This is a stick up!!!!

Oh my goodness every-bullie, where do we begin??

Flat Papster's new motto~~PAR-TAAYY!! That boy has been into all sorts of things down in the birthplace of 3D Papster! You thought that St. Paddy's Day Party was wild, just wait until you finish reading this post, that was NOTHING! And DawgMom was laughin about it! Now if I had been up to all this mischief, I would have been in Big Time-Out!

After his St. Paddy's Day shenanigans, he wanted to go Honky-Tonking, I mean he IS in Nashville, so why not Honky-Tonk? But first he had to go to work with Mama Vicki, she works at the money store.

He went to the Wild Horse Saloon

Then to the Buck Wild Saloon,

He couldn't miss the Hard Rock Cafe for a little bit of rock and roll!

He even sang back up for the King!

He went carousing around the Charlie Daniels Museum, guess he thought he should get a little education while he was there??

All that beer made him have to tee-tee real bad, so he headed out to the Parthenon to take care of business

Then went right back to singing with Mr. TCB himself, the King!

He made sure he hit up all the world famous spots, even found Tootsie's

Well, then he decided to pay homage to the Grand Ol' Opry & went to visit the Ryman.

Well, after all that carousin & bar-hoppin & singin, he musta run out of money, so the story goes he got on the phone with 3D Papster's half-sister, TraceyBelle to ask her some questions. For those that don't know, when TraceyBelle was little, she robbed the money store that Mama Vicki works for!! Flat Papster needed some info on how to do that since he ran out of money & I guess she told him how to pull it off!!

That's right folks, those Natchez Sirius kids have a bit of a Jesse James streak in them, we've tried to keep it under wraps, but some things just have a way of getting out. The Flat Papster did indeed ROB THE MONEY STORE!! He even wore a mask!!
His adventure didn't last long, they put out a BOLO on him (not Bolo our Shar-Pei friend, the other kind of BOLO) and Nashville PD was on top of it real quick!
Thank goodness Mama Vicki came to bail him out, he has lots of other places to visit. His excuse was he was robbing the money store to get more money for rescue, we're not so sure that it wasn't a little bit of both, rescue money and beer money. Guess we will never know. At any rate, after all those shenanigans, he went back for a much needed rest with 3D Papster's mama, China Doll.
Next stop~~Gimli in CT and let me tell you, Mr. Gimli has been known to be a ring leader of chaos at times, so no telling what they will get into. Hope DawgAunt Helen & her boys keep a close eye on those two.
Until next time.....

Letters from the Globe-trotting Flat Boy

Hello every-bullie! DawgMom here! I thought rather than just tell you about Flat Papster's adventures in the Land of Oz, I would just post his emails so you can read all about it in his own words.........

(With his new friends, Dash & Annie)
Email Number One:

G'day DawgMum!! Guess who? Yep, it's me... Flat Papster, woof, woof, and guess where I am? Give up? I'm at DawgUncle John and DawgAunt Sandie's farm at Moto... way, way over here at Orstraya!! I just arrived today and already I've been to visit DawgAunt Sandie's Mum and Dad (oh yeah, did ya know they say "mum" over here instead of "mom"?). We didn't take any photos at DawgAuntie Peggy and DawgUncle Ray's house 'cause DawgAunt Sandie didn't have her camera... she didn't know I'd arrived 'til she was driving out of her gates and found me hanging around her mailbox!!

But DawgAunt Sandie says not to worry 'cause they'll be taking me to a couple of places on the weekend where she can take some speshul photos to send y'all!

I think I'll like my little holiday here. There are two doggies called Dash and Annie, and a cat called Thomas... Dash and Annie seem to like him, even though he's a CAT! Can you believe that... doggies likin' a CAT, for goodness sake. But I reckon ol' Tom had better watch hisself now that The Papster's in town!!

And guess what else they got here? A whole lotta big cows and some liddle baby cows. Boy oh boy, a bully could sure have some fun chasin' that lot around!! And there's two big horseys too.

Anyway DawgMum (I think I oughta call you that while I'm over here, OK?), look out for some photos comin' thru in a coupla days. I'm gunna have a bit of rest now 'cause it was a long, long trip to get here ya know... it took me a whole 8 or 9 days! PHEW... fair dinkum, I'm dog-tired now, I can tell ya!

DawgAuntie Sandie says g'day to everyone over there and she sends big warm Aussie hugs for all my 3D bruvvers and sisters and for you and DawgDad too!!

Catcha later!

Love and licks from The Jetsettin' Flat Papster

Email Number 2:
G'day again DawgMum... the Papster here!!

