Last Friday when Dad brought the mail home,
we were surprised to find that he found
Flat Brutus
in our mail box.

He looked so nice and fresh,
Mom was almost afraid
to take our picture with him.

Look at him in the basket with our puppies -
he is about the same size as they are.

Can you see him here?
It didn't take but a few seconds
before the puppies decided that he looked tasty,
so Mom had to quickly rescue him.
And he came out without any bite marks
and still in one piece.

Here's Finlay
doing his Flat Brutus imitation.
He was so sleepy that his head
kept falling down.
Even though you can't see them,
he has his legs positioned just like Flat Brutus.

Then Mom got this bright idea
that she wanted to get a picture of we adults
sitting on the bench on our front porch with him.
Frankly we're a bit frightened of Flat Brutus.
While she was trying to get us situated,
the girls started to fight with each other
and while getting that untangled,
she dropped Piper's leash
and he saw a great opportunity
to go exploring.

Mom got the girls in the house
and into their respective corners
so Piper got to pose with Flat Brutus -
not too close together,
but on the same bench.

Thank you Michelle and Brutus
for sending Flat Brutus to us.
He will be leaving Rocky Creek Farm tomorrow
to go to visit the pups at
Ginji's Corner.
Fair Winds and Following Sails,
Flat Brutus.

Nine cute pups in a basket - that's like a quart of love in a pint pot.

Sue said...

Those pups barely fit in the basket anymore. I tried taking spring pictures yesterday and my pack wasn't cooperating either.

Luckily Flat Brutus is flat otherwise he won't fit into the basket. We are so jealous that Flat Brutus gets to spend a moment with the puppies in their basket.

Jazzi said...

Never a dull moment at your place! Look at that basket of puppies......such sweet, puppy smelling love!! What a treat! I know they are bringing you such joy and laughter. I'm jealous!:D

Flat Brutus looked right at home in the basket with the puppies. Too bad about the girls all bickering over which one would get to be next to FB but Piper handled the photoshoot quite well.

It is great that Flat Brutus got there in time to meet the pups. Looks like he was enjoying some puppies his size.

This was exciting to see because Flat Brutus is coming to my house too! Does he have a good disposition? Does he eat a lot?

We are already making plans for him here, so we hope you continue to have a good time with him.

We'd like a basket of puppies. Flat Brutus hardly fitted in. Made our Mum happy that the others weren't too cooperative for the photo shoot....

A new addition to the puppy basket BOL He sure is almost the right age/size. I wonder if I'll be afraid of him too.

Shelley said...

I wish I could get in that basket and play w/ all those puppies - but I think I'm too big! By the way, my mommy's favorite pj bottoms have Scotties on them! She's wearing them on my blog today!

How great to find your cute blog! I am a pet sitter of 3 Scotties every so often when their parents are on vacation and those pups are so fun to walk through the fields with! Congrats on the adorable! If you ever need a pet sitter to fly out to see them go to --- haha!

What stories Flat Brutus is going to have to tell! From the looks of his eyes, we're thinking he might've been a wee bit overwhelmed! And what dreams those puppies are going to have! Sharing space with such a handsome dude. (They look darling in that basket, all huddled together.)

We hope his journey is a good one. We think it's great that he was able to stop by and meet you wonderful Scotties!

Jake and Fergs (who hope to meet you in the 3D someday!)

Mango said...

So the puppies want to eat Flat Brutus and the grown up dogs are afraid of him? Most curious.


Oskar said...

I wonder why the big doggies were afraid of him...he doesn't look mean!

Hi there! This is my first time by your bloggie. Brutus and his mom told me abouts you so I thought I would drop by and say hi. It looks like FB had a Most Fabulous time at your house. Lots of excitements - what with puppy attacks and runaway dogs and such.
