STUFFIES STUFF

Everybloggie. Listen up. SIT. And let me begin at the beginning. When I got a fabbie present from my sweetie Toffee for Valentines Day.



A cute card chock full of love. Along with a Heart Tag, engraved all special (for my eyes only.. blush) Plus this cool as a cucumber Retropup. With cowboy fabric ears!



Would you believe it?? He's the spit of me and my wiry pals!! Even had a label with a picture of us on him. He's my favourite orange too. (Asta! Sorry. Please don't look I know you'll be sooo jelly) I LOVE LOVE LOVE that Retropup. Blogging brilliant choice Toffee!!! Nothing could be nicer. Well. Apart from Toffee in the parcel. Thing was. Mom loved him too. Ccooing and ooohing.



So I took him to my blanket for safety. Now one minute I was operating on Retropup. In fact I was at a crucial stage of surgery. You'll know it Nursies. Performing the delicate opening of his trachea to remove his squeak box. When SWwoo Oooop. Square Mom snatched him away. Without even a please or thank you. Muttering she didn't want to see him hurt. Made me mad. And wagging worrried. Had to ask kittie bro' to flush him out. Otis found him. Cast your pies on where my Retropup is.....



ONLY ON THE WHEELIE STUFFIE SHELF. Posing. Up there with them pesky old sepia stuffies. THAT SHOULD RIGHTFULLY BE MINE. For taunting. Teasing. Tearing to pieces. Golly. Gosh. The deception bloggies. HURTS. S'pose I'm going to have to face it. Square on. Take a look-see. MOM'S A STUFFIE RUSTLER!!!!!



Been rounding them stuffies up. Cracking the whip. Taking pot shots with her flag pop gun. As if they were hers!!! Know what? From now on I'm planning on giving each and every one of my future stuffies some serious clicker training on recalls. Soon as they enter my house. Advise you to do the same.

I don't agree with an Eric free zone. If those guys are going to live with you, they need to be part of the pack. Wish I could visit. No doubt I could help you get them down.

Slobbers,

Clicker training for stuffies. A good plan!

Gus said...

Hmmm, clicker training might be just what is needed to thwart the wheelie takeover they have been plotting. You might want to work in concert with Jackson, who has a rowdy bunch of stuffies to control too.

Eric...oh pardon me.. Eric square dog, MD. I can't believe your mom is a wheelie wrangler and now retro pup! She looks intense! I agree clicker training may be the best approach but I think you should consider a bomb shelter like agatha. You could do your surgery in your bomb shelter and she will never know. Unless fuzz comes out flowing from it. Nonetheless you are one lucky boy getting presents from your sweetie.

The Retropup is awesome! Clicker training? Sounds like a great idea!

Sally said...

Dear Eric - this is unacceptable! What is this Eric Free Zone she speaks of?

I think you should hold a pair of her favourite shoes hostage until she releases the inmates of the shelf!

But he is a cute retropup - and he does display well....

Lots of licks
Sally

Jackson said...

Wow, Toffee sent you some pawsome stuff. Too bad the stuffie rustler intervened. How high is the shelf, Eric? I can still jump pretty high for an old fella! J x

Maggie and Mitch said...

Bummer, Eric! Our mom pulls this crap on us all the time too! Moms get real stingy when they like something that belongs to us! She'll give it back when you're 8!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Eric, I think that you should have a Stuffie Rustler Free area. Hay, It's only fair, she has hers.

Joe Stains said...

Oh dear, that is a serious situation you've got on your paws. Who knew?? I hear there are new stuffies coming our way soon...

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Eric, you are surrounded by stuffies! So not fair to have an Eric-free zone! Our mom tortures us with HER stuffies in cabinets and on poles all over the house! Just once we would like to have a taste of them!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

pawsome blog! Can we be friends?

hi Eric, that's so sweet for Toffee to send you a special card and the beautiful orange stuffy. your mom had to spoil all the fun.

you should be able to play with your own toy as you see fit. stuffies are supposed to be destroyed. that's their purpose. we don't understand why humans want to preserve them and put them in special places. our mom does that too and it drives us woofin' nuts.

wofos.

William Tell said...

