Thanksgiving was Terrific! The turkey was so yummy! Still don't understand why they wouldn't share the potatoes,dressing and gravy??? Roasted turkey breast with no skin,no fat.... Healthy!
The grandkids played with me. There was lots of noise in the house all day long with 7 people. (Two of them under the age of 8.) We played WII sport resort on the TV, Dominoes, Computer games, watched Alvin Chipmunk Movie, a little football, some visiting..........tons of Eating! Here Gma is worried about how much I eat at each meal... Well, that old gal better watch her waistline! She ate from the time she started the coffee until she went to bed last night! No wonder she didn't get up during the night! She was in a Carbohydrate OverDose compounded by a Sugar Overload!
Slept in until 9 a.m. The kids and grandkids were back at our house a little after 9. Melissa dumped everyone and went off shopping. We played more WII,PC games,watched movies,etc. We went to town and picked up 2 take out pizzas to feed everyone lunch. Gma was tired and didn't have to cook! Uncle Troy was able to ride in Gma's new car and test the hiney warmers. I jumped all over the car like a Mexican Jumping Bean!(Right after, Gma told son, what a good traveler I was) Darn, he was sitting in my seat, on my hiney warmer!!!!!
Gma is just pooped again tonight! Tomorrow they have to go to Melissa's house. An early birthday party for McKenzie,as well as early Christmas from Uncle Troy. Baby and I are staying home to rest.... We are pooped out from all this extra excitement and playing!
Today the temp. made 33. I was able to go hunting with Gpa for about 40 min., without my coat. 1st. nicer day in over a week. No wind and snow was slushing a little. I could check out the hay bales. I was starting to get a BAD case of cabin fever... Gma took some snow pics of me. Share them soon. Hope the wind, severe cold. stay away a little while. If not, it's going to be a very long winter!

Hi there all my dear furpals- Just zoomed into the puter room to say,"Happy,Happy Thanksgiving."
Grandma was up in the dark, messing in the kitchen. I tried to stay snuggled into our big queen size bed. I heard all kinds of noises but I sure didn't smell anything! Finally, my curiousity got the best of me.
I stumbled out to the kitchen with sleepies still in my eyes. I popped onto the heat vent to stay warm. OMD! The sun isn't even up! What is this crazy woman, doing? Grandpa isn't up and he always gets up first!
Before I knew it, she snatched me up, put my coat on, took me outside! What a shock, that was! The wind was blowing, it was
-7 degrees. I hurried and pottied. I beat it back inside. I had my breakfast done before 7. I usually eat breakfast about 9 in the winter time....
I went off and took a NAP... and now, I'm on my way back to the kitchen. Toasty there with oven on. The smells are driving me crazy! Grandma hasn't dropped a crumb of anything! I wonder how long until dinner time? I know, I'm staying here in the kitchen where the food is! Sooner or later, something will be dropped?
I know, the grandkiddies are coming...JACKPOT! They never clean their plates. I'm sure to have something good to eat... Different from my usual lunch. I can hardly wait!!!!
Fill ya in later, on how the day goes.... I'm thinking Grandma will need a Nap. I heard something, about Dominoes this afternoon. I sit on Gma's lap and help her keep track of her tiles. Both the grandkids recently learned how to play. This will be Fun! Sure the guys will need a little football time.
Hey, did you pals see that Big Snoopy in the parade? He was the biggest hound dog, I ever saw....Huggies to All, Mazy

Hi Furpals.....Burrrrrrr, it's cold way up North! Snowed off and on all weekend. Dropped to 3 last night. It was -5 with windchill today. Snowed off and on all day. We now have about 6" on the ground.
I put on my suede wool lined coat and went out with Gma. She was shoveling the steps and patio. She didn't want Old Baby to slip on the steps and fall down.
I was suppose to be walking around getting some fresh air! But really, I just wasn't interested in FRESH AIR! It was just Too fresh out there.....I had a Big case of Frosty Paws real fast!
I used my cuuutttie pie, drown in my eyes look and Gma let me back inside. Yeah! I watched it snow from the back of the loveseat in the Sunroom. I just don't have my Snow Paws,yet!
The snow would be fine, if it were about 30 outside. I'd be ready to go Rabbit Hunting in the hay bales..... Just too Cold!
Look at my pics...I have a bunch of new ones. I posted my pupper pal, Copper's picture. It's just so Cool! He's teaching that Turkey to Dance....Just too Funny! (so he won't end up in the oven on Thanksgiving Day!) Dance Turkey,Dance!!!!!!!
BTW- Precious has succeeded in Moving Totally and Completely into MY House! Did anyone ask me, if I wanted to share my House with her????????? Then they put her food on top of the deep freeze...so I can't get any! (said, it isn't good for me..I can smell it up there. I like cat food!) I guess, she's staying.....
2 Rules and we will get along Fine!!!
1. Stay out of my little bed in the kitchen.
2. Do not, under any circumstances get into the office chair! It belongs to Me! I share it with Gma and only Gma! (good thing, she is little or I wouldn't share with her,either!)

Monday started out like a regular day. I grabbed my coat, out to potty, in for breakfast. I sat on the kitchen heat vent to warm my hiney.
G-ma was zooming around doing household chores. She made some southwestern chicken tortilla soup for lunch. She cooked a new batch of vension for me. I can always count on meat for me...
She made several phone calls. Told me at lunch time we were going to town. Yippy, I get to go for a ride…
Gray, overcast, chilly, a few spits of snow, but nothing serious. Not enough to even stick on the ground. The kinda day where you just stay busy so you don’t notice the nasty weather. A good day to go to town for errands. I’m slowly getting used to days without sunshine.
The 1st. 4 stops, I had to wait in the car. G-ma got a flu shot, boxes at the post office, sale items at the grocery store, her medicine at the drug store. I surely wasn’t happy that I couldn’t go into these places!
However, I waited patiently for G-ma to come back. I was so happy when she was done….
However, I wish I’d been left in the car at the Vet Clinic. I thought, we were stopping just to get Precious a distemper shot to bring home. My hiney has been bugging me. I was trying to wash it off all the time. I usually don’t do this. G-ma called made me an appointment. She thought I had anal gland problem. I didn’t know that I had an appointment. She tricked me!!!!!!!
I didn’t know what a-glands were, until I left the Vet. I know where the anals are now! The Vet tech put her finger up my hiney! Said, she was checking. Then she had to do it again, to clean those anals!!!
I cried and cried…. Do you know how little my pooper is?????
I raced to the door to get out of there. To think, G-ma paid them to do that to me! G-ma was a traitor, cuz she held me! WORST day of my Life! She didn’t even have a treat to give me, either! I stomped out!
When we arrived home, I had mail! A package from my pupper pal Jax’s. I won 2nd. Place in a Halloween photo contest in our Black and Tan group. G-ma opened the box for me and put it on the floor. G-pa said, “Wow Jackpot!” I just went crazy over all the nice toys in the box. A squeaky toy, rubber chew toys, balls, a bone to clean my teeth and a peanut butter & yogurt pupper treat.. I was so surprised!
I was so Happy! I played all evening with the toys and the box they came in. I totally Forgot about my Hiney!
I took the tooth cleaning bone to bed with me. They sat the box on the counter in the kitchen at bedtime. I wouldn’t quit squeaking the pumpkin toy. This was the BEST, most exciting evening EVER!
G-ma took pictures of me playing with the toys. ( We will put them up as soon as we can.) Thank you so much Jax’s and Momma Joan.
We’ve been ever so busy here with lots of baking for the holidays. Thanksgiving is only a week away. Grandkids will be here…..Yeah!
G-ma baked most of the day...She took me out hunting for an hour. I found squirrels in the shelter belt. I tried to climb the big old trees. They just chattered and laughed at me! Way up in the top of those old trees. I just couldn't get up there!
