More Tug Trauma.....

Hi Everyone.....Lacie here....First of all, we had a blast talkin' to everyone in chat this weekend....Asta said it is like a big family!!!!

Speakin of families,the boyz tried to kill me again this weekend. Look at the pic above...see how the toy is wrapped 'round my neck while Stan and Scruffy play tug????? Yep...they'd jerk me back and forth like a metronome on a piano set on high..... Well, that wasn't even the worst of it...

Here's this STOOOPID toy. It stretches so you can play tuggie with it......

Now Babystan doesn't usually get into tug all that much, but he is puttin' forth some effort here....note those white Dale toofers....he uses Crest Whitestrips every morning. Vain, isn't he???
OK....this was the TRAUMA.....Scruff had one end...Stan had the other....and the middle was under my little Lakie body. Only Daddy saw this horrible event and didn't have a camera to document this horrible incident. Well, Scruff pulled really hard...and Stan pulled really hard....AND THEY LIFTED ME RIGHT UP IN THE AIR AND WERE PLAYIN' TUG OF WAR WITH ME STUCK IN THE MIDDLE!!!!! I was suspended in midair of this stoopid toy while they tore all over the yard.
I was furious! Barks can't express the rage. Finally, I had enough and reached over and bit Scruffy. He dropped his end and I fell off in the grass. I have no idea why Daddy was laughin' so hard. That's a sure sign of a demented mind.

I couldn't stay mad at the boyz for too I am monitering who's winnin' the game....

Scruffy I reached in to help Babystan....he's still a puppy, ya know!

The match looks pretty even right now....I was shoutin' my Lakie lungs out!!!!

Well...Babystan won but was exhausted from his efforts. (Do you think my highlights are too blond????)

Babystan decided to do a bit of a roach......

Lookee at what I have to deal with in a simple game of bitey-face. He gnashes and snaps like somethin' outta Jaws II. It's only with super-Lakie effort I can keep these boyz in line!!!!

Gus said...

so sorry we missed you all in chat. Lacie you are doing a good job keeping those boys in line...I hope you are getting extra treats.


Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...


Thank goodness you weren't too traumatized that you couldn't get that blog out! I laughed and snapped at every photo! That's looks like an awesome time. I'm a bit smaller than Baby Stan, but I woulda helped you out for sure...we coulda taken them on! I could have at least given you a boost!

Penny & Poppy said...

We sure wish we could see a video of that too! It's a good thing you are such a resilient little Lakie! Maybe you need to learn how to do Aire-snaps to keep those boyz in line.

Lacie...I am sure glad you are okay...I bet you didn't know where you were going to land..they could have slingshotted you to China!!!

Stella said...

Miss Lacieeeee!

Hey, cuteness! You are WAY better than I'd ever be lifeguarding those 2 boys! I'd be gnashing and biting a lot myself, sad to say.

I need some advice, girlie. Until lately, whenever smelly Stanley would go off about someone walking past our house I would bark at him to tell him to simmer down, then he'd go lay down (like my girl tells him to do) and I'd go to my house for a little time out.

NOW, however, I have started biting his booty whenever he starts barking wildly out the front window and he doesn't like that ONE BIT! (Pun is intended here, fren.) I only started doing this a couple of days ago, but I'm getting even BOLDER. I'm afraid Stanley may break me in half when he snaps back at me (after I bite his butt). What should I do? How do I get rid of this habit? Please help me... you're the only one who can.

Goobery love & tons of itty bitty kissiepoos,

Agatha and Archie said...

We would have payed to see you flying!! PL2 is still laughing.Archie just said he wouldn't have paid because he thinks it wasn't funny and the boys should have given you the toy.We are also waiting with baited breath for your answer to Stella......this is going to be ripe we can tell!!! Lvoe A+A

erin said...

Lacie, if I were there I certainly would have tried to rescue you. I know I look all sweet and submissive (and most of the time I am) but I don't tolerate any doggie mistreatment! I'm relieved to know that you survived the ordeal.

Joe Stains said...

That toy looks SO fun! I am so sorry to hear you were dragged all over by it though, that doesn't sound fun. Do you guys growl the whole time you play tug? we do, it makes mom crazy!

meemsnyc said...

Wow, that is one major pully toy!

Amber-Mae said...

Oh my, that poor toy. It's sooo stretchy isn't it! I bet those boys can carry me up too. Hee!

Love licks,

Those boys have got it all over you Lacie. You could have been hurt caught up in that toy.
Hey I had a great time in the chatroom and it was good to catch you there.

Deetz said...

Oh cool!!! Let me know if you find that picture for the entry. I can't get over that first picture of you guys tugging on that toy....and your head stuck in the

Eric said...

Lacie , oh ... my little Lacie. My Mom is a-hooting and a-howling at your story... she seems to find it very funny. Me, NO I do NOT. Those boyz. What Do they think they are doing to you?

Flinging you around like some old frisbee! Tossing you like a pancake in a frypan!Throwing you around like a storm in a tea cup!

Are you hurt little Lacie???? Shall I hike a ride to come over and kissey you better???????

By the way I've been staring at your highlights for quite sometime now and my eyes have gone all square. Sigh. They look just pawfect to me.

Jackson said...

Hehehe, sounds like life is always fun in your house, Lacie! Tug is my favourite game, so if I'd been there I don't think I'd have been much help! J x

Koobuss said...

Oh boy, Lacie! You sure have your paws full with those guys! You are way outnumbered, plus they are so much bigger than you. What a traumatic experience that ride must have been, yet you still managed to keep your cool. All this, and humans laughing at you, to!. You are indeed one tough Lakie. Way to go, girl!!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
