Well I got my bath today. It's been a little longer than normal cause Dad usually does the bathing and Mom does all the grooming and hair trimming, nails and teeth. But Dad's knee is hurting real bad with a torn meniscus and he can't get down on his knees and Mom can't push on the side of the tubs cause of the arthritis in her ribs,so today Mom just stood in the tub with me or sat on the side. Dad helped do what he could and we all three looked like drowned rats! Then comes the going down to the family room to air dry. Mom put me on my grooming table and did a little grooming and trimming but most of that got put off until tomorrow! Boy do I smell good!!
Mom came up with a new contest/game that will begin on Monday and it could prove to be a lot of laughs! Hope it goes well. We start our 4th game of Bull's Eye on Monday too, furs seem to like that game pretty good. We've made some good friends on that game...some of the furs are hilarious! Gotta watch out for flying darts though or you could get an ear piercing that you weren't planning on, but it's still a lot of fun.
Tuesday Grama has her surgery. Mom & Dad will be gone to the hospital part of the day. I sure hope everything goes well. Daddy's Dad fell again and this time they had to put him in a nursing home to try and build up his strength, but he's acting real funny...well funny not in the laughing way. He's getting mean! Daddy's Mom is in the same nursing home with Alzheimer's. Getting old can really stink! Sometimes life is just so sad that you just don't know what to expect next.
Thanksgiving was fun for Mom & Dad, I couldn't go cause big dogs can't go in my human sister's house! It's in the rental agreement. Human sister thinks it's a really dumb rule, the dog can not go over 20lbs! I go WAY OVER 20lbs...4x, I weigh 80 lbs. Human sister said if it were and emergency I could go there, but Thanksgiving dinner wasn't an emergency! It was for me...I didn't get any turkey:o( But Mom gave me other treats, so I had a doggie Thanksgiving which isn't so bad since it was served up with a large dose of guilt cause Mom felt bad that I spent part of the day alone! hehehehehe
Well it looks like she's headed to bed finally, so go night my Dogster friends!

We've had extreme rain and some wind and we have been blinking on and off with the power, which makes it hard to stay in touch or update games. We're suppose to get more of the same tomorrow. We live out away for the city limits and we loose power when someone sneezes, we've been out for as long as 15 days...that's why we have a generator! So if you are playing any of the games that I host and I don't update as much as usual, it's because of the weather!
For those of you who have been praying for my Grama here's and update!
They have moved her cancer surgery up from late January to next Tuesday! She's pretty tired, she's had lots of surgery and procedures done the last couple weeks.
If you would like to see the face of the lady that you've been praying for look on my page and you'll see the 2nd picture with me and Grama at Easter! Isn't she cute? Thank you for all the prayers and words of encouragement that you've gave my family and I! We love you all!
Dad's says I gotta turn of the computer cause the wind is picking up again, so hopefully I'll see you all tomorrow!

I just found out that my friend Tosha is in serious trouble. She has nerve damage due to a neck injury from years ago and she is now loosing feeling in her back end and tonight can't get up. She's as sweet as pup as you'll ever meet. If anyone reads this diary post, please pray for my friend Tosha and her family! She is a part of Dogster and her number is 997175. She is a member of PNP and probably more. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!
It's so hard to let go of someone you love! Her Momma must be so sad to see her beloved pup go through this.
We love you Tosha & Mom!

Our family took a big sigh of relief...Grama had the surgery and everything looks better than they expected! Now we just have to wait to see when they are going to do the cancer surgery! Waiting is the worst!
I helped Dad put new knobs on the tub today, our bathroom is kinda small so he said I could just supervise from the hallway...which I did! And I did a good job of supervising! Nothing went right and he had to make like 5 tips to Lowe's! Poor Dad, plumbing is not his thing! He can do anything with wood, even made a musical instrument called a dulcimer! It's sounds different than his guitar's or mandolin or his violin! Mom says it sounds more twangy, but it's a pretty twang! BOL He likes to carve wood too, I watch.
My Grampa & Grama will come to our house and Grampa brings his guitar and he and Dad will play and Grampa & Momma sings. I love music, so I go get one of my stuffed animals that squeaks and play with them. They all think this is sooo amazing...like I'm dumb or something. I like playing my stuffies with them, it sound pretty and I want to be a part of everything they do, so I play my stuffies. They all laugh like it's the 1st time they've ever seen me do it...now who's dumb, I do it every time they play! My human sister plays the guitar and sings too. I guess we're just a musical family!
Well, Momma's headin towards bed, so Goodnight all you Dogster Furs!

