The Naughty George Fan-Club Strikes Again

My dog is a git. He puked under the kitchen table a week or so ago. Not just anywhere under the table, but the exact spot where my feet go when I am working on my laptop (why are they called notebooks now?).

It wasn't until my slippers were covered in dog-sick that I realised what he had done. The complete and utter bastard. As I stomped angrily around the kitchen cursing him, he continued chilling in his basket .... snoring a bit, just to rub it in.

Anyway, at that exact same moment, I heard the 'ping' of an email arriving in my inbox. After safely ensconcing all NG's carrot chunks in the bin (whilst gagging the whole time), I headed back to my computer to check it out.

It was from someone called Hannah who worked for Pedigree Chum in the UK (Pedigree Chum is one of, if not the biggest dog food manufacturer in the UK).

To cut a long story short, Hannah had basically found Naughty George on the internet and wondered if he wanted to try some free 'joint care' chews? Feeling a bit distracted by the vom, I replied back that NG would be happy to try her chews ....... and then I promptly forgot about the whole episode until today.

A big parcel was delivered to my house ..........................

Pic.No.1 A bloody great DHL parcel was delivered to my house, and I had NO idea what it was

Pic.No.2 I opened it and there was a large yellow rucksack inside. On the front of the rucksack, it said 'Pedigree Chum - Play'. Ahh, mystery solved. It was the present from Naughty George's fan-club

Pic.No.3 Inside there were two packets of 'Joint Care' because Naughty George struggles with his mobility. Actually, I can't back that up. Even though he is 16/17 years old, he is faster than a streak of piss. But maybe I could feed them to him in a preventative way? (saves on dog food)

Pic.No.4 Next up - four heavy duty chew/tennis balls complete with a thrower thing. I know for a fact that if I tried to throw one of them for NG, he would look at me with disdain and walk in the opposite direction. He's never been very co-operative when it comes to enjoying himself

Pic.No.5 But the shocker in the pack was this - a bloody HD Video Camera. Now we're talking! Bring it on Pedigree Chum! This was WAY more interesting than my mutt's joints

Pic.No. 6 The HD Camera came with a battery and a 4GB memory card ..... sweet. Owning a dog thing actually does bring it's rewards

Pic.No.7 I was so happy to get the HD camera, that I tentatively lobbed a 'joint care chew' in NG's general direction. And I was pleasantly surprised to see that he was more than happy to scoff it. I wholly expect to wake up tomorrow morning to find him in the lotus position

It wasn't just puking over the kitchen floor that dis-enamoured me with NG today.

Nope, the git got up to other shenanigans. It continued innocuously enough - I let him out for a run in the garden, when suddenly all hell let loose. Naughty George had caught a rat and was in the process of killing it by ragging it to death ............ at the exact same time that Izzy and her two mates had dressed up as fairy princesses and were looking for their princes ....... in the garden.

They all screamed madly at the dead rat, before curiosity overtook them.

Pic.No.8 The dead rat. There were flies on it within minutes .... how do the flies cotton on so quickly?

And in an abrupt u-turn, they all decided that they wanted to examine the dead rat at close quarters ....... so they had a good look at it, pushing it this way and that to get a good view. Kids are minging. 

Pic.No.9 Naughty George pulls a comedy expression

Meanwhile, Naughty George licked his lips, oblivious to the fuss he had caused. He's got a lot to answer for that dog ....... but at least he has good joints.

So what do you have planned for the weekend then?

  1. Pedigree used be in Peterborough (No idea if they still are) Their factory would from time to time put a pong over the city that smelled like dog biscuits. Terrible it was.

    Did Naughty George give you the camera out of his goodie bag or did you nick it?

  2. I pulled a thong out of my dogs butt yesterday...right after I picked up one that had been pooped out in the lawn!  Dogs are so gross sometimes!!

  3. So, let me get this right: 

    1. Your dog is a git.2. Because of this you get a free HD video camera.The internets work in a mysterious way and you are a jammy bird.I've often blogged in the past that my kids can be little sods.Yet, at no point has Fortnum & Mason ever sent me gifts because of it.

  4. I love your dog! And your sentence " he's never been very co operative ..etc " just cracked me up ! But then I have had some gin tonight ! But you always make me laugh , even without the booze . Can you put Dillon down for the yellow pack too ? He would love it ....and I would not mind having the camera thingy!

  6. I'm with Nicki...my dog ate a thong tonight. My husband's daughter came to visit and found Rupert, my Shih Tzu chowing down on her little lace panty. She was not amused, even when I offered to wash it. I wish Rupert would take after his Chinese ratter roots and find a rodent, but unfortunately he has a thing for ladies undergarments. What are my plans for the weekend? I guess I'll be hand washing her skivvies in Woolite.

