Ladybug cars that wind up and roll across the floor
A ladybug chair and book
A ladybug bug towel (being modeled)
and last but certainly not least, the quilt mom has been trying to finish forever. It just so happens she picked out fabric last year that had bugs and insects on it and the Christmas she is able to finish it the little biped is into ladybugs...
We hope this clears up any misconceptions about the ladybugs that have invaded our house. So far they seem to be harmless, but only time will tell. There have been some dinosaurs running around that might need to be "taken care of" in the near future....but that's a whole other story!
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann
(oh, and I almost forgot...she got ladybug PJs too!)

Mom and dad had gone to bed pretty late on Christmas Eve. The little biped was very excited and didn't want to go to sleep. She finally fell asleep while reading and trying to wait up for Santa Paws.
Look at the gingerbread house Santa Paws brought!I know none of you doggies care what was in all of these packages for the humans, but here's a brief recap: Mom got her new camera (early present a few weeks ago), several CDs, several DVDs; Dad got a new tie, several CDs, several DVDs; the little one got a GeoTrax train set, ladybugs, dolls, a play house, puzzles, books, DVDs, stuffed animals, clothes, and many other presents.
But the most important presents were what we got. Drum roll, please. Several weeks ago, we got new beds which were part of our Christmas presents.
Sky was supposed to get a new one like my new throne, but UPS lost it and mom and dad had to find him one from somewhere else. It's one of those really nice eggcrate foam ones.
Sky and I got new collars (Canyon has a fairly new one so he didn't get a new one):
A Lupine Wolf Song collar for Sky....
A Lupine Ladybug collar for me.....the little biped picked it for me. She loves ladybugs!
We also got treats (Eagle Pack Holistic treats and Wellness Fish and Sweet Potato treats). After we got the all of the presents from Santa Paws, Grandma and Pop (Dad's parents) came over for breakfast. They gave us squeaky toys. Then all of the humans left and went to Dama and Paw-paw's (Mom's mom and step-dad) for lunch. Great-dama sent milkbones home for us. Last night, they went to Nana and Pap's (Mom's dad and step-mom) for dinner. Here's pictures of the squeaky toys from Grandma and Pop and a reindeer rope toy from Santa Paws. The squeakies are a frog, an elephant and a spider. When we squeak them, the tongue or the trunk or the feet flare out like a party toy.What did all of you doggies get from Santa Paws? Hopefully it's not as tragic as Steve's Santa Paws present. I don't think Santa Paws hates us!
Merry Christmas and Woo-woo, Kelsey Ann

We promised video of the house later in the season. Here's a video taken tonight. There have been some changes to the display since the last video. We lost two trees in the wind and ice this month. One of them was a green spiral tree, 8 feet tall; and the other was white mini-lights, 12 feet tall. Dad plans to fix those for next year. We've added the red light on the lamp post and Winnie the Pooh.
Thanks to all of the DWB's who sent cards to us; we've really enjoyed seeing all the pictures.
For those of you who've already been visited by Santa Paws, we hope that he brought something good. For those who haven't, get to bed so that he can come to your house.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!!
From the entire Kapp Pack

It's me, Canyon! I've been having lots of fun playing with my Secret Santa toys.....yes, I claimed all of them as mine. We are so excited for Santa Paws! Mom took this video of me playing with one of the toys (not from mom: notice how Canyon tries to use his front paws to "catch" the toy, it's almost like he thinks he has opposable thumbs, very cute :-P) The talking in the background is my little biped playing a game called "Wormy Apples".

Pee ess: Thanks Khyra for including us in your Twelve Days of Christmas. We are very honored

Mom came home today and told me about something she learned about in school. Yeah, she liked school so much she went back to repeat it. I really don't understand what's wrong with her! School is not that much fun....they make you do things dogs (huskies especially) shouldn't have to do. But seriously, Mom does a good thing. She works with kids with behavior problems, ones with autism mainly, and helps them to make it through school. In an English class she learned about freerice. The website is really cool. It gives you words and you need to decide which other word means the same. If you are correct, free rice donates 20 grains of rice to someone who doesn't have enough to eat. You can try as many words as you like at a time. Go ahead and try it out! Let me know how many grains of rice you donated. It's always nice to do things for other doggies and people during the holidays and all year long!

Mmmmm.....they smell yummy!
Thank Woo, MayaMarie's Mom!!!!
Our other suprise was in the mailbox. Our Christms card from MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue was there. What a suprise when our blogging friend,Prince, from New Zealand was on the front of the card! How cool!!!! He is very handsome. Summer is very lucky to have such a handsome brother.
We are so excited for Christmas! It's so hard waiting, especially when you have a little biped who is SOOOOO excited for Santa Claus (Paws) to come.
Weather Pup-date: Our power has stayed on but it did not warm up enought yet for all of the ice to disappear. It is a bit treacherous going out to go potty....but mom helps me get down the steps so I don't slip and fall. As I get older my back legs aren't what they used to be (mom always says something under her breath about the d*** puppy mills, that's where they think I was before I came into rescue).
Good night and stay warm,
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

