A Stranger in our midst...

Hi all, First of all we would like to apologise for not posting as often as WE would like, you know who to blame...our PA, don't worry we've had words with her!

As you know it was her birthday last week, we couldn't believe it when she said she was getting a DOG! Turns out his name is Dougal and all he does all day is sit there and keep the door open. Still, he's cheap to keep and she says the best behaved dog she's ever had. Cheek - has he got the character of a Schnauzer though - eh??

He hasn't said much yet...

...and didn't even want a treat after flashy box!!
Well, we'll probably let him stay, he's been no trouble so far anyway.

Finally Louis went to the V-E-T on Monday for his annual booster. There's been no living with him since. Evidently he was nice to the six dogs in the waiting room, sat perfectly for the I-N-J-E-C-T-I-O-N, and the vet said she LOVED him and that he was fabulous, he even got treats!

As things stand I may trade him in for Dougal although he's bound to be naughty soon and fall off his pedestal, or I may have to push him - bwah ha ha, :-) Have a great rest of the week all, Love Dex and Lou xxx

Good to see you and welcome to Dougal - he is seeming a bit on the shy side:) Tell him that he can send his share of the treats to us - BOL.

Good job, Louis, at the V-E-T. Always worth it when there are treats involved.

Don't worry Dex, Louis is only the favorite for a day. Give him time and he will show his true side.

I like Dougal. He seems quiet enough to keep around. I bet he doesn't even leave stuff behind for the pooper scooper.

See ya soon

Great to see you! I like your new friend....seems like the quiet type....Glad all went well at the vet!

Hi Dex and Lou, gee I like your new friends floppy ears, but I've never seen a doggie with square coloured fur. Funny little fella isn't he. Mum loves your last photo. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Sagira said...

Nice to meet you Dougal! :)

Monaco said...

That dog looks funny and so quiet, seems good company! ;-)

We're glad to see that Dougal will be no threat to you when it's time for treats! He is pretty cute!

Love ya lots

Hi my Dex, Hi Lou,

I like that nice little quiet doggie, we wouldn't think about gettin' into a schnauzer barking competition! I can't believe Louis had six dogs in the waiting room and he didn't go "off his lid" at them. I bark e-c-h-o-e-s real loud in that waiting'd love it Dex!

Did you notice that I had my winter furs cut off???? You like??? I did a post about it.

Tell your mum even though I'm a girl I LOVE my treats..... and can do a very credible but cute piggy impersonation! Mum says it's because I was born into a litter of 10 and had to "muscle in" for food!

Anywho - gotta go - barking to do at peeps and dogs in the street, love to see you soon,

Tail Wuggles, Rubie Lou. xxx

That's very brave of him to behave when he got his shots!!

Finn said...

That's a cute new doggie there, but I bet your peeps won't take him for walks or rub his belly!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Now think about it fur 87 minutes. Does the PA give Dougal Treats? Does she scratch his itchy places?
AND think of this... you two can now do all sorts of FUN stuffs around the house... Drag Dougal there and... blame it ALL on him. BaaaaWAAAAAAHHHHHH.

Hi Y'all,

Suppose she had gotten a cat instead of Dougal? Better be nice to him.

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

Mack said...

My mom says that is the best kind of dog. The nerve!!!

Dougal's a handsome lil dude :) Glad you behaved well at the Vet Louis. Don't worry Dexter, he'll topple off the pedestal soon enough. Some days it's far too fun to be bad ;)

Waggin at ya,

Scooter said...

Wow, Dougal may be cute and quiet and all that, but I think he's got one major problem. He'll be BORING! Don't worry, you'll never be replaced. :)
Grr and Woof,

Great picture of you two and that quiet little Dougal. Schnauzers may be noisy but that shows character - I mean not even wanting treats well that's very strange. Well done Louis at the vets :-) love from Magic xx

Lincoln said...

Oh I love your new friend ! He's very cute. But not as handsome as you both are I must say :)

Well done to Louis for being good at the vet !



Juno said...

Thank you for your barkday wishes!! Have a great day/night!

I think that the bestest thing about Dougal is that it doesn't eat! Yea, no sharin of treats either!

As far as Louis' behavior goes, of course he is a gentledog! I would have expected nothing less of my darling Beau! Ah, such a gentlepup to be around, I am not suprised that he received so many treats! Make sure to watch out now Louis seems that your brother has it out for you.

woos and HUGS XXC to my Beau, Tessa
