Searching For Ratitude

Greetings from the "Burgh".....


Ya know, there's somethin' about angry skies that make ya wanta look up 'n watch the big black clouds move over the tree tops. Mother Nature can be friendly and she can be powerful but some of the sights that she sends can be downright beautiful.

Remember those workers from the other day? Well, they were back doin' their work when the big black clouds rolled in. It didn't stop 'em though, cause those clouds just kept right on rollin' by.

See that metal monster at the top of the driveway? He was still guardin' the way in....we wanted ta go pee on 'em but Gram wouldn't let us. Looks like they're puttin' new blocks in the spot where the old wall was.
Yep, that 's what it looks like...I bet that will make a great Earthdog tunnel when it has a top on it....no rat will ever escape our jaws through those blocks..........what do ya think?

Well, we are paws-a-tively disappointed here. Did we get a new Earthdog tunnel? Naw, we didn't.....Gram 'n Pap got a new retainin' wall...we held out hope fer the tunnel until they put a bunch of gravel behind it..... then added dirt on top of that. There was no way that we could chase anythin' through a solid pile of that stuff.
Then Gram put some of her plants back in the dirt...'n some of that black mulch on top that got Koobie inta a peck of trouble not long ago. And we knew we were doomed ta never havin' our own Earthdog tunnel.Me 'n Mom decided ta have a little talk about what we were goin' ta do now.....we were serious....
Mom thought about us trying ta dig our own tunnel...after all we're terriers 'n we love ta dig......
Toby's just a clown...he's always happy...'n he's always smilin'.......so he isn't worried about that tunnel......think he'll find out about bein' a terrier before it's too late?
We'll, we're gonna put on our thinkin' caps and decide what we should do ta get that tunnel. So as we search for alternatives....we bid you all farewell....'n wish that everyone has a GREAT WEEKEND......

Oh 'n on the last post we weren't thinkin' straight, we would like ta pass the Daily Blogger award on ta our Kousin Asta in New York cause she's always bloggin' from all over the world.

Mom says your new retaining wall is wonderful but we still like your idea better about the earthdog tunnel! Do you think your mom would mind if you dug up her new flowerbeds?

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Ooooooo angry clouds! Could you send some of those over here to AZ...it's really hot right now! I keep burning my feet when I got outside! It feels not so good! I can't wait for some rain to come and cool us all off!

Hope you all are having a good weekend!

Slurp!

Sorry you didn't get that Earthdog tunnel, but the retaining wall looks really nice! Our mom would like one like that beside our driveway, but then, she would probably back over it. She's not a very good backer-upper with our very large Aire-mobile!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Hi Dewey,

You are right - retaining walls are boring! The tunnel idea is great! Three terriers can change the world (make it as tunnelsome as they want it to be:)) All the best!

I imported a thinking cap similar to yours - unfortunately, I haven't been able to figure out the charging rigmarole! I hope to, before the batteries run out:) I wore the thinking cap while making my new post. Do tell me whether it works!

Licks and Wags!

That's a nice retaining wall, Dews - great for jumping off of, but I think the tunnel would have been a lot more fun. I But you'll find somewhere else to go digging, right? I hope those angry clouds go away and the sun shines right on you.
