Back to work for the Terrier!

Monday was my first day back at work in a while. When it is really hot in Azrizona, muzzer guilts out about making me get into a very hot car and ride in the back seat while the air conditioner struggles to cool it down to 96 degrees.

So on Monday, I went back to work! And muzzer said she had a surprise for me. It seems a package had come from Asta ny and her Mommi with some things for muzzer to sell at the store, and also a few surprises for me! So I was excited, and ran right back to the treat cupboard as soon as I got into the store. See what I found? THREE surprises for Gussie! And Muzzer asked which of the surpises I wanted for Monday. Did I want the cool yellow life preserver tennis ball covered thingy?
Or did I want the marvelous purple chomp toy with lots of colorful squigglies?
I sniffed both of them carefully. Hmm.. this is a conundrum! Yellow ring thing or purple phallic symbol?
I voted for the purple phallic symbol, and had a great time chomping on it all day long. Behind the counter, under the racks, in the dressing room while helping customers. Then I took it and carefully hid it in the back room so that Jewel Berning from next door couldn't find it. She is not as bad as Teka about chewing my toys, but almost!

Today when we went in, I ran back to the treat cupboard and waited a bit impatiently for muzzer to come! I was doing my little terrier bouncy dance, trying to bounce my body high enough to get into the cabinet all by myself.

Well, that didn't work out, but Muzzer did come back and give me the tennis ball ring. These toys are special because they smell like little Asta! She is a cutie, even if she is really young.

Thank you Asta and Mommi for such nice surprises! Muzzer says we are taking the bully stick with us to Sedona. Won't Travis be jealous?

Hey Gussie,
We would have picked the purple toy too cause that's Mama's favorite color. We're glad it's a bit cooler so you can go to work with Muzzer now. We bet the customers just love seeing you there. That's pretty cool that Asta slipped some goodies for you into the box of things for the store. She's such a smart little girl. Oh and we blew up your picture so we could see your new haircut. You're lookin' pretty spiffy there Gussie. Mama says your legs are so nice & fluffed up. Well break time is over, back to work with Mama.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers
