Today is day 4 on the Dogster Diary of Day loop. I am feeling dizzy and a little disoriented.
Yesterday I helped mom flush out some critters that were burrowing under some of the trees in the yard and then we went into the now fenced garden area. While mom weeded, I captured a critter that was lurking in the horseradish and then another critter that was hiding out in the rhubarb patch. No critter is safe from The Bud!
It has been really smoky outside of late and the smoke is coming from forest fires way up in the Northwest Territories. Because of the smoke, we are only outside until mom's eyes start to burn and then we come in.
Today I hope that my dizziness from being on the DDP loop will subside enough to let me flush out more critters!
I am thrilled that my pal, Lucas, is also a DDP today! Way to go Lucas!
Have a great day all.

BOL, well once again I am a Diary pick of the day. Also my pal Winkie is a diary pick today. Way to go, Winkie!
Well, I must confess I was bad yesterday.
I took myself on another walk about. At one point mom saw me walking down the road, she called me back and I did come to her. But then I mozied on over the riverbank, or that is what they think. No matter, the peeps could not find me, and I was not coming when called.
Then mom starting hearing vehicles and farm machinery coming down our gravel road and she got worried.
Her and dad got in the truck and went to look for me. They drove both directions up the main grid and did not find me and then followed the path into the neighbor's field. After not finding me there, they decided to turn around, and .... Well you see pups, when you try to turn around in a field that is now growing well, you don't really know where the bad spots are and ......
Well daddy came walking home quickly to get the tractor to go back and get the truck unstuck and that is when he found me around the back of the house. Dad just grabbed my collar and put me in the house while he got the tractor. Mom had been looking around the riverbank for me, and then headed back to the truck in order to help dad get the thing unstuck.
The peeps gave me the silent treatment all day so I know I was bad. I promise to be better today!

Hey, pups! Mom got another e-mail saying I am a Dogster Diary Pick today again, BOL! Thank you again, Dogster!
Well, not too much has happened since yesterday. While the peeps worked in the garden, I took myself exploring. Now what did the peeps do in the garden, you might ask? Well daddy planted 19 lilacs around the garden, hopefully this will eventually be a wind break, and mom is trying to catch up on the weeding after all the rain we have had. The weeds are currently taller than the vegetables, so mom was down on her hands and knees pulling the weeds from between the plants. Oh, I forgot, daddy also planted a columnar crabapple by the deck.
So while they were doing that, I took myself on an adventure, and when I was good and tired I came back and then I chilled (literally) in my swimming pool! Sorry, no pictures - I have such a bad momma. Oh, I should also mention that in an effort to keep the deer, rabbits and moose out of the garden, daddy built a wire fence around the whole garden, mom has moved my pool into that area and will also be moving my gazebo into the enclosed area. Note that the lilacs are inside this fenced area, so hopefully they will grow!
Later in the day the peeps took themselves out to a party without me. I was left to guard the house all alone and they didn't even turn on the radio for me! Something about an electrical storm outside and the reception on the radio was bad, pffft, whatever. They say they were only gone for 5 hours, but it felt like 5 days or weeks or months or something like that.
This morning, after I thought they had slept enough, hey, it was already 5:45 a.m.(!) I awakened mom with a cold, wet, nose in the eye! Yeah, I am nice like that! Then she took me outside and I chased a rabbit over the river bank. Fun!
A word of warning to other pups that want to chase rabbits over the river bank. River banks have wild rose bushes, and if you have longer hair like me, you get said wild rose bushes entangled in your hair. This especially hurts if it is in a sensitive area like your backside. Ask me how I know this. As I have longer hair, mom didn't see my predicament when I came in, or maybe she was just too tired! No matter. I pulled the offending rose branches off of my backside and I left them on the carpet for her to step on with her barefeet. She was quite appreciative of this!
Well, hope everyone has a good day and thanks again Dogster!
