It is Hot! 90 degress today on November 14th , and where is winter? I am a Sibe puppy for goodness sakes! And I want coooooooooooold. Ok so enough of my little rant.
I have developed a new past time. I just love hanging out in our movie room, watching the world go by from the leather recliner. This is a front seat to the front yard! The entire world happens just a paw tip away! Some guy in a suit delivers paper to a box hangining on the wall each day.
Last week we got to take our home on wheels (the RV) to Yosemite National Park in California. It was our mom and dads first time there, and well ours too! The picture above is of Half Dome in Yousemite.
It turns out that this place has tons of bears. You must lock up all your food in the provided storage sheds on each camp site. Nights do get interesting for a pup when the need to relieve a pups self comes on, knowing the bears are out there just bearing around. Dad was not looking forward to our nightly wake ups. But all in all we went easy on him because it was cold outside and we were pretty darn cozy just doing some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's. Maddie the Chocolate Labbie was very alert in our rv all night long, and of course she tried moving all the pull curtains in the front cab so she could view the outside night world. That got challenging!
Here are some pics of our adventure.
Domino stealing my moms passenger seat, still a long way to go......
At our campsite, these are all the people right next to us that wanted to really be out in the nature. Buuuuurrrrr COLD at night in those tents. And we all must be very quiet from 10:00 p.m. on because one of the thing humans seek out Yosemite for is the the spirtuality and serenity of nautre experience there. Does woo woo'ing count for nature?????!!!!!
Our home on wheels at our camping site.
Domino, Maddie and Me taking a little stroll with dad.
And last, Being the nice Sibe Sister that I am, I allowed Domino to borrow my parka that I wore when I was a little kid when I went to vist santa for a pic my first Chrsitmas. I hope he really appreciated my kindness.
We had a fun time in Yosemite....and didn't see that special Yogi Bear guy, but did hear some bears in the bushes when we went out (very quickly) at night.
Hey guys, it's me Domino. Today the Siber-Mal Society group got together and in support of Meeshka, as she does her week of 100 posts, (Phew thats alot of posts), we are pawing up some pictures of ourselves in our finer moments of studliness and such. Meeshka is working very hard on this great cause to raise funds for Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue. I hope you like my stud like pose, I am still just a little guy, but I think I did pretty well for this wonderful event. So why don't you all go over to Meeshka's blog and take a look at all her hard work and help her in this great cause.
The morning starts out nicely. Mom and Dad having coffee together, with their new coffee maker, but thats another story. Me, Maddie and Domino doing our normal morning routine of havoc, running around living room, grabbing every toy out of our toy box, leaving them all over the floor, to prove that morning wake up play time was once again top notch! Running, doing zoomies and doing Arr Arr's on each others necks.
Mom decides its time for her to head off into the shower. All is wonderful. The morning progresses as normal. Mom and Dad go about doing some chores. Dad steps out to the garage, opens the garage door. Dad returns back into house about 10 minutes later. The ususal suspects are visable, yes, theres Maddie and Domino, but where is Frankie Girl? Calmly Dad checks each room. Unable to locate he becomes a bit alarmed and yells at my Mom, "Have you seeeen Frankie"? Mom immediatly becomes "what" "why" and her alarm is on full force. They check and recheck, closets perhaps? No. Dad does one more pass through of the master bedroom, yelling "FRANKIIIIIIIIE" "FRANKIIIIIIIE"
Now listen, I don't know what all the commotion was about, I was right here sleeping when dad finally found me.
* Mom leaves the shower glass door propped open just a bit after showering for ventilation..... hee heeee. It seemed like a good napping spot today.
Hey Everydoggie! Domino here today. I am now over 4 months old and growing strong and big. We went to Arizona and I got to go to our neighbors swimming pool across the street for a nice swim. Well we HAD to, what else would you do in 113 degree weather, and I have had all my puppy shots now so I can go to other doggies pads and be on common ground! Isn't this a nice pool with a beautiful sunset?
Hey Dad, stop your chit chatten, and lets go swim!
I'm gonna do it, I sweeeeeear
Ahhhh, all nice and cooled off now!
Time for some Zooomies! But wait, this is LaLee the Yorkie, my next door neighbor. I think she is a little frightened by my Siberian-ess Zooomies. Is she playing possum?
