Halloween Fun

Trick or Treat! Since we can't give out treats to all of our friends, we decided to share this quiz. It's about blogging addictions. We are 68% addicted. I can't wait to see how addicted you pups are!!

Safety Consultant Kat

Hi! A while ago, Stormy sent out a new message to the Army of Four troopers. Since I am a trooper, I quickly got to work. My job in the Army of Four is to be the Safety Consultant. A Sibe can never be too safe, so I try to make sure that I demonstrate correct safety procedures for the other troopers to follow.

We got some doggie seatbelt systems. It took a long time for them to get to us, but we finally got them last week and had a chance to try them out this weekend when we went to the dog park. Here we are showing what a proper safety harness looks like when it's on. (You might have trouble seeing it on me since I'm black and so is the safety harness, so I'll show you Steve as well.)Now, troopers, we have to be alert and in charge of our own safety. We can't rely on our humans to help us. In fact, this weekend, when Mom and Dad strapped us in the car, we got completely tangled up. How safe is that? Not very, I say! (Ladies, watch out. Steve's fluffy butt is filling this picture!)Mom and Dad used the excuse that they think we're missing a part of the seatbelt system and Mom is going to call the company tomorrow. So let this be a lesson to all troopers. If you want to be safe, don't rely on humans to help you. And everypup should practice safe riding practices when in the car.

Be safe out there troopers!

Come and Get It!

Come on pups! Step right up! It's time for your daily dose of cuteness! Mom took this picture of Steve and me in the car. She couldn't get the perfect angle, but she thought we were looking pretty cute!! (Steve's resting his head on Dad's work bag.)

Tail Gunner Steve

Hey pups! It's Steve! I wanted to share a picture with you. When I ride in the car with my mom and dad I like to sit in the back of the car and watch the other cars. Mom says that I'm being the 4Runner Tail Gunner.

Back in World War 2, some airmen who flew on the B17 were given the job of tail gunner. Here's a picture of the B17 Flying Fortress. If you look closely, you can see the machine guns sticking out the back of the airplane.Here's a close up shot of the tail gunner position.Here's me in position as the 4Runner Tail Gunner. Nobody messes with my 4Runner.As part of my trooper duties in the A04, I have to be on high alert for cats who try to hijack 4Runners. As you can see, I'm taking that task to heart.

Birthday Cake

Kat mentioned in the last post that Mom was baking a birthday cake for us. I decided that all of my blogging friends, especially Echo, would like to see pictures of the cake and me eating it.

Here's the cake, fresh out of the oven. Those red specks in it are crumbled Beggin' Strips. Yum!
Mom cut the cake into six pieces so we've been able to have cake for three nights. She put some plain yogurt on top for frosting. We love yogurt. It would have been a tad better with some banana slices too, but who am I to complain? Here we are waiting patiently for our cake. (Yes, I am being patient. No matter what anyone tells you.) Here's me eating it. It was so good. And here's Kat eating her piece too. Well, I hope you enjoyed our cake pictures. If you want some of your own cake, order the recipe book from Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue.

It's our birthday!

Today is a BIG day. Our first birthday!! This morning we got to open one of our birthday presents. It was from our Texas Grandma and Grandpa! It came in a box with cool bird stickers.
Here's a video of us opening the box.

Can you believe all the great stuff we got? We got a new Mr. Orange Bad Cuz (remember how our other one mysteriously died?) and a Ms. Green Good Cuz. We got some yummy Canidae Snap Biscuits and some smaller treats that Mom is going to stuff in our Kongs with peanut butter. Yummy! But best of all, did you see the size of those enormous bones? That was Steve's favorite part. He loves them. I am quite fond of Ms. Green Good Cuz and have been carrying her around all morning. Thank you so much for our presents!!

We didn't get a present from Mom and Dad but it's (hopefully) in the mail. They ordered us doggie seat belt systems so we will be safe in the car. Mom waited until now so she knew how big we would be.

Tonight we are having a birthday pawty. Mom is making human cupcakes now and she's going to make us a doggie birthday cake as soon as the cupcakes are finished. We're so excited. Here is the invitation. I hope you all can pawty with us!


Time flies when you're having fun,
And now Steve and Kat are turning one!
Join us for a birthday paw-ty,
Where there will be lots of good stuff to eat!

Burgers, fixings, drinks and sides,
Will all be there before your eyes.
Please be sure to RSVP,
So we know how many people we're going to see!

Interview with Marley

Marley sent me some interview questions. I can't wait to answer them! Marley's questions are in red.

1. If you could vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? What a great question! I think I would pick somewhere with snow. We don't get much, if any, snow in Texas. Maybe Iceland. That sounds like a good, cold place!

2. If you could eat one people food item every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
This one is easy. Bananas!! I love them. Whenever Dad is eating a bananas, I try to look as cute as I can possibly look in the hopes that he will give me a luscious bite of banana. Unfortunately, Dad and Mom have this stupid idea that if they give us food while they are eating, then we will beg for food every time they eat. So we only get banana when Mom cuts it up especially for us. Where do humans get these ideas?

3. If you were a super hero, what would your name be, and what powers would you have?
I would be SUPER SILLY STEVE, or S-cubed for short. My power would be to bring laughter to all I encounter. I like to be goofy, so this power would be right up my alley. Here is a good SUPER SILLY STEVE picture.
4. Getting dressed up by a human: cool or lame? It depends. If it's actual clothes, then it's lame. But sometimes Mom makes us wear bandannas and that's not so bad because it usually means we are going some place cool and when we wear bandannas, people always think we are extra awesome, so we get lots of attention and pets. I'm cool with that.

