19 March 2009


Our trip to Oxford, Miz'sippi has been postponed, because it is 'sposed to rain today. Muzzer and dad thought that muddy dog feets might make a walking tour a bit less pleasant. So we are now planning for Sattiday, which gives muzzer more time to get our treats and snacks ready.

Meanwhile...we thought we would share a few photos of our sunshine from yesterday, and show you what we do all day while Dad is workin'.

We have been spending a lot of time working on the patio deck. Here we are posing in a rare moment of rest and relaxation. We had just vetted one of the contractors who is bidding on muzzer's spring projects. The guvmint could use us to help weed out the bid proposals there.

Teka is a real sun maven. She ways she is working on her tan, she wants to be more of a match for Swede William. Muzzer tells her that it isn't gonna happen, but Teka is one appetizer short of a party, so she is persisting. Good thing Teka doesn't know that the spray on stuff is sunblock. She thinks it is a perfume. Sheesh.

The High Biscuits are looking pretty good. Lots more flowers and lots of buddies.

I'm thinking I look pretty good too, but Muzzer says I am getting shaggy. Pawsonnaly, I think I look a lot like Asta's cousin, sweet Koobus. I will admit a spring cleaning would feel right fahn.

Well, gotta go. Need to work on my lyrics today so Petey can start the dubbing.

So long.

We can't wait to see/hear those lyrics 'cause you are indeed the Paw-et Law-re-et of Canineland.

You might take a look at Scruffy/Lacie's blog to see how we've been kilted for our role in the chorus.

Mom wants to know if you have your own copy of Lirty Dies from the Capitol Steps --if not, she'll send one to you.

Wirey woofs and kisses,

Jake and Just Harry

Mango said...

Mom kept making me khome in...I don't know why?!?

I wonder why there is a towel at the bakhk door?

I hope your inspiration muse finds woo!


Tee said...

Licks and Wags,

You're right...it would be much more fun if you go when it's not raining! Tell Teka that we wish her luck with her tan!

OH BE STILL MY HEART!!! I'm tellin' you Gussie..your south end facin' north has it ALL OVER Mango's...big inflated ego he has anyway...oh my...I may hafta lie down for a while...Lacie rapidly fans herself....If you do get spring cleaned, do you think you could find a groomer to mimic that look back in 'Zona?? You know, the one with the tiny tight curlies??? BTW, I respected you wishes bout not showin' in that beach picnic photo...but you were the most handsomest of the bunch...paws down...

Ya better tell little Teka, that sun is not her friend...the wrinkles...the leathery skin...I know I know she's usin' screen, but I'm thinkin' a parasol would be better...


William Tell said...

Your deck looks like a great place to hang out in the sun, Gussie. Is there room for the three of us?

Happy Tails,

Gussie is a disney Movie; The Shaggy Dog. When vetting contractors give them all their shots and check their past tax returns. Teka is a cutey.
OBTW: Nice butt Gus.

Eric said...

Gussie.Can't wait to sing your lyrics to my sweetie Toffee. Did you have time to work on them today? Pawhaps you can drop them off so I can learn them when you walk to Oxford.

A shame you didn't go to Graceland Gussie. I heard they do a mean fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. Dogalicious...or is that a rumour?

Wiry wags, Eric.

Tell Muzza Teka might need a sun hat. How about a nice Easter bonnet.

Rudy said...

Ohh that sunny deck looks nice and warm... we had one whole day of sun this week and went right back to ugly cloudy yucky rain..


Koobuss said...


You look perfect to me! And thank you for comparing us. I am honored.

My mom and Grandpa both like the shaggy curly look better than the groomed clean look so that's one reason why I look the way I do. I think it's a holdover from the 1960s.

You have the right idea about how to spend your time. I love sunning myself on the deck, too. Tell Muzzer to get you each a nice big outdoor pillow like I have. It's so much better than lying on the wood. Then you'll never want to go back to work. hehe..

Good luck writing your lyrics, Gussie. I know that you will do an outstanding job.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Stanley said...


We like your fuzziness, buddy. Bummer about canceling the Oxford walking tour, though. I personally think muddy paw prints in the car are a lot like leaving your signature all over the place.

My girl especially thanks you for that last booty shot. She's still ooooo-ing and aawwww-ing.

Goober love & smooches,

Butchy and Snickers said...

Oh Gussie,
Snickers just about fainted seeing your fuzzy butt! She says it looks just right. Better hold off on your groomin' for another month, tee hee.
Too bad your trip is postponed. We hope you get to have lots of fun when you go.
Tell Teka not to stay out in the sun too long each time. Mama is going to have her spots checked out on her skin next month. Teka better count her spots, then she'll have to count them each month to make sure no new ones appear, hehehehe.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

We can see that you have the supervisor role down.

Joe Stains said...

Glad to see it is warming on up over there. It is already real warm here, as you probably remember :)

Faya said...

Your High Biscuits are beautiful !
I am like Teka, I love the sun even if my tan is already perfect...
Kisses, Faya