  7. Dogs are the best!  I hope NG enjoys his present.

    Alfred (yes, good old 'cutest dog in the world', Alfred) was puking the other day (and guess who was travelling, leaving me to clean it).  We were driving home from doggie day care when, from the seat behind me, what did I hear?  Sigh.  Then, when we got home, again.  And, after dinner, Quinn, Alfred, and I were sitting together when he pukes again next to me.  Oh ya, did I mention who was travelling leaving me to clean it.  Thankfully, by the next day, the puking stopped.  Never has he killed a rat, though (then again, Alberta is supposedly a 'rat-free' province).

    Have a great weekend.

    For heaven's sake, woman! You have an ancient dog who A. Is still alive and B. is still able to catch and kill a rat (before it comes into your house!). The boy is a hero in my estimation and deserves a tad more coddling.

  9. I, too, am a huge fan of Darling George's (his darlingness still trumps his naughtyness) Is he really 16/17??
    Sweet boy is a senior citizen.

    Pretty generous pet company.  They can ask me to have my 2 cats try any "hairball" remedies that need tested...I am all over that free camera.

  10. I have to admit, I'm a tad jealous.  I'm mean, my dog spent the morning barking at a balloon stuck up in our tree (and waking up the entire neighbourhood) and all we got was a "SHUT THE F**K UP!"  yelled out someone's window.  I think Bojangles needs to work on his PR...

  11. Wow that's some result. I wish someone would send me a camera......Naughty George is amazing catching ringies at his age......We had to have our dog Mollie a border collie put down last month, which was terrible. However this past week we have been dog sitting the most wonderful puppy for our friends. He's a Patterdale terrier and he is a delight.

  12. That dog is a star. Soon he will be hiking up mountains with his rucksack full of doggy treats while videoing the view. Dillon wants one but his joints are well  good.
    What no video of Izzy & fairy entourage poking the dead rat ? You could stick it on Youtube !

  13. I bet he looks brilliant wearing his new rucksack!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. ........ oh and by the way tell your contacts at Pedigree Chum that I have one old dog, one adolescent dog and one puppy dog....they all chew things and would make brilliant little rucksack wearers!!

    Mind you if I tried to use that ball thrower thingy they would be stood waiting for me to throw the stick, sod the ball!!

  15.  Eh up, you should try writing them to blag some free stuff! It's worth an email, especially if you have got three mutts ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  16.  It's gone down a treat with his homeys!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I forgot to get my camera whilst they were playing with the rat. Not like me to miss an opportunity like that! Poor Dylan, I hope he doesn't feel too left out?!

    ReplyDelete
  18.  Awww, no ... you lost your dog? I'm sorry to hear that - it's awful. I hope the puppy was some consolation :-(

    ReplyDelete
  19.  LOL, so you have a comedy dog too?! You have my sympathies .... but it sure made me laugh my head off!

    ReplyDelete
  20.  Yeh, they were pretty generous, I was surprised by it, I must admit. Why don't you see if you can blag some free stuff for your cats?!

    ReplyDelete
  21.  Alive, and showing no signs of dying! He is certainly very feisty indeed for his age - he could easily outrun a lot of young 'uns half his age.

    ReplyDelete
  22.  Hiya Kevin! Awww no .... poor you. Puke is bad enough, but puking in the car? I am surprised that you didn't reprimand him with a spade. Hey, you do know that Brahm now owes you BIG TIME for not being there. Milk it (if you need any tips, just drop me a line!!)

    Hope your weekend is great too despite that ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  23.  LOL! that is well funny - you dog ate a thong?! And you offered to wash it - comedy genius!

    ReplyDelete
  24.  Awesome? He's a terror on four legs!

    ReplyDelete
  25.  You should bloomin' drop 'em a line and see if you can blag a pack. Say you saw it on here and would also like to review their joint care ;-) Ummmm gin sounds good .....!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeh, I know. I have always been a totally jammy bird! I am like a cat with 10,000 lives ;-)

    I loved that about your kids ...... keep the dream and F&M may be in touch one day!

  27. I nicked the whole bloody bag, lock, stock and barrel. But I am not sure what to do with it yet. Maybe do some giveaways, or donate the camera to the school? Any ideas?

    ReplyDelete
  28.  You could donate it to me, I am poor self employed web designer and volunteer station master. Do I qualify?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nope, as pitiful as you try and make yourself, you don't qualify - because I know that you could probably make one if you put your mind to it hehehehehehe!
