Brain Drain


Hello, stuffie friends. This is Round Duck.

I was recently awarded to Dennis for racing in a flyball competition. Immediately upon arriving, I began to hear horror stories from the other stuffies about their treatment at Dennis’s paws, but I was sure that, being a prize for his athletic performance, I would receive more respect. Unfortunately I was quite wrong.

Not long after arriving in Dennis’s household, he began asking me if I suffered from headaches. I kept assuring him that I didn’t, yet he persisted in asking the question, eventually going so far as to suggest that I might suffer from unrelieved cranial pressure. Despite my protests that my stuffing levels were just right, he declared that I was in dire need of a procedure that he referred to as “trespassing.”

Only later did I find out that what he really meant was “trepanning”.

During this so-called “emergency Gumby-ectomy procedure”, Dennis pulled out my honker tube through the hole he made, in order to, as he put it, “let out all the little bits of it”. He did not say what “it” was, but presumably he meant my stuffing.

Yet this is nonsensical, because my honker tube is self-contained and does not provide an exit route for stuffing, or for anything else, except honker air and, in Dennis’s feverish imagination, ghosts.

So now I am left with a plastic tube extruding most embarrassingly from my head, and must suffer the mockery of all the other stuffies who make a point of coming up to me to say, “I told you so!”

Do not let this happen to you! Remember, stories of evil spirits that live inside your head are just that, stories!

And if someone comes at you with a “melon baller” that looks more like a hole saw, run away! The cranium you save may be your own. Thank you and good day.

  1. Hey Stuffie! You are not very smart. I totally knew that if you see a vizsla with a sharp implement that you should run away immediately. I sure hope your pals read this. Any stuffie seeking refuge is welcome at my estate. No beheadings here.



  2. Hey Round Ducky… Don’t listen to Mango… It’s a trap. You come to MY house.. I don’t do the head thingy. I’m an arm and leg man myself. I’m just sayin’.

  4. Round Duck, you are lucky that is all that happened to you. If you had been here, you might have lost your webbed feet as well. Dennis is just trying to let out all of that evil from inside.

  5. You totally got off easy duckie! You see here at the moose lodge this state you are in is considered terminal so I am often forced to put stuffies with extruded honker tubes such as you have, out of their misery and send them to a quieter place. It is tragic but all part of the circle of life!


  6. Oh my. Didn’t know there was such an organization. Hmmm. Better have mom call my lawyer, something tells me they won;t appreciate all the eyeball consumption I’ve accomplished in the last year…

  7. Wow. Um. I can safely say that stuffies here are provided a quick de-stuffing, and aren’t left disfigured (well, unless Mom is able to perform emergency surgery, and then they just look like Frankenstein’s monster wannabe’s!). I’m just saying…

    *kissey face*

    PeeEss: Hey Dennis – that’s a pretty cool award for flyball; Mom and Dad don’t get anything near as cool as that when they do their car agilities thingy…


  8. dennis, does blue smoke fill your home regularly? someone should lay off the pot pipe man! better yet, disregard this comment, whatever is responsible for that wild freaky imagination of yours…keep doin’ it! that first pic was a riot.


  9. Ha Ha this post really cracked me up!!! Doctor Dennis you did a good job regardless of what Round Duck says. I have the utmost faith in your surgical skills. After all, Flat Tony survived, did he not???
