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!!!!

Pullin' doxie fur OUT! Many tries to log in.(finally) Can't
access groups. Can read pmails and answer. Tried loading a
HALLOWEEN PIC and tells us we can only display 3. So we dropped
that plan. Tried to make 1,2 and 3 show 2 Halloween pics and
1 Fall pic. Won't rearranged my pics. Says update to Dogster Plus.
We are a Dogster Plus and current to April 2015.
Over the weekend, we could get into 1 group but not others.
Could read pmails and group mails. Could send pressies.
Could NOT comment on pics or diaries.
We are SO FRUSTRATED,as our free time is still very limited
Due to Fallwork on the Ponderosa......Tried to pmail HQ
about the new issues and the mail doesn't go through.
We are Busy and I'm taking good care of Grandma and Grandpa.
The weather is colder. Heavy Frost of 21 last Friday. Garden
plants are piled up to haul away. Still working on windows,
cutting flowers off and the sticks keep a comin' with all
the hard wind. Lots of leaves but haven't started raking yet.
Grandma has 5 BIG BAGS OF APPLES TO MAKE: pies,bars,dried apples,
strudels and apple sauce. We have them in an extra fridge. Until
raining or some outside things are finished. Bumper crop of
Apples with all the extra rain on prairie......
Cross my Paws and say a Prayer for this to Post.......
happy Fall Pals,
hugs and kisses,

I know my pals haven't seen my fur or paws around here
lately. I'm ALIVE and thrilled that dogster community has been
bought. Now the site is being revamped,so in the future we
can all connect again! Yippy!
I'm afraid grandma won't let me paw around on the puter when
she can't supervise..... Not FAIR,as I'm not a puppy anymore!
For those of you who don't know:
I've been restricted on my own Ponderosa property due to
a Momma Raccoon and her 3 babies. They act like they own the
place....Come and eat with the barn kitties. Less than 20 feet
from my back door. They have been within 3 feet of grandma and
grandpa. OKAY! So grandma says, it is a safety issue for ME!
The Momma will chew me up and spit me out, if she thinks,I'm
a threat to her babies. Who by the way are bigger now,than I
So if that isn't bad enough, kittens from this spring and
summer have decided that the fenced in Front-yard it also
their territory! The Momma hisses and growls, if I get too
close to those kitties. They wanna play and I wanna play!
But NOPE, she isn't having it! She is very protective of
her first babies. I ended up in refresher training, on
STAND,LEAVE IT, STOP AND NO! I also have found myself using
a harness and leash...As the renter planted Sunflowers by
grandma's garden...... They are very tall now!
The grasshoppers and other things call me into the field.
While grandma is picking vegetables. I didn't answer ASAP!
I was trailing a scent of probably deer. So,now I can't be
loose at the garden. When I was a puppy, I went into sunflowers
and came out a 1/2 m from where I went in. Grandma freaks
Things became very dry in July. Then the rains started.
Now we think we are Ducks! As it has rained everyday or
night for a couple weeks. Temperatures are cool for August.
Gardens are 3-4 wks. behind schedule,due to weird summer.
We've filled our 13.5 cut ft. vegetable freezer with our
produce. Still picking and processing. Lots of tomatoes
but very green. Looks like we will have time for the winter
squash and cantaloupe to make it.....If the rain just stops!
We have made pickle relish,garlic dills,hot dills,bread and
butter pickles and pickled vegetable mix. A good 70 jars.
Most goes to the grown kids for their use. Gma has processed
veggies 11 days out of the last 14. Makes cleaning house,
laundry and daily meals a challenge. It's August and Gma
is running out of Energy! This happens every year! Seems
to be Worse this year??? Gotta be that old age thingy?????
We hope to be able to make our pasta sauce,taco sauce
and chunky salsa. We will cover the 6 chest high plants
at night if necessary. All the rest of the tomato products
we still have plenty on hand from 2013. Gma nursed the
garden through frost,high winds,heat and cold,insects,
2 rounds of hail,sand storms,too much and too little
rain! The plants survived it ALL! Just things are late!
