Since I is the Man of the house,( besides my Dad and mean ole cat dietzman) Isa and Dad decided we needed to go do some menstuffs together, like.... turkey hunting.  So today whiles my Mom was hard at work, and the girls were napping I's and my Dad snucked off to the woods for some "mens" time together.  I asked my Dad if this is what it was meant by going to a "man cave" and Dad said sorta.

Isa asked Dad if I should wear my ninja stealth clothing all in Black so we wouldn't scare the turkeys but Dad said NO we would dress in camo instead.  Isa didn't knows what that was.

Then Dad brought out the big guns and Isa asked Dad which one I gots to carry, cos I was hoping he would let me carry the musket loader.  He said NO, he had a special gun just for me. 

Well, the sun was a shining but the wind was a blowing and Isa was getting cold but I didn't want to start whining and complaining to him cos I thinks that is why he never takes my Mom hunting cos hers might whine and complain about the cold.  Isa asked my Dad if we could stop at the store and buy some of those instant heating pads for my little paws, and he said we could. I just loves my Dad, but my Mom says Isa loves her more.

Well, while we were in the woods, we got to eat some beef jerky Dad brought along, in case we would get trapped in a snowstorm or something like that.  I asked him if I should worry about a snowstorm a coming cos we didn't bring a tent or sleeping bag, or my jammies or binkies but he said NO GUSSIE cos it is 50 degrees out.

 I loved that beef jerky ALOT but then it made me a quite thirsty and I had to ask Dad even tho he told me I needed to BE QUIET if we could go back to the gas station and buy some of that Mountain Dews I saws in those glass bottles.  Dad loves to drink out of those glass bottles. He said NO Angus and that I needed to BE QUIET and so I sat down for a little bit but I was REALLY thirsty cos Isa ate ALOT of beef jerky and I asked DAd Again if we could go get something to drink.  DAD just looked at me, well he kinda glared at me, and said we could go get something to drink pretty soon, well I waited till pretty soon but I was so thirsty and Dad forgot to pack a picnic lunch like my MOM would have done, or even my jammies in case a snowstorm could blow in .... he just broughted along really salty beef jerky and I was so thirsty I was starting to lick the sweat off my own brow.

I finally said DAD I AM DYING HERE COS I IS SO THIRSTY!!!!  Dad told me to drink the water out of my special little gun he let me carry, but Isa was worried that it could be contaminated and my Mom told me never drink water out of a water pistol without boiling it first.  I asked my Dad if he had a pan I could boil my water in and any matches so I could build a fire,  but he said NO and to BE QUIET!  Isa little ashamed of my Dad cos he did not come prepared in case there would have been a sudden weather disaster.

Dad never had any human kids so he didn't know how kids can be whether we are two or four legged and he looked at me like he wanted to drop kick me to the moon.  I told him I had MY MOM on speed dial and I could just call her to come get me.  Well that kinda peeved him off, and the next thing I knows we are back in the truck headed for the gas station so I could get me a bottle of Mountain Dew.  I asked my Dad if he wanted me to pick him up one also.  He nevers even answered me.  I asked me if I could have a candy bar also  or chips and he said NO.  I think this menstuffs together is kinda sucky cos wesa haven't even seen a turkey and Dad is sorta crabby.  Next time my Dad wants to go hunting together Isa gonna tell him to take Maggie cos hers will like it better than me.  (Isa gonna tell her the truths tho, and  tells her to pretend her has a headache when he askes her to go)

So I guess we are having Mom's goulash for supper tonight and not that turkey breast that Dad promised us.  I suggested we stop off at the grocery store and just buy a turkey but Dad just looked at me. HE. NEVER. SAID. A. WORD.

  2. Aww, sorry your hunting trip was a bust Gus. But your story made me smile.

    Best wishes Molly

  4. BOL! Dads just don't go prepared like Mommas do, huh?

  5. Hawwooo wooo! Pops says I am not to be trusted around stray turkeys:)


  6. That's why we all stay home while Dad goes hunting, too Cold and not enough treats!
    Bailey, Hazel & Greta

  7. Hi there Stella Rose, I am glad no turkeys were hurt during the afternoon. I've never tasted wild turkey before and wonder what it is like. I'm glad you got some guy time with your dad but he should think about your needs a bit more next time. Have a great afternoon. I love cinnamon rolls too but can't eat them due to the flour-such a bummer.
    Wags, Noreen & Hunter

  8. Hey Gussie!
    Wow, that's BOL funny! Sorry your man-day-out was a bit disappointing. I don't think Dads are as worried about foodables/drinkables as Moms and as we are, but they are totally fun to roam the woods with anyway....most of the time. I always try to help my Dad by barking like mad whenever turkies get close, but that seems to peeve him like your dad. I don't get it either.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  9. Did you catch that turkey after all that huntin?
    Benny & Lily

  10. We sure are sorry your hunting trip didn't work out. But seriously, what was your dad thinking not bringing some sweet tea or something? Jerky is very salty so of course you got thirsty! If he had ice cream that would have helped. You are right in sticking with your mom. Mind always think of stuffs like that !

    Your Pals,

    Murphy and Stanley

  11. Well now Angus Mac... We WISH you had Consulted with US furst before going on a Mens Time Huntin trip with your dad. WE have both done it and it was Always a BAZASSTAR. Dad's Have NO idea how to PACK FUR US... they only have their minds on the Guns and the stuffs that THEY need. We even tried having MOM make a LIST fur dad to take fur us... BAZASSTAR . HE left our stuffs on the 4-Wheeler. At least you had your WATER Shooter Gun... WE had NOTHING... and it was like 60 FREEZING Degrees.. and we couldn't even SEE our mom.
    OH ANGUS MAC... we FEEL your PAIN Buddy!!!
    We think it is best to eat BEANS and sit in dad's Cliner chair with him... fur OUR Man'sly bonding TIME.

  12. And you never got to use your water pistol once? Rats! Hunting is not all it's cracked up to be.

  13. Our Lady would be the same on hunting. We think Lee would be very good and patient. We think if you got jerky and mountain dew it was a great day! Lee and Phod

  14. Gosh- maybe fishing would work out better. Do you have a fishing pole?

  15. BOL at least you got to spend time with dad. I like your plastic gun and plastic turkey. Sounds like a good day even though dad wasn't as prepared as mom would have been.

    Aroo to you,

  16. Oh.My.Gosh. Angus, you should write a book!

  17. Aww, sorry to hear you guys didn't get a turkey, but goulash is just as delish. I agree with you Gussy. Maybe a frozen turkey would have been just as good!

  18. Hey Gussie! Atleast you got to spend some alone time with dad! I think next time, you should ask your mama to pack some stuff just for you.

    Hugs. Patty

  19. Gussie, I was not at a computer yesterday to comment, but I laughed so hard at your hunting trip. You have such a way with words and I could just picture everything you were saying. Also, I love the way your Mom is always your back up plan when you're getting in hot water. We just love hearing from you, Stella Rose, and Maggie. Don't ever stop posting.

    Janice, Snuggles, Sassy and Dixie

  20. Gussie you might have started out Dads favorite, but I think you might now be his not so favorite. Turkeys are tough birds anyhow!
    Thanks for being a friend
