Make-up Monday

It's been a few days since we posted. It has been so terribly warm here that we haven't been able to motivate our secretary to help us with a post. We have all just been sitting around and sleeping while we wait for the heat to go away.

One of our newer blogger furiends Cocorue gave us this beautiful award.

"The only rule for this award is that to accept it, display it proudly on your blog for all the bloggy world to see your greatness and/or pass it on to other bloggers as you see fit..."

Thank you, Cocorue, and we see fit to pass it on to all of our devoted readers.

It seemed like forever since we had a walk, so we just stared the Momster down in hopes she would get the message.

It really doesn't look THAT bad out there, Mom.

Want me to get your sneakers?

I could really use some exercise.

So she let us outside and all I could do was find a hot spot in the sun. (Please excuse the brown grass, leftover memories of sweet Dakota:)

Thunder decided to check things out before coming off the deck.

C'mon down here, TD, it's shady.

See anything good out there, Phantom?

Not much doing out back. I think it's time to go in and bug her again.

Open the door please, Mom - we want to go for a walk.

I'm closing my eyes and wishing really hard for a walk.

Looks like it's working.

Off we go.

Whew, it's pretty hot out here, can we take a short rest? We know you really need it, Mom.

Guess we have to admit the air machine makes it feel really good inside.

Thanks for the walk, Mom.

Yeah, same here.


My favorite resting spot at the top of the stairs to the basement. If you look closely, you can see some of my fur is finally growing back.

Woos, the OP Pack

Pee Ess from Mom: Some of you have asked how Phantom is doing - overall pretty well. He gave us a scare when he refused to eat for almost three full days starting last Thursday. He ate nothing despite my many attempts to entice him with all sorts of tasty bribes. Finally on Sunday he started to eat. I will never figure him out.

What gorgeous photos! we're glad to hear Phantom is OK.


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Woo are supposed to figure us out!

We are Sibes!

Khongrats on your award! It is furry pretty! That Khokhorue is a khutie!

Oh yes...woo sent us YOUR weather! Mom MADE me khome in and she's already told me we won't be going fur a walk until after 7 or so!

She took some pikhs last night after Merdie and I got bakhk from our walk - she looked at them and saw some BIG tongues!

Thank dog fur the husky khool air machine!

You guys are sure lookin' great, today. Mom's tryin' to stick her arm thru the monitor to pet you, but you and I both know that won't work. I canNOT believe you persuaded your mom to take you out for a walk in the extreme HOTS! It's gotta be those Sibe eyes.

The Army of Four said...

Wow! I like that "closing your eyes and wishing real hard" thing!
Play bows,

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

We too have forgone a few walks the past couple of days. Glad to hear Phantom is doing better!

Poodle Kisses,

The Thundering Herd said...

That just looked hot, but we don't blame you for wanting some walk.

Glad to hear Phantom is doing well. He is looking good. And like Khyra said, Sibes are here to confuse humans!

Reese =^..^= said...

Sorry it's so warm there. Stay cool, friends!

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos! Hot here too, but it is always hot here, I am glad you got in a walkie, and super glad to hear the Phantom is doing well!

the 4 Bs said...

oh you kiddos, we're glad that your mom took you for a walk, even though it was really hot. you have a lot of fur to be hanging around in the heat. you are lucky to have a cool air machine in your house.

we love your strategy of staring at your mom to get a walk. we are going to do that too.


Checkers said...

it's awfully hot here too!!!!!! When we got in on Saturday I dropped on the cool hardwood floor right where to cool airs were blowing and I didn't move for hours - Mom got worried that I was sick - but I was just tired from all that work I had to do to make her look good. I'll tell those UT gals to watch out for U Conn - but........well, you know I gotta pull from my Lady Vols - even tho daddy is a Bulldog!

The Great Rock Eater said...

So good to hear Phantom is doing well. Love the pics and I'll bet you boys love the air conditioning I know I do =)

Tweedles -- that's me... said...

Hot is definately not fun! Cool is fun!
You guys are looking great!
Keep it up Phamtom!

River said...

That was a great post! Wonderful photos and captions. We are glad to hear that Phantom is eating now.

love & wags,

Dory and the Mama said...

Yeah walks!!!!


Teddy said...

Wow, I don't know how you can stand the heat with those heavy fur coats on. I prefer to see you napping in the A/C house :) It just looks more comfie.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Glad to hear Phantom started eating -- that would have scared us too! When we drove out to California in 2002, Trixie didn't poop for the entire trip -- three or four days at least. In Dallas we stopped to get her checked out and the vet said she was probably just holding it because of the traveling. Sure enough, as soon as we got to California, she went out in our new backyard and christened it!

