The Good, The Bad & The Ugly...

Ok guys, here's the deal...

We'll start with the Bad. The negotiations went pretty well & we decided not to go on strike. Mom explained that she gets really busy this time of year at work because of some stupid thing called Taxes and that's why we haven't been able to post much....which is BAD. But she promised to post at least once a week AND make us more salmon cookies AND take us on long walks AND get us back to regular visiting VERY soon.

And we promised to keep guarding the house while she and Dad are at work AND snuggle with her in bed at night AND let her feed us meatables b/c that makes her feel good.

Speaking of it is!! Mack sent us a St. Patty's Day box! We got it a little late, but who cares! The dog on the card looks like Sophie after way too much caffeine! Guess who's gonna be all over that giant ball???

These should keep us busy for a while. And Look! They're good for our teefers too!

Toss one of those suckers over here.

Hmmm, they smell like chicken.

And taste like chicken too!

As you can imagine, Chubs devoured his in about 10 seconds.

It didn't take Lola long to finish hers either.

Then it was on to the toys! I think Lola is actually giving Mom a dirty look because she's hanging on to that ball....little brat.

Now she's happy...

Sherman tried to hoard the Shamrock Loofa...

But I stole it from him!

And then Lola stole it from me.

Thank you Mack! We love all of our stuff.

And now for the Ugly....

Right after Mom took these pictures, Sherman and Lola got into a HUGE fight. I, of course, had to jump in and try to protect my sister so pretty soon, we were all fighting. Mom was yelling at us and trying to get us to stop but things got really ugly. Someone (NOT ME!) ended up biting Mom in the hand, by accident of course and she was bleeding and really mad at us. Sherman & Lola have puncture wounds on their faces...I'm fine, naturally. But Mom didn't talk to us for a really long time & we're all kinda grounded.

I don't think we'll be threatening to go on strike again anytime soon.


Peanut said...

Oh my goodness on the fight. Mom broke me and Flash up with the vacuum one time. Picked it up and shoved the handle part between us. Maybe your mom should try that so she doesn't get bitten again.
We hope her hand doesn't hurt to bad. Glad you weren't hurt Penny.

Moco said...

Gads and double gads,
You never, never, NEVER bite the hand the gives you treats. Had there been some sort of cosmic shift to cause Sherman and Lola to act so oddly? A low profile for awhile is what I suggest. We hope your Mom's hand gets better soon.

The Army of Four said...

Oh, no! I hope your mom is OK!
Tail wags,

Mack said...

I'm so glad you liked your stuff!!

I hope everybody is okay now. You guys must have had a doosey for there to be puncture wounds!!

The Brat Pack said...

Wow, you guys really did it this time. We've broken Mom's bones but never made her BLEED. I bet she screamed a lot.

That's an pawsome box from Mack! Tucker killed our loofah dog so we need to get another one.


Ruby Bleu said...

Uh oh...I'm sure it couldn't have been my Diva girl Lola, could it?

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Sophie Brador said...

Oh man. That sounds awful. Of course, you were the most well behaved of the bunch, Penny. I have no doubt about that. Anything you did, you HAD to do. I know how it is. I never get into these things either, but sometimes, it's just my duty. I'm glad you're okay. I hope your mom is okay too.

My mom is big on throwing the brita full of water on me if I fight with another dog in the house. The water, not the actual container. In the backyard, she used to just spray us with the hose. That stopped things pretty quickly.

Oh, and Mack must have a hidden camera in the house. That's exactly what I look like when I'm strung out on caffeine!


P.S. Give your mom extra love to help her hand heal fast.

Lady Kaos said...

Those gifts look really cool! Moco is right, if you bite the hand that hands out treats, ther eare no treats until the wound is healed and you can't see the scar anymore. My cat brother spend most of his kitten years treatless.
Home everybody's wounds heal fast and everybody is nice to each other again.

Lacy said...

Sparky said...

Wow, those are some great presents! I just hope your mom is okay now! That sounds pretty scary.


wally said...

Oh no guys! I'm with Moco--don't bite the hand that feeds you.

I've never fought with my sissy but I can demolish a loofah dog in one minute flat.


One of the pack said...

Oh no. Not fighting! You guys need to be more careful. We like peace and harmony.

Kapp pack said...

Oh No! Fights are never good! Do I need to hop on the turnpike and come and give Lola get well kisses????

Kisses, Sky boy

Joe Stains said...

YIKES guys, biting is no good!! I hope things get better at your house all around! NO FIGHTING!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Penny!
What happened?? Sweet Diva Lola in a fight with Sherman?? I hope everything is ok and your mom's hand heals pretty soon!
Nice presents and yummy treats from Mack!
Kisses and hugs

Snowball said...

Lola, I think I should exchange home with Sherman. My daddy loves big(fat) dogs. I promise that I won't steal your toys or food. You can share mine and help me finish my food but not my salmon snacks. hee...


Peesss: I hope that your mum's hand is not hurting anymore.

CoCo said...

Great presents! Oh my goodness, you guys hurt your Mommy. I'm sure that you all are all sorry about that. It sucks to have puncture wounds in the face too. Me and my roommate Susie do not exactly like each other, but we tolerate each other because we have to live together. One time, my Mama was trying to break us apart from an ugly fight and Susie bit her in the calf through her jeans. She had a black and blue spot the size of a tennis ball for 3 weeks. Mama knows better than to break up fights without a hard object now.

I'm sorry to hear "the ugly."


Simba said...

fight, fight, fight, its always fun in your house.

Cassidy said...

Poor mum, my mummy would be really scared if anything like that happened. I hope her hand is OK and no gets infected.

