A Message from Big Bruvver

Hi all, "big bruvver" here. I just wanted to write to you and thank you all for succeeding the amount of comments Mumsie has ever received on her last post regarding the new addition to the family. This time last week I had absolutely no idea there would be a THIRD terrier in the house, and now I couldn't be happier. He is SO much more than I expected. I've always wanted a big dog, and i've been born and raised to love terriers, so this was a perfe...err, pawfect opportunity. I knew he was the right one for me the other night when we were up late, Stanley was having a chew and relaxing on a chair watching Planet Earth and occasionally barking at the wolves on the screen!

We have decided to name him Stanley. Mostly because I wanted a name that would be fitting with a Sir in front of it, and he is absolutely the man...so, Stan the Man was way too fitting to pass up. Stanley has immediately stolen the hearts of not only the people in our family, but Scruffy and (in particular) Lacie as well! This was seen when Stanley and Lacie got into a fun game of "Under the Bed" last night, until he realized he couldn't fit his big head completely under! See exhibits A and B for more details:

Exhibit A:
Exhibit B:
(This was before my haircut when I was looking quite bear-ish!)

Imagine that trying to fit under a bed to grab a little lakie! The best he could do was extend his large tongue as far as possible and provide as many airekisses as possible. Lacie is still pretty much running the show, acting almost in what appears to be a managerial position. She sits perched above them during a night-time chew session and analyzes the situation at hand. If there is a problem, she makes an executive decision, snarles, and returns to her chair after setting everyone back in line. Stanley thinks she's slightly b*tchy!

I've had the pleasure of walking all three of them at once...it's quite a scene. I try to keep them in order by height as we walk; however, it usually ends up with me in some spiderweb of a mess with the potential of being mummified by leashes. When they do listen, and all walk together, I can't help but think of taking a picture and selling it to Sprint for their "Raising the Bar" commercials! :)

Anyways, thanks for all the great comments about him. He really is a great looking guy...apparently there is a certain miss sunshade who might be gettin' lucky with him. He will be coming back to Penn State with me...hopefully his cuteness can be beneficial to me as well! Kinda a "you scratch my back, I scratch yours" type situation ;). Here is a picture of me and what I like to call Terrier Madness:

He is HUGE! I can't even imagine what he's going to look like with another 20 pounds on him!

And one of Mumsie and the pack:

Stanley makes a great couch or pillow if you need him to be! It's one of his many great qualities (especially his ability to produce gas at an astounding rate when he gets tired...thanks Stanley).

I have been following the adventures of Scruffy and Lacie and get a real-time update constantly from Mumsie. After seeing Scruffy be publicly humiliated in a bikini, I am going to let it be known now that Stanley will not be abused like that!

...but then again, Mumsie manages to do sneaky things when i'm not around.

Keep your tails up,
Big Bruvver

Sooo.... will you be updating??? Will you will you????? He's so super handsome, even with his Aladdin outfit... I still can't believe he's only 7 months old.. those triceps.. um... well defined shoulders... (sorry, I have to stop now.. mum is GLARING at me...)

Sexy nibbles,

Hey Big Bruvver! We love the name Stanley. Great choice. Our Mom can relate to joys of walking 3 dogs all at once...good times (not really).

Oh and if you're taking Stan to PSU, he definitely needs his own blog.

dog face girls said...

Dear Stanley,

Mom says you are one handsome dude and she must creat a felted dale in your honor.



Bogart H. Devil said...

Coooooooooooooooooooooooooooool! You've got a full terrier house now - congratulations!


Joe Stains said...

its great to hear from you mr bruvver. I am telling you now that a good looking dog is a babe magnet. I am a good looking dog and I think about 39 trillion years ago when Mom first met dad she was a babe and now they are getting married!

We sure loved meeting Stan!

Koobuss said...

Hello Big Bruvver.

Koobie here. Things have been happening fast and I have been out of commission somewhat with a drowned laptop and uprooted trees, but anyway, I would like to welcome the new Stanley, if I haven't already done so, and wish you and the rest of your group all the luck in the world.

Young Stan is very handsome, and looks like quite a brute. I only fear for my dear little Scruffy. He is so outnumbered, with Lacie pushing him around and now a new "bruvver" who is so much bigger than he is. Surely poor Scruffy must be depressed.

Congratulations on the new addition to your family. He is be beautiful.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Stanley said...

Hey there, Big Bruvver!

From one Stan to the hooman of another Stan, all I can say is very cool name, man! There can never be enough Airedales or enough Stanleys in the world!

The wisedale outift need to be forgiven. It only reflects what we all know to be true of any Airedale. And, for a babe-o-licious babe magnet such as him, you better be clearing your social schedule.

Tell Stan I hope to meet him in the lfesh someday. He looks like he'd be a great wrasslin' partner!

So happy that he chose to adopt you BB (Big Bruvver).

Tell your mama my girl just got her message about calling on Wed. She'll cal sometime soon!

Goober love,

the many Bs said...

hey Big Bruvver, it's nice to hear from you. it sounds like you have a wonderful affection for your Stan the Man. he is a handsome fellow. we know you guys are gonna be sooooo happy together!

happy woofers.

Koobuss said...

Hey Scruffy,

I haven't heard from you in a long time. Did you find a new girlfriend?

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Stella said...
