"Yep - that's looks to be just about perfect"
Here's a closer look at the work in progress. Doesn't that look yummy??:
Note my strategic positioning so that if she takes a couple steps back she'll trip and I'll have to rescue a flying flapjack. Clever huh? :
"Now just a couple steps back...that's it...."
Here I am teaching Shyla one of my techniques to getting what I want. Cute huh? :
"Please may I have some now?"
My strategy worked! We all enjoyed the fruits of her labor and got some pancake pieces . It's always beneficial when there's a couple that don't come out quite right. Shyla can't have wheat but she was able to enjoy some scrambled eggs. Mmmmm! It was a great day!

Oh my Dogness! Look what came in Mom's email!!
Whoa! Do you see that phrase - FROST ADVISORY ??? That's almost SNOW! Taking into consideration the fact that it's been a gazillion degrees way beyond when it should be, I'll take it! Mom said that somebuddy named Jack will put frost on our pumpkins. Sorta like this:
That might be a bit extreme but you get the idea. He's not a happy fella but he doesn't have a bewootfiful Siberian coat like we do. HEY! Maybe Mom can scoop up some of our spare husky hair that's rolling around the house (literally) and help him out a bit. All's I can say is "Thanks Jack!". There's hope that we'll be romping in the white stuff real soon! I leave you with the following photo of Meeka so that we can all dream of what may not be too far away after all:
"Hello little snowflake!

Hi Everybuddy -
I want to report on our taste test of a new canned food. It was YUMMY! By Nature - who makes some great treats that we like alot also makes a line of wet and dry organic dog and cat foods. Trappe Feed recently began to carry it so we gave it a try. We had the Organic Turkey, Sweet Potato, and Peas. Two paws up from us! Tell your Moms to look for it and see for yourself.
Check out my new poll. In light of my horrific nail clipping this past weekend, Mom got curious.

Hi Everybuddy -
"I see you Mom. Remember those new slippers you bought?"
"Yeah yeah - I'm cute. Can I have my paw back please??"
"Find a happy place....find a happy place....."
Oh my dogness was I ever glad to get down off that table! What were they thinkin? The moral to this story is be aware, be VERY aware of which line you're standing in. That's okay though because I gave Mom the evil Siberian eye and guess what? Look:
"Woo! Look at those! One fell Mom."
So I survived the evil nail clipping and was rewarded by the way - I got some yummy frosted cookies with sprinkles on them. I shared them with the others when I got home. And we got all the other treats and our favorite canned food. Life is good.
Tune in tomorrow for more pictures of our wonderful day at the Meet & Greet!

Hi Everybuddy -
The weekend is quickly approaching and Mom said we get to have some fun on Saturday! Our most favorite food and treat store is having their first annual Barktoberfest. Doesn't that sound great? They're located in Trappe which is in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. You can get directions here. Their website isn't quite ready yet so they have a temporary site set up with hours, directions, and basic information. Mom just LOVES going to this store. They have a wide selection of natural and holistic pet foods and treats and tons of cool toys that don't have lead (whatever that is). There will be lots of fun events on Saturday - a costume contest, raffles for cool baskets with all proceeds benefiting the rescues that are there (like MaPaw), holistic and natural food reps, and much more. Including (and I really, really wish Mom hadn't seen this) free nailclipping. That's right folks. Guess what that means? Echo (that would be me) gets to have his nails clipped. Oh yippee. That's okay though cause Mom promised we can shop afterwards if I don't fuss and do the Siberian-Scream-Of-Death. I'll also get to say hello to Rocky Pup and Maverick who will be there at the MaPaw tent. You can see the flyer for the Barktoberfest in the sidebar of this blog.
So come on out and say hello! I hope to see you there!

Ummm...yeah. It would take Mom WAY longer than 21 days to meet that requirement! At least she's honest. Anywoo, we give the people that started this trend two paws up. Certainly nothing comes easily but we could all use a few reminders to stop complaining so much and appreciate the world around us a bit more. Follow my example. Does this face look as if it complains?? Pfft! Life is good.