We were still picking peas in August! Who ever heard
of that??? They are a cold weather vegetable. So is
cauliflower and broccoli. It took 3 long days this week
to process all our veggies. At least the corrals were
cleaned before the rains came....Gpa is still making
hay when it isn't raining! He caught the baler on fire
this summer. Bearings went out and started the big round
bale burning. He was able to kick it out before the baler
was toast! Had to stand and watch the ha bale and field
while it burned. Then carried water to the field to make
sure there were no cinders left......
We are busy around here! Starting to think of all the Fall
work we have to do before winter sets in... We hope it is
a very long Fall.....Gma has managed to cook every night
except for supply runs. Also bake something for Gpa every week.
She even baked monster cookies for the grand-kids. Went tubing
with them at the lake. Snuck off a couple times to go fishing.
Due to dogster's issues,we just couldn't waste time trying
to get into the site everyday. We hope by the time things
slow down...DOGSTER WILL BE 100% BETTER THAN IT HAS BEEN
THE PAST YEAR! Sleep this growing season has been short
for the old folks. I've had plenty and lots of naps!
I HOPE ALL MY PALS have been enjoying a pawtastic growing
season! I thank you all for the messages and birthday wishes.
I turned 7 around July 4th. We tried and couldn't send
thank you's and pressies. Some went through and others did not!
Finally, Gma gave up and hopes you all understand.....
Labor Day is just around the corner! I hope everyone does
huggies and kisses,mazy

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, I'VE MADE IT HOME! RAIN LET ME
SNEAK INTO THE OFFICE AND PAW THE PUTER! THIS MORNING
WE WENT TO THE VEGETABLE GARDEN AND WEEDED. GPA started
the tiller and ran it between the rows of plants....
I had to wear my harness and a long 15Ft. nylon leash
to the garden. I sure didn't understand, what was up with
that???? Gma said, I had to stay right where she knew
where I was...How come???????? I guess, we have a big
fat Raccoon running around our ranch yard. I haven't
seen it...Gma has seen it 3 times and Gpa has seen it
several times too....Gma told Gpa it is eating barn kitty
food. Gma thinks, it is a Momma Coon. It has babies close by.
Well babies,let me see the Coon and babies!!!!! Gma
doesn't want me to sniff it out...I'm a hound you know!
Want to play with it, of course! Then upset the Coon and
have it rip me up! Really,I'm the Princess,I'm not suppose
to need a leash on my home turf! I don't like this,but I
was good about it....I sat and watched while the garden
was cleaned up....
Then it clouded up some more and rained....Was a cold,damp
day. Stopped raining so we could have burgers off the grill
for supper. Well they did...I had boring kibbles of chicken
and brown rice...The usual! I'm on medicine for my GUT!
12 hrs. after being home my tummy betrayed me! Same thing as
before:Stress Induced Bacterial Colitis.
Same meds as before! I did the preventive stuff before
and during doggie hotel. I ate and drank well,slept good,
played with a little doxie. They said,I was an Angel!
I've finished 2 of the meds. but will be on antibiotics
for a whole 10 days. They got the runny poops stopped ASAP!
I feel fine and I am my usual entertaining self! I am
sticking to the old folks like glue! All I can say, is they
better get serious about looking at the 5th. wheel travel
homes. Cuz, if they want to RUN...this little doxie has
to go along! My tummy doesn't bother me, when I'm with my
They have tales to tell about their 'CATION, but not today.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO EVERYONE.....Gma is still catching up
on putting everything away. Rain has settled in and mowing
is on hold. Gma says, they both played SO hard they are
POOPED OUT! Sounds to me, like the Vacation thingy was almost
like Working?????? Well, if that is SO,why did they go?
Leave me behind??????? Gma and I did take a nap this weekend.
We Never do that! She says,she thinks,she needs another
nap.....What's up with Her??????
Kisses and Huggies,mazy

THANK YOU HQ for choosing me as one of the DDP's for
April 29,2014. I'm honored....Thank you pals who sent me
pmails and pressies. What a surprise and so very kind of
you! I love each and every fur!!!!!! So happy dogster is
up and runnin' again. So we can play with our pals....
