We are being ABANDONED!

by Gussie and Teka Dagger
Me and Teka have discovered that Muzzer and Dad are BOTH leaving us this weekend. They are going to New Orleans! And they are not taking us along.
Instead, we are going to be BOARDED at the VET's place.
Now I ask you my friends:
New Orleans
Street Cars named Desire
Or This
So in honor of the terrible thing they are doing to us, I have composed this tune.
I shared it first with my friends the Barkies.
But the message to my muzzer bears repetition.
Way down yonder in New Orleans
Where the terriers teeth all gleam
There's a funky old conference
You know what I mean
Dad will ponder and pundit there
Mom will wander on Jackson SquareS
Side trips to Magazine street
I'll bet that is neatt.
Doggies going to board 3 nights
Not a very impressive sight
Understand there's one TV
Might get in a fight
No sleep numbers on those dog
bedsNo down pillows for doggie heads
It may take them a life time
To pay back for this
Takin' Teka just for the ride
She'll be stickin close by my side
No computer to blog with,
Send Heron cam quick
Maybe we can escape from there
Join the circus or join the fair
Do you wanna go with us?
We'll certainly share
Then the hoomans can worry some
Pace the floor and chew bubble gum
Post our faces on lamposts
Boy they will be glum
We'll come back when we think it's time
They will treat all of us so fine
Is it worth all the effort?
Nah, let us just whine
with apologies to Mr. Louis Armstrong

Jake of Florida said...

Trust us, we know exactly how you feel. Glum, glummer, glummest.

Our own abandonment will start on Monday.

Our respective folks just don't get it, do they?

They sing "Life is merrier with a terrier (or two)" -- and then they go off and leave us behind.

Do you want to send our Heron-cam after them?

He's free until Monday.

EMPATHETIC WOOFS (accent on pathetic!!)

Hey Guys...why don't you and Teka pop up to the Burgh this weekend...Poker??? Hmm??? I could train Teka in Serious Hairdryer Jumpin'...???!!!

I can't believe they're not takin' you to New Orleans...that just stinks...

Oh...we posted Sissy's Engagement so she'll speak to us again...Mumsie photoshopped her into a wheelie, but she was afraid that would cuz a bit of a ruckus so she didn't put it up....Wimp.

Barkin' at ya dogs...


Pee ess...if ya want us to come down and bust ya out, just give us directions.....

Moco said...

That is very cute. You need Julia to come and stay with you when Muzzer and Dad leave so that you don't have to leave home. Maybe we could beam her to you for the three days.

Suzuki said...

You can always come out to Australia fur a holiday if you want :)
Big licks to you

Faya said...

Try your best "howcanyouleaveuslikethisyoudon'tloveusanymore"-face.....

Duke said...

What a bummer that you guys can't go too! Maybe they'll bring you and Teka some French Market donuts, Gussie!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Fred said...

So sorry! I hate going to camp (shudder). But maybe they'll bring you back something special!

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

Gussie, dear...we terriers are on our way...you live North of here, right?? Hmm...oh...Meamhphhis is south...sorry...had the mappers upsidedown...Scruffy is drivin'...Stan's the back seat driver and for some reason those two boys put me on the roof...somethin' bout the attenae for the radio isn't workin' and to hold my ears up?

Sounds like a crock of cra er well whatever to me.

We're gonna bust ya out and take ya back to ur house and have a poker pawty...we're bringin' a hot dog machine...

Love you ....


Jake of Florida said...

Heron-cam said he'll be tap tap tapping at your door as soon as he charges the batteries on the cam recorder. When do your folks leave???

He'll need to be back here, ready to go, first thing Monday am.

Jake and Just Harru

Joe Stains said...

Guys this SUCKS. I hear they have the best food in New Orleans, why in the world would they not take you???

Eric said...

Gussie.Packing my bags and on my way to join the circus with you.But can we go to the poker pawty first?

Wiry wags and kissies, Eric xxxx

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

Thank you vewy much fow youw hopsitality...I just love what you've done to the place..umm, I weawwanged just a few things, hope you don't mind.
We needed mowe chaiws fow the pokew
love and smoochie kisses

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

Oh...Um Gussie...Lacie spilled some stuff for her smoothies and well, you have ANTS...like giant big ones...

So we rented an ARDVARK from the zoo...first ardievark I've ever heard with a southern accent...

Anyway he cleaned out all the ants AND he cleaned out all us dogs...he's an amazin' poker player...sigh


TwoSpecialWires said...

We heard about your break-out. And the poker bash. Mum's the word. Have fun and clean up the mess so you don't get in trouble when the humines get back!

Wish we could play, too,
Jake and Fergi

Koobuss said...

That is terrible treatment, guys! You gotta remember this. When they get home they should get the cold shoulder from you and Teka. They owe you big time. Lots of treats and lots of ice cream. No Gus or Teka kisses for Muzzer and Dad until they have fully compensated you for your suffering.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess I know a good lawyer if you need one.

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


Gussie? Snickers???? Anybody? Is no one awake? Or conscious...

Um...Muzzer is supposed to be here in a couple of hours...and well...if we don't clean up, we're gonna have some 'splainin' to do....

(Lacie smothers a yawn...and there's NO COFFEE.....)

Hmm....well...when in Meamphiss, do as the Meamphisites...

I'm goin' back to bed....

Lacie curls up on Muzzer's sofa, not noticin' that her paws are covered in MUD....oopsie...and that's only the beginnin' of the destruction....

Lac reportin'.....

wally said...

Jeez, Nawlins without you guys? Where's the fun in that?

Ethel very much appreciated her burpday pome.

wally t.

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

Gussie...was Muzzer mad????


Princess Patches said...

Gussie, please tell Muzzer that really appreciate the hospitality...even though she wasn't there. We had a blast and hope we didn't leave too big of a mess!

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Have you guys seen Swede William? He heard that Teka was home alone and lit outta here, whippet speed.

wags from the rest of the expanded waggle of whippets

Heya Gussie and Teka,
We were sorry to hear that the muzzer and dad don't love you anymore and rented you out to the zoo for the weekend while thay went to pawty town. I guess that an evening of gaeity at Pat O'Brien's or some other hoochie goochie club on Bourbon Street is better than being stuck with y'all. We'd wait a month or two before we'd start looking at them, never mind bing nice to them.
