A Pee-Pea Fest!

A Pee-Pea Fest!

You read it right!
I had a pea-pee fest…or was it pee-pea…well, no matter I had one, BOL!
Growlmy went to the grocery store as she often does when she doesn’t have to go to her job. She says she has to get ‘provisions’.
When she came back, I ran right out and added some new decor to our snow walls…that is the pee fest part…nothing unusual there, BOL! You pals all thought you were gonna read about puddles or something…got ya! BOL!

Well I *did* have a pea fest!
Growlmy was putting away her groceries. She picked up the little packets of frozen veggies, and I followed her to the freezer. Well, I always need to snoopervise her you know…good thing! The one bag started to release its contents…and before growlmy knew what was happening, a large number of frozen peas spilled out all over the floor! YUM! SCORE! It was my furry own Pea Festival. I LOVE frozen peas! Yes I surely do…I forgot all about the rest of the groceries that needed to be inspected and I crunched them all away. Growlmy did not have to bend over to get any of them little green balls. It was a win-win!
The best part was, that if this was a controlled situation, I would nevfur have gotten so many! BOL!

And I wish we could see our yard as green as those peas, cause there was some more snow today…about 2 inches…not fair:(
But, the stuff that is there is now nice and firm, so I can walk all over it…like this: Take a few steps, fall in…take a few more steps, slide and fall, take a few more steps, and mark the tree with…not peas, and then continue in like manner to where all the squirrel dudes have been doing their thing, sheesh, it smells like squirrel there, Grrr.
So I had to do some more not peas and then I decided it was too cold fur my elderly bones and I made the trek back…

And now I am resting in my doggy nest awaiting the next day's dogventures…and dreaming about yummy peas!

Stuff From Dogster and Stuff About Doggy Doo!

After you read about my Dogster doings...well I found some fun stuff...

Well, she almost missed it, BOL! Silly dogretary.
I am a DDP and she didn't pay it any attention till the day is almost done, Sheesh!
She *did* do kitty stuff...but doggy stuff? Not yet. Something about chores...
Well, at least she didn't have to go to work today, BOL!
Thanks for the messages and gifts! You pups are so faithfur and such great pals!

Yesterday the day started out with...you guessed it...more snow. UGH! YUCK! I am done with snow thank you furry much, but the snow machine didn't hear me.
Then it began to pour, and pour and it thundered and lightninged too, Wow!
And today the temps have gone way below freezing and the wind is rough and wild. It blew down a bunch of small branches so that the yard's snow cover looks like it has sprinkles all over it, BOL! It even blew off growlmy's permanently affixed tree trunk butterfly...Hmmm I guess it wasn't so permanent afterall. It broke in half. Shucks, she really liked it, it was a present from my Auntie, and it came from Europe...oh well, now the garden stores around here can sell her another newer one, BOL!

Well, pawppy just got in, from a late meeting...so now I shall run off to woof & lick him...

This is the neato picture all ready to bring in the Spring, that Cooper and his furmily sent to me...there are even butterflies to replace my broken one!

And now that it is late I am woofing again.

A while back I woofed about those funny boxes in the Netherlands that peeps can use to ...well, put the doo-doo pick-up bags in...so here is a picture of that urban necessity. Well I think growlmy would find them usefur out in the countryside too...They sure are bright! Can't miss them!

Here is a picture of the mailboxes...
Um...see what I mean about you gotta pay attention?? BOL!

I think this version seen in a different city would be easier to not make the mixup mistake:
 Hey, that dude looks kind of like me!

Anyways if you walk in big cities over there, you might see things like this:

This one says:
Dog in the Gutter - Thank You

Um, why we gotta be in the gutter, growlmy don't they like doggies?
Then there is this kind:

This one means...don't (***) on the sidewalk.


Well, that's enough silliness fur now!
I still think the visual signs we see here in yards and parks do the trick just as well...

Winter: Will It Ever Go Back To Spring?

And...drum roll...we got more snow yesterday...ugh. About 8 inches, all the schools were closed to day. We think its a record for number of days of classes cancelled around here.

Growlmy got stuck in the driveway when she got home from work, last night, and when she finally was parked, she decided to clean up some...that took about 2 1/2 hours...OMD:( 
(She didn't get to bed until after 330 am)

This morning only a dusting of new snow had come...but then the plow came along...wham...another 2 hours work to get all the packed and icy stuff out of the end of our driveway.

So the groceries had to wait another day before being bought...well, we do have a well filled pantry, good to raid at times like this. And I know she keeps lots of extra food & treats in that pantry, too.

Would you believe it is 42F right now?? OMD! And thunderstorms predicted for Thursday...and then back to the deep freezer. What a strange winter we are having.
Maybe the 'warmth' will help lower the tops of our snow mountains...

Sometimes peeps have rain dances...I think we need to have a spring dance.

Valentine's Day

I want to take the time a wee bit early to wish all my furends a Happy Valentine's Day!

Wow! This was easy to load the image in here, BOL! Should have done it a lot sooner...
Some pups were showing pics of when they were wee ones...here is one of me:
Then I did a lot of eating:
And soon I got larger...
My schnooter is actually how I got my name, Freckles, though now the nose is all black, and the freckles are all over my skin, BOL!
OK, growlmy said since the clock says midnight here it is time fur nighty-nights!
And make sure you all have a great Valentine's Day...Growlmy has to work, sigh...

