CRAZINESS AND JUNE'S ALMOST OVER.......

I can't believe that June is almost over and summer is suppose to be here. I've been MIA! Seems like forever, since I have told you about my life on the prairie...

So here goes: Gma took that trip to her Mom's. She was gone like forever....I put on MILES with Gpa while we drove around our property and fixed fences. I sniffed new stuff everyday! I lost my cookie butt
from winter....BRING ON THE COOKIES! 

Gma and Gpa worked their butts off after Gma returned. They had to mow everything,not once but several times. BIG Rains on the prairie.
They planted the vegetable garden and got that up and going... A few
appointments crammed in their days. Putting house back in order. Gma's granddaughter came and made a dent in Gpa's 3 wk. mess.....

Took me to Bismarck shopping with them. I needed a harness and I am hard to fit! I sniffed everything at Pet Smart and even snooped out 
furry critters behind glass. While I sniffed toys in the bends,I was polite and wouldn't help myself! (Smart Doxie- that earned me,an extra treat purchase....Wasn't that clever????) I went to the greenhouses,farm stores and Wallie World too. They took turns going inside. I walked around outside checking things out. I saw lots of traffic,walkers,bicycles
motorcycles and so many people....I DIDN'T HAVE A MELTDOWN EITHER! We went to McD's for supper...Cuz they have outside seating.
It was Pawtastic! I had grilled chicken, a french fry and my own tiny
little cone....

THE SOUTH DAKOTA VACATION and THE DOGGIE HOTEL: I visited the
doggie hotel several times before their vacation. Every time after I am home about 12 hrs.,the poop hits thee fan! I can't help it! My gut tells
them, I don't like staying behind...
Long story short: I ate,drank,slept,played with another doxie,didn't act stressed...Took probiotics while there,but the colitis still run me over!
I had 3 medicines to take  and just finished them this week. We knew 
what to look for,so Gma was on top of this ASAP! I don't mind the 
special food to hide the medicine....They tell Gma and Gpa I am well behaved and a good girl....I thought they were gone forever!

I went to the doggie hotel on June 7, they came and got me on June 12th. They went to the Black Hills of South Dakota and stayed in Rapid City. We have our own Hills here,why go to SD????????? Gma said, except for the 2 grandkids,who were well behaved....it was like a HoneyMoon. We have honey beehives here in the summer pasture!
Why go to SD to Honeymoon? There is a ton of honey in the basement
pantry! Guess the kids stayed with their Mom and Dad. Gma/pa had their own room, but didn't have me to Snuggle up next to...Gma said over 2 decades since both of them have been off the place together...
Gpa only called home to check on cattle 1 Time! Gma was calling to check on me, but they didn't tell me...Thought I might cry!

I stayed behind cuz, most hotels don't want pups! Isn't that awful!
In a nutshell,here's the stuff they liked the BEST! The grandkids rated
WaTiki WaterPark,Wildlife Bear USA, 800 ft. Zipline,1880 Steam Engine
Train Ride,The Cosmos, Reptile Gardens their favorites. The old folks didn't do the waterpark or zipline,they watched from a safe distance. They went  and checked out 2 wineries and a brewery. They visited Mt. Rushmore, a lot of little towns....Shopped and bought stuff,but no one had pup toys! Can you believe it?????????? They ate in some fancy places and some fast food places. Nice weather except the last day...
It was windy and rainy..........Gma and Gpa took a Nap! They were running out of Energy!Up on mountain time and to bed on their time...
Very long FUN PACKED days.......

They have been fishing 2 x's and skunked 1 time. Some new fish in freezer. June has been super WET! Can't make a week with the mowing.
Can barely keep up with mowing,vegetable garden and flowers.
Temperatures have been on the cool side with too many days without sunshine. The flowerpots are drooping from too much water! Since last week,we've had over 5" of rain. Severe weather is expected the next 2 days. Last night it was so windy and just poured. Leaving 2.5",my people didn't sleep well! In 4+ decades Gma said, she has never poured water out of her flowerpots! So when the weather co-operates they
are trying to catch up on the outside work. The storms have also kept our puters turned off...So, then I can't catch up with my pals.....

