Search & Rescue Ray Ban

Yesterday, I lost a great pair of Ray Ban sunglasses on a dog walk. Since my search dog, Loki, is on the down low recovering from TPLO surgery, I couldn't ask him to help find them. Both dogs are informally trained at finding objects scented like me on our trail walks since I'm always losing […]

Husky Garden Humor

"I think therefor, I Yam," laughs Juno as she mocks my plans for a vegetable garden this year. "Hard work doesn't harm anyone, but I do not want to take any chances." Juno bestows her garden work ethic as she seistas between the magnolia tree and flower bed. Meanwhile, my own work ethic is summed up […]

Sabbatical

"Cracker's Log 0062016. The humans call this a sabbatical. I'm not allowed to work or patrol the property. I may as well not be allowed to breathe."

BioMat is the New Drug

"Cracker's Log 0022016. I made it through the harrowing night. It was touch and go as I didn't have all of my cracker faculties, but I was able to whine and pace the bed room enough times to convince the human to leave the comfort of her bed and take me back to the office […]

Crackers are not Bulletproof

Loki and I had butterflies as we waited for him to be admitted on Thursday morning. His surgery went well. By 3:00 the doctor called me and said he behaved very well before surgery for all the ladies and the doctor. It was a completely torn cruciate ligament. His meniscus is intact. He has no arthritis. […]

TPLO for the Cracker

Well, it's official. The cracker has actually torn his cruciate ligament and not just strained it. I think early on it was hard to tell because he'd get better at times. But I had a feeling it would go this way.

New Sprout in our Vegetable Bed

Oh Look! Our new vegetable bed sprouted a husky and we didn't even plant any seeds! Mr. Wild Dingo warned me not to water it because "the last thing we need is more huskies." Don't worry Internet, I already offered Juno a pair of his flip-flops for that kind of sass. Ps. This is a […]

Spring Cleaning

"Hey Big Boy, Mom says after our walkies she's gonna give you a bath. But not me. Because I'm a husky. And huskies are awesome and don't need baths because our furs reject dirt and so we're never dirty." "Princepessa, don't mess with my mentals. That's not even remotely funny." It's true. Huskies never get […]

He's a Banana Head with Cracked Out Moves

Big Sigh of Relief! X-rays and vet exam show the cracker (who's been nursing a back leg owie for weeks) does NOT have a torn cruciate ligament, nor does he have arthritis, bone cancer or any bone fragmentation.

A Cracker's Core Power

355/365 Crossfit ain't got nothin' on a cracker's core power!  The other day, he took care of his business (#2) while balancing on only one front paw. Sorry Internet, I had no camera to catch the action. You'll just have to take my word for it. He happened to choose a spot with a bunch of […]

Juno's Roar

"My name is Juno. Hear me ROAR!"  (In a barely audible whisper: "roar.") Juno rarely barks. When she does, we giggle. Because it's an adorable, wee, high-pitched beep that doesn't seem to fit a tough Siberian husky. Juno is likely the sweetest dog I've ever known. The only things that should fear her are buttered baguettes, live chickens and moles. […]

On to Redwoodier Pastures

After 23 years with the same company, Mr. Wild Dingo is ditching the rat race morning commute to begin a new opportunity where two of his office mates will be furrier and the other, although a whiny Lymie, will keep him healthy with home cooked lunches and green smoothies. He'll still be traveling 50-60% but […]

The Perfect Weather

Perfect Weather - 330/365 Is it crazy that I love cold, foggy rainy days? Mr. Wild Dingo would be very happy if we never had rain, but ever since Lyme hit me, I've longed for long dark cold winters. Although some days are still too warm for me (in the 50's or 60's), there have […]

Physical Therapy
