FFHT September - apologies

Oh dear I do believe I shall have to send my apologies to my Dood pals Murphy and Stanley this month.

You know, I so enjoyed taking part in their 'Fractured Fryday Hairy Tales' events in July and August. They really were super good fun, and everyone's stories just grrrreat.

But this time I don't think I can do it.

You see, the task is to write something including the phrase 'Just when I thought things couldn't get worse'.

All my friends will know by now that I had a perfectly horrid real life experience last weekend.

Oh it has just been too hard for me, this week of all weeks, to conjure up a narrative about things getting worse.

Right now, I only want to think happy thoughts.

I want to think about sunshine, lamb shank bones, cuddles with Gail, trips to the park, my tank-loving girlfriend Addi, games on the beach, mountain expeditions, comfy sofas, more lamb shank bones, more cuddles, and a world in which everything just gets better and better.

I am trying my best to be brave, I really am.

I do hope Murphy and Stanley will understand.


  1. Bertie! We think you're extremely brave. Keep recuperating.

    BART, Ruby and Otto

  2. We don't think your week could have been any worse....and you survive.

    Think happy thoughts! (Chasing deer, perhaps?)

  3. Lamb shank all the way! I guess you have already seen an interesting positive in all this... Your scientific experiment!

  4. Oh yes, be happy Bertie
    Sending lots more loves and licky kisses to you and Gail for you both to be betters soon

  5. M&S sure will understand dear Bertie. We send you big hugs and say chin up old bean. We say onwards and upwards and do yes think about all those wonderful things.Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly.

  6. I think you wrote the book on "just when I thought things could not get worse" with that horrid incident and all. Rest up and dream of all those juicy lamb shank bones.

  7. We agree with Rubie. Your week has been stressful, you need to center your chakra and practice your OOOHHHMMMs.

  8. Bertie, things just couldn't get much worse than your episode last weekend. So in a way, you're right on with Fractured Friday!

    PeeS...Hope you're continuing to recover nicely!

    As others have remarked, you have had your share of the worse and cuddles and happy thoughts are definitely the way to go... that and perhaps reading others' tales for a giggle. Here's pawing that you are back on writing form for the October FFHT! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  10. Oh good friends always understand when we need to take a deep breath and just enjoy life.

  11. we agree Bertie - at the moment you need just to think of all the good things in life and getting back to being 100% so the adventures can begin again

  12. Oh, Bertie, you are such a young, strong boy I am certain you will be healed and well before you know it. Pawsitive thinking is always a help, too, However I think the trauma, of the fight itself will stay with you long after your wound has healed and your hair grows back, You ill need to work on your self-confidence until it is as over-the-top as it was before the battle!

    Stella, Jo and Zkhat

  13. Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse . . . it didn't! :D

  14. Good choice, Bertie! Lamb shank bones (I never had any but they sound deicious) and cuddles (I get lots of those) sound just right under the present circumstances. I hope you and Gail are doing OK!!!

    Wirey love,
    Just Harry

  15. No worries! Sometimes a story is too close to real life. Besides, you actually LIVED your story just a little bit ahead of time. We hope things are DONE getting worse and everyone is HEALING!! Next month will be better in all ways!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  16. Hi Bertie! I'm glad to meet you although it has been a very hard week for you and your mom. That must have been very scary. I'm glad that you are on the mend and your mom's arm is getting better and more colorful! Drop by to see us in the Bayou. ☺

  17. Bertie darllin'....we suggest a change in title..just when things are the worst EVER...we are all very happy to hear that Bertie the Braveheart is on the mend and his WFT fun loving spirit lives on.
    Hugs madi your bfffffff

  18. Lyon have a very good reason not to be participating. Feel better and sending healing vibes
    Lily & Edward

  19. We just knew those doods would understand!! Stay in your happy place Bertie and concentrate on getting better!!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  20. Bertie, it is good to have such nice thoughts. I hope they make you feel better.

    Loveys Sasha

  21. They will understand.

    And cuddles! Did I read cuddles!

    Sending lots of healing wags.

  22. Oh Bertie. We agree, thinking of good things is sometimes the only way to go. We hope you are up and running again real soon. Take care little mate.
    No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  23. Thats perfectly find, Bertie, don't worry we all understand!

    The Mad Scots

  24. They are pretty understanding doods, so I wouldn't fret about it at all. We all just hope you and Gail are feeling better and can enjoy a nice CALM and UNEVENTFUL weekend!

  26. Oh Bertie, Im so happy that you are thinking bout me. You know when you are back in tip top shape I do think that we NEED to get that big ole green tank out and cruise for an exciting afternoon of seeing what we can blow up. What do you think??


  27. oh Bertie! You poor poor pup, I can tell that you is feeling very sorry for yourself and rightly so. I do hope you heal well and that it doesn't leave any emotional scars for your and Gail, what a scary thing to be attacked, and by a sort of pal too.

    Lamb shanks seem like very good medicine. I is sure Gail forgave you for biting her right away. You know Auntie Penny bit mum once too, Mum was running a bath with hot water and Auntie Penny jumped in it and started screaming. Mum grabbed her to pull her out but in her panic she bit Mum. Mum just felt bad for Penny though.

    Oh, yes, I is very glad I will not need a passport to visit Scotland. TND said we were not going on holiday there anymore if it be a 'yes'. He used to live in Aberdeen too and still has lots of friends there.
