Because Oscar and Lucy travel so much — and because they are thoroughly modern terriers — many of their buddies are actually on-line. But just because we haven’t romped with them in real-time doesn’t mean they aren’t part of our pack. We meet our pals in a number of Facebook forums dedicated to Smooth Fox Terriers and those who serve them. Or they are terriers who stopped by this blog for some virtual bum sniffing. Doesn’t matter how they joined the Left Coast Cowboys Virtual Dogpark, all our Cyber-Terrier pals prove, it’s a Smooth Fox Terrier World and the rest of us just live in it.
First I’d like to introduce you to a new member of the pack, Moonie AKA Moonchops, Moonface, Moonster, Monster, Moonertron and, for unknown reasons, Woogles. (Pretty standard. Are there any Smooth Fox Terriers out there who DON’T have a dozen nicknames?) Moonie is served by Tom, a photographer in Oxfordshire, England. We met via Google as the search term “Smooth Fox Terrier handsome boy” brings up this blog and Tom’s, where he runs the Handsome Boy Modeling School.
Moonie earned inclusion in the pack because he has a passport and does travel – most recently on road trip to the French wine region of Languedoc Rousillon. Tom notes that Moonie’s ears smell of chocolate crepes. As you know we tackled the issue of sweet smelling Smooth Fox Terrier ears in this post where we also reviewed the Citizen Kane of all Smooth Fox Terrier movies.
Next we move to another relatively new member who we met through the I Love Smooth Fox Terriers Facebook page. It’s Mozzie from Ohio, who is served by Barbara and Steven.
Yes, butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. But, we hear through the Facebook that Barbara is seeking some terrier behavior modification advice. Which Oscar and Lucy would tell Mozzie shows a decided laxness in her ability to train her owners. However, since Mozzie is also sometimes called The Mozzinator, we feel she will soon get this situation in hand (or paw).
Anyone who frequents the “I Love Smooth Hair Fox Terriers” Facebook page is familiar with one of our exciting new members.
Cheetos is a constant source of hilarity and, luckily, his personal assistant Roger, is usually in place with a camera and a Facebook post to capture it. One of Cheetos major occupations is squirrel hunting.
Also known as Cheesy Toes, Cheetos’ other talents include his Flying Nun ear impression and perching on his servant’s shoulder like a parrot. Cheetos is loaded with ‘Tude and has taught Oscar this signature stare.
The next members of the Virtual Dogpark are…a Pack. And long-standing members. Three Smooth Fox Terriers and a Dachshund from Memphis who are served by Susan. Yes, there is a Dachshund, but Britta is one of of the Long Ones who convinced us to extend the noble Smooth Fox Terrier family to include the honorary terriers now known as Smooth Dachs Terriers. I know I’ve seen a picture of this pack all together — which would be a minor miracle of photography judging by how hard it is to get Oscar and Lucy to sit still together for a portrait.
That’s our review of some notable members of the Left Coast Cowboys Virtual Dogpark. If you are owned by a wine-friendly, traveling, tech savvy canine that you think would enjoy romping in Cyberspace. Drop us a line and some pictures to lisa@leftcoastcowboys. Our pack is ever growing and we’ll be updating on a regular basis.