I think she is trying to be one of the bricks now...
Oh Well, times a waisten', might as well go check out some bigger and better stuff now, there is SO much to snope at nowadays for me, can't waste a minute.
Hey Everypup! It's Frankie and Maddie here today with some BIG news! We have a new baby BROTHER! Yup, you guessed it, his name is Domino! He is 3 1/2 month old black and white Siberian Husky. We are all very happy to have him come live with us and are having tons of fun playing with him and filling him in on what he can and can't do. So without further ado, we introduce you all to our little brother:
Based on your pup-onality, if you were a breed other than the one or ones you are now ... what would you be?
Hello everypuppy, Frankie Girrrl here and the above question is one that comes from my good friend Stormy of the AO4 she was playing outside the other day, and being the great thinker that she is, it came to her that it would be fun to play a new tag game that would reveal based on your puponality, if you were a breed other than the one or ones that you are now, what breed would you be?
Stormy, your such a deep thinker, and I really had to dig deep into the noogin for this one! I love being a Siberian Husky so much, it is tons of fun, and heck I get away with murder being one, so what is not to like! And the fun of running at top speed, whoa I don't ever want to stop doing that. We are sensitve types as well and I do not prefer to ever be scolded, ever!
So with all this in mind, I believe myself to be a Cocker Spaniel. Cocker Spaniels are a bit demanding of their owners time, yes that is my puponality, aha. I claw my mom many a day when she is not doing what I wish her and myself to be doing, instead of the silly things she needs or wants to get done.
The Cocker Spaniel has a delightful personality with a mischievous side that reflects a mind of its own. NO debate on this one! My Mind is the only Mind!
They are rather sensitive too so their humans must remain in the gentle mode. Oh yes, I am the Queen of Sensitivity~
They were also bred for hunting. Well, lets just say I hunt. I hunt for moths, bees, lizards and khats. I have fine hunting skills! I also hunt nice celaphaney envelopes but that is an indoor activity we won't go into details about.
And now for the rules... Yes pups, there are ALWAYS rules aren't there?
The rules of the tag game are: 1. Copy the question above and paste it into your post. 2. Answer it - and give a few reasons for why you think you'd be that breed or breeds. 3. Post these rules! 4. Tag ONE other blogger. If there are multiple pups within the same pack/blog, each pup should only respond when he or she is tagged. One at a time! 5. Most importantly, HAVE FUN!
This has been an interesting and fun game on the insights of us pups, and I will now turn the speaker over to my fellow beautiful Sibe friend Khyra, I can't wait to see what breed she would be, she has great intelligence and a wonderful sense of funny! Khyra you are up!
Hi Doggies, it's me Maddie talkin' with you today. Well here in Southern California it has been really heating up in the triple digits. We have been laying low and swimming in the pool. My Mom came home with a suprise for me the other day. Would you look at the size of this tennis ball!? She didn't think I would be able to get my mouth around it to do bite bites, but it took me a whole....hmmm 2 minutes tops to grasp it all! Here is a pic of me being worried that my big sis was gonna take it, she was doing the "Give it up" stare, or is it glare? Her looks are ruthless!
Awwww she made her move....now you will see how my mouth fits so nicely around the huge ball...No Problemo!
Now the only drawback is, is there are a few puncture wounds in my huge tennis ball, and when I go swimming with it in the pool, it floats to the bottom and heads for a fast roll in the deep end. Where there is no chance of any recovery by myself. *sigh* Whats a Labbie to do?
And I almost forgot to tell you, this very same day my Mom also gave me another toy. My very first Frisbee! I can't get enough of it. We go to the local school yard so it has room to really fly. I will try to post a vid of it tomorrow.
It's me Maddie! Frankie and I got to go on the biggest trip ever. We went with Mom and Dad to visit and stay 4 days/3 nights at the Grand Canyon in Arizona. It was so cool! We went in our new (used) Motor Home ( My doggie house on wheels) as I call it. We had so much fun. Three other human couples came along in their homes on wheels too. Each of those couples had 2 pups each! So we had EIGHT of us doggies there all sharing the fun! Everyone was so proud of us pups cuz we all got along.
This is Me and Frankie waiting patiently while all the humans unloaded when we first arrived....... "OK, When does the FUN begin?????
