Angel Foxie here...I wanted to thank all my pals who
remembered my Gotcha Day!!! Grandma actually forgot
the actual date this year...Not just old age but its
been over 2 decades since I had my Gotcha Day...Not a
day goes by that she doesn't think of "ME"!
We tried a couple times in the last couple days to
send thank yous with a Spring Flower Greeting....
Doggie fleas won't allow her to do it???? We will
try again...Please, don't think we Didn't see the
notes,graphics,pressies and all those Hugs!
We Love Each and Every Pal!
Let's hope, doggie fleas will not affect my diary?
Happy Spring Time and a Blessed Easter to All
Waiting patiently for the new site transfer....
Mazy can load pics but not rearrange her order
Sometimes she can access her diary and other times
not? Paws crossed she has been able to send messages
with the zealies to furpals.

A VERY LONG ROAD OF 5 YEARS FOR NATURE TO MEND THOSE.
MEDICATIONS WEREN'T VERY HELPFUL. YOU STUCK WITH ME EVERY
MOMENT...YOU WOULDN'T LET ME QUIT,EVEN WHEN I WANTED TOO!
WE WALKED ACROSS OUR PRAIRIE,THOUSANDS OF MILES IN YOUR
LIFETIME. YOU WERE A SHINING BRIGHT LIGHT IN MY LIFE.
EVEN WITH ALL THE ENERGY YOU HAD, YOU REIGNED YOURSELF
IN...ACCORDING TO THE DAY I WAS HAVING.....YOU STOLE
MY HEART AND A PIECE OF MY SOUL. SOMEDAY, WE WILL BE
YOU'D BE PROUD OF OUR LITTLE MAZY. YOU'D HAVE LOVED HER

HAS PICKED UP WHERE YOU LEFT OFF. CARRYING ME THROUGH
2 MORE HERNIATED DISCS,A BACK SURGERY,SURGERY TO
REMOVE A MASS. SHE STICKS TO ME LIKE GLUE,JUST LIKE
YOU DID. SHE CAN TELL THE GOOD DAYS FROM THE BAD. SHE
ACTS ACCORDINGLY. AS I'M SLOWING DOWN IN LIFE,DUE TO
THE FIBROMYALGIA AND ARTHRITIS FALL-OUT. AS WELL AS
ALL THE OTHER PHYSICAL ISSUES AND JUST PLAIN AGING.
SHE IS MY KEEP ME GOING AND PLUGGING ALONG PUP!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET GIRL! I KNOW YOU'RE HAVING A BLAST

Just Poppin' in to say,MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
to all the Furs here at dogster and catster. On behalf of the
PONDEROSA ANGELS: Baby and Foxie, who were joined by Precious
the kitty, this past March....All nominated Me, the Ponderosa
Princess, Mazy the doxie to speak for us all.....
We'd like to thank all the pals who mailed us cards to help
us celebrate the Holidays. Thank all the furs,pups and kits,
that prettied our pages for the season. The pmails and emails
to stay in touch. We Love You ALL and pray for a Pawsome 2015
for each of you!
We tried very hard to keep up with all our pals. Juggling
several sites while waiting to see what would happen with
our Beloved Dogster/Catster...proved to be an overwhelming
task for my dogatary. Finally, she admitted it was an....
IMPOSSIBLE task to add to her workload. Now that our site
has been bought out and is being rebuilt...We HOPE in the
FUTURE, many of the pals will Return here. If not, we will
consider ourselves Blessed for the Time in which our Paths
and Paws Crossed in this World.
I'll be back after the Holidays to Report on Our Christmas
here on the Prairie. Better sign off,places to go and people
ALL OUR LOVE, MAZY

