The San Francisco Giants! And now, secrets revealed...A MUST READ!
Greetings Earthlings. It is I, Lykos, supreme ruler of planet “Wiener.” Do not fear. We wieners are benevolent beings with powers greater than you can imagine. I came to earth on a mission to ensure victory for the San Francisco Giants at the 2014 World Series.
Many months ago, I was made aware of a race of earthlings known as “The Kansas City Royals” who had conspired with my nemesis, Sophia, to overthrow the World Series and steal victory from the Giants. This was cause for great concern, as we Wieners depend on the energy that emanates from earth each time the Giants are victorious. Without this, our planet, and all the wieners on it, would have been ROASTED!
Now that you are aware of my mission, I must insist on your secrecy. Heed my warning Earthlings: You need Wieners as much as Wieners need you. I must request that you do not email my master and attempt to share this knowledge, as he is unaware of my true identity and is oblivious to the control I have over him. He knows me only as his “pet.” In order to ensure the success of future missions, he must never know.
If you choose to obey, I will continue to keep you apprised of these activities. But in order to stay informed, you must subscribe to this blog or, sadly, you will be left in the dark with no ally should danger besiege you! BEWARE! There are dangers out there far greater than the Kansas City Royals. Until then, keep it secret, keep it safe…and GO GIANTS!
Hello my earthly companions. It is I, Sophia. I shall not waste your time with outlandish tales such as the likes of Lyos. I am here for reasons far greater than you can even begin to fathom. The World Series has been lost. Now our road is now filled with peril. We must join forces in order to beat the common enemy. You need my help more than you know. We must prepare. When the time comes, I will contact you, but you must first subscribe to this blog.
For now, I must pay homage to my earthly heritage by supporting my comrades, The Kansas City Royals. Soon, you will learn the truth, but I am not as hasty as the likes of Lykos, who mixes truth with lies! Do not believe everything that is written! I will leave you with this, BEWARE of GMOs!
Before we go, let us lift your spirits with some Halloween photos. Enjoy...until we meet again!
Feeling frisky after KANSAS CITY clobbered the GIANTS, 10-0 in game six, Sophia paused to celebrate before making a last ditch effort to save Dexter from the dark side. Win or lose, it appears Dexter has made his choice, but Sophia isn't so sure... In fact, she's got a plan...
Poor Dexter! His team lost AGAIN! In a moment of desperation he abandoned the ROYALS for a GIANTS bandana and a COOKIE! He’s on the dark side now and there’s no turning back! I’m afraid it’s going to take a SUPERNATURAL act, a divine intervention of some sorts…to release this little devil from his fate!
Suddenly…in a FLASH of light two ghostly apparitions appear…is that…BUDDY??? OH MERCY! WHAT ON EARTH IS HAPPENING??? Have they come to take Dexter away? IS THIS THE END?Like I said, Mama Sophia has a plan...one that is simply divine, "DEXTER, STEP INTO THE LIGHT. MAKE A CHOICE. WIN OR LOSE…COME BACK AND YOU WILL FIND TRUE HAPPINESS…AND COOKIES TOO!
Ahem…What’s all this nonsense about the GIANTS and the DARK SIDE, partner? And what in tarnation are Sophia and Buddy doing in those silly white costumes?!? No fair offerin’ that boy a cookie! He has no self-control! Well, another one of Sophia’s schemes I suppose. Just a bunch of nonsense if you ask me. That Sophia aint nothin’ but a WITCH! She needs to leave that boy alone! Stop dressin’ him up like a devil and LEAVE HIM BE! He’s a GIANTS fan now. Just like ME. OH, and the GIANTS will win the WORLD SERIES alright. You’ll see.
Did Sophia's intervention work? What will become of Dexter? Which team will he chose??? Who will be top dog when the series is over? Lykos…? Sophia…? Is Sophia REALLY a WITCH?!? Are you confused??? STAY TUNED as we find the answers to these questions and MORE as the final game unfolds and mysteries are solved in, 'Who will be the "Weiner"!'
