Talk to....

Naturally... I put these pics in the way I wanted them to show up.. and of course they ended up all messed up. OH Well I will just tell you the story and you can sort them out. See THIS is Sarge's Mental Stimulation toy PAW thingy. I learned how to do it in less than 87 seconds. I get to do it EVERY time I go to visit Sarge... it is a BLAST to get the treats out of. I wanted to teach MY ERNIE how to do it... SEE... Easy Peasy..WATCH Ernie... this is how you do it....
I showed him over and over and he just could NOT learn how... He kept lookin fur an EASY way to do it.
I had mom load it up with our favorite... String Cheese... and
Ernie NEVER did Learn how to get to the Prize Inside.Just when I was thinkin he was really SMART.... he goes all STOOPID on me. I didn't mind so much when I found out that He can't Read He can't Talk He can't Blog... SIGH I had to go and get myself ... a Defective Puppy. I think I am gonna give him away (well, probably NOT).
PeeS..... I have been seeing MORE and MORE of the Double the Trouble Word Varification (Prove you are NOT a Robot) thingys lately. Now here is the thingy... they MAY be on YOUR blog and YOU would NOT even KNOW IT.... PLEASE PLEASE ASK your readers if they have to do the Double the Trouble Varification... They will tell you!!! I do not know of ONE Single Blogger that LIKES HAVING TO DO ALL THAT WEIRD TYPING.
It REALLY is NOT needed to protect yourself and your computer.
HERE is a way to tell if they are set on YOUR blog... without asking your beloved readers... just go to your OWN Blog... and Click Follow . When you do that you will see your blog as others see it.
Just so you know.... I am not complaining. It is YOUR BLOG to do as you wish with. I am just telling you this so that you will actually KNOW that it very well MAY be there.
I am going to start telling everybuddy that has it... just for their info. Please don't be angry with me over this.

3 doxies said...

Bwhahahahaha...poor Ernie. But seriosly, why would he goes to aaaaaall dat freakin' trubles to gets it out knowin one of da peeps will sucker into givin' him da cheese? Dat is a doxie mentality. Ain't no reason to over think things.

If you gives him away I'll take him but dont send him by UPS.

Oh my Hardy Har Har. Maybe Ernie doesn't really like string cheese? ;)

Those word verification thingies sure are annoying. Butt I still comment, just wish they'd go away BOL! I don't know about others butt I really don't get much spam by not having any word scrambles :)

Waggin at ya,

Ruby and Penny said...

Morning Frank
We don't like those word verifications. Mom's eyes just don't see them too well.
We're sorry you think you have a defective pup. He's still young give him some time.
Love ya
Ruby & Penny

Sarge said...

Hey Frankie!
Wow, you did so great with my paw toy! I usually get tube steaks when I play it. I think Ernst tried his bestest, but maybe he was afraid he'd hurt it. Gee, I sure hope he isn't defective because he is so CUTE that I think we'd all have to forgive him anyway! BWAR HAR HAR.
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

♥Mona + Weenie + Mommy, too♥ said...

Now Frankie, Ernie is not STOOPID.
I wouldn't be able to do to d0 it either.

Mommy agrees with you about that double verification crap. Now thats STOOPID.

Sniff ya later......Weenie

GOOSE said...

Maybe Ernie thought you'd get them out for you. I'm sure he is past the return date. He is yours forever.
Booooo to word verification!

Remington said...

What an awesome toy! And please let me know if I have that funny vertification stuff on my blog....I never seem to get it right when I have to type it in.... Happy Easter, my friends!

Bassetmomma said...

Awwwe! Somebody's got to love the defective ones too!

Mr. Pip said...

Don't worry, Ernie, I can never figure that stuff out either!

I don't think I have the word thingy on, but maybe I will go check.

Your pal, Pip

Amber DaWeenie said... would do anyting fur food or tweets! Bring in on!

We hate dos wordy tings too. Me gets all crossed eyed after a couple of dos!

Declan said...

Perhaps Ernie is just a bit slow. ahem.... Don't those two word verification things drive you kerazy?! Deccy x

Max the Quilt Cat said...

Don't worry Ernie... you've got cute on your side.

pawhugs, Max

Finn said...

Thank you for telling me!! I don't even know how to turn it off. Ughghghghghgg. Have a good Friday!

Minnie and Mack said...

We have that same puzzle. Mario, our current foster, figured it out in 57 seconds, too. Minnie, on the other hand, couldn't be bothered. And Mack wanted to know, "What is a puzzle", true to Pug form. Ha ha ha.
After Mario got his time down to seconds, we passed the puzzle on to a cousin.

And the word verification thingy is a pain in the ***. We turned it off, thanks to you!

Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack

Bailey said...

Ernie will get it, he just needs to grow a bit. The word verifications are getting worse.

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hey Frankie - I don't think Ernie is a slow learner - I think he's very smart. You see - when he sees cheese, he must remember the "cheese for pees" thingy - and if he is inside....well he knows he is not allowed to go pees... and I makin' any sense? It's late here!

Now I'm all intrigued about your Aussie food thingy. Is it crocodile or vegemite...maybe kangaroo steaks??? I wonder. I'm not going on my trip to uncie's until later in April, so I'll be around for a while yet.

PeeS: Don't make fun of our vegemite now! Your Americans are just not tough enuf to cope with it.... the trick is you havta have it real young, along with the butter on your toast......your tastebuds must mature with it - you can't just eat it when you are all grown up like. Just remember there are wierd things you guys eat too which make us feel ill to think about.

