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.

Bugsy the Wonderdog


  1. I think they should be made into dog parks. Or parks period. No use driving a little bitty ball around, that's not a sport. Go get a real hobby (or sport) and let the dogs chase some Frisbees. We have an obesity problem in this country, every child should be out chasing a dog around in some grass. My two cents anyway, course, I'm not the Wonderdog. ;)

  2. We live on one of those big fields. And, especially when it snows, we DO run around and treat it like a big park. We're with you, buddy....