We don't stand a chance, do we? Between our Moms rustling the stuffies away from us, and the silly things not coming when we call, how are we supposed to enjoy them to the fullest? We may have to get sneaky...

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Chef said...

I'm going to have to teach you some of my jump and snatch tricks, Eric, so you can get back those stuffies down from the Eric Free Zone. What's yours is yours!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

That Retropup is adorable!!! Sweet Enid can post ALL ABOUT HIM!!!!! Honestly, Eric, if you were nicer to your Wheelies they'd be nicer to you...Karma and all that...look at it now...you're banished from their sepia area...pretty soon there will be NO PLACE ur safe in ur own housie...

Ahem...Lacie clears her throat...who's bleeping bright idea was it to tell me that that tushie washer (Petey was sooooooooooo kind to finally inform me) that I've been draggin' around is not exactly the newest French glassware? You guys are DOGMEAT...Lacie shifts into fifth and starts shriekin' at the toppa her lungs...high pitched and yappy....


yipyipyipyipyipyipyipyipyipyipyipyip.............TBC

Petey said...

Hey Eric!

Careful now or Square Mom may attach some -- gulp! -- wheels to your new stuffie! Ack! A stuffie/wheelie hybrid!!!

So Lacie's on the warpath about the bidet, but if memory serves, it was Lacie who insisted on turning it into a personal punchbowl!

She has a very selective memory...

Your pal,

Petey

Dewey Dewster said...

Eric...

I bet ya can sneak up on those stuffies one night when everyone else is sleepin' 'n show 'em who's boss...

I mean if ya sharpin' yer teeth beforehand...ya can surely de-stuff 'em......yep..get it all out of 'em....why we heard they're plannin' on takin' over the dog world.....yep, movin' on over ta Crufts ta take Best in Show....

The nerve...why, we know pedigree dogs were exposed but we didn't know they were banned....

Tee said...

Hi!
I was tagged to do Honest Weblog and I chose to TAG you!
I hope you haven't done it already. Stop by my blog to get your instructions.
Wag and Licks,

Stanley said...

Eric.

Just one question... is that REALLY your mama on horseback in the photo?! WHOA! That's some rustlin'!

Bummer about your retropup. It's sad when the hoomans envy us our stuffies. Plain sad, I say.

Goober love,
Stanley

Fenway said...

I also have a collection of stuffies I'm only allowed to admire and not touch!

I was wondering what you did with the squeakers when you extracted them.

Your pal,
Fenway

Toffee said...

oh! Eric you are so gentle! I could never imagine you hurting a stuf...oh, wait a dog-a-blogging minute!...that is what they are there for!? They taunt us and they taunt us with their squeakers because the WANT us to de-stuff them, seriously.

Again, I am sorry that my kitty sister Kiwi started the job for you!

Your own stuffie wrangler? wow. That is service.

Eric and Flynn said...

Eric that was so nice that your sweetheart toffee sent you such a lovely gift.
An Eric free zone? Is that legal?

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Hi Eric!

my mom loves your comments. She always lols! Pink Puppy Love.. your secret is safe with me. I did want to bark back at you.. I did lick the bottom of the pb jar. Tell your mom to step away.. I then shake it when I'm done and destroy it. My mom doesn't wrangle it until plastic starts flying.

I forgot about those who are on a diet.. sorry mate. I will let you smell my mango madness though. I lick it off.. it's delicious. a tasty treat alternative?????

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Eric and Petey...

Do you have the audicity to doubt my veracity; to insinuate I would prevaricate? Your obnoxious dispostions are beyond my recognition and if the terms I employ are too copius for your diminuitive comprehension, than I shall endeavor to articulate more particularly....

Loqacious Lacie

Spellin' is not my forte.

dee & tula said...

Your pain is heard all over the blogs... I had to come and see for myself. I say, an eye for an eye.. start your own square parent free zone! go for the shoes go for shoes.

Of course, that's coming from someone who doesn't live there :) gulp.

good luck!
kiss kisses,
tula

Bae Bae said...

Aww.. what nice gifts from Toffee. Pinky Winky wants to know if it's safe from your stuffie round up?

Good evening Eric
The party of Valentine is wonderful time.
And, it dances in the place wonderful.
The dream runs about the world, and the card of love comes.
It is necessary to train horse riding. :D
