I know, Grandma Loves me the Most of the Whole Furmily!
I am Number Uno! The Top Doggie .... I know this Cuz....
I have been given 1/3 of the Queen size bed. If I want more space,
Gma gives me 1/2 of her 1/3 of the bed. I'm small, but can be a bed piggy when in the Mood!
I have a blankie on ever piece of furniture in the house...Some pieces I have 2 or maybe even 3 blankies. A little doxie can never have enough blankets. I have T-shirts,sweaters and coats for every season and type of weather. I decided this past year,I like them!
I am fed before Grandma ever eats. She cooks meatz just for me!
I have venison most of the time. I like other kinds of meatz...So
sometimes,I have chicken,fish,cheese or an egg. Once in awhile, I have a piece of beef. (After all Grandma and Grandpa raise beef for a living...I should know what beef is!)No scraps! If Gma can't eat it, then I can't eat it.....So I have my own personal cook and food sampler.
I eat a special small breed chicken and brown rice kibbles for my main food. Gma bakes oatmeal peanut-butter pupper biscuits just for me. I don't have to share with anyone. I also have a variety of good treats stashed in our food pantry all the time. I always have a busybone and greenie stash. I like mini puppy biscuits,too...
The Fur Docs say, I'm a perfect weight. I have the shiniest and healthiest fur....My teeth are nice and clean. I have fresh breath.
My nails grow, like I have fertilizer on them.....Keep doing what we are doing was my report.
I love the blow dryer on me! Gma will give me some blow dryer, while she stands with wet hair dripping all over the place. I also love her
massager for her ouchies. She will wait and let Gpa give me massage 1st. When we are both really,really dirty...she will give me
a tubbie 1st., then she will clean up. We could just share a tubbie? Nope, that would never do....Grandma is just too dirty when she is done working....
She takes me on car rides. Walks and plays with me. Fixes my broken
toys. Makes sure I have lots of toys to play with. She brushes me,
puts ear and eye drops in,grinds my nails and takes care of my toophers. She keeps my blankies and pillow-box bed clean.
Well, I could good on and on.....I think, this would be more to
I have a personal
personal groomer,pastry chef,
chauffeur AND general GOPHER!
In return Grandma has a constant companion,endless kisses,alert
and greeting system,personal snuggle bunny and heatpad,someone
to talk to,personal foot tickler,an exercise buddy
AND constant ENTERTAINMENT so LIFE
isn't dull and boring!!!!!
It's a WIN-WIN situation for both of us.... I LOVE my Grandma cuz, first she LOVED ME! Did I mention, I am the Princess of the Ponderosa and I could be slightly spoiled! What who me?????????
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
and I LOVE MY GRANDMA bunches and bunches....
Huggies and Kisses for all the Mommas!!!! Mazy

A couple nights ago....about bedtime,Gma grabbed
her aspirin and a muscle relaxer. Pills and Gma went
after her nightly glass of ice water. She opened the
freezer for ice. PING!
What was that? She looked in her hand.Nestled there
were 2 aspirin !!! Where's the flexoril? Oopsie! We
had a run away pill!
Gma runs and shuts the gate between the kitchen and
living room. What she doesn't want my help? This looks
like a new game to me!
She's in a PANIC! Down on the floor,looking and crawling
all over the place...I wanna play this game! Let me
in the kitchen, I can crawl on the floor!
Now Gpa hears Gma just going crazy,so he joins her
on the floor. Asking, are you sure you dropped the
pill???? They keep searching and crawling and here
I sit in the living room! I wanted to Help,as I have
a great nose!
Gma asks for the dirt devil. She gets a lint brush for
the clothes dryer. She starts fishing under the fridge
and stove. Hoping the pill is there....BAD NEWS! NOPE!
GOOD NEWS it is now clean as a whistle under those
appliances. Found all kinds of treasure there but
No Pill! 90 minutes later....Gma gives up and we
all go to bed. I think, she chased pills in her
sleep? She was praying the pill went down the heat
Last night, Gpa comes in after his evening chores.
He had been fixing fence and was very thirsty! He
gave the fridge a Goliath pull and grabbed a beer!
PING and a PLOP!!!! What was that???????
Gpa looked at the floor! The yellow pill had been
caught on the rubber seal of the fridge door. He
grabbed it and gave it back to Gma. She wouldn't
have believed it, if she hadn't been standing
right there. Saw the whole thing,with her own
The fridge had been opened and closed at least
20 times in the previous hours. The pill never
fell off...WowZer! The next time they want to
crawl on the kitchen floor...I want to PLAY TOO!!!

