HOWDY MY PALS-Dogster has been working really well for
us the past few weeks. Today something is UP? We can sign
in and out,read our mails, but not reply. We CAN NOT ACCESS
ANY OF OUR GROUPS. Everything was fine on Saturday.......
Don't know, if this will post or not? Wonder if,HQ is pulling
some maintenance today??????? We sure hope the problem is
something like that????
We were thrown into winter,since I last wrote a dairy. We
had 3 skiffs of snow, but the Big dump ended up in the Twin
Cities in Minnesota....I bet my hooman brother isn't too
happy?????? Gma and I,are thrilled! The coldest night,this
past week was -8 without a windchill factor. The warmest day
was 20 ish. Suppose to warm up a little by middle of the
week. Weather advisory until tomorrow night at 6 p.m.
Grandson only has a couple basketball games left and his
season is over. Granddaughter has her 1st. game on Tuesday.
Their high school girl's Volleyball made it to state play
offs. So a couple basketball games were cancelled.
Gma started on the holiday baking. Helps keep the house
toasty in the cold weather. I snuggle into my bed in the
kitchen to stay warm. Sniff the pawsome oven smells. Snag
a cookie, here and there. I also snagged popcorn and newly
dried fall apples this past week. OMD! Gma brought home
last night some of her steak. (Couldn't eat it all) So,
instead of my venison,I'm eating Beef Sirloin. Gpa couldn't
finish his big prime rib. I think, there is something
wrong with the barn kitties Eating Prime Rib! I mean,
really, Gma already cooks for them! They have the nerve
to tease me through the house windows.... I'm suppose to
be the only spoiled Fur around here! The guard duty wasn't
SSSSSSSooooooo BAD! The steak is yummy,but I thought
I was getting pressies! The big box they opened was
wines...They bought after the wine tasting evening.....
Here I thought Christmas was coming early....
Thanksgiving is here....Gma has the meal planned. She can
do the buns and freeze them. Make the chex mix too, this
week. The apple and pumpkin pie have to wait until the day
before. Since there is only 1 girls basketball game this
week..we are going to dig in and bake several kinds of
cookies this week. we managed to clean a freezer. Now
there is plenty of room. Our goodies won't be smashed!
I hope all my pals had a pawsome weekend,
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy

I'm sure slappin' my tail, that Gma doesn't make me go out
to Trick Or Treat! Those poor little ghouls and goblins are
going to have a 45 MPH wind tomorrow night! WowZer, that will
be awful! We don't have any little ones in our rural neighborhood.
All the folks around here are grandparents, except 4 families.
The kiddies all go to town to do their Trick and Treating...
Woke up this morning,knew is was cold and damp. I had my
normal belly rub, then I was snatched out of the warm big bed.
My sweater was jerked on and carried outside. Okay! This was
not COOL! The leaves were wet from night time sprinkles. The
cold wind was out of the north. It was 29 and not a stitch of
sunshine. My paws were wet and cold.... I DID A FAST POOP and
refused to Piddle. I have 2 perfectly good potty stations
inside! I think Gma should have to run to the ancient outhouse,
if she is gonna start my morning in such a shocking way!
Anywho,I came in,had breakfast and ran to my CAVE and hid! No
more of that sneaky stuff for me! She did big scrub and cleaning
and I stayed out of the way... It hadn't warmed up too much by lunchtime.
However, Gpa was gonna take me for a hunt! I didn't
wear a sweater,cuz,I was lookin' for mice...Runnin' here and
there kept me warm...When I came in, I ran and sat on the heat
vent until I was toasty!
Couple days ago,she put the sweater on,forced me outside while
she worked on leaves and mowing. It was 40,damp,no sun...plain
ugly! So I followed the riding mower 2 rounds. She ignored ME!
So I went over by corral, rolled in something stinky with my
clean sweater. Should have gotten her attention! She looked at
me,shook her head and kept on mowing! How could she??? Then,
I started runnin' to the door....Finally after 3 trips, she
stopped: said, 'you cold?' NO KIDDIN'! Wiped my paws and let
me in. I supervised from the back of the loveseat for the next
2 hrs. Then she came and got me again! Seasons are changing...
we've had a lot of high winds, gray cloudy cold days. Here and
there a really nice Fall Day. Now they are talkin' about snow
flurries on Monday!!! If so, I hope, it is the beginning of a
LONG INDIAN SUMMER STRETCH....
My folks hope to finish the leaves and rain gutters this weekend.
