She even has long eye lashes! Shyla has what my Mom calls "natural beauty'. Hrrmpph. That sounds like a girly thing too. Speaking of beauty, let me get back to my exciting announcement! There's a very nice person who loves MaPaw and everything they do. She's a Mary Kay consultant and has a website (kinda like me!) where people that need some help with their natural beauty can buy some great products . They'll be able to go to this website http://www.marykay.com/klanduyt/default.aspx to order anything they like. Here's the greatest news.....she's donating 20% of all of the total order to MaPaw so that they can keep helping Jasper and Dawkin, and shipping is FREE, FREE, FREE!!
We think this is totally cool and give her two paws up! THANK WOO!

Today I'm going to tell you all about my bewootiful sister Tela. I have 4 bewootiful sisters and Tela is the one that looks the most like me. See......
I'm very proud of Tela. She regularly visits a school for visually impaired children (http://www.sabvi.com/). Without any formal training, she has learned to be very gentle with the children. She gives them lots of hugs and lets them feel her soft fur. Even though she's a husky she makes sure she is on her best behavior when she's there. She doesn't get into any trouble which for members of my family, takes alot of concentration. She even lies calmly down next to the children when it's time to be quiet and listen. Just look at that!
I think Tela deserves a big WOO and two paws up for making these kids so happy!

I found a project. The toilet paper needed to be organized so.........
......I took care of it! See how proud I am? Mom really liked my creation and said that I had "endless possibility". You will find my famous "Recipe for Disaster" in the MaPaw Cookbook (www.Sibes.com) so that you can make these wonderful creations yourself.
This is me playing with Shyla. Mom says I have to be careful so that I don't squash her since she's a skinny girl. (We're working hard on fixing that):
Shyla's learning this Siberian Play thing quickly. She didn't really know how to play when she first got here so I had to show her the ropes. Our friend calls her "Princess Runs-Like-Wind" because she chases me all over the place and then nips my ears. She's a funny grrrl!
Now here's some pictures of Meeka and I playing. Some people see this and don't understand it. It's just how we Sibes play. The Lab that lives next door doesn't understand it at all and barks at us when we play:
Mom really likes the picture on the left. That shows how quick we are!
Shadow doesn't like to play with us AT ALL! She just looks at us and shakes her head. Sometimes she gets in the way and we accidentally run her over. She's a smart pup though and has learned ways to stay safe. This is one of her favorites:

This is Meeka:
He likes food too. His idea of food and mine are different. I like things like Peanut Butter and Hamburgers. He's about to get into BIG trouble here. He's visiting the gerbil and he's probably thinking about food. Mom says his intentions are less than honorable whatever that means. (Note: no animals were harmed in the process of obtaining this photograph). He likes to peek through the fence at the birdfeeder too. He's a sneaky guy!
Lately, Mom has been very worried about what's in our food. She must be mighty worried because she and our girl are baking our treats from scratch now! Yep! That's the best because that means the Peanut Butter jar comes out and I LOVE PEANUT BUTTER!
She said she is so glad she has the official MaPaw Recipes For Rescue Cookbook. It has pages and pages of recipes for dog treats. How cool is that? This is what it looks like:
It has recipes for people food too, and lots of cool pictures of rescue dogs. But that's not the best part! Every penny that is paid for this way cool book goes to help their rescue dogs. They have some real sick guys right now so they would love to sell more of these cookbooks. It's real easy to get one. Just visit their cool website (www.sibes.com) and you'll see it on their front page. Pssst.....Mother's Day is coming up fellow pups! Mom would LOVE one of these! But hurry, they'll be gone soon! Tell em Echo sent you.

Many years ago my Mom and Dad adopted a Lab/Husky puppy. His name was Merlin. He grew and grew and he finally stopped when he weighed about 95 pounds. Mom said he was a "handful". I'd say so if he was that big! I don't know how he even fit in her hand! He didn't have a very good start in life and wasn't real socialized. They worked hard with him and eventually he came around but never really liked other people. But he loved them and they loved him even more so they kept him. When Merlin was 8 he was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. They were told to take him home and love him which they did. He lived for another year when they realized it was time to say goodbye. Mom said she cried so many tears that there weren't any left and when he went to the Bridge he took a piece of her heart with him. Dad said it was the worst day of his life when he had to say goodbye. They were all very sad. They realized that they simply couldn't live without the joy of a dog in their lives so off to the SPCA they went. They came home with Shadow - a bewootiful Black Lab/Whippet mix. They loved her very much but something was missing. Could it be that they, like many others who have endured the Husky personality, were missing all of those strong personality traits that only a Husky or Husky mix has? They did some research and found MaPaw. They filled out an application and were soon introduced to (cue trumpet fanfare) Meeka! It took three visits before Shadow realized that Meeka wasn't going to eat her. He just wanted to play. She finally gave in and let him stay. They quickly became friends and all was well in the household. In the midst of this happy harmony, Mom and Dad became volunteers with MaPaw. One day they were notified of a huge rescue in NJ that involved all of the area Husky rescues. Among several others, a very pregnant female Husky was brought into MaPaw's loving arms. Her name is/was Sissy.....and that's my Mom! On July 24, 2003 my 4 sisters and I were born. 5 bouncing baby Siberians!
