A new stuffy playmate.

Before I begin, let me say that yesterday I was present at the Blessing of the Animals celebrating the Feast of Saint Francis. And I was actually blessed, along with my sissy, Asta, and a gazillion other dogs, some cats, at least one bird, a giant rabbit and two ferrets. Here I am waiting for my blessing. (My mom’s camera isn’t nearly as good as Asta’s mom’s camera, so I refer you to Asta’s blog to check out the fabulous event.)

And now for a few words on welcoming stuffies.

My mom left a new little friend on the kitchen counter. I’m sure she meant to give it to me, but evidently she forgot. It’s obvious from the look of her that this nice looking chx wants to meet me.

Step 1. Look nonchalant and say hello.
Hello! I say, helloooo! Or as Tanner would say, Wassssuuuup!

Step 2. Convince your new playmate that it’s perfectly safe to come on down and play. It may take a bit of smooth talking, but gradually you will instill confidence.

Step 3. Play hard1 Have fun! Life is short. (Not to worry. I have a sissy who is an expert at suwgewy.)



  1. I saw woo with Asta!

    Woo were surely amongst some furry special furiends!

    That bunny was HUGE!

    Your new pal looks to be khwite a khlukhker!


  2. Hi, Duffy!
    Sure you had a blessing day! I saw Asta's post too!
    Life is short?? I think you are soooo right!
    You have a good technique! I am going to try it!
    Kisses and hugs

  3. You are good at playing with stuffies. Mommy won't let me have stuffed stuffies anymore. Instead, I get unstuffed stuffies.

  4. Good job with the stuffy capture. I could learn a lot from you. I did see you on Astas blog and that was a nice thing to do.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  5. My sissies are experts when it comes to stuccoed but any tips are always appreciated. The blessing looks awesome. We'll go check out Asta's blog.

    We like your style!

  14. Hmmmm. It seems that you moved from chickens to ... HORSES? That's okay. It's important to keep the reconstructive surgeons in business. If you had fun ... keep at it! Then you can teach us someday. (Or at least teach Fergs.)

    Love and thanks,
    Jake and Fergi xxoo
