A mystery solved!

We got up this morning, and no one could figure out what was wrong with Teka! She did not want to get out of bed. She did not want to go for walkies. She just wanted to curl up in the warm spot muzzer left and sleep and sleep.
I, Gussie, was very worried about her.
She stayed at home while we went on walkies. That has NEVER happened.
It was still dark when we went out, and we couldn't see much. On the way back, we noticed that there was a little white car parked in front of our house. Dad said "must be some of those crazy friends of E.Beth's."
We went inside for breakfast, and we turned on the laptop to check my e-mail! I found out why Teka was sleepy when I read my pal Joe's blog.

It seems that Joe's brother Tanner (aka Doofus) and Teka went out last night for a little midnight snack. They must've stayed out later than the last bus back, because Tanner had to scratch around for alternate transportation. Read Joey's blog for the details, but anyway

In the spirit of cooperation, the two of them worked together to drive the golf cart back to our house. Then I guess Tanner must've hooked up with one of E.Beth's friends, because he got back home OK. I told muzzer, and she told Dad, and they went out to see if they could find a phone number to call for pick up, or at least let the owners know where they could find their golf cart.

Imagine their surprise as the walked out the door! The golf cart was being driven away by

this guy and his buddy! Muzzer looked at Dad and said "Well, there goes the neighborhood! Now we have to move." He just shook his head, which is a fairly common response.


with thanks to Joe Stains, Tanner and their mom.

I just don't know what to do with that Doofus anymore. I was snug inside my sleeping bag and had no idea he was even gone! Mom and Dad need to leash him up or something. Pretty funny that the golf cart belongs to another Doofus, look at that face he is making!!

Maggie & Mitch said...

OMG, they borrowed HIS golf cart??!! Thank goodness Teka and Doofus are home sleeing in their own beds instead of in prison!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Look at that picture of poor sweet, adorable Teka sleeping. She looks so innocent. Are you sure that she actually did all those things with Doofus?

I bet the guy who drove the gold cart away never knew what happened.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Your subtle political commentary artfully weaved into the Teka & Tanner story is very effective. I LOVE it.

Goober love & smooches,
