LOOK at what WE did....

We believe today is Arty's Gotcha Day.....     Enjoy your special day buddy.


NOW then.....   right before we went on Vacation....  we saw a field MOUSE... run into our garden... and WE went after it ....   with a VENGENCE...     It Ran into the Concrete (cinder block) Block that helps to hold the FENCE that the tomatoes WERE growing up....

FRANKIE   HURRY it is getting away....   are you gonna help me or NOT?

 It's OKAY mom....  we are all over this...     don't worry...  put your feets up and have another cup of coffee... and watch some PAWFESSIONALS  at work.
 I think I will start digging HERE and tunnel UNDER the Concrete Block...
 BUTT .... wait...   We confess.... LOOK at what we did while we were working on our Plan...   We Pulled out 4 WHOLE Tomato Vines... and Scattered RIPE and Green Tomatoes... EVERYWHERE...     YES we did do that...   we DESTROYED 4 tomato vines...   Butt that is the PRICE of Pawgress.  
                   THAT's OUR story and We are sticking with it.
 OKAY FRANKIE....  I'll haul this big long VINE outta your way... You just keep Digging.
 That is Grrrreat Ernie...   OMD...  Look at this ROOT thingy...   I'm gonna have to YANK it out... so I can dig more...   you can haul this off Too, Ernie.
 UGH.... this thingy is DEEP...   Guess dad put a LOT of Epsom Salt in fur it...  Wow the root MAY go clear to CHINA...        Ugh   TUG   Pull   UGH
 HEY ERNIE....   help me Yank this out...  
WHAT????????    What's that you say, Ernie???            OH     Squirrel Butt Fart....    Ernie just said he saw the Field Mouse Take off fur Pawts Unknown.        

Ummmmmmmm    MOM?        Could you PLEASE not mention this to Ol' Sure Shot... ????

guess your mom will be making lots of salsa and fried green tomatoes :)

Emma said...

I guess the vermin was a smart one! We almost caught a wabbit in the yard last night. Bailie and I were running and yelping like mad dogs. Maybe we will get it tonight?

Chef Sasha said...

Nice job you guys, you really tried hard. I am sorry the little trouble maker got away, but I bet you scared him plenty. He won't be back. I hope you don't end up having to go to your room with no snack over this.

Love Sasha

Amber DaWeenie said...

All dat work fur just a field mouse??? What would you guys do fur a tree rat?

Oz theTerrier said...

Oh dear dawg...that field mouse surely got you two riled up (as it should). I would've helped you dig to China just to get a chance for my teethers to wrap around him and give him a terrier shakedown! But what to do about those tomato vines?!? That is a bit of a shame that the field mouse MADE you take out 4 vines. Did you eat any of the ripe tomatoes?

easyweimaraner said...

dinz1234 said...

Oh lads what have you done..mum must be well pleased with you...not....oh well security coms first I suppose..better get the sauce bottle ready ;) hugs and loves Fozziemum xx

Casey said...

Um... you were just... uh... aerating the roots. Right??

C.L.W.STEP said...

The Miscellaneous Mousie Mob is quite a collection of cowards. They'll sneak out of a crime scene any way they can!
Good job, though, fellows. If that was Joey dog and me, I would have done the digging, while Joey ate all the tomatoes to hide the evidence.

Two French Bulldogs said...

Between the two of you, that mouse is as good as dead. Just like the tomato plants!!

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oops. Humans like their tomatoes. We hope ol sureshot doesn't find out and ... Naw, he wouldn't.

Miley's Daily Scoop said...

Ohhhhh dear. If that was us, mom would have come running out like a ninja! Maybe you could blame it all on the field mouse?1!! BOL!

You had a great adventure and hope your mom had some super fried green tomatoes for dinner.

hugs, Bugsy and Knuckles

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Well, we've heard that while you're away the mice will play.....

Great job, though, bet that mouse is in Timbuktu by now!

Guess your mom will be canning some tomatoes for the next few days.

Mitch and Molly said...

You saved your family from mousie cooties by destroying the vines that could make them sick! We're sure you'll be getting extra treats for this, Frankie and Ernie!

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Murphy said...

Those vines were in YOUR working space! Glad you boys are back. We were lonely without you!

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Braeden and Seth said...

Oh No! We would be in trouble for certain! But...it's fall and those tomatoes would not have lasted much longer. We know you were just helping!

Waggies,
Braeden, Seth and puppy Riley

Pees. Was it wearing a snow freak costume?

Sweet William The Scot said...

Why look at all those wonderful green tomatoes. This time of year Lee love to have fried green tomatoes. If it had been early summer and you did that I bet you would have gotten a serious finger in your face talking to.
Thanks for being a friend

Millie and Walter said...

Good thing the growing season is almost over so you won't get in too much trouble for messing up those tomatoes.

Alien said...

Did someone say Salsa? I'll bring the chips and cervesa.

Yours,

Whitley Westie said...

Susie and Sidebite said...

We didn't see anything wrong here at all, but the Momster is drooling over all those tomatoes that she would love to have on her counter to ripen:)

How could your pawrents ever grow such a wonderful garden without you guys taking care of things like this?? You deserve a medal or an 87 dollar reward
for putting in such hard work!

Your pal,
Stella

Ruby said...

OMD!!!! A mousie??!!! Oh how fun!!!! Looks like you guys would have gotten it if those darn tomatoes weren't in your way!! I would have come overs and eaten them for you, so you could have had a straight shot at that intruder!
Ma stopped me from gettin' a rat that has been comin' in my yardie at night, she said that she didn't want to clean up my 'mess' at 3 in the mornin'....whatevers. Peeps have no sense of priorities!!!
Anyhu, better luck next time guys!
Kisses,

Pawrents need to start understaning: no pain...no gain!

Mayzie said...

Well, field mice are tricky little beasties. They're even MORE tricky than evil tree rats. So it's not YOUR fault that it got away. Plus, it wasn't all a waste. I mean, you helped your mom clean up her garden. That's worth lots of treats, if you ask me.

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

Sweet William The Scot said...

Lee and I went to the Farmer's Market and got green tomatoes to fry for dinner. Your post made us have a craving.

Mice are quick and speedy. Plus tomatoes are delicious. I think less chasing, more eating.....

Love and licks,

Foley Monster and Pocket said...

Oh that darn vermin. Sorry, but you all did a terrific job

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Mr Frankie and Ernie. What fabo pawsonal security you have at your place. Your mum and ol' sure shot must feel very safe. Bet that old mouse won't be seen again. Take care mates. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Sam said...

We bet that mouse won't be back anytime soon.

Daisy said...

You two boys better get lots of treats after all the effort you put into keeping your yard rodent-free! I'm always so impressed with your gardening skills!
