Have you pups evfur heard of a Dr. Seuss book called And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street? It's 'bout a kid who thinks up a whole bunch of stuff to tell his dad that he saw. The story grows and grows.
Nobuddy woulda believed the kid so in the end he decides to tell what he axfurly saw.
You may not believe what I Really did see on My road already this mornin. But of course, comin from me, you can believe it. I always bark the truth. And that's the truth.
So first thing, right off the bat, right after breakfast, a person went by. This person had rollers on the shoes on her feet. On those rollers were little short skies. She was roller-skiin or sumfin. Weird.
Then along with the usual trucks, farm equipment and joggers and their dogs I just saw a neighbor. This is the neighbor that has 2 LWDs! But this time the neighbor didn't have his LWDs. He was on his 4-wheeler. He had a long leash (lead rope) and on the end of the leash was a horse. I guess he was out walkin his horse.
I wonder what else I will see to bark at on My road today?
Ya just never know.
I gotta go. The neighbor on his 4-wheeler walkin his horse is comin back. I can hear the horse whinnyin!

Ok, enough with it. First Cindy gets the 'tention. Bunches of rosettes and stuff. Then Mr. Drover claims it's his birthday. He doesn't even Know when his birthday is, he was 'dopted. Ok, so it was his Gotcha Day. Back a hunnerd years or so ago he came to live here.
He got tons of messages and rosettes and special gifties.
Enough! He's taken down the birthday pic and gone back to bein a nome. No more birthday cuppy cake background. Enough, done, finished, all gone.
Can we focus on the Important One?
That would be ME!
I am still on guard duty on my Love-Seat-Look-Out-Perch. I am the Only one who barks at stuff sumtimes. I am the one who stirs up the guys if it is a Really Big security threat.
Let's face it. I am Daddy's Grrl. Top Dog. Head of Security. Chief Kitty Tush Sniffer. The Keeper of the Cookies. Ok, well, that would be Mommy, but I am the one who goes outside, turns around, comes in and sits nice. So's we can All have cookies. The boys haven't figured out that trick yet.
So let's focus evfurryone.
It's all about ME!

Evfurrything went fine with his Procedure. He's not 'sposed to drive or operate heavy machinery for 12 hours so he is stayin home.
But it's borin. He was gonna go for a walk. Too hot. And he still didn't want to get too far away from the indoor potty place.
So we are all bein like slugs and nappin.
Bark at ya later. Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers that Daddy would be fine. He is!

This is so great! Daddy is home, yeserday, today and tomorrow.
Lemme tell ya 'bout it.
Yeserday, Daddy had a dogtor 'pointment. He was gone a long time. But he didn't have to go to work. That's good.
This mornin, Daddy did go to work. But he was wearin sweat pants and a t-shirt, not his soldier uniform. And he will be comin back with a computer from work. He can work here at home and I can keep him company. I guess the work computer has better games on it than his computer here at home. :-/
He can't eat anything today. Only drink stuff. Clear liquids. Zaidie, please send a case of Bodka Dwips™. I'll pay you later.
And then he has some pills and some yucky stuff to drink. And he can't be far away from the indoor potty place. That's why he's not goin to work. He can take the work computer into the indoor potty place and not have any 'barrassin potty axidents.
Then tomorrow, Daddy goes to have sum Procedure. It's called a Ca-Lie-Doe-Scopee. Or maybe it's like Co-low-ne-al-scopee. I dunno. But then he will be home with Me! I bet he will play and play with me. :-)
Oh, and Mommy wants your folks to know, this is just a routine deal. But we would 'preciate your good thoughts and prayers.

You pups know I got lots of kitty cats 'round My place. I got 2 kitties that stay in the house alla time. I got one kitty that comes and goes. And there are 3 kitty cats that live in the garage and stay outside.
Mommy or Daddy goes out to tuck in those 3 garage cats in the evenings. They are like 9 years old and they don't go too far away. They even kinda hang out waitin to be tucked in.
Last night, Scooter, the one who really doesn't go very far away at all, wasn't anywhere to be found.
You shoulda seen my pawrents. Runnin 'round, wringin their hands. Not a clue 'bout what to do.
I told 'em to clam down. To go 'round our place and call for her. Told Mommy to check cross the road. Told Daddy to walk along the wheat field.
See, I figured sumfin probbly skeered her and she ran to hide. Coulda been sum boys walkin dogs. Coulda been one of these feral tom cats we get 'round here. Coulda been anything.
She didn't come when they were callin her. She didn't even show up when it was bedtime.
So when Tux needed out at very early o'clock, Daddy looked for her again.
Found her over under our garage lean-to thing. She was fine. Kinda wet like she had been in the tall grass 'round here. But fine.
Daddy put her in the garage, safe and sound.
These cats! See what I have to put up with 'round here?

'Cause I obey Daddy real good, well, almost real good, almost all the time, Me and Tux got to go on a No Leash At All walk.
Don't panic Pups. Daddy makes sure there are No vehicles comin on the road where we have to walk for 'bout a couple of feet. We went down to the field way down there by the river. Then we even took a side trip down to sum water by the neighbor's field.
We didn't see anything 'xcitin but as always there were tons of good smells to smell. We got a good workout. And a ton of cookies when we got back!
Here's hopin your day is great.

