Square Dog Friday. . . we be here !

First of all I want to Thank all of YOU wonderful Blog Friends, for the concern about
the Bighorn Fire where I live.

I am still in my home in the Foothills of the Catalinas at Ventana Canyon,
with the Gud Dugs and Katties.
We stored art, photos and important papers,  at Daughters home.

So far the fire burning near my home has moved more to the east. It burned for 5 days coming down back up and side to side at the Ventana Canyon ( look at last 2 posts.)The Hot Shot crews did a outstanding job with the fire lines and backburns.
Moving east towards Mt. Lemon 

Thursdays burn at Mt. Lemon. So much smoke 

Smoke over the Catalinas.

Pocket fires still burning, so much smoke.

Smoke over Ventana Canyon.

The Bighorn Fire has grown to 88,046 acres of Friday morning. 33 percent contained. This fire has been burning since  5 June. The foothills are still being patrolled with structural and ground resources available to respond if necessary. 

Scotty Security Patrol is still  available to help the Firefighters.

Winston is being scheduled for Surgery but still working at his Security Job. 

Agatha is on break . It was 106 on Thursday. Very hot, smoke and more smoke.
She needed a break.
Here is a funny for today.

Stay safe and be well !
cheers,  parsnip


  1. Best of luck to the fire fighters, and may rain come your way.

    1. I was searching for loan to sort out my bills& debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Credit Card that can be hacked to withdraw money from any ATM machines around you . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting {} they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with$50,000,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 24 hours later, i was shock to see the UPS agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. This hackers are USA based hackers set out to help people with financial freedom!! Contact these email if you wants to get rich with this Via: ..    

  2. I shall be thinking of Winston during that surgery - and know he will be a brave little soldier.

  3. I'm so glad you all are still there! God bless those Hot Shot crews.

  4. Dear Parsnip, your first photo is very beautiful, but also very troubling. The fire crews do fantastic work, I hope it can all get dealt with soon. There is a lot to be said for a good downpour. (This from the woman who moans endlessly about rain!)
    Wishing Winston a good outcome after his surgery and cooler times for you all.

  5. So glad Winston is on the lookout. Hope things continue to get better for your area and that the containment grows more quickly for everyone else, too.

  6. Thank goodness you are all okay and able to stay at home. Bless all of those dear fire fighters! iWinston is obviously doing a great job on patrol and I'm sure Agatha has been doing her part as well. With those high temperatures and all the smoke they need many breaks! Thank you for letting us know you are all okay - I think of you daily!xxx

  7. I hear things are getting rough again down there. I keep you and the four footed ones in my thoughts.

  8. Glad the fire seems to be moving away. I hope it will be under control and you won’t have to evacuate. Winston is such a gud dug doing security job. I wish the very best result after his surgery. xo

  9. I, too, hope Winston does well with his surgery. He is a very Gud dog!

  10. Wishing you and your animal friends the best of good fortune! So glad it seems you did not need to evacuate and now may you have some lovely gentle rain for a few days! Be well!

  11. Goodness me …
    I'm just catching up with what has been happening!!!

    I'm so pleased that you are not needing to evacuate.
    My heart goes out to you and all those affected by the fires.
    Well done the firefighters.

    Lovely photographs of Winston and Agatha.

    My good wishes.

    All the best Jan
