Defending the Perimeter...NOT!

Here I am guardin' the property from intruders and the like.
My helper, Scruffy. His tongue alone would scare anyone away!!!!! (Not to mention his NOT SO SWEET Foxy Breath. That stuff could be patented for self-defense usage.)

My other assistant, Babystan. Um, the ears are a problem. How can an INTRUDER take this Big Dale seriously?


We had a Terrier Stare Down. Can you believe the CHEEK of this guy??? ?Er girl?

What's missin' from this pic is the large Dale butt of Babystan. His tail is tucked quite securely between his leggies. Obviously, he was afraid Bambi was gonna take a nip of it.

Even Scruffy's mad barkin' couldn't convince this Wild Animal to leave......

We stood out here for what felt like forever. Then we heard Daddy pouring his cereal into his bowl. AHHHHHH....Kellogg's "Fresh Kill." One of Daddy's favorite flavors. The other name for it is Shredded Wheat Maple Brown Sugar. We came runnin' inside leaving Bambi out there. There was NO WAY we three terrier protectors were gonna miss a chance at sharin' breakfast.

BTW, not to drag out Mumsie's Barkday any longer than necessary, but remember the cake in the last post that Asta was flyin' in in the hot air balloon. Thought ya mite like to see the top of it before we ATE it!!! of Bruvver's college roomie's mom's makes cakes....and freehands the designs on the top. Have ya ever seen anything so 'dorable in ur life??? Do you think she made me a tad too blond???? Or fat? Icing is such a tough medium.....

That cake is too wonderful! My Mom woulda froze it and kept it forever!

Nothing like the taste of a fresh catch of cereal milk.

You really have to do something about those flipped-back ears,Stan! No one will ever take you seriously and giggling in your face is just plain rude!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Ruby Bleu said...

How bold of Bambi...that's your yard!! What a great cake! Was it yummy???

Lots of Licks, ruby

Agatha and Archie said...

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU THREE!!! A stare down!!!!You should have been nose to nose!! Although they are a bit bigger than we are.THat is a mighty cool look perfect Lacie darling(besides everyone know that if you are on a cake it puts 3 pounds on you) Lvoe and kisses A+A

Daisy said...

That cake is beautiful! I must admit that I would run and hide from the vishus deer, myself.

Gus said...

OK...I bet if you had scared that Bambi so it didn't make a meal on your garden, you might have gotten a piece of the cakey. Lacey, you look just beautiful, I am sure she only anticipated the lovely color your hair will be at the end of summer.


Kirby said...

OMG, I can't believe that deer wasn't scared off by you three, talk about brave. It's too funny that babystan was scared, but I bet I would have been too.

I've had the mini wheats that your Dad eats, that are so yummy. I come running when I hear them hitting the bowl too!

Mumsies cake is one of the best one I've ever seen, and so fitting. Happy belated birthday Mumsie! He he!

Your pal,

Lorenza said...

Hi, friends!
You were almost face to face with that deer! The nerve of him not to run away!
Ceral with milk is delicious, well, that is what my mom says because she never shares with me!
Kisses and hugs

Koobuss said...

Your visitor was a lot cuter than our visitor of a few days ago. I prefer fur to scales anytime. Although your guest was a lot taller than ours.

Ahem, guys, aren't you supposed to chase these big woodsy doggies off your property? You look like you were visiting with her. But you did the right thing when you went inside. Breakfast is much more important than chasing Bambi. She'd probably outrun you anyway.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess Scruffy, you are my hero, the way you stood up to her and all. I love you, Scruffy.

Koobuss said...

It's me, Koobie, again.

Very impressive cake! It must have broke Auntie Mumsie's heart to cut it.


Asta said...

Icing is such a tough medium, that Mommi has nevew even attempted to paint in it..WOW!!!! I love awe getting vewy blond my Sweet BFF

I can't believe the gall of that deews..doesn't he know it's YOUW house???

Noah the Airedale said...

The cake is excellent. Bet Mumsie was really surprised!

Hugs and tail wags

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Wow! We were excited about the deer until we saw the CAKE! Big Bruvver's roomie's mom did a great job! Much better idea to eat cake than to eat Bambi!

Keep up the guard're doin' a great job!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Amber-Mae said...

I can't believe you guys dared to go close to that Bambi. I think we would not be sooo daring coz we might get hoofed by it! Hey, like your Mumsie's cake. So cute!

Butt shakes,

Stanley said...

Lacie Girl!

I noticed that you were at the back of the pack during the staring contest. Good move. You're obviously the brains of the outfit.

Watch it next time Bambi comes calling! I've heard of them all-of-a-sudden running down dogs and trying to stomp them to death! I'm sure YOU could handle yourself, but I'm not so sure about your two... ahem, assistants.

The cake is almost too adorable to eat (that's what my girl said). Hoomans have no sense of the important. I told her, IT's CAKE, WOMAN! OF COURSE they're gonna eat it!

THat lady who free-handed you guys in icing is pretty stinkin' good. Maybe she was doing your end-of-the-summer coat, and that's why you're so blond.

Goober love & more birthday smooches to mumsie,

Pee Ess
Thanks for taking STella off my paws and out of my beard for a few days and letting her "help" therapyize Georgie Boy in NYC. It means a lot.

Mango said...

You are all very brave to stand up to bambi. You let him off easy.

That cake is adorable.


Sassy Kat said...

What wonderful watch doggies you all are! I think that the deer was so afraid that she couldn't move. Yes, that is it.
Happy birthday to the mom.
Oh give me an email I need to send you something. My e mail address is on my blog page.
Sassy & Momo

Eric said...


Pawsome guarding pals but me thinks the Bambi is a cardboard cut out . . .she isn't moving much. A bit like the cut out man you had before. Did you make it from the Shredded Wheat Maple Syrup boxes??? He,he,very clever, almost had me fooled for a minute or twenty.

Oh and Lacie, you ARE the icing on the cake, every time, you cutie pie.

Wags, Eric x

4xBs said...

oh we think that cake is adorable. did mumsie share it with you?

we can't believe you guys didn't chase that deer? Babystan! you're a big ferocious terrier, right? you need to run right out there and nip on that deer's heels. then run away fast! hee hee

woofs. (don't listen to us. Bailey is the dog who is afraid of horses. he wouldn't even walk down the road when the horses were behind the fence. heehee!!)

Toffee said...

That is such a yummy looking deer....I mean a yummy looking cake! Thank you for visiting my blog - I know that you have been so busy looking after Asta's daddi the fact that you took time to visit means a lot, thank you!

I think that you all look just pawfect on the cake!
Keep up the good work with defending your pawperty and helping Asta's dad!

Dewey Dewster said...

Butchy & Snickers said...

We know why the bambi didn't run away from you, it's a MAMA bambi & she probably had her little baby hidden in the grass somewhere.
Happy Birfday to your Mama! Sorry we are late. That cake is so pawsome! Mama decorates birfday cakes for fun, now she has some more ideas, hehehehe.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers
PS Did our email go through to Mumsie about the anti-anxiety vest?? With all of the internet problems in our area, some emails wouldn't even go out. Let us know, thanks!

Jackson said...

Hey pals, you're letting us terriers down by not chasing that deer. It was very bold, wasn't it! That cake looks so pawsome. Seems almost too good to eat! J x

Lenny said...

Wow, that's a brave deer!
Happy birthday to your mom! That cake is amazing.

Your friend, Lenny

Peanut said...

I would have tried to take a bite out of that bambi. Dinner yummy. That cake is lovely.
