Arrival Story:
Momma found me hanging around a mile from there place. I was seen repeatedly going in and out of a salough area. (marshy wetlands) I was living on bugs,garter snakes and whatever else I could find. I was young,shy and very afraid of automobiles. Not too sure about human,either! Momma was with her parents. They had been out to dinner while they were visiting. She stopped and tried to convince me to get into the car. Nothing doing! I was afraid...So, she took a granola bar out of the glove box. She walked home, dropping bites of snack bar on the ground. I was not hungry, but starved. I followed the crumbs all the way. Keeping a safe distance between us. Once we were home, Momma gave me food and water. It wasn't too long, I let her lead me into the fenced in frontyard. I would let her and Grandma touch me. I wasn't having anything to do with men. I was really afraid of men..... Didn't take long to figure out that I was full of ticks,fleas, and all kinds of parasites. They removed 100's of ticks from me. Treated me for the fleas. As to the parasites, it took all summer to rid me of them. I had so many kinds. Including hookworms. (big clue.. they are not native to ND.... I had come from somewhere else?) They also discovered that I had been thrown from a moving auto. (fear of autos) I had been nursed...No puppies were found. Once, I was settled down....I was introduced to Foxie. She was 2 yrs. old. She was about the same height and size. Back when I was starved and weighed about 15 pounds. Foxie weighed 20 lbs. Foxie and I became fursissies. We were great companions for each other. The vet said, I was probably a year older than Foxie. (This is how they determined my age). I was spayed so future puppies would not be a problem. Took all summer before I'd take a treat from Daddy hand and back up about 10 feet to eat it. Little by little, I began to trust again. As time passed they discovered, that someone had hit me with shovels,brooms,chains and doors... any of these items made me afraid...I would go into orbit way back then, when anyone handled any of these items.... I had never been inside a house...until my forever home. I had never had toys. Foxie had to teach me how to play with toys. I had never had a bath....Phewy!!!! Time pasted and I settled into my forever family. I discovered that bad people didn't come to our home. All these many years later, I love everyone. I am very affection. No one had to house train me. I was so happy to have a family and a home...I never went potty in the house. Foxie and I became great friends. Foxie wasn't boiling over with so much energy, once we had each other to play with. This gave Momma a big break...Foxie and I loved to hunt the prairie together with Momma. Foxie went to Rainbow Bridge in June of 2007. I was so sad and missed her so much. I withdrew from evryone for awhile. I grieved as much as Momma did.It was a tough year for me. My family didn't think, I'd last much longer. Finally, I stopped missing Foxie so much and things were better. Foxie has been gone for 3 yrs. I am now, 18 yrs. old. I sleep alot. I don't like to play to much anymore. I can't take the extreme cold or hot weather. I go out and do my business and back in I come. I'm a little hard of hearing now. I have arthritis. I started having little siezures a year ago. I've lost a few teeth. I've become fussy with what I want to eat. My family feeds me whatever, I will eat. I am content with being a senior citizen.I have now developed cataracts in both eyes.Between 2010-2011. I am very tolerant of Mazy.... The bouncing Princess of the Ponderosa. I've never once been cross with her. I just don't want to play the silly games anymore. Good weather days, I still like to lay outside and go for a short walk. I still like to have my ears rubbed. I like treats. I like to be brushed. I do a little hoppity thing called my Happy Dance! My time in this world is growing short. I'm slowing down a little more each day. I have some other health issues that are all age related. Mom is hoping that I go in my sleep. Foxie had a stroke and died within a few minutes in Momma's arms. While Daddy was trying to reach a vet. I dream about the Rainbow Bridge where Foxie is waiting for me. I look forward to Foxie and I being together again. Neither of us will be sick or old. We will run, play and hunt together as we once did. I have a wonderful, safe home here on the prairie. I've had a good life here in my forever home.

We were in the eye of a tornado in 1999. Now I am really afraid of thunder,lightening,harsh high winds and thunderstorms. I have anxiety attacks...whenever it is going to storm....

BIRTHDAY. I've been at the bridge four years now.
Gma and Mazy were so happy to see I've not been forgotten.

Mazy has been at the Doggie Hotel while Gma and Gpa have
been on vacation with the grandkids,daughter and son-in-law.
Raining today and Gma is trying to check into dogster.
Having trouble......

A pal made a birthday picture for me. Gma put it in our
puter. We try to add a picture by clicking on that on my
page. Nothing happens???????? We were able to open my diary.
Sure don't understand what is up now???? Anywho, we tried
clicking on the Community tab too. Our drop down menu
doesn't appear....We can't try to load a picture that way

On Mazy's page the add a picture will open. Other features
will not.... I guess, all we can do is thank the Kirk Puppers
and hope the fleas go away,very soon....
We will try and pmail our pals and hope this will work
for us?????

Things are very busy at the Ponderosa. Unpacked,did up all
the laundry. A dent in the inside chores was made. Gma/pa
tilled and weeded the veggie garden today. Picked up sticks
a couple times. Started raining so can't catch up on the mowing.

