Merry Santa Paws Daze to all my friends, both new and old!
Sorry it's been a while since Doodles has updated. With Da dad and everything, I almost don't wanna leave his side when I come in the house. I have been very good about being gentle, even Da dad says so. Da dad is getting better and he is making our foods now, but Da momma is feeding us still. That's okay, as long as Da dad makes my foods, it be fine. Da dad has even play wrestled with me a little. Doodles can't jump on Da dad, so we just play little play wrestle while I lay next to him on the couch. I know that is helping him get his strength back and stuff.
Hey, guess what?? It's now official!! I am an official member of the HULA hoop. Doodles was so excited to get his certificate that I danced the HaPpY hUsKy DaNcE!!!! WOOOWOOOOWOOO!!!
In other news, Da sister came last night with Sadie. Da momma says maybe tomorrow I can play with Sadie. See, because of Shonee, and our big fight, I don't always trust other dogs in person and sometimes I wants to fight them. Since Da dad isn't well yet, Da momma and Da sister don't want us to fight -- so Doodles has to be nice and make sure Whiskey doesn't play too rough with Sadie. You know labs aren't like us Huskies and they can break pretty easy and stuff.
So any ways, Da sister came and then she got sick and was up doing the horka thing almost all night. She horka'd today too, but she seems better now. Doodles wonders what makes hoomans horka. Do they eat grass too?? Or maybe bark or something??
In our house we have the indoor tree up. Doodles thinks he remembers that they call this the Christmas tree. I just know they won't let me pee on it and when I try to see who the presents are for, I get yelled at. But the indoor tree is up, it sure looks pretty, and that can only mean one thing --- SANTA PAWS IS COMING!!!!
Doodles can't wait for Santa Paws Daze and his presents. I want lots of cookies and toys and stuff. I hope Santa Paws brings them to me, cuz I been a really good boy.
Oh, I almost forgots -- we had ICE!! See here in Calyfornia, it don't ever snow. I know that makes Doodles sad too. But, we get ices sometimes and it iced really good for a whole week. So Whiskey and I pretended it was snows and we rolled in it and played in it and it felt sooooo very good. It's warmer now, because it's supposed to rain. I don't mind the rain, cuz that means mud. We have straw in our pen to help contain the mud and it works too -- but when Da momma put the straw out she made sure to leave us an area where it will get muddy. Doodles has to have mud, you know?!!!
I haven't seen many friends -- a yipper came by the other day -- but Shonee scared him off before we could make friends. I did have a gopher friend, until Whiskey played too hard with him and he had to have a funeral. Da momma made Da dad come out and remove his body for the funeral. Doodles didn't get to go and neither did Whiskey. I told Whiskey not to play so rough with him, but she wouldn't listen and he died. I felt bad for Mr. Gopher, but I hope they had a nice funeral for him.
Da momma made special Santa Paws Daze hooman cookies and Doodles got a whole one to his self. Sometimes Da momma is so cool like that. No little bites for Doodles!! The whole cookie!!! It was yummy, but it gave me the urps so Da momma said I couldn't have any more.
Well better get back to the couch and make sure Da dad is okay!
Everyone have a great Santa Paws Daze and I hope you all get lots and lots of presents and cookies!!

Da dad is getting better! Slowly. Too slowly for Doodles. I tried last night to get him to play bitey with me and he said no, then I tried to get him to wrestle with me and Da momma yelled at me! Doodles was just trying to make Da dad feel betters. I heard Da momma tell him to make our soup today -- I sure hope he does it, cuz no one like Da momma's soups.
Outside of trying to play with Da dad, I been giving him lots and lots of kisses and sitting as close to him as he will let me. See he has a big boo-boo on his chest and it really looks like it hurts a lot, so he doesn't let me get on his lap or anything -- but I been trying. Da momma tolds me that I have to be gentle, so I been gentle. How long til I get my real Da dad back??
In other news, SadieMae came to visit, but I didn't gets to play with her. Da momma said her and Da sister were too busy taking care of Da dad to watch us. So SadieMae gots to stay in the back pen and in the house and Doodles had to stay outside. It was okay, cuz Da dad and Da momma and Da sister comed to visit me and stuff.
We gots turkey on Turkey Days. It was yummy. Then Da momma made us a soup with the turkey -- it was alright. Da dad makes it better.
SadieMae and Da sister left and then we gots to come in the house. That was good, cuz I needed to be with Da dad and give him kisses and stuff.
It's been pretty cool here at night. Down into the 20's even. Doodles likes it and thinks it's just right for moon bathing. Da momma gots all worried about how cold it was at night and got us new fluffs for our houses. I kicked it outta my outside house, it makes it too hot in there for Doodles.
Well that's it for now, maybe more later. I'm gonna try to go visit some blogs this afternoon, but we'll see if Da momma steal the computer back!!

Da Dad is HOME!!!!!!! He is walking pretty funny and slow and he smells really funny -- but he's home!! He even came outside and visited Doodles!!
Da momma says no dogs in the house for a couple more days, cuz she's afraid that we would knock him down and Doodles understands that -- we huskies are not doglets and we have lots of energy and stuff. Doodles doesn't wanna hurt Da dad by making him fall or anything, so I can wait to come in. Da dad is HOME!!!!!
Da momma says that Da dad has to walk lots and lots, so every time he walks he comes to my pen and visits with me -- I make sure to give him lots of kisses and woo to him, telling him how much I love him and missed him. I'm sure it's helping him feel better.
Da momma says maybe tomorrow Whiskey and Doodles can come in for a little while and visit. I hope so. Doodles wants to snuggles next to Da dad and kiss him all better. Da momma says Doodles has to be gentle. Doodles can do that!!
Tomorrow Sadie Mae is coming -- or tonight -- Doodles forgets. That will be fun. Da sister came on the huskymobile in the sky, so she didn't bring Sadie Mae with her, Auntie Jen is gonna
drive Sadie Mae here.
Sister has been making the foods and they are better than Da momma's. Not as good as Da dad, but better then Da momma. Tomorrow we gets TURKEY cuz it's Turkey day!!! Da sister promised!!
Better go -- before I gets caught in the computer room!!

Thank you to everyhusky, everydoglet and everydog for the woo's and prayers for my Da dad. Da dad is still in the hospital. Da momma told me that he got monia and was really sick after the operation. Doodles doesn't know what monia is, but it doesn't sound too good. Da momma says Da dad is getting better slowly. Doodles hopes so, cuz Da momma makes icky foods for me.
In other news -- Da sister is here!!!! Da sister is here!!! DoInG tHe HaPpY hUsKy DaNcE!!!! Doodles loves Da sister!!!! Da sister comed to help Da momma take care of the Da dad, so that must mean he's coming home soon??? Doodles misses Da dad.
I just heard Da momma tell Da sister to make our breakfast foods -- Doodles bets she does better then Da momma!!!
Wednesday, November 15, 2006
Thought I would write just a quick post and let all my friends know that Da dad had his operation today. Da momma and Da dad left very early this morning and Da momma came home this afternoon. She says the operation went good and Da dad is see you. Doodles knows that makes no sense, but honest that's what Da momma says. Da momma says if all goes well, Da dad will be home in a few days -- so, everyhusky, everydoglet, everydog, please keep saying good Woos for Da dad and keep him in your thoughts. Doodles wants his Da dad to come home soon.
PS -- Da momma is back to feeding us and it's just not right.

Da momma is gonna help me with this post, with my spelling and 'plaining stuff cuz you know friends, that Doodles isn't that good at that kind of thing.
This picture is of me and my Da dad with Tundra. Da dad is loving on Doodles.
Sorry I haven't posted before now, but things have happened really quick at our house and Da dad and Da momma have been gone a lot. That means Doodles and Whiskey had to stay outside and I couldn't get to the computer.
It seems that my Da dad is not well. And Da momma and him have been having to go to lots of doctors -- Da momma told me they are not all nice like Doctor Brenda. Now they tell me that Da dad has to have a big operation, not like when Doodles was broken and got fixed, but a really big operation on his heart. Doodles is gonna let Da momma tell you now.

We gots our pumpkins yesterday. Doodles didn't think we'd get pumpkins this year, cuz Da momma said she couldn't find any our size. So yesterday she gots on the phone and called and called and then went bye-bye in the car and when she came home she had our PUMPKINS!
Here I am enjoying the first bites on my pumpkin.

