MANIC MOANDAY…aka THE ANGER OF ANGERS
First, the bad news: we couldn’t enter the show on sunday, because my dad became sick during the night in Angers. He got the runs like crazy and he decided to drive home on sunday morning. We were sad, specially mom, because I was in winner-mood this time, but sometimes things just happen. As we woke up at 6 am – imagine we had the time-change this weekend, so it was just 5 am – we all had pancake-faces and we were dogtired. Seems that our streak of bad luck enjoys our company… But let me tell you what happened:
First we drove with the Elephant Skater to Angers ( my senses warned me in advance, because the name sounds like anger somehow…). As we drove our way on the highway to hell, I claimed a pee-break… mom thought that’s a good idea and joined the pee-crew. Sadly she walks on two legs and so she can’t lift one leg to sign a tree without a crashlanding, so she jumped behind a bush…. as she came back she smelled godawful, because she hit the bullseye with her right hind paw. Sadly her paw sheats have a tread like the labyrinth of the Minos and we really spent 43 minutes before she was ready tro enter the Elephant Skater. And I think SCOOP THAT POOP should count for people too, because that wasn’t a dog…
Then we landed in Angers. Here the anger started: we couldn’t find the hotel. Because: they have 3 with the same name, only the cardinal direction is attached and makes the difference. I think it’s useless to mention that the hotel we booked was the third. Maaan Mr. Bates, that was not really clever….
Butt we were there. Mrs. Bates welcomed me and I mmediately signed the guestbook and ran with a helpless dad on the leash to my room.
Stupidly the rooms were locked by code and the code was in mom’s hand who waddled miles behind us.
Butt at least she only needed 87 tries for the code before I could enter my hotel-crib.
PFFFFFFFFFFFFFF….. maaaaan…. I think even in Alcatraz a jail cell with that dimensions would lead to a revolt. Butt they would be happy about the walls made of parchment paper… like our neighbor next door…. he laughed as my dad answered with “Salut!” to the noises he made with his rear-cheeks . So it was more a HOWLTEL than a hotel.
There was no chance to enter that cubbyhole without jumping on or over the bed. I can do that, dad …more fair to middling. Seems synchronized diving is not our sports. He landed with his cheek on a pole-thingy what they had on the wall as a door stopper. Probably therefore they call it pole
dance vault…Cheeky dad, huh?
Now a chain reaction of bad luck went into motion: while I helped my dad to spell some HBO words for a business mail I saw something on the tree in front of the hole in the wall, what was a little window-like…
I screamed and barked till my dad went out with me for a
hunt walk. Butt guess what? Not only that Mr. Bates built that hotel in the middle of nowhere, he built it even in the middle of RABBITT CITY! Rabbit holes everywhere! And I had no clue which one is the one what leads me directly to the wonderland of Alice. So I ran with mach3 through the whole area, just for being in time when the white rabbit with the clock pops out.
I had tons of fun till my dad changed his color like a chameleon and said we have to go back to my jail cell immediately. With the last of his strength we reached my cell… and there… there was NO BATHROOM!
Oh shit! No toilet, no shower just a washbowl what was a little clogged, probably therefore all installations were visible and free accessible…. Sorry, without a shower room we can’t show you the specialty of Mr. Bates hotel-crib.
Butt back to dad and the curse of the pharaoh… he entered a small thingy what was straight ahead and then behind an edge and what looked like a broom closet for 87 times within the night. That was bad for dad. And for me! Between his sprints to the broom closet I demanded to go
hunting out. I allowed dad to come with me, he anyways hung on the other end of the leash, so, why not. Butt hey, he was such a brake pad…so I thought: DRAGHUNTING? never again! Hunting Score: Squirrels 0, Rabbits 0 – and that for a hunting breed…
At the end it suddenly was 2 am and
suddenlier suddenly it was 6 am and we had to go up. How time flies when we have fun, huh?
Butt anyway, dad said he isn’t able to manage the whole show-circus and after some non serious suggestions …. yes, I’m able do rock a show without the other end of the leash, but I can’t drive a car – my legs are to short to operate the pedals…. we drove home with some breaks.
Dad is on drugs and on the way to visit the dogtor, because it isn’t better by now, mom is on boil for getting nothing than shit on her shoe… and me… I’m on fire to SLEEP in a hotel once… I just was in one, I was to busy to sleep there…
What a disaster….
I HOPE YOU WILL HAVE A MUCH BETTER MONDAY
…. butt after all, tomorrow is not only another day, it’s a new month with new chances and the main thing is we are back in my crib and together.
