Stumpy and Curly

Hi every Puppy!

My hooman brother Russ (he is REALLY clever!) helped us solve the problem of my broken Blob. Mummy has been using Google Chrome as her browser lately but Google Chrome doesn't work for Blogger for us :(

Anyway, Mummy and Daddy have been very busy: Daddy in his new garage - he painted the garage floor and put electrixity like lights and sockets in, so now he can see and use his tools in there.

And Mummy is very busy in the garden and the greenhouse, potting things, sowing things, pulling out weeds and stuff. We sometimes offer to help but she says there's no need ... and Finni is soo good at digging ...

Our good friend Bambam has mentioned that he finds it really difficult to tell us apart so in this post I will tell you a sure way to tell us apart Bambam.

You see this picture of Finni? Well, if you have a good look at his tail you'll notice that it is fairly short and quite straight -in fact short and stumpy. Finni has a docked tail.

And here am I (hunting! :D )

You can see that my tail is full length and pretty curly. (I hold on to the lead with it, hehe. Mummy says I'm a bit of a seahorse). Here I am again.

Lately I've been doing that a lot you know - hunting! At first I kept running into the Willows for ages to race after lovely deer smells. Then one day I MET A DEER ... and I didn't know what to do with it! Since then I have decided to go for smaller prey - RODENTS ... Yeah!!!!!!

I spend AGES on each walk with my head in big bushels of grass, sniffing, snorting and digging and biting sods of grass out of the way - always following the tunneling of my prey. Mummy sometimes has to put me on the lead to get me to come away with her. Sometimes she just waits and Finni too ...

... and sometimes Stumpy doesn't look where he's sitting, like the other day ... and he sat in some goose poo, hehehe!

and he had to have a bum wash before he could have his 'after walkie' bone

And when you can't see our tails to tell us apart ... I'm the cute one with the purple collar on :D (in the red basket!)

See you later!

That's an excellent way to tell you and Finni apart, Nelly - your tails! We like the way your tail forms a handle!
We can see the green smudge on Finni's butt! Poor, Finni!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Hurra, Du hast genauso ein Ringelschwänzchen wie ich! Aber wenn ich aufgeregt bin und mich ganz doll freue, dann ist es eine richtige gerade Peitsche.
Naja, das Jagdproblem habe ich neuerdings auch...Mama traut sich nicht mehr die Leine zu kappen. Weil ich erst mal sofort im Wald verschwinden muss. Ich komme schnell wieder, aber das versteht Mama nicht. Sie sagt, ich darf das nicht und übt mit mir an der Leine. Da mache ich alles brav was sie sagt. Nun warte ich auf den Tag, wo sie die Leine wieder abmacht...und da sause ich wieder los *lach*

Hi Curly,

I love your new nick name, it totally suits a pretty gurrrrl like you! Did you offer to clean the goosie poopie off Finni for him? It it quite yummy you know?

I heard you're an excellent hunter, I love to find little critters too, and I really really really like to make kitties really mad at me so I could go bonkers chasing them. Do you like kitties??

ps. I'm glad your blob is fixed!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

BamBam said...

So that was you in the little film. Digging holes and throwing dirt and Grass. I thought, it is Finni. Because usually that's men's work.

You are a beautiful girl. Especially in your red basket. And I thank you for making me sure not to fall in love with Finny.

I'll go to bed now and dream of you.

Ever yours

Hello Tiger. We're glad you're hunting again. Isn't it funny how some people can't tell Airesiblings apart when we are all sooooo different....
THANK YOU for sponsoring us!! We will walk extra hard to make it worth your dough! We'll tell you all about it after the weekend. Love, I&M

Bogart said...

Ha! Mama calls me Stumpy too, and one of the names for Portland is Stumptown, so I put the Stump in Stumptown!

Hellooooo Nelly dahlink! You sure do have a curly tail. My poor little tail is even stumpier than Finni's. Of course I'm used to it and I defy anyone to call ME Stumpy!@! I think it is shiek!

My tail is a lot longer than hers, but still it was docked. Here in the states it is more common to dock than not. Mommy says eau natural is kinder on dogs.

Sherry said...

Nelly, I think we girls are better hunters than the boys. I've also taken charge of house protection.