Hey everyhusky, it's almost winter!! Doodles can tell this because it's cooler outside and I am not panting like a panting bear or something. Of course we don't get that snow stuff, only rain and mud, but I can smell the rain on the horizon!! Doodles is very happy! Da dad should be packing up our swimming pools any days now and we should be getting in our straw!
Yes, we gets straw for our pens and our outside houses. Doodles loves it when the straw comes. It comes in big bales and I gets to help Da momma and Da dad distribute it around my pen and in my house. The hoomans say that the straws keeps all the mud from coming into their house, and I guess it does, but it's way fun to play in and hide things in and it smells so good, I just have to rub my whole body in it!! I can't wait for the straws to come!!
In other news, Da sister went home, but not before she gave me more sammich. This sammich wasn't pig butt, it was cowdog butt. I hoped it wasn't one of my cowdog friends that are missing. Da momma says they went north for the winter, but I think she's lying, because I watch the birds and stuff and everything goes south for the winter.
We had a near flood in the hooman house and I didn't do it!! See in the kitchen they have this bucket where the faucet is and it drains out somewheres -- I don't know where that water goes -- anyway, one day Da dad was washing the dishes in the kitchen bucket (I know, I could've washed them, but they won't let me) and the bucket overflowed. Da dad said a lot of bad words about clog and stopped up and stuff. So he took everything out of that cupboard under the hooman bucket and I gots to help him fix where the water goes. I tried to hold the portable light thing, but he thought I was stealing it and took it away. I was just trying to help. Then I thought I would hand him his toys -- except he calls them tools, but again, he thought I was stealing them. He made me go outside and locked me and Whiskey out there, so we wouldn't continue helping him. He said he didn't need our kind of help. I wonder who helped him then??
Anyway Da dad finally got the water to go wherever it goes and Da momma was much happier.
Whiskey got her first gopher. He died when she tried to play with him. I tried to tell her that you have to be gentle or they die too quick, but she didn't listen. She then laid him out for Da momma to find -- again, I told her bad idea, because Da momma would take it away for the funeral and we wouldn't get to go. Sure enough, Da momma and Da dad took the gopher and had the funeral without us.
Well better run -- now that we can run, cuz it's not a million degrees out there!!

Dusty Doodles reporting here!
Well, the hat Doodles tried so hard to hang on to finally came up. That's right, I frows up. But I buried my hat, except that Whiskey found it and was parading around the yard with it, so Da momma stole it from us. She ruined all the fun. Oh well, at least I kept her on poop detail for a few days. I always have to woowoo to myself when she looks in all my poop with her funny mittens on her paws and stuff. Da momma is so weird.
In other news, Doodles caught a gopher today. See I saw him poke his head out of his hole in my pen and so I waited and waited and waited and waited and when he did it again, I grabbed him and asked him if he wanted to play. I don't think he did, cuz he died. I didn't mean to kill him, honest!! Doodles just didn't know he was so fragile. Da dad came and got him -- he saw me still trying to play with him by throwing him in the air and stuff. So Da dad took him away for his funeral. I didn't get to go and I'm thinking he is buring behind the house some wheres.
Last night my friend, Yipper came looking for me, but I was doing the sleepy in the house. I knew he was out there cuz I could hear him, and I kept waking up Da momma to let me out, but she kept telling me to go to sleepy. Da dad finally gots up and let me out and I pretended I had to pee -- but really I was looking for Yipper. When I woo'd to him, Da dad made me come in the house again. Da momma and Da dad said I kept them awake all night -- well if they would've let me out to play with Yipper, they could've slept. Da momma told Da dad that Yipper (she calls him a coyote) was in the field next to our house when she went to work. They think he's coming in too close and are gonna talk to some Fishmanhooman about what to do. Doodles doesn't understand what the Fishmanhooman knows about Yipper, but I hope he doesn't do anything bad to my friend. I know Da momma would never hurt him, cuz she loves all the critters and especially those that are my friends, but I just don't know about this Fishmanhooman person.
Oh! I heard a rumor and I don't believe it at all. Da dad took my friend, Omani to Dr. Brenda. He wasn't sick or nothing, he just needed his toes cut and Da dad and Da momma are afraid to do that, cuz my friend, Omani doesn't like his feets touched. So he went to Dr. Brenda. Da dad told Da momma that my friend, Omani screamed like a girl when Stacy cut his toes. You know, I don't like my toes cut either -- but it doesn't hurt -- so I really don't think my friend, Omani screamed like a girl. I asked him and he wouldn't tell me.
Da momma is doing that lots of that workie thing again. Something about harvest and rice. I know she works where there is rice, cuz I always smell it on her and it smells pretty good. I don't know what harvest is, but she says that if they don't get the rice in before the rain, then Doodles won't have no rice for his chicken. That would be bad. So I guess if Da momma has to workie lots to get the rice for my chicken it would be okay, but I don't like it much, cuz when she's not here, the compooter room door is shut and I can't get in here to do my blog stuff. In my next life, I'm gonna ask doG for opposable thumbs.
I almost forgot! Yesterday Whiskey and I were trying to dress up for Halloweenie cuz we heard it was coming. We rolled in the sticky stuff that the tree gives off and then rolled in the dirt and grass. We figured we could go treating as tumbleweeds. Da momma wrecked that idea too. When she saw us, she gave us BATHS! AND it was baths with horrible smelling soapy stuff. It was awful. Just awful. I don't know what to do with that Da momma. Steals my hat, steals my gopher, denies me my friends and then gives me a bath. I have to plan something downright evil.

Dusty Doodles reporting!
Doodles has not given up that hat yet and Da momma is busy doing poopie detail. She has to go out there and exam all my poop. Is that stoopid or what?? She must really want that hat back or something!
In other news -- there is CONSTRUCTION going on in my pen! That can only mean one thing -- more play things!!! Da dad was out there yesterday after my birfday celebration and he was building something on the back of my house. Whiskey and Doodles had to go out to the pen this morning and it was this box thing without a top. Pretty tall. Da momma and Da dad went somewheres, so Doodles gots to check it out really good and I peed on it for good measure. But we can't be out there when Da dad is constructing cuz he doesn't like to share his special toys -- Da momma calls them tools. Doodles heard Da momma and Da dad talking about a bedroom for my house and about taking down the playcenter -- cuz Da momma thinks it's getting dangerous -- another stoopid hooman thought. The playcenter is this:
Last year, Da dad added a tunnel to it, but Doodles can't find the pictures of that. Anyways, Da momma is thinking it's dangerous cuz it's old and Whiskey and I have kinda chewed it in places. She says she's afraid we are going fall through it now and break our legs -- is that stoopid or what?? We know where we chewed it and we know how to play king of the mountain and stuff. Anyways I heard Da momma tell Da dad to fix it and leave the tunnel and take away the stairs and the ramp and leave it open, like another veranda. I'm not sure I will like it. Doodles stands on the top to talk to the cowdogs and what happens if Da dad forgets the top?? Plus we won't have a secret hidie spot inside anymore where we can hide our things from Da momma.
But I might like a bedroom for my house. I'll take a picture when Da dad gets done constructing. Some of you might ask why I have a house outside, when I have a house inside. Well, see it's like this -- mean old ShoneeWitch has to have time in the house too. So her pack, that includes my friend, Omani, gets to come in the hoomans house every other night for sleepy time. Doodles and Whiskey has to stay out in the pen on those nights. So we has a special house that Da dad build for us. ShoneeWitch and my friend, Omani and Tundra all have houses in their pen too -- for the nights that Whiskey and Doodles gets to sleepy in the hooman house. That might sound horrible for some of yous, but really it's lots of fun to stay outside all night. At night time is when we have the best visitors -- like stinkycats, and cooncats and yippers (Da momma calls then coyoters). If Doodles didn't stay out every other night then I wouldn't have them animules as friends. So it's pretty cool.
Better go and supervise Da dad.

This is my new toy. Except now she doesn't have that hat. See that hat?? Doodles ates it. Well what happed is that I took it off the witch cuz I was trying to find where that squeeker thing was and Da momma saw me, so to keep Da momma from taking the hat, I just ate it. Whole. Now Da momma is really worried. She tried to make me frows up, she used a couple of different icky tasting stuffs, but I ain't given that hat back -- cuz I knows what will happen to it. I wants to keep it.
This is Whiskey stealing my toy. Don't worry, Da momma gots me a back up one, so I could have one and Whiskey could haves one. Da momma stole the hat off of the other one after I ate the first hat. She won't give it back either. I think I'm gonna wait until Da momma is watching the talking box later and then frows up in her lap. Doodles has done that before and she makes all kinds of girl noises. It was funny!! And since today is International Pain in the Butt Day, that will be what I do.
So, that was my Birfday. Doodles also gots a BIG bag of jerky. But Da momma is being stoopid and won't let me have any more until after I frows up. She did however gives me bread and BUTTER after I ate the hat -- seems someone told her to do that, I think it was Meeshka's hooman. Thank You Meeshka's hooman -- that butter was good, the bread was okay -- but better with the BUTTER.
Well better go guard my hatless witch.

