27 August 2006
The day finally came. My sister E.Beth came and took Teka to her apartment to live with her! I, Gussie, miss Teka very much.
Most of the time.
But not at meal time, when I can chew slowly and savor my food.
And not at treat time, when I do not have to guard my treat to keep Teka from stealing it.
And not at bed time, when I can pick my own spot on the big bed and no one growls at me to move over.
And not when my father and I sit on the couch and watch baseball games together.
And not when muzzer and I walk in the mornings.
But the rest of the day, when there is no one to tussle with, and no one to play chase with in the yard, and no one to share toys and chew chips with me....those are the times I miss Teka.
Muzzer says not to be too sad. She says Teka will be coming over for play dates. She says, "maybe E.Beth won't have time for Teka and will bring her back for long visits." She says, "Travis is coming in a little less than a month to stay with us while his mom goes to England."
But I still miss Teka.
Some of the time.
Sort of sadly
