What a Hoot! I'd like to say that the farm animals and I built this Two Paws of Snow....But,alas that would be a lie! Why would I have a taxi cab in my ranchyard???? Some HuuuMans have just too much time on their hands! Gma said, "if they followed Gpa's steps in a day....they move and shovel snow, the way we do. Just make a pile and move on!" Pretty Funny,anyway! So thought my pals would like a Peek?
It's cold here today but sunny! High was about 1 above. I managed 30 minutes of hunting. I caught a bunny in the fence. Gpa said, RELEASE...I let the bunny go! Minus a little Fur from his Puffy Tail...After that, I had a Big lunch, I was starved! Chasing all those rabbits!
Gma said, "Come summer, they are Vermit! I can catch as many as I want! Especially if, they are lunching in Gma's vegetable garden." Yippy!!!! Come Summer, Come Soon!!!! No catch and release when Summer Comes....

Hi there furpals- We're caught in a weather loop! A couple warm days per week. If, you can call the teens, WARM???? By Friday night..temperatures are dropping,a new cold front is arriving! Snow in forcast through Tuesday....3" of new snow this morning!
Came down really fast... Rest of the time... it is just Super freezing, freezing and more freezing! Cold is when your piddle is frozen before you finish!
I've spent more time inside this past December and January, than I have in my 4 winters of being here on the Prairie. I can't counter surf like Precious, my leggers are too short! I'd sure like to try! Precious and I have been playing chase. As well as, hide n seek about 3 times everyday. Relieves some of the Cabin Fever, we are both suffering from. We spend time scoping bunnies from the back of the loveseat....We both got into Gma's crocheting floss basket. I was running around with a brown ball of floss. Throwing it up in the air! Precious took a red,yellow and green ball of floss out. She unrolled them all over the bedroom... Precious showed me the basket. She started the new Game! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! The basket has been out everyday of my life. I Never got in it,until Precious showed me, those Balls can be un-rolled.... It was so much..... Zoomie Fun!
Four days this week,I sucked it up.... I went out sniffing and hunting. I chased bunnies every day, I was outside. I have a new game for after supper. I dig out all my toys...Yep, living room, kitchen and bedroom stashes...I drag out, every single one of them...I throw them, all over the house! I have Gma get on the floor and play puppy with me. We do hide n seek. My favorite game is: I have the toy..... you get it! Chase me,chase me, chase me.... I forgot, I always go wrestle with Gpa while Gma is making their supper.
CAN Anyone tell me what Green Grass smells like????? I have forgotten! Both ends of the house roof need shoveling off... The potty is leaking on Gma's floor. Gpa did get a couple
fix-it projects done with the last storm. He has been having one headache after another with tractor problems. Somehow, he just keeps plugging along... He's not the crabby type! The snow got so deep in one of the corrals.The calves walked over the top of the 6 ft. high corraling. Then those moo-moo's went back to where their Mommas were. Now they are All mixed up again! Gpa said, leave them together for now. Sorting again with so much snow... could cause us to injury some. I never saw snow drift that deep in the corrals before. I think, they need to buy me a sled to ride on. What ya think,pals????? Mazy needs a snow sled.....?????
Well, it's just about time for Gma to get our supper. I'll be catching up with all of you this weekend. The weather is going to be Nasty,again!!!!!! Any suggestions for new games for Precious and I??????? We're googling on the PC for New Indoor Games.....Huggies and Kissies, Mazy
ps-BTW-Momma Shawna of the Kirk Puppers got to leave the hospital this afternoon. We is Jumpin' for Joy! We know her puppers:Ashton,Lucy,HD,Copper and Haro aaaarrrreeeee So
Happy to Have their Momma home!!!! We just Love Momma Shawna
so much!!! She is our group leader with CDAC...

Last week here in south central, North Dakota the weather was truly bizzare! Mon./Tues. temperatures were above zero and in the low 30's. Sunshine made snow on the roof melt and drip. Built us a new batch of glistening icicles. Wed. early
in the day was pretty nice. By Wed. afternoon wind was winding up, sun wasn't hanging around and then! Things began to Rock and Roll, around here!!!!