Yesterday was my birfdays! Now I am 4 hooman years old. Da momma says we are celebrating my birfsday today!!! Yesterday I gots special foods, cuz of my birfdays. For breakfast we gots scrammy eggs with cheese and hot doggies. Last night we gots chickie with special wild rice and greenie beans. Doodles doesn't know what's we getting today, but I bet it's good, cuz Da momma says today is the celebrating day. We couldn't really celebrates yesterday cuz Da momma had to do that workie thing. I gets presents too and I bets I gets BUTTER!!! Da momma tolds me I am getting a cake too!! Da best part of yesterday was that Da momma's hip is all better!!! See Doodles told you I didn't think it was arfritis, cuz I woo'd it and it wouldn't go away. Well, Da momma wents to another doctor, I don't think it was my doctor, but maybe. Anyways, the doctor tolds Da momma that it was grrsitis. And he gave her a special shot into her hip. And now the grrsitis is all gone. WOOOWOOOO!!!
In other news, Da brother called for my birfsdays. He wants me to change my blog name to Doc's Dusty Doodles. See everyhooman calls him Doc cuz he fixes peepol in the Navy and he has always said that he was my hooman and I was his Doodles. Doodles is gonna think about this, cuz I do love my Da brother, but I jsut don't know.
Da sister called for Doodles birfdays too! And she says that the kiddles have written me and I will get the letters with the next mailpeepol day. I don't know when that is -- is it today or not?? Our mailpeepollady is nice and all, but she doesn't seem to come everyday. Da momma says it's cuz she's stoopid, but sometimes we go many days without her coming. That's when Da momma calls the main mailpeepol and tells them. That mailpeepol service is Stoopid and Doodles thinks the mail would be more consistent if us huskies delivered it. It might have alittle spit on it, cuz we don't have thumbs, but Doodles knows we would deliver it everyday.
Over at Meeshka's place, she been catching grubs. Doodles has never found those here and I am quite jealous cuz they sound really yummy. I been digging a few more holes just to make sure we don't have them, but all I find is earthworms and they taste like dirt, so I knows it's not the grubs that Meeshka is describing. Why is it some huskies have all the stuff that Doodles wants?? Grubs, snow, sleds, stay at home Da mommas. The list goes on. It makes no sense to Doodles. We should all have the same things cuz we are huskies.
What's that Doodles hears?? Da dad is making breakfast -- gotta run!! I'll write later and tell you about my birfdays presents and CAKE!!

Dusty Doodles reporting here!
Doodles is enjoying the fall weather and hasn't been inside enough to post much, he apologizes to everyhusky and everydog and doglet. It's nice and cool out in the evenings and Doodles is loving it!! Whiskey and I play and play and play. We've even gotten Da momma to play with us a couple of times. She plays a mean game of chase. I think that means her hips are better. Doodles still thinks she has dysplasia and not arfritis. If it was arfritis, don't you think that my sneaking up and woo-ing at Da momma's hip would have made it go away?? Me, too. That's why Doodles thinks she has dysplasia and she needs to go to my doctor to get a bionic hip. Then she could play more with me and Whiskey. Doodles loves to chase Da momma!
Hey! You know what I figured out?? I figured out why hoomans call crickets - 'crickets'. It's because when you eats them, they go - crick - et in your mouths. I kinda like the sound of that so, I beens eating a lots of them. They make me frows up if I eat too many so I try to pace myself. Da momma says we must be in for a bad winter cuz we have so many crickets. Doodles wonders if a bad winter means snow?? Doodles would love for it to snow, but we never get snows.
Something interesting happened last night. Da momma and Da dad went out to gets foods and while they were gone a poleecepersons car broke right in front of our property, in fact it was right in front of Doodles' and Whiskey's pen! Doodles watched the poleeceperson get outta his car and look in the mouth of the car. I don't think he figured out what was wrong with it, because it wouldn't start for him or nothing. Doodles watched him closely, in case he had cookies in his car or maybe he might of needed a new poleecedog, but he didn't. He did however, talk to Doodles and Whiskey and he says that we are beeutiful. Da momma and Da dad came home with the foods and they went and talked to him to see if there was a bad guy or something. That's when he tolds them that his car broke and he was waiting for the toe truck. Da momma says it's pretty unusual for a poleecepersons car to break. The toe truck came and lifted the poleececar up and they went away. Doodles woo'd him good-bye.
Today Da momma and Da dad left us for a while and they said they went fishing. They didn't bring us any fishes. Doodles likes it when Da momma gets those little fishes and puts them in our swimming pool. I gets to catch them and they are yummy, but they kinda tickle going down my throats. Anyway, Da momma says that next time her and Da dad goes fishing, DUSTY DOODLES GETS TO GO TOO!!! I think that means Whiskey has to go because she's too scared to stay here without me, but that would be okay. Doodles will teach Whiskey how to catch those fishes and water birds. Then we could catch lots of fishes and stuff and Doodles wouldn't have to wait for Da momma to get home with the fishes, that she never catches, but has to buy.
Oops, I head Da dad getting our plates ready for dinner....gots to go now!!
Monday, September 04, 2006
I've not posted because there was simply not enough to post about and now Doodles is finding he has quite a bit to say.
First of all Doodles and all his family, both furred and skinned were sorry to hear on the talking box about the loss of a wonderful conservationist and a great person. We all woo in sorrow for Steve Irwin and his family. May he find many animals that need his attention at the Bridge. Doodles wonders if Opy or Chuckie will be able to go to his funeral?? If so, Doodles hopes they will give him an appropriate farewell in Husky song.
News here in California is slow, although a quailbird did walk into my mouths earlier in the week. Doodles tolds you it would happen and sure enough it did. I was laying out under my veranda and here he comed. When he gots close enough, Doodles just opened my mouths and he walked right in. All Da momma and Da dad found were a few feathers, they are hard to swallow and his feets. Doodles doesn't like quailbird feets. I do have to tell you he was quite yummy in my tummy.
I been thinking, I been doing alots of thinking this week. Doodles been practicing for Meeshka's International Lazy Day and I thinks it should be whole week. One day just isn't long enough to laze around and think of these things. It took me all week to thinks of this.
Doodles hasn't heard from Da sister's little kiddles yet. But Da momma tolds me that they gots my presents and really liked them and they are supposed to be writing back to me. Doodles hopes he gets their letters soon cuz I'm anxious to start helping with their homeworks and stuff.
Well that's all Doodles has to say this time...I'll try to read everyone's blog and catch up with you all, but first I need another nap! Is it Dog Days of Summer yet?? Is that why Doodles is so sleepy??

