Puddles VS. Mr. Other Cable Man

My dear luverly furiends I hates to do dis to ya'll but mum is gonna be doin' 
dis heres post bouts my encounter withs Mr. Other Cable Man.
I knows, I knows it will prolly be borin' as hell but I has included some 
glamour shots of my beautiful self if ya'll gets bored. 
And also, whatevers subliminal messages you sees in red, say it out loud as you read.

So it seems Puddles apparently bit Mr. Other Cable Man.
We had quite a few different cable men at our house to fix our cable issues.
For some reason, it takes three different people to paint lines to show where the cable goes.
One man came and was in the back yard with Puddles and Albert.
Puddles approached him for him to rub her belly and after that she never once bothered him.
The next day I left the dogs in the back yard because I knew I would only be gone briefly
and for safety reasons I never leave the dogs alone outside...but this time I did infortunately.
When I pulled in the driveway Mr. Other Cable Man came right up to me and asked me if I could put the dogs in the house. I said sure but don't worry they will not bite unless you are a ground hog.
He quickly shot back in his Russian accent..."Oh but it did bite me!"
In the back of my mind I was thinking it was Whitney.
I asked him which dog and he said..."It was the little bitty brown dog...I stuck my foot under the gate and it latched on"

 I was beyond shocked and to be honest I really didn't believe him.
It bothered me the rest of the day that Puddles could actually do something like that.
She may be a loon, she may jump on the table, she may give me eat shit looks, she may steal food,
she may despise baths, she may be a tad on the hyper side, she may be bark to hear her on voice,
(you can stop nows mum)
but a vicious dog, NO.

If you knew Puddles in real life you would agree that she is an extremely loving dog, she
loves to be around people and children. She even adores being carried around like a baby.
(Mum dats enoughs)
To be honest,  Puddles actually has a wonderful temperament and personality.
(really mum you can stop nows)

However, Mr. Other Cable Man came back the next day to rebury the cable and I have 
never seen Puddles turn like that...every hair n her was sticking straight up and she made sure every tooth was visible along with growling and snarling at this man.
Her reaction was something I have only seen on TV.
I have never seen her react like that, not even when she has killed prey.
I was not home when the first encounter occurred so I have no idea if he provoked her or not.
I am completely in awe by the incident I saw with Puddles.

SO that is the jist of what happened and don't worry, the dogs will never be left alone again...EVER!

Well da dude just pissed me off. He shouldn't has been goin stickin' his foot under my gate.
And besides he was wearin' dis goofy hat looked stoopid.
Okays, clap your paws fur mum cuz she done...YAY!!!!!!!
(mum, you can goes away nows)
Nows wasn't dat just a dandy of a story?
Mum says it betters not evers happen again though.

Puddles...GOOD DOG

You know we dogs have senses about people. We are thinking there was something weird about that cable guy......we think puddles is a good dog for letting you know.

My Mind's Eye said...

PUDDLES GOOD DOG!!! I don't know how to get my comments red but use your imagination!!!

I, Madi, 200% back anything you do sweet friend 'cause I've been told Doxie are all about taking care of those they love. Maybe Mr. Cable man with the accent and hat is kissing cousins to the Stooooopids.
Just sayin'
oh and OMDoxies those were some Glamour Shots for sure.

Hugs Madi your BFFF and wing gal

My Mind's Eye said...

I love your new header!!

Lovable Lily said...

Have you been taking lessons again from our Muffin? She loves to go after the ankles of strangers.

Tell your Mom that you were just protecting your yard from the strange intruders. Maybe if mr other cable man and his buddies fixed everything the first time, you wouldn't be in this situation.

Puddles = Good Dog! (Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!)

The pictures with the story were priceless.

And your new header ~ PAWSOME!!

Puddles, Good dog. We think that Cable man must have done something to you to upset you. We think you did the right thing if you really did anything at all. We love the new header too. Hope all of you have a great day.

Bobbie said...

hahahahahaha! Puddles good dog! That will learn him!!

Unknown said...

OMD Puddles we are crying with laughter. PUDDLES IS A GOOD DOG!!!!!!! Teaches him right for sticking his boot under the gate and for wearing a stupid hat. No worries pal I use hate this postman. I'd go ballistic if I saw him. The current one I like, so not a posty thing. And top top secret which my peeps is ashamed of I really hate the smelly man who walks down our streets. Peeps has to hide her face as she usually is crying with laughter when I go for him. Homeland security pal, our peeps should be ever thankful. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

Oh Puddles, you ARE a good dog! I'm sure you were provoked. Maybe you just are not a fan of Russian men with funny hats on! We KNOW you are a good dog!!

I normally have to put Riley away when repair people come...she doesn't bite them, no, she jumps all over them and won't leave them alone! She thinks they're here just to see her and pet her!

Thanks for telling the story, we've been looking forward to it. Although, did you really have to let the Kerazy Lady tell it?? ;) Just kidding! Have a great Wednesday! It's almost FRIDAY!

Grady and Leonardo said...

