Bunnies, Squirrel Dudes and Duck Costume Time

April 23rd 2013 7:56 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 8 people already have ]

Growlmy is cuckoo!
She keeps bringing home critters...and I have to of course sniff them to give my appawroval.
The other day she brought home two bunnies. These guys are not scared of me at all, and do not move a hare when I get close.
Today she brought home two squirrel dudes. Sheesh, growlmy! Don't you know it is my duty to eradicate pests and varmints like these rodents?
These guys just stare at me and if they could flick their bushy tails at me...well they would!
Appawrently she is doing somethings in the yard and wanted these critters to help decorate. We already had some frogs, birds and even a kitty. OMD! My yard is being invaded!
And tonight she went out with her tools and red ducks have red boots? She was going to kick some weeds she said, but she needed these as part of her duck costume, because it started to pour. Did she go inside? Nope!
She kept on weeding and cutting branches...even though her duck costume was dripping...quack-quack!
And silly me...I who hate getting wet, just stuck with her to snoopervise the action and make sure no drowning when growlmy finally gave up and went inside, I was more wet than she was, BOL! A stinky pup she called me. I rolled and rolled, but she had to use a towel...I think a bath could not have made me wetter...OMD

At least the Tigers had more sense...they postponed their baseball game for another ducks allowed there!

Yesterday I had more fun, though...growlmy was wearing a lumberjack costume! She cut down a small tree that was more of a weed than a down it came. When the stump was being cleaned up, I helped growlmy complete the putting my seal of appawroval on it, BOL!

Well, I hope tomorrow is not such a washout! I want a real growlmy, not a ducky one...

It was such a rainy day when I got up...sigh...Growlmy is off today, but no walks fur me...too rainy she said.
It is a true day of April Showers!

So instead she and I decided to peek at the goings on in Dogster-land. Wow-wee!
I am a DDP!
That's a good way to break up the boredom of a rainy day!
Shower Power! BOL!
April showers bring forth May flowers and DDPs, BOL! Too bad that doesn't rhyme...

Thanks to all who are sending me pretty things for my page, including prezzies, Pmails and pictures.

Well, growlmy says I have to do some guard duty so she can go and get something she calls groceries in the I will bark with you all later.


Sniff...Tissue Grabbing Time...Sniff

Growlmy got this touching, tissue grabbing note in her inbox, today:
Not sure of the source, though...nevfurtheless, it is well worth the read:

Here it is:

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer.

I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure as they felt that Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him.

Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion.

We sat together for a while after Belker's Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why."

Startled, we all turned to him.

What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.

He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?"

The six-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them;

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride;

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy;

Take naps;

Stretch before rising;

Run, romp, and play daily;

Thrive on attention and let people touch you;

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do;

On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass;

On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree;

When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body;

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk;

Be loyal;

Never pretend to be something you're not;

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it;

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.

There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.

You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good, so, love the people who treat you right.

Think good thoughts for the ones who don't ~ life is too short to be anything but happy.

Falling down is part of LIFE...
Getting back up is LIVING...




One just can't read this with dry face windows...

And I am 10, just like Belker...but soon I will be 11, OMD! I AM getting old, BOL! But I still run like the wind...I just take longer naps to recharge the bstteries, BOL!

Help! My Zzzz's are being stolen tonight! Not good, growlmy...not fair either! Grrr! Appawrently there is a time zone keeper who decreed that tonight an hour will be stolen, and instead it will be added to the end of the next weird is that?
While an extra hour of light will aid my barking at anything time, I really like to do the Zzzz's, too. Sigh...
Growlmy says that she will be feeling it fur sure, the sleep deprivation, on account that she is working till 11pm, and then has to get up at 630am...

The urka-gurka greenies that is, not the St Patty's ones...yet!
Only pawppy got those green yucks, so far growlmy & boss-boy and unfurbro have not..yet!

Today I am a DDP! WOOFS!
It seems I am also sharing the spotfurlight with my kitty brofurs...sheesh, too much stuff on one day, I heard growlmy saying that, because she has to go to her work soon...and she can't do Dogster/Catster stuff there, not that she would have time fur that, BOL!
Thanks fur all the comments, P-mails, prezzies and pics!
Here is the picture/memento Cooper and his furmily sent to me:

Well, I gotta run and find out what that silly running loose...again...goat is doing...and bark at him, too, BOL!



