Until there's a cure....

Around the time of Mango Minster, I started noticing a lot of my pals were wearing blue rubber bracelets around their paws...

Butchy had his on with his camo...

Archie wore his around the clock, even when he was sleeping (which is a lot of the time...is he sleeping or did he faint again?)...

Dewey had a bracelet, too. So for awhile, I thought it might just be a Wire Fox Terrier solidarity kind of thing....

Until I noticed that the King of Gooberstan wore one, too... At royal events and just lounging around the castle...

So maybe it was a United States phenomenon...Then Noah showed up wearing one with his jaunty Australia hat...

Okay, it must be a symbol for international terriers...but then both Pee Wee Dexter and the Relentlessly Huge Mango were spotted wearing their bracelets. Obviously, they came in a range of sizes...

And it wasn't just limited to dogs, either. That international cat of mystery, the suave Italian Opus was sporting a bracelet with his Pawda suit in the fall of 2008...

Heck! Even a FROG was spotted wearing the ubiquitous blue bracelet...what did it all mean?

Then one day, a blue bracelet arrived for me. I put it on immediately. It was waterproof, sandproof, and looked great with all my clothes...

Here's a closer look at it.

Tanner, your bracelet should be arriving shortly....

It is a badge of courage worn by dozens—nay, thousands—of hapless fellows around the world... a brotherhood who can proudly claim that they went out with Lacie and lived to tell about it!

On one side, the bracelet defines you as a:
And on the other side, well, it speaks for itself!
I am sure there are dozens, nay, thousands of members of this not-too-exclusive brotherhood that I was unable to mention in this post. (After all, there is a limit to how long a post can be.) So if I have missed you, please feel free to pick up a bracelet here and wear it with honor. 

The not-so-few, the scarred (and sometimes the scared), the proud...the men who've dared to date Lacie!

Oh Petey Mate,

Can't tell you how much that post made us laugh.. (well technically Mum snorted hot milk out all over the laptop but I'm guessing that was a result of mirth!)
You brave brave dude, all of you brave dudes deserve so much more than a bracelet.. like a medal or something? Free therapy for life??

I have escaped the attention of Lacie thus far, the more I read the more I come to the conclusion this is a definate advantage!

love and tailwags,

Ben xxx

Peees.. Dad makes Yorkshire Puds most Sundays, unless we are off with the trail bikes.. if only they would survive shipping!

Martha Basset said...

Oh Petey

You are a cheeky cheeky boy. We had to read some of your post again just to make sure - especially the bit where the blue band was round the clock!!! Thank goodness for the letter 'l' is all we can say!!
Please let us know if Lacie every speaks to you again!

love and kisses
Aunt Bailey & Miss Martha xxx

Maggie and Mitch said...

OMG, Petey! We thought this post was going somewhere else entirely! You totally cracked us up!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mango said...

Oh yeah, those are badges of courage for sure. I'm glad I earned it, but wouldn't want to have to go through that ordeal again. Fortunately, the beast has a short attention span. Plus there are always new DWB guys to throw at her jaws, um, I mean, feet.

Slobbers,
Mango

Stella said...

Aw, Petey!

You totally had me thinking you were raising awareness for some cause, until I read the bracelet on Stanley's leg. You know, he never went out with Lacie. He was already dating Asta pretty steady by the time Lacie came on the scene. Why do you suppose he has a bracelet?

You know, you may be needing to find a furvivor protection program to join. Then again, this may not even register with Lacie Girl! She's always so busy.

Goobery love & tiny kissies,
Stella Bean Latifah

Gee Officer Krupke:

Like inside, the worst of us is good!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Ahhhhhhhhhh Petey...on my barkday too...did ya HAVE to irritate Lacie today??? She was plannin' on making my cake...now heaven only knows if it's gonna be edible...

You TOTALLY CRACK US UP!!!!!!

She ran right over to Ben the Rottis and asked him out...it's gonna be a very long week/month....

Barkin' at ya Petey boy!!

Scruffman...

Stan and I need Survivin' Lac as a Fursissie armbands....

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

BTW Petey...did you have to throw Gooberstan in my face?

HE REFUSED TO DATE ME.

So I turned him (very early in our blog...I was only 7 months old) into a Wire Fox Stuffie stuck in an extended down stay...

To say Asta and Ruby were irritated is an understatement...it's the only time my BFF ever screamed at me.

I've left the big goob alone since then...

Still mad,

Lacie

What's the expression...

DON'T GET MAD, GET EVEN?

Ruby Bleu said...

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! I can't wait to hear what Lacie has to say about this!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Ruby Bleu said...

OK, wait, i just read. Petey, if you need a quick escape, Aire Ruby is at your disposal!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Deetz said...

Sparky said...

Petey!

As I was reading through your post, I was wondering what the bracelet said... And when I finally got to read it, I must say I laughed out loud... But now I'm also kind of scared... I've never dated Lacie yet, but do you think I could survive if I did?

Eric said...

Joe Stains said...

omdog, Tanner is shaking in his boots just HOPING beyond hope that Lacie forgot about him. He better be laying WAY low if he expects that to happen.

These bracelets are a true sign of solidarity for you survivors. I mean, furvivors.

Nigel is asking for her IM id...

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petey!
Now I want to know what she thinks about this!
Haaaaaaaaaa!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Koobuss said...

Wow! I really don't know what to say. Lacie is very pleasant around me. Of course, I am dating her brother, Scruffy, and I think that she's glad that i get him off her paws for a while.

Way to go, Petey. Be brave, my friend.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie
