Getting to Know You

Monday morning brought sunshine to Overland Park. We had mostly sleet and ice here yesterday with a dusting of snow at the end. North and east of us got a lot more snow. But at least the mud has frozen for now:) Here is a video of the boys and their sister playing outside. As you watch, you can see how Phantom is much more willing to push her around when he is competing with Thunder. If he is out alone with her, he basically ignores her. Thunder, on the other hand, really lets the play mode kick in when he gets his time with Ciara. Enjoy.

Woos, Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara


Anya said...

So cute video
How sweet they are playing together
(Its looks sometimes scary with the little one !!)
I think she is accepted in the family ;)
You have many space outside your house they have many place to run free around :-)
Its lovely to see it ...

Gus said...

Great video - and the pup is a real winner. Please tell the boys that they may not always be able to boss her around this way. Teka taught me that about 3 days into our relationship!


Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

too cute! I love Ciara's reaction to the swing :-)

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

What a great video! She clearly adores her big brothers, and they are very gentle with her!

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

Good moves Ciara!

Woo show those boys!


BRUTUS said...

Absolutely adorable! What a wonderful yard you guys have to play in! Huge & fenced-in - perfect!! Love how Ciara is mystified by the swing :)

w00fs, heehee what fun..that little girlie can sure run...and the last post, its cute how she goes from toy to toy...

b safe,

Mango said...

I liked Thunder's little gazzele leap into the bushes. I think that he is as bouncy as Ciara. I think Phantom was happy to supervise from inside. It is helpful to have two brothers to wear the little minx out.

Great action movie! MORE please.


YD, sometimes with Samantha and June said...

Love the video! Ciara is so cute! Love playtime, especially with a little pup.

Aniemother said...

Aww.. Ciara is soo cute, and seems to be a lovely balanced and polite pup, too. We won't dare sharing these pix with PA or Mom is afraid there will be a fluffy dog in our future. BOL!

Puppy PuPPy PUPPY time!!!! Go Ciara go!
Fun times! Wootwoot!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Canine Crusader said...

What a treat to see this video! Wow, your Mom has her hands full right now, but Ciara is a joy to watch! If Ciara doesn't tire you two out, nothing will! Mom noticed how she rolled over and submitted to you guys in the yard - that should to help avoid any dominance issues. We are happy to hear you have a new sister. You guys be good to her, it won't be long and everyone will be well adjusted. This was such a treat for us hearing that you have expanded your family!

you tell the big brofers to be nice to her caushe when she gets bigger as girls always do
they become the bosses and i member coco chanel getting payback on poor guero when she grew up

Alex93andme said...

I love the video!!! The boys and little Ciara are beautiful and so much fun to watch. Ciara looked like she was trying to figure