OH MAN; WHAT A WEEKEND!! total count, we had around 80 dogs here for poker Friday night. Just a small gathering! It was a slaughter....yep, girls against the guys...had poker teams.....yep, we whipped the fur of the girls. (Lacie; Scruffy....take it like a man and tell the truth!!!) was a lopsided victory. (Lacie; SCRUFFY!!!!!) OK, OK....the girls beat us by a small margin. (Lacie; it was a butt spankin'. ) Moving on...thanks to the Dales for using the woods. Um...we seemed to have a small beer can issue, however....fortunately Mumsie had a root canal on Friday...she spent most of the weekend on the sofa zoned on Vicodin ES. Thank Dog she didn't seem to notice the mess....

This is Lacie....I sent Scruffy and Seymour to work on the basement. Mumsie's stirring on the sofa, and I fear she may be descending soon into netherregions down there and be overcome with bear fumes.

The above pic was sniped from Asta's blog. We begged Ruby to bring us home from England, so Jackson could have a break from illness and play some poker with the guys. Judging from his inebriated state as I put him back on the plane Saturday, he seemed to have recovered from his rough month. I had a tough time boarding Aire Ruby having accidentally gotten locked in Jackson's closet with it was a bit rushed for the departure. I thought I hurt my paw then, as it was very sore. BUT, when we got home to the's what we found!

This must be what SNOW is!! Well, I rewrenched my paw chasing Scruffy and had to go the vets...AGAIN. I BROKE A NAIL! Like all the way down at the pad on my paw. They put a big red bandage on my cuz it matched my collar, and now I am hobbling pathetically all over the place. I also hate to walk outside with it....SO much easier to pee on the carpet!
I still managed to go with Koobie, Scruffy and those fabulous Whippets in the Whippetmobile to the Penn State/Michigan State game. Joe Paterno had a terrible time getting the whippets to stop chasing the football. Those are some runners!!!!!!!!!

We staggered home exhausted, and found THIS. A kousin dog....and her name's STELLA. OMD....she is also a stellanator. She and Scruffy would roach and wrassle....I kept thinkin' she was gettin too rough with my I'd attack and bark and bark and bark. Stella's mom...Kousin Melissa actually had the tenacity to call me YAPPY. Me...who they bred the flaky out of the Lakie does not yap. Harumph. (Scruffy....she yaps.....)

I had her carefully treed under the table!!!

As much as I hate to compliment her....she does have an amazing tail.....look at the highlights....she sets it every night with those giant rollers.

We did a triple down stay to impress the hoomans. Look at my poor paw. It's awful. Poor Lacie.

Look at her and Scruffy wrassling. I mean, I had to intervene. Scruffy could have been injured. He has such tiny little teeth.....

We want to thank the Whippets for driving us to Michigan. Ya shoulda seen em in the coats we provided. Dale coats....they had skinny whippet heads and big FURRY Dale bodies. They looked Fab!

Most importantly,we also want to thank Sweet Asta for our bloggie award!!!!! This award is presented to a successful blogger, one who can “be the blog” - making it their own, staying with it, interacting with the readers, and just plain having fun. We feel very honored by this....Scruffy and I love to laugh and smile....blogging has made us do both....many times a day! We'd like the pass this award onto Sweet Koobuss' Blog.....and to dear Miss Sunshade. We love visiting their blogs, and come out happier than when we went in!!!!

Gotta run and think bout packin' our bags for Thanksgiving. It seems Scruffy and I are off to "camp." And me with a sore paw. Poooooooor Lacie!!!!!

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for the award and your kind words. I am honored.

Lacie, poor little sweetie, good luck with your paw. How awful that must have been. At least you have a nice red bandage.

Thanks again for a fun weekend. The whippets were great! Too bad Penn State wasn't.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Amber-Mae said...

Oh my, how much did each of you drink? I can't remember how much I drank coz I was totally black out after...I don't know how many. Oh Lacie, your poor paw paw. Hope it heals soon. Oh wow, it's already snowing there! You must be sooo happee.

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Harry said...

Thank you for hosting an excellent poker night. I hope no one was too upset that I was a bit of a hustler! Apologies again for Cassidy tagging along. I'll use some of my winnings to pay for daycare for her for any future get togethers.

Toodle pip,

Ruby Bleu said...

OMD...what a weekend Lacie, what a weekend. I hope you paw feels better soon and have a great time at camp! I'll miss ya!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Stanley said...

Lacie Girl!

Looks like *your* Stellanator is not as bossy as *my* Stellanator! She does look like she's keeping Scruffy entertained, though, and that means a break for you, right?

Take care of your paw,girlie. Someday I'd like to hear how you *really* hurt it.

Congratulations on your award. You more than deserve it!

Goober love,

Maggie & Mitch said...

Gus said...

POOOOR Lacie. Tell your mum that newspaper bags (or produce bags ) make pretty good wellies.


Mojo said...

What a brilliant night. My head still pounds a little, but it was worth it! I know, I got confused and thought Poker was a command to Poke Her. Sorry for jabbing all the ladies in the ribs all night. I'm still a pup and can't help myself.

Poor Lacie with a broken toenail! Sounds really ouch!!! Get better soon.

Scruffy looks wild wrassling with Stella! He's a blur - all apart from his teeth.

And congrats on the BTB award. Richly deserved, you two!

big kisses

Lenny said...

You guys are so busy! Hey, at the game, did you hear about the D-Fence? I've heard about it and I've always wanted to see if you could leave pee-mail on it. Go Big Ten!

Hope your paw feels better soon, Lacie!

Your friend, Lenny

Lorenza said...

Are you saying that you drank all those beers?? Wow!
I hope Laci's toe nail is not in much pain. Sure I hope it gets better soon!
Have a good night

Kirby said...

What a weekend! You guys really know how to have a great time. I had the BEST time at poker. Thank you so much for including me. I may have come home stinky, but I came home happy!! I hope Lacie's paw is feeling better. Poor thing. Mommy breaks her nails all the time, but has never had to wrap it up.

Your pal,

Dewey Dewster said...


Dewey Dewster here.....Oh dear, my little tan princess, what has happened to you and your poor paw? Ya shoulda rung me up on my IPhone and I woulda been there pronto with my best bedside manner. Dr. Dewey to the rescue...why I woulda climbed right in that delish looking dog bed with you and kissed the boo boo away and then kissed your sweet face...then kissed your nose, then.....well, you know the rest. I'm still bummed out by the Steeler loss yesterday but I can be right over if ya need tiny little baby sweet cakes. Just don't let my Mom know and can we keep Mumsie out of the house too?

Molly and Taffy said...

Oh poor Lacie. We do hope your paw gets better really quickly, it must be very sore.

Have a happy Thanksgiving Day.

MOlly and Taffy

Noah the Airedale said...

Wow what a mess we made with all those cans. Hope the clean up wasn't too painful.
How is the foot going? Any better?

Hugs and tail wags

Randi said...

Hey Scruffy & Lacie..

Lacie..I'm so sorry about your paw paw..but at least you fashionably coordinate with your collar & the upcoming holiday season....& you look like a great poker player too...all the cleverness in your eyes just oozes out...& that new cousin of yours...such a pretty tail..& her highlights are very pretty...I don't think I could do blonde highlights in my tail..wouldn't look very natural...

Love & Licks,

Jackson said...

Hey Lacie, how's your paw? I had a toenail removed once and it was NO FUN AT ALL! At least you've got a nice red bandage. It's good to be colour co-ordinated at all times. J x

Poor Lacie. I certainly hope your paw gets better soon.
