It's a good thing we are all early mornin pups and peeps 'round here. Mommy is havin her crappy tunnel surgeried tomorrow mornin at 6:30. She made sure she asked the lady a.m. or p.m.
So us pups will get to eat earlier than regular so's that Daddy and Mommy can get to the horsespital in time.
Oh yeah, I don't know when I will be able to bark at you pals. Mommy has sum lame xcuse 'bout havin a bandage on her wrist place. And maybe not feelin like doin much for an hour or so. Humph.
But I will bark when I can and I will be readin your diary entries and comments and stuff.
I will also bark EXTRA LOUD at school buses, lil men movin irrigation pipe, peepoles walkin, ridin, or otherwise goin past my place and all the other usual stuff I bark at. You will be able to hear me and know I am ok.

First off, gotta bark Big Condogumations to our buddy Hammy, or as we should probly call him Mayor Hammish McDuff. Yep, tomorrow is a big day for Hammy. He got (with a bunch of our help) voted to be mayor du jour of his fair city. Conwags Hammy!
Now on to the borin-ness 'round here.
You pups know that I have 2 skinsibs. They are both old and can take care of themselves and all so they don't live here no more.
Sure nuff, Brother has a birthday comin up. He is gonna be 21. All legal.
We sent him sum plastic storage containers. Just what a 21 year old single guy wants and needs, huh? Axfurly, he asked for them. :-/ And sum geeky t-shirts too. And books. We didn't send those.
And then Sissor is commencin, gradumatatin, sumfin from her 4 year university. She already has a 2 year degree from sum other school. She is needin a bit of a break so's she gonna go work up in Jellystone National Park again this summer or maybe furever if she don't get a Real job. Yep, she is gonna be turnin the big wheel for Old Faithful to go on and off. Or maybe she can get promoted to groomin bison. Or makin sure all the bubblin hot pools and mud pots are the right temperature and have the right kinda bad smells. Whatever.
Then, if she gets a Real job and doesn't work at Jellystone the rest of her life or maybe move into our basement, she wants to get a pet-friendly apartment. And adopt a cat. Or twelve. And knit. She sent this picture to Mommy saying this will be what she is like in just awhile:
*sigh* I love my family but what can I do?
And then, my typist Might be outta commission for a few days. Next Toosday, she is gonna get surgery-ized for sum crappy tunnel on her left wrist. She will still be able to use the mousie to point and click but as far as typin, well, unlike sum secamateries that Hunt and Peck;-), my typist uses both hands. On the home row even. So she may not be able to take my dictation for a hour or day or while. She is plannin on milkin bein outta commission, so we shall see. Bol!
Maybe I can get Daddy to help me bark in until Mommy comes to. :-0
That's 'bout it in my lil corner of the world.
Keep calm and bark at evfurrything!

The birdies is singin. The sun is shinin.
Mommy says when she was a lil girl, she would make lil paper baskets and put flowers in them on May Day. Then she would put them on neighbors' doors, knock and run. A nice lil surprise.
Nuthin like that will happen here.
We woke up to snow on the ground.

We had a big bowl for our water. Mommy was gettin tired of havin to refill it a bunch o' times all day long. She got sumfin kinda like this.
For a few days, she put the new water thingy and our old bowl close to each other. So's we would maybe try out the new water thingy. But still be able to get drinks in case we didn't like the new water thingy.
Then she took the old bowl away. So's now the new water thingy is all we have to drink outta. Three dogs and a bunch of kitties all drink outta that new water thingy.
Mommy and Daddy were eatin supper. I was standin there by the water thingy. Mommy thought I was skeered of the new water thingy.
It was makin big bubbles and glurg sounds when the water was refillin the dish part where we get out drinks.
I wasn't skeered. Just leery. A good security dog is always leery of new stuff.

