Becuz I Fetch...by Scruffy!

Scruffman here...So I've been thinkin'...ya see, I read this post on Lenny's blog...he was wantin' to know if other WFT's or any other doggie fetched? Well...I read the comments on his postie...and....Scruffy blushes furiously...I FETCH...

And I might be the only Wiry Foxy who does...endlessly...wonder why? Axel sez that terriers are above it...another dog sez we're only supposed to drive the foxes out...not bring 'em back, for Pete's sake....I dunno. (Petey fetches..that's for sure!!) It seemed, on Lenny's blog that most of the other male two-leggeds were all ABOUT THE FETCH.

Oh, trust me...it has its advantages. Ya see, I have some well "habits" that Mumsie isn't too fond of...the poop consumption for one...my endless number of full weak bladders is two, my breath three, although that may be related to point one...and then there is the fact I really have no problem usin' my large choppers on her hands if she's irritating me...you know...by cuttin' my stoopid nails, cleanin' the poop off my teeth, wipin' my paws etc etc....um etc etc etc actually.

But...Daddy loves me. So does Bruvver. (Mumsie does too...but it's different...) CAUSE I FETCH. I fetch like it's my job. It is.....Look.....

I just heard Daddy ask me where the frisbee is....see my ears and alert expression????? That "keen" expression the stoopid show judges talk 'bout with terriers???? This is it!

The Black and Tan Club gets into viewin' position to watch me play frisbee....


Oops...looks like Stan whispered somethin' unflatterin' to Lacie...not such a flatterin' pic of her, huh? BUTT anyway....




OH MAN!!





Hurry, Daddy...THROW IT!!!




Quick game of tuggie?????? Nice toofers there on the Scruffman, huh?





Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!






Trackin'...trackin.......










SNAP!!!!!







Get a better grip....



Zoom down the hill!!!!!!





Somedays stoopid Lacie chases me bitin' my butt as I track the frisbee...then she either bites my shoulder fur the whole way back with it or she grabs the other half of the frisbee and "helps" me carry it back. It's infuriating....





Oh man...I need a drink...and a rest..ok...done...can we play again??????
So...bottom line here...some of my less desirable behaviors are ignored...
Because I fetch...it's a guy thing!!!....

hey Scruffster! we admire any dog who fetches! you see, we are all fetching dogs and we know how important it is. and although we have 3 frisbees, we have not yet mastered frisbee fetching. you are way ahead of us on that one. oh and Tom, now he is a frisbee professional. we admire that dog a bunch! but back to you, you are an exceptional terrier. it's a good thing. 2 leggeds like to play fetch with dogs, it makes them feel like they are important to your life. it's more meaningful to them than feeding you. whatever. we prefer tennis ball fetch, but we know that all fetching is good fetching. oh yeah, mom told us that retrieving is a good thing too. whatever.

woofs.

Petey said...

REAL DOGS FETCH!

However, you couldn't get me to go after a frisbee unless there was a bacon cheeseburger on it with a side of kitty logs.

Tennis balls, Scruffman, tennis balls. That's where all the action is.

Your pal and fellow fetching-terrier,

Petey

Gus said...

Wellllll, it looks like fun. But I think I will keep the status all nice and quo. OK.

Dewey Dewster said...

Hey Scruff....

Who said wires aren't supposed ta fetch???? What a fallacy that is....while we haven't gotten inta frisbees, we fetch the ball like crazy...all 3 of us and we can get inta some pretty good fights when one of us (and I won't name names) can't get ta bring the ball back cause someone is hoggin' it up.....there always has ta be a hog in the pack, doesn't there????

Don't change a thing except fer the poop eaten....now that's disguistin' and no decent wire would be caught dead eaten somethin' that crawled outta someone's butt.....although I must admit both me 'n Toby did it when we were kids.....but we're sooooo grown up now and past that children stage.....

But Scruffman, doesn't that involve actual running? Not for me, no way.

Slobbers,

P.S. Nice butt shot, beastie.

Eric said...

Dang Scruffy, you can fetch! You are one great fetching terrier!! I love to fetch too, so there are a few of us terriers that fetch. Keep up the great work with the frisbee!!!

Your pal,

Life with Ozzy said...

Scruffy,
Glad I'm not the only one who plays tuggie with the frisbee. It was the coolest game to ever play with Dad. Though mom taught him how to spin me around cause it was funny. The dizzyness that came afterwards was not so funny if you were to ask me. But apparently they weren't.
Have fun with the frisbee hopefully you can find a way to keep Lacie occupied so you can play alone sometime.
Oh wait mom said sharing is good ha! lot she knows!

Joe Stains said...

Whatever makes you happy, ya know? You DO have to live with Lacie, it must be nice to have stress free fun like that without her being involved.

tnbullterrors said...

Hey Scruffman, who said Terrors don't fetch? Some-bully forgot to tell Darla Jean that, she will fetch all day. The rest of of TN Terrors play a different game, DawgDaddy or DawgMom throws, we go get it and then RUN!! They can't have it back, it's more fun that way!

