Babystan here....GUESS WHAT??? OK...this is a subject Mumsie hasn't been dwellin' on. Ya see, I am Bruvver's doggie. At least the parts of me that don't make a mess...

Now Bruvver graduated from obedience college this Spring and got engaged to Auntie S. as you already know. News flash.... he STARTS A REAL JOB on Monday. That means since I'm mostly his....he gets to pay for all my rawhide and stuff. And I have a very hefty appetite. (Mumsie can't wait till he forks over that little plastic card he's enjoyed for way too long....ya know one of those thingies Lacie and her girlie pals take shoppin' to pay for stuff with?? ) Anyway, I digress.

The job is right here in the Burgh!!! And he's wantin' to move out of our basement.

Mumsie was dreadin' the day he leaves...not only cuz she'd miss him...but CUZ SHE'D DIE WITHOUT ME!!!!!

So she refused to think about it. Until today. Cuz Bruvver and Auntie S. BOUGHT A HOUSE. They move in in mid-August. And guess what?


Look at Lac and me in the above pic...she's roachin' and I'm singing for JOY! (Scruffy celebrated by racing back and forth with a ball in his mouth. Now that I think about it, that's also how Scruffy acts when he's depressed. His behavior pretty much stays the same no matter what his mood is!)

This is the BEST NEWS EVER!!!!!

Happy, happy, and relieved BARKS!!!!

Babystan, Scruffy, Lacie AND Mumsie!

Pee Ess We discovered last night that I detest fireworks....we are sending ALL our terrier zen to dogs and kitties in countries who are at war. We can't imagine how they deal with all of those horrible scary sounds daily. And fireworks are for entertainin' people, not hurtin' them. Those animals must be very scared all the time. Let's all hope for PEACE in our world!



Wow!! You gonna have 2 houses to live in. How cool is that. You will still be bloggie we hope?


Lacy said...

Sorry to hear the fireworks up set you.

Pats & pets to all

Maggie & Mitch said...

This is AWESOME news, Stan! Congrats on your bruvver's new job and new house!
I totally understand about the fireworks! I HATE them too and you're right - we can't possibly imagine what it's like to be a soldier and hear them 24/7!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Gus said...

WOOO HOOO...two houses to mess up. Just what you needed. We discovered we don't like fireworks either. They happen a lot closer here than in Azrizona...we swear!


Petey said...

Wow, are we going to change your name to OnlyStan because you'll be the only dog in the house! Are Lacie and Scruffy already talking about what they're going to do to your old room and planning a yard sale with your old toys?

Your pal,


Ruby Bleu said...

Oh that is so great! Mumsie must be happy!!!

Lots of Licks, ruby

Amber-Mae said...

Mango said...

I got worried reading that bloggie, like maybe there was a custody battle coming up or something. Thank goodness it all worked out.


Putter said...

the 4 Bs said...

hey Babystan, that's terrific news. if you play this right, you should be able to get treats at each house. now that Bruvver has a job, he can buy you lots and lots of treats. yummmm....


Joe Stains said...

Stan, this is EXACTLY what happened to me and it is the BEST THING EVER. Dad was living with his Mom and Dad when he got me then he wanted to move in with my Mom but gram and gramps said OH NO WE WOULD DIIIIIIIIIIIIE WITHOUT JOEY so I went back and forth. It RULED. Now I am stuck here all the time with the Doofus. The lesson here, DONT let Bruvver get another dog. ever.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Stan!
Congratulations to your Brudder!
Maybe you can be with Scruffy and Lacie during the day and then go to your house at night!
Kisses and hugs

Toffee said...

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Scruffy, Lacie and baby Stan -

Wow you will have two houses? That is good news about the job, house and Mumsie being happy.

I (Hershey) am like you - I don't like fireworks, firecrackers, cars backfiring or any of those noises. Mama and I support our soldiers and hope they will be home soon.

Hope you had a good 4th of July.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. Kaci is coming to visit again soon.

Huskee Boy said...

Koobuss said...

Yes, peace in the world would be wonderful, but since that will never happen, let's just hope for peace in the neighborhood. Knowing humans, that's about the best that they can do.

Anyway, congratulations to bruvver and his fiancee on their new home. We're glad that they will be so close. Also, congratulations to bruvver on his new job! That's great, too. Looks like everything is falling in place for him. How nice.

We know that mumsie will be lonesome and miss BabyStan, so my dears Scruffy and Lacie, you will just have to get into more and more trouble of your own so that mumsie will be kept too busy to miss Stan. How's that for a solution?

Once again, congratulations, best wishes, and good luck to bruvver in his new job, house, and upcoming marriage! Talk about life changes!! Wow!! He is having them all at once! From a carefree college student at PSU to a yuppie with a commute to a house in the suburbs and a big dog! HA, HA!! Boy, did he grow up fast!

Love and Koobuss Kissses,

BrandytheGreat said...

Wow! Glad to hear it!
Butts crossed for those poor lil fellas!

Mango said...

Lacie -
Thanks for all your help with the nursing duties. I think the suds did make pee-wee feel better, but he is still a little gimpy.


Dewey Dewster said...

BabyStan gets shared by Mumsie 'n big Bruvver 'n doesn't move far away from where he lives right now....what an excitin' if ya can get the little plastic card away from big Bruvver....yer Mumsie will be floatin' on cloud nine fer sure....ya have it made guys !!!!!

Dewey Dewster here....

Moco said...

I hope you don't get confused living in two places. Hold out for the best treats.

Jackson said...

Hey pals, how pawsome that you'll have 2 places to call home! That's gotta mean double treats and double toys, right?

Momo & Pinot said...