5. What is your favorite pastime?
It's a toss up between eating and chewing on my Kong. I love both a lot.

Now, if you want me to interview you, you can abide by these rules.
1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave me a comment saying, 'interview me.'
2. I will respond by posting five questions for you. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Our Cookies!

Mom went to a doggie bakery this weekend. Look what she brought us! Cool, right? Cookies with our names on them. We were so excited to eat them. We were worried that Mom wouldn't give us the right cookies, but as you can see in this video, it turns out that she can read pretty well!

I immediately went to my bed and started chowing down.
Kat sat on the floor to eat her cookie, but first she had to watch me show her how to eat it. They were really good cookies. Very crunchy, so we couldn't eat them too fast. I hope she goes to that bakery again soon!

Interview from Turbo

Turbo sent us some questions for an interview. We were ever so happy to answer his questions since he is sure to be the next President of Dogcountry. So without further ado, here is our interview. Turbo's questions are in RED.

1. Steve, what advice do you have for dogs who live with bossy girl dogs?
Well, Tubey, living with a bossy girl dog is a really difficult task. I think the key is to pretend that you don't care when the girl dog is trying to boss you around and being very "girl doggy". I like to just ignore Kat when she tries to tell me what to do. I let her think she is the boss, but who eventually gets all the toys? That would be me. When Kat has a toy I want, I just stand or lie down in front of her and bark at her nonstop until she gets up so I can have the toy. If that doesn't work, my other trick is to go stand by the back door like I need to go potty and when Mom or Dad opens the door to let me out, Kat always wants to go outside too, so I let her get up to go outside, and then I run over and steal her toy. Those tricks make Kat think that she's in control, but really, I am controlling the entire situation.

2. Kat, how lucky do you feel living with a sweet, kind, and gentle dog like Steve?
Sweet, kind, gentle? Are we talking about the same Steve? You should see his face when we are wrestling. He's got some sharp, vampire fangs! Oh sure, he lets me tell him what to do and doesn't fight back, so that's good. But he's actually pretty annoying. He tries to scarf down his food really fast and then give me the sad eyes while I'm slowly eating my food. Like I'm going to fall for that! And then when we get treats or chew toys, he chews his up as fast as he can so he can bark at me to get the rest of mine. So annoying. So I don't know what Steve you are referring to.

3. Wilbur, do you wake up each day with a smile on your face because you are blessed with living with huskies?
Well, first off, I don't wake up very much. I like to do a lot of napping. I do enjoy tormenting the furry beasts. Sometimes I sit on my side of the baby gate in my room and show them that I have food out all the time and they only get to eat at certain times. That really makes the gray furry beast jealous!

4. Why are humans so stupid?
That's a hard one! I, Wilbur, am going to answer it. I think humans are stupid because they are sleep deprived. I am always at the top of my game, alert and smart. That's due to the fact that I sleep 21 hours and 47 minutes every day. If humans would sleep that much, then they could be smarter.

5. Is there any song more stupid than the fight song of the Sooners?
I, Kat, will answer this since I am the expert on Oklahoma college football teams. No, there isn't a more stupid fight song. The Sooner fight song has to be the most perfect example of human stupididty. I mean, there are only two words in the entire song. What humans are stupid enough to think that singing "Boomer Sooner" over and over again makes a fight song? I think it's probably because Sooners are only smart enough to remember two words.

Thank you for this interview, Tubey! We really enjoyed it. We will be posting our interview with Marley soon so stay tuned!

If you would like to be interviewed by us, here are the rules:
1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave me a comment saying, 'interview me.'
2. I will respond by posting five questions for you. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions.

We're still here!

Hey pups! We are still alive, don't worry. Our parents got these new things called iPhones and they keep playing with them instead of letting us blog. I don't see what the big deal is. The iPhone just looks like a shiny piece of metal, but they seem to be completely mezmerized by it. Weird.

On Friday, we went over to Bailey's house while our parents played games with Bailey's parents. Bailey has a big backyard and we like to run around in it. After we were tired, Mom gave us each a bone to chew on. Steve and I devoured ours right away, but Bailey just went and hid hers under her dad's chair. Well, you know Steve, he smelled that bone right away and tried to steal it. They got in a fight and Bailey had to go in timeout. I felt bad for her. I mean, Steve was trying to steal her bone. What's a girl to do?

On Saturday, we went to the dog park. We saw Mom's friend Logan and her puppy Mikimoto. He's an American Eskimo dog. We didn't get to play with him because he was in the small dog area, but I sniffed him through the fence. Wow, he was fluffy and couldn't run very fast. Mom said it's because his legs are only a fraction as long as mine. Oh well, he was still pretty cute.

On Saturday afternoon, Mom left us at home with Dad. When she came home, she smelled like other huskies. I tried to give her the cold shoulder for cheating on me. She said she was helping at an Adopt a Husky event. Luckily she did not bring home another foster dog. Steve wants another foster, but I am not ready for one. Dad made Mom promise not to bring one home. (Speaking of foster dogs, Ulee has some new pictures of herself on Dogster. There is a link on our side bar.)

Sunday we were just lazy all day. Same yesterday. Dad is sick, so we have to be good. Like when we wrestle, we really try to wrestle on top of him when he's trying to sleep in the bed. I know he doesn't want to be left out just because he is sick. I've been worried that he's thirsty, so I've been rolling my face in my water bowl and then rubbing my face all over his face. That way he can have some water. Aren't I a good girl?

We got tagged by the Army of Four to do our theme songs and I'm still working on them, so stay tuned!!
