Farrr North Idaho Reporting

This Moose was visiting us in March.

 Both of us wanted to go outside to visit with her, but the peeps wouldn't allow it.
 SOooo, since we weren't allowed to "visit" with her, our place is still called:
News Flash:   Well, we thought Mrs. Moose was getting old really fast, but found out the white on her back is from something else.  Something really creepy.  Yup.  There was an article in the local paper about this and the accompanying photo looked a LOT like our moose.   Apparently there are some parasites called moose ticks and they can even KILL a moose.  We think that is probably why Mrs. Moose didn't have any calves with her this Spring.  The young calves can have over 50% of their blood drained by those vampire ticks and it's just too much for their young bodies. How sad.  The Billings, Montana Gazette had this story just yesterday & it tells more about the horrible moose tick, just click. Enough about that. Yuk.

Hootie and I, Baby Rocket Dog, have been enjoying our Winter and now Spring here in Farrr North Idaho.  Mommy and Daddy are really busy unpacking boxes and trying to de-clutter the cabin.  Good luck there folks...what a mess.  Can you spell hoarders?!   Bol.  Mom says it might take a good 6 months before things look "normal". 

Sorry we haven't been posting lately.  Google kind of had us confused.  We'll try to get our secretary to be better at keeping us up to date here.  So, time for us to sign off for now.  Hope you are all well and that 2014 is treating you peachy!

Smooches from pooches,
Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie

Hi doggies! Welcome back north!
Sorry your Moose doesn't have much to smile about. Too bad you can't put extra strength Frontline on her.

We look forward to hearing about your adventures again. Happy unpacking.

Wyatt and Stanzie

Our peeps won't let us play with mooses, either. Too bad about the parasites on your mooses; the ones we've seen here seem to be healthy (covered in burrs, but no parasites as far as we can tell), but that's scary! Welcome back north!

How sad about the moose babies. We wish we could share our human's opposable thumbs to pick them off. But moose would not make good pets.

What a shame about the mooses. Ticks are such a pain!
It was great hearing from you, BRD and Hootie!

Love ya lots♥

So good to hear from you two - glad all is well. Poor moose - those ticks are not very nice at all.

That Moose tick thing sounds like a nightmare. The poor Moose. Sorry you didn't get out to say hi (not sure moose like terriers very much, though).

Howdy Mates, nice to hear from ya. Poor Moose and the ticks. They sound nasty. Maybe you can say howdy next time. Good luck with the de-cluttering. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

My mom loves moose of any kind (well, not the ones with the yucky tick thing)

Maybe you can bark "hi" at the moose next time :)
