So that bluzzard we had yeserday left all kinds of snow drifts all over. In the road. In our driveway. In My yard.
But not to worry. When I went outside this mornin, Daddy had shoveled trails for us out there in the yard. One trail went over to the poop bucket. You know, so that Mommy could get to the pooper scooper stuff. One trail went out to the chicken yard. So's Mommy could get to the chickens to see if they we doin alright. And Daddy had shoveled a couple of places, just for us pups. One along the fence and then it cuts back 'round to the chicken yard path. We can run 'round and pee and poop without gettin too much snow on our tummies.
Thank you Daddy!
Once this afternoon, Drover made his own path.
He went 'round behind some bushes where the snow wasn't so deep. But then he kept goin to where there was a deep drift. Me and Mommy saw him flounderin over there. We headed over. Mommy to help Drover. Me to tell him what a goof ball he was bein. Before we got to him, he pulled a 180 and got goin the not-so-much-snow way out. I met him over behind the bushes and gave him what-for for goin in the deep snow. He is a dum bunny sumtimes.
Now it's 'bout time for Daddy to be gettin home.

Woo Hoo! I am climbin back on the Diary Pick Loop-Dee-Loop! Two days in a row and I didn't even bark a new entry. Save those zealies Pals, times are tough and you need to stock pile. Don't spend 'em furvolussly on lil me.
It is dog gone cold here Pals. I don't recommend you comin for a visit until we get outta these negative temperatures. It is 'bout -10 right now and earlier it was 'bout -20 at My place.
But, and this is a good but, Daddy has scooped us more snow trails. Now all we have ta do is wander 'round and find the perfect spot to tinkle or poop. 'Course Tux has longer legs so's he gets off the trails to poop and then Mommy has to get off the trail to scoop.
Drover has been havin back end problems. The cold makes him not be able to walk and his back legs go all wonky. The peepoles sumtimes carry him up the back steps. He even went to the vet the other day. After lookin him over, the vet thought he had a New-row-lodge-ic-all problem and there isn't much they could do to help him. Sumtimes Drover is fine and plays and stuff. Sumtimes the back legs jus' don't work good like they should. And the vet did hear a heart murmur. But he asked if Drover had a cough, that kinda goes along with a heart murmur. No, Drover doesn't have a cough so that is good.
Anywhos that is what is happenin 'round My place.
Don't worry 'bout me, I am warm and cozy and I can always find sumfin to bark at.

Ok, so we go outside and come inside 'bout a gazillion times a day.
But if Mommy sees sum one pullin into our drive, we have to stay in. Unless it's the mailman. Then we go out to bark at him while she gets the package at the front door.
Yeserday, I told the guys I was goin out. Tux came along.
We headed out and to my surprise there was a pick-em-up truck turnin 'round in our drive! Then the guy even got out and started throwin out fire wood.
Do I even have to tell you?
We were all over that with our barkin. Jus' like flies on stink.
One of the trails that Daddy had shoveled for us was over by the fence next to the driveway. That way we could get over there without high-centerin in the deep snow.
Tux was layin down bark cover to keep the guy outta our yard. The guy stayed busy tossin out wood from his truck. I heard and saw a lil dog in the cab of the truck. He was barkin at me. I was barkin at him. I tol' him to stay in that truck and don't you dare get outta that truck.
He stayed in that truck.
Drover joined the fray sum time in there. I was too busy barkin to notice but it was good to have all 3 of us barkin. Gotta protect our place. That guy didn't have all his teeth. Can't trust sum body with missin teeth.
In a bit Tux tol' me Mommy was hollerin at us. "All dogs come!"
Don't give in Tux! We gotta keep up the defense!
But he gave up. The lure of the promised cookie was too strong. Drover gave up too. He is such a momma's boy.
I was left alone out there to defend the whole place!
That's when I did hear Mommy. She was callin to Me to come in an' get a cookie.
I decided that was enough barkin. It was cold out there anyways. I went in, got my cookie and started to bark again.
I barked good riddance to that guy when he pulled away.

