Halloween mayhem with Addi and the tank..

So this was the scene in our kitchen as Gail said "goodbye" and "have a great time with Addi" and "please remember to keep your cape nice and straight".

Well you'll have to pop over to Jazzi Addi's blog to see exactly what happened next...

... You won't be surprised to learn that Addi was about as enthusiatic about her 'Target Dog' eye patch as I was keen on my Dracula outfit...

You can rest assured we had those costumes off faster than you could say 'trick or treat'. And as for the notion that we would then just "play nicely" with a pumpkin on a Scottish beach.

Well I think someone was forgetting that Addi and I have a far superior toy at our disposal... 

Oh Addi is a girl after my own heart. We are so alike in our thinking. I mean I know that some pups might be going all "how cute" when given the option to romp around together in a patch of jolly, smiling pumpkins.... 

But we had other ideas..

This was the scene after Addi and I laid waste to that old pumpkin patch...

Oh I can't tell you how much I adore Addi. What a fine, strapping lass she is. I am well and truly lovestruck. Do you know, before I set off for our date I thought and thought and thought about what present she would most like. Gail (who, let's be honest, is a strong contender for the world's most unimaginative gift giver) suggested flowers or jewellery, can you believe?

Luckily, with the help of Addi and Jazzi's Mom, I found something so much more suitable.

I am delighted to report that Addi was thrilled with her Halloween gift, and rewarded me with one of her most awesome ever smiles. She says she will treasure the finger for as long as it takes to totally decompose back in Illinois...

I am such a happy chap. 

Must Addi really return home? 

PS: Thanks to Addi's Mom for the fabulous photos


  1. We have been soooooo worried that that TANK would appear in your celebrating! We're glad that our Halloween is nearly over. We've nearly been cleaned out of treats.

    And we dogs have been banished to the back yard....but we can still bark.....

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

  2. You certainly have your paws full with that girl mate! I think I might have said this before, but it might not be wise to refer to your girlfriend as "strapping" The ladies can get a bit sensitive about that sort of thing. "Big boned" and "Built like a brick out-house" should also be avoided. Deccy x

  3. BOL time there. Have a happy Halloween Bertie.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Finger, that is a weiner tube steak. I recognize a tube steak when I see one.

  6. We knew you wouldn't disappoint us!!

    Happy Howl-O-Ween

  7. I just want to know whose finger that was? I didn't think you were a bitey kind of guy Bertie. I wouldn't want you to get in trouble with the police for chomping someones finger off as a prize for your girl. You two sure looked like you had fun on your date though.


  8. Well you two certainly know how to celebrate!



  9. Oh yes, we did have a great time Bertie. I think we did a fanstastic job on that punkin patch Arrrooooss!!!! We can be PROUD of that!! I LOVE, LOVE, Love the finger!! I will keep it until it decomposes and I do believe that I can get some mileage out of it and scare the furs right off of Jazzi!! BOL

    I will let you know what fun that was Bertie. Thanks for a great Howl-O-Ween!! I had so much fun with you!!


  10. Can we please check Gail's hands to see if she has any missing fingers....

    Happy Halloweenie!

  11. Hey Bertie!
    Wow, looks like you and Addi had a "BLAST" for howloween! BWAR HAR HAR get it, blast! Great tank action with those punkins and think of all the pie those will make. I can tell you had a great time together...say, you didn't get carried away and bite the finger that feeds you I hope!
    Grr and a Spooky Woof,

  12. Oh, forgot about the tank, man you guys blew the snot out of that pumpkin patch and looks like you guys had much fun! HAPPY HOWL-O-WEENIE to you and Gail, may yous have like 87 Hundred more.

    Your Spooky Furiends

  13. I am so glad the humiliating bath and costume palaver that Gail put you through was worth it in the end.

    You looked really handsome and you clearly had a fabulous time with Addi.

    I think it's a match made in heaven

    Love and licks, Winnie

  14. Holy mollies!!
    BOL, Happy Halloween
    Benny & Lily

  15. Oh Bertie, Addi is just perfect for you. Full of fun and a little naughty all at the same time. Glad you had a great Halloween. We thought we heard thunder last night but must have been your tank!! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  16. Ah, Bertie! Looks like you have finally found the perfect PitBull Girlie for yourself. A lovely afternoon spent blowing up the pumpkin patch and a very perfect gift of a detached finger for Addi.

    I will look forward to future "dates" that you and Addi might have. There are just innumerable violent activities you might share, I can't recommend any because I don't think in that way, but I am sure you two won't have any trouble coming up with them at all.

    Cheers and hugs,

    Jo, Stella and Zkhat

  17. What an exciting adventure! And what a waste of a bath, given that you spent the evening in martial pursuits. You and Addi are made for each other.

  18. mmm...Bertie,
    please tell Gail that I am most impressed with your exploits. Do you realise what an awesome Momma you have - to make your adventures so interesting & exciting, and to share them with others? You are starting to remind me of one relentlessly huge doggie in blogland whose legend live on.
    Your own news is gonna go far too. Keep up the good work.
    Lovely, fun post!
    Lotsaluv from your friends in South Africa

  19. Crikey Bertie .... I wish I knew you owned a tank. That could have come in handy on the Roo hunt. Mmmmmmm I see what you mean about Addi being a great Sheila, aye??
