There is a big smoochie on my page...someone thinks I am their fave JRT Pup-Boy...does that mean they are a JRT Gal? Or some other Gal-Pup?
I am feeling like I want to smooch them back, but I don't know who to give my patented MJF Lick/Kiss to...
Those are huge red lips...tee-hee...I have pink jowls, BOL!
This pup had better watch out, if she stays as a Nonny Mouse, my kitty brofurs could well try to pounce on her...and don't furget that I, being a terrieristic pup, also go fur the rodentia that may cross my path...OK, OK, I won't snatch you in my jaws...but I sure am curious who my secretive A. N. Mouse might be!
Well, I do thank you fur these 'Big Red Lips'!! BOL!

Growlmy felt so horrible today she went to her MD...who says she just has a rip-roaring viral infection that is starting to show some bacterial overlay...whatevfur.
So she got a bunch of meds and a letter to take some sick time off work...she doesn't need to share that around!
Anyways, all of our snow and ice from the weekend is GONE, and we are left with a huge muddy mess...not to mention some big doody piles, growlmy hasn't been doing her duty in the doody dept...
Today we got up to 58 degrees, and we had huge thunderstorms and torrential downpours, too. When growlmy came back from the MD & drugstore, she sure looked like a drowned rat, BOL! Just what a terrier loves!
After that wet non-adventure she just laid low on the recliner all day, and we kept her company.

No, not me, Phew! I am fine.
Growlmy is doing that...along with loads of barking, peep style.
She is hot, too...not the cool kind of hot, the red cheeked burning up kind...
So, now she too has entered the realms of the afflicted, BOL! Gotta see the funny side of things.
She got this crud from her residents where she works, sheesh!
Well, she is off for two more days, so maybe by then she will be feeling better, I hope so, she didn't even play with me nor my kitty brofurs today...
So if you do not get any pics, please furgive us...and...they can't be posted anyways, there are some nasty infestations of fleas here...but Dogster HQ say they are trying to find the right kind of medicine to cure the troubles...hopefurly sooner than later!
Congrats, too, to my good pal Pepper, whom most of you know...she is Dog of the Week! Yippee!

Growlmy saw a cute little Fox Terrier mix at the local shelter, her name was Cricket. She was 5 years old.
So CUTE! She looked a lot like me, except her fur was shaggier and her ears stood up...ok then she didn't look like me, BOL!
Growlmy wanted to let her be my sisfur(!), but they were not letting her go to any new den that had kitties. Shucks! I would have liked to have her here...well maybe one day there might be a pup here, well, maybe a bit older than a baby-pup, but a playmate.
So I will just have to play through the fence games with Champ...and romp in the snow...UGH, I hate snow! Growlmy had to shovel out twice today, to keep up with it...but it is easier work now that we have the concrete, rather than the old gravel and mud ruts.
She was glad to be off today, the roads are awful and there have been lots of 'incidents'. The main highway was even closed completely for a while. Tomorrow...well not sure if growlmy will get the groceries or wait another day...at least the cupboards are not bare. The doggy treats and food bags are full.
Yesterday, growlmy was at work...carrying water cups, with lids... She was taking them to the residents' bathroom to dump them out, only they were almost dumped on the carpet, BOL! Growlmy caught her toe in a wire under a residents' bed, attached to a fall alarm. So she careened across the floor, and stumbled to the bathroom door...where she couldn't keep her balance any longer, and DOWN she went. Kaboom! Miraculously the lids stayed on the cups, and growlmy's knees were not hurt...just her pride was sorely wounded. Both residents had a good giggle at growlmy's expense, and so did the nurse out in the hall who witnessed this incident...growlmy got up and finished her work with a furry red face... the funny thing was the fall alarm did not register the fact that someone had fallen...because growlmy only tripped over the wire, not the mat...BOL!
Its a good thing there was no one there with a camera...

