OMD!! I have been informed by my good pal Riley, in Canada that I have one of my 'Canadian' pics featured on the Dogster FB page.
Its a repeat per-fur-mance! Pipo, that silly smacky pawed kitty-brofur of mine is featured too, on the Catster FB page...Poor Minko...will he get a turn?? BOL! Well, not on the Dogster FB page anyways, BOL!
So what gives with all these featured pics from our furmily?? I know that there are other good ones too?? But its OK, I love attention, I nevfur get enough, BOL!!
(Thanks Riley, else I wouldn't have even known about it, since FB is not part of our daily doings here...)
Here is a screen shot of the pic in case you didn't get to see it:

And since this is being written in Dogster time, I can still say it:
Happy Canada Day!
Now I need to help guard the peeps while they sleep...

OMD! I got some interesting woofs from Ernie George and his furmily, today.
While EG was snoopervising the world on this globe from the Earth-viewing window, he saw that I was a featured pic on the Dogster FB page.
So he told his Mama with some angelic woofs to let me know...and sure enough, there I was!
Growlmy would nevfur have know this, because we do not 'do' FB here...but we still could see the page and read some of the comments. How Cool!
I had no idea I was that furmouse!
Shall I thank Dogster fur using my pic?? I do wish they would tell me when they use one of my tags...but whatevfur...my pics are 'open' so I guess its OK...now more peeps might send their pups to visit here in Dogsterland!
And...it is evfur so stinking hot...UGH!
The official temp was 98, with a heat index of 105...I think I could actually cook an egg fur my supper out on the sidewalk!
I got a couple of 'keep cool pools' on my page now, so that helps!
Thanks to the pups who sent those to me.
Today the annual 'Field of Flight' started, with hot air balloons...bark-bark-woof-barkety-bark...and an air show, too. Tonight there is a launch of balloons, a 'balloon illume' and other junk...growlmy has tickets to all 4 days of this event, but with the weather being way too hot, she might decide its safer to stay home, considering she just got over that EeeBeeVee junk...and she hates hot weather at the best of times!
Saturday and Sunday the Thunderbirds will be showing off their talents.
Now that will be worth getting hot over, BOL!
Howevfur, there is no question if I should go and bark at all the doings over there, there is a sign posted: No Pets Allowed...
Ah, well, it is nice & cool in my den!

Ok pupses...growlmy went back to work,and did not have to leave early or go back to the dogtor fur peeps...Hooray!
But now she said she is staying away from there fur about 12 days...she said it was called va-cat-ion! What, cats?? They are making her stay home?
What, oh she meant she got to take some time off work and gets paid fur it...yeah!! That means more time with me!
And since we have had a bit of cooler weather, I got some of my strolls in again. I got to meet one of the ladies that walks with the LWD lady...and she gave me a treat, YUM!
And I munched some grass when growlmy picked some wild blackberries. She said they are very yummy, but to me they are gross, and I much prefer the grass...growlmy says that one day I may start to chew my cud, BOL!
Speaking of grass, our yard is brown and crunchy, and not very comfortable to lie on...it is so dry, even the drought resistant plants we have here are wilting.
Could you pupses do a rain dance fur us here? There is rain in other parts of the state, but it just teases us with a drip or two, and then stops. Other parts of the country have far too much rain. UGH!
I still am not getting any notifications, it feels like us furs are in solitary confinement...GRRR!
Soon it will be Canada Day! Hooray for Canada having a birthday! 145 years!
And then it will be July Fourth, USA's birthday, otherwise known as Independence Day.
Pawppy has tickets for the annual Balloon Festival and Air Show which is held here in Battle Creek at this time of the year.
I think that is why growlmy took va-cat-ion...The Thunderbirds will be here for two days, and those hot air balloons which I love so much...NOT!
So I will have to make sure the right flags get flown here...one year we had the Canadian Snow Birds, maybe some time in the future they will come back to fly for us.
A few days ago, my Auntie came over for a couple of days...but when she came, and I went outside to look, there was no Murphy, and only faint remains of his scent on her...I looked all over fur him, even in her bags...but alas he was not there...she says he makes too much noise in her car...he hates to travel. Anyways since it was over 90 degrees when she was here, it was probably better that he got to have a stay-cat-ion with his neighbors.
Then all my furmily went out for several hours...to visit my boss-boy...but I wasn't invited, because all the seats in the car were taken, and well, you know, us pupses have to stay home to do guard duty...I got to sniff on growlmy & Pawppy where they had given my boss-boy a hug or two...
When Auntie left to back to her den, I rubbed all over her legs so that Murphy could sniff my greetings!
Today, growlmy went to fetch something out of the shed...a patio umbrella.
Well, she was 'grossed out'! I heard her yell, yuck, and ugh and gross, and to me she said, stay away.
She wanted to start using it to make some shade to sit under, but that umbrella had been in storage for quite a long time...and now the edges were all chewed up, and there was other fluff and pieces of fabric inside the storage bag and the folds of the umbrella fabric...UGH!
Growlmy said it looked like a mouse furmily had been sleeping there quite cozily, but her umbrella was ruined and unusable. Doesn't she know that in order fur me to do proper varmint control, I need to get access to the inside of that shed?? BOL!