So then, we went down to the hay yard...I snoped in All the big bale piles. I flushed a cottontail out of there....I chased him all over the place.
G-ma made me come in, cuz her hands were getting cold. She had gloves on too...I came in and took a nap. She went back to cooking. Made a triple back of chex-mix. She did give me a taste of ginger snap cookie. She bakes and bakes,then packs it up and into the big chest freezer. What's up with that??????????
Hugs and Kisses, Mazy

Under-Dog or Mighty-Mouse???? Maybe, Peter Pan???? I CAN
FLY like the Prairie Wind! Here’s was happened my pupper pals.
Last night after dark, G-ma took me out into the fenced in front yard. Hoping, I was ready to potty. We have two big flood lights on that side of the house. There for when, it is very dark and scary outside.
I headed down to the south end of the yard. My hound nose on the ground. Doing my favorite thing, just sniffing, sniffing along.
Do you know? If you are a doxie and you’re sniffing along, you CAN NOT see a thing. This little doxie’s eyes kick out, when the nose kicks in. My people say, I’m Blind as a BAT!!! (What’s a BAT?)
All at once, there was loud hissing noise. The rattle of metal fence, as a cat baled over into the lilacs bushes. It was Master Fluffer and he was sound asleep between the Willow tree trunk and the fence. I scared the pee-pee out of him. I was just jumping along…. He scared me, too! I was so shocked and confused. I went into my defensive mode. I yapped my little head off. Going potty was now completely out of the question!
A matter of seconds and I flew into action. If, that cat could climb the fence, so could I! You would have thought there was wind current under my hinny! One major leap and I was airborne!
I flew into the ‘BIG Y’ of the willow tree… Now, what?????
G-ma jumped to her feet. Ran to the tree and grabbed me.
Hey! What are ya doing??? I had everything under control ! I just hadn’t decided what step 2 was… G-ma said, “Angel Foxie must have given me a little angel dust to help me land in the tree.”
You see, Foxie jumped into that same “Y” all the Time. Her step 2 was to jump to the rail of the fence. Sit on the pole running across the 4 ft. fence. One big leap and she would be over the fence. She never went anywhere, once she had her freedom…
Took G-ma a long time to figure out how she got out of the front yard. Finally, she caught her in the act a few times. She made it perfectly clear that she would not be fenced in….
G-ma said, “No way little cupcake! We are not going to have you climbing the tree, too!” Foxie’s leggers were way longer than mine. So I guess, if I want to stay out of trouble with G-ma: I’d better not be trying my Under-Dog or Mighty-Mouse flying trick, again! G-pa, thought I was ever so smart and funny!
Now that I can Fly!!! Maybe G-ma, will stop telling people I jump like PePe LaPhew... Ya know the stinky skunk in the cartoons... She says, that's how I look! When I jump in tall prairie grasses. What is a short legged doxie going do to cover the ground quickly? Jump and bounce with all fours off the ground. It's my way and it works!!!!
Makes sense to me!!!

Hi purrs and pupper pals. I just can't Beleive it! The Rotties and Notties, Chose ME!!! The little mini-doxie of 9 ish pounds to reign over those Big,Big Guys and Gals. Ruler of the Week for October 31 to Nov 6th.
Angel Spooky provided me the most beautiful Crown. Now the Princess of the Ponderosa has a real crown.... Bunny provided me, a stack of Bed Bumpers. These are to put on my THRONE....
A shrimpy little Ruler SHOULD NOT have to LOOK UP at so many of her Royal Subjects?????
Bunny took care of my tiny, little problem.... After all, I need to hold Court with ALL the ROTTIES and NOTTIES.... We are having the BEST time answering their questions...
Coming up with FUN decrees for ALL the Subjects. 1st. Decree was All subjects must be given their Favorite Treat sometime this week...
I think, a decree for all of DOGSTER!!! I Decree that, All purrs and puppers should be given their Favorite Treat this Week: whether they are a member of Rotties Rule or not!!!!! A Way to Help me Celebrate....
