Scream for Ice Cream??!!

Hi Everyone!
This is Lacie and NO I am not too short to type; Scruffy had not made me aware of "our" blog. Hmm...see if I give him computer time this week. I am THE sensible terrier in the family. The parents refer to me as the "Perfect Puppy." They referred to Scruff as the "Puppy from Hell." Oh, do I have some stories about his puppyhood, (that I wasn't even here to witness, but have heard repeatedly) that I will share with you sometime. It's just too much effort to be bad. Especially when Scruff is bad ALL THE TIME, and I can sit around and laugh.
I trained Scruff in about 20 minutes the first day I came to live here in the 'Burg. (Will have to switch my allegiences to the Steelers from the Eagles, but I digress.) I weighed all of 6 lbs. Scruffy had a bone. I went up to him and asked for it nicely. He refused to give it up, so I exploded with a loud puppy bark. Poor old Scruff was so startled he dropped it. Now I don't even have to bark. He just forks them over. He's paper trained too. (What a mess; not for me a sensible Lakeland.) As soon as Scruff saw I was amply rewarded for my outdoor "performances" he got the picture pretty fast. I was frankly horrified the first time Mommy gave the "pee" command and darned if wily Wiry didn't lift his leg and hit me with his best shot...the golden shower. Sharp as a tack, that one.
The above is the pic that I would have sent in to the Airechicks contest, if Scuffy (the ?former) blog manager had known about it. Deeeeelish, I love ice cream!!
Have a favor to ask you all. Anyone know anything about "dyed mulch?" The 'Rents (cool talk for parents) are landscaping, and this was offered to them. Frankly, it sounds toxic, though they SAY it isn't...."completely safe for all pets...." hmm sounds like a load (pawdon the pun). Plus, it will certainly get all over the Wiry Fox's white legs. (Sensible dogs don't wear white out to play....red, black and brown works so much better...) OPINIONS, anyone...about the mulch that is...Mom won't get it, I know, but we wondered if any of you had heard of this stuff......Lacie

About the mulch, sorry I can't help but that is a good reason to join FTN (did you say you did already?) - they have an email list and all the humans on there are foxie enthusiasts with lots of doggie experience. I bet they could help! If you haven't joined yet, let my Mom know and she can pose the question for you in the meantime. Mom's email is editordan2002 at yahoo.

I'm not sure about the mulch because my mom doesn't use it but we do have to say that that's an awesome picture of you with that ice cream cone! The Army of Four might know about the mulch question.

Love ya lots,
Maggie

Have a gweat weekend

Lacie Girl!

I'm with Asta! It's good to hear your voice! Sounds to me like you're a saucy girl - just what Scruffy needs in a sis. I know you're a Lakeland, but it's fun to know a pupgirl who looks like me but is about 1/10 my size.

Come visit me soon! I'm pawsitive we're gonna be good buds! I've already linked you to my page. Do the same if you want!

Love your ice cream pic! You make that ice cream look even tastier!

Goober love,
Stanley
