Well, the sausage is made for another year. 200 lbs. made in one day for 3 families. Sausage day was an awful weather day....We awoke to -25! It was a Good day for holding down the fort...Us furs sure didn't want to go outside in that! Gpa came home in the afternoon to turn off stocktank and let Old Baby out to potty. I just used my pads, like any other time.....
The meat sure smelled wonderful when they hauled the couple boxes into the house. Gma and Gpa made 50 like last year. It's plenty when they eat beef,pork,chicken,turkey and all kinds of fish too. Gma gave us some extra treats when they arrived home. I thought, she'd cook some sausage for us???? She said, too spicy for you girls...
Sunday, it was almost 30 above.... It was a 50 degree change from Saturday.... I was outside about 2 hours. Today, it is in the 20's and sunny. Pretty windy so feels cold... I still went out 2 times for about 1 hour of exercise.
When I came in, Gma said: Grooming Time! She had the gate in the kitchen closed and I couldn't run to my cave! She was going to do grooming yesterday. I was in the living room laying in the sun by the picture window. I couldn't see her...but, I heard her open the ice cream pail with All my Stuff in it...Zoom, like lightening...I flew under my rocking chair and curled up...(this is what they call my cave or clubhouse)....
I know, they can't get me out from under there..... HeHe!!! I gotta out of the Grooming! However, Gma said, "No Grooming,No Greenie!" I didn't get my, Treat!!!!! After awhile..Gma said, she was to tired to do it now.....so we skipped it! Today, she was ready when Gpa brought me back to the house....
I was Very Good! I really wanted that, Greenie! I closed my eyes while she ground off my nails. Cuz, I didn't look and wiggle... it was all over in a minute!!!! She brushed me, did eye and ear drops.....I took my greenie and ate it on the living carpet...Then, I licked the new carpet to make sure I didn't leave any crumbs! After all, I was just using my manners...Gma had just vacuumed the whole house.
I wanted to thank my pals that signed my new guestbook.... I just love to look at Everyone's picture .... So, if you didn't see my guestbook...please,drop by and sign it....
This afternoon all us furs are trying to catch up with our diaries... check out our furpals pics and diaries. Trying to make a big loop to visit our groups between now and bedtime.
Everyone in our family is real burnt out on Winter!!!! Tonight our next Cold front blows in on us....We are all so ready for warmer days and melting snow...Any sign of Green !!!! We have alot of snow to melt before we will see anything green around here.... BTW-As of Saturday...we now have rural mail again. They plowed the blocked roads north of us, so mailman can follow the assigned route for delivery.
Well...I gotta go! Gpa came in to rest a little while and have a snack.... If he snacks, I usually have a snack....I roll those adorable brown eyes...then add, the I'm so hungry look!

Where is Everyone? Sniffing you out......
I'm scurrying around dogster trying to find out what All my furpals have been doing???? I'm using my doxie nose to sniff out: All new photos,diary entries, birthdays and special events. My friend, Ben turned a Big 4 Today...He's just a little older than I am. My friend, Lucy has some glamour pics
to swoon over....
Sorry fellas, I heard she was taken...My friend, Nutty sent me a new picture of guess who? Yep, it's me!!!! All dressed for a party! A face mask with feathers that tickle my nosie....My friend, Abby has her garden seeds bought! Already???? Is she going to try Snowbank farming??????
Yep, I've been looking at the seed magazines. I have about 2 weeks and order must be in. (If, we wanna save 50% on the cost) Of course, we want to Save...means more treats and toys for ME!
I'm sure, I won't catch up this weekend. Cuz, Gma puts the Gma lockie on Puter, when she is gone! Gma and Gpa are making sausage All day tomorrow with 4 other friends. 3 families have 200 lbs. of sausage to grind,mix,season and stuff into casings. Squeeze 'em into vac bags and sucks the air out.
