Ok, so you pups know that Mommy and Daddy went to My farm in Cowlorado. It was over Labor Day and Mommy says they sure did that. They cleaned out the old shack where the gramma and grampa lived. They took loads of stuff to the dump and the salvage yard and Daddy even burneded sum of the junk.
Anywho. They sleeped in our camp trailer deal. Daddy set it all up nice under sum shade trees. Next to one of the cow pasture places. And the old barn.
Now there was deer neighbors there. They wander 'round the neighborhood munchin on apples and other fruit tree yummies. They aren't too skeered of peepoles.
Mommy and Daddy saw several lady deers otherwise known as does.
There were a few smaller deers, fawns, but they didn't have the spots on their backs. They had grown outta those.
And then there were a gang of man deers, othewise known as bucks.
They would stroll around the place, even snoozin in a lean-to on the old barn. There were sum big guys. One of them had his antlers growin way up in the air. Mommy called him Tallman. The big guys would snoop out the area first, followed by guys with smaller antlers. Then there would be the younger guys, spikes bringin up the rear.
Now here is where my contest comes in. One mornin Mommy and Daddy counted a bunch of the guys, bucks and spikes. They hung out in a man pack.
What I wanna know is:
How many of the guy deers did Mommy and Daddy see that one mornin?
Take your guess. One guess per pup please. The contest will run for a few days.
I will send a rosette to the pup who guesses the correct number!
I'll even give you a hint. The number is less than 20.
Take a guess!

You've never seen 2 more happy dogs than when Sissor let us out last evenin and Mommy and Daddy were pullin the drive!
Major Zoomie time, lemme tell ya! Mommy even told me she missed me! And that I look skinny!
See Sissor, you didn't feed me enough stuff!
Anywho, Mommy said they worked and got sweaty and stinky and could only take lil short showers in the camper trailer.
There is a big pile laundry that Mommy started workin on right away.
I gotta snoopervise that so I will bark in more later.
We are even thinkin up a lil contest for you pups 'bout sumfin at my Cowlorado farm.
More on that later!

Trapped. Trapped in my own home! Lemme tell you 'bout it.
Coupla days ago, Scissor was watering the grass in the backyard. I don't know what the big deal is, but she was so concerned about getting Every Little Spot watered. So, she set up a big ol' sprinkler so it was spraying all over one of my Bark Spots. But that wasn't enough for her! She also put one so it was shooting water on the back steps, so Tux and me couldn't even get to the yard! She left it there for hours, too. She kept trying to trick us into getting of the steps. She'd say in her excited voice, "Go on, pups! Now, while the sprinkler is facing the other direction. Go, go, go!" But I wasn't fooled! Nuh-uh, Scissor. No way I'm going out there to get my cute lil self all sprinkled on. Fiiinallyyy she moved it and I was able to get out. Man, I had to pee bad, and catch up on barking!
Aside from that, it's been pretty boring here. I bark at stuff, Scissor yells at me. I go outside, I come inside. I'm not getting nearly enough treats, but I'm sure Mother will make up for that when she gets back!

But Mommy and Daddy are leavin for My farm tomorrow. Right now, my farm don't have internet. Heck, it don't have 'lectricity or runnin water.
They will be campin in our lil camper for most of the nights. That is where they can cook and potty and stuff.
But they will stay in a couple of motel places and maybe Mommy can sneak on Dogster then. And Maybe, just Maybe I can con Sissor into typin for me to let you pups know I am doin alright. *If* I Am doin alright.
The worst part is I won't be readin your diary entries and commentin an' stuff. I'll miss you pups!
But, I'll be here. Barkin. You can count on that!

In My front yard! Need help here Peepoles! Can't get outta the back yard to chase the cow outta the front yard!
Yep, last evenin that was what happened at My place. Me and Tux was outside in our yard. We sent up serious Red Alert barkin. This Red Alert barkin sounds different than the usual school bus goin by or lil men movin irrigation pipe or sumfin like that.
I mean - There Was A Cow In My Front Yard! Holy poop! That calls for all out mega barkin!
So Daddy came out to see what the ruckus was. He started hollerin for the cow to get outta there. The cow went over there Away from our driveway.
No, cow, No!
Then I saw Mommy clappin her hands tellin Bossy to leave our yard. She clapped that cow outta our driveway. Mommy musta gone out the front door. Then Sissor came out to help Mommy close our gate so's that cow couldn't come back.
Meanwhile, I dug my dum phone outta my secret pocket. :-). I called the sheriff. Told him to come put the cow back where she belonged. He said, "Thanks Zoe for lettin me know. I'll be right there."
That's what he did. We barked at him while he put the cow back into her pasture. :-)
It is great to be Me here in my lil corner of Idunno!

