    Hey Masquers and Everyone–A very early good morning and a Happy Day Before Easter. I hope your Saturday goes very, very well.

    Good morning, everyone! Hoppy Easter to all on the morrow as well. BSD, safe travels. Diane, good Saturday 🙂 Finally saw the “eyebrows” video. Mom couldn’t figure why she missed it…DUH..Tuesday at Club Med. And she said when she could read the blog there, most of the attachments wouldn’t open 🙁 Mom has promised us a special Egg Day tomorrow, wonder what she means?
    Have a satisfied Saturday 🙂

    Good morning. Happy Day before Easter to Everyone.

    As soon as it gets a little warmer outside we are going to work on hanging 3 new planters from the wood fence. They are the black wrought iron variety with coco netting.

    Hope ML’s family gathering goes well today.

    When is Zeus coming to live with you Howlers? I thought Staff had a good idea at the possibly name change, but we do like Zeus.

    OH: Zeus is a handsome fellow! If he is happy with the name, why change it? Now, if only Kat and Meashka don’t “hen peck” him 🙂

    Wose, there was a failed attempt to deliver Mr. Carrot last night at 5:11 p.m. You may have a sticker on your door.

    Leaving soon. Shopping for Easter cads for the Grands, and looking for some bushes for the back yard. Serviceberry is on our wish list, as well as some Variegated Red Twig Dogwood for the bottom of the yard.

    I wish I could keep Masquers, and Belle Starr here forever! I am starting to feel a bit better. I know that it is the wonderful pawflexogy that Masquers gives! and the belly rubs I give to Belle Starr. It is so lovely to have sweet, kool jazz to lull me to sleep. ahhhhhh

    O’Howlers, Congratulations on your new family member! Zeus is very handsome and fits in well with the two lovely redheads.

    LouLou, Oh, no! There is no slip on my door. Grizz and I went out yesterday evening, so I guess the post man came right after we had left. GAH! I don’t want Mr. Carrot to get lost!

    Hi everyone. Mama is getting ready to take Callie to ClubMed to see her fan club….oh, and Gramp too.

    We are so happy for Zeus, coming to such a grand home. We thought that maybe, just maybe, if he wants to fit in with Meashka and Katarina, maybe he could change his name to Zeusikov. Just a thought.

    Have a great day everyone.

  11. Wose-the small and meek
    11:04 am on April 19th, 2014

    T&G, hope that Gramps is tip-top soon. Callie is the best medicine he could have. I would love to see the looks on the faces of the staff at Club Med when Callie comes in.

  12. Herd of Hounds
    11:04 am on April 19th, 2014

    T&G and OH, or maybe Dr. Zeusvago. Silly HOH. We still think that is he has no issues from his former life, go with Zeus.

    Good morning everyone.

    The man who lives in this house is missing his family dinner which is today but I will be there to represent him. I am off to the store for pecans to make tarts. It is nice enough to ride the bike.

    Thinking of ML and BooBear’s family. Also Gramps, who is cheering everyone up with Callie’s visits to Club Med.

    Barb&Maggie: Variegated Red Twig Dogwood. That sounds lovely. I had to say it out loud.

    O”Howlers: I vote Zeusikov.

  14. Belle Starr
    11:54 am on April 19th, 2014

    I vote for changing Zeus’ name to Bellestarriswonderfulikov.

  15. Wose-the small and meek
    12:15 pm on April 19th, 2014

    I think that is a wonderful name!

    I am wondering about Wolfie….

  16. dawson
    12:58 pm on April 19th, 2014

    BelleStarr: You are wonderful!

    Wose: I didn’t know Masquers did pawflexology! I may have to borrow that cat.

  17. Siber-H
    1:39 pm on April 19th, 2014

    I vote for Zeusikov.

