Hello again! It's me, Dutch. 

Since our human decided 2014 is going to be the best year ever, I get to be here with you on Fridays from now on. Of course Pug doesn't think me "stealing" one of his days will make 2014 (or anything else) better, but I think it's a fabulous idea. 

Except for the taking pictures part. But for you, I'll do it!

I know Pug's been pretending to know everything about signs this week. And I don't know how much of what he said is true. But he was right about one thing: humans really do like sticking words on things! 

I am NOT kidding. 

Next time you go for a walk, look around and you'll see what I mean. Unless you live in Sao Paulo, the whole entire planet is practically covered in words.

This got me thinking. If I had thumbs, what words would I stick?? I came up with sooo many, I couldn't decide. So I told Pug some of my ideas. Big mistake.

PUG: you sound like the government.
ME, DUTCH: is that bad?
PUG: I don't think the government even wants to sound like the government. 
ME, DUTCH: stop trying to confuse me.

I have no idea what Pug meant about the government and didn't know how not to sound like it. The whole thing got very confusing and a little sad... until I saw the wall I'm posing with in today's picture. It belongs to a church and had some other words and stuff on it, but all I could see was my perfect words.

So I asked my human if we could make a picture of just the parts of the wall that say what my sign would say if I had thumbs. She said yes, but only if I was in it. She was surprised when I stared deep into Droid's creepy little eye, but I didn't mind posing for something so special. I think it came out perfect.

See you next Friday!

Love + Carrots,


PS: if you guessed yesterday's may-or-may-not be Austin, TX sign was really about Oklahoma, you were right! We asked the man inside the store that made the sign to explain it and he said they were celebrating Oklahoma's new&improved marriage laws. I don't think a sign that mysterious does a very good job of celebrating anything, but at least it tried.