Dogabrating My DOTW In Style

I am still reeling from being DOTW last week!
It was a lot of fun fur sure, though. And just in the nick of time too...
This morning I saw that my window seat has been given to Hershey the Mini Schnauzer! Congrats to the pretty Hershey!

I got so much mail, and gifts that growlmy as dogretary could hardly keep up...cause the snow was taking up a ton of her time, and pawppy's too, Grrr. That snow machine is parked over our area and it dumps on us all the time, sheesh yet again yesterday we had a good 5 or 6 inches. We do not know where to pile it up.

Some of the snow piles are like mountains, and they are taller than the fencetop...growlmy is hoping I don't get it into my terrier head to go mountain climbing...cause how would I get back inside the yard. She says it IS a good thing that I truly do not care for snow games at all! Well, maybe looking at them on TV as in the 2014 Winter Oil-Limp-Pics!

And though growlmy made a narrow path all the way around the house, and cleared the sidewalks I still can't just run out to the far back woodsy area. Those squirrel dudes are sitting on the wood pile taunting me and I can't chase them, the snow in the yard is way deeper than I am tall, in fact its past growlmy's knees...
So I use the snow-walls as the boards to put my p-mails on...and go a wee way into the path to do ...you know...the thaw later in the can't get here soon enough spring is going to yield up lots and loads to bag up....BOL!

Growlmy had to go to her job a few evenings too...appawrently that pawlace doesn't stop fur things like DOTW's, BOL!
And of course like so many of you she is learning new tricks to help me and my kitties keep in touch, after the curtains close over there in Dogsterland, it makes her head spin, OMD!
And she is copying our profiles too, using that HTTrack! Wow, that is way cool the way it works. Only she had to do revisions of our pages, cause Buddy's kind dad was finding things that needed to be tweaked so that things will work later when growlmy and all of you want to see our profiles as they appear here. (Thanks, Buddy & Abby-Angel's Dad)

Wait till you all hear how I dogabrated the last evening of my DOTW...

Pawppy had done a lot of snow clearing, whilst growlmy was at her work, yup, she has to work alternate weekends...then he made himself a sandwich, and after clearing things up, he went to bed, likely around 8:30pm or 9pm, because he has to get up furry early to go to his work...anywoofs,
Growlmy doesn't get back herself till about 11:30pm. So I was alone, pawppy said I was napping on my couch nest.
Growlmy came in later...and OMD!
I had been dogabrating! With some kitty help, no; maybe they even did it all by themselves, then I helped...BOL!

Well, growlmy saw the trash can was lying open on the floor, there was shredded paper evfurry where, and sparkling containers that had previously held lunchmeat, and ice cream, and yogurt...and others. (A whole day's trash...yum!)The shredded paper had been the bag that held pawppy's bread, I ripped it into confetti looking for crumbs...
What a royal mess, as befits a pup who was king of Dogsterland, well, fur a week anyways! I needed to dogabrate and pawrty, you know, yes?
Though I did say that Pipo & Minko started it...
So Growlmy with her tired body from her job at the nursing home, had to clean up, mop up and make sure I was OK...yup, I was!!
Pups you should have been here, it was furtastic indeed!
I have no idea why the trash bin was emptied after my pawrents finished supper tonight...

Today growlmy spent yet more time outside doing battle with that evfur falling snow...pawppy said that by next week we may get rain? OMD! Now that should make fur interesting conditions in my snow-mountain range.

Oh, My Dogness!!

This is some of what I posted in my Dogster Diary today:

I begged growlmy to let me look at what was happening in Dogsterland, beloved Dogsterland sitting in death-row as it were...and lo and behold I had to look twice, because there I was...grinning at myself in the DOTW window, OMD!!!

So pups at the end of the Dogster era, I am furmouse, so growlmy told me.
I am glad I was finally able to add that to my doggy bucket list, BOL!
Kind of bittersweet, though...sigh...OK, I won't dwell on that...this is a happy entry, right?!

Thanks to ALL of you, my pals, and new acquaintances, too, that I am making this way. WOOFS to you all, I love you!
My ♥ to you all, and so fitting in this month of love. Wow that day is coming up quickly, too.

We had about 7-8 inches of snow...again...on Saturday, but yesterday and today we are glad here that the snow machine is turned OFF. Well, I heard that it will switch back to ON tomorrow evening...sigh...
And boss-boy backed into a snowbank, pulling away a bit of the back bumper of his new car...oh the pain and chagrin of dinging your pride and joy...growlmy knows that feeling too, as years ago she totaled a new car...at least she wasn't hurt. Boss-boy was in a parking lot, BOL!

This morning it was quite cold again -4F, Brrr! Spring...I want spring to come back, PLEASE!

Early just after this news came to me, I saw a large English Setter getting a stroll with his peeps, wow, they must like getting out in the cold, doggy didn't even have a coat on, just his own furs. I see this dog sometimes, but have not had a nose to nose...nor has growlmy been able to speak with his peeps, I guess we keep the wrong schedules! BOL!

Well, now I have to go and take a long nap, because growlmy has to go to her job...
