Is It True

Mom heard a rumor that the Dogster/Catster community pages were not going to be shutting down. Can this be true? Mom is doing her happy dance (not a pretty sight).

We sure hope this will happen - Mom says losing all our friends would be like losing a village.

Can life get any better than this - and warm weather is on the way.

Oh happy day.

 

Smitten Again

Can I help it if I am cursed with my love of older ladies. I am smitten again. Her name is Jerry and she lives in Cyprus. Mom how far is that from Minnesota? A guy can dream.

18 below AGAIN this morning. I don't know how Mom does it. She trudges out every morning in the cold and dark and does who knows what all day. Then she returns usually in the dark, still in the cold.

Priscilla and I do the best we can to cheer her up. We send her off with a hot breakfast and when she returns we greet her warmly. Sometimes we get a little impatient with her because we feel it takes her too long to take off all her warm clothing and boots. I mean, hey Mom no one has thrown the ball to me all day. And my dear sister P demands her supper. Then Mom has to resort to picking up the squirt bottle (although we know that's a hollow threat as unbenowst to Mom we have jammed the nozzle) and says hey give me a break - let me get my boots off.

We love our Mom and just count the days until the weekend.

My friends, have a warm and happy day.

Quigley

 

You Can See My Beautiful Mug on Facebook

Mom has no idea how to save our pictures or the easiest way to save our diary pages. Any shortcuts you know so we can save some of our stuff before Dogster shuts down? Mom copied each of my diary pages to Word - just in case I want to publish a book someday of all my thoughts. Just wondering if there's an easier way.

Mom does has a Facebook page and our faces are already on there. You will be able to find us at www.facebook.com/pat.lynch.129794

Mom doesn't post much on Facebook but she said that will change by March. It won't be the same, but we're hoping we can still stay in touch with friends.

Hey guys, it is going to be 34 today - a heat wave. I am so psyched. Mom says after she runs errands we can spend some time outside today. Cylla and I are napping now so we'll be (well at least me - she's an old lady) raring to go.

Hope Mom will get her camera out.

Have a fantastic day.

 

Goodbye My Friends - I loved every minute

Mom just read us the sad news that the Dogster community pages are shutting down. We are devastated. We have met so many caring and compassionate souls through Dogster and Catster. We were just loving the fact that we could reach out to pups and cats and their owners all over the globe.

It kept Mom sane through the loss of 4 of her beloved faces who are now up at the Bridge that she still felt a connection to through Dogster..

Dogster we had the best time. You will be missed. You always put the kick in Mom's step.

Thank you all for being our friends - it was awesome.

We will keep up our journals right up to the end but we just wanted you all to know how much you have meant to all of us.

Our hearts are breaking.

 

Did You Miss Me????

I can't believe I haven't written in my diary since Thanksgiving. Where are my manners.

I'm going to go with the cold has frozen my little brain.

Just want to shout out to everyone who has sent hot chocolate our way. Helps to ward off the chill.

Mom did laundry today and we got to snuggle in the warm clothes. Good thing we don't have long hair and shed or Mom's coworkers would be picking the dog hair off her clothes all the time. Now they don't have a clue. And my friends it is heavenly to sink into that warmness.

It did warm up to 24 today. And tomorrow they are promising a big heat wave - in the 40's.

Cylla and I don't venture out too far out in the yard to do "the deed" we just squat on the sidewalk as the snow is a high as us. Mom does complain a bit about the yellow ice on the sidewalk but she totally understands.

We've heard from some of our friends and they have beautiful weather, in the 70 and 80's and even 120 from Australia. Maybe when Mom retires we can move to a warmer climate. Cylla has a harder time than me because she used to live in New Orleans.

Oh gotta run, Mom's talking about back rubs.

Happy New Year's my friends. Hope this year brings you lots of happiness.

 

Happy Thanksgiving

Wow, all the gifts we got from our friends today. We tried to send too but not all of them went through. Just know that we thank you for your Holiday greetings and hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving.