Dandelions are butterfly food! We will NEVER EVER think
again about spraying dandelions. Not that we ever did chase
them, year in and year out....Time consuming and wasn't a
big deal at this house. Gma always thought, if she killed
all the dandelions she'd have half the green growing stuff
she does have.The green stuff holds the sand out of the
The soil in the yard is compacted. She sure doesn't have
the funds to hire a professional. The yard would need to
be all dug up. Built up with top soil and totally replanted.
You would desire to put in a watering system. All the roots
of the trees make the project more difficult.The whole
thing is just not do-able for this Gma.
We are SO HAPPY WE have a ga-zillion dandelions blooms.
This year we had hundreds and hundreds of baby Monarch
Butterflies hatch in our shelter-belt. They are so
beautiful and growing very fast. We just Love to sit
outside and watch the butterflies.
We've observed that our Monarchs are living on the
nectar of dandelions. There is Nothing else in bloom
for them to eat. Gma said, her 6 blooming purple
dwarfed irises wouldn't last long.
God provided the little sunshine yellow blooms for
our Monarchs to survive. We are so Happy they have
a banquet table scattered throughout our yard.
Amazing how fast they grow,as we watch them on a

I went outside with Gpa for a couple hours. He's been
working on corral repairs. The HUGE boards are 16 ft. long!
He needs me to supervise! I have to tell him when he is
lined up with the last board.
I also sniffed,snooped and hunted awhile. I was muddy,even
my collar had to be washed. No rain today as in yesterday.
We woke up to this heavy,thick,pea soup fog...just like it
I was bored with helping Gma. I'd had the cheese crumbs
after she made up a pan of seafood enchiladas for supper.
I wasn't interested in helping with dusting,glass cleaning,
laundry and changing bedding. I was saving my tongue for my
daily artistic masterpiece on the living room picture window.
After the tubbie, I was toweled followed by Zoomies... I
then, ran to the bathroom cryin' for my blow dryer! I laid
on the floor and Gma dried me out. Made me happy,all
toasty and roasty. Followed by a Quick nap...I was recharged
to read group and pmails, diary entries. I looked at Cute
Cinco De Mayo pictures. Thanks Sunshine for my picture....
As a "thank you", I told all my pals...You were having a Patio
Party with nachos and furry margaritas for all. We could all
break in your Momma's new furnishings. Let the evening
double as an Apartment Warming Party!!!!! What apartment
is an apartment, if it wasn't broke in with a party??????
Sunny,better get to the store for the ice....don't forget
to unpack your blender...I'm bringing my Hot Hamburger
Cheesy Nacho Dip! I'm bringing a couple gallons...Know
you will have Ga-zillion pals dropping in. Don't thank
me...what are pals for??????See ya soon! Kisses,MAZY

