We had a Nor' easter blow through and got over a Foot of snow!!!! Yes quite troublsome for us shorter legged pups,bol. I tried to Boing and got stuck up to my neck and back. The wind was blowing over 35mph and its is in teens today. Brrrr,Being smarter than the Average bear, ;0 , I found that boinging along the house line where the snow was lower made it a "Bit "easier to travel albeit not very far. Mom tried to make a spot with the broom but not much help. If she goes down I really am stuck and its totally icey ickk. ! I still had to plonk down into the drifts to do business. Ya gotta go sometime and I held it for quite a long awhile, hoping it would go away,bol .
Mom wishes she had a camera or video! Sick I tell you sick she is. Have you No heart woman??? She felt bad for me but thought I heard her laugh say that is funny. NOT Mom!!! You think a wet toilet seat is bad?? Puhlease. My Daddy O dug me a nice little spot when he got home late last night from work. I hope he makes me a racetrack like he has in the past. This snow will last for awhile.

I checked in today and what to my Wide eyes and Pokey Iron Nose do I see and sniff???? Goodies lots of goodies!!! Woo hooo I recieved so many Treats from my dear pals!!! Thank you all so much !! I will ,comp allowing get back to you all ASAP. These goodies make this freezing cold and snow trap so much nicer!! Thank you to HQ and Bit of Luv for This mahvelous treat for All! Tasty and Zero calories too! Take that Miss calorie counter Mom, Hehe. Love hugs & pawrayers for you all always. Stay safe and well pals!!


J'Attendrai-I Will Wait

Well I finally got some tunes on my page. An ecclectic mix,there is just so much music to choose from. Mom tried to keep it mellow,bol.. There is one song on my list that makes Mommy think of my devotion & she came upon it unintentionally.She heard it in the movie Das Boot some years ago . It is J'Attendrai by Rina Ketty. It is a French song from the 30's basically translated as I Will Wait. I don't woof French,bol, but have thought to dedicate this song to All Pets left behind in yards or houses, dropped at Shelters & all the Hurricane animals who waited with devotion. My pawrents always say I wait so attentively at the window for them to come home if they go out and wont budge. It breaks their heart for what furs left behind feel when their devotion is not repaid. Please give your furs a scritch ,a hug for us & for all the poor furs who wait devotedly in vain . The link is for a YouTube video that loosely translates the song through subtitles and pictures into English if you want to check it out. It pretty cool. Au revoir Mes Amis..Happy Mardi Gras.
Hugs & pokes, Darla

I Miss Daddy....

I miss my Daddy . I have been pacing and grring at sounds in the middle of the night. Daddy was so sad since Grampa got really sick last week. I tried to kiss him and poke him to see what was wrong. Mommy said He went to Grama's house because my Grampa died this week. Grampa and Grama came to visit us every summer. I loved when Grampa would share his homemade mozzarelle, some Italian bread and some times a teeny bit of yummy sausage with me. I liked to sit on the front porch with him. He said I was such a good dog because I stayed right by him, listened so well and was so loyal to my loved ones. Daddy says he is getting my Huge fur cousin,who lives with Grama, to play ball and he's warming up to him . Mom says its good medicine for him to play with my Cuz. He will think I am a housecat when he gets home as my Cuz is Huge compared to me ,bol. We will miss you Grampa, what an interesting life you have had. Hurry home Daddy-O , I miss you most of all.

Please behave your best ,we really really appreciate it. :) My typist has limits to herself but this comp is making it crazy hard to keep up. All the Popping back & forth and comp freezing up is making us crazier than usual. She says it makes her feel older and crankier,bol. I will try my best to pop into my Groups and forums as The computer, time & typist allows. As ever,I keep you all in my prayers. I miss ya dear pals. Off to poke my nose in this snow. Its above 20s today woohoo. Love ,Hugs and pokes, DarlaMae.xoxoxo

I have been tagged by my dear handsome Mini Bully pal
Willie and My Beautiful Belgian palMirra Angel Mica's Baby Sis.

I have to tell 7 things about me and tag 7 pals. It's fun and helps the pawrents remember fun stuff about us too. :) Sorry it took me so long to post Willie, typist glitches,bol. Please visit Angel Mica'spage to see How you too can Join the Team to help defeat IMHA & related Blood diseases.. Happy& Healthy New year to All!!!

7 things about me...

1). I do not like rain or getting wet . Snow however is fun to stick my pokey nose in. Mom is fed up with the ice already & winter just began.

2.) I do not dig but do "air burying" with my nose or outside use my nose to push a few leaves or the like over a treat.

3.) I am not a retriever like dog. Recently I have been enjoying the repeat fun of bringing my small "cat like" ball toys & such to the pawrents to throw or roll about. They are oh so happy and enjoy this ever so much. Humans go figure,bol. Mom said never say never,bol.

4.) I like to sleep in and Mom wakes me up!:))

5.) I enjoy butt bumping family & friends when I am happy to see them. I also roo roo "talk"and poke my nose at the nearest person or object.:r

6.) I really like getting treats in my Yellow Febreeze bowl. I got it from Dogster & febreeze along with a cool food scoop, Thanks Febreeze & HQ. Daddy calls it my "Feed bag" as I can put my head in it and eat,bol.

