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:
Cooper's Picture He made for my DDP on April second. Thanks!
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.

Blue Smiles Along With YOU!
Some of you might remember this slogan for some good Canadian beer…
But tonight I greeted growlmy with a big blue smile…OMD!
She went to work as usual, and later pawppy came home…and then much later growlmy got back. I was all barky at something in the backyard , sheesh, its been a long time since I was able to do that, the snow piles are finally receded enough, and lo and behold the grass is showing again!
Of course you all know from my last entry what that means…BOL!
Anyways, my schnooter is BLUE!
And the pawrents have no idea why!
Nothing amiss inside the den, and of course its too dark to inspect the great outdoors…and I am not going to reveal any good secrets…teehee.
I wonder how long it will be fur this mystery to be solved?
And, no I didn’t drink any beer, blue or otherwise...

Its that time of the year when the peeps have to get out the heavy duty pooper scooper...
I am feeling lots better, I finished my medicines, and am eating normally again. And my barker is working just fine. Sheesh, when it was quiet, growlmy worried about that, now she wishes it would be quiet…it is hard to please our peeps sometimes, BOL!
I didn’t have the poopy troubles for more than a day, because right away I got to take lots of human grade probiotics, plus some pumpkin. I will keep using those probiotics, they are good fur us pups as well as peeps…to keep the poops good, BOL!
After all the snow we had last week, there has not been anymore. We have had a fair bit of rain and days of sunshine and temps above freezing. So lots of the snow piles are shrinking in height…and OMD, I can see grass here and there. It is still hard to run around in the yard, because what snow cover is left is furry soft and I sink into it. Only time lately I *can* get on it, is early in the morning if the frost has been on it.
And with the melting snows…come other types of piles…um…well, any dog peep will know what I mean, BOL! The other day, growlmy filled up eight bagfuls…wowee!
That was just from the edges of the yard…now when the snows are all gone…YIKES! I think there may be way more than eight bags full…now growlmy is humming something silly…baa-baa-black sheep…have you any (doo)? Yes sir, yes sir, many bags full! ♪
Growlmy had a time of not being able to bark either…something she referred to as Larry N Gitus. All she said was croak and squeak…not sure which critter she wanted to be; a frog or a mousie! Well she is over that rough part though she still sounds diffurent than usual…
Well, spring is supposed to be sprung out of hiding according to the calendar, I sure hope so!
I posted some pictures in my blog, since I can't add anymore here, I am almost at 200, BOL!

I am a loopy, droopy poopy…well, a pup but poopy none the less…
I had to go to the vet pawlace this morning.That was quite a feat in itself. There was over nine inches of new heavy wet snow to clear away, and then the icy roads to boot. It took growmly forever to get there, she crawled along and took the long way because those roads are better maintained. There had not yet been a plow to clear the roads…
And no one told me why I couldn’t eat any breakfast this morning, I felt so cheated.
No breakfast, a ride in the car and cold weather…and then to get to that vet pawlace…those peeps tried to see my toothies, and I didn’t want to let them BOL! So growlmy opened my mouth and they got to see my broken tooth from a distance…oh MY they said.
Well, then I got to go with them to another room…
Much later I was feeling rather loopy, and now why did my whole mouth hurt when only one toothie was broke?
And then I got to see growlmy. My tail was at half mast, and only a tad of a wag. Droopy.
And I was walking so drunkedly…still loopy!
Oops! They had to take me back, because there was doo-doo on my paw…poopy, remember?
Growlmy emptied her pockets for the lady at the desk and after the ransom was paid, I was allowed to leave with her…but first I had to leave my opinion on the snow banks there…a p-mail…and then another poopy…yup, still poopy.
I got lifted into the van and we drove home…the roads were a lot better, because the plow had done some work.
At home, pawppy was outside with his shovel…still clearing away the huge dump. Growlmy had been assisting, and between them they likely shoveled for about 8 hours. OMD…
And so I did a welcome back p-mail on the newly extended heightened snow mountain base and yup…another poopy!
Then I sat and watched the snow cleaning operations. And trembled and shook, and went to snoopervise and decided to go back inside and on and on like that. When growlmy came inside, she had to pick me up and put me in my nest…I was still so furry loopy.
After a while she tried to help me eat…nah…not now growlmy…but later I licked a wee bit. And she gave me a pain medicine…which helped to make me more loopy. And an antibiotic, which naturally will help to make sure I still will be poopy. Right now I am feeling droopy, not kitty watching, nor did I go and beg fur salad items as I like to to at dinner time.
I have not barked at all since coming back! Wow! Growlmy actually wishes I would though.
The vet lady said she took out the offending tooth, and found a few more that had some degree of breakage on them, OMD! I must have been gnawing on rocks! Well, no, I do not do that as far as growlmy knows. Who knows? Its my secret…
Vet peeps also polished all my teeth…so now I am all sparkly, even though I feel loopy and droopy…
They also said my creatine level was elevated, (BUN was normal), so I need to go back there for a recheck in a couple of weeks…sheesh in September all was just fine with that.
I guess I will need to watch what I am eating to prevent a fast progression of this kidney trouble, They say its because I am an old man pup now…
Well, I need to do some sleeping off of these drugs...

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!

I was frolicking today!
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!
Well, nighty-night to all and to all good woofs!

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.

A Pee-Pea Fest!
You read it right!
I had a pea-pee fest…or was it pee-pea…well, no matter I had one, BOL!
Growlmy went to the grocery store as she often does when she doesn’t have to go to her job. She says she has to get ‘provisions’.
When she came back, I ran right out and added some new decor to our snow walls…that is the pee fest part…nothing unusual there, BOL! You pals all thought you were gonna read about puddles or something…got ya! BOL!
Well I *did* have a pea fest!
Growlmy was putting away her groceries. She picked up the little packets of frozen veggies, and I followed her to the freezer. Well, I always need to snoopervise her you know…good thing! The one bag started to release its contents…and before growlmy knew what was happening, a large number of frozen peas spilled out all over the floor! YUM! SCORE! It was my furry own Pea Festival. I LOVE frozen peas! Yes I surely do…I forgot all about the rest of the groceries that needed to be inspected and I crunched them all away. Growlmy did not have to bend over to get any of them little green balls. It was a win-win!
The best part was, that if this was a controlled situation, I would nevfur have gotten so many! BOL!
And I wish we could see our yard as green as those peas, cause there was some more snow today…about 2 inches…not fair:(
But, the stuff that is there is now nice and firm, so I can walk all over it…like this: Take a few steps, fall in…take a few more steps, slide and fall, take a few more steps, and mark the tree with…not peas, and then continue in like manner to where all the squirrel dudes have been doing their thing, sheesh, it smells like squirrel there, Grrr.
So I had to do some more not peas and then I decided it was too cold fur my elderly bones and I made the trek back…
And now I am resting in my doggy nest awaiting the next day's dogventures…and dreaming about yummy peas!
