Hi Pals, Pal-ettes and all the Ruby Air Ships at sea! Some folks have been kind enough to make enquiries about our general health, since it has been a while since Teka hijacked the blog with her demands.
Now, I could make this a really short post, and say that Teka has been spending a lot more time in here4.....
But I am sure some of you out there want to hear all the gory details.
Teka has kept to her promise to get up five minutes earlier each morning. That resulted this morning in muzzer putting Teka outside for a few minutes and then popping her into her crate. She was loud, but muzzer and I managed to go back to sleep, and we didn't leave for walkies until it was almost light (6:20 am) Score one for muzzer.
Teka has not found a pet groomer or hair dresser willing to dye her pink. She has found a hair dresser who is willing to put extensions on around her ears, and another who will cornrow her fur. But I don't think the corn rows will work as well on Teka as they would on me, so don't give her any ideas, OK?
Teka has also been able to make good on numbers 5 through 10. But that is not much change from her usual behaviour, so we hardly notice it.
I've been going to work with muzzer more lately, as dad is out of town and it is more fun for me to go to work than stay home and watch Teka get her crate unlatched and start on her havoc campaign. So I have been very busy, and I am tired and ready to go to bed when we get home.
BUT....last night muzzer decided I needed (yet another) bath! These are happening with increasing frequency of late. Muzzer says it is because I am digging holes and tunnels and getting muddy. I think it is part of muzzer's plan to break my terrier spirit. Last night, she even used the blow drier on me...not my favorite thing. I do look handsome, and I have included some photos for your enjoyment.
In this first one..I am eating so fast that muzzer had to change the setting on the camera because I kept coming out a blur! She also screwed up the lighting, so I look quite beige and not very white.
You know, she really should stick to cooking, cause she does it pretty well. For dinner tonight we had venison kibble, leftover salmon bits and green beans. You can just see dinner in my bowl, as I came up for air about this time.
Here I am very shortly after that, getting a refreshing drink of Tempe Tap Water! Not the elixir of the gods, but muzzer sometimes forgets to give me the filtered stuff from the pitcher, which is much tastier. And I very seldom get my very favorite water, San Pellegrino. Muzzer says I only like it because it reminds me of the cheese I get on top of my psghettis (Pecorino) but I really like the bubbles! hehehehe. Reminds me of kissing certain wirey girls of my acquaintance, who shall remain nameless because I am a true gentleman. Ahem.
Well, I am listening to American Roots, and just about to sign off now by saying:
"And that's all the news from Tempe Lake, where the muzzers are strong, the dads are good lookin and all the dogs and children are above average. " thank you Garrison Keillor
