Hey bloggies.Got an award from my buddy Bruce. Cool for cats huh? Thanks a million Brucey!

Strange. How we look-a-likie isn't it? He's a clever claws. Supervises sooping up some super doooper cars. Wag over why don't you? But be GOOD. None of that chasing business. Bruce mewed I have to list my Life is Grands for the award. Okey Dokey. Here we go.

1. I wag all over off my lead. Brings Bounty. Bonuses too. Give it a go. Last weekend I got myself Bounty with a capital B. I was sniffing with my hooter snoooter in the ferns like so ...

Next minute Mom went all giddy.Cos TADAAAAA!!!!! I put on a magic show like this......

and pulled out a poor Over the Bridge Bunny from them ferns. Yumm!!! Had him nicely clenched in my snappers for a quick snackie when I heard them naughty naughty Chanel 4 After the Watershed Words screamed at me. "Drop it" . I did. Before I even had a chance to yap "abracadabra" and tap my wand I was back on my lead. Doh. I'm a dummy. Think my brain bonce is shrinking? Or something?

2.Off lead brings Bonuses. Take last Friday in the Rugby field. What happened? I found my second bone in that Kicking (?) Field..haaaaaaaa!!!! But. No sooner I'd got that bone clenched in paws n jaws when "blablabla". Yeah. You know. Darn and damnation. Mean Mom took my bone home. Here it is. Bark about impressive.

Then this Tuesday I only found me BONE NUMBER THREE!!!!! WEEEHEEEEEEE!! In the woods this time. I can tell you, that got the Squares scratching their old noggins. Billy bonus for me though huh? In a word. NO. Got caught short. Ever tried to poop and and eat together? It's like patting your bonce and rubbing your belly with your paw at the same time. Or. One for the leggededs. Sit. Lift the right leg and rotate your foot clockwise, at the same time, with your right hand, draw a number six in the air. Watch 'em try that everybloggie. Will make you hoot!!! They can't do it, that footie always changes direction!!! Hehehehee!!!See??? So. back to my point.Which was it's difficult to do. Tried it? Pooping and eating together? I had to put that bone down. Course. Daddi Square swooped in and swiped my bone away. But never fear bloggies there will be another Eric Bonus Bone. I know it. Why? Silly Daddy threw that bone away in the same woods. Whoot!!! He's definately got brain shrink. Haaaaaaa!!!

3. Got my one and only sweetie Toffee pupcake. The bestest blogging pals too. That's you. Doggies. And you. Kitties. You too. Leggededs. Please take this Life is Grand Award from me to you.(Remember to list your grands)

4. Shucks. It's my barkday this weekend. I'll be three. Toffee Mom's too the day before mine. Golly Gosh. I'm in good company. Barking Happy Birthday to you TM! Hope you get oooodles of stuffies. Anyways. Been mighty troubled bout using up my Terrible Two's by their sell by date. But phew. No need. Had a most most pawsome thought. Going to convert my Terrible Two's to Triple Troubles. Smart move eh? And decided not going to use them troubles till next week. Cos the Squares might've got me a huge marrow bone for my barkday. Plus there's this super special box ....

just out of reach. From my sweetie pupcake. Guess What .That box. It's stuffed full of snoggies!!!!! For doggies. Woarrrrr!!!!!!!

Can hardly wagging wait.


Gus said...

Well, you are still just a pup, but you are doing a goood job of helping your humans age quickly.


Joe Stains said...

I can't believe they didn't let you eat that rabbit?! I am sure it was still tasty and fresh. You are a good bone finder, we can't find crap around here except maybe some cat poo. Wait that is crap. Anyway I have never tried pooping and eating at the same time but I am guessing Tanner may have. Happy Barkday Buddy.

Simba and Jazzi said...

We would like to try rabbit, but the humans say no.

Bruce said...

Happy Third Barkday, Eric. Make the most of it!

Hooooeee! You should have seen Mom trying to do that twirling foot and sixes thing. She couldn't. hee hee hee!!!

Happy Tails,

Jake of Florida said...

Take it from a mature seven-year old like me, Jake (and from a silly doofus almost-five year old like me, JH) -- it doesn't matter if we're two or three or four, or more -- we're still terrierific foxies and that means Puptime Forever!!!

Happy Barkday this weekend, pal!!!

We'll be at camp -- but we'll be thinking about you.

Jake and Just Harry

Bruce said...

Hi again Eric...I forgot to tell you how much I LOVE the photo of you where you look like ME:)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Eric!
You have found many treasures! Bunnies and bones! Sounds great to me... too bad they took them away!
Eating and pooping at the same time?? Hmmm... I don't think I can do that!
Kisses and hugs

TwoSpecialWires said...

Eric, we hope your barkday is super good. Maybe you'll get some new bones, and won't feel compelled to sniff out the dead dirty ones that get tossed back into the woods. Then, again, the dead dirt ones may be preferable. Try for a good walk ... maybe you can retrace your steps and find that one from the other day , and KEEP IT this time!

Barkday wishes,
Jake and Fergi

Toffee said...

