Barkin at Potatoes

Ok, so yu furs know that I live in Idunno, famous fur it's potatoes, spuds, taters. Whutever. An I live out in the country an there are fields 'round my place.
Spud fields this year. Well, there's sum wheat growin cross the road. But ofur there an right next to my place this year is gonna be spuds. That's whut the locals call 'em. Spuds.

An it is spud plantin time o' year.
Lemme tell yu, there is sum big ol' quipment they use when they're plantin.

Alla this stuff was parked right ofur there to the west of my place.







Good barkin! All this stuff had been used to plant the field on the uther side of the road. Same outfit wuz gonna plant that field so they parked all the quipment there.
Then it rained. I guess they can't plant their spuds in the mud. So the quipment sat there ofur the weekend.





I kept my eyes on that stuff. I kinda got used to seein it ofur there an din't bark it so much.





But yesserday, all the workers drivin white pick-em-up trucks showed up. Good barkin then.

They hadta finish up the field cross the road first. Here's one of the deals goin by OP Zoe. Yep, efun a guy rides up there to keep an eye on those spuds in that big red thingy.





An then they worked in the field to the west o' my place. Finished it all up. Took away alla the quipment.
Now it's all empty ofur there. I can see alla way down to the nosy neighbor's place.
I did bark a lil coyote guy an a hen pheasant this mornin. I can see better now but I sure like to bark those worker peepoles. Now the lil men will come round to set out the irrigation pipe. I will bark them up real good.
Always sumfin good to bark at round here.

Coyote!

Barked one real good this mornin! I wuz up on OP Zoe when I first saw the critter. He wuz headin to go 'round the east side of my place.
Startin barkin - a lot. Tux jumped up on OP Zoe an started barkin.
Mommy let us outside.
Now 'member, my yard is fenced. We ran ofur there, still barkin, o' course.
That coyote had crossed the road by then an wuz runnin through the neighbor's pasture.
The nerve o him! He stopped an turned to look at me an Tux! He went a lil bit farther an turned an looked again. He wasn't in any rush.
We wuz still barkin at him to high-tail it outta there.
He turned tail an started to mosey off. Mommy had us come inside. We got cookies.
Durn coyote. Don't come 'round here no more.

* Mommy here. I could have gotten a great picture of the dogs barking at the coyote. But I didn't want to risk coming back in for the camera. Even with a tall fence between them, I just didn't trust that coyote to not come "too close".*

Oh Yoo Hoo! YOO HOO!

I got me a 'ward from Whitley the Westie an from Buddy
They are sum o' my pals frum the very broken Dogster place. Thanks to both uv yu fur the 'ward!






This 'ward was started up by a purdy kitty cat by the name of Nerissa

5.  Enjoy a tasty treat! I am all ofur this rule!

Now fur the 3 things I have to celebrate:

Good as new!

I am back on my game! Jus' step aside Tux, I am takin ofur security again.
First thing this mornin, I saw a big ol tractor jus right ofur there. Barked it up good. Then the farmer dood got outta the tractor an talked on his cell phone.

He was Out standin in his field!

BOLBOLBOLBOL! Do yu get it? I jus thought of that lil pun. Really.
I crack myself up.

Anywho, tractors, pick-em-up trucks, irrigation trailer thingys, the brown truck, a worker man truck that pulled into My driveway, mailman, jogger, kids on 4-wheelers. Yup. Barked 'em all up real good! From OP Zoe or outside in my yard.

I am good as new. Mommy is hollerin at me 'most alla time to be quiet!
But that's not gonna happen.
Zoe is On The Job!

I Am Back - Hold on *

Ok, so this deal with my bobbim blowin out is gettin old. I am tired of feelin yucky. Gonna jus bark it off!
Tux isn't doin a good job with the security work. I've tried to teach him. He's doin the best he can. But without lil me. Well, it's jus not the same.
Plus, I heard Mommy an Daddy talkin that if I weren't doin much better, they was gonna call the V E T 'bout me. Yikes! Don't wanna go back there so soon!