…. and if you ask me, we won something… an interesting smell on the shoe hahahaha
Hahahahahahah thanks for the laugh
at least we had something for a funny post, even it was not really a good adventure lol
We had to check the date – it isn’t 1st April 😦 How unfortunate can one family be?!
Mom thought the same and next time she said she will visit a show without such skids like dad and me…. a dog show without a dog? could be interesting :o)
OMD Easy, Like AC said, we just can’t believe the bad luck you have, and poor Daddy having the squits xxxoxxxx
Mollie and Alfie
Do you know an exorcist or a ghostbuster? Think we are haunted :o)
I’m sure that there was some evil conspiracy behind this. Wasn’t your dad offered some treats by one of your rival’s wicked staff?
Sadly not, he only had a grand chicago burger at Mc D….. probably Al Claw-pone had his paws in the pie :o)
The staff should be put on bread and water and kept in short leash next time. And you should sleep rather in a tent in the woods.
I agree. Or they have to stay at home next time… that would be the best :o)
Sounds like quite the adventure!!
it was one, but sadly we won no prize and I got no rabbit. But next time we will be better :o)
Uhoh…..well this sounds like an epic fail on all counts! What a shame your Dad got sick, your room didn’t have a bathroom so he could at least have a PRIVATE spot for his agony and you had to be in the middle of a field of rabbits with no chance to hunt! Well, hopefully next time you plan something like this it will work out…….poor Easy….poor Dad…..poor Mom. 😦
Mom said next time she will plan a trip without dad and me…. could be difficult to visit a dog show without a dog…. :o)
OMD Easy you really cracked us up today. Sorry things did not go well at The Bates Hotel. Hope your dad is better today. Maybe next time you visit Anger and Mr Bates you can get some proper hunting in. LOL we are sleepy heads today as well. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly
you should visit that howltel Molly, there was a squirrel tree close to my jail cell… a paradise for a hunting dog, I swear….
woof the was real furrny your poor dadwithoutpaws .. I feel for him.. tell mom withoutpaws that my momwithoutpaws has a book called How To Shit In the woods. Her friend bought it for her when they moved here.
we should copy your mom’s book and place it on the trees of the highway rest areas, the people here need some lessons… or my mom need a “mine detector” lol
Honestly Easy we need a blogville curse lifter….poor dad..is it’s not his finger it’s his bot bot…and you looked so sleek and beautiful in your pictures surely a winner….I have only one theme song for you my friend…’Oh you shitty shitty bang bang shitty shitty bang bang we love you…” hugs and love to you mums poo shoe and poor dad with the travel squits….Fozziemum xx
hahahah that should be the theme of our family circus :o)
but honestly, it was a hell-trip. seems we are haunted and would need an exorcist :o)
Sounds like it my friend…if we find and Exorcist perhaps we can get Fozziedads P.Van cleansed of evil doers as well..that thing gets me everytime…last time it broke down on me I almost set fire to it…I was a little angry bahahaha..hope dad feels better soon 🙂 xxx
oh car trouble is as bad as to sit in a howltel without bathroom while you have the runs… we need a win in the lottery, then we can book a beter hotel and you can get a brandnew polica car :o) think my mom should buy a ticket as long as the “luck” sticks on her shoe :o)
I agree East..Because I am a day ahead I can tell you the winning numbers ..now all we need is a plan bwahahaha…I am off to dream up a scheme now when I wake up it will be sorted 😉
believe it or not, mom once had the same idea… sadly we have different lotteries :o) and my dad said she is a hopeless case…:o)
Dang..woke up and realised the plan was doomed from the start….;) xxx
I hope your Dad is on the mend- what an awful situation! How could a room have no toilet? That Mrs. Bates is something else. Well, as the saying goes, there’s no place like home.
The dogtor gave him some drugs, hope he feels better soon. I was puzzled too, I thought hotels without a bathroom are history in 21th century :o)
Now that it is over it is quite amusing! What an awful place and a terrible time you had. Hope your next trip goes better!
I hope so, Emma. Mom is very sad that we missed the event and that we had such a horrible night. I’m more sad that I couldn’t get one of the rabbits :o)
Oh Dog brother! I thought my weekend had some glitches in it. Butt you, you had the worstest of lucks. I have not been in a hotel in all my 14 years. Maybe it is for the best. Hope you dad gets all better soon soon.
