Dog. I'm n nnn nervous. Makes me ss stu stut stutttterrr. Favour everybloggie. Check me out??? Make ssss s sure I'm looking okey dokey?? Got impawtant visitors visiting all the way from over the big pee. Toffee's Mmm mmmmom. Course my Tttt ttttoffee is coming too. But. Gulp. Not met her Mom before. First impressions cc cc ccount. Been busy while I'm waiting in the naughty corner.

Yeah. Back here again. Something to do with Mom baking home made eeetalian bread for friends coming over for dinner. And me practising levitation and telepathy skills once it came out of the oven. That bread plopped straight into my mouth. RESULT!!!! Some sort of miracle 'eh? Don't have photos. Of the look of horror on Mom's face when she discovered me munching on the bread minutes before our friends were due. Or the surprise on mine and hers when she screamed "leave it" And I did. But I'd guzzled down half of it already. No big deal. Stuffed to my lugholes by then. Didn't stop me from throwing up seconds later for double bubble. Or Mom, quick as a flash, wiping it up. Crying shame none of those were captured on film for your entertainments. And zippo of the bread being thrown in the bin in blind panic as Mom was saying many many many naughty words. By rights bloggies she should be in this corner not me.

Anyways. My preparations. Had a ...

Yep. Been scrub-a-dub dubbing .....

even my collar tidemark. . .

had a special spring strip too.

Even got a clean pair of heels...harharhar!!!!! In case I need to leggeded it .....

when Toffee's Mom finds out my sweetie's been doin' graffiti on the cars of Boston.

And tee heee!! Pee mailing me naughty photos of herself in PJ's!!!! Boy, I'm one lucky loved up pup.

Been barking at the magnolias trees to wait up a day or two to burst into blossom. Cos Toffee's Mom loves Spring flowers. Even ordered them skies to be blue and the sun to shine.

Ok. Come. Here. Cccc closer.Cccrikey sorry. Ss stutters back. Put your s ss snooter 'gainst the screen. Ready?? Check this...............

HUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHH. Not got kittie log breath have I????

Donned my groovy collar. Hot from the NY dogwalks...

little me Eric sniffed it out on a shopping trip with best pal Petey's Mom and mine. In New Yawk. A Merry Car. Pawfect for this fashion hound. N nnnnearly ready.

Hot to fox trot??? Wait up. Nearly flippin' forgot...

my crowning glory!!!!! All done. Ready and waiting for the state visit. Bring it on!!!! VIP's. Be waiting here in the corner for you. In the meantime, I'm crossing my paws n
barking for my chum Jackson. He's feline a bit under the weather and waiting for test results. Could you do the same please? Ta.

Hi Eric
Our mum didn't seem to need pictures for the first part of your story. She managed to giggle away imagining your mum's surprise at finding you eating the italian bread with visitors about to arrive!
The follow on chucking it up was just the icing on the cake. Well it would certainly have focused your mother. One minute she is thinking - no bread - next minute - vomit on the floor and visitors due.
We completely agree that if you mum said naughty words then she is certainly the one who should go to the naughty corner.
We feel she is partly responsible for leaving that tempting, fresh smelling bread within reach. Our Dad doesnt even make it home from the shops with fresh bread - it has bits missing where he started to eat it in the car!
And they expect you to resist - well done indeed for giving her back half of the bread. She could have trimmed up the edges and nobody would have been any the wiser!
May we say you look very well groomed in your pictures - we expect you will be smelling sweet. If you want to be a serious love interest however we suggest that next time you are out you look for something suitable to roll in.
Our mum's last basset once rolled in a used nappy he had found on the beach. The amonia smell was with him for weeks if not months. So far we have not surpassed that - any chance of a used nappy where you walk?
We will pop over and leave basset best wishes to your chum Jackson. We dont like to think of any poor dog waiting for test results!
Now stay out that naughty corner - at least you made it to New York!
love and kisses

Oh fellow square dog -- we two have also been bitten by the love bug and so appreciate the ssssstutters. Sadly, no pawsonal visits are anticipated -- but virtual romance has its mmmmmomwents too.

We are in awe of your bread performance. Having just stopped by A+A's bloggie to read that they snarfed two PB+J sandwiches intended for their Dad's lunch, we are starting to feel as though something is seriously amiss in our behavior. JH took one stinkin' cracker from a pile Mom had left on the table a few days ago. But that's it.

What's a naughty corner for, if not for a square dog or two??? Keep up the good work -- and enjoy your visit with Toffee and her mom!!!

Do we need to send the Heron-cam over to get a ful report???

Wirey love, pal,

Jake and Just Harry

Gus said...


Paws are crossed for Jackson pal...seems an habitual posture for one thing or another recently, right?

And we know you will be fine for the visit. You are lookin' really regal, and we smooshed muzzer's face into the screenie to check for (ahem) bad breath. No eeeuw sounds coming from her. No sounds at all, actually. Do you think Teka might have pushed too hard.


Dughallmor Beagles said...

Oh Eric, you crack us up dude! What a result with the bread...and what a shame you didn't get to eat it second time round...tsk tsk, it's not good manners to waste food, you'll just have to be quicker next time!
I hope you struggled in that least a little bit....oh come on dawg, you're letting the side down, dogs are supposed to stink!
You do scrub up well though, your Sweetie Toffee won't be able to keep her paws off cool that she sends you naughty pee-mail, she's a real goer...ooh-err!
Have fun, Your Royal Dogness and keep us posted on the state visit, so excited fur ya!

