Sierra's Scoop

Happy Tuesday everyone, it's Sierra! There I was, napping on my favorite couch when all of a sudden...click, click, click. The photo shoot began. Don't you just hate when this happens? I was having the best dream? Want me to fill you in? I was running in the snow, chasing after tons of birdies. After that I went inside and found the biggest pile of steak and steak bones. Then for dessert we had ice cream and donuts. Click, click! I hated waking up from that dream.

Can't you see that I'm very sleepy, Mommy? No more click clicks, please.

Plumbing Problems

Just behind me there, in the street, lies the problem. Thank goodness Daddy has a friend who owns a plumbing snake.

Daddy says it should get the job done.

Let's get to work Daddy!

P.S. After almost 3 hours of trying to cut past the blockage, Daddy decided to try again tomorrow. Please keep your paws crossed, friends.

We're still waiting for winter to swing in to full gear. But Mommy and Daddy are already thinking about our 2012 Garden. Daddy says it takes a lot of research, planning, and preparation long before the first seed hits the dirt. I'm hear to help, Daddy. What can I do?




Isn't it too soon to be seeing our little squirrel friends?

Waiting for snacks

Daddy likes to have a snack almost every night. Can you blame him? There are so many yummy foodies out there. This is how I look when I'm watching, ehem, patiently waiting for a yummy morsel. I have to jump up on the couch to be next to Mommy. This ensures that I'll get something.

Sierra waits patiently next to Daddy. Daddy loves throwing the treats to Sierra. She's the best catcher.

How about you? What do you do while waiting for a treat from your pawrents?

Sierra's Scoop

Happy Tuesday, everyone, it's Sierra! Do you like the new art piece I'm in. I call it Eskie on the bridge. Daddy took this photo last week at Lake Tahoe. Usually we just run across it to get to the beach, but this time Daddy made me stop for a photo shoot. I hope you like it.

Happy Chinese New Year!!!

Even though we didn't have any Korean food, we still wanted to celebrate the Lunar New Year. Since Mommy is part Korean, we like to celebrate all the traditional Korean holidays. This year is the year of the Dragon. (Mommy is a Dragon). We made a yummy Apple Sharlotka to celebrate. We hope this year brings happiness and peace and most of all love to everyone.

Are you ready for some football?

Well it's not every year that your hometown team is in the playoffs so of course you have to root for them to win. Unfortunately cheering on the Niners didn't seem to do a thing for their playing ability. We love game day because there is always lots of snacks for everyone to enjoy. We were sad that the NIners didn't win. Mommy said it was ok because she thought the coach of the Giants looked like a really nice man. Did any of you watch the games today?

Tahoe fun

While Kobe was missing, we were a little too sad to post how much we fun we all had. Kobe loves playing with Sierra. Daddy always says that Sierra has some Boxer in her. What do you think?

Kobe is OK!!!!!!

Mommy went to Tahoe with Auntie Kim and Cousin Josh tonight and when they got to the cabin Kobe was just standing at the end of the driveway. He must have come back after we all left last Sunday and waited for our return. After about 30 minutes of keeping his distance, Kobe just walked up to Josh. Cousin Josh quickly grabbed him and carried him to the warmth Mommy's truck.
Do you remember the big white dog named Lexus we see every time we go to Tahoe? Well her Mommy cared for Kobe and brought him a dogloo, plastic kennel, and blankets for shelter (temperatures dropped to below zero this week). He dined on bacon and tuna too. Lexus' Mommy is one cool lady. We are very grateful that there were people looking out for Kobe all week. We are beyond happy and are so thankful for all of your positive thoughts and prayers for Kobe.

This is funny but...

Daddy said I'm not a little Husky, I'm fat. I don't feel overweight but my sister Sierra might be. She's not nearly as fluffy but weighs the same as I do. I say it's time for her to get more exercise and maybe smaller portions. Daddy said that it might be time for me to go on a diet too. Hmmmmm...I don't know how I feel about this.

Sierra's Scoop

Hi everyone, it's Sierra. I have been thinking a lot about last weekend. Lake Tahoe is always such a fun place to visit. The water is so cold that it tastes like the bottled stuff. Daddy tossed a stick into the Lake to see if I would fetch it. I could only go in chest deep before I started to shiver. We are still so sad and confused why Cousin Kobe ran away. His loving family is still waiting to hear about his well being and appreciate all your positive thoughts.

Lake Tahoe Recap

We love seeing Alexis every time we go to Lake Tahoe. She hangs out in front of her cabin all day.

Come on, Kobe, I'll show the way around Lake Tahoe.

Kobe did not like the water one bit.

This is was the closest Daddy

was able to get to Kobe.

Hi Miss Newfie, it's a pleasure to meet you. You sure are a beauty.