Dusty Doodles reporting here!
Sorry it's been all week since my last post. Doodles has been spending time making that arfritis go away from Da momma's hip and I think my efforts have paid off. Da momma hasn't exactly played with Doodles or Whiskey yet, but she says that she feels better. So Doodles is thinking maybe today she will play a good game of chase with us.
Doodles hasn't heard from Da sister's kiddles yet and I sure hope Meeshka doesn't ban them fore they can write me back. Da sister says not to worry and to be patient. Doodles doesn't like to be patient.
Doodles bets everyhusky and everydog is wondering why there is a picture of a snake on my blog. Well, Doodles will tell you!!
The other day Da momma was at work and then Da dad left. They were gone a long time and were even late with dinner. Da momma later told Doodles that she had to go back to the doctors and Da dad met her there. Anyway, whiles Whiskey and I were waiting for them to get home a huge snake slithered into our yard. Whiskey was terrified of him and ran to the top of our playcenter. Doodles joined her there to try to make her calm down and do something about that big old snake. He was longer then Doodles and ugly and fat as my leg. Whiskey refused to come down off of the playcenter -- she's such a wimp. And the snake meanwhiles was getting into our pool!! Whiskey was shrieking and Doodles was sure she was gonna shriek herself into bringing the policepeopols or something. Doodles would have been embarrassed to have the policepeepols come and find us both on the top of our playcenter yelling our husky heads off.
So, Doodles decided I had to get that snake outta our pen. The other dogs, Shonee and Tundra were laughing at me -- but my friend Omani, he was giving me encouragement and telling me hows to proceed. So Doodles wents up to the snake and I asked him nicely to leave. Doodles even gave him a little nudge....just like my friend, Omani said to. That snake had the nerve to wrap his slimmy body around my leg!!! That made Doodles mad! Doodles went after that snake and we wrestled a bit. He would wrap hisself around my legs and I would grab him and throw him. We did this for a long time -- in fact in the process Da momma and Da dad came home and Doodles didn't even notice. It felt like Doodles was in the battle for his very life!
Da dad came right out to my pen and grabbed the snake and got him off of me and took him out to Da momma. Da momma says he was a gopher snake and he was the biggest one she ever saw. She says he was over 6 ft long and as big around as my leg. Da momma says Doodles was very brave for fighting the snake. She said the snake wouldn't hurt us, but Doodles doesn't believe that cuz he had me in body hold when Da dad came in. I was beginning to feel like one of those wrestler peepol on the talking box! Da momma said that the snake was almost dead -- so she had Da dad put him out of his misery. Doodles doesn't know how Da dad did that cuz he took him behind the house and Doodles guesses they had the funeral back there to. Doodles didn't go. Doodles gots extra cookies. I had to share them with Whiskey even though alls she did was stand there and yell!
Doodles don't like snakes and I hope I never sees another one. So that's why there's a snake on my blog today!
Doodles is gonna try to visit everyhusky and everydog's blog today -- but we'll see how Da momma feels firsts.

Dusty Doodles reporting here with exciting news!
Doodles is gonna be helping Da sister teach them little kiddles in the school!
See my Da brother is in something called the Navy, they call him Doc. Da momma says he's not a real doctor, but he is a medik and he helps keep the mareens and armees peepols from dying in the wars. Doodles knows when Meeshka rules the world, she won't let the peepols have wars, cuz wars are stoopid. Anyways Doodles misses his Da brother. Da sister teaches the kiddles at a 'pecial school for the armees kiddles. That's all that goes to that school is the armee kiddles. Doodles likes kiddles cuz they are just the right size to kiss and stuff.
Doodles convinced Da momma and Da dad to go to Wally's and buy lots of school stuff to send to the kiddles in Da sister's classroom. Today I gots to help pack it all up and tomorrow Da dad is taking it to the mailpeepol. In the box are school stuffs, pens and pencils and papers and rasers and stuff. Doodles gots to put a 'pecial card in each bag with a little woo on it for the kiddle. It was lots of funs. Now the mailpeepols will take the packages from Da dad and take them to Da sister and she will give them to the kiddles, along with a 'pecial letter Doodles wrotes to them. Doodles hopes the kiddles will writes him back and then when they do, I can help them with their homeworks and stuff. You know Doodles is pretty smart. Da momma has a sign on her car that says Doodles is smarter then an honorary student. That's pretty smart. Da sister is also gonna send me some lessons to help her with. Da sister wants me to write what I knows about stuff and everythings. Doodles is so excited I can't wait!!
Da brother says its important for all of us to help support the trroops and since Doodles don't know them, exept for the ones Da brother brings home, I figures Doodles should help the kiddles. Most all the kiddles at this 'pecial school where Da sister teaches have either their momma or their daddy off in the wars. Doodles knows that they miss their hoomans a lot, cuz Doodles misses his Da brother. Doodles wants them kiddles to know that someone is membering them and says WOO to them and helps them to do good in school.
I'll let you all know when I get my first assinment from Da sister. Maybe somes of you can help!
Oh and about Jack. Doodles woos he won't eat Jack. I just want to get up close to him and sniff him really good and maybe take a little lick or something.
PS -- The firepeepols gots the fire out, but the firebug's still on the loose. I been eatin all the bugs I see, but Da momma says that won't help. I just don't get it.

Sorry it's been a while since I posted. Doodles been busy making friends!
This is Jack. He's Doodles' new friend. Isn'the an interesting looking dog?? He says he's a rabbitdog and I can call him Jack. Doodles has seen some of his relatives, but I've never met them before a couple of days ago.
See, a couple of days ago, Jack walked right up to my pen and Doodles watched him closely. The next day, Jack came back and came right up to the fence again. Doodles just knew he wanted to be friends. So I went up to the fence real slow like, I didn't want to scare him away or anything. Slowly Doodles sniffed him and he sniffed Doodles back. Doodles woo'd at him and he JUMPED! But Jack didn't run off or anything!
Since then, Jack has been coming to visit almost every night. He comes right up to the fence and we say hello and then he JUMPS up and down my fence line and Doodles tries to chase him. Jack's really quick though and he can JUMP a long ways. Last night Doodles ran along the fence and Jack chased me. Doodles wishes Da momma or Da dad would let Jack in my pen, but just like the stoopid hoomans they are, they say that it's not wise. Jack and Doodles calls their new game "Jack Tag". Whiskey don't play it with Jack. Doodles thinks Whiskey is afraid of Jack cuz she won't come and sniff him and say hello or anything. Doodles likes his new friend.
In other news...Da momma's hips are still hurting her and as much as Doodles tries to make them all better, it's just not working. She went to the hooman doctor and he gave her some pills. Doodles hopes that makes Da momma all better soon, so she will play chase with me and Whiskey. If those hooman doctor pills don't work, Doodles is gonna tell Da momma she needs to go to Doodles' doctor, Brenda. Doodles knows Dr. Brenda would fix Da momma right up, cuz she's good like that.
Whiskey gots Doodles in trouble the other morning. See, we are not allowed to play husky games in the house and Whiskey keeps forgetting. So she started it and Doodles was trying to tell her to knock it off. Well, Da momma caughts us and yelled at Doodles. I didn't think that was too fair and Doodles yelled back at her. She tolds me not back talk her or Doodles would go to time out. Doodles doesn't like time out cuz that means I have to go to the crate in the sleepy room all by myself. Doodles doesn't like to be by hisself.
We gots another firebug this year. See, firebugs come and start fires. Fires are really scary. This firebug started a fire in the hills behind us. It's not real close to our house yet and Doodles hopes those firehoomans can put it out quick. We live in fire country as Da momma calls it. We have lots of wildfires, sometimes the light rods from the sky start the fires, sometimes peepols start the fires and sometimes Doodles hears the talking box say it's firebugs. The talking box say it's a pretty big fire. Doodles tried last year to find that firebug so I could eats him up, but I couldn't find him. Doodles is gonna start looking again for him. Doodles figures if I eats him, he can't start no fires in my tummy and that would keep our house and neighborhood safe and stuff.
Well Doodles better go and head outside, it's almost time for Jack to come and play!

I was tagged by IndyPindy.
Here's how this kinda tag is played:
The player of this game starts with "5 weird things/habits about yourself." Then you tag 5 friends and list their names. The furries who get tagged need to write on their blogs about their 5 weird things/habits, as well as state this rule clearly, then tag 5 more victims. Don't forget to leave your victim a comment that says "you're tagged!" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.
1. Doodles loves foods, all foods. Doodles knows how to eat artichokes (but they must have mayonaise) and I even love lettuce.
2. Doodles woos when Da momma asks me "Does Dusty have woo's in him" or "You got something to say". It's my cue to woo away and sometimes I have lots and lots to say.
3. Doodles eats olives. We live in an olive orchard and have lots of trees. Da momma says the trees are too old for harvesting so we don't have that done. But the olives still fall to the ground and I eats them. They have to be just the right ripeness and I can become very possessive of my olives.
4. Doodles has to have dessert after every meal. Dessert is 3 cookies. If I don't eat my dessert I will bug the hoomans, including using the claw like Meeshka. Dessert is part of my meals. The most important part.
5. In real life Doodles doesn't like little dogs because once when we were on vacation, I was minding my own business on a trail and a little dauchie came and attacked me, biting my leg and made me need to see the doctor about it. Da momma kept me from killing the little dog, who wasn't on a leash, but ever since I see all little dogs as ankle biters and want them gone. Prior to that I was pretty gentle with little guys. But I love my internet doglet friends -- I would never try to hurt them because Doodles knows they wouldn't hurt me.

