Come Out Of Your Shell


Hello stuffie friends.  This is Green Sea Turtle.  Like many other stuffies, I have seen numerous warnings about interacting with Dennis the Vizsla; but I never thought those warnings applied to me.  After all, I have had a long history of positive interactions with dogs, as seen in these photos from the year 2004, when I was playing with my good friends Trixie and Tucker.


Dogs are my friends.


Thank you for scratching my back, Tucker.


You must be Trixie. Tucker told me all about you.


Why thank you I would love a tummy rub.

As you can see, I was so new in those days that I still had a sticker on my back saying where my squeaker was. Ah, good times. Even as horror stories began to emerge about the marauding Dennis the Vizsla, I thought I would be invulnerable to his stuffie-slaughtering ways because of my protective carapace.  Unfortunately, I was wrong; because after a particularly frustrating day attempting to find the nonexistent bacon dimension, Dennis came to me and told me that I needed to make some changes in my life.

Now, you may be thinking that Dennis was trying to tell me to be more extroverted, less of a wallflower.  But you are wrong.

Terribly, terribly wrong.

So remember, stuffie friends …

… if it seems like Dennis is trying to help you …

… it just means that you are next on his list of stuffies to dismember.

Thank you and good day.

    Um, wow. Dennis. You and Abby should get together; Abby has dismembered MANY a stuffie that made it through my puppy years. You two could probably tear (heh – get it? tear? yeah, um, that’s what passes for humor here) through our entire toy box in about an hour!

  2. Ha Ha the stuffie defence league. Wow a young Tucker, looking good Tucker TMBTDVD. Hey Dennis & Tucker, guess what??? We have a new bloke at work & he has got a VIZSLA!!! I showed him your blog & he thought it was great


  3. Well, I think that Dennis WAS trying to help you out Green Sea Turtle. You most obviously needed a stuffie-ectomy. When stuffies get to be your age, sometimes they need this most delicate life-saving procedure. Luckily, you are in the paws of an expert!

    Wiggles & Wags,

    Its hard to type with tears in your eyes, weeping over a poor defenseless stuffie who just wanted to live and be able to comfort others. His life isn’t over, just pack him and his parts up in a little box and send them to me,and I will do corrective surgery. Fortunately Stella doesn’t chew up stuffies, so she still has every one she has been given. Turtle is safe here.

    Dennis, I am shocked at your behavior!
