A note from Gus

Dear Friends and Readers:
I just want to tell you about a few things that are impeding my ability to blog.
First of all, there is Muzzer.
Yesterday we got a package from my sissie E.Rabbit. She sends GRRRREAT packages. Do you know what mean muzzer did? She put it on a high shelf in the cabinet and closed the door.
Wanna know why? Because she doesn't have any batteries for the camera that are charged up! How difficult can that be? Of course, it requires thumbs, so I can't do it myself, but even my technologically challenged muzzer should be able to plug the battery thingy into the little holes in the wall.
I think Teka could get the package down, if one of us can only open the door. We are working on it.
My second impediment is Bloglines.com . We have been happily using that little program for about 4 months to keep track of which one of our friends are posting new stuff on their blogs. All of a sudden, in the last week or so, the people at bloglines are letting us down!
We will be sitting there thinking...."hey , we haven't heard from (Butchy, Maggie, Faya, Joe S., Wally, etc.) for a while. Wonder if something is wrong?" So after about two days of this, muzzer did things the old fashioned way. She typed in the URL of some blogs that we remembered, and lo and behold....there were new posts on almost every one! Sheesh. So, is anybody else having this problem, or are they just picking on Poor, Pitiful Gussie? Muzzer says maybe next week we can try the new service that Blogger has. Yeah sure! You Betcha!
The third thing that has been problematic is that my sister E.Beth came to visit, and muzzer and Dad have been going to museums, taking her to dinner, etc. All of those things cut into my blogging time! Not fair!
So, if we haven't visited you, we apologize. And if you want to see what E.Rabbit sent us as much as we do, let muzzer know in your comments.
Until my status improves, I remain
Poor, Pitiful Gussie

We want to see what E,Rabbit sent you. Two leggeds are always full of poor excuses for cutting into our blogging time, withholding parcels etc, there should be laws against it. The new blogger thingy that shows you the most recent posts is great, with only the ofdd hiccup that we have noticed. Maybe you can paw muzzer into giving it a whirl.


love and tailwags,

Ben xxxx

hi Gus, we hope your situation improves soon. it's so sad when the batteries in the camera are dead and the human can't manage to charge them. it's dog abuse, we tell you. good luck with that.

Hey Gussie,
How y'all doing today? Tell the muzzer that we are still faithful followers and we do it that old fashion way. We have you on our favorite blogs list so we can just click on you everytime we log on. We check Huffle, Nanook & Pooka, The Brat Pack and a couple of other favorites too. Gotta keep up with what's going on ya know.

Ugh, I completely understand that evil battery thing. My continuing frustration finally convinced mama to get a better camera, I can only hold a pose for so long...

Much love,

Faya said...

I wish I can come to you and open that door for you.... in the same time I could bring you some new batteries...
I am working with bloglines and no, I never had problems. If sometimes I am late it is only Véronique's fault...NA.
Good to see you !
Kisses, Faya

Maggie and Mitch said...

It sounds like you guys are spending lots of time alone while E.Beth and Muzzer and your dad are touring the museums and the restaurants! If you need help getting that door open we can come down and help out! Just say the word, Gussie! Write back soon!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

We feel your pain Gussie! Sometimes our mom doesn't post just because she doesn't have any new pictures and she's too lazy (she says "too busy") to take any new ones. What's up with that? Doesn't she know we are way more impawtant than anything else she could be doing?

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Patience-please said...

Molly and Taffy said...

Oh dear Gus what a terrible situation to be in. If the world was run by us Dogs there would not be these problems!

Did your Mum see the film "Batteries included"? We think it came a little after 78's!!!! :-)

Hope you get to open your parcel very soon. The 4 bs are so right, it is dog abuse!!

Molly and Taffy

The Girl said...

Oh, Gussie, it's not fair that you're not allowed to open the pressie! It's not YOUR fault the camera battery died! Tell Muzzer to let you open the package!

Brown dog kisses,

Joe Stains said...

Our bloglines was wonky for a day or two but seems better now. I hope you get that package SOON

William Tell said...

Poor, pitiful Gussie! Since your family is out to museums and such, that should give you plenty of time to work on that closed door problem, and how to get Teka to that top shelf in the closet. We'll work on how to get her down later!

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Poor pitiful Gussie, We are finally visiting after mom has the puter acting right(we hope)
We don't know how to use bloglnes or readers, but with the list of our friends , it shows when they have updated. That is what we use. Its just on our side bar.
How come Muzzer is so very resistant to charging your camera batteries???? Does she have a deep seated phobia or something?? Perhaps you need to look into couseling for her......one never knows about these humans.
As far as your package, I (Sunny) can probably get it for you. If I'm not tall enough standing still, I do fantastic leaps....
Hope I have helped somewhat. Hopefully Muzzer will address these issues.

I forgive your muzzer. My ma ape has been neglecting me and my blog and she has no E.Beth excuse. But I do want to see some new Gus soon.