No sunshine,blowing,drifting,snowing and ever so very cold!!! The temperatures were -35....... Wind pounded at 30 to 40 mph for 2 whole days! We ended up having white-out conditions. Large portions of I-29 and I-94 were completely shutdown...(This is very BAD, pupper pals!) If, you decide to Go out and around those blocked stretches...Well, the Highway Patrol says,"you're on your own! Until the storm is over! Nobody is coming looking for you!" Should only be ER vechiles on the road..like Ambulances for emergencies...They have an escort...
I was sure glad I wasn't a calf,yearling or stock cow.... I felt so sorry for those cattle. I laid on the back of the loveseat, watching the weather. The wind kept throwing snow all over the picture window. I couldn't even see the liliac bushes, about 20 feet away. Those bunnies....they were all hunkered down until it was over... Yesterday the 1st., bright sunshine and made 8. It was below zero with windchill. I was out with Gpa 20 minutes....sniffing where bunnies had been because we had sunshine...It sure looked warmer from the house than it was!
Today, no sunshine but made 19 before temperatures started falling. We are having light soft snow like you see in picturque movie scenes. A Courier and Ives scene. No wind, so feels much better... Gpa has so many drifts and so much snow to move and pile. We don't even know how many inches we had because of the wind. The average temperature for Jan 1st. should be 22 above. December snow fall for Bismarck and surrounding area should be 3.5 inches. Really,you say????? That's what I said,too! Well, we had 2 plus feet in December...More than most winters for total Snowfall. Most of winter is ahead of us... Going to be long, cold, windy, snowy and one for the History books, I think????
New Year's Eve Gma cooked the Alaskan Sockeye Red Salmon Filet.
It was Pawsome Awesome! I don't understand, why Gma made Gpa try Salmon again??? Just cuz, it had been years since he had any that was fresh caught by family. Not from a fish factory. He agreed to try it, again....You know what happened? He started with about 6 oz. and the rest of his meal. Gma made him yellow rice,mixed vegetables,cucmbers with ranch and garlic toast. She expected him to poo-poo the fishie! Well, he didn't! He gobbled that up and ate another 6-8 oz.!!! Baby,Precious and I still had some salmon, cuz it was a very large 1/2 of fish. I expected a big container in the fridge for Gma and me to share this week at lunches....It's a small box, maybe 2 lunches.
After almost 4 decades Gpa isn't a picky eater like he was way back when.....He eats froggie legs, olives, lobsters, scallops, broccoli, sweet potatoes, all kinds of peppers, califlower and some other pretty wierd stuff! Maybe, people's do become more like each other, as they get old?????? Gma and I pretty much eat anything that won't eat us,given a chance! I just don't get the Chance! She decides, what I will and won't eat...Phooey!
Us puppers and Precious talked Gma into a slow pace for the weekend. We ALL wanted to Zoom around dogster and catster. We wanted to pop into our groups. Play a few games. Chit-chat with pals. Look at pals new pictures. See their new backgrounds. Read their diaries...so we didn't miss out on any Great news. We had so much FUN catching up with all the news and new stuff,everyone had to share....Jan. 1st,2011... 9 of our furpals had Birthdays!!! This has Never happened before. So many birthdays on the same day.... We were sure Glad, we didn't miss any of those. We sent Birthday wishes to each one...Can't hardly wait to hear: what they did on their special pawsome day!
Alas, tomorrow we will be back to cleaning,scrubbing,laundry and other boring chores! If, the sun is out and in the teens...I'm gonna be out checking things over. While Gma shovels out all my running trails around the house yard. So, those bunnies better have those special snow shoes on that
Gma says, God gave them so they have an edge on me! ...cuz, I'm tracking them down!!! Kisses, Mazy

Another snow storm is coming....Actually 2 snow storms! All before New Year's Day! Boy, I'm sure glad I was able to hunt the last 2 out of 3 days. No hunting yesterday! It was a sunny warm day! Baby and I had to stay in and hold the fort down.
