The Girl From Ipanema

Hello, everyone!  It's me, D'Azul's Girl From Ipanema, just call me Camo.  I'm very happy here in my new home!  I think I have most of the routines down-pat now - I'm especially good at the part about going over to where the treats are kept when we get back from a walk patrolling the neighborhood.  I haven't quite mastered the sitting first part, but I'm working on it!

The other night, I had a little bit of a hard time with settling in for napping/TV time after the after-dinner patrol.

"Follow my lead, Camo!  Zzzz..."
"I'm trying, Zim."

I just had a hard time settling in like Zim did.  Dave, my David, came over to check on me.

"What's the matter, little sis?"
"I can't settle, Dave.  Would you sing it to me again?  Please???"

He said he'd sing it for me - just one more time.  He knows it helps me relax!

♩ ♩"Olha que coisa mais linda, 
Mais cheia de graça. 
É ela a menina que vem e que passa, 
num doce balanço a caminho do mar. 
Moça do corpo dourado do sol de Ipanema,
 O seu balançado émais que um poema, 
Éa coisa mais linda que eu já vi passar. 
 Woooo, por que estou tão sozinho? 
Woooo, por que tudo é tão triste? 
Wooooo, a beleza que existe, 
A beleza que não é só minha, 
Que também passa sozinha. 
 Ah, se ela soubesse 
Que, quando ela passa,
 O mundo inteirinho se enche de graça 
E fica mais lindo por causa do amor ..."  ♩

Sigh.  He even knows all the Portuguese words.  My mom didn't get Dave on video singing, but these bipeds do a pretty good job with my song:

If that doesn't play, you can view it on this link on YouTube.

"Is that kid cute enough?  Sheesh!"

That song does the trick for me!  Aren't I lucky that it's one of Dave's favorite songs?!?



  1. I knew Dave would get you settled and relaxed. He is just a super guy like that. AND he knows Portuguese?!! Well that seals it, he is the dog among dogs and beyond.
    "Goosie" (I said it that way just for you)

  2. What lovely dogs. My little boy also has a hard time settling, on occasion.

  3. That Dave sure is a special big brother. You are lucky to have landed at the AO4 Cammie.


  4. Oh CAMO you have Already come a LONG WAY!! Of course Dave and Zim have helped you a LOT...butt you are doing your pawt too!!!

    We are so glad that you have come to Blogville. Wait until you get to attend one of our big Pawties!!! IF.. David and Zim allow you to . Just sayin.

  5. Hey Camo you are lucky indeed to have Dave sing to you. I can't sing to you but I will howl with you anyway. I howl a mean tune. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Hi there, I love that you have adjusted so easily but living in a dream home, I can understand that. Hey do you have any wisdom about how I could get Hunter to stop whining at the cabinet where the treats are kept. He is limited to one in the morning and one at night-but thinks if he stands there and whines or sneezes(something he has always done)that I will give in.
    I don't speak any languages but English, so I'm very impressed.
    Have a pawsome weekend.
    Noreen & Hunter

  7. Awwww, Dave is so sweet!


  8. You're very lucky to have such wonderful brothers Camo! Maybe next time Davy sings to you we'll get to hear it!

  14. Hi Camo...so nice to meet you! You are very pretty!!!

    Lots of Licks, Ruby & Speedy!

  15. Hi Camo...so nice to meet you! You are very pretty!!!

  16. Listen to Dave and Zim. Getting rest is important. You have a lot to do to help make sure everything runs properly at A04 headquarters.

    I listened to half of that song and got kind of sleepy myself.


  17. Hello there Camo,

    That's really very sweet of Dave to sing to you. We didn't think he knows Portuguese. So impressive!

    We are so happy you are in the company of the best brothers ever!