This was me yesserday:

Jus' not feelin the best
I jus' haven't been too perky. They have even been makin me sleep in a doggie crate, so's I din't mess up the bed covers.

But!
I Am Back!
Here's me now:
On duty on OP Zoe!
I haven't been up on OP Zoe since Sunday when I had the blow out.


Hope I din't disapoint any of yu when I was off duty. I am kinda famous fur my security wurk.
I'm back, maybe not quite hunnerd per sent but I'll get there.

* Since barkin this entry, I got pooped out again. I'm offa OP Zoe an back on the blue pillows like in the first piccie. Or I might be on a doggie bed in the livin room.
Not quite there yet.

I had a blow-out

I jus got back frum the V-E-T! Got me sum med-ee-sin to take.

Lemme tell yu bout this deal.

Mommy got up real early o'clock Sunnay mornin. I stayed in bed, like always. Got up fur breakfast. When Mommy went back to make the bed, she saw it.

Blood! My cute lil Schnauzie grrl blood!

She came back out to take a look at where the blood had come outta me.
It was my back end side. My left anal gland thingy had 'sploded! Poor lil me!
Mommy gotted a warm, moist rag and held it to my lil bobbim. That felt kinda good.
Now, we live in the toolies an takin me to the vet onna Sunnay woulda been a problem. Daddy was at his monthly NG drill an Tux can't really stay home alone without goin toadally nutzo.
So Mommy jus watched me like a hawk yesserday an I wented to the the vet this mornin. Daddy got home yesserday evenin. He tooked me to the vet.
I got me a fever. Dr. S cleaned out my anal glands an talked to Daddy bout them. Blah, blah, blah.
So I gotta take 2 pills a day fur a week or sumfin. Already had 1 pill inside sum cheese!
I did real good at the vet though. I din't growl or try to bite the vet. Yu'd think that woulda 'pressed him but he tol' Daddy I needa have my toofers cleaned sumtime affer the med-ee-sin is used up.
Grr to havin to go back!

Sorry, no piccies of my poor lil took-us an the blow-out part. Vet said it's startin to scab over so it's not as yucky lookin now. 

An we learned sumfin new 'bout Mini Schnauzers. We are kinda prone to gettin the di-a-beet-eez. If we start drinkin a lot o' water an then havin "accidents" our pawrents should let the vet person know 'bout it.
An small dogs are more likely to get the splodin anal gland deal.

Ok, TMI maybe.
I gotta take a nap now.

Oh an jus to let yu know I really din't feel too good, I haven't been doin my usual security work. Hardly any barkin comin outta this lil grrl.

Wurdless Wenesday - My 3 Deers

Who am I tryin to fool? Wurdless Wenesday?
No way! Gotta bark!

I saw 'em first out my Back-'O-The-Loveseat-Lookout winnow (utherwise known as OP Zoe). Had 'em stopped in their tracks. Barked so much Mommy made Me and Tux go outside to finish the job.
She finally got her piccie takin box workin. Almost too late. Here's My 3 Deers


See 'em way down there? They's headin to the river bottom in all those trees there. The momma is leadin the way, her 2 fawns follow along. They are jus 'bout as big as their momma. I see these 3 almos' evfurry day.

Here's a kinda tricksty piccie. Can yu spot all 3 now? Hmm, this is the same place as my porky pine wented the uther day. There's a irrigation ditch thing there, alla the critters cross over the lil road.







Here's a guy I see most times in the wheat field 'cross the road. We mus' be in his turf. The uther day he came right into My front yard!

Can yu see Mr. Ring Neck Pheasant? A red-tailed hawk came flyin over and the pheasant took cover in the shadows uner the lilac.


When he felt it was safe, he came out an Mommy got a nice piccie of him. Hansum guy, huh?

So much fur my Wurdless Wenesday! Bol!