Norotorious-Violenticurse...Going Green, Greener And- Greenest

March 3rd 2013 4:07 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ]

Yup, It IS furry green.
My page is green, a lot of my pictures are green, or at least I am wearing some green things. All of these green things are recycled, also known as going/being green. (Growlmy hasn't had a chance to get any new ones taken...but I am not grumbling...)
Pawppy is green...wait...did I just say that? Well, he was green about the gills as the saying goes, but now thankfurly he no longer looks like a green Martian, who ate all the green cheese, BOL!
Are Martians Irish? I truly do not know, but the Irish might think they approve of the greening of the earth!
Growlmy says her work palace is way too green lately, too. UGH!
The gassy-throw-up-eye-titus crud is in there, and pawppy was dealing with it, too. (Lots of urka gurkas, YUCK) Growlmy is healthy, Wow! She must be waiting to have the final green hoorah...BOL! I hope not though.
She said they diagnosed it to be the norotorious-virus that likes to go on those cruises...
And urka gurkas is not the only trouble this norotorious-virus likes to cause...well, no further info needed, BOL!
It should be renamed Norotorious-Violenticurse!! EEEUUUWWWW!

Martians: Green
My Page: Greener
Pawppy: Greenest

A couple of evenings ago, all of a sudden I perked up my ears...and why?
Well, next thing I knew, there was boss boy and unfurbro standing in my contaminated with Norotorious-Violenticurse den. I sure hope I don't have to see them turn green either. But of course I was furry glad to see them! A whole week of spring break with them!

There is also some green peeking out from under some areas of the yard where the snow banks have started to melt in the beautifur sunshine we had today. How long will that last before the next dumping of snow?
I am ready for a pretty green spring fur sure! That would be the greenest of all!

And now for a complete change of direction...Go Blue!
The U of M Wolverines just won their basketball game with the green MSU Spartans...I hope I don't offend any Spartans who might be reading this entry, but both Bossboy and unfurbro go to the U of M...and blue is another color that looks so beautiful to me, because it also means the sun is shining...sun puddles to bask my aging bones in...

Have a nice Green St Patrick's Day!
Stay away from pawlaces inhabited by that Norotorious-Violenticurse!

My DDP Pic from Cooper and furmily
Always these exciting things seem to happen on days that growlmy has to work...sigh...that is the shucks part...but pawppy should be here most of today, because it's Saturday...though I did hear that he will be going away fur a couple of hours this evening...peeps seem always to do what they want nevfurmind what a pup might want/need...which is their loving company...well, I shall watch out the window for the neighbor's activities, and fur the return of the vehicles that growlmy and pawppy left in to do their respective things...

I will try to convince growlmy to help me woof some more later...


Woof - Chase - Clunk - Yelp - Ouch:(

February 17th 2013 1:11 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 13 people already have ]

Oh, boy, I really scared growlmy the other night.
It was supper fur the peeps...and that also means its time fur me and my kitty brofurs to help the table gathering. We gather around to hopefurly snag a tidbit...and of course I always get my chewy then, too.
Well, Minko challenged me and so I got up and followed him to the kitchen...and then all of a sudden with a big woof, I chased him back into the dining room. Bad timing:(
I furgot that pawppy was still there...and as I tried to get at Minko, he squeezed through the chair legs, but of course since I was focused on him, I furgot to judge the space too well...and OMD, I crashed into the chair leg. I let out a loud yelp of pain, then I started to keye-yeye-yeye...really loudly, and I was standing there on 3 legs.
Growlmy was in a panic, because I have clunked into things before, but nefur yelped or cried like that. She thought I had truly done it this time.
So she made me lie down,, and tried to take a feel of the leg/paw, but I wouldn't let her, nor pawppy, I growled and snapped at him...oops!
So growlmy grabbed an ice pack, and I let that be on me fur a short while, then I got up and limped, but I was bearing weight. Phew!
Growlmy picked me up and put me into my soft doggy bed and I was there for a long while, not shaking or whining...and then I heard a noise outside and down I jumped...more oops, but I still ran outside, a little slower perhaps than is my normal...but growlmy could see that while I was sore, at least there was not anything terrible that was going on, just a big she only sees a limp if I jump up from a long nap...She says I need to be more carefur so that I do not break kitty is worth me getting injured she said...BOL! Hey, I am a JRT...OK, growlmy, I promise to try to be a little more carefur, and maybe not chase my brofurs...remember I said maybe!
And through all of that, Minko & espawsially Pipo just sat there and smirked at my discomfiture...Grrr! I shall have to chase'what did you say, growlmy??'
