A Groundhog Story

Okays so dis wasn't what I was gonna post bout today but I just hads to tells ya'll what happened.
And I not has no real fotos but I has re-enactments furs your viewin' pleasures.
Wells I mean some are real fotos obviously...but they is old.

Sees, yesterday I was outside in my yard soakin' up some sun rays and breathin' in some good fresh 
airs and alls of a sudden out of da corner of my eyeball I seened it....
 So I hunkered down in my stalkin
likes dis.
And then...and then...I tooks off likes a mini greyhound withs no sense.
I was goin' like 60 miles an least, if not faster.

And then da damn fence gots in my way.

 I wents KABAAAAAAM right smack into it!
(NOTE: Dis ain't a foto...I drew dis withs my crayuns)

Knocked me back up bout a mile up da road.
I swears I looked likes a drunkard in a bar room brawl...not purties ya'll!
I has concussion nows.

Moral of da Story:
Fences is dangerous to your health

Oh da kerazy was sittin' back laughin' and a cacklin' at da whole thing too.

We loves you and we is sending our bestest vibes out to you
so dat you will gets all betters!

Miss Puddles! Are you sure you drew that picture of you smacking into the fence because it looked so real for sure. Mr. Groundhog is messing with you. Did he come over from the yard where the Po Po visited? Nothing but trouble.


Madi and Mom said...

MOL Puddles, Puddles, Puddles
Note to the old girl..."Read Puddles Blog then put on your mascara, otherwise you'll look like a raccoon all the day long"!!!

I don't know what was funnier your re-enactment or drawing. BTW good job of staying inside the lines with your coloring. Oh and one more thing, just because we are BFFs I feel it is my responsibility to tell you.......YOU have something red on your tush.
Hugs and cackles

What Remains Now said...

So glad you weren't hurt! Huntin' is dangerous...apparently.

Lovable Lily said...

Funny, funny, funny Puddles! I think your Mommy is rubbing off on you!!

Great drawing too. You may just be the next Picaso.

You are one talented artist, Miss Puddles! That groundhog was fearsome-looking with his beady red eyes and everything. I can totally see why you'd get so worked up that you'd forget about the fence. I think you were very brave protecting your family from that evil beast!


~Shelle said...

I think, as Governor, you should be doing more to take care of the Ground Hog Menace.... or maybe the Fence Menace... or maybe the Crazy Lady with Camera Menace. One of those things... cause Governorshipping ain't just Beer Cheese and Pretzels... its beer, cheetos and napping... and taking care of Menaces.

K, our mom is going to get some coffee, cause that didn't make a lick of sense... and we live with her and usually know what sort of rabbit hunt she is taking us on...

Bassetmomma said...

You probably get so much speed because you put your ears back and it helps cut the wind resistance. So, I was thinking you were pretty smart....until ya hit the fence! Maybe you should just turn your talents towards art. Your pretty good with the crayons! :)

Hound Girl said...

Holy crap I almost spit my coffee out from laughing.

1. Seriously that thing is scary - we dont have those here in Texas. I would have done the same thing if I saw that.

2. your drawing was awesome and I just cant stop laughing because it reminds me of the time Fred ran right into the doggie door when I had it closed one day - DUH all he had to do was look at the see the insert was in. ha. ha.

you are beautiful , wanna come lives us :)

Amber DaWeenie said...

Yikes! Dat ugly groundhog tingy put da spell on you and made you run into dat fence! (Do da groundhog sighting means dat winter is now over??)

Sissy April thanks you fur all da birfday wishes. Her said her might not want to eat cake today butt maybe some ice cream later.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OMD PUDDLES your artistic rendition of the collision is so GRAPHIC.

I looked at it and FELT your PAIN. Yes I really did.

That Groundhog is just stoopid. He should know better than to try to take on a MIGHTY DACHSHUND. We just LAFF at puny groundhogs. WE are BADGER HOUNDS.
I'll bet he didn't stop runnin and Poopin until he got to Georgia or somethingy.

He doesn't know how lucky he is that you were so RUDELY stopped by that FENCE.

I hope your Mum gave you a beer and some cheetos fur your efforts.

