Jazz #162121

Jazz #162121 Sunday blogging for us, Mom's been home with us all day doing some scrapbooking and relaxing. It's been a very chilly day so we are all cuddled up with blankets! We have some very exciting news, we have invited a new bunny into the family. His name is Joker (BOL at the Batman villian names ;) ) and he's a 1 year old Jersey Wooly (we believe.) He came home with us on the 13th. Momma's uncle and aunt did not want him anymore and offered him to us. He must've been sum what neglected considering when we brought him home, he had no food and his water dried. He is very shy too, but he has been very active when hes around Harliequin. We have a picture of them snuggling together on our pages :) Their smallanimalchannel profiles are Harliequin #271792 & Joker #273179 . Hoping the weather is much warmer where you are! Leaving you a vote! Greyhound Kisses, Jazz

Only 45 this morning with a feels like 39 due to 15 MPH winds that won't stop blowing! So mom says it's an indoor day for us. But mom will Lunge Paige and do showmanship practice again with her. Then free lunge Indy and Bullseye in the indoor arena. Then you know what it is, it's NFL Football Sunday! Mom and I for couch time and snacks! Wonder what we'll have today?? Mom just saw on the weather alert, going down to 29 degrees tonight with frost warnings. Oh boy, time for the horses heavier blankets and my barn coat! We've got the wood burner going now full blast, heating up the house and keeping us toasty! Labby Hugs & Licks, Harley.

The Vet said Nonnie is doing a really great brushing technique, Gracie's teeth were in great condition, Vet pull a loose tooth in the front of her mouth *********Congratulations King T.J. ~Top Dawg~ September********** *^*Snuggles ```n``` Love, Auntie Karen ~Sheba's Mom~ making my DOTM Photos*^* thank you Supporting My DoTm RuN *****HAPPY ALASKA DAY ~*~OCTOBER 18, 2014~*~ FUN FACTS***** What Part of Alaska was Occupied by Japan in World War II? As far as Japanese attacks on non-continental states during World War II are concerned, the attack on Pearl Harbor gets the press. But in 1942, Japan bombed and landed troops on the Aleutian Island chain, and subsequently occupied the Islands of Attu and Kiska. It was a battle both against people and against the elements, and thousands died. Because the area was so remote and the weather so bad, it took the United States almost a year to claim back the area.^**.~.**^. *********TRIVIA.^**.~.**^.WHAT EXACTLY IS ALASKA DAY********* On March 30, 1867, U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward purchased Alaska from Russia for the price of $7 million or, roughly two cents an acre, because Alaska is made up of a lot of acres. At the time, the land was considered largely worthless, and the deal was ridiculed as what you've probably heard was called "Seward's Folly." The land formally transferred over on October 18th of the same year, and that day is now celebrated by trivia quizzes the world over.^**.~.**^. Nowadays, Alaska accounts for twenty-five percent of the country's oil production, most of its Salmon, Crab, Halibut and Herring, and apparently, even makes sure kids get letters from Santa Claus every year. Maybe it wasn't such a bad purchase after all.^**.~.**^. In 1952, a town in Alaska was named "The North Pole" in hopes of drawing a toy manufacturer to the area, apparently from people figuring that toy manufacturers prioritized town names above things like, you know, shipping costs. But the name seems to have worked out. While going to the actual North Pole is pretty challenging, tourists can make it to Alaska. People come each year to visit the place which has street lights decorated like Candy Canes, Police Cars colored Green and White (the Ambulances and Fire Trucks are Red), and a series of streets with names like Santa Claus Lane and Kris Kringle Drive.^**.~.**^. In addition, a store there called Santa Claus house has sent, according to their website, almost 2 million letters to kids and adults around the world from people who wanted a letter with that North Pole postmark affixed. The local Post Office there will also send out the letters you mail them with that same postmark. *********TRIVIA.^**.~.**^.SARAH.~.PALIN.^**.~.**^.********** A 2002 Washington Post Article said 820 Moose (or is it Meese? We're really not sure) were killed by cars each year in the State. In the 2008 Presidential election, Sarah Palin took heat for saying Moose stew and Moose burgers were some of her favorite foods, but in Alaska, Moose is what's for dinner? While most States' road kill consists of smaller animals, in Alaska, people run into Moose, Caribou and Bears. You might think that makes for a big problem, but really it's not a problem at all. Local law says that road kill is the property of the State and when you hit an animal, you have to call a State Trooper, who will come, clean up the meat and send it off to charities who will distribute it to the poor ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles &heats; Misha ~Little Bear~

