Pooooooooor Scruffy...Again!....and CONTEST!!

Lacie here...sheesch...the last time ya checked in I was trying to find ways to make Scruffy more attractive...see last postie....well, he ruined all my plans....

Sunday morning, he ran around the backyard having DYE UR REARS again...buckets of it.... was a lovely scene. Then the couple came over to "meet" Stanley and see if they want to get a Dale...oh, they do!! Stan was so the gentleman...a true representative of his breed. No, no, they're not getting HIM...they want a puppy....from his breeder!

The visit so could have been worse...Scruffy didn't um expel flatus ONCE. I was so sure he would....

But after dinner that night, he got really sick. Threw up like 10-15 times....Mumsie was very worried cuz he'd been sick that morning. Afraid he was going to DE HI DRATE...like a mushroom!

So she took him to the 'mergency vetties. (Not to be confoosed with Dr. Mary!) They gave him those SUB Q fluids and lotsa medicine.

And no, Scruffy didn't leave without a parting shot.

All over their Welcome Mat. (Readers with weak tummies might wanna skip this pic...I did add some purple coloring to make it not so disgusting....)

According to Mumsie, they're probably STILL sniffing Scruffy in that office. He was sick again in the middle of the night...whole house smelled like a barn. So Mumsie took him back to the long suffering Dr. Mary in the morning and she gave him some more fluids...he feels so much better.

He's on that boiled beef and rice diet. I asked Asta for some help gathering the rice....

That girlie is just so stylin'...look at her Wellies....

And only Asta could be so efficient to find Minute Rice in a paddy!

'Kay....here's the entertaining part...so Scruffy is a bit um "bound" up cuz of all that rice...so I'm having a contest...yes, yes, alert readers will remember he hoomiliated me in this fashion a while back...what goes around, comes around!
So submit your guesses....the contest runs till Friday at noon (even if he goes in the next minute or so...)...he better "go" by then...put your date and time in the comment box....
The closest reader will be sent a prize...and no, I'm not distasteful enuff to send you the "explosion"....
(Lacie, everything about this contest is in poor taste....Mumsie)
Get your entries in!!!
Lac E. Girl!!!
Pee ess...I did sorta miss Scruffy when he was at the vets....but don't ever tell him I said that!

Mumsie here...thank you all for you well wishes for Scruffy...he's usually so healthy...he's had a tough time of it lately!! AND please excuse us for being behind on our visiting...we'll get there, we promise!!!


The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

This is good news. We are so pleased Scruffy is feeling better and no longer has a dire rear.

Molly, Taffy and Monty

Ruby Bleu said...

So glad Scruffs is feeling better. Now on to the explosion...I'm assuming eastern time...so I say 11pm tonight...right before bed.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Gus said...

Scruff Man...don't worry about this contest thing. Just poop in Lacie's closet.


Inky and Molly said...

oh Lacie cakes, you're gettin' him back good and proper this time. The do on the welcome mat sure is not a good thing but we don't want the poor baba to be clogged up with rice either. We reckin a bit of olive oil in the next lot of munchies and he sure is to go by Wednesday 4pm.
Good lucky!

Mango said...

Oh a contest! Oh boy! I predict the Scruffman will let loose at exactly 4:45 AM on Thursday, June 24th. That is my final answer.


Maggie and Mitch said...

Poor Scruffie! We want your tummy to feel better!
We predict Wednesday morning at 5:50AM

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Tosca the Lakeland Terrier said...

Poor Scruff! I feel your pain. This has happened to me many a time, and based on my prior experience (I would have totally also done the welcome splat thing if my homie'd taken me to the vettie's mid-diarrhea-spell), I believe you will go on Wednesday June 23, 3:30am.

Cuz that's when I'd always wanna go!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

We are guessing tonight,June22nd at about 1030pm.

Okay, now that that's done, we want to let Scruffy know we are hoping this illness goes away soon. Baby got the dreaded D-word right after her birthday and it was so horrid. We were down in Phoenix at the condo and Mom had to sleep in the livingroom so she could run outside with her every 20minutes. Then she wouldn't eat. The vet said she was probably sick because of that ExPeNsIve birthday cakes fasatty icing!! Sheesh.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

OMD! What an embarrassment. Hootie should NOT have talked about that to the WHOLE dog world. I am mortified. Anywhooo, I do hope dear Scruffy is feeling better soon. Little Terriers can loose their fluids very quickly. Oh, and good work to Stan for representing our Aireness so favorably!!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We are happy he is feeling better. Let's see, how about Wed., June 23rd at 8:15 am.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

pam said...

