Zip-zap, it was Valentine's Day and then it was March 1st.
WowZer that means, surly Spring is on its way?? Just around
the corner??? I certainly hope so!(My thoughts on Sunday,while
pawwingly waiting for Grand-kids and that sausage/pancake
brunch! Followed by an afternoon filled with dominoes and farkle.
As well as snack patrol under the dining room table! Gotta
love those kids!)
I sat on Gma's lap and helped her play her dominoes. So she
wouldn't be off the charts with her score. I woffed for a
snack.....I mean everyone else was snacking! I had a couple
pieces of popcorn and then.......Kids were eating jerky
Gma made them. I wanted some too! I woof,woof,woofed some
more! Well Gma got up and got me 1 of my own puperoni sticks.
Cut it into about 2 dozen microscopic pieces! I mean,I needed
her bifocals to see them! Then she laid them on a coaster on
table.....About 18" away from my snout! She said, Mazy you
need to practice your patience...What practice my patience!
I'm always waiting on you, to do this or that for me!!!!!
There were my bites of pup stick just laying there! I shook
with anticipation,but no bite! Grand-kids said, Gma aren't
you going to give it to her???? Yippy! Someone's in my
corner! Gma said, after I take my turn,she can have a piece.
If, I don't spread it out.....she'll eat it all AND be
back asking for you to share your jerky!
Then hooman-sis got into the chat....Said, "Jaxcen...this
would be like Gma taking a nice, hot, fresh monster cookie
out of the oven....puttin' it,in front of you and saying"
Jaxcen, it's yours, but you can't EAT it yet!" Don't you think,
that would be hard???????????????
ALL RIGHT! NOW I have sympathy in my corner! Give me a bite!
I relaxed,stopped shaking like the energizer bunny....Helped
play Gma's tiles....she took a turn,I got a bite! Worked for
ME! I was practicing patience!!!!!!!!Gotta tell ya, I wanted
to jump out of her arms,scamper across the table,grab my
snacks and run! Did I?????????????NOPE,I did not! I waited
patiently! OMD! I HOPE she doesn't want to practice patience
again anytime soon!(Maybe, it was a full moon and brought out
the Evil in Gma?)
Snow arrived last night. It was 48 for awhile today. Temperature
has been falling since lunch time. We have about 6" of new snow.
Gpa had to shovel out all the cattle feed bunks before he could
dump grain. He had to take the tractor and push snow in the ranch yard.
Poor Gpa had to shovel the steps and patio too! I went out
for a few minutes while he was shoveling. Wind is suppose to be
on the way.
Gma tortured me by cooking a roaster full of meat for the barn
kitties this afternoon. Gpa is almost out of canned for them.
So Gma cooked meat to mix with their kibbles. A supply run is
in the near future. Depends on what the weather does. Gma and
I shared a gingersnap this afternoon. After we worked our
paws to a frazzle with deep cleaning.
I hope all my pals are doing well? I have lots more to say
about the craziness of March in North Dakota.(NO time today)
Gma has to start her pot of bean soup for supper. She has
a bowl out with stuff to make biscuits. I sssuuurrreee hope,
I can have a bite of biscuit with jam?????I think, that would
be a pawsome desert for me. YES,WE ARE barkin' about food again!
How do you think:the furs and hoomans survive the winters
up here? We snack alot! We enjoy really good food! Gpa says,
"thank you, God! Gma is a darn good cook!" He's been eating
her stuff for 39 years and 11 months. Can you believe it?
I told you pals, they are older than DIRT!
Catch ya later,
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy

You are one lucky little doxie girl Miss Mazy!
Homemade jerky are da best! Finley's momma makes some and it are good! Usually I only get little pieces. But one time, my momma and Finley's momma was eating it when dey were on a road trip. They had pulled over at a rest stop to switch out who was driving and my momma put da jerky down on da center console while she buckled her seat belt. I was sitting in Finley's momma's lap in da front seat and i snagged dat jerky and it were good!
always some exciting things going on for you Mazy
Yeah, homemade jerky is da best-- when ya can snag it!!
Readin' your diary always makes me hungry, Mazy...bol!
Yayyyy! I'm proud of you for being so patient! I'm sure it was worth the wait!!
