Great, woof! Lawn, lawn, lawn!! Places to pee, places to poop. A man picks up my poop and swears. Shorter than Tall Man. Walking, running! Flowers! Swingset! Sniffing!

Q: Bo, honey, we hear you love watching American Idol. Can you tell us which Idol you like best?

No! No!

Q: Why is that, boy? Why can't you tell us who you like the best?

Moving around! Running down steps! Sometimes knees are up in balconies! Woof! Your knees are here, nuzzle. Got away with it!

Q: Say, boy, can you tell us why you like tomatoes?

Juicy! Squish-all-over ball! Some balls don't squish, but tomato ball is great for squish!

Toilet paper melts in my mouth. What's your paper? Woof! What's, what's your paper! Tear me a piece of paper! Pant, jump on knees!! Tear skirt. Inky paper flavor, mmm. Leave me alone a minute.

I don't see Tall Man much. Photo op! Petting! Gets on helicopter and waves. That's okay! Girls and Tall Woman play with me. Can I sniff your shoes? Quick sniff. Pulled away again!

Q: Bo, tell us, have you flown on Air Force One?

I flew once! I threw up! Shorter Man picked up throw-up and swore. I won't fly again, Shorter Man says, ever again! Another sheet of paper? Come on! Jump on knees! Start to chew on Porty microphone. Do I know you?

Woman with frilly top half, before I go could you bend down? I want to lick your face. Lick your face!! Oh, yummy, thanks.

Bye everyone! Going walkies! Look back a couple times! Woof!!