It is still cold 'round my place. But that doesn't stop us from bein outside and providin security.
And even though it is still cold, the eye doctor jogger man and his big chocolate lab went past while we were outside early this mornin.
All 3 of us saw them comin along the road. Oh yeah, one of the other neighbor's dogs was joggin with them. So we had one jogger man and 2 dogs to bark at.
We were really goin at it.
'Specially when that big chocolate lab came runnin up to the fence, barkin and a-snarlin at the 3 of us. He made skid marks in the snow, he was comin so fast and the fence was right in front of him. Mommy was inside tappin hard on the window. The dog turned 'round to get back on the road. All 3 of us barkin skeered him off.
That or the jogger man called him to come back.
That's right, git offa my place.
We went in after that. It was still cold out there and we needed to warm up and clam down.
Daddy said that big chocolate lab looked like a big turd runnin down the road. :-0

'Member I barked 'bout Daddy shovelin a bunch of trails all over the backyard?
They are really comin in handy for us to run 'round on, wander and sniff and poop and pee.
We are usin them so much Mommy and Daddy decided to give the trails names.
When you come out the backdoor and down the steps, you can go left or right to cruise along the fence.
That is the longest path and most important for security work.
It is called Zoe Boulevard.
Now if you take a left at the bottom of the stairs onto Zoe Boulevard, you can then hang a right to get to Poop Place Park. It is a large open area to, well, poop.
We have Drover Drive. It kinda meanders 'round.
Then there is Tux Trail and that will take you out to Chicken Cul de sac.
If you take a right at the bottom of the stairs, Zoe Boulevard turns into Lilac Lane. Doesn't that sound nice? It has a poop pullout too.
I think Daddy should build sum road signs and maybe even put up sum traffic lights. If I wore clothes and junk I could be the traffic control dog. And give the other pets tickets. They could pay me in cookies.

I do love to bark at the deer neighbors. 'Course, I love to bark at anything.
The deer sleep in 'mongst the trees in the river bottom. They come out in the mornin to look for eats in the wheat fields and stuff.
My place is in their way from their comin and goin.
I bark at them. Comin and goin.
Last evenin there were a couple of those durn deer Right Over There. Just on the other side of My fence. Of course, I had to bark them away.
Problem was, Daddy hadn't shoveled a path over there on that side of the yard. Over there between some lilacs and other shrubs and the fence.
I had to plow through 'bout ten, no, make that hunnerd, foots of snow drifts.
If you don't think that takes talent to bark and plow si-mo-ta-nee-us-lee, then you needta think again.
I better ask Daddy to get to shovelin sum more. For me, his cute lil Schnauzer grrl.

We had snow and wind. Zoe Boulevard was gettin filled in. In fact, with all the new white stuff blowin 'round, it was hard to see any of our coolio trails that Daddy had shoveled for Me.
Yeserday, he got busy re-shovelin. We even got a couple new trails. One, Lilac Lane has been expanded. Now we just needta get offa the patio and take Lilac Lane over to the fence. It's a short deal, but the boys love to pee on the lilac.
Then, and this is Good, Daddy shoveled over there along the fence, behind the lilacs and sum other kinda shrubs so's I don't haveta plow through all the drifts if I needta bark at the deers.
And we got 'nother short trail to connect Tux Trail and Drover Drive.
I'd have Mommy take sum pictures to post on my page but the picture poster part of Dogster has sum major flea problems. And my captions haven't come back yet either. We are barkin to the Techno Dog 'bout it though.
Stay warm, dry and safe whereevfur you are.
And congrats to Pepper for havin the honor of Dog of the Week!

Peepoles got their traffic reports. The weather report. The ski report.
I'm gonna give ya My Trail Report.
Lot's goin on out there the past couple days. Sum of the trails got covered over by driftin snow. Daddy shoveled them out. He even made a couple new trails.
They got covered over. He shoveled them out again.
Today the trails are either gettin covered over again or meltin. Depends on the direction the trails run. The trails that are meltin are all the way down to the brown grass. Makes Mommy so happy when we come in and track brown pieces of grass all over the place. Gives her sumfin to do cleanin up the stuff.
The wind is blowin and the Chicken Culdesac is covered up again. We still plow through there. It's fun!
Daddy's gonna haveta get out there 'gain and clear out the trails.
