I want to wish all pet mommies and human mommies, too, a very Happy Mother's Day!
And woofs to all aunties and grandmas, too. Oh and all the greats and grands, too. All mommies and growlmies are so very important in the lives of those they love, pets and humans!
Barks, Howls and Woofs! and Licks, too!!


So Good To Be Back Home!

Well, I am home again! Woofs to everfur! The first thing i did was to greet my kitty brofurs, the a big bunch of licks to my pawppy! And a tail flick to my unfurbro...who hardly pays me any attention...BOO! He always has said he didn't want a dog, and even after all these years, he still doesn't do anything with or for me... But, once he let me 'escape' before we had our fence, he did help growlmy get me back...and a couple of times in my 8 years he has taken me for a when growlmy was getting chemo, or was out of town...I guess you could say, we tolerate each other...but I don't think I will miss him like my boss-boy when he goes off to college.
Speaking of boss-boy, he was at a conference, just left almost as soon as he came back from school...he is coming home this evening! I shall have to practice my licking technique on his face! Woofs!
I was surprised that I had gotten a prize in the GOFA 2010 contest, but there it was waiting for us when we got back...some nice things, which are now up on my page.
Thank you, Monty, for doing the nice work!
Well I have a lot to woof, howl and bark about, so I will post the bits and pieces a little at a time.
Great to be back amongst my pup-pals! Woofs!


Ungainly Gobbler, and Good Bye, Too

May 2nd 2010 8:08 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

Well, my pawty pics finally are posted...a bit late, but better late than never!
As you can see there were a few guests...Monkey,Blue, Bignose, Angus, Crockie and Shy Teddy!
We had a cookout with burger, hotdog and drumstick! And to finish off, there was a birthday cake. But the cake baker forgot that I needed 8 candles, so I had to make do with 3...BOL!
So as I warned you all before, you are not supposed to giggle! Growlmy is great at improvising and making do! BOL!! I wonder why she didn't invite my kitty brofurs?!

This morning, early in the drizzly rain, there was a solitary wild turkey. In the neighbour's yard! Strutting along, in its rather ungainly manner, looking for a breakfast, I guess.
I stuck my head out the doggy door to see what growlmy had called pawppy about, and decided to make it go away! No trespassers allowed - even at the neighbours! BOL!!
So I took off as a white flash, stopped up short by our fence! OMD! Those gobblers are so clumsy, if the fence wasn't there I could have caught it! Well, he gobbled and cackled and went into the that was that. Pawppy never even had a chance to see it! Hah-hah! BOL!

Growlmy has arranged for her and I to go on a road trip. 325 miles one way, and a chat with the border dude, too.
So I will get to give my belated birthday greetings to my dog cousin, Murphy. He had his #8 On April 27th. He is ust a few days older than me! We could almost be twins! Hah! But we are a good duo of terrorists! BOL!!
And after growlmy gives my auntie a hug, I will be able to give her lots of my sloppy kissies and licks! She is doing well since she got that pacemaker. Does that make her bionic?! BOL!
I shall have to remember to bark and woof at Zaidie when we pass by his neighbourhood.

But alas, my auntie does not have internet access, so I will make this my last entry until I get back...Sob! Howl!

But I am sure there will be overloads of stuff to bark and howl about after we get back! (Next weekend or a bit longer...)
Goodbye for now! Over and Out!


Goosey, McGander and Blue

I have seen great things to celebrate May Day!

I saw another bunny,...but if growlmy hadn't seen it 1st, oops! I might have missed the opportunity...Maybe I should pay more attention...

And of course I was being a good cow again this morning. The grass is tall and temptingly juicy! I love to graze on it!

Curly Tail and Bouncy Boxy were romping about in their yard when we passed by them this morning...but they stopped just long enough to greet me with a few woofs, then resumed their goofy romp! That must be more interesting than just old me walking by...BOL!

And Bayla was out, too. She said a polite hello and went back to her boss lady. Growlmy says she should go and talk to Bayla's growlmy to find out what kind of training she had to make her so obedient, or if that is just her nature!

I have seen another great thing to celebrate May Day!
A goose family!
Lucy Goosey and Grander McGander with 2 little yellow fluff balls! They were following Lucy and encouraged from behind by McGander. A priceless vision! Now I know why growlmy always keeps her eyes alert to the surroundings. There really is so much to capture imaginations and attention. It made our day so spawsial!

Hope your May Day was memorable, too!

P.S. (Growlmy looked up the little blue butterfly we saw the other day. It is called a 'Blue' and there are various types of them. This one was a Spring Azure . A very pretty name for a beautiful little bit of nature!)

