My Ouchie Snoot

Hi everybody - it's me, Mitch! I guess by now everybody knows that I ran into a tree on the ski slopes at Mount Hairy Lodge this past weekend and suffered an ouchie snoot!

This is how Lacie put it:

Mitch: Injured Dale Snoot. He seems to have hit a tree sideways and smacked his nose on it. Ouchie.....! Treatment is a large ice bag applied to the affected area for 20 minutes 4 times a day. Never apply ice directly to the skin.

Seems just about the time my nose finally warms up, mom comes around again with the ice pack! She says she doesn't want me to have any lasting damage from that nasty old tree!

No mom, not my head - my NOSE!!!! I still have all of my marbles! Thank goodness my noggin is okay!

Today is a pretty quiet day around here! We had a blast at Koobie's pawty and Maggie and I are both still so worn out from all of the fun activities for 3 whole days! I think we have some catching up to do on our sleep!

Guess what? Our day suddenly got better! Mom and dad are watching the NASCAR Daytona 500 and we have discovered that there is an M&M car and it's driven by Kyle Busch so we are happy to announce that #18 is our car for this year! Last time we peeked at the TV, car #18 was in first place! whooooooooooohoooooooooooo

Update: #18 didn't win the race but he was in first place for a whole bunch of laps! Kyle finished the race in fourth place! Way to go, Kyle! We'll be watching you, buddy! You're driving our car, ya know!

And we just had another surprise! Baby is home!! We are doing happy dances here! If you haven't stopped by to tell Baby yet how much you've missed her, pop on over!

So until next time...............

Yer friend,



  1. Hey Mitch, you look kind of dorky with that ice pack stuck to your face (if your friends won't tell, you, who will).

    Sleeping Airedales? You really must have had a big weekend.

    Your car should have won. Maybe you guys need NASCAR jerseys to wear (it working for the Stupid Bowl).


  2. That car is soooo cool!

    Sorry to hear you have an ouchie - hope you sleep it off!

  3. Poor Mitchy. Hope that your nosey will be better soon.


  4. Good evening M & M.
    Congratulations of it is a lot of award.
    Wonderful blog exceeds award.

    And, how about the effect of the face cooled with the ice of maggie?
    NASCAR Daytona 500 is Toyota camry.
    ...assistance to m&m it...
    Let's Go.

  5. I am so sorry to hear about the tree colliding with you Mitch!

    What a palaver as we say here, with the ice pack and all.

    Hope it gets better real soon,

    At least you have plenty ice to make Pawtinis! love and laughing but sensitive healing licks as well, Marvin xxxxxx

  6. My little 2-legged sisters were eating something called M & Ms yesterday and they sure smelled good. But they wouldn't share :( I didn't know there was an M & M car!!!

    Peace + Paws,


  7. mitch, even tho not your head that was hurt but you look REALLY HANDSOME with the ice pack on your head. lol


    wet wet licks


  8. Oh Mitch, I hope your snoot will heal soon. Isn't that ice pack freezing up your brain? Then you'll have brain freeze, heehee!

    Love licks,
    Solid Gold Dancer

  9. Hi M&M, that's so exciting about your race car. it's beautiful too, just like you are but in a different way.

    we're so excited that Baby is home. we have to go over there now and welcome her back!


  10. Why do they put trees in the middle of the skiing area ?????
    The car is just great ! Go M&M go !
    Kisses, Faya

  11. Hey Mitch, I hope your snout feels better real soon, and I also hope the big ice pack doesn't block your view of the race!

    Your friend, Lenny

  12. Hey guys, My mom is the ice pack queen over here. She's had one on her knee for days. Maybe you should come hang at our house, Mitch.


  13. woofies M n hopies u gets to feeling better just finks u wanted all da nursies to come take care of u...its not fair dey puted dat tree in ur way...mama likies kyle busch too...and yummmmys m n m's.....

    b safe,

  14. You two must be as tired as we are! We sure had a fun time, though. We hope your snooter heals really fast. Our mom is addicted to Nascar, but her driver finished 9th. Since Dale Earnhardt won it 10 years ago, she thought it would be nice if his son won this year, but it didn't happen. She even wore her redneck Earnhardt jacket to work today in honor of the 7th anniversary of his death. What a dork!

  15. Hey sorry bout the ouchies big lil guy! Next best thing to a dogtor is a wiry nursey!

  16. Great news about Baby. And how wonderful you and Maggie have your own race car. Even though you didn't win this time, we're expecting great things in the future.
    Abby & Rosie

  17. Sorry for your mishap, but accidents happen when you live dangerously! At least you had a great time and some good TV to watch while you're recooperating.

  18. You're not going to believe this, but we are rooting for the same car!! Mom is a big fan of the M&M car, too! She was mad when Sadler didn't drive it anymore and that other guy kept wrecking it. She was going crazy yesterday. That is going to be my post today, too!!
    Go Kyle and M&M's!!!!

  19. We are so sorry about your nose. You better keep doing what mom says so it gets all better in no time..

  22. Oh Mitch... I h ave to say you look cute with the ice bag on your head!!!

  23. Ouch Mitchy! Those trees have been known to just jump right out in front of us pooches!! I hope that ice pack made it all better!

    Oh and the race too! I just love to watch the cars go around the track!

    Luvs ya!

  24. If you were a smush face like me, you wouldn't have that problem!

  26. Hi, Mitch!
    I am sure that with your mom's care you will be much better now!
    Good luck with your racer!
    I am so happy for Baby too!
    Kisses and hugs

  27. Ouchy!It looks and must have hurt a lot. Poor Mitch....

  28. Ooh, it must be a bummer to have a sore nose like that. Too bad they don't make mini ice packs you could stick to the end of your nose. That big one is kind of inconvenient!!

  29. Mitch, how do you rest a snooter, exactly? just make sure you dont sniff too much I guess!!! that M&M car is cute, but not as cute as you guys!

  30. Oouch! It must really hurt. Hope you feel better soon, Mitch.

  45. Sorry to hear about your ouchie Mitch. Keep the ice pack on if you don't want to look like Rudolph.

  46. Oh followed my discharge instructions pawfectly! Your snoot looks much less swollen and black and blue from last weekend. The ice is really helpin'! Archie's flask (produced during the impromtu injured poker pawty) seems to have helped quite a bit too...Never turn ur large Dale head on a tree, Mitch....

    Lakie barks...

  47. Hey, Maggsie!

    It was so good to see you at Koobie's pawty. You and Harry were sure tearing up those slopes! It looks like you two were enjoying more than the snow. hehehe

    Give MitchMan a big goober smooch from me on his nose! Man, that must have HURT!

    Goober love & smooches,

  48. Oh no! I hope your nose is better now.

    I have been rather after i came home and have been sleeping on the BIG bed most of the time. This ordeal makes me realise that i am so lucky to have many friends that cares for me and pray for my return. They gave my mama the strength and support to look for me day after day. Thank you Maggie & Mitch for being my friend.
