Baby Wheeley Wescoo

It all stawted in a bootiful delivewy woom at Snitchybug hospital. A dastawdly Wheeleynapping.
It was only a few days ago, but it seems like fuwwevew to a wowwied Dad and a distwaught Mommi..theiwy baby boy was wheeleynapped befowe they even saw him and then came a fwightening note :

After that eerie ransom note, there is no doubt that this was a malicious act, and not a simple misguided stork delivery.

We awe extwemely fowtoonate that we have some of the bestest fwiends anyone could ask fow..the lettews of love and concewn wewe too noomewous to count, but hewe is a sampling and an update on what was being done:

"Sweetpea Astaroni! I am shocked and sad! I am at your service.

Whatever I can do to help,

Stella and I will do whatever we can. What's been done so far? Do we need to get Joe Stains, Private Eye, on the case? Have you ever seen the Mel Gibson movie, "Ransom?" I'm seriously thinking of doing what he did in that movie. Since he had all the money he needed he decided not to pay the ransom but to put a bounty on the heads of the kidnappers saying he'd pay anyone who brought them in dead or alive. He would only call of the bounty hunters if his son was returned to him unharmed within a certain period of time. What do you think? Should we be this bold and go this route? I'll trust your instincts on this (after you consult with Myrna and Gilbert). Just let me know. I'm going to help bankroll Joe Stains while he's on the case. I also offered to supply him steaming piles of poo if he needs any to send to different folks who are involved."

All my Goober love & smooches to you, Myrna, Gilbert, Grandmommi & Grandaddi, Your Stanley

Detective Joe Stains immediately donned his twench coat and got busy investigating. I quote: "I am hard at work trying to find that wheely baby. "

Jake and Fewgie who awe on vacation wewe tewwowized by the sight of this biwd,

"We saw one of those dastardly birds (but no baby wheelie) on our walk tonight. We've got mug shots of him. A profile. And one in flight.That big scary bird that came flying out from under the bridge last night scared us. A lot. And then you said they are armed and dangerous. We're too afraid to walk over that bridge tonight, cuz we waited too long and it's dark now. You might want to tell H.C. Bird that he might get more information from the birds up in north Florida. He knows PCB, I think. That's where we saw the dastardly thing. We'll be glad when this is all over with and everyone is safe and not scared anymore. In the meantime, ice cream might help."

and my BFF Lacie who has done the ultimate to twy to find my Nephew "I've been busy under the covers with TMBTC...(too many birds to count)...honestly I had no idea I was allergic to feathers...and their choice of entrees at the best restaurants leaves loads to be desired...I just don't do raw fish and worms....this is truly a sacrifice...talk to ya soonest my sweet girlie..."
"Asta...I've so been sacrificing my body to find the baby.... I've been under the covers all weekend and finally plucked the feathers of the dismal creatures to see if they'd hidden Baby under them.... It's a thankless job...." Laciegirliebird

Jake and Just Hawwy
even spent pawt of theiw fathew's day looking

and theiw wheeley countewpawts

Professor Jacques Maigret and Inspector Justin Herkimer Clouseau awe currently off helping H.C. Bird look for the stolen wheelie baby). We've been getting reports from H.C. Bird. A Wondewful fwiend and in NO WAY involved in this dastawdly deed!
He has flown up to Central Florida to see if he can learn anything there around the lakes where some of the other long-legged water birds like to roost and gossip.

Mango welentlessly hooge said if he sees the baby dwopped in his yawd he's let me know. ( I guess he's not willing to move about too much, hehehehe)
Agatha and Awchie, Martha and Bailey , Bustew,Ms Pewsephone and Ms Blue have theiw shawp eyes peeled fow flying wheelies.
Gus Louie and Callie suggested we call the dog police..but that's just too dangewous
Pughy the bootiful kitty fwom acwoss the pond voluteewed as did Socks ,Scylla and Chawybdis and theiw woffie bwuvvew Fenris, Daisy the cuwly cat, all five of the Taylow catsssss, and all Tazo and all the fuwwy kids

They've been angwy because Butchy and Snickers wewe doing such a tewwific job guawding the Koi, that they decided to kidnap Mywna's baby boy .

Joe Stains, made contact wif the dastawdly duo and awwanged to pay them the wansom.
( the pawpetwatows wanted a bag of Koi...)

instead they got a hooge bag of steaming poop and a piece of Stanley's mind on evew twying something like this again

while the biwds wewe busy wif the supposed wansom exchange, the wescooews wewe aweady closing in on the hideout

Butchy and Scwuffy wewe fiwst to weach the twee and see the baby

then Just Hawwy and Joey managed to get close enuff to gwab him

Awchie almost fainted as he cawwied the twembling baby boy wheeley to safety

Mywna and Gilbert have asked me to thank all of you fow youw help..we couldn't have done it wifout any of you.

