April Fools


1972: The UK Veterinary Record publishes a study detailing the many diseases of Brunus edwardii, AKA the teddy bear. Said the article, “Pet ownership surveys have shown that 63.8 percent of households are inhabited by one or more of these animals, and there is a statistically significant relationship between their population and the number of children in a household. The public health implications are obvious.” 😉

Of course, Sam can’t have stuffies; first thing that goes is the button nose, then the eyes. He gleefully rips the heads off next and proceeds to shred the innards and eat whatever bits and bobs he can get his tongue wrapped around. My advice, destroy these hideous creatures before they ruin your life–not really. Actually this is an April Fool’s Day post. May any pranks played on you today give you ‘paws’ to smile about, both inside and out.  Gotta admit though, that Brunus is one pretty cool dude. 🙂

Big shout out to my baby sister Kathy on her birthday today. Happy birthday, sweets! See you soon in Torres! xxoo

Live, love, bark! ❤

    Oh we have to have conventional dog toys, nothing with buttons or anything that has the potential for choking. Lord knows I’ve puked enough dogs to last me a lifetime. 🙂 Happy belated birthday to your sister, hope you have fun when you see her!

    For Max it’s the blue toy hedgehog (“Hedgie”) who receives the wrath of the Maltese. He likes to pick one small spot and keep enlarging the hole until the stuffing is accessible and then we find masses of cotton-like filling, a deflated rodent, a very smug Furbeast and a trip to Petco for a $2.99 replacement, also to be named Hedgie.