Twix said...

I'm so glad Phantom is doing well; I've been worried about him. Your post had my Mom laughing tonight! It was a fun one!
Love and hugs,

Lorenza said...

Hi, friends!
Here is very hot too and my walkies are even shorter!
Glad you had a nice walkie too!
Congratulations on your award!
Sure is nice to know Phantom is doing well and that he is eating well too!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Glad Phantom is eating again. Can't have mom upset! She needs a rest.

Princess Eva and Brice said...

Congrats on talking your mom into a walk - even just a short one can take care of the restlessness.

Good to see some of Phantom's fur growing back. We were just thinking of the last night.

Princess Eva

Cheyenne -Millie said...

Oh! We hope that Phantom continues to eat!

Those photos are great! Yes, we see that Phantom likes to do what Monty does here.... lay in that hot, hot sun!! Funny dogs!

Mochi and Mommy said...

That was a great bunch of pics! :) They sure looked happy to go out on their walk!

I'm so glad to hear that Phantom is doing well and glad he's eating again!


Tom, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan said...

Hot and bothered, clearly, but such wonderful photos of you handsome boys!

Ahem... you might try waking your Mom up at, say around 3am, to go for a walk.... It would be cooler.... Just an idea.....

Your Friends,
Tommy, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan


It is way too hot here too and Mommy only lets me out outside when she gets up in the morning adn after dark at night. We got NO shade in the backyard at all so it is so nice when we can go to Aunt Judy because it is si cool there.

Mommy's cried & cried when she first read the story. It is very true that not all dogs in rescue groups came from bad situations, thats why its so important to get them into forever homes quicky. Most owner surrenders are tramatic for both the owners & the dogs.

Loved all your pictures as usual.


Melissa and Emmitt said...

hi all of woo!
oh you look so happy after your walk even though it was so hot! you have a wonderful mom!

Love all the pics! Phantom don't scare your mama like that!

The Furry Kids said...

We're having the hots here too. Mom's glad it's finally warm here, but me and the twins are just chillaxing under the cold air blowy things.

Your pal,

Zoolatry said...

I have to ask you the same thing I asked Dory (when I was over at Dory's Backyard awhile ago)...
are all those ZZZzzzzzzzzz's meant for me? Are you dreaming of me...

That shady tree sure does look inviting! Stay cool guys!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You 2 sure know how to get mom going. We love the pictures. Sure glad our wonderful friend Phantom has decided to eat and is doing well..

Stella said...

Way to go, Phantom! I've been worried about you since your Mom told me you weren't eating. Keep it up!
I don't get to go walkies until after supper, when the sun goes down a little. Its 81 right now and forecasted for the 90s tomorrow. That may not be a big deal for you southers but its waaay hot up here!


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I'm glad you got a walk. I know how annoying it can be when Moms refuse to walk. Ours is lazy sometimes.

Phantom, you can hardly see your bald spot! Mom says you have pretty long fur and I can see it's really coming in handy.



Hi P and TD
Nice work getting mom out for a walk. I studied your techniques to use here. Well done zzzzzzzzzz.

Bae Bae said...

What nice walkies photos. :)

Alasandra said...

Mommy wonders how your Mom walks you both at the same time. She says I drag her around so much she couldn't imagine having two on a leash. ~Fenris

Wild Dingo said...

Everyone knows a Sibe lives... in a home...where there's airconditioning! Why do they think they call them Siberian Huskies anyway?


Phantom is probably just doing a quick 3-day fast to keep his figure. I'm glad to hear he's doing well.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Fun post you two, short walks are enough for us as well when it is really hot. :-)

We are glad Phantom is doing ok.

Holly & Zac...XX

Tee said...

Glad to hear that Phantom is ok!

We understand perfectly how the heat can simply sap anyone living thing out of the energy and enthusiasm for anything - including bloggin!

I love the pictures, you are both so beautiful. I am glad you got to go for a walk, it is hot here too right now. Phantom I am so glad you are ok, please don't scare your Mommy, I know we dogs like to keep them on their toes, but you need to eat.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

Sue said...

Tsar is part Husky and has always been a picky eater. My vet tells me that a lot of Huskies are. Have you found this to be a problem?

Joe Stains said...

ok so we would have to wait til November if we had to wait til it wasn't hot. its getting pretty tiring but we love our winters so it is worth it. glad to hear the overall status.
