How E.Rabbit got her name.
Then came reading time, and a lot of E.Rabbit's favorite books had Rabbits in them.
She even had a tiny bean bag stuffie
that looked like Benjamin Bunny from the Beatrix Potter books.
Then muzzer came home with this funny looking character (actually, just one that looked like this)
Her name became "Pot Belly" and she joined Benjamin Bunny and a few others who shared the bed with E.Abbott. Somewhere along the line, E.Abbott became E.Rabbit, and the name has been haunting her ever since.
Which makes me a little worried, because sometimes muzzer calls me Gussie Wussie, and I don't know if I can deal with that forever.
Now, how did this picture get in here!

books and movies and flashie beasts
So, for now...she is taking pictures of "stationary" objects.
That means things that don't wiggle like terriers.
This is a book she found at the Library Sale.
Don't ya love the cover?
Let us know if anyone has read it yet please?
She has been fighting with the flashie beast and hasn't even opened it.
Me and Teka are hoping that we can start it soon.
Plus, she was gone for a long time last night.
She and Dad went to see this movie.
She says there are no dogs in it, but otherwise...
And this scene reminded her of pawties that Asta
and Mommi and Daddi have on Onkel Tony's roof.
Also, she says the movie contains one of the most creative reasons
she has ever heard for "houseworkitis!"
Bone Apetit Guys.

E. Rabbit responds
I see some of you are upset that I made cookies for my young friend George while he was staying with me this weekend.
But let’s get some perspective. Gus makes it sound like I made cookies for George, but I’ve never done anything for Gus.
This is quite simply untrue. Let’s review just a few of the things I have done for Gus:
I bought him special cookies for the election.
And George W. Bush cookies before the election.
And TWO George W. Bush stuffies for him to kill.
I have bought him a Baseball toy.
And a St. Louis Cardinals Bowl.
And a St. Louis Cardinals Bandanananana.
And a Tabasco Bandanananana that has a cooling pack in it.
I have bought him sunglasses to wear on his many car trips.
I have given Muzzer a kit so she can make dog biscuits for him (it is not MY fault if Muzzer has not made him any biscuits).
I have made him a blue sweater.
And a maroon and gold sweater.
And a monogrammed sweater vest.
And that doesn’t EVEN count the things I’ve done for Teka.
Ok, maybe we shouldn’t talk about the things I’ve done for Teka.
But the point is: Gus is acting jealous that I made one batch of cookies for George while his mom was out of town.
And that’s kind of selfish when you consider all the things I’ve done for Gus. You’d think he’d be a more generous spirited terrier, and be proud of me for doing things for other doggies from time to time.
Frankly, I’m a little embarrassed that that’s not the case.
Besides, the cookies gave George smelly gas. So Gus wouldn’t have wanted them anyway.

My Sissie has been Unfaithful

Never one to ignore a good idea, and slipping deeper into childhood every day, muzzer decided to try her hand at makin' me a prayer bracelet that I can wear when we invoke the power of the paw.
Nice thought Muzzer. Spelled my name right and everything. UMMM, the only thing is, it is long enough that I need to wear it as a necklace. And I gotta tell you...I'm just not sure about this.

We moved here from Azrizona, home of Joe Stains, the Azrizona Cardinals, and Azrizona State University. Our US Representative was a friend of dad and muzzer's. His name is Harry Mitchell. He was mayor of our town of Tempe for a long time, and was the first Democrat elected from our district in ....oh, I lost count.
We moved to Mayemphis. The mayor here is Willie Herenton. Or perhaps we should say "was" because he resigned from office effective July 1st to run for the US House of Representatives. Except...just a couple of days ago, he picked up an application for the mayor job again. The election is expected to cost over a million dollars. And I don't know whether he still thinks he is going to run for Steve Cohen's seat in the US House. Mah friends, this is politics in the Mid-South. Thinking Terriers don't have a chance around here.
But just in case you think all is glum....Well we need to tell you that Mayemphis has two more national holidays than the rest of this country. Or maybe they are really "holy days of obligation."
This is our second "Elvis Death Week." We wanted to share with you some of the video from the candle light vigil last night.
And, ya know...I kinda think Elvis is cool. I like his song "Hound Dog." And he had way cooler clothes than my dad does. But when you run into Elvis wannabees EVERYWHERE, it gets a bit scarey. Muzzer says she has seen them in the Walgreens store, and on the trolley downtown, and in the local grocery store. And this morning, we saw one walking toward Graceland when we were on Walkies! At 5:45 aay yem, this dude was sauntering (sort of) down the street of a relatively quiet residential neighborhood, singing "Don't be Cruel." I thought muzzer was gonna lose it on the sidewalk. But dad, well Dad just said Good Morning and we walked on. Dad dresses like a nerd, but he is pretty cool, sometimes.

Finding our Inner Terrier
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.
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.

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING is going on here worth writing about.
We eat, we sleep. We run in the back yard. We go for walkies, we have dinner. We sleep. We go out for our nightly fence check. We sleep, we have AM Walkies.
The Muzzer has reached new pinnacles of laziness.
Me and Teka tried to entice her by luring a turtle into the back yard.
She was not grateful. She screeched at us! Then she made Dad take the turtle back to the pond next door and apologize. Teka was depressed, because she was the one who did most of the digging so the turtle could get under the fence. No gratitude around here either.
We haven't seen our friend the racoon. Muzzer says we scared him off. I think it is her fault because she did not invite him in for dinner.
Dad has gotten so fed up that he is eating lunches at the 'Fectory at Rhodes. I think he is really glad that classes start in a couple of weeks.
