Aunties, me and mommy haven't been around much and probably won't be for awhile... We Really miss being here and wish we could be around more but see daddy has to have a big operation. We found out he has a bad growth, mommy said it was something called malignant, I don't understand but I know it's not good... And they have to go take it out and maybe some other stuff, I don't know..
And I have to go be boarded cuz mommy can't take me and will be gone a long time. Yep I gotta go get a flu shot today cuz the only place mommy trusts to keep me says I need one, well two really, this is the first one today.. I'm scared to go Aunties, I never been away from home before or sleep without being by mommy before.. Mommy's gonna take something that smells like home for me though. Guess I gotta be a big girl for mommy and daddy..
Anyway things aren't very normal for us right now, Mommy's all over the place. She's learning to do a lot more daddy stuff and even is going to learn to drive the tractor! Now that should be funny aunties cuz her feet don't reach the pedals, I think I need to operate them for her!! See it's getting cold here fast, it's in the 30s in the mornings! And mommy and daddy have to get everything ready here for the winter and mommy has to learn it all too, there's Lots she doesn't know and never did before..
Yeah I had some Great blogs to do, mommy even took all the pics but she hasn't been able to put them on here... And now they're old...
I didn't get to go to my dogtober fest Halloween party neither cuz well daddy wasn't up to it.. But mommy let me dress up anyway and make this to wish you all a happy Halloween!

But this last time was different, you'll see why!

Daddy doesn't know it yet cuz he's sleeping but he'll be soooo happy, I Love when we get to watch him! Thank you, thank you aunties for thinking of me, it made my stay Sooo much better but I still hope I don't ever have to go stay again!! Missy

Wow Aunties my day stared early today with a definite intruder, I had to announce it to Everyone, do you see him? Bet Auntie Julia does!
Here he is- it's Touché the turtle!
He's leaving now but I Have to go find him later- I Love Touche! Daddy says most people don't mess with a snapping turtle but not me, I nudge Touche with my nose to give him a kiss and he Loves it and Me! Mommy says as long as I'm nice and Touche doesn't mind I can kiss him!
Oh now's a good time to show you mommy rodies!
And her Lily of the Valley, I can't wait till they're all in bloom that's real pretty!
Soooo Dad comes and tells me and mommy that they just said there's like a 2 hour break in the rain so we can sneak in that walk mommy wants to take me on! Here's a real pretty flower we see on our walk, mommy thinks it's a wild mountain laurel like we have but ours is just starting to flower, this ones got pretty flowers now!
So Aunties we get almost to the far end of our walk and it happened... RAIN! Nooooo, they lied to us Aunties!!! So we headed back, in the pouring rain and we were Almost home when What should I Find??? I had to root it out cuz it was in Danger! It was sooo little and it was in the wash gully thingy that runs down the hill in the rain-- it was gonna drown!
Oh thank goodness I Got It! I was sooo worried I went and kissed it! Can you see it?? It's a Baby Bird! ** Note from mom- she did too, she went down to kiss it and the little bird turned around and Missy kissed it right on the break! The Absolute Cutest Thing I have ever seen!!
here he is, I call him sweetie tweetie!! I hope you can see him, he's sooo small and he's black and the pavement is black too. Anyway here I am getting him safely to the other side of the road where he's protected and won't drown. Whew that was close!
Hey Look what we have now Aunties, a dam! Yup looks like this didn't 'just happen' either-- I Think we have a Beaver!! I've been smelling something and dad thought he saw something swimming down here! I gotta check this out later!!
Oh wow Aunties I am sooo glad we are home, I'm Drenched! Ok maybe not drenched like some of you guys are sometimes but Trust me for someone who Hates Water this was a pretty rough day out in that rain! But I'm glad I was able to see Touché, to help, and to meet, sweetie tweetie he was a Real sweetheart! Now I just got to meet beave the beaver! I may not look wet here to you Aunties but trust me mommy is paying for having me out walking in that rain! ❤️Missy
Hi my name is Piper! I thought I'd introduce myself cuz well... I don't think Missy will...
Anyway here's My story! I came to live with Missy and mommy and daddy this past Saturday night! See mommy and daddy had agreed to foster me cuz I needed a home. Yeah the rescue place where mommy volunteers told her about me. See I was found as a stray down in SC, they don't know how long I was out on my own... I do but I ain't tellin! It sure was long enough to get in Really bad shape though... I was totally depleted they say~ I don't know what that is, but I sure was hungry... mommy says you can still see my ribs..
And I got a Really bad skin infection and lost a lot of my hair and my ears hurt really really bad... they put me on lots of meds when they found me in late February. I stayed with a foster down there for a few months cuz they couldn't even spay me for over a month, till I got some better.
Heres the picture they sent mommy and daddy when they found out about me!
They did a good job placing me in this pic you can't see all my bald spots and mats... ohhh yeah I had big ole mats, mommy spent hours the first night cutting them out... feels a lot better with them out now! Mommy's worked a lot on my coat and finally just cut me short cuz there was no way to hide these bald spots! I don't care, I feel better and mommy says it'll grow back! here I am now!
I was sooo happy to be home on Saturday night, I just cuddled up to daddy and he was, well... smitten!! On Sunday morning he told mommy I wasn't going Anywhere and that Missy would get used to me! Soooo they Adopted Me!! I am Beyond happy!! Well cept for One thing... Missy, she doesn't seem to want to be my friend... I Don't know why... Maybe you guys could put in a good word for me?? She says she wants to talk to some one on here called Bristolle???? Ooooh wait.. wait..here She comes....
Pipe Down there Piper Girl... this is My Bog, My friends and I can speak for Myself...
Missy here- Hey Bristolle Noel, I'm feeling your pain over here...text me girlfriend.. we need to talk and I don't want mommy to hear!
Oooh Aunties I woke up to Snow, I'm soooooo excited!
I got to run and play but it Really wasn't much snow was it??!