A big hug and thank you to the Fur who sent me some Zealies.
I tried to search the number on the gift and it tells me
that ID doesn't exist. I will use those zealies wisely...
Special days and furs who are sick or need encouragement.
Since we can no longer buy any zealies...I tried to renew
my Plus Membership but you can't do that either. I wrote
to dogster support with my e-mail: they bounce back as:
NOT POSSIBLE TO DELIVER....
Gma hopes our pages are still here when she returns home
towards the end of May. Dogster,even with it's tech issues,
is still near and dear to our hearts...kisses,mazy

PART 3 TREATMENT AND FUTURE PREVENTION
HOWDY PALS- Last part of my Stress Induced Bacterial Colitis Saga.....
Digel- stopped the ugly poo within 12 hours. This was just pawtastic,cuz
then my little butt,started feelin' better right away! It's made out of all kinds
of fruit pectin and good tasting stuff! Just squirt into my mouth.... The
2nd. med. was called Panacur and was a white powder. This was sprinkled
on my dry kibbles. (Fur Doc said, Gma could put chicken broth on there,
so it would dissolve and stick to my kibbles.) This medicine,I think was
for settling my tummy??????? If there were any nasty parasites in me,
this would wipe them out! I'm wormed on a regular basis. It was a
just in case thing....I suppose because there are so many barn kitties
around here? In case, there had been something I snagged off the ground
and ate.....Maybe,Gpa never saw it??? The 3rd. med. is the antibiotic
called Metronidazole. 1/2 pill,2x's per day for a week. This wipes out all
the very nasty bad bacteria in my intestines.....So my system re-balances.
This isn't flavored.....At 1st.,Gma just popped the pill in my mouth,rubbed
my throat and I swallowed. I decided after 3 days....I DON'T WANT IT!
So, I started rollin' it in my mouth and spittin' it out! Now it is wet and
wants to fall apart! HeHe! Things are improving, Gma is going to put
it inside some cheese.....We have to do this until Friday mornin'....
I'm getting good and spittin' it out and makin' a mess! Then when
it get soft...Gma is afraid I'm not gettin' all of it......My appetite is
normal and healthy. I never did lose the sparkle in my eyes or
gloss in my fur.....I was plenty lively,just haywire guts!
Next week, Gma takes me back to the Doggie Hotel while she packs
and leaves for her Momma's house. I'm in charge of keepin' Gpa
in line...Seeing he does the Honey Do List and all that jazz! We get
along fine! I can work more treats out of him......Now it is nice enough
that we can hunt and stuff! Besides the striped gopher,I also scared up
a bunch of baby garter snakes today. It was in the high 60's. As I told
you, the Fur Doc wants to see if this is a 1 time deal???????
If not,Gpa will have the medicine here for me to take.......If it happens
again, the Fur Doc is going to have me take Digel and Probiotics,when
the vacation thingy comes around. Gma has these calming treats and
the caregiver has some things like that too. She also has one of those
misters with the calmin' stuff sprays into the air... NOW this is beginning
to sound like the ROYAL TREATMENT! I'M A PRINCESS,SO WHY NOT!
The funny thing is that I showed no signs of any stress...Except
not eating my normal meals......Gma told Gpa, well, we better be
taking the LOOKIN' FOR THE HOUSE ON WHEELS VERY SERIOUSLY
and GET A MOVE ON FINDING SOMETHING! Obviously,we are not
going too far,for too long without her......PALS, I'm really tryin' to
HELP GMA OUT HERE! She really can't do the harsh winters any
more.... She's told Gpa, he has to get us to a warmer climate....
Fighting chronic pain 24/7 for 40 yrs. is hard on anyone...Gma says,
it's wearin' her out before her time......
I'll do my best to read everyone's new entries before Gma sneaks off
on me...I'll report back in late May on how things are going. We have
one bottle calf,a twin. Calving is going pretty good,so far. Saturday
until Thursday we are having some pretty night temperatures. Tomorrow
is very breezy! Weekend back to 40's and possible 40 mph winds....
