A Dog's Eye View of the Masters

What does a dog care about the Masters you ask?

Plenty. First of all my male human watches the whole damn thing on television. He does not play with me while its on, he does not take me for a walk during play and he does not even role around on the ground with me during the commercials. Now don't get me wrong I do understand the appeal. The place is incredibly beautiful. Take a look at the picture below and tell me what you see. Beauty, color, a really tough hole?

You know what I see? Me and every other dog both Wonderdog and non-Wonderdog? We see a space for running and running. Look at that glorious field. Do you know how much fun we could have there? We could have a pack of 30 or more dogs there and still have plenty of room for more. This place should not be called Augusta National it should be called Doggie Nirvana.

There is one major problem though.


I mean what kind of a rule is that. Who was the brainchild that came up with that one? I mean what's next are they going to ban women from the place too? Oh, they have? Some kind of guy named Hootie? Sounds like a member of the owl family to me. I never did trust those bird types. Maybe dogs and women could unite and one of us could get membership and bring the other species to the club member/guest. I have one final question. Do they allow children on the course? I guarantee I am better behaved than any child. Heck as much as it pains me to admit it even Murphy is. I bet you didn't know that Murphy's very first outdoor down/stay was on a golf course. He had George and I to help but he did it and he did it well.

As far as the tournament I have to cheer for that Eldrick Woods guy. Even though he is named after a member of the "cat" family he gets my vote just because I once heard a rumor that he has a Goldendoodle. Don't know if it's true or not and I can't seem to get the hanging of surfing this WWW thing so I can't verify it but he seems like a smart dude so he probably does have one.

I would like to make one final point in my case. If you think about the things that Augusta National are famous for they are beautiful Magnolias in bloom and (listen carefully now) DOGWOOD. They have dogwood, doglegs, probably hot dogs and I think the rules committee should finally break down and allow DOGS.

Maybe now that Hootie's retired they will even allow female dogs as well. What is it that they call them again Hootie? Go ahead, say it Hootie I dare you. I double dog dare you. I'm sure that at least one of my followers is a member of the National Council of Women's Organizations with their 6 million members just waiting for you to say it.

I'm sorry. A Wonderdog should be apolitical so I will move back to topics nearer and dearer to my furry little heart. As a final appeal to the powers that be at Augusta I would like to paraphrase a song from my Grandpuppy's days. "Let my people Run!"

Always remember your dog loves you unconditionally.

We Test - You Win

Product of the Month
You Follow! You can Win!

Part of being a Wonderdog is the responsibility I have to other dogs who are less fortunate. I am in a unique position of having a voice that is heard in larger than normal canine circles (is a canine circle when you chase your own tail?) so I am lucky enough to have companies sending me products to test. Some of them are great and some of them are less than great. I will be using this blog to pass on the results of my product testing and will usually designate one product as a "Four Paws Up Product of the Month." I will NOT be accepting cash or advertising revenue for any of these products or services so you, my faithful pack, will know I really like the products I endorse.

In addition I will be picking randomly one of the followers of this blog to receive whichever product receives "Product of the Month" endorsement. PLEASE NOTE: I said it would be one of the followers of this blog, not just my Twitter Pack followers. If you haven't done so please click follow at the bottom right side of this page to follow and win. I have just moved to this blog so we are starting a brand new list of followers so the earlier you register to follow the better your chances are to win.

I will make one more promise. If in any given month no product or service is deemed to be safe and or acceptable we will double up on the prizes given the following month. I would rather pay for a good product out of my own "pawket" for you than to send out something that doesn't meet the Wonderdog Standard.

If the product is a chew toy or something like that, don't worry, I won't send you the one that Murphy and I have put to the test. I will find you a new one. If it is food or cookies don't worry I will get you a fresh batch. If it's a book or service I'll........ Never mind, I think you get the idea. Effective May 1 we will have a complete list of all products that make a passing Wonderdog Grade in any given month posted at the end of the month right here on this blog.

A special note of thanks to all my new Twitter friends following me at "BugsyWonderdog". If you have found this site from Twitter I thank you for checking it out. I have just relocated to this blog as per some issues with my website (see introductory blog) and I have just recently started on Twitter. My growth there has been nothing short of astounding and if you have followed me and not received a thank you for following tweet I apologize. I really do appreciate your support and I will continue to provide you with the best of "All things Dog".

Now that the housekeeping has been taken care of I can replant my tongue firmly in my cheek and tomorrow we can take a "Dogs Eye View of the Masters".

Always remember, your dog loves you unconditionally,

Bugsy the WonderDog

PS If you have a product or service line that you would like tested by me please contact us by email at for details. Thanks

Welcome to my new blogsite.

I guess you should know right off the top that I used to have a website but the court ordered me to take it down because none of the dogs on the site were wearing clothing. Hopefully you blog readers are more openminded because I'm really not a huge proponent of "Dogs in Dresses".

Welcome to my Introductory Blog.

Hi, my name is Bugsy and I am indeed a Wonderdog. I definitely know this because every time I walk down the street I hear people saying, "Wow, look at that dog, I wonder what kind of dog he is?" Before we go too far please click the follow link on this blog. I need all the followers I can get to justify the exorbitant prices I charge for my services. Thanks.

As you learn a little more about me you will find that I am a Wonderdog in more than one sense of the word. I have done Print Ads, Television Commercials, posed for Brochures for a couple of companies and I even had a walk on part in a TV series when I was just a pup.
I have an extensive list of tricks and behaviors in my repertoire but my biggest asset is that I can't even walk down the street without someone stopping me and telling me how cute I am. I am currently working on my first book and I hope to have it completed by the end of May. (I will keep you posted) It would probably be ready sooner but it's hard to type with no fingers.
I have two agents, one in New York and another in Toronto Canada and I am available for movies or commercials if you want to hire me but I must warn you I am very selective about what I will endorse.
First things first. I am a Goldendoodle. I'm not a Wheaton, not a Borzoi, not even a Labradoodle although you would at least be half right. My dad was a Standard Poodle and my mom was a Golden Retriever. That definitely makes me a Goldendoodle. Not a great name for a dog breed but it sure beats the alternative of Goldiepoo
I was not an accident. I was bred this way on purpose to get all of the great traits from both of those smart friendly breeds. Being a first generation cross I am also supposed to stay healthier than most purebreds. Last but not least, they bred me this way so I would not shed. Oh well, genetics is still an inexact science. Even a Wonderdog is allowed to shed sometime.



I was raised with a couple of Standard Poodles, Storm and George who I will occasionally reference so I thought I whould pass that info along. They have both passed away and I now have an annoying "not so little" brother who looks much like me but acts like, well, like a little brother. His name is Murphy and unfortunately he will figure largely in the adventures we will be chronicling in the future. He was kind of cute when he was little but now, if you have a little brother you will understand.

Murphy as a puppy.........................Murphy as my clone.

I think that's plenty for now. I know that humans can get information overload easily so I will post you again soon. Thanks again for reading and please click follow.

Always remember your dog loves you unconditionally,

Bugsy the Wonderdog!
