A Pawed Poolitcal Announcement.

Hi there, yes it's me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar!  While my human brother, Tristan and my human dad, Gary, are still going through major upheavals in their lives, I told Gary that I would take over his blog, yet again.

These have been challenging times for me also.  I've had to adjust to living in two different homes.  Although it's been unsettling, I'm now familiar with the routine of spending half the week with Tristan and the other half with Gary.  The transition and adapting has been quite the hectic adventure for the three of us.

So while Gary contemplates actually writing another blog pawst, I shall tell you with what I've been up to at Gary's place.
Gary purchased a brand new, luxury bed.  The brand new, luxury bed, is now mine.  Last week, I was feeling poorly.  I proceeded to poo on the brand new, luxury bed.  Such was my poor tummy that my poo seeped through to the mattress.  This left a a stain that Gary feverishly removed.

However, there's more.  Having a rumbly tummy, I went on a three-day pooping extravaganza.  This meant that Gary was rushing around after me with a wet sponge and cleaning products.  Thankfully, the cleaning products did a good job of removing the offending stains on his brand new, luxury crapets, um, carpets.

Each time Gary rushed me out of his apartment and carried me down the three flights of steps, once outside, I couldn't go.  He'd bring me back in.  Back in time for me to continue my pooping extravaganza.

In one last pooping glory, I got up beside Gary on MY brand new, luxury bed he'd cleaned.  He awoke to a pungent aroma, a poopy bed and a brown trickle down his top.  Never seen the old guy jump out of a bed so quickly!

I'm pleased to report that I'm now back to normal.  My eating is just fine and the runs have run away.  Gary and Tristan are taking me to the vets as a precautionary measure now scheduled for the upcoming Monday.
Here's a bit of a Christmas theme in Gary's ongoing creation within his new home.  That's not a real fireplace, but what the heck, it gives a cosy ambience.  The carpets have now been fully cleaned.

So this was sort of a "Pawed Poolitical Announcement."  I know that David Cameron is into Poolitics and I'm sure he loves my comments on his Twitter feed.

*Okay, Gary, I'm all pooped out from doing this pawsting.  Maybe you might get the hint and actually write your own blog pawst!  Arf!*

  2. Hmm...more like a poosting ;) Poor dear Penny, sounds like you suffered immensely this past week. Yeah, it wasn't a picnic for Gary either, but hey - he wasn't the one with the sick tummy, right?!
    So glad to hear you're all better now, the plumbing's back to normal, and the stains and messes are history. Take care, my furiend! (Best wishes to Gary, too!) xx

    1. Hey CindyLu,

      Very good, a poosting! Something you can relate to? Ah yep, I spent four days of letting my butt gush. I felt real crappy and Gary felt crappy.

      Stains all gone and Gary seems to be in better shape from dashing around and cleaning up my spillages.

      Pawsitive wishes and doggy kisses, to you, CindyLu. Say hello to your pawtend human, Kim. Arf!

  4. Oh, Penny! I know what it is like to get the trots (as my grandpa used to call them) and I am a human and get to use a toilet. As a human, when you are feeling poorly it sometimes takes every bit of strength to just get to the toilet so don't feel bad. I am glad you are feeling better. Next time, best to go for a floor like in the bathroom or kitchen if you can't make it out. Maybe try to not go on the bed.

    1. Hi ditchingthedog,

      Actually, my human, Gary, got wise and as soon as he realised I was going into trot overdrive, he'd grab me so I could poo on the bathroom floor. I'm staying well away from pooping on the bed now. Feeling way, way better :)

      Thank you, my kind human friend.

  6. Aww poor poorly Penny, I expect all the upheaval has upset your tummy. Hope Gary is not too upset, what with all the upheaval and poop to clear up. Don't fret Penny he knows you couldn't help it. I'm sure Mr. Vet will give you a clean bill of health. His new home looks wonderful by the way.

    Gary, I recently took my little dog Annie on a few train rides to visit my sister's new shop and embarrassingly Annie did a sloppy poo in sister's new shop, just the stress of the day what did it! Could be just stress for Penny too.

    1. Hi human, Eileen,

      My upheaval did not upset my human, too much. You might be quite right that the moving has cause me to do some moving of the unfortunate type. The vet says I'm fine and that I must have had something to eat that disagreed with my tummy. The ever changing home. It seems that he cannot make up his mind how to arrange his new home.

      Poor Annie and poor you and your poor sister. Stress and different situations sure can stress us dogs out. You may well be correct, dear Eileen.

  23. Oh poor, poor Penny, and poor poor Gary! Such a horrible thing to have happen on new carpets and new beds. But isn't that just the way of it! Buy something nice, treat yourself to the real thing after years of second hands or slightly used and before you know it - it's no longer new - or even close to new! But Penny I'm sure you know, and better than the rest of us - it's not the material items in our lives that count - it's the love of our pets, friends, and family!!!! So don't feel bad, a big hug in Gary's arms, a kiss to his cheek, and all is forgiven. Accidents do and will happen, and it is why cleaning solutions are made, but love, loyalty, and friendship are forever!

    So glad you are well now,!! Now stay away from the holiday cheer, chocolate is not good for you!!!

    1. Hi human, Blue Dumpster,

      It was my crappy way of taking ownership of the brand new, luxury bed. Actually, a four day shitting spree. Shit on his shirt, actually. Your jar is full of molasses. Keep believing that, my alleged human buddy.

      Thanks for your kind wishes, Blue.

      I shall send on your good thoughts to my pawtend human, Gary.

  41. This has been the most widely reported case of canine stomach upset I've ever encountered. Who is Penny's pawlicist? As of today about two people know I write books--my husband and me. I need help.

    As to all the expended Gary energy with the pick her up, run outside, put her down-REPEAT-I'm sure the exercise did you good. Now the Santa Suit will be baggy.

    A Very Merry One to you!

    1. Hi human, Lee,

      My pawblicist is myself. Penny the pawblisher. I spread the turd, um word, using my own pawblicity. You are very well known and your hubby will confirm this, my human, Gary, also confirms this. And, ta dah, I confirm it.

      Gary needed the extra exercise. We both got pooped out in our own wacky way. If Santa comes down our fake fireplace with a full sack, Gary tells me he'll get a doggy treat up his butt.

      A peaceful, pawsitive Boxing Day Eve to you, your husband and your zillions of adoring fans.

      No cookies involved. Not sure what I ate to cause me such problems. Might of be Gary's dirty socks. A brand new luxury bed that's officially mine! I couldn't wake him so I crapped on him. Then I jumped off the bed and crapped some more. Gary just loves so wake up calls, not!

  55. This post hit a bit too close to home. The flu struck late Monday night. I was DOWN. Except when I was up... in the bathroom. (Poor Penny... Think we can ever teach them to poop in the potty? Or create a dog potty inside?) Anyway, this morning I ate five VERY SMALL pieces of pineapple. Now, I'm in and out of the bathroom AGAIN. Constantly. 5 pieces... how is this even possible????

    I can't imagine how distraught I'd be if I hadn't made it to the bathroom and gone in my bed. I'm so sorry, Gary (and Penny). That's really crappy.

    1. Hi human, Robin,

      Oh no, back and forth to the can. Not good, but better than crapping on the bed. I'm trained to go outside. However, during my shitting spree, inside was the place to be. Potty training? I wonder if you can really train a potty? Arf!

      I can only shudder at thinking what would of happened if you ate five whole pineapples, complete with the prickly skin :)
