Birfday Box - Didn't See That One Coming

OK . . . OK . . . I am almost out of breath for the shock of our birfday pressie that the UPS man brought in the giant box yesterday. You are NOT going to believe what it was.  Not in a MILLION years!!  First thing was that we knew it was heavy cuz it was hard for dad to get into the house.

As soon as mom said it was our birfday pressie, and our birfday is not until February 3rd, I knew we could not wait that long to open it!

Me and Stanley decided to put the Doodle Team effort into persuading mom to open it.

We figured that since it came from  a pet products place that it HAD to be full of wonderful stuffs!  So dad dragged the huge box downstairs into the Big Room (yes, our pawrents are so lacking in creativity that they actually do call this room the Big Room). And then dad opened the box and put the pieces together.  We could not believe our eyes.  We have seen these before but NEVER at our house!!  Are you ready to see what it is???









Yes, it is a hangman's platform!  Mom seemed all delighted with it, muttering all about how it was going to make it easy to comb me without breaking her back.  Now I will admit, it was kind of fun when she made it go up and down, and the idea of mom combing me is a nice one but our fur stealers have some of these and now we are worried if our pawrents have other ideas too?  Stanley is right, no good can come of this!

Murphy & Stanley

Mom's Note:  Murphy and Stanley get combed every day.  Their Doodle coats are very heavy (especially Murphy's as it is more woolly but Stanley has tighter curls) and when we leave them long in the winter we want to make sure they don't get any mats. They are both VERY good about grooming and it is common for them to sleep through their comb out. But it is uncomfortable to be hunched over when we do it.  I love this!  It raises high enough that I no longer have to bend over to comb Murphy, and low enough to accommodate Stanley.

This doesn't look like a fun gift! It looks more like a gift for your mom and dad!
I agree, no good can come from this!
Have a wonderful Friday! :)

MOL MOL MOL Big room. OMDs M&S we have something similar to that. We have a room called the study but NO ONE EVER studies in it. Well sometimes Dad studies the tvs.

WOW YOU GOT A TABLE FOR YOUR BARK DAY. WELL IT IS SPECIAL CAUSE IT WILL ENABLE YOU TO BE GROOMED AT YOUR LEISURE. As for your disappearing ears I guess you wanted to make sure they didn't get too much grooming
Hugs madi your bfff

We think a huge box of treats would have been a much better pressie. Be careful because next thing you know your mom will be brandishing clippers like Fiona and Abby's mom does too.

Ranger said...

OMD…. you gots a torture table? Dat's not a gift for you two. Dat's a gift for Mom. I'm sure you will get other gifts on your Barkday dat is just for you guys.

OMD DOOOOOOOOODS.... we FAINTED when we saw that you got a torture table... OMD Furst they say it is just fur Combing... then they will say... just a little Snip here and there... THEN comes the Buzzards.. THEN.... the nail STEALERS. OMD Pack your bag and come HERE.

OMD this is WORSE than when Puddles' Mum got HER Nail Stealers fur Christmas.
Gentlemen... start PACKING!!! THAT is NOT a fit Birfday #2 Pressie...
We think you should DO #2 ON it. It is THAT kinda pressie.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Our Mom is giggling. We have No Idea Why, as we don't find that a particularly amusing birthday present, either! Hopefully when your Mom ordered that contraption, she also ordered some FUN stuff, like bully sticks or squeaky toys or treats or SOMETHING good. Just saying....

HAH - so it wasn't an outside room, but I just knew it would have something to do with your furs!!! C'mon doods, it's not sooooo bad. Really.... (Mom - just put on the Mozart and lull them into that grooming slumber combined with massage. They'll be putty in your paws.. er hands...)
Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

No offense to your parents, doods, but you were robbed!

NanaNor's said...

Boys, I think the next thing mom will be doing is learning to groom you-cute your hair. I think it is a wonderful idea and I've often thought about learning how to do it-saving money. Maybe you'll get treats when they are done combing you out.
Have a great weekend.

Susie and Sidebite said...

OMD, hopes they don't forget abut you and leave you in that hang mans noose all night!

The Mad Scots
Pees; I kinda disappointed it wasn't the giant poopie pellet shooter!

scotsmad said...

OMD! That's a PRESENT??!! Someone has the wrong idea there..... But we were afraid it was a hydrobath or somethingy.

You two really DESERVE cake and ice cream, that's all we can say.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

KB Bear said...

What a pressie! I thought it was a noose for a sec too!! I am chuckling a bit - no way would Shyla ever go on that thing due to her fears. But, I'm so happy that it works for you! Happy Birthday, Boy Doods!

BTW, you asked on my blog about how many trail cameras I have. I don't like to advertise it but I have close to a dozen! I've been collecting them for years and years.

Elyse and Riley said...

Umm, doods, you do know that that contraption is up there on the list of evil torture devices, correct? Also on that list are nail clippers and evil squirrels...just to give you some perspective! ;)

But hey, I've gotta agree with your mom, it must be nice to not have to be all hunched over when she combs you guys. If only there was a way to incorporate something like this when I'm poop scooping our backyard...guess I just need to get a scooper that's a little bit taller, because I have to hunch over with the current one we have and by the end of the scooping, my lower back is killing me!

You gotta look at it this way,,, it will make your pawrents happy and make them not hurt their backs, and it will be so easy for them to keep you both beautiful!
But I hope you get a toy for your birthday, and some icecream too.
