Everyone loves to win Milk Bones and squeaker toys :)
    Think about Zeke, Sadie-Louise, and Baby Girl are begging you for The Dion Blog!

    Oh, and Dion...tell your Mama I am having a giveaway. Thanks, buddy!


  15. What a GREAT post! We have a 2 year old Cavalier that looks just like Dion!

  16. I'm so impressed, Dion, at how well you blog with your EYES CLOSED!

  17. Hi, dion is soo cute....Kathy

  18. The whole floppy thing cracks me up. Our cat never, ever did that until he saw our neighbors cat do it. Then it became the cool thing to do.
    Be careful Dion or some cat will mail you to Alaska while you are sleeping.

  19. Dion, you slay me! I'm sorry I don't have the answers to your questions, but I have a favor to ask you. Would you be a mentor to my puppy Chloe? She needs to learn how to have quality thinking and dreaming time on the couch. As you are a master at that, I will accept no other. And yes, I agree a Dion blog is in order. Then maybe you could dedicate one post a week on doggie edicate. A "Dear Dion" of sorts. ^**^

  20. Lets make that read etiquette, not edicate. Wow, excuse my New York pigeon spelling! It suddenly hit me I was way off on that one. :)

  21. You could make all future posts about Dion...he's a furry doll!!! ...and a great thinker...puppy kisses from Zoe :-)