Boy oh boy, we've had a very busy day over here. First of all, you can tell 3D Pappy that I reckon he fibbed about those flyin' monkeys... I ain't seen nuttin' like that. But they do have these funny big things that look kinda like giant mouseys and they have big tails and big back legs and they jump along really, really fast. And Auntie Sandie said sometimes some of 'em come on her farm and us doggies have to watch out for 'em 'cause they'll hurt us. That's very nasty of 'em, doncha think?

Anyway, first we went to a town called Taree which is about 25kms from Auntie Sandie's house and where she goes shoppin'. You know, for goodies for her doggies and all. It's very nice there 'cause it's next to a big river called The Manning and the people are kind to doggies - they let 'em have fun in the riverside park. Here I am with Unca John at Manning Quays, lookin' at the river...

And while I was there I even 'tended I was a koala and tried to climb a tree!! Check this out...

Anyway, then Auntie Sandie and Unca John took me to see this place called "The Big Oyster" - they said it used to be restaurant, but now it's just a car yard. Too bad, else we coulda gone in and had a nice big bit of steak or something! Here's me with Unca John standing out the front...

OK, so then we went about another 75kms all the way to a town called Bulahdelah and I met Auntie Sandie's boy who's called Nat. His friend Dave was puttin' on a big car and bike show called "Rock, Rattle 'n' Roll" and he'd asked Nat to come all the way from Sydney to be a judge! There were lots of old cars, some old trucks and some really nice motorcycles. You and DawgDad woulda really liked 'em! Unca John was s'posed to take his Ford truck, but the radiator was cracked so I missed out on havin' a ride in it. Dunno what a radiator is, but Nat and Dave were dis'pointed when we arrived in Auntie Sandie's car instead!! Anyhoo, Auntie Sandie and Unca John met a friend of theirs called Dave - a different Dave - and he had his funny old truck there. Auntie Sandie said I should have my photo taken with the truck 'cause it looked like it would make a good "Bullymobile". I hope she wasn't 'sinuating I'm a bit of a junkyard dog!! Anyway, here's me and Nat, with Dave's old Dodge DeSoto... can you see me at the driver's window?? Bet I fooled ya, huh? These weird ol' Aussies drive on the wrong side of the road, hahahahaha!!

So, now here's the last photo. Auntie Sandie didn't know this man, but she asked him speshly if he would have his photo taken with me 'cause I was raisin' lots of money for poor bullies who don't have nice people to look after 'em. Not lucky doggies like 3D Pappy and Feather and Darla, but doggies like LizzaBelle and Skippy who didn't have lots of love until they came to stay with you and DawgDad. Anyhoo, the man was VERY nice and he had a big laugh and then said he'd be happy to let me sit on his.... HARLEY DAVIDSON!!! I'm a bit hard to see, 'cause he was holdin' me very close to his chest so I couldn't fall off. SO... now you can just tell that naughty Pappy, who tried to frighten me, that I didn't see any ol' green lady ridin' on a broom, but down in Bulahdelah one Saturday afternoon the folks did see a brindle and white bully ridin' on a green motorcycle. Woof, woof, aaarrroooooooo!!!!

See ya later DawgMum... hope you like the photos! Dunno where I'm goin' next but I'll let ya know when I get there!!!

Lotsa love and licks from the happy traveller.... The Flat Papster XXXX

From the looks of Dash and Annie, all of them are plumb tuckered out from all the adventures!

A huge Bull Terrier thank you to Sandie and John for helping us with our fundraising project and showing Flat Papster some of the cool sites! For more information on what we are doing and how you can host Flat Papster or Flat Benny to help Bull Terrier Rescue, see this post.

Next globe-trotting Flat Papster is off to Wagga Wagga! And I hear rumors that our US Flat Papster has robbed a bank???

Move Over Johnny Cash

The Papster has arrived on Music Row!!
(hmmm~the fire hydrant or the Musica Statue???)

Well, the Flat Version of him anyway, and he seems to be having a blast running around Nashville.

(what? another flattie??)

The first stop on Flat Papster's Rescue Fundraising tour was none other than the birthplace of 3D Papster in Ashland City, TN, a little town just outside of Nashville. He must have interrupted his Uncle Traveller's supper, see the cottage cheese on Trav's nose? Just like a Bull TerrOr to arrive when food is being served!

(Traveller, 3D Papster's Uncle)

He arrived just in time to celebrate St. Paddy's Day with everyone too! He had an All Access pass to the 18th Avenue Pub Crawl on Music Row. Hope he didn't drink too much green beer, cause he's too young to drink!

(let's get this party started!)

(3D's other Mama, Janice laughs at Flat Papster on the table)

(maybe HE had too much green beer??)

I'm told he is going to work with his other Mama Vicki, then he will be heading to CT to see what trouble he can get into with Gimli, the stiff necked dwarf and his family.