P.S. Auntie Kim hasn't heard any news about Kobe. Please keep your paws crossed for him. A big winter storm is headed to Lake Tahoe on Wednesday.

Please say a prayer...

...for Cousin Kobe. We had a pawesome weekend in Lake Tahoe. Although there wasn't any snow, we had plenty of fun hiking and playing. By Sunday afternoon we were in get ready to go home mode. Auntie Kim was doing laundry. Daddy was bringing up firewood from downstairs. Mommy was sweeping the deck. Kobe accidentally went down the stair and took off. Mommy and Daddy ran for him but it was too late. He stayed close to our cabin but wouldn't let anyone get close enough to catch him. (We don't know Kobe's whole story but we know that he's suffered some sort of abuse...physical or emotional, we don't know). This went on for almost 6 hours. We tried EVERYTHING...we all went for a walk and of course Kobe followed but again, he wouldn't let any of the humans get close enough to catch him. Auntie Kim and Uncle Sean left in the early evening due to work responsibilities tomorrow. We stayed until 8pm but because it was dark, it was just too hard to see where Kobe was going. And would you believe that it started snowing as we were leaving? So please keep your paws crossed that Kobe is safe and warm. Please also pray that he will let someone get close enough to catch him. We are all eagerly waiting for the call. A three hour drive home always seems to go by very quickly. But as Daddy said, when you're sad, three hours seems like forever.

Where's the snow?

I'm not trying to be a party pooper but we came all the way to Lake Tahoe to play in the snow but so far all we could find was a small patch of melting ice. Our new Cousin Kobe is here and we've been lounging around a lot today. The middle of January at Lake Tahoe should not look like this. Where is all the fluffy stuff? I want to go climb a mountain. I bet I can find some snow if we go for a long hike. Come on everybody, let's go.

...for someone to notice that I need a snack. Excuse the blurry photo but Daddy thought it was hilarious when he walked into the hallway and saw me in the kitchen, waiting. Even when Mommy and Daddy are out of sight, I sit and I wait, patiently for my snack.

Sierra's Scoop

Happy Tuesday, everyone. It's Sierra! I finally broke free from that little gorilla's grip. I still see him hanging around from time to time but I don't dare go near him. I sure love my worm though. He has rattlers and squeakers in his head and tail so it doesn't matter which end I bite on. Teddy said worms will live even after you rip one in two. Hmmm...I don't believe that for one second Teddy Bear. So stay away from my red wormie.

Mommy saw...

...this the other day and LOVED it. Isn't it so true?! When we look in the mirror we see a Great Pyrenees. What do you see when you look in the mirror?

A wonderful walkie

We all went for a nice long walkie today. The weather was perfect...a little cold, just the way I like it. Mommy said it looks just like a beautiful autumn day because of all the colorful dry leaves.

Daddy has been doing the rain dance all week in hopes of sending some much needed winter storms to the high Sierras. There has been talk of going to Tahoe soon. It looks like I'm going to have to learn that rain dance too because Daddy's not the only one who wants to romp around in white stuff!

Wedding cake blues

Mommy and Daddy went to a wedding today. They were having a good time with their friends at the but had to come home before the cake was cut. We told Mommy and Daddy it would've been just fine with us if they were late for our dinner. That would've meant cake for dessert. We can't wait until the next wedding...cake.

Did you know...

...that California is having the warmest winter, ever? Ok, maybe not ever but it's unusually warm. Last year there was about 150 inches of snow. This year there is less than five inches. What is going on? I've been waiting and waiting for the snow. Since it's not coming, I'm going to nap and Mommy's nap and dream of running through the snow.

Sierra's Scoop

Happy Tuesday, everyone...it's Sierra! Can someone please tell me why this gorilla is on my back? I was lying here playing with my worm stuffie when suddenly Teddy Bear's new gorilla latched onto my neck. I tried to shake it off. Then I rolled over on it but it's still there. I am ready to rip and tear this thing to pieces if I could just get free. TEDDY! Quick! I need help!

Monday, January 2, 2012

After all the...

fun with family and friends and feasting on scrumptious goodies, it was very nice to nap today. You see, when we are away from home we do not nap. Mommy and Daddy have tried to figure out why...(we'll never tell them, of course). We don't want to miss out on any of the fun that's going on around us. So today, we took a much needed nap. How did you spend today?

Happy New Year Take 2

We spent the very first day of 2012 with Mommy's side of the family. Look at this feast. Grandma really outdid herself.

After dinner, it was time to go outside and sit by the fire. The humans roasted some marshmallows.

And ate some ice cream. I guess there is something magical about eating ice cream when it's cold outside.

We can't imagine a more pawfect day than being with family...and spending it outside (that was my favorite part).