Ahhh that's better mommy, ya got my path cleared now?! This is Mr snow cleaner, he's gonna take care of makin my path from now on!!
OK this is what I'm talkin bout! Let's play an eat some Snow!!

Piper- So last night I have to go to my first dr visit, see I still scratch like crazy and mom says I need to get some meds... Missy Says she's going for moral support... should I be suspicious???
it's pouring down rain, and we All know Missy won't go out into the rain.. I learned the hard way, I stayed out in the rain and worse when I was on my own so I don't care and me an mommy go out in it so I can do my business now, but not Missy... Anyway Missy kindly says I can borrow one of her raincoats to go to the dr...
This Must be Missy's idea of a joke...
Missy- What?? I seriously Don't see the problem Piper!
Hey Look! I ain't never seen one of these before! Mommy says it's a booster seat so I can see out! Me and Missy are ready to go now! Oh and yeah I ditched that coat and mommy ordered me one of my own that fits!
Hey- Where'd Piper go??
Did somebody call me?? I thought I was just supposed to nap in here!
Oh hey I can see mom & dad now!
Oh Wow looky, I can see Lots out this way!
Oh Yeah This is Great!!
Sit down What? Why Mom?? This is Great fun!! Oh yeah Life is Good!
Well yeah the fun Did end when I saw we went to the dr... But Missy did stand up for me and protected me And put in a good word- ok Lots of words- to the dr for me.. she talks a lot to the dr!! The dr said I was a Keeper, I dunno what that meant but it musta been good huh? He said he thinks I'm about 3 1/2 yrs old, I weigh a bit over 12 lbs now and he said I could stand to gain to about 14 - 15 lbs. so I never will be as big as Missy, he said she had bigger bones! Oh and best part he gave me something for my itches!
Mommy says we get to go on a Real Outting, and not to the dr, tomorrow! Can't wait to ride in my new seat again!!Piper
Oooh Aunties it hasn't been a very good few days for me... See I got mommy up around midnight Friday nite / Sat morning and I didn't feel at all good... I was super restless, I couldn't even lay down, I just kept pacing and pacing and pacing all around. I Wanted to lay down but I Couldn't, it Hurt... mommy tried Everything she knew, ginger snap, Pepcid- I let out a Huge Burb after that but it didn't help Any... That went on All nite.. Then around 3am I started doing the weirdest thing, I'd lay on my belly and did a belly crawl Backwards, mommy didn't know What to think, I did that for hours.
Then daddy heard us, mommy was trying sooo hard not to disturb him but he came out and he didn't know What to think either. Mommy had been goggling Everything and was soooo worried. So she called emergency and they said I could come in if mommy was worried. But then I settled a bit so mommy thought I might get some rest but no.... By 5am I was back crawling and I started crying, I Never cry, and then yup I clawed at those stairs again. Mommy said that's It and took me to emergency.
I was pretty scared, I'd never been to the emergency hospital but they were nice. Cept the dr kept saying I looked like a frog... I don't look like a frog do I Aunties??! Anyway she checked me all out and she said she couldn't find anything... She thought it was all pretty odd too and it was good news in a way but not cuz we didn't know what caused it. So she gave me a nausea shot to help me settle. She said if it happened again I would need an ultrasound to see what was going on... That sounds scary, I hope it a Never happens again, so does mommy.
So we came home then, it had been a very looong nite... Mommy gave me some chicken and rice and I went to sleep. Mommy watched me for hours then she fell asleep too. We got up and I ate again cuz it was dinner time by then, then I went back to sleep, I'm sooo glad I can sleep and lay on my tummy now. Oooh do you know what else Aunties? That dr, the one who called me a frog, she said I was 'thick' too- hmmm mommy says she didn't even know me! Mommy an daddy always say I have a thick skull but that's Not what that dr meant... She said I needed to loose weight... What I was only 18.7lbs that's the Lowest I've Ever been! I don't think I like her anymore!
