Sometimes you has to just make up an adventureHas you ever noticed how I always looks so good in pictures.
I always just looks so beautiful. It am amazing.
Blue says there am no great beautiful Belgian movie stars. I'm not saying he's right but what if they isn't no world famous Belgian movie stars because we they keeps all them great beautiful Belgians right at home!
I bet they do! And I bet my Gramma had to sneak in there like she had to jump out of a plane at night and then sneak my mom out of Belgium and walks with her all the way to Ohio while bad guy soldiers was looking for them. But my mom and Gramma are too smart for any bad guys to catches them!
And they went through all these great adventures just so that a great dog like Shelby could be borned.
I is just so amazing.
Ben and me has been plenty bored.
We has been having plenty of fun but we am dogs of action!
I likes to say that: We am dogs of action!
Don't that sound dramatic? Like we is about to go off and do something great! Doing something great am one of the things I does best!
Ben says, "Snail toes and artichokes Shelby, I need to have me a real big adventure soon or I might just itch right out of my own skin and have to beat myself up!"
Ben thinks he am the only dog in the world tough enough to beats himself!
So we was talking and David says, "Why don't you go on a bear hunt?"
Ben and me just looks at each other. You know the way you looks at each other when somebody says something really stupid but that somebody, who am David, has a cookie in his hand so you don't wants to say out loud how stupid they is in case that somebody don't give you that cookie. You know that look?
Bears am not very tough, especially for tough dogs like me and Ben. I has got me some teddy bears and they is way too little and too soft. They am fun to play with. You can bites them and play tugs of war using them for the rope!
You know a animal am not very tough when they lets you use them as a tug of war rope!
We was watching TV that night. David did not share his popcorn cause he am so selfish. He am a terrible sloppy eater so he dropped some and we got some anyway. We was watching us a show about LIONS!
Lions am big cats. Because they am cats you know we am terrible smarter than they is.
We decided we would catches us a lion! If you make your eyes go all funny Ben he looks him like a little baby lion! So we comed up with a genius plan. The plan part were Ben. The genius part were from me.
"Dip me in bacon grease and serve me for supper! Shelby, hunting lions is a great idea! What I'll do is pretend to be a little bitty baby lion! I'll stand out there and pretend to cry. I'll go: Here I am a cute little baby lion. I am so lonely and has no other lions to play with. I am so little and so lonely!"
See lions being cats when they here's about something being little and all by itself they just comes running cause they know they might has found something they can beats up!
Ben stood out there in the yard and we waited for them old lions to show up so we could fights them!
Robin ad Blue really wanted to be part of our big adventure. They am boys and most boys never figure outs they own big adventures. They has to find a girl to tell them what a great adventure am going to be!
When Blue found out we was fighting lions he got scared. He said, "I think the smart thing to do will be for me to stay behind this fence Shelby. If any lions come over here I'll have to warn David. It is a very brave job for me to do."
I started to laughs at all scaredy Blue but then I remembered that he am just a boy.
Boys is never going to be as brave as a girl. Oh when they is together in a bunch they is always talking about how brave they is and all the brave things they done but when it comes down to the fighting they is always saying they has them a new collar on or they hurted they foot in the last big fight they was in.
You has to feel sorry for boys. You really do. And you shouldn't make funs of them, not too much anyway. It am not they faults they wasn't smart enough to be girls.
Now we is ready to start hunting us up some lions.
It will be very exciting. Because I will be there to make sure it is!

I can't believe that Blue said there are no great beautiful Belgian movie stars. Hasn't he heard of SHELBY??? You have been in lots of movies!
I got to have some fun yesterday, I got to go for a ride and get some lunch for my mom, and keep her company while we had a picnic. I got to meet some new people and see my friend KC. Today I got to go back to KC's house and play. He's a little guy but he likes to play a lot.
I am glad to see that Ben is out with clothes on. Have some good adventures :)
