Oh well!

When woo hear them say they don't like it, woo khan say "I told woo so!"


Mango said...

Huh? After all your hard work they made the paper on the walls?

At least it coordinates with your wirey self.


chicamom85 said...

You worked very hard on that, good job, get some rest.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Bruce said...

Eric & Otis...I just don't know what to think about you two. You get me laughing so much when I come to visit you that I can hardly see straight to read! I think I will call you Silly #1 and Silly #2. And I am sorry that your Mom didn't take your decorating advice. Sometimes a dog just can't catch a break! Don't give up though cuz I'm sure there are other rooms in the house that will need to be redecorated!
your cat pal,

the 4 Bs said...

after all of that work that you went to, Eric. that's just not right that they chose wall paper! we wish you could come here and help our mom pick out colors. she's lame. and dumb. and doesn't know white from white.


Lorenza said...

Oh, Eric!
I am so sorry. All that work and effort for nothing!
Kisses and hugs

Gus said...

Hey! You know they only did that because YOU are the perfect white, and nothing so plain and ordinary as paint can compare, so they obviously chose the paper to cooordinate with you!

Hey Buddy! Your choice of colors was just right. Shame on your folks for turning to wall paper instead of paint.
Our folks never listen to us either. Oh well, the life of a dog.
Smooches to ya!

Sally said...

Wow Eric - we didn't realise your hidden talents - D needs to paint a room - and this has inspired us to choose a colour for her too!

The paper is nice too - next time you are wet and dirty just run in the room and shake yourself - that will add some Eric touches too!

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Petey said...


Je pense tu est un combination au beaucoup des coleurs --un soupcon au Mouse's Back, un petit dash au Dead Salmon et un drop au Savage Ground et aussi un splash au Elephant's Breath!

C'est ci bon!

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

Now Eric...the black and white paper matches you pawfectly (when ur clean) they just need some tan/ginger colored accents to bring the whole room together, don't ya think???

I need to start comparin' Scruffy to a paint chart...his paws now have a lot of green in 'em cuz the grass just got a haircut...

Barkin' sweet dog...

Perhaps you could come and help Mumsie with paint colors????

Love and kisses...Laciegirlie

Toffee said...

Quelle horreur! Do you think they did this while you were at Petey's wedding? You know what they say? "While the wire fox is away the 2-leggeds will play, er, wallpaper"

btw mom thinks the paper is tres chic!


Jake of Florida said...

Even though we are not C.A.T. people (actually we're not even people), we kind of like Otis Grey -- and might have selected that for am attraction wall (see we know ze decorating linguage alzo).

Our two expatriate wheelie lookalikes --who have been looking in vain for someone to parler le French avec -- were quite excited to read your post. They wanted to know more about this whole Eric Square Dog as decorator concept -- and we filled them in. Not sure what they will do with this new information -- but be on the qui vive!!!

Momo and Pinot said...

Eric, you and Otis look so sweet together. Mmmm.. so... all the efort you guys made, your humans picked wall paper? Did you at least get 'thank you treats' or something?? Our mom thinks the wall paper looks very chic and she loves it. :)

We're laughing so hard. Petey's pawty was hilarious!!

Doctor Dre said...

That's okay Eric. you can come over & decorate me house anytime!

by the way me mom say your Otis looks just like the cat she used to have before she met me. his name was sidetrack. (RIP)

Dr. Dre


You are a dirty white? Hmmm.. I can see what Otis is saying. I was wondering where your eyes are in these photos? It looks like your reading braille swatches.. very talented.

I know, I have been fairly well behaved for being two. i keep going to these good dog 201 classes. And I keep going on runs.. on lock down with a leash... can't do the Mr. B stuff on a string?!! It's a tricky games by mom. I have big plans for the year though... You can always send me some ideas.


Butchy and Snickers said...

Oh no, after all of your hard work with the paint chart?? Geez, hoomans! Maybe you should add some yellow to the wallpaper, tee hee. That'll teach 'em.
Thank you for the birthday wishes for Snickers too!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Hi there Eric!

Am impressed with youe skill colour wise.

I finally found a snapshot of my WFT doggy sister - my 'Wheelie' Judy posted it here

Love, pats & pets

umekotyan said...

Good evening eric
A perfect color is requested.
The chart tells everything.
Of course, it is light that it is anxious.
Slightly different according to light color felt-tipped marker.
Is the act of coloring necessary as matched it to the chart or. ?:D

Stanislaw said...

I think you need to take care of business yourself. Humans are so fickle - they should have gone with their first idea. Next time make sure you roll in ACTUAL thick, brown, goopy mud and repaint that wall YOURSELF. It'll have to be thick to cover up that papery stuff.

Ohh! OR you can just go for it and shred the paper! FUN FUN FUN!!

Anonymous said...

Whoosh! Lotza work. Ah but you discover that you are the color beauty o ful! YAY!

I ruv you!!

Bruce said...

Thanks for the visit Eric. We've been really busy at the shop too. Gotta get the cars ready to leave for a real special event in California the end of next week. That's a whole lot of miles for those cars to have to travel from Florida to California. Been way to crazy for me. I'm not getting enough attention so I'll be glad when things get back to normal again.
your cat pal,

Martha Basset said...

Hi Eric, you know there are times, and this is one of them, where we wonder why we canines even bother to help!
Our efforts do not appear to be appreciated one little bit and yet we try so hard.
We ourselves have just helped our Dad to smooth down the varnish on the outside bench - the fact that we are both now shades of teak seems to have escaped him as he complains about a few hairs.
Lets just not bother.
We have missed you - home for a few days to dry out - apparently from the rain as opposed to the alcohol!!!
love and kisses
Martha & Bailey xxxx

Bruce said...

Otis, it doesn't matter if you missed the purrs4peace this week cuz we're having it every week for a year! You'll have plenty of time to purr.
Have a good week!
Your pal,