Growlmy was fixing din-din fur herself and pawppy...as usual I got me some tidbits of this and that, mostly salad items...and no I am not a bunny...BOL!
Well I overheard the table-talk and it was to the effect that the did-din was not as yummy as expected..., usually leftovers go into containers to supply entrees for pawppy's lunch, or another did-din if there is enough. Well, growlmy took the leftovers today, and when she lifted the casserole lid, I thought I was going to be a lucky recipient of yummy meat & sauce...but... take note pup pals, she took it into the throne room and fed the throne...and then I heard a great swish-swirl and those leftovers were no more...OMD! Nothing fur me:(
I could have had a feast, but no...all I got was some more cucumber slices & lettuce ribs. I am NOT on a diet, growlmy.
The new neighbors pup is now almost 4 months old, and his name is Champ.
He is a mix of boxer, husky and some type of terrier.
He has a small fenced area behind his house, with a dogloo house, but he is only out there if his peeps are not with him..howevfur growlmy pointed out, that he could still try to dig his way out...and they said he would be inside in a crate until he is housebroken. He gets proper doggy food, too, appawrently his furbears got mostly scraps, sheesh:(
He likes to chew on fingers...bad...and jump up...more bad...so growlmy explained some of the more basic ways to curb this kind of behavior...and told her to go and look online for dog sites with good info, such as here in Dogsterland.
She knew nothing about teething and how long that goes on for, and that that is the main reason why he wants to chew...sigh...maybe they should have done research befur getting another pup.
She could also have asked those questions when he gets vet care...yes he does...and the vet could have even asked them what their concerns were.
He is scheduled to be neutered next week...that is a good thing!
Well, anyways, growlmy came in the house, I had a good sniff of Champ on her...but she didn't offer to let him come and play with me, maybe she thinks he is too baby and rambunctious fur me, but I think we could have had a good romp in my yard. Maybe when he has completed all of his doggy shots.
He was a rescue pup, so that is a good thing, to give a pup a nice home...well I think it will be that when they all learn the ropes about doggy care!

Hello, pups and peeps alike!
Sunday was the last offurcial day of Christmas, at least if you are old fashioned and follow the tradition of the Twelve Days of Christmas...it is also known as Epic Fanny. Who is this, you ask...well, I even had to ask, BOL!
Epic is quite old, and Fanny is the end...ie the fanny part of a peep...tee-hee...What, growlmy? Oh...I guess in my older years I need to clean out my ears and realign the filing cabinets in my head.
Growlmy told me it was Epiphany, the day of the three kings coming to bear their gifts...gold, frankincense and myrrh. We really are not sure that they were royalty, let alone kings, but that is what the tradition says...the Bible calls them Wise Men...kings need to be wise, and those gifts they brought to give were costly and mostly only kings were rich.
So now you know, the story according to MJF...
Here is something else to consider, and I know that not of few of our peeps, (and some pups, too, I think...), can truly feel for these words below:
The Week After Christmas
Twas the week after Christmas and all through the house
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste.
All the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).
I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared;
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared,
The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."
So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruitcake, every cracker and chip...
Every last bit of food that I like must be banished
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.
I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.
I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.
I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore --
But isn't that what January is for?
Unable to giggle, no longer a riot.
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!
I furst thought that was what the Epic Fanny story was referring to...
And here is something I didn't find too funny...I have now been here in Dogsterland 37 months, and growlmy didn't even know about it, till today...um...she furgot all about it, BOL!
GRRR! I seem to have to take a lot of second place seats here...well anyways, there are now three candles on that little Dogster cake on my page.
I love Dogster, and I LOVE all my pup pals, too!

