THE NEW NIPPER

Hey everybloggie. Gather round my square. Got something exciting to bark about!!! Mom's friend is a new Daddy. AND. Bloggies. Guess what the leggeds called their nipper ??? ERIK!!! Haaaaa!!!! Pawfect. A boy named after a doggie. Makes a change. Usually the other way round. Mom says he wasn't named after me. Even though his name really is Erik. But I know. She only said that to stop my noggin becoming Mango sized. Whatever. This happy news sent Mom into a flurry of activity. Mainly of the Jiggery Pokery kind. Thoughless in the extreme when I'm sitting on her lappie.



The prodding and poking resulted in these weird things. Which Mom threw with careless abandon into our new washing machine. Crickey. Forgot to bark. The old washy went to the Dump Naughty Corner for not working. The new one spins so fast and furious it gets me whimpering like nipper Erik. But. I'm going to brave. Place myself in the drum with the door open. Cos it's spin force is so fierce it'll fling me straight over the pee to A Merry Car. Right into Pupcakes paws. Heheheee!!! Worth a try eh? I'll let you know. Back to my tale. The knitting. Alacabam! Shazam! Made itself into two... aahhhhhh dinky... pairs of bootsies in the washing machine.



Didn't make the Hush Little Baby PJ's too. Washy's clever. But not that clever. I bought them on my shopping spree for all things Eric. For Erik. Under Mom's trusty little waterproof Me Umbrella. To her favourite shop for all things moi. Cath Kidston



Geeeeeeez. It's been raining here forever. Mostly dogs. OK. OK. Maybe a few cats too.



Lookie. I bought this Eric for when Erik's bigger. Think stuffie'll grow into the bootsies?



Got the cutest sprogs t-shirt. Covered in me, me, me's. And that special nipper safe non-nipping stuffie dog. Who's almost me. Hmm. Or. More like my learned friend Hamish Esq? Hamish is on this baby bib with me. Awwww. All beyond cute. Going to buy it when it's back in stock next week.



Now. Wanted to show you a photo of little Erik. Mom says no can do. So. Done my artist impression of what I think he lookies like.....



Here he is. Teeheee!!! Isn't he quite the Sweet Pea? Hope he's going to wag at his presents. Welcome to the world Nipper Erik!

Now THAT is one cute baby. Much better looking than those red faced ones the two leggeds usually pop out. And we love the gifties, pawticularly the booties! Think your clever mum would share the pattern? I'd love a pair for winter nights when the fire goes down.

Mango said...

I am sure he looks just like that. Why else would he be called Eric?

Momma is most jelly of your new washy machine. She wants one of those super spin ones too. Ours is almost 20 years old, but it just won't die.

Slobbers,
Mango

WOW is that a cute baby!!!!! ANd PL2 is in LOVE with the booties and the brolly and the bib and the shirt AND ALL OF IT!!!!! She says we are getting a new washer too so we will ask for the one that spins to England Then you can come visit all the time. Archie barks at this old one ALL THE time so they are hoping for a really really quiet one...... Love and a zillion A+A

OH Eric...that puppers is the cutest boy ever...does he DATE????????? I can't believe they named him after you...maybe somebody will name their hooman pup Laciebeast...how cute would that be?

That washing monster sounds really really scary! Sometimes ours becomes mentally unbalanced and tries to walk across the floor making some kind of infernal racket....makes me shriek with rage to say the least....

Honestly...these hoomans and their appliances...I hate the oven and diswasher too...reminds me of a fox den...makes me bark with rage there too...

I am such a delight to be around.

Love ya lots...Laciegirlie

Baby Erik is quite handsome, just as handsome as you are I think. Mom says congratulations to the new parents.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

TwoSpecialWires said...

Eric! That babe IS undoubtedly quite the Sweet Pea! With a special family of friends to welcome him into the world. Those gifts are all beyond cute, and Moma's wondering if she can learn how to make booties like that for a little one we're waiting to arrive.

On a different note ... we're back home! Just arrived last night. And you know what that means ... we're making plans for an international adoption. We're getting pretty doggoned excited! (Moma'll be in touch, right away, she says. At the rate she's been going today, though, it could be a while. Stay patient. She's old.)

Barks of love,
Jake and Fergi

Now I know why he's called Erik if he looks as cute as you.

Hamish Westie said...

That Erik, the new human pup, must be the luckiest wee bairn in the whole world. Not only a fine name, also the incredibly cute toys and booties, AND a bib with two sorts of terriers (including a Westie). Catch 'em young, that's what I say...
Cheers, H,

Simba and Jazzi said...

If baby Erick looks like that he is super cute. We thought you might model the little boots.

Martha Basset said...

Oh how nice, a baby Erik! But one with a kicking k and not a curly c!
No offence Eric but we truly hope the baby does not look like that very creative photograph!!
We are thrilled to hear about the new baby and can only begin to imagine how much fun your leggededs are having shopping! We just loved those little booties!!
All our congratulations to the new parents and we trust that you will embark on a path of training this little human up to be a great respecter of us canines.
love and kisses

Petey said...

Oh Uncle Eric, maybe your Mum can make you some clever felted booties for the next time you have your itchy paws - much chicer than socks! A doggie at our run has a new baby brother named Luca, Mommy will have to try to make some of those cute felted booties for him. And once that bib gets a bit of oatmeal on it, it will be you and ME on it!

Your pal,

Petey

Maggie and Mitch said...

Awwwwwwwwwwww, baby Erik is just adorable and so are those felted booties! Your mom is so clever!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Joe Stains said...

If he is even half as cute as that little rendition you made, he will be the cutest kid I ever saw. Those booties are adorable, our washing machine can't make anything cool like that at all.

Aww. A namesake! The imagined image of BabyErik is adorable! I wish someone would name a hooman kid after me! That would be a funny hooman name, huh?

ps-Nice booties too. Yup.

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

ERic
I really wanted to see that washing machine air toss over the pee. That would be something. We both know that Erik is named after you. Who wouldn't want a son who dawns a dirty white furdoo, smarty and clever, square with a hint of naughty boy. And.. you look smashing in that peewee squirt's pjs.