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy
APRIL 25TH. ...HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET INTO DOGSTER FOR DAYS.....
Today is Friday and it was 68,sunny and only light breeze.....Can finally get on dogster. See our pups on our pages. All our picture captions are gone.
Our account doesn't show Mazy as a plus member....Mails sent to dogster support bounce back to our yahoo saying can't be delivered. Been trying for some kind of contact for about 10 days....About ready to throw towel in.....
Gma leaves early Wed. a.m. and won't be home until late on 20th. of May. Has a couple wks. to plant garden,do yard and house,get ready for S.Dakota trip with Grandkids...... I'll miss you pals...Will try and pop in over the next 3 days.

PART 2....OMD! FALL-OUT,TAKE COVER,PHEWY!!!!!!
Yesterday, I left my Doggie Hotel Saga with being home,tucked into bed
with Gpa and keeping my eyes on Gma! I was miffed! During the night
I was up doing more poopies...Gma heard me and got up and changed
my potty station. By Wednesday mornin',I wasn't mad at Gma anymore....
I was not playing with my meals and eating right away.....Sometimes,I
play with my breakfast until early afternoon,when I finally finish it. You'd
think,that means,I get a bowl full. NOPE, it is 1/4 c with 10 pcs. of Purina
burger/cheese soft food topping my Nutro Small Breed Whole Chicken/
Brown Rice and Oatmeal formula. So anywho, ate and pottied...Softer
than before??? Then, I switched to poop,poop and more poop! OMD!
What's going on??????
I was bright eyed,wanted to play just making too many poops! Gma
told Gpa nothing but her pup food...What? She has a upset tummy!
I ate supper and what no venison nibbles like almost every night? Gma
did let me have a teenie tiny greenie (mostly rice) for bedtime snack.
We did our regular stuff in the evening and got ready for bed. So,we
are all snuggled in,Gma was watching Perry Mason. Gpa and myself
were fast asleep! It's 11:30 p.m., I DASH OUT OF THE COVERS.....
RUN DOWN MY PET STAIRS,RACE THROUGH THE BATHROOM.
BY PASSING MY SMALL POTTY STATION. RACE TO THE ENTRY,
WHERE I HAVE THE EXTRA LARGE STATION. I'M NOT AS FLEXIBLE
AS I WAS,WHEN I WAS YOUNGER!!!!
Gma jumps up and follows me, to see what is matter???? I NOW HAVE
LOTS AND LOTS OF MUSHY POOP! I'VE PLASTERED THE STATION!
I'VE NOW POOPED MORE IN 1 DAY THAN I EVER HAVE IN MY WHOLE
LIFE! These last dumps are like a cow on too much fresh green grass!
Big huge splats and no shape at all.... I'm done,Gma changes everything.
Back to bed we go.....took time for me to settle in and go back to sleep.
Gma said,my tummy was just rumbling....Gpa sleeps through the whole
Sometime during the night,I'm not talkin'.....I did this scenerio all over
again! Gma was out like a light. Gpa heard me, but didn't get up....
The next morning, the big station is all plastered again,when Gma
and I start our day. I'm still hungry and eat all my breakfast...It isn't
even 30 minutes and I'm running to poop some more! In less than
an hour,I have 3 poops they are very watery. The last 1 Gma can see
fresh blood in it. After that,I kept going back,doing circles,like I had
more business but nothing happened. I did this until 2 p.m.,but no
Gma had been trying to get through to the Fur Docs,line was busy!
Thursday is cattle sale day,so 1 Doc is there. It's calving season,so
2 were out on calls. The last Doc was in surgery with a cow. When
she finally spoke to the Vet Tech,they said, bring me in at 3:30 p.m.
By now,I have a very sore butt! Gma feels guilty for taking me to the
Doggie Hotel. Her good time for her Anniversary,now doesn't seem
like such a good time.....
