I'm very pleased to announce Mom has finally decided I am old enough to stay out of my crate for the day when all the bipeds are gone. Yesterday was my first day out. Mom and the little biped were leaving in the morning and I thought mom had just forgotten to take me to my crate. I thought I had scored the jackpot! FREEDOM! Then she goes around and pets ALL three of us and says "goodbye, be good". Wow, she knowingly knew she was leaving me out of my crate. I was pretty good for the most part. The only thing I did wrong was to destuff the pink fire hydrant we won from Steve and Kat during the blogathon (sorry guys) and I picked a couple pairs of the little biped's socks out of the laundry basket and carried them to various points in the house. Grandma called me a sock thief. I was really super worried mom was going to yell at me, but she patted me on the head and told me I had been a good boy. From the stories she's told me about some of the foster dogs she's had I know it could have been A LOT worse!
Today was my second day out and NO problems today! I was a very good boy!
Oh, we got all kinds of packages in the mail today. There were 2 mom said were for us but we have to wait until Christmas to get them...hmmm....I wonder what they are. You can vote for what you think we are getting in our new poll.
Sky's new "medicine" came today. Mom gave it to him right away. She was very glad Sky chewed it rather than her having to give them to him the hard way. Picture this: mouth pried open, biped hand stuck down throat. Not pleasant! So, good boy, Sky!
Well, I better get going Kelsey Ann is going to chase me off the 'puter soon. He he he.....I think she's very annoyed with mom right now that I have been given free reign during the day!

pet store. My Canidae was on sale and mom and dad wanted to make sure they got some more for me before the sale ended. They also wanted to get a new food for Sky because of his itchy skin issues, but more on that later when he tells you about his weekend. Right now it's my turn. If you all remember I act like a scaredy cat when I meet new people, but mom was very impressed when I went up to a nice lady in the store...she even gave me some treats. Before we paid at the checkout my little biped picked out some nice gourmet treats for us. She gave them to us this afternoon. They were really yummy!
Ok, move over Canyon, my turn!
Sky here, I wish I would have had as fun a weekend as Canyon. I guess I should have figured out something was not normal when I had a different food in my bowl. I've been having itchy skin issues that don't seem to be getting better. Mom and Dad have tried just about everything to help me feel better, but I'm still itchy and scaly, but only on my face and my front elbows. Mom had researched my issue before and asked the V-E-T about zinc responsive dermatitis and he said it could be entirely possible that I have it. Apparently this can be fairly common in Northern Breed Dogs. The V-E-T had told mom and dad before they could try a zinc supplement but then after the V-E-T visit my itchies seemed to heal up some. Well, they now really think it's that zinc thingy and ordered my some supplement to help me get better. But look what they did to me in the mean time to help my skin heal
metal licking behavior.....we will see.
So, hopefully my torture is over and the supplements will help me to feel better!

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving and that your bipeds snagged some good deals this weekend Christmas shopping. My crazy mom was out of the house at 3:40AM Friday morning to go shopping. (Mom here: This is the first year I have ever ventured out for the early morning specials...not sure if it will happen again) Then 10 minutes after mom left the little biped woke Dad and all of us up. She wanted to know "where mommy go?" Dad told her mommy went shopping and the little biped's reply? "it dark, I go back to sleep". So smart and she's not even 3 yet! She knew we were supposed to be in bed sleeping, not shopping!
Anywoo, my real reason for posting was to tell you about my annual trimming of the Christmas tree. It's tradition for mom and dad to put the artificial tree up on Thanksgiving Eve.
This is the almost finished product.
This is me inspecting the treeHere are some pics of my finishing touches.....every house needs some husky tinsel. I think I might be able to spare some if your humans would like me to mail some. Maybe I should seek out a patent for the husky tinsel....if I made money it could help Dad to pay the ginormous electric bill he'll have in a month or so.
Well, all, enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann
Pee ess: Notice how in that last pic Canyon was just laying around while I was doing all the work??? A queen's work is never done!

Here's the big Christmas light unveiling. Dad worked hard for 2 days straight....even in the rain! Dad estimates betweeen the front and back of the house he has over 15,000 lights. Make sure to turn your volume down until about halfway through the video. It's really windy and the video is really loud, but be sure to turn it back up lfway through so you can hear the music. We will try to get a better video later on when it's not so windy. Enjoy! Hope everyone got lots of turkey. We didn't get turkey but I think mom will give us some of our special canned food tonight.
This following video is something we aspire to in years to come.....but know we are SOOOOOO not worthy financially and time-wise. We added it for your enjoyment!

