Monday's View from the Moo: Jack's so clever!

Ha-roo everyone!  Hope your easter Day was relaxing and full of good stuff.  We got tasty tastes from the yummy dinner mom made fur our pack & our friends.  Mr. & Mrs.  Easter Bunny stayed out of our yard, though, which was probably wise on their part!

Well, Jack has been busy destroying cones.  He's getting really good at it!  
The original cone (pictured below)  fell victim to his repeated attempts at rampaging thru the pine trees and bushes....
Mom & dad came home from a trip to the store and found its remnants dangling from his collar.  Mom found more pieces out in the yard under the pines.

Next, Mom tried this dandy jet-fighter headgear designed specifically for eye protection.  
Jack threw himself on the ground and did somersaults till he could get a paw under the strap and yank it off.   Mom & dad tried again the next day, but by then, Jack had figured out how to swipe it right off his head.  Then mom tied it to his collar, and he got out of it and his collar!

Here he is in was Cone of Shame #2.  This one lasted about 24 hours before he cracked it in several places by ramming his way thru the dog door.
Before...
After....
Dad patched it up with packing tape.   The process had to be repeated about 6 hours later for Jack's newest set of cracks.  Mom says that at this rate, she will have to duck-tape the whole thing to make it last till his Thursday vet visit.  

Anyone care to bet on the odds that he'll be out of it long before Thursday?

I'll keep woo posted....
And that's this week's veiw from the Moo!

Toodle-woo!

Monday's View from the Moo: Jack-in-a-Cone

Ha-woo everyone!   It's me, Miss Moo,  with this week's veiw from the Moo.

Jack had surgery to remove a cyst from his lower eyelid that has been really pesky for the past year.  Now he has to wear a cone.... for the next 2 weeks!!!   He's trying hard to be P-A-T-I-E-N-T with the whole situation, but once in a while he goes bananas.


I'm trying hard to hod it together here..... but a dog only has so much patience.....


...and I think I'm getting to the end of mine!!!!

Whiel Jack was busy getting fixed, Mom & I went to the Windmill Pond and visited the windmill
(here I am not looking at mom in front of the windmill)


 and we visited the ducks.  I think the guy with the red head needs the 
same surgery as Jack - his whole face was covered in bumps!
 Then mom stopped at the petting zoo to see the new babies.
Awwwwww,.... they're so cute!
I had to stay in the car while mom took these shots.
cute babies!

Howdy!
Welcome to our yard


these babies are just like Siberians- black & white lambies!

 WE had a furry lovely day.   But I'm glad to have my brofur back.  Mom won't let me drag him around with the cone on his head, so I try to stay occupied with other things, like digging.
How can woo tell I've been digging, Mom?
Well, that's about it for this weeks View from the Moo.
Toodle-woo!

Monday's View from the Moo: Play time!

ha-woo everyone!

This past weekend was lovely outside.  After 3 days of rain, it was dry & warm enough to make you believe Spring is finally here!   Mom is home with us for another week while she gets her hurty-paw healed from surgery, so we all spent time outside together.   Even dad joined us & helped with poop-scoop duty (there's a first time fur everything, ha-woo woo woo!)

Mom took some pics of our blooms:
The daffys are starting to bloom (these are the minis)

 and our mini-iris are bloomiing, too.  Our Garden Lion loves his own personal iris!

 Jack was lovin' the sun, it made him all sleepy-eyed

Now we can't have him falling asleep on such a great day for zoomies 
& Sibe Smack-downa, now can we?

So I "fixed" the situation by inviting him to play.
I love to pull on his legs when he's being a slug!


See.... it worked!   Ha-woooo!
and that's the view from the Moo!
I hope all of woo have a great week.

Toodle-woo,
Miss Moo

Spring is in the air!

Ha-woos!   Its "officially" Spring!
Mom can tell because this year, one croscus escaped the ravenous rabbits that live in the flower gardens on the non-dog side of the yard.    I keep wooing to her that we could fix that, if she'd just let us have full access to the whole yard!

C'mon, Mom, let us have a crack at those wascully wabbits!

If I can't hunt wascully wabbits, I guess I can always hunt wascully brofurs! 
Ha-roo roo roo!

Happy Spring!
Jack a-roo & Miss Moo

Cybersibes' 1000th!

Ha-woo!  Its here!   
Our 1000th Cybersibes blog post!

The original Cybersibes were Star and Sherman, who lived in Ohio on 3 acres with a pond & some woods.  They had their own cabin, a kitty brofur, and life was good!  





I first got involved with a pet chat group called Pet Talk, and thus began my circle of on-line friends.  It turned out that many of them gathered at a dog park just a few miles from us for pic-nics a couple time a year.   It was a great experience to meet the peeps & pups face to face, and even went on our first Husky Hike with other Pet Talkers.  
Around 2006, I discovered Meeshka, Turbo, and Holly's House blogs.  I loved reading their posts, and decided that Star & Sherman needed to have their own voice, too.  Voila!  Cybersibes began!