The garden plants are hanging in there,despite the bad winds and all the rain. Haven't checked them out yet today.......I have a Momma Raccoon strolling through my yard,within 10 ft. of my door,
whenever she wants too! I MEAN REALLY,WHAT'S UP WITH THAT????
She's the intruder and I am either in the front fenced in yard or on
a harness and a 15 ft. leash! Gma says, I'm a HOUND! While they are weeding,mowing,etc.........I'll put my snout to the ground, Sniff that
big pawwed furry critter out! I'll solve the debate, on where she is living! Gma says, if I find her house,she will tear me apart,cuz she has babies! She comes up here where the house is...not for Gpa's shelled corn for the cattle.......She squeezes through the cut-out in the milkhouse for the barn kitties and EATS THEIR FOOD!!!!!!! I've only smelled her... Gma and Gpa see her very often! So, I'm now a prairie prisoner and I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!! Since she can EAT alot,I bet,she is 
cutting into my Treat Budget!

I could go on and on,but it is banking up...I better hurry and finished this before we have to shut everything down again! I hope to be able to read everyone's adventures over the weekend. Dogster has been like
taking a trip into the Twilight Zone.... It's been very hard to try and keep in touch with our pals. Just too much Work around here and too little Time! Gpa worked on equipment,tested some....Now he needs nice weather to make hay. This is his Last year to make hay(so he says).
If the weather doesn't change soon...it will feel like we NEVER HAD SUMMER AT ALL......
Hugs and kisses,mazy

WEIRD BUT BUSY DAY.....

RAINED here all weekend,including today. Neighbor just called and he 
thinks we had 3.5" Sure gave the yard and perennials a boost. Those nasty
harsh winds had dried everything out. 2 p.m. the temperatures fell to 33 
and rain changed to snow flurries.... What snow?? I thought we were done 
for this year.....Anywho,it was a good day for snuggling into my blankets...

Gma was busy with deep cleanin'. She always leaves Gpa with clean 
house,no laundry,baked stuff and plenty of meals, ready to go...Gpa has
a HONEY- DO LIST for while she is gone...Sure hope, it doesn't rain too
much! That is why the new carpet for the back steps, is in the basement
waiting....last spring it started raining 18 th. of May and rained all the way
through June. Then Gpa went to the hayfield........Fall came and the same
thing happened......started raining and wouldn't quit! Then the days were
too cool for the carpet glue.

Kenzie and Jax's finish school on May 15th. They are coming up to clean
house for Gma...She was so pleased with how they did last year,she hired
them to come. They will have extra spending money,when they go to S.Dakota
in June. Gma said, they make a dent in Gpa's messes and then she doesn't
feel so overwhelmed. He tries to keep things under control....Gpa and I are
busy outside with the cattle and other spring stuff. Time for me to sniff and
hunt,while Gpa walks along and does his thinkin' for the day.......

Gma has a vegetable garden to plant,yard to get going,car to detail inside
All within 2 wks....so they can take the kids to see the Faces of Rock or 
something like that???????? I guess, a whole list of FUN stuff for them
to do....I don't get it??? If they walk the prairie with me....I'll sniff out all 
kinds of ROCKS for them! What's the big deal about a Zoo and a Water 
Park????? I heard her say, the Doctor has to poke on her some more in
May. I'm sure glad it is her and not me!!!!!!!!!!! I sure hope the Fur Doc 
isn't going to get another stab at me?????


So ROCKS,ANIMALS,WATER AND A GOLD MINE are why I have to stay 
at the doggie hotel?????? More than a day and half......They are pullin'
my paws,aren't they???????????? I thought they were all into basketball,
baseball and the lake where they take their boat.... Do the tube thingies ?
Fishing! Fishing,I understand,cuz,I eat the fish they catch too.......
I don't EAT rocks, I don't want to Meet any Lions,Tigers,Giraffes or Bears!
Now the monkeys, might be FUN?????? I don't like deep water! I like dry
ground to keep my paws on....Just who's BIG Idea was this??????They
aren't telling!

