Hi everybloggie! What a weekend. Choc-a-block full of fun and excitement! For starters. Two square puppies arrived at their homes. Wag over to welcome them!

Katie who arrived on saturday and Bertie arrived on Monday! Scoot over to sneak a peak of our welcome party on Lacie's blog!

Yep puppies! You'll need to enrol in Eric Training the Leggeds lessons. I'm Master of the Art. Had the squares tearing here and there this weekend. Lookie and learn puppers!! Most important. Rule numero uno. Tire them out. Always take them for a wicked long walkie. Where you can run. Off lead of course for mayhem and mischief.

Give 'em encouraging words on your walkies. To begin with. Impatient ones when they don't obey you the first time.

Repeat over. And over. Seems. They suffer our selective hearing syndrome too.

Insist they stop to put their peepers on England's green and pleasants.

Indulge your leggeds. Bark on boring thingies. Like their own idle yapper yapper. Before you command them to a local watering hole.

Pull 'em along to show the way.

Insist they have soft drinks (they'll be driving home as your snoozing)

While you down neat vodka straight from the bottle. Puppers. WFT stands for "what the foxy" Nothing naughty.Teehee! Is it everybloggie?

Remember. No table manners called for when you're not at home. Specially when the foods called a Tapas sharing plate.

Yep. Bad behaviour gets you your own dog food scrumptiousness. Then teeny tidbits of theirs 'cos of your constant terrierising. Once you've lulled your leggeds into a false sense of security. Being good. Next day. Time for Rule 2! Keep your leggeds on their tootsies. Remember little onesies. Nobody. Out foxies a foxy!!!

My preferred mayhem and mischief? Post Party Pampering. Drive's 'em wild.

Tried out me and Petey's new spa line didn't I. MASH. Combination of Mud 'n Ash. Not too soon for me to make a volcano joke is it? Or should I've waited for the dust to settle???!!! HAAAAAA(It did.The night before. Only a fairy dusting.)Katie! Bertie! Count on me for assistance any time won't you? That's it. Your first lesson.


William Tell said...

Yes, Katie and Bertie, we all take lessons from the Square Dog on how to keep our peeps on their toes! LOL

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Gus said...

Eric....Oh Man, me and Teka were clearly deficient in training our hoomans. As a result, we have NEVER gotten to snatch tapas or drink Vodka from the bottle.

You truly are an extraordinary wire.


Martha and Bailey said...

Eric, you will make a fine example of a wirey for the new pups!
Once they are settled we think we should take them out in the zoomer.
Well as long as they are not car sick, you know what these young ones are like!
You have done such a fine job with your leggeds it shouldn't take the pups long to follow your lead.
We are very excited about Bertie but had no idea about Katie.
How cool that there are to be two new wirey terrors.......oh sorry we did mean terriers!

houndstooth said...

Those are excellent woofs to live by! The most important is to keep them on their toes and waiting on you hand and foot!


Agatha and Archie said...

HAAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAAAAAAA How come you didn't show the shot of you with the lamp shade on your head???!! WE KNEW SOMETHING REALLY GOOD WAS COMING DIDN'T WE ARCH?? ARCHIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEe what are you doing dancing up and down the hall??? PL2 said that plate looked yummy and made her hungry even though she just ate( she is a little piggie that one) Love A+A PS how long did it take to get that stuff off of you?? and ho ho hee hee hee hee har har WHAT DID THE TUB LOOK LIKE???!!!!!

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Katie and Bertie will go far with your mentoring!


Mango said...

Great instructional post... I think.

I am not certain about that mud bath spa treatment thing. Looks kind of extreme to the Mango.


The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

We're so glad you are giving your advice so we can bring Ruairi up in the right terrierizing fashion!

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi

tula said...

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hi Eric,
Gail sent me over to say hi, and to let you knpw that I've now got my very own blog. I guess I'm going to learn a lot from reading your - very educational indeed!
Toodle pip!

Lorenza said...

I am sure Katie and Bertie took note of your lesson!
Mash! Oh-oh!
Kisses and hugs

Jake of Florida said...

Eric old square pal -- you are so correct -- our new pupsters have to train their leggeds right from the start. No bad habits. No procrastinating.

Thank doG they have you for a role model.

We seem to have our peeps pretty well trained -- but every once in a while they break ranks and we have to set them straight again.

We forgive your volcano joke -- mom can't resist a good pun.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

ScrapsofMe said...

....and don't forget the games you need to play with them, like hide the remote, the keys and the cellphone. Then there is the aerobic training like dash down the street with no leash. And the agility training they get when you run under parked cars (avoid the moving ones), around bushes and under fences. These 3 things will have them reaching, bending, stretching, working on their balance and increasing their heart rate. All good things for your peeps to keep in shape.



TwoSpecialWires said...

Two more reasons to sneak ourselves over. Tapas. And Mash. We live MUCH too conservative a life.

You are our role model, Eric. In all departments except for Wheelie Care. (We know you're going to be a superior pupster primary teacher.)

(Grabbing and printing that photo of the black snout. I'm wanting Arch to teach me how to do that this summer, as long as I'm learning new digging skills.)

Jake (and Fergi, too ... she can help you teach feltie destruction)

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



What WERE you rolling in?

That doesn't look like ordinary mud plus ash...IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WERE IN A SWAMP...with things


Make haste to the bath, dear boy...

Your Spring is four weeks late?

Ours it three weeks early...

The Peonies are getting ready to bloom...weird...they do that at the end of May...

You drink Vodka? What's that? (Lacie giggles...) And what are those white things that look like birdie eggs on that foodables plate?

Please ask Miss Enid to stop by...tell her I have a new hobby...and it's PROPER...

Lac!! XXOO

Asta said...

smoochie kisses

Petey said...

Well done, Bestie. Somedog has got to take these whelps under their paw and you are just the dog to do it. They are a fine looking dastardly duo, aren't they?

And I just know you're going to look stunning when you wash off the mud pack. Remember, for maximum results, it must not be removed for two weeks.

Your pal,


Dewey Dewster said...

Geez Eric....that was a great lesson, fer sure. I think ya need ta put that inta a book...ya know.... one ta get it would be on the best seller list in no time....

Pssst, Eric...don't include the dirty face picture....sheesh Gram would kill us fer sure if we got THAT DIRTY !!!! I am not my Mom, ya know....who puts 'er face right in the mud....

Dewey Dewster here.....


hi square pal

you are master trainer that is for certain.. especially getting right to the bar for pawtinis and tapas. They are a bit of dawdlers you may want to attach a leash to them to keep em moving.

Hey I've done that spa treatment before.. great for soft fur. I'm gonna swing over to your new pals to say hi bad boy style.

PS I'm excited about your pawdance film festival entry! hooah! I know it'll be down and dirty. Our pal bruce the cat sent an entry. he may need a kitty contender too- hint hint

Bruce said...

Who turned out the lights Eric? Where'd ya go, where'd ya go? You got into some serious mud there pal!
your cat friend,

Sam and Pippen said...

Wow! Those are great lessons for any pup, not just new ones! And where is that spa? We can't find any MASH over here and think it would be great for our complexion!

Sam and Pippen