Feather, Darla & Pappy, the TN Bull Terrors

Joey said...

Hi Scruffy! I love to fetch! I can catch tennis balls in the air and bring 'em back to my dad all day! Zeke, on the other hand, will catch a ball but then he just sits down and chews on it. Oh well - I'm with you - fetching is fun!

See ya!
Joey

Lorenza said...

Hi, Scruffy!
I admire your fetching skills!

Koobuss said...

Hi Scruffy,

I am all wire fox terrier, as you well know, and I do NOT fetch. I feel that if you throw something and you want it back, then YOU go get it, not me. My mom used to do this a lot. She would throw a ball, I would run after it, and then I'd just stand there next to it. She would tell me to bring in back, but I wouldn't. Why should I? Just so she could throw it again and then I have to chase it again? How smart is that? If she wants the ball back after she throws it, then let her come and get it. I will stand next to it though to show here where to look. I'm being thoughtful that way.

Love and Koobuss Kisses for Everybody,
Koobie

Maggie and Mitch said...

You are so smart to return to the hoomans with your frisbee, Scruffy! Mom says that's the way it's SUPPOSED to be done! Great job!

Trade that frisbee in for a tennis ball and I just might fall in love with you.

Martha Basset said...

Hi Scruffy
We thought you looked awesome when you were running, catching and fetching your frisbee!
We dont fetch ourselves but are always impressed by those that do.
We reckon the two leggers shouldnt throw things away that they want back!
As for your other infuriating habits well again it just depends on your perspective. We dont eat poops although mum's last basset would do anything for a mouthful of fresh horse manure!! No we like to roll in it - again horse manure is good as there is so much of it. The full body coverage is always the aim - then they dont want to let you back in the car!!!
Thats as bad as your mum wanting to clean the poops off your teeth.
Well done with actions hots Scruffy - we think you rock.
love
Martha & Bailey xx

TwoSpecialWires said...

Fetch? Is that what you call it? Is it fetch when I toss my blue fuzzy thing with the long pointy nose and it goes flying high in the air and way across the room and then I have to go find it and do it again? Or is it fetch only if somebody else throws it? It's fun, I know that. Maybe I shouldn't call it "fetch", though. Seems that has a negative connotation for a wire. (What I REALLY wish is that I had a big space to run and catch that frisbee like you do.... it looks like you were having great fun!)

Jake

TwoSpecialWires said...

I don't have a clue about this thing you call fetching. Or even playing. But eating little and not so little brown stuff? I just don't understand.... Mom wants me to explore and play, but every time I find rabbit, deer, elk or especially GOOSE poo on our walks, she tugs on my leash and pulls me away. Now that I read about fetch, I'm thinking she'd rather I do that, instead. I'll try. You are a good role model. And it DOES look like fun.

Peanut said...

Oh my goodness. I can't believe it. Flash does that annoying biting or trying to help me carry stuff back also. It's annoying isn't it? Maybe Lacie and him should become best buddies and go shopping together. hahahaha

Agatha and Archie said...

OK we are back in action.... Are you kidding me?? Arch LOVES to bring a tennis ball back.As for me? I will go get it and then take it somewhere else.... I guess fetching is a guy thing.. We are going to readd all of you back posts becaseu we are SOOO behind in al the gossip..Love and kisses A+A

with love, Madison said...

Excellent! Man-dad loves the fact that Madison FETCHES too (it is a guy thing, we agree!) And there is NOTHING close to "retriever" in the breed description of Giant Schnauzer. Nothing. Zero. Zip. So we think she does this just to manipulate Man-dad.

MJ's doghouse said...

well SCruffy...that is so impressive...i am very impressed...cuz i am half lab...and we are supposed to retreive things...but guess what...i will not retrieve anything...nada...nope..get it yourself...

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Excellent fetch Scruffy! I too love to fetch. I can catch mid air and my mommy claps when I do it she is so pleased! The pooh eatting is so uncool though. Hootie was really into that while in Idaho. He thought he was some kinda con-O-suer. Elk pooh, moose pooh, turkey and deer pooh. You name it. He ate it. Since we've been in AZ for 3 months now there's nothing for him, but he does smell it at the dog park & mom screams like a banshee,"WRONG HOOTIE,WRONG!". ha ha. It's a real attention getter. Anywho. Gotta go.
AireKisses to my fellow fetcher,

I love to fetch. My sister, Daphne, just likes to play interfere with my fetching! SILLY SISTERS!

Stanley said...

Don't worry ScruffMan! My name is Stanley... and... I am a fetcher... There. I said it. Actually, I'm quite proud of the fact that I can engage the likes of the least athletic hoomans to play with me BECAUSE I fetch. Funny how much they like the game.

You, my friend, are an amazing frisbee dog! I can't track a frisbee to save my goober life. (Speaking of goobers, tell your daddy we like his ensemble. At least he doesn't wear dark colored socks with his shorts.)

Goober love,
Stanley