Quiet day at our house, just us and Mom. We sure miss the days when the whole family would come over for the holidays. We would get so many pets and scratches. Grandmas hasn't even come down today. Mom made her a special lunch but she chose to eat it upstairs instead of coming down by us. Rats, she knows how we like to lick her fingers when she's done. Grandma eats like a bird so Mom didn't want to make a big meal. She went to Boston Market and got stuff and now Grandma will have leftovers all week. And Mom says yay no dishes.

There is a rumor that Uncle Jesse will be putting in an appearance later this afternoon. We love Uncle Jesse, he's goofy just like me.

We are so thankful for all of our friends and that Mom loves us so much and keeps us warm and safe. It was brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr city yesterday. Mom is so proud of us that we brave the cold to do our thing and she is always standing at the door so we can zoom in quickly.

Stay well and happy my friends.

Tomorrow Is My Birthday!!!!!!

Big News - tomorrow I'm going to be five. I can't wait. Each year on my birthday I hope to find one of my litter mates. If your birthday is tomorrow and you look like me, give me a shout. Maybe I'm your brother. Mom got me from Grey Oaks in Friendship, WI.

I know Mom will be stopping at Petsmart to get me something really fun for my birthday. I could use a new soft Frisbee or a new rubber wiffle ball. And Mom don't forget to get something for Priscilla too.
See how brotherly I am. Also, Priscilla's Birthday is on Nov. 1, and then maybe Mom will buy me something then too. So it works out great for the both of us.

I bet if I look especially cute Mom will give me a small piece of chicken. I can taste it now.

I'll probably not be able to sleep all night. The only thing that would make tomorrow better is if Mom didn't have to work. Darn.

 

I Have A New Friend

Wow, I just got a new friend from France. Her name is Indya, She's a beautiful Maltese. I think I'm smitten.

Not much going on today. It's been rainy and cold all day about 33 degrees. Mom has been keeping us in the house. But, today was fun because it was laundry day so we got to lay in the freshly dried clothes, so warm. We love that.

Mom didn't go to bed until 11:30 last night so we let her sleep in until 7:30 this morning. Are we nice or what.

Have a fantastic week my friends. I can't believe it's the end of October already. Where did it go. Pretty soon we'll have to be worrying about the yellow snow.

 

Is it Monday Already

Man the weekend went fast. Cylla and I love weekends because Mom is home. We do let her leave for errands but otherwise we insist those two days are ours. And boy do we get tired my Monday morning. As soon as I finish this diary entry, I'm joining Cylla for a nap.

Just had to shout out and thank Dogster for picking me for a diary pick today. My handsome face on the community page. Woo Hoo.

If I wasn't outside yesterday, I had my face glued to the back window. No sign of the intruder. I guess the dynamic do of Quigley and Cylla scared the bajeebers out of him. Mom's back to her theory that no female critter would be nuts enough to come into our backyard.

Yea Mom, but remember Rodney is a girl and she runs the gauntlet all the time.

Well guys, my comfy chair is calling me. Have a grand day.

 

Big Excitement This Morning

September 28th 2013 12:13 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

Man oh man, was there big excitement this morning. Mom let us out early for our morning potty break. It's usually a solo act as Cylla has a large bladder and takes her sweet old time relieving herself. She's more interested in getting her morning meal in first.

Well anyway back to my story. I darted out and Cylla knowing something was afoot ran with me to the back gate. There was something out there. We were going crazy. Poor Mom, she didn't have her glasses on yet so she didn't know what it was. I was just running back and forth between the gate and the hosta garden. And of course barking. Well Mom can't have that in the early morning as the neighbors will get upset. So she tried to get us in with promises of breakfast and she even shook the goodie bag. We weren't budging, there was an intruder. Cylla finally caved and went for the goodie bag. Mom finally had to come and get me. I gave up at that point. The odor was still there but the critter had escaped.

So Mom doesn't know what the heck it was. She thought she saw a black streak so She doesn't think it was Rodney. And we didn't get sprayed so it wasn't a skunk. Maybe it was a black cat or a panther.


We were so close to catching it. Priscilla and I make a good tag team when there is an intruder.

So as you may have guessed I have posted myself at the back window all morning in case it has the nerve to return.

Oh and Rodney is back again. That dastardly squirrel. She knocked down Mom's board again and now there might be babies so Mom doesn't want to nail it shut.

Ever vigilant - Q