Today was the first day of the rest of my life! The beginning of my 9th year! It was a great day!
So many furends and pup-pals sent messages and gifts, that I was overwhelmed! I couldn't begin to thank you all as individuals, so I will give you all a collective big smoochie, wet, licky thank you!
"I Am Celebrating My Eighth Birthday On April 30, 2010! Hip-Hip-Hooray!"

My 'guest' is actually my boss-boy's. He got it fur his own birthday a few years now he helps me celebrate mine...because he looks so much like my twin!
He can even wag his tail, bark and spin in circles, because he gets so happy to be with us!
I think he is part of a series that is called 'The Dog" My pawppy has a Scottie key chain from the same company...big head, tiny body! Because terriers have big smart brains...BOL!

OOOHH Mr.Jack.. Your b-day pics are pawsome..we and our mom think you are such a handsome birthday boy.. Is your terrier cousin still destroying things?I see that you sir are indeed a terror as evidenced by the total annihilation of your cake..BOL !!

Growlmy gave me some extra yummy treats, which was great, because she closely monitors my intake...But on spawsial days its OK! Yum! I love treats and most anything edible! But she wants me to stay at my 25lbs...I've been at that weight for several years, now! 25lbs of muscle and lead...esp when I bump into you at full throttle!
When I was strolling along my country lanes today, I saw a little blue butterfly! Don't know what kind that was, but it sure was pretty! A gift from the natural realm...
I got a woofy greeting from Bayla, and another from Muffin. And LWD was in her den but she woofed at me through the window!
I saw the bunny, too. But I was nice and only stalked it, I didn't chase it!
It was warm and sunny which made for good napping conditions!
There were lots of things to run outside for and bark at ...growlmy says I am nuts!(because she doesn't see or hear what I do...)
When I get some time from all this excitement, I shall beg growlmy to play dogretary and post some pics of my cake and some of my pals and presents. Promise you won't giggle?
Well we all here need to shut our eyes so we can enjoy the next day of the rest of our lives...
I helped growlmy fabarkate a little poetic rebark of what today meant fur me.

Today I have marked,
Eight orbits 'round the sun.
Though I have gotten older,
Everything is still fun!

Senior, now I've been made,
with eight years on board.
My muzzle has grayed,
But still I am adored!

I might be old,
as some will remark,
But I still am quite bold,
I run, I play, and OMD, do I bark!

My furmily is great,
and love me so much.
I eagerly await,
Their gentle touch!

Eight years celebrated,
by a party today!
I was condogulated!

I got presents and treats,
and attention galore!
Yummies and meats,
and so much more!

There were pals,
and a cake-
with candles;
someone did bake!

Dogster sent me greetings,
And with stroll dogs,
I had some meetings.
And woofed in some blogs!

Now I am tired,
Want to sleep in my nest.
Today was a great day;
One of the BEST!


Happy Day, Happy Walk, Scoop the Poop!

April 29th 2010 8:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Today my walk was a lot happier! Dead squirrel dude was gone! The poor dead kitty was gone, too. I want to think that someone missed him and then sadly found him and helped him to a proper burial site.
Growlmy took her camera on my stroll, but of course, today there was nothing near the creek, except a big bunny in the tall no heron to show off!
Growlmy was gone in her moving van/minivan today. She threw a bunch of empty boxes in the back, along with a big suitcase. When she got back a long time later...OMD! There was my boss-boy!! He is done with school until September. So He will be with me all summer! And for my Birthday/Woofday/Barkday tomorrow! Yippee!! So I got all wiggly and waggly and of course, licky! Oh how I love to lick!!
I hope I get a pupcake to lick, tomorrow...

Growlmy was looking around the internet this morning, before she went away, and read that it has been: 'National Scoop the Poop Week' this week, April 24 - 30.
AHEM! What a thing to celebrate on the week of my spawsial day! ICK! Oh, well, at least I know that my growlmy always picks up after me...not so much with a scoop, but with a bag that she always has with her when we stroll. Scoops are too big and bulky to take along...and yes, she does use a fresh bag each time...She has to remember to take the bags out of her pocket - the empty ones that looks kind of silly, when she reaches in there and finds a bag for you know what instead of he keys or wallet! BOL!!
A while back, she was visiting my auntie, and had come back inside after my stroll. My auntie asked, 'What stinks in here?' Oops! Growlmy had forgotten to take the not so empty bag out to the trash!! OMD! Did she ever have a red face and the biggest hoots of giggling I have ever heard from those 2 ladies! BOL!!

Its a Plus contest to go orange for the ASPCA. Look in the forums. Or search GOFA 2010, and you should find some info. You'd look good in orange!

Well, I need to go to my nestie now, for I shall be having a busy day tomorrow! BOL!


