Here's some totally interesting stuff I'm sure you will want to know about my blog.  For starters, I have now published 1,022 posts.  Well, okay, Piper published most of those, but I am trying to follow in her paw prints!  The number of hits (or "page views," as blogspot calls them) for all time is 3,777,371.  This is a really huge number, and I don't think I could count that high, even if I used all my toes several times over.

The top five popular posts for all time are:

Now I will share some spam comments, because those are always fun to read.  Most of them get blocked, and don't show up on the website, but they come to our inbox.  Also, they go on our statistics page, which is where I found these.  After a while, they vanish totally and are lost somewhere in cyberspace.

For some reason, lots of the spam comments are put on the same posts.  Like, for several months, it was the post about Glen of Imaal Terriers.  Then it was the post on Chinese Crested Dogs.  Lately, it's been the post on Guide Dogs that got a lot of these comments.  I don't know why this happens, but it does.  Okay, so here are some of those comments.

What you posted was actually very reasonable. However, consider this, what if you typed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your content isn't solid., but suppose you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "BOERBOELS" is a little plain. You might look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write article titles to grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

It's been a long time since I told you what was going on in our exciting personal lives, so this seemed like a good time to do it.  I had first thought I would write about porcupines, but my Chief Research Assistant (a.k.a. Mom) didn't have time to do all the prickly research that would be needed for the topic.  And the reason she didn't have time was because she went to a doctor's appointment yesterday afternoon, and she thought it would take an hour, but instead it took 3 and a half hours!

Okay, so one of the latest news items is that Tristan has to wear the Cone of Shame now, so that he won't lick between his toes.  We don't know why he started licking between his toes, but when he licks there, they get all red and icky-looking.  So Mom took him to see Dr. Patricia, and she checked out the stuff between Tristan's toes.  She found out that it had bacteria in it, and maybe some yeast, too.  So now Tristan has to wear the cone, and Mom will be putting some ointment goop on his toes.

In other news, winter is coming, which means the weather is getting colder.  Some days it is really, really cold, and Mom puts our sweaters on us.  Also, we can keep warmer if we all huddle up together.

Another way to stay warm is to go under the covers on the bed.  Tristan and Marius and I always sleep under the covers with Mom at night, and that way we stay nice and toasty.  Latifa likes to sleep with Mom, too, so she snuggles up in Mom's right armpit, or else under the covers by Mom's tummy, if Mom is sleeping on her side.

Sometimes we sit by the heater because that is another warm place to be.

The cats hang out in cat beds.  They like to sleep high up in the cat tree or else in beds in the cat room, where we dogs can't bother them.

Yesterday it was actually pretty warm outside, so Mom planted some bulbs.  Mom has been meaning to do this for a couple of months, and now it's finally done.  She waited so long that the bulbs were already starting to sprout in the garage.

The reasons why Mom didn't plant the bulbs before this were (1) Sometimes the ground was frozen and hard to dig in, (2) Every time there was a nice day, Mom had to work, and (3) Mom kept forgetting that she needed to do it.  But finally, she was home on a nice day, so she planted 25 daffodils of all different types, 10 grape hyacinths, and 10 crocuses.  Now we just have to wait until spring gets here, so we can see them bloom.

Later on, Mom made a video of the ornamental grass in the back yard.  I guess the grass is sort of pretty, but the best part of the video is that Mom let me be in it!  I played a leading role, so I hope I will get star billing!
