Ho Hum Sunday

Hi Everybuddy -

It was a Ho-Hum day today. Not much of anything exciting went on this weekend. This was us working hard earlier today. There was much supervising to be done:

Mom has been coaching her snowmen since there's a slight chance of snow for our area tonight and tomorrow. She said she doesn't want us to get our hopes up though. We were outside with our snooters in the air trying to catch a whiff but so far nothing but smoke coming out of somebuddy's chimney.

We want to take a moment to send our thoughts and prayers to The Brat Pack. You recall that they just recently lost their beloved Thrawn, who was such a huge part of their pack. Their Mom very lovingly adopted a Sibe puppy named Durango from her local shelter last week.

Unfortunately they found themselves fighting an unexpected bout of Parvo for the past several days. Despite heroic efforts, precious Durango lost his battle yesterday, and went to the bridge to be with Thrawn. Their Mom is reeling from two such tragic losses so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. We hope each new day will bring relief from her anguish and she will move on to find yet another pup in need to bring into her amazing pack.

On a brighter note, I am pleased to announce that my pack is no longer expired!

Mom and Dad went to our favorite food and treat store to get our 2008 licenses. It's about time! We were very concerned we would be busted and we'd all get hauled to dog knows where! They made it up to us by bringing home two bags of some of our favorite treats - Eagle Pack Holistix Biscuits. If you haven't tried them yet be sure to tell your Mom that Echo said they're quite yummy.

Meeka is also pleased to report that the kind people that make the PA dog licenses had him in mind this year. They are a bewootiful Royal Blue in honor of his Royal Highness.

We'd like to thank everybuddy who has signed our guest book so far.....Thank Woo! For those who haven't, please do. We love to see where everybuddy is from. We've moved it to the top of our Blog to make it more accessible.

That was our day. See......pretty uneventful. That's okay though. Uneventful is kinda good sometimes.

Hi, Echo!
Sundays are for doing nothing! Well, that is what my mom says! And I believe her!
Glad you had yummy treats!
I am so sad about Durango. I've been praying for him, Maryann and the pack.
Kisses and hugs

Hi, Team-
We're having a ho-hum start to the week here, too. No snow in January makes huskies (and their human friends) justifiable grouchy. We're expecting a big storm today, though. Keep your fingers crossed!

Thanks for stopping by. We don't live in GA but we're like PA. We need stiffer laws and better enforcement of what laws there are. Are you aware of the Tammy Grimes case in PA? She rescued a dying dog on a chain because those paid to help wouldn't come and she was convicted of stealing the dog. The owners were never even cited for abuse. If you missed it, you can find it on

Hi-Woo Echo,
This message is frum Sheriff Cosmos in reply to yur comment about "due process" about me busting Black Bart Juneau for chewing up the Victim's gate & chair. Wells,I did process of elimination. Daddy wasn't around when it happened. Mommy's jaw wouldn't allow her to chew up those things, & I don't do things like that. But the lil demon, I means Black Bart Juneau was the only varmint left. Sos he was "busted." I'm glad you like our story. Mommy had fun putting it together wif the pics & the cowboy hats (even tho we look like doofus wearing them!).
We were all so sad about little Durango. Something should be done about that shelter.
Til next time,

You guys look really comfortable! I'm glad your license are blue. Ours are pink. What was the county thinking? Boys don't wear pink! Mom made me wear it anyway since apparently the fine is $150 and she says I don't want to go without food for $150 worth. I agree.