The day was ever so long! They were gone for 8 hrs.! Those trips when they have medical are TOO long!!! It was dark when they arrived home with a load and a half. Spent rest of the evening putting everything away.
Bought all Grandpa's supplies for all the house fix-it projects,too. Around Christmas, we had a couple new problems. The throne needs new guts...it started leaking on the floor. I don't piddle on the floor! Even if I did...I've never seen blue piddle,before! Have you????
Window trim on 2 of the new windows: needs some interior sealant. Those nice days the shingles on the roof were warmed by the sunshine. Melted snow and made ice. Dripped into Grandma's living room through the window trim. She wasn't Happy!!! We knocked down icicles all the way around the house. One was Huge! Grandma thought, about 50 pounds???? She had to bust it up with a snow shovel. Then drag the big chunks away from our front porch. She didn't get all my trails shoveled out before this new storm started....Will be plenty of snow shoveling this weekend....
My Christmas Toys were claimed at Pet Smart. I have a Raccon Skinz (The flat kind without stuffing. Long and flat...Boy can I zoomey with that 18" hanging from my yapper! It's so Cool! never had a toy like this one! I also have a new BoBo! Must be a Girl BoBo...It is Hot Pink! I love BoBo's of all kinds! A lady who raised doxies...invested the 1st. one. She is a Zillionare now!!!!!!! Cuz, even puppers that are not doxies... just love BoBo's!!!!!! I also have a couple big packages of Busybones and Greenies. (Gotta keep those toophers, nice and clean!)
Grandma gave me the Works after she finished cutting and wrapping our vension. I had my ears washed, eye drops, burshed my hair, teeth brushed with my special vanilla mint pup paste and my nails ground off with the little drill.... I was sssooo
Good! I had puppy biscuits for treats!!! Us puppers both just love the biscuits Gma made for us from a dogster recipe...They are Awesome!
Well,pals...better go! Gma still has some stuff to do before we call it a day and hit the sack! Chilly tonight! I'll be tucked in tight between Gma and Gpa.

I swear on all Four Paws, I was not a naughty doxie!!! So Grandma, How come Santa Paws didn't bring me any New Toys???
Grandma said, Santa Paws was overloaded with good stuff for puppers and purrs, far and wide. The sleigh started to sag, buckle and bow. Those eight tiny reindeer were struggling so.
He had to dump part of the load....Giving him a chance to distribute... Then Santa Paws would loop around,reclaim
the rest of the load.
So what happened to derail these back-up plans???? A big snow storm rolled across the prairie, Man! Closing him down! He looked in my house...Saw I had plenty..... Delivered to others who didn't have many.
He left a note for Grandma, you see.... Mazy's stuff is tagged "Just for Me." He left it with Pet Smart who had
storage to spare. And something extra special, cuz he cares....
So she made us our own peanutbutter cookies. I forgot about new toys with belly so full. I think, my belly started to jiggle and wiggle. Pawtastic those yummies, they were! I'd eat until
I explode!!!! But someone said, "just one! Your eyes are way too big for your tum!" Our dogster recipe is quite a Hit! We're sending them here and there and everywhere....
Tomorrow.... Grandma said, "she'll pick up my Pressies in the capitol city." I'll have new toys for New Year's Eve. Yippy!!!
Sounds like a Deal to me! The new storm is brewing and building right now. Meant to be here, come Wednesday, at sundown!!!!!
So when, I'm trapped inside for yet another snow storm....I'll have new toys... so I won't be bored!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!

What do, I do???? I'm running outta time! What do I ask Santa Paws for? I heard Gma say,"last chance Cupcake! Better get that Santa Paws list ready. If not, you're gonna miss the boat!"
What Boat? I thought, Santa Paws comes in a Sleigh???? I watch and watch...but, I Never saw a BOAT or a SLEIGH!!!! Oh yeah! I Never saw Rudolph,either! I've seen tons of Deer, but Never a Blinking Red Nose One!
