Well Mom's back to painting after taking yesterday off. She went to have a short nap...16 hours later she woke up! I guess her body was trying to get back all of sleep she doesn't get. I never left her, well except when I needed to take a potty run. I sleep on her side of the bed on the floor. I have tons of beds and blankets that I use during the day, but at night I sleep by Mom. Mom & Dad are amazed at how intuitive I am. But it's really just a case of loving them.

Well I got my bath and Mom gave me a hair cut so feel very pretty and a little cooler since she cut more hair off this time. I love being groomed, I get my Mom all to myself and she talks to me the whole time. I can't tell anyone what she talks about...I'm a good secret keeper. Mom calls grooming me her therapy. I know that I'm a big dog...75lb-80lbs... but I'm still their lap dog. I know how to get up in their chair real careful so I don't hurt them. Once I'm on their lap it's time for a nap. Good thing they have recliners or I wouldn't fit.

Well, Moms headed back outside, I think she hears the paint calling her name!


WOW What I Was Missing

Well, here for the past few weeks everytime I tried to post things on dogster took FOREVER! Sometimes it just would not stop locking up the page and you had to leave and come back in and try again. Mom said if it didn't get fixed we might not play on dogster anymore cause it took way to long. Well Mom went to our groups and asked if anyone was having the same problem. None could be found but a nice lady named Pam (my Mom's name too) suggested that we change browsers to see if that helped. BOY did it ever help. Not only does the locking up pages seem to be a thing of the past but we never knew that there was a rubber duckie (other than mine) swimming in the pool or that the beach ball twirl. I even had some nice pup send me a gift and it just showed up as a black square box, figured that was just dogster fleas. My tennis balls are bouncing! Thank you Pam for always being able to help my Mom, cause she's a good Mom but not so swift on the computer. Oh well, a doodle can't have everything...wait, maybe I could with this new browser, hehehehehehe Thanks to all who answered Mom's distress call! We get to stay and play on dogster, YEA!

Tonight is bath night, I'm not crazy about the bath part, but when Dad tells me to get in the tub I do and he suds me all up. Then I go down and watch tv while I get my hair blown dry and tomorrow Mom will begin the grooming process. I really need tiding up! I love all the attention and lovin I get, so a bath is a small price to pay. Now where did I put my rubber duckie?


Early to bed!!!

Momma said I have to get all my posting and diary entries done early tonight cause she's going to bed early...I'll believe it when I seez it! This weekend is going to be very busy so they're getting up early tomorrow to get things done. Sunday the rain is suppose to be back. Rained here today, I really and truely feel bad for all the pups and purrs who are soooo hot, but I really wish we could get some hot weather instead of being just warm and wet enough to make it humid. I guess you always want what you don't have :0( Silly me, I still want it!!!

Momma & Daddy are meeting Jim and Judie for dinner on Sunday. They're going to Outback Steak House, I love it when they go there, Mom always saves me a bite of steak...yummmmmy! They haven't gotten together since September and they are really looking forward to seeing them. They travel together,places I can't go like Disneyland and Disney World. I can't go on the rides cause of the no thumb thing...can't hold on Dad says. I could try and there's so much else to see and do but doggies (unless you're a sevice doggie) can't go in to the park. Darn, some of those rides look mighty fun. I can just feel the wind from the rollercoaster blowing my blonde hair back as we fly up and down and tear around those corners. A doodle can dream!

Well here I am again, snoozong in front of the fan in the office! Mom can't sleep so she decided to add more pictures to my page. I love her pink hydrangeas! Pity the don't smell as good as they look. Both of the grandkids are gone, but they'll be back. Next week Tiffani (grand daughter) might come and bake with Mom. I hope so, I love Tiffani vey much, plus I'll get to taste some of those goodies!!! Dad came home and told us that he has a week off in August and on one of those days they are going to a baseball game in Seattle. I can't go cause Mom says that I'm too big of a ball hog and I would get in the way of the game. I love to chase balls...little ones, big ones, hard ones, soft ones...if it's a ball I'll chase it! Maybe they'll bring me home something, like a yummy treat,ohhh a Doodle can dream!