Ann Oon said...

Urmmm.. Puds... i think you has a heart stucks on your beeeeeeehind.. and and that black blob is laughing at your beeeeeeehind...

GOOSE said...

You sure that is a photo of the incident? It looked so real. And you was just a blur on my screen in the reenactment. I am surprised you did not just bust right through the fence. You must have held back just a little to give the groundhog a chance. I wonder, do they taste like bacon? I always knew you had a big heart, but holy dog for all that love coming out of your butt!! I know some peeps wear their hearts on their sleeves but you my bolt of lightning friend wear yours on your butt. I LIKE IT! With you we can see the love coming in your beautiful (all be it flattened) face AND going.

Casey said...

Wow, that groundhog was super scary! You're so brave for chasing him off.

Asta said...

I have nevew seen a gwoundhog, he looks enoowmoos and scaiwy and youw bwavewy is astounding(as awe yoow dwawing abilities..i was suwe that was a photogwaph)

Sending heling smoochies fow yoow con kushon

rottrover said...

Miss P? Do you really have a concussion now? Or is your cute and powerful doxie nose bent? We hope you'll live to hunt another day =)

Brian said...

There always seems to be something in the way of a good time Puddles!

Remington said...

You certainly have an exciting life, my friend....

Sam and Pippen said...

Good thing you didn't get your huge schnoze stuck in the fence!

Sam and Pippen

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

I think you need to start workin on a TUNNEL that goes UNDER the Fence. Once you have a couple of therapeutic drinks, that is.

Cole said... the fence new?! Or do you possibly need glasses?

Berts Blog said...

Oh Puddles, you crack us up all the time. I am sorry if you hurt your nose or keister when you hit that fence, but still is pretty funny.......

harrispen said...

Thanks for the laugh this morning. There is nothing more I can say that hasn't been already said.


Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

Oh ho! You are a fearsome creature indeed Puddles - not to mention a flippin' good artist (you could rival Damien Hirst anyway!)
Foiled by a piece of wire, next time he may not be so lucky, bwahhha haha!

OMD what a valiant protector! Must be nice having a fence, we don't so I'm almost never off leash

The Websters said...


I totally understand your fervor. Seriously, are we sisters??? You always tell stories that remind me of my life...then, I sound like the person who always has a story to share after the person shares a story...

This happened to me at the dog park and it wasn't only my humans laughing but a WHOLE PACK OF HUMANS I DIDN'T KNOW!

Anyway, I am so sorry for your hurt pride and I totally understand the need to guard what's yours.

Keep hunting!



Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Well, if that fence hadn't gotten in your way, we are certain you would have kicked ass!

Team Beaglebratz said...

Ms. ~K said...

Puddles, did hear us giggling here in GA? Sorry, but your drawing so just toooo funny! Hope you're feeling lots better!
Licks and sniffs,

Oskar said...

Well first you are an excellent artiste. I'm sorry that fat old groundhog made you all wonky-headed!

Thanks for all the laughs, Miss Puddles. We love your stalker look - the ears are the crowning touch - we are going to have to practice that when we are out stalking possums or rabbits.

chicamom85 said...

Puddles, You are so brave, it makes me shiver. You just ran with no thought for yourself, just trying to protect your family from that evil red eyed "thing". If that was a drawing(I have my doubts) then you should be drawing for a living, they would have special shows just for "Puddles Artwork" "So real you won't be able to tell the difference". I do hope that you are ok, it really scared me when you hit the fence. I hope all your insides are doing ok and that nothing came shooting out of you(if you know what I mean).
I noticed a red heart on your butt, so I thought maybe you left a little something.

Please be more careful in the future and take 2 seconds to breath and think before attacking.
You really scared me bad and now I have to go clean myself.

Corbin said...

You should sign your art work... could be worth millions one day for those of us who save them.

Gloria Hood said...

That sure was a scary face on the hog! Geesh! You draw as good as my Dad does. We think you should go into business with that! Oh! And I'll bet smacking into that fence felt like slamming into a glass door like I do sometimes. Who kissed your butt too????
Lovies, Miss Mindy

Mitch said...

