The "Black and Tan Only" Club......

Babystan here. I've been thinkin'. Yesterday, Lacie and I organized a and tan dogs only. We're the only members and we were wrasslin', roachin', playin' bitey face, and hide and seek. Scruffy wasn't invited to play. And he wanted to! But we didn't let him. And now.......

I feel terrible about it. He wrote to Asta bout it and was sobbing in the comment. She wrote back and wanted to know if we would exclude her too cuz she wasn't black and tan. Of course we wouldn't. It's not right and would make both her and Scruffy feel badly.

Here's Lac and me just chillin'. Scruffy wasn't allowed in the room. Now I'm thinkin' we owe Scruff an apology. It's not fair to not play with him cuz he has different fur from us, is it?

So we're back to our usual spots. Lacie in the swivel rocker lifeguardin' the "boyz." (Look at that face....would you dare to swim too far out if she were on the chair?????)

She has this grin she makes that inspires terror in all boy dogs hearts.

Lookie how nicely Scruffy and I are playing when she is guarding!

Scruffy looks happier now!!! We promise we'll do better and not leave him out of our games!!!!!

Hey BabyStan...yeah, good you and Lacie had a change of heart! Not letting Scruffy play because of the color of his fur is not right, but you figured it out!!! You are so smart!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Butchy & Snickers said...

Awwwwwh, that's so nice to let Scruffy play in the black & tan games, heheheheh! You have a bigger heart than a lot of people in this world! Too bad all people of every race & color can't get along as well as you three do. Wouldn't that be pawsome??
Have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers
PS Have your Mama email me how it's going with the coats & BabyStan.

Patience-please said...

Well, shoot, give Scruff a happy butt sniff times nine from us! He must have been sadder than forever and happy as can be now.

Koobuss said...

Hey Scruffy,

I guess that I can't play either. Don't worry about them, my dear Scruff. You still have me. Look at you, sweetie, in that one picture. You are SO outnumbered. It's not fair.

Maybe we can form our own club if we have to. There's you, me, kousin Asta, Butchy and Snickers,
Agatha and Archie, Jake and Just Harry, Gus, Jackson, etc. Then we can have THEM outnumbered.

So they relented and let you in their club only after you complained. Big deal!! Their original intent was to exclude you. Your feelings must be very hurt.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Asta said...

Oh BabyStan

Kisses and hugs

Faya said...

Waouw, one moment I have tought you were turning into humans.... they do stupid things like this....
Kisses, Faya

Stanley said...


I've got to say I'm glad you had a change of heart, cuz I couldn't be part of anything that set out to descriminate against my ScruffMan. Call me a traitor to my fur, but I don't care about anydog's fur color.

I love ya, man, but I don't have much else to say right now. More later.

Goober love,

Scruffman! Shake it off, buddy. They're showing their age.

Maggie & Mitch said...

We're glad you had a change of heart! You're family, no matter what color your fur is, and you've gotta stick together!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Jackson said...

Poor Scruffy! Glad it's all been resolved. Why can't humans do the same? J x

Amber-Mae said...

Aww, that's a really nice picture of Stan! Oh, that was not fair that you left out Scruffy. Poor boy. But I'm glad you let him join the fun after that.

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Harry said...

Quite right, you should all play nicely together. Poor Scruffy, I hope he's stopped crying know.

Toodle pip,
Harry x

Gus said...

Wow...I didn't even know we had a crisis thingy goin on. Glad it is resolved, and so glad BabyStan has learned his lesson. We do hope that if you bring him to the super bowl pawty, he doesn't start any of that stuff around here. Muzzer won't like it.


oops, I have just spilled the beans

Agatha and Archie said...

WOW we were clueless too!! Man we are soooooo glad you guys had a change of heart because Archie was putting on his pilot outfit to come and pick up Scruff man( which is interesing because he doesnt know how to fly but said he would learn for Scruffy) and he was going to say it was for WFTs ony(even though he didnt want to say that) and he was getting really anxious over the whole thing.... so I am glad the whole crisis is over....Lvoe Agatha+Archie

Poooooorrrr Scruffy, if Babystan and Lacie are mean to you, then you can come live with us, where we are NOT black & tan either. it looks like they are being nicer to you now though.

you can tell your mom that despite the peeing in the new car (ouch. that's a bad one), she will love caring for the 3 of you. bigger messes to clean, more dishes to wash, more food to buy, more trips to the vet (more $$$ too), more barking at the mailman, more poop to scoop, more destruction of your yard - it's all good. that's what our mom says. she loves us too much to even think of being inconvenienced. we really have her trained. hee hee.


Joe Stains said...

Don't be mean guys!! poor scruffy :(


Scruffy & Lacy,

We will be back tomorrow since we finally got our computer fixed. We have a lot of blog reading to catchup on but the Mommy said since we have company it would be rude to do anything more than say hello.

Check bqack tomorrow because we have lots of updating to do.

Bradley is doing GREAT.

I've missed you guys. Congrats on your new brother.

Love Mona

Simba said...

Awww..yes, not good to exclude any pup based on their fur...what a good lesson! (but I know I'd be allowed in the Black and Tan club! BOL! That's what my breed was originally called!!)



Noah the Airedale said...

Oooooh good thing you had a change of heart Babystan. Poor Scruffy and all your other maties who aren't black and tan, they would be feeling sad if you didn't change your mind. We knew you'd do the right thing.

Hugs and tail wags

Mom grew up in SA where the black and brown clubs suffered terrible. She is very happy you stopped this nonsense and came to your senses. Never heard of dogs exhibiting racist inclinations!!
Now be good Lacey and Stan!

(I am black, brown and white. Harmony incarnate)

jaffeboy said...

Lenny said...

Hey guys! Wow, you have been so busy! So much excitement in your house. I am so excited for you and I am looking forward to reading about Babystan's adventures. You're cheering for Ohio State tonight, right? Go Big Ten!

Your friend, Lenny

Lenny said...

Isn't "Black and Tan" a kind of beverage? I think there should be a drink named for fox terriers too. Out of fairness.

Your friend, Lenny

Hercules said...

What a wonderful story of a lesson learned. I would be in the black and tan only club, but I just love playing...Glad you changed the rules...Maybe it should be named: The Black and Tan Only Club With the Exception That All Other Doggies of All Colors Can Join Too. That would be a good name, right?

Love, Herc

Asta said...

Ferndoggle said...

Black & Tan only??? Good thing you apologized to Scruff. I was about to form the "If you don't have lots of white furs, go home!" club.
