Big Woofs, Brave Growlmy and Donkey Lessons

Well the world's turmoils and troubles seem to have became like a bottomless pit. Growlmy and so many others are pawyering for peace and a return to normalcy.

Things at my den at least, are rather quiet, (except for my barking...), and normal. I am not complaining about that at all!

Growlmy got really brave the other day! She made backgrounds for my page and for the kitties, too. So now we all are really green!
I guess growlmy still has stuff to learn about doing this kind of thing, but when things were not quite right, she was able to fix it, that was the really brave part, to go and mess with the 'codes' she had put in the bio-fields.
The trick will be to make new backgrounds to keep abreast of all the seasons and holidays!
I gave her a high five for this gain in her talent bank. Kudos, Growlmy!

Yesterday I got into a fit of barking, and growlmy looked outside...sure enough I was not crying wolf at all. There were 6 or perhaps more deer in the neighbours yard. This time they did not leave too fast when they saw & heard me...I think they are getting used to my noises and realize that is all I can do...I never get the pleasure of giving chase! Eventually with their tails a-flicking at me they sauntered off. Growlmy was glad that they didn't head for the road, they went further into the back woods, along the creek.

On Sunday a.m. when I got let out at a too early time, because someone came along at 2 am and stole an hour from us...I charged out of my doggy door a roaring and barking really loud...to wake the other neighbors...BOL! There were a bunch of crows trespassing over there, and I had to make sure they left...they did...but I still don't know why growlmy & pawppy were laughing at me?!

Yesterday was so nice that I got to go for my walk 'au naturel'! No coat! Yeah! Not so, today, it was 25F...so that meant I had to wear a coat again...but at least it was dry, because right now and for several hours it has been drizzling. UGH! But it will help to get rid of some more of the leftover snowpiles.

Today when we were walking, we saw some red breasted nuthatches. Those are not nearly as common as the white breasted ones. Smaller, too.
We saw dozens of robins, and there were geese perusing the swollen banks of the creek, apparently making decisions about family matters. Also saw several sandhill cranes. They are so raucous in their calls.

At one house we saw a pittie gal, who was barking her head off at us. Never saw her before, I guess she is new there...
Have not seen little Chloe since last week.

Well, I mentioned bottomless pits and sand, so here is an interesting tale...about a donkey:


Donkey Lessons

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

MORAL :
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

And think about these things:

Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

2. Free your mind from worries - Most never happens.

3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less from people but more from God.

God bless us all!
Have a great night, and wonderful tomorrow!

Woofs!
