Kickin' Dale Butt???

Mumsie here...yes, I know I'm takin' over the blog...but it's just for a minute. Lacie will post later re Stuffie Stan's progress...(slow...very slow!!)

BUT. DO YOU SEE THE MESS IN THESE PICTURES? LOOK CLOSELY. Yep...that's the bottom rack of my dishwasher. On the floor. With dirty dishes and silverware everywhere. AND no very very guilty Dale to be seen. (He was cowering behind my spouse.)

Do you have any idea how difficult is is to speak firmly (euphenism for yell at) a dog when he's managed to pull this one off? Without laughing or killing him. Sigh. I laughed.

Stanley decided that the spatula I had just used to make egg sandwiches was not completely clean...even after frenzied licking. I was closing the dishwasher when that....RAT, that BEAST absconded with the ENTIRE RACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And carried it across the kitchen until it fell with a resounding crash. Why he just didn't take the spatula, is something only a Dale could answer. Why I have dogs...another good question. AND...we're watching Bruvver's fiance's doggie this week for her....FOUR DOGS. I'm thinkin' bout going back to bed.

Love, Mumsie

Get out the poopie bags, Baby Stan, because you're in it but good. Mumsie may be importing that gator for you to play with if you keep up this behavior. Gee, this makes that one time I accidentally peed on the bed (and the comforter, and the sheets, and the mattress pad) look like nothing! You're making the rest of us terriers look good.

You'd better watch yourself, BabyStan, or you'll find yourself on the short leash.

Your concerned pal,


Maggie & Mitch said...

Holy Moley, Stan! How did you ever manage to do this?! Did you get that spatula clean? Gosh, we sure hope so after all that!
Does Bruvver's fiance have a Terrier too?

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Ferndoggle said...

Don't tell Mumsie...but Stan is officially my hero! I try to eat stuff out of the dishwasher all the time and Mom screams at me. I need to come over to your house & take some lessons!


Booker the Treeing Walker said...

Wow that is an AWESOME mess! When Booker gets absconds with something from the kitchen, he takes it right into his kennel. Can you imagine the whole dishwasher rack in his kennel? If something is missing, we know right where to look first. I call him the "magpie-dog."

Deetz said...

Oh my lord......I am even going to go hide so you can't find me, I swear, I did not do it.

Gaia the Airedale said...

Huck said...

You're like the Incredible Hulk! "YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE ME WHEN I'M HUNGRY..." *Babystan begins to turn green*

Jackson said...

Oops! Looks like you're in the doghouse again, Stan! J x

Joe Stains said...

MY HERO! OMDOG you are amazing Stan. I bow in your greatness. If only there was carpeting so a stain could have been made!!!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Oh our dawgness, how could you BabyStan??? You must be an awfully strong superdale to pull that whole rack out of there. Geez, if we even look at silverware in the dishwasher Mama says NO!
Update for you too, Snickers has been ok today so far. She seems tired, but other than that ok. She's never had a seizure before this. She wasn't stressed or anything like that. We were reading that it could be caused from her Hypothyroidism. Inspector Butcho needs to do some more reading research on the matter. How many seizures has Lacie had?? We hope she doesn't get anymore of them either.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Agatha and Archie said...

Uh Mrs Mumsie,A+A here.Don't be mad at Babystan(remember those lovely baby days when we called him that that little bundle of fur??)Of course he might have had some help......it would be a little hard to do that all by yourself.....but with 6 other legs...piece of cake...Archie go run to the kitchen for a minute and try this... be right back... Love A+A

Gus said...

oh my....I am so honored.

My scruffy butt in the place of honor. Oh, be still my heart!

pee esss...muzzer had a doggie that used to bring her um, used feminine protection items out of the bathrrrroom and present them to "young gentlemen callers." So see, Baby Stan is OK. Can we have pix of the visitor?


Lorenza said...

Trying to imagine the whole episode makes me laugh!
Kisses and hugs

Moco said...

That is one great pair of jaws. Good job on that dishwasher tray. I can see that you were just trying to unload it. No matter they weren't washed.

Pacco de Mongrel said...

hey guys....great job on ruining the kitchen and increasing ur mussie blood pressure...

i will definately hide myself for good until all the fire from anger is stop

duo_disaster said...

How did you do that?

BabyStan is trying to help in dishwashing huh?

Licks along,
Rudolf + Goofy

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Oh dear. I dont think BabyStan meant to do that. He's probably just trying to help with the dishes

Noah the Airedale said...

Bravo Stan...we thought we were good at licking out the dishwasher but you take the cake matie. That is one thorough job. We are in awe of you.....picture us bowing at the computer.

Hugs and tail wags

Amber-Mae said...

Yikes! Stan, your Mum sounds pretty pissed off. Quick, put on those puppy eyes!

Butt wiggles,

Asta Marie said...

Well, Mumsie, I think you have a handful there. I can tell you that we NEVER did anything like that. We love to lick the spoons and dishes but to lick the dishwasher rack....unheard of. What sort of punishment is BabyStan getting? I say take all the racks out of the dishwasher, put him in and close the door...that'll teach him!

Asta Marie, WFT

BrandytheGreat said...

Ahh, GREAT job Stan. What else can I say? Hoomans never do clean their plates properly, aite?

Mango said...

Bad black and tan! Bad bad bad. Tell mumsie, she doesn't have a dog, she has an airedale... whole nother proposition. Hey, at least nothing got ger-broken.


P.S. Momma has been very slow posting the pictures of me and Hector nursing Stuffy Stan. He'll be like totally healed by the time she gets around to it. Grrr...

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Stan, you are my hero! I, Poppy have been trying to do that for ages! Now, Patches is joining in so maybe the two of us will succeed one day! It's a good thing Mumsie laughed or we might see your name show up as an available 'dale on the Airedale Rescue website!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Mango said...

Hey you guys! Check out my bloggy. I got some pics with stuffie stan.


Peanut said...

Oh hahaha that is so something Peanut would do.

Eric said...

Wow Stan! I'm SO in awe, how did you manage the whole rack? I manage a swift lick or two now n then but ..gee... you are my hero of the week but don't tell your Mumsie or my 2 leggeded... hope the naughty corner was worth it for the eggy spatula... doesn't seem like a good pay off really...

Wags of respect. Eric

Hi, Baby Stan -

And we thought we did a good job when we ate that dictionary trying to help Mama with her homework....

Mama told us that she does not want us to learn that trick. Too bad this wasn't in a video. This is pretty funny.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