Brother I agree with you – better never in a hotel than stranded in a HOWLtel like that. And that I couldn’t catch such a squirrel or a rabbit is bad too :o)
What a terrible time you were having at Bates Motel, at least there wasn’t anyone going around killing peeps or doggies like that movie! You really made me laugh, I guess sometimes the worst vacations are the best because its so bad its funny, I know my Mum had a few like that before I was born, now I demand 5 star lodging and lots of room to roam as this puggy must be treated like royalty, I suggest that you demand the same Easy! Love and licks from your furiend Frank xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Frank, you’re right. It was like sleeping in a post box…. and the worst was, that the weather changed and it was as hot as in hell suddenly too :o)
Easy you do make me laugh 🙂 Your poor dad wish him well xx
Thanks :o) in worst case we open the bottle with champagne we had in the fridge in case we would have something to clebrate. (sadly not really lol) Butt he can use the cork :o)
So true would it have been strong enough LOL
it was all the towns fault – with a name like that you just know things are going to go wrong and that hotel room – we have stayed in some pretty small places but that one – yikes!
Oh that can be the reason! You’re right! You can’t have a great time in a city named Angers. That’s the same as to expect fun in Boring, OH or to hope for fresh air in Fart, VA :o)
Bwaa!!! Haa!!! Haaa!!! Your tail er tale had coffee coming out Mommy’s nose! Good thing she was still in her bathrobe and NOT in her new work clothes!!!
PS wes hopes your Daddy is better soon and your Mommy’s shoe quits stinking!
Thanks Nellie. I hope we can solve both “stinky” problems :o) I have hope for dad, but the shoe …hmmm…I don’t know :o)
oh brother. I will have to show this mommy when she gets home tonight. I’ll have to make sure she is settled because I know she will bust a gut. Me and daddy are rolling here with laughter. I tell you – *we* are all so related. Your parents have got to be related to my mom/dad. No doubting it whatsoever at this point. Have a better Monday. XOXO – Bacon
thanks brother :o) That was really the proof that “shit happens” is the best quote ever lol
Yes it is. Snorts. So very true. XOXO – Bacon
If I’d had a bad weekend, I’d feel much better after reading this (and I hope Dad is feeling better, too.) Fortunately, I had a great weekend and my Monday’s off to a wonderful start as well. Hope your week is all good!
thanks :o) I hope with a new month tomorrow even our streak of bad luck will be over :o) if you book a hotel for your trip, please have an eye on the description. I had no clue that they really have new hotels without bathrooms :o)
Great idea! 🙂
Easy always an adventure with you all. Your poor dad. Hope the doctor makes him better. Maybe your mom can give that shoe like 95 abillion washes to get the stink out. Too bad you didn’t find the white rabbit, THAT would have been a grander adventure!
I agree Marty :o) Dad feels a little better, but the shoe is still stinky. the worst is that we still have to wait for our new washer…. sometimes it is like haunted :o)
OMC it still isn’t here? Our mom broke her’s for 2 weeks and thank Bast the repair man got it fixed on Friday. Mom has been doing laundry non stop since then. Hope your’s gets here soon! The curse has to lift soon or we need to call New Orleans and have a someone come do a VooDoo curse reverse on you guys!
Oh please call New Orleans and the Ghostbusters lol :o) They said the will bring the new washer on friday the 28th….by now we have to wait till they give us another information… mom never thought that she would miss to do the laundry…
Quite the adventure you had there. Glad the Bates family let you check out! Hope pops feels better.
Oh, boy! you’re right…maybe they only pick the people of the room what have shower rooms? so glad we had none lol
EASY WE ARE SO VERY SORRY ABOUT YOUR DAD. THERE IS A NASTY TUMMY BUG HERE TOO. LAST MONDAY, 3/24, IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE NIGHT MY DAD ALSO AWOKE TO THE PLAGUE. DEAR ME IT WAS BEAR OF ONE TOO. HIS TUMMY JUST GOT NORMAL THIS PAST SATURDAY. MOM SOMEHOW STAYED WELL
HUGS MADI YOUR BFFF
maybe the tummy bug crossed the big pond? at least your poor dad had a bathroom :o) my dad said that’s like comedy… we book a room without a bathroom and he got the runs….
You wouldn’t have won at the dog show anyway, I heard that the judges were paid off. You can’t trust them poooodulls.
oh really? wow, so it was good we missed that thingy…and a dad with a tummy bug on the other end of the leash is not really a guarantor to be best in show :o)
Easy we are SO sorry that you did not get a chance to do the Judgementals thingy… we are SURE you would have won FURST PLACE… since WE think you ARE a total WINNER..
Buddy we just do NOT know Where or HOW to begin talking about THAT weekend from HELL. We will sum it up by saying it was totally SHITTY.
