(i bet you’re tired of hearing this but THIS IS APADO, THE BLOG SERIES WHERE I TRY TO POST ONCE A DAY FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH OF OCTOBER you know what, i’m tired of hearing it too)
(and honestly i was just looking forward to showing some puppy pictures so yeah)
Scouty is my dog. And technically, his name is Scout. But I can’t stop giving him nicknames – Scouty, Snickerdoodles, Scoutydoodles, Doodlesnick, The Snicc, Scoutysaunez, Scouty-Wouty, Wittle Scouty, Wittle Buddy. The one I use the most, though, is Scouty.
Scouty was born on Februrary 2nd of this year, which makes him about nine months old. He has at least one brother – Captain – who belongs to my older older brother.
When he was little, he was the explorer of the two of them. He was the first to make contact with our other three dogs. And he was always sniffing around, exploring. It only made sense to name him Scout.
I’ve only had Scout for eight months or so, but I don’t know how I got along without a dog before then. It’s worth the getting up early to feed them, cleaning up their messes, dealing with their barking. Isn’t it funny what we put up with for our pets?
In our dog pack, Scout is kind of in the middle. He likes to do his own thing most of the time. But he is jealous over laps and will growl at anyone who comes to sit on whoever he’s sitting on. Usually, that’s me.
Scout is half Chihuahua, half Fox Terrier. You almost can’t tell that he has any Chihuahua in him except for his size (he’s tiny!) and the fact that he shivers whenever it’s under seventy-five degrees outside. I’m seriously going to have to get him a dog sweater this winter.
I’m so lucky to have a dog. Especially one as cute as Scouty.
(Okay, Enni put her part of this a week ago, and I meant to put up my part sooner, but…my life is kind of a tornado of busyness right now, so let’s pretend this is on time.)
(All images are via Google. I don’t have time to link them up today, but know that I didn’t make any of them. :))
Let me preface this by saying that Enni is one of my best friends and whenever we get together, something awesome comes out of it. I’m so lucky to have her email address. Hehe.
A few weeks ago, we were discussing dog personas and she thought it would make a terrific collab, so here we are! (Except I’m fashionably late. As usual.)
If you follow Enni’s blog, you’ve already heard about what I’d be like as a dog. And if you don’t follow Enni’s blog, you’re missing out. Click the red button to be transported to her very awesome, unique, fun world! (Link opens in new tab.)
If Enni were a dog…
…what breed would she be?
Probably a Samoyed, just like Misty! The only difference is that I’m a bit shier. 😉 But otherwise it’s a perfect match – stubborn, alert, friendly, conservative, gentle, yet can fight back if necessary.
And adorable. Enni is a real smol bean, to use the vernacular. She’s so happy and friendly that the only type of dog she could be is a floofy marshmallow dog like her dog Misty.
…what would be her favorite thing to do?
I think cuddling with humans. XP
I would probably own Dog-Enni, so she could sit on my lap and lick my face and that would be pretty nice.
…what would be her favorite food?
Ice. Misty loves ice, so I feed it to her from our dispenser in the freezer. She’s trained herself to get it herself though…Even as a human, I still like sucking it. 😉
Okay as far as dog tricks go, getting ice is pretty awesome.
…what would be her favorite toy?
SQUEAKY TOYS. Have you heard them? They are terribly satisfying.
YESSSSS I love squeaky toys. I can see her having one that looks like a donut. Maybe a hamburger. I’m not sure.
…would she dig holes?
To be honest, yes. I think it’d be nice to have your own little personal tunnel…
And if I owned a marshmallow dog in our 100+ degree summers, I wouldn’t blame her for trying to get cool. Our dogs certainly do.
…who would end up owning her?
Uh, no idea. Hopefully somebody nice who can give us the attention that I deserve.
Translation: Me. *jazzhands*
Enni is a really special person and I really hope you end up following her! She posts photography, quizzes, tips, thoughts on life, poems, adorable dog pictures, and updates on her WIP Blizzards. (Which is awesome. Just saying.)

