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
Furstly I need to say my thank woofs fur all those gifts on my page…the freebies that is…bad dogretary only was answering my rosettes and others…not the freebies…something about so many she couldn’t keep up. Hey, I pay her with all my loving woofs & licks and she doesn’t send thanks out fur me?? Well, woofs to you growlmy! BOL!
Well, now about my trouble…
I get my teeth brushed evfurry night befur I go to my nest. I am almost 12, and have not evfur needed my teeth cleaned at the vet joint. Hooray!
The vet always says she can tell my teeth are cleaned at home, and they look good.
Well, now the other night, growlmy noticed I was flinching when she brushed on the one side. I nevfur do that. Then she saw blood on the brush. What? OMD.
That was strange indeed. Growlmy stopped and let me go, she thought maybe she had been ovfurly vigorous. The next evening, same thing…So she took a good look in my mouth…and OMD, there was a tooth that appeared to be cracked. How on earth did I do that?
Well at least the mystery was solved. And this morning she found that loose piece on the floor…and then I heard her talking on her communication device…and making an appointment with the vet lady…YIKES!
Growlmy thinks that tooth will have to come out, it is shattered, painful to touch, and an open invitation fur infection…and other awful things…
Could you all keep me in your thoughts, on March 12th…
I will let you know what happens in an update after that. Meanwhile I don’t seem to have trouble eating or woofing…like at the furnace man who had to pay us a maintenance visit…and I still am going outside to see if I can convince Miss Daisy to come and play…but she declined today. Oh well, at least it was nice and sunny again…three days in a row, we are breaking records here, BOL!
Yup, I did…snow cover didn’t stop me either…
Well, I was barking my head off, and so growlmy said…go outside and bark there.
And Miss Daisy was there! OMD…Little pup that she is, she doesn’t fall into the deep snows like I do…and she walked over here, presumably to sniff my yard along the fence…but because she was higher than the barricade at the gate…she squeezed right through it! And so I saw her, making tracks all over what was still my pristine yard.
Off I ran as fast as I could in that deep snow, and what a funny looking set of tracks I left.
I had to play/ romp/ frolick with her. We played chase me all around the yard, and catch me if you can, and of course there was a barkfest going on too.
It was fun, but then I had to come inside to rest my old doggy bones fur a while. She didn’t come back…and growlmy hopes she doesn’t make a habit of this…
You know what?!?
We have had two days in a row of sunshine! OMD! And today it was about 30F. Balmy by comparison the other arctic temps we had a while back.
Well, that’s about if fur now.
Growlmy had to go to work, and she said it was a really insane time there of insufficient staff, due to abrupt quitting of some…and illness of others…and new admissions. PHEW! She is glad she is off tomorrow again. Maybe things will be calmer over the weekend.
She also got to say goodbye to a resident who finished enough rehab to go home! She was bedridden and now can do some walking…hooray!
Hmmm….. Is the calendar correct? It is March 4,and Spring is March 21. What? It seems rather topsy-turvey to me. We have about 3 feet of snow on the ground (or more maybe…), snow walls around 5 feet high along the walks, and snow mountains about 7 feet high at the end of our driveway. Walks as I knew them haven’t happened in like forever because of all the sidewalks being covered, and walking along the side of the highway is just too dangerous when there is no way to get out of the way…usually on the highway sidewalk less part of my stroll through our village, I can walk in the grassy area of the shoulder, but there is no way to do anything like that now…And the back lane where there is hardly any traffic at all, is too icy…sigh…and I can’t even run in my own yard since the snow is so deep I fall into it. Even though growlmy has cleared my some pathways off from the sidewalk when I walk on the snow there, I loose my footing and sink in…though one day those rascally squirrel dudes taunted me so much I did try to…but those naughty varmints just laughed at me and got away up into their tree and in my wood pile, GRRR!
We were told by the weatherman dude that more snow was possible today, but hooray it didn’t happen!
Something else that didn’t happen was…Dogster did not die yesterday! OMD! Lovely it is, to be able to be here and woof as usual with my furends…and blogging is fun too…but now growlmy says she has even more to do, BOL!
Unfurbro is home this week, and he is on spring break, BOL! Spring indeed…He is a senior at college, and is job seeking…in structural engineering, OMD!
He also got accepted into Grad School at his college, (University of Michigan), congrats to him!
But Boss-boy didn’t come with him cause he no longer goes to school, and he is working. I do get to see him a couple of times a month when he comes for dinner…weather permitting…sheesh we had to all stay put around here several times this long cold winter!
Now March is green month, but of course right now its still Christmas on my page, BOL! I would go to a blank Dogster page, but then all the other stuff in my biofields would go poof, so I will just enjoy the Christmas!
Well, I need to go and do some barking at the snowmobiles out there, in my field across the street…and then its nighty-night fur all of us here.