A Sad Walk

April 28th 2010 8:37 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ]

My daily stroll started out as normal. Beautiful, fresh and cool, as you expect on a spring morning.
I got to greet Bailey, he had escaped from his house...but after we said hello, he went back to his growlmy. OMD! If that had been me, I would have been in vamoose mode!
Later I walked a bit with the LWD and her growlmy.
There was a big heron standing at the water's edge in the misty sunbeams. A duck was swimming near would have made a great picture, but growlmy doesn't often take her camera on our strolls...too bad!
Then I saw another dead squirrel dude. A big fat black one. I had a hard time listening to growlmy telling me to 'Leave it!' I just wanted to have a good whiff of it...and maybe a tiny taste? Well, that's one less for us canines to chase after.
Then we started to cross the highway.I heard Growlmy draw in her breath and say 'Oh no!' OMD! There was a big grey animal lying on the center lines of the highway.
At first growlmy thought it was a racoon, but when we came a bit closer, it was a large tom-cat. Sad! It looked like it had been a handsome fellow, with emerald green eyes and steel grey fur. No collar. Growlmy has never seen this kitty in anyone's window or yard, so she couldn't go and notify anyone. This made us very upset. A poor kitty's life wasted, and a loved kitty at that, because it did look well fed...and probably someone wondering where their kitty was and why he didn't come home.
A sad ending to an otherwise great morning stroll. }:o>(


Blue Bird of Happiness!

April 26th 2010 8:22 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

The creek was indeed very high today. In one low area it was almost over the banks!
I could hear it rushing over the rocks from quite a distance.
The crab apple trees are all very thick with pink blooms.
Our dogwood tree is also in bloom. I wonder why it doesn't bark?! BOL!!
There are lots of empty bird eggs all along where I go for my stroll. Most are blue, so I think those would be robin eggs, or perhaps bluebird eggs.
There were all kinds of birds this morning. Robins, finches, sparrows of not a few varieties, crows, Red winged blackbirds, blue jays, cardinals, ducks, geese, chickadees, woodpeckers - 3 or 4 kinds - titmice, nuthatches, herons, and doves.
When we were almost home growlmy got all excited because she saw a bluebird. They are bright blue on top, and orange and white on their undersides. Years ago she would see lots of them, as they nested in a big oak near the house, but not anymore.
So this was great, for her to spy it. There is a song or poem about these birds called 'The Blue Bird of Happiness'. Is anyone familiar with that?
She saw some orioles over the weekend, too.
Those orange and black birds along with the bluebirds would be good avian reps, for the GOFA , that is this month!
A lot of these birds are the sure signs of spring, with its beauty and new life. Esp after yesterday's rain, everything is growing and green with many splashes of colour, from tree blossoms, and bulbs showing off their flowers.
Well, got to go now!


Pawty!...Dogster Style!

April 25th 2010 7:19 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Well, today was very wet and rainy and stormy. Growlmy said there was a 'lake' over one of the roads they were on, coming home from church. Some of the swampy areas around here look like ponds!
It will be interesting to see how high the creek is, when I go for my walk tomorrow morning.

When my furmily came home from church, tonight, I got to go to an early bark/woofday pawty!
It was at the 'Birthday and Gotcha Club'. I could only be there for the last few minutes...but there was this cake they made, just for me!! How pawsome is that?! Yum!
Thank you B and G club!
It was lipsmacking good. After I ate it up...I had to leave because the pawty was over...

Growlmy wishes that these spawsial events were not held on Sundays, because they spend several hours going to and from, and being at if we want to pawticpate, it can only be for a short while!

Well, its only a few more days till my offurcial barkday, now...I can hardly wait!
But I guess I shall have to!

OMD! Growlmy called me 'Butt-Ugly'! Hey I'm not ugly! And what's with my butt, anyways? You are supposed to look at my cute and handsome face ...only other beasties are allowed,(sometimes), to check out my butt...BOL!
But...pun not intended...growlmy was obsessed with MY butt! She said I had a poopy-pendant! Hey I thought pendants were on necklaces that went around necks...for girl pups...(yeah, sometimes my growlmy puts them on me for those dumb photo sessions.)...
Well I was doing my mind my own business stuff, and just had to take a bit longer than growlmy who always pays too much attention to my business anyway, had to take a look...ahem!
(She always carries a baggie or 2 with her. She must need to save my productions for something!? BOL!)
She said: 'Freckles, you have a poopy pendant!' Why would that be there, and what does that mean, anyways? Turns out that lately I have been snacking on some tender shoots of long one of them didn't get chewed up properly and -ahem- exited at the back end in full length! with some bits and pieces hanging with a pendant, swinging on a string...OMD! A good scoot will get rid of that, Growlmy! And that was the end of that!! BOL!!
Moral of the story?

Keep the grass mowed!