We were supposed to get some snow, rain, and sleet mix today. I don't know what happened in the weather forecaster translation (Check Meeshka's blog for her take on that!), but all we got was lots of ICE! This is so not fun. Twice in 1 week. I want SNOW!!!!!! Please Santa bring us SNOW! Here's a slide show with some pictures from today.
We woke up this morning to the little biped being upset because her nightlight was out. We all had to get up at 6:45AM because she was up and wouldn't go back to sleep. Her nightlight was out because we lost our electricity. Mom, Dad and the little biped went to Dama and Paw-Paw's house again today because they wanted to get hot showers and stay warm. (Don't worry Dad came back a few times to check on us). The power was out for about a total of 12 hours. We have strong winds predicted for tonight so hopefully our power will stay on.Send some good vibes for Dad. He has to leave on a business trip tomorrow morning to Mississippi and we want him to get there safely.
We had some pretty snotty creatures hanging around today...
This penguin really needs a tissue...
Yuck! Snotty Snowman
Ha roo roo roo, I couldn't resist those pictures. I thought they were very funny. They better make sure I get the used Penguin tissues!!!!
Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

The humans were gone all day. The mailman came and instead of his normal, just leaving mail at the mailbox, he walked up to the front porch where he left a big box. For several hours, we had to sit in the house and wonder what this package contained. It was really hard to wait for so long, but we did. The Christmas card count is: dogs - 64; people - 12; shared - 1 (from Echo and his people)
When the humans finally got home, we almost forgot about the box because of all the food they had. Apparently they spent the day at dama's and paw-paw's house baking Christmas cookies!Then they went pre-snow grocery stopping followed by a stop at the pizza shop for dinner. There are five LARGE containers of cookies: 1 container of chocolate chip, which will make us sick if we eat them; 1 container of peanut butter, which they won't let us eat; 2 containers of iced sugar cookies, which mom won't let anyone else eat; and 1 container of sand tarts, which dad won't let anyone else eat. They also had a lot of bags from the grocery store and leftover pizza. There was no dog food in the grocery store bags and we didn't get any leftover pizza. We were all wondering when we were going to get some of the good food... and we're still wondering...
Then they opened the box. They called all of us to see what it was. Here's pictures of what we found inside.
Here's Canyon checking out the first bag to come out of the box.
Here I am checking out the second bag, it had my name on it
Sky got a Kong toy
Canyon got a frog that makes froggie noises when he squeeks it
I got a Kong toy too. Mine's a bone shape.
Well, we spent all day wondering what was in the box the mailman brought and we finally found out. Now we're wondering who it came from, so we asked Mom and Dad. They told us that we had been signed up for a Secret Santa exchange with MaPaw. Mom and Dad sent a present from all of us to someone this morning and because they sent one, someone else sent us presents. Thanks, Someone!!! The presents are great. Canyon thinks that they all belong to him, but we'll fix that soon enough.

It's me Canyon. I really didn't appreciate Kelsey's blog yesterday. I try so hard to be good and she's trying to sabotage me!She needs to get over herself and just deal with the fact that I am as well behaved as her! We weren't quite sure if mom was going o go to work this morning since the weather forecast was for freezing rain, sleet and snow. But mom and the little biped left early this morning. Just when we were settling in for our mid-morning naps we heard something outside.
Hmmmm......it sounded like the garage door and mom's car. Look what mom found when she came home...
Mom wasn't too upset about the ornament. It was one of those that came attached to a present that was wrapped at a department store. Mom would have been really upset if Kelsey Ann had gotten this apple.
Kelsey thought she would have enough time to plant the evidence to get me in trouble. Little did she know that mom was coming home early due to the weather.......HA HA HA HA! She was so BUSTED! I'm thinking maybe "Queen" Kelsey needs to go to the crate not me!
Speaking of the weather, I almost forgot, this is what our trees looked like today.
Not quite as dramatic as the Army of Four's storm (with a small "s"), but we do have 2 large branches from our HUGE oak tree laying in the backyard. Otherwise we don't appear to have any other damage. We are hoping the power doesn't go out tonight. Mom is hoping for a two-hour delay for school tomorrow so she can sleep in (yeah right, my little biped doesn't sleep in).
Last but not least, Check out our Moosesicle!

We got a phone call today that mom and dad's camera is fixed. I guess that means it can't have little camera babies or something....ha roo roo....yeah, I know that was really bad, but I couldn't resist. So hopefully mom and dad will take the boys to the biweekly MaPaw Dogtown playdate and they can pick-up the camera on the way home. I can, in turn, get some peace and quiet. I am not thrilled at all about the "annoying one's" free reign of the house. I've been trying to devise a plan to do something really bad and point the blame at him. That should convince mom to take him back to his crate during the day. Let me know if any of you pups have an ideas!

Hello Everydoggy! Our mom got this on one of her email lists and wanted to share with everyone as a holiday reminder......BIPED TISSUE ALERT!

This is what Sky thinks about the new camera!

Tonight, we FINALLY got some snow again! Its only an inch or two, but it sure is fun. When dad and the Little Biped came home from work today, we doggies went out to play in the snow for about 45 minutes. We were out there playing and I kept looking at the door, expecting dad to come out with the camera so he could take a picture of huskies in the snow. Turns out that the focus machiney on the camera isn't working (and hasn't been for several months - sorry for any previously taken pictures that may be blurry).
Dad took it back to the location of purchase (the place with the repair team that wears white shirts and black ties) for repairs. Mom had found the warranty paperwork on the camera the other night (she admitted that she didn't remember that they had gotten it - dad hasn't admitted that, but he probably did too), so they figured that they probably should try to get it repaired now while the warranty was still good. They told him on Monday,when he dropped it off, that they expect to have it done within 12-30 days. Hopefully, it will be done by Christmas so that I will be able to post pictures of our Christmas presents.

Mom and the little biped made Christmas tree ornament gifts.....
And most importantly Dad and mom worked on our Dogs with Blogs Christmas cards. Mom said Dad was extra helpful and addressed almost 100 envelopes!
