Uh, I Gots In Trubles

Yes, I knows dat is very shocking to knows dat I gots in trubles.
But, I did.
It all started out as innocent as could be when I found sumptin dat struck my fancy.
Nows if you look in da below foto of my gorgeous self (da foto ya'll has been waitin' to see of me)
you will see some berries dat be kinda blueish, purplish lookin'.
They AIN'T blueberries.

No, look at da berries, not at ME.
Did you sees da berries ?
Okays good.

Well guess what!
Sure as da world I did.
I went gobble gobble...and gobble.
And then I gots in trubles!

(Note from mum: at furst I thought she was eating a pecan otherwise, I wouldn't have been taking pictures.)

(Muuuuuuuuuum, SHHHHHHHHHH...I's tellin' da story heres)

Now where was I befores I was interrupted?
Oh yea, So mum was screaming and yelling and sayin a bunch of Neighbor words (those are HBO words to ya'll) and tellin' me to stop.

Da thing belongs to da neighbor (da good neighbor) and they don't knows what it is but, my papa thinks it's a Ligustrum or a Privet.
Don't worry though cuz they ain't poisnous, they just cause INSOMNIA...hehehehehe.
Imagine ME bein' on likes 3 cups of coffee....whewweeeeeee!

Does ya'll haves any ideas what it could be?
Sorry, I don't has an actual picture of da tree/shrub.
Congratulations to Mayzie and her mom !
Well done girls!
And I wanna say thanks to everybuddy fur their help and support to makes da commentathon such a success with a whopping 415 comments.

Peace Out,

If you had eaten any more you might have turned a bright blue color! Not good Puddles, not good!

houndstooth said...

I think they look like juniper berries, but I don't know for sure! Tee hee! Next thing we know, you're going to be making an energy drink that's made of beer with those berries added in as flavor!


3 doxies said...

I should haves also mentioned dat da leaves are actual leaves and not pine needley lookin' like a Juniper.


Maggie Mae and Max said...

PeeS Mom is a bit jelly of your weather. You know you lives in da Northeast when you thinks a 34 degree day is warm! ;)

Mee sure hopes yoo donts get a squitty tummy Puddles dat woulds be SOOOOOO not goods.
Dere woulds be puddles den.

Unknown said...

What berries??? I don't see anything!
OH!! Can I take da bag off my head now??????

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! Guess What? I've eaten those berries too. Hope your tummy is okay. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

My Mind's Eye said...

Did you wash the berries down with beer?

I want to thank you for living your life with such gusto and living in each moment you are my heroine and you keep my life interesting just by knowing you.

I hope you didn't get too many demerits for the deed.
Hugs and purrs,

My Mind's Eye said...

PS Puddles we are very glad Mom didn't have to take another 'walk of shame' into the pharmacy for another Puddles remedy. MOL
Sorry we could not help ourselves.

Unknown said...

BOL! at Madi's "walk of shame comment"!! momma thinks her is da big plant and gardening expert (sigh) and her said that if that leaf on da ground goes on da same bush as da berrries.....then her believes it is da Ligustrum berries. And according to her Googles, they is A-OK and even used as herbal medicines.

Now our ligustrum bushes dont normally drop that many berries....butt then again you been having lots more cold and snow!

There you have it!

Unknown said...

PeeS.....Has your mom considered building a plexiglass bubble fur da Puddles to live in???
..just sayin'...

The Ladies of Beaglebratz Manor said...

Shiloh'n Shasta here - we agree with the otherz - stay with the cheetoz an'beer cuz ya'no they iz safe.

PeeS - there iz an award fer u over at our blog.

jen said...

O Puddles is that rabbit turds??
Please tell me you didn't eat rabbit turds cause that is just gross!
(I have no idea what those little things could be, they look like blueberries but you said they wasn't so we are clueless as usual:)

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

Based on Minna's commentary (note big word dere)....Your Mum could make a fortune if she invented....da PUDDLES BUBBLE....yes...DA PUDDLES DUDDLES BUBBLES!!!! You a Hamster Bubble..only Puddles sized. My Mom would be da furst to place an order for one....for teenie weenie ME!

And by da way.....looking at dos fotos again....are you sures dat Charcoal and Charcoal didn't visit?

Unknown said...

We also have big shrubs called da Japanese Blueberry and they have berries that look like a Blueberry (big surprise, considering da name, huh) They can grow in S.C. and don't have to be in Japan.

not toxic.......okay? okay.

HH and The Boys said...

I don't know my berries, but you be careful eating foreign things there Puddles. We don't want you to get poison... no siree...

Have a great day.

pawhugs, Max

SASS....Sammy Andy Shelly Sierra said...

