A Groundhog in the House...? Part of One???? EWWW!!

Yeppers...recognize this guy?? Punxsutawney Phil...that famous groundhog from just north of us here in da Burgh....yesterday was Groundhog Day...and old Phil DIDN'T see his shadow...predicting a short winter...actually, I'm thinkin' all it predicted was the fact his burrow was iced in and he couldn't get his fat butt out...
Here's Scruffy...out in the yardie...diggin' a hole and sniffin' and snortin'....

If you lived in that hole, would ya wanna see this face comin' at ya? Quite the hunter, our Scruffman.

Dog is totally demented...look at him...
So just a few minutes ago, Mumsie asked Daddy to call Scruffy in cuz he was taking too long from doin' leg lifts on the bush out in the frozen tundra. Scruffy ran in alright...with somethin' in his mouth. A large thing in his mouth. Mumsie took one look and screamed bloody murder and hid in the laundry room. Daddy traded the "object" for a large chunk of Challah has good taste. He traded.
The object in question was a um HEAD. A frozen head...of a mammal of sorts. Mumsie kept screaming.
Did Scruffy bite off the frozen head of Punxatawney Phil? Is there a frozen rodent runnin' around in our yardie without its cranium? Will the sedation work to stop Mumsie's screaming?
Tune in next time for THOSE NAUGHTY TERRIERS....

Scruffy is so brave. No doubt that evil rodent was headed for your estate with sanctuary in mind. Mumsie should be thanking him for protecting the perimeter.


P.S. Hope she save the head for you to enjoy with your kibbles.

Our Mom rarely lets us off the leash so we don't have the divine chance of dining on any rodents, frozen or otherwise. Good work Scruffman!!

Teka is in Awe of the Scruffman! The biggest thing she ever brought into the house was a part of a squirrel.

Deep bows in his direction.

Muzzer suggests you sneak some rum into the coke zero.


Penny and Patches said...

Oh, my doG! Scruffman was carrying a skull? A real live (I mean...dead) skull? We hope that sedative works for Mumsie! We would need some here, if one of us came in the house with a skull! You do look like you're having a blast in the snow!

Penny & Patches (Oh, yeah!..Go Steelers!)

pam said...

YIKES!!! If that was our Mommy she'd have to be sedated fer EVAH!

Rudy said...

Oh, my mom probably would have passed out. Silly Scruffy, leave those skulls out in the yard and reburry to redig ;) Looks like you're having tons of fun that's for sure!

Oh wow we are so jelly you hunted and found a head. Awesome stuff.

We are dying to know if the rest of the animal will find it's way into your house.

Poor Mumsie, we hope she is feeling better now.

Maggie and Mitch said...

ewwwwwwwwwwwwww - that's just disgusting, Scruffy! Mom told us to say that. We wish we could be off-leash to find a prize like the one you found!
We sure do pray that Phil is right and we really are gonna have an early spring!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Is Mumsy still screaming? Having PTSD nightmares? Maybe you should jump up on her bed in the middle of the night and make some squeaky sounds, just to be sure she's recovered.

Scruffy must have eaten the rest of the critter and brought in the head to verify his kill and get proper credit and praise. Our grandpa made one of his cats a "RATS KILLED" board and drew a little head for every kill, like the WWII pilots [which grandpa used to be] did on their airplanes to show their "kills" of enemy planes. Maybe your Mumsy could start a board for you?

Mazel tov!

Koobuss said...

Oh Mumsie,

We sure hope that Phil is right this time.

And Scruffy, you better wash your mouth out with some high power, potent mouth wash before you kiss me again. I'm not into the chopped-off noggin' scent at all.

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Cassie said...

Scruffy dear boy, we are in awe of your hunting abilities. To get such a wonderful trophy when the snow is way up past your bum is a real coup!! Good work.
Smooches from pooches,

ps-We hope your daddy got your mama peeled off of the ceiling by now!! Silly sissy!!!

Sally Ann and Andy said...

Yuck, what did he bring in? That sounds just horrible. I get to chase rats, but I never actually touch them with my mouth.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Ackkkk.... can't believe Scruffy decapitated whatever frozen creature that was (so what was it?!!).

P/S. Hope your Mumsie has stopped screaming... Hey, at least she only hid in the laundry room, we are guessing that our mom would've ran outta the house! :P