Being a Ruler is Very Hard Work! I better go, I have a very long list of duties to fulfill. There is so very little time to do it.
BTW- Grandma bought a new car. There are hiney warmers in the car. I loved my 1st. ride. I think, the hiney warmers are just what a Princess on the Prairie should have.... I even can control the temperature just on my side of the car. It's Awesome!
Mazy waves, throws kisses and hugs as she leaves.....May God Bless Each and Every Home.

Day 2 of the 1st. Snow storm of the 2010-2011 season.....
Wind has varied from 20 MPH to over 60 MPH. Crazy,hun??????? Rained 1st., then changed to snow. Dropped down to 30 ish last night. Wind Blew big time, all night long.!!! I BARKED and BARKED...I really tried to scare the wind away...Didn't work!So I settled into the middle of the bed with my velour blanket and drifted off to stardust land.....
Yesterday, I would just poke my nose out the door of the cattle room. I wasn't going out! What crazy doxie looks for a poo spot in 60 mph wind??? Not me! That's what my double training is for! I just used my potty stations. Spent alot of the day looking out the window. We had a combo of rain and snow all day. By evening the ground was All White Stuff!
I snuggled alot and toasted myself on the heat register. G-ma got down on the floor after supper and played with me. We drug out dozens of toys. Scattered them all over the house by bedtime. I ran my Indy 500 lap course for a good hour. The course is down the hallway, through the bedroom, into the bathroom,to the living room and down to the office bedroom.The last part of the loop is a pit stop in the laundry room. Followed by Zooming through the kitchen into the entry and out to the sunroom.... A gal has gotta get her exercise.... Whether it is inside or outside or Both!
Today, G-ma grabbed me out of the big bed, threw my coat on me. I ran off the patio and made a big yellow hole in the snow.
I zipped in to be toweled and ate my breakfast. Wind was still blowing with fine snow. The high temperature for today was 32. Just warm enough to make this wet snow very slushy!
G-ma decided to shovel the back steps and patio. She made Baby, Precious and I join her for some fresh air. I got tired of watching so decided to start snoping around the yard. I realized pretty soon, I was very comfy in my suede pile lined coat. Then I didn't want to go inside....
I thought, since there is SNOW... it is now time to Hunt the Haybales! I wanted G-ma to take me to the bale yard. She had enough with the shoveling. I didn't realize how bad the wind was away from the house yard. We came in and had lunch. I took a nap on the back of G-ma's glider rocker. Where I could watch the weather through the window.
We cooked and cleaned. G-ma decided an ugly day was a good time to do an ugly job! She washed the kitchen ceiling with the mop! This wasn't on our list... She changed the flourscent light bulbs and washed the fixture. Then she washed the ceiling by the gas stove. One thing led to another... the ceiling is done,now.
This afternoon, she ask if I wanted to go outside???? She had to come back and ditch the heavy duty snow boots for the hiking boots. She took me into the shelter belt where we had a wind break.... I jumped over fallen trees. I crawled under trees. I sniffed here and there and everywhere... I couldn't find one single cottontail rabbit! We stayed for 30 minutes.
I was also outside with G-pa for 15 min. So, I made 90 min. of outside time. I laid on the G-ma's hot coat,towels and gloves after we dryed them. I think, I have my Snow Paws back again????? Old Baby made snow angels today! We were so surprised! I think, she was really just scratching her back...the angels were an extra plus.... As I was saying: my Snow Paws are Back!
What other choice, do I have? This will melt, but more will come! By the weekend temperatures are to be in the high 40's.
Suppose to be 17 tonight. So, this will be our hard freeze....
I've decided since I'm a big girl of 3.... I no longer hate my sweaters and coats! Now, I don't want to take them off when inside.... G-ma said, "I'm a crazy little doxie!"
BTW- G-ma, let Precious spend alot of today inside with Baby and I. I sure hope she doesn't think, I'm sharing the Big Bed with her??????