Luff ya, Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Oooo and something else Frankie - that double trouble word thingy!! Well - you know that we had that switched off forever? A few days ago Mum switched us to the new blogger interface thingy.... and it was switched on by itself!! We switched it off as soon as we saw it. Then the next day - we are checking around and it was ON again! By itself!! So we have switched it off AGAIN. I think blogger puts it on when we are not looking! So our fellow bloggers might be thinkin' it isn't on theirs becaws they have switched it off - BUT YOU NEED TO KEEP CHECKING!! Blogger AAAAaaaaarrrhhhh!!!!

Rubie xx

Kat and the Furrsonality gang said...

We took the word verification thingy off of ours - we didn't know we had it on there! So annoying.

And that is like one of the coolest dog toys EVER! And don't worry, Frankie, I'm sure Ernie will get it eventually!

Jazzi said...

now Frankie, Ernie is still just a pup. YOu have to be patient and believe me I know from Addy!! He will get it eventually!! I totally agree with the double word thingy!!


3 doxies said...

I thinks Rubie may be onto sumptin'. But I just came backs to see if you has been havin' anymore nightmares, I could send granny to you fur sweet dreams...bwhahahahahaha.


Nola said...

I got a defective brother, want to trade?

Um, Frankie? I don't think "defective" or "stoopid" is the pawlitically correct thing to say. I think you meant to say that Ernie is special. SPECIAL. Okay?

Wiggles & Wags,

The Army of Four said...

See... if we were presented with that puzzle and couldn't get it, we'd just have to give our mom the Sad Eyes Look and BAMO! She'd give us the cheese. Without us having to work for it. Not too shabby, huh?
PS: I hope our blog doesn't have that stupid thing on it! We have a devil of a time deciphering those things!

The Websters said...

Maybe Ernie just needs a few more lessons.

Our blog is ok right? I check and check it and no word verification on our set up.



chicamom85 said...

Frankie, first of all, string cheese, are you kidding me?? That is like only my favorite kind of cheese ever in the universe. If I had that game, I would kick the whole thing over so all the cheese came out and I would eat it all and not even share with anyone. String cheese makes me crazy. Ernie is still kind of young, I bet if he hangs around you long enough some of your smarts will start to rub off. Maybe you should try rubbing your head against his and see if the smarts get on him.

Loveys Sasha

p.s. I hope that word verification ghost doesnt get me, I am scared now

Julia Williams said...

Poor Ernie, even with someone as smart as you teaching him he still couldn't get the treats out. Well...don't give up, maybe there is still hope!!!

Sweet William The Scot said...

Ernie is not defective ~ he is just different ~ the world would be a very tedious place if every dog were the same.
A Very Joyous Easter to you and your family Frankie.
Sweet William The Scot

Corbin said...

Does my bloggie have the annoying thing? I don't think so... but check for me, okay?

I think Ernie is smartly acting not so smart so he can out smart you later... Yep.

Princess Jasmine said...

Awwwww Ernie, some of us are a bit slower at getting things but when we do we get em big times. I don't think you have to worry Frankie, Ernie will get there in his own time. Mummy thinks she took the double bubble trouble wordy thing off a few weeks ago, but please let her know if it's still there cause she can be a bit stoopid sometimes :)xx

houndstooth said...

Um, did somebody pee in your kibble today? I think Ernie is just fine the way he is! We all have different strengths and gifts. Just because he doesn't like puzzles doesn't mean he's defective. I'll bet he can read all this stuff and he just isn't telling you!

As for the captchas, Mom had to turn comments to moderation for all because some people just kept leaving nasty comments on her artsy blog (that she hasn't even updated in forever). I know you don't like the captchas. Just because you don't have trouble with spam and nasty comments doesn't mean that other people don't. Just my two Milkbones' worth.


scotsmad said...

Maybe Ernie was just funnin' with you. He probably wanted his served to him. He'll get it eventually.

We hate those word verifications, there a squirrel of an idea. Hopefully, our are off.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Macintosh Mitch said...

Don't feel bad, Ernie. My evil mom just told me that I probably wouldn't be able to work the mental stimulation toy either seeing as I can't seem to get the hang of my stoopid treat machine!

Love ya lots,

Two Doodles and a Dane said...


Have a great Easter!


Oskar said...

I have to humble myself and admit that I could not figure out that puzzle. There could be a missing puzzle gene that Ernie & I just don't have. Don't give up on him yet.

I support you on your anti-word verification bandwagon. It's a nightmare!

Nubbin wiggles,

Wyatt said...

Ooooh, I like those mental toys. I just thrash them all about, until the treats fall out. "Brawn no Brains" works for me!!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Yep, the word verification is multiplying again. We are so tired of typing the news. Most bloggers are glad to know, but it's a never ending typing marathon.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Mr Frankie, we can't believe Little Ernie is defective. He just needs a little more time. Just in case though, better find your warranty. Just kidding. We know he has wormed his little body into your heart (and ours too)!! About the two word thingy, we find it annoying too and took ours off. We don't seem to get any spam at all! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Sagira said...

We have that puzzle to. I would get the pieces off and Bokeh would sneak in and steal MY treat. :(

Food puzzles are THE BEST for mental stimulation and anxiety soothing :) Loving this post!
