This was me being captured by Mommy Cate:
By the way, Ozzie, is this YOU???
Husky Steals Bone from Supermarket
By all, gotta go hide from the dremel nail eater.

We had a great day. New toys, Christmas dinner (potatoes, carrots, and some of mommy Claire's sausage) and lots of snuggles and kisses. Mommy Cate brushed out Echo and Sabre. She took a picture. She said we have a whole 'nother puppy there! I tried to get it to play with me, but it wouldn't.
Special hugs to Ozzie! Love you bro!
What's left of my brothers.

Sometimes, late at night when I'm looking out the sliding glass doors into our back yard and wishing I was eating pinecones, I see the ghost!
I think it's a girl, and she's a husky my size! At first she looks nice and friendly but then when I look at her close she looks a little mean. When I growl at her she gets a REALLY mean look on her face like she's growling back!
She has to be a ghost, because a live dog would smell like dog and a dead one would smell bad. I keep trying to tell the mommies, but they just laugh and laugh while I try to keep the ghost dog out.
It is my sworn duty now to guard the mommies against this ghost dog every night. If someone could please tell my mommies I'd appreciate it, because they don't listen to me.
PS - Echo and Sabre don't believe me either.
PPS - Happy Christmas Eve!

* I'm 30 pounds now!
* I'm 4 months old.
* I have my 4 front top big girl teeth, and I just lost a side baby tooth.
* My vet just gave me a rabies shot, so I apparently have rabies now. Not sure how that works or why I'd want it, but it stung.
* I love to give kisses!

So Sunday was my play date with my litter brother Ozzie. We had sooo much fun. We played, and fought, and tumbled and ran. Then we fought some more. We were playing in the yard and I found a fresh pile one of my big brothers left, so I rolled Ozzie in it. Sorry Oz!
Ozzie and I look so different now! I'm super fuzzy and he's all nice and neat looking. Darn humidity! Mommy Cate says I'm a "chunk", but I don't know what that means. All I know is it is fun to hear her say "oof" when she picks me up. I think she's trying to bark. So cute.
I got to meet John and Kelly, Ozzie's humans. They're pretty nice!
Ozzie lost two teeth biting me while we played. I didn't feel a thing! I'm husky tough! Oz, I'll mail your teeth if I find them.
ps Oz, my brother Echo said you didn't follow through on your claim that you could beat him up.
Here's the pictures!
This is Oz playing vampire.
This is us touching noses the hard way.
This is Oz trying to smother me.
Mommy Cate tries to wipe poop off of Ozzie after I rolled him in it.
Ozzie tries to escape, but I grab him by the tail.
Oz gets away. I totally let him.
Oz tries to use me as a pillow.
Me. I'm so pretty.
This is us playing looking fierce. Oz is on the left.
Us again. Oz on the left again.
I can't wait for the next play date! Loves ya OZ!

However, last night, she captured me and threw me in a PLAYPEN. She said "Look Dief, you're right beside me and I can lean over and kiss you on the nose. I have orders to fill, so hush. You're fine!"
And, yes, it's true. I could get a kiss whenever I wanted but I *HATE* when she works.
#1 - She ignores me. She says she can't solder if she's looking at me cause she'll burn the shop down.
#2 - She makes LOUD noises with her hammer.
#3 - She ignores me.
#4 - She makes smelly things when she uses her stuff to "oxidize silver".
#5 - She ignores me.
#6 - She tells me to be quiet for just one minute while she concentrates. Like I'm not concentrating too? I'm concentrating on all the talking and howling! It doesn't just HAPPEN.
#7 - She ignores me.
#8 - She doesn't let me eat the shiny rocks if she drops them. She also doesn't let me play with the stuff she makes.
So, I have decided that since Mommy Cate has decided I need to hang out with her when she works downstairs that I'm not going to be her friend anymore.
*grumble* *grumble* *howl*