So see Aunties I Didn't get the outting I Thought I'd get, neither did mommy or daddy...
Have a good Mommy's day Aunties, my gift to mommy was I let her Sleep last night! She says All she needs is me to be all better! ❤️Missy
Hi Aunties, Me and mom haven't been around much for awhile now cuz quite honestly I've been taking care of mom... It wears me out cuz she is an Awful patient.. They say we are stubborn, hah they don't Know stubborn!
It all started back when mommy woke up with her eye swollen shut.. Umm No I Didn't kick her in the night! She had a stye and an eye infection and had to get meds like I got for mine. It's better now but for some reason her eyes are still blurry so she don't see so good.
Then she had to go in one of those tubes, she called it a MRI I think, cuz her whole left side goes numb and tingles. And so she has to go have her neck pulled out all the time now, traction I think she said, cuz her disks are disintegrating and pinching a nerve. Geez must be her Last nerve cuz well honestly Aunties you're probably the lucky ones not having her around much!
So yeah, life was actually still Ok at that point. Then mommy went out to water her plants and the grass out front was tall from all the rain.. An her plants were up by the woods... And mom was in a hurry, to go have her neck pulled out.. An umm yeah.. She got a huge tick and it wasn't pretty.. She had an awful reaction to it, not like anything she'd ever had from a tick before. So the dr had to shut down her immune system cuz nothing else would stop her reaction. And yeah... Ever since then she's been on meds for Lyme disease. Both her an daddy have lyme now. But since mommy got hers she Really hasn't been worth much... No playing, she's Always tired, and not much energy.. So daddy's doing a lot for me And for mom right now. I Love when daddy feeds me! Mommy says I'm gaining Lots of weight, that she can hardly pick me up, but I think she's just Weak! Ain't that Right Aunties! can't be Me!! mommy said I needed more exercise cuz ya know she really can't play much with me and our walks had to stop with her being sick and all this hot weather...
soooo mommy tried to play with me the other day Oooh Aunties I can't hardly even talk about it.... Well she also gets these awful leg and feet cramps now and yeah.... She got a really bad toe cramp and she sorta kinda landed right down on her toe, right into the hardwood floor.. yup you probably guessed it... She Messed up her toe real bad! Oooh Aunties I Really need a new home right now, mommy is a Mess!!
I felt sooo bad for mommy, i been her nurse and takin care of her ya know..! Yup I have, I've been her medicine pup! I gave her my new himalyain chew I got for my bday, here Look! I put it under Mommy's pillow so she can sleep with it, if It doesn't make her better Nothin will!!
And I do ancient medicine doggie chants over em, it has to be Real dark for the chants to work, hope you can see me! And so I gave her my Second himalyain chew too! Yeah mommy felt bad that I gave her my chew sooo she gave me Another one! But I just buried it under her pillow Too! Now maybe mommy will get better doublely fast!
So anyway Aunties That's why me an mommy aren't around much or for very long when we are.. Mommy's arms an stuff go numb and she can't do much typing.. you have No idea how looong it took mommy to type up this note... I only thought she was slow before! so we're here when we can be for now.