We thinks June 22 about 3 a.m. (sorry mumsie)

Please feel better Scruffy.

Bobo and Meja

Wyatt said...

Poor scruffster...what is wrong with your tummy? Hope you feel better super soon!
Oh yeah......Wed. 23 11:02am


TwoSpecialWires said...

Please tell us that Mumsie did NOT take that photo of Scuffy squatting. How hoomiliating. And purple plastic poo? It's wrong.

We're relieved to hear Scruff's feeling a bit better, even if bound up by all that rice. (We're guessing the next 'splosion will be a minor one on Wednesday morning ... about 7:00 AM ... but we're hoping and HOPING we're wrong.)

Our recommendations: keep paper towels and room freshener handy, and squeeze those glutes.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I SOOOOO smelled it here...

BUTt I digress...

I say 8:26pm Wednesday 6/23/10


Bouncing Bertie said...

Oh, Lacie, I am beginning to think that you were not destined to work in the caring professions. So glad you explained about the purple splodge though....
Toodle pip!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Angus said...

Poor, poor Scruff. All will resolve itself an hour after you fall into a deep, deep sleep - let's say 1.30 am.

Noah the Airedale said...

Scruffy, are you sure you're better. Crikey we hope so. That purple poop sure is pretty. Far better looking than regular brown.

Noah x
ps those people who have chosen a dale have good taste hehe

Penny and Patches said...

Let's see...we think this evening (Wed. June 23rd) at 6:45 p.m.

Stanley, great job on representing us Aire-kids! Your cuteness alone would make peeps want to get an Airedale!

Penny & Patches

George the Lad said...

I'm glad he's on the mend, its not nice having a dickie tummy, you did have me worried I thought it was coming out pink!
My guess is Thurday 24th 6.33 am
See Yea George xxx

Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie said...

Hey Lacie,
We're so relieved that Scruffy is doing a little bit better. We know how sick he was feeling. Has he xploded yet?? Our guess is June 23 at 6:30PM. Katie lost another toofer yesterday, yep, both top 2 front teeth missing, hehehehe!
Mama is mad, those darn bambi went swimming in the pond and ate a ton of waterlily leaves. They better stay away from her now if they know what's good for them.
Wirey Hugs, Purrz & Licks,

Southbaygirl said...

Poor Scruffy!!! Going DI AR REA is horrible!!! I hate it when it happens to me.....



Petey said...

Now mind you, I'll eat cat poop right outta the litter box. But when I once had an upset tummy, Mom made rice for me and I refused to eat it! What does that tell you about her cooking abilities?

Did the special fur conditioner I found for Lacie arrive yet? hehehee

Your pal,


P.S. And not that you've ASKED, but yes, my attack wounds are healing nicely.

Petey said...

Thursday (S.H.I.T. - So Happy It's Thursday!)

5:10 p.m.

Indoors. (Extra credit)

Sunshade said...

Ok, so those nice hooman who decided to get an Airedale puppy after meeting Stanny tells me that he's nothing like STINKY. when hoomans meet STINKY, I think they make a note of the one breed to NEVER get!

How's Scruffman doing?? He can come here Lacie and you take STINKY, I'll do the swap.

June 24, 7:21 am is my guess!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

the 4 Bs said...

well, we'll submit a guess - how about Baxter's birthday - june 25 at 8 a.m. sharp!

we know that's a pretty long time, but what the heck! it's Baxter's birthday!


Eric said...

Scruffers. Phew. Thank dog you're better. And I'm wagging you found a good use for the cork from the wine bottle I gave you. When you'll expel it is anybloggies guess...but mine is June 23rd
7.33 am.

Wiry love Eric xx

Joe Stains said...

Well we sure hope he has gone by now!! LOL. We are way behind also, but that is ok, the blogging is supposed to be for fun right!

Oskar said...

I would guess that tomorrow around noon something would have to give!

I hope it makes Stan feel better.

Oskar said...

Oh & we were really alarmed at first when we thought Stan's poo was purple! We thought he was scary sick, bol.

Hollie and Janie said...

All that poo is unfortunate!! I really hope his tummy feels better soon!!!!
Love, Janie

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We heard Scruffy is under the weather so we came by to wish him a speedy recovery.

Bogart said...

Sending you all love and bowel-y happiness!!!!