Darlin' Puddles, we can't imagine you ever being more wired than you normally are!!!!!!

We are so thankful they weren't poisonous.

Love, love, love to all of you

Remington said...

Miss Puddles if only you would answer your phone, I would tell you....

Anonymous said...

Well, shoot, girlfurend! I sure coulda used some of those yesterday during the Commentathon. But that's okay. The Kool-Aid did a pretty good job of keeping me up.

I dunno why you got in trouble for eating those. The only thing better than Puddles is Puddles going full-strength 24/7. Heehee!

Wiggles & Wags,

Backcountry Brodie said...

I think the antidote fur that be beer.

Brian's Home Blog said...

You be careful Puddles, you might end up doing the Beer Berry Polka!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Well now you seem to have gotten yourself into ANOTHER mess. Those thingys could have caused a nasty reaction... like a total personality change or something..
What if you suddenly started tellin everybuddy that Cheetoes and Beer are BAD fur them and should be avoided at all cost. What if you started to BEHAVE all the time. Oh that would be terrible. No more Puddles Inventions for sale. No more Kool Aide Flavors. The Blogville Economy would Crash and we would all be standing in line fur a small bowl of Kibble. No more Snacks and toys. No more super Pawties. OMD OMD
What if you start Pooping and Peeing BLUE????

Bobbie said...

Oh Puddles, you should write a book! You make my day. I hope you don't get sick or anything.. Why is it that you dogs insist on eating things your not supposed to eat? Gracie has a thing for rabbit poop. Yea ~ pretty gross, right? Or do you eat that stuff too?

The Daily Pip said...

BOL, Minna Krebs! Puddles living in a plastic bubble, bawhahahahaha! I guess if it was fully stocked with beer and cheetos it wouldn't be so bad.

Your pal,Pip

P.S.: No idea about the berries. The only berries I know anything about are the kind you buy in a store.

Corbin said...

Hmmm... maybe you can keep eating some more berries and with all that extra energies, you can zoomie yourself up to my house!

Anonymous said...

I really hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you're probably not going to survive this. Those "berries" cause doxies (only doxies) to become extremely bloated and full of toxic gas. This gas easily ignites and when it does, you will explode and be hurled into outer space never to be seen or heard from again:(

Sorry Puddles.

PeeS: Can I have your flying laundry basket?

Anonymous said...

So these are the berries you were telling us about the other day. We should have never said anything about Riley liking blackberries...did you mistake those for blackberries? Umm, because they look way different.

Now I'm-a-thinking that these little blue berries (not blueberries, bluuuuue berries!) are something kin to that chewing gum in Willy Wonka. It's only a matter of time before you taste the blueberry pie and turn into a blueberry and your mom will have to roll you off to the vet's office!

Oh, the horror!

Elyse and Riley

Pippen said...

Tank's right... Them's called exdoxieberry and you only have a few hours... although when we googled it to get more info, the internets said that purple koolaid was the antidote.

Sam and Pippen

PeeS. We ate strange berries once too (and when we say 'we' we mean SAM...) they came out the same color they went in! So mom wasn't too worried, fascinated but not worried...

Barbara said...

We have a tree next door that has grown over our fence and drops berries just like that. If you leave them where they drop, they grow trees!

So, you better be careful, you might have a tree growing in your belly!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Puddles, as long as the berries belong to "the good neighbor" which mades us laugh because that's how neighbors are classified on this street and we only have one "good neighbor", we think you should be okay. Mom freaks out if I do something like that (and I'm always into something) and she calls the VET all of the time. We can't help it...if it looks good we eat it!! Hope you are feeling okay!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Bocci said...

So sorry we missed your comment a thon! My bad!

We can't help you on discovering what those berries are , but hope you're all right!

Scooter said...

Hey Puddles!
Wow, they look kinda yummy, but I'm not much for healthy fruits & veggies. At least you got a big rush out of them and not the sickies! That would be bad. Love the background song! Perfect.
Grr and Woof,

Oh my goodness did Madi say that out loud? I apologize profusely. If I can catch her I'll wash her mouth out with soap. LOL

Deborah said...

Puddles, Puddles, must have been hungry!!

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

So Puddles, have you napped since you ate those berries?

Two French Bulldogs said...

Puddles when you find out let us know, cause those berries sure are good. BOL

the teacher's pets said...

