HERBIE: Every dog has heard the question “Who’s a Good Boy? (or Girl!)” or, as intoned by a human, “WHOOSAGOOBOY?” Generally regarded as a rhetorical question, we dogs tend to keep quiet and let our canine pride go unspoken.
I say it’s time we speak up! Dogs need no longer feign modesty! Say it loud, say it proud!
I’M A GOOD BOY!

HERBIE: Look what came in the mail, all the way from England! It’s so comfy! I just don’t remember posing for such a handsome portrait…
Thank you Grace!

RUBY: This summer weather is so gosh darn beautiful! I love running around outside! Oh, look, a camera! CHEESE!
HERBIE: Cheese? Did someone say CHEESE? *drool*
Happy summer, everyone!

HERBIE: Happy Independence Day, everyone! We got together with our friend Lexi, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, to celebrate America “British Puppy Style”! (Seeing as how we’re Welsh and she’s English…) Nevertheless, we love our country, especially when it means humans pass us a few lumps of chicken or other forbidden yummies on their holidays. *Burp*
RUBY: FIREWORKS. I was pretty stressed out when the human girl took this picture! IT WAS SO SCARY! WHAT? WHAT WAS THAT BOOM! Oh! Yummy! Chicken!

HERBIE: Ruby and I live in a nice house. Our humans are good, they feed us, let us out to poo when we bark at the door, take us for walks and snuggle us.
But there’s also this:
That’s right, they have a whole collection of cats. 3 of them, I think. I don’t know, I lose count. They like to lie around, jump on things I can’t jump on, and generally cause trouble. The humans seem to find them utterly adorable, which I can’t understand — what’s cuter than me?
I take it upon myself to enforce proper behavior with the feline members of the household. I guard their food so they don’t overeat and bark at them when they’re having too much fun. I don’t know why the humans don’t like it when I’m on duty as Cat Enforcer…I’m doing them a favor!
As for the official roster, there’s the Weird One, who likes to chew on people’s hair and lie around on squishy pillows:
The Lazy One, who has the best behavioral record and too many toes but almost no dignity:
And the…GAH! The Scary One! Yikes, I feel bad for the person who took this photo. This one likes to talk back to me when I try to put her in her place.
So, that’s about all of them, I manage to keep them in line…wait, what? What…hang on a second…since when? Why wasn’t the official application run by ME, the CAT ENFORCER, first?!
SINCE WHEN IS THERE A NEW CAT IN THE HOUSE?!

HERBIE: Sometimes being a Corgi means you have to sacrifice a little.
I mean, you’d think that all of the “stubs” and “nubs” and “shorty” comments would be quite enough for these humans. Alas, they always seem to find new ways to amuse themselves at our expense. Here, obviously, I am pictured…*sigh*…I don’t even want to type it.
With a banana on my head.
From day to day I manage to maintain my composure better than my little sister Ruby, but every now and then, you can tell she has a moment of self-reflection.
RUBY: DIGNITY? WHAT’S THAT, HERBIE? THIS IS COMFY! KEEP RUBBIN’ MY BELLY!
HERBIE: Ruby, you’re undermining my point here. Seriously, folks, whatever happened to this?
(Beautiful artwork, Sandara!)

Herbie: I hope mom doesn’t want to sew this evening, because there’s a storm coming and I’m not moving!
I hate storms. *Sigh*
Ruby: I love storms, but you’re really bumming me out, Herbie. *Sigh*
