Someone Please Tell me

Why I am in trouble?
I went out this morning and helped
muzzer with watering the new sod.
That is what Gussie asked me to do.
I think I was doing a good job.
At one time, I had the whole sprinkler head thingy
in my tiny, delicate mouth.
And I stayed busy telling muzzer
where she should point the thing and
when she should move the hose and
how long to hold it in one place.
I am telling you. It was exhausting!
So why am I in trouble? I think it has something to do with the way
muzzer's little khaki not-quite-slacks looked.

Pawsonally, I think the design is charming.
And at least it blends with the overall
boring khaki effect of her wardrobe.

I think I heard Gussie laughing into his paw!


Snowball said...

Well done,Teka.I think you are a pawsome fashion designer. Who says you are in trouble. I see no trouble caused by you are all!

Things like that just happen when you are out watering Teka. It happens to almost everybody. She is really not mad.. Tell Gus I put some things about coons on my blog that may interest him & muzzer.

I don't think you did anything wrong.

Jake of Florida said...

We think it's muzzer who should be in trouble for not taking better care of her khaki trousers -- or wearing something different when she helps you with the watering.

Just our opinion.

Uh oh, no wonder you are in trouble with Muzzer. You jumped up on her legs didn't you?? hehehehe! Hope the stains come out of her pants. Sounds like you did a good job of following Gussie's instructions though. Tell Muzzer that Gussie survived our huge storm we had early this morning. He couldn't believe we had 5 inches of rain, nasty winds, thunder & lightning. Some towns had lots of bad damage, we lucked out with just more branches down to pick up. Hmmmm, more stickies for us to chomp on.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,

I sure don't get it! FREE TEKA!

We know you need to be the free spirited girl you are, so please tell Muzzer there are some mighty fine and juicy goob smooches coming her way if she will let you loose! Sounds like you've been holding down the fort & keeping the grass growing. GUssie will be SO PROUD when he gets back.

I ALWAYS redesign my girls clothes. Usually, I just slime them with my tongue, but the sprinkler's a good idea too.

Goober love & smooches,

Hoomans can be so fussy can't they?

We believe you WERE doing a good job. You were trying your best. We''re just not quite sure where your attention was directed. On the new sod? On the water? On your creativity? On the fun you were having? Personally, we think Muzzer's khaki pants look quite stylish.... the raw linen look, ya know?

Enjoy your weekend, Teka T,
Tell Gussie hi for us when you talk to him again,

Sounds like you were following Gussie's instructions and redesigning Muzzers wardrobe at the same time. WoW. Clever clogs! Bark about multi tasking.

Wiry loves and kisses, Eric xx

Teka, I think you have a future in clothes design! (Or should I say... redesign...?) ;)

TEKA!!! I dont know WHY the APES get MAD when we TRY to HELP!

I don't see anything wrong. What seems to be the problem? The design on the pants is rather unique. Muzzer should be glad that no one else has a pair of pants like that. They are truly one of a kind.

And, you worked so hard, too. Sometimes our best efforts just go unappreciated.

Maybe you ought to lay low for a while and stay out of the way. I know one thing for sure. I absolutely would NOT help in the yard anymore. Leave Muzzer to do all the work by herself. Then she will appreicate you more and you won't be in the dog house as often.

Hope you take my advice.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Teka...how did you do that?? Did ya point the sprinkler at her?? I did that once with the hose...Mumsie can shriek louder than me when there's cold water involved....

Honestly, for as hot as it is in Meaaamphis, your mom should be thankin' ya...