Hi there Pals- Thank you for the greetings and
pressies last week on my Gotcha Day. So pawsome to
still be here at dogster even with its mess of Fleas.
Hopefully that will change in the future.
Do you know what???? This past Gotcha Day ...it was 20 yrs. since the
day Mom and I chose each other. I came from a big litter with lots
of siblings. Mom handled and played with all of them. We were a very
I was the one who,kept coming back after I had my turn to play,
snuggle and be held. I'd crawl up on her lap and try to
push my sisters and brothers out of the way.... It was
only the sisters I was worried about.
Mom plainly stated the puppy had to be a girl!
Finally I couldn't take it and I had to be front and center....So I
pushed and wiggled and crawled right over them all! Then I stretched
myself, BIG and TALL! I laid a tons of kisses,all over Mom's Face!
She pulled me back and looked into my Eyes....She said,
they sparkled like magic! She held me close and I snuggled.
The other pups went back to their bedroom and I stayed....
I did all I could to show off,spread kisses,curl up and
be cozy and cute! I crawled into her big Bag that
was a purse....
She was suppose to just be LOOKING....but,when she left,I left with
her! We went to the store,bought a collar,leash,extra food and toys.
Her sister was driving the car....So I curled up and slept! When
we got out of the car,I was at my Grandpa and Grandma's house.
Mom was visiting them in Indiana for their 40 th. wedding anniversary.
I would potty outside right away. I would bring my precious stuff
duck and ball back.(The very 1st. time we tried that game!)
I was a natural at retrieving...
This began the Love Affair that lasted 13 1/2 yrs.
I was a go getter! I never let Mom give up on herself.
Through some real serious health problems.
I was at her side every step of the way! The stories I
could tell you,would fill a book!
I'm sssssssssssssoooooooooooo Happy that MOM
forgot about my gotcha day! Not the month,just
the day....It means that Mom is happy!
Little Mazy is doing a pawtastic job at being her companion.
Mom (aka Gma) has really slowed down in the last 7 yrs.
Good thing that Mazy is smaller. Easier to groom,
not as fast as I was....
Doesn't want to do 5 miles every day!
Mom,I will always love you! I'm waiting at the bridge
with all your other furs. You've had a dog pal since
you were 2! Everyone of us are here...
Baby and I are watching...Waiting for you and Dad
to have that real retirement time.
Mazy will be a pawsome traveler.....
Gotta go,time for our afternoon games. Absolutely,
I'm playing ball and then hide-n-seek.
After that Baby and I are going fishing with the
They are so much fun to hang
out with .....
I get to swim while they fish.
I forgot Mom....Precious is here!
She's settled in and doing fine....
She's okay for a CAT! We look out
for her...She sure caught on to
the wings and flyin' around here
Love and Angel Kisses, Foxie

Hi There Pals of dogster and catster...I'm
zooming through to bark at YOU! I belong to the
Ponderosa Pack of: Angel Baby,Amazing Grace and
Precious. I was the last pup of the pack to have
my own corner. How dogster embraced me,even when
I was already at the bridge before I found dogster.
So many Angel pals,I've made in the last 4 yrs.
Baby finally joined me,so we could be together
again. Once Baby thought, Mom could now handle
Precocious Mazy on her own....
I want to thank all the Fur Families that became
friends of ours. We have traveled many roads
together in the last 4 years. We have had some
wonderful times. We take with us,many cherished
I know the new journey that takes all of us
away from dogster and catster will: Make Us
Stronger Than Before. We will bind up our
wounded hearts. Find a New Place for Us
to build a bigger stronger Fur-Kingdom....
So much has been done,by so many.....since
receiving the news of the shut-down. We have
Options! We will leave here as Winners! We
Will Survive! We Will Continue to assist each
other. We will Enjoy OUR LAST DAYS HERE......
Dry Up the Tears,Dear Furs...Let Us, Carry On!
Let Us Embrace the Future,Enjoy the Present
and Remember the Past Fondly.