Harley, Well furfriends, it's official, Sheba and I are now a couple. We started dating and it's great! I'm in love! Thanks Misha~Little Bear for vote #14600! Hi Keshia, Turned out nice and sunny yesterday by later in the afternoon. Nice and sunny and getting warm again today too! We've got to move hay to the barn in a little while. Mom's hoping to either finish mowing with the lawn tractor and clean it up for winter storage, or go and week whack. She just don't know if she can hold that weed eater up for an hour. So that could be the challenge! This afternoon, if it's not to wet and slippery from the rain yesterday, I'll help mom turn the horses out, it not, she'll let them out in the indoor arena so they don't get hurt. Labby Hugs & Licks, Harley.

Gracie Nichole---Vote for Misha---October DOTM!! Hi...Gracie here.-----I thought I'd better do my blogging a little earlier tonight. See, Mom didn't have such a good night last night. Mom thinks she's figured out what is making her itchy. She thinks she may be gluten sensitive. She has some of the symptoms. Mom's going to go gluten free for a month or two and see what happens.------Mom was so itchy last night that after two hours of itching and not being able to sleep, she took benadryl. Finally she got a little sleep but then woke up twice with nightmares. She dreamed that Cassie, Lola and I ran across the highway into the woods. We were chasing a white cat. Mom tried to scream for us but nothing would come out.....Next she dreamed that these huge dogs were coming in our house and she was trying to protect us. Lola ran out into the pasture. Needless to say, Mom woke up in a bad mood. Plus, the benadryl made her so groggy. Mom was extra protective of us today. She hates dreams like that.------Since she didn't get much sleep last night, mom's going to try to turn in early tonight. Sweet dreams.....Leaving a vote and lots of little yorkie love, Gracie Nichole

Had almost 2.5 inches over night and it's just clearing off now. Still warm, in the mid 60's for today, but then the cooler weather returns. This morning mom had to drive her friend Kevin for his Physical Therapy for his broken wrist. So I got to relax and catch on up keeping mom's bed warm for her! BOL! Since it's clearing off, Mom will get each of the horses to the indoor one at a time to lunge and work out in hand. I'll of course still remain inside, very wet and soggie out there! Mom's glad that she got the lawn mowed yesterday, cause by sunday, the high will only be 48 degrees, here we go again! BOL! After that it could be a couch day with mom. Too wet to do anything out there! Labby Hugs & Licks, Harley.

Harley, Well furfriends, it's official, Sheba and I are now a couple. We started dating and it's great! I'm in love! Thanks Misha~Little Bear for vote #14600! Hi Keshia, Well if this weather isn't just like Dr. Jeckel and Mr. Hide, we don't know what is! 68 degrees this morning at 6am! And now it's raining and almost 80 degrees out there! It's looking like I'm gonna have to hide mom's bottle of Advil! She's doing to much! We get a couple of warm days and she's like got spring fever! Yesterday she did take down the horses fans and brought them all up to the driveway to blow out the dust with the compressor. We turn the horses out, she gets the hair brain idea to shop vacummn down the horses stalls, like the cob webs! Now today, she's all ready gone for a hair cut and did some shopping. Came home and since it wasn't raining yet and very warm and kinda sunny, she gets on the lawn tractor and mows the lawn and out by the manura pile, then goes to the other side of the indoor arena and starts on that, but gets the mower deck hung up on a high spot! Good thing as she was walking up to the house, Rich was walking his GSD and she enlisted his help to lift and move the front end off the hump of dirt! Mom tried, but it was too much for her ribs, thank goodness she didn't push that darn thing! Finished just as the rains came, and now they are here, and all day tomorrow too! So just maybe then mom will take it easy now that it's raining and will be tomorrow too! I need my couch time with mom! BOL! Labby Hugs & Licks, Harley.