7.) I have dog pals that walk by my house.I often will go to the back door to be let out around the time they are due to pass. I really Love my Big Black Puppy pal. Mom calls us shadows as we mimic each other in sync not making a sound.:)

I have tagged the following pals .
1. Poquito
2. Hannah

Don't Let the Grinch Get Ya

From the Dr. Seuss Classic:

You're A Mean One

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood
puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It
came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he
puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch
thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought,
doesn't come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little
bit more?"

"Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends."
Cindy Lew (the littlest Who in Whoville)

Merry Christmas to All

Wishing you Merry Christmas,Happy Chanukkah,Yule And holidays to each of you. May this Season Of Light fill Our Hearts, Homes and radiate out to All We Encounter. Thanks for Your gift of friendship,it means so much. Wishes for Blessings in Abundance in the Coming Year for Every Fur & family. Thanks for All the Holiday wishes, pmails and Prezzies that brighten up my page and heart.

Holiday Hugs and Pokes,


The "Gift"....

A Dear pal shared this with me and said ok to share it with others. {{{Thanks "P". }}}

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there

The children were nestled all snug in their beds
With no thought of the dog filling their head

And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap
Knew he was cold, but didn't care about that

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter

Away to the window I flew like a flash
Figuring the dog was free of his chain and into the trash

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But Santa Claus - with eyes full of tears

He un-chained the dog, once so lively and quick
Last year's Christmas present, now painfully thin and sick

More rapid than eagles he called the dog's name
And the dog ran to him, despite all his pain

"Now, DASHER! now, DANCER! now, PRANCER and VIXEN!

To the top of the porch! To the top of the wall!
Let's find this dog a home where he'll be loved by all."

I knew in an instant there would be no gifts this year
For Santa Claus had made one thing quite clear

The gift of a dog is not just for the season
We had gotten the pup for all the wrong reasons

In our haste to think of the kids a gift
There was one important thing that we missed

A dog should be family, and cared for the same
You don't give a gift, then put it outside on a chain

And I heard him exclaim as he rode out of sight
"You weren't given a gift! You were given a LIFE!"

Thanksgiving-Toddling Tot

Wow Mommy did not get to post my Thanksgiving news. I am so grateful for my family, my friends and Dogster pals. Your friendship and support means the world to us and we keep you all close in heart. We had a nice day with my Aunt and cousins who came over. My youngest baby cousin is now walking and talking. what fun this little human is. He smells great and drops food too, Whats not to like,bol. I was so very good with him. I sniffed his butt ,kissed him and followed him but did not poke alot or knock him over. He even bonked me in the head accidentally and I just walked away. My pawrents were so proud of me. I have been good with infants but this was my first extended " Close encounter" with a toddler. He just turned 1 year old in November. These short humans talk funny and wave their arms and throw things but I just loved him. I licked his pants over his bum and everyone laughed and said diaper change time. Enjoy everyday you get to share with your loved ones,good days and bad. We know not how many we have to share.

I would also like to thank Dogster and Febreeze for the pawsome bowl and scoop. I truly LOVE my "feed bag" as Daddy calls it. :r Myhead fits in it, bol. Anything given to me in my yellow bowl is just grrrreat!


A Different take on A Christmas Tale...

Please take a moment to read this and say a prayer for the families who have lost their beloved family members to BSL I pray For all the pups who are destroyed every day because of what they look like. Thanks Sisters3 for posting this very important and timely message.|:||:||:|

T'was the Night Before Christmas

T’was the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
The stockings where hung by the chimney with care
In the hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there

But at the North Pole sudden changes arose
All down to Rudolph and his ruby red nose
Clipboard in hand, a breed expert arrived
He motioned to Santa saying," please step aside".

A smooth haired coat and a muscular build
A broad deep chest our Rudolph did yield
The breed expert's pen, created pages of ticks
Then he suddenly called out "good lord, we've been tricked!"

"This creatures no donkey and clearly no horse!
I know these things! I've attended the course!"
Look at my clipboard the boxes are full!
It's very obvious to me: Rudolph is a pit bull!

Out with the measuring sticks, he explained to Santa the law
And he measured poor Rudolph from shoulder to floor.
As the spectacle continued Santa said with a sigh
He's a reindeer you fool! Why must he die?

"The law is the law" the expert said standing tall,
Then picked up his mobile and made a quick call
The sound of sirens filled the peaceful night air
and Rudolph removed who knew where?

Days turned too weeks and confused and alone
Rudolph pined, for the place he called home
As the first snow started falling Rudolph gave up the fight
And he took his last breath on a cold winters night

You may think this is funny, if a little untrue.
But how would you like it, if it happened to you?
If your dog was taken because of its look...
Because it ticked enough boxes in some silly book?

Regardless of parentage it doesn't matter what breed
If it ticks enough boxes then it's a done deed
So humor me here and pretend this is true
Think how you would feel if it happened to you.

Cuddle your hounds while you have them close by
For some spend this Christmas, waiting to die.
Now back to the story, it doesn't end there
One more short verse I need to share

Santa fetched Rudolph's body and cried for his friend
And swore to himself, this would not be the end
And I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight
"The law is wrong, please help us to fight!"
