Mommy said that we should write Uncle Cowboy Puppy and let him know how nice it was to have him come and stay with us. Dory is ummm, thinking of how to put it into words (she is blonde you know) so I will start...

Dear UCP,
I am ever so ummmm ok with the fact you came to visit. You were pretty well behaved and I only had to tell you a few times to leave me alone. I didn't mind the continuous butt smelling too much
Align Center

...and it was kind of nice having another guy puppy to hang out with.

I will forgive all the times you tried to eat my bed...

because I know you are just a little pup (even tho you are already TWICE my size).

I will miss ummm...ok, so I won't miss you but I am glad that you came to stay...
Your Best Nephew Dog,

OK, I am ready now Mama...

Dear Uncle Cowboy Puppy,

I only had a few rules...

1. It's all about ME

2. I get ALL the attention

3. It is MY backyard

4. Stay OFF my Daddy's lap

You broke ALL FOUR!!!

You were all cutesy, so my Mama AND Daddy paid you a BUNCH of attention so it was NOT all about me...

Mama never got ME a KONG!!!

You gave them the whole...I am such a stately puppy routine, how am I suppose to get ALL the attention when you are looking so handsome and stately.

"Ummm....my backyard...."

You are not remembering rule number 3 UCP.....

OK, so maybe I didn't say my Back Porch..but sheesh, do you have to look so darn cutesy?!!

Now, I was O....K...with all the above...and we still might have gotten along...but I don't know if I can forgive THIS......
This is MY DADDY!!!!!

Thank you so much for visiting, I can not express how HAPPY I am that you are at your new FUR EVER HOME with Grandma and Grandpa...please stay there and we will visit you!

Love and Kisses Your Bestest Niece,

Note from the Mama
I was so surprised that Dory was not at all impressed with her Uncle...She was very needy and wanted to be very close to us at all the times. More than once this included "herding" UP away from myself or her Daddy. We made sure to spread the love and not pay attention to Cowboy exclusively...Bilbo on the other hand was like he said, ok, with Cowboy. This should make things next March pretty interesting.

Our Mom says the best time with visitors is when they come and when they go. You showed Cowboy a good time but you were glad to see him go. We understand.

Have a wonderful Thursday.

Glad the little pest is finally gone. That cute routine doesn't cut any ice with me!


martha said...

These puppies can be a bit of pest Dory - they make those big puppy eyes and melt the heart of humans!!!
We know better!

Madi and Mom said...

What a great post and commentary from Bilbro and Dory's point of view!!!Excellent JOB!!! Mom and lol while she read it. She can identify with you on a feline level. Our first cat was male he was 7 when my Sis got her 1st cat a female. He and the female kitty got along beautifully. I (Madi) was 3 when my Sis got her 2nd cat a male. I WAS NOT AT ALL HAPPY ABOUT ANY OF THIS. He was in my face, in my food and yes smelling my butt (how cool is that) and IN MY BOX how dare he. Dory we are the Divas of the house and like it that way don't we? Mom came to the conclusion that adult male cats are more accepting of kittens than Adult female cats. Madi

Bijou said...

Hi Dory,

It's good that Cowboy has moved on to his new home. I am afraid of what you might have done to him for breaking the rules! BOL

Wags & wiggles,

Emma Rose said...

Hi Dory! I'm with you - they can visit briefly but they cannot stay. This is MY castle! :)
Thanks for following my blog, we love to meet new friends. I'm sure we will share lot's of fun times!

Cole said...

I'm glad to read both of their perspectives on having Uncle Puppy stay with them.

Maybe I missed it... but what happens in March?

The OP Pack said...

Next time should be easier, Dory, because you will understand that Cowboy won't be staying and that all the rest of things will stay the same. And next time Cowboy will a LOT bigger.

UCP is pretty darn cute, but so are you.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Mack said...

When mom babysits her friend's chihuahua, Lilly won't eat for a week! I, on the other paw, quite enjoy roughhousing with my guests.

Tank said...

Dory - there's no excuse for this. If UCP returns you need to make sure he follows your rules. If he doesn't... maybe you could just leave the gate open a tiny bit and encourage him to GO exploring.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Hmm, I would characterize your reactions to UCP as "tepid" ...

Scout 'n Freyja said...

Dory is a little princess so it is only understandable that her tiara was a little lop-sided!

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Very well thought out letters Dory and Bilbo, we think Uncle Cowboy Puppy got the point.
We bet you both enjoyed the company really - some great pics there of you all.
Wags and kisses

Paco,Milo, Maya and mommy Simona said...

But you were very lucky...he's gone now....Maya will be here furever!!!!
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....but maybe we'll love her in the future.....and got a new sister isn't too bad,is it?????
What do you think sweet Dory???
HAve a wonderful day!!!
WE love youuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!