Yayyy! You got it!
(actually we got the email from UPS saying it was delivered so we kinda knew before the post!)

there is more to come!....


I felt like I was playing a game of twister. Hmm. I admit I've held a stick and pooped but you topped that. What kind of bone is that?

Triple troubles=very clever my friend. What can you do to top the naughty boy honors from your twos?!!
Happy bark day eric! I can't wait to see what that sweetie got you..

Martha Basset said...

Hi Eric
We are so pleased to be back for your third birthday - the snow made us head back a day early!
We chased some rabbits on holiday but unfortunately didnt catch them.
We also tried chasing chickens and sheep........
We fear we may be banned from the Isle of Skye!
Have a really good birthday - hope you get lots of presents. Martha is three in the summer some time!!!
Martha & Bailey xx

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Eric....we hope you have a terrific Triple Troubles day! And get a juicy marrowbone and a nice off lead walk too :D Be sure to enjoy those snoggies from your Toffee pupcake in private won't you?
*sigh*....terrible waste of a good dead wabbit...terrible waste....tsk!

Have a great Barkday bud!
Slobbers xx

Mango said...

Lots of frustrations, little square one. No bunny, no bone, what is the point really?

That whole pooping and eating thing sounds kind of dangerous like you could pull a muscle or something.


Bruce said...'re've gotta come & look cuz I dedicated one photo to you!

the 4 Bs said...

hey Eric, happy barkday to you, kiddo. we know there's gonna be some great stuff in that box! yummmm..... you are doing a pawtastic job of finding bones on your walks. darn those 2-legs for taking them away from you. what are they thinking? probably want them for themselves. good job on the rabbit. we bet it smelled delightful.


Molly and Taffy said...

WE wish a very happy birthday Eric. Hope you find some more bones.

MOlly and Taffy

Lacy said...

Hey Eric...thanks for serenading me with that great Tom Jones song...I should have known that you were singing to me...silly me!! I had Kevin sing the whole song for me.

happy said...

Happy barkday Eric! Hope you had a great time!

Pooping and eating together? How do you do that? Hehehe...

Pee ess: I have an award for you.

Sally said...

Happy Barkday Eric

Sounds like you are keeping your humans on their toes - well done.

Your woods sound wonderful! Bones and bunnies everywhere! Why were the humans so disturbed - have they never heard of recycling?

Don't worry my humans are the same - I like to walk by fast food shops and pick up any stray chip or chicken bone - it makes D very colourful in her language - but what are we to do?

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Bruce said...

How was your BarkDay Eric? Hope you had lots of fun:) Come on over & meet some of my Man-Friends. There's one you'll especially like cuz he's from England!

Quincy said...

I am very familiar with the words "drop it!" I never get to eat anything I find on the ground or in a bush or on the supermarket floor or... well you get the picture.

Happy Belated Barday. I hope you had a great time.


Have a waggin good barkday! Maybe you'll have your day and fetch that bone in the field. Good catch- leggeds had a brain fart throwin that back in. Don't worry mr. bizerko has been around.. i'm too quick to catch on film.


Petey said...


Omidog, I missed your barkday! That's simply not fair, not fair at all. I must get Mommy out of her funk and into the car to go to this divine place called TAIL WAGGERS CAFE and load up the trunk with some Southern stuffies for my bestest pal! Was your birthday on the 9th or the 10th? (Mommy's is coming up on the 20th - you're both Tauruses! Bully Terriers!)

Sorry I missed the big celebration. I'm a bad dog.

Your pal,


Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Happy BarkDay to you Eric!This bloggie post was so much fun. Loved the bone story. We do that when we're up in N.Idaho, but with rawhide chews. Hootie found some that I had buried the year before and boy were they ugly. All black and scarey looking. He was so proud of his find. But then Mommy threw them away. Phooey. Can hardly wait to see what he finds this year! XOXO-BabyRocketDog

Marvin said...

oh Eric, thank you for sharing!

And rabbit is yummylicious, but always makes me sick......I have no idea why the humans always shout "drop it" when I nab one!

Happy Belated Barkday to youse as well, yes, keep on rocking Eric Square Dog!

Lotsalicks, Marvin xxxxxx

Tee said...

Hello there Eric

We loved your post about Rabbits and Bonus Bones. Aren't you a lucky dog to be able to find all those treasures ... we don't get that many bonus bones around Dog WOods ... unless its the left over ones that we've already chewed! :P

Happy Bark Days to you too and many man happy returns of the day! Must be terribly exciting to have that nice box sitting on top of tabletop just for yous.

Licks and Wags

The Dog WOods Pack

Bruce said...

On your next walk-about you need to keep those doggie eyes open for Kevin. I can't find him anywhere!

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

Bruce said...

Thanks for your help Eric. You always make me feel better cuz you get me laughing so hard!! Sharon finally told me that Kevin is in Germany at the Porsche factory. I'm hoping that he brings me back a big juicy bratwurst! He won't be back until Thursday so I'll have to try to keep myself busy for one more day!