Momma & Daddy are both real tired. They spent most of the day at the hospital with Grama. She needed the doctor to go and run a test to see if the lung cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. They'll find out the results on Wednesday and then Friday the heart doctor has to put in a stint for a blocked artery so the lung doctor can take out part of 1 lung and try to get all of the cancer. Grama seemed happy that this part was done! I don't blame her.
I haven't been able to go see her yet, but I think I could help! She loves me and loves to pet me...I know I can help her. I make her and Granpa laugh and smile!
I don't like it when everybody's gone, I get bored so all I do is throw my stuffed Bear around a while and then sleep. I don't eat or drink while the folks are gone, just in case they need to be gone a long time. I don't want no accidents!
When the phone rings a lady comes on and tells me who is calling, not that I care. I can't talk on the phone or be on the computer when no one's home! One time I ordered Chinese food, just once and they just can't seem to let it go! I was hungry and wanted some fried rice. What else could I do? When ya want fried rice you order fried rice! I only ordered enough for 1!
Momma's doctor said "No More Staying Up All Night" she said "ok" I say "likely story!" Oops just to prove me wrong she's going to bed, well ok if that's what it takes! Guess we're going to bed...lets see how long she stays there! LOL I'm so funny, I just crack myself up!
Nighty Night Pups and Purss, sleep tight! I won't say the rest of that saying...I don't like bugs and or poop!

Yea! Mom has NO where she has to go today and we get to go to Home Depot tonight! I have peeps there, hehehe they love me. When I go with them, Mom just has to give up on shopping and lets Dad do it while she talks with all the people who want to know about me! I get all the attention, hugs, snuggles that I can handle. My fur is really soft and even people who don't like dogs (can you imagine...not liking dogs?) anyway, even they have to touch me and once they touch me it's all over!
The only bad thing that has ever happened there is the little dogs who sneak attack my backside. I think they want to act strong cause their so little and could get hurt easily, but they kinda scare me know. The last one jumped out of their cart and was hanging on to my tail. Mom said it looked funny, but I wasn't laughing! I want to be their friend, but I don't like having someone try and bite me.
My human sister has a little dog,Hennessy, and I ran from him so he chased me all over our 2 1/2 acres, I got lots of exercise, but I'm trying to trust him but he's little and when I went to his house (I was invited by my human sister & her family) Hennessy growled at me the whole time. I ended up sitting on my Mom's lap for most of the time. Yes, I do sit on my Mom & Dad's lap and yes I weigh almost 80 lbs but I'm a cuddly girl, and what girl wouldn't go to their Mom if someone growled at them? Anyway, I hope we can get through the growling thing and become friends!

Momma has been getting some heat about the pictures of me at the ocean."I thought you loved your dog, you let her go in the water and run around on the beach with no leash..." Folks who know our beaches here in Washington know that there is a lot of traffic down on the beach as well as the under currents that can take you out to sea! Well, Momma had a retractable leash on me...I don't go off of our 2 1/2 acres without being on a leash, including running around on the beach and playing in the water. She erased the leash so the picture looks better.She would NEVER let me go in the water without being attached to her. So now the secret is out and the heat should cool down...BOL
We stayed up late tonight to get the 2nd Bull's Eye game all set up to start tomorrow. We're having tons of fun with it and the pups & kittys seem to enjoy it. Furs with darts...only on Dogster! hehehehehe! Gotta love Dogster!
Well, the game is set and Momma's tired so Goodnight,and God bless and keep you all safe and sound. We are praying for all the pets and their humans back East!

