How will Ernie CHEWS a Winner???

Have you gotten yourself set up to FOLLOW... Sarge's Blogville Community CALENDAR yet??? I suggest you do it... so you don't get left out of any of the fun.. CLICK HERE to go There. hehehe... I made a Frankie Funny fur you...
Now as you well remember... I USED to be really SCARED to ride in ANY Vehicle... THEN about 3 months ago... I think beclaws of my THUNDER SHIRT... I suddenly LIKED it. BUTT, I have ALWAYS ridden in the Front SEAT.. On either Mom or Dad's lap... whoever was NOT Driving..... OK that was FINE fur ME... beclaws they always held me tight and saw to it that I would be as safe as Pawsible. there... BUTT we all three KNEW that it was NOT the very Safest way fur me to be ridin. WELL, when I got my PUPPY.. ERNIE.. I told mom and dad that we needed to talk about keepin him totally safe... SO I had them take US to MY Store and we got these WONDERFUL thingys... SPECIAL HARNESSES that go right onto the BACK SEAT SEAT BELTS and hold us safely in place!!!! THIS is a picture of ME in MY harness. And THIS is Ernie in HIS... the thingys give us PLENTY of room to move around and get comfy butt not so much that we would fall off the seat. The CAR HARNESSES are so comfortable (BECLAWS they are All PADDED with White Soft Stuffs) that if we WANTED to.. we could even use them on our Walkin Strings.....butt we really like to take them off and put on our special just fur walkin harnesses when we stop places to ... check fur PeeMail and stuffs. Ernie LOVES His CAR HARNESS and I really Like MINE too.
See... we can look at each other and TOUCH each other and lay side by side if we want to. AND we can look between the FRONT seats to make sure Mom and Dad are drivin SAFE and not being LOST or stuffs like that.
Since it is workin out so grrrreat EVERYBUDDY is HAPPY.
And this is the pan with all of our Car Stuffs... Like our Walkin Strings and our Walkin Harnesses and our Poops bags and our waters bowl and an emergency supply of Foods. The only problem is that when we picked our spots... I called SHOTGUN and gave Ernie the Little Middle... butt if he gets into our get out of the car stuffs again and chews on MY Walkin String.. again... He is gonna have to be moved to Shotgun Spot... and I think he NEEDS to be in the LITTLE MIDDLE spot. I'm just sayin..
AND Speakin of Ernie... and doin a CHEWS thingy.... I decided to let Ernie CHEWS who the Duck Tape Uses Winner will be.... BUTT as you all know... Ernie doesn't know how to READ and stuffs.. so he couldn't do it by Pickin NAMES... SOOOOOOOO I had to do some HARD thinkin on how he COULD CHEWS... AND this is what I came up with... I gave all of you who sent in Pictures or did a special Post on USES fur Duck tape.... a representative... fur Ernie to Chews.
Here is how it will work:
Benny & Lily will be REPRESENTED BY the red TENNIS BALL
Sarge ... the ROPE TOY
Sugar ... the Yellow Giraffe
Kendra,Bella, & Daisy... the GREEN SQUEAKY BALL
Bert... the GARFIELD TOY
Bouncing Bertie... the TOY THAT SARGE GAVE TO ERNIE
George the Lad... the UNSTUFFIE CHIPMUNK
Mollie Jo... the UNSTUFFIE SKUNK
I will put them all out and then let Ernie CHEWS A TOY... and the winner will be the one REPRESENTED by the toy that Ernie CHEWSES!!! SEE... he can DO it EVEN THOUGH he CAN'T all of Us can...
This plan has been approved by the Road Dogs ... butt it is NOT the way they will be chewsin the Winner fur the ARTSY FARTSY pawt of Duck Tape week... THEY will have a MUCH EASIER method... butt that is beclaws THEY can ALL READ and stuffs... OK..
AND the Road Dogs and Ernie and I will all be announcing our winners on our own posts on MONDAY 14th... and .... TA DA TA DA.... the Road Dogs will be tellin what the Winning Prize Pressies will be on MONDAY 14th. also. It is somethingy GRRRRRREAT fur BOTH the Artsy FARTSy and the Uses thingys. I'm just sayin.
I am gonna leave you with one more picture of US in our CAR Harnesses.... Did I tell you that riding in the car makes Ernie fall RIGHT to Sleep??? Sometimes before we even get down the drive and beyond the mailbox... BaaaaWaaaah...
This picture of him was taken even before mom got Inside Jennifer... and look... he can hardly keep his eyes open.. BOL BOL

PeeS.... Re: Cheese Fur Pees.... It DOES seem to be working... QUITE well. Last night Ernie went running to the Kitchen door and was dancin around. My mom asked him if he had to PEE and he FLEW to her and then back to the Door.. She took him Out and he Did do BOTH Jobs.. and then an hour Later.. he did the same thingy... mom asked Again and Out they went... with DOUBLE SUCCESS once more. Those were the FURST times that he has EVER ASKED to go out!!! WHEEEEEEEE.... Ernie has not done ANYTHINGY in his BED for AGES now... and he has not had to get mom up in the night for the last 4 nights. He has HELD IT from 10:00 PM until 7:45 AM... THAT's my boy!!