First, I must tell my doggie pals that my Kat fursis,
Precious was Royal Member of the Day at Princess Diva
and Prince Charming Group on Wednesday.(Gma said, I had
to say that because we do have joint pals. Psssssttt
Really I was a Royal member 1st.! Cuz, DOGS RULE!!!!!!!
Or is that,DOXIES RULE??????????? They do here! That's
my story and sticking to it....
Our place is a ZOO! We work inside until lunch. Do lunch
and clean it up. Work outside until time to clean up.
Clean up and then make supper. Eat,clean up that mess...
I try to get Gma to play a little with me after the
dishes. Then we crash in the rocking chair with a book.
The next day, we start all over again! Going to be worse
after the veggie garden is planted. Gma and Gpa are both
using alot of Aspercreme on their ouchies! I wonder? Can
I buy it by the 55 gal barrel? (This is how you buy oil
for the tractors) Instead of 3 oz. tubes...
We have some Puter time cuz, it rained,lightening and
thunder last night. Gma couldn't mow the ranchyard!!!
Did we take the day off? Nope! We had to do Saturday's
work...So, if it doesn't rain Friday or Saturday...
the mowing will be done. Cleaned house and did laundry
all day long!
I was bored and went outside with Gpa...He is rebuilding
a cattle corral. I have lots of stinky stuff to sniff out.
I help Gma clean the steps,patio and cattle room 1st.
By the time I was a tired, a neighbor came and had coffee
with us. I took a Nap!
We did mow the house yard,fertilized all the flower beds.
Raked sticks and planted wild flower seeds. Moved some
tiger lilies to another flowerbed. Last time we were
moving day lilies. Just too thick...Every few years Gma
thins them out.
Still cleaning up after the nasty cottonwood trees.
Precious and I are tired of having the stickies pulled
out of our paws and fur. Hope those old trees are done
with that mess soon.
Gma did my grooming yesterday before supper. So I'm good!
If, I can just keep myself out of those stickies,the corral
stinkies and the mud holes????? This will be tough!!!!
We have 1,000's of baby Monarch Butterflies this year.
Gma says, in her whole life,she has never seen so many...
I've been chasing them... A new Fun outside game!
They are Bootiful!!! I do not Hurt them....
I Hope all my pals are having a Pawtastic Week.... Gma
has the local errands,haircut,massage and library tomorrow.
If it rains this weekend...Puter Time!If not...Yep! We'll
be in the yard!!! I did hear the grill is being fired up
again... We cooked some fresh venison for us furs today...
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy

OMD!!!!!AG WEEK NEWS WIRE REPORTS...CALF STEALING...
WE found this in our AG paper and found the whole
Caper very strange.
New Mexico authorities have arrested three men found with a
220 pound calf in the backseat of their car. The Carlsbad
New Mexico current Argus reports that the men are accused of CATTLE RUSTLING.
They were jailed on charges of suspicion of larceny of livestock,
conspiracy,lack of bill of sale and exporting livestock. Luna
county sheriff's office says a deputy pulled over the Honda Civic
and saw the animal sharing the backseat with one of the alleged thieves.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT???????? Gpa and Gma raise cattle.
This means they have stock cows and their crop to sell is the calves....
Now since both have had plenty of experience with trying to handle young calves....
They are scratching their heads??? A 220 pound calf
would be a good month old or older. They WOULD NOT quietly lay in
the seat of a car..... Hum????????? Did they drug said calf????????
If it was a dairy calf, the calf could have been used to regular
handling by a person.... But still, transporting in the back seat
of a car?????? Very strange!
One spring we had a blizzard in late April. The cows went with the storm.
When the storm was over, the cows knew where home was. The young calves did not....
They had to go a good mile from the barns
after plowing trails with tractors. Catch the calves,1 by 1.
Lay on them in the back of a pickup. Transport them back home.
An exhausting experience. A calf in snow up to its shoulders
can jump and run, when you are trying to grab it......
Calves are major kickers and can work you over real fast.
Still wondering what they medicated the calf with????
We'd like to ask Miss Coco Rose and Mr.Puff, if they know where this place is????
We'd like to say, Miss Coco and Mr. Puff....
KEEP PRACTICING ON YOUR BARKING ALERT SYSTEM....
Your new job will be protecting the home front.
Let's hope there are NO PUP Nappers in New Mexico????
Finally a nice soaking rain during the night.
Will reduce fire risks. This will help green up the pastures
and add moisture to the fields. We have some pretty large
standing puddles this morning. Everyone have a great weekend.
Catch ya later,Mazy