G-ma is looking at a new car with leather and hinnie warmers! OMD! Hinnie warmers! I'll just love that.... I sure hope she decides to buy that car. She says, I'll be able to see out the window better,too! Phone just rang.... a furpal calling...gotta go! Catch ya later! Kissies, Mazy

October is almost shot! Where did it go? Our Time just Zooms by!
We are always busy doing something.... Not much laying around done here.
I supervised another day of raking. Believe it or not! If, weather allows us... We really need to rake another time.
G-ma and G-pa have about wore their raking muscles out!
Our Kitchen had the Best Smells floating through it this week. There were apple bars,buns,chili,enchiladas,ham,chicken,
ribeyes and pork steaks. I snagged some baked apple,sweet potato,squash and some vanilla ice cream,too...
Old Baby and I both had tubbies... I had my ears and eyes
cleaned. My teeth brushed. Nails ground off and hair brushed. Always have some extra treats with the grooming business.
I preformed my normal duties of being laundry inspector. Made sure I laid in all the loads of Hot Clothes. Checking to see that they are properly cleaned.
I made a new furpal this week. G-pa's great nephew came from Minnesota to hunt pheasants. Jesse their golden lab, retrieves the birds.(Her job is more interesting than mine. I keep these two old people hopping around here) Jesse and I made up to each other right away. I wish, she could have had time to play with me. Her Daddy worked her really hard in the prairie fields. She is a city pupper...Not used to all that daily exercise....
G-ma wouldn't let me go hunting with Jesse's group. I had to stay home and supervise. Sometimes when we walk the prairie, I flush some pheasants. I think, I could do Jesse's job real easy?
Well,I guess, I'd better go... I heard G-ma say something about making omlettes.... I wanna make sure I'm sitting in the corner of the cooking area. I have dibs on anything that hits the floor! It's mine,all mine!!!!!!

Today was ever so busy! We started the morning with a quick pit stop outside. The cooler 30's ...I've been throwing on a light sweater. Took care of business and beat it inside. Where I toast myself on the heat register in the kitchen. I had little breakfast,then snuggled down into my blanket and bed...
The BEST smells were floating through the kitchen. First there was the smell of Mexican food. G-ma was making up a pan of Beef Enchiladas for supper. (I always beg for a taste of the shredded cheese)... Mess was cleaned up and pans were flying around the kitchen, again.
These smells were sweet and spicy.... A big pan of apple bars were baking in the oven. The spicy smell of cinnamon and sweet smell of apples... My little mouth just watered! Thinking about the baked apples instead of the raw slices we share the day before. Auntie gave them to us. Deer were just pulling them off the trees and one bite...they were done! Move on, to another apple...I like my apples...Glad my Auntie picked them off!
We had a huge Mess in the kitchen...Flour was everywhere. Oodles of pans, measuring cups and dirty bowls. G-ma hurried along...everything was cleaned up by dinner time. Guess What?
Yep, we had hot apple bars with vanilla ice cream for dinner...
Actually G-ma did... I had a taste for dessert after my regular dinner.
We had surprised hunter friends for company today. I barked ever so fierce at those hunters. They were Big guys! When G-ma invited them in for fresh dessert and coffee. I decided, it was O.K. for them to be in the house with us. I went and laid in my bed,took a nap; while they visited....
Mid-afternoon G-ma decided it was time for me to have a bath.
So I smell, ever so sweet! My puppy shampoo is baby powder scent. I really dddddooooo smell like a baby!
I've had this same bottle for 3 years. Only half of it is used. At this rate, I'll be 6 or 7 and still have shampoo...Doxies don't need baths, very often....I was toweled with my big beach towel. Followed by the blow dryer.... I love the blow dryer held on me. This was exhausting!!! So I went took a nap in the sunny window.
G-ma washed a huge load of towels and rags. I was able to lay in HOT dried towels, just as the chill of evening air drifted into the ranch house. Oven was back on bake for those beef enchiladas.(I didn't have any Mexican) I did have my chicken-rice kibble, followed by my usual vension bites.
