The other day, I met Schatzi, my LWD stroll pal.
Schatzi is a German term for dearie or something like that....well her mom was not to happy with her little dearie, BOL! She was not white, at least not around her neck and shoulders. She was furry dark brown...and stinky to boot, BOL!
Little Miss Schatzi the not so white, LWD had found herself some delish doo-doo to roll in...OMD
Of course her mom was dressed in nice clean clothes, because she was going out with her friend as soon as her stroll was over...um...well maybe not, because she was going to have to take care of her LWD to get her all clean again...growlmy rightly prophesied a bath in Schatzi's future...BOL!
Growlmy also made sure to ask where that doo-doo was so that I would be led past it on the other side of the street...growlmy is such a pawrty pooper, sometimes!
In other woofs, soon it will be that yearly event of Pirate Day...YARGHHHH!!

You read that correctly, pups!
I thought I was going fur a stroll this morning,but instead growlmy heaved me into the van...in all of my years I have only evfur gotten in there on my own pogo stick jumping legs about 2 or 3 times, BOL! I who can jump like a circus clown with springs will not get into that van...oh well, that is digressing...
So I went fur a road trip of about 20 minutes, over some bumpy roads that were termed as 'rough road' by the signage...even though it was only a ride of about 7 or 8 miles...sigh...but I saw squirrels and all kinds of birds along the way,and even a few dogs...but nothing too exciting like venison beasts, not even any cows or horses, though we did pass by horse farms, I think they were having breakfast in their barns.
Then I was allowed out, and I could tell that there had been a lot of pups walking over that grass and pavement...yup...I was at the dogtor, aka vet.
So furst growlmy let me do my communications on some trees and posts..and then she was evfur so happy that I made a huge doo-doo fur her little baggie, BOL! Why do those dogtors always want to have that stuff, growlmy mostly nevfur gives her baggies to anyone! BOL! She hides them in a big green bin! This one I just made must have been extra spawsial...
I got poked and pinched and prodded...and she even opened my mouth...OMD! What big teeth you have she said, well what did she expect, little mousie teeth, BOL!
She said all was fine, and said my teeth looked really great, for my age...she asked growlmy if my teeth were getting brushed...yes-siree!
She complemented growlmy on her efforts.
That was the I am good part...
But when she was checking out my unmentionables, I grumped and snarked! Hey! nobody is allowed to do that, so I had to remind her...and I said things under my breath when I got those jabs that had been reserved for myself...the nerve!
And then she gave me a treat, well, OK, I furgave her! BOL!
Now I am good to go till the next scheduled visit.
Growlmy was a bit annoyed because I was getting my heartworm medication from there, they gave growlmy a good deal, because they do 'price matching', but they said they no longer are carrying the product I was using, they changed to another...of course more expensive one from a different manufacturer...sigh...so now growlmy has to take a script and send it through to a mail order pharmacy....you would think that if a product is good, why change? Why not carry both? Whatevfur...

A clear path to my doggy bed in the back porch, and another one inside the big den...what a lot of boxes got lugged and jostled today!
The peeps were moving all the unfurbro's 'junk' into the van and car to take to his new apartment, tomorrow.
So now the den looks a lot less like the local storage unit, BOL! And growlmy says she can move about easier, and clean better, too.
So tomorrow I will be on guard duty and not romping around much here in Dogsterland...so I hope that I do not miss too much...sigh...
Woof at you later!!

Growlmy had to get up to...well, you know, BOL...and so she checked the confuser since she knew that the new day would be up in Dogsterland...and wow, I am a DDP again! Haven't written anything since the last time either, BOL!!
Well yesterday I barked my head right off at a hot air balloon that had the nerve to land in the field across the street. OMD! I must have really scared it, because it shriveled up, and the unfurs who were with it, stuck it inside a basket and drove away! BOL!!
Then I got to do 11 1/2 hours of guard duty, since the peeps all went away fur the day. They went to see a baseball game at Commerica Park, the stadium of the Detroit Tigers...and they won! ROAR!!
It was a good way for the peeps to dogabrate the 20th birthday of unfurbro!
Sorry if I missed anything good here...hope you all are well and had great days with your peeps!
Redford and his furmily sent me this nice pic/memento, I will properly post it when growlmy comes home from work...much later, BOL! (...sigh...)
THANKS FOR THIS PIC, REDFORD!
Thanks Redford and your gang of furs!

Well, Growlmy was not happy this morning...she turned on this old confuser, and went to the browser, but access was denied...she couldn't get on the interwebs...GRRR!
But unfurbro said he could, and pawppy said so too...so what was up with that!
Pawppy had installed some 'updates' and that pups, was the trouble, it had to be reset, so after some fiddling, (pawppy had his tech hat on), it worked!
And lo and behold, there was I, in the DDP line up! Whoopee!
"Thanks fur this pawsome beach pic fur my DDP, Cooper and gang!"