Still have some spraying, as well as put away tools and yard
furniture. Gma has outside of upstairs windows to do. Grandpa's
new pickup need a wash, wax and cleaning. Gma hopes for a nice
day for that job. We have apples to dry for snacks. Pies and
cookies to make and freeze. We are eating pumpkin bars now
and had apple pie last week.
All the canning stuff has been put away. Pantry and freezers
are full. It was a pawtastic garden.... A hunter brought us
some duck/goose jerky, slim jims and summer sausage. I hope
my folks don't like it! Maybe I can HAVE IT?????????? We
change times this weekend. Nov. 7th. rifle deer season opens.
Grandson is playing boys basketball now. His team won 2nd.
place plaque,last Saturday. Gpa's home community ended up
with 1st. It was neck and neck, down to the last minute....
Granddaughter has started Jr. High girls basketball now.
Most weeks, my folks have 2 games to attend. More guard
duty for me. Only pawsome part is extra treats! I don't
understand why, I can't go to watch the basketball ball
games? Something about the kids would Mug Me! I'd want
to chase up and down the court after the ball...It looks
like my soccer ball, I run, chase and play with.
Southern pals,send us some warmer temperatures. Could also
use some rain. After a very wet growing season,all the high
winds have dryed things out. Windy days, Gpa doesn't haul
hay bales....Big RISK of prairie fires...
What do you think of this??????? Gma sewed 14 buttons on
2 blazers this afternoon. DID SHE FIX 1 STUFFIE FOR ME??????
NOT A ONE!!!!! SHE HAS A BIG BAG FULL IN THE PANTRY! DOESN'T
MATTER, THAT I HAVE 6 BOXES OF TOYS....A DOXIE CAN NEVER HAVE
TOO MANY TOYS ...ESPECIALLY WHEN AN ONLY FUR...
Then when she's done, she said, her fingers were tired!
Oh really???? She can only wear 1 jacket at a time, so
why repair them both NOW???????
HAPPY HALLOWEEN MY PALS,
HUGS AND KISSES,MAZY
P.S.- SO HAPPY DOGSTER IS WORKING BETTER THIS WEEK!

Hi There Pals- A couple days and October will be history.
We are still chasing leaves when the weather allows. A lot of
very hard winds this fall. I've been hunting mice and killed
a few outside. Grandpa has still trapped several in the basement.
The barn kitties catch mice everyday. The seasons are changing
and they look for a warmer place to winter.
We are still workin' on our fall list. Managed to clean the
gas grill up. The car is cleaned but needs to visit the
garage for servicing. Grandpa's new truck is waiting for
another warm day,then Grandma will clean it up. Grandpa
has hauled away a couple stock trailers full of leaves.
They just keep coming.....Pretty soon, they will be thin
enough to mow and chop the rest. Big old trees are a pain
to clean up after. Hundreds of hay bales are in the field.
Can't haul them in on these high wind days. Risk of fire is
too great. After all the rainy stretches, during the growing
season, we are actually dry now. Could use some rain to
reduce fire risk.
Volleyball and Football season for the grandkids are over.
Now my old folks are running to Boy's grade school and Girl's
Junior High Basketball games. The grandkids did come and spend
a weekend with me. I had a blast! Grandma made them vanilla
popcorn. She was breaking it into small chunks,when it was
cool. Her hands slipped and a big piece few on the kitchen
floor. I ZOOMED in, snagged it and boy was it good! She didn't
even have time to try and snatch it away from me! Hunting
mice is good practice for stealin' dropped goodies!!!!
Today she tricked me and put that nasty flea and pest stuff
on me... Any fleas I pick up,come from messin' around with
the barn kitties. The mosquitoes are gone for the year.....
I supervised the fall change it stuff...You know, the batteries
in smoke alarms,water filters,furnace filters,etc...Also
window washin',cabinet cleanin' and appliance cleanin.
We still have a lot of outside things to put away before
winter shows up....
If you think, I've been MIA....I have! Dogster is HIT and
MISS on being able to access groups,mails,dairies and see
pals things. Since the last time I could get into dogster,
it took 4 days to access the site again. I NEED someone
to sit at the puter and try all day....That isn't gonna
happen! This little doxie doesn't understand,how things
are pretty good for a short time and then NOTHIN' WORKS
once again???????? Took an hour of messin' around to be
able to get into a couple groups today. Hope our diary
will post....HAVE A PAWTASTIC WEEK!!!!
