A Breakthrough!

Well, we had a big breakthrough here today, so I will take a minute and tell you about it, then give you over to the big guy!

Me and Gussie have been reluctant to go out on walkies unless someone picks us up and carries us beyond the fence line. Ya know? This makes is difficult when there is one hooman doing walkies, like now, when Dad is off visiting Grandpa in Azrizona.

Every time we go out (5 or 6 times a day, cause I'm a diva) Muzzer puts us in the car, drives out of the driveway down the alley and around the corner, and we go walkabout.

Reverse on return.

But we have been working on WALKING out through the front gate! Muzzer has been bribing us. With treats. And today, we did it! And we came back through it to get in the front door! And muzzer was so happy, we got a slice of ham each.

Enough of my triumphs.

Here is gussie with his Carol.

Hi pals! This one is for my Dad, who will be on his way home tomorrow.

And for all our loved ones and yours who, for whatever reason, won't be with us on Christmas.

She's still been driving you outta the driveway? OMD...your poor Muzzer...not to mention the cost of gas these days...(Scruffy is making a mint...)

We are extremely proud of you for facing your fears...

STRONG WORK, GUYS!

Pee ess...when Mumsie went to make the Christmas cards this week, the man in the store put her CD in his puter behind the desk...Mumsie said that she needed the "dog picture" from the CD on the card...she wasn't looking at the man's computer screen. Imagine her surprise when he showed her the screen and well our Christmas card had none other than Gussie's butt on it...evidently there were other pix on the CD she used to burn our pictures...she burst out laughin' and said um NO...

Sheesch...I'd have been proud to have your fuzz butt on our cardie!

Kisses...!