Dusty Doodles gave me his secret password and told me I should post a few words in his blog. I've never done this before, so if I make a mistake, please forgive me.
I want to thank all of Dusty's blog friends for asking about me and keeping their paws crossed for me in regards to my incident with the Stinkycat.
It was very late at night when I saw stinky. Now, you have to understand, there are no other animals allowed in my pen -- not ever. I am not a meanie (like Miss Shonee) but there are some things I just cannot tolerate. It is my job to alert the humans if anyone comes to our gate or if there are strange things outside. I take my job very seriously. My human family, as well as my canine family depend on me.
So anyway, I saw old Stinky and I alert barked, but no one paid attention. I am sure the humans were asleep and Dusty was in the house that night with Whiskey. Miss Shonee and TunMan were dead asleep -- you know they are old, right??
I took it upon myself to defend my family from the likes of Stinky. When I approached Stinky and asked him to leave nicely, he turned around and sprayed me right between the eyes with his evil smell. It hurt my eyes really bad, but it also made me mad. So I went after him and my niceness was gone. Stinky ended up having to attend a funeral, and it was his own. I am not sorry about that. The rules are the rules. I most certainly understand a Stinkycat or someone else accidently making their way into my pen, but when I ask you to leave nicely, you better do it -- or there will be consequences. That's the way it is.
Even though Miss Shonee and TunMan didn't get close to Stinky, they still had to go to Doctor Brenda's with me. I didn't know that Stinkycat's could carry rabies and not that it would have mattered anyway. I would easily lay down my life for those in my family. It's just the way I am.
I was up to date on my rabies vaccination and Stacy, our nurse, gave me another one, just to be safe. She also put some drops in my eyes that helped the sting go away. I had 'red eye' for a day or so, but they feel much better now.
We won't know for sure about the rabies unless/until I come down with it. Dr. Brenda thinks I should be safe from it, and I was last time we had a StinkyCat that came into the yard. If I show no symptoms in 60 days, they will assume that I am okay -- although my human says that in rare cases symptoms can appear 6 months later. I know it is a fatal disease and although I'd rather not die, I also know that if I do contract rabies, I have lived a good life and there isn't anything I would have changed -- well except for my friend, Dusty, having to live in a different pen. My humans love me, they have taken good care of me since I came here as a rescue at 10 weeks of age. I am now almost 6 years old.
Thank you all for your words of encouragement to Dusty. He's been pretty upset about the whole thing. And again, thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.
If Dusty allows it, I will post again sometime.
Always on guard,
Doodles doesn't understand how peepol can still allow us huskies, doggles and doglets to make puppies, when there are millions of us dying in the doggy jails. Doodles knows that some puppies have to be made, but Doodles thinks that those puppies should be the very best that can be made. The hoomans that own the mom and dad dogs should not just allow them to make puppies, but do everything in their power to make sure those puppies are as perfect and healthy as can be.
It makes Doodles really mad when I see meanie Shonee getting special attention. She gets special attention because she's sick all the time. Meanie Shonee is sick all the time because her dog mom and dad weren't checked for diseases before they made her. The peepol that owned her dog mom and dad were what Da momma calls backyardbreeders. They sound evil and Doodles doesn't like them. So because they were stoopid and allowed meanie Shonee's dog mom and dad to make her and didn't make sure they were healthy and disease free, now Doodles has to deal with meanie Shonee and her getting all the special attention from Da momma and Da dad for being sickly. See, that is pretty stoopid, huh?? Just another way that hoomans are stoopid. doG, let me count the ways!!
Doodles has been researching what us huskies need to do before we make puppies. Other doggles and doglet breeds may need to do different things. For huskies, we need special pictures, called xrays, to check out hips to make sure they are okay. We don't need no crippled puppies that need wheeliechairs to get around or any more that need bionic hips. We also need blood taken outta our arm -- just a little bit -- to check for thyroid problems. Thyroid problems can make us too fat or too skinny and can even make us meanies. We also need our eyes checked. Doodles doesn't mean more peepol looking at our eyes and telling us how buuuteeeful they are. We know they are pretty good looking eyes, but because they are so pretty, they can get evil things in thier call catracks and they can make us blind. If we had a bunch of blind huskies, we might need more Labs to be seeing-eye-dogs for them. No more Labs!! (even though some of Doodles' bestest friends are Labs!!) There are other things that we need too, before we make puppies. We need to be checked to make sure we don't have sex diseases. Not just huskies can get those -- ALL doggles, and doglets can get them. And one more thing -- all doggles, doglets and huskies need to be the very best their breed has to offer and that needs to be confirmed, not by just your momma and your daddy, but by other peepols that don't know you and who don't live with you. Sometimes you will prove that you are the very best in shows or races or agility or stuff. Doodles knows all my friends are the best, they are the bestest friends that a husky could ever have -- but that doesn't mean you are the bestest to make puppies. It doesn't matter if you never have puppies, Doodles will love you all the same!! Woowoo!!
Doodles loves puppies and I don't want any more puppies going to the Bridge because they don't have homes and doG knows we don't need any more dogs here at our house. So unless your house can keep all the puppies that you make, please don't make any -- unless like I said, you've had all your tests and you are the best their is to make puppies.

Thought I'd give you all an update on the stinky cat situation. Da dad packed up the three pack and took them to the doctors. My friend, Omani, says that they weren't allowed into the building cuz they stunk. So the Stacy lady, who is our very favorite nursie came out to the truck and gived everyone shots and special nose drops. My friend, Omani, says that the nose drops were the regular ones that we get every year for the cough disease. My friend, Omani says he gots all upset because he wanted to go into the building and get the doctors cat and Stacy told him NO!
My friend, Omani, was still upsets about everything when they gots home. He came to the fence to talks to me and he really stunk. That stinky cat gots him good and you know what?? What smells exotic from a ways away stinks to doG heaven up close. Doodles eyes watered and I sneezed too. My friend, Omani says the stinky cat sprayed the stink into his eyes and his eyes hurts him. Nursie Stacy told him it would go away in a day or so and put stuff in his eyes to help him. My poor friend Omani. He didn't gets to go to stinky cat's funeral either.
Then, Da dad came out and went into the three packs pen with lots of stuff and the water hose. They all had to get baths in stuff that bubbled on them. It helped my friend, Omani, not stink so bad. They each gots two baths. Whiskey and Doodles didn't have to get baths cuz we didn't get near the stinky cat.
When Da momma came home from workie (very late) she says they smell better and could come into the house now.
Our doctor, Dr. Brenda says she thinks my friend, Omani will be okay, cuz she thinks his shots will work for him and she doesn't think the stinky cat had that bad rabies disease. Doodles herd Da dad tell Da momma that.
I herd Da dad tell Da momma that he thinks we have a family of stinky cats living in the bushes on the outside of our perimeter fence, cuz this was just a baby stinky cat and he couldn't of traveled too far. Doodles hopes the stinky cat family stays on their side of the fence, cuz Doodles don't want no baths.
Better go and see if I can bribe some cookies for looking cute and smelling better then my friend, Omani.
It was Doodles and Whiskey's night to sleep in the house. The meanie Shonee, Tundra and my friend Omani were sleeping outside. Da momma says they may be sleeping outside for a long time.
I woke Da dad up to tells him that stinky cat was around -- cuz it stinked really bad. Da dad let me outside in my back yard to do my business and Doodles didn't see the stinky cat. When I cames in, Da momma made me come into the bedroom with her and Whiskey and I heard Da dad go out front. The three pack didn't come in though. He yelled at them loud.
When Da dad came back in, he tolds us that my friend Omani had killed a stinky cat. Da dad gots him away from the stinky cat and had to bury him. Da momma didn't go to the funeral, she stayed with us and she saids that stinky cats -- she calls them skunks -- are too stinky for her to stand around in her pj's and watch Da dad bury. Doodles thinks she should have gone anyway.
According to Da momma, the three pack has to have their shots -- which means either they have to go to Dr. Brenda or Dr. Brenda has to come here. Da dad's 'posed to call first thing in the morning to find out if Dr. Brenda will come out or allow one of the girls to come and if they are too busy to come today, then the three pack have to go in to the doctors.
Then Da momma saids that they have to have a special bath and Da dad has to go to town to get the rest of the ingredients. I'm glad Doodles and Whiskey don't have to get special baths. Doodles doesn't like baths. I wonder if the bath will make the stinks go away???
Da momma saids that the stinky cats carry something called rabies that us huskies and doggles can get. Doodles hopes his friend Omani doesn't get it. Da momma says that with hope and luck and prayers that the shots will hold them. But maybe the stinky cat didn't have the rabies.
Doodles is worried about his friend. Cross your paws ok?? Doodles is sad that stinky cat lost with Omani -- but Omani is a big doggle and stinky cat is smaller then a doglet and if this stinky cat wasn't full grown, then he was smaller then that.
Doodles is sad that stinky cat didn't get a proper funeral too. Do stinky cats go to the Rainbow Bridge?? Da momma and Da dad are mad about the stink, but Doodles kinda like it and I think they are over reacting, just like typical hoomans, to the smell. It don't smell that bad. It smells kinda interesting...better then that foo-foo perfumie stuff Da momma uses -- it makes me sneeze.
Back to sleepy time -- it's still the middle of the night here.