God made Man and Bird and Beast. But, God didn't make the Dog. He already had one. • **************HISTORY OF THE SHIH TZU************* The Shih Tzu's origins are ancient, and steeped in mystery and controversy. A recent study revealed that the Shih Tzu is one of the 14 oldest dog breeds, and dog bones found in China have proven that dogs were present there as early as 8,000 B.C.****** Some believe the breed was developed by Tibetan Monks and given as gifts to Chinese royalty. It is also speculated that the Shih Tzu was developed in China by crossing other breeds with the Lhasa Apso or Pekingnese. Regardless of where the breed was developed — Tibet or China — it's clear that the Shih Tzu was a Treasured Companion from the earliest times. Paintings, art, and writings from the China's Tang Dynasty (618-907 A.D.) portray small dogs similar to the Shih Tzu. References to the dogs appear again from 990 to 994 A.D. in documents, a few paintings, and carvings.****** In the 13th century, Marco Polo reported that the Mongolian Emperor Kubla Khan kept small "Lion" dogs with trained hunting lions — not as prey, but to keep the lions calm. Some believe these dogs were the Shih Tzu. ****** During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Chinese royal families kept Shih Tzu-type dogs, and the "Little Lion Dogs" or "chrysanthemum-faced" dogs were mentioned in several documents from that period. They were reportedly small, intelligent, docile dogs that strongly resembled Lions. ****** There isn't much mention of the dogs in documents from the 1700s to the early 1900s, but many pieces of art from that period depict small, shaggy, happy dogs. ****** In 1861, the Shih Tzu became popular in the Imperial Court after a royal concubine became the Empress of China. One of Empress T'zu Hsi's first royal edicts was that anyone caught torturing palace dogs would be put to death. Empress T'zu Hsi had a great love for animals and carried out extensive breeding programs under the direct care of palace eunuchs. ****** During Empress T'zu Hsi's reign, the Dalai Lama gave her a pair of magnificent Shih Tzus, reportedly the source of the imperial palace's little Lion dogs. It's said that the Shih Tzus had their own palace and were trained to sit up and wave their front paws when the Empress visited.****** After her death in 1908, many royal families competed to produce dogs of the finest coats and colors. Because of the competition, breeding practices were kept secret. Poor-quality dogs were sold in the marketplace, and good-quality dogs were often smuggled out of the palaces and given as gifts to foreign visitors or Chinese Noblemen.****** In 1928, the first Shih Tzus, a male and female pair, were brought to England from Peking by Lady Brownrigg, the wife of the quartermaster general of the north China command. In 1933, a Mrs. Hutchins brought a Shih Tzu from China to Ireland; this dog was eventually bred to Lady Brownrigg's. These three dogs formed the foundation of Lady Brownrigg's kennel.****** Maureen Murdock and Philip Price, her nephew, were the first to import and breed Shih Tzus in the United States. There were three Shih Tzu clubs by 1960: the American Shih Tzu Association in Florida, the Texas Shih Tzu Society, and the Shih Tzu Club of America. In 1963, the Shih Tzu Club of America and the Texas Shih Tzu Society merged to form the American Shih Tzu Club. In 1969, the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club as a member of the Toy Group. •*******TRIVIA *** SHIH TZU FACTS********* •There is no such breed as an "Imperial" or "Teacup" Shih Tzu. These are simply marketing terms used by unscrupulous breeders use to indicate a very small or large Shih Tzu.****** •Shih Tzus are difficult to housebreak. Be consistent, and do not allow a puppy to roam the house unsupervised until completely trained. Crate training is helpful. ****** •The flat shape of the Shih Tzu's face makes them susceptible to heat stroke, because the air going into the lungs isn't cooled as efficiently as it is among longer-nosed breeds. He should be kept indoors in air-conditioning rooms during hot weather. ****** •Be prepared to brush and comb the Shih Tzu coat every day. It mats easily. ****** •While Shih Tzus are trustworthy with children, they're not the best choice for families with toddlers or very young children because their small size puts them at risk for unintentional injury. ****** •The Shih Tzu tends to wheeze and snore, and can be prone to dental problems. ****** •While all dogs eat their own or other animals' feces (coprophagia), the Shih Tzu seems especially prone to this behavior. The best way to handle the problem is never let it become a habit. Watch your Shih Tzu closely and clean up poop right away. ****** •To get a healthy pet, never buy a puppy from a backyard breeder, puppy mill, or pet store. Find a reputable breeder who tests her breeding dogs for genetic health conditions and good temperaments. ***** ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~