We met lots of Siberian owners and our on-line pack grew.  But dad-a-roo got a new job, which meant moving hundreds of miles away to the East Coast.  After we moved, Mom went back to finish up the house, and we went to our last Pet Talk Picnic .

The next phase of our lives began with Smilin in Rhode Island, 
and our blogging took on a life of its own!

We discovered the coolest thing about living on an island.... beaches!!!!
Rocky ones, sandy ones, and wooden ones for walking on next to the ocean.

But a dark cloud hung over our happiness.... Sheman was diagnosed with lung cancer just a month after we arrived here.  Here is one of my favorite photos of our beloved Star & Sherman, taken on 6-21-08 while we walked the docks near Ft. Adams to watch the sunset. It was one of our last adventures together, as his health rapidly declined.
We tearfully said goodbye to our beautiful golden boy on July 7th.
It was a very difficult time, especially for Star.  Mom later posted a video that she feels expresses the love between Star & Sherman.   *Tissue warning*

The New Kid
It wasn't long before our pack grew again.  Mom took Star back to Ohio to the kennel where Sherman came from, Destiny Siberians.  Check this link to see what happened!

Welcome Jack!
Our first photoshoot in the yard-
do those ears say it all, or what?  LOL!

Jack quickly adapted to Island Life and our beach trips resumed.  If you search our blog for "Sachuest", it may turn up quite a few of our beach posts.

Wanna join us fur sunset on the beach?   Click here!
We love the rocky parts of the coast!

Our beach trips with Jack & Star included everything from finding a washed up giant turtle on the beach, to meeting horses, birds (lots of birds), pleanty of other dogs, and even sand sharks!
We'll run for help, just like Lassie, Dad! 
Watch out, kid!
Mom put together some of our best shots & set them to music for
a delightful Seaside RendevouzDo take a moment to enjoy it!

The Cybersibes also go on cyber-adventures.  One of our very best was Star & Jack's trip to the North Pole.  It really begins with A. Penguin's Story, followed by  North Pole #1 ...
 It covers about 10 posts total, with lots of exciting action shots like this one, as Jack & Moo  finally reachthe Santa and learn an important life lesson.

Star & Jack also blogged about real adventures, like their off-chance find in New Hampshire where we all learned a bit of Siberian History at the historic site of Chinook Kennels.

Our blog has celebrated our Siberians' favorite things, such as Jack's love for all thing Penguin, and Squirrelly , and JACK'S business ventures:  Order now!    Holey Moley Mole Removal business  Update, and his ultimate Christmas pick, snow in seconds.

The only constant is that everything changes...

Star was with us from the time she was 5 weeks old  till just a few months short of 13.  

But, during the summer of 2009, she began to lose mobility, lost a lot of weight, and grew weaker.  Testing didn't reveal any specific cause.  One of the harshest realities is that dogs have much shorter lives than we do.  Every dog owner must face that, but when "that day" arrives, one feels that surely it is too soon.  
We tearfully said good bye to our beautful Star on Sept. 24th.  
We still miss our blue-eyed girl.  She was our first dog, our first Sibe, and our forever love.   I put together some favorite photos & music as a Farewell tribute. *Tissue warning*   Most of the pictures I was thinking of posting are already on the video, which warms my heart now as I watch it again.   She was so special to us!

Soon after Star's departure, and for all too brief a time, Sherman's sisfur Tori joined our pack, she was such a lovely sweet girl!    

A month later, she suffered a medical crisis and soon joined her brofur across the Rainbow Bridge.   Losing two dogs in three months was a tough stretch for us.  Blogging was one way to express our grief, and we received so much support and comfort from the kind messages left here. 

Jack is not a dog who does well on his own.  He really needs the companionshoip of another sibe, so we began a search for our next pack member.   I found a kennel just an hour north of here who had a couple of dogs available.  After speaking to the owner, she suggested we bring Jack up to meet the little female.....she was exactly what we needed!

Hello!  My name is Moo!  
I'm really happy to meet woo!

So the adventures continue!
I'll let  Moo "take over" from here....

Mom hasn't had as much free time to blog, but we'lll keep on her about it.  Seems like a lot of our other blogging buddies now post most of their photos & news on facebook.  We do, too, and its nice to have a quick look, but we still like being able to tell a yarn or two and have photo-fun, so we won't abandon our blog.

Woo can look forward to
More hats

More trips

More yard zoomies & smack-downs




more ME!!!

and of course, more Jack, too!

Thanks fur walking down "Memory Lane" with us!
From all of the cybersibes family,
"Woos & A-roos to Yous!"

Toodle-woo,
Jack a-roo & Miss Moo
