news from the home front

The big news today is that this "innocent" little escape artist made a couple of more successful attempts to escape today, resulting in a conversation between Muzzer and Dad about electric fencing! Sheesh. What next, GPS? Working diligently, as always, yours truly has found the pawfect place for my photos of Miss Snickers.
See, in this next picture, I am pointing to my current favorite :)
And here they are in their glory...we are more limited here because most of the appliances are hiding behind wooden door thingies, so I can't tell the fridge from the bread drawer.
Other than that, it was a pretty boring day

Hmmm....I think an electric fence might be a good thing....escape artists can be an issue...especially that one!!!!!

Miss Snickers is so bootiful....(types Lacie wistfully....)

I'm not surprised you are completely e nam mored with her, Gussie....she could walk the catwalk in NYC if she wanted to leave I O Wa....

How's the unpackin' going???? Perhaps you could talk Muzzer into takin' ya out for ice cream for being good dogs...at least 50% of ya....

Sweet kissies to sweet Gussie...

Teka certainly is a stinker. Snickers sure is pretty - good thing you were able to find a good spot to display her photos.

Snowball said...

Teka is a smart girl so its now up to muzzer and dad to find a way to out smart her.

Are you liking your new home so far, Gus?



Nat said...

Electric fence? Heck, if you need to electricute Teka you can do that right in the house without all the added expense.

Congrats on the lovely new home!

William Tell said...

I understand Teka completely. Once you get a taste of freedom, it's hard to stay home. Mom's even talking about upping the juice on our electric fence after The Incident yesterday (of which we will not speak again).

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Maggie & Mitch said...

The perfect spot for your pictures of Snickers, Gussie! Right at eye level!
Are you the one helping Teka to escape, Gussie?! shhhhhhhhhhhhhh we won't tell!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Patience-please said...

Oh TEKA!!! DO NOT NOT NOT escape and go adventuring. It is NOT NOT NOT worth it, and we know about these things.

Joe Stains said...

Do you think Teka is trying to come back to AZ? If she is, tell her to wait until fall, its too hot here! I think its cool your appliances are hiding!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Gussie,
Boy, Snickers is so happy you put up her pictures so soon. You must have packed them with your toys. We just love your tail pointing to the picture too, hehehehehe! Poor Teka,
you must explain to her that if she gets out & a car hits her she will be hurting badly. We would hate that to happen. We hope you get the wireless fence soon so you both stay safe. Have fun this weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

What a lucky dog you are to have such a beautiful sweetheart as Ms. Snickers.

We hope you find a solution for Ms. Escape Artist because we'd hate to think what could happen to her... and muzzer doesn't need the grief since she's trying to get things all nice for you.

Wirey woofs, pal!! Stay safe -- and cool (it's hotter where you are than it is here!!)

wowie! i sure hope your yard does not get fenced in with concertina wire and armed guards on towers to keep tek-scape-a in. that wud be not so nice, although it wud probably keep the skwerrels out of your yard pretty well!

luv ivy

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

We think the invisible fence is a great idea. We used to have one and it worked very well. That is...it worked for about 6 years until Poppy decided the trip outside the yard was worth the shock! We still have it, but it's turned off since we have a fence that you can see. Have a great week!

We are catching up on all your posts from Mayemphis! (Watch out! Once you pick up that accent it's hard to lose!)

Muzzer is an electromagnetic wizard! I am STINKIN' impressed that she self-installed Mr. Comcast! We can just picture your dad's hoomiliated face.

Is your new place a Craftsman home? My girl LOVES the backyard and the archie thing too. She said that art glass in the swingy door is gorgeous.

We're glad you found yourself some good places to hang photo of Miss Snickers. My girl thinks you have the cutest pointer she's ever seen!

Before this gets any more mushy, let me just say that as much as I grouse about Stella I'd be bummed if she ever got lost. So, by all means, get that electrofence if it will keep the Teka Toy safe!

My girl is going all gushy about you with the flowers and any photos of you at all. She's been going through withdrawl.

Goober love & smooches to you, Teka, Muzzer & your dad!


Asta said...

Thank you fowexplaining the sunset to me..I knew I could count on a smawt kid like you to know these things..it does make sense...but if you evew come to Manhattan, you can stay wif me fow fwee
smoochie kisses

Jackson said...

Hey Teka, what do you want to go and escape for? I would have thought you'd have more fun staying home and tormenting Gus! (Sorry Gus!) J x

Eric said...

Gus,Nice pointer you have there.Momi is still giggling at that one. I think Miss Snickers is a very fit foxy...pawsome that she is your sweetheart. Wish I had me a sweetheart....

Wiry wags, Eric x

Naughty Teeka - she sure is a little tinker!

You are doing a great job with the decorating.


Koobuss said...

Well, at least you have the dishwasher, Gus. You picked out some great photos to display. I agree with you on your favorite. It is a beautiful picture. Snickers looks very lovely.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
