Thank you to everyone who voted for the picture of me with my ME stuffie, Holly Go Lightly! I won the photo of the month vote, so you will see this picture of me on the Dogs With Blogs web site for the month of July.

I also want to thank my good friends Thrawn, Tucker, Dot, Samantha, and Bear of the Brat Pack (aka The Five Happy Hounds ) who nominated my photo. That was very sweet of you and I so humbled by your thoughtfulness!

I would also like to congratulate all the other nominees. They were great pictures, and voting was close, as all were very wothy of winning!

The human woman is on vacation all next week, so hopefully I will be able to post a bit more often. She isn't going anywhere, or doing anything. Well, she's suppose to be working on scraping wallpaper and also, with the help of dad, putting in our new wood flooring. We'll see how ambitious she actually is come Monday!

Till later.....

(I'm so very excited!)

Things About Me

I was reading my friend Lorenza's blog, and she had a great idea which she got from The Dogs of Jackman Avenue, to share information about yourself, then invite your doggie friends to do the same. I think it's a great way for my doggie friends to get to know me even better. And, hopefully, they will share the same great things about themselves, so I can get to know them better!

So, here goes......

1. Your age? About 2 1/2

2. Your age when came to live with your people? Approximately 1

3. What color is the collar you’re wearing right now? Green with blue and gold.

4. Who is your favorite person other than the people you live with? My cousin Tracey who doggie sits us when the humans go out of town!

5. How much do you weigh? Wow, do I really have to tell? Ok, 122 pounds - but I have a medical condition (hypothyroidism) so I have an excuse!

6. Most expensive thing you’ve ever chewed up? Nothing that the humans are aware of!! And, since Sam is the usual suspect, I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I might incriminate myself.

7. Do you like other Dogs? Some yes, some no. I'm very picky.

8. Who is your best non-human friend? I like to hang out with Monty in the basement.

9. Squeaky Toys or Tennis Balls? Actually, I prefer stuffies.

10. Do you like to be brushed? Ummmm, I hate to admit it, but I don't really mind it! It makes me feel better.

11. Peanut Butter or Cheese? How about peanut butter with cheese on top?

12. Do your people cut your toenails? Yes

13. Any formal education? Nope

14. Couch potato or Energizer Bunny? Definitely both! I love to go for my morning jogs, and could run and run. But, I really love my naps ON the couch!

15. Five nicknames your people call you. Hollybollyboo, Hollyboo, Bollyboo, Boo, Boo Monster

16. What is your best trick? The drop and roll over to show my tummy so I can get it rubbed!

17. Do you like kitties? Yes, very tasty!! Just kidding! I liked my Kirby, but not sure about any others.

18. What did you have for breakfast? 1 1/2 cups of my Barking at the Moon dry dog food.

19. Can you hunt (aka have you ever killed anything living)? I am a terrific hunter!! I have caught birds right out of the air, a baby squirrell, and a rabbitt too!

20. When & why was the last time you went to the V.E.T.? I went just a few weeks ago to have my thyroid tested since I was loosing all my fluffy fur and getting even fatter.

21. Where do you sleep at night? My 3 favorite spots are in this order: 1) the basement mattress the humans have on the floor for me, 2) the spare bedroom bed, and 3) the living room floor under the ceiling fan.

22. Do you like to swim? Yes, but in a lake, not a pool.

23. Can you make puppies? NO

24. Do you give kisses? Absolutely

25. Can you potty on command? Um, no. That would require me to obey, and I only do that when I want to!

26. To Cuz or not to Cuz? Definitely NOT!! In fact, I just sent my yellow Cuz to Turbo!!

Well, my doggie friends, I hope this helps you learn a bit more about me. I hope you will copy these questions, and answer them on your own blogs!!

I would also like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to my good friend Sitka and her human for the following totally awesome photo. I absolutely love it!!!

That's my darling Dave of the Army of Four!! Don't we look good together? I can't wait till the day I can actually met him for REAL!

I Love My Dad!

My dad is very cool! Here are a few reasons why;

He takes all 5 of us for a walk/jog every morning when he gets home from work! Well, he actually has to make 3 different trips, cuz he takes me and Monty first, then comes back and takes Samuel, then finally the gimpys, Abby and Kona (Kona's a gimpy simply because he's slooooowwwwww).