Well to anyone reading this, good morning! Hope everyone has a wonderful day and week end. Mom' heading towards bed so I gotta head that way too...I can't type without her, tried once but it was very messy and made no sense what so ever, so she does all the typing for me!


One Tired Pup

I am one pooped puppy! Not only was the 2 grandkids here, but when my human sister dropped off Gabrielle they brought Henisey! He's a little jack russell mix and we ran and ran and ran and ran. He has a small yard and I have 2 1/2 acres and we have tons of really good smells so he had a blast. I hate to admit this...but I'm a little scared of small dogs. I weigh between 75 and 80 lbs so you wouldn't think I'd be scared of pup that are small but the small ones are always the ones who try and bite my hinny! I guess they might be scared of me so that's why they take after me, but I've NEVER gone after anyone, big or small!!! I've not had too many larger dogs be unfriendly but I seem to brign out the worst in most small pups and they always do it when my back is turned. Henisey wasn't trying to bite me though so I think he and I will become good friends over time. It's funny it took time to get Pammy (Grand daughter) to trust me after a dog bit her and now little Henisey is willing to give me time to get past being attacked by little dogs.

Both of the kids are gone, we took them home on Tuesday night, Mom and I are kinda sad, we love having them here. Mom can't sleep, she's been hurting alot so we're playing on dogster. Wish she could learn to sleep at night and play on dogster during the day...she really needs to find a way to get more sleep. Sometimes she's so tired she get goofy...well goofier hehehehehe! I love my goofy Mom:0)

The weather has been one day and cold or rainy the next, but it's still better than the hot and stormy weather some of the poor pups and pawrents are dealing with. We are suppose to be getting another thunder and lightening storm here, I hope not. The one bad thing about living out in the country is we loose power alot. We have been out as long a 2 1/2 weeks so Daddy got a generator so we don't loose our food. We loose power alot in the winter usually at the worst time like when Thanksgiving dinner's being cooked. But I still like having the acreage and all the wild critters that come with it. Mom said she wished all the moles and voles would go far, far away. They are a real pain!

Well, I think we'll see if dogster is working better now and if not maybe we can hit the sack.
Sleep well pups and purrs


WOW I Have the Diary of the Day

Mom & I are a little confused, just the other day I had one of the featured Diarys of the Day, but I wasn't the one with the picture on the community page. Today I have the Diary of the Day & I'm the one with the picture...hmmm Mom & I are easily confused. Oh well Cooper made me a beautiful picture and I get to share it with everyone! Thanks Cooper. While I'm thanking folks, thanks Pam for you help with my wouldn't be the same without you! You are a very gifted women with a beautiful heart that's always willing to help folks.

If this diary entry goes a little off tilt it's because Mom has yet to go to bed and it's almost time to get up! Our Granddaughter, Pammy, has been here for a couple of days & Mom's been too busy to get to play on Dogster so she's doin it now! We pick up another Granddaughter, Gabrielle, tomorrow so I will have 2 kids to play least until Tuesday when they have to go home:0( Mom & I always get a little sad when they've been here for awhile & then go home. But that's not til Tuesday so for now we're gonna have FUN! Mom's still painting, Dad's still residing and me I'm playing with the Grandkids. Mom & Dad play too but they still have to work on the siding while the weather is nice. It's been soooooo nice to have the good weather. I know it's naughty to complain when we couldn't even get into the 60's & it rained everyday when so many were & are having terrible heat, but it got so dreary. The last week or so has been perfect, 70's & 80's. We had thunder & lightening storms all day on Friday & lost power for a bit, but not too long. We kinda had a bit of it all, thunder, lightening, hail, rain & sunshine! It was still thundering and lightening on Satuday morning but no rain or anything.

