If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
...Then You Are Probably .........
The Family Dog!!!

M.O.M. just noticed that today my 7,000th visitor stopped by my dogie blog! Wahoo!!!!! We have had so much fun writing for all of you. And there is so much more to come in this New Year!
And M.O.M. is pretty excited about the visitor counter widget she has on this site. We think is is pretty amazing that out of 170 countries in this big would of ours, 114 different countries have stopped by my blog for a visit. We hope they are enjoying us and come back often.
And one more milestone for us....we are just about ready to post our 350 blog post.
So thanks to all of our wonderful readers for sticking with us as our little Mistaya has grown up over these past 2 years. And for sticking with us through our big move to our new home by the sea. We will do our best to keep our site entertaining and worthy of your following.
Thank you all...Big Hugs and Wags from Mistaya and M.O.M. Gail

I saw on Jazzi's blog today that his mom had posted a funny picture of a street sign.
M.O.M. said she had one too so she is posting it for Jazzi and his mom.
We hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
Oh, one more thing GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our weather is warming but we are having our winter rains. I don't mind the rain...I don't like the snow.
And of course the dog doesn't care if we have both..she just wants to go on her daily walk-abouts.
We encountered another Blue Heron not far from the house today.
Now, the ducks and the large Canadian Geese...that's another story. As soon as either of them see us coming along the path, they all launch into a loud chorus that half the city can hear.
And of course she is going to go running their way to see what all the commotion is about.
I "borrowed" this post from my other blog..thought you might enjoy it.

Yes, this is what our yard by the sea looks like at the moment.
Little Mistaya went outside to do her chores and somewhere along the way she found one of her well hidden rawhide chew bones under all this snow!
Of course she didn't even make it to the front door when she remembered that inside the house was her empty food bowl so she is staying outside to eat this treasure...no matter what the winter conditions.
But as you can see, a blizzard has hit our little home and she seems to be either disappearing or trying to pretend she is a new style snowman!
You see, Mistaya is on a diet and I am sure she decided she would rather take her chances with the stormy weather than give up this yummy, soggy, snow soaked rawhide chew for an empty food bowl.
Of course I became worried about her so I finally got her to come in the house before she froze like a snowman.
Oh, She came in because I let her bring in her rawhide snow soaked chew. That was the only way she really wanted to come inside on this wintry night!
Of course the snowflakes that had accumulated on her back had frozen into one big black dogie hair ice cube.

Mother Nature was playing games with us today while we were on our walk.
M.O.M., and I were both enjoying the brilliant sunshine when suddenly it started to pour rain!!
And boy it sure rained hard!!
But this rain didn't stop us from going on our wonderful long walk. And of course in just a few moments the rain had stopped and the beautiful sun continued to shine on us.
If you click on the picture to enlarge it you may seem more of the rain.

M.O.M. and I went on another hour long walk today. Gosh, that's 3 this week. And I am loving it!
M.O.M. said I must tell you that this is the path we walked on but this is an old photo. No, she didn't commit the ultimate crime by forgetting her camera. But she did forget to bring fresh batteries! So no new pictures today.
But of course I really never notice when she does take all those pictures but I must admit I did hear some strange words when she discovered she could not take any photo's today.
But I had a very good day today with the walk and several puppy naps.

I heard M.O.M. putting on her walking shoes today so I got real excited hoping I was going to get to go with her. Yes, I usually make sure I am at the door and ready to go when she gets to the front door!
Of course she always let's me go with her.
And I must say it was one of the best walks we have been on in a long time.
We headed down the street and I got real excited when I realized we were going to walk on the harbor trail.
As we approached the end of the street I realized that M.O.M. was letting me go on this walk without my leash! Oh boy! This is going to be the best walk ever!
We walked farther around the harbor on our trail than we had ever walked before. And we saw many new sites too. M.O.M. was real excited when 2 American Bald Eagles flew very close to us and she was able to get a few pictures of them before they flew on with their journey.
Of course I ran and ran exploring everything everywhere. So many new smells and sites. We came to a fork in the road and at first took the trail to the left. But several yards down the trail we came to a bridge. Unfortunately the bridge surface was made of a type of grating and it frightened me when I approached it. And M.O.M. didn't want to have to carry me over this rather long bridge so we went back and took the trail to the right.
This new trail went on forever and ever! But because we were on this new trail all by ourselves, M.O.M. decided that we should turn around and head back because we were already more than a half hour from our street. She said we will come back here when M.O.D. is with us and see where this long straight trails actually goes and see if it has an end.
So off I went running everywhere...as usual.
I am sure M.O.M. noticed that as we approached the beginning of our street, that I wasn't running any more. But walking along the side of the street heading home.
So M.O.M. wasn't surprised to walk into the living room not long after we returned home to find me asleep in the middle of the room. Just moments before this picture was taken I had been very busy chewing on the rawhide that you can see in the picture.
Yes, this is a embarrassing photo of myself as I didn't know I feel asleep with my little leg straight up in the air!!
But gosh, I am soooo tired!

Me and CatSister are on our scheduled team time for Neighborhood Watch and as you can see we are both taking our jobs very seriously!
No one gets by us unobserved on this street.
Strangely there a few people who cross the street to walk on the other side of the street when they see me in the front yard. I did hear M.O.M. talking to M.O.D. about it and she said one of the gentlemen told her that he is more afraid of a silent, watchful dog than a barking dog who is voices his alarm.
Geez, a sweet dog can't win sometimes!! I just want a biscuit for heaven's sake!
