Sunday Snout Out!

Just a little Sunday SNOUT OUT to all my Eskie, non-Eskie, and feline peeps out there reading my blog on this lovely Sunday afternoon!

It's the last day of the Olympics. It's Team USA vs. Canada in hockey right now! GO TEAM USA!! (Did you know Canadian Eskies say "aboot" and not "about"! What's that all aboot/about?!?

As my human Daddy is a born and (non-Eskie-bred) Chicagoan (he wanted to be Bobby Hull when he grew up), he's torn. There are Blackhawks on both teams!! But he's hopeful that Team USA will triumph! WOOF!

My human Daddy is also going to make my human Mommy "Lobster Macaroni and Cheese" for dinner tonight. I can't have any of that. Grrrrr. But I'll bet you that Gromit will be hovering around the thawing lobster. He's the only feline I know that gets to eat both crab and lobster. There are felines living out in the Northeast that don't get to eat lobster or crab.

My human Daddy also smoked some pulled pork over the weekend. I at least got to have a few pieces of that before he poured barbecue sauce over it. YUM! My human Daddy is a very, very, very good cook.

Gromit Thoughts

Gromit here. I pointed out to Tegan that cats read her blog too...not just dogs.

A cat would have zero interest in a "bink". Here is my favorite thing...well, it used to be. I'm neary 12 and I don't play quite as much as I used to but I still like to sleep with this mouse. Yawn... sun is coming out....I have to go lie down in it. Later my mouse friends.

And now, here’s your movie quote trivia of the day featuring a plethora of the use of the word plethora:

Jefe: I have put many beautiful pinatas in the storeroom, each of them filled with little surprises.
El Guapo: Many pinatas?
Jefe: Oh yes, many!
El Guapo: Would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?
Jefe: A what?
El Guapo: A *plethora*.
Jefe: Oh yes, you have a plethora.
El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?
Jefe: Why, El Guapo?
El Guapo: Well, you told me I have a plethora. And I just would like to know if you know what a plethora is. I would not like to think that a person would tell someone he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.
Jefe: Forgive me, El Guapo. I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education. But could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?

A prize of Eskie hugs for the first person to name this movie. I gave you a lot to go on. It's easy.

P.S. There were no Eskies in this movie. Grrrrrrrrr.

Your Mommy is sooooo happy you found a home, Maya!!!

I hope all of my little Eskie/Husky puppies are having as good of a life as little Maya is having!!!

Well, I say she's little, but she looks bigger than me. WOOF! I'm still your Mommy!!!

Official Counting MY Blessings Day

Goodbye Daddy

We're saddened today to read that Ceasar's precious Daddy passed away at 16 on Feb 19th. Thank you to Ceasar and Daddy for teaching and training my parents to be better dog parents.

They have learned lots from you. It was especially helpful that you showed them not to worry that I'm such a growly's just how I communicate. I know Mom was worried I would be aggressive.

Daddy, you will be missed.

We Are Your Dogs - THE SONG

So without anyone knowing, I borrowed my Daddy’s TARDIS and made a quick trip to pick up some of my Eskie, Canine, Feline and Celebrity friends. While our humans were schleefing, we all got together in a recording studio and made a song just for us Eskies. (And any pet, to be honest.) My only rule was that all egos were left at the door. I think we succeeded. Please sing along!!!!

There comes a time
When we must heed nature’s call
When bipeds must come together as one
There are Eskies starving
And it’s time to lend us some kibbles
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on
Pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon fill our bowls
We are all a part of
Your great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need

We are your dogs
We are your Eskies
We are the ones who make a furry day
So let's start barking
There's a choice we're making
We’re charming human lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

Send us your treats
So we’ll know that someone cares
And our lives will be stronger and free
As you have shown us by rescuing our lives
So we all must lend a helping paw

We are your dogs
We are your Eskies
We are the ones who make a furry day
So let's start barking
There's a choice we're making
We’re charming human lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

When you're down and out
There seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There's no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well, let us realize
That a change will only come
When we stand together with treats

We are your dogs
We are your Eskies
We are the ones who make a furry day
So let's start barking
There's a choice we're making
We’re charming human lives
It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

Cleaning Dishes With Cold Water

This is for all the germ conscious folks that worry about using cold water to clean.

John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of Saskatchewan

After spending a great evening chatting the night away, the next morning John’s grandfather prepared breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast. However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate, and questioned his grandfather asking, ’Are these plates clean?’

His grandfather replied, ’They’re as clean as cold water can get ‘em. Just you go ahead and finish your meal, Sonny!’

For lunch the old man made hamburgers. Again, John was concerned about the plates, as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, ’Are you sure these plates are clean?’

Without looking up the old man said, ’I told you before, Sonny, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get ‘em. Now don’t you fret, I don’t want to hear another word about it!’

Later that afternoon, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he was leaving, his grandfather’s dog started to growl, and wouldn’t let him pass.

John yelled and said, ‘Grandfather, your dog won’t let me get to my car’.

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching on TV, the old man shouted! ’Coldwater, go lay down now, yah hear me!’
"Thank you! I'm Tegan! I'm here all week! Try the veal!"

He Said Sit!

Mommy and Daddy think this is soooooooooooo funny. Well, let me just say that I don't find it funny AT ALL. Of course, I am a very good girl who would NEVER do this inside the house. Did I mention that I'm perfect??!!

Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On!!!!!

OMG as Mommy would beauty sleep was interrupted by an EARTHQUAKE this morning!!! Now, I know I have blog buddies in CA and maybe you're used to this but here in ILLINOIS this was ODD! I tried to calm down Mommy but I was scared too!! The whole house shook.....the bed was moving, the windows rattled and the glass shower doors banged. Whew! Glad it all stopped.....I was a little afraid to go back to sleep thinking maybe I had caused the shaking but all is well now.