You are a very good artist with your crayons, Puddles! I'm impressed!

Love ya lots,

KB said...

Yeah, I wonder if Mr. Groundhog is part of the bad family who got arrested.

Love the drawing!!!! It conveyed your smack much better than words!

60 mph? I see a Bunny-Puddles match up in the future.

scotsmad said...

Which kerazy was laughin' at you...your mum or the groundhog! We think you were set up.

Cheetos and beer are good for concussions....and maybe some ice cream.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Dearest Puddles,

Meowm doens't make us sleep in the laundry room, she wants us to do our business in the laundry room. She enjoys when we SLEEP with her in the big bed. Yep, we are kinda spoiled!

Sweet William The Scot said...

You had your eye on the prize and you missed seeing the fence. Things just have a way of smacking you in the face when you least expect.

A MilShelb Mom said...

Those darn fences! At least you can see through yours. We have privacy fences... of course, we wouldn't run into those, though! BOL!!
~Milly and Shelby

Grady and Leonardo said...

You made me laugh so hard I had tears rolling down my face to the point that my hubby was looking at me with the WTF are you reading look.

He has no taste(except in wives),so I just told him to go back to reading his paper. He then looks back and says " let me guess..... Puddles blog?"

Lorenza said...

I hope you are ok!
That drawing sure lets us know exactly what happened to you!
I hope Mr. Groundhog will not appear again!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Wyatt said...

Puddles, that is what happens to me when I see the squirrels! But, then I get real mad and try to bite the fence. Mom says that I am not the sharpest tool in the shed....what?


It's a Weinerful Life!!! said...

Oh no that monster got away!!! That fence. Well we hope you are okay. Until next time. We know you will be ready!!!! :) Happy WW!
~Weinerful Gang~

Mr. Pip said...

The thrill of victory and the agony of banging head on fence. Dang that fence!

You totally had that little monster! I demand a re-match in an unfenced area.

Your pal, Pip

Mr. Pip said...

My name is Lulu, can I take your order ...yes, I take payments of parsley and cilantro. No cabbage or cheeseburgers please.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

And that dang ground hog got away.
I hope your boo boo's heal ok,, and that you are able to patch the hole in the fence.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Excellent story! Fast paced, tightly constructed, great illustrations, just the right amount of humor. Hope your concussion is all gone. We think your mom is supposed to wake you up every time you try to sleep for about 87 hours, to be sure there is no serious damage to your valuable brains.

We have that same trouble with fences. Have you tried burrowing under yours? Abby has. But killjoy mama lined the whole fence with concrete blocks and secured them to the ground with steel re-bar. So our yard looks like your redneck neighbors, but mama doesn't care because she says at least we are secure. Phooey.

BordoggyTerrier said...

Go on there my Puddles - oh for the thrill of the speed and chase my dear, well that is about all I get to do, chase but never catch - I'd take a flying leap to the fence to mean I had one of my better days a hunting so I would! Do what out cat, Daphne would do when she falls off the fence, walk off slowly (perhaps that's best if one's sore!) and waive your tail slowly in the air from side to side pretending it was a deliberate act of stunning style and grace...seems to work for her? xx

Kaunis Nelli said...

I only hunt for squirrels and birds (well, I haven't caught any yet)... AND I saw a dead bunny! You are really brave.

Anonymous said...

Hahahahhaha! Oh the thought of you with fence imprinted on your lovely face just well ahem...sorry had to laugh ;) Some beer might help that concussion of yours ;)

Waggin at ya,

PeeS: Contest Today!

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Wow, that reenactment woz so in-the-fur real like. It woz like I woz there watching you go SPLAT on the fence. Not like I would know anything about that... (Darned sqwerrels....)

The Websters said... need to get a priest to your house STAT. Get that leaf blower checked out. Definitely possessed. I bet your neighbors put a curse on it.



K9 Katastrophie said...

All fences should be banned....

Doxie Rod said...

oh my goodness!! poor puddles, you would have gotten that groundhog if it wasn't for that fence. next time!

Shane Kent Louis said...

Me and my human Mom are glad that you weren't hate. :D

Keep safe,