I remember last year, they left early and it was past bedtime when they came home. They put All the Awesome smelling sausage into the Freezer box. What was up with that????? We had to guard the place for hours and hours....No cooked suasage for a Reward???? No Puter left on for me to play.... while they are gone?????
I'll be 4 in July... When do you think, Gma will take the Gma lockie, off the Puter??????? I mean, really... I could make a long list of who did what,where and when: if, she'd just leave the puter on for me!!!! She says, Nope! No Puter, little cupcake....NOT when, I'm not here to watch you..... Phooey,sometimes, it's tough being a pupper!
I did get outside briefly, 2 times today. The high was about 7 without the windchill. It was -15 last night. (raw temperature without the windchill) They left at 6 p.m. and made their 50 mile drive to do their shopping. Took all evening to get there, have supper, shop, load and drive back. Another 2 hrs. before Gma had everything put away and settled into her PJ's.
The Sun was shining today....Always makes the day feel better than it is....Just having Mr. Sunshine show up for work! Made a high of 7 degrees. I ran and ran and ran...then, I ran and ZZZZOOOOOOOOMMMMMIIIEEEEDDDD thru the house.... to tell Gma how Cold it was outside!!!!!
Our kitchen was very toasty today. Gma baked buns, banana bread and pumpkin bread. Then she made a big pot of vegetable beef soup. We had tons of dirty dishes and pans. I volunteered to help wash.... She thought, she could do it faster than I could!
Oh give me a break! I have one of the fastest tongues on the Prairie!
I did get a taste of the fruit bread after I ate my lunch. I had a teaspoon of Old Baby's veal with my turkey rice kibbles. It was Pawsome! I know, we have vension with our supper... Yummy! I'd better get going... Almost time for my supper. I was promised a big indoor play session after supper...
I'll see ya pals, as soon as I can chew this Gma lockie off the Puter! Why did she use such a Big Lock????? Baby, can't help...
She has senior,senior toophers! Not sure how many of those she has???? She won't let anyone look at her toophers! I think, it's cuz, she thinks Gma will get her a toothbrush like mine...
See ya pals, Mazy

Hey Pals- I have the BEST news EVER! Last week, when the temperatures soared... We had melting and dripping going on everywhere! Made some messes and things were pretty sloppy! I ended up with a full tubbie! I LOVE the hairdryer.... I had so much FUN getting really piggy outside....HeHe
The Big News is: The SNOW finally has a Crust on it! Boy,boy! Those bunnies are in Big Trouble, Now! I can follow them into the shelterbelt. (FYI, you city puppers) A shelterbelt is an established set of trees....ours planted many,many decades ago. They hold the wind back, as well as trap alot of the snow.....
Now, I can scoot across snowbanks that are 3 to 5 deep...I DON'T SINK DOWN! Those bunnies were just shell shocked! They think, I have found some magic snowshoes.....The race is on!
I caught a bunny on Saturday. Gpa heard him squeal! He told me "Release" I had to let him go.... Gpa is my hunting buddy... I can't make him, mad! I wouldn't have anyone to hunt with when it is cold.... Gma always went with me... She's been having a very hard time with the cold this winter. Gpa walks around and does odd chores, while I hunt.
Sunday was the worst day after the nice weather. It was so windy and -25.... I ran to the stocktank with Gpa for him to shut the water off. I ran back to the house.... Maybe, I lasted 5 minutes?????? Gma met me at the door with a Hot towel....
So, Gma and I played hide-n-seek with several of my toys. I found them all! My sniffer is 5 stars! We played fetch and return.... Then, my favorite! I have it...you get it! I know, I can play Gma out..... but really, I don't have any other little furs to play with... Precious likes to start stuff. Gets me all excited and ready to romp...Then she just quits! What am I suppose to do?????
Once Spring comes...Gma and I are outside about 75% of the time. So we both get plenty of fresh air and exercise. In fact, I have even been known to take a nap or two... I can't hardly wait for spring to come. Have all the snow melt and go away.