Any suggestions pup and purr pals???? What did you ask, Santa Paws for?????? I did ask, Mr. Paws to bring Old Baby a New Softer bed. Then Precious could have Baby's old bed...since everytime Baby gets up and goes out: she comes back and that darn CAT! Precious is curled up in the middle of Baby's big pillow bed! Baby won't make her move....She just goes and lays on the entry rug. Content to just be inside, where it is warm.
Of course, sometimes I lay there too...My reason being, "I'm keeping it warmed up for Baby." Well, Gma just comes and gives Precious and I the boot! She says," you two have lots of places to curl up and lay. Baby doesn't.... We are to stay off her bed and out of her way.... Quit being pains in the hiney to the old gal. I don't think, Baby minds: we are the only excitement she is seeing these days! Now that, Precious and I play together. Chase each other and doing zoomies all over.
What was it, that I was doing??????
Oh Ya!!!! I was .....my list to:
Santa Paws, Santa Paws....
What do I put on my list?????????

OMD! The 1st. of two, Alberta Clippers arrived late yesterday. Blew and snowed all night! We have new snow everywhere! We don't even know. how many new inches we had??? Some drifting.... So lots of Deep new Piles! -8 at 5:30p.m. Burrr! Going to be a very,very Cold night!
Gpa pushed with farmhand to open things back up again... Both Gpa and Gma shoveled. Gma shoveled a whole hour to clean the patio off. Made me stay inside cuz it was -2 without the windchill. Phooey!
I was out 4 times today... Two quick potties. I followed Gpa for about 10 min. 2 different times. Gma has to keep telling Gpa, they have to make the decision when to bring me in! If, I have hunting on my mind.... I want to stay too long!!!!!
Gma tried for 3 winters to get me boots. All of them, either were too Big or too Small...I guess, this little doxie has weird paws????? Well, if they slow the hunting down...I'd jerk them off,anyway!
Took old Baby all day to get her business done. She is Not Happy with the weather! I offered her one of my potty pads... She refused.... Is she, Nuts or what????
Baby ate breakfast and supper. Refused dinner cuz, she couldn't make a poop... I picked off my toping on breakfast. Left most of the dry kibbles. I didn't like, not having a little gravy from Baby's soft food on my lunch. So, I was naughty and didn't eat it at all! Gma said, "No Treats,Cupcake!"
Well, I was ready and hungry at suppertime. I ate it all! I then sit by the entry door, to see if I can lick Baby's plate...
Sometimes, there is a lick or two there.... Sometimes, her plate is clean as a whistle!
Gma promised to get on the floor.... Play with me doxie style... Since, I don't have another young pupper to play with.
I like the games, Gma and I play.....So much Fun!
Well, I better head to the kitchen. Lay in my bed....Toast and roast awhile...The oven is on with a pasta something in there... Sure smells good! Going to be a very,very long winter!!!!!! Today,We did have bright sunshine. That is what fooled me into thinking is was another warm day of 38. Thursday was Awesome! Catch ya later, Mazy

Pup and purr pals just wanted to let you know: I've been strolling all over dogster looking at Everyone's Christmas and Holiday Pictures. This is my 1st. Christmas here at dogster and catster. I must say, the natural talent around here is abundant.
I'm starting to think, some of my pup and purr pals are professional models??????? Some of these Mommas, Poppas, Gmas, Gpas,Sissies and such: Must have degrees in Art???? Graphics???
Oh well, we don't care!!!! If they do or they don't! It's just so exciting to get to the puter! See all the wonderful new things! We hurry as fast as we can to clean up the supper and mess. Here we are again and it's almost bedtime!
Mazy is just Super Duper Fine! We've been doing as much looking as we can while here. We just haven't had enough time to be able to stop and comment on each friend's updates. Whether is it a new background, photos, diary entries, forum comment, group and game activities. We Truly enjoy each and every moment we steal away and hide at dogster....
Please forgive us....We are trying to see All we can while we are here. Promise to start commenting again as soon as Gma can get her poo-poo in a group! I miss my groups and games. The chatting with all my pals...