Oh speaking of taking looong... Cuz of all this mommy can't really groom me too much or for too long neither. So, it took her Forever, but she cut me down. Here I am but You Won't recognize me! And yeah member mommy still can't see good so yup I'm All crooked. And she has that bad toe too, not sure What All it caused but I'm sure it figured in this awful haircut too somehow!
hoping to be back more often soon! ❤️ Missy
i wanted to get on Real quick and give you an update! Mom said I could have a few minutes, I Really miss being here so mommys trying to let me be on more! Anyway I went to my new vet this week to get my second flu shot so I can stay there! About 2 weeks and I'll be going so I had to check it out again. I Love that place Aunties I just go in there like I own it and Everyone there likes me and says I'm pretty and guess What Aunties I weigh Less there too- ooooh I Love that place!
Anyway mommy had him recheck my ears and they're doing Great and my new meds work and I don't chew on my feet and oooh its been a great change for me, I hope mommy lets me keep going there, so much different than my other vet.. And he looked at my unicorn horn too, I think mommy told you about that already and Auntie Pam told mommy the right name! But I Like unicorn cuz mommy says they're beautiful magical creatures just like me! Mommy tried to take a picture after my bath yesterday so you could see it but I really didn't want her to... It's on the left by my eye.. See it? The dr said it was ok something called benign, it would keep growing and I think when it gets bigger I'll make it Pink so I can be a Pink magical unicorn! Mommy says we gotta go now! Hope to be back soon! Missy
Oh boy Aunties, I wasn't gonna have a blog today cuz mom and dad both had appointments, daddy had to go get meds again for his tick bite, another month on meds so that Lyme disease hopefully doesn't get worse again from this latest tick...
Anyway I didn't think I'd get a walk but daddy got back and could watch our St Patti's Day roast, mmm mommy made me my Own roast too! Sooo mommy took me for a short walk which quickly became more!! Look...
Do you see it? My First find, a piece of porcelain buried down in where the big rain washed away our road! I thought maybe it was part of what mommy and I found last year but....NO! Mommy tucked it away and we continued our walk but something wasn't right...
So on the way back I went to the same area but up higher and started sniffing some more and There it was.. See it?! A bigger piece buried even deeper! I showed mommy and she dug it out!! Yay another find!!
Mommy cleaned it off for me, see the outside is that grey porcelain. Sorry if you can't see it too good, it's still wet but I just Couldn't wait to show you!!
and the inside is dark brown with gold flecks! I say this bowl is Definitely from the Indians! Daddy's being mean and saying it's probably a dog bowl... So ok maybe, but it's an Indian's Dog Bowl! Besides that, dog bowls don't have gold flecks inside, it's probably Real Gold, it Is St Patti's Day and it could be My Gold at the end of the rainbow! And daddy gets none cuz he was Mean, he said I only found it cuz it had dog food smells... Geez Really I have a roast waiting for my dinner why would I want dog food?!!
See this is why it Has to be Indian...
This is the bowl parts that mommy and me found last year in kinda the same area. I said they were from the War... Daddy said more like from the neighbors... Geez he's Mean! Finally, after I found this bowl today he said Ok, Maybe the General had a nice bowl with roses like this one! See!! And we had that humongous rain and the ground is Lots lower now where I found this bowl today so it Has to be Indian, Right?!! Daddy says I just have a Very Good imagination! But ya gotta admit I find some Great stuff outside my place!
Well, I hope you like my new finds, I'm gonna be huntin hard for more pieces now!! But gotta go eat my St Patti's Day roast now! Mmm mommy has cabbage, Irish bread and hot cross buns for us too-- Gotta Go! Have a Great St Patti's Day! ❤️Missy