But…the pages still load slow, freeze up at times, and sometimes we have to log in again, so I am not sure how far we will get on blogging. If we don’t catch you today, we will when we can. Mom has lost her patience with DC and if it gives her trouble, she won’t fight it too long. Yesterday Mom had to get the garbage can from down by the road, so I got a ride after that! YAY! Last night we got some strong storms that rolled through Alabama. But we didn’t get the bad stuff. After dinner, we got some rain while we were trying to do our 3 laps! Then it rained off and on through the night. Later it rained harder and there was some thunder in the distance, but no lightning here. Late at night, I had to go out to go potty as I didn’t get to earlier. I came in soaking wet! Mom had to dry me off with my towel and use the blow dryer a little before we went in the house. When you got to go…you got to go! BOL! Today it was 70ºF and partly sunny with 66% humidity and a strong breeze when we did 3 laps around the property. Yep…we did 3 again!! It was pretty wet and squishy out there, but we did our laps anyway. We will do 3 more after dinner, too. Mom is a bit tired from last night, listening for a bad storm to come and couldn’t sleep very good. But she might still cut the hole in the floor for the new dryer vent. After that, she really should take a nap! Mom talked to Bill last night. He slept pretty good again the night before. The nurse made her weekly visit and that went well. She told him to walk even more! He told her that it was too hot out. But it will be cooler this week, so he can walk more. He is making baby steps of progress, but it is progress! He thanks all of you for your continued support and prayers! Hope you have a great Monday! Don’t forget to vote for Misha #228920 for October DOTM! BBS. Left you a vote and lots of sweet Golden Kisses…

Harley, Well furfriends, it's official, Sheba and I are now a couple. We started dating and it's great! I'm in love! Thanks Misha~Little Bear for vote #14600! Hi Keshia, Well it was just so nasty yesterday afternoon, mom fired up the wood burner to take the chill out of the house. It never got past 55 out with rain drops! But it warmed up over night, 60, yes that warm this morning and going up to 70 with hopefully some sun! So we'll do more hay to the barn, and mom wants to take down all the fans in the barn, bring them up to the driveway and hook up the compressor and blow them off and wipe them down and put them away for the winter. Now mom said with that barn dust blowing around, I won't be allowed to watch, she don't want my eye getting hurt again with foreign dust in the air! What a great mom, thinking about my safety! Then she hopes to mow the lawn for the last time this season and clean the mower deck and wash it and put it away for the winter! Plus you know, I'll be helping with turnout of the horses of course! BOL! Labby Hugs & Licks, Harley.