Gma packed that box with some of my stuff....I tried  not to LOOK......I
think,I'm headed back to the doggie hotel again! Will I eat or won't I
eat?????????? That is the  million dollar question.....Stay tuned and
someone will report......

Huggies and Kisses,mazy

MESSING AROUND

SUNDAY APRIL 27TH.

A cold, rainy, windy day and more on the way. We figured out how to put pics
into my blog this morning...Yippy! Tried it before, dogatary is on the downhill
slide for the day....Wet damp weather will get the best of her,sooner than later!
Being a OLD hooman sometimes just isn't any FUN at ALL!  I have a FULL time job
keepin' both Gma and Gpa on track....Now where was I???? Oh,yes! While things
are going good and the jeans are drying. We are trying to do a couple things
on the new silver painbox!

She's busy trying to figure out what she can do when not online. Shes been
planning on taking the laptop with her to her Mom's house. While Great-Gma
doesn't have net or a puter. Her sister has net and puters. She has a nephew
who she thought maybe could explain some of the new things to her. She tries
to read all the stuff. There are so many manuals....the info. mixes up in her tiny
little head....Then the confusion sets in!

Since she is having tons of trouble with her old body...she doesn't know if she 
can handle the extra weight of stuff to carry in the airport. Going to be a last 
minute choice....She hates that,cuz,she is a planner....Sounds like she will be
traveling into rainy weather this week. I heard her say,she will be packing my
stuff to go back to the doggie hotel....Just a short visit and see what happens
with my tummy????? I sure hope, it was a 1 time thingy,I had??Gpa isn't the 
nurse Gma is........He will have to contend with any fallout. I mean,Gma has to
go and get him a plain aspirin....Some think,I'm spoiled! I think, Gpa is more 
spoiled. 40+ yrs. is a long time to spoil a hooman............Enough...Let's see, if 
we can load a picture from this unit????? Oh phooey,I can't! She hasn't put any 
pictures in this new puter..............Maybe we should try that this afternoon.......
Need some lunch for strength 1st.! Let's EAT......Gma! Oh,sure! Now the laundry 
is done...it's always something.......

PART 3 TREATMENT AND FUTURE PREVENTION

HOWDY PALS- Last part of my Stress Induced Bacterial Colitis Saga.....
Digel- stopped the ugly poo within 12 hours. This was just pawtastic,cuz
then my little butt,started feelin' better right away! It's made out of all kinds
of fruit pectin and good tasting stuff! Just squirt into my mouth.... The 
2nd. med. was called Panacur and was a white powder. This was sprinkled
on my dry kibbles. (Fur Doc said, Gma could put chicken broth on there,
so it would dissolve and stick to my kibbles.) This medicine,I think was
for settling my tummy??????? If there were any nasty parasites in me,
this would wipe them out! I'm wormed on a regular basis. It was a
just in case thing....I suppose because there are so many barn kitties
around here? In case, there had been something I snagged off the ground
and ate.....Maybe,Gpa never saw it??? The 3rd. med. is the antibiotic
called Metronidazole. 1/2 pill,2x's per day for a week. This wipes out all
the very nasty bad bacteria in my intestines.....So my system re-balances.

This isn't flavored.....At 1st.,Gma just popped the pill in my mouth,rubbed 
my throat and I swallowed. I decided after 3 days....I DON'T WANT IT!
So, I started rollin' it in my mouth and spittin' it out! Now it is wet and
wants to fall apart! HeHe!  Things are improving, Gma is going to put
it inside some cheese.....We have to do this until Friday mornin'....
I'm getting good and spittin' it out and makin' a mess! Then when
it get soft...Gma is afraid I'm not gettin' all of it......My appetite is
normal and healthy. I never did lose the sparkle in my eyes or 
gloss in my fur.....I was plenty lively,just haywire guts!

Next week, Gma takes me back to the Doggie Hotel while she packs
and leaves for her Momma's house. I'm in charge of keepin' Gpa
in line...Seeing he does the Honey Do List and all that jazz! We get
along fine! I can work more treats out of him......Now it is nice enough 
that we can hunt and stuff! Besides the striped gopher,I also scared up 
a bunch of baby garter snakes today. It was in the high 60's. As I told
you, the Fur Doc wants to see if this is a 1 time deal???????