I agree :o) it was the proof that shit can happen lol. Butt after the show is always before the show, next time we can make it better ( I hope)
We wanted to say THIS in a CLEAN… comment thingy…
We hope that your dad is feeling MUCH better NOW. Our paws are crossed fur him.
Please tell him that we are Sorry that his Poop Shooter went WILD… like 87 times.
hahahahaha that’s pawfect, a wild poop shooter lol
BOL! BOL! Easy, if what you say is true, then mom had human poop on her shoe and that, my friend, is disgusting! Scoop That Poop is right! Holy crap…literally. So mom steps in poop and then dad has the poops all night?!? What was that about? Did he eat the magic rabbit or something similar that made his innards turn outwards? What a night in the closet that must have been. Dear dawg. It sounds like the adventure of a lifetime, if you ask me.
Oz, it was a weekend full of poop, no wonder that we were pooped out on sunday. Dad just had a burger ( maybe it was made wit rabbits?) and I wish we had a big bag for that haunted weekend to put it away :o)
Now I’m going to be singing “Manic Monday” for the rest of the day………..lol
Dang, that is not fun at all…except for the squirrel part!
and I wasn’t able to catch that brown thingy what was running around on the tree…. what a bad weekend :o)
Oh my Lord and we thought our weekend was manic….
there is sometimes no limit for haunted days…. but with all the trouble I think we deserve it that some good things will happen to us now :o)
OMG…we can’t help but feel soooooooooo bad for your poor Dad! I agree with others, you sure have the craziest adventures!
thanks, he feels a little better now :o) I wish we could do one thing without mischief, seems we really need an exorcist :o)
I am so sorry Easy you didn’t get to win or even be in your show b/c you would have won!!
Maybe I really had the chance to win or to get a prize :o) but to survive the night at this hotel is a win too :o)
Oh Easy, that does not sound like fun! What a mess and your poor Dad getting sick. EEK. Things can only look up from there right?
Oh noes, what a time you guys had
that was really a hell-weekend, Misaki. Next time visit Crufts, than we will get a better hotel :o)
What a Moanday! Maybe an early April Fool? BUTT no fun for you or your peeps esp. dad. We hope all is well soon and least you caught a whiff of an early Easter bunny?
Dad feels better and the poor shoes are clean now too. Sadly I only saw the entrances of rabbit city but no easter bunny… maybe he was busy with coloring the eggs?
What an awful hotel. Did you know they have hotels just for doggies? Hit up Mum and Dad for that next time.
I will look for such a hotel, the staff can spend the night in the car, it’s the same than the last hotel. but wait, it’s better, they have the water of the windscreen washer system for a shower lol
Aw Easy, what a bummer! They really don’t have toilets in the room? What the heck?
We were shocked too, I had no clue that they still build hotels without bathrooms. And for dad it was the worst what could happen :o)
Easy you gave me chills and willies with this one. Get out of there!!! Be careful, be safe and ruuuuuuuuuun
hahaha I agree, I was running around the whole night, but the best thing would be to run away from this howltel :o)
Holy crap Easy! a weekend like that we guess all you can do is laugh it off and hope for a better next time. Can’t believe their was no bathroom in your cell, not good for your Dad’s situation.
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Greta
Mom says to tell you “it’s a date”! she would love to dance with you!
I agree, it’s the best to laugh and to try to make it better next time (or to top it, but that could be difficult lol)
But hey, now I’m the first one who has a date for the next ball – that’s GREAT!
What a bummer of a first hotel stay! You didn’t even get to be worshipped as the King of the Hotel Lobby, as you well deserve. Crap! Literally and figuratively.
Love and licks,
I agree :o) Shit happens is probably not just a quote, it really can happen on many ways lol
Always carry a baggie to put sh__ in…………including sh—covered shoes in a pinch. Baby wipes …….OMG, you poor thing. Your Mom’s shoe was not perfumed with something other than called for a gag-bucket. Too bad things turned out in the way they did, but that is life. Just when you are ready to show the world what you are made of along come shooting-pooh curse. Well, no rabbits, no squirrels, and no titles today. April Fools came early…….I am proud of how you handled this misfortune.
I wasn’t sure how I should write this post, it really sounds like an April Fool’s joke. Maybe all those bad things were signs to cancel this show. who knows what had happen there if we are anyway haunted by bad luck :o)
You are a star; I cannot believe the bad luck caught up with you. It was a shooting-pooh, step in the pooh, kind of experience. At least, the bad taste in the mouth was not pooh topped. I have had flying pooh hit my lip. That is no April Fool’s joke either. Accidents happen. I think it takes time to succeed. There are few opportunities to visit these venues. It makes it super difficult for the novice.
h wow, that’s really bad…. so we can be glad it was just the shoe ( and a little her dignity). Mom said, there is always a next time where we can make it better :o)
Yeah…….a Weimi didn’t mean to flip the pooh on my lip, but I caught there. LOL……….you will continue to learn, and improve. It is all good.
