My First Cuz (and a faulty lobster)

The other day I received an absolutely pawsome parcel from my pals, Agatha & Archie. I could hardly believe my eyes when I opened it for it contained not one, but TWO cuz toys. I've had cuz-envy for quite some time as I keep reading about them on lots of US dogblogs. You may not know that as well as being treat-deprived here in the UK, we're also cuz-deprived!



They also sent a lovely lobster stuffie, but I think it must have been faulty or something because I'd barely glanced at it and it sort of 'sploded right in my face!





Now I thought the cuz might be a bit of a challenge and at first I had a few problems as it got so wet and slimy that it kept shooting out of my mouth and across the floor. Anyway, after studying it carefully I decided to go for its weak spot. I'm afraid there was no escape for Mr cuz because its feet lasted about 1 minute. J1 had to pick up the pieces quickly cos she didn't want me to swallow any of them.



Next I wanted to destroy the squeaker. That was quite straightforward; I just punctured it with my giant gnashers. You should have heard him squeal for mercy!



At this point J1 was a bit of a spoilsport and sent it to toy heaven cos I have a bit of a penchant for all things rubbery.

I nearly forgot to mention that there was also a special note inside the parcel just for me. I won't divulge the contents because a gentleman dog never tells. Needless to say I shall treasure it.



Meanwhile the Dino Cuz lives to fight another day. I'm saving him for a special occasion. Thank you so much Agatha & Archie, I had a pawsome time destroying (ahem) I mean, playing with these toys.

That was so nice of A&A to send you such great gifts! Too bad about the defective lobster. We've never been a fan of those Cuz things...we're probably the only dogs on earth that aren't.

Oh My...You and Teka. Remind me to hide all toys when either of you are in the area. I don't like to tell you this, but she easily destroyed the dino cuz...all of his scales fell off! really...

Gus and Louie said...

That is exactly what happens to our toys. Us dogs need to band together and create a canine proof toy.. Doesn't that sound like a great idea?

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Jackson, Good work! I'm thinking A & A should return that lobster and get you a new one. I've heard exploding lobsters are a bit of an epidemic on the eastern seaboard.

Dewey Dewster said...

Jackson my man....what a terrific terrier ya are...a chap off the old block....know why?.....my Gram won't even buy a Cuz 'cause she knows it will be history in about 2 minutes or less...she checks out all the toys at the stores and if it isn't made of steel it ain't comin' home....terrier jaws are deadly and we have 'em fer sure...what a terrible toy fate it is ta be a terrier....ya think those dog toy guys would test 'em out on us first, huh?
I tip my hat to ya, Jackson
Dewey Dewster here......

The Airechicks said...

Jackson:

We think you must ahve gotten a "DEFECTIVE LOBSTER" - have the J's take it back to the store and demand a NEW lobster...

Great work....you're good.....

Pretty card....don't know about those Cuz's they they don't look tough enough.....


XxoooXXoooXXXooo

Joe Stains said...

Oh boy, I hope you had some butter for that lobster. I cannot believe how fast you killed that Cuz, it takes us forever to kill one!

umekotyan said...

Good evening jackson.
It is a template of lovely blog.
It is felt that it is gentle.
And, a lot of crackers exist.
Enjoy wonderful destruction very much. :)

Pippa said...

So what exactly is a cuz?

For those of us who don't speak American. MIstress thought it was her relatives.

Charlie Daniels said...

I think you are the best at destruction and de-stuffing. Now if only I can convince the human to show me those pictures again so I can watch and learn! ;-)

Lenny said...

Hey Jackson, I am impressed with your Cuz-destroying skills. Mine still has its feet intact.

Your friend, Lenny

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

WOW...we're in awe. We have never seen a lobster explode quite so fast...ever.

And as for cuz destruction. Um...we've never been able to kill one. Oh we've tried.

We're inferior cuz destroyers compared to ur expertise, Jax...

We BOW...all three terriers bow heads in respect to Jackson's destructiveness.....

Stanley said...

Jackson!

Glad to see that you are cuz-deprived no more! I hope the dino cuz lasts longer than his predecessor.

What's this about a cherished note from Agatha? Is she your sweetie or what?

Goober love,
Stanley
