A few words from Pirate the dog

March 23, 2009


Hiya! I’m Pirate, the most handsome Jack Russell Terrier you will ever meet. Now usually I stay in the background. I’m not an in-your-face kind of dog. Unless you have a turkey sandwich. Or chips or maybe a piece of bacon. I love bacon.

Now what were we talking about? Oh yeah. Angie is busy on her computer – typing away. Something about a new book deadline that I’m not allowed to talk about yet. But in the mean time, she’s neglecting her blog and that’s just not right. So seeing as I’m a talking dog and all, I thought I’d help her out.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from when I went to Las Vegas for The Dangerous Book for Demon Slayers. The first one is a sausage sandwich I got from Jodi Maroini’s Sausage Kingdom. It was so good I think I swallowed it whole.sausage1

This here is the Las Vegas Strip. You’ve never seen so many advertisements for free buffets. It almost makes me wish Ezra the ghost hadn’t taught me how to read. But I needed to learn to play Scrabble, so…


This is when I found some free french fries.


And the babes in Vegas. Ohh ee. Now I barked, but I don’t think she heard me on account of how loud it is on The Strip. Isn’t she fierce?


And finally, this is my favorite picture of bacon. Notice how it’s all sizzly on the sides. Mmm…


Okay, there’s a squirrel in the yard so I gotta go. But before I do, Angie wanted me to tell you all that the winner of this week’s Kiss My Asphalt t-shirt giveaway is Blackroze!

    Have a great weekend! Give pirate hugs for me!

  3. thank you!
    i would love to go to las vegas, lol but im a addict to the machines around here, that just put a quarter in to try to win a bunch of quarters LOL , hate to see me with thousands of machines to put money in

  4. Angie Fox Says:

    Oh great. Pirate was sleeping until you said HAM. Do you want to explain it to him or should I?

  5. Angie Fox Says:

    LOL Blackrose. Yeah, I don’t even think biker witch magic would help me win in Vegas. Congrats on the t-shirt win.

    Isn’t Vegas fun Pirate! I enjoyed myself there too!! Did Angie get you to one of those All-You-Can-Eat Buffets? They’re dangerous…and everyhwere there! You do have to be careful in Vegas though! I went there and came home married!! :O) Best little Drive-Thru wedding ever!!
    Glad you had so much fun…and let Angie know that we don’t mind here spending time away from here if she’s working on the next book ;o)!!

  7. Angie Fox Says:

    I agree, Kelly. You can truly judge a city by the number of All-You-Can-Eat Buffets. Therefore, Las Vegas is this dog’s favorite town. Now I wasn’t lucky enough to go home married, Drive-Thru-style, but I would have been honored to be the Best Dog. I look fierce in a doggie bow tie and tails.

  8. Stacey Says:

    sorry this took so long. computer is fuggered up again.
    Ok, Pirate. Ham—also means cute, cuddly, fiercely handsome and highly intelligent best dog in the world. Let’s consider it a weird acronym…..(Handsome Adored Mammal)? And honestly–I think you will agree that BACON tastes better:)
    Hope that worked–I do not want to be in trouble with your Mommy!! LOL
    Remember me when you do decide to have your doggy nuptials:) I’ll make a cake especially to your licking..teeheee…..Baconilla!!!!

  9. KatyF Says:

    Pirate and I share the same love for food! lol 😀

  10. Hey Angie and Pirate!

    We have nominated you for the I Heart Your Blog award here:

    Thanks for having an awesome blog!


  11. Angie Fox Says:

    Oh, you would have to bring up the baconilla, Stacey. You know Pirate has a one track mind!

  12. Angie Fox Says:

    Katy F – Pirate says you can join him at the buffet anytime.

  13. Angie Fox Says:

    Thanks, Rachel. Pirate blogs once and he gets an award. That pretty much sums up our little friend. Some dogs have all the luck.

    Of course Pirate thinks the crispy bacon picture is what put him over the edge. Everybody loves bacon.

  14. Stacey Says:

    yep–that about sums it up. we all get excited when they go outside to pee on our grass. so it only makes sense that Pirate would get an award for blogging. Just imagine what he’d get for a book….”Pirates guide to Babes, Bones and Buffets.”……
    He’d be rolling in Baconilla!!!!

  15. Stacey Says:

    now that was RIDICULOUS. there’s a time and place for everything. and this place doesn’t have time for that! gross!
