In Trouble Again

Lady's NOT happy with me these days. I brought fleas home from reading pee-mail in the tall weeds, or perhaps I got some from tussling with the street dog. So, lots of combing and than a flea bath. I don't mind baths so much. I get a good scratching, but I have to stand there so long with the special shampoo on me. What's fun is watching Lady try to get me to shake. I know exactly what she wants me to do. I shake on command, then she lets me out and dries me off. But I get such a kick out of watching her shake that I just stand there and watch for awhile. Just before she loses it, I'll shake all the water off. 
The other issue Lady is having with me is my gas problem. She's calling me fart blossom again. Apparently I interrupted her sleep a few times last night. Nan was over yesterday and she and Lady were planning for the little mess makers on Saturday. Nan asked, "What is that smell?" Dumb me looked up at her and gave myself away.
It's raining every day now, which makes walking a muddy affair. I have to get cleaned up before I can step foot back in the house. I am so low to the ground I get really dirty. You should see my rain coat after my walk! It's pretty cool these days with a high of only 70 F. It's nice -I have my blankie. 
Lady and I are having fun reading through the BLOGSVILLE OLYMPICS. We read a hilarious story today on Bert's blog about his friend Murphy. CLICK HERE to read it. It's about something he ate.
Nan and me teaching the little mess makers. Pallu went back to her mountains, but Wyatt and Tate come over to play with me. They were here yesterday. I behave.


  1. Marley we hope you have got rid of the little pests. We too saw Berts' post and found it hilarious. Have a great Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Oh Marley, does Muffin have to give up her title to you? She Queen of the Stink's! (Really not from tooting, but loves to roll in the yuck in the grass.) She said she'd be happy to give up the name.

    And as for the fleas..... So what's wrong with bringing home some extra furends? tee-hee-hee!

    Next time Lady shows you how to do the Shakes, grab the camera and get it on film :)

    We're gonna miss seeing your little friend Pallu. She was a cutie!!

    Hope you had fun with the mess makers.

  3. are the CENTER of attention there.

    PEE-s....Why don't humans like to smell our farts?

  4. Marley, maybe Lady can find doggy gas X hehehe. Looks like you're having fun with the little mess makers, your tail is all a blur :) I wish we were having rain and 70 degrees. It is hot and dry hear. It's a good thing you like baths since you get a dirty tummy after your walks.

  5. Oh, no!!! Fleasers are not a fun companion for a good puppy like you.

    I would love to watch Lady do the shakey-shakey to get to to shake!! I bet she is hilarious!

    Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

  6. "Fart blossom"! That's hilarious! Now I bet my mom will start calling me that. Sorry about the fleas. Mom had to pull a bunch of tiny ticks off of my ear this morning so I know having little critters on you is no fun at all. Probably smart to stay away from the street dogs.

    your pal,
