The Stand Off


This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. First things first on my order of business.  Thank you to everyone for your encouragement yesterday as we had our first television taping in Tampa, Florida on Daytime NBC!  We were actually pretty nervous.  Well, the persons were to be honest, and a Sheriff is always honest.

We also had our first ride in the RV and Boy Person did magnificent.  Excellent job.  Excellent work.  Deputy Digby Pancake and I were not too thrilled with all the loud noises, and it took a bit of adjustment to get used to.  Who puts their house on wheels and drives it around?  Girl Person had a bit of seasickness come over her which was weird because we were not in a boat!  I guess it will take us a few weeks once we are on the road to be ok with all of this.  And we are ok with that.

But anyway, back to our TV taping.  Did you know what when you are a star on TV that you do a lot of waiting? And more waiting? And more waiting?  We waited for a long time, but we had fun with it and peed on everything we could outside of the TV studio.  We drove our seasick houseboat on wheels to the studio so it could be on TV too.  We were out there a bit long waiting on the host persons to come outside and interview us.  They put microphones on the persons but they didn’t have enough for me and Deputy Digby, so I was already irritated with that fact.  Then, as I was trying to get over the lack of a mic, guess who pulled up?  A security guard.  A security guard who was not the police I should add.  And I will add it.  He was messing with the wrong dog.

He told Boy Person that we shouldn’t be parked outside the studio, that it was wrong and he was going to call the police.  Hello?  I may not have a microphone.  I may not have my handcuffs on me at this moment, but there is a Sheriff in this town. And it’s me.

Girl Person walked me over to the security guard person with a mustache not even half the growth of mine and told him that he could go secure somebody else.  That this situation was under control.  Right about that time, three sales person dudes walked by in suits and smiles and I just got irritated at all this stuff and the lack of coldness in my water bottles and I growled at everyone.  Everyone! What does a Sheriff have to do around here to get a little respect? It was a stand off.  And I arrested everyone.

Right about that time, the TV taping finally started in the RV.  We will show it to you when it airs tomorrow.  But let’s just say, by the time all these people came in our RV to talk about our trip, Digby and I were done.  He tried to pull away from the camera and was trying to run away from the camera monster and I was having none of it.  So we will see how it all turns out!

Thanks everyone! Have a great day and do not get arrested.

    You were a very brave Sheriff! So glad that you protected scared Digby, too. All that confusion must have been quite frightening, but Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle saved the day! 🙂

    I think you were right to arrest everyone! People need to know who they are messing with!!! Tell girlperson that the “seasickness” thing will be better if she watches the road for a while.
