Now, THIS is progress!

OK now friends, THIS is progress. See...for the hoomans, we got an inside litterbox and splashie place, for washing up in the morning.
And on the wall, there is this shower thingy, which looks suspiciously like a doggie shower!

And there, at the end of the stairs, we have a

So, maybe this project is not so bad after all.
I'm not sure about that doggie shower thingy, but
I have always wanted a Doggie Door!

Are we first? Or at least close? Muzzer has a new litter box...hmmm...that's interesting...hey, Gussie...WE KNOW ALL BOUT THAT THING IN THE SHOWER...Look out...you're gonna get a HOSEDOWN....mud on your paws...roll in poop....whatever...you are soooooooo hosed...

As for the doggie door...oh man...you shoulda got one of those revolvin' doors like they have in New Yoorrrk...ya know the ones that spin...can ya see Teka flyin' around in it? She's look like a little kid on a merrygoround....

Have fun with the door...we're totally jelly....

Hey, Gus...if you give me ur groomer's number, I can hook ya up with some bows for your next furtrim...hahahahahahahahahaaaaa!

Love and kisses...

OMD! Lacie is still at it! I just read about the pink bows in Stan's hair. Trouble is: We love pink! (Jake included!) And she's giving it a bad rap.

That doggie door? You're gonna love it. PJ had one at the rescue house and I was a pro! They won't let us have one here, though. The coyotes might come in.

And that shower thingy? Yep. You're gonna get hosed down! We get it for mud AND for melting snow! Even Fergi is kinda used to it by now. The water's warm.

Speaking of which, I think that shower thingee might be squirting on us in the next few days....

I hope she doesn't take pictures....


Sally said...

Wow - that is a lot of progress - we love the idea of a doggie door. Not sure about that shower - looks bad to me. I mean what is wrong with dirt and smells?

Lots of licks

omdog, a doggy door? I am jealous. Mom and Dad don't trust enough to have a doggy door. The bathroom looks great, but stay the heck away from that shower looking device.

Fred said...

Eric said...

How cool having your own door.Make sure Muzzer puts you names on it like they do for those celebrity leggededs.

The new litter box looks excellent. Otis had a good study of it. Mewed he's very jelly. Dragged Mom in to look. She wants to know if you are having one of those tin celings that she loves?

I want to know if you can teach me all the HBO words Muzzer has been using Gus????

Wiry wags n kissies, Eric xx

Duh! What happened? How'd so much get done so soon? OBTW: That Fred guy that commentted up above is, we think, FooFoo Fred (our test questions proved it). Fred is a cool dude and we like him; he's a bitchin freeze. You know, one of them little white puffy fur ball dogs. Anyway, cool new digs y'all got they and yes, you are gonna get wet and get wet often.

Moco said...

Dog doors are the best. We go in and out at all times of the day and night. Beware of that shower thingy though.

William Tell said...

Oh, how special! We would LOVE to have a doggie door, though we would probably use it so much we would knock it right off its hinges within a week. Then, there's also the problem with critters (other than ourselves) that live in the hollow and might want to come indoors. Raccoons, possums, army-dogs, sasquatches and such. Yep, better leave the door shut here. Boogers outside in the night, ya know. But if we were town dogs, YEAH, we'd have a doggie door for sure!

Happy Tails,
William Tell

My gosh . So much stuff has been going on at your place! It looks great, but I think everydog is right about that shower thingy. Personally I don't mind showers, baths, any kind of water is cool with me. (But my breed's name does mean "splashes in water ) Scooter on the other paw hates them....
Tell muzzer we didn't have any spools of thread(tell you anything about our mom??) but she found some next door at gramma's(she will be glad whenthe service finally takes place and her sisters come to help take care of things-she will be moving, but has no idea where or when yet)
ANYWAY... it still shuts itselfdown, but not always. She calls it a "crapshoot"....
Hugs-and enjoy that door!!!

Maggie and Mitch said...

The new shower is just beautiful, Gussie! We have only had baths - never a shower! A shower could be more fun?!
How nice that you have a doggie door to come and go as you please! We wish we did!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Asta said...

Have you twied youw new showew yet?
ow dashed in and out of youw faboolous doow?
I'm thinking of you wif love and smoochie kisses

Stanley said...


Congratulations on the doggie door, buddy! Dog door = autonomy, and that's something you can't buy from the hoomans. At least they trust you enough to let you use it.

The home improvements are looking good, and so are the contacts. Tell Muzzer that my girl is a confirmed contact wearer and to stick with it. Once she gets used to it she'll be taking those puppies out in her sleep!

So, are you getting paid extra to supervise all of this improvining on the homefront? Hmmm? I hope so.

Goober love & smooches,

Mo said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your's! In fact, Chase is jealous he hasn't gotten much face time on mine recently. I think it's time to post some pics.

Abby said...

Hi, Gussie...

It's looking good...

When they go near the Doggie Shower...Just run out the Doggie Door...

Abby xxxooo

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Now Gus...we've been wonderin' the same thing bout the sound of little wheels flyin' around of Myrna and Gilbert's...best I can tell since Seymour had those pups, that the anatomy and physiology of wheelies is a tad different that the canine systems....so I'm not sure...even as an experienced nursing student.....

Are ya gonna dance with me at the wedding? Good, I've penciled you in on my dance card...make that inked....

Lotsa love,


Agatha and Archie said...

behind behind behind we are soo behind..We love hte new bathroom(except the dog shower thing) How are Muzzers contacts??? Love A+A

wally said...

OH my goodness! That's exciting, though I am always a little grossed out by naked apes AND cats cuz they do their business indoors. Just weird, eh?

What is outside the doggie door???

wally t.

Tee said...