(Gimli is an example of where the donations go, he is a rescue, the scar on his muzzle is from some jerk who tied his mouth shut to make him quit barking!)

For those reading our blog for the first time, or in case you forgot what this is all about, Flat Papster and his friend Flat BenJammin are traveling the globe raising money for Bull Terrier Rescue. Rescuing and fostering Bull Terriers is very dear to my heart and our rescue is always in need of money to help these poor babies who, out of no fault of their own, have found themselves homeless or abused in someway. My dear friend Paula and I feel it is the responsibility of anyone who spends the money to show this wonderful breed to also give back by helping the rescues who are in need. Here's how it works....

Flat Papster and Flat Benny are in a race to see who can go the most places and who can raise the most money for rescue. The "official" race will end in Oct at Silverwood and our Nationals. Both flat boys will be there to present money to our rescue and with a list of places they have been on this Most Excellent Adventure. (if you click on the link it will take you to our Facebook Fan Page)

If you would like to help we ask that you "buy a ticket" by donating at least $5.00 to our rescue. You can mail a check or use PayPal. Be sure to put the name of the Flat Boy you want to visit in the comment box. (lots of folks are having both flat boys visit!) We will then put your address on the list and have him sent on to you ASAP. We ask that you take pictures of the adventures and email them back to one of us so we can post it on our fan page and also here on the blog.

We have 2 of each Flat Boy, one here in the US and another traveling outside the US. We will try to make sure the Flat Boy of your choosing gets to you as fast as possible. Quite a few tickets have been bought so far and are asking if you have a Flat Boy visiting that you try not to hold on to him for any longer than a week before sending him on to his next destination. Paula and I would be forever grateful to you should you decide to participate in this fun fundraiser, but the Bullies you will be helping will benefit from it the most!

To have Flat Papster come visit email him at
To have Flat Benny come visit, email him at
The PayPal account is

(Flat Benny or BenJammin as Pappy calls him)

Paula and I hope you will join us in the fun and help our rescue babies at the same time!

Oh and by the way, Flat Papster might be trying to top Johnny Cash, but he will step aside for this man, DawgMom says so!! (for those that don't listen to country music, that's the one and only Conway Twitty)

Until next time (hint:Flat Papster the globe trotter has made it to the Land of Oz)

We're Off to See the Wizard!!

Boogity, Boogity, Boogity, they done dropped the green flag!! The race has started!!

Flat Papster is on his way to 3D Papster's birthplace in middle Tennessee! Rumor has it, he is in for an awesome time while he is there! DawgAunt Janice says he might be goin to the Nashville Kennel Club dog show!!

DawgMom took Flat Papster out to the mail dudes on Wed & can you believe that mail dude even let her take pictures? How cool is that? They thought it was such a great idea when she explained what we were doing & asked if she could take pictures he said "Of course" (there's 2 envelopes because one Flat Papster is stayin in the US & one Flat Papster is on his way out of the states)

Flat BenJammin has been havin lamb-u-natin problems, but DawgAunt Paula said he's finally all fixed up & ready to go. So the race is on! I think Ben Jammin is headin to PA first. Both of them are startin the race in their own states, funny, huh?

DawgAunt Sandie buyed tickets AND pass-a-ports to the Land of Oz! Reckon they will get in to see the Wizard while they're there? If they do, they better get pictures to prove it, or no one will ever believe them! And they better watch out for that wicked ol witch, she's got the meanest chip-monkies around! They FLY! I mean, seriously, look how scary they are!!

We're not sure where all Flat Ben Jammin is headin, DawgMom is bein lazy (what's new?) & needs to call DawgAunt Paula to see, but Flat Papster has tickets to TN, PA, CT, IN, CA, Oz & Canada so far!! We're all so jealous!

If any of you want Flat Papster or Flat BenJammin to come visit you, please email DawgMom at We sure hope some of you do, we would love to see pictures of him visiting our bloggie friends! Check out our post HERE about how it works. We are asking that you "buy" the Flat Boys a "travel ticket" by donating $5.00 to Bull Terrier Rescue. The PayPal account is be sure to note in the comment box if you are requesting Flat Papster or Flat Benny to come visit.

Well, we go thunderstorms here on our ridge & with lots of boom, boomin & rainin & such goin on here, DawgMom says time to close this post.

So y'all clean out the spare room to make room for the Flat Boys & help DawgMom, DawgAunt Paula, FlatPapster & FlatBenJammin help other poor Bull TerrOrs that need help. Check out the FaceBook page for our race updates too~~Flat Papster & Flat Benny's Excellent Adventure~The Race to Silverwood

Later Taters,
