Finding our Inner Terrier

Me and Teka have been spending a lot of time this summer
trying to discover our Inner Terrier.

This is one of the spots we have been investigating.

It is under the porch by the back door of our house.
We spend Lots Of Time finding ways to get in and out of this area.

Sometimes we dig under here. This week I have had one FULL bath.

I have had my front paws and face washed 6 times since Monday Morning.

Muzzer is keeping track on a dry erase board.

Teka likes this spot a lot.

She has found a way to get a paw under the corner of the grate and flip it over.

It is quite impressive. Then we scuffle a bit about who should get to stick his/her snout into the drain that is under there. She always wins.

This also has some nice smells. Teka can get her nose pretty far down that pipe.
She doesn't get as many baths because she doesn't have as much furs, but her face gets pretty slimy when she sticks her nose in here. She has had her face washed eight times this week. Also on the dry erase board.

And this is the solution muzzer has come up with to keep the terriers out of the area under the porch.

HAH! We laugh at your efforts.

OK, so what's the prize for the pup with the most tally marks? When they do this for the kidlets, they get stars and then prizes. Must be something good to come out of this, Gus.

I salute you 2. You beat even me for more washes this week. That takes some doing. Teka 8 washes? My oh my. Cos I've observed sleek of furs dogs like you Teka somehow manage to slew the dirts off but not quickly enough this week eh? And the metal sheet stuff. Gotta laugh at them leggeds. Such Triers. But NOT Terriers.

Encouraging wiry wags you go pals.

If you give Teka a shove, would her whole head fit in that pipe? Then she'd be stuck like Winnie the Pooh. Don't worry, we'd all pitch in to heave-ho her outa there.

Happy Tails,
