I must tell you I just got saved my mom is my hero.
She saved me from most certain death.
I followed dad, and he shut the door and sat down then I smelled something dying or dead, am not for sure which. Then I started to black out, but lucky I heard mom walk by the closed door and could let out a whimper.
Yes she saved me, let me out of the bathroom. Dad was supposed to be "reading" but it sure smelled like something else.
Dustydog, just thankful to still be alive.

Well we are half way through our week just 2 more days and wooof we get to go for a ride. And probably more treats and oh i just can't hardly wait. hope to see you all on the weekend if you want to hear of our adventrues!
licky boy dusty.

I love my mom!

Mom's cookies are "the bomb" You could cook them in the oven but its 100 plus here so she cooks em on the grill outside but they are good. Even before they were cooked, we got samples and YUM. She looked up some recipies on the dog cookies websit and then made up her own recipie. so here it is. I don't know why she came up with the name of these cookies.

Persnickety snaps

preheat oven to 350 degrees


1 cup chicken or beef broth

1 cup dry powdered milk

2Tbsp parmesean cheese (if you have it)

5 Tbsp. honey

1 1/2 cups Peanut butter. (any kind)

1/2 cup margarine or shortening (mom used butter flavor shortening)

1 tsp. garlic powder ( so humans will not want to eat our cookies)

2 cups quick oats

4 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (plus enough for flouring the work surface).

Put eggs, dry milk, broth and parm. cheese (shredded cheddar would be good too.) blend with mixer. Melt peanut butter honey and marg. in microwave 20 sec. add to mixture. Add 1 tsp garlic powder then add 2 cups quick oats, blend. Add whole wheat flour 1 cup at a time. at least 4 cups and no more than 5 cups. (watch the dough. if it gets too dry add some liquid vegetable oil, if too dry to roll add more flour.

roll 1/2" thick bake for 15 min. and don't forget to let some scraps hit the floor before they bake.

Notice the Drool on her chest. That is why golden girl is not the "girl of my dreams".

There she goes again, running her mouth. All she has to do is take the cookie, but oh no, BArf.. BARf... drool dog that T Bear I don't know how I stand it.

got more to show you. Mom bakes Good cookies!

Hey Ya'll this has been a banner day. The mom here made cookies the dad took us all for a ride. And the grill is still going so there is more to come. A poor ole dog like me can't ask for much more than that.
Uncle Steve stopped by, so mom sent some cookies to my dog cousins. That's o.k. I guess we can share what mom made today. She does monster cookies when she makes 'em cuz we have lots of dog friends and relatives.
Sorry got to go now the bad dad is yelling for mom to help him cook on the grill he is so helpless. I swear he can't do nothin without us.
be back later with our pic's of today's cookin' hope you all had as good of day as we did here!

It is a glorious day! I found some dog cookie recipies when I was paying back visits from some new friends. So guess what? I got my mom ready to do some baking. I will try to find time to take some pictures and maybe we can share recipies too.
But now i gotsta GO. Get my mom busy in the kitchen. Whoo hoo
dog drools all around. waggs too dustydog in the baking mode today (ok more just eating) Later dudes.

Morning, its almost 6a.m. here and its a Friday, whoohoo its the weekend. What does that mean you ask? I will get to go for a ride in the truck. That is my favorite thing to do, go for a ride. I don't care where to or what we ride in. I just I love, love, love to go for rides. The wind in my hair, the wind blowing my ears back. What a feeling. I can hardly wait. I think I will go wake up mom right now and see if we can go for a ride.
Mmmm, maybe I better wait just a minute. I remember her saying something about a haircut and a bath today. Yep, she did say that last night. I ain't too keen on the bath thing or the hair cut, but if I say so myself I do look pretty spiffy when she gets done. Well but then she will say " oh you good boy dustyd0g needs to go for a ride." Yup yea then we get to go in the truck and ride around the lake and see people and sometimes dogs are there, dogs I don't know but would like to meet.
And sometimes we see them big big dogs they are funny looking dogs I think mom called em horses. Yea that's what she said there's some people that ride them. I am glad I am not one of them. Well I think I will wake up mom get the ball rolling, some breakfast, then a bath and a run around the house to dry off, roll on the couch and carpet. A little clip clip and snip the nails and I will look sooo smooth. You'll see.
Later on I'll maybe have pics' of todays adventures.
Til then,
Dustydog til you see slickery boy, over and out.