Howdy Earthly Pals,as well as All the Fur Angels
at the bridge. Thank you so very much for remembering
me on my special Barkday!
I didn't know until this year, that my barkday is
the anniversary of Dogster. They are 10 years old
today! WowZer,that is pretty special! My furmily
has made so very many furiends here. We LOVE them
Surprised to find that dogster wanted the furs
to help Celebrate today. They left FREE cakes
and balloons in the gifties for us to share.
Wake up those dogataries and catataries and
spread the balloons and cakes both far and wide!
Show all those Furs just how much you love them.
Here at the bridge there is a big party going on.
We're playin' with tons of dogster/catster balloons.
Cuttin' up cakes left and right. The BBQ grills
are fired up...Meatz of every kind is on there.
Steaks,chicken,pork,burgers and wieners....Yummy
to all the snouts around here. Even grills with fish!
Some of our furs,not just the kitties, like their fish.
We have endless games........Softball,soccer,sled races,
swimming,apple bobbing,hide n seek,chase,field and tracking.
That's just a few of the games....I forgot flying
races and cloud jumping are real popular around here.
I hear Angel Niki calling me. We share the same birthday.
We are two of the honored guests for the party today.
Mom-I'm doing just fine up here....Of course,I miss you!
I'll be here waiting for you. Angel Baby says, "Hi,Mom!"
the bridge is great. Foxie and I are so happy to be
together again. Angel Sassy Foxie throws angel dust kisses
as she flies off to join the games.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL FURS OF DOGSTER AND CATSTER.
MAY THE NEW YEAR BE HEALTHY,HAPPY AND FILLED WITH LOVE.
THANK YOU FOR REMEMBERING US ANGEL PUPS WITH ALL YOUR
MAILS TO OUR EARTHLY PRAIRIE HOME. WE KNOW INCLUDING
US, MADE OUR GMA SO VERY HAPPY. WE THANK YOU FOR ALL
THE HOLIDAY PRESSIES SENT TO OUR FOREVER PAGES.
Well Momma, we've been so very busy with all the
holidays here at the bridge. Just a blur of festivities
taking place. Parties everyday is normal here.
Like our earthly home,things are all in a flutter
of extras from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day.
I discovered, I like to yodel and sing like Mazy.
So I joined the heavenly fur choir. Practice and
singing at activities really keeps furs very busy!
My favorite music is still all the Christmas music
like floated through our home each year.
I still teach games to pups, who never learned to
play a good game of softball. Hide-n-seek is a
favorite of the young puppies. I'm a master at
that game,so I coach them on the in's and out's.
I've taught tracking and hunting,by sight,smell
and hearing. I organize the endurance marathons,
since a 5 mile deer chase was just a good stretch
for me. OMD! Momma,lakes and rivers here are the
very best. I swim everyday and herd ducklings
on the water.Angel Baby and I join, both Great
Grandpas, who are still the best of friends....
on their fishing outings. Baby works on her tan,
while I swim. We both, enjoy all the pampering
our Great Grandpa's give us. Life here is good
Momma. While I miss your touch upon my fur, I
watch over you. I know someday you'll cross that
bridge to be with us again.
Momma, I gotta go.... puppies are wanting me to
show them how to bob for apples and not suck water
up their snouts....Okay pups settle down, I'm
comin'! I have a bag of tasty yellow apples to
teach you with. Afterwards,I'll show you how to
roast an apple. We'll build a small campfire and
put the apples on sticks. If, you're very good
puppies....We will make jerky meatz over the
the fire while it slowly burns to ash....
All this talk of food, I'm hungry!
OMD! I need a cookie...They're great here,but
Momma, I rrreeeaaalllllyyyyyyyy miss your
homemade cookies. They always were given
with some snuggles.
Love You, Momma
kisses and huggies,
Angel Sassy Foxie

HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2013
ALL OUR LOVE AND BLESSINGS
WE ARE BLESSED TO HAVE SO MANY PALS
THE PONDEROSA PACK

Pirate Pals-The Ponderosa Pack of Angels Baby and Foxie,
Precious and myself,Amazing Grace want to Thank all our pals
who sent those Pawsome Pirate Flags to our pages. Huggies
and Kissies to All for Prettying Up Our Little Corner of
Dogster and Catster.
While ya'll were having Pawsome Fun with Pirate Day, I was
Pouting Away! The Old People left me here by myself,very
early in the morning....No one was around,Puppy Patrol
was Boring! Precious ran outside before they left...
Traitor CAT that she is,jumped Ship! I had NO ONE to keep
I couldn't surf and play with pals...cuz, that mean old Gma
always Plugs the Pull on the Puter! I had alot of really BAD
puppy thoughts about Gma that day....Until they returned
home....She looked a little puffy and pale. She wouldn't
pick me up and snuggle me!
She Had that Bad toopher Pulled...She wanted to just put
the few things away and sit down. She finally told me,
she didn't want to pick me up,cuz...she was afraid,I'd
bump her face.
She said, it wasn't a BAD experience,since they gave her
sleepy stuff. She slept through the whole thing! Took
over 3 hrs. for her face to thaw out... She took some
pain medicine and rested awhile. Then she got up and
made supper for us.
I remember, when they took my impacted baby canines out.
It were NOT FUN!!!!!!!! They put me to sleepy land too!
After I thought about that, I wasn't MAD at Gma for leaving
me home by myself!
After supper I crawled up on her lap and kept her toasty.
Gma only needed pain meds. for 1 day. Gpa slept in other
bedroom a couple nights. Didn't want to turn over and bump
On the UPSIDE: she had very little swelling,no bruising,
no problem opening her mouth...All her other toophers
stopped aching! She isn't so tired All the time now....
A 20 year crowned toopher doesn't leak and decay underneath
over night. Everyday the rest of her body is feeling a
little perkier! She's glad that is taken care of!!!!
Thank you for the prayers and positive thoughts......
A BIG PLUS FOR GMA: We've had 4.25" of rain in September.
So nice guy that Gpa is: went and pulled all the plants in
the garden for Gma. She can't have dirt in her nose or mouth,
it could affect her 2 weeks of healing. She finished her
antibiotics. Gma still has sweet potatoes,carrots and tomatoes
in the garden. Everything else is out! WE HAVEN'T HAD A FROST
WE Picked sticks, did big fall cleaning on cattle room. The
laundry all day Sunday,baked biscuits,zucchini bread and
paid bills. Today we did our Big house cleaning. Tomorrow
we have a big box of ripe tomatoes to make chili base and
pasta sauce. We had company 3 times this weekend and so I
had lots of extra Pats and Praises. Gma made a huge pot of
vegetable soup she has been eating for lunches. Most things
she can eat. The oral surgeon had a few things on a list to
stay away from. She does these weird salt swishies,several
times a day. Wednesday we are hoping to start washing the
windows and blinds. Gma made it to granddaughter's basketball
game. Kenzie won and scored 12 points. I'm going to start
a petition, cuz,puppies can't go to basketball games! I'm
such a Pawsome Cheering Squad! I am much better behaved
than many big people, who yell as the refs. all the Time!
It's now officially FALL so my people have to work a little
faster! So much outside work and so little time! Rain in
forecast....Phooey! cuz, the new carpet for the back outside
steps hasn't been done yet! Gpa has been fixing fence and
pounding posts with his bad shoulder. He hasn't started moving
hay bales yet. Next week, Gpa will have another barkday!!!!!
WowZer,2013 sure has zipped right by!
Kisses and Huggies, Mazy and Precious