That's me! Whenever, whatever. I bark.
The other day, Me and Tux rushed outside to bark at a strange vehicle in the driveway. It stayed and stayed so we barked and barked. Even when it started to sprinkle and I 'bout got soaked to the bones, we stayed out there. Plus, nobudy would open the door and let us in.
Then 'nother day the mailman left 2 boxes on our front doorstep. Mommy and Daddy weren't home so us dogs had a Good time barkin at the mailman. So close!
And then yeserday the brown truck guy pulled in and Mommy carried in a big box. None of the stuff has been for me though. :-( Brother is sending some of his junk home from where ever he is. Fixin to come home for sumthin called "leave".
Also yeserday, 2 guys moved the irrigation pipe in the neighbor's field. We were inside then. Mommy was outside doin yard trimmin stuff. She could hear us all barkin at those guys. She was so proud.
And then again this mornin those guys came back to move the pipe again to a different spot. We were all outside then.
You know how it goes.
Good boy Drover (gag) went in right away when Mommy called "all dogs come". Tux deserted soon after. That left me out there to do all the barkin by my lil' self. But I can handle whatever comes along. It wasn't 'til those 2 hoodlum guys got barked way over there did I come in.
And I didn't even get a cookie.
And this is after a bad night. Mommy and Daddy had stayed up late watchin some TV program. I am talkin late, like 10:15! Shockin, huh?
Now usually my pawrents go to bed and go to sleep 'bout when their heads hit the pillows. Not last night. Mommy was yakkin it up sumfin fierce. Gah! I couldn't get to sleep! I jumped off the bed and they invited me back up. I got up. She wouldn't shut up. I jumped off the bed. They invited me back up. This went on and on. She just yakked and yakked.
YAKYAKYAKYAKYAK You know how it goes?
And it was dumb stuff she was yakkin 'bout.
Hmm, I jus' noticed that the word yak and bark have sum of the same letter. Anywho, she was yakkin 'bout nuthin!
She finally shut up and we could all get to sleep.
I hope I can grab sum good shut eye today. I have been one busy pup.

Mommy! Get up! Good grief. I have things to bark at!
Daddy fed us and Mommy slept and slept and slept.
When she finally came stumblin out to the livin room (pre-coffee stumblin) I was on the loveseat. Not my Love-Seat-Look-Out, just on the seat part. Daddy still had the blinds closed. Ya know, to keep me quiet. She said she thought Daddy had taped my mouth shut. :-0
Later Daddy made it up to me though. I got to go outside the wire with him to check on how much rain we've had. To see how wet the dirt was out there. He was hoping there was enough to help the weeds green back up, I guess.
Hey and big shout outs to Cleo, Fizzy, Hershey and Demon Flash Bandit! Congrats on your Diary Picks today! Treats all 'round!
We are havin our monsoon season. I don't like it. I Do Not like to get wet. Expect Notme to be visitin my place if the rain showers don't lay off.
In fact he did visit the other day. Me and Tux and Samcat and Mommy was downstairs. When we went upstairs, there was Drover-sized poop at the top of the stairs. Tsk, tsk, tsk. You pups think he is such a saint but he ain't! Bol!
Stay cool today Pups!

You pups know that I stay in guard/bark duty from the back of My Love-Seat-Look-Out. Sumtimes I stand up, when it is a big time thing to bark at. Sumtimes I relax up there if there is not much to bark at, or if I just need to let out a warnin bark evfurry now and then.
This mornin I jumped up there. Kinda slow this mornin so I coulda relaxed. But that durn SamCat had been messin with the blinds. He likes to get between the window and the blinds. He puts little cat nose prints on the windows. He likes to try to catch flys and junk.
He messed up the blinds. I had to stand there to do my warnin barks.
Like this Sorry that is so big but you get to see me nearly life-sized!
And Like this
And no matter how pitiful I looked Mommy wouldn't fix them
I had to stand up for hours to do my security work.
This afternoon we were all outside. I got the boys to barkin. We were all over in the corner of the yard barkin like crazy. Like there was sumfin goin along on the road.
Mommy couldn't see anything that we needed to bark at.
She walked over across the driveway to the fence over there. She pulled sum leaves offa the fence. She brought them over and waved them in my face. Rude.
I stopped barkin at the leaves then. I am just not 'preciated around here.

What could be wrong with me? Maybe I need sum professional help or sumfin.
This mornin, I was snoozing on Brother's bed. The bedroom window was wide open lettin in the fresh, cool, mornin breeze.
A kid rode by on his bicycle. He was singin in a high-pitched voice.
I didn't bark or pay him no 'ttention.
This afternoon, I was snoozin on My love-seat-look-out perch. The big ol' trash truck stopped and dumped our container into the big ol' trash truck.
I didn't bark or pay it no 'ttention.
It came back by My place in a couple minutes. I only raised my head to look out the window after it had already gone by. Ok, so the windows were closed and the AC thing was makin it's noise.
I am beginnin to wonder 'bout me. Could I have a hearin loss? Ya know, from all the barkin that goes on 'round here?
