BUT...as you can see Scruffy, Lacie and Babystan's predecessor "Sarge" had the scary eye thing down pat. Not to mention the scary teeth thing! By the way, I have the header photo on my locker at work...the OR nurses said they wanted to blow it up and have a copy in each operating room....that Sarge looked like too many of the surgeons.....
To get Sarge to "pose" for one of these horrifying shots was simple. Big Bruvver discovered as a small child, if you played "beard tweakies" and the game was to remove ur fingers before Sarge removed them; that he would obligingly show his pretty toofers.....(Sarge occasionally "won" requiring bandaids and kissies for the victim...)
Obviously, I have always had RWD....really weird dogs!
This pic needn't be considered for the contest as he's not a current blogger...but I thought you might enjoy the, er, view.
BTW, he was actually a really nice dog...and NO, I do NOT tease my current flock.

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...
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???
I couldn't stay mad at the boyz for too long....here I am monitering who's winnin' the game....
Scruffy was...so 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!!!!

See what I mean? U G L Y!!!!!!!!!!!!! They were obviously made by some lowly life form.
While I was checkin' out the grass, these three "Extra TERRIERestrial Creatures came and checked me out. Yes, I got the memo about Burt. No, I didn't let them get too close for too long. I almost passed out from the stench emanating off of them. EWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!
If I had to guess, I would say these are the aliens responsible for the crop circles. Odd lookin' buggers, aren't they????
Lookie here...this odd headed alien is practially admittin' it. Check out his long danglin' tongue.....
I gotta admit, this is a pretty one....sassy lookin' Martian, huh???
Hmm....this closeup of this alien's nose is disgusting. It looked all slimy and drippy as it was rooting around in the grass for something to feed on.

Flyin' Ruby upside-down made it a challenge for Koob to figure out where we were. It was soooooooo cool to see those astronauts spacewalkin'. We tried to land in Lorenza's driveway. But, alas...we landed in Cancun. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!
Some dogs and kitties rented jet skis while others went sailin'!!! Thankfully a couple dogs put shirts on to prevent sunburned backs!!!!
What a motley crew here. By the second day, Ruby sobere...er was feelin' well enough to get Aire Ruby back in the sky to take everyone back home. We feel sorta bad about the sand castle contest we had in the aisles of the plane. We stopped at a car wash with those cool vacuum cleaners and got rid of most of the sand. (I think we found a couple of the mice we thought we left at Asta's too!!!) Thank Dogness, Mango held onto GirlGirl when we were vacuumin'. That coulda been REALLY UGLY!!!
Back to the reality of hangin' out in our family room watchin' Babystan tryin' to swallow Lacie's head.
WE HAD THE BEST TIME!!! Thanks to all who helped with the pawties and SPECIAL thanks to Koobie for takin' all these photos! She musta spent hours developin' all those rolls of film!!!
We're glad Asta got home safe and sound and we hope Ruby had the bestest 2nd Barkday ever!

Now this is quite a scene. A dinner pawty for Asta and Ruby. The food was amazing. GirlGirl ate so much, I though she was goin' to explode. This is an great shot of part of the group. No, we had to eat in "Sittings." Like on a ship. Well, there were a lot of us! Mona (being the tallest doggie here...NOT) helped out with the serving of the food. So did Miss Snickers, but she was makin' eyes at Gus and sorta tripped...not to worry. It all got put to good use!

Lacie took this pic of me the second we saw Ruby circling around our house. Man, I was SOOO excited I was yellin' my Dale head off!!!!! The flight was fab. Even tho the cost of aire fuel has skyrocketed (like the pun!!!), Ruby manages to still have excellent first class service!! We three had an amazing breakfast of omelets with ham, croissants, and fresh squeezed orange juice. DELISSH!!
Check out this photo of us all hangin' out by Asta's door that Koobie snapped....that girl takes the most amazing shots!!!!!
The cats had already set up about 30 of these throughout the apartment. That was a good thing as most of them had been drinkin' Lacie's new signature drink.....the PurrGrrRita....they were runnin' towards those boxes!
Now Asta's apartment did NOT have a balcony. It does now, thanks to Mango. He said runnin' up and down on that elevator was gonna make his ZEN get all funky. Well, maybe he didn't say it like that, but ya get the pic. So he built a balcony and has separate rooms for the Gents and Ladies. So far,they've been quite well used.

The really disturbing thing is they really have done a pretty bang up job, but I will NEVER tell them that! I've gone over all the details with them....though,it seems like all we have to drink is beer.
Ladies...please bring pawtini ingredients...and Noah's Sissies...bring the blender and what's left of that vodka from Noah's surgery. The last I saw of it, your mom was runnin' out the door with half the bottle. She learned quickly, Girls! She really giggles, a lot!
Oh, and the boyz did nuthin' bout table centerpieces or fresh flowers...they did seem to buy an unholy number of balloons, but nobody's talkin' bout that. Hmm.....
A Few Asta House Rules by Lacie (in no particular order....):
* Dogs, get along with the cats (and vice versa.) If you can't get along, remove yourself from the situation and go to another play station....we'll have board games, videos, bowling, a slip and slide, an indoor pool,an egg toss, mud play, paw painting, and too many other things to count.
*The cats will have a fishing contest...(no, the fish aren't alive...Butchy and Snickers wouldn't permit live fishing....) a mouse release game...all mice will be unharmed in this practice; (oh, and they will be numbered so we can find at least half of them when we leave)...lotsa real furniture scratchin' posts, a meatloaf contest...my idea!!!!...which cat most closely resembles a meatloaf wins a prize...and buckets of other things.
*No cat can mess with Girl Girl. Girl Girl may spend at least part of the pawty ridin' on Mango's back.
*Dogs will stay OUT of the kitty litter boxes. No exceptions made.
*There will be NO cooking of cats, Whippets. While your idea of Kitten CATchatorie is, um, clever, their idea of Whippetchini Alfredo is just asking for trouble.....keep the trash talk under your breath.
*Those wishing to play "How many animals can we stuff in Asta's elevator" may only do so if the elevator is less than half full of apartment residents.
*Dogs needing to go "OUT" are ask to NOT wait until the last minute as the elevator may be full with animals playin' the above HMACWSIAE game.
*All cats and dogs are asked to refrain from chasin' the Wheelies. It would just lead to Mayhem and Havoc. (The names of Mumsie's next dogs.)
*Any animals dog or kitties eating a raw food diet are asked to use a paper plate (if there are any left) if snackin' in Asta's parents bed. For that matter, all diners are asked to use a plate....there's nuthin' worse than sleepin' in a bed covered with crushed potato chips.
YAWN.....I'm goin' to bed. Ruby's gonna be here early, too!!! PLEASE keep your birthday pressies for Ruby hidden when you get on the plane. We have the cake...hopefully, Babystan won't drop it!
We'll be meetin' at the revolvin' door in Asta's apartment building. Spread the word!!!!! This is gonna be FAB!!!!!

Plenty of good and cold Iron City Beer!
