I had to wear my gentle leader for the first time yesterday. It was terrible. Here's Dad fitting it on me. Notice how Mom has her finger holding my collar. I was trapped.

I have a new nickname. "Honey Head". You probably think that's a very strange name. It all happened on Christmas...
Mom was making some honey wheat bread and she had some honey in a measuring cup. After she had dumped the honey in the mixing bowl, there was still honey left on the sides. So when she went to put the measuring cup in the dishwasher, I wanted to help and stuck my head under the top rack of the dishwasher and some honey dripped all over my head! Dad tried to clean me all up, but honey is pretty sticky and I still have some dried in the fur on my head between my ears. Mom says it will wear off and now she calls me Honey Head. She says it fits me because I am a very sweet puppy. (And yes, she still calls me a puppy and says she will do that forever.)

Steve mentioned in his post that I got a new ball for Christmas. He failed to mention that I got the new ball to replace my favorite ball that he chewed up. Mom couldn't find the exact same "Life is Good" yellow ball for me, so she was worried that I wouldn't like what she got. She found me a pink Fetch ball from Orbee-Tuff. She said it felt a lot stiffer so maybe Steve couldn't chew a hole in it, but she was worried that I wouldn't like it as much since neither Mom or Dad knew exactly why I liked my yellow ball so much.

I don't know what I did wrong. I thought I was good all year. I was nice when we had Ulee (Kat was mean), I didn't chew anything up, I didn't dig (Kat did), I didn't chase Wilbur as much as Kat chased him, I did everything a good husky should do, but Santa still hates me.

On Friday, we got a package from Khyra! We were so excited. Mom says we're getting spoiled with all the presents our friends are sending us.

We got another package the other day from MayaMarie and Missy. It was so great. I could smell the goodness as soon as I saw the box.
They sent us some three cheese biscuits that their mom made.

I went to the vet today to be tested for giardia. Mom took me to a vet that was recommended to her by one of her new coworkers. Get this. Her coworker's name is Steve and he has a husky. My name is Steve and I am a husky. That is really weird, right? Anyway, Mom's coworker Steve takes his husky to a vet near our house, so Mom decided to try it out. She looked at the website and the head vet went to vet school at the University of Missouri. Since Mom grew up in Missouri, she figured that he was probably a good vet. But today, when we got to the vet, guess where the vet I saw went to vet school. Oklahoma State University! That's where Mom went to college too, so at that point, she knew we were at a great place. Mom really liked the vet that we talked to and he used to have an Alaskan Malamute, so he was even familiar with northern breeds.

In response to my post a couple days ago about being sick, my good friend Khyra asked, "P.S. - Are you sure the evil khritter isn't poisoning you somehow? We know how he attakhked your poor innocent hu-mom in her sleep -I'm just wooin'" (I hope you can all speak Khyra-ese.)

Hi pups. I am feeling better today. I woke up in a much perkier mood. Mom is really relieved.

Mom took me to the vet at about 1:00 AM today. I threw up six times from 8 PM to midnight, then a little after midnight, I went #2 and Mom saw blood and what she thought looked like blood clots. So needless to say, she freaked out! She loaded Steve and me up in the car and away we went to the ER vet.

Today the FedEx truck came to our house and gave us a BIG box. It was from our Texas grandparents! Mom wasn't sure if we should open it now or wait until Christmas, so she just put it on the floor next to the door. I knew that my Texas grandma would want me to have anything that was in the box and I was also sure I smelled something delicious in there.

Since Dad is gone, I'm the man of the house. (No matter what Wilbur says.) I am really taking my new job seriously. I don't want Dad's side of the bed to be unused, so I have been keeping it warm.

Kat's been being really gross and going potty in the house. She says that if Mom can go potty in the house, she should be able to as well. Mom disagrees. So Mom needed some help cleaning up after Kat and bought a Spot Bot. She says it works pretty well and she can start it and do other things. I say that it's really noisy. Kat hasn't gone potty in the house since the Spot Bot showed up. I think she realized that if she stopped being bad, then we wouldn't have to listen to the Spot Bot.

Hey everypuppy! We have some new videos of us at a dog park in Seattle. It was a really cool dog park.

Sorry we haven't updated you in a few days. Our stuff arrived on Friday and we have been really busy making sure Mom and Dad put everything in a good spot. We also had to run around in packing paper for a while too.
Here's what our house looked like Friday night. Total disaster!!It was so bad, I had to go hide under the table.Then the greatest thing happened yesterday. We got tons of snow! So while Mom and Dad were working, Steve and I enjoyed some time on the patio. Dad made me a snowball and I brought it inside. Mom didn't appreciate that very much.
Now things are pretty much unpacked so we have been able to relax more. It seems more like home now that all our fur-covered stuff is here.
