Cubby vs. Puppies

I got to meet Gidget's puppies yesterday. I was very excited that I was going to meet these cute little guys. Little did I know the horror that I was hurtling toward.

I started just by looking at them in their little cage (what happened to the crab?). How cute. My little nub was wagging. I was looking forward to playing with the little ones.

Then one puppy was released. We sniffed, my nub wagged. All was well. He was just suckering me in. They must have had it planned.

Then it happened. When all the puppies were released, they attacked! Did you know that puppies have tiny needle-like teeth? They look cute and innocent, but they are evil! They were biting me! Mom says they were trying to nurse. I'm not so sure. I'm not their mom, and they were biting some pretty sensitive areas, if you get the picture. Six piranhas! I got up on the couch, and they started biting my toes! Cannibals!

Due to my distress, we went back to just a couple of puppies. The moms and Kathy protected me, and I enjoyed the rest of the visit from the other side of the bars. I got many many kisses from my friend, Kathy. I had a great time.

Friends, no matter how cute they look, don't let your folks get a puppy!

Wow - a puppy gang! You're lucky you got out alive!

Charlie said...

I can relate, Cubby! When Charlie was a puppy, I used to always have bites and scratches and bruises all over my arms. Like Zach said, with so many of them, you're lucky to have made it out alive!!

Oooo owie! Good thing you're neutered... well.. if you weren't... you are now! What an exciting (if a bit scary) adventure! I wonder what it would be like to play with puppies? I once played with a hooman pup and herded her around..but she kept going near my toys so I had to hide them upstairs.

Love and Licks,
Texas (and his humans).

Poor Cubby! You are right, they must have had it all planned out and you were the victim. We are glad you got plenty of kisses to make up for the trauma of a puppy attack. We will keep on the look-out just in case Mom decides to bring one of those puppy things home!

Cubby this is Tosca's Mom. Do you know a dog rescue in the chicago area who can help this poor Boxer?

Very sad. Possibly not salvagable, but I know you are in touch with Boxer rescues. I do not live in this area but was horrified to read this on a dog board.

Oh man that sounds awful. Flash was a puppy when we got him but he was the only one. A gang of them would be bad news.

We cant believe that you let them 'bully' you.

Dog-o-Dog-o-DAWG... you're makin' me 'member some scaweeee days from my past, Cubby! Before I adopted Opie, dogmom brought a whole litter of puppies to live with us and they tried the same thing with me! Luckily, they all got adopted in two weeks...

Darn straight, my people tried to get a puppy and i had the SAME problem!

wally said...

Haha! Puppy swarm! Maybe the army should weaponize them--they're so cute and cuddly you can't fight back but they'll swarm over you with their little teeth leading to immediate surrender!

Poor Cubby. We hope you are all better now. Those little guys sure are cute, but they sound vicious!

You are so lucky you survived. Puppies = evil.

Gotta be careful, fella! Specially if they don't know Who you are. You might think about getting a thicker coat!

Best woofs,

Oh, poor Cubby...assaulted by a puppy gang! It's always the innocent looking ones you have to watch out for! Take care not to let them deceive you again.