Click the pictures to see them bigger!
Mommy Cate had to go to work yesterday and Carmen had to go back to some place called the Army, so Mommy Claire babysat me yesterday! This was the first time since she got attacked by that surgeondog. She said she actually had a median sternotomy, but I dunno what that means. I do know it means that she can't pick me up cause I'm too heavy; I'm 23 pounds!!! AWOOOOOOO!
So yesterday I was all confused, and kept asking to go out. I'd come back in, but I'd see that she wasn't up to playing, so I'd ask to go right back out again. Then when she still wouldn't play I peed on the floor by her desk. Sorry Mom, dunno what came over me.
So anyway, Mommy Cate left for work this morning and told me I have to behave. I gave her kisses the whole time she was trying to tie her shoes. That's SOOO funny cause she gets annoyed but still likes it, so she doesn't tell me off. I gotta go back to sleep for a while until Mommy Claire can get up and let me out of my cave.
Oz, my brother, you gotta tell Mommy Cate where we should meet up! She pulled me out of my Sunday class at PetSmart. I know all the commands already and there was only one other dog. She wanted me to socialize, but I know how to do that already. I got Sunday afternoon available now!
Friday, November 28, 2008
Anyway, Mommy Cate didn't go to work yesterday, which was awesome just on its own, but then they started cooking all these GREAT smells. I was pretty sad when the three of them started eating all that wonderful food because we'd just had kibble for lunch.
Sabre and Echo kept telling me to wait for it. They said they'd had lots of Thanksgivings, and that the pack leaders always made them a plate of food after they were done. I was pretty excited, and sure enough, Carmen and Mommy Cate made us all a plate of everything! I had turkey, gravy, potatoes, carrots and a little bit of something called a roll. It was SOOOO good I licked my plate over and over. Then, for normal dinner, we got a little kibble with a little bit more of all that great stuff!
Man, I love this Thanksgiving thing. I'm a pretty lucky puppy!

She yelped and said I hit her brain!
Hahahahahaha. Carmen is SO funny. I'm gonna try it again today when she isn't expecting it.
Oh yeah, and I'm 21 pounds now!!! Husky power!!
Tuesday, November 25, 2008
Well, I guess she must have gotten tired of me doing that because she put a HUSKY TRAP in the room!!! I snuck behind the door, where this sticky thing was on the floor. Mommy Cate SAYS she forgot it was there and the old people that lived here had wanted to relocate a mouse. I don't know what a mouse is, but I know it was to trap me!
Anyway, I snuck back in to her studio and made sure she was working on something with her magic fire tool so she was distracted. I decided I wanted to start my run behind the door, so I snuck back there.
But then this husky trap grabbed my back foot! I cried and ran and ran so fast. I ran behind all the boxes, trying to get away. Stuff was falling down all around me as I tore through the room. I saw Mommy Cate shut off her fire and yell "DIEF!!!! STOP DESTROYING EVERYTHING!", but all I could do was keep running, trying to get away from the thing grabbing my foot!! I ran into the clear area of the room where Mommy Claire's picture taking stuff is going to be. Mommy Cate saw me running and saw me looking at my foot!
I broke for the door, but Mommy Cate grabbed me up. The husky trap still had me, so I had to wriggle and wriggle and try to get away. Mommy Cate was telling me to calm down!
Calm DOWN? I had a husky trap on my foot!! That must mean she was in on it! I fought even harder to get away, but somehow she carried me up the stairs and opened the sliding door to get in the house. The husky trap STILL had me and Mommy Cate was LAUGHING!
She opened the pantry door and got OIL! I've seen her use that when she cooks stuff! I thought "Oh no, she's going to EAT ME!!!!" so I fought even harder still, since she only had me with one arm. Somehow she still wrestled me into the kitchen sink. She held me with one arm while she opened the oil, and then she started to pour it on my trapped foot. That was the last straw. I knew she had fattened me up enough and was going to have me for dinner. So, I flipped myself over in the sink but she got me anyway - cooking oil all over my back and tail instead!
She was laughing and telling me I was a crazy animal, and to be still already! Like I should just let her cook me? I don't think so. She started to put oil on my paw and got the husky trap off. Then she ran warm water and started to WASH me! I knew the pot couldn't be far behind, so I started trying to jump out of her arms while she was rubbing the oil in.
She grabbed me and muttered something about "crazy husky." You'll never guess what she tried to do next! She took me to the drowning place! Of course, that makes sense. It's easier to cook me if I'm drowned, right? So I fought all the way up the stairs. Mommy put me in the drowning place and spent about 15 minutes trying to prep me for dinner! She put this soap on me (I think it's like salt or pepper or something) and was rubbing it all over me. I fought SO hard. She was saying her back was starting to hurt and would I please calm down. In the end she gave up trying to drown me, and grabbed a towel. After she towel dried me off, she just sat down and started laughing at me. The good news was she didn't eat me after all. But I have to watch her now. I gave her dirty looks all night to let her know that I was on to her.
Well, the next morning, she feeds me and is all nice and sweet. Then she takes me to the truck and puts me in the crate! She never does that. She normally feeds us and goes to work. She didn't take my brothers, just ME. I yelled for help the whole time in the truck but we didn't pass any police officers. We finally got to the place where she took me in and started talking about me being there for doggie daycare. I don't know what that means, but she left me!
Anyway, all day long I was miserable. The people there weighed me, stole my poop and looked at it (I wasn't done with it yet either!), and then a big mosquito bit me. The people at my new home really liked me, but I was so sad. They said I was super smart, because I know sit, down, come and stay already. I didn't eat all my lunch or dinner because I was missing everyone, and wondering what I did that made Mommy Cate try to cook me and then sell me.
But then she finally came back! Oh, I was so happy!
So I got back home last night and Carmen was back! YAY! Sabre and Echo were still there. Carmen told Mommy Cate that Sabre was on "hunger strike," but as soon as Carmen gave me some food Sabre ate all his. My brothers and I played really hard for 3 hours before we finally went to sleep.
So I'm okay now, and home with Carmen. If anyone could please tell Mommy Cate that it's not nice to trap huskies, I'd appreciate it.

