Time fur Silver!
Not an Olympic Medal, but something far better, I think...
Today was spawsial here! Furry spawsial!
Growlmy and pawppy dogabrated 25 years of being married...well, no, they didn't dogbrate, the celebrated! BOL!
Twenty five years on the 25th! Imagine that!
I got to sniff the basket that held almonds and chocolate all those years ago, and though I tried furry hard, there was not a crumb left!
Minko tried to help me, but he couldn't find any either...
Pipo wasn't interested in helping when I was around, so he missed out in furmily furtrait making, too.
Then after being home with me all day, then pawppy came home from his work. All together!
But...soon I had to do houseguard duty again, and they left me and went to find some tasty nom-noms...without any of us furs...sigh...
This morning befur pawppy went to his job, there was some mushy junk going on...and again this evening...I guess after all those years its OK, right??
Happy Anniversary Growlmy & Pawppy!
(Today was furry hot, humid and there even was some raindrops to increase the ick factor...just like 25 years ago, growlmy said, except this time there was A/C and there was A/C in the restaurant they went to also...which necessity had broken down at the reception hall back in 1987, it was that hot! UGH! Well if they got through a day like that, then all will be well...and it still is, BOL!)

Good grief! That is what growlmy was thinking today...it was stinky hot again, so when she was trying to leave to do errands, I had to stay in the house, instead of guarding it from the yard...shucks, I missed all the fun, and I barked so loud that growlmy could hear it, which only added to the good grief factor, BOL!
When she had the doors locked, she saw Bandit at the wrong neighbors yard, Oh-oh!
He was all wet, too...likely had been in the creek behind our yards.
Well he was so happy to see growlmy that he tried to come in MY yard when she opened the gate to leave...um...not good timing, Bandit!
So she called him and directed him to his own yard, and told him to stay...he laid down, but as soon as she turned to go back to her car, well, he followed her, BOL! He was in play mode, and frisky too!
So...growlmy thought she had heard noise from within his house, so she convinced Bandit to follow her again, to the steps of their back door...and sure enough, someone opened the door and he ran right in! Hooray!
Growlmy now was giggling along with the good grief feelings, because she heard the girl say...'Eeuuwwwww! He's all wet!' Payback time, BOL!
Well after all that she could hear me yapping with envy at not being included in all this fracas.
Good Grief, I wanted to help her!
Well pals, she didn't even come back in the house to check on me, but she got right into her car and drove off...and didn't get back until after pawppy came home to let me out...but Bandit wasn't out where I could have a woofy chat with him...Good grief!
Growlmy told pawppy that she wasted 20 minutes of her time to get Bandit under control...and she is hoping this doesn't get to be regular, rescuing the neighbor's pups...remember the episode in the winter? She still has an ouchy wrist! Good Grief!!

Drums...growlmy has a huge bunch of those, all tiny and attached to a figure representing the drummers from various military regiments, etc.
Some peeps would know them as nutcrackers,as indeed many are, but there are a lot that are not...but this report is not about growlmy or her drummers...its about doldrums...
We got those here in huge doses...heat induced doldrums...and esp noticeable in my old aged dog-guy body...too darn hot! Sheesh, will it evfur cool down...and rain?? I don't remember what that is, BOL! At least I mean it sure feels like I could be furgetting what its like! Seriously, the rain comes in huge amounts, but there must be a dome over our area...sigh...
Well, I plop down under growlmy's desk chair if she is there, then growl at her if she dares to jiggle me with her feet by mistake..(Growlmy says that hot weather makes peeps and furs a lot more cranky than normal...), then I go and lounge under the dining room table, keeping watch ovfur the doings in the den...then I feel chilled by that overworked A/C, and have to go outside to bake under that hot sun...ooh that feels good on my aging bones...and when I get too broiled, I go back in the den and the whole routine starts ovfur again...sigh...Growlmy hasn't even taken me fur any strolls lately:(
Doldrums = Bored!
The ground is so dry and hard I can't even dig in it...
The grass is all dead, so even if I wanted to, there's none to munch on, so I have tried some daisy type hardier plants, but those don't taste too good...
The goats next door seem to be more adapted to this strange climate we are enduring, they just nibble here and there and evfurry where...then they have the nerve to walk along MY fence and they rub their furs all over it...if it wasn't strong enough they would knock/push it down, BOL!
At least they are fun to go and bark at and therm they either run away, or they stomp at me and try to head butt me through the fence, BOL!!
A bright spot in my doldrummer doggy days...sigh...

Thanks HQ fur fixing that huge flea, HQ!

Growlmy went out to the woodsy part of our yard today..to see if the weeds back there needed to be cut down. They seem to grow faster than anything else, even in dry conditions...but no..fur the most part they were dead, dying, roasted and wilted and just plain parched beyond any growth. Their stubble from when they last got mowed, hurts my paws when i walk over it, even the grass leftover feel hard, crunchy and unpleasant. Peeps wear shoes or other foot gear, but us pups do not usually have anything other than bare naked feet...the goats next door have it better, they have hard hooves, BOL!
OMD! We are in desperate need of rain. Growlmy thought we were going to have some yesterday, there were about 10 drops/plops of rain on her windshield, but no more...what a tease!
Well, what are we going to do? I can bark, some peeps would do a rain dance...but growlmy just pawrays...please send us rain.

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:
MJF on Facebook
Here is a copy of the comments as of this writing:
MJF on Facebook...the Comments as of 1159, EDST, July 1, 2012
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!
