Just want to Help my Pals under this Heat Dome with some Tips for Staying Cool!!!!! It was 86 sunny and very humid... More Hail fell around our county last night. A couple areas about 20 miles away were wiped out! People said, "the hail looked like snowbanks when it was over." We had only .25 of rain and no hail.... The clouds after dark were white with pink cottoncandy coloring all through them. Above and below those were bluish purple clouds. Gma told Gpa, I think the White Combine is Coming..... It did, but missed my house! Possible to have serious Thunderstorms for the next couple days. I did go out Hunting this morning with Gpa. I was in the tubbie to have sand washed off. Gma used tepid water to cool me down. She thought, my body was pretty warm. This afternoon, we were out 30 min. Gma made me stay in the shade 50% of the time. No clouds right now. Thunderstorms are brewing in Montana. Expected to travel this way.... Stay safe and stay cool....Cuz, I LOVE all my Pals!!!!!

1st. day of a Brand new week....It is day 2 of the very HOT weather.
It is currently 95 with heat index of 112 and very high humidity. Sun has now disapppeared and cloudy with storms brewing. Just posted a tornado watch for until 10 p. and it is 3:40p. Storms of the past week have been bring us rain but not pounding rains. The storms have been splitting and going north and south of us. So many areas have had the white combine (Hail).... the state has seen everything from nickel size to grapefruit size hail. Gma says, she has never seen hail, grapefruit size! She has never seen hail 5 1/2 inches deep on the ground. Somewhere north of us that happened Thursday night. Wowzer! There wouldn't be a blade,leaf or plant left standing!!!!!!

New bulletin ...there is a severe storm about 10 miles from us. Potential for tornado.... Better go check the sky! Gma says, another night of colorful lightening with rocking and rolling going on!!!!
Be back when I can.....Getting darker in the house.... Gma says, my gopher stories and other games for the week must wait!

We are going to get my Calm Ease out so I don't get upset over the weather..... Yippy! Treat Time.... Kisses, mazy


Ice Cubes with Snow in July and Buggie Buffet

July 9th 2011 7:44 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ]

Yesterday we were scurrying around the yard trying to mow all the green stuff off. Didn't matter, if it was grass or weeds! Out of the blue,turned very humid and started to rain. Only one-third of the mowing was completed. We did bake that cake for Gpa! (I let him have chocolate for my birthday). Cuz I had birthday cookies,mini puppy bones,yammies wrapped in chicken. Since he shares his ice cream with me, I let him choose the cake.
We ended up having severe thunderstorms roll through the prairie. No flying ice cubes or tennis balls at my house! Some puppers up here did have them....How do you play with a tennis ball made of ice?????
We had lots of lightening,thunder and 2" of rain. Tornadoes were spotted in several places around the state. Never heard of any major damage....Very humid and the storm front lasted several hours. When it was bedtime, we said our prayers and went to bed...
All Clear this morning, except for the yard is covered with fluffy dry snow like stuff....Snow in July! Give me a break! No it's not the cold kind of snow, it is summer snow! The big old cottonwoods are shedding their cotton. It is a Big MESS!!! It's coming down so heavy, it is on everything.... My Paws are fuzzy when we come in. My back is white.... I'm being washed off everytime I turn around!
The cotton flew into Gma's iced tea....It was trying to land on our chicken while we were grilling it for supper. There are piles out there several inches deep!
Guess what we are doing tomorrow???? We are vacuuming up cotton before the wind moves in towards evening....Trying to keep it away from the front,back and cattle room doors is a Big Mission! The patio and furniture is plastered! I'm not into being washed off with a damp cloth, everytime we come inside.....
Like the Bugs this year, there is a surplus of the snowy stuff...It tickles my nose and sticks to my toophers. My paws look like I'm wearing mittens.... I wonder how long this will last? Gpa has 4 gallon jars of yucky barn flies he trapped to get rid of..... Then we have to set the traps again....Zillions of flies,deer flies,horse flies,mosquitos,dragonflies,millers,ants,ticks,bees,wasps,ho rnets,babycrickets and hoppers..... Is this what extra moisture does????? Gma isn't too happy.....Cuz,Bugs just LOVE her! After 6 mos. of winter now we are fighting with the buggy army from Hell....How many times can a person spray in a growing season????? She sprays around the doors everyday. The yard has been sprayed..... still there are way to many.... I was even biting at the flies the other day. While we were grilling supper,Gpa picked 16 ticks off his body. He had to get off the tractor to unplug the haymower...I guess, they hitched a ride home with him...Boy, I'm sure glad I use Bio-spot.... the bugs are not bothering me at ALL! Except those flies when it was so humid...
I keep telling Gma and Gpa to get some Bio-spot! Do they listen to me?
Guess not! So, here buggies,here buggies, lunch is being served on the patio! Gma and Gpa on the platter,coming right up!
Kisses, Mazy