I gotta go call the humane society to save me from the drowning place now before Carmen gets back!
So, this morning Carmie put me outside while she did stuff with Mommy Claire. Well, my brothers always tease me cause I look different. They say I'm the white headed stepchild of the family. So I looked at the red clay in the yard and thought, "AHA! I can make myself RED like them!"
I did pretty good, got almost half myself their color, and dug a really cool deep hole while I was at it. Then Carmen saw me and yelled.
Next thing I know I'm being hauled up and she took a picture of me before taking me to the drowning spot. She calls it a bathtub, but I know what water does. It drowns huskies! Luckily I fought really hard and I'm strong enough now to not be drowned. However, she took my red off!!!
So yeah, I think I'm in trouble. *sigh*
If anyone knows how to make the red stay on without the drowning spot removing it, please email me.

I'm really sad. I don't really like eating right now, because I think we should be out looking for her. Echo and Sabre told me they can track her. They used to do that for a job. But they can't get out of the house and yard to do it. Echo keeps trying. Mommy Claire always stays home with us, while Mommy Cate goes to work every day. We don't know what to do without her.
Echo is so sad. He's Mommy Claire's special boy, like Sabre is Mommy Cate's. Echo keeps sleeping at the top of the stairs, where he can see Mommy Claire's bedroom and watch the front door, just in case she appears.
Sabre won't eat unless Mommy Cate is home. Nobody really feels like playing. Mommy Claire left for the hospital Friday morning at 5 to get a tumor removed, but she's still not back. Mommy Cate said she's doing okay, but we won't see her for a few more days still.

I like digging. Red clay is fun. I look awesome with red hair like my mommies. I hate baths.
Gotta run! I know I must have presents SOMEWHERE.

