Well, she almost missed it, BOL! Silly dogretary.
I am a DDP and she didn't pay it any attention till the day is almost done, Sheesh!
She *did* do kitty stuff...but doggy stuff? Not yet. Something about chores...
Well, at least she didn't have to go to work today, BOL!
Thanks for the messages and gifts! You pups are so faithfur and such great pals!

Yesterday the day started out with...you guessed it...more snow. UGH! YUCK! I am done with snow thank you furry much, but the snow machne didn't hear me.
Then it began to pour, and pour and it thundered and lightninged too, Wow!
And today the temps have gone way below freezing and the wind is rough and wild. It blew down a bunch of small branches so that the yard's snow cover looks like it has sprinkles all over it, BOL! It even blew off growlmy's permanently affixed tree trunk butterfly...Hmmm I guess it wasn't so permanent afterall. It broke in half. Shucks, she really liked it, it was a present from my Auntie, and it came from Europe...oh well, now the garden stores around here can sell her another newer one, BOL!

Well, pawppy just got in, from a late meeting...so now I shall run off to woof & lick him...

WOOFS!

 

Wowee!!

Wowee!
I am so happy!!
When growlmy showed me that green sign at the top of the dogster page, I barked with glee...because its so good to know we are not getting the kick in the booty. Hooray!
I still know that growlmy saved all of our profiles so just in case ...we have ourselves a back up...and we fur sure will be updating those back ups regularly...growlmy says live and learn. What I did learn that thought there are lots of fleas here that frustrate us immensely, we still could visit and woof with our pals whenever we wanted...and what we had though not pawrfect was way better than not having it at all.
So thanks to whomevfur helped save us all!

And:
Long Live Dogster!!

Growlmy still has her picture/badge making shoppe in temporarily closed mode...not that she doesn't love our pals,she is time challenged of late...and when we reopen it, it may be that her pics will be done by request only, or limited to some particular event...growlmy was spending sometimes longer hours making them than she was doing her job at the nursing home, BOL!

Well, growlmy has to go on a belated Valentine's Day dinner date with pawppy, because she was at her job lat night...

toodles!

Woofs!

 

Dogabrating DOTW In Style...

February 10th 2014 9:06 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 6 people already have ]

I am still reeling from being DOTW last week!
It was a lot of fun fur sure, though. And just in the nick of time too...
This morning I saw that my window seat has been given to Hershey the Mini Schnauzer! Congrats to her fur sure!

I got so much mail, and gifts that growlmy as dogretary could hardly keep up...cause the snow was taking up a ton of her time, and pawppy's too, Grrr. That snow machine is parked over our area and it dumps on us all the time, sheesh yet again yesterday we had a good 5 or 6 inches. We do not know where to pile it up.

Some of the snow piles are like mountains, and they are taller than the fencetop...growlmy is hoping I don't get it into my terrier head to go mountain climbing...cause how would I get back inside the yard. She says it IS a good thing that I truly do not care for snow games at all! Well, maybe looking at them on TV as in the 2014 Winter Oil-Limp-Pics!

And though she has made a narrow path all the way around the house, and cleared the sidewalks I still can't just run out to the far back woodsy area. Those squirrel dudes are sitting on the wood pile taunting me and I can't chase them, the snow in the yard is way deeper than I am tall, in fact its past growlmy's knees...
So I use the snow-walls as the boards to put my p-mails on...and go a wee way into the path to do ...you know...the thaw later in the can't get here soon enough spring is going to yield up lots and loads to bag up....BOL!

Growlmy had to go to her job a few evenings too...appawrently that pawlace doesn't stop fur thing like DOTW's, BOL!
And of course like so many of you she is learning new tricks to help me and my kitties keep in touch, after the curtains close here, it makes her head spin, OMD!
And she is copying our pages too, using that HTTrack! Wow, that is way cool the way it works. Only she had to do revisions of our pages, cause Buddy's kind dad was finding things that needed to be tweaked so that things will work later when growlmy and all of you want to see our profiles as they appear here. (Thanks, Buddy & Abby-Angel's Dad)

Wait till you all hear how I dogabrated the last evening of my DOTW...

Pawppy had done a lot of snow clearing, whilst growlmy was at her work, yup, she has to work alternate weekends...then he made himself a sandwich, and after clearing things up, he went to bed, likely around 8:30pm or 9pm, because he has to get up furry early to go to his work...anywoofs,
Growlmy doesn't get back herself till about 11:30pm. So I was alone, pawppy said I was napping on my couch nest.
Growlmy came in later...and OMD!
I had been dogabrating! With some kitty help, no; maybe they even did it all by themselves, then I helped...BOL!

