Bewootiful!

Nothing much to report, but humom decided (as if she isn't far enough behind on everything as it is) to procrastinate a while longer, she's changing our blog around. She was inspired when she was playing in photoshop with one of our pics & voila, she thinks it looks like one of those professional studio shots! (Look up at the top of our blog. Woo can see the pic she worked from on our July 12th blog post.) Then she thought it would be nice to change all the colors around too. We like it, even thought we're color blind (or so they say)

We had a nice long walk today because it's been raining nonstop for three days and we are driving her crazy in the house. No thunderstorms, just rain rain and more rain. Not that we're complaining - when it rains, we get to spend LOTS more time inside, which has its perks. The rain stopped & the sun peeked out of the clouds for about 45 minutes, during which time the bipeds decided to go sailing. As soon as they set foot on the boat, it clouded over again for the next several hours. But apparently they had a good time anyway. Humom said the other bipeds challenged her to go faster, and she practically had the boat heeled over (leaning) clear till the water came up to the side-rails. Go mom!
Here's what it looks like looking out from the boat:


and here is a boat heeling, but not a whole lot:


Since neither Jack or I care much for water that isn't frozen, this whole sailing thing doesn't interest us at all. But I guess if your going to live on an island, its a good idea to know how to sail!

Woos & a-rooos,

Morning Zoomies

Every morning it's the same thing. Feed Jack, bribe me to eat breakfast, then let us out. Jack starts his morning zoomies around the yard and thru the house. He tries to get me to join in, but I'm not even awake yet. It seems to entertain humom to no end. Since it's pouring down buckets of rain today, she'll have to settle for video zoomies this morning.

Can I get a cup of coffee now, please?

Pirates & Beach Day!

Woos & a-roos!
It's been a gorgeous weekend. We laid out in the sun all day yesterday, soaking up rays while our pawrents went sailing. They floated right into a harbor festival that was having a Pirate contest!!! We thought it was cool since it was "Talk like a pirate day" last Friday. The bipeds ate tasty things up on the patio by the red umbrellas and watched a couple rowing contests, watched miniature sailboats, and listened to some pirates singing sea shanties.

Mom got a picture of these very same pirates last year at the Tall ships Festival - here, in the parade:

This time Mom got a pic of two pirates having lunch. (We disguised their true identity with extra "pirate" details).

There was a floating flower float contest, too - if we were there we would have voted for the rooster, cause it looks the tastiest, besides the real ducks floating around.



Today we got our turn to go have fun at the beach! We got to sniff a big sea turtle carcass that washed in from the ocean, and a bunch of dead fish & crabs... it was heavenly! We wooed to a northern cousin we saw enjoying the beach & waves while we were there, too.

It put us in such a good mood, we decided to go ahead & give em a couple good shots...


Hope you had as much fun as we did this weekend!

Wooos & a-rooos,
Cap'n Star o' the 7 Seas & Black Jack a-roo Kidd, haaarrr!

Wooos & a-rooos!

Woos & a-roos to all of yous,
Ha-woo! That last blog post was lots of fun. Here's a brief list of all the things that make us woo with happiness: walking on beaches, napping, peace & quiet, everyday life, cake, FUR friends, purrs, dogparks, walks, food, hugs, kissies, pictures of us, our blog, taking naps, eating cookies, oceans, and furever homes! Just reading this makes us feel all warm & fuzzy. Wait... we're always fuzzy. Well, woo know what we mean.

We are making a shameless commercial announcement: Our humom has opened an internet card shop called JackStar Cards. We're furry furry excited! Woo guys are the first to know!

We're her official card selectors, nothing gets by that doesn't meet our approval. That's because Mom is donating money to husky rescue for every card sold, whether or not they have a husky on the card. Which is nice, cause she also uses alligators and fluffy white puppies and kitties & stuff. She uses all her own photos & drawings, and can even do custom stuff.

She's made some really fun Halloween cards, and has lots of cool Christmas cards planned, too. So we may occasionally feature a few here blog-worthy ones here like these:




We know you recognize those good-looking huskies, and doesn't that last one remind you of a young Huffle?
So grab your humans plastic the next time they need to send a nifty card to someone special, and mush on over.

"We're Star & Jack, and we approve this message"
Woos & a-roos!

Back to "Normal"... What makes woo happy?

Well, my boy is gone, & it's after Labor Day so most of the tourists are gone, too. That means Jack & I get to go back to our beach! (Can woo believe it - dogs and horses are banned between Memorial Day & Labor Day! No fair.)
Beawootiful day today after Gustav's rains rained down all day & night yesterday. It was very windy & wet out, so we got to sleep in the bedroom with our bipeds. We like that.
Here's a couple pictures from our walk on the beach today. We had to watch where we put our delicate little feety-feets cause there were jellyfish washed up all along the shoreline.
The little birds were still there...

Walking on the sand makes us happy.
What makes woo happy?


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

Sad woos & Happy woos

First, the sad woos. Our humom's SIL has gone to the rainbow bridge for humans. She left Tuesday afternoon, while her husband (humom's brother) and their son were with her in the hospital. The white coats have been trying very hard to fix her for a very long time, and even put in some new parts, but humom says God must have needed another angel and brought her up to human heaven. She was a very kind & loving person, and our humans will miss her terribly.

Now, some happier woos.
our boy has been here for the past 4 days, & we love having him here!
Now, you may be asking yourself "why is Jack in a tree?"
Good question. No good answer, except that the humans thought he would look cute in a tree. No wonder we don't understand them.

This nice picture was taken by our boy when they took us for a car ride.

...and Jack once again ended up in a tree.


We have no explanation for this obsession for putting Jack in trees. Weird things like this make it fun to have our boy around. More later...

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