Good MOrning Ms. P

Our take on this whole situation is that you thought this strange cable guy was breaking into your backyard and you were just protecting your property. Aren't Doxies very protective of their stuffs?

We're in total agreement with the GOOD DOG theory, and think he did something bad to make you react like that the second time.

Millie and Walter said...

Since your mum wasn't there at your first meeting with Mr. Other Cable man she can't be sure he didn't try to hurt you first. Then when he came back you just remembered you didn't like him and reminded him of that. We say way to go Puddles Good Dog.

Millie & Walter

P.S. We love your new header

FURst.... LOVE your New Header Puddles.. GOOD PUDDLES...
We think that the Crazy Cable guy must have either SMELLED BAD somehow.. OR he DID SOMETHINGY BAD to YOU or Whittney or Albert. YOU (GOOD PUDDLES) were doing your JOB of keeping your property and the Blobs SAFE. THAT is our story and WE are stickin To it.. and WITH YOU (Good Puddles).

Matilda the Boxer said...

Puddles is a VERY good dog! When someone goes sticking his foot under your fence instead of properly knocking and introducing himself, then obviously he's up to no good and should be bit!

Wyatt said...

That is how I feel about the propane man, Puddles....I'm a good dog.
I know you are a good dog too :D


stellaroselong said...

This is what we think about the whole tado here in Iowa....we thinks we loves your new header, and we knows Puddles is a good dog, we loved those pictures, AND we thinks that cable guy was up to NO good and that you, puddles was the only one smart enuf to notice that! We think you should call 1-800-Cablefreaks and turn him in!

Hey Puddles!
Wow, you are totally a good dog! It's absolutely essential to try to bash any technopeep. They all deserve it. The never get anything right and are a totally pain in the a$$. What exactly was he doing with his foot anyway... certainly nothing that would fix the cable. shesh. Yes, he deserved the eat-shit look and the bash!

You better listen to Puddles. Something is wrong with that dude! If Calhoun happens to be aloof or not like someone, I keep moving because something is up with that person!

Hari OM
let me get this straight,
mum leaves you in the garden,
then strange man comes to gate.
He sticks his foot right at ya
so his ankle you ate?

Seems fair. That makes Puddles a good (guard) dog. The only time Jade ever showed nasties to hoomans was when they was up to no goods.

Anyways - Puddles is also a header hog! Albert and Whitney look on agog. Glad you gave them some space. Also glad you let mum have the keyboard for a while. Hope you licked her HELLObone after, cos it was surely aching from all that tale-telling?! (But y'knows it was cos she's really rather proud of ya donchya???)

Just don't do it again. Puddles, you good dog you... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty, xxoxoxoxx

Ziggy Stardust said...

Puddles first of all Holy Dookies your blog looks so cool!! I love it! Ok now, I am very proud of you for protecting your property and family from intruders. I can only imagine the horror, the things he must have said and done to provoke you. Perhaps you thought we were being invaded by a foreign country and you were not only protecting your family but AMERICA. I am certain you will be invited to the white house so start working on your speech and maybe get your nails done. I for one am proud know you today. "Puddles my friend, that saved our way of life" I love(sniff, snort, snots) you. I can't talk anymore, I am off to spread the word. "Have abeer, Puddles saved us

rottrover said...

Puddles, we met you. We KNOW that you wouldn't just go off on some guy. He, in his big floppy hat and dumb shoes provoked you. He's a big squirrelbutt. You need a rottweiler costume to wear when your mum isn't home - no one comes to our fence when the peeps are gone - hehehehe.

PUDDLES GOOD DOG!! Yes, trust your instincts Puddles. Obviously something was awry with that cable guy.
Bailey, Hazel & Greta

What Remains Now said...

I would say that Puddles was in extra protection mode with you being away and she didn't forget him the second time or something wasn't right with the man. Pups can tell things like that. Puddles is a good dog.

Likes to be carried around like a baby (snicker).

Duke said...

Did he step on your food as he stuck his foot under your gate,GoodGirlPuddles? Something smells fishy to us! hummmmmm

Love ya lots♥

Pudds, I am speechless. Did you really? The Typist got bitten by a pack of dachshunds when she was little. She walked into their yard too. Hmmm.

Great photos of a good dog.


My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

Hi Puddles and mom. Hmmm..I wonder if there's something more to it than meets the eye. I wonder if Mr. Other Cable Man didn't do something. Sam will occasionally bark and growl at a total stranger and while there's no way that that stranger had anything to do with Sam as he's never alone with anyone outside the house, a stranger might remind him of something in the past. So maybe other cable guy reminded Puddles of somthing in the past with someone else...

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Mom always says that a dog responds to how it is treated. Bad treament solicits bad response. We bet that Cable Guy used his foot on you, Puddles. We all agree, Puddles is a GOOD DOG.

Duh, that should be treatment, not treament.

I love seeing beautiful picshurs of Puddle Good Dog Puddles Good Dog Puddles GoodDog....

We're thinking Puddles knew the man was not nice and should be bitten BUT we are sure she did NOT bite him cuz Puddles is a good dog!

Dachshund Nola said...

