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....
2 feet of Snow 2011

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?????????