Hope your Dad is feeling better Easy. That trip sounded like our cruise from hell. Never going to do a cruise again. Sorry you didn’t make the show!
A cruise from hell is the worst, because you can’t leave that place when you dislike it. To stay on a hell-ship is much worse than just a hell-howltel, I’m sure. I hope we can enter the next show, mom said anyway next time she will do it alone… not sure how she will rock a dog show without a dog :o)
Easy, Easy, Easy I am laughing so hard my lungs hurt. Human shit on her shoe. That room, no closet, I have never in my life seen a room so small and no bathroom. Why did you ask them for money, they owe you for staying there. I always wanted to visit France like Paris in the springtime but from what you have showed me I think I will save my money and stay home.
Thanks for being a friend
Sweet William The Scot
William, it was really a bad Howltel and even for a budget-place it was bad. But the staff was in a hotel near Paris once what was just fabulous. It had a bathroom and real rooms and the best was, that they had an outlet-city directly next to the hotel….mom spent more time there than in Paris :o)
Squirrel! Rabbit event. Well, for someone it was a great location and a great tale. Hope Dad is feeling so much better now
He feels better now, the meds of the dogtor were helpful… so I think we could visit the Howltel again hahahahaha
Oh dear, the weekend from hell!!! Easy, you need to come here for a weekend – we promise you there is no shortage of rabbits to be found:)
Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning
Oh wow, really? That would be the bestest trophy I ever got :o)
Poor Easy and dad. We hope your dad feels better soon and you get to sleep in a hotel again soon.
Millie & Walter
Thanks :o) I hope once we can visit a real HOTEL and not a HOWLtel like that. Maybe I can stay alone in a real first class hotel … I read a dog is just 25 bucks per night and a biped 250… so I think my staff has to stay at home or in the car :o)
Oh I am very mean because I laughed my head off. Your experience was nothing like I thought it would be. Poor Mum and Dad. I hope Dad does not have anything serious.
Laughed especially about you not sleeping in the hotel because of all the rushing out side! The hotel had an outside bathroom?????OMG!!!!
They really had small cabins in the hallway. two toilets and one showerroom for every floor. Fortunately my dad hasn’t to wait to enter that cabin….imagine that… OMG :o)
Wow, that sounds like a particularly rotten trip! I hope your Dad feels better soon. I have to agree with gentlestitches because I got a pretty good laugh about this too. What a horrible hotel from hell! At least you got to bark at a squirrel…that’s worth a lot! BOL
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, Pol Comm
I agree Sarge. And to catch such a squirrel or a rabbit would be anyway the best trophy ever :o)
OMD the road trip from hell! So much for a romantic France! Mom & her best friend drove from Nice to Paris and had to find a place to stay. They saw a billboard for a motel in St. Etiennes(?) but couldn’t find it once they got off the highway. Her friend went into a drug store to find help. Two women had us follow them in their car & showed them the way to the motel. It wasn’t as bad as yours but definitely a budget place! Love Dolly
Sometimes you can find really nice people – even in France lol. Maybe it was a broad hint that we couldn’t find Mr.Bates Howltel and we better should follow such hints in future :o)
Oh my dog Easy, your adventures are the best. Your poor family, I think you have the dog show curse. All that you do and you don’t get to get in the ring. So sorry the trip was bad. And what’s up with no toilets? Really? That slays me. I hope you have a better week bud.
We were puzzled too as we noticed the “no toilet”-fact. I would accept that if we would live in medieval :o) How sad that we missed the show, but 6 hours between a gazillion of dogs was to much for my dad :o) But next time we can make it better :o)
Hahaa you make the worst situations sound like a cartoon with silly music behind it! x’D
yes, they should play the theme of Psycho in the background lol… but, no, wait there was NO shower room, so maybe Straight to hell by the Clash :o)

Thats too bad about about your dad, Easy! But you guys still seemed to have a great time while it lasted, even if you didn’t get to do the show!
Wow, sweet Easy that was terrible!! All that happened and you didn’t get to do the show and got no rabbit or squirrel? We are sorry about your dad and we hope he is all better by now. We so LOVE to hear you tell of your adventures and your everyday life. You always make us laugh. Hugs and nose kisses
It doesn’t sound as though any of you got any sleep! I hope your dad is feeling better now.