Petey said...

Well done bestest pal! Certainly your Mum's friends will be grateful that you saved them from certain carbo overload and so close to swimsuit season (when Mommy goes into hibernation). I've met Toffee's Mommy already and she's a fine 2-legged - you have nothing to worry about as I already whispered some glowing words about you in her ear. That bath might have been for naught. Oh well. As for your breath, it's a bit yeasty from all that bread and chucking. Perhaps an extra-crispy KitKat log is in order?

You and Toffee looked so glamourous whirling and twirling and wig-wagging across the private garden. Good move(s)!

Your pal,


Ruby Bleu said...

And eaten.

Eric! We're very very impressed by your levitation and telepathy skills ... the chief's been baking and cooking too but all we get is smells. No chance to steal freshly baked yummies there. We'd pay you a gadzillion bones if you could just teach us how!

Needing very little consumer credit rating can be a massive impediment when getting a payday loan. Banks need to have adequate enough advice to create a selection. Not enough credit is actually a missing out on chunk with the puzzle. This indicates this homeowner never up to now took capital, had no credit card, not any references that might examine his/her personal effectiveness. Needing not any credit standing [url=]szybki kredyt lukas bank[/url] isn't only problematic concerning enjoying a loan product, nevertheless it really may possibly also become a frustration throughout other locations with your life, for instance any time looking for ways to a rental (landlords take a look at credit rating and additionally work references as a result of different landlords). Alternatively, everyone had simply no credit rating at the start. It's important to beginning to produce any credit score at some time for everyday living. Certainly, there should often be at the first try just for all. Fortunately, there are actually loan merchants whom keep in mind virtually no credit history is often a refreshing begin and also a opportunity fresh prospect [url=]kredyt bez bik[/url] just for years into the future. Nevertheless banks in addition to debit card providers get exact offering standards, increase consumer credit rating isn’t not possible, while it can be tricky. There are particular methods of reducing no credit ranking, one example is removing a strong set up lending products with a a guarantee or possibly a co-signer, seeking for a good collateralled mastercard, continuing to keep present-day files good, for example.

Cash advances will not be the best application for the purpose of developing credit. As the situation associated with inescapable fact, they can make credit history exclusively with cash advance lenders, still do nothing at all intended for old fashioned banks just like financial institutions.

Quite a few approximately fast payday loans, nonetheless, might be [url=]kredyty pozabankowe pod weksel[/url] the advantage that hardly any banking institutions absolutely look at your current credit ranking, thus it doesn’t truly really make a difference in case you have hardly any credit ranking or possibly awful consumer credit once you even so endure an effective possibility of having permitted for that bank loan you would like. Zero credit ranking take a look at can be a problem solver for fear that an urgent situation position comes about anytime income is desirable speedy and another doesn't have any credit ratings or even bad credit history and lacks the enough time to work towards creating hey credit standing. Wage day loan merchants you should not ask clumsy questions plus they can't demand equity [url=]pożyczki prywatne[/url] or perhaps a co-signer nevertheless offer instant payday cash advances on the same time about use typically.

Obtaining virtually no credit may be a huge obstruction when making an application for a loan. Loan creditors must have a sufficient amount of facts to create a option. A shortage of credit rating is actually a losing part inside the bigger picture. It signifies this borrower hasn't before approved dollars, possessed basically no credit lines, hardly any credentials that could examine his/her fiscal operation. Obtaining virtually no credit ratings [url=]pożyczki prywatne[/url] is not only precarious in relation to getting a payday loan, it also can also be a issues on the areas associated with your life, for instance if looking for ways to a flat (landlords assess credit scores not to mention suggestions by other landlords). Even so, every person received hardly any credit history before you start. You should get started to produce an individual's credit ranking sooner or later during lifespan. There should be to start with with regard to all the things. Fortuitously, one can find loan creditors whom keep in mind that not any credit is usually a clean start out in addition to a opportunity different prospect [url=]szybka pożyczka[/url] just for years into the future. Despite the fact that finance institutions in addition to credit-based card issuers own tough offering wants, developing credit rating isn’t unachievable, despite the fact that it would be difficult. There are several ways of eradicating certainly no consumer credit, one example is applying for a great installation funds with a protection or perhaps co-signer, obtaining some collateralled bank card, trying to keep recent reports balanced, accessories.

Fast payday loans most likely the highest resource for the purpose of coming up to consumer credit rating. For a topic from truth, they can create credit score basically within payday advance providers, however , do not a thing for the purpose of standard loan companies such as banks.

The great thing around cash advance loans, however, is [url=]pożyczka na dowód[/url] the belief that little or no loan merchants absolutely test ones credit ranking, since it doesn’t certainly issue if you suffer from zero credit ranking or bad credit ratings as you always take a position a very good probability of getting authorized for just a bank loan you require. Zero credit scores test is a issue solver in the case a serious event position occurs when income is essential quick the other is without credit rating and / or awful credit standing and merely has no time to run developing hi there credit score. Salaryday providers you should not question embarrassing problems and also they don't really want assets [url=]chwilówki dla zadłużonych[/url] maybe a co-signer although offer easy payday advances for a passing fancy time involving application form in many instances. They're also fairly fast and also simple. Furthermore, they are simply for sale 24/7 as well as weekends and even holiday season. Nevertheless, cash advance loans can be short-term in addition to small-dollar personal loans utilizing increased low interest rates as well as money charges. As a consequence, cash loans tend to be for people who happen to be sure they should manage to pay for to pay any lending product backside after it is owing.
