HMM: so this is Thanksgiving??

Good Day, Chaps....Seymour here, Jackson's wheeled Stuffie....I'm still in the "Burg"....though this place gets odder and odder.

Lacie and Scruffy "invited" me to go to camp with them last weekend, while Mumsie et al went to Charlotte, NC to visit Big Sister, Cat Woman.

This teeny tiny pic is "camp." Ahh....NOOOOOOOO. So I drove 463 miles with Mumsie and Daddy acting as the GPS system. Upon arrival, we decided to take Big Bruvver, Sister and their accompanying significant others to the drive through zoo north of Charlotte. Judging from the looks of some of the animals, there's a lot of hanky panky between species goin' on after midnight.


That is complete unmitigated hogwash.

Check out this dude....sorta looked like the toll takers on the turnpike!

This is a rather stately creature...think of the scarves Lacie would dress him in. He had this irritating habit of tossing his head back when he swallowed his crunchies, effectively dumping them all over your lap. Well, I don't exactly have a lap, but you can catch my drift.

Now here's a handsome fellow. Daddy put Mumsie's window down in the LOCKED position. This sounds like grounds for divorce to me.

Yeppers, he's movin' right in on Mumsie!

You have to click on this pic to get the actual slobber experience....see the drool hanging on his face? He shoved his head on Mumsie's lap where she had her feed bucket jammed between her knees. He drooled and spit food all over her and the car. He decided it would be a LOT more fun to do all over her face and hands and coat. His tongue is almost as big as Lacie. Being a safety minded person, she had her seatbelt on and couldn't escape....or put up the window. So she just screamed. The others in the car were incontinent of urine. Like they peed their pants. It takes a lot to get old Seymour to howl with laughter, but this was it. I had tears running down my stuffed face.

This is where we had my first Thanksgiving dinner....I'm from England, remember. We didn't do that Indian/settler thing in our history. The above pretty lass is Bailee....Big Burver's girlfriend's cockapoo. She's still a pup...and an anatomical anomaly...she has no bones in her body...she bends....very flexible doggie. And, I may add, an excellent face washer after partaking in the repast spread on the table. Turkey, potatoes, vegetables, salad, 2 kinds of was breathtaking. My wheels were creaking after eatin' all of that. Mumsie had two glasses of wine and felt horrible the whole next day. A true lightweight, that one is....

Here's Bailee smilin' at how much Scruffy and Lacie missed at camp. We brought lotsa leftovers back for them, but Big Bruvver ate em' in the car. Oopsie..........
Upon arrival home, we were truly dismayed to here of Jaffa's horrific experience with the bad Advil. We dogs and hoomans have been thinking of him everyday and sending our thoughts and prayers for his recovery.
Hope you all had a fab holiday.....and I hope Mumsie can fix her printer to print out the addresses for the holiday card exchange. I just really hope I don't have to dress up.....
Yours, Seymour

Hey Seymour, hope you're behaving yourself. I'm not sending you any more pocket money as I don't want to encourage any more gambling or womanising!

Those zoo photos are pawsome. Loved the slobbery beastie! I think J1 would have fainted if he had put his head anywhere near her! J x

Stanley said...

Sounds to me like you made the right choice, Seymour. I would have given big money to see video of Mumsie with the juicy snouted bison.

When did you spring Scruffy & Lacie from camp? I bet they had a lot to say to you after you ditched them there.

Hope you're still alright, man!

Goober love,

Lenny said...

Totally impressive slobber. Thanks for the pictures, Seymour!!

Your (and Scruffy's and Lacie's) friend, Lenny

Cripes Seymour, we're all rolling around in fits of laughter here. Poor mumsie sounds like she had a time of it with that rather large beastie's slobber.
Scruffy and Lacie sure missed out on some fun.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

Hi Scruffy and Lacie cuties,

I just wanted to drop by and say a BIG THANK YOU for all the support you've been giving me and the Aire-kids especially Jaffa.

I am feel very fortunately, and grateful to be surrounded by a such caring group of people/dogs/terriers.

Thank you.

Hi Seymour!

Wow, that Bison sure has a big wet nose. Luckily he was nice to the car. I've seen many Bisons charging towards cars with their horns, oooh!

Love licks,

Ferndoggle said...

That totally sounds like something our Dad would do...and then Mom would wipe the slobber all over his shirt. We're glad you enjoyed your first ever American Thanksgiving.

Pee Ess...our Grampa is at Canonsburg. They're taking real good care of him but he's in bad shape. Thanks for the thoughts & prayers!

Gus said...

So glad you had a chance to do thanksgiving. "camp" wouldn't have been as much fun, and the food would've been BORING>

And a good time was had by all, well, 'cept Scurffy and Lacie.


da boys

Zorra said...

Heee heee love the pic of the berfalo..... ha ha ha... Katie is scared of them. One time she saw one when she went wif mommie to O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A where the wind comes sweeping down the plains, and she went NUTS. She never saw anything that big!

Sounds like you are having a great time, S. did you get Scruf and Lacie out of camp?

Joe Stains said...

sounds like a great first thanksgiving, and way better than that prison camp!

Patience-please said...

woo-weee that was a great big hairy beastie. We think we might like to bark at him and maybe chase him... from a distance. Maybe.

You gave us an excellent description of your trip to NC. I especially liked the part about Munsie and all the slobber. It just doesn't get any better than that. Munsie was so lucky. I would have loved to have been there.

Too bad bruvver ate all the leftovers on the way home. Scruffy and Lacie missed such a good time.

Thanks for writing Seymour.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Koobuss said...

It's me, Koobie, again.

Please tell my dear Scruffy and my little friend Lacie that I saw the picture of their "camp". That doesn't look like camp to me. Around our house we call them "dog hotels". I haven't been to one yet but I've had relatives that have stayed there. I hear they have lots of activities.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
