Corgis...bah humbug!

Y'all should know first of all that no corgis were harmed in
the production of this blog entry.

Last week my dad had a colleague come to town to deliver a
paper at a kind of summer colloquium. 

This is the first time we have met this colleague, but he seemed 
like a nice kind of guy.  Then we smelled his shoes and socks!

Turns out he has two corgis.
Their names are Ricky and Kirby.

And from the picture below, they are kind of OK.

See.   Don't they look harmless?
And even maybe a little cute?
Oh, maybe even a little too angelic for words.

Yeah.  We thought so too. 

Then Muzzer broke out the PetSmart bag.
And she had two toys for these guys.

One for each of them.

And as if that was not bad enough, 
the pictures below came in Dad's email 
with a thank you note for the toys.
 Look at this!

What self respecting dog would be this
quiet and good when confronted by a toy
that Bounces and Squeaks?

You can sure tell these guys are not Terriers!

I bet they tore into them as soon as the pictures were taken!

Teka and I did not wait for any stinking pictures.
We went right for the jugular.  Or in this case,
the squeaker!

And these toys took a beating and kept on squeaking!

Muzzer had to put them up for a day to let them
dry out.  Then those sneaky squeaky toys 
started squeaking again.

We would give them a thumbs up, if we 
had thumbs.  

Just sayin', these are pretty fine play things.

Gussie n Teka

oh, and we think Ricky and Kirby like them too.


The World According to Garth Riley said...

I'm very suspicious of any dog who can calmly pose next to something that squeaks! That means it's PREY! You must kill it! I know you know this but the corgis obviously don't. Maybe they need to be sent for re-education.

glad you enjoyed your new toys!

your pal,

Ricky and Kirby sure don't look like Seniors! Something is definitely wrong here. We both would have attacked those toys!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Never trust a corgi. Devious little devils who can make that sweet innocent face all the whilst plotting to overtake the universe.


Jake of Florida said...

Oh dear...our terrierness may be in question 'cause we have toys we love that still have their squeakers. And we've had them for many moons.

Is a DNA test in order?

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

I bet those Corgis were just puttin' on an act for your humans. And then when the camera got put away - WHAM! They ate the toys!

Yep...I bet that's what happened.

I'm gonna have to get mom to spend some green papers on some of those toys for me and Brudder Ranger!

Hey Gussie and Teka! Long time, no bark! Those Corgis are cute, but I ask you...what kind of a dog doesn't immediately go for the squeaker?
