Today I'm going to talk about our poor Shadow. She's got tummy troubles. She doesn't feel good. See......
Mom was kinda worried and took her to the vet this afternoon. I told her to watch out for that guy cause he likes to tell Moms to cut back on the treats. Harrrmmmph! I just cannot believe that Mom pays money for advice like that! Turns out he didn't take just treats away from her....he took dinner and breakfast away too! Mom said it's not that bad. She can have rice (what self respecting Lab/Whippet wants rice instead of kibble??!) and a tiny bit of chicken. She has medicine to take too. He told Mom that Shadow should be fine. It's a "bug". What does he mean by "bug"?? Would that mean me he's referring to? I'm so confused! Shadow was mad at Mom for taking her there but she got back at her. She schmood the windows up on Mom's brand new Jeep. HARRROOOO! Oh well. I guess this means I have to be nice to her and not body slam her into the sofa for a few days. I'll find something else to do. In the meantime I'm wishing Shadow a speedy recovery. I miss her old grumpy self.

All you have to do is register and pick your favorite cause (which in this case is MaPaw of course!). Every time you get a hold of your Mom's plastic cards you log on to I Give and shop till you drop. A percentage of everything you buy for your Mom goes towards MaPaw. Isn't that great?! Right now they have a deal where they give an extra 5 bucks to MaPaw if you simply log on as a new customer and shop within the next month. The nice lady at MaPaw (Magnum knows her. She has bagels.) gets a check several times a year that they use to help other dogs that come to visit. And they have TONS of online stores to shop from.....Staples, Barnes and Noble, Drs Foster and Smith, Lands End, Petsmart, Dell Computers..........over 680 stores to shop in. We can even buy stuff on Ebay and get even more money for MaPaw by logging on to IGive first. Many times they offer deals that you wouldn't normally get on their regular website, like free shipping or a discount. Imagine that! A discount for treats! Tell your Moms today!

Did you ever have a spot you really, really like to be but don't really fit? For some reason this seems to provide endless entertainment for humans. Mom always tells the story of when Merlin was a little pupster and loved to sleep underneath the microwave cart. He went there for a nap one day and must have had a growth spurt because he couldn't get back out! Mom had to pull and tug. I've always kept this in mind when putting myself in various places. After all, he is who I need to look up to and admire so we don't want to make that mistake again. One of my most favorite spots is the living room chair. Mom thought she had it all figured out when she finally ditched the sofa. We used to take flying leaps into it when we had the zoomies so it wasn't looking too great. When she got these living room chairs she joyfully announced that she would no longer have to de-fur the sofa....because there would be no sofa. WHAT?! NO SOFA? What is she thinkin???? Sure enough, there was Dad lugging our faithful and comfortable friend out the curb. Shadow was very distraught as she looked out the window and saw it out there alone in the cold, harsh world. If that wasn't bad enough, in came these chairs. I knew what her theory was. She didn't think we'd fit. Shadow fits....see:
Meeka found a way around the entire situation. He thinks he's so smart.
And then there's me. Imagine Mom's surprise when she walked into the room and saw this:
The moral of this story is - never underestimate the Siberian will!
And I just want to add.....I DO TOO FIT!

Here's Meeka's. It's multicolored like his "multi-faceted personality" (GAG!):
This is Shadow's. Mom was real happy when she found this one:

I fussed and fidgeted as much as I could but they wore me down. Slightly humiliating but all in the name of good fun. The rules state that when one is tummy tagged, one must post a photo of their tummy and then tag three other bloggers. Sooooo...........

TAG, YOU'RE IT!!!!

Make sure you remind Mom to look for them next time she goes out shopping. You won't be sorry!

THANKS MOM, for keeping me and my four sisters safe in a very dangerous situation. Despite no food and horrible conditions, she did what she had to do to make sure we were born healthy. She never gave up no matter how hot and long the days became. Now THAT is a special mommy!
Sissy adopted a family in Pennsylvania and is spoiled every day. Her story is an inspiration to dogs and humans alike.
We wish all the mothers - human, canine, feline, and others - who tirelessly give their love and compassion to us, a wonderfully relaxing day filled with everything they love the best.
Love, Echo, Hope, Tela, Kiley, and Mischka

I had a subtropical depression named after my Mom - Andrea! LOOK! :
I know....can you believe it?! It'll be hard to top this one. She's amazed that I was able to pull this one off. She said she knew she should never underestimate my persistence but this one really blew her away....almost literally! I figure I'm good for another year. All those little mischievous moments I've had just faded completely away in her mind. HA! I'm so tired from the stress and effort that I need a nap. Catch you all tomorrow everybuddy.

One of my Mom's favorite places is the Lakota Wolf Preserve (www.LakotaWolf.com) in Columbia, New Jersey. It's not a real large preserve but they three different types of wolves there.......the Artctic, the Tundra, and the Timber. The wolves are kept safe in large fenced areas in natural surroundings, with plenty of space to run and play.
They have scheduled daily talks from the caretakers who know each wolf individually.
If you're within driving distance, Lakota is a wonderful place to go to appreciate the beauty of these wonderful animals. Mom says it's definately worth the trip!

Biscuits! And do they smell great or what?! Any self respecting Siberian would have to taste test right? Well - just look at this:This is just not fair! She expects me to sit here, see them, smell them, and be content. Women!

Emily brought her two brothers, Conan and Moose. They're both MaPaw dogs. They look different than us and boy are they BIG! They are mixed with Mastiff. Mom really loves them alot and was so happy to see them and their Mom and Dad again.

I have to work hard on not stealing the short one's stuffies. Little ones often come up to pet me and if they have a stuffy in their hands wouldn't you think it was for ME? Well, apparently not. At one event Mom and Dad had to replace a stuffy cause I didn't want to give it back right away. I got it all gushy and made the little boy cry. Geez. How did I know he didn't really want to give it to me? I've been practicing hard all year to give things back. It's not fun but a guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do.
I hope some of you can come out and say hi!

Mom was so taken aback with my cuteness that she started to call me "Bug-A-Boo". I know - ridiculous huh? She claims I began to respond to it, especially after she shortened it to "Bug". If only I had paid more attention. So now I'm stuck with it. Bug. How humiliating. Now really. Do I have antennae or wings?
Apparently Mom felt compelled to give the others nicknames as well. It's only fair after all. Meeka - who feels he's the resident Prince, is stuck with a doozy. HAHAHAHAHA! This one was chosen by our girl. Meeka HATES it. Here goes......Meeky-Beeky-Bonker-Boos. I do believe that's worse than mine. Bwwwaahhhh!
Shadow has one too but she claims she likes it. Shadow Missy Muffin Twinkle Toes Prissy Pants. Yikes! So far Shyla seems to be stuck with Princess Pea or Princess Runs-Like-Wind.
Why do they do this to us? Do any of you have silly nicknames??

Shyla loses interest real fast. Above you can see her hoping that "race day" will soon be over.
He gets bored pretty fast too. Just what IS it about this car thing? I heard about a dog that chased cars. Mom says that's not a good idea. I don't see any dogs chasing the cars on TV. Once I saw a bunny run across the track. They had to stop the race to let the bunny cross. I like bunnies! That was an exciting race.
That's what we do on Sunday afternoons. I say it's a good time for a nap:
