Mother’s Day Planning

I have been spending a lot of time pondering what I should give Mommy for Mother’s Day.
Last year, I gave her a voucher for a movie and snuggle with me.
She loved it!
Daddy went way over the top this year so I have to go big!

Good thing I have a few more days to come up with something!!

Three Blind Mice

Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice,
Statistically speaking, what is the likelihood of 3 blind mice all hanging out together? 
Three blind mice

See how they run,
If they are blind, wouldn’t they be crashing into stuff?
See how they run!

They all ran after
The farmer’s wife
Again, I ask if they are blind how did they know to chase after the farmer’s wife? This makes no sense…moving on…

She cut off their tails
With a carving knife
I have to admit, this does sound a little extreme. I bet the farmer made her mad earlier in the day and she just took it out on the mice.

Did you ever see
Such a sight in your life
I have never seen such a sight because Mommy has a general aversion for rodents and I am usually with her.
As three blind mice?

This nursery rhyme is pure nonsense.
I am going to go turn on some Skynyrd…

National Specially-abled Pets Day!

  Today is National Specially-abled Pets Day!
This is a day where we celebrate all pets who are disabled.
As you all know, dachshunds are prone to back injury and sometimes end up in wheel chairs.
Even in a wheel chair, they have soo much love to give!
Please consider adding a specially-abled pet to your family!

Here is some more information on IVDD.
Here is the link to Dachshund Rescue South Florida where you can learn more about dachshunds looking for a home!

Reliving a Nightmare!

Today was a very stressful day for me.

Daddy took me out for a potty break and I saw these geese on the side yard!
It gave me flashbacks of the horrifying ducks that lived behind us in Florida!

After I saw these beasts, I refused to leave the porch.
Mommy had to give me a slice of white American to calm my nerves.
I hope they don’t come back!

Nursery Rhyme Commentary by Gussie

The Farmer in the Dell
This is probably my least favorite nursery rhyme of all the ones James listens to. I decided to examine the lyrics more closely to try to figure out why it annoys me so. After looking at them, I realized just how ludicrous this song is!

The farmer in the dell
My first question was what the heck is a dell?? I looked it up and discovered that it is a “small valley among trees” whatever…
Hi-ho, the derry-o
Derry-O? Mommy and I originally thought this was “Dairy-O” but apparently we were wrong and Derry-O is a reference to a county in Ireland…moving on
The farmer in the dell

The farmer takes a wife
I hope he asked nicely…Mommy gets snappy if Daddy assumes she wants to go someplace!
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The farmer takes a wife

The wife takes the child
It better be her child…kidnapping is illegal!
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The wife takes the child

The child takes the nurse
Who is paying the nurse’s salary??
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The child takes the nurse

The nurse takes the cow
That nurse better be paid well to put up with a cow!
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The nurse takes the cow

The cow takes the dog
I don’t know any dog that would be keen to travel with a cow but whatever…
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The cow takes the dog

The dog takes the cat
If that cat was as cool as Tino, I would be okay with that…
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The dog takes the cat

The cat takes the mouse
If there is a mouse on this journey, you can guarantee Mommy won’t be coming along!
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The cat takes the mouse

The mouse takes the cheese
Don’t worry mouse, I can handle the cheese!
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The mouse takes the cheese

The cheese stands alone
The cheese stands in my belly.
Hi-ho, the derry-o…
The cheese stands alone

As you can see, this song is nothing but nonsense!
I hope you enjoyed my commentary!

A Noisy Nose

 Mommy claims that I was snoring so loud last night that I sounded like a running hog.

I was highly offended.
I told her there is an air mattress in the playroom she can sleep on if she has problems with my alleged snoring in the future.