Help Gma dig in her flowers, rake leaves and pick up sticks.I love digging up some earth wormers.....Then Gma put them on the fishing pole! I like the lake....Still learning to swim....
She's been looking at seeds in a magazine. She says, we are going to raise alot of our vegetables. (She used to have a big garden,long before I came along) I don't know what a big garden is????? Is this going to cut into my "ME TIME?" She said, my job will be: keep bunnies and gophers out of our vegetables!
Rodent patrol! This assignment, I understand!!! I'm going to chase,chase and chase some more ...... This will be just heaven!
Then, I get to eat the vegetables, too....Yippy!!!

Hi there pals- February has been filled with lots of FUN stuff! I've been having a BLAST! Sending stuff to my Secret Cupid. Receiving stuff from my Secret Cupid! Just a Pawsome Time! I've never had Valentine's before.... I just LOVE it! I also had mail from alot of pals. Sure helped take my mind off the bitter cold and snowy stretches.
We had tons of FUN trying to keep up with everyone's birthdays, pressies,photos,diary entries and new happenigs. Playing games in our groups. Chattering around with our pals. Sure has been a Wonderful distraction from the stretches of Ucky weather, way up north. We tried real hard NOT to miss anyone's important day... We Hope, we didn't...but very hard to be sure of that???
Gma came home! She was Off caring for the grandkids. Their parents were on vacation in Mexico! We were freezin' our hineys here! She had to stay at their house, so they could go to school.
She left me Home to care for Gpa and Baby. Keep Precious out of trouble. She also said, it was a TEST...See, how I'd do with Gpa caring for me for several days. Cuz, Grandma has elderly parents and they live very far away. She wanted to know, if she traveled there...would I be okay????
Gpa and I did just FINE! We had a Blast! I was glad to see Gma but Gpa let's me do stuff.... Gma doesn't let me do...SHHH.... don't tell, Gma!
BTW- The human siblings came back from vacation and it turned Nice! Temperatures shot up into the 40's. Bunny hunting has been great...Now we have some slushy around the place. Don't worry still plenty of snow pack on the ground! Now I have some Tubby after being outside. I come back with gritty stuff...
Made some new furpals around dogster this month. This is always a Blast! Been helping to add some new things to Christian Dogs and Cats. Takes alot of time with the behind the scenes stuff for any group....
Heard Gma say, she has a Valentine surprise for me! I wonder what it is???? Maybe a new BOBO??? They are my all time favorite toys... I put some new pictures on my pages. Gma has a bunch in the camera of All the Snow around here. Some of me, walking the huge Snowbanks...Just need an afternoon to dig them out of the camera....
Gotta Zoom! I promised to Help Gma with the Special Supper for Gpa tonight.... It's grilled chicken breasts...Yippy! A little chicken to go with my vension... Happy Valentine's Day! I loves you all!!!! Kisses, Mazy

My Grandma packed a bunch of clothes, some food, coffee and stuff on Sunday.... Gma and Gpa both went outside....Didn't let me go along???? Gpa came back in a few minutes......Gma didn't??? Where did my Gma go????????
She told me, "I had to stay home and look after Old Baby!" (What, watch her sleep????) "Not let Precious, counter surf or sun bathe on the dining table." (I can pull her off the table...cuz, I can get up there too! How am I suppose to get her off the kitchen counters??? My leggers aren't long enough!)
I was also suppose to keep an eye on Gpa! Gma said, "if I was here, he'd have to come to the house for breaks....get outta of the cold awhile."
Since Gma left it has gotten much colder... When this Cold, there is No bunny hunting...Windy today....suppose to be -35 with windchill. Sun is shining....looks like a hunting day to me!
