Platypus and Fox

Bentley::  “Friends, I am here today to tell you about a mischievous murder that happened right inside my home.  Some of you may remember back in March when we received a Skinneeez Platypus in our PetBox It was one of the best toys ever.  Patty, as I affectionately called her, was my favorite toy.  I speak of her in past tense due to an unbarkable crime.  I hate to make it sound like Pierre is to blame, but it is all his fault."
Pierre: “You can’t prove that I had anything to do Miss Patty’s sudden demise.  In my opinion, she has been looking pretty frail for the past few weeks.  I’m surprised that she lasted this long.  The poor platypus never had an ounce of stuffing in her.  I think she just withered away.  It’s so sad.”

Bentley: “You've been trying to kill Patty Platy since she moved in with us.  She was a great toy; I’m going to miss her.  Bless her heart."

Pierre: “Look Bentley!  It’s a brand new Skinneeez Fox!  The toy fairy must have felt sorry for you.  Let me check it out for you.”

Bentley: “YES, a fox!  I’m going to love her and care for her, and call her Shirley.  You can hold her, but be careful.  Her squeakers are very fragile.”

 Pierre: “Oh my gracious.  Shirley is soft.  I must bite her very hard.”

Bentley: “Did he hurt you? Squeak to me!”

Pierre: “Tell me again what the fox says.  It sounds like Acckkk!"

Bentley: "Don’t worry, you're safe with me.  I'll put you in my special toy hiding place.  Pierre will never find you there."  

Pierre: “You'll never believe where I found Shirley the Fox. I was checking out your secret hiding place and surprise!  Do you see how she stuck her tail in my mouth?  I was just bringing her back to you. I think she is going to be trouble.”

Bentley: “That does it!  I’m taking my new Skinneeez Shirley Fox and going to my room.  Don’t follow me until you can play nice." 

    Bentley: "Just so you know, we were not compensated in any manner for endorsing Skinneeez Toys.  Mom paid for our Fox, because Pierre and I love this brand of toy.

You are the best son in the world.” ☺ ♥

  5. OMD someone call CSI! RIP Miss Patty. Happy birthday to Dustin. We hope he had a swell day of it. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Happy Birthday, Dustin! You sure look young for 26! Bummer with the toys, but Bailie has destroyed most of our toys. The stuffingless ones usually get ripped to pieces more than ones with stuffing. Kids these days!

  7. BOL! Looks like you need to find another secret hiding place! Great photos!!


    OMD WE would think that Patty was just becoming PLAYABLE... all the WORK has been done... like ripping out her GUTS and Killing her Beating Squeaker.. THEN the FUN begins. Ernie likes to HIDE toys... and to FOLD them.

  9. LOL Great story (and poor Shirley!)

  10. "Squeak to me"...BOL! Now that was a funny little story, Bentley. Loved it! Happy Monday.

  11. The new fox looks like a lot of fun!!

  12. One of Dweebs favorite toys but Mom gave up after he destroyed the fifth one the day he got it :)

  13. First of all, admit nothing without video . . . and we're talking HD video not that blurry mess the banks use. And we have that very same fox and we can testify in court that if he gets a tear it is the fox's fault and not yours!! Oh, and Happy Birfday to Dustin too!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  14. Happy Birthday to Dustin!!!!
    I love your chalk outline! Very creative!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  15. We love being high on the food chain.

  16. We would love that toy but I rip toys to shreds and ingest them. No stuffies, even thin ones for us. Oh well. You guys had a very cute dialogue about the stuffy!

    Livvie from

  17. Wow, sounds like Patty just wasn't built for the long-haul! BOL Maybe Shirley will have better luck. Darn, they just don't make these toys strong enough...maybe they need MORE stuffing and MORE squeakers. Yeah, that's it! BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Pol Commish

  18. We hope you can keep Shirley from Pierre's jaws of doom.

  19. OMD, that Patty look exactly like my stuffy toys after Vaks had said hello to them. Bentley if you find a way to protect those poor stuffed toys, please let me know :-D

  20. Hummmmmmm, destroying the others toys, not good, Me and Sus leave each others things alone!

    The Mad Scots

  21. Oh no! Poor, poor Patty! I am so very sorry for the loss of your buddy...but Shirley sure seems like a fun gal! And hey...she looks super familar...I'm pretty darn sure that I've had at least TWO of her family members live here with me!

  22. Great Story! My heart goes out to the Platypus....

  23. That's a lot of serious mischief that's going on in your pad guys! Maybe you might need a security camera to work out who the murderer is?

    I hope the fox is gonna be ok, good luck foxy!

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  24. Great post! I love this story line! Poor Playpus, I hope Bentley can keep little foxy safe from Pierre. And Happy Birthday to Dustin - 26 is a very good age to be!
    Love & Biscuits,
    Cathy, Isis & Phoebe

  25. Love that story. You made us smile real big with "Squeak to me!" :)

    Happy birthday to Dustin!

  26. We have a Skineez Flamingo and I love her! I keep her hidden where Flattery can't find her, as well. I feel your pain, Bentley!


  27. hahaha squeak to me. Glory had fun playing with her fox this weekend too. Happy Birthday to your son, what a cute photo.

  28. Happy Birthday Dustin. I think you need to hide that toy Bentley.

  29. I have these on my list of toys to try, but I fear they will meet the same demise as Patty in this household.....
