Love is furever....

Dear friends & fans of cybersibes,

I apologise for the long time between posts.  Most of you know we moved to Florida in June 2016, and honestly, I just haven't taken the time to post.    It has been quite an adjustment, but Jack & Moo got to enjoy indoor a/c, a new treat for them!    I started working at several places, and time just seem to slip by.  We bought a "new" retirement home in a +55 community and spent several months fixing it up, getting ready to move in this coming May, when our lease is up.

Now for the unexpected part:    Jack and Moo both crossed the Rainbow Bridge with 34 days of each other.   After battling liver disease for several months, Moo passed away in our arms, at home, on Dec. 16th.   We miss her terribly, she was an unending source of joy and humor to our family.

 We lost Jack suddenly on Jan. 20, just a couple days ago as I write this.   He collapsed while I was taking him to the car for a ride, and we rushed him to the emergency specialists.   While working on him, he started to crash, they almost lost him.  We were told they suspected a tumor was bleeding out into his abdomen.   This made a rather short list of options, none of which would be without substantial pain and prolonged suffering.  We made the decision to release him.   We got to spend a couple hours with him, and he was peaceful and calm.

I whispered to him to go with Moo when he saw her.  He looked past me, I had the feeling he could already see her.   While we are deeply heartbroken, it makes my heart glad to know they are together again forever.   Those two adored each other.

This is so hard to write, we feel lost without our furry family members.  In spite of the pain of losing them, we wouldn't have it any other way.   They made our lives run over with happiness.  We are so grateful for them, and LOVE lasts forever.

Sorry for the long wordy post, but JoJoe & I wanted you to know how much we appreciate your friendship over the years, and your love for all our beautiful cybersibes: 
Star, Sherman, Tori, Jack, and Moo.   
God bless you and yours.

April Fool's Snow (& other stuff)

On Jack's birthday, Mom was trying to take a few nice pics of us...
She says I look grumpy.  I'm just TRYING to be patient.... alright already - toss me that treat!
Then she tried to take a nice "Birthday Picture" of Jack....
I couldn't believe she didn't want me in it!
Oh fine!   I'll just go dig a hole!

A couple days later, the bestest thing happened-   
We got SNOW!!! 
We've had around 5-6 inches of snow over the past few days.... is it really spring,  or is Mother Nature just playing an April fool's joke on us?  Either way, we liked it!   
But now its melted and Mom is not happy about how muddy our paws are when we come inside.  But what's a little mud between furiends?

Jack got a new bed fur his birthday.... but he wants his old one back.    He kinda reminds ya of that story about the Princess  and the Pea sitting on top of both old beds, doesn't he? 

"Prince Jack and the Pea"
And that's about all there is to tell.

Happy Birthday Jack A-roo!

Its a special day here, cause Jack is celebrating his 11th birthday!
Mom says we'll be getting an especially good dinner, and treats tonight to celebrate!
I like the sound of that!   Hmmm.... I wonder if Jack could have birthdays more often?

Happy birthday from all of us, big guy!

your sweet, darling, loving fur-sis,  Moo 



The snow is gone, and outside it feels like spring is on its way, which makes the bipeds very very happy.  (We still have paws crossed for more of the white fluffy stuff, but don't tell the bipeds!) 

Mom thought we needed to update our blog decore, so she made a new header and updated to a springy theme.   Whatever....

The most interesting thing going on are cookies.    
One of us is willing to ask nicely...

while some other pup is reluctant to comply...  

I don't think she should get the same reward as that handsome boy who posed so nicely.  But I'm not the one holding the cookies. 
I really can't figure out humans... 
I co-operate = I get a cookie
Moo doesn't cooperate = Moo gets a cookie.

I don't get it, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. 

Woos & a-roos,
Jack-A-Roo & Miss Moo


9" of Fluff!


Moo, Saturday morning, waiting for snow:
"Oh, furgetaboutit, I've been out here fur hours-
nothing but itty bitty snowflakes!"
 it DID start snowing heavily and by 6 pm, woo could hardly see your own tail!
I showed Mom our beawootiful yard when she got home from work-

warmer and no more snow, but we have 9 inches of it to play in right here in our own backyard! 
Hey Mom!    She did it again!!!
 Moo's been carrying around my green-dog tennis-ball, but I think she went snow-crazy & ripped him to shreds this afternoon.   *sigh* 

"What?  Like woo were gonna keep it furever???"

Mom, woo did lock up all my pengies & toys out of her reach again, right?

Yes, Jack, they're all safe, my handsome, handsome, boy.
 ~and that's what its all about!

A-roos to yous and toodle-woo,
Jack A-roo & Miss Moo


January Snow Watch

Well.... its January and the only snow we've seen was about a half-dozen flakes floating in the air last week.   Its time to take pen in paw:

Dear Mother Nature,

We want to report a snow deficit on our island.    Our Siberian & Mal furiends are posting all kinds of pictures of fluffy snow in their neighborhoods.    They are playing in it, rolling in it, sleeping in it, and pulling sleds through it.

We will post a picture from January last year:

and January the year before:

and January the year before that, too:
FYI... we didn't really drink a bottle of wine, we found the empty in our bushes, honest!

So, what gives?  We don't mean to complain, but after all, we ARE Siberian huskies, and we LOVE snow.

Any chance woo can blow some snow our way soon?    We would be grateful for any flakes woo can spar and send our way.

Jack-A-Roo & Miss Moo


Merry Christmas to All!

T'was the night before Christmas and all thru the house,
mom & dad are both working and cleaning it out.
There's company coming, my gosh, its a mess!
And the challenge to clean up puts us up to the test.
Should we be good sweet puppies and not drool or shed?
Or should we be good Siberians and plunder & wreck?

Moo's honed her unpacking skills with tooth and claw,
she's been opening packages all week with her jaws.
Mom's picked up the shreddings from pictures & cards,
and dad found his ink cartridges strewn in the yard

But Jack minds his manners and is such  a good boy,
He plays with his Pengie and naps with his toy
Till Moo tricks him and takes it, she's sneaky like that,
and keeps Jack away by being a brat.
She holds Pengie hostage till Mom interferes
Mom returns it to Jack as he cries out his fears.

So it seems that this evening, all things will be done,
The house will be sparkling, set for Santa to come.
We'll just be "us", take the ups with the downs,
Jack will be very good,  Moo - a fun-loving clown.
We wish you "Merry Christmas" with all of our might,
A blessed day with your families, and to all, a good night.

From our pack to yours,
we send you wishes for a very Merry Christmas with your loved ones!
Pat, JoJoe, Jack & Moo
