For weeks now, our house has been QUIET, at first we thought the outside cats were planning a revolution because one of their own has now made residency within the walls of our nice warm house, but that wasn't it....................(and that is a WHOLE nother story)

NOPE, instead everyday Gussie would get up early, and leave the house sometimes not to return for a few days, Maggie and I put our heads together, and all we could think of was that he was BACK to doing this........

BUTT that was not even I guess dear friends lets set back and Let our gussie boy tell you where HE REALLY WAS.

Hi family:
I was approached late one night by a pup all dressed in a black suit and tie.  He asked me if I was Angus McConnell Long and I said yes, and I asked him if he was auditioning for the new "Men in Black" and he took out a white sheet of paper and made a big red check mark on it!!!!  

He told me right away check marks are BAD and I could only have 5 or I was OUT...OUT....OUT.  Well being the super bright pug that I am, I asked him, "out of Mr. Chewy Treats, cos if that is the case I am already OUT...OUT...OUT cos our Mom is working her *&&^%  off and never gets to do a review!"     He took off his shiny black glasses and rolled his eyes at me, and made ANOTHeR REd CHECK MArk.   I was starting to think if this pup smiled his face would crack.

SO he handed me over these official looking papers, the kind that Dad gets and calls junk mail and throws in the trash can,  (at first I thought I had won the Readers Digest Million Dollars, and I could surprise mom wif a vacation ) BUTT it said I was selected to become a POSSIBLE candidate for the Blogville Police Department, and if I do extra well I could even become a DETECTIVE.   WHOOHOOOO!!!!

BUTT.........furst they would need to talk to my neighbors, about my LIFE and also look into some accusations they had heard concerning the prior mayors of blogville, and their campaign trip with ME as their driver.                      UM.........folks that could be a stumbling block...........remember this.............

Do you think Willie could impact me NOT getting into the police academy??????????????????????

So I called Willie and we went over any questions they may ask us so our answers would match........of course there was nuffin to hide anyway............cos after all Willie is Willie, and Gussie is Gussie.

I also called up my ole friend Santa and asked him if he could put a good word in for me,
The snotty pup asked me about my sordid past with Chrissy!!!  Oh my Lord, that troll has come back to haunt me!  I told him there was NO past, that she had tried to sabotage me becoming one of Santa's elves, and it almost worked but I outsmarted her.   Whew!!

and the next fing I knew I was standing at the door of the Academy, a knocking on the door, and darn it guess who answered the door, yep that pup in the black suit, with his darned red check pen, glaring down at me. 

Apparently he thought the only way I got in was having friends in high places............bhahahhahah.

So I worked hard.............

"Hey buddy, butt is stuck can you help a fellow out?".......................

and I played hard
with all my buddies...............

I practiced my driving skills in the getaway ..cough...cough....police car...............

and then this happened.

Yeppers Mr. Pup in Black meet your new DETECTIVE, you had better hope YOU never end up on the other side of the table from me!!!!!

Detective Angus McConnell Long reporting for duty Sir.

(oh my pug what have they created.........Stella Rose Long...........p.s. we hate that we can only read about 10 blogs at a time, we cannot even go back and read yesterdays or any that we have missed in the past, what is going on with our blogger??)


  1. Gussie you are one fine looking officer I think I'll give you a hug. I wish we could help with the blog mess but we don't have a clue.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  2. Hari OM
    Well done Gussie - somehow I feel safer knowing you are on the security team!!!

    Stella, I don't know without seeing it in action what could be happening for you... I do think it is something separate from the recent changes made in Blogger; are you for any reason using different equipment? .... as a stop-gap, what you may like to do is go to the Doodz blog (or mine) and utilise the blogrolls on the sidebar to keep up with your faves - and then you can backtrack through their own 'older posts' button... tedious I know, but better than missing out!!! Hope a solution presents itself soon.

    Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. Way to go Gussie!! What a F-U-N time we are going to have!!!
    SWAT Smileys!

  4. Congratulations, Gussie. We're all proud of you. Watch your driving, though. You're on the other side of the badge now.

    That sounds like a strange problem with Blogger. We thought at first you meant your mom is too busy to read many blogs daily. We know she is really busy.