Toys,Treats,New Pictures..This,that and other things!!!!!

Cottonwood is a flyin'...good thing,I'm not allergic! Looks like snow driftin' through the air. Gma used to be allergic, but I guess after almost 40 yrs. her body got used to it!

It was bedtime when my people arrived home with the supplies. I went through every bag lookin' for my Birthday stuff! I found a rope toy and played with it, while Gma put all our stuff away. I ate my busybone after they came home. I always save something they leave me to eat, just in case they are late or somethin'!

I have a brand new stash of busybones,puppy mini biscuits,yammies wrapped with dried chicken and buger stuff we use for treats instead of food. I also have a new stuffie! It is a Beaver with a squeakie! I posed for pictures with it today. Gma was sneaky and didn't give it to me until today. She knew I wouldn't go to bed...I'd stay up sqeakin' all night. Since I nap, when they are gone. Poor Gpa had to sleep to go back to haying today.... I had a birthday cookie! Gma did buy eggs AND promises to bake Gpa and I a cake the 1st. cooler day.
It is suppose to be 87 today....

They hurried at fast as they could... The whole evening was shot! Takes 2 hrs. of going and coming time. 2 hours for all the errands.
They stopped and ate supper. So they were gone for 5 hrs....

Gma and I slept in, cuz she was awake until after 1 a.m. Gpa and I hunted before lunch. Gma and I had to do laundry,cut up and freeze 10 lbs. of chicken... Ran the vacuum,cleaned the bathroom,washed a ton of dishes and scrub all the kitchen appliances. We still have to clean the back steps off. The front ones are done. We are doing the ribeyes on the grill tonight. We made a brown rice and vegetable pilaf and have fresh broccoli to steam.

We are down to making supper,cleaning that mess up. A short evening walk and playing with me. Everyone clean up and it will be time to go to bed....Another day is HISTORY! We just don't know where all our TIME goes????? I heard that it's about time to mop floors and mow everything down again. We never did get those weeds pulled...

Thank you Everyone for making my Birthday an Extra Special Day for me!
We also posted the last pictures we took of Baby. Gma could put them up when loading my toy pics. Not as hard, as it would have been to do before.... We still miss her so much!
Hugs and Kisses, Mazy

Patriotic Doxie...Is it me?

Happy Birthday to the U.S.A. .........

Start Licking...Ice Cream for Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy 4th. of July! It\\\'s a HOT one, up here on the Prairie! A Good Strong 90 degrees in the shade! We will be firing up the grill for supper. Most of our suppers in July are cooked on the grill. Helps keep the house cool.....We are having baked sweet potatoes, pork chops, tossed green vegetable salad,corn and rice crispy bars. YumYum!