Spent a little time looking at autombiles online. Guess, my Grandparents, think our Rodeo needs to be replaced. Sounds like they are going to go take a closer look at some cars. Don't know when or where????? We are fitting this into the already overpacked days???? I hope it is easier to see out of a car window????
Yesterday, G-ma and I took a very brisk walk across the prairie. The only thing I found to chase was a field mouse! He ran into a hole,lickety split!!! I tried to dig him out....I really tired! He gotta away...
I played with some of the young barn cats a little again, today. I think it's just cool, when I chase them.... Now they are chasing me... What's up with that????? I run, when they chase me.... If, they are close...I start to whine,squeal and cry! They are not even touching me!!! G-pa says, "I'm a prissie little wiener! Not as tough, as I pretend!"
Maybe, I'm just squealing with DELIGHT!!!! Since Old Baby and Old Precious DON'T Play at ALL!!!! I found some playmates!!!!!
They are young..... Kittens from last spring... They are as BIG as I am... Actually TALLER, than I am...They are Ever so FAST! If, in the Mood to play.....Nice kitties..they don't bite or scratch...
So All in All....It was a Swell, Fall Day! We put up a new flood light. Need a little more light after dark. Seems kinda scary and creepy out there in the dark. The cycotes were holding a howl-a-thon tonight. I was answering their songs with my little doxie howl...G-ma sat on the step and laughed at me....OH! We have a Big Hoot Owl in our Trees,too... He just showed up...He sure can make alot of noise. He has such Big eyes....
Well, this little gal better get to bed! Tomorrow we are back to raking leaves again. Windy today...Leaves are everywhere! I think there is another zillion leaves left???? Hope it is a little warmer tomorrow. Wind was chilly this afternoon.

Well yesterday G-ma was back to raking leaves. Took 4 days to recover from the 1st. go round. Sure wasn't as nice outside, either. Temperature was about 53 for the high. The sunny was out, thank goodness.
I started the day with a light sweater on. I tucked myself into G-ma's flannel quilted jacket to stay warm in the patio chair.
As the day unfolded it warmed up, so I shed my sweater.
We worked about 5 hours on the yard. G-pa was hauling bales all day. We made 25 Big piles of leaves. He came and loaded them the last 2 hours before supper. This makes 4 loads on the big stock trailer....Looks like a couple more times to finish this big job! Seems like there is no end to this leaf mess....
While we were in for lunch, a sneaky squirrel was visiting my yard. G-ma saw him out the window.... I was too busy chowing down! He was very quiet...I didn't pick him up on my doxie radar,either.
After lunch we returned to work. OMD! Was my Nose happy! I spent the afternoon following the squirrel tracks and trails. They were all over my yard. Up and down the 60 yr. old cottonwoods. He ran across some flower beds to boot!
Way more exciting than trying to convince the kittens to be my new furpals.... I tried all morning long.... They think, I am too vocal ... I do like to Yap! They can squeeze in and out of the fenced in frontyard. By the time, I got there... those 3 stinkers were somewhere else. I had to take the long way around! They can climb trees.... How do they do that? Have they got suction cups on their paws???????
Looks like our October Indian Summer is slipping away. Today it is cold,gray,breezy,cloudy....It is only 40 ish today... Not nice at all! I decided to keep my light weight sweater on, even in the house. (I usually poo-poo my clothes) I have sweaters, suede with pile and flannel coats. I also have a raincoat. It has always been a battle to get me to wear them...I always threw a Big Hissy Fit!!!!
Now that I am 3..... I'm re-thinking my wardrobe... I'm thinking, since I'm a TAR baby, ya know, Toast and Roast....
These pawsome clothes, G-ma bought me,as well as sweaters she knitted. (with her 2 little arthritic hands) Pretty Good Things to have around.....
Well,while I'm doing my diary ... I'm all snug as a bug in a rug! Besides, I look pretty darn cute,too! Maybe, I better look that last fur catalog over, again????? I may want to order some new threads...Hum? Where did she put that catalog?????