This is a picture of Doodles at the beach. Doodles loves the beach, but I don't get to go very often because it's very far away. There are fun things to do at the beach. Rub in all kinds of exotic smells and play in the waters. When we go to the beach we gets to stay in a little cabin. It's like a house only way smaller. Da momma says when we goes to the beach, Doodles acts like he is on vacation cuz I won't eat my regular foods and will only eat vacation foods. Vacation foods are cheesyburgers and chicken and fish and french fries.
The quail birds woulda walked into Whiskey's mouths today, but she didn't open her mouths. Instead she barked at the quail bird and he flewed away. I gots to train her better or something. That quail bird will be back though and Doodles is waiting!!
Da momma is walking funny. It must be hard to walk on just 2 legs instead of 4. Anyways, she says it's arfritis in her hip and it hurts her. Doodles says get that arfritis outta there. Da momma says she wants one of those bionic hips like the doggles at Meeshka's place. Doodles says she needs to do to that doggles' doctor and he would give her one. Maybe then she wouldn't walk so funny.
I caught Da momma with tears on her face today. Doodles hates when she does that cuz then Doodles has to lick them all up for her. She said that too many good peeples die and that some lady who loved huskies named Susan Butcher died of some silly disease. Doodles woos for her family and Doodles knows that she's leading the best team of huskies beyond the Rainbow Bridge. One day all us huskies will get to kiss her and woo for her in person.
In other news, Da sister is being very bad. Doodles emailed Da sister several days ago and asked her to fix my blog all up with new links and Paw It Forward like Charlie asked, but Da sister hasn't done it. Doodles even told her to let Sadie Mae on the compooter to update her blog and tell me about the Spa, but she hasn't done that either. Doodles doesn't like it when Da sister doesn't repond to polite requests and Doodles isn't quite sure what to do about it. Da momma says Da sister will be here in a few months for a visit. If she's not done her stuff on my blog by then Doodles is gonna have to keep her in the compooter chair until she does and then Doodles thinks he will parade in the yard with her underwear. She always gets mad when Doodles does that. That will show her about polite requests and stuff -- donja think??
Time to go snuggle with Da momma and try to scare away that arfritis stuff from her hip.

This is the quail bird that is gonna walk into my mouths any time now. He is getting closer and closer and pretty soon he will walk right in. Doodles even has Whiskey convinced to just lay still and watch and wait -- I think she's waiting for one to walk into her mouths too. Da momma says I'm getting droolie face waiting. She's such a goober.
Speaking of Da momma, I heard her tell Da dad that for the next month (how long is that??) she has to do that workie thing a lot. Doodles herd that the other peeples at the workie place are having an operation (does that mean they are broken and have to get fixed like Doodles did??) and then somepeeples is on vacation or something. Doodles thinks they just went to the beach and left Da momma there to do all the workie things. Workie is stoopid. When Meeshka rules the world, I bet we don't have that workie thing no more. Doodles don't like Da momma do that workie thing from sun up to sun down cuz then Da momma is too tired to play with Doodles and Whiskey.
Da momma tolds me that Da sister called and said that Sadie Mae went to the spa and they were mean to her there. Da momma threatens to send Doodles to the spa cuz I don't like to get that torture brush. Why would Da momma send me to a spa if they were mean to Sadie Mae?? Da momma says it would be a different spa then Sadie Mae, but I don't know if I like that whole spa idea. Any of the doglets out there go to the spa?? Are they really mean to you there?? Da momma says they will make me smell good. Doodles doesn't want to smell good, Doodles wants to smell like stinky cat. Doodles likes stinky cat. Doodles will do the bitie thing if they try to make him smell good.
Today Doodles and Whiskey stole Da dads cookies. See he got himself the peeple cookies, you know the kind that taste really good, but they don't let Doodles have. Something about choclate making huskies stoopid or something. Anyway, Da dad got hisself the cookies and then went to the room where the peeples do their business and he left the cookies are the low table in the talking box room. So ---- Doodles took one cookie and Whiskey took the other cookie. They were sure good. But when Da dad came back he asked who ate his cookies and Doodles and Whiskey denied it. Da dad had the nerve to open our mouths and look to see if we had cookie stuff on our teefs. We did, we were busted. He said we were bad HULA-gans. That will teach him to leave the peeple cookies alone. They just called to us and we had to save them.
That's it for now.

Just need to clarify about my post on fences. Doglets ususally do well in yards with short fences, because they are short! Many doglets I have learned don't climb, cuz it might hurt their little backs. But all dogs and doglets get the 'grass is greener' thoughts if left alone too much and you, little doglets still needs to be careful about and all.
I knows not all dogs are huskies (and some of those other kinds are pretty cute for doglets), but us huskies are what Da momma calls nomadic. What that means is we like everyone and every place and like to explore.
So huskies and doglets alike, just be safe and make sure your hoomans keep you safes -- okay??
Short post tonite cuz Da momma needs some extra kisses and snuggles -- she was gone from sun up to sun down (when I woo'd her home) cuz of that workie thing she does.

It's very nice outside for summer. It's only about 90 during the day and the nights time has a little nip in the air -- in the 50's. Doodles and Whiskey been spending time pool-side and catching the rays. Only one problem with that. Whiskey's fur is sunburning. Her black and white tail is turning red and white. You think she might turn all red and white like Meeshka?? I kinda like Whiskey black and white cuz Doodles thinks that it looks good with me -- I'm gray and white....but I don't know, that Meeshka and her red and white sure is purty. Woowoo!!
Doodles wants to know why peeples are so stoopid. Can anyone tell me?? I'm standing at the back door waiting to go out and do my business and they ASK me if I want to go out! HELLO -- do they think Doodles is standing here to look purty??? Then Doodles comes in the house and runs to the cookie jar, which is on the counter -- conveniently placed outta my reach by those same peeples. Doodles is standing there looking purty and trying to tell them that it's COOKIE time. After all, Doodles went outside and did his business and came running back in, what more reason is there to get a COOKIE??? So Da momma peeples, she asks me if I want a cookie. Well, Doodles would rather have a steak, but since those aren't kept in the jar on the counter -- what do I have to do spell it out for her?? Doodles thinks he is becoming a pointer dog or something.
And Da dad peeples is really no better then Da momma peeples. He just ignores us and I have had to resort to bitie and claw to get his attention. Then he looks at Doodles all stoopid like and asks me if Doodles wants something. I only been trying to tell him for ever what it is Doodles wants and he was ignoring me. So Doodles gots his sandle shoe and took a bitie out of it. He hasn't noticed yet -- but he will. Then I went outside and went swimming and came running in and jumped on his side of the big bed. I didn't get Da momma's side wet, only Da dad's side. Doodles will teach him to ignore me!!
Woowooowoowooowoo!!! I almost forgots to tell you. I saws the quail birds today. They are almost big enough to eat! Yummmyyyy!!!! Fresh quail under the veranda. Those quail birds are so stoopid they just walk right into my mouths. Last year a couple of times, I was just sitting in the veranda enjoying the day and the quail bird walked right up to me and about jumped into my mouths. All I had to do was open my mouths and eat him. I can't wait til they do it again....
I'm going out now to wait for the quail birds to walk into my mouths.