But Now for My news!!!
Aunties member when that big doggie came and wasn't nice to me a few weeks ago? Well I haven't wanted to go off our property since then... And mommy was Ok with that, she even let me go in the woods! She said she didn't think the ticks were still out but even so they weren't as bad as that mean doggie!

Oh Aunties I just Have to tell you about all the excitement I've had the last few days!
But First mommy says I Have to warn you cuz this stuff is normal to us around here but it may gross some of you out, so you may want to stop now and Not look at the pics, except of course the last one of Me!
Ok now for the excitement!!
Well first you know daddy is Still working on those crazy wood piles! I now have 6, yes count them 6 in my backyard and two out side my yard... Soooo he was moving wood from one of them this week and guess What he found! A snake, yup a snake in the wood pile! Ya know the ole sayin, well we have em! Daddy kept finding this one cuz he wouldn't kill it! He said it was a 'good' snake, mommy says there isn't such a thing and if he killed it he wouldn't keep finding it!
Here ya go a picture of a 'good' snake if you've never seen one! This one is the biggest one confused with a copperhead so they say but it's not poisonous... But he's still poised to strike- Yikes good thing it's mommy there and Not me!
Ok now Aunties mommy says if you haven't stop reading yet and are thinkin well..that's not so bad... You May want to stop here! Last chance!!
Sooo I went for my walk yesterday and I member Aunties you said you wanted to see what I find on my walks soooo here it is, my big find! It was just like on Bones Aunties! Do you watch that show? I Love it! And I was Bones cuz I'm smart like her!! And here's what I found!
And here's a close up. Poor Bambi...
Mommy was the picture lady, she could handle that cuz duh how hard was it to identify?!! And daddy was the bug man, he was tryin to determine time of death! But silly daddy he said 12-24 hrs but that Can't be right! Know why?? Cuz the day before the FedEx man got stuck in our drive, he was here almost all day, at least 5 hours to get him towed outta here. Yup I went and told All my friends, mommy let me walk through the neighborhood just like the town crier tellin all my friends! Sooo see Aunties it Had to be less than 12 hours old, That's why I'm Bones, I'm Smart!!
Well Sooo then mommy did a full doo, haircut, b*** word and all on me But right Before I went in the b*** guess what daddy found?! Another snake in the wood pile but this time it was a Copperhead... Ick.... And while I was in the b*** daddy was wrestling with the copperhead... Daddy won!! Here ya go Aunties, look he's still tryin to Bite! Daddy said this makes his 42nd kill and member he doesn't kill those 'good' ones... Just the bad poison ones that would hurt me.. Like this guy...
It sure was a long hard day so mommy let me have a nice rest on my warm blankets just outta the dryer to end my day!! Hope you enjoyed my day as much as I did Aunties, I just Love being smart like Bones! I'm a bone findin bad snake killin Tzu! ❤️Missy

Lots and Lots of gravel so daddy can start fixing our road!! Oh Boy!! It was waaaay to big for me to climb, bet Tara could though!
But not me, I went back here, besides I had to check to see how it compared to the old gravel, ya know I'm the Inspector!
And the Queen of the Hill, even if it's the smaller hill!
And I had to check my Christmas Tree! Yup I have my Very Own Christmas tree and its Huge!! And me and mommy have to keep watch on it cuz daddy and these guys just keep putting this rock stuff waaaay too close to My tree and its gonna kill it... Yup it's too close Again! Geez, I gotta go tell daddy...! But wait...first...

But now that Springs here and there's Lots of work to be done you'll see a Lot more of this part!! I have to make sure all the work is done Right! We're headed to the road to the barn. See..?
Well it may be hard for you to tell cuz we don't really keep this road up much, since the trees fell across... But this is the old farm road that goes to the barn. See where we live used to be a Pig Farm! Mommy loves that, being raised in Iowa and all, she Loves Pigs so she's happy she lives on an old pig farm! Anyway we're off to the barn!
So I can check the equipment and make sure it's ready so daddy can start work! He's got Lots of work to do so this has to be ready! Yup looks good, I don't see no mice living in here!!
So since we came out to the barn, I'll show you the pasture! Yup this used to be where the pigs lived! Now daddy lets it grow up so when he bush hogs it then Bambi has some good food! Bambi Loves that!! But I can't come out here then cuz snakes are out here, I have to wait till its cut too, but mmmm there's Lots of good Bambi smells then so it's Ok!
I gotta check on my bluebirds house. They've already moved in an all but sometimes Woodsy (our barn owl) or Hawky (our hawk) come and perch on my bluebirds house. I sure hope mommy can catch a picture of them they're pretty! But I have to let them know I'm here protecting my bluebirds ya know! Oh that funny black thingy is so Sammy doesn't climb up there and eat my birds...
Oh mommy says you couldn't see any of that very good so here's a picture of the pasture and the bluebird house. But I'm not in it so you may just wanna skip that picture!
