Hook’s Dog With A Blog – And a Moving Tale From La La.

2012-08-22 11.46.44Greetings, humans!

My name – the name the two-legs decided to give me anyway – is Chelsea. The Hook is busy this week, so I’m pitichin’ in. (He promised to reveal the location of my favorite chew toy if I comply.)

Technically, I’m the “family dog”, although I hate that term. Between you and me? I keep this family in line.

Humans need to be focused and so I have devised a foolproof plan to keep The Hook, VampireLover and the rest of them on their toes at all times:

  • I challenge their olfactory senses with a gas that The Hook maintains could be weaponized.
  • Culinary skills remained polished with my “Feed The Dog Chicken ‘n Rice and The Hook Grilled Cheese” meal plan.
  • Funds that would normally go to frivolous human activities like rent, food, movies and comic books are diverted to vet bills and my Milk Bone addiction.

So that’s what I do for them. Now onto the juicy stuff, the secrets of the house. I see everything. I sleep on The Hook’s bed for most of the night and let me tell you, the things I see –

Okay, that’s enough! This The Hook folks, sorry about that. I think Chelsea got a little carried away here. I’m in th emiddle of March Break madness and I thought – foolishly – that my little four-legged thumbscrew could help out.

But I won’t be doing that again.

At any rate, here is a post from the lovely La La that reminds us of the power of dark humor. La La is one talented young lady and she has touched my soul with her humanity. You’ll laugh and maybe even cry, folks.


Helen, A Prostitute.

About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

  1. Read it – loved it – never had a douche left in my car… I’ve driven one around, however, he didn’t think he was one…

  2. La La says:

    Thank you for the shout out and kind words. MUAH!

  3. Katie says:

    Just when it was getting good!

  4. Diane C says:

    Hey Robert, thanks for suggesting to go read La La’s blog. I just read about Helen the prostitute and it really touched me – even the part about the douche in the car!

  5. Thanks, Hook! That was a great post of La La’s. I think Chelsea deserves a milk bone for this. Good doggy!

    How can I resist? He is so cute. But then again, I find most any dog precious!

    I’ve all ready read La La’s post. It was touching. Just shows no matter what, we are all human with feelings. But yeah, I would have bleached out the interior of my car. Cus well ya never know…..hope you stay well and sane Hookster!

  8. I think Chelsea needs to make another appearance soon. Maybe she was going to get carried away in the bedroom, but she surely sees some pretty great stuff in other rooms of the house. And everyone knows everything is funnier through a dog’s eyes.

  9. Carrie Rubin says:

    You’re looking fit and fine on that dashboard, Chelsea!

  10. Now we see who really is the power behind the throne…or rolling cart….
    No biting remarks – enjoyed the tale! (and the dog is going to also be published soon, right? So it’s a tell-all book? We’ll get really upset if she gets a call for an interview from that radio show first)

  11. Rohan 7 Things says:

    Haha, I hope Chelsea will hijack your posts from time to time, that was funny 🙂

    Off to read LaLa’s post now, thanks for sharing!

    Keep well.