Well pups and peeps...growlmy got all the results of her lab work and junk from the other day..and all is good...except that the one thing we checked sort of as an afterthought turned out to be the BINGO one, BOL! Well, not really, BOL, growlmy apparently has the common to young people illness called Mono...a common name fur this is called the 'Kissing' illness, but I just know that I didn't kiss her with any EBVirus...sigh...anyways, after resting up pretty much for the last 10 days or so, growlmy was told by the MD that she should be able to go back to work.
Hmmm, she hopes she will not fade away into that fatigue and fever and nasty headache once she starts running around over there...it is not a pawlace for sitting around.
Time will tell and they do know what growlmy was dealing with so I guess I can let her go.
Today was my pawppy's birthday. I watched with avid interest as growlmy made a cake, but alas she didn't let me taste any of it...she said chocolate was bad fr pups, whatevfur...then they went out at supper, so I wasn't able to snag any goodies that way either, and no doggie bag came home...sigh...but I did give pawwpy a big loving sloppy kiss, BOL!
Speaking of viruses, I am still not getting any emails about comments made on other furs pics and diaries...growlmy got a letter from HQ saying they were checking it out...fleas, don't you just love em? NOT!

Today is the 10th time of dogabrating this day fur me!
A long time ago, when I was a wee one, I only weighed 2.5 pounds. My bed was a dishpan, my toys were bigger than me,and there were those cats...OMD! At least one of them became a nice soft and warm pillow, may he RIP, I do miss him. Minko is furendly to me, but he will not share a nest...sigh.
My inbox is full of gifts and Pmails!
Thanks to all of you, and lots of doggy love, too!
Growlmy is getting slowly better, at least the headaches are gone.
I am also back to my normal barking self.
Now I shall have to go and beg growlmy to do something spawsial fur my dogabratory day!
Are any of you furs having trouble getting comment notification emails, as in when other furs make comments on pics or diaries? We are getting none, even though we make sure that little box is checked...a flea??

Growlmy is stumbling around my den like a drunk, she holds her head, sits for hours in the recliner, and doesn't even give me any walks, let alone do yard work that needs my snoopervision and help...
She has a temp, a very sore head...she calls it the 'Mother of all headaches'. She aches all over, has a racing pulse, and her BP is too high, likely all symptoms of whatevfur is is she is trying to fight off.
She went to an urgent care on June 2, but all they did was tell her she had a bad migraine. Sheesh!
So tomorrow she sees her own MD to help solve the puzzle.
Sorry that we haven't been around that much...confusers are not made for achy heads, BOL!
Well, that's all fur now, will make an update here when I can...
Off to bed, now...