Whew! Am I ever glad this weekend is over! We worked very hard. Dad had a new project and we needed to help him. It's a good thing he has us to help otherwise he may not have ever gotten done. It took two weekends. Of course it also helped that he was using official Siberian tools. Take a look:
Good thinking Dad! There's nothing better than that to get the job done right. Here I am helping him choose just the right tool for the job:
"Yup! That's the one!"
Then we needed to get some other supplies together:
"Here ya go Dad!"
Next we measured:
"Steady now.....be careful!"
Then it was time for us to be sure Dad did it right:
"Just a minute Dad - measure twice - cut once is what they say."
Finally, we were finished. That was alot of work! Tomorrow the floor guy comes again to measure for the laminate we helped Mom choose for the living room and dining room. Stay tuned for more on that this week. Oh my dogness - they're lucky we're here. I don't know what they'd do without us!

Hi Everybuddy -
It's that time again.....it's Website Wednesday! Today we're going to have a little fun. Those who know Mom are aware that she has a real soft spot in her heart for the mutts of the world. She LOVES the mixed breed dogs and there sure are alot of em! Oh yeah - she adores us too but how much perfection can one live with? There has to be SOME unpredictability in life right? Throw caution to the wind and live dangerously - make your own mutt. Visit Animal Planet's Mutt Maker and have some fun!
P.S. At the risk of speaking too soon, I think summer got blown away in Pennsylvania last night. Oh....not Summer with the capital S - summer with the small s.
Oh.....and before I go I must wish Mom & Dad a very happy Anniwoosery! Today they've been married more than a quarter of a century. WOO! Mom said she'd marry Dad all over again. I see that getting married involves CAKE. They could have at least waited for me to have a big cake like that. Hmmph.

A couple days ago, my bewootiful friend Sitka and her Mom discovered a dash on her tail. Then our buddies over at the AO4 discussed it as well. There was even some speculation that the mysterious dots and dashes were from a group of Outer Space Dogs who are trying to send a message to us! We think that's very cool since Mom and Dad have often studied the dot on my tail! Take a look at my dot:
Shyla has been embellished with a dash:
Then there's Meeka. Meeka did NOT enjoy this photo session AT ALL! This was one of the more pleasant photos of his royal belly. There's a story behind that mark you see. When he was a little tyke we noticed the mark and it looked amazing just like a heart. We called him "our Care Bear". Naturally the Royal One didn't appreciate that very much and felt he was worthy of something much more becoming of a Prince. Eventually it morphed into what our boy insisted was a perfect devil face....complete with horns. Yikes! Mom didn't like that at all. Now it's just a .........shape. We're still trying to figure out what it is. Here he is reluctantly modeling his artistry:
"This is SO humiliating and you WILL be sorry!"
You can also see Shyla's serious tail in the picture as well. She has a very, very dramatic tail and isn't bashful about showing it off. Of course that annoyed Meeka even more since he doesn't like to share the camera lens.
And of course we can't forget Shadow. She wasn't thrilled with the photo session either. She's kinda shy and likes her privacy. I heard some rumbling about whether we had spoken to her manager about this photo session. She doesn't really have any unique marks but her tail curls and kind of has a kink in it. So we've concluded that she has a comma! See:
So that's the tail (HA! Get it.....TAIL?) of our dots, dashes, commas, and whatever it is on Meeka's belly.

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.
Another great one is the Song Game. What is our theme song? Mom agrees that our previous choices definately still apply:
Mine would be "I Gotta Be Me" and "I Did It My Way". I really don't understand the entire thing but I guess I'll go with it.
Meeka ended up with "King Tut". Mom decided that Shadow's theme song should be the instrumental "Flight Of The Bumble Bee" because she's so hyper and never sits still, and Shyla got "My Fair Lady".
Shyla said Mom is looking for the camera again. Something about the Dot and Dash post and my tail. ::sigh::
"Pssst! Mom's gonna take a picture of your tail!"