Foxie and I kept an eye on Mazy from the bridge. She ate and
did her normal potties this time. She made a doxie furiend
while there. She had her own toys,blankets,bed,food,treats,
water,etc.... Gma called to check on her...was told she was
doing fine. Even a smelly t-shirt with their scents on it.

They picked her up about 4 p.m. on Thursday the 12th. She
was hungry and thirsty when she got home. Her 1st., 2 poops
were normal. 12 hrs. we go again! Same fall-out
as before....Mazy's little gut betrays her! She had probiotics
everyday. Plus several other preventive measures.

Once home,the stress induced bacterial colitis hit her hard.
She was given the same medications as before. Digel 1 time,
Pancur Powder 3 days and antibiotic for 10 days. The antibiotic
is Metronidazole. Mazy is eating,sleeping and playing...
Just the way she always does...Mazy was happy to go home to her
own place. Didn't seem to be upset or anxious about where she was.
Mazy is sticking to Gma and Gpa like glue!

Mazy will fill you all in as soon as she has a chance.
Foxie and myself have been partying up a storm. Both of
us have June bridge days. My birthday was set years ago
as June 10. Looks like the Ponderosa and South Central ND
are going to have a wet June. Some of the annual flower
pots are too wet. Drooping from too much water........
The vegetable garden looks good, but can use some sunshine!
It was cleaned up today, before rain set in again.
Gma hoed weeds while Gpa ran the tiller between rows...
Temps. are cool. Rain is forecast everyday for a week.
No sunshine today and never made it to 70 ish... Stalled
out at 62. sure glad I'm at the bridge where the weather
is perfect!

Sending angel kisses to all

Howdy from the bridge...Mom,I've been watching
spring unfold on the prairie. It is as unpredictable
as I remember! I'm so happy the weather here is just
perfect all the time. Not too COLD or too HOT for me!

We requested a real nice day for the 1st. day of
Spring! Our request was granted...We sent you plenty
of sunshine and a day of 54. We were zooming
around with you and Mazy as you spent time outside.
I could see Mazy was having a blast! Now she has a
good case of Spring Fever.

Sorry about the skiff of snow the day before and
the day after....There were some Prairie Angel
Furs here who wanted to send snow to their families.
Their request was granted! I know,there are many
who like that cold stuff... I sure don't miss the
COLD! All snow is gone,except where Dad piled it
with a tractor. The ground will thaw soon... I
see your dwarfed irises are peeking through the
ground. I always loved the smell of the yard
with all the flowers blooming.

The weather will settle down and shape up pretty
soon...I see, Dad has 6 baby moos on the ground
already. They are always so cute! Maybe this year
there won't be any bottle babies? I was watching
today,when Dad lined up a truck to come and take
calves to sell this week.

So Dad is going to retire??? We are keeping our
paws all crossed up here,that he follows through
on that quickly. I know, both of you are tired
and it's time for a new chapter to unfold. I
can't believe the grand-kids are so big now!
10 and 12,where did the time go? They will be
on summer vacation by May 15th.

Foxie and I are so are going to take
the grand-kids to South Dakota on vacation. Something
they will always remember. Mt.Rushmore,Zoo,Water Park,
Gold Mine,Deadwood and Museums...Sounds like a Blast!
Mazy will do fine at the doggie hotel. Especially since
they have doxies too! I bet,she get to play with them.

Keep your Eyes open for the travel home. You'll find
just what you are looking for. Mazy will love it! She's
happy as long as she goes with you...She doesn't take
up much space. Interesting to see if, Dad can live in
small mobile house??? Funny how, now that he has
arthritis...His attitude towards the cold is changing.
You've fought the arthritis and fibromyalgia for 40 yrs.

Tell Great-Grandma "hi" from Foxie and myself. Enjoy
your time with her in May. Doesn't seem possible that
Great-Grandpa has been with us a year. We go fishing
everyday with the two Great-Grandpas. I'm still just
a water wader....Foxie still swims and swims and swims!

Mom, I'll always love you....
Sending Angel Kisses, Baby

A Letter From Your Pet In Heaven
December 18, 2013 at 4:27pm
To my dearest family,
some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know,
that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from the Bridge.
Here I dwell with God above.
Here there's no more tears of sadness.
Here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy
just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you
every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you
when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me
and He said, "I welcome you.

It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family,
They'll be here later on."

God gave me a list of things,
that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list,
was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night
the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you...
in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth,
and all those loving years,
because you are only human,
they are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry,
it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you
all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you,
you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain,
though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now,
than I ever was before.

There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it
by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy
and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world,
the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody
who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night
"My day was not in vain."

And now I am contented...
that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along
I made somebody smile.

God says: "If you meet somebody
who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up,
as on your way you go."

When you're walking down the street
with me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go...
from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going...
you're coming here to me.