Yesterday when growlmy went to her ladies day away, she told the unfurbro and pawppy to leave me in my yard and back porch, I can come and go in there, there are 2 beds and a full water bowl. This gives the kitties a holiday too, at least that is what growlmy says...
When pawppy came home all seemed well he said.
When growlmy came home, I greeted her with my tail at half mast...and not too much excitement.
I was not interested in her snack food, I didn't even beg!
When she opened the fridge and some bags of food were rustled, I didn't come to see if there were nom-noms.
As soon as growlmy sat down, I made a huge pukey-puddle in the middle of the hallway, on the carpet of course...it was mostly liquid, no grass or junk was visible...gross huh?
Soon I did that huffing of my ribcage...I guess that is how a pup gags & retches...so I was shepherded outdoors...where I did a lot more of that before I heaved up a huge yucky mass...of green leaves, not grass but some plant.
OMD! Growlmy knows I nibble on some of our weeds, now and then, but I have nevfur gobbled a meal from them...
So when I was done, I just crawled under her chair and curled up in a ball, and trembled a bit, and got up to have some water, now and then...and just befur growlmy went to bed, I went outdoors again...UGH!
I did not eat my bedtime doggy cookie treats that I have each night.
But because Pipo and Minko were sniffing at them, I picked one up and took it up to the landing where I sleep when growlmy and the furmily go to bed...that way I can guard them better.
This morning that treat was gone...and soon I remembered the other one and gobbled it up too. I went for my morning 2 mile stroll as usual, and begged my treats from the ladies that walk the LWD...(Schatzie). I even stuck my schnooter in one lady's pockets to make sure they were empty!
So when I got home, growlmy fed me my breakfast, but I only picked at it. By the time growlmy went to work, there was still about half left..Not my style at all! I am a gobbler - vacuumer of my noms.
Growlmy cooked me up some tasty chicken and brown rice and gave me a few bites...no pukes! Wonders... She didn't see/hear me do any, so she left for her work thinking I was 'cured'...
Well, unfurbro said that when he and pawppy came home after about 3 hours of me being alone in the house, because it was rather cool in the back porch, the weather threatened rain, and growlmy didn't want me eating weeds again...unfurbro said he had found another big barf on the floor!
Growlmy is not sure what is going on, though tonight I am acting normal, and I did beg for some of her snack food...I even dug a chewy stick out of my stash hidden away for times when growlmy doesn't give me a fresh one...and no more barfs.
She hopes the barfing machine has gone into retirement, because she has had way too much of those kinds of presents from me...
So the next day will tell...and she sure hopes the issue is over or I will be going for a car ride to you know where...

Growlmy was gone all day almost...it was my chance!
When she came home after about 7 hours of letting me do guard duty and patrolling my yard...she opened the gate and saw that I was covered in big greenish brown splotches, and I was rather stinky to boot. Also the flies were swarming all around me in a cloud, like the dust clouds that surround Linus in the Peanuts comic strip...
She groaned within herself, and she asked me what I had done this time...to which all I could reply was with a big joyful wag of my pleasure meter!
She could see that I had been rolling, but she was confused as to what I could have gotten into!
I led her right to it. MY PRIZE!
Another groundhog-pup...Goodgrief, growlmy exclaimed, how did you find yet another? UGH! She hopes that this will be the end of my project of decimating a groundhog furmily:( Even though she is no furend of those varmints she thinks they do not deserve to feel my teeth, much less be killed so ruthlessly.) Hey growlmy! I am a terrierist, remember?! It is my JOB!
Anyways, I had rolled my self with the delicious scent and remains of that critter, and the flies now thought I was yummy, too, BOL!
So after growlmy gave yet another funeral, I felt shortchanged because once again, she had stolen my prize...sigh...
Then she went inside the house, but I wasn't allowed in there...when she came out again, she was armed! With bath equipment! Oh-oh!
So not only did she steal my yummy snack, and perfumed body rub, she washed me with the hose in the garden...at least it was hot out. I paid her back by shaking my wet self so that she got wet, too, BOL!
Then I got a major case of the zoomies and went nutzo all around the yard, in the house, around and around I went...and soon I was dry again!
Growlmy said she hopes there are no more relatives of this furmily to get through our fence fabric and into my jaws...and she nevfur wants to see a swarm of flies around me either!

Growlmy went to see her Oncologist, today.
She got a furry good report,and all is well.
She doesn't have to go back there for six months, now...and if all stays well, then she will go to yearly visits.
Praise The Lord!!
I pray that evfurryone who may have to endure any form of this scourge called Cancer, may also find healing.
Now I have another good reason to snag another critter for her...BOL!!

Pups, I am feeling really young...I did it again!
I snatched up another critter and dumped at growlmy's paws...this time it was a young groundhog...there were two that I spotted trespassing near the wooded part of my yard...so I charged out like a bolt of lightening to bark them out...or snag them...well, they were not full grown, so the furst one got through the fence fabric, but the second was too sluggish from filling his belly with my weeds, (BOL), and I got him...and after I proudly presented my offering and gift to growlmy she once again proclaimed me to be a monster and expressed great horror...with some not fur Dogster language...and again she stole that lovely bit of a tasty snack...and 'funeralised' it, too, just like that squirrel...Sheesh! Shucks!
I will nevfur understand why it is that peeps do not appreciate the gifts we place befur them in grateful thanks fur being our pawrents and taking such good care of us. I thought she would like to have some help with the groceries...
Maybe if BossBoy would teach me how to use our grill, then maybe I might even get to taste some of the critters I so carefur-ly hunt...
