Water Safety Instruction? Or More?

Scruff here. Due to the success of my last post, and the fact Lacie is havin' a facial, I'm doin' the reportin' today. So yesterday was Wheelie Wednesday. And Gilbert didn't post. I'm thinkin' he's too busy.
Now there have been some rumors spreadin' bout possible Wheelie/Stuffie Takeover. RUMORS, just that. Now tell me if ya see anything suspicious in these pics. We dawgs are supposed to be keepin' our eyes peeled for signs of unrest. The above pic is our three oldest dawgs...combined age? Probably bout 150 years. There's some life wisdom inside those furballs.

Now what do ya suppose Gilbert, Foxy Puppet and Very Old Stuffie are talkin' about? Could it be a gardenin' lesson on Black Eyed Susans? Or 'splainin' the electric fence boundaries to which those dogs are darn close. Or something more sinister?

Look at the rapt expressions on those Stuffed Terrier faces! I can't get close enought to hear and not be seen.

Oh my...Foxy Puppet seems to have stabilized himself on something rather wobbly. Hey...THAT'S MINE! That's my Chuck It ball thrower. Giveitback!!!!!!

Oh, Good Grief. Is that what this is all about? Was Gilbert, et al just explainin' water safety rules? Or something more?

They look like they're ready to jump!

Um, this guy had an oopsie! Look at his beard drippin'. He's out dryin' in the sun now.
So, Scruffy signin' off here. I'm givin' no opinions on what this meeting was about. My job is to present the facts and allow you, Gentle Reader, to make your decisions.

All we see is a lot of great looking Wire stuffies looking adorable and having a good time! We see nothing sinister here! Last one in the pool is a rotten egg! hehehehe
Mom says that she pretty much doesn't sell anything that she makes. She either donates it or gives it away as a gift! We can put in a good word for you! Tell us what your fancy is, Lacie!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Eric said...

Look at those silly stuffies. . Barkin' mad..the lots of them whatever their combined age.

Don't they know only Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun????

Wags, Eric.

Watch em wheelies..... they might have sunburn.....

Petey said...

Looks like a coup to me. Myrna, you and Gilbert may be having a shotgun wedding and not in the traditional sense!

Your pal,

Ok Scruffman listen up!!! My Melitta is missin' and Hector didn't blog yesterday(rumor has it he is missin' too). Mango and I think they may have eloped. But after looking at that picture of the "rally" Gilbert had going on there I am just wondering if they are on their way to YOUR house for more instructions. Hmmmmm

Keep a look out!

Dewey Dewster said...


I think Eric was right on about those stuffies 'n wheelies takin' over...ya better watch yer step fer sure...why, didn't ya see 'em just takin' over yer swimmin' pool 'n yard there????? It's like the invasion of the terrier snatchers....yes siree......Scruff.....wake up now....better get movin' 'n rip the heads offa some of 'em before it's too late...'n ya lose it 'n Toby will stop by ta help ya if Stan won't.......

Gus said...

hmmm...never thought I would be glad to say it, but I am glad we don't have wheelies or stuffies at our house. Muzzer of course, feels differently, but I don't think she fully understands the implications.

And ya know, that house where Lacie is helping nurse Snickers is FULL of wild wheelies!


the 4 Bs said...

we did a little bit of lip reading here and we could make out the words "get Scruffy"..."take him down"... "band together"... now we're not sure what that is all about, but our stuffies are doing a bunch of whispering lately too.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Scruffy!
Those meetings are very suspicious! I am afraid they are planning something that you will not like!
Keep and eye on them!
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

All I can say is I feel pretty good about the fact that we don't have wheelies in this house. The only stuffy around here is Cowboy Pig and Mom's OLD OLD OLD bear. Maybe I should check on those two???

Koobuss said...

WOW!!! You guys sure have a lot of stuffies at your house. You are way outnumbered. I'd be worried, if I were you. If they ever do decide to revolt, you will have your paws full. Is there anything that I can do to help?

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess Scruffy, are we still going steady? I never hear from you any more. If you are no longer interested in me, I'll just have to find somebody else. (cry, cry)

Jackson said...

Hey Scruffy, mmm, looks like they're planning something BIG! I'm getting concerned! J x

Mango said...

I don't like the looks of that gang of stuffies. Hector is still MIA along with GI Joe. They are up to something.


Deetz said...

ummmm, it is looking rather suspicious to me. I don't have any wheelies in my yard or house. I wonder if they were voting to let Lacie be there swim instructor, since she is an avid swimmer and going over lesson schedules....I am sure that is what it was.

Harry said...

Hmmm, I'd keep a very close eye on that lot if I were you, I'm sure they're up to no good!

meemsnyc said...

Oh my goodness that is so cute.

Pacco de Mongrel said...

wow! it seems to me they are on the verge of dominating the household..

i hope u won't let that happen

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

We're assuming that all 3 of you real doggies were locked up somewhere! Otherwise, there would probably be a snow storm of sorts around the pool! They are all very cute and we hope that meeting wasn't about some sort of rebellion!

Noah the Airedale said...

Geez Scruffy you had us worried for a moment. We thought there really was going to be a wheelie and stuffy take over. Weve been watching our stuffy Terry for any signs of a take over and so far nothing. Guess it was a rumour afterall.

Hugs and tail wags

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

I bet there is a secret stuffie take over going on here! I was wondering how all of my stuffies got out of the basket and all over the house!

They must be planning an attack!

Hurry! Quick! We must think of something! We need a bigger pool!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

Hi there!

Scottie from Malaysia here! Nice to meet you! Wow...those stuffies are so cool! Mom loves stuffies for keeping too...=)


The Aphasia Decoder.... said...

It's July and hot. Water safety seems like a reasonable thing for the stuffies to be discussing. I vote that they aren't planning anything sinister like taking over the dog blog community. But then maybe it's just a good cover story, being around the pool like that. Hummmm.....

We have something sparkly on your blog to give you, come see.