Yup, I am happy and barking out loud...most of the time!
The furs in this den got at least 27 cards, compared to the 24 that the peeps got....so we WON!
There was even a bacon scented 'air-freshener' from the Papillon Pack! Yum! Bacon!
I have had a lot of fun and amusement ripping my new unstuffie apart...yup, even those can be destroyed! It was a squirrel with a bushy tail, so I have wreaked my vengeance upon that variety of rodent pest...GRRR!
Growlmy keeps finding the shreds of its tail all over the carpet, or dangling from my jaws.
Best of all, over the past couple of weeks, even on the days when growlmy had to go to her work, I was not alone, because Boss-boy and unfur-bro were both here, and sometimes pawppy was too. I hear that tomorrow they will be going back to their school...sigh...all good things have to come to an end...
And on that note, I wish evfurryone a furry good and Happy New Year, full of woofingly great fun, barkingly wonderfur health and of course as always, 'wots of wuf'!
Woofs and more woofs!

Be joyful! I helped growlmy be just that, despite the sad news from yesterday.
Today I woofed loudly and ran outside to skid on the icy layer of snow...hey, we weren't supposed to have that till tomorrow, sheesh, I don't care for that cold stuff.
Anyways I greeted the new pup next door, as he was doing *privacy junk* and did my own...then back into the warn den.
After my breakfast, growlmy did a quick look on Dogster before the rest of my peeps got up...yes, at this den we sleep in, BOL! Presents can wait, now that my unfurbros are grown up.
Anyways, she saw the little e-mail notice...Mr Jack Freckles is a Daily Dairy Pick! OMD! That is like getting a present from Dogster! Thanks, HQ!
And you my pup furends have been gifting me all day long! Thanks evfur so much! Woofs and Happy Christmas to you all!
I also got a couple of packages to open...a bully stick and a untuffed squirrel-dude!
There are 2 squeakers for me to figure out how to get out of that dude...BOL!
Growlmy saw I was eyeballing the toys that my kitty brofurs had...hmmm, I think I like their catnip!
But the most fun I have had in ages and ages, was ripping all the wrapping paper to shreds! I furgot I am supposed to be rather dognified at my ripe years of 10 1/2...BOL! Growlmy said I was helping her with getting the mess edited befur bagging it fur disposal!
I got some Christmas dinner tidbits...and then I gnawed my bully stick....under the table while my peeps were eating dinner, YUMMY!
I also got some things I wasn't too thrilled with...a new Christmas collar with bells on it, BOL, growlmy relented and took it off after I tried scratching it off...Also I got some bling! Um...Bling?? Fur a manly pup?? Well, I have been wearing it all day, it has red, green and clear stones on it, just right fur today...then I shall growl fur my regular one, right, growlmy??
So joy seems to reign here, once again!
The true JOY of this season, for which I and my furmily give thanks, CHRISTmas!
Have a Blessed Christmas evfurryone!

Growlmy should be feeling efvur so happy, since its Christmas Eve, she is off until Dec 27th...Our house is full of decorations, loads of cards from peeps and furs...thanks so much to all my furry pals who sent cards, I loved them!...but growlmy is feeling oh so sad, and perhaps its mixed with some anger and guilt, too...
No, not to worry I am just fine, full of vim and vigor and barks galore, BOL!
The problem is...
There is a new puppy next door.
And Bandit is no more.
And worse yet, Peanut Buster is gone,too.
Shortly after that night at the end of Novenmber, we didn't see them anymore. Well, today growlmy talked with Bandit's peeps, and he was hit by a car and injured beyond help...and Peanut was hit at the same time, and he was killed instantly.
Oh, NO. Tell us it isn't true:(
Growlmy has been so upset.
She feels bad that she didn't just take that Peanut into our den outright... he would have been safe. Well, now he won't be sending his cheerful barks to anyone...RIP, Peanut. You were a cute pup, and I would have enjoyed having you fur a brofur.
Bandit's peeps must have learned things, too, because now there is a fence with a gate behind their den...hope that the new dude doesn't learn how to get out. He looks like a 'Mutski' as we call them, (BOL), but they said he doesn't have a name yet...
Sorry to spoil all of the fun and joy of your Christmas dogabrations, but growlmy had to vent her feelings...we know you will understand.
Now I have to go and lick the puddles on growlmy's cheeks...
On a brighter note fur some, we are going to have a White Christmas afterall! Except that I don't care fur it, BOL! I like me my green grass!
