Things You Wanted to Know About Me

My friends Echo & Holly have tagged me to answer these questions:

1. What is your favorite place to sleep?

I like to take naps in my crate. At bedtime I would prefer to sleep on the bed, but, alas, mommy doesn’t want any dog fur on the bed. So I sleep in their bathroom on the tile floor where it is cool.

2. Is there a specific trick your humans make you do to get treats?

All I really hafta do is look cute & give them the big eyes. When I finish all of my dinner, I get dessert – either a slice of cheese, my liver treats, or a pupsicle.

3. If you could spend an entire day doing anything at all with anyone, what would you do and with whom?

I’d hang out with my mommy, take a nap, let her play chase with me in the back yard (& Juneau, too-but it is more fun to chase him, he-he-woo-woo!!!).

4. What is your favorite toy?

My squeaky red puppy.

5. If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be?

I’d help to find a furever home for all of those homeless doggies out there.

Juneau - Phone Home

Mommy did her usual routine with us this morning (daddy couldn’t help cuz he is still going to physical therapy early in the mornings to get strength back in the arm where he had surgery) – woke up around 6:30am when she heard Juneau whining, took us out to our side run, put Juneau back in the crate in the bedroom for 40 more minutes of laying down, timer went off and took Juneau down to give him breakfast, let us out again to pee and poop, & then blocked us in the kitchen to play with our toys while she went upstairs to shower and dress for work. When she leaves us blocked in the kitchen with puppy gates, she always walks around to make sure that the room is puppy-proof. But she forgot something – Juneau has grown much since he came to live wif us & he jumps higher. Was she surprised when she came downstairs! Look what she found. Can you guess what Juneau was doing by the pictures?

Yep-roo, Juneau had jumped up and got the phone cord of our wall phone off the high counter where mommy keeps it. He used the part of the phone that mommy and daddy hold and talk through for a chew toy.

Maybe he wanted to phone his brothers and sisters to tell them that he likes his new home wif us and that we are taking great care of him!

And maybe not - Juneau is in tr-roo-ble again!!!!

Banana Pupsicle

Mommy gave me a really different treat for finishing all of my dinner. She said it was a banana pupsicle. It was sooo yummy and cold!!! It tasted better than an ice cube. I left the stick thingee when I finished all of my pupsicle. Mommy said that it was the last one.

So, I gave her the 'big eyes' look and she said that she would buy more for my desserts. I can't wait!

Taking Puppy to the Vet

Mommy & daddy came home late from taking Juneau to his puppy vet appointment. Our vet hospital is also an emergency pet hospital. Juneau had a 7:30 appointment, but he didn't get seen to almost 9:00pm. That wasn't what made mommy upset. She said that when she had Shanna & had an emergency with her, she was on the other side of the waiting watch so she knew what it was like & didn't mind waiting while more important cases were seen. 2 people came running in that their dogs were out loose & chased another dog & got hit by a car. The grown dog was brought in dead. The younger dog/pup was brought in through the back & had go right into surgery. The people did not stick around to see the outcome. Mommy was upset that people let the dogs out to run around without supervision so that there would be an opportunity for a disaster to happen. Also, know one knows if they were actually the owners or the ones who hit the dogs with their truck since they didn't stick around while the puppy was being worked on. Another family came in with their dog to say 'good-bye' to it. Mommy was upset because she said that she knew what they were going through. It brought back to many memories. Well, at least the night ended up on a good note for us. Juneau gained 4 lbs. - no wonder mommy has a hard time lifting him! He got his next round of puppy shots. Next time, she told me, I will be going with Juneau cuz I need my yearly shots. I don't want to share his time, can I put it off - oh, no - no shots!!!!

P.S. (Tuesday, 7/24) Mommy called our vet to find out if the puppy that was taken into surgery had survived. He did & he went home with his owners yesterday. His owners left when they brought the dogs in from the accident, because as they told our vet, they were having financial difficulties which they later resolved. Oh well, as mommy says, the world is made up of all kinds of people-some with more common sense than others. I know that if Juneau or I were very badly hurt, mommy or daddy would not leave right away until they knew we would be on the road to recovery.


Hello All Puppies,
I, Juneau, asked my mommy if I can speak for all Puppy-dom. We have rights, too, as being the new rising generation! To all of our larger brothers & sisters - QUIT BULLYING US!! One day, take note, we might be bigger than you & we will remember back when. So stand up & give a “Yip-woo-woo” for our puppy rights.

I do like my humans & my big brother, Cosmos. He lays down & lets me jump around on him & nip & bite at him. And, sometimes, we take naps together. But, other times, he forgets that I am a little guy & gets too rough. Then I run to my mommy & she calms the rough play down. Mommys & daddys are good help in standing up for puppy rights - Grrrrrrr-woo-woo.

