View from the Moo: Almost the end of summer....

... and that means Husky Weather will be back!  Woo-Hoo!

Finally, a new View from the Moo after many, many weeks without a post.   Pardon me, but I still haven't mastered typing without thumbs....

In the meanwhile, the Pawrents have been busy as bees around here.  

Dad installed more new windows and re-sided the back of the house...

Mom trimmed hedges for hours....

and we snoopervised their work from the back deck.  

Jack found a shady corner...

I rested in my usual manner.

What?  Woo don't think this looks comfy?
Well, it IS!
 I reccommend trying it sometime.  just prop your head on something that won't move,  nestle your cheek just right, and tuck your ear back.  Its refreshing!

And that's the View from the Moo--

The rains of Arthur have ceased (we got 3.25 inches on the 4th), and last night's neighborhood fireworks are over.  Its a beawootiful, cool day and the whole pack is gonna all hang out together today - woo-hoo!

Dad-a-roo Day View from the Moo

Hope every Dad-a-roo had a great Dad Day!    
(We were busy all day so we didn't post)

Mom got a couple shots of us late in the day after all the activities were done 
(we went out walking & delivering stuff to friends while Dad put the finishing 
touches on the new crown molding he put up in the living room)

I was grumpy (cause Mom wouldn't stop brushing me and I had to go hide in the hallway)

Jack was being adorable...

and Dad was goofy.
It happens sometimes.

And that was the View from the Moo on Dad-a-Roo Day!

PS:  I almost furgot!  Mom spottted a crane flying overhead when we were walking and it landed on the roof of a house on the next block - the pics are a little fuzzy, but we could see him on the roof through the trees!  Pretty cool, huh?


View from the Moo- Sunday Snoopervising

Ha-woo everyone!    
Unlike the past 48 hours of doom & gloom, the weekend had fabulous weather!  Mom took us fur a photoshoot at 7 am cause she said it was really good "morning light".  Whatever!  I slept during most of the drive.   

She stopped on the other side of the island at a cove she is planning to use for a painting.    I snoopervised out the window as she ran up & down the road snapping pictures.

Jack snoopervised out the other side window, keeping an eye out for traffic so she didn't get run over.   Those humans, ya just gotta watch out for them!

Then she took us fur a walk on the rocky beaches at Brenton's Point.  It was low tide, so there was plenty of good-sniffin stuff around!    We heard a lot of squawking and headed to the lower beach....

The gulls were enjoying a quiet Sunday morning without the usual crowds of tourists...

Along with them was a duck, a cormorant sunning its wings,
 and this beawootiful white heron.
All in all, it was a furry "Serene Sunday",  to borrow a phrase from our furiends over at the Ao4!

When we got home, we all took a nice long nap!
And that's the View from the Moo-

Monday's View from the Moo: looking back...

We had this great post planned fur the Monday after Mother's Day, 
but Mom says she's been "really busy" and hasn't had time to post.
We're not buying it, but, what do we know?  
We're just "dogs".....*snicker snicker*

 Mother's Day, Dad taking pics of Mom
(notice how I got his attention away from Mom?)

We all went for a wonderful walk at Brenton's Point.  
We haven't been there fur ages!

Jack, looking handsome.

Jack & me,  lookin' goooood!

A "dad & me" moment:

Me, busy tracking sea-smells

Mom Day photo op:  at the Memorial bench that says "Jack" on it

And "smile fur the camera", one more time....

OK, Jack.  
I think we fulfilled out photo contract,  lets get back to business!
So much to sniff!!

And that is this week (or two's) 
View from the Moo!

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.
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!
