Happy gotcha Day, Jack! (a little late)

It's been so hectic, humom forgot to post a Happy Gotcha Day for Jack! 8/8/08 marked 1 year since the day we met Jack, and brought him back to RI.
First night in the motel:

Training him has been exhausting work, with no holidays or breaks for me, and the puppyhead is finally a half-way decent pack member. But, he still has his faults.

Like, he's becoming a real attention hog. I have to step in & push him aside sometimes just so people can also admire ME. And he's a total failure at siberian photo techniques. He looks at the camera every time, and even looks cute on purpose. He obeys way too quickly, and needs to work on being a little more appropriately sneaky. Let's face it, he's a work in progress.

So much to teach, so little time.... After a year on probation, I've made up my mind: OK Jack, you can stay.

Happy Gotcha Day, Jack. I won't say "belated", cause duh, we're dogs, we can't tell time. Who cares if its August 8th or 18th?

Wooos & a-rooos,
Queen Star and Jack "she like me! she likes me!"" a-roo


Where's da Mama?

Where's Hu-Mom?
She's not in the kitchen...
she's not doing laundry...
she's not in the garage...
she's not outside...
she's not upstairs...
shes not even at the puter...

Where's da Mama this week?

Is she buying Ice?

Is she hanging sheets?

Is she supervising knot-tying?

Oh my dog, she's at the helm!

Uh-oh, she's at sailing classes. She better not even think about getting me on one of those things.

Pee-Ess. Oh Summer, on behalf of our humom, we apologize for the mistake! It's just that we know an Autumn & Prince from the dog park. Humom must have been on "auto-pilot" when she typed it. Bad humom, no treat.



Woos & a-rooos,
08/08/08 is great! We're just haning around. Pengie got a bath & fluff dry last week. Mom says I shouldn't keep leaving him outside cause he gets muddy, but we're getting pretty bored inside.

Then mom said she'd play catch with Pengie & me!

We had fun playing a while, then mom got the camera out, and we played till it thundered. I know penguin is not supposed to be outside in storms, so back in we went!

I went back out to see Star. Hi Star, wanna play? Can I play with your new Cuz if your not gonna play with it?

Whoa, you don't have to get all snarly!

Ha-roo-roo, she's not really snarling, just yawning.
Bet she scared you, huh?
Have a nice nap Star.

Time for me to take a nap with Pengie, he's tired!

Mom says thanks for all your prayers & sibe vibes for her SIL. The bipeds appreciate it.
Have a nice weekend everyone!

Woos & a-rooos,
Star & Jack a-roo


catching up

Wooos & a-rooos dear friends,
The humans have been too busy having fun to blog for us. One of the SIL's flew in & they've been going to mansions, restaurants, sailing, and shopping and leaving us home! Well, at least we got a CUZ for our very own! And a few leftovers that were mighty tasty. Here's a couple picturesfrom the Green Animals Topiary Garden. See the unicorn & bears? there's a lot of other animals there, too. Maybe Jack & I will start making topirary garden holes.

Imagine our surprise when we finally got mom to read us a few blogs and realized our friend Kelsey Ann from the Kapp Pack had gone to the Rainbow Bridge.

We were stunned, and then deeply saddened, and will keep KA forever in our husky hearts. Run free, beautiful girl, you will be missed.

And sadly, our humom's brother's wife is gravely ill, so our humans have been going to see her in the hospital. We're keeping paws crossed & sending sibe vibes and prayers to her and her family. She is too nice to have to leave this world. Maybe a mean rotten person can go instead. If we made the choice, that's what we'd do, we'd send a mean rotten person away instead. Nobody would miss a mean rotten person. The world needs really good-hearted people like her to stay here to make things better.

So we may be a bit sporatic with our blogging for a while. It's just the way it is. Keep things running smoothly for us in the meanwhile!

Wooos & a-rooos,
Star & Jack a-roo