The Toilet Paper Caper

Juneau did it!! When mommy & daddy brought us upstairs to the bedroom to go night-night, Juneau went into their bathroom & found the toilet paper & ran with it into their bedroom. Boy, did he make a mess! Mommy & daddy were laughing so hard I thought they were crying. As mommy was bending over to clean up the mess he made, I heard her call him a "little stinker." Gee, I need to try the toilet paper out. If Juneau likes it so much, maybe I can use it, too!

Revivals & Horses

Let's say that revivals with singing, loud voices & clapping do not make a good experience for starting out on a leisurely horseback ride with your husband & friend! It definitely is an eye opener for you & your horse. I guess Charlie Horse, Cutter & Sinbad do not appreciate group singing! Once we got past the "loud scarey singing point" we had a great 2-1/2 hour trail ride through the Park (especially once Marlene could stop her legs from shaking in the stirrups).

The Flying Puppy!!!

OK Juneau, I know that you have been going into my crate to get my bone & squeaky puppy toys. Who else but you! I caught you 'red-pawed' at it & daddy caught it on the camera! I probably haven't seen you doing it cuz you are quick & flew outta of my crate before I could catch you. I didn't know that puppies could fly!?!? I guess it's been too long since I was as little as him.

2 Rockin' Guys -

This is sooo cool, Woo-Woo! Echo has nominated me as a Rockin' Guy Blogger. Sky from the Kapp Pak said that I could nominate Juneau so he won't feel left out.

Happy Birfday to Me!

Mommy took us out before feeding Juneau singing all the way downstairs - Happy Birfday to Cosi! She really does not sing good, not like on the radio she leaves on for us when she goes to work. But we wuv her anyway. She gave me my birfday today & I am 2 yrs. old. When she was adopting me around February MAPAW & our vet said that I was around 1-1/2, so she said my birfday would be July 10. I got some extra kisses & liver treats. I also got my Honey Nut Cheerios in my crate. Juneau is a baby so I don't have to share wif him yet my Honey Nut Cheerios. Some days I eat while daddy eats his & he'll even give me a spoonful of milk in it sos I eat food wif him.

Mommy had a little procedure done at the doctor's office today. She was feeling very yucky & sore, but she is OK. Daddy said that she shouldn't go play wif the horsies for a couple of days until she starts to heal. She has me & Juneau to keep her busy cuz we know she misses the other big guys, too. She even got down on the floor & held & cuddled wif me. She said that I'm still her best big boy! I stayed around her in case she needed me.Woo-Oops - Mommy just noticed that her date set is off on her camera. Also, sometimes her blogs are delayed a couple of days until she has time to type for me. Taking care of me & Juneau plus going to work takes up a lot of her time. That's OK cuz she still has time for us.

Scratch My Back & I'll Scratch Yours!!

Norris (spotted-butt) has accepted Charlie (right pix) along with his best buddy, Cutter (left pix). This was the first time that I caught Norris & Charlie grooming each other. I just love to observe them when we turn them out - from grooming each other or running around & kicking up their heels!

Announcing Juneau

Mommy & daddy brought my new 8-week old brother, Juneau, home on Saturday, 6/30 from Jalerran Siberians in Clarion, PA. He is a black & white Siberian Husky with brown eyes. He was born on May 6, 2007. Juneau weighs 10.8 lbs. Our vet said that "he is a keeper!" His eyes are clear, heart & lungs sounded clear & good, & his back & spine are straight & strong. Woo-is-me, good-bye to peace & quiet in our house! He has to go bye-byes outside in the side run a lot so he doesn’t mess his crate or the carpeting. He barks & roos real loud when he in his crate (not a happy fellow). A big Sibe like me needs his “be-woo-ty rest.” But woo-no, he has to be taken out at night to go to the bathroom. He is kinda cute in a roly-poly sort of way. He tries to play with me, but right now, I kinda like him when he is sleeping cuz that is when he is quiet!!

4th of July

Joel & I went out to the barn for an early ride before all of the picnicers & hordes of people came out to South Park on a holiday. Actually, this was the first ride on a July 4th that we have ever enjoyed. The horses weren't even spooky. No one threw a firecracker at us from a car to just see what the horses would do. Dogs didn't chase us. Bikers respected us with the horses & vice versa. Even people in the vehicles on the main roads didn't rush us as we crossed in front of them. That is the way it should be - everyone who uses the Park to respect each other! Unfortunately, that is always not the case. Any time is a good time with Charlie! I love the freedom of being on his back & him taking me places.