If not,Gpa will have the medicine here for me to take.......If it happens 
again, the Fur Doc is going to have me take Digel  and Probiotics,when
the vacation thingy comes around. Gma has these calming treats and
the caregiver has some things like that too. She also has one of those
misters with the calmin' stuff sprays into the air... NOW this is beginning
to sound like the ROYAL TREATMENT! I'M A PRINCESS,SO WHY NOT!
Extra treats...yummy!

The funny thing is that I showed no signs of any stress...Except
not eating my normal meals......Gma told Gpa, well, we better be
taking the LOOKIN' FOR THE HOUSE ON WHEELS VERY SERIOUSLY
and GET A MOVE ON FINDING SOMETHING! Obviously,we are not 
going too far,for too long without her......PALS, I'm really tryin' to 
HELP GMA OUT HERE! She really can't do the harsh winters any
more.... She's told Gpa, he has to get us to a warmer climate....
Fighting chronic pain 24/7 for 40 yrs. is hard on anyone...Gma says,
it's wearin' her out before her time......

I'll do my best to read everyone's new entries before Gma sneaks off
on me...I'll report back in late May on how things are going. We have
one bottle calf,a twin. Calving is going pretty good,so far. Saturday
until Thursday we are having some pretty night temperatures. Tomorrow
is very breezy! Weekend back to 40's and possible 40 mph winds....

Hugs and Kisses,Mazy

PART 2....OMD! FALL-OUT,TAKE COVER,PHEWY!!!!!!

Yesterday, I left my Doggie Hotel Saga with being home,tucked into bed 
with Gpa and keeping my eyes on Gma! I was miffed! During the night
I was up doing more poopies...Gma heard me and got up and changed 
my potty station. By Wednesday mornin',I wasn't mad at Gma anymore....

I was not playing with my meals and eating right away.....Sometimes,I
play with my breakfast until early afternoon,when I finally finish it. You'd
think,that means,I get a bowl full. NOPE, it is 1/4 c with 10 pcs. of Purina 
burger/cheese soft food topping my Nutro Small Breed Whole Chicken/
Brown Rice and Oatmeal formula. So anywho, ate and pottied...Softer
than before??? Then, I switched to poop,poop and more poop! OMD!
What's going on??????

I was bright eyed,wanted to play just making too many poops! Gma
told Gpa nothing but her pup food...What? She has a upset tummy!
I ate supper and what no venison nibbles like almost every night? Gma
did let me have a teenie tiny greenie (mostly rice) for bedtime snack.

We did our regular stuff in the evening and got ready for bed. So,we
are all snuggled in,Gma was watching Perry Mason. Gpa and myself
were fast asleep! It's 11:30 p.m., I DASH OUT OF THE COVERS.....
RUN DOWN MY PET STAIRS,RACE THROUGH THE BATHROOM.
BY PASSING MY SMALL POTTY STATION. RACE TO THE ENTRY,
WHERE I HAVE THE EXTRA LARGE STATION. I'M NOT AS FLEXIBLE
AS I WAS,WHEN I WAS YOUNGER!!!!

Gma jumps up and follows me, to see what is matter???? I  NOW HAVE
LOTS AND LOTS OF MUSHY POOP! I'VE PLASTERED THE STATION!
I'VE NOW POOPED MORE IN 1 DAY THAN I EVER HAVE IN MY WHOLE
LIFE!  These last dumps are like a cow on too much fresh green grass!
Big huge splats and no shape at all.... I'm done,Gma changes everything.
Back to bed we go.....took time for me to settle in and go back to sleep.
Gma said,my tummy was just rumbling....Gpa sleeps through the whole
thing....

Sometime during the night,I'm not talkin'.....I did this scenerio all over 
again! Gma was out like a light. Gpa heard me, but didn't get up....
The next morning, the big station is all plastered again,when Gma
and I start our day. I'm still hungry and eat all my breakfast...It isn't
even 30 minutes and I'm running to poop some more! In less than
an hour,I have 3 poops they are very watery. The last 1 Gma can see
fresh blood in it. After that,I kept going back,doing circles,like I had
more business but nothing happened. I did this until 2 p.m.,but no
more poopies......