Dusty Doodles here, reporting on something serious today.
We all read Meeshka's blog about chips and tatoos and not getting lost. And my own cousin, Sadie Mae, got lost and her tatoo and chip helped her find her momma again.
Chips and tatoos and collars and tags are all important, there is no doubt in Doodles mind. Doodles and all my furry family here are chipped and I am also tatoo'd. Da momma wants us back if ever we get lost or stolen.
I wants to talk to you tonight about containing us huskies and wanna be huskies. We can be difficult to contain and Da momma knows lots of peeples that have lost their dog friends because the dogs friend escaped from the yard. Yards and pens and outside time is important to us. We like it outside where we can enjoy the weather and the bugs and the lizards. But sometimes the grass is greener on the other side of that fence, or it blocks our view of the Jacks or cowdogs and we gotta get out to see those things. Getting out of our fences can be really dangerous for us. There are cars. Why I don't know, seems hoomans can't run very far and have to drive those cars. But those cars smoosh us flat. They are pretty big. And the other thing, out here in the country where Doodles lives, there are farmers and the farmers can SHOOT any dog found harrassing their cowdogs. Now I don't think that's very fair, but they can do it. There are lots of dangers in the peeples world, bad peeples, peeples that do mean things to huskies and doglets.
When you peeples brought us huskies and other doglets into your lives, we needed you to keep us safe. Part of that is keeping us properly contained. Now I like to run free just as much as the next husky, but I also know that there are bad things out there.
Different huskies need different types of fences to keep them contained. Some huskies will stay behind a 4 ft tall fence -- at least until a Jack or cowdog comes along. The best bet is to make our yard or pen as husky-proof as possible.
What does it take to keep us in?? Well, Doodles can tell you what we have here and so far it's kept us pretty safe. We have chain link fencing, it is 6 ft tall. We also have that fencing buried in the ground next to the fence, so when we get in a dig-fest we can't tunnel under the fence. Da momma keeps locks on all our gates. Now the secret is they just look locked, but they aren't really. But those bad peeples that would hurt us don't know that, don't you tell them either -- it's our secret okay?? We also have zappy wire. Doodles doesn't like zappy wire, but it makes me stay away from the fence!! Since we live in the country and have big pens, Da dad also put a perimeter fence around our whole property -- it has a locking gate on it that either you have to have the clicker (if Doodles didn't chew it) to get in or know the special codie thing. The meter lady knows our codie thing, so she gets to come in and feed us COOKIES. The firepeeoples and the poleecepeoples know our codie thing too, so they can save us if we need help and Da momma and dad aren't around. And one other peeples knows our codie and that's our doctor -- cuz she comes by sometimes to visit (without giving shots) when she visits her horsey, which is down the road. When Da sister comes to visit, Da momma gives her a clicker -- if the Doodles hasn't chewed it.
So Doodles feels pretty safe here at my house. Could you please ask your hoomans to go check your fences and make sure you can't get out?? I'd hate to lose my new friends because they escaped and were running free and didn't have compooter axcess. Go. Now. Woo to them and take them to the fence and show them your secret escape spots.

Dusty Doodles here reporting~
Congratulations to Meeshka for her 24 hours blogathon. She raised over $1000 for the huskies that need homes and future HULA members. Also thank you to Opy and Charlie for helping to keep Meeshka awake, while the rest of us in dogdom slept and only dreamed of her.
In news in my neighborhood....well the hoomans are at it again. They keep trying to steal my furs. I've noticed that when my furs starts falling out it gets hot. So Doodles thinks that if he keeps his furs it won't get hot and maybe if I keeps enough of them, it will snow. Never fail, just when I think I've got it going on and am going to get to keep my furs those evil hoomans bring out the brushes and blowers and other instruments of torture to steal my furs. They can make me lie down, but they can't keep me from growling and snarling and generally throwing a fit. I even try to bitie them -- not that I would, but it's fun to watch them jump and stuff!! Well I guess I over did it on the bitie thing because they put a nose glove on my nose. How absolutely insulting. Doodles took it off and then grabbed their arm with the brush thing and held it. They got the message, but not before they stole a whole bagful of my furs.
Da momma bought OTTER POPS yesterdays, but they aren't frozen yet. She says we haves to eat all the Pup Pops first and then she will freeze them. That's okay, at least I know they are here and I feel so much better.
Oh, I found a picture of a stinky cat and will try to post it later. Seems blogger doesn't like Doodles this morning cuz it won't let me post any pictures.
In other news, hmmmm lets see. Nothing much is happening. It's still cool outside -- which is good. Oh, I did notice that Meeshka on her blog talked about the big blue water bowls. We have those -- they are our swimming pools. We have a blue one and a purkle one and then a BIG silber one and a smaller black one. When you lives in the hottest parts of the world, you gots to go swimming. I'm gonna try to post a picture of Doodles swimming in the big silber one. Cross your paws. It worked!!! So that's our BIG pools.
We also have misters for when we hafta be outside...like when the hoomans are working or the it's the meanies time in the house. The misters are hung in our pen and then spray a fine mist of water down on us -- they help keep us cool like the pools.
That's enough for now cuz Whiskey Girl is biting my leg and I gots to go whomp on her!

Dusty Doodles here -

Friday, July 28, 2006
Doodles don't feel so good. I frews up my breakfast today. It wasn't fun and I don't like frowsing up. I felt better after I did though and now I'ms waiting for my dinner. Da momma says she'll feed me cuz Doodles hasn't done it again. I think it was the lizard I ate before breakfast. I swallowed him quick like cuz Da momma saws his tail sticking out of my mouth and I know she was gonna make me leave it. Doodles didn't want to leave it, so I swallowed him. Oops. Bad lizard.
It's cooler today. The weatherhooman didn't lie!!! It's not snowing or anything, but it was only about 90 I heards on the talking box. Doodles did the happy Husky Dance!!!
I did not get Pup Pops today cuz of my tummy. But I didn't bother Da momma abouts them either. I didn't want to upset my tummy and not get my dinner cuz we're having CHICKEN for dinner.
In other news -- Whiskey and Doodles were on the cat watch today. See Da hoomans here feed the wild cats outside the fence. They don't want them to come too close, cuz last time they did -- well, we had a funeral. So they feeds them outside the fence, but we can see them from the backyard. So Whiskey Girl and I sat and watched for them for a long, long time but they didn't come out to play today. You think cats can smell us or something??
While we were cat watching though, we saw a JACK! The Jacks are out and running through the field and we saw them!! Jacks are funny animuls, with them long ears and everything. And they run funny, kinda like a hop or something. I told Whiskey I thought they had the hip problem that some doggies get, but she told me I was stoopid. Doodles is not stoopid.
So that's the news today. Don't forget about Meeshka's blogathon for the homeless huskies. It starts in the morning. I can't wait to see the pictures of her on her hooman's head!! And all the money that's being raised for them huskies that need homes. I hope they all get homes with compooters so they can blog and we can work on taking over the world. Check my links for Meeska's page and make sure you visit there!!

I am still out of OTTER POPS but I might have forgiven Da momma for not running right out to the store and getting more. She made me Pup Pops! They are ice cubes that taste like CHICKEN! Doodles loves chicken second best in the world, next to Otter Pops. So Doodles kinda liked these Pup Pops. I'll let you know if she comes through tomorrow with more of them.
In other news, I want to woo to Da sister for updating my links and stuff. Da momma is kinda stoopid when it comes to that stuff and she doesn't trust the Doodles to figure it out on his own. So I just email Da sister and she does it for me. If you'd like me to link to you, let me know and I'll tell Da sister to add you.
Otherwise, it was a little puppy bit cooler and the weatherhooman says that by Satsday it is supposed to be back in the low 90's or high 80's. That may sound hot to some, but we have been blistering our paws with 110 to 115 so those temperatures sure sound nice. I understand that it's WINTER where Opy and Charlie live and I woo'd Da momma telling her I wanna to go and visit them...she said no.
There was a stinky cat out early this morning. I saws him walking down the street. You do know what a stinky cat is right?? It's those cats that smell a lot and are black and white. I saws him walking down the street and I was sure he was gonna get hit by a car or something, but he didn't. I wanted to go rub on him because that smell is kinda interesting. I member when I was a little pup and was still crated at night, one of those stinky cats came in the yard and got his stinks all over the 3 big dogs. They had to go to the doctors and get shots and then had baths everyday for a week cuz the hoomans wanted to throw up everytime they came in the house. It was pretty funny and I laughed my puppy booty off.
I saws the cowdogs today. They came by for a visit. They sure are interesting with their moo's instead of woo's. Just when I think I have it figured out what they are saying, they change the subject. Kinda rude if you ask me. I think one of them is gonna have a cowpup. I think that's what they said. I'll keep you informed. Maybe if they do have a cowpup, he'll be more my size and I'll get to play with him.
That's the news for today.

