Flashdance, the Musical starring Scruffy

Stan guess what!!! We had a real musical premier in in Pittsburgh this week. Over-sized sweatshirts....leg warmers...can you guess????? FLASHDANCE!!! The movie was filmed here in da Burgh in the eighties. A call was put out for knitters here in the city...and did they knit. They outfitted numerous dinosaurs to keep them warm this winter.

Lookie at this uglee dinosaur....pretty awful, huh, but pretty stylin' warmers!!

Now we all know Scruffy is one crayon short of a full box. But look at this next pic. We knew several of the stars were actually from Pittsburgh....but we had NO IDEA who one of those stars was!!!!

Summer Flashback!!!

Summer flashback...we never posted these, but thought you'd like to meet our rubber chickens....note my best side is facing the camera....
Miss the pool....sadly it's been put away for the winter.....
There is nothing more delectable than fresh bird.....especially with a squeaker!!
The Beastie's makeup seems to have slipped....
Now Stan loves the chickens....but, boy, was he ever thirsty.....

A Terrier-Bear Picnic!!!

If you go down in the woods today you're sure of a big surprise

If you go down in the woods today you'd better go in disguise

For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain

Because today's the day the Terrier- Bears have their picnic!!

It's a bootiful fall day....Clacie Stuffie, Aire-Bear and Scruffy Wheelie decided to have a picnic. Of course Clacie decided we MUST have tea.....stuffed her face with scones and cream, that one.....we're sitting on our bootiful new quilt by Mama Lamb....actually she made Clacie, Aire-bear and restored the Scruffy Wheelie from an old one that looked like it should have been tossed in the trash...she is amazingly talented....!!!
See the pretty tag she made so Mumsie's great great grandbabies will  know who made the quilt and when!!!! We will be immortal!
Ruh-ro...some foreigner is coming to our Picnic.....are we safe??????'s Real Stanley....he's least it wasn't Real Lacie or Real Scruffy...things coulda gotten sorta HOTaround here with the picnic.......

What's with the book "THREE BAD PUPS?" We haven't done one Naughty Terrier thing on our picnic...we've used our napkins, said please and thank you and didn't even burp!!!

Wanna come and join us?????

Mumsie was so my fault. We've had an electric fence now for five years. The dogs have been great with I became complacent with the collars.

Today was a beautiful day...dogs were outside with us all day...planted some mums and came inside and realized Scruffy was still out. Called dog...looked in all usual places like under the deck. No Scruffy.

Realized as I had been stripping him this morning he didn't even have his flat ID. He is microchipped. John was looking in woods...have acres and acres behind our house. I got in the car and drove the neighborhood...Susan, Brian and my neighbor were all out, too. It was getting dark. Susan called me out of breath from running and said John found him. He barely saw him. He was in the woods very close to our house but out of the electric fence line. And he was ALL THE WAY IN a ground hog's hole. John said he never made a sound...he called response. He got right beside him and Scruffy kept digging and digging...only his tail was visible. The rest of him was in the hole. John pulled him out and got snapped at for his trouble.

He must have chased a groundhog right out of our yard. He actually had a 6 inch stick wedged in his mouth. I had bathed and brushed him out this morning...not a mat on the dog...tonight, he looked as above...dreadlocks, covered in burrs and muddy bright red paw pads and extremely angry we interrupted his fun.

I don't know how we ever found him. I took him out tonight on a leash and he was very respectful of the fence. We will be doing some retraining and won't be complacent about the collars.....dodged that bullet.

Hug your dogs!!!!

Mumsie who is probably covered in poison ivy along with the rest of the family.

Maybe Mango was in that hole? Watching over us, that one!!!

To Mango With Love......

To Our Mango....

How does one decide which picture to post to honor your life? We have zillions. And each one reflects your Relentlessly Hooge spirit...BIG!

I have so many adjectives to describe you...cocky, sarcastic, flatulent, drooly, fabulous, witty, rude and oh, so very very funny. I remember trying to describe your new (then) blog to someone...helicopter, Hector, understated and really big dog all come to mind.

I can't write more now as the screen is all blurry for some reason....but this pic is how I choose to remember, handsome, and in a skirt with no undies on.

I know there will be a HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGE new star in the Heavens tonight...but Mango as you run and dance and twirl and play with your Raja and sweet Angus and all the others who came to greet you....just remember...we're down're up there...AND I WILL SO BE LOOKIN' UP YOUR SKIRT!!!

All my love....


And her stoopid brothers, too. And Mumsie who is back with the kleenex again....