He also takes the time to brush us with that evil Furminator! Well, we may not like it, but it really is good for us to get rid of all that fur when it starts to get really hot outside! And, since getting rid of some of that fur makes us cooler, I guess it's ok....for now.

He is also in charge of yard clean-up and maintenance. That way we always have a nice fresh yard to do our business in. And, with 5 of us, that's a lot of business! He's still trying to talk mom into helping with that. But she said if she has to do it, she'll just hire one of those companies to do it!

Dad is also great to nap with! We all try to take turns with him. Sam is usually the one to hog the bed though. The rest of us usually just take turns laying around the bed. Here is a good picture of most of us snoozing with dad while he naps on the couch. That's Samuel helping hog the couch!

Here I am getting some much needed attention and snuggling with dad while he tries to feed Monty. Everydog else is hanging out to see if they can lick the bowl when he's done. Especially Samuel, he's quite the vulture! See how he's eyeing the bowl?

Dad also likes to buy mom cool Husky/Malamute stuff. Like the license plates, and Husky stuffies (which she puts on shelves where we can't get them).

Well, I just wanted to say what a great dad I have, and how much I love him. And you can tell, he sure loves all of us too. So, HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all our dads, who give us the love and attention we all certainly deserve.

(here's to you dad, you ROCK!)

This is Sooooo Cool!

More cool presents! Dad found some exceptionally COOL presents on e-bay (his favorite shopping place). Take a look at this!

Do you know what this is??? It's a personalized, airbrushed license plate with a picture of me (ok, a Malamute, but close enough) and my name on it!!! It also comes with a very pretty sparkly frame! And, dad, being the nice guy he is, got one for ALL of us! Look how pretty they are!!!!!!

Abby and Samuel's are both blue eyed Sibes, just like them! We are all very excited! Mom is going to put them up on the wall. She says they are way to beautiful to put on a car. She is very happy dad likes to buy her cool things....especially when they deal with her beloved fur kids!

If you are interested in getting your own personalized license plate, check out the sellers e-bay store here. You get to pick the color of lettering, and the color of the frame, and they are very inexpensive!!

(shop-away my doggie friends!)

ME stuffie!!

I got the coolest new stuffie! It's a ME stuffie!

Here's how it all started. A very worthy organization called Save our Siberians - Siberspace Rescue Fund, who helps raise and disburse funds to Siberian Husky rescue groups, was having an e-bay auction. The money raised is disbursed to rescue groups for non-routine medical espenses, medications and surgeries. You can read about some of their current rescue projects here.

Well, I saw the coolest stuffie, and knew immediately that I just HAD to have it! And, as you all know, when I really want something, I GET IT!

What I got was a stuffie named, now get this............Holly Go Lightly! See how cool it is??

She has a really cool bandanna, she barks, and even says "Hi, I'm Holly Go Lightly!" How cool is that!?!?

I really like my new ME stuffie! I will have to be sure that stupid and pathetic Samuel doesn't get a hold of it or he will de-stuff me! Mom put it up on a shelf, and will only bring it down for ME to cuddle with. I would never destroy it, cuz it's a ME stuffie!

(forever immortalized in a stuffie)

Stormy of the Ao4 reminds my human of her sweet, departed Shula, who went to the Rainbow Bridge in November 2005, just a month before I was found. Mom says they have the same eyes, and extremely similar facial markings. Therefore, Stormy holds a very special place in mom's heart, and she often gets a tear in her eye whenever she sees pictures of Stormy. She says they are "good" tears, because it helps her remember Shula, how much she loved her, and what she might be doing around our house, if she were still here. I thought I would share pictures of Stormy and Shula and see if anydog else thought they looked like twins!

This is Stormy.

And this is Shula.

So, what do you think?

The human woman is weird

Just like Turbo's human, my human is old. She is obsessed with 2 movies from the 1970's, which she has watched soooooo many times, she has all the dialogue memorized. Yes, memorized, word for word! It's quite annoying to hear her speak right along with the characters. Drives dad crazy.

What, may you ask, are these two movies? Jaws and Star Wars.

And, here's the worst part. Last weekend, there was a Jawsathon on HBO. Guess what she did all weekend? Yep, watched Jaws. What a loser.

And this weekend? Can you guess what's on HBO? Yep, Star Wars. ALL of them! Back to back, over and over. She is part slug, I swear!!! All she does is sit in that darn recliner and watch those movies!

She really needs a hobby.