Fred said...

Dory--you are too funny! Sounds like you are very protective, but I'm glad UCP found a forever home now, too.

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Tank woo fur this post!

My mom shared UP (okay, UKhP) with my Auntie Di - she's still in love with him!

ANYWAY, I think Dory will be better with him when she's had more time to be around him!

PLUS, he'll learn he needs to listen to her!

Please keep sharing Khowboy stories! He's khwite the striking fella!

Dory and Bilbo
We have just given you an award, would you like to get it from our blog.
Wags and kisses D+B xx

ScrapsofMe said...

Dory, I can understand where you are coming from! Puffers gets along famously with everyone but ME. (And I'm good with that too, dang it!) SHE sometimes doggies sits for her friends and silly Puffers loves it when Gator or Sally comes to stay. I, on the other hand, am exceedingly happy when they LEAVE. I wish they'd take Puffers with them! You were gracious enuff with UCP and made him sorta welcome. Family n Fish start to go bad after 3 days, it was time for him to go.

Love this post, and the pics were great too.

JackDaddy said...

Oh my, I thought Jack was the only one who ate the bed!

Sunny said...

Hi Dory,
I understand completely...I live with 2 cats and sometimes they demand that Mom and/or Dad pet them and all. Well I luv my feline sisters but enough is enough. Sometimes I just have to break up all the luvy duvy stuff. Mom calls me jealousy justard.
I like all the pictures that your Mom took, maybe your Grandma and Grandpa would like a couple of cats?
Luv, Lucy (Woof!)

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

It was super nice to write UCP a letter. We felt the same way when Jack came...He acted just like UCP. When will the hoomans understand that us grown up doggies don't like puppies?

Wags and Licks,

The Army of Four said...

You know what they say - "Houseguests are like fish - they start to stink if they stay around too long." Mmmmm... stinky fish!

chicamom85 said...

Dory, I am with you on this one sister. No dog and I mean no dog, gets near to my Daddy. He is my Daddy, you go find your own. I will actually run around crying if I have to. I am glad Uncle Cowboy Puppy is safe at his home. I am sure you will be busy getting your yard back to normal and trying to cover any smells he may have left. Cowboy is pretty cute though, will from a distance.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Reese =^..^= said...

That was very nice of you to write Uncle Cowboy Puppy a letter.

GoldenSamantha said...

I know you must be enthralled by the fact that Uncle Cowboy Puppy went home hehee! (But he sure is cute!)
Hugs xo

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Mom still says UP is so cute.
I'm siding with Dory on this one, BOL!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Dory!
Yes, puppies break all the rules!
I guess I am lost. What will happen in March?
Kisses and hugs


Hi Dorey,

Well yes, UCP is adorable but enough is enough already! After all, you did live there first!

I must say though, you were a very patient and good hostess while he was there.

Me and Riley understand the daddy thing, you can look but don't touch!

Glad you got your yard back. Bilbo is soo cute!

Star and Riley.

Teddy Bear said...

We are so happy that you have your Mom and Dad all to yourselves again.

Benson and Lily said...

What a nice letter you wrote. Puppies are nice and even nicer when they go home for a bit.

Sierra Rose said...

Great letter Dory!!! Hope you will visit Uncle Cowboy Puppy and he can write YOU a letter after the visit....
Sorry Dory, mom has a soft spot in her heart for Cowboy! And, you too of course!!!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Jazzi said...

Hi Dory
I understand your thoughts exactly. I like the rules that you have, they are all about me!!! but you were nice enough to share and that was good. The best thing about company coming is......that they do go HOME!!!! Yippee, now you can get back to normal!! Glad to see that you survived though.

Paw knocks!

Cocorue said...

i totally get you Dory......and these houseguests can be so dang annoying ....

i now do not treat them badly....i was soooo nice that they got suspicious and decided to leave while the going was goood....
chikisses for a fab weekend

Brownie said...

Dory and Bilbo, you were so nice to let Uncle Puppy stay with you! I am sure that when you go visit him, you will make sure to break all his rules!

Piappies World said...

Hi there Dory and Bilbo!
You guys are really sweet to have written about Uncle Cowboy Puppy.
We're sure UCP really enjoyed your company as much as you enjoyed his.
Dory, our mommy kept laughing as she read your letter because she could read through your letter that despite all the rules UCP broke, you also had fun while he was with you.
Having mommy's 100% attention all the time is really tough but she does make each of us special.

- Fudgie, Princess, Scrappy, Bullet

ps: Mommy is about to share the rest of the piappies in our world. Yup, there's more to just the 4 of us. Do stay tuned. =)
