This, that, and the other things.

My friend Butcho came to pick me up yesterday so I can spend a few days with
my sweet Miss Snickers. Until then, I have put Teka in charge of our project, and
so I turn this posting over to her. Fasten those seatbelts.
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...like he is the only one who can handle a
landscaping project. Right? Ok. Here are some pictures of
what Muzzer insists are grapes growing in our back yard.

They are pretty small, and very hard.
So far, even the birds and critters are not eating them.
Please do not order this particular vintage. We do not
have a great track record growing comestibles of any kind.
Hence:
Here is what I have finished on the project to date:
This morning I helped Pedro water the ground before the
BIG truck got here with the sod. Then I made sure
that all the sod pieces fit together at the edges, and ran and ran and ran and ran
making sure they were all pushed firmly into place. Then I helped Dad water them
one more time. We will water tomorrow morning also,
and again every morning and evening until Monday,
when we will check to see if they are growing rootses.
HAH. Just wait til that tree comes on Friday. I am digging a great big
hole, covering it in water and mud, and having a grand old time.
Kisses to Miss Snickers and all the other doggies who need them.

Hey Muzzer & Teka,
Gussie & I arrived safely here back home. Snickers' medicine came in today! Mama was glad it didn't take as long as they thought, so she went to town & picked it up. Snickers started her first batch at supper time. It is a liquid form & she sucked it right down! Sure hope it does the trick. Unfortunately our vet is not doing so well. The hole in his lung is getting bigger, so they think they will have to operate on him. He is not happy, he's already bored to death in the hospital. We promise we won't stay up too late playing poker, errr ummm I mean Dogopoly, hehehehe.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butcho

Teka, it sounds as if you are doing a great job with helping get the project underway and well established. Just be sure when you help with the watering, you use the right kind of water. Yellow water makes yellow or brown spots in the green grass, and that can be a problem. With no one else around to blame it on, you could get in trouble and we don't want that to happen.

Love,
Miss Fergi (and jake)

As Moco said, most jobs require a lady to get them done. So long as the lady on the job is not the (former) Governor of Alaska. We can't wait to see the finished product.

ps. Gus, you obviously have not had a whiff of my intoxicating odor. Could knock out even the stoutest of Wisconsonians.

We're Gglad Gussie and Butcho arrived safely to help Ms. Snickers along!!

And Teka Toy, you seem to be keeping a good eye on things with your dad -- do you have a green paw to help muzzwer out?

Perhaps we can come by again and help water -- but by then it will be frosty and all the greenery may be gone.

Heya Teka,
Those "grapes" and the attempt to grow grass in the yard have something in common; they'll both be fruitless.
Yuk yuk yuk, we crack ourselves up.
