Bio: I am a very large 'super sized' terrorist. 3 inches over the standard.
25 pounds of pure hard muscle. I love to be a couch potato when the daily chores of guarding my people are over.
I love to roll on my back to give it a good rubbing. This is my favorite thing to do after my mommy takes my doggy coat off on a cold day, or when I am wet.
My very long legs are good pogo sticks for jumping.
My mommy had to put up a 6 foot tall fence, (which is buried one foot underground) all the way around my 1 acre yard to keep me safely in after she installed doggy doors for me. Yeah! No more tie out leash.
I love to 'hunt' in the woodsy area in back of the yard and dig in the huge pile of logs sticks and yard waste.

Spotlight fur of the Week at Dog Park USA: June 22, 2010
Well, growlmy found me in the yard hunting!
Nose to the ground...then munch-munch-lick the chops and repeat.
This started after I ran lickety split through my doggy door to bark at the neighbors cat. (A handsome tuxedo kitty, growlmy says.)
Well, something else caught my eye, actually my sniffer. Yummy stuff! By the time growlmy had caught on to this I had cleaned up a whole lot of cookie crumbs…and there was blue icing and easter egg sprinkles on it, Mmmm!
Now how on earth did all those yummy crumbs get on my side of the fence??
The older kids over there know that I am not supposed to have that kind of thing, and they wouldn’t want to share yummy cookies with me anyways.
The youngest rascal over there is about 4 years old. Likely he was the guilty pawrty, BOL!
Goodness only knows why he would want to part with a cookie. And no the icing was a light blue, so still no clue as to how my schnooter turned blue a while ago, Tee-hee!
Monday I was enjoying helping growlmy do her yard work. OMD What a load of limbs and branches came down over the course of our harsh winter.
That stick/wood pile is humongous!
I cannot even try to climb it, its so full of sticks all in a tangle and evfurry-which-way! Only those pesky rude red squirrel dudes are able to maneuver their way through it to the top…where they sit, munching left over 2013 walnuts and taunting me. Grrr!
Well, she was trying to be a lumberjack, and was removing a dead honeysuckle shrub. She must have disturbed a lot of underground varmints…cause suddenly she saw me in pointer mode. And then I pounced…pointed and relocated the sounds,and pounced again…YES! I got it!
A vole. It kept trying to escape, and even tried to dig itself underground again. No Way! I wasn’t going to let it go, I worried it and grabbed it by the neck…and it was a goner. But then growlmy spoiled all my fun…and wasn’t going to let me even try to sample that prize…she gave it a vole funeral, whatever that means, BOL!
And then it tarted to drizzle…sigh…even the weather spoils my fun...
Our yard is already showing lots of those typical trails from the work of all the underground moles, voles, and gophers. UGH, say the pawrents, fun say I!
Growlmy says her work is cut out fur her…so many weeds are already coming up! Sheesh, they are so dang frost hardy and a constant cause of hard labor. And the real gardening work of the season hasn’t even gotten underway!
Today was a great day, about 60 degrees! And sunny all day long!
But…growly couldn’t do anything in the yard…she had to go and find out why one of her tires was looking so tired. OMD! There was a big screw stuck in it. So, well, now her van will need to be retired, but at least it won’t have to go to the pasture, BOL!
I woofed at her furst thing this morning, but she wasn't paying attention to the confuser stuff at all...
She did take care of my food and water and the kitties, too...but then she grabbed some coffee and off she went.
Hey, why didn't you stay here and help me have a fun DDP day, Growlmy? Why?
Sheesh, she said she was going out with the girls. What!?
On my DDP day? Oiy Vey!
She didn't have to go to her work, so she was going to do this fun stuff fur herself...but poor little me...no fun being a DDP and can't dogabrate it.
Well, Cooper saw it, and made a nice picture fur me:
Thanks evfur so much! That picture is my 'giggle-face', BOL! Look at all those pearly whites! OMD! Better not get too close...
Well, when growlmy got back, pawppy was already back from his work...but did she sit down and let me get on the confuser? Nope.
She went to the kitchen and cooked supper. Yes! Well, I got some noms from that...yummy salmon and veggies and sourdough bread. I got the crumbs...and some veggies and a teeny morsel of roasted salmon. But the kitties were not nearby so they got none, BOL! Then I got my own supper! YUM!
Well, after that she had to get things all cleaned up and ready for the morning so pawppy can go to his work with a yummy lunch...and finally I got to see her on the confuser.
She was doing stuff fur the other furry pals again...no offense, but...I am a DDP!
At last it was my turn! Wow! Thanks for all the messages, and prezzies!
What good pals I do have!
The sandhill cranes are coming to the field across the street about daily now, I think they are scouting about to make a nesting site.
Growlmy saw a Great Blue Heron, yesterday. Spring is here...I hope! It rained and rained on Monday night...and now most of our snow has melted and only the remains of the big mountains are still visible.
And go figure...tonight and tomorrow we are under yet another winter weather advisory. OMD! Will it evfur end? This one calls for freezing rain:(
And wouldn't you know it, growlmy has to go to work tomorrow. Maybe by the time she has to leave (2pm) it will be better...or hope against hope, maybe it won't happen at all! BOL!
Well, it is now past 1am here...time for us to all go to bed!
I heard her make another date fur a similar girls day out...on April 30...what??!
That's my Birthday, how dare she do that...peeps seem to think that they are way more important than us pups...sigh...Oiy Vey.