Doodles is having a national emergency. This is not a test, this is the real thing!!!
WE ARE OUT OF OTTER POPS!
Everyone who knows Doodles, knows I live for Otter Pops in the summer. They are cool and icy and taste really, really good. Da momma showed me the box from the cold box and it's EMPTY! I woo'd her and told her to get her booty to the store right now and get some more, but she said it was too hot. HOW DOES SHE THINK DOODLES FEELS WITHOUT HIS OTTER POPS!!!???!!
I then tried the Claw from Meeshka fame, but my hooman just moves too quick, so that didn't work. I just don't know what to do or how I'll manage without my Otter Pops. Da momma says she's not going to the store until Satsday and today is only Wedsday. That means I don't have any Otter Pops for Fursday or Frysday. I'm gonna die. I am not a happy Doodles and I even did the bitey thing on Da momma's toes and it's not working. Nothing is working. HELP!!!
I'm going to try a hunger strike and see if that works!

That weatherperson lied. It's still hot, blistering hot and there is no snow in sight. It doesn't snow here -- so that's no lie!
Today I bit Whiskey on the nose. Not real hard, but hard enough that it left a mark and a bump. She had it coming. She's always grabbing me by my beautiful mane and throwing me around and it was just too hot for Doodles to play today. So I bit her. Don't worry, she still loves me.
We gots to try Chinesefoods tonight. Da momma said it was too hot for her to cook, so she sent Da dad to town for the Chinesefoods. We had noodles and rice and some kinda meat. Da momma said it was supposed to be chicken, but it didn't taste like chicken to her, so she wouldn't eat it. We gots it. It was chicken. It was yummy. Yup yummy.
One of our chickens died. I DIDN'T KILL HER!!!! Da dad thinks the heat got to much for her. They are old chickens. So old they don't lay those egg things any more. Da momma says they were in their tirement, and this was thier tirement home. I wanted to eat them. But they are outside our back yard in their own pen. I couldn't even dig in there because they have that wire stuff on the ground to protect them. So anyway now we only have 2 chickens in tirement. They are black. I still wish I could eat them cuz Doodles likes chicken. Da momma says no eating the chickens cuz they are our pets. I don't know if they had the chicken's funeral yet, I didn't see Da momma cry and Da momma cries whenever anything dies. Hoomans are so silly sometimes.
In other news -- Da sister is supposed to be fixing my blog so you have my email. Yup, Doodles stole the secret code and set up his own email account. Shhhhh don't tell Da momma, k??
Tomorrow Doodles is going SHOPPING for new toys with the plastic card that he stole. I'll let you know what I bought, I'm gonna check out that eBay thing and see if they have any Doodle or Whiskey stuff.
Dusty Doodles here reporting on my girl!
This is Whiskey Girl. She's my girl. I love my girl. Isn't she beeeuteeeful????
Da hoooman momma and dad gots her for me so I wouldn't be by myself. See, a while ago Shonee the witch with a 'b' decided I couldn't live with her and Omani and Tundra and she tried her hardest to kill me. So I had to go into a pen by myself. Da momma didn't know if it was me or her that started all the trouble and so I had to go through all kinds of tests. Tests at the doctors and tests at the trainer and tests with peoples and tests with other dogs. I tried to tell them it wasn't me that was the problem, it was that meanie, Shonee. But I pasted all my tests and they decided I needed a friend. I did, I was lonely for the rough and tumble husky play.
Da momma put out the word to rescues and stuff and a BREEDER called her about Whiskey Girl. See Whiskey Girl was supposed to be a famous show dog, but she had some traumas in her life and they left her a wild child. Da momma called her 'near feral'. Don't know what that means but whatever, them hoomans have lots of names for things. The breeder asked da momma if she would take Whiskey Girl because there was no where else for her. No one would buy her and they didn't want to send her to the bridge. So Da momma brought her to meet me and it was love at first sight. I loved Whiskey Girl and she loved Doodles.
Whiskey Girl has come along way since she first camed here. At first she wouldn't come into the house and we had to herd her. I ain't no herding dog, so that was hard for me. Now Whiskey Girl has learned that Da hoomans love her too and wouldn't hurt her, so she comes in and everything. She's still scared sometimes, but I run to her when she gets scared and woo to her and make her all better.
Whiskey Girl loves COOKIES about as much as I do and that's the one thing I don't like about her. She's a cookie hound. Cookies are for Doodles and Doodles will share, but it doesn't mean he has to like sharing. Da momma makes sure I get the biggest and the bestest cookies, cuz I'm her favorite -- at least I better be.
So that's the story of my Whiskey Girl.

Doodles has had some questions and I thought I should answer them. First I want to thank all of you for leaving wonderful comments about my new blog. I just love dem comments!!
My real name is Karamad's One Dusty Guy. Da hoomans named me. See I am grey and white and they thought I looked dusty. They didn't know that right before I met them I gots a bath, so I wasn't even dusty. But that's my real name. They call me Dusty or Doodles or Dusty Doodles. I like Dusty Doodles cuz it just fits.
Sadie Mae is really my niece. But huskies don't have nieces, we have cousins. Sadie Mae's momma is my Da momma's daughter. I call Sadie Mae's momma my Da sister. Sadie Mae is a lab who wants to be a husky and I think she would make a good husky -- she just needs to get fluffier.
Meeshka is not my girlfriend. Ok, so Doodles has a crush on her. Doodles thinks Meeshka is beeeutiful and quite fluffy. My girl is Whiskey Girl. I will post about her probably tomorrow. Whiskey Girl is quite pretty and fluffy. Whiskey Girl and I live together -- but don't worry there won't be any little husky paws hitting the floor, we are both fixed. Da momma says all puppies or dogs that come here are broken and have to get fixed cuz there are too many puppies and dogs that don't have homes.
My sponsorship of Meeshka in her blogathon did not put her over $500, although it brought her pretty close -- but I am still interested in seeing the picture of her sitting on her hooman's head. I would like to take credit for the picture being posted and Meeshka making her goal, but I only helped, I wasn't the 'winning' sponsor.
I've never heard of eBay. I'm gonna have to check that out -- do they have good toys and treats there?? Since I stole the plastic, I gets to go shopping!!!
Yes, I have killed a cat. Honest, it wasn't my fault. I found him in my yard and I was just playing with him. Who knew they were so fragile. I was really upset when he died and the hoomans found out, cuz they took him away for burial and I didn't get to attend the funeral.
I been trying to post a picture of me and this blog won't cooperate tonight, so you all will have to wait until tomorrow.
It's still hotter then you know what outside. Even though the weather people promised cooler days, they lied.
It's been so hot even the cowdogs are not coming around to play. Yep, we have cowdogs as neighbors. Da hoomans call them cattle, but I know they are cowdogs. The come to the fence and invite us to play -- we can't go over there -- it's got zappy wire, but we woo to them and they woo back -- except their woo sounds kinda funny, more like a moooooo. I haven't seen them since it got so hot. Da hooman Momma says that they are probably staying at the pond, where it's cooler. Maybe so, but I miss them.
Otherwise, lets see, hmmmm....the bluelady came today. She's nice and gives us cookies. Doodles loves cookies!! She says she reads the meter, but I don't know what that is. She parks at the gate, walks in the walkway gate and goes to the back of the house. Then when she comes out she gives us COOKIES. I woo her all the way back!
Well that's it for now, maybe more later about WHISKEY GIRL.

This is Sadie Mae. Sadie is a lab, she's not a husky. Sadie is my cousin. She owns my hooman sister, Becca. Sadie used to live close to us, but then Da Sister got a job in the desert, so they moved far, far away -- all the way to SoCal, in the desert. Da Sister has to teach them little kids at a school. And Sadie doesn't like staying home by herselfs, so she escapes sometimes. Da sister thinks she has it fixed so the Sadie doesn't escape any more....but I don't know. Last time Sadie escaped she went to ARIZONA. That's a long way from her home in the desert. A lady found her and took her to the doctor to get her neck scanned and they found Sadie had a microchip and Sadie gots to go home to her mom. I gots a microchip too. But I'm not real keen on escaping. When I get out of my pen, I just run to the back pen so I can come into the house. Da hoomans have a perimeter fence and it has zappy wire on it to keep us in. I don't like zappy wires so I don't go near it.
Sometimes the way Sadie escapes and some of her other escapades makes me think she's part husky. She's not. She's just a lab trying to be a husky. I think she learned it from me.
Check out Sadie's blog when you have time, I had Da sister list it in the sidebar so you could find it easier.
Oh, and don't forget to sponser my favorite girl, MEESHKA, in her upcoming blogathon. Meeshka is raising money for the homeless huskies that Harnessed To Hope are trying to help. Just click on Meeshka's fluffiness and it will take you right to her blog.