BTW- I did get to go hunting 4 times in last couple days. I think, I've found my Snow Paws! It was COLD but sunny and no wind! 6 above when I left and 1 above ... 30 minutes later!
Gma got snow in her boot and said, I looked cold...Made me come inside...There were hot towels waiting in the dryer! Yeah!
Gma sure is getting to be a wussie! Hope the Doc, knows what's wrong with her leg????
Thank you everyone for all the prayers for old Baby and Gma,too. We appreciate each and everyone of them. Thank you for all the pressies and wonderful comments on our pages.
Till we return........Let's ZZZZooooommmmiiiieeeeee for TREATS!!!!! Gma is mailing some pup treat recipes to a friend with a Westie named cEcE. We think her Momma will get some baked before our Gma does....
Kisses to All, Mazy

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to ALL the pups and purrs.
Here on the ND Prairie it is Snowing Again! Since noon, it has snowed about 4". Only a gentle breeze today. Very large flakes like one sees in the old Holiday movies. Very Pretty! A big mess to move all that stuff on a ranch. Gpa's loader tractor is waiting for parts. Gpa is feeding with the old farmhand. Gets the job done, but Gpa has no protection from the elements. You can push a little snow with it, but not move snow like he does with the loader tractor. If the snow doesn't stop soon. He will have to have a neighbor come plow some snow out of the gates to corrals. Open us up around the house and down the 1/4 mile driveway.
I was out with Gma 3 times today. I ran over to the car garage with her. She was trying to figure out why the remote car starter didn't work. Finally figured out what we were doing wrong! Sure Glad! Gma didn't want to have to take the new car back to the dealer. Still kinda strange the new car doing everything but load and unload the people. We find it very Funny when it is winter: You start the car and the car says,"Possible Ice, Drive with Care!" Ha Ha!!!! OMD, as if we are going out on the road to race the teenagers....
Today, I had all my grooming done. Brushed teeth,ear wash,eye drops, brushed me and ground my nails down. I was a Perfect Little Angel! My reward was a dental greenie....Yummy! I'm trying to be extra good.... I heard they are going shopping soon. I heard Gma say she wanted to go shop for toys and maybe some other things. I have tons of toys but Doxies who live where there is Real Winter get bored without variety... Gma's says, I've never done all the many naughty things young puppers do when bored.... I guess, she works hard to see I am not bored!
I saw on TV some pawsome new toys.... I 'd like some new things to play with this winter. I don't play much with my toys from late spring until it is pretty cold.
Maybe, I should as Santa for a snow suacer like the grandkids have? Gma could pull me through the deep snow. I rode in the wagon with the grandkids and that was FUN!
Gma is going to try and give Gpa his 1st. puter lesson tonight. This will be Funny to watch...Gma said, "Gpa has to learn to turn the puter on and off. He has to learn how to do a search. How to find his farmsites." Well, I'll let you know how it goes.
Gma printed a big list of pupper treat recipes so she can make us some. I think we are trying that over the weekend. All the recipes sound so delicious. Gma has all the stuff in her pantry.(Her children call the pantry a mini 7-11 store. They robbed it regularly, when they were in college.)
I think we are going to use the cookie cutters. I like the star and the heart cutters. They will look like Christmas cookies. Do you think,Santa's reindeer will eat apple pupper cookies???? I'd leave a plate and water by our door on Christmas Eve.
We've been listening to holiday music all day while we did our work. The music was a good distraction from the heavy snow. I did spend some time hanging on the back of the loveseat. I was scoping for cottontails in the liliac bushes. Some of my pals commented on Precious and I laying on the loveseat together.
Yep, you're right...Precious is a Big cat! She is much larger than I am. She out wieghs me, she is taller and longer,too!
I think, we better play harder, so she doesn't get too fat! We have a new game. When Gma can't find her...she says, Mazy find Precious.... I sniff her right out! She hasn't Fooled me yet!
I'm not sure Precious likes the game? I think, the nose exercise is just Terrific!!!!
Catch ya later, Mazy