So much to catch up on! Let's see...
Saturday Mommy Cate took me to see Dr. Travis, a nice lady at some place called Mercy Animal Hospital. I told her I wasn't sick, but nooo... she stuffed me in my crate and threw me in the car anyway. The ride itself wasn't too bad. Mom had the radio on and I sang really loud the ENTIRE way there. Mommy called it howling, I think that means I'm really good at it.
Dr. Travis was a nice lady. She petted me and gave me a "special" cookie cause she said something about worms. I dunno. It was a pretty good cookie. She rubbed my belly and said I was a good puppy. Then a really big mosquito BIT me! Thankfully Dr. Travis knew right where it stung me and scratched it for me. Mommy said something about being good with shots. I dunno what that means, but I hope Dr. Travis makes sure no more big bugs are there to bite me next time.
So, this weekend Mommy Cate said she was tired of my wiggling when she carried me down the stairs outside, and after I showed her I could run up them myself she decided that I could learn how to go up and down. Our stairs are about 8' tall. You go down some and then you have a nice big place to lay in the sun. Then you go down more and you're on the ground!
Mommy put a halter on me. She said I can be a big girl and do it myself as long as she has a leash on my halter and can keep me from falling. A couple of times she let me go down the last few steps on my own. I learned that if you jump from the third step it doesn't feel real good. Sabre jumped from the second so I tried that and I splatted on my chin. So now I just do a BIG jump from the first step for style.
After 3 days of making sure I was okay, I decided this morning to show Mommy Claire I was big enough on my own. So when she opened the door to let my brothers out, I zipped out really fast and surprised her! I waited for Sabre at the "landing" and had him walk down with me. Then I peed and went up a few stairs and waited for my big brother Sabre to escort me back up. He's really sweet. Mommy Claire was just shaking her head and looking shocked but I'm pretty sure she's proud of me!
This is me on my new stairs. I'm the queen of the world!
So, I got a lot more to talk about but right now I think Sabre needs me to play tug of war, so BYE!!!!
Oh yeah, and a big husky howl to my brother Ozzie!
Thursday, October 23, 2008
Hahahaha. The mommies kept saying they wanted me to sleep ALL night. So I am sorta. I do wake up and ask if they're still there at 3am, but I don't have to go out now, so I just go back to sleep.
But Mommy Claire wants me to sleep during the day too? HAH! I got non-stop HUSKYPOWER now!
I don't know why Mommy Claire and Sabre and Echo are all crying together in the corner.
By the way, I'm being tortured! Mommy Cate bought a "play-yard" for me outside so Mommy Claire could do things like "eat and stuff and just have five minutes, just five minutes of peace and quiet!" during the day. But I'm in JAIL! NOT fair. Someone call the humane society please, I'm being abused!
Wednesday, October 22, 2008
Mommy Claire gave me a new name! My new name is Rocketbutt. I think it's pretty funny. I'm really fast, and now I've figured out that if one of the mommies has me outside that they have to catch me to make come inside!! It's a great way to exercise your humans, and really fun!
The mommies have been working on clearing out small trees and stuff on the small fence. They just bought this house 3 weeks before they got me, so they still have a lot of work to do. I'm a big strong helper, so I pitched in. I won't say I did ALL the hard work, but pictures pretty much speak for themselves:
Friday, October 17, 2008
Mommy Cate tried to block the way with a box the other night. I ran real fast and tried to jump through the little space at the top. I got stuck in midair with my belly on the box. OOF. I couldn't touch the ground with my back paws, and my front legs and head were stuck Superman style through the front. Mean Mommy Cate was laughing really hard while she unsqueezed me, but I got her back by attacking that box of hers. Mommy Claire tried to block me out yesterday too, but I'm just THAT good. Can't touch this!
Mommy Claire told Mommy Cate I go 2000 miles per hour! I'm super fast! Glad she realizes what a big strong girl I am :D
Sabre and I are now best buddies. We play all the time. I have a new fun thing to do! I climb on his back from one side and then slide down to the floor on the other! It's SOOOO much fun. I never get tired of it.
Oh yeah, and let me tell you about my GREAT thing this morning! This is HUGE! Mommy Cate was getting dressed real quick while she thought we were all in the kitchen, but I snuck by and guess what? I climbed the stairs to the second floor all by myself!!!!
