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
Growlmy got her just rewards…at least in my eyes for abandoning me while she went on her vacation.
She drove to aunties house in pouring rain…had to wait in a traffic snarl due to an accident…and then some dog stole her identity and traded his voice with hers. So now she is barking like a dog. BOL!
And on her drive back she had to wait for yet another accident, and more rain combined with snow showers….UGH!
And she says she feels her vacation was a waste because she was sick…and still is. Off to the peep-vet tomorrow. Running a temp for more than 5 days isn’t good. Sigh. (The only good thing is that she doesn’t have to miss any work for now…she hopes to be feeling well enough by the time she has to resume her duties with her residents…who surely do *not* need any barking dogs taking care of them, BOL!
She can’t talk without coughing like that dog, I wonder what kind of dog it is, I had to have a good sniff of her when she got back. All she had for me was a Christmas collar…OMD! Are you kidding? She says her excuse is…well that barking stuff.
She didn’t even get out her camera for a selfie, today…but she did get one of my doggy cousin Murphy sporting that new collar.
My Great Auntie settled well into her new abode in a long term care facility. She seems happy enough, and is eating better now, so she has regained some strength. She motors around with her walker, though its more of a mental crutch than a mobility aid.
On Nov seventh, she turned 95!
So it was a momentous and busy day.
In the morning coffee was had in an alcove just off of where she has her room…(she is in a huge complex, 6 apartment buildings, and 2 nursing homes, as well as many services such as a bank, a teeny grocery store, 2 hair salons, even a church. All under one roof, all attached by a series of tunnels, like a rabbit warren! Easy to get lost in, but most of the peeps who live there have out all figured out!) (Great Auntie lived in her own apartment there until just now, for 22 years already!)
Everyone passing by said Happy Birthday and stopped to greet the lady of honor.
A cousin who lives in Europe called in via the confuser and Skype, that was fun!
Great Auntie just smiles back, because she is so deaf she can’t hear a thing…
After growlmy was gone, one of her cousins popped in on his lunch hour.
Then she took a rest, and later she was picked up to be driven to another city where growlmy’s other cousins live. And they took her out to dinner…she ate with a voracious appetite! BOL! Must be yummier than the nursing home fare…
Of course they met up with yet another huge traffic jam…and a trip that is about 35 miles took 90 minutes, OMD.The return trip was much faster!
Growlmy says at least she wasn’t barking then yet. Or she might have been thrown out as a doggy impostor!
Now growlmy says that there are almost 100 unread blogs to check out…um…no way will she be able to do that. But she soon will try to pick up on the latest entries.
And maybe even she might find some time or barkless moment to reply to all your comments.
Sorry about being AWOL…or missing important stuff.
Growlmy is going to keep a low profile for a while until she feels better…and gets her own barkless identity back.
Maybe if I furgive her and send her some POTP along with all of you it will help speed the healing up?
Oh dear me, My pirate swashbuckling self was not allowed by my captain-growlmy to get on here today, so I missed sending out those pawsome pirate flags.
I shall just get back into my galleon and sail away to some isolated island and lick my wounded psyche...BOL! Arrgghhhh!
I appawlogize if it becomes a pirate to do that, esp a swashbuckler like I...otherwise I shall make growlmy walk the plank fur her misdemeanor and falling short of the pirates standard...to be there fur the boss! BOL! Arrgghhhhh!
Dogster is doing evfur sooooooooo much better today!
I only seem to have a wee trouble when I want to make a comment somewhere, but I can get there with a bunch of extra clickings. I am becoming clicker trained, BOL!
Thank Woofs I-5 Publishing fur working so furry hard and with great diligence to fix our most beloved site(s).
I am so gratefur!
Through this long deflea-ing process I am revved up and ready to woof and bark all around, but growlmy is busy with tons of not doggy stuff these days, so you may notice that I am not sending out art works lately...I do a-paw-logize.
And well, I do know that I have missed lots of doings and spawsial dates, too. Sorry and please let me hug you ((( ♥ ))) to make it up!
I hope all is well with my many furry pals and their furmilies.
I have missed you all!