I am mad. I got my picture lost at the bottom. I will have to add another, so I can see my beautiful face first. Before them girls.

My mom thought I should talk a little about my "sisters" so I came back t0 introduce them.
Here's a picture of T Bear. She's runnin her mouth here just like she does all the time. She's not really that bad but I have a reputation to uphold. For a girl she's not too bad.
She just turned 2 on July 1st. We get puppy paws ice cream when there's a birthday so that is cool.
Next here is a picture of Shirley , she's my favorite of the girls cuz well that is personal and I won't kiss and tell. But my mom is looking for a boyfriend for her and I don't think I like that idea too much. It is another one of those human things that I just don't agree with them messing with my world. I got a stinkin feeling I won't like the outcome if mom finds her a boyfriend.
Anyway, those are my girls and as you can see they ain't too bad of lookers and for girls they are alright. I guess I have to put up with them.
Well like I said earlier send me a photo and drop me a line I'd love to hear from you. Later on dudes.
Dustydog the wonder blog (ha that rhymed)

My name is Dustydog.
I live at Kanopolis Lake in Kansas.
Mom thought I should get a hobby.
Well I am too lazy to go jogging so here we are.

Boy, mom should have touched up that photo. It scares me a little. I don't have glowing yellow eyes. Jeez, humans. They just jump in and do stuff without thinking.
Well if I ran my life like that. I'd probably be dead, run over by a car or something. But I am one cool cat uh er ' I mean dog. No cats here no huh Uh. just me and my Girls.

Yup I am a pretty smooth operator. I got my chicks yea thats right with a "S". Two beauties my mom calls em my sisters but that ain't true. They can be a real pain but hey they are girls. My mom is the only girl that is not a pain like most girls. Mostly cuz she cooks good and she "drops" stuff for me, sometimes on the sly when the girls ain't looking I like that best.

I am a one of a kind. Thats true enough. My mom found me about 10 years ago in a free ad. She came and got me and I was pretty happy to get away from all them other brothers and sisters. But I missed my dog mom for a day or two. Everything was cool and happy and they taught me not to go to the potty in the house. That wasn't hard for me at all (sometimes its hard for girls to learn to go outside). Then I started feeling not so good. My stomach got all icky and I got the D word and after one day of that mom took me back to the vet and then I don't remember much after that for a week I guess then I got to feeling better and my mom came and got me, and I don't think I was ever so happy. I got to go back home.

Mom called and found out all my dog family had died. I was lucky my mom loved me enough to have my shots started before the sickness started and the Dr. (I dont' really like Dr's . ) saved me.

Then there was this other time, I think I was about 5 (in people years). I was out in the yard just minding my own business then I heard this sound .. kinda like a hissing sound.. and BAM this stinking rattle snake bit me right on the lip. Well I don't remember a lot until the next day and my face was so swollen I scared myself in the mirror. Mom said I sure got lucky then too. If that stinking old snake had got the 2nd fang in my nose I just might not be here to tell ya about it today.

Sure did teach me about snakes though. I saved my mom and my brother Shelby (God rest his soul) once. I got mad when I seen that snake in my yard. I barked and barked and My dad come and ran it away. It wasn't a rattler so dad said he could live if he stayed in the pasture out back. But I say they all better stay outta my yard if they know what is good for them.

Well, it will be nice to meet some dog folks and other dogs I hope. but now its getting on nap time and my toenails is getting tired of this typing stuff. Maybe I should have gone out for the jogging thing this is a little like work.
Ahhrrr see ya
out around the yard? your best dog friend,
Dusty Dog.