My name’s Scout. I’m four months old and very handsome.
I live with my brother and my three cousins in backyard with two slides and at night I sleep in a crate on top of my cousin Chase.
This is what I look like:
My mother was a Chihuahua and my father was a Fox Terrier.
They sometimes call me a Taco Terrier but I think that’s kind of embarrassing.
My other nicknames are Scouty, Scouters, Scoot, Scouty-Wouty, Wittle Scouty, Snickerdoodles, and Scoutydoodles. Most of those are embarrassing too.
I’m only about a foot tall but I bark like I’m a Great Dane.
I really like to run around and dig holes and sit on Tess’s lap, because she rubs my back and feeds me treats.
I have lots of friends, but Misty is my best friend. We talk over Tess and Enni’s chats and then delete all the history so they’ll never find out!
When Tess and Enni decided to do this collab, I wanted to do the opposite with Misty – what would we be like as humans?
But the most annoying thing happened: before I got a chance to ask Misty the questions myself, Tess asked Enni and Enni answered all the questions for Misty.
Aren’t humans cumbersome sometimes?
So all of these questions are Enni answering for Misty.
But they’re still really fun and I hope you enjoy!
If Misty were a human…
…what would she look like?
This is hard because Misty has white hair. XD I spent about thirty minutes trying to edit someone’s hair to look white (because all the white-haired people are either elderly or look sad/trying to be cool) BUT I COULDN’T MANAGE IT. So, just turn this girl’s hair white using imagination, won’t you?
I think the real Misty is much prettier. Just saying. Dogs are always better than humans.
…what would she wear?
Wintery styles. We’ll give her a black tee, a silver scarf with gold tassels, a (heavy) white cardigan, skinny jeans, and…black high-heeled boots which might be something I would wear minus the boots. 😉
I think it’s accurate…but what’s a cardigan?
…would she talk in an accent?
Misty’s breed origin is Russian but she was born in Oregon. XD Probably not? NO WAIT. She’d have a Boston accent. Totally.
She actually kind of does have a Boston-dog accent. All dogs from Boston bark like her.
…what movies/music would she like?
Live music. Listen, Misty NEVER howls with recordings – only singing or music that’s uh…live? I dunno. XD As for movies…she’d be all about the comedy.
Live music makes my ears hurt. It’s too loud.
…what would her bedroom look like?
The color scheme would be…wintery. I mean, she’s a snow dog! I always feel like people who love winter are more chill, though, but Misty? Eh, I’d say that her personality would suit a summer-lover. Strange. Anyways, here’s a picture off Pinterest for her bedroom:
I really want to go dig in those covers. They look soooo warm.
…would she have hobbies?
Misty would adore journalism. She loves poking her nose into other people’s business – sometimes literally. When two people hugs, she barks, jumps, puts one hand on each shoulder and tries to separate them so that she can squeeze in between. XD Anyways, I think a journalist would be the perfect career for her. She would also garden since she already dug several nice holes in our yard and she’d definitely be into art as well – she might even be into carpentry; you should see what she’d done to our chairs. XD
I think that’s accurate. I like gardening too!
…what celebrities would she like?
Ihonestly don’t think that Misty would be into celebrities. XD
I’m a celebrity though. And she likes me well enough. Sooooo…me?
Still Scout here.
Do you know what the greatest injustice in the entire world is?
I don’t have a blog!
Tess hasn’t EVER let me post on hers, either, until today, but she probably won’t let me anymore because I said that dogs were better than humans!
But Misty has a blog! You should go visit it.
Click the picture of Misty to visit it!
Goodbye for now, but I hope I get my own blog someday, so I can tell you about all my adventures!
(not Snickerdoodles. I’m very masculine.)
I don’t know about you, but I thought this post was a ton of fun. Thanks, Enni for doing it with me!
Do you have a dog? What would you be like as a dog? What would your dog be like as a human?
