New Toys for The Pupsters

Juannie bought some new toys for Bess and Rocky. The Beano makes a noise that is supposed to be farting. It sends Rocky into fits of delight as he tosses it up in the air, picks it up, jumps onto the couch, runs in his crate with it and then brings it back to us covered in drool for a new throw that starts the process over again. The Crawfish - known as a lobster in other parts of the world - makes a noise that approximates water bubbling. Bessie likes to play fetch with it and shake it a lot to show the Crawfish who's boss.

Beano & Crawfish will probably not survive the love and devotion of Bess and Rocky for very long. So we will enjoy their company while we can.

New Toys! New Toys!

Your doggies are so cute. Lucy isn't much for play toys... but she is killer on towels. For some reason, drying her off out of the tub means growl and bite the towel and shake it around lol

Thanks! Bess hates towels, too. She gets downright feisty if we try to dry her off after walks on rainy days. Rocky is always cooperative about getting dried off.

Lor' but they're adorable - and so photogenic - even if they do look like they're up to nuthin' but trouble 24/7.

The Late Casserole, my parent's beloved Cocker Spaniel, had a squeaky toy. If you made it squeak, she got all upset and took it from you and placed it protectively under her paw. I think she thought we were hurting it - if she hadn't been fixed, she would have made a most excellent momma!

You can tell that they are mischievous from their photos? Darn! I thought I did a good job covering up the devil horns with their fur.

casserole- that's a cute name. Is there a story there?

Sorry to be so long winded, but I loved that dog...
Why, yes, yes there is! Her original name was Cassie* and she was my roommate's dog. I was the only one to pay attention to her, though, and I used to give her all sorts of treats - in fact, ANYTHING was a treat! She once tried to eat my chapstick and gnaw through a bottle of aspirin and she rooted through my school bag to successfully demolish a package of gum - I was inspired to nickname her Casserole because just like you can put anything in a casserole recipe, you could put anything in Casserole.

Except one thing, come to think of it - I was eating oysters and she was pestering me and I put one in her bowl and she sniffed it and looked at me like "who you trying to fool, this ain't food!" This from a dog who eats chapstick. Makes you wonder about oysters, doesn't it?

Wasn't she lovely? My dad still misses her a lot.

*my parents, who ended up adopting her (away from neglectful roommate), changed her name to Kate because my dad's first language is Italian and he couldn't easily pronounce "cassie"

I always like seeing pictures of Casserole!

I'm going on vacation to see my folks next week and I got a copy of that photo made today for my dad (when I was supposed to be buying pumpkin puree!) - I bought a lovely gold frame for it. My mom says he's now ready to look at pictures of her again. I think he should have it by his bed.

That's such a sweet and thoughtful gift.

She's very pretty and it's a great story.
Lucy pretty much eats anything too, unless we offer her squid. Then she gets that same quizical "What you talkin' about, Willis?" look. She doesn't walk off though, she hopes the next bite will be something different.

My husband and I are in love with your dogs. Just had to share that. We LOVE corgis.

Why thanks! Once you buy that new house you should consider getting one. Corgi puppies are irresistible.
