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???

I'm leaving candies and toys here for all my FURPALS... Take whatever you want....Happy Valentine Season!!!! I think, this is my favorite season.... Cuz, I'm a Impossible Romantic! I have a Big Heart!
I won the Pupper Toy Lottery.... I can't possibly ever play with all these stuffies! So many puppers are having poopie weather, like way up north...So, let's pick,play and party hardy with our toys...while the Humans clean up the messies!
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....

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
