The Interview

My Mom has been playing with her new camera and getting up in my face. Anyhow, as you will read, my human wasn’t as cooperative as Ruby’s mom, however I did finally get her to sit down with me and here is what happened…..

D: What is your job? L: I work in the education field making sure public schools are helping children learn and be safe.

D: If you could do any job in the world other than the one you have what would that dream job be? L: I would most like to be an artist working in all kinds of mediums.

D: Mediums? What about larges like me? L: No Dor, the word mediums also mean all different kinds of art forms like stained class, paper art, fiber art. All the things I do when we aren’t playing together.

D: What is your favorite activity? L: Cuddling with you and being out on the ocean in good weather.

D: Where is your favorite place? L: Well any place my friends are, but if you ask me a favorite location I would have to say Seagull Beach on Cape Cod in the fall.

D: What is you favorite food? L:Well Dory I like lots of food, but probably my favorite is angel food cake with chocolate frosting, I have had it every year on my birthday.

D: What is your least favorite food? L: I would have to say califlower.

D: Oh yeah I don’t like that either!! L:That’s not true, I saw you eat califlower just the other day, you eat just about everything Dory.

D: OKAY moving on… what is something you can’t live without? L:Coffee is definitely on the list, I think that and time to be creative are my final answer here.

D: What was your dream growing up when you were a little human? L: I had lots of dreams, I wanted to be a mom, I wanted to work with children and one specific dream was to own a jeep and have a golden retriever.

D: Have you lived the dream? L:Yes, I’m a doggie mom several times over so far, I have worked with young children, owned several jeeps and had a golden retriever named Lucy in my life.

D: Why was having a golden retriever so important? L: I think it was kind of a rebellion thing. My parents owned Labs my whole life and every time I asked for a golden they told me “No, we are a Lab family.”

D: Who is your hero or person you most admire? L:Uncle Harvey’s wife Edna. She really encouraged me my whole life and was very proud that I was pursuing my doctorate degree. She was always said girls can do anything they want to and be anything they want to.

D: So you are saying I could live my dream and be a chef in a resturant?? L: No Dory, you need thumbs for that dream, plus I can only imagine the chaos in the kitchen with you there!

D: Party Poop!! L: What did you say???


D: What do people like about you? L: I think they like the fact that I never take life too serously and I am very patient.

D: What would you like to improve about yourself?
L: Aside from my spelling skills, I agree with Ruby’s mom and would like to procrastinate less.

D: What is a fun fact about yourself?
L: I can roll the sides of my tongue up, which is genetic and I have a small tattoo of a paisley shape on my upper leg.

D: No microchip in case you get lost?
L: No, I’m hoping the tattoo will suffice in finding me if I get lost.

D: What do you trait do you dislike in others? L: Intolerance.

D: What is your secret indulgence?
L: I do one very self indulgent thing – I get a pedicure and manicure every two weeks.

D: What is a pedicure and manicure?
L:That means someone makes my fingers and toes pretty.

D: Oh so do they cut your toes and make you bleed all over like you did to me??
L: NO. That was an accident!!! Next question??

D: Do I have a secret indulgence?
L:Not really you don't have any money to spend on indugences. But I must confess I buy you way too many new collars, a girl can never have too many accessories.

D: Greatest regret?
L: I don’t get to travel and go on vacation as muc as I would like.

D: Proudest moment?
L: When I opened the notice that I officially could be called “Doctor Young”. I am also pretty proud that I have learned how to captain apower boat on the ocean.

D: Scariest experience?
L: Moving to Massachusetts all by myslef, starting a new job and Harvard all at the same time. I was afraid I’d bomb out in school and ha to go home and live with Gramma.

D: Oh I’d love to live with Gramma!!
L: No I just meant I was really afraid I wasn’t brave or smart enough to make it in a tough university in a totally new place.

D: Favorite word? L:Finagle

D: Favorite sound?
L: Ocean waves

D: Favorite smell? L: Fresh mowed grass

D: Favorite dog?
L: Wally.

D: WHAT!?!?! L: Just kidding, I love you because you are the funniest dog I know.

D: Favorite saying? L: “OH MY STARS!” Being an educator I can’t really swear and it gets the point across.

Now Dory I have to say we have a big day of fishing ahead, our vacation starts tomorrow so it's bed time.

D: Really?? No fair. Okay then good night folks, thanks to Mom for being sorta cooperative and hopefully Dad will make himself available real soon. Good night!!

Hey Dory...
That was a great interview...I think your Mom was pretty cooperative, but that comment about Wally being her favorite dog...I don't know. That wasn't very nice.

I hope you have a wonderful vacation and take LOTS of pictures of your adventures, ok? Oh and get your Dad to tell us about himself too!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Peanut said...

Boo said...

Have fun on your vacation! I can't wait to hear all about it!

Love ya lots,

Ferndoggle said...

Your Mom is funny Dory. Way to never let her forget she cut your toenail off. That guilt thing is pretty cool!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Dory
Thanks for that invterview with your mom, you did a great job.
Reading it looks like she is a brave person but at the same time seems pretty relaxed.
Enjoy your vacation and show us the pictures when you have time, ok?

Gus said...

Good job on the interview Dory! And you even got to put up a poster. But you know what is scary? I think Wally is one of my muzzer's favoritest dogs too! What is it with Wally and Women?

Lady Kaos said...

Great interview Dory! I wish we were going on vacation soon! Our Jeep is still in too many pieces to go anywhere. I hope Dad gets it put back together soon.
Your Sorta Sis Kaos

Sophie Brador said...

Good work Dory! You are not only beautiful, but talented. You could take over Rosie's spot on the View.

wally said...

Aw--I'm blushing! Your mom is a lot like my mom with the coffee. And I think you and I are a lot a like (food, please!). My ma ape also has a tattoo in case she gets lost and the next one she's going to get is WALLY so I always know it's my ma and not an imposter.

You did a great job interviewing, Dory.


Marvin The Dog said...

oooooh that was a lovely and very professional interview Dory.

I am sad 'cos no-one has asked me to interview my Jeannie, but the reason is probably 'cos the interview would take up too much time.

Once she starts talking, well, to be honest there is no rest for any of us!

love and happy licks, and your Ma is very very clever by the way!

love Marvin xxxxxx
