Patches and Auctions!

What's this? The nip sausage from Mollie and Alfie has an unexpected red patch?
It seems poor nip sausage has been to the nip sausage hospital!

And now it looks like even the patch needs a patch!

Young Austin is powerful and mighty,
Nip sausage was always in flighty.
He gave it some lovin'
And plenty of shovin'
But couldn't resist the odd bitey!


Hey! Listen up toolaymond! Austin here.  I have some new friends, oh yes I do! :)  First of all, many of you will know that Benny from Two French Bulldogs is fighting horrible liver cancer very hard. He is being very brave about it and loads and loads of folks from the blogosphere have been supporting him and his sister and mom in lots of different ways.

One of the ways was an auction which was held by two little chihuahua girls who live in England called Dip Dip and the Bridge (Dinah and Bridget). They also have a little brother called Elliot. Now, even though they are woofies, I kind of like them, not the least because I reckon I'm quite a bit bigger than they are :))).  Anyways, this auction was to bid for a mini-me that their mum will crochet to the successful bidder's specifications.  I was the that successful bidder >^,,^<

Now, this is where The Staff and I had a little disagreement about what exactly the specifications should be! I wanted it to be of her, so I could practice my shiatsu technique on her without having to listen to the constant screaming and seeing her leak red stuff all over the place. She said no way was she going to allow me to stick my pins into a little doll of her!!???

So, as she's got the thumbs and keyboard skills (allegedly), it's to be of moi!  Yep, there is going to be a mini-moi! You must go and look at what great mini-mes their mum has created. Quite amazing! So now I can't wait to see how I turn out! :)  



keyboard, key-bored - what I get when The Staff spends too much time tap-tap-tapping on her laptop when I haven't been fed for at least ten minutes

    Mum is hard at work making your very own mini-me. Haha, she has never made a human mini but we reckon we could all use one to teach our humans a lesson - kind of like a crochet voodoo doll!
    Having seen the patch on your nip-sausage, Mum is glad she is crocheting your mouse from hard-wearing cotton yarn, felt wouldn't have lasted a moment with your fearsome self :)
    Thanks again for bidding, you are the best!

  20. Yep, that patch needs a patch! Those Mini-mes are so cool, did you see the one she made for me I posted 2 Mondays ago?

    ReplyDelete
  21. A mini-you, eh? Just so long as she keeps the pins far away (chortle). Oh, we can completely identify with key-board-edness. We have the same issue over here!

  25. Oh my Austin - is the world ready for a mini-you??? Oh why not! I bet it will be quite fun to carry about a mini-version of you everywhere you go in the house rather than that damaged sausage that you viciously did the bitey-bite on!! Can't wait to see the mini-you......Woo Woo

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  31. Austin, love your key-bored definition. And I hope you enjoyed the great poem your staff wrote in your honor :)

    Congrats on winning the mini-me auction.

  32. OMC!!! A mini Austin will be adorable!!! We looked at the little chi chi on her page and fell in love.

    I know, I know...I'm a cat and have been known to be just a little judgmental towards our canine cohabitants... but Benny and Lily are VERY good friends of ours and we were crushed when we heard the news. We're keeping him, Lily and their mom in our thougts and prayers.

    xo,
    Katie

  33. Oh, I love those mini-mes! Adorable. I can't wait to see yours, Austin. And the fact that you helped out such a great cause makes it even better. :)

    Almost makes up for the fact that you tore a hole in your toy like a bad kitty. ;)

  34. I think a voodoo doll of the human is a bloody good idea! Don't pardon the pun. I should start working on one of TW but it's so much fun working on her instead. Great limerick.

  41. We came here from Molly the Wally! Love the blog!

  42. Those mini-mes are adorable! Better that it's of you anyway, because shiatsu isn't really that much fun if there's no blood.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Austin hope all is well and just popping by to let you know you had a load more comments yesterday. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly
