It's a rainy,gray,drippy damp day.... My Gma's friend has a Westie puppy named CeCe....They sent us the the NOTE below....
Mazy laughed....But she's crazy! She went out and played in the rain with Gpa. I choose to cross my paws and only go when absolutely necessary!

This old canine citizen wants to KNOW: Where is this Weather Service???? So, I can COMPLAIN about SPRING.....Not SPRINGING on a Normal schedule??????? A couple dogster puppers are tellin' me, they are having weather that is way to HOT! We are way too, COOL.... Can't we share?????

Now that I'm so elderly: I am extremely fussy about my weather! I do not like HOT and I really HATE cold,damp,wet or windy!!!!
The Below weather service better get their ACT TOGETHER! When I find out where the Office is: I'm gonna go over there and POOP on their Sidewalk and Steps... I'M LEAVING MY POOPER BAGS AT HOME....ANY OTHER Senior Canines with me on this Protest???????

Dear Weather Customer:Due to budget cuts, the downsizing of our workforce, and high demand, the season that you ordered (Spring) is on backorder. New supplies of this item are scheduled for delivery in your area beginning June 9, 2011. In an effort to make sure our customers do not go weatherless, you will continue to receive your current season (Winter) free of charge.Thank you for being a valued customer.

I mean really!!!! Just who do they think they are????? How about skipping coffee breaks,lunches and exercise time. They Could Fill the Spring Weather Orders much sooner than June.... I think they need a New CEO at the Weather Station!

It's windy,cold,rainy and 35,temperatures are falling. Changing to snow after midnight. Everything is so sloppy! Snow, slush,
waterholes and mudholes....Here we go again! The 10" between the 14-15th. shocked me! Today I need a towel every trip I make outside...

Yesterday is was sunny and 47. I spent some time outside walking around. Sunday after the grandkids left...I was outside with Gma. Mazy was following Gpa with graining chores. Sloppin' the water,mud and stinkies. I stayed on the snow where it was clean...

I think, Angel Foxie sprinkled me with angel dust....I don't know what came over me? I laid down in the snow and did pupper angels, jumped up and did my happy dance. I had Gma so tickled...I did it a couple more times.... Later that night, Art and Ritis made it REAL Tough to get up and down the stairs to do my bedtime potty.... A few minutes of insanity! I thought I was a young pupper,again! Is this HOW OLD DOGTIMERS,STARTS??

Now the old weathermen, I sure don't like those guys! Say: next 2 weeks..lots of WET! Rain,snow,snow,rain, and rain-snow mix....
Gpa said, another day or two and He will be walking like a duck!
Gma went to town with Gpa today. He did his errands at the Vet for the moo-moos.... We have 3 little babies on the bottle already! Gma did her grocery errands. Gma said, I'm not taking the good car down that mushy,muddy road... Gpa took Gma to the new cafe in town. What a surprise! We all had turkey pupperoni sticks when they came home.

I've been smelling that Roast Beef in the crockpot ALL DAY! I know, I'll be having roast beef...cuz,I'll turn my Nose up at my canned food! This having an Old Tummy,plus lots of age, gives me EXTRA PERKS! I had scrambled eggs,steak and chicken this week, too...Just Pawsome! My FurDoc says, I can have whatever I'll EAT...Something to do with how old I am???? Gma thinks, the canned stuff doesn't smell as good to my Old Nose!
She thinks that is what has made me a Fussy Eater...Don't tell Gma, but I JUST PLAIN LIKE TO EAT WHAT GPA IS EATING!!!!!
WE may have sunshine for Easter....Gpa and Gma are babysitting the cattle on Easter...Just like every other day...I WONDER if, Gma will let me put in a SPECIAL ORDER for Sunday supper??????
Hugs and Kisses to All,


Can You Believe It?????

Mon. and Tues. this past week we had 70 then 60 degrees. Followed by 3 days of 40's. Tons of SNOW melted...We were back to pretty dry ground! It was Awesome! Between Thurs. and Fri. the temperatures fell and the frizzle became snow. The 1" prediction for our area turned into 10" of snow....It was heavy, wet, spring, snow with lots of water in it. Sat. the snow depth condensed to about 6" with temperature of mid 40's.

On Wed. Gma had cleaned up the gas grill, the patio and the patio furniture and Gpa's cattle room. Trying to get a start on setting us up for the growing season. We had done a little raking on Mon. and Tues. The wind showed up and temps. dropped way down to: night time of 25. BBUUURRRR!

Today it was only 32 when the Grandkids and their parents arrived after church. Gma had a clean grill so outside she went to do hamburgers.... We had a nice indoor picnic of Burgers on Buns, Veggie tray, assorted chips and dips, apple slices and carmel sauce, chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. We enjoyed our lunch and spent the afternoon playing dominoes. Well, about 4p. it clouded up and here it came: More SNOW! It has been snowing for 2 plus hrs. now. The temp. is about 30. This will make ice! Everything is wet and mucky from the other snow....The flakes are really large!

Mazy just had a tubbie to rinse off all the sand and mud from following Gpa while he was graining cattle. I stayed in the yard where there was good snow cover and no mud! I decided to roll in the snow the way I did when I was young. Gma had been brushing me everytime I went out this week. Cuz, I was rolling in the brown dead grass and dragging it inside. Gma said, I must be itchy? Probably need a bath???? I've not been real perky lately. Really picky with my meals... When I am finally offered, what I feel like having, I eat! Today, I ate beef roast with kibbles. One of the grandchildren left half a burger on a homemade bun...Absolutely, I ate that, plus 1 leftover hamburger patty!
I know it's quality meat, cuz Gpa raised it, himself!!!!

The forcast is snow and rain mixed or separate: Sun. thru this Tues. Will spring ever come and stay????? I think Gma's tulips and dwarfed iris tips have been froze several times now...I don't know, if they will bloom this year or not? Yard looks kinda Funny with Gma's leaf rakes and tubs sticking out of the snowbanks. We did still have snow in the shelterbelts and very low lying areas..... Now all the corrals are very mucky....
The ranchyard is chewed up by the tractor tires. This is not good weather for those calves to be born in!

Friday morning Gpa found 1 that was born sometime between bedtime and morning. He was huge!!! Over 130 lbs. Gpa warmed him up and has been feeding him. His Momma is only a 2nd. calfer and isn't interested in raising him. She had worked a long time to have him.... So we have our 1st. bottle calf. He was so chilled he couldn't stand up for a couple days. Now he can stand up. So he is improving

Us furs had a great indoor picnic but are not impressed with the weather change...Well, I've I'm off to have my supper and take a nap! Guys are speculating on when they will get into the fields.... Of course, it will be late...already is! Looking like May! This is Crazy,crazy weather.....Hugs and Kisses, Old Baby


I Think Spring Has Arrived????

April 8th 2011 3:46 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

The temperatures this week have hung between 48 and 56...Alot of snow has melted...Now we have mudholes,slushy piles and snowbanks. Sunshine mixed with partly sunny or total overcast like today...

The corrals are defrosting and very sloppy...The smell of melting manure floats through the air! If, I was still a young pupper: I'd be in those corrals looking for high protein treats!
Alas, those were the days of my youth!

I have been sunning myself a little each day. Today, rain is in the forcast but only saw a few sprinkles early this morning.Gpa has been selling yearling steers and hiefers the past 2 weeks. This will help with the corral muck. Also reduce the amount of hay and grain used to feed cattle everyday. Took alot of extra food to feed the cattle this winter. This was due to such a long,cold,hard,snowy winter.

We still have all the fall calves here. They will go green pastures as soon as pastures are ready. The spring calving started about a week ago. We have a few new calves everyday.
We hope all the snow will be gone in another week or two.
Alot of snow still piled into the shelter belts and low ground.
Hope the prediction for 2 storms in April are way off base!

I'd like to mention we found a SENIOR DOG FORUM here at dogster... Thanks HQ! The seniors have alot of unique issues as we age. Pretty sure, I'm one of the older puppers at dogster?
Nice to have an area where we can see what's up with the other seniors.

