Tenacious Terrier Spirit!

Lacie here...so Sunday afternoon we dogs are resting and Mumsie's sitting at the puter readin' the comments on Snicker's blog and she's crying....And the doorbell rings. She hears little voices and figures it small children sellin' something...well, not Girl Scouts cuz it's not cookie time, but ya get the pic.

We have Baylee here too (Bruvver and Sus' doggie....)...no, she's not muddy like in this pic, but you see she has a bit of attitude on occasion.

Mumsie opts not to answer the door, cuz her eyes are all red and blotchy. But she goes upstairs to look out the window to make sure the small children aren't ringin' the doorbell to tell us our house is on fire or somethin'...

Suddenly, she hears SCREAMS. Of small children.... followed by running feet and um well US BARKING. OUTSIDE.

Stanley decided to OPEN THE FRONT DOOR. Not an easy thing cuz it opens inward...and he let all four of us out...hey, they ran and we chased. No...no small girls were nipped...we behaved. Well, sorta.

Mumsie flew down the stairs and lept over the gate at the bottom...so wish we had that on video. She ran outside in a state of shock and got us back inside. Then she HAD to buy two German chocolate Advent calendars...which we can't even SHARE cuz they're not carob.

Stanley went in the corner. Well, this is just a pic of what he'd look like in the corner. He's snarfing a glump of peanut butter on the floor...but the pic does look pathetic, doesn't it?

Actually, his worst punishment was havin' to sit by ME for this photo op...he looks miserable, doesn't he?

We thought about our behavior that day. We think we were demonstrating Tenacious Terrier Spirit. Somehow or another we think Miss Snickers saw this episode and well, giggled.

We SO miss her, but we know she's runnin' and chasin' and doin' all the things she couldn't when she was so sick!! And that makes us feel better.

Tenacious Barkies,


Pee ess...Mumsie has the double dead bolts on now...Stan can't repeat this episode. We hope.

Are you sure those pesky girl scouts weren't trying to break in and you were just defending your estate? How about that, huh?

Poor Stanny. He looks most contrite.

BTW - Momma likes the idea of going to Spenser Gifts to get some fake barf to work on PeeWee's desensitizing training. Maybe some poo for Scruffy while she's there.

MurphyDog said...

Maybe that'll teach those girl scouts to peddle their wares somewhere else!

doesn't your mama know you was just tryin to protect her? Sometimes zombies come over disquised as girl scouts.

you can never be too safe
good work

wags, wiggles & slobbers

Petey said...

I think Stanley was just being a good host, inviting those little girls inside. Little did he know that Lacie would decide she could wear their clothes and attack!

We need to install a Mumsiecam to catch all her moves in action!

Your pal,


Koobuss said...

Hi guys,

You were just doing your job as protectors of your domain. I know how little girls can be, so frightening and all. They just want to hug you to death. Actually, little girls are among my favorite things.

Anyway, you guys sure did good getting out like that. And Mumsie deserves some type of Olympic prize for the athletic prowess she displayed getting from the upstairs to the outside in just a few leaps and bounds.

Nice job, Mumsie!!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses for Everybody,

pee ess Hi Scruffy

Pearl said...

Maybe Stan was trying to sneak out to 'feed the homeless' with Asta?? And he looks so sad because you and Scruffy blew his cover?!

You three certainly do keep Mumsie on her toes!!!

I like what you said about Snickers getting a giggle out of you three... I can guarantee you she did!


Gus said...

Stanley does contrite better than any other dog we have seen.


TwoSpecialWires said...

That'll teach everybody. Mumsie. Girls. And Terriers

Always Be Prepared.

Somehow we think the terriers always ARE prepared.

Bummer that you can't share the chocolate.

Love you three
Jake and Fergi and all the rest

Butchy and Snickers said...

Oh my dawgness,
Mama cracked a smile. She looks like a sick raccoon in the face, but don't tell her I told you. We luv you.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby with Angel Snickers giggling her fuzzy butt off!

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Y'all were just defending your house. How did y'all know they were friendly? Mack is sometimes afraid of small kids. I'm not. I would lick everyone, and then I would try chase them and get them to chase me. I think y'all just wanted them to play with you. Have a fun day.

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

Well done Stan! Opening doors is a true talent. Molly often pops THROUGH our fence trots down the next door neighbours lawn and lets herself into their conservatory.

If you need tips on how to move bolts just pee mail Molly and she will be most happy to advise you.

It's like Fort Knox in our house these days.


Maggie and Mitch said...

Grat job opening up the door, BabyStan! We sure wish we could have seen mumsie jump the gate!
Mom was hysterical looking at the pictures of the girl scout and brownie uniforms! She still has her badge sash, ya know!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

The OP Pack said...

Awww, you made us smile and even giggle a little at your tenacious terrier spirit. But seriously, don't do that again, we don't want any of you to get lost or hurt.

Woos, the OP Pack

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Once again, nevFUR a dull moment in your part of Pawsylvania!

I bet your neighbours just wait to hear the shrieks and see Mumsie dashing!

I'm sure Miss Snikhkers laughed and chukhkled!


Hollie and Janie said...

I do the same thing! I always think the children are playing and want me to chase them when they scream and run! Stanley does look miserable with his ears tucked back! I think he was just being helpful... anwering the door for your mumsie!

Eric said...

Stanley - you opened the front door? Hmmm. smarter than I thought. Was your plan to ask the kiddiewinkles in? Or just shove Lacie out? I trust she can sqeeeeze her derriere through the door. Whatever. Good moves. I bet you were after the German chocolate. But never mind it's not as good as Cadbury's. You didn't miss much. And you've got all those little DOORS on the Advent calender to open up yet. No bolts there. Bet those kids will never get a terrier for themselves now. Wagging shame.

Wiry loves and kissies Eric xxxx

Joe Stains said...

Ok Stan SO needs to teach me how to open the door. This is a skill that could have endless advantages! Those kids sound like wusses to me, total whiners. Clearly they don't know how to have fun, which is what I am sure you all wanted to do.
