We're big on lists around this house.
We make lists of what we are supposed to do.
We make lists of what to buy at the store.
We make lists of books we want to read.
We make lists of things to tell Dad.
We make lists of just about everything.
This week we are making lists of what we need
to do for this weekend.
Here is my list:I'm going to check with Butcho to see if I can spend the weekend
in Ioway with him and Snickers. If that won't work, I am planning a
pawty at the vet's place on Sattiday night. We can get kicked out of there
just like we got kicked out of PetSmart. There aren't that many places
in Mayemphis where muzzer will leave us. If we keep it up, we will run through that
list pretty quick, and she won't be able to take trips with dad and leave us behind.
We will let you know.
Meanwhile, muzzer is obsessing about what to take on this
expedition to the big cities of New Yawk and Dee See.
I said to her: "Look muzzer..everything you own is either black
or khaki. How difficult can this be?
Here is her list, which you can see only proves my point!
Stuff it in a bag lady, and let's get this show on the road.

We are big on lists here too. The poor old people cannot remember more than two things at a time.

I, too, am concerned about the pins, rocks, and needles. I guess that is between you and Asta.

Patience-please said...

Muzzer is meeting Asta without you guys???? ah-nooooooh! No wonder you want to give Asta pins, rocks, and needles.
Our idiot servant makes lists. And then she forgets where she put them. Sigh.

Lists? Are they supposed to help? We see notes scratched on little pieces of paper, but they don't seem to get used when the time might be right. For instance, Moma just went to the grocery store WITHOUT her list, and did she remember to bring us back any treats? Of course not. If the leggeds are going to write them, they need to use them. Model that, Gussie. OK? And tell Muzzer to add shoes. Black shoes. To her list.

Give 'em a sad look as they go out the door.

We are such a list family that our lists have lists.

We're so glad you asked whether H.C. Bird was free to accompany muzzer to New Yawk. You didn't mention Dee Cee though -- as a loyal Dem, he would be happy to visit there with her too and see what he can do to solve all the problems. He's pretty concerned about global warming and what it will do to his fishing grounds. And he listens to NPR all the time -- so he'd love to see all his favorites!!

Don't forget comfy walking ahoes....

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Abby said...

Hi, Gussie...

My Mom has to make lists, too...But then she forgets to look at them & forgets stuff anyway...

I think she is getting old...

Ummm...The pins & rocks & needles kind of concerns me, too...

That clothes list sounds great to me. I really like the colors. Hey Gussie, aren't we kinda black, khaki, and white? Those colors are pawfect together. What else do you need?

Have a great trip, Muzzer.

Lists are furry imPAWtant to the lives of humans because without them and if they walk out the door, they don't know how to get back in☺

wally said...

You are a very organized dogs to mae such lists. My ape makes lists of all the things she is not going to get done in the day. At least I assume that's what she's doing since she never gets past item one or two.

And when I read that first list I thought you were calling Butchie a Hore which I thought wasn't nice but then I figured it out. Whew.

Fred said...

Hmm...Old Girl loves lists, but she never makes them for me. I will tell her to start this toot-sweet!

Agatha and Archie said...

HA! if we didn't know it we would think that PL2 made a clothes packing list!! IT IS THE SAME STUFF!!!! and Gussie??what is up with the pins and stuff?? Arch said he will bring the albums for the party( if you trust him..it will probably be all Frank Sinatra..) Love A+A

Deetz said...

My mom thought she was the only one who wrote lists of clothes to take...she probably has a separate list for underwear and socks, then makeup, toothpaste....lord I could go on and on and on

Gus said...

My pal Axel sent this comment, but used the wrong ID.

We are passing it along

When is Muzzer coming to NY and DC - and my mom wants to know, why not Philadelphia too? Mom will be in NY/Long Island weekend of Oct 16 - may be able to meet Muzzer perhaps??
I get to stay home. Boo!


Moco said...

The crazy old bat says that there is nothing wrong with black and khaki. List are pretty normal in this house also. It's only because the crazy old bat can barely remember her own name. Be good at the doggie hotel.

William Tell said...

Might be interesting if you switched your list with Muzzer's. Pins, rocks and needles? Did I miss something?

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Molly the Airedale said...

You are so organized, Gussie! Muzzer is lucky to have you!
We have lots of lists at our house too! If we didn't, mom wouldn't remember a blasted thing!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Be glad you're not going on the trip; we didn't see "change of underwear" on muzzers list of things to pack.