Free at last, Oh so many good smells to smell!
This is Frankie and Mom, Frankie asked to strike a pose by her Siberian Jeep, she wanted to prove to all her blogger friends that she was always on her best behaviour and representing da' Sibes well.
Mom had a great time taking pics of this place, it was so beautiful!
So pups, I will be back again tomorrow, thats all I have time to bark you about the trip for today.
One more day until Easter, and Maddie and I just wanted to wish all the Puppers in Blog Land a very Happy Easter. We hope you will all have a beautiful day filled with lots of good eats.
Okay now for the good stuff......
Look what Mom found at Big Lots today!
Mom named this guy "Domino", it is her make believe Black & White Siberian, We are not ready for the real real Domino to come into our lives and make us a 3 doggie house again.....so this is her "in leiu of", or in other words "pretend" B & W with Blue eyes..... I can't beleive she let this guy on her car!!!! Well he is pretty cute I suppose.
Second, she brought these home for us, and they are sooooo yummmmmy! Bakery Bite Size Cookie Crunchers with Carob Chips
I hope Domino doesn't think he is getting any of these. I think this guy is a poser.
Thirdly, If any of your humans are interested in a Shed Ender tool, they have them at Big Lots for the fantastic, incredible deal of the day steal..... $5.00
Now we must get this guy to come in, so I can enjoy those Cookie Crunchers.
I am a little nervous today. My Mom is packing my Dad up and taking him in for some repairs. Somethig about a Hernia. I am nervous, Dad was a little quiet and said lets just go get this surgery over and get home! Well I hope he comes home really soon. It's raining here, and its a very gloomy day.......
Well our pool is back up and running! Maddie took a surprise dipin-dipout yesterday, while Mom wasn't looking, but it was ok, until Maddie realised that just because the weather here in So. Cali has been fantastic (74 Degrees) these past few days, it doesn't really mean that the water feels all that fantastic, so she ran on the big NO Doggies outside gazebo patio furniture and flipped it all off the couch frame so she could get warm.
So this is where we start today. Speaking of No No furniture, well Mom was in the shower on the other end of the house, you see, so Maddie and I just assumed that because she left the entertainment room door open, we were all good to go on the leather theater seats....apparently this is not the case, as we were told the No doggies rule once again.....Oh well, sometimes you just gotta try, and so we did :-) Hey Wheres the Popcorn with BUTTER???, the Movie is about to begin!
Ok doggies, I am needing a little vent time here with you all.
Things this New Year are not shaping up so fantastic. My pool has gone defunct! The other morning as we were lying in bed snozzzzzing in the winter morning, we heard some not familiar noises comming from my pool. So Mom went to the doors to face the music of something she had feared gone wrong. As she looked out she didn't look real happy. "Mom, whats wrong with my pool, I said"! The entire back yard was flooded. As she went outside, (you know she made me stay inside), she really didn't look good. This is what she found......
"Uh Oh, This is not looking good"
Seems that my pool pump has xploded! What does this mean??? Well "NOT" that they let me swim in the cold winter weather in my pool or anything, though I do sneak a quick dunk now and again, it has been clearly told to me that this thing called a new pool pump bottom half, will be MY Birthday Present! What the heck! I will be just 2 years old on January 12, and just because this pool, OH I mean my pool, and the darn pump, has just happened to dump right before my Birthday, it is now being touted as my birthday pressie!!!!
Ok, on top of it all, We have went and bought the new bottom pool pump (pressie),but due to extreme rains in the state that NEVER rains......huh, we cannot even open my pressie and play pool pump. So my pool has very diminished water right now, the jacuzzi none, which is where I go round and round looking like a sharkie in the water.
Things this New Year are just not shaping up, just look at this......What the?
I have heard of cushie jacuazzi tubs, but this one takes the doggie bone! It seems Mom was very afraid from all the newscast she heard of the horrid California storm to be, she brought in all my pool backyard furniture cushions. Isn't this a strange place to lay them down? So, I wonder what all you doggies think! I am a bit perplexed by all of this. Happy New Year.. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooof
Do you think this Pool Pump should be presented as my 2 Year old Birthday Pressie? Or am I being treated unfairly??????
Should I go on Birthday Pressie STRIKE????? I have some deep thinking to do.