    Howdy! The ‘rents just got home and have a million and one things to do. They still must do their usual Saturday morning(???) farm chores. And then they must put out invisible fence flags all around our 16 acres, and make more eggs for Easter, and bring down the big crate, and the outside kennel that is really a chicken tractor, and Dima’s eating table, and and and. The list goes on and on. We are tired already.
    Zeusikov? Is that really a name? We kinda like it. That way, he could still be called the familiar Zeus, and Mom could tell people that he really does have a Russian name, not a Greek name. Of course, there is also the always popular Bellestarriswonderfulikov. We are drawn to that one…pondering…

    Hi all!!! First I want to apologize for not being around much lately. A month ago my sister Taffy had some type of stroke like episode so Mom had to spend a few weeks tending to her, trying to figure out what happened, but then she had additional episodes so we had to let my sister go to the Rainbow Bridge two weeks ago. Nobody expected me to still be here and expected me to be first but I knew I had to stay strong for Mom so I have been fighting with all my Sibe mite and am still hanging on!! We celebrated my life yesterday at the Husky rescue and pushed the O’Howlers over the edge to Zeus when Mom starting sending her pics of the stunning, stoic, and regal boy! We are so excited that Zeus will be joining our extended pack and that I was able to meet him!! But as you can tell from this photo, he knows who the man is, and is following behind me (far back) like all of the other young pups!! Welcome Zeusikov, aka Zeus Moose!

    Wose, I see Mr. Carrot has been delivered. I hope you are enjoying him.

    Oh Dawg! Who left the Ipaw where Darah could get her paws on it? That kid has no sense. no how! I for one am glad there is no husky rescue around here or mom’s HOH would be bigger.

    Welcome back, Cherokee, and I’m sorry about your sister…sniff

    LouLou! I saw the mailman just as me and Grizz were going out. I love Mr. Carrot, and I will ask Grizz to take a picture of me with him. I did not know he makes a sound.

    Thank you, LouLou !

    Carrots are very interesting. I hope yours are cleaner than the ones Staff showed me. Enjoy yours Rose.

  27. dawson
    5:24 pm on April 19th, 2014

    Wose: Did the carrot scare the carpola out of you when it started making noise?

    Loulou: I believe you may be growing up a little. It was very sweet of you to get Wose a carrot of her very own.

    Cherokee: That is a great picture of all those beautiful Siberians. Congratulations on getting the most votes yesterday (or was it the day before)? You beat out the young Katrina. Experience counts for something. I’m sorry to hear about your sister.

  28. Wose-the small and meek
    6:10 pm on April 19th, 2014

    Dawson, Hell yeah, that carrot scared me when he made noise.
    And yes, Masquers gives soothing pawflexogy. He is talented at so many things.
    He would make the perfect husband!

    Alice, those carrots look a bit dirty, but once they are cleaned, they sure look like they will be yummy!

    Rio, The game starts at 6:40. One would think they could start at 6 on a Sat.

  31. Tupper and Gilly
    6:46 pm on April 19th, 2014

    Siber – maybe the Powers That Play Baseball are out planting tomatoes until 6:40… tee hee

    we just got to talk to YSAS – he and OTAS are spending Easter with their Zoe, and Martha’s family. What good boys they are.

    Callie likes going to Club Med – Mama brings a pocket full of cookies, and whenever someone wants to pet Callie, Mama slips them a cookie to give her. Hey, Callie is no dumb bunny – Club Med means cookies – heck yes, she wants to go.

    Meanwhile we have still been unsuccessful in our hunt for white chocolate M & M’s. What is the world coming to?

  32. Riö – The Evil Pug

    Whew! We are beat. We had to watch the ‘rents walk all over this here farm, including the fields and the woods and the wetlands, putting up little white flags. This means only one thing. Zeusikov is coming soon.

  36. Barb & Maggie
    7:39 pm on April 19th, 2014

    Barb is back from her outing. She went over and played with Jessica in her garden for a bit too. Planted some cilantro here in our herb planter.

    Ended up buying a Kitty Willow instead of the Dogwoods. Needed something fast growing that likes moisture, so that is what she bought.

    Now Barb is sitting on the patio and grilling a steak and foil wrapped onions. Also having a relaxing glass of wine. Great way to end the day.

    7:43 pm on April 19th, 2014

    Coming soon? Like Teddy and Zeta? A movie? Coming soon to a theatre near you, “Zeusikov, The Story of a Siber and His Quest For a Furever Home”. You’ll cry, you’ll laugh’ you’ll Hooooowl!

