June 10th 1996
June 10th 1992
Perfect weather days,. Not too hot or too cold.
She doesn't have any. She is so content and easy going. Except for storms.
Once in awhile she will still play with a ball.
Vension,chicken,canned beef or chicken or liver.
Out to the hay yard and back.
Her Happy Dance.....
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....
I Still Like Granola Bars or Cookies!!!!

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!

Thank you pals for remembering my Bridge Day June 3rd.
and my birthday on June 10th. My page is ever so pretty
with all the pressies my pals sent. Gma was all leaky
eyed when she found the notes,pictures,cake and pressies.
Down there on the prairie is was a gray drippy wet day
on the 3rd. Gma thought the weather suited her being so
sad. Thinking about me all day. She kept real busy as she
is still trying to catch up with all the work of the growing
season. Today on my birthday, it was a lovely day on the prairie.
No rain or wind,sunshine,84 but humid. Nicest day they have had
Gpa hustled around and mowed for Gma. Mowing is needed
every 3-4 days with all the rain. Gpa stopped counting
the inches after they hit 9" in 3 wks. Gma was cleaning
up the house. Since she spent most of 5 days outside working.
The garden is finally all planted.(Took 3 days due to weather)
The flower pots were all planted this past weekend too.
Garden went in about 12 days later than last year.
Things are very lush and green on the prairie Angel Foxie
and I love. It isn't dry at all now! The corrals are big
sloppy messes. Water holes,never seem to have a chance to
dry up. Rain is in the forecast for next couple days.
Gpa put all the cows with new calves,the yearling calves,
the fall calving cows out on pasture. They are so enjoying
all the fresh green grass.
Mazy and Gma are back to outside work for the next 3 days.
Weeding,digging in flower beds. Planting flower seeds.
Cleaning the patio furniture and the gas grill. A muddy car
is waiting to be scrubbed inside and out. A garage needs
cleaning too. Maybe this week, the wind and rain will
allow enough time to spray for insects. Gma thinks the
mosquitoes will be the size of buzzards this year.
Up here at the bridge, we've been playing games,eating
treats and welcoming new arrivals. Keeping an eye on our
furmilies down there. So don't worry about us Gma...We
know it's a tough month for you. Both our bridge days
so close together, my birthday, your birthday and the
1st. father's day without you Daddy. Keep your chin up!
Things will get better real soon...
All Our Love,
Angel Baby and Angel Foxie
