Three quick updates...

1.) Mommy doesn't need foot surgery!!! She's walking again, albeit with a crazy looking brace on her ankle and some ugly shoes (I think that hurts her the most). She starts PT today - twice a week for six weeks. And she has PETEY the rest of the time! Yipee!!! 

2.) Betty's Mom was so sad without a terrier in her life that she's adopted a 4-month old Jack Russell named BIANCA! I can't wait to meet her and you can be sure I'll post photos of her immediately. Betty was like a big sis to me and now I can be little Bianca's big brother. (But if she's anything like Betty, she'll be bossing me around in no time.)

3.) So far, I've lined up two dates with potential girlfriends. The first is with Asta Marie. Although she herself hasn't shown any interest in me, her son Dewey Dewster seems eager for a new step-dad. He also "wants to get her out of the house so there are more balls for me." That makes me a tad nervous. Not sure I want to have to split my tennis ball collection should there be a divorce later on. (And she HAS had two husbands already...)

Besides tennis balls, Asta Marie likes to spend time cooling off in plastic bowls.
I've been known to do the same. So we have that in common.

She is a wee bit older than me. And there are children involved...

My other date is with the lovely Aire pup Gaia. She's not even a year old and has a new brother on the way. That could mean late night wee-wee pad changing and puppy food breath. She does make enthusiastic faces while eating treats....

As do I...

Now, there was some discussion about the age difference, not to mention the height disparities. I told her we could be like the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes of the canine world. Just without the Scientology (or aliens) but WITH jumping on the couch for joy!

I'm going to keep checking my blog for more applicants. Man, I'm gonna rack up a whole lotta miles on Aire Ruby this month!

Petey, I'm so wagging please for you!! 2 dates in a couple of days !!! Woo Hoo!! Asta is a cutie for sure but for some reason Dewy wants to cut the apron strings. Needs investigation. Think he might wants to do a straight swap with you for a certain large ball?Hmmmmm. And Gaia looks a pretty puppy!! But I see you have broken a hammies certain um doggie would break mine if there is no hope for me...

I'm so wagging Betty's Mom has Bianca. Pawfect. Send her wags of happiness.

You pal, Eric

Hey Pal,

We read about your planned dates on Jackson's blog and now have confirmed it here. We've been trying for eons to find a sweet (actually two sweet) girlies to love us -- but so far we just have each other.

Do you think a Brit accent would help? Or what about le French?

Let us know how you do!!!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Wow Petey, you're a fast mover! 2 dates already? As for dating tips, I agree that the British accent does have a certain je ne sais quoi. Try barking "the rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain" in a posh voice. Or "how now brown cow". And whilst the name Petey is cute, it won't fit in with your new image, so ditch it in favour of Peter. Much more sophisticated.
Glad to hear your mum doesn't need surgery. Very glad to read that Betty's mum has found a new pup! J x

Stanislaw said...

Have you considered speed dating? Lots of ladies, so little time... You're a busy man after all.

Gaia the Airedale said...

Petey momma says she trusts me to have no curfew or chaperone! Woo hehe and you can pick me up at 5:45 for dinner since thats when I usually eat. Im so excited! Do you think the pawperatzzi will be about??

puppy breath,

Daisy said...

Woohoo! I am glad you already have some dates lined up, Petey!

Asta said...

I'm counting on you to be a pawfect gentlepup wif these wepootation is on the line
smoochie kisses
pee ess..I can't wait to meet Bianca!

Moco said...

I am probably twice your age, but the older female younger male thing seems to be in vogue now. I would so enjoy someone who liked to run, play and do bitey face with me. We could chase stuffies and shake them until their insides fall out. I think we could be great friends on greater adventures.


Woof Petey

Good luck with the dating game, but be careful. You wouldn't want some kind of fatal attraction thing going on.
Desert Pups here just roaming the neighborhood and meeting the pups cause we're new in town.

Gaia is adorable! The things I miss when traveling. I didn't know you were on the market. Had I known, I definitely would have responded to your ad.

Hi, Petey -

That is great news that your Mom does not need surgery. Mama used to work in a physical therapy office so she knows some of the routine that patients have to go through.

That is also great news that Betty's mom found a new pup to love. We hope that the two of them have many happy years together.

Do you think if your two dates don't work out that you would like to see us? I (Hershey) am not the ball player but Kaci is. If that doesn't work maybe we should look up Jake and Just Harry.

Have a good weekend.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Snowball said...

Hi Petey, I hope your date goes well. What will you be basing on to guage who will be the perfect lady for you?

The thing about having to split Tennis balls when there is any divorce involved. you just need to put the ownership of the tennis balls to be under your mum's name but of course your mum allow you to play with them but your future wife has not claims over them if you guys ever need to split but of course I am sure it will not happen.

Good Luck.



Lorenza said...

Hi, Petey!
I am so happy to know that your mom does not need surgery!
I want to meet Bianca too! Sure she is making happy Betty's mom!
I wish you the best with your 2 dates! They are beautiful!
Kisses and hugs

He made reference to the fact that I looked like Templeton the Rat after his mom stripped my ears, but I still have my curly topknot.


Now Petey...of course I'll go out with ya. Actually, I don't remember you askin' me out before.


Now I do have lotsa boyfriends...and I um just suggested that Gaia's new brother and I go out...BUT she said he WAS TOO YOUNG FOR ME.

(Lacie runs to mirror and looks anxiously for wrinkles...)

OK...I know what we could do....could we have a date on top of the Empire State Building? Let me know!

Love and kissies...

Tell Gaia I'm not movin' in on her terriertory...kay????

Deanna said...

Oh that crazy treat face is so cute!

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh Petey, don't compare yourself with Tom Cruise...he's odd..very odd.
Good luck with finding the right girl matie. It's tough but I reckon the right one will come along soon.

Hugs and tail wags

Agatha and Archie said...

Hooray for your Mom!! No sugery! Now tell her to do all the excercises that they tell her to do at home as that will help...Love and kisses A+A

Joe Stains said...

oh boy, Asta Marie is sort of like Liz Taylor, look out. I think you have two good dates that will really keep you on your toes!

Maya and Kena said...

Hi Petey,
We're glad to hear that your mommy won't be needing foot surgery!
That's great that you've found some dates already... we have a feeling that there's a couple of pups who might be interested. *wink *wink
Have a great day!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena
