Focus Friday



 All eyes on that darn Tree Rat!!!

Misty:  Do you see it, Timber?

Timber: Yes, it is WAY up there!

Misty:  I will try to reach it.

Timber:  I'll check things out from this side. 


Timber:  Let me do it, Misty.  I am TALLER than you! 


Misty: You are cheating, Timber. You are on your tippy toes!!!


Timber: OK, Misty.  Let's not have a sibling spat.  You climb and I will let you know if he moves!

Merry Monday Marvels with Santa(s)

It was a very busy weekend here with Mom away most of the weekend for another big dance weekend for Ms. C., our dancerella.  Ms. C. had another outstanding performance, placed third for her new solo, and won another scholarship.  Congrats to our little star!!!

Meanwhile, there was a bit of holiday decorating going on around here.  We thought we would share with you a part of Mom's Santa collection.


She sure does have a lot of Santas.  We are hoping that means lots of pressies for us:)



Here is a close-up.



I am sure you were all excited to see me without my cone in that photo above. Sadly it was for the photo op only.  I wouldn't leave that darn scab alone, so I am re-coned when not under Mom's watchful eye.  BUT I am a happy boy to be able to go out in the yard by myself, sniff around the shrubs and trees, and do a bit of running.  It sure does feel good. Hopefully the Cone Fairy will make that scab disappear for good soon.

Many thanks to Ms. Ann of Zoolatry for our beautiful holiday look!!!

Pee Ess - Mom has a video of Ms. C.'s dance if you would like to see it, just drop Mom an email at theoppack AT gmail DOT com.  She isn't allowed to post it here per dance studio rules.

Friday News Flash!!!!!!!

Na-na Na-na Boo Boo - you were WRONG, Mom!!!!!!!  I was RIGHT!!!!!!!  And I have to thank all my pals out there for your good vibes for good news. AND HERE IT IS:

I can be a dog again - I can be a Siberian Husky again - I am FREE to run and play.   The nice man surgeon Dr. H. said I need to get out and enjoy life again.  Running is going to help build the muscles in my gimpy leg and help me heal even more.



Oh, Happy Day!!!  My first time in the backyard in 8 1/2 weeks.  My leash is attached so Mom can catch me if I get too wild and crazy:)

I can also go without my cone since Dr. H. says what is left of my scab is very superficial.  If I continue to lick it, the cone has to go back on. But Mom can try using some of yucky-tasting Bitter Orange to keep me from bothering the area.




Mom used this concoction on Angel Phantom's tail when he had that nasty tumor and sore that would not go away.  It worked well with him, so here's hoping I can say the same thing.





Happy Days are here again!!!  It was a very brief run for me because I tend to go crazy with those two wild boys next door.  But that's OK.  I just love being outside and free.




You know the Momster is a worry wart and she is also very cautious. So at least for starters, I will go out in the yard without Misty and Timber just to give me a chance to see how well I can manage.  Slowly she will let the two youngsters join me.  As for the cone, caution always wins over compassion with her.  She is going to let me go without the cone when she is here with me and put it on when she leaves the house and overnight for a few more days.  I can live with that. I am just beyond overjoyed with today's clearance!!! For my first time outside she left the cone on me.  But when I got inside, she did take it off.


Awww, c'mon, Mom - can't I stay out a little longer?



And can we come out too?



OK, let's go in but you promised me a tasty treat!!! 



Let's celebrate together!!!



Happy Me!!!

Woos - Lightning - I AM BACK!!!

Thinking Thursday


I am thinking that Mom HAS to be wrong.

 I have my appointment with the surgeon tomorrow morning, rescheduled again from tonight.  Mom says she doesn't think I am going to get "Cone Clearance" because every time that little scab falls off, a new one forms.  If you look closely, you might be able to see it.  AND she says she thinks I am still too gimpy for me to get "Off Leash Clearance" either.  Bah Humbug seems to fit how I feel about her thoughts.


So here I am shouting out to you to send lots of good vibes that Mom's thoughts are way off base.  I am so wanting to get out in the yard in that snow before the warm temps melt it all away.
