My Brother Scruffy, My Hero..!!!!!!!!!

Yes, you read the title correctly. Scruffy is my hero!!!

On Monday, Mumsie saw four deer in our yard. She gets mad when they roam out there, cuz they eat the bushes and use the grass as an outhouse. (Scruffy thinks of them as leaving "snacks" for him.) So Mumsie, ran outside with 2 of her soup pots bashing them together. The deer looked mildly annoyed and moved a little toward the back of our yard.

Mumsie was too lazy to chase them, but when she opened the sliding door, I slid out. I went after those big, bad deer. All 11 pounds of me, barking my little Lakie head off. (Some might call it yapping....)

Three of them ran away. But the fourth...he/she was a problem. It had no antlers, but it sure acted like it was a boy. He turned and faced me and had the temerity to continue eating, though I was all of 5 feet away. I charged at him, and he got MAD. He snorted at me and put his head down and pawed the grass with his right front hoof. Mumsie freaked out. She opened the door and yelled for Scruff.

That foxy wire didn't have to be asked twice. He flew across the yard in full hunting mode and charged the deer!!! The deer kept snorting and pawing and Scruffy flew in his face snapping and the deer backed up, then turned tail and RAN!!!!!

Mumsie stood there holding her soup pots with her mouth hanging open. She was so proud of Scruffy!!!!! He kept running the property line just waiting for Mean Deer to come back. I ran the property line too, just in case. (Mumsie; Actually, she pranced...huge leaps in the air on springy Lakie legs.....)

Here's what the deer looked like.

Here's our yard....Scruffy had to run all the way to the back to rescue me!!!!! I thought he had wings! See the fence up....that's deer fencing to keep the deer from eating ALL of the bushes!

Here's Scruff and me on patrol. He could have been kicked and hurt badly, saving me. I LOVE MY BROTHER!!!!!!!!!

Well done Scruffy for saving the day! The scariest thing we have in our garden is a hedgehog, and I think even Cassidy would be safe with that!

Oh my, Scruffy sure was a HERO!!! That deer could be dangerous. She might use her hoof to kick & stomp on scruffy but luckily she did not, phew! What a brave brave young man he is...Such a good brudder you have Lacie. Your mom must be sooo proud of him!

Love licks,

What an exiting story! I'm glad you didnt't get hurt. The deeres here in Germany are so shy - the run away as soon as they see or smell a dog or hear a human coming. I cant't believe the deeres in your country are kicking! That's so amazing! Thank god you didn't get hurt!

Woofies, Alex

Stanley said...


You are AMAZING, man!! Beers on me next time I see you. I bet you didn't even think about it. You just charged at that big bully deer & was ready to take him out! Lucky for Lacie you were home & that your Mumsie thought to call you to come out!

Get ready for the pupgirls to come crawling out of the woodwork now. (Wonder how long Lacie's admiration will last ~ I hope it's permanent). I can just see her prancing around the yard. (Is she really only 11 lbs?)

Goober love & admiration,

Stella said...

Hey, Mr. Scruffman!!!

Goob thanks for saving my fren, Miss Lacie! I will give you tiny goobette kissies next time I see you, and I promise I won't bite your booty hairs. (That's how thankful I am).

Give my Lacie Girl a big goob hug from me.

Oh Scruffy and Lacie too, you are brave little hairy dogs, and we are proud to call you our new hairy friends!

Before we moved here, the Elders got to chase giant deerabbits all the time and there is NOTHING better!

Ferndoggle said...

That sounds like a fake story! Are you sure you're not making it up???

(who is just a bit jealous because he most likely wouldn't have been so brave!)

Ruby Bleu said...