I had to make sure I was able to perform normal bodily functions on the go.....very important for a working dog.
After practicing in the yard for awhile, Mom and Dad decided it was time for us to take it to the street in preparation for the parade tomorrow. We walked for about a block and then walked back to the house. (sorry I don't have any pictures of this but the battery in the camera decided to take a rest, we promise it will be charged up tomorrow for the parade) When we got home mom opened the back of the Sibe Vibe and started unloading the various items she had gotten today for Clark Griswold's, aka. Dad's, fantastic best-in-town Christmas light display. He is predicting this year we will have between 15, 000 and 20,000 lights. As soon as there was enough room in the back of the Vibe I hopped in. Mom and Dad forgot to tell me we wouldn't have to leave for the parade until tomorrow morning. So, I'm off to rest up for my BIG "official" sled dog debut!
Kisses, Sky boy

Canyon told me to tell you all he has found a new toy. He'll have to wait a few days though, to tell you about it. Since this weekend's blogging is all mine with the wagon practice and the actual parade.

It's me, Canyon. I managed to steal the computer from Mom and Kelsey so I could tell you about my proudest moment. The MaPaw Calendar is available. Click here to order for only $15.95 + $2.50 S&H (price gets lower for multiples). Don't forget, I'm featured in October because I was the big winner of the MaPaw Howl-o-ween Photo Contest. When you go to the website, you can view the cover, the reverse and each month. Here's some of our favorites. The calendar has pictures of MaPaw dogs and sometimes their fur-sibs who live with them. Kelsey was Miss February in the first MaPaw calendar, and Kelsey and Sky also got their picture in the 2007 edition. It's finally my turn!!!
Here's the cover featuring Rudy. Rudy was Ma's first Siberian and he's gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
May features these sibes at a very picturesque locale
July has a sibe about to go for a swim
And of course, here I am featured on Howl-o-ween
Don't forget that the big guy in the red suit likes to give calendars as stocking stuffers and he always needs help shopping, so you might as well order more than one - remember the price gets lower when you order more.

Nothing too suspicious there. Then, Mom and the Little Biped went next door to see the neighbors, and he got more data for his second report:
What's she doing with those other dogs, especially the cute, little puppy?!?!? I'm feeling so dejected and jealous. I hope that they don't decide to get another puppy, especially one that's not a sibe. The last time they did that, we ended up with the Annoying One, and we all know what a disaster that was.

We had a GREAT night last night. Mom and the little biped were at a family get-together since they have relatives in from Minnesota. Mom told me they had lots of yummy food. I was getting really jealous and then she told me she brought some home to share with us. Apparently the steaks they were having were very big and she couldn't finish hers ,so she wrapped it up and brought it home for us. She even got some of the other relatives to throw their scraps in the pile. Do we have her well-trained or what???? It was sooooooo yummy!!!!!
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

The Annoying One got in Trouble today, so, I spent the rest of the afternoon rubbing it in.
Everydoggy and all the bipeds were in the living room watching Spirit, a movie about a horse, this afternoon. The Little Biped went to her play room to get a toy. Apparently, its really hard for the small bipeds to sit still for too long. She got back there and yelled "Can-yay, hum!" (Translation - "Canyon, come!") Canyon got up to see what his girl wanted. A moment later, she came back crying and saying "Mommy, Daddy, Can-yay pee my doggy." Mom and Dad went back to the play room and found Canyon with his ears back, his tail between his legs, pee on Rock, and a puddle on the floor. If you don't remember Rock, here's a picture of him acting as the dummy for the pet first aid demonstration that Meeshka's human and my mom did at the Hike N Howl. Rock does really well at playing the dummy. I'm pretty sure that he must be a dummy because if I had been peed on, I wouldn't have taken it without retaliation.
Mom and Dad got really mad and yelled at him for a few minutes. Dad dragged him outside while Mom cleaned up his mess and gave Rock a bath. I have now spent the last five hours making fun of the Annoying One because he got in trouble. Now, I am getting tired, so I thought I should share with all of you so that you could help me with this.
Woo-woo, Kelsey Ann

It's me, Canyon. I want to personally thank all of you kind doggies who voted for me in the MaPaw Howl-o-Ween photo contest. I found out on Halloween that I won the contest. My picture will be featured on October 31st in the 2008 MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue Calendar. I am so excited. This will be my second calendar appearance, and I even get my own day. Stay tuned for details about when the calendar will be available. The following video is me after I heard the awesome news. Mom said I crushed the competition with 44% of the votes.......woof woof. (sorry, the end is sidways, but mom was trying to get the full effect of my tail)
Ok, enough with the public service announcement. I hate when she makes us do that. This is our blog not hers, but I guess it's ok, as long as it helps us doggies.
Tonight, I leave you with this very RARE photo.....mom was so excited to be able to capture this moment on film.
Here it is!!!!!
Mom cartoonized us...what do all you pups think???
I leave you with one last Kodak moment.....Sky and I are very proud of our little biped....she brought home lots of treats....unfortunately not the doggy-friendly kind....but she gives us lots of doggy treats, so we'll forgive her this time.