    Herbs, Why does your Mama want white chocolate M&M’s? Dawson left some here and Staff, who can’t eat chocolate chocolate, tried them. She said they were icky. Now Reese’s white chocolate peanut butter cups, she says, were great!

  40. Tupper and Gilly
    8:04 pm on April 19th, 2014

    We love the movie synopsis for the coming of Zeusikov! Can’t wait to hear more of his story, and see him join in the fun of the Howling Ones.

  41. Alice M. Johnson
    8:05 pm on April 19th, 2014

    Staff went looking up Kitty willow plants to see what they looked like. Took her a while to remember that their more common name is banned on the blog. grump. What a dork.

    Hello from midtown Manhattan! My sister and I took an hour nap upon arriving and then set out to explore. In 1.5 hours we walked 31 city blocks–more than we intended due to my poor map reading skills and sense of direction. I now wish I had a pan of ice water to soak my poor feet. The tall buildings are interesting and so far so good.

    Happy news on the blog with Wose, Gramps and a new Sibe. Oodles of noodles. Two more days in NYC then off to Turkey on Tuesday. The Hobbit gets around!

    Hobbit in NYC!!! Now, that is exciting.
    Staff, Mom didn’t know what kitty willow plants were either. Youse guys are nerd twins. Heh heh!
    Here is what we know about Zeus: he is 4, going to be 5 in August. He supposedly had a nice family, including a 7-year old boy who he loved. Then there was a new baby with allergies, so poor Zeus got the boot. We don’t understand why they didn’t go by seniority. The baby should have gotten the boot. So we know that he loves kids, like Meashka does. And he loves other dogs. He will need to learn that chickies are off-limits, and T.C. Is in charge. Everything else is a cakewalk.

    Sorry to throw youse guys for a loop with the Kitty Willow comment. We knew we would be moderated otherwise.

    Hobbit sure does get around. Imagine her in the Big Apple. How exciting! Make sure you visit a Turkish bath house while you are on your vacation!

    I will not even claim to be Macy’s mom tonight. I am so p!$$ed off at those dam dogs I can’t even see straight. I brought home a delish bowl of brisket and Filipino rice. I set it on the counter, and when I came back for it there was no sign of it. Finally I found some shredded foil and a cracked plastic bowl. I am so frustrated that I just want to sit and cry, but I have to go tend to the freakin sewer backup in the shower. If anyone needs me, I will be living in a yurt.

  63. Barb & Maggie
    10:59 pm on April 19th, 2014

    ML, Barb agrees with you. Sounds like something that would happen around here, and you know who would be responsible. What a waste of good brisket. That is per Barb, and not per Macy and her girls.

    Off to bed. Busy day tomorrow.

    ML: I think they have yurts in Turkey. The Hobbit sisters may be visiting shortly. (I wish you were having a better night.)

    ML–Aaagh! I won’t add to the frustration with anything about paying off your karma for the next eight years in one night (although you might want to think of it that way). By the time you read this may all be resolved and you enjoying a peaceful and comforting Easter. With really good weather.

    Happy Easter and Egg Day to all!

    O’Howlers, I am happy that Zeusikov has found a forever home with youse guys.
    And I am glad that you recognize TC is in charge !

    LouLou, I love Mr. Carrot! That was a very nice thing you did for me.

    CHobbit. How long are you in the Big Apple?

    Good Easter morning to all. I am working on getting in a church frame of mind this a.m. but I am still….hm…agitated? I brought home a new blanket for Annie’s kennel (from the resale shop, because it wasn’t good enough to sell). It fell apart in the washer and pieces of it have now backed up in the shower as well. I am sure that blanket pieces in the sewer line are not going to help the situation one bit. And the kitchen still smells like my brisket that I didn’t even get to taste…Belle and Macy didn’t get their bedtime cookie last night. I hope they thought about what they did! Heh, as if.

  73. ML
    10:20 am on April 20th, 2014

    Oh, and there are yurts in Texas, believe it or not!

  74. Wose-the small and meek
    10:25 am on April 20th, 2014

    ML, Take a deep, healing breath. The blanket issue will get resolved.
    Remember there are a whole bunch of Plunderer shoulders to lean on, and ears to listen. Everything will get better, you’ll see.

    Happy Easter! I am sending big,big hugs to you, you, you, and lots of love!