This week my arthritis seems to be bothering me more than normal. My appetite hasn't been constant. Somedays, I eat 3 mini-meals in a day. Other days,like yesterday....I finally ate, 1 time in the evening. I just wasn't too perky! I was peppy enough this week to announce strange autos at our place. As well as raise a stink over cattle in Gma's yard! However, by the time they were back home the cows had stomped Gma's yard...Looks like someone used a tiller in it...Gma is most Upset! Big mess and will make mowing the yard alot of extra work...Cows used their sniffer radar...Found a gate Gpa forgot to shut.....Oopsie!

Well pals, looks like I survived another BAD winter! I think, Spring is here to STAY! Hopefully, we will have a very long,long,long growing season.... By Easter, I should have green grass in my yard...I wanna roll in the new grass!

Hugs, Baby


Reporting on Precious and Odd Stuff......

Old Baby reporting for Gma, Precious and Our Pack. We would like to thank everyone for their prayers. Thank you for all the kind notes and pressies sent to Precious…. We appreciate each and every one of them….Gma and Gpa are calving now and a freezing rain is in tonight’s forecast. Gma doesn’t know if, she can write each FUR a personal thank you note. Our pack sends Big Licks, Butt Wiggles and Meows to each of you!

We’d like to report that Precious is eating, drinking and taking care of her business. We are so pleased! She has the glittery sparkle back in those deep large green eyes. Amazing what a mega dose of big gun antibiotics can do to knock an infection back and break a fever. Of course, this only helped the old kitty, because, WE HAD ALL THOSE POWERFUL PRAYERS IN OUR CORNER. BTW- Gpa was most upset that he didn’t know she had been bitten….Since, she spends her evenings on his lap snoozing….
He wonders which mature barn kitty had the kahoonas to take the Queen of the Ponderosa On?????

Shaving one’s hip and part of their tail makes things look worse than they are….The two 1” incisions are nasty looking. They are still draining which is good. They do not stitch them up, so they will drain and heal from the inside out….Choosing to use a shot of antibiotics instead of daily pills for 10 days. Takes the infection down faster…..Also, Precious is a stinker even with a pill popper, when it comes to oral meds….We have pictures to post as soon as we can work it into our day.

By bedtime last night…she knew, she was home. She was thirsty and hungry. We gave her a little water and food. She spent the night curled up on the loveseat in the sunroom.
Her appetite isn’t normal (usually that of a LION!) but she is eating….

She is upset with Gma because, Gma has her contained in the Sunroom. (14x20) She can not roam the house with the drainage. We will have a good size mess in the Sunroom in a few days. Either this or sit in the medium size dog crate… She Hates to be Crated! She can’t go into the dirty cattle room due to the open wounds….She wants in there to climb up into the open rafters and sit in the fiberglass insulation. Gma thinks fiberglass in those wounds would cause new problems. She is not pleased with Gma! Gma also wants Mazy to let her rest and take it easy. Mazy is mad because the door on the Sunroom is shut.
Gma said, “it is better that Precious and Mazy, be Upset with Her than with Grandpa…” You know the Momma figure, always has to be the bad guy, when it comes to the unpleasant stuff….

I’m a little extra WARM due to the closed door….which allows more heat to stay in the Entry which is my bedroom. However, this old gal knows, nothing is done in this House without a Good Reason…. It was 39 for the high today. I laid on the back steps awhile to cool off! Freezing Rain Tonight!!!! Will Winter Ever End? Still lots of snow on the ground…. Gpa has been trying to sell beef calves for weeks and weeks…. The weather and breakdowns keep the job from being done. This family is a bunch of tough old birds….Just like Timex watches…Stomp on them and they keep right on ticking!!!
What Awesome Pawsome Pals We have! Love You All…..Kisses, Old Baby

I am a beauty...look at what a couple clicks did to my everyday picture.... I like it!


Rough Night, No Power and Bloody Nose....

March 24th 2011 2:33 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Eight inches of snow followed the freezing rain. We lost our power for 17 hours. Precious, Mazy and this Old Pupper All had different issues with the storm. I was having trouble getting outside to potty. Due to the icy landing and blowing snow. I couldn't was so pitch black! Gpa held a big cattle flashlight up to help me...

I always have a nightlight in the entry and the sunroom has two large plant lights. I settled into my soft bed and went to sleep. I couldn't see a thing! I napped awhile,then I woke up! I didn't know where I was?????
I let out a yelp! Gma found me stumbling around the kitchen...
I had banged my nose on a dining room chair! That's why I yelped! Gma didn't know that until morning...when they found, I had a bloody nose! A small trail of blood droplets on the floor. Nothing major... The dark and my cataracts frightened me....
Gma heard me, cry out... she guided me back to my bed with flashlight. I stayed there until morning...It was chilly in the house by morning,about 50.... The wind howled and the snow blew all night long!

Mazy, however was really afraid! She yapped at the harsh wind. She barked, when I was stumbling around very lost and confused! She jumped in and out of the big bed All night long! She'd nap and then think, she heard something...Jump up,go prowling in the dark...See what was after her?????? Precious settled into the loveseat and slept through most of the storm.

We were warm enough...No one had a good nights rest! Gma and Gpa were awakened by the Mazy and the storm! Precious and her cat vision just laughed at Mazy and I....I didn't laugh at her when she had a bellyache for two days. Boy she has some Big
Cat Attitude!

The rest of the week is: breezy,snow flurries, 20's with partly sunny... I wonder if, all those geese want to turn around and head south, again?????????? I'm still watching for spring... Alot of snow still on our ground. Even after all the melting last week. The almanac says, a couple storms in April for our part of the Prairie....So, Great-grandma told US.... We wish she had her keep that a secret!

Some of my pals in Missouri are mowing their lawns!!!! Green grass! I wanna smell green grass,again!!! Great Grandma has blooming daffodils in Indiana (all their snow left)...Gma and I are doing our Best to make another winter.... Both of us are showing some slight winter burn-out! The time change has been real hard on us this year. We think, it is because it is still way too wintery ????

The pack here is gathered around the Puter....So, we are going to check out what all our pals have been up too? I'm hoping everyone has wonderful spring stories to tell....
Hugs, Baby


Thunder, When You have Sleet???????????

March 22nd 2011 3:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Now, we are a couple days into the calendar season of Spring....
The geese that started showing up a week ago...Must be really confused??????? Last week, after the clean-up from the blizzard: The weather turned very springy! The temperatures warmed up into the 40's. One day it was almost 50... We had sunshine! The county road dried off...Giving Gma and Mazy a place for outside walking. Since the ranchyard is a mix of slush,dirty snowbanks,icy waterholes,mudholes and other assorted sloppy stuff!

Then those silly weather persons started spouting off about another winter storm.... The wind arrived late yesterday afternoon. Blew and pounded all night long. We woke up to rain sprinkles and dropping temperatures. Freezing rain combined with sleet most of the day. This afternoon we had some major thundering noise, while it was sleeting.... This old gal sure doesn't understand this combo of weather????

My landing and steps, along with the patio are ALL iced up! My old ears and nerves have to listen to those Thunder-boomers! I HATE THUNDER!!!!!!!!!! Reminds me of the TORNADO in 1999....
Now the icy rainy stuff has stopped and we are having fine snow. This storm is suppose to last until Wednesday evening.... Who knows?????? Nothing is normal anymore!

I just know that Everyone is so burnt out on WINTER.... We have had snowcover that stayed, since 1 st. week in November. The snow in October did melt off... We are ready for lots of sunshine and warm days. All this ugly,dirty wet stuff to dry up and go away!

I'm being very careful, as I slowly toodle across the icy patio to do my business. Thank goodness the thunder-boomers have stopped! I sure Hope, they are gone???? They cause this old pupper to have anxiety attacks...I guess this is all the news I have.....I did enjoy sunning myself those couple nice days!

Off to catch a Nap before supper... I was given roast beef for lunch! I washed my bowl, clean as any dishwasher could ever do! Grandma made a big pot of vegetable beef barley soup for lunch... She had way to much leftover roast beef.... Thank goodness, I was here to help her out! Grandpa gave me a piece of fresh biscuit with strawberry jam....There are PERKS to being a senior,senior,senior pupper!!!!!

Sure Hope my pals are having better weather than we are??????
BTW-The children involved in the school bus accidents during the blizzard will all be a 100%...... They had cuts, scratches, bruises and a couple broken bones... but they were minor injuries.
Hugs, Baby
