Wednesday: Ask Finnackles, Garth Riley's Contest, Award, Pet Blogging Games


I have a question fur you Finnacles... My brother, Ernie.... seems to love me... too much. He is always kissin and sniffin me and gettin in my face and wantin to lay REALLY close and he FOLLOWS me EVERYWHERE.. I have NO PAWsonal space!! ????? WHAT can I do to make him ADORE me a little LESS????

Love, Frankie

Dear Frankie -

This is a tough one.  I wrestled with this question for a while.  I wrestled with my squeakie toy, I wrestled with my Pops, I wrestled with my blankie.  Tough question!

I came up on a couple of suggestions.  For immediate relief, spray your bum with that GROSS spray that my Momma used on carpets for me to stop chewin'.  Then Ernie won't be able to get his face too close to you beclaws he won't want to sniff or taste that.  Butt, that also means that you can't sniff yourself for a while either!

OR you could wrestle him to the ground and make him cry out mercy!  That's what my Momma said her older brother did to her when she was getting annoying.

OR you can get one of those GATE things, and make sure he stays put behind it for a little while. 

But, in the end, he just loves ya!  Doesn't that make you feel good and warm and cozy inside?  And even though he is annoying right now, one day when he grows up a lil bit, he will become more independent and won't be needing you all the time.  And then you can say what a cool lil bro you have!  And then you do stuffs together without him sniffing in your business.  It won't be long...I am still a mere young pup and Momma says I have a mind of my own so Ernie can't be too long behind!
