Chiweenie v. Black Beetle

After our long visit with the dog vet the other day, M decided to visit a friend to vent. We were all invited to take in the sun on her friend's deck, as the two women had coffee and nice chat.

I was happy to leave the dog vet's office
I love sitting in the sun and gazing around me for hours at a time

The chiweenie, on the other hand, is restless, as designer dogs often are
She found herself a black beetle

The chiweenie acted like she'd never seen a bug before in her life

She approached the black beetle

She cautiously . . .

. . . inched up on him

M finally kicked the common black beetle off the deck and soon we were headed back home.

As expected, Frankie and I were rather spent

But Linguini, dog vet visit and dog tumors temporarily forgotten, got the honorary seat for a change and stayed alert as any good co-driver should

Chiweenie v. Black Beetle: 0-0

Why did your M not step on that there beetle...squish it like da bug it is..squish,squish. At least Frankie didn'ts eat it though.
Glad M had a good session with hers friend, even though the thoughts of tumors weren't fars behind hers. We're thinking good vibrations fur all da tumors to go away.

We have a cat that eats those. It's always handy to have one bug eater in the house, but why is it always a four legger's job?

We all like to bounce those big beetles around with our snooters, and sometimes TD will try to eat one.

Linguini looks quite regal in her honorary seat there.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

That beetle might not be safe to eat, Frankie! Better pass on that as a snack option!

Hi Twinkie, You won't believe this... I just came from Mona's blog... her mom is all wild with worry JUST LIKE YOURS IS. It's like an epp a dem ick or something. Mona's mom found a Bump thingy on her!!! She has gone to the VET once and has to go on Thursday to have this thingy taken away. I thought maybe you could lend some of your grrrreat support to Mona and her mom, beclaws they really could use it right now too.
I'm thinkin' that you are all going through the exact same stuff and could make each other feel better.

We hate those black beetle things. They hiss and stink! Good thing Frankie didn't bite.

Love,
Stella, Gunther and Betty

Mango said...

Ick! That beetle was yucky. I am glad Frankie did not try to eat it. Gross. Linguini looks great! I hope she is feeling better.

Slobbers,

Sallie said...

The vet and a scary, black beetle all in one day? I'd be hiding under that blanket.

KB said...

The beetle looked almost as big as you, Twinkie! Sounds like the dog vet visit turned into a bit of a fun time, hanging out on the deck in the sun. That's always a good thing!

ocmist said...

Tumors?! Oh, dear... we are so far behind! We will have to sniff this out!

You better tell Frankie to be careful around those beetles! If they are "stink bug" beetles, they CAN shoot nasty, stinging stuff on your nose if you tick them off!!! I KNOW! When I was a pup, I was trying to play with one and it SHOT ME! Grammy had to wash off my nose, but it burned it and it was sore for several days! Grammy said she'd seen those beetles around for all her (terribly long) life, and never knew they did that until it happened and she looked it up! Mercy from Country Corgis

That's not a bug to mess with, it's a bombardier beetle - it'll shoot acid out of its behind when irritated. Chiweenie got lucky!