Last night over at Lake 5, about 2.5 miles as a crow would fly. They started shooting off fireworks at dark. I was in the frontyard doing my bedtime potty. I didn\\\'t see them but I heard them. Of course, I barked at them....I did my business and went inside. The air was running and I didn\\\'t notice them after that. Gma stood at the back door and watched all the pretty colors. Gpa and I beat it to bed! I snuggled up next to him and I was out like a light. Must be the extra warm weather the past 4 days?????? So the Boomers weren\\\'t the Major pain they\\\'ve been for me in the past! Sure they will shoot more off tonight!

Wanted to wish EVERYONE A HAPPY 4TH! We worked all day here on the Ponderosa...but we are making Hay for winter time. So what\\\'s new? Only a holiday, when it rains.... Gpa is out baling Hay. I wanted to leave a picture here of our country\\\'s beautiful FLAG and some fireworks in the background.... Also brought ICE CREAM for my PALS to have one for stopping in at my page.... The BIG QUESTION IS: IS THE DOXIE PICTURE, A PICTURE OF ME OR AN IMPOSTER???????????????????? what do you think???????

IN 2 DAYS, I\\\'LL BE 4 YRS. OLD!!!!Will I feel any older at 4????? Gma says, I\\\'m more mellow this year than last.... I wonder, what I\\\'m getting for my birthday?????I haven\\\'t seen any extra packages around here....I bet she hid my pressies....Cuz I have such an Awesome Sniffer! I sure hope Gma makes me some cake....I love cake!

6 of my pals had birthdays today! I guess, July 4th. is a Big DAY for birthdays?????? I hope each of them had an Awesome,pawsome,super-duper day!!!!!! Only FUN things..... they like to do, happened!!!!!!
Big Hugs and Kisses, Mazy


I Had The BESTEST Day!!!!

June 27th 2011 7:28 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ]

I had a Super Duper Day! I helped strip the bed,played with the red fuzzy duster. Toasted in Hot sheets and towels. I was very patient while Gma did the inside chores.... I ran from phone to phone to help figure out which phone, the lightening zapped on Sunday morning. Messing up our ability to receive or make a call. After the thunderstorm on Sunday, they went for supplies and groceries. I stayed home and stood guard on the place. The rain took care of Gpa starting to cut hay. Too wet!!!!!!!

Gpa was gone for appts. No Prairie Time for me this morning. So I decided to curl up on Baby's fluffy pillow bed and stay warm. The sunshine came and went all day. A little breezy, only made 67. It was suppose to be in the mid-70's.

Gma took me down the prairie trail that runs along the hay yard. I stayed on the trail for awhile, but was bored....So, I started jumping in the very,very tall grass. Using my secret weapons for finding gophers and mice. I caught a gopher.... I was so proud! Gma saw Gpa coming home. She made me leave the gopher and let her carry me to the house. I'm not a baby, I could have ran!!!! Well, as Gma walked through the hay yard...she found some of the grass is hip and waist high on her..Wowzer! She is long legged... She was tired by the time we were out of the tall grass!This is why I have so many muscles.... I really get a workout!

Gma came with Gpa and I out on the Prairie...So she could see where he has been taking me. I ran,sniffed,dug and jumped... I dug in some holes,got so warm from all of that: I ran to a waterhole from the rain and cooled off by standing in it! Gma was watching me dig and stepped in a really fresh,bright green cowpie! HeHe! She had poopie shoes and poopie toes....So how come, I got a tubbie????Two tubbies in the past week........ She took a tubbie after mine. She used the bathtub to scrub up her Keen shoes. I wanted to help scrub shoes and tub but nothing doing! How come,I'm either too young or too old for stuff, I want to do????????????????
Almost forgot, Gpa and Gma saw a bluebird. Have only seen them around here the last couple years. He was so pretty...

Gma and I made sirlion and veggie kebobs on the grill for supper. Made brown rice and veggie pilaf. Dessert was fresh fruit salad. I had my grilled vension. I never ate breakfast or dinner until 4 p.m. I was so upset, that Gpa and I didn't have a morning outing. After me pulling guard duty most of Sunday. I did a mini-hunger strike! Just to let them know, I wasn't a happy Princess!!!!