Mom's having a hard time playing with the different groups, the page locks up and you have to leave Dogster and restart it. It has been really bad tonight, almost every page locked up. I hope it doesn't keep doing that for long, Mom doesn't have a lot of time to post things for me when it take 2-3 tries to get it done.

I can hear the birds starting to sing and it's beginning to get lighter. Mom loves this time of morning,everything so peaceful. Yesterday I got to play in the sprinkler with Pammy, we were both soaked, then we sacked out on the blanket in the sun. I got too hot and went and sat on Mom's foot while she painted. I was one pooped puppy. She was afraid she would get primer all over me so she put a blanket in the shade for me and gave me water with a few ice cubes in it. I love ice cubes! Oh and carrots YUMMMMY! I like most anything as long as Mom or Dad likes it and will share with me. Dad always tell me "I don't beg for your dog food, so don't beg for mine" yea right like he'd want my dog food!!! He's a good guy, most of the time he gives me little tid bits of what he's eating as long as it's not bad for me.

Yesterday Mom saw what looked like a deer had been bedding down out in our old horse pens. We know that they are there, but they don't usually come close enough to see them from the house. One year we had a injured doe come up and eat the apples off of our young tree. Mom left all the apples for her and picked the one that were to high for her to reach on the ground so she could eat them too. We gave her grain & hay and named her Doris. She cmae back a 2nd year but her injury was worse so we put straw in the old horse stall and fed her again, she didn't come back for a 3rd year. We have pictures of her at the apple tree and think of her often. Mom prayed that her death would be peaceful. It's funny how attached you can get. Mom loves animals...well not monkeys. When she was 12 Grama got a Wolly monkey, yuck, she wore diapers and was cleaner than most kids Mom knew, but she could be a real pain!!!! Changing that little hairy behind! Mom would NEVER have a monkey unless she lived in a very bad neighborhood and needed protection. Folks think pups like Pit Bulls, German Shepherd and such are tough, try taking on a monkey that has 4 hands and a tail that they use to whap you with like a stick. She was very protective and would come and take after whoever she thought might hurt you! Susie, that was her name, wore clothes, ate in a high chair and rode all over the place with us on our motorcycles. She could be so sweet and loving. Mom's the only person in Port Orchard that had to get a tetna shot because of a monkeys bite! The doctor was shocked to say the least! No monkeys for Mom!

Well everyone is still asleep but it's light enough now so Mom and I are going to go paint.

Good Morning to all who reads this. Have a wonderful day.


Favorite Toys

Well, Momma went to bed but now she's up again :0( She's hurting so she figured she could play on Dogster. She got her shot in her hand to try & get her finger not to lock down, it still sticks but she does't have to use her other hand to pull it up & it's not as painful as it was. They didn't know if this was going to work, but it looks like it is gonna help enough to get through the summer before she has to have surgery on all 4 for her fingers. Surgery has to happen, but not until fall cause when they did the other hand she couldn't use it for weeks & then she had very little mobility with it for months. But this way she can still help Daddy with the siding and painting. Daddy works hard at work, then comes home & they work till dark outside. When the bad weather comes then they work on the inside. They want to get the remodeling, inside & out, done before Daddy retires in a couple of years.

Wednesday evening Momma & Daddy went & picked up one of most favorite toys...Pamela! Pammy is almost 9 & is one of the sweetest, most loving kids I've ever been around. When she was younger she was bitten by their dog who had some issues. Poor Pammy wasn't doing anything but walking by & wham the dog got her. So, she was scared of dogs after that. It took a little while to show her that I wouldn't hurt her for anything, but she came around & now we're the best of buddies! Momma loves havin the grandkids come & stay. On Sunday another one of the toys are coming over too, Gabrielle, she loves to shoot me with her finger so I lay down & play dead. She thinks it's the funniest thing in the whole world. She also loves to give me treats!! The kids know they have to ask if they can give me one, but ususally Momma says ok. I love to run & play outside with them & then come in & snuggle over a movie. The grandkids all really love me very much & they are some of my most favorite toys. Having the toys here makes Momma & Daddy slow down the work cause they want to spend time with the grandkids, another reason to love the toys!