Well, growlmy saw the trash can was lying open on the floor, there was shredded paper evfurry where, and sparkling containers that had previously held lunchmeat, and ice cream, and yogurt...and others. The shredded paper had been the bag that held pawppy's bread, I ripped it into confetti looking for crumbs...
What a royal mess, as befits a pup who was king of Dogsterland, well, fur a week anyways! I needed to dogabrate and pawrty, you know, yes?
Though I did say that Pipo & Minko started it...
So Growlmy with her tired body from her job at the nursing home, had to clean up, mop up and make sure I was OK...yup, I was!!
Pups you should have been here, it was furtastic indeed!
I have no idea why the trash bin was emptied after my pawrents finished supper tonight...

Today growlmy spent yet more time outside doing battle with that evfur falling snow...pawppy said that by next week we may get rain? OMD! Now that should make fur interesting conditions in my snow-mountain range.

Woofs!

 

Say What?? OMD!! *THUD*

I begged growlmy to let me look at what was happening in Dogsterland, beloved Dogsterland sitting in death-row as it were...and lo and behold I had to look twice, because there I was...grinning at myself in the DOTW window, OMD!!!

So pups at the end of the Dogster era, I am furmouse, so growlmy told me.
I am glad I was finally able to add that to my doggy bucket list, BOL!
Kind of bittersweet, though...sigh...OK, I won't dwell on that...this is a happy entry, right?!

The gift window on my page is overflowing, as is my mailbox! Wow!
Thanks to ALL of you, my pals, and new acquaintances, too, that I am making this way. WOOFS to you all, I love you!
My ♥ to you all, and so fitting in this month of love. Wow that day is coming up quickly, too.

I got a lovely pic from Cooper and his talented furry helpers...THANKS!

And yet another Thank-woofs to Finley & Whitley fur the FUSM-trophy they sent me a while back with that award for being a Badgemaker.
Do I have to make one today fur myself?? Um, I think I will just relax, BOL!

We had about 7-8 inches of snow...again...on Saturday, but yesterday and today we are glad here that the snow machine is turned off. Well, I heard that it will switch back to ON tomorrow evening...sigh...
This morning it was quite cold again -4F, Brrr!

Early just after this news came to me, I saw a large English Setter getting a stroll with his peeps, wow, they must like getting out in the cold, doggy didn't even have a coat on, just his own furs. I see this dog sometimes, but have not had a nose to nose...nor has growlmy been able to speak with his peeps, I guess we keep the wrong schedules! BOL!

Well, now I have to go and take a long nap, because growlmy has to go to her job...

WOOFS!

 

Oh NOOOOOOO ::(((((

My heart is in the throws of anguish. Growlmy needs a bucket to collect tears, and nobody believes this is for real...but I guess it is...sniff...

I do not know how we will manage without being able to see our furends anytime we wanted too, and from all over the world, too.
I feel devastated, and cheated.

Growlmy says she will be spending her time saving our pages and pictures and stuff, so we will not be making pics for anyone anymore.

OMD, this is awful.

You furs who wish to contact me can do so by email,since FB is not part of our lives here.

ingrid@rickmar.net


Maybe if anyone could teach growlmy she could start up a blog.

Well, gotta go and say goodbye/adieu to others...

Huge HUGS to all.
Sniffs...

Um...maybe I should woof, I Can't Believe I Ate ALL The Things!
All those yummy cakes that is! BOL!
Well, I am working on trying to gobble them all up, YUM!
Then a drink of some leftover Hot Cocoa. Phew! Then go and try to catch all those balloons...pop-pop-pop!

Thanks for all the fun that got sent to my page, on the good humors of Dogster having birthday...Number Ten!
Thanks to all my furends fur sending them out!
OMD! I have lost count!
Now I need to go and do some 'plop-plop-fizz'...to rid myself of indigestion from too much cake! BOL!

 

Lap-lap-slurp-lap-lap! Mmmm!

That was me lapping up all those hot cocoa drinks! MMMM!
Thanks to all fur sending them to us!
Thanks Dogster fur making them free to send!

I can walk on my sidewalks again, but there are walls still on both sides, we actually had about 18inches of snow here last week.
Friday it rained...and then it got warm and sunny today, well 40F seems warm after all the frigid weather we had. And? More snow forecast for Tuesday...sigh...
Off to lap up some more yummy drinks...

 

SNOW! Too Much Snow ~ Too Cold ~ OMD!

January 5th 2014 10:11 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 10 people already have ]

Yikes! My peeps spent tons of time outside today, and they moved even more tons of snow. They don't know where to put it anymore, there is so much. We live in the zone where the latest winter mess and deep freezer is happening. Eskimos would laugh at our troubles, but we are groaning. And I am not a husky, a malamute or some other snow loving pup. UGH!
At 6pm growlmy went outside fur the umpteenth time to clear away snow, and she thought the there was already a foot of it...and it was still coming down with a vengeance...at a rate of 1 - 2 inches per hour, OMD, that is too much snow.

