Bruthas From Different Muthas

This weekend I met up with my brother Oakley at my chalet. As always, he was thrilled to see me. The little guy really looks up to me.

We had a pretty wet and rainy weekend though, which put a ‘damper’ on some of the intrepid exploring we had planned to do.

It wasn’t all bad though. The rain was a good calling to do some fishing, which is where we enjoyed a little man-to-man talk.

He told me he wants to grow up to be a celebrity just like me. In my infinite wisdom, I told him that the path to his own fame might be a little different than mine – even though he might ride my coattails for part of the way.

My road to fame came through my poster-boy good looks, athleticism, enviable physique, and Johnny Depp-like charm. I can’t exactly see this being the way for Oakley.

I told him his celebrity career would probably start as a comedian – since that’s what he’s good at. My words of wisdom really seemed to sink in during our bro-to-bro talk, that is until he saw something shiny and went bounding after it (actually, I think it was a fish). So anyway, I just left it at that.

But he’s a natural comedian.

For instance, this weekend he kept asking me to try on my BATDOG outfit. At first I said no, explaining there could only be one BATDOG and that he might tarnish BATDOG’s intimidating and powerful reputation. But in the end, I couldn’t resist those confused marble eyes of his.

Although, I believe I was right – as evidenced by an excellent point made my Deb Reed on my Facebook page who said, “on Oakley it is a costume…on you Crusoe…an OUTFIT…”

Oakley is just too goofy and cute to be the dark knight. He could make for a great Robin though – which I told him he should enter as in my SuperDog Photo Contest.

I even asked him to pose for a nice Halloween-themed photo while wearing this orange bow tie. Of course he obliged, always wanting to please me, but by the time the camera was turned on and focused, he was already falling asleep..

While I consider myself ‘manly sexy’, he’s definitely got the ‘puppy cute’ going for him.

Moving on. With it being so wet and mild outside this weekend, we had to find ways to entertain ourselves.

Sunday started with a lazy morning that involved watching some TV, or rather some BET to be exact. I found myself feeling just like Oakley – mesmerized by all the shiny bling.

I figured if they can show off their fame with jewels and swagger, why couldn’t I? So that’s what led us to this.

Gangster Puppy Wiener Dogs

We’re dachshund ‘bruthas from different muthas’ – figuratively and literally. For any of my new fans who don’t know Oakley’s whole story, we had different mothers but the same father (he got around). I am also a year older than Oakley.

I guess we both got a bit of our father’s ‘pimp’ in us.

So as you can see, it is always interesting having Oakley around. He just brings out the goofiness in both of us. I guess it’s because we’re brothers that we get along so well. We have our differences, but definitely our similarities too.

To finish off, here’s one clear difference – when confused, we both tilt our heads different ways.

Oakley does that a lot..

Keep ballin’,

  1. Crusoe–you are the Best Big Bro! Oakley is lucky to have you for advice from fame to females to flexing. The two of you make my Mum and me giggle!
    You & Oakley need to book a world tour. This way, your fans can see you up close, but, on second thought, your celebrity might not allow this….XXX OOO <3 Bonnie Lee
    Once again—loves the outdoors, cute, athletic, single

    • Thanks Bonnie! Fame to females to flexing.. I like that : )

      A world tour would be nice. I’ll have to check mine and Oakley’s schedule.

      (loves the outdoors, cute, athletic, single – noted.)

  2. Manly sexy and puppy cute describes you both to a tee!!! Absolutely love the last photo with your heads cocked looking adorable!!! Love you both! You certainly know how to keep your international fan base happy. Love Bonnie Lee’s suggestion of a “world tour” – the fans want to touch you and see you up close, Crusoe!!!

  3. Crusoe you are the dog with mostest charm and charisma! You can always get a Robin outfit for Oakley – but you are right there is only one Bat Dog and even my hooligans are second only to your world celebrity status – they are earning their own local status here. I would love to see you on a world tour and give you puppy hugs in person. You are such a sweety.

    • Aw, thanks Patty! And I’m sure your little guys are just as big celebrities at heart.

      But you’re right, there can only be one Dark Knight.

  4. P.S. Kudos to Oakley in the photo where he’s dozing off in the orange tie! Is he already a bit blase’ over all the paparazzi attention?? He’s a handsome little guy in his own right, but can’t hold a candle to you, Crusoe!! Love you guys!!! Can’t wait til your next funny blog!!!

  5. I’m in love with Oakley, my dachshund agrees with me. Her name is Dolly, but she could be his grandma, she is 14 years old.