Well she's off to see what's goin on in our groups! I keep telling her that normal people sleep at night. Oh well Dogster gives her some thing to do on the nights she can't sleep. Thanks Dogster!


Where's Daddy??

July 11th 2012 12:50 am
[ Leave A Comment | 1 person already has ]

All day I have been looking for Daddy but couldn't find him. He wasn't outside working and he wasn't inside working and Mom was home all day so he wasn't taking her to the doctor again, so that means HE WENT BACK TO WORK:0( I hate it when he has to go back to work after a vacation, it's sooooo easy to get use to and liking him home all the time. Momma seems a little sad too, it's always this way when he goes back to work, both of us just kinda mope around all day until he comes home. Tonight he fininshed up a deck in the front of the house and he put Mommas new "Grandkid" fountain up, it's right next to her Grannys Garden. That made Momma smile, she loves fountains with their sound of running water. Me, if it makes her happy I'm happy, plus the sound of running water reminds me when I go outside it may be time to tinkle! Do my business then play time. Tomorrow they start back on the siding, but Dad said Mom can't paint for a few days. Don't know how he's gonna stop her when he's gone all day at work, but Mom's told him ok...we'll see if she can keep her pawa of the painting!

It's suppose to be in the 80's for the next few days here but we have air conditioning in several rooms of the house so I can keep cool even with all my hair. The weather has been really good for the blueberry plants, they are loaded and some are ripe...very good eats but I can't just help myself like the birds do so I just nibble at what they drop! I like the birds and the wild rabbits, I don't like the raccoons though, they can be really mean and they've hurt several people and animals in the area. They really work as a team and if you're by yourself you can get into real trouble with them.

Ooops, guess we're goin to bed. Night all.


Home Alone

Well today hasn't been a whole lot of fun. I've been home all day by myself, well most of the day anyway. Mom had to go to the doctors so Dad took her. She got a shot in her hand for her finger but the doc said it probably won't help so that means surgery. YUK! Mom's had enough surgerys. She won't let them do it until fall cause her & Dad are taking off the old siding and she's doin the painting. Maybe it will work though so we are keeping a good thought, she's surprised doctors before :0) so she just might do it agian!!

After the doctor they went to # 8 Grandchilds (Abigail) 1st B-Day! I wanted to go but they said no cause there would be alot of people there and I wasn't invited. Mom's real careful to make sure that I'm welcome before she takes me places. I should have been invited, I would have only made the party better! That's ok the kids are going to be coming over and then we can have our own PARTY here!

Woops, Mom's headed for be (she's holding her hand in the air, how's she gonna sleep like that?) Well good night all, sweet dreams.


Long Days

Daddy's vacation is almost over and he's back at work on Monday :0( Momma & I get a little sad when his vacation is gone, we miss him when he's at work. Poor Daddy probably needs to go back to work so he's not working so hard, up early and working on siding until dark, he needs to go back to work to get some rest :0). Momma's been too tired to spend much time on dogster, she just comes in after dark, showers, gets dinner and goes to bed. They both are very tired.

I got my bath last night and Momma brushed me today in between coats of paint on the siding. She played a little soccer with me too, but I was a ball hog so she quit, said she didn't have the energy to chase me all over. I felt bad about the whole ball hog thing so I brought the ball over and gave it to her when she was weeding her Grannies Garden. I got loved up on for that! Momma says she doesn't know what she would do without me...none us wants to even think about that!

Well, it's gettin that time again, Momma's finally headed for bed, so I must go for now. I watch over both of them during the night, sometimes I kinda scare her when she feels my breath on her face when she's asleep...just checkin to make sure all is well. Night Momma & Daddy. Your brown eyed girl loves you both!
