The Return of Teka!

Well, Teka is back, and seems pretty much the same as she left...maybe a little skinnier, and all she wants to do is sleep.

She says she had a marvelous time with Swede William and the gang, but there were a couple of things that were different from at home, and she had to make some adjustments.

First thing...she had to get herself into the first group for walkies, because the Servant who walked them was sleepier then. He kept trying to count dogs, and coming up with one more than he expected. But Teka had very cleverly taken her collar from dogwalkers
which is just like the ones the whippets wear, and so the servant kept saying "right collar, must be our dog."

She reports that one or two times, he noticed that she was shorter than all the rest of the dogs, but he kept saying to himself "collar's right, fits OK, must walk it."She and Swede William had a great time, and she said he was very nice to her, and even shared food sometimes. She says next time, she must remember to take her own bowl. (Next time!)
Mama Pajama was very nice to her, telling her how things were supposed to go and when it was time for walkies to start. Also giving Teka much advice on how to get along with Swede William. Teka feels that Mama P is very wise and good.
But her favorite whippet (except for Swede William, of course!) is Very Old Dog. He was a bit confused, thinking she was just a puppy of sorts, but he very kindly told her she could call him Grandfather, and often made room for her at nap time.

And of course, her favorite human servant was Dr. Bill, shown here with Swede William on William's recent Barkday. Teka says his spaghetti is just as good as muzzer makes! And she thinks he caught on that she was a visitor by about the third day, because bowl number ten began appearing, and she didn't have to wait for someone to share with her. She is planning another trip soon, maybe even when the whippet servant is home!

Even Muzzer seems glad to have her back, and now we can get ready for our trip to see Aunt Re in St. Loulis, and maybe I can have some Steak and Shake!

Teka! We don't know what to do with Swede William. He is sighing and sighing and pacing and heart broken since you went home. (He wanted us to tell you that he is on a hunger strike, but we told him that a hunger strike doesn't mean that you're hungry and then you eat everything in sight.)
We had so much fun with your visit!!! Our servant peepee'd her panties a little she laughed so hard and she thinks you and Gussie are just as cool as we think you are! And that is the cooliest!

Teka, Have you mellowed? Is it love? Ask muzzer to sing this song for you!!!

Jake and Just Harry

Love changes everything:
Hands and faces,
Earth and sky,
Love changes everything:
How you live and
How you die

Can make the summer fly,
Or a night
Seem like a lifetime.

Yes, Love,
Love changes everything:
Now I tremble
At your name.
Nothing in the
World will ever
Be the same.

Love changes everything:
Days are longer,
Words mean more.
Love changes everything:
Pain is deeper
Than before.

Will turn your world around,
And that world
Will last for ever.

Yes, Love,
Love changes everything,
Brings you glory,
Brings you shame.
Nothing in the
World will ever
Be the same.

Hey Gussie,
Yummmmmm, Steak N Shake. Bet you are just drooling thinking of that place. Don't they have one in Mayemphis??
Does Teka have any good stories for you from her trip?? or is she keeping them secret??
Can you believe that Dr. Bill never noticed Inspector Butcho & Detective Joey???
Time to go out for walkies.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