Yeah, Happy Birthday to my human Sissor. And you pups that have heard me bark 'bout her know she didn't get me nuthin. Shoot, maybe I should give her sum pocket lint. Anywho, have a furtastic birthday, Sissor! Really. I am bein sincere here.
I gotta be nice to her. I found out that Mommy and Daddy are gonna be leavin. Sissor is gonna pet-sit on us while they are gone. They are goin to My farm in Colorado. It's a quick trip, otherwise Mommy would like to drive down to visit with those pawsome pups:
Coco Rose and
That will have to be another time. Another trip when they have more time without havin so much scheduled to get done.
You pups 'member that when Daddy gets toadally tired from his job in a couple days or years, we are all gonna move to My farm in Colorado? The place needs Lots of cleanin up and it needs a house with a bathroom and it needs a fenced yard for us to keep safe from the critters that would like to eat us. It needs sum other stuff that I need to let Mommy and Daddy take care of afore I move there.
So I will stay home, takin care of stuff from OP Zoe. And I need to make a to-do list for Sissor. You know, so's she knows to feed me a ton of food lots of times a day. And to give me Great Big cookies efurrytime I go out and then come in. Not the lil crums that Mommy gives us. And I think Sissor should take me for a ride and get me a kiddie cone at the drive-in place. And a strawberry shake. And a burger. And fries! I don't think she knows 'bout the whole pantiesaretigthus tummy ache thing that we get from eatin greasy foods. Don't tell her!
Like I said, I need to be nice to Sissor. I may even let her write me a diary entry or two.
Happy Birthday Sissor.

Argh! Mommy grabbed me again. Started up the clipper dealies. Cutted off half of my hairs on one side o' my cute fuzzy body.
I got to take a break cuz the clippers get hot. Gotta let them cool off.
Then she grabbed me again. This time Daddy got me in a head lock while she clipped sum more. Then they both clamped onto me. Daddy cutted on my beard. Had sum snaggles in there. Then he kept on cuttin. First one side then the other. I probly look like I am snearin, my beard is that crooked.
Then Mommy cutted my other body side with the clippers.
I am outside again takin a break. Lookin for a place to hide.
They still need to finish my tummy, face and ears.
No! Not the ears!
And then I think I will be drownded.
What a life, what a miserable life. Woe is me.

Ugh! This afternoon Mommy grabbed me, threw me on the washer/dryer place and commenced cutting the hairs offa my eyebrows and leggies and tummy. Then she cutted off my toenails. At least she didn't make me bleed none.
And tomorrow she is gonna use the clipper dealies on the rest of my cute fuzzy lil body. And I'll get drownded.

It's been non-stop barkin at my place!
The lil men who move the irrigation pipe next to My place.
The lil men who move the irrigation pipe across the road from My place.
Various pickemup trucks.
Even Daddy and another soldier pulled in, in a big brown pickemup truck. We ran outside to bark 'em up good. They musta gone in the front door 'cause then we got to go in and we Knew they had been there. Then we got to go out again and bark the truck as they pulled out. Daddy beeped the horn at Me.
Man o' man. Our tongues are flappin! We need water!
Mommy and Sissor are gettin tired of hollerin at us to be quiet!
I'm gonna go take a break now.

Daddy's home! All is right in My world!
He pulled in yeserday and Mommy even let me out of the gate to go greet him!
I was one happy pup, let me tell you!
I didn't even get the zoomies much, well, maybe mini-zoomies. I just wanted to be with Daddy and have him scritch my tummy.
And maybe today I can even help when he gets all of him soldier stuff out of his car. I will fur sure give it a good sniffin. It should be all kinda smells like dirt, dust, kangaroo rats, scorpions (:-0), sweaty clothes and oh, just wunnerful stuff!
On a side note. I never have to be groomed/tortured ever again!
Well, at least until Oct. 1. The groomer/torture lady isn't workin 'til then.
Ok, so Mommy will either try to find sumone else or it'll be one of those DIY jobs. Uh-oh!