Hey Frankie!
Wow, wow, wow you guys look so great in your carnesses! What a great way to be safe and be sure that you get to go for lots of rides. That's imporant because lots of fun things happen at the end of a car ride (except for the dogtor). I can't wait to see who wins the drawings and I like your creative way to let Ernie be involved. Congrats on his continued pee success!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Bouncing Bertie said...

That is so impressive Ernie, being all grown up and asking to go out and then doing BOTH jobs. Frankie, have you thought of patenting marketing the 'Cheese for Pees' plan? I sense a great 'business' opportunity!

Oh and Ernie, I would like to point out that the TOY THAT SARGE GAVE TO ERNIE is obviously by far the most chewable of the toys on display....

Toodle pip!

Finn said...

That is a really great idea on how to choose a winner! And the safety in the back seat - so wonderful! You are such a great big brother!!

Anonymous said...

First, Frankie that is a very unique and fun way for Ernie to pick a winner! :)
And those seat belt/harness thingys your pawrents got to keep you safe are terrific! I ride on the car floor. Yap that's where I feel safest. Butt I wonder if I had a harness thingy like you have if I would feel safe on the seat too? Hmmmm...will contemplate this more :)

And...CONGRATS Ernie for learning how to ask to go out so you can take care of your business! Yay! Great coaching job there bro Frankie! :D

Waggin at ya,

Oskar said...

Frankie, you are training Ernie very well and you are a fantastic owner to make sure he's all safe & stuff.

I bet he feels extra special getting to choose a winner!

Nubbin wiggles,

Hee hee I made my own funnie.

HI Frankie and Ernie,
Boy Frankie you have a cute little brother there, we don't think we had seen him before. We knew you had a little bro but we don't remember seeing a picture of him!!
Love the idea of introducing the new-bees. We will TRY to be here tomorrow.
xx, Zoie & Fern

Ernie IS a clever boy!

You both look so safe and comfortable in your new safety harnesses. We're glad that you, Frankie, were able to be such a good example.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Kari in Vegas said...

you two look super cute in your harnesses!

Stop on by for a visit!

houndstooth said...

You guys look really safe in your harnesses! Morgan has one that she wears, but Dad hasn't ordered them for Blueberry and me yet.


Bocci said...

You two look safe and comfortable and happy-a great combination for a car ride!

Did you have fun at the Pumpkin Festival?

Sagira said...

So happy to hear that riding in the car isn't so scary. So maybe you and Ernie can ride in the car to Columbus for the Pet Expo again. It will be here again before you know it. :)

Maggie Mae said...


I think it is very smart of you to make sure dat your Ernie (and you) is buckled up in da car. I always ride in da back seat in my harness. Max doesn't have his own harness yet but him will very soon. :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Wow! We get behind on things, and look what we miss - we didn't even know you had your own puppy! (Blame Mom and her job - it's like she's going to medical school with all these books and papers and things with words that sounds like foreign languages but apparently really aren't - and she keeps reading them and making notes - and NOT helping us catch up with our friends....) Love your car harnesses - we have those same ones - except a little bigger. And we don't get fancy beds in the car - we just get towels... *sigh*

Nice work on teaching Ernie how to let your Mom know he needs to do his business! You're an excellent older brother!

Cheese for peas is the best ever...Mumsie's housebusted a bunch of us that way!!!

You looked adorable in those car harnesses!!

road-dog-tales said...

haha Bet Ernie's gonna be asking to go out a LOT more with all that CHEESE - just sayin' . . .
Hey, how about a LID for the dog gear box? One that will KEEP Ernie out so you can still ride shotgun?

PeeS - We had a small change of plans regarding REVEALING the identity of the PRIZES - see our email :)

Jazzi said...

You both look great in your harnesses. Pretty Snazzi.
Sounds like a great way to choose to me. Ernie will enjoy doing it too.

Great looking Harnesses! You boys are so handsome! :D

Oooh, great way to choose as well, lucky Ernie! :D

I also fall asleeps right away in the car.. hehe..

sprinkles said...

Congrats on getting Ernie housetrained! My boys almost never ask to go out but when I ask if they want to go, they get very excited!

You know, I've been thinking about getting one of those harnesses for the car. Shiver insists on sitting on my lap while I'm driving and that's not safe for either one of us.

Your guys are really cool! Frankie that was an awesome post woof!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Yay, Ernie! You're growing up so fast. Holding your pee for almost 10 hours is very grown up!

Maybe your mom could put a lid on your Jennifer travel box, to protect your stuff from when Ernie gets bored or feels that teething urge he just can't ignore.