A Bridge Called Love
It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days and to precious
moments that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to
those from whom we part.
There is a bridge of Memories
from earth to Heaven above.
It keeps our dear ones near
us, it's the bridge that
we call Love......
THANK YOU MOMMA SHAWNA AND THE KIRK PUPS FOR THIS
VERY BEAUTIFUL POEM. A TRIBUTE TO GREAT GRANDPA,
AS WELL AS ANGEL FOXIE AND ANGEL BABY.
ALL WHO ARE MISSED VERY MUCH. THE MONTH OF JUNE IS
PROVING TO BE A VERY DIFFICULT ONE. FIGHTING THE WEATHER,
LOTS OF WIND,RAIN AND HUMIDITY. (FINALLY HAVE THE
VEGETABLE GARDEN AND MOST OF THE FLOWERS PLANTED).
MOWING SOMETHING EVERY 2-3 DAYS. PICKING AWAY AT THE
SPRING LIST OF WORK. SO BUSY, MAZY,GPA AND GMA ARE
MEETING THEMSELVES COMING AND GOING....
THIS ISN'T ALL BAD....GMA HAS TO STAY VERY BUSY
RIGHT NOW. THE MONTH OF JUNE IS VERY EMOTIONAL
FOR HER. ANGEL BABY'S BIRTHDAY DAY AND BRIDGE DAY.

WITHOUT HER DADDY. PLUS ANOTHER BIRTHDAY FOR OLD
GMA TOO... PROVING TO BE A VERY ROUGH 2 WEEKS.
AS ALWAYS,SHE WORKS A LITTLE HARDER WHEN HER HEART
ANGEL FOXIE HAS BEEN GONE 6 YRS. ON FRIDAY THE 14TH.
DOESN'T SEEM POSSIBLE IT WAS 6 YRS. AGO,WHEN I HELD
HER IN MY ARMS FOR THE LAST TIME. SHE LOOKED AT ME,
PEACEFULLY SLIPPED AWAY. GOD ANSWERED MY PRAYERS
AND SENT LITTLE MAZY INTO MY LIFE. I DIDN'T THINK,
I'D LAST THE SUMMER WITHOUT FOXIE. SHE WAS THE ONLY
ONE WHO COULD HELP ME RE-HAB. MY BACK. FIGHT THE
DEPRESSION THAT THREATENED TO DESTROY ME. KEEP ME
FIGHTING THE MISERABLE FIBROMYALGIA,ARTHRITIS AND
MULTIPLE HERNIATED DISCS. FOXIE WOULDN'T LET ME
GIVE UP ON MYSELF. WOULDN'T LET THE CHRONIC PAIN
OVER TAKE AND DESTROY ME. SHE MADE ME GET UP,EAT,
EXERCISE,KEEP MOVING....SHE WAS THE BEST 4 PAWED
NURSE THAT EVER GRACED THIS WORLD. I STILL MISS
I MISS MY ANGEL GIRLS..... ANGEL FOXIE AND ANGEL BABY.....
DAD, I HOPE THE GIRLS ARE SITTING ONE ON EACH SIDE OF
YOU, AS YOU FISH A POND IN YOUR LITTLE CORNER OF HEAVEN.
