Ponderings of the Opester

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!I have been recalcitrant on my postings because I have no photos to post.  Armed with this realization, I have decided to post anyway.  I have been doing much thinking lately and I wonder…why am I here?  Why now?  Why not ten or a hundred years […]

My Pappy is 90!

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!I haven’t posted for awhile because my mom is visiting her dad, my pappy, for his birthday.  He lives in Pennsylvania.  I have never been outside of Alaska.  My mom always tells me that I wouldn’t like the long plane ride.  Anyway, it has been awhile […]

Christmas & Stuff

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

I’m late on posting my Christmas pictures, but here they are anyway! After breakfast, we went for a walk on the river.  It was pretty cold, but it was really nice to get out in the sun.  I was running around and picked up a stick and mom chased me.  Then I saw this stick […]

Frito Feet and DaGrinchy Toes

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

Thanks to everyone who smelled their dog’s feet.  Now, try licking them…they actually taste like corn chips……Bwaahahahahahahah…no..don’t do it, I’m just kidding.  Seriously, though, I always wondered if I was the only one and now I know I am not!  Just like there are lots of tripawds out there, there are lots of Frito Feet […]

Not counting days anymore

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Hey everybody!  I have decided not to count days anymore because who cares?  All that matters is that we have fun while we are here. I don’t have a lot of time to post today, but I have a burning question…Do your feet smell like corn chips?  I am totally serious.  All you pawrents:  sniff […]

Day 48

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

I cannot believe how time flies!  I have so much to say. First.  Yes Comet Dog, I am orange! I love orange.  My mom’s hair is the same color as mine.  When people say to her, “Wow.  Your hair is the same color as your dog.”  She says, “Yes.  I take him to the hairdresser […]

Day 40

Monday, December 14th, 2009

Crikey!  Where to start?  It snowed today!  Hooray! The weather is kind of mild for December, but we are two feet behind our average snowfall and that does not make me happy.  The snow today was just a little dusting, but at least it whitened things up again. Mostly this weekend I played on the […]

Day 35

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

The days are flying b y so fast.  Thanks, Peyton for giving me a nudge.  Sometimes I get on the site and spend so much time reading everyone else’s post and commenting on them, that I am all talked out and don’t update my post.  Anyway, I am doing really good.   My CBC was good […]

Wow.  The days keep sneaking by me and I don’t write on my blog.  Well.  I just have to say one thing….BWAaaahahahahahahahahah!  All my tripawd friends make me wag my tail!  I love to read everyone’s post and I am really pleased to know that so many of you share my concern about dog-eating-machines.  Peyton:  […]

Day 22

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Wow.  I took a long break from posting.  This past week has been crazy.  I didn’t get sick from my chemo yet, which is really good.  I get up and move around a little better now.  I moved really fast the other day because mom, after two weeks of dormancy, brought out the dog-eating-machine.  I […]