She is also wondering,if I snatched something off the ground,while
walking with Gpa on Fri.,Sat., or Sunday??? Then she sees on
dogster, there are new food and treat recalls. She spends 2 hours,
checking to make sure nothing we have is on the current lists. She
is very worried about me. I'm not drinking as much as I should.....
I'm not feeling so good and I stick to Gma like glue. My eyes
are bright,no fever.....but,something is wrong!
We go to town and I was happy to take a ride in the car. I sure didn't
know,I was ending up at the Fur Hospital ! We arrived a little early,
expecting to wait with livestock emergencies. Only 1 Doc was there,
our new Girl Doc....She was in surgery with a cow! FUTURE FAST
FOOD BURGERS makes this nice 3 yr. old Golden Retriever and
myself have to wait??????????
As soon as I got in there,I wiffed the air and OMD! It's the place where
they always do something to me! I'M ON GMA'S LAP BUT SHAKING
LIKE A LEAF! Doxies throw dander, when they are anxious or stressed...
Gma goes back to the car, gets my big fluffy blanket and wraps me up.
I'm better now,but I want out of here A.S.A.P. I wasn't anxious when
Gma arrived to take me home from the Doggie Hotel.
Gma is really worried, I wasn't a real happy little camper either! 90 minutes
later,it's my turn. I'm going to be seeing the Girl Doc. This might not be so
bad after all??????? She doesn't act like, I'm a stock cow! Gma gives her
the whole story of my activities since last Friday. My short stay at Doggie
Hotel. My history of only being away from them both 1 night in my whole
life. What went in me and what came out of me! A yucky sample in a jar!
The whole 9 yards,as every detail was important to the Fur Doc. i'm always
current on all vaccinations.
Chrissie speaks softly to me....Examines my back and hips.(cuz,I'm doxie).
She feels my whole body and my tummy. Looks in my mouth and listens
to heart. Weighs me...They runs tests on my sample. While I'm there they
do my heartworm blood test and clip my nails too... Gma and Doc have a
Big POW-WOW,took forever......She tells Gma, that she keeps very accurate
records and is on top of things. Doc is impressed,that I'm cross trained
and NEVER SOILED anything in the HOUSE! It was a bad situation....
She was pretty sure I never picked anything off the ground that Gpa didn't
see....She said,I would have been sick before I was.....Since Gma didn't find
current recalls on things I eat,she wasn't concerned. She told Gma, she
had seen and treated...as well as had a Lab with the same issue....
Gma was told, I HAVE STRESS INDUCED BACTERIAL COLITIS. This was
after running tests and looking at my yucky Gma brought in....I HAVE WHAT?
LITIS????????? NO I DON'T...I HAVE A SORE BUTT AND AS SOON AS
I EAT .......PHEWY! I STINK AND POOP EVERYTHING RIGHT THROUGH ME!
NOW that I've grossed all my pals out.....I'll tell you the next time,what my
medicines are. How they are working? How long I have to take it??? What
her recommendations are for me returning to the DOGGIE HOTEL before
the month is over. Remember Gma is going to see her Mom for 3 wks.
So I was going to go there the day she packs,Gpa is suppose to pick me
up after Gma is on the very early silver winged bird. I've stayed at my
house,by myself in the past....The Fur Doc said, Do THIS and SEE WHAT
PLANS are taking the grand-kids on vacation to South Dakota in June....
These stays were scheduled, so I would get used to the place. The plans
for S.Dakota are 5-7 days. Well, I might just change those plans! You
think????????? OMD! Would my hooman sister be upset! I was there
at the Doggie Hotel when I was a puppy...A couple times when Gma
went shopping for the day. I spent 1 day and 1 night there. It's nice
clean, 5 star place....So, Gma says. If you're wondering why, I'm so
OLD and haven't been there on a regular basis???? It's cuz, this lady
was very sick a few years ago. She had to do a ton of Doctoring to be
made well again. Gma has known her for decades.....She used to groom
Angel Sassy Foxie, when Gma's arthritic hands couldn't do it anymore.
She's a SWEET LOVING LADY....I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED???