Gma had been trying to get through to the Fur Docs,line was busy!
Thursday is cattle sale day,so 1 Doc is there. It's calving season,so
2 were out on calls. The last Doc was in surgery with a cow. When
she finally spoke to the Vet Tech,they said, bring me in at 3:30 p.m.
By now,I have a very sore butt! Gma feels guilty for taking me to the
Doggie Hotel. Her good time for her Anniversary,now doesn't seem
like such a good time.....

She is also wondering,if I snatched something off the ground,while
walking with Gpa on Fri.,Sat., or Sunday??? Then she sees on 
dogster, there are new food  and treat recalls. She spends 2 hours,
checking to make sure nothing we have is on the current lists. She
is very worried about me. I'm not drinking as much as I should.....
I'm not feeling so good and I stick to Gma like glue. My eyes
are bright,no fever.....but,something is wrong!

We go to town and I was happy to take a ride in the car. I sure didn't
know,I was ending up at the Fur Hospital ! We arrived a little early,
expecting to wait with livestock emergencies. Only 1 Doc was there,
our new Girl Doc....She was in surgery with a cow! FUTURE FAST
FOOD BURGERS makes this nice 3 yr. old Golden Retriever and
myself have to wait??????????

As soon as I got in there,I wiffed the air and OMD! It's the place where
they always do something to me! I'M ON GMA'S LAP BUT SHAKING 
LIKE A LEAF! Doxies throw dander, when they are anxious or stressed...
Gma goes back to the car, gets my big fluffy blanket and wraps me up.
I'm better now,but I want out of here A.S.A.P. I wasn't anxious when
Gma arrived to take me home from the Doggie Hotel.

Gma is really worried, I wasn't a real happy little camper either! 90 minutes
later,it's my turn. I'm going to be seeing the Girl Doc. This might not be so
bad after all??????? She doesn't act like, I'm a stock cow! Gma gives her
the whole story of my activities since last Friday. My short stay at Doggie
Hotel. My history of only being away from them both 1 night in my whole
life. What went in me and what came out of me! A yucky sample in a jar!
The whole 9 yards,as every detail was important to the Fur Doc. i'm always
current on all vaccinations.

Chrissie speaks softly to me....Examines my back and hips.(cuz,I'm doxie).
She feels my whole body and my tummy. Looks in my mouth and listens
to heart. Weighs me...They runs tests on my sample. While I'm there they
do my heartworm blood test and clip my nails too... Gma and Doc have a 
Big POW-WOW,took forever......She tells Gma, that she keeps very accurate
records and is on top of things. Doc is impressed,that I'm cross trained
and NEVER SOILED  anything in the HOUSE! It was a bad situation....

She was pretty sure I never picked anything off the ground that Gpa didn't
see....She said,I would have been sick before I was.....Since Gma didn't find 
current recalls on things I eat,she wasn't concerned. She told Gma, she
had seen and treated...as well as had a Lab with the same issue....
Gma was told, I HAVE STRESS INDUCED BACTERIAL COLITIS. This was
after running tests and looking at my yucky Gma brought in....I HAVE WHAT?
LITIS????????? NO I DON'T...I HAVE A SORE BUTT AND AS SOON AS 
I EAT .......PHEWY! I STINK AND POOP EVERYTHING RIGHT THROUGH ME!

NOW  that I've grossed all my pals out.....I'll tell you the next time,what my
medicines are. How they are working? How long I have to take it??? What
her recommendations are for me returning to the DOGGIE HOTEL before
the month is over. Remember Gma is going to see her Mom for 3 wks.
So I was going to go there the day she packs,Gpa is suppose to pick me
up after Gma is on the very early silver winged bird. I've stayed at my
house,by myself in the past....The Fur Doc said, Do THIS and SEE WHAT
HAPPENS!