Mama Sophia still steadfast in her loyalty to the Kansas City ROYALS reflects as her teammates begin to reconsider after last night's disappointing 5-0 loss to the GIANTS. Sophia believes in her heart that the Royals will persevere, but some of the others aren't so sure...
Poor Dexter! The grief of losing yet another game was all too much. The room was dark and his heart was filled with despair. It was at that moment he heard a voice, "DEXTER, I AM YOUR FATHER! COME TO THE DARK SIDE AND VICTORY WILL BE OURS...!" Suddenly, he felt an uncontrollable urge to slip on a GIANTS bandana as if guided by some outside FORCE! What on EARTH is happening? Did Dexter pose for this picture against his will, or did he SELL OUT the ROYALS for a COOKIE and extra attention from his dad? Perhaps a little bit of both? Stay tuned as the World Series continues, and we find out, "Who will be the "Weiner"?
After enjoying a three run lead early in the game, the Giants came from behind with a rally in the sixth inning. Was it the expectation of a TREAT or did the GIANTS finally grab Mama Sophia's attention? You decide. Meanwhile, we're off to CARMEL BEACH today to enjoy some pregame festivities! We will continue to POST daily until we have a "Wiener".
After the disappointing loss of GAME THREE, Lykos, Rhea and Trudy have decided to rally together for game four!
Come on Giants! This isn't our first rodeo! Let's round up those Royals and rope this series up!
Oh what a difference a day makes! Yesterday's depression was replaced with a new found confidence and the expectation of greater things to come! Perhaps my stern warning about the dangers of overindulgence struck a cord. Could it be that Dexter actually listened? Indeed, my sphere of influence appeared to be growing strong! After struggling with obedience training, I had resigned myself to the fact that as much as I am Dexter’s master, I’m really nothing more than a means to his end – so I’ve been told.
And it was then I realized his new found optimism was nothing more than the expectation of a morning meal accompanied by the joy of WINNING game two of the World Series!!! Suddenly, Dexter's message was clear: THE ROYALS WON!!! NOW GO TO THE FRIDGE!!! FEED ME!!! AND MAKE IT SNAPPY!
Savoring the moment! A full belly, winning game two of the World Series and extra attention from dad. What could be better?
This morning, I peeled back the covers and found Dexter with a bottle of Dachshund wine, still feeling the pain from last night's loss to the San Francisco Giants. I have to admit, I was a bit shocked by his behavior. After all, it was only GAME ONE! Well, in every family there's a member who needs just a little more encouragement when the chips are down. It was time for a conversation to put things into perspective and get him back on track. That being said, the Giants were looking pretty darn good last night, so I had to be careful. I didn't want to set Dexter up for a crash should the Royals ultimately lose the World Series. Still, I simply couldn't condone his behavior. Using alcohol as an emotional escape will lead to BAD THINGS! I've heard that most AA meetings don't allow DOGS. Is that true? Perhaps I'm overreacting... All I can say is, it's tough being a puppy daddy sometimes!
After getting over the shock of finding Dexter with a bottle of wine at such an early hour of the morning, I pulled myself together enough to provide some much needed words of encouragement – along with a VERY STERN WARNING, “BAD DOG…! BAD…! NOW, DON’T DO THAT AGAIN!” For now, I’ll have to let this sleeping dog lie and hope he pulls himself together before GAME TWO, tonight.
The Backstory: There is a situation in brewing within the pack. Three of our doxies are native to Kansas City and are die hard Royals fans, while the other three, adopted in California, are fiercely loyal to the GIANTS! Watch as the World Series unfolds and loyalties are tested. Stay tuned as the drama behind the games explodes in this ground-burrowing dog-eat-dog blog, WHO WILL BE THE "WEINER"! Come meet the players!
Sophia (L), cunning and strong Lykos (R), easy-going, good ol’boy (or is he something more?)
