This and That and Teka's great xcape

TADA...Muzzer and Dad and Teka and I are staying over at our Max and Ruby's house, while they are on vacation. Because Muzzer has packed so many boxes you can get lost in the maze over at our real house. We will have some photos taken today when the big truck came, but we are working at one of Dad's offices at the Unibercity. Because Max and Ruby had their internet turned off, or think maybe they did, so we are really in bad withdrawal stage.

OK, so since Dad is being nice to Muzzer and helping her through this withdrawal thing, we have been able to read blogs and e-mail.

BUT...because Dad can only be so nice and let Muzzer use his puter for (relatively) short time spans, we must rush to read and see, and we have no time left for answering or commenting, almost.

SO, we know about Tanner and the Vet, and Stella's Barkday, and maple bacon iceCream that E.Rabbit made ( and didn't share) and Lovely Cassidy beating the wykf out of her bruzzer at the dog show, and the Ice Cream that the Brat Pack got, and Maggie and Mitch and Buster and his truckies and Faya and her wonderful weekend. BUT...we haven't left messages like we usually would, hoping to get through all this doggie stuff and 150 emails for Muzzer since Saturday.

Not to mention my own pile from all you wonderful friends.

SO, we will be back on line as soon as we can, from the road, with pictures and stuff. Until then, we are one of those visitors who show up on your counter every day, and we love you lots.

NOW... on to Teka's great Xcape! This morning Muzzer went to our own house to baby sit the movers and make sure they did not take all my toys. So me and Teka stayed home and had bananannnaas with Dad. And then Me and Teka went out onto the patio and did not jump into the pool. We chased and chased. Then we went to work on the gate. Teka said she knew she could get out of there and 'splore the neighbors yards. I thought it sounded like fun, so I maybe helped a little bit.

We moved some stuff that Dad had used to block the gate and then ZIP! Teka was out of there in a flash. Oh my. I barked and barked so Dad would come and check. He thought me and Teka were playing a game with him, so he checked the pool (we cana't go in without a hooman) and he checked under the bushes and alllll over. And I stood by the gate and barked at him.

FINALLY he realized Teka was not in the yard. Sheesh! And he completely panicked, and he got in the gussiemobile and went to look for her, but he didn't take me.

He was really worried. This house backs up on South Mountain, and when you are in the BACK, you are only a golfing green away from coyotes and bobby cats and mountain lines that go GRRRRRR. And sometimes people can lose their pets, because those other not pet animals come into the yard and SNATCH the little doggies or the kitties. Chomp. A mouthful of Teka, down to the tummy.

BUT...Teka was lucky. She must have decided she was losted, because when Dad got down to the next circle he saw her go WHOOSH across the street in front of him. So he parked the gussiemobile and got out and called her. She only made him chase her for a block and a half before she turned around and came running to him. Whew. What a relief.

I asked her why she did not wait for me, Gussie so I could gbark at the not pet animals and scare them away. She said I was too fat to get through the gate, so she didn't wait for me. Some gratitude, I may have knocked over the flower pot, but does she say thank you. NOOOO

We thought she had gotten away with her adventure, but , this afternoon, both of us had to go to PetDumb and get a bath and brush and stuff. I think this is not fair, because I did not run away, she did, and even if I maybe helped a little, I didn't leave and I barked at Dad to get him to know she was gone.

Life is so unfair.

Kisses to all

PLEASE excuse our

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh boy,Just what Muzzer needed... for Teka to run out!!! You were a pretty good alerter Gussie( of course did they pay attention??Nooooooooo...) Moving is very nerve wracking but you all seem to be handling it very well..better than we would.Are your toys especially wrapped so they can't break or get wrecked? We would pay extra..Love A+A

wally said...

Whew! I'm glad Teka's safe. It was nice of her to give you a distraction while moving, eh?

wally t.

Joe Stains said...

if it makes you feel better I do not think you are fat AT ALL! Keep that little terrier INSIDE the fence, even if you have to toss her in the pool!!!

Jackson and Patrick said...

PetDumb - ahaha! Teka is very lucky she was found safe and sound. You two should not play such naighty games, especially after your Dad was so careful to block off the danger spots!

Snowball said...

Gus, you are such a great brudder for Teka. If you have not kept an eye on her and notify your daddy that Teka has escaped, she might have been lost. Good job!

Being groomed is not that bad. It will only make you smell and look good for Miss Snickers.


Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Gussie,
We're so glad that your Papa found Teka. Do you think she was trying to go find Tanner?? Good thing no bobby cats found her. They can be very mean. There are a few mountain lions/bobcats around our area. A few people have seen them, one person had one come up onto their deck & look into the sliding glass door, yikes! Maybe you should put Teka into her travel cage now so she can't get away again, hehehe. Snickers thinks you probably got a bath since you will be travelin. Don't want the new Gussiemobile to get dirty. Have a very safe trip!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butcho & Miss Snickers

Glad you're back. And, even though I'm sure you sometimes wish Teka Toy was gone for good, you know you'd miss her and we're glad your dad found her before the mountain lines did.

Be careful on the road, and don't forget to hydrate a LOT. Even if they have to stop every 25 miles so you can whiz, you need the water, man.

Can't wait until you're settled in your new digs!

Goober love & smooches,

Oh Sweet Gussie...ya know I could tell from ur post how much you love the Tekster even if she drives ya nuts!!!!!!! I bet ur poor Dad was havin' a heartie attack when he was lookin' for her just imagining how Muzzer was gonna kill him. Thank dog ya found her the little scamp. I am so glad ya sounded the alertthisisanemergency bark...

We dogs got sent to camp, but busted out to join Mumsie, Daddy and the family in Hilton Head...the gators are interesting.

Barkin' at ya Gus...PLEASE STAY SAFE. Moving is a very dangerous time for doggies...ur routine is very upset....stay close to ur mom and dad and don't eat anything nasty....

Concerned barks,

Maggie & Mitch said...

Whew! We're so glad that Teka is safe!
Bummer about the bath, Gussie! You're right - it should have just been Teka, not you too!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Patience-please said...

Oh LORDY thank goodness that Teka did not get lossed or eaten. It's bad enough to be without an Internets but to be without a Teka... no no no no no no that would not do.
Good luck with the move...

Poor Gussie! Why should YOU have to have a bath when Teka was the naughty one? A dog's life is sooooo unfair! We're glad Teka is home safe! Our mom knows all about that panicked feeling when one of us 'scapes!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

William Tell said...

Ah, Gussie, you were the hero and helped alert your Dad to Teka's big misadventure, and what did you get for your troubles? A bath?

Next time push Teka out the gate, then take a snooze. Play innocent. "Teka? I dunno, isn't she with you?" hee hee

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Eric said...

perhaps put naughty Teka in her in her Blue travel bag so she doesn't get into more trouble... Hope the move goes ok, should be fine with you supervising Guss if they will finally listen . . .

Wags, Eric

Dewey Dewster said...

Wow, that was quite an adventure that Teka had 'n Muzzer surely had no appreciation for the brilliant job ya did tellin' yer Dad where Teka had gone.....the P's" never give credit where credit is due...cause it sounds like things coulda gone pretty badly had ya not used yer substantial barker as an alarm...peepers......ya can never figure 'em out....