All in all, it was a Great Day! Caught a gopher,played in the mud,sniffed cottontails,jumped and ran in tall grass, dug in gopher holes. Had both Gpa and Gma walking the prairie watching me have FUN!!!! Had a tubbie and did zoomies ...Played with my stuffies and created a new masterpiece on the picture window. My nose could be the next,Monet. Read what my dogster and castser pals have been up to. Looked at new pictures they posted. Now it is time to put Gma to bed.
I saw the list for tomorrow and it isn't any shorter than today....
See ya, when I can....Never know what going to happen around here.
Hugs and Kisses, Mazy


What's Up On The Back 40.....

June 22nd 2011 2:47 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Another week has slipped away. Where does all the time go? My Aunties came, went to their All Class Reunion. We had a nice vist, with some extra spoiling and then they were gone. Oldest person attending was 101 years old. My Aunties are 68,70 and 73...Is that old???? They're lively Aunties and very active ladies.

The rain just keeps coming...The rain was suppose to move off today. Be dry for 2 days. Hoping that would happen. Our lawn,ranch yard are quickly gaining ground on my total height. I'm already swallowed up in the hayfields. We have to walk on a prairie trail, which is now pretty muddy. Cooled off so much we had to restart the furnace. When I found out the furnace was running, I went and laid across it to Toast and Roast....Cuz, I'm the TAR Baby! There are some ugly clouds brewing outside with wind! Looks like a thunderstorm is coming. I try to scare the wind away with my Bark...

I've developed a Real Fear of the wind. This has gotten worse since Old Baby left us. Gma just gave me a Calm Ease Treat. This seems to help, calm me down. It is Chamoille and Valerian. I go outside, the hair on my back stands up, in a protective mode. Gma doesn't know what to do for me?????? Since Baby left I'm shedding alot and usually don't. Gma says,"is this anxiety?" Some of the days I eat real well and other days, I don't....I drink plenty and have tons of energy. Except in all this rainy gloom, I snuggle in alot more.

We didn't do too many chores today. I helped make the bed, always easier with me in the middle. Gma pulls on the sheets to flatten everything out. I jump up and down and all around the bed. I wanted to help with dishes, but that didn't happen. I did help re-arranged the folded clothes before they went to the dressers. Pawsome FUN!

We spent almost the whole day at the Puter. Answering pmails,reading messages from groups,posting devotionals. Trying to catch up with what all our pals have been doing.

The Souris River could not be held back, any longer in Minot,N.D.
We watched the live broadcast, as they evacuated a large portion of the area. Our hearts break for all those fellow N.Dakotans who will lose their homes. There is also flooding of the Missouri River in the Bismarck area. The flooding is a result of heavy snows in both Canada and the Dakotas,along with lots of rain. We're sure you can see pictures,videos and reports on the Internet. This is the worst flooding in many decades. We live many miles away from these parts of the state. Our state only has about 645,000 people. So it is TRUE, you know people,here,there and everywhere.

Here on the ranch, things are muddy and way too wet. Corrals are big sloppy messes. Less than a week, the yard and ranchyard are overgrown. How can those grasses and weeds grow so fast in the gloomy gray rainy stretches? Gpa should be in the hayfield making hay. It is almost a month late in starting. Just too wet! Gma hasn't worked in the hayfield for at least a dozen years. She is going to try, to cut some hay,3 days a week, for just 3-4 hrs. to help Gpa out. Takes alot of hay to make the winter. The last 3 yrs. we have bought alot of extra hay. Due to more severe winters, you must feed heavier to keep the cattle strong and healthy. OMD! It's suppose to be Summer, we're sitting here thinking about Winter? It's because it takes the whole growing season to prepare to survive another winter. Gma says, "Nope Mazy girl, we're not going to think about Snow!"