The Kwoonsky-Kweit family awe snuggling togethew safely at home, and will send pictoowes soon.

Fow now, they would like a little time alone.

smoochie kisses

Those stinkin birds!! I certainly hope they learned their lessons because I can produce a stinky bag of poo faster than you can say Pizza with Bacon! I am so glad we were able to rescue the baby, does he have a name yet?? This is the toughest case I have ever worked on but it was also the most important!! I can't wait to see the family photos!!

We are so relieved that you your little family to back together again. Our Mom was really frightened of those creepy birds. We know what they try to do to the bluebird babies sometime and we absolutely hate that!!

Have a wonderful Wheelie Wednesday.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Asta...we were on the edge of our seats readin' this....I had NO IDEA Scruffy was involved in the rescue...did ya tell him there might be a tennis ball stuck up in that twee??? That woulda got him up there lickety split...

And Stanley...sacrificing a bag of valuable goober poo...still hot nonetheless....we're in awe!!!

Frankly, I'm going to spend the tail tryin' to get the sticks outta my fur...and soak in a scented bath to remove the bird stench...those herons haven't bathed in years...

Love you lots sweet girlie!

Kelly said...

Oh Asta, I have been losing sleep over this! Those EVIL birds have gone too far! I am beginning to wonder if they may also have something to do with the seizure monster?!

You have excellent friends to come to Myrna & Gilbert's rescue! What a miracle!!!


The Oceanside Animals said...

Glad the family is back together again! We have birds like this around here and they are always stealing things, like fish right away from the dolphins at Sea World!

doyle and mollie said...

thank dogness it has all turned out ok the bravery for the rescue was admirable - maybe the wee baby should be named lucky

TwoSpecialWires said...

We are so very relieved that a happy and safe ending has come to this saga. Those two wheeley babies have to be the cutest we've ever seen. (They're SO cute they've added to Moma's recent rekindling of her "wanna have a wheeley" desires. We're so glad they are home where they ought to be. Surrounded by love. Rest and enjoy them now. (And we'll get back to enjoying our evening walkies without getting the poo scared out of us each time we pass the footbridge.)

Dexter said...

What an exciting rescue story. When I saw the wheelie baby in the tree I laughed to hard, whoops, I mean I cheered at the bravery of the rescue team.

I hope that they did not hurt the little thing too much.


P.S. I think I pee'd a little when I saw Stanny's fierce face. Yikes!

Lorenza said...

Hi Asta. Big, big story with a good ending! Also wanted to stop by to thank you for visiting with me again. I hope to be able to show you more of Australia over the coming months...perhaps not as exciting as yours, but I try...hee! hee! Love from Colin Harries xx

Lucia said...

Ciao bella Asta!

Sannnnta vacccccca ... that is where I, Lucia, was born ...!!!! Now I wonder -- was I really born there or did those two evil birdies steal me away from somewhere else and bring me there????? I have a big, big headache now just thinking about this and will have to confer with la mia ragazza to try to get to the truth.

All that self-doubt aside, I am thrilled at the fantastico, eccellente news about the discovery of Myrna and Gilbert's bambino ... now they're all reunited as a famiglia!!! Yayyyyy!!

Tanti baci!

Jake of Florida said...


Wheelie lookalikes Jacques Maigret and JH Clouseau have said they'd be honored to be godfathers to your niece and nephews -- and have actually sent their own message on yur cbox. They were a bit concerned, however, that they might have to date the Laciegirl -- please reassure them that they can retain their European dignity.

Your wirey pal,

The Cat Realm said...

Oh My!!! A whole CCSI story in one post, almost.... that was like a CCSI mystery, and we are glad we only came now when it was already safely ended! We had no idea that heron flew off with the baby - so we are glad to know that all ended well!
What a post, Asta, such great work!!!

I love happy endings!

PeeEssWoo: Now fur Laska!

Stanley said...

Sweet ASta!

Joe did SUCH a good job, and Archie & Scruffy and everydog else who helped were in valuable to the rescue effort. I don't think those birds will be doing ANYthing very worthwhile for a LONG time. They're in the pokey where they belong.

Please give Myrna a sweet hug and some goob smooches. Tell Gilbert that I'll come by later to see him, and YOU, my sweetpea, you take all of the rest of my juicy goob smooches and smother yourself and your mommi in them. You've been so brave, but now you can relax!

Can you believe that we have a PIGGY neighbor now?! I hope I get to meet her soon. She looks like she'd be fun to rub against if I had an itch.

Goober love & smooches,