Mom's back doing the things she loves to do after getting sick and sleeping for like 4 days! Dad says it was stress, but who knows! The GOOD NEWS is Dad's doctor told him that he tore his meniscus, which happens a lot, but they're going to try physical therapy first. Mom and Dad are both very happy about that! Mom needs to have surgery on her hand, but wants to wait till we find out more about what they're going to do to help Grama. The bad news is Grama's cancer is not the slow growing kind, in fact she has 2 different kinds of cancer in her lung. She worked at a ski manufacturing plant and breathed in tons for chemicals years ago, but who knows why some people get cancer. It just stinks that they as well as their pets do get it! Now we just have to wait and see what all the doctors say is the best treatment. Waiting is NO FUN!
I think this is a job for me...Grama loves me and I think she needs a healthy dose of The Golden Doodle Dandi! I think we are going to have them out to dinner or maybe just drop in with me in tow. Us dogs and kitty's don't realize how much joy we bring to those that we love and I love my Grama! She always says what a good girl I am and that I'm the best dog she's ever seen, and she's seen a lot of good pups in her time!Grampa says the same thing...it kinda makes me blush, but I love it! Maybe Mom & I should bake up something yummy to take with us! Lemon Cup Cakes, yea that's what we need, Lemon Cuppy Cakes!
Well, Momma has a doctors appointment tomorrow so she said it's time to close up the computer and go to bed. Maybe I'll dream about those Lemon Cuppy Cakes, hhmmmm sweet dreams all my fur friends! Oh and sweet dreams to your humans too!

Mom, Dad & I have been watching the news and that storm has us just like everyone else concerned. We have many Dogster friends and family friends that are living in harms way. We are praying for the safety of all who are dealing with that storm. We will probably have a lot of Dogster pups without power. When we had a really bad storm here last year we lost power and phone, even cell phones for days. Luckily we have a generator, but many don't. We'll just keep praying, that's all we can do for now.
My 2 games that I do for Pups N Purrs are going well, I really enjoy doing them. It's a great group!
Pam, Flicka's Mom helped me with my page, she has helped so many of us. I know for me it's been a life saver! She did my page months ago and then just here last week I wanted a change so she walked me through the steps and it worked. She's always telling Mom to breathe, I think Mom does hold her breath when somethings not working! Anyway it's great to be able to do my page now, I'm sure I'll get stuck again, but there's always some nice Pups Mom or Dad willing to help out. So to all of the helpers of the code THANK YOU!

Here it is the 4th day in a row, Mom can't sleep, she's hurting too bad. Dad hurt his knee last night so Mom took him to see his doctor. They said he'll probably need surgery. She taking him to get a MRI today! Poor Daddy, he's in a lot of pain, can't walk without a cane or Mom's help.
Mom found out today that none of Grama's doctors have even talked, let alone thought about what treatment she needs! Mom is very angry, she hates how some doctors treat older folks! Like there not important...well she's important to US! Mom's trying to get Grama to let her go to the appointments but Grama says no cause Mom's hurting so bad.
I cuddle with Mom a lot and that makes her feel better. This may sound silly, by I talk Wookie! Like the big, hairy guy in Star Wars. When I talk to Mom & Dad it always helps. It's my secret weapon...well it was a secret until just now :o)) Mom started her new game on Pup N Purrs and it seems to be going well. Good pups, purrs and people at Pups N Purrs. You should check it out! There are a lot of good groups at dogster. Mom has made friends with some, like Pam & Mer. They have both taught Mom so much. Without their teaching her she could never do what she's doing. We are very grateful for all the furs who have helped us...too many to count!
Mom loves to come up and work on her games and things on dogster. It gives her a break. There are so many kind furs here. Wish we could all get together and have a play date! Man, that would be fun. I could just see it...dogs of every breed, purebred or mutt, all playing together. HHMMMMM maybe the humans should take a lesson from us. I don't mean they should go sniffing someones bottom, but just the fact that animals seem to get along better than some people!
Mom's been going outside with me when the rain stops and we play ball. I LOVE balls, Mom calls me her big BALL HOG! We didn't get to go out today cause she was too busy :o( Maybe we can go play tomorrow!
Opps, looks like she's finally going to bed, so I gotta run. To all who reads this diary entry...thanks for listening, we really appreciate all of you!
Good Night...well morning