I lay on the loveseats,Gma's rocker and I look out the windows, but I don't see any Gma coming!!! Where is my Gma???? Who took my Gma????? If, she isn't home soon.... I think, I'm gonna have to use my Sniffer and Hunt my Gma down!!!!! I've never been away from my Gma like this...She sure better bring me something Very Special for watching over everyone!!! Jeez, I would have rather went riding in the car with Gma...There was lots of ice,cold,blowing snow on Sunday...where would my Gma go in weather like that???? She doesn't drive much in the winter...
Somethin' else, that is Strange.....My Gma hasn't called on the dingie-ling????? Was she afraid, I'd not put kisses on the phone?? Like I do for Great Grandma and Momma Shawna???? (they always talk to me on the phone....)HUMMMMM! There better be some really good treaties for All this Babysitting, I'm stuck doing!
Well, if any of you furs see my Gma...you tell her to get her hiney home and A.S.A.P.!!!! Gpa is Pawtastic ... but there are things that just Gma and I do....I had to sneak onto the Puter!
Put a bulletin out... Wanted : One Prairie Gma Sent Home!
Back to watching out the window...Maybe, she'll show up soon???

By Noon today, the temperature will have went from -50 to +30 in 24 hrs. This is insanity, even for the Prairie.... I've been having cases of cabin's fever....
Gma took me with her to town... It was cold -25 when we went. We had food,survival kit,water,blankets,car phone and our hiney warmers in the new car.... Gma pulled a Sneaky on me!
Took me to the Vet for declaw and nail trim.... Then, she left me there while she went for haircut. OMD! I was not happy with her!(She thought, I'd sit and cry the whole time...) I didn't...
I huddled in my crate and was Quiet as a Mouse...until she came back...Then, did I let her have it! I cried,wailed,screeches and doxie howled..... GET ME OUTTA THIS CRATE AND THE FUR DOC'S OFFICE A.S.A.P.
Enjoy the treaties! I Love you all! Thank HQ for choosing me as one of the Daily Diary Picks....Anyone found some Green Grassies to send me??? Old Baby---is still mumbling about needing to see Green Grassies....I'm trying to find her some! I dug holes in the snow banks... but no green grasses there! Help me out... Who has Grassies????

I'm having so much Fun in one of my groups.... We are playing Secret Cupid! We were matched up with a secret pal.... We are sending our pals: poems,riddles,pictures,rosies,cards and all kinds of Cool stuff...Let me tell ya: with so many areas having such miserable winter weather... I'm thinking this game is going to save alot of SaNiTy!
My Gma had a real Tough week! As in, we want to Hiberate until someone can show us a blade of Green Grass....
The moments that we steal away to dogster/catster Keep us from developing a very short fuse!
Warmed up to defrosting temperatures 4 days this week. Created a whole new set of problems. Major ice to break off the roof and rain gutters. Shovel roofs and steps. Now shoveling around the house foundation. (Don't want water in the house!) The 4 days gave us a leak in the living room above our front door....
Gma is not a Happy Camper! Those walls were redone just a few years ago.....
To top it off, the snow made a hiefer barn roof collasp. Another old building is now Toast! It was old, but useable....
The rural mail will not be delivered to us, until sometime in the spring. You want your mail??? It's a 10 mile drive to go to post office and claim it.
On the Upside.... Gpa has one of his tractors repaired and doing the feeding with it again. The other tractor has a few hours of work left on it.
I stole a stuffed lamb out of the upstairs today.... Gma said,
"I could keep it!" It is Bigger than I am! A mouth full, when I run, trying to drag it along.... I guess, it used to belong to Kenzie our granddaughter, when she was a baby. It's ALL MINE now! A early Valentine! I found it ! I'm keepin' it!
I'd better go...It's time for my supper!!!!!
Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, Everyone! January is almost over and February is coming real soon! I'm so excited about Valentine's Day....cuz, somewhere out there,I have a Secret Valentine....
Whoever, sent me those beautiful Red Roses....I was SSSSSOOOOO surprised! I just LOVE them,so very much!!!!!!!