Mommy Cate was running around calling my name - it was SOOO funny. I hid upstairs and laughed and laughed. She had no idea I was hiding at the TOP of the stairs. She didn't think I could make it all the way up there. So she told Sabre to 'Find Dief!' cause he's a search dog and knows my name now. So stupid stinky Sabie came up the stairs to tell on me. But mom still didn't believe I was up there so she called Sabre back down. I think she was getting pretty upset so I came down. She saw me coming down (I was almost down to the bottom!) and she never even said what a super strong girl I am. Oh well, at least I know now I have a WHOLE NOTHER HOUSE at the top to explore!!!
Wednesday, October 15, 2008
First - some pictures! This picture is the three of us. The boys are sleeping, and I'm planning my next attack. I have to do this with my eyes closed so I can keep the element of surprise:
This is my picture where I caught my brother Echo. Mommy Claire wouldn't let me string him upside down like those fish pictures, so I had to go for the traditional hunter pose:
So anyway, what I learned yesterday:
#1 - I have mastered the "go outside" command. I figured out that as long as I don't pee in the house, and I at least pee a little outside, I can make the moms carry me down the stairs several times a day so I can play outside and drag small trees around the yard.
#2 - Oh yeah, I made a killer new game! It's called German Shepherd Springboard and it is soooo much fun. Check this out. What you need for the game is an escape plan (like my small secret passage behind the couch that separates the office from the living room), a German Shepherd brother that is either sleeping or just about to fall asleep (you need them to be REALLY still for this), and a good long area to build up speed in a run. Go to your starting place, pretend you're about to go to sleep, then launch yourself at FULL SPEED at your brother and jump so you land right on his back and then jump again from that point. You'll go REALLY high in the air!! Make sure you give a little WOOO HOOOO yell while you're in the air for extra cool points. You'll land a little hard, so you'll lose a few seconds while you pick yourself up. Plan for that. Next, run super duper fast to your escape route so your brother can't catch you and tell you off. Hahahahaha. I just LOVE this game!!
#3 - Mommy Cate has changed my name. For some reason my name is now Diefno! I don't get it. Silly mommy.
#4 - A super cool trick is to wait until Mommy Claire is taking a break from watching me and doing stuff on her computer while Mommy Cate is far enough away that she can't catch me. This is a sneak attack so you have to pretend you're gonna go to sleep, then explode into a super duper fast run, dive under Mommy Claire's desk, grab the mouse cable with your mouth, and keep running as fast as you can! Okay, it hurts a little when the mouse slams against the wall and it flips you on your back, but Mommy Claire's face is SOOO funny that it's worth it!!
Gotta go, Sabre's just about to fall asleep and I see some potential springboard action!
Tuesday, October 14, 2008
Mommy Claire is sitting on the floor crying real quiet now. Silly mommy. I bet she needs me to bite her toes or something.
Gotta go do my job now!! Sabre's almost asleep. I'm gonna go wake him up by sneak attacking him!!
My new alphas are Cate and Claire, and I also live with two really big German Shepherds. They're both smelly boys, and they're named Echo and Sabre. I thought people might be entertained by my adventures, so I started this blog.
This is me:
This is my oldest brother in the pack, Echo, drowning me with his 5 foot tongue again:
Echo and I get along great, although he says he really doesn't like me biting his tail. It's fun, so I'm not sure why he doesn't like it. I can usually get a few good jump attacks in on him before he catches me. I run fast and can escape through small places he can only get his nose.
This is my other brother Sabre, who keeps telling me he's confused. He says I smell like a dog but I don't look like one or even sound like a real dog. I howl and talk at him, but he just keeps looking at me funny like he doesn't understand. I guess I need to learn to speak German or something. I think he's still trying to tell if I'm some really cool new toy. He stepped on my paw this morning, which really hurt because he's a heavy butt. I growled at him and pounced him and play-bowed twice trying to get him to take me on so I could show him I was tough, but I think he felt bad about making me cry. I hate looking like a sissy, so I'll have to beat him up when he's not looking. This is a picture of him staring at me trying to figure out where my batteries go. I don't know what batteries are, but I told him I don't think I have any. He just gave me that look again:
I don't think he's too smart.
I've lived with them for 4 days now, I left my old family on Saturday. A lot has happened since then, but Claire needs to feed me now cause my tummy hurts.
