Arrival Story:
Momma found me hanging around a mile from there place. I was seen repeatedly going in and out of a salough area. (marshy wetlands) I was living on bugs,garter snakes and whatever else I could find. I was young,shy and very afraid of automobiles. Not too sure about human,either! Momma was with her parents. They had been out to dinner while they were visiting. She stopped and tried to convince me to get into the car. Nothing doing! I was afraid...So, she took a granola bar out of the glove box. She walked home, dropping bites of snack bar on the ground. I was not hungry, but starved. I followed the crumbs all the way. Keeping a safe distance between us. Once we were home, Momma gave me food and water. It wasn't too long, I let her lead me into the fenced in frontyard. I would let her and Grandma touch me. I wasn't having anything to do with men. I was really afraid of men..... Didn't take long to figure out that I was full of ticks,fleas, and all kinds of parasites. They removed 100's of ticks from me. Treated me for the fleas. As to the parasites, it took all summer to rid me of them. I had so many kinds. Including hookworms. (big clue.. they are not native to ND.... I had come from somewhere else?) They also discovered that I had been thrown from a moving auto. (fear of autos) I had been nursed...No puppies were found. Once, I was settled down....I was introduced to Foxie. She was 2 yrs. old. She was about the same height and size. Back when I was starved and weighed about 15 pounds. Foxie weighed 20 lbs. Foxie and I became fursissies. We were great companions for each other. The vet said, I was probably a year older than Foxie. (This is how they determined my age). I was spayed so future puppies would not be a problem. Took all summer before I'd take a treat from Daddy hand and back up about 10 feet to eat it. Little by little, I began to trust again. As time passed they discovered, that someone had hit me with shovels,brooms,chains and doors... any of these items made me afraid...I would go into orbit way back then, when anyone handled any of these items.... I had never been inside a house...until my forever home. I had never had toys. Foxie had to teach me how to play with toys. I had never had a bath....Phewy!!!! Time pasted and I settled into my forever family. I discovered that bad people didn't come to our home. All these many years later, I love everyone. I am very affection. No one had to house train me. I was so happy to have a family and a home...I never went potty in the house. Foxie and I became great friends. Foxie wasn't boiling over with so much energy, once we had each other to play with. This gave Momma a big break...Foxie and I loved to hunt the prairie together with Momma. Foxie went to Rainbow Bridge in June of 2007. I was so sad and missed her so much. I withdrew from evryone for awhile. I grieved as much as Momma did.It was a tough year for me. My family didn't think, I'd last much longer. Finally, I stopped missing Foxie so much and things were better. Foxie has been gone for 3 yrs. I am now, 18 yrs. old. I sleep alot. I don't like to play to much anymore. I can't take the extreme cold or hot weather. I go out and do my business and back in I come. I'm a little hard of hearing now. I have arthritis. I started having little siezures a year ago. I've lost a few teeth. I've become fussy with what I want to eat. My family feeds me whatever, I will eat. I am content with being a senior citizen.I have now developed cataracts in both eyes.Between 2010-2011. I am very tolerant of Mazy.... The bouncing Princess of the Ponderosa. I've never once been cross with her. I just don't want to play the silly games anymore. Good weather days, I still like to lay outside and go for a short walk. I still like to have my ears rubbed. I like treats. I like to be brushed. I do a little hoppity thing called my Happy Dance! My time in this world is growing short. I'm slowing down a little more each day. I have some other health issues that are all age related. Mom is hoping that I go in my sleep. Foxie had a stroke and died within a few minutes in Momma's arms. While Daddy was trying to reach a vet. I dream about the Rainbow Bridge where Foxie is waiting for me. I look forward to Foxie and I being together again. Neither of us will be sick or old. We will run, play and hunt together as we once did. I have a wonderful, safe home here on the prairie. I've had a good life here in my forever home.

We were in the eye of a tornado in 1999. Now I am really afraid of thunder,lightening,harsh high winds and thunderstorms. I have anxiety attacks...whenever it is going to storm....

Angel Baby's Ramblings

The spring flower bouquets are all over our dogster/catster pages.
Thank you pals for thinking of US:
FOXIE AND BABY....Our pages are so cheery and beautiful.

Our dogatary was shocked in her email box!!! Apparently the fleas were
very active when Flowers were sent....Many pals, their flowers
arrived several different times! Took her a long time to delete our email
notices. I thought it was Funny!!!!! something FUN for an ugly
weather day!

Today a Wintry mix on the North Dakota Prairie. Spitting snow,gray,
cold and very damp. The wind blew and pounded the house all night long!
Last week, Our Governor put a burning ban on..... It is very very dry
here in our state. The risk of prairie fires is very real! Have even
ask people to not burn their fire-pits in their yards. Doesn't take
much for thousands of acres to burn on the prairie. Our house has been
there and done that! Would rather NOT fight additional open prairie fires.
Often sparks from the trains cause fires to start. Carelessness as
well as lack of common sense start many fires.

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
to see.
of Baby,Foxie and Precious
and 1 Old Grandma

Angel Baby- sprinkled angel dust, but Zelda,a min-pin is on her page.
Right ID but wrong pup....

So anywho, Mazy could read group mails today. She can't access her
groups. Tells her she isn't a member. We tried and tried...We pmailed
HQ with the problem.

We can look at pals pics and diaries but we can't comment. Gives us
Error 4 or error 6 messages.

Mazy can't say she is tryin' to access dogster daily. Grandma is
tryin' to work on the fall stuff before winter shows up. A week
ago, it was in the 90's. Then the bottom fell out and was, 50-60.
The next 2 nights, the prairie will take HARD freezes. It is 40
at 2p. and the wind today will gust to 40mph.

We picked oodles of tomatoes yesterday. Put in our sunroom
to ripen. We are done canning and freezing for this year. We only
have apples to process for baking and into sauce. We are eating
ripe tomatoes. The mega over flow, it going to the Nursing Home
and the County Senior Center. As well as anyone who wants Maters!

This week:Gma and Gpa cleaned a bunch of the garden plants off.
Chasin' sticks all over the yard. Washing exterior windows and
trim. Knocked all the stuff off the steel siding of house.
After the hard freeze,will start cutting flowers back. Empty
perennial flower pots.

Mazy has been on alot of guard duty. Gma and Gpa have been runnin'
to grandson's football games and granddaughter's volley ball games.
Gpa has been drivin' Gma around to a bunch of medical appointments.
2014 has been a very tough year for Gma. Next week, she has 3 more
medical appts. Some were routine and things put off. Others are
on going issues. Still lookin' for ways to reduce her chronic pain.
Mazy hasn't had another IBS attack,since she finished her antibiotics.
She will take probiotics 2x's a day for rest of her life.......

Gpa and Gma are going out with the furmily to celebrate Grandpa's
64th. birthday. Gma is going to make him grilled ribeye and lobster
tail with baked potato and green beans for his birthday supper
at home. Phooey! His B-day cake is going to be dark chocolate...
Mazy isn't goin' to like that! This past year both of them have slowed
down alot! They just can't work as many hours or as long of days
as they used too.....Seems like they are always behind....Hoping
for a LLLLLLLLLLLLLLoooooooooooonnnnnnnnnngggggggggg FALL! So much
to do before snow flies......

Here's the Zillion dollar question?????? Will this diary post
for my furmily?????????? Sprinklin' extra Angel Dust and prayin'

All Our Love,
Ponderosa Angels
Baby,Foxie and Precious

Mazy says "HOWDY!!!!!!!!"