This is my 1st. year on dogster....I've been learning the in's and out's of each calendar holiday..... Something new comes with each new Holiday.... This is really COOL, when we are struggling through such a hard winter. Sure Helps to have something to look forward to with so much ugly weather. I've spent more days inside this winter, than the 4 winters, I've been on this earth. Phooey!
Gma said, "since we gobbled up those beef-peanutbutter dogster treaties, she made us....like we are Never Fed.... she'll make us some more treaties just for Valentine's Day..." Jackpot!!!"
She's thawing meat right now to make beef jerky in her dehydrator for Great Grandma and Great Grandpa. I'm trying to talk her into making Baby and I some jerky, too....I heard her say, "she's baking more Ginger Snaps to send to Great-Grandma." I'll keep ya posted...
Gma caught Precious on the dining room table drinking out of her water glass.... I sat in my bed giggling away! I saw her coming down the hallway! That darn cat,better get her hearing checked! She's always getting caught making mischief....HeHe!
Serves her right, she's always trying to get me into trouble with a capitol "T"! Special Treat this past week. Gma cooked some Alaskan Halibut.... Yummy! It was a huge 9x13 pan full. Such big packages brought to us. So, Gma and Gpa shared their fish with us furs...Baked...very healthy for all of us....
I chased 6 bunnies this past week.... Decent temperatures 2 days of the whole week. ...Over a 100 feet of our quarter mile driveway is completely blocked tonight from the southwest wind. It was wide open when they came home last night with All the supplies.... Can you believe it? I checked every single bag...There was NOT 1 single NEW Toy in all that mess...Oodles of kitties foods for the barn kitties....NO TOYS!
Well, I'd better finish up here.... My Grandma is dragging tonight. I'm gonna have to get her ready for bed. Then snuggle up, make her owwies feel better. Tomorrow is Monday. We have a very long busy day ahead of us. Poor Gma! The grandkids, ages 6 and 9 badly beat her in 2 games of Dominoes this afternoon...
NEWS FLASH!!!!!!Now,I have a Guestbook on my pages..... Will you stop by and say "HI"?????? Thanks, Kirk Puppers and Momma Shawna for the beautiful guestbook.... Thanks, Felix and Daddy Jim for my Pawtastic Valentine Photo.
Have an Awesome and Pawsome Week! I'll be catching up with ya very soon.... Kisses, Mazy

OMD!!!! I'm up extra early this morning. Gma and I jumped into our chores. It has warmed up a little...so now it is Snowing, again! Just keeps coming!
We came to Puter to read our mails. Scurried over to dogster, see what our furpals are All up too...Outta the Blue! No Internet.... OMD! What will we do??????
We let the new PC run diagnostics.... Or somethin' like that....
Then Gma knew we were not receiving our signal. Better than sitting here, guessing What's UP????? This is kinda Cool! We checked our TV. It was having an issue, too. We watched news this morning. We followed the instructions for re-setting our router and net connection. This of course, didn't help!!!! Cuz, it was a Problem with our provider.... We sure know, whatever it was...They fixed it FAST! We were only Down about 30 minutes.
Gma was getting bent outta of shape.... When it Snows and it's Yucky cold...She needs the Puter to NOT feel cut-off from the World! I NEEDZ's it TOO!!!! I have to know what my pals are doing....No Sunshine,today! Good day to surf around, look up as many pals, as I can....Sure hope there weather is better than mine....
Gpa should be done feeding cattle soon. We're having brunch today. Scrambled eggs,bacon,hashbrowns and whole wheat english muffins.... Gma makes extra eggies so Baby and I can have some,too!
Well, I'll be back.....Off to supervise brunch! BTW- We baked a cake this morning....Yippy! It is a white one... Guess, who will have some cake in the next couple days????? Reward for letting the bunny go yesterday....How can I work this into a regular thing??????

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....