Woofs and thanks to you all, pups! I have nevfur been to a real beach, BOL!
It is a delightfur day here, coolish, sunny and the grass is once again green and soft...and way too tall, BOL! Unfurbro will be going to give it a mow down furry soon, and even sooner growlmy will be off to her work...and I sure hope that pawppy gets back from his errands soon, so I can beg some belly rubs from him, and maybe a treat or two!
I have discovered that not only do the neighbors have their goat, a hound type dog of their own and CJ the old guest/lodger pup, they have a CAT! OMD! I went nutzo when I saw it it on the steps, but growlmy said I better get used to seeing it...she thinks he is beautifur, a grey and white dude, and he didn't seem too scared of me, he just kept staying on their steps trying to stare me down...or maybe he was sizing me up, BOL!
Well, I do have to let growlmy leave here cause she has to go and take care of her residents at the nursing home...maybe she will see the service pups that come through there now and then, one is a handsome blue merle aussie pup.
I hope you all have a nice weekend and I will woof at you later!

I have just met Zeus!
Another JRT, and a Canadian one at that!
He is new to Dogster, and I am sure he would love to meet new pup-pals!
If you are feeling all hot from your local heat waves, then his main pic will help cool you off, BOL!
Here is a link to his page:
Woofs to all!

This new item was on our local new today. Heartwarming to say the least...and wonderfur to read a good doggy story, instead of some of the bad dog did this or that...
Briarfield Farm Sanctuary Saving Dogs Across Michigan
MATTAWAN, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Over the last few months, we've covered many stories of dogs being rescued from horrible conditions.
Some of them are placed in new homes, but many of the older dogs and the ones who have medical conditions face a life of uncertainty.
That's where a West Michigan sanctuary comes in.
Briar-Field Farms is not your typical shelter.
While they hope to adopt out all their dogs, they know that many of them will never leave the sanctuary--and that's just fine with them.
The fields there used to house horses, but now dogs rescued from unimaginable conditions run free between the white fenceposts.
Horse stables have been transformed into kennels, which now house about 30 dogs.
Many that wouldn't be alive if it weren't for John Coghlin and his team.
"We jokingly refer to this as a last chance ranch, and I guess I have to say we take the dogs that are not going to make it out of animal services or wherever they might be," Coghlin said.
The farm has only been operating as a dog rescue for a year and a half, and is already full.
The dogs come from all over the state--Coghlin works with animal services in many counties and takes in dogs that are too old or sick--like a trio called the welcoming committee.
"We call them our three old men," Coghlin said. "They live in our office all day long; they're all over the age of 8.
"Scotty is 8, Winston and Rosco are about 10, they're just our greeters," he continued.
They give older dogs a nice place to spend the rest of their days, and if they can, the sanctuary helps them find forever families.
It's work that is rewarding for Coghlin, his six employees and the volunteers that help walk and feed the dogs.
The farm, in Mattawan, is a non-profit, and relies on donations of supplies and medical care.
If you're interested in adopting one of the dogs, you can find a link to their website by clicking here:Briarfield Farm Sanctuary
I hope you check this link, it truly shows the love that is going on there.
Have a great day!

Mr Goat...known as Prince has helped me get a DDP...so should I still call him silly, crazy or stupid??
He still gets out, and does silly things...
Well, maybe the Diary Gal likes goats?!

You're welcome, dude,
you're a great pal to
Today growlmy is off, even though she got a phone call a short while ago to beg her to come in n her day off, she declined because her & Pawppy are going to be 'going out' fur the day, something they don't do furry often...gotta do it while the chance is there, BOL!
It isn't hot, which is a welcome change, and we have had a lot of rain...over 3 inches here...and some areas got way more than that...rather too late fur farmers but needed nevfurtheless to help raise the water levels in lakes, rivers and so on...like our water table fur the well...so I can have nice cool fresh water to drink...
I shall try to convince growlmy to get back on here later today...furmouse pups got to keep up with the pupperazzi, BOL!

Well, today was goat's turn...to be on the lam...
Prince(!) was in his front yard munching the lawn when growlmy & I set out fur our stroll.( Hooray, Its cool in the mornings again!)
Well, he saw us, and tried to come after us, so growlmy rediredcted him back to his yard and we proceeded...or so we thought!
After we walked a bit further we heard a pick-up truck come down the street, but it slowed way down...so growlmy looked behind us and there was that silly goat again, in the middle of the road!
Well, back we went, with Prince...
After he was safe, we tried to go off on the stroll route once again.
Nope, not today!
Suddenly we heard the clippity-clop of hooves on the road...and sure enough, that billygoat was following us, he was running down the street in the middle of the road, as fast as his goat legs would carry him...if it wasn't so annoying and dangerous, it would have been funny!
So this time, growlmy put the extra leash she always has in her pocket...(Like a boy scout, always prepared!)...and looped it around Princes not skinny neck and tried to get him to walk back with us...nope, he wasn't having it at all! BOL! So with some pushing and shoving eventually he went, but then he ran! And you guessed it, growlmy went down , kaboom! On her left knee, to even up the score from the balloon festival tumble...well, at the edge of Prince's yard, one of the older boys drove up, and he took over and penned Prince up...after apologizing...of course he didn't know that growlmy had taken a crash...
Growlmy thinks that her neighbors' critters are going to be her undoing pone of these days! I think that they need to learn to walk so they can come with us...that would make our strolls more fun, don't you think?? BOL!
And no, I did not get to complete my stroll as planned...
Note from Growlmy...I didn't get hurt, more than my pride...but one of these days...good grief!
