Here is the newest dogster tag-being loved!

Pick 3 dogsters you think are really pawriffic and paw a little about why!let them know how much they are loved with a rosette or a p mail!

I picked:

Murphy - because you're such a special guy to your mom, and because you're such a good friend to me!

Duncan - because you're the Champ and always so caring & kind to everyone on Schnauzer's Rule!

Gibbon - you've been Love Tagged because you're one of the kindest supportive dogs I've met in the Card Shower Gang!"

Of course I also pick Annie, Molly & Finnegan!

Let's spread the love!


Life at home!

It's been really hot here - up to 106 degrees! Mom gets in the pool a lot when that happens and doesn't take us for a lot of walks. We have to get up early for 1, then live in air conditioning - yuck. It gets too hot to walk on the ground. I do float around for a little bit on a raft with mom in the pool. It has mesh in the bottom so I'm sitting in the water & staying cool. I like floating, just not swimming!!!

I like hammocks, and canoes and strolls on the beach - BOL - sounds like a single's ad for a boyfriend. But no thank you!!! I'm a happy, content mature woman who loves mom & dad's attention. I put up with that smelly Finnegan who got sprayed by a skunk a couple nights ago, and Molly is a good kid. I like being the Queen of the House though. Don't need a King. Boy, I'm really bored & don't get out enough when it's hot - BOL!!! Just keep those treats coming, mom!


Wow you go away on vacation & so much happens!

So many things happened while mom & dad went on vacation & I couldn't get to the computer!!! Murphy went home from the hospital & is doing well. Charley got a new baby brother Fritz. Milly started her new diabetic medicine and is feeling better. Duncan earned his C-ATCH. That stands for CPE (Canine Performance Events) Agility Team Champion. Cadence Girl finished her heartworm treatment & started a new group called Mini Schnauzer Mania. Louisiana Asher's brother Rudy joined his new family 2 weeks ago but died this past weekend - so sad. But you know what? No matter what, we are always here for each other. To celebrate accomplishments & milestones, to welcome our new pups, to problem solve issues, to share a laugh, to support one another through illness, to grieve when one of us crosses the rainbow bridge. I've never "met" a better group of pups & parents! Lucy's mom stated it so well in our Schnauzer's Rule group when she thanked Rudy for reminding us. No competition, no judgment. Just here. Thank you to everyone!

Wow - I've been blogged on Joy's Cool Canine News Blog! This is very cool news! s-mom-barks-in-about-worldwide-support-and-strength/#more-39 94

Only thing is mom is referred to as my "furmom" - BOL...she's taught me a lot of things & take good care of me, but she's not that furry!!!

Anyway, my Valentine Murphy is in the hospital with pancreatitis. I'm SO scared, but the schnauzer group is saying prayers & keeping our paws crossed. He made it through the night, which is good news. We'll keep up the prayers for him! Hugs to his family.


Community Engagement

My mom & I have recently become administrators in 2 groups:
» ~*Card Shower Gang*~

» Senior Dogs Club

Mom had the need to "do something" for others going through times when they needed support or when they wanted to celebrate. We lost our sister Annie last November and went through a lot of grieving. During that time she learned information from dog trainers, other pawrents, websites and dogster groups that helped us through it. She wanted to share that with others. But she likes celebrating the good times too.

So she joined the Card Shower Gang: Spreading love & joy one card at a time! Sending cards to those that are sick, passed on to the rainbow bridge, birthday, need cheering up etc! She became the official greeter for new members, and that's how she became admin.

Then because I'm a "SENIOR" dog now, mom always wants to make sure my unique needs are met. Recently having 2 senior dogs with health issues who crossed the rainbow bridge in the past 1-1/2 years, she wants to learn & share about these issues. Blackie, the admin, had a great feature posting Tips. That's when she asked Blackie from the Senior Dogs Club if she could add Senior Health Tips. So that's when she became an admin. She's hoping to eventually stimulate discussions with it. With so many dogs joining that group, she's hoping that everyone will start asking questions and sharing their knowledge & stories.

Mom feels that dogster gives her & us a lot. She feels a sense of community in learning to care for us, and feels it's our responsibility to give back to that community. She's not a know-it-all, just wants to help & learn. So she's got me working through what are supposed to be my "retirement" years. But she still lets us have fun in groups too!!! My favorite thing of course.... So I don't mind, if we can help 1 other pup or family, we're happy to do it!!!!

This is from my April entry when we lost Joker, our little schnauzer pal, and it has been proved again!

"It's overwhelming although these are people & dogs I have never met, but have dealt with so often through dogster. When I can step back from the pain, it's amazing to look at what has just occurred. We've created a network of love & support & strength across the world around a little pup. We're all helping each other through this. I'm sure there are not a lot of us who have ever personally met, but we feel as if we have a huge group of friends out there. This is a very powerful lesson."



Just a dog...

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog,"
or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog."

They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."

Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog,"
but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog,"
and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

"Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.

"Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.

Because of "just a dog", I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog", but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man or woman."

So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog"
just smile...
because they "just don't understand."

My friend Duncan tagged me!

Here are the rules:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

So here are 7 fun facts about Georgie....

I was born in Ft. Myers, Florida!

I was originally saved to show but turned out 1/2 inch too short!

I had a litter of 3 pups once!

I am very independent!

I march along the perimeter of the yard or any enclosed space at least once a day!

I am a master squirrel chaser!

I love to run free!

Now I tag the next 7 pups!

Jack Johnson ~ Talk Of The Town
(feat. Kawika Kahiapo)

I want to be where the talk of the town
Is about last night when the sun went down
And the trees all dance
And the warm wind blows in that same old sound
And the water below gives a gift to the sky
And the clouds give back every time they cry
And make the grass grow green beneath my toes
And if the sun comes out
I'll paint a picture all about
The colors I've been dreaming of
The hours just don't seem enough
To put it all together
Maybe it's as strange as it seems
And the trouble I find is that the trouble finds me
It's a part of my mind it begins with a dream
And a feeling I get when I look and I see
That this world is a puzzle, I'll find all of the pieces
And put it all together, and then I'll rearrange it
I'll follow it forever
Always be as strange as it seems
Nobody ever told me not to try
And the water below gives a gift to the sky
And the clouds give back every time they cry
And make the grass grow green beneath my toes
And if the sun comes out
I'm going to paint a picture all about
The colors I've been dreaming of
The hours just don't seem enough
To put it all together
Always be as strange as it seems