OMD! WHERE DOES MY TIME GO? Here it is the middle of April already... We FINALLY HAD A SOFT SOAKING RAIN THIS PAST FRIDAY. OVER A 1/2" AND IT WAS BADLY NEEDED... We've had sprinkles off and on ever since. The temperatures have been more wintery than spring like the past few days..... Ugh! I Hate that! Still too much harsh wind....
The weather has turned cold,damp,gloomy....We have a chance of rain everyday this week. We sure need it,as we continue to have harsh drying winds. Today's high was 37....I wore my heavier sweater out to potty ALL day long...I went out with Gpa after lunch for 45 minutes. I sucked it up and went without a sweater....I was sniffing and snooping in the hay yard. Nobody wants me to catch my sweater on the big hay bales. Be caught and not able to get out of the bales.
Sometimes, I want to sniff out all the holes and tunnels in the bale piles. Gophers didn't come out to play with me ...Too cold!
Gma gave the grooming works on Saturday. My peeps celebrated their 39th. wedding anniversary... I know my numbers 1,2,3,4 and 5..cuz, I'll be 5 in July. Boy, that time went by fast...Gma had to explain 39 to me. I just didn't know that number. She said, it was...the same as forever. Her and Gpa have been together their whole adult lives. Gpa gave Gma a card that was a FUNNY! Said, he knew right away, they'd fall in love,get married, have kids AND spend the rest of their lives DRIVING EACH OTHER CRAZY! He-He...I think, they do that really well!
Gma made them a peach pie. I was allowed to taste the cooked peaches. They were delish! Gma Hit the jackpot this past week. She was able to have her favorite SEAFOOD on Thursday,Saturday and Sunday.... She said, the BEST April ever! They ate out 2 of those days and this doesn't happen often.
Well, we've been doing the usual cleaning,laundry and cooking. I've spent all the time I can toasting in the HOT laundry. I helped clean up the cattle room,patio, outside furniture and steps. Our cottonwood trees are dropping the ugly stuff now. Making a Big mess all over the place. The cooler weather, the trees and bushes are not progressing with their leafing out. The perennials are still growing. The tulips and dwarfed irises are not budding yet.
Gma and I are babying the seeds, we planted in the house. They germinated well...Not sure, they will make viable plants for outside.
Maybe, we have wasted our time and money trying to avoid buying greenhouse plants??????? The greenhouse will like a failure on our part.
Since the weather has taken a real chill.... working on the future vegetable garden is at a stand still. We need to spray for buggies around the car garage and exterior of the house. Hope to have a day to do that this week. I have to supervise from inside. I can't go out until the spray is dry. Sure helps knock the bugs back around the house. Our barns are just too close to the house. Due to the house being built in the 40's. We are calving now. Several new moos everyday. Saturday we had to put a calf on the bottle. We think it is a twin?
Gma and I are still playing toys in the evenings. Then snuggling in a warm blanket while she reads her spy mysteries. Everyday,I'm still busy designing new window artwork. I'm very talented with my nose...
Well, I'd better run....time to start supper. The oven beeped...so I can now toast in my bed in the kitchen.... It's Suppertime!
Have a Great week pals....Sending tons of hugs your way. Mazy

I SLEPT LATE THIS MORNING. IT WAS 20 last night,47 sun and windy today.
I awoke to find out after my PAWSOME EASTER, that I am
the ROYAL MEMBER OF THE DAY FOR PD&PC GROUP. WOWZER! What a
surprise and a honor. I put the pretty PD&PC picture on my page.
Thank you Princess Diva and Prince Charming for the picture
and my beautiful crown.
I had a PAWTASTIC EASTER! The indoors picnic was so much FUN!
I had 1/2 of a cheeseburger....I've Never had cheeseburger!
Of course, I cleaned my plate. I also has a bite of cake that was made for
fresh strawberries and whip cream. This was super-duper delish!
The eggs were hidden indoors for the grand kids. It was cold and windy outside.
Each had 30 to find....Keeping things fair by assigning certain colors to each child.
They also each had 1 large egg.
This was their BIG PRIZE egg. 1 was silver and 1 was gold.
They had a coupon in there to be able to go to the capitol city
of Bismarck and see a movie. Also filled with quarters to buy
treats at the movies.
I helped the kids HUNT their eggs. NO EGGS with my name??? Gma took
3 eggs and filled with my treats. Theirs had candies in them....
I found all 3 of my eggs. I'd stop after each find...pop the egg open,
ate my treat and then LOOK again. I don't know why I had only 3 and they had 31 each????????
We PLAYED A CARD GAME CALLED BINGO AND A DICE GAME CALLED FARKLE.
I laid on Gma's lap and helped her play... The kids play Extreme sports on the WII thingy,too.
We had TURKEY breast for supper. It was done in a BIG EASY,infra red deep fryer
unit out on the patio. No oil... It was delish!
They had German dressing,buns and corn. More dishes....My Gma and Gpa were
POOPED OUT when the kiddies went home at 8 p.m.
I'd better run...I have tons of p-mails to answer....
Today the PRINCESS OF THE PONDEROSA is reigning
at PD & PC group...
Hugs and Kisses,Mazy