Almost all the area churches were cancelled today, as well as schools and other venues are closed tomorrow. Unfurtunately, growlmy has work that will nevfur stop fur the weather conditions, so she will have to navigate the roads tomorrow. At least she works second shift, so maybe a lot of the mess will be cleaned up...except that when the plow does come over our road, OMD...then there will be more hours of shoveling to do. YIKES!

We also have a roof rake, to keep roof snow at a minimum. Growlmy was at it just befur suppertime, and when she touched one part of the snow up there...all of a sudden she heard a rumbly whooshing noise...and down came almost all the snow from that whole section of roof. It was a real life avalanche! Wow! It almost buried her, but she stumbled out of the way just in time when she realized what was happening.

Now finally the snow seems to be tapering off...but...the winds are picking up and the temps are going down, down, down. To below zero. And forecast wind chills of -25 and down to as cold as perhaps -45. Too cold fur me, thats fur sure. The forecasted highs for the 6th & 7th are about zero. Brrr! Brrr!

When the peeps are clearing snow, I run up and down the newly cleared paths, and inspect them...and of course I have to put some of my messages on them, afterall these are my paths, too. Sometimes growlmy makes paths onto the grassy areas, but not today, she just stomped through the snow to our generator to dig out its exhaust pipe, and said that would have to do fur me as my art gallery if I needed to do any of my productions.

Pawppy is taking the day off work tomorrow to help keep things cleared out...and he can work from home on his confuser if need be. He took unfur-bro back to Ann Arbor yesterday befur the snow started. And Boss-boy went back to his own pawlace on the 3rd. So we are all where we belong, and warm and safe, too.
And the peeps made sure there was plenty of noms fur themselves and us furs here, so we are all set!

And remember:
Don't try to change things on your pages in the 'fun stuff' sections (the biofields), because the flea that is pestering them will eat up all your work and you will go right back to a blank Dogster page. UGH! Fleas, Grrr!

Woofs!

 

A Wonderfur Christmas Present!

December 26th 2013 12:01 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

Growlmy was sitting at her desk...when suddenly all was too quiet. Deadly silence. Deafening silence. That generator makes noise like a power-lawnmower, LOUD!
Hey!
It was the generator...it stopped chugging! Growlmy about had a heart attack, because she thought the machine had conked out.
Then she realized that the confuser was on, the light was on, and the power was ON!!!
Hooray! Merry Christmas!
Except then she had to go and leave fur her work, My furmily & I had to share her with the peeps at the nursing home. Oh well, I guess its OK, cause the power is on, the Christmas trees are LIT, the den is cozy and all the menfolk are here.

I got some stuffies for doggymas...but they are just lying about untouched. I had a ton of more fun shredding up all the wrapping paper, I even tried to snag some presents befur the intended receiver got to open it...don't touch that yet, they said...but they didn't know I was trying to help them open it, or maybe drag it to them...


Thanks to all of you who sent me all the pretty lit up trees! Just the thing to brighten up what was starting out to be another day in the dark.
Thanks to HQ, too fur letting us gift our pup-pals with these beautiful trees!

Woofs!

 

Icicle City!

Slip & Slide...
Ice all around.
It fell from the sky,
Now it covers the ground.
Thick and clear,
Cold and bright...
While quite dangerous,
Its a beautifur sight!
Tree limbs in the yard.
Too heavy a burden of ice.
Sidewalks are glazed.
This ice isn't at all nice.
Freezing rain,
Some call it sleet,
It surrounds all it touches,
Makes walking quite the feat!
If from behind the clouds,
The sun would peek,
It would make all sparkle.
The icy cover bleak,
Would become a splendor - cold;
But wondrous to behold!


Last night we had an ice storm here, and now everything is covered in slippery, heavy glaze. Power is out in many areas, snow is headed our way and travel is hazardous.
We here also lost our power, and earlier this morning, all the neighbors had an exodus from their dwelling, presumably to places with power.
We do have power, as we have a generator, but of course we are limited in all the regular things of life! At least we have heat and light. Growlmy is using a wi-fi phone connection to send out this entry, as our internet is also out.
The funny thing is, boss-boy came over here befur the storm started and now he is 'stuck' here, BOL! His apartment still has power, BOL! Go figure!

So my playtime with you is not going to include any picture making...
I sure hope all my pals in the path of this messy and dangerous storm are safe and warm.

Now I need to go and help the peeps clean up some fallen limbs in my yard. No power lines down here, thankfully, just the effects of no power...sigh...

Have a nice day and soon enough it will be Christmas!

Growlmy saw the Ho-Ho Man at her work the other day, BOL! He really was there! She may see him again, as she has to be at her work on Christmas Day...her job nevfur stops fur spawsial days...so I will be sharing her with her residents, she says its fur a good cause!

Woofs!
