WOW!!! What a lot of work for a terrier to set up a blog!!!! My name is Scruffy...I came from Cleveland to live with my human mom and dad here in the "'Burg"...Pittsburgh, that is. I'm a Wire-Fox Terrier who has been known to get into trouble now and then. My mom brought Lacie home about a month ago. She's a calm, submissive 5 month old Lakeland Terrier from Philly...(HI AXEL!!!!!) whose main job it is to keep me out of trouble. (Actually, Lacie is submissive until you give her rawhide; then she turns into a wild animal.) Right now she looks really mean as her puppy fangs are still in, and her big girl fangs are half in. She has 4 fangs on top!! She says jump, and I say how high.
Lacie and I have been reading so many of your blogs for so long, that we feel we know you. It's like a big cyber dog park!! I don't always do so well at dog parks. Lately, no one has been following "SCRUFFY'S DOG PARK RULES:"

*Don't sniff me, but I can sniff you.
*Don't chase me, but I can chase you.
*I want the drink of water first.
*If I'm scared, and I hide under the picnic table, don't come under.
*If a ball is thrown, I get it first.

If any of the above rules are broken, I scream like a girl and sometimes get snarrly and bitey. Lacie has explained to me that this is not how I should be making friends, but sometimes I get SO scared. She never gets scared; her breeder in Philly also bred Danes. She loves big dogs. We went to the park last week. Mom apologized in advance for me screaming. A border collie came up to me....I screamed and honestly, I don't know what hit me. The next thing I knew, I was on my back looking at the clouds and trees. Lacie was laughing. It seems like some changes need to be made to Scruffy's Rules or I might be eating more dirt.
That's probably all I can type for now. A WFT has to get his naps in, ya know. We are so looking forward to meeting all of you! Furry hugs and slurrpy kisses.....Scruffy and Lacie

Hey guys! Don't despair on the dog park thingy - they won't let me back in. What do you expect to happen when you invite me to yappy-hour and I try to indulge in a "snack"?

Welcome to the blogosphere Scruffy and Lacie - thanks for the shout out on my blog! I thought for sure Lacie was an airedale terrier! She looks too red for a lakeland, she must be special!! It was funny seeing you Scruffy towering over Lacey when I still thought she was an Airedale, as Aire's are much bigger than us WFTs.
It's great to see you online, we will add your URL to our blog.
Stay in touch!! Scruffy, tell your Mom or Dad to join Fox Terrier Network ( - you'll get a montly newsletter (paper not e) and you'll meet great folks with WFTS!

I don't like Doggie parks to much, too many humans and doggies not following rules,

Hi Scruffy! (and Lacie of course!) I'm glad you found my blog. I'm new to all of this too! It's exciting to meet so many other WFTs from all over the states and the world!

I live close to Columbus, Ohio. My mommy says that's about 3 hours away from you guys? She's been to the "Burg" a couple of times she says and she said it's such a neat city! She loves all the winding highways and bridges near downtown. It looks really neat!

Well, back to work.. uh.. I mean play! I'm adding your page to my blog if that's okay!

Loved her to bits & treated her like a doll, including dressing her up...
