This is how Joseph stops Brady from sitting in the blue living room chair with him!

This morning, I was able to watch Brady in our living room for almost three hours or so.  I usually sit in the blue living room chair whenever I watch him during the day … and he likes to be close to me whenever I sit in that chair.  On some occasions, he has been able to sit in the blue chair with me … or he is able to sit in it by myself.  He has done both of those things successfully in recent months, but, lately, I’ve been doing my best to stop him from doing those things.  I don’t like it whenever he tries to join me in the blue chair.  I was able to pet him whenever he would try to steal the blue chair from me.  He was able to get that chair for a very short period of time today, but he did realize his mistake … and then he went over to the next chair.  I guess petting him worked to some extent.  He was sad that he wasn’t able to sit in the blue chair with me, but I had to do what I had to do.

Brady is between my legs!

IMG_20200309_102029839
On March 9, 2020, Brady was near the blue living room chair while I was watching him that morning. In this photo, his head is sideways. Now, Brady’s head was between my legs while I was sitting in the blue living room chair. I stopped him from sitting in the blue chair with me at that time.

On March 9, 2020, I was watching Brady in the living room for a couple of hours or so.  Now, while I was watching him yesterday morning, I was sitting in the blue living room chair like I always do whenever I watch him in the daytime … and Brady has able to go in between my legs for a while.  When I snapped a photo of Brady doing just that, his head was sideways.  He always tries to get into the blue living room seat with me whenever I sit in it, but, this time, I stopped him from doing just that.  Brady can be pretty nosy at times!

I refuse to share a seat with Brady!

Late this morning, while I was in the living room, I was watching Brady … and I usually sit in the blue living room chair whenever I have to watch him during the day.  Now, while I was sitting in the blue living room chair, Brady was trying everything he could to either make me leave the chair or make me sit in it with him.  I was having none of it … and I asked him to leave the blue chair after he sat on it with me for a few minutes.  He would end up sleeping on the other living room chair for a few short minutes.  I refuse to share a seat with Brady!

Remembering Piglet Five Years Later

Five years ago today, my bulldog, Piglet, passed away at the age of 12.  Not a day goes by where I don’t think about her.  I liked Piglet a lot … and I would like to end this blog post by showing you photos of Piglet.

So, as we mark the fifth anniversary of Piglet’s passing today, please consider taking a moment to honor Piglet with a “moment of silence.”  I may do that at some point this evening.  She will always be a fantastic dog.

Joseph’s Top Blog Posts For February 2020

I am back on my computer again.  I started using it at 5:00 this morning … and, today, I’m gonna tell you about the blog posts that I will be writing down in February.

One of my blog posts will be entitled “I have owned my new Hewlett-Packard computer for one year!”  I will talk about my new Hewlett-Packard computer, which has been in my house for nearly one year, in a blog post this month.  It seems like I just bought it yesterday.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Remembering Piglet Five Years Later.”  In the blog post, I will talk about the five-year anniversary of the death of my bulldog, Piglet.  Piglet, who was my bulldog, died nearly five years ago at the age of 12.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “Joseph is still ‘super’ three years later!”  I will talk about my grey Superman T-shirt in the blog post.  I have owned it for nearly three years.

Another one of my blog posts will be entitled “7,500 Views And Counting.”  My blog will hit the 7,500-views mark … and, if it does hit the 7,500-views mark this week, I will talk about it in a blog post before this week is over.  Of course, it is possible that it may have hit the 7,500-views mark while I gave my computer a break this past week, so I may have to say that it has been seen at least 7,500 times in the blog post this month.

I will also write my 1,300th blog post this month.  It could be about a person, a place or a thing.  What do you think it will be about?

I will also use my blog’s features in February.  Let me tell you how I’ll be using them this month …
Joseph’s Flashback-I remember going to the pool in Scott Park years ago!
Joseph Has A Question For You-Should I listen to WESA on my clock radio?
Joseph’s Moment Of Peace-I need some “me time” in my “computer room” at 6:00 on weekday evenings!

Brady is riding with me in our silver truck!

This afternoon, while I was riding home from work, Brady was riding in our silver truck with me.  We both sat in the front seat for several minutes.  The ride home from work was an interesting one, to say the least.  You might say Brady is a fantastic passenger, to say the least.

On January 17, 2020, while I was riding home from work, Brady rode with me in our silver truck. Brady is a fantastic passenger, to say the least.

I hope I get more chances to ride with Brady in our vehicles in the future.  In a way, it makes my rides a little bit more enjoyable.

“I want to sit in that blue seat!”

For the first time in several days or so, I was able to watch Brady in the living room for quite a while this morning.  I was sitting in the blue living room chair while I was watching Brady … and, while I was sitting in that chair, Brady came over to me … and he put his head back while he was in front of the chair.  He was thinking, “I want to sit in that blue seat!”  Now, on a few occasions, he has been able to steal the blue living room chair, but, today, he was not successful in taking that chair.  You have to be firm with the dog, but not too firm with him whenever it comes to sitting on chairs or couches in the living room.

On January 13, 2020, Brady put his head up while he was in front of the blue seat in the living room. He’s thinking, “I want to sit in that blue seat!” He didn’t get to sit in it while I was watching him this morning.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: My bulldog, Brady

Can you believe it?  We have owned Brady, who is our English Bulldog, for about 9 1/2 months now.  It seems like he just came to our house yesterday.  Well, today, I will tell you why Brady relaxes me in a big way.  Yes, you heard that correctly … Brady sometimes relaxes me in a big way.  Well, I guess you could say that looking at Brady is relaxing to me … and it’s even more relaxing whenever I’m able to watch him for a while during the day.  So, while Brady can make me feel uneasy at times, he can also make me feel relaxed in a big way.

I hope you guys feel relaxed whenever you see photos of Brady.  Brady also relaxes me in a big way, whenever I see him in photos or in person here in my house.

Brady Is One Year Old Today!

Today is a very special day for one of my relatives.  My bulldog, Brady, who first came to our house in late March, is turning one year old today.  He is getting better with each passing day.  Now, this March, he will celebrate his first year in our house.  I hope you guys still like Brady as much as I do.

Brady loves to relax!

Since March of 2019, Brady has been at our house … and, if there’s one thing that Brady is good at doing, it’s relaxing in the living room.  He will either relax on the couch, on the floor or in one of our living room’s chairs.  This past Thursday morning, Brady was relaxing on one of our living room’s chairs.  Luckily, it wasn’t the blue chair that I sometimes sit in.  It’s the other chair that’s in the living room.  I snapped two photos of him relaxing in the living room’s chair.  His paw is on the chair’s arm in both of the picture … and he is actually sleeping in both of these pictures.  While you look at the photos, just think about how cute Brady is while he relaxes on a regular basis.