Murphy Dogg said...

Brother/sister fights are normal in my house. Usually Mama keeps her hands out of it by sticking her foot between us or grabbing one of us by the scruff of the neck and yanking us outta there. But I guess you guys are kinda big for that.
At least you got to eat your treats and play with your toys BEFORE you got in trouble!

Ginger said...

Hi guys,

Wow, you guys know how to party, you had a bar brawl and everything! Hope your mom's hand is going to be ok!

Nubbin wags,

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Dear...don't the rents just go ballistic when there's a good fight. Mumsie has this REALLY IRRITATING habit of throwing whatever she's holding or what is in easy reach when one starts here. So far she's tossed 1. a bottle of floor cleaner 2. an entire counter full of plastic containers 3. (the worst) Babystan's Dale sized waterbowl FULL OF ICY COLD WATER...that stunk...not too much fun fighin' that day...4. those hideous penny cans...ya know the pop cans stuffed full of noisy coins?

One time she was tossin' the penny can on the floor and she hit daddy with it...ooopsie...aim is not her strong point.

Ya better go and do kissies an make up with ur mom or she'll never let u post!!!


That Lola is SUCH a diva!

Petra said...

Uh oh, you guys are in trouble. Maybe you should try to time your fighting better --- like not right after getting some awesome treats.

Be humble, say you're sorry, keep a low profile. This too will pass!

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Yikes!!! I am sorry you all got into a fight! We hope your mom's hand is ok!

moggy said...

Hope things have calmed down...we don't like to hear that there was blood involved so be good boys and girls!

Ike said...

I am so jealous about all your stuff!

Tadpole said...

Oh my gosh my BFF Lola Sprout Beyonce - I bit my sister tonight too!!! My girl is VERY angry at me too! No wonder we're Best Friends Forever and ever and ever and ever!!!

But we don't have any new toys over here... or meatables.

Chef said...

Oh you've been badass doggies. I hope peace has been restored at your place and that your mama's hand is healed. I once pulled my mama down a hill and she broke her rib. So I know how bad you feel, right? Go give her big kissies.

xox Chef


Hi Guys,
Take our mum's advice to her kids at school - "Use your words not your hands!"
Hope your mum's hand is ok and that you have all sorted things out. Nice lot of pressies you got.
Jazz and Dixie

Mango said...

Whoops. Sounds like you guys kind of went a little overboard there. Maybe there was some cracker dog in those new toys!

Don't be biting your Momma. She will have to do the dental matching to find out who did it and then, somebody is in for a heap of trouble.


Kathryn and Ari said...

Glad to hear the negotiations with mom went well. It sounds like maybe some intra-species negotiations are now in order, too? Good luck with that!

Stanley said...

Whoa! Bummer about the rumble, but I'm glad no one had to go get stitched up.

Hope everydog there and your mama are all okay. My girl tells me to "Simmer down now!" when I get out of control, but it rarely works. I agree with Moco about keeping a low profile ~ especially Lola & Sherman.

What started the rumble in the first place? (My girl made me ask, sorry.)

GIve some special healing goober smooches to your mama, and make sure you, Lola & Sherman all get some too.

Goober love,

Oh my my my my my...Never ever fight! I never thought Lola could fight. She looks like such a dainty bubbly diva girl who can't defend herself. Well, I'm so wrong. Your poor momma's hand...Today, my mommy got bitten by a Dachshund who she's boarding right now. The dog was fine with her & he even cuddled with her earlier on during the day but an hour later, my mommy went up to it to pat it, it jumped up & bit her finger. Mommy was really shocked becoz just an hour ago, he was the sweetest thing ever! Mommy's now ignoring the fella & we're too. His owner never corrects his behavior I guess...

I hope you guys are badly injured & so is your momma's hand.

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Pacco de Mongrel said...

that was awful...siblings should be fighting with each other..

i hope ur mum was not badly hurt...

4xBs said...

oh dear you kiddos. everything was going so well... it's not good to fight. did your mom tell you that? and it's very very not good to bite mom.

we think you need to be on your best behavior now for quite awhile - at least until tax season is over. you better be really nice to your mom, okay? and no more fighting.


Girasol said...

I hope your mom undertand the situation with you guys...stay cool and do-not-bother-mom.

wally said...

Ohmydog there's an epidemic! Have you seen your girl, Sherman? She has a hole in her head, too! Sigh. All I am saying is give peace and chicken backs a chance. I am an eater, not a fighter.



Oh actually bit your Mom. Surely she knows it was an accident. We would never bite the hand that feeds us. Don't feel to bad, me sure she still loves ya but don't count on any trats for a while.

I still love ya all....Mona

Cubby said...

Oh no - poor babies!

Great toys, though....

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Taxes sounds evil.
Yeah for the treats and toys. :)

BenTheRotti said...

aaaww sorry to hear you guys got in a fight.. with some injuries :(
I'm sure your Mom understands that the bite was an accident. Hope you are all recovered and getting along ok now..
The treats from Mack look good.. and Sherman.. mine would have lasted less than ten seconds so ignore the chubs comment!!

Mum said to say she has been missing her Sherman fix.. all is good now though she can gaze at you to her hearts content lol

love to you all

I am so relieved you are all ok after the fight - and hope your mum's hand is ok too must have been pretty scary for you all.


Penny & Poppy said...

We hope your mom's hand is okay! Our mom uses a paint paddle for a 5gallon bucket to break up fights. Of course, there haven't been any since Captain High Pockets went back to rescue. Our dad's hand is finally healing up after the bite he got from CHP.