PLANS are taking the grand-kids on vacation to South Dakota in June....
These stays were scheduled, so I would get used to the place. The plans
for S.Dakota are 5-7 days. Well, I might just change those plans! You
think????????? OMD! Would my hooman sister be upset! I was there
at the Doggie Hotel when I was a puppy...A couple times when Gma 
went shopping for the day. I spent  1 day and 1 night there. It's nice
clean, 5 star place....So, Gma says. If you're wondering why, I'm so
OLD and haven't been there on a regular basis???? It's cuz, this lady 
was very sick a few years ago. She had to do a ton of Doctoring to be
made well again. Gma has known her for decades.....She used to groom
Angel Sassy Foxie, when Gma's arthritic hands couldn't do it anymore.
She's a SWEET LOVING LADY....I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED???

DOGGIE HOTEL..............

Early,Monday morning,Grandma took me for a ride. WowZer,this will be FUN!
Ssssssssssooooooo I thought! Why did she put a box of my stuff in the car?
Why did she put one of my beds and several blankets in the car? Some stuffies
too! Who said, you can give away ANY of my STUFF????????

Something was mighty Fishy about this ride. However, I looked out and then
curled up on the seat and snuggled into the pillow with a blanket. Didn't take
long and we were stopping. Pulled into a yard, I saw a couple Golden Retrievers,
they barked at the car...So I barked a greeting back at them. Just trying to be
furiendly....

The sign said, Prairie Pets or somethin' like that?..Gma and I get out and go inside. 
I know this lady, haven't seen her for vvvvveeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrryyyyyyyylong
time....OMD! There are 2 little long haired doxies, 3 cats and some birds.
Those doxies and I went nose to nose to smell each other....next thing,I knew:
Gma brought my stuff inside.

While this lady fussed with me,Gma put all my stuff in a room. She put my
breakfast down,fixed my bed,my stuffies were on the bed. Lynn held me,
Gma gave her a note...They chatted and Gma left! She left me there ....
Something about their Anniversary,alone time,escaped from the ranch
for 1 day and night.  Last year there was a blizzard, they were trapped
at home with ME! Most years they have been at home due to livestock....

I certainly didn't understand being left in this place. I didn't cry when Gma
left. Gma said, even with such a nice place.....I wasn't impressed! I wasn't
in the same space as the 2 red doxies. I guess,I didn't like being there too
much! I'm a chow hound! I didn't eat anything at all,until I got home on
Tuesday at 1:30p.  Gma knows, I didn't eat because she measured the
food,treats and such before I went....LOOKS  like every bite came home 
with me...

I'm not telling what I did or didn't do at the Doggie Motel! Gma came back
and was right to my nice big kennel  5x10 ft. before I saw her. I snuggled
into my bed and 3 blankets. We had an extra heater going for us little furs.
The big furs in another area only had the regular building heat. She surprised
me, said Mazy girl...Ready to GO HOME????? Are you kidding me???Of
course,I'm ready to go to my own palace!

Gma let me out,packed my stuff,carried it out! I was by her side and only
stopped to pee. Loaded up,we came home....I only looked around,when
she would slow down or stop the car.  It's a nice place,but wasn't my house!
I stopped to sniff and kiss the Ponderosa ground,when we made it home!
Ran into the house,a.s.a.p.! I was starving.....I had Monday's breakfast
Tuesday afternoon! I refused to eat there! Not even treats!

Gma unpacked and put all my stuff away...Now,I was feeling comfortable 
about being back home. So, then I decided to not let Gma fuss over me!
I went into my CAVE...my safe place under Great-Grandpa's Rocker...
I wasn't coming out!!!  The Princess then began her pouting  mode!
Expressing, I didn't like being left behind!

By bedtime,I'd had 2 meals and done my business. Cuz, I wouldn't
potty while away from home. I snuggled into Gpa at bedtime and 
kept my eyes on Gma! I was still miffed at her! Left me behind!
My 2 poopies were softer than normal. Gma said,not surprised since
you didn't eat,you little stinker!!!

This Tale involves the whole week, plus 8 days of medicine...You'll
have to read on to see what happened...How this adventure all plays
out......ALL BECAUSE OF A WEDDING ANNIVERSARY! I mean really!