Way back the last time I got groomed/tortured the groomer/torturer did sumfin bad to my tookus. I even barked to you pups 'bout it in my diary.
I did Finally get over feelin the badness on my cute lil patoot.
Now the horror has started again.
I am eatin. I am poopin. I am barkin. Not as much as usual so that shows that sumfin is definitely wrong with me.
But evfurry now and then, I just gotta run 'round 'cause my bobbim is buggin me. It makes me crazy.
Sumtimes I just let Tux bark outside and not bother to go join him.
I don't know why I have to keep goin back to the groomer/torture (mostly torture) place.
And then there is the whole stinkin poodle feet I gots.
I gotta go lay down.

I should be alright. Sumtime.
And there is no sympathy round this place, lemme tell ya.
Well, ok, so Mommy is watchin me. Talkin nicey-nice to me.
I did eat my breakfast and I am eatin cookies when she offers them to me.
But I am just not "right". Yes, I am barkin at the lil men workers in the white pick-up trucks and other stuff I normally bark at.
But I am just not "right". You know how that goes.
I haven't urka-gurkaed. Mommy hasn't seen me poop so she doesn't know what that looks like.
But I am just not "right".
She must think I will be fine by tomorrow.
I have to go to the groomer/torture place.
I am a tuff Schnauzer grrl. I will be alright.

Sorry Pals for not barkin for So long in my diary. I blame Mommy, my typist. I've got stuff to bark 'bout but she's in one of those moods. She even has a Grumpy Cat picture on her laptop background. It says sumfin like "I think I might be emotionally constipated. I haven't given a sh*t in days."
Plus we've had the "witer's bwock" as our pal Zaidie would put it.
And I have to live with this!
But I told Mommy to fix herself a nice cuppa and settle down to take sum dictation from Me. Our pal Fizzy even thought I was dead or sumfin since I hadn't barked in my diary in so long.
But I am ok! Even though Mommy has been mean at me. It is all her fault.
Lemme tell ya 'bout it.
You pups probly know that My laptop (ok, it's really Mommy's) is in Brother's room. He hasn't been here in a really long time. Wonder what happened to him. It's almost like he doesn't even live here anymore.
Hmm, oh, what I was sayin?
Right, and of the 3 bedrooms, it is the lil-est. It has a twin bed, a small desk and a bookshelf.
Well, Mommy moved the desk and bed, kinda swapped places. It is a win/win! She can see her computer screen without glare. I can sit on the bed and see out the window!
For sum reason, the bedroom is kinda echo-y.
When I let loose with a barkbarkbark it's good and loud and echo-y. Makes Mommy jump. That one nerve she woke up with? I get on it.
She even threw a pillow at me the other day. Didn't hurt or nuthin.
But she did tell me to "shut up".
That is sumfin she don't say very much. Oh yeah, she tells me to be quiet. Enough. Stop.
But she don't like to tell nobudy "shut up". 'Cept in real mergencies.
Didn't make me stop barkin of course. Nuthin can do that. And it's spring. Lots of goin's on in the field round my place. Plenty of stuff to bark at.
And there you have it. The reason I haven't been barkin in my diary.
It's my mean Mommy's fault.
I'll try to do a better job at keepin things up to date in my diary.

Thank you Pals! Thank you for all the eggies you sent to me and my furfamily too!
Mommy Finally discovered an easy way to send out the free eggies. After all these years on Dogster she realized how to click and send Lots of eggies all at the same time.
She catches on real fast. Duh.
I am plannin a quiet day. Mommy and Daddy will be doin sum yardwork. I will just lay 'round the yard. They will be out there so's I won't have to do any barkin if any bike riders, joggers or walkers go by. They will see the mailman so I will let them take care of gettin the mail.
They will be usin sum sharp yard tools for trimmin the shrubs. I will stay a safe distance away and not grab any of the trimmins to chew on.
They will be busy so's I won't bug them to go inside to give me any cookies.
Huh? Wha? Me? A Quiet day?