It makes me really nervous when Nola has pronounced reactions to people like that, as it's usually a very good reason. Who the hell sticks their foot under a fence with barking dogs?!?!

PS: Love the new header! Where did you get Puddles' purple collar in it? It's adorable!

Reuben said...

Puddles, I applauds your extremely brave efforts to protect your properties. You has done well, my friend. Sure, the peoples is always like "no Reuben, no does that, it is bad..." I mean, Puddles.... but they is wrong. Those pictures of you looking adorable should be proof enough that you is good dog; brave protectings is only icing on the liver snaps.


Sally Ann and Andy said...

You werr just protecting your family, so your fine. Don't fret.

Unknown said...

Puddles we KNOW he did something to set you off like that!!! Bet you see him on MOST WANTED posters or something later on! Trust in Puddles...if Puddles reacted that way and never has before...don't let this dude in your house! Seriously!

Scooter said...

Good Dog Puddles!!
You are just protecting your place and your peeps, nothing wrong with that and Yah...he shouldnt have stuck his foot under your gate Geezz.....

Maybe the cable guy was a groundhog in disguise?

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Miss Puddles, we never thought GOOD DOG you were anything GOOD DOG butt a good dog. That cable man GOOD DOG sounds like he did GOOD DOG something bad GOOD DOG to you. We're glad GOOD DOG you are ok GOOD DOG. What the GOOD DOG heck did he stick his foot GOOD DOG under the gate for? What GOOD DOG a nutter. Anyhow we just wanted to GOOD DOG say we definitely think you GOOD DOG are a good dog. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Ruby said...

Well Hell's Bells Gurl!!!!!
I thinks you did exactly what you were suppose to do!!! For God's sake, if some dufus sticks his foot under my fence, he's gonna be called 'peg-leg' from now on!!
I'm with Sasha, your just protectin' your Family and AMERICA!! I'm sure the President is gonna call it Puddles Day. And you and Bo can have funs all over the White House lawn (and you can see if the Secret Service dudes have tasty ankles!! hehehe)
Puddles a Good Dog??? Well HELL YES!!!!
Oh, and I hopes you didn't catch any Cable Guy cooties....

Dexter said...

Sometimes people have something scary inside of them that makes even a Puddles Good Dog lose control and want to keep that person at bay. Maybe your mom should listen to your warnings and tell them to send a less scary cable guy next time.

Oh, PS...Puddles Good Dog, we love your new header! Meant to tell you that the other day, but I couldn't get over the fact that you let your Mum do the post... ;) Just kidding! Have a great weekend and try not to bite any weirdo cable men!

Puddles is a good dog! I bet she sensed something off about that cable man! Dogs are good like that!

I love, love, love your new Header Picture!! There!! I got that "out of my system", as the phrase goes!! ;)
"And also, whatevers subliminal messages you sees in red, say it out loud as you read.". That brought a cockeyed smirk to my face!! Seriously!! This is going to be such fun!! ;-D
Oh, you were only defending your property, Puddles!! GOOD DOG!! ;)
And your Mum's telling of that story? I liked it!! ;op

Hmmm... My peep says that Uncle Fergus was always a nice, furendly boy to everyone... Until one man came to deliver a book case. Fergus didn't like him... he bit him right on the ankle! They had to lock Fergus in the bathroom!

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

I agress with every "Puddles is a good dog" that Goose said. You was just protecting your home and family.
With all the 'puter problems we all been having I would have done the same thing but he wouldn't be walking out the gate, he's be crawling out. LET ME AT HIM!!!!

Weenie is still in the hospital, please say a prayer for him and Mommy too! cause shes gonna lose her mind and it's loney without the little fella to snuggle with.


The Websters said...


I think you have an excellent sense of character and great judgement. Your mom should be THANKING you for protecting the family!!!


Sweet William The Scot said...

You got a new header with some great color, we love the header. Now maybe Puddles knows something about that cable man, I believe in Puddles instinct. What was the cable man doing when mom was not there.
Good Puddles

My mum says Puddles was doin' her guard dog duties. She sees it as her place and her yard... so then if some stoopids man sticks his foot into her territory .... this is yard and space invasion and MUST BE PROTECTED!!

Puddles is GOOD dog!!

Good dog Puddles. Good dog Puddles. Hey! How were you supposed to know to NOT bite the Other Cable Guy when he was coming onto your properties without permission (since mum wasn't home)...he may just have deserved a good bite to the toe!

Puddles! You will never guess who I got to hang out with today at BlogPaws!! Okay, you can probably narrow it down... Your BFF Mayzie's mom! She is super wonder Mayzie is so cool! Wish you were here. There's quite a few Doxies here, but none as gawjuss as you, of course! (Don't tell them I said that though)! And there's no weird big booted, funny hat wearing Cable Men here--yahoo!

Hope your Kerazy Lady's HELLbow isn't acting up (again)! You need to tell her that she needs to suck it up and get her HELLbow surgery already. Okay, that was mean, but she's more stubborn than the stubbornest Doxie! And that's stubborn! Hope you are doing okay!
