WHAT Breed Is He?

You guys remember my post about the cute little pooch who moved in behind us? No worries... he's fine. I talked directly to his owners... and I fixed their fence so he couldn't get out (and now he doesn't have to be tied up on such a short leash)... and I secured permission for Ryan (or me) to go into their yard anytime we want to play with him (or bring him water or treats, as necessary). So all's good (no thievery required... yet). But that's really not what this post is about...

Remember I said I thought he was a Bichon or Poodle mix? Well, it turns out he is indeed a Bichon Frise. Here's what he looks like...


















Cute, huh? His name's Papi. And he's a serious little bundle of energy. Anyway, as I said, he's a Bichon Frise, which, as you probably know, is pronounced BEE-shon Free-Zay.

So, I took Ryan and a friend (not Crazy Girl... this one is Sweet Girl) out to lunch and the movies this afternoon. On our way from the restaurant to the theater, they were in the backseat, chatting (incessantly). I heard Ryan telling SG about Papi. She said...

"Oh, you should see him! He's the cutest little Bitchin' Fries!"

Yeah, I'm still cleaning Diet Pepsi off my steering wheel.

PS... I didn't mean to mislead you guys... that's not actually a photo of Papi (I got it off the Internet), but it is EXACTLY what he looks like.

Sweet Bichon! And Ryan is adorable!

Diane, are you going to put Puppy or Papi Rescuer in your 'About Me' section... We should be told!

No wonder you have no gumption - Fixing fences that are not your own! You are doing the work of 10 men!

Well, 10 women, and 100 men, to give the proper ratios! Hope you are looking after yourself, as well as the Bitchin'? xx

I always like to have the bitchin' fries with my totally rad cheeseburger and an ohmiGOD soft drink. But that's just me.

Stay awesome,
Moon Puppy Mauger

So, why should I know that it's pronounced Bee-shon Free-zay? I'm perfectly happy to agree with Ryan's pronunciation. It's cool!

dianne said...

He is gorgeous, just look at that adorable face.
Good on you for stepping in and making sure he is OK, you're a kind girl.
Lol at Ryan, just as well its Diet Pepsi not so sticky as the sugary drink. ♡

I just choked on my wine and spent the past two minutes coughing obnoxiously until I signaled for the Boy to smack me on the back. Sexy.

And uh...cute pup. Which begs the question-when are you stealing him?

Coachdad said...

One of my professors had a "bitchin' fries." Her daughter's name is Jill, so she named him Jack. Jack and Jill!

Cathy Winsby said...

Michelle said...

Amy McMean a.k.a McSunshine said...

Ahh I want a Bitchin Fries!!

Blu said...

So glad that you fixed the fence, a bit annoying that you had to do it. Still doesnt sound quite right but it is easier for you now so that is good! It was a difficult situation to be in, when the dog was out in the cold weather. Well done you xxxxxxxxxx

Shanna said...

Seriously! Those Bitchin' Fries dogs are soooo cute! ;)

Sometimes Sophia said...

Very cute pup. We had one a while back, but he was a compulsive eater. He once stole a whole hamburger - bun and all - right from under the nose of its intended. One moment it was on the plate... the next... vanished. He was brutal and fat, and was soon referred to as the Curly Pig.

namaste said...

Bitchin'!

Heather said...

Hahaha!!!! LOVE IT! That is hilarious.
I'm so glad that you got everything worked out. Papi sounds precious. :)

Mel said...

You should steal him anyway and give him to me! I like Bitchin' Fries.

You know who has bitchin' fries? 5 Guys! And, they even tell you where their bitchin' fries come from every day!

Jenners said...

I'm so glad this little story has a happy ending! And what a cute little dog ... I wouldn't be able to resist helping him either!

And Ryan...that girl provides you (and us) with some good laughs!
