Mr. Cutter's Word of the Day©.

Bonjour ~Mr. Cutter~

Today's word of the day is:

CATCH UP (not Ketchup or catsup):  When the world has gone so fast that you have to CATCH UP the rest of the world on how fast it has been.

  1. OPOSSUM:  The critter has been cruising through our back yard every single night!  We can smell it.  A week ago when it was pouring down rain Pepper and I found the Opossum intruder in the upper garden.  Mom knew from the barking and how hard it was raining something was going on, so she slogged out with a flashlight and counted.  One.  Two.  Three.  Beady pair of eyes.  One too many for the barking going on.  Reluctantly we came back inside after much yelling.  Rubbed out wet bodies all over the carpet and couches and rubbed muddy paws on the bed.  Ruin our fun in the name of "safety"!
  2. The Parents are back and cannot believe the progress I have made since I was rescued.  Mom's Dad was so happy that I actually got on his lap and was friendly.  No food involved either!  It's been a long 4 year journey for me to become the annoying Mr. Cutter I charm the world with.
  3. YARDWORK:  This appears to be what Mom calls popping up out of bushes and flowers to yell at us when we are investigating sniffs from above Opossum point number 1 above.
  4. VITAMIN Dog:  That inviting smell of warm sunshiny dog fresh from rolling in a mysterious smell from nature.  (Probably dried up worms or slugs - odor-licious bonus).
  5. CITRUS FACE:  What happened to me after I snuck off with half a squeezed lime that slipped out of Mom's hands onto the floor.
For the record.
This is a picture of Mom's face after I snagged the lime and ran.
That's a lot of words for me, so I need to go BARK at something now!

Mr. Cutter's Word of the Day©.

Bonjour ~Mr. Cutter~

Today's word of the day is:

PAWFERCT!!:  Pups the weather was a bit overcast this morning, but we all headed out to Snoopervise™ the yardwork.

Yard Work Boots.

Do you see flowers?  Or a Sneaky Cloud Dragon?

This is the top of the "Morning Wood Tree™"
Sure you think it's so pretty....

Poor Helena the Toad .
Magnolia flowers dumped and swept onto her for weeks now.
Let it be known, I never pee on Helena.
Even though she is right next to Morning Wood Tree™

This Magnolia will stain a deck faster than a rain cloud passes through Seattle.
*Addendum* we mean overnight.

This mess.
We bring as much of it in as we can!.
Are you looking for your PNW Rhodie update?  We'll keep you pupdated as we roll into July with the colors that ka-pow in our yard.  We have over 17 different Rhodies or Azaleas to watch flower.

This is off the deck and one of the first to bloom.

This one is across the yard.
If you are tall enough can see from the kitchen window.

Or just go outside and take a gander.
It's about 15 feet high and only just starting to turn bright pink.
Did you pups know we have Chiggens?

These are called Hen and Chiggens.
I know.
Can't even reach that high to pee on them.  

They are guarded by the Mighty Tree Frog.

They can colonize as well.

Don't mess with this Frog.
Did you know we can actually get Scooter to come outside for some fresh air on occasion?  It's true, we have some documented proof.

This grass is as fluffy as I am.

Nothing going over there.

I could be watching Scooby Doo.

Still nothing going on over there.

I''m taking my leaf and going back inside.
'cept I'm headed the wrong way to go inside.
  Did you know I'm almost always in trouble?  I'll be the first to tell you it's not MR. CUTTER she's yelling out the door all the time!!

Can't even walk in the weed patch anymore.
Stupid Peonies are sprouting up.

Walk of Shame 2014.
Can't even bark at the kids barking at me.

Can't pee here.

Fine, I'll "Move Along".

Can't a pup get a moment alone with his "Waste Management" Privacy Please™ time?
The Meatz™ is smelling good and we'll keep you updated on tomorrow.  The yard has to get mowed and stuff.  Green paws for all the Papillon Pack!

Adieu ~Mr. Cutter~

Mr. Cutter's Word of the Day©.

Bonjour ~Mr. Cutter~

Today's word of the day is:

URKA GURKA: When your tummy doesn't feel good for some unknown reason and you feel the need to eat grass until this happens.

Warning - graphic image.


Bluch - still feel queasy.
I think I'll just stay here for the rest of the day and listen to my stomach talk to me.
