M Day -9

Here we are...9 days from now we leave Azrizona for Tennessee. Today has been pretty boring...eat, bark, play, sleep, play, eat, bark....you know the routine.

Muzzer, in her infinite wisdom, had forgotten how to upload pictures from the camera to the new puter. I had to come and help her. Woops, she forgot to plug the camera into the 'puter. So, here we go:

First of all, she went off and left us this morning, even though it is Monday and I know the store is closed! She went to PetSmart. She brought back this blue thing for Teka. It is going to be her Travel Crate! Teka, not muzzer.

I don't know, if you ask me she is gonna be in some trouble as soon as Teka remembers that Tanner ate his way out of one of these things. But, to paraphrase my friend Ivy "Nobody ever listens to Gussie."

Today our project was to take down and box up the pictures on the walls. Here is what we had accomplished by the time we decided to blog.

And of course, here is what the walls look like now:

Pretty exciting, huh?

Oh, and the other thing we wanted to share with you is this video.

I am telling you, this dog looks a lot like Teka. I wonder if I could earn some money by teaching her to do this trick?

Whoa. That's a lot of work your mom did. Maybe she would like to be crated--no more packing!


wally said...

P.S. Gus--I'm going to use your story about your Uncle! Thanks!

We don't know what bare walls look like because almost every inch of our walls is covered with paintings, photos, etc. -- some of them actually of wire fox terriers (and cardinals). And we bet if our walls were bare, Mom would be depressed.

Gussie, we hope you're being very nice to muzzer right now, because it isn't easy to look at bare walls and boxes -- even if you know something better is on the horizon!!! We know what a sensitive terrier you are -- so have at it: love, licks, and general loopiness.

It seems that maybe teaching that trick would result in a balloon busting headache. At least you wouldn't have to clean up after parties.

Lenny said...

Wow, she is really methodical popping those balloons. My people are old farts and don't stay up late enough to watch Jay Leno.

I hate balloons! I think they're scary!

Dewey Dewster said...

Wow Gus...are ya gettin' excited fer yer big move? Pretty soon now...wow all those boxes ta pack 'n unpack but we are sure both you and Teka will help with it all....that sure looks like a swell travel crate fer Teka....give 'er some balloons ta break 'n maybe she'll refrain from eatin' the crate.

Gus, perhaps this link will jog the Muzzer's memory...


Keep on trying to tell them, someday they may listen!

That doggie does look a lot like Teka! Just think, only a few more days and you'll be on your way to Memphis. Say Hi to Elvis for us!

Looks like Muzzer is working hard on the packing. Are you supervising, Gus? I don't think I've ever seen a balloon but I'm sure I'd want to kill it! J x

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Gussie,
That's a nice crate for Teka, looks nice & comfy. We bet she will like it. Hmmmmm, Mama thinks she has seen that dog before on one of those dog contest shows. Better teach Teka how to pop balloons. Make her earn her kibble, tee hee.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
