Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Avalon's Turn: My First Victim

About a week ago, Mom put out this piggy. I took to it right away, even though it was my sister's toy. She got it about a month ago in a goody bag for being in a "rescue parade." Then... last night, Mom caught me with the flashbox... exploring Piggy's innards.

I was having so much fun that I didn't even realize Mom was watching me.

Yuppy... I started it all on the floor, where Sammie's investigating my handiwork. Then I heard Mom's voice.

Don't you all think I give a pretty good "hairy eyeball?"

Exhausting work that de-stuffing...

I'm sure that you were just giving the piggy emergency surgery, right?

My 2 year old Golden Neeli says that it looks like fun to do that to the piggy! She's done similar surgery on her woobies in the past.

Kari in WeHo said...

woo hoo isn't it great fun to destuff things?


Patti and DeBoys said...

I do that sometimes especially when Tytus quicks that darn quicker.

Barbara said...

Oh, I know that's fun because Minnie does that to every toy she gets! And our guest comforter!!

Next time, go hide somewhere...like under the bed or in the crate. Mom will never find ya there!

Ha Ha, Ms. K is funny. It looks like you might have more surgery planned with that soccer ball. And oh yes, great hair eyeball look:)

Woo! Way to go, Avalon! Just make sure you don't eat the pieces or swallow the stuffing. Bipeds seem to frown upon that sort of thing.
PS: Not that I would have eaten an octopus arm and a Rhino's head or anything....

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

What a great job.. We love destuffing stuffies..

I fear the days of soft toys are going away! Once you learn how to find that one weak spot...well, we saw what happened. Hope you love tennis balls and hard rubber toys because I think your soft toys are all headed for destruction one by one.

Lorenza said...

Your first one Avalon! And many more to come!
Good de-stuffing job!
Kisses and hugs

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...


Woo done your breed furry proud!

AND, provided a GReat blog post!

Did you find any bacon in there? I heard it comes from inside a pig. That alone would motivate me to try the same thing!


Honey the Great Dane said...

Congratulations on de-stuffing your first stuffie, Avalon!! That's a great moment in any doggie's life - hee! hee!

Avalon, I don't think we will be buying you any pink stuffies for your Christmas Pressie. Unless you think you need a new pink pig. The HoundDogs

Texas The Doxie said...

Good job Avalon! dats what I do wit my stuffies too!!!

Martha and Bailey said...

What a great job Avalon - very thorough!
Your mom captured it very well on the camera and we especially liked 'the look'!
Now in the UK they are selling a dog toy for Xmas with no stuffing - what on earth would be the point of that?

The Thundering Herd said...

Excellent surgical skills! And we loved the look. That is as skilled as Queen Natasha can do!.

Bruce said...

You'd think they'd stuff those things with something good...what's the point of all that work if there's not even a treat in there! Come on toy makers...get with the program!
Happy Thanksgiving!
your cat pal,

KB said...

You are a very talented de-stuffer. I'm amazed that you waited so many months for your first destuffing! My dogs destuff almost any toy that enters our house...immediately.

Happy Thanksgiving, Sammie and Avalon!

It's a tough job, but somedog's got to do it!

Happy Thanksgiving! :)

It is perfectly fine to use HBO words and scary body language with annoying teenagers. Be they human or canine.


Augie and Ti's mom said...

The hairy eyeball! Ha ha ha! You are soooooooooooo cute! You can get together with Augie, because it his mission in life to destuff every toy. Poor Ti has only had carcasses to carry around.
