I'm revealing a HUGE secret....

Well, it's true confessions time, my friends. I'm no good at keeping secrets and this one has been bubbling up inside of me for weeks now!

Remember a few weeks ago when Rosie-Posie and I went to Bermuda for a romantic weekend? And wise-ish Auntie Bailey tagged along as our chaperone? Oh! And Lacie and Butchy just happened to be vacationing on Bermuda that same weekend. Then we ran into Wimsey, outta the blue???

Well...it was no coincidence!

You see...Rosie and I went to Bermuda to elope! We got married that weekend!!!

Sure, Auntie Bailey was along...she was our wedding coordinator. And look at the wonderful job she did, even having roses for Rosie for the ceremony. You can see her in the front row with her beautiful hat. 

Wimsey was the official and added an air of dignity to the occasion. (Yes, he and Auntie Bailey did disappear for quite a while on his moped!)

Butchy came along to serve as my Best Man. Even though I'm a British breed, I was born in the United States, so we needed to make sure all our paperwork was in order. That's why Butchy has his briefcase with him during the ceremony! He took his role very seriously. 

And Lacie? Well, Lacie provided the entertainment... and in fine fashion! (Can you believe that Lacie kept our secret all these weeks? I'm so proud of her!)

We'd sworn to secrecy - I didn't even tell my bestest friend Eric Square Dog for fear he'd get nervous and stutter it out under pressure. Not even my friend and neighbor Asta sniffed it out of me!

...But that's not even the BIG NEWS!




...We've started a family!!! I'm just proud as punch of our new brood and Rosie Posie is a SENSATIONAL mother! Aren't the puppies just the spitting (and biting and chewing) image of their proud parents?

And then there's this little fella who got the best of both our characteristics! He can smell a rat from 50 paces, howls like Poochini, and started destroying tennis balls before he was paper-trained. He's a Ceaglairn Terragle. Probably will bump the Puggle and the Labradoodle off the designer dog lists....

Pretty crazy news, huh? But wait, there's more......




APRIL FOOLS!!!! WAAHAHAHAHAHAA!!! Did we get you? Did you believe a word of it???
HAHAHAHAHA!!! C'mon, I mean, I love my Rosie-Posie to pieces but do you think we'd really get married on OUR FIRST DATE?!?! And have a mess of puppies a month later? HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Although Auntie Bailey REALLY did disappear for hours and hours with Wimsey. That part is absolutely true.

Happy April Fool's Day everybloggie! Hope we GOTCHA!

Happy April Fool's Day, knowing you I was expecting a prank!!!!
You dont get to be this old and this wise till your get the long ears!!
Will pop over to see Joe Stains although wondered if that was the April Fool.
Cool pictures! Bailey has already explained to the world why she went missing with Wimsey - a hound always fools their nose before their heart you know.
From your favourite aunties xxxx
ps you always were the joker, remember that time when........Oh the stories we could tell .....

Martha said...

Really need to use Preview - a hound follows their nose although perhaps fool would do given the date!

Oh my God, Petey - you cheeky fellow!! You had me totally fooled!! I was reading and thinking, "Oh my God, Oh my God..." (especially when I got to the bit about the strange little puppy...) and then I realised that the joke was on me! Ha! Ha!

Well, I'm glad that you and Rosie are taking it slowly...!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

You got me, Petey!!!!
I love secret, your post title attracted me, oh, why I'm so that naive?
Look what my brothers Ximui and Chubs rolled on the floor laughing at me.
But I did enjoy your eloping story very much, kind of romantic comedy movie that I love.

Dughallmor Beagles said...

OOoh, that little minx even kept it from us!! Well, the eloping bit anyway....we'd have noticed a belly full of pups! She's laughing her butt off as we pick our jaws off the floor and Snoop cleans up after himself!
Mother was going to do an April Fool post but is as disorganised as ever....and it couldn't have beaten this anyway, you naughty boy :D

Petey, ya got me! I bought it hook, line, and sinker, until I got to the part about the kids... But it was such a nice wedding - Rosie looked so beautiful, Aunt Bailey's hat was so tasteful, and I love that picture of sweet little Lacie!

See ya!

Gus said...

Petey...we believed it til the puppy part. Then I started counting on my toes and figuring out it just couldn't happen. But it was funny, and very well done. And muzzer says if you and rosie ever do have puppies, she wants the clairn Teagle.

Eric said...

Ha ha Petey!! I sniffed out that April fool right away - didn't believe a word of it but I didn't think you were going to tell at the end it was an April Fool!! You funny old fool!!!.

BUT if you don't have me for your best man when you eventually get married...well ..I think I might howl and cry.In a dogly way of course.

Wiry wags, Eric xxxxx

Oh! You got me! But Dexter said he wasn't fooled for a minute because he knows it takes 60 days to make puppies. Whatever. I didn't like the looks of the terri-eagle anyway.