I've never met a dog who can't stay away from berries before and TRUST ME I've walked a lot of dogs of every shape and size so I think you are either unique or just plain of the two! heehee!
Thanks for wishing me a happy birthday too! Your words made my day even if they were a day late!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Cannot imagine you with 3 cups of caffeine added to your usual self. Bet if they could bottle it, it could send several shuttles into space.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

And SHE wouldn't let me eat a found piece of bread---yeesh!

the booker man said...

miss puddles,

mama says those look like juniper berries. are you bouncin' off the walls yet? heehee.

the booker man


WE agrees dem look like juniper berries to us.
How many did yoo gits Miss Puddles?


Anonymous said...

If you haven't exploded yet, you better get to Sam & Pippens ASAP. You got more troubles than you think missy!!

Jackie said...

Oh Miss Puddles, I hope you didn't get a tummyache from all those strange berries! I know it's hard to resist noms, though, no matter if you recognizes them or not! Did they taste nommy?

Concerned Wiggles,


Duke said...

Juniper berries are blue like those, Puddles. Were they tasty?

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Hi Puddles, my love. Did you miss me? Tell your mudder it could be worse. You could have been snacking on rabbit poo. You really should try it sometime...


Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Oh, Puddles, we're just so glad that those berries aren't poison. Insomnia is not nearly as bad as poison. We were so happy we could pawticipate in the commentathon. We've had two different cable guys to the house, but the internet and Alpha Mom's phone go out as soon as the temp goes below freezing - which it does a lot these days. So we were lucky to be able to get there.

Maureen said...

Boy, oh boy, Puddles. You is right. We is a lot alike. I get in the troubles all the time for eating stuff on the ground. Mom's always yelling, "No sidewalk snacks Honey!" But dangnabbit! What do they expects?! We is only a few inches off the ground. If they would only bother to spend more time down at our level, they too would see all the deliciousness that is presented to us daily!

A girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do!

Big slurps, HoneyBuzz

PS - No, I won't be changing my mind about french fries. I don't like potato chips either. But Doritos and Cheetos are a-ok with me!! Woooooooo!

♥ Sallie said...

Yep. Stick to the cheetos and Kool-Aid. Waayyy safer!



A MilShelb Mom said...

We get in trouble for eating things that Mom doesn't know what it is, too! We love to eat the random berries on our walks... and Mom fusses at us. Oh well. Doesn't bother us any. hahaha!
~Milly and Shelby

Tucker said...

I don't eat stuffs like that, unless it was in deer, cat, or bunny poop. Oh and fox poop is good too. Dog poop is gross and Bear poop has too much seeds. And Coyotee poop has too much fur.

Do you think that they may be juniper berries?

woof - Tucker

Asta said...

Ummm, those joonipew bewwies iwhat they make gin out of, so i don't think you'll be having In Somnia, heheheheh

KB said...

My guess is juniper berries but I don't have any idea if they exist where you live... My dogs don't eat them - there are tons and tons and tons of them in our forest and my labs have never shown any interest. They eat every other kind of berry so it kind of mystifies me.

Birds eat them so maybe they're ok for eating.

Thank goodness that you showed us a picture of *you* but now you have me all worried... Please be careful of your precious self, Puddles!

KB said...

If you ever need it, there's an ASPCA poison control center at They also have a phone line that's open 24/7 at (888) 426-4435. We've had great experience(s) with them (yes, we get in a lot of trouble over here). They don't have juniper listed as poisonous to dogs.

Anonymous said...

Oh Silly Silly Puddles :) Glad there won't be any long term bad effects ;)
Don't be jumping on your mom when you're up all night though!!

Hope you don't get no upset stomach Puddles.

PS I totally would hae eaten them too! I mean I eat used cigarret butts for goodness sakes. Shhh don't tell no ones.


Tucker said...

Oh ok I is glad that those berries don't have poisons in them. It doesn't take much for little doggies to get sickies from bad stuff. Me I can eats more cause I is hooman size.

woof - Tucker

Wyatt said...

Puddles, don't eat random stuff on the ground, silly dog! Do as I say, not as I do...Hahaha!!
Looks like Viburnum berries. You can just wash them down with a beer!!


Lorenza said...

If I am looking for trouble... I can always come to read your posts!
OMD! I can imagine you with insomnia!
I hope they will not make you sick later!
I agree with our friends. Cheetos and beer is what you should stick to!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Neeko said...

OMDogness Cutie Pie!

I’m sooo glad you are alright.
No idea what kind of berries those are but I tell you that I would have done the same thing. They do look yummy…
You are lucky your Mommy did not have your tummy pumped.
I agree with the majority that you should stick with Cheetos and beer.

Neeko ♥

My Mind's Eye said...

We dropped by to say Happy Saturday and we just love the Blueberry Hill song in the background. Mom said she is going to throw her other computer out the window it did not play Blueberry Hill yesterday.