Pumpkins are actually pretty amazing when you learn about them~~~~~~ ** The word “pumpkin” come from the Greek “pepon” meaning large melon~~~~~~ ** I know, you’re thinking “Melon? Wha…?” but it’s true! Pumpkins are related to melons. They both belong to the Cucurbitacae family, as do both cantaloupe and cucumbers. Sounds weird, but when you think about it, canteloupes and pumpkins are pretty similar~~~~~~ ** It’s a fruit. I know, that’s also crazy, but it’s also true~~~~~~ ** Pumpkins first originated in Central America~~~~~~ ** Farmers grow 1.5 billion pounds of pumpkins each year. Yes, billion~~~~~~ ** There are over 30 kinds of pumpkins~~~~~~ ** For each cup of pure pumpkin, there are 30 calories and 197% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A~~~~~~ ** Pumpkins are 90% water, which may help explain that low calorie count~~~~~~ ** Pumpkins have approximately 500 seeds each. Those seeds are a good source of protein~~~~~~ ** Pumpkin flowers are edible. If you’d ever eaten them~~~~~~ ** The largest pumpkin ever grown weighed more than 1 ton, 2,009 pounds to be precise, and was grown in Rhode Island in 2012. That’s a lot of pumpkin~~~~~~ ** It’s pretty seasonal, with 80 percent of the pumpkin supply available in the Month of October~~~~~~ ** A large portion of the crop comes from the Midwest~~~~~~ ** Illinois produces most of the processed pumpkins in the United States. Ohio and Pennsylvania also produce a lot of pumpkins, as does California~~~~~~ ** Morton, Illinois, home to the Libby pumpkin plant, proclaimed itself the pumpkin capital. The town’s website explains that the designation comes from being the home to Nestle Food Company’s pumpkin processing plant where over 85 percent of the world’s pumpkin is canned each Fall~~ ♥ Shih Tzu Snuggles ♥ Misha ~Little Bear~

Gracie Nichole---Vote for Misha---October DOTM!!

Gracie Nichole---Vote for Misha---October DOTM!! Hi....Gracie here. ---- It's a great day here. I can't believe what the Dr. put us through this weekend. Good news, bad news, back and forth. The Dr. this morning asked " What idiot Dr. said you needed a bone marrow test and that you only had weeks to live??" ---- We're just so glad he's going to be o.k. Turns out, he's severely anemic and may have to take a pill everyday. The new Dr. will have him come back next week to check the blood again. Said he may or may not have to take the medication.-----Well, mom now knows what the noise was from Saturday while she was driving.....a piece of metal punctured a hole in her tire and lodged under the Blazer. Mom saw it this morning when she went to take the tire off to be repaired. Now, it fixed.-----Kids have had a blast playing all day. We sure hope we don't get those severe storms here.....They make us all so nervous.------Hope you had a super, terrific, absolutely wonderful day. Leaving a vote and lots of little yorkie love, Gracie Nichole

Gracie Nichole---Vote for Misha---October DOTM!! Hi....Gracie here. ----Well, Mom's glad this weekend is over. It was not like we planned at all. Too much sadness and confusion. ----Mom stepped on Landon's cars last night and flew across the floor. She fell onto the sofa. He sure got in trouble for not cleaning up his toys. Then, this morning, she had a flat tire on the Blazer.---Lots of confusion about her uncles condition. First the Dr. says one thing, then another. Now, he's supposed to go have a bone marrow biopsy in the morning.-----No school for the kids tomorrow. Samantha and Remington will be taking a trip to the Rock Ranch with their Mom. Our Mom didn't want to go. Morgan and Landon are here and mom said they all might go shopping in Fayetteville. Guess it all depends on what type of mood mom wakes up to. ------Hope you have a wonderful week. Leaving a vote and lots of little yorkie love, Gracie

Harley, Well furfriends, it's official, Sheba and I are now a couple. We started dating and it's great! I'm in love! Thanks Misha~Little Bear for vote #14600! Hi Keshia, So we woke up to 36 and no frost thank goodness, but BURR! I wore my stable coat to the barn this morning! And mom had on her head band, so that means it's offically cold here! BOL! It's nice and sunny and hopefully up to about 60. Mom want to finish that row of stacking of wood and organize the pile for covering then. Plus she has to lunge Paige and Indy, and then we'll take a trip to Tractor Supply for some farm stuff. Now you know that means I go in and get a free cookie or two from the checkout girl! BOL! Then it's home and on the couch for Football! Yippy, pretzel time for me! Now mom's down to just 2 advil per day, one morning and one night time. She's feeling pretty good she said. Still a little sore, but now that bad. Okay mom! Labby Hugs & Licks, Harley.
