MMTPT225 ~ November 19, 2012 ~ A Pox on that Destructive Fox!
WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY MMTPT225 AND
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
A pox on that destructive fox. November 20, 2012
Meet the Fab Five: Liam, Paco, Sadie, Bubba and Contessa.
These terriers couldn’t be merrier when they’re on the trail of a known pest.
If your garden is raided, call the dogs that are dedicated to prevent your crops and plants from being eaten.
A Jack Russell’s devotion can’t be beaten. We’ll sniff him out and hunt him down whether through the country or town.
We love to go to ground, unlike a tall sight hound.
We’re bred to go down a hole because varmint eradication is our goal.
If we get mucky don’t make a fuss, dirt and mud don’t bother us.
You say a fox has trampled your fescue?
We’ll be right there; we’ll come to your rescue. He’s trodden the flowers and eaten the veg! There he is hiding under that hedge.
We’re hunting dogs born and bred.
We love to chase foxes whether gray or red.
He may be foxy, but we’ve got moxie.
He’s bolted, after him, hurry!
that reddish nuisance that is furry.
The terriers all were hot on the heels
of their prey with incomparable zeal.
We’ve tracked him to town
now we’ve got to wait for him to come down.
The roof of a tea room is now his perch.
Ha, he thinks he’s left us in the lurch.
Being English you see,
we’d love to stop for a spot of tea.
The Fox & Terrier Tea Room is under our watchful eyes.
When Mr. Fox comes down we’ll give him a surprise.
He can bask up on top of the Tea Room’s roof, but when he comes down we’ll make him disappear in a poof!
Bring dogs, flower gardens and vegetable gardens.
If you bring a fox you have to come in the back door.
Get Well Soon is NOT an appropriate sentiment if you choose to mail your card to the Destination Station recipient, George.
Without the surgery George has been given 6 - 20 months to live.
EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES (EPEC):
Bring a Jack Russell terrier
This week our destination is Meadowbrook, PA. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to George? George was brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter Fran (philsmom). Some of you may know that Fran is an avid lover of Jack Russell doggies! Fran's friend, George is also a Jack Russell lover, owner and a breeder. He has also battled cancer and was given the all clear last year. However, upon reexamination in October of this year, the doctors determined that the all clear given was in error. As of this writing, George has opted to have surgery, a very risky one requiring months of recuperation away from his home and his dogs.
For more information as well as the address to mail your card to please visit Post #324 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station Thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!
Here is a link to my card.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT225 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!
Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Cindy (Mothermark) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!
