Paw power

Ok pals, I'm back and I'm feeling much more like my old self today...
The Js and I would like to thank each and every one of you for all your posts, comments and emails. We've been overwhelmed by the positive responses from old friends and new. All power to the paw, we're going to fight this!

The Js were absolutely delighted to receive a beautiful bunch of sunflowers from our special pals at Dogs with Blogs. That was really kind of you all. Thank you.

Anyway, I think it's about time I got back to normal. This of course means returning to my very important day job of toy tester extraordinaire. Luckily enough my wirey pal Eric sent me a new toy a couple of weeks ago. It's a set of squeaky teeth...

He challenged J1 to get a photo of me wearing them before they need to take a trip to the dentist for emergency repairs. Mmm, not an easy task as you can imagine. Here is the best out of a bad lot...


OK, I know that I've got them in back to front, but they didn't come with fitting instructions!
And here is the obligatory "after" shot...This was taken after about 1 minute when J1 had to wrestle with me to give it up...
All in a day's work.

My goodness. Maybe you should have held them in reserve, so that if you EVER meet a stuffie you cannot vanquish in under 45 seconds, you could call on them for help. Oh well, too late. Hope they were tasty

Too bad J couldn't get a picture of you with the teeth in your mouth (looking like they were your teeth)... Archie's idea....... Was that destruction done in nano seconds?? Atta boy!!!! We learn from the Master...Love and kisses A+A

Petey said...

Jackson my pal!

Glad to see what a wonderful job you did transforming those pearly whites into a "before" photo for Austin Powers' chompers. Maybe you're responsible for all those rumours about bad British dentistry?

So happy to hear you're feeling all the wiry vibes we're sending your way. Cuz' I may need your advice, my sage friend. I have a date with TWO terrier girls tonight! Yep, a threesome. Yikes!

Your pal,

Petey

Jackson:

That is some serious destory time.

We've decided that you need to be employed by some toy company to help them develop the undestructable toys...

You are the BEST toy tester we've every known....

Happy to see you feel better...

We're still going to hang on tight to you in our prayers....

P.S. tell Asta & lacie - "GOOD JOB"

Eric said...

Good to see you back and fighting Jackson.

Nice try on the set of pearly whites but I'm afraid you've been disqualified for using the wrong way round method.Did you have the in the glass beside your bed first for acclimatisation? No good at all. Nil points.I'm afraid this may mean a replay could be in order or another challenge....

Wiry wags, Eric x x

Mine adopted Mommy was Bear, a poodle. She raised me from when I was just a few weeks old. She'd try to purr when someone needed purrs, but it always started out "grr... uh... grrr.... ggrrpuuurrr". Effurryone laffed and laffed. But she was tha bestest mommie ever.
Love and purrs,
KC

We are so glad you are feeling better. Those teeth look like fun to play with, although a trip to the dentist may be in order for them. Obviously not your fault, faulty construction if you ask us. ~Socks, Scylla & Charybdis

Stanislaw said...

Hey Jackson!

My mom was ordering some supplements for me today, and thought she should send this along:
http://ncane.com/s0k
We got some of this Immune Blend - we've only heard rave reviews about it and it's pretty much got everything we need but the fish oil. (We also get the green blend too, which is also immune-supportive.)

Mom gets us the inexpensive 180/120 fish oil from Whole Foods that's for people - the "365" brand. Only about $7 for 200 pills!

Here's a good article that talks about the link between carbs and cancer and offers diet advice:
http://ncane.com/xhl

Alrighty. I bet you're humans have been all over the internet and know this stuff already, but I like to share! Glad to see you're feeling better and you're teaching your toys a lesson!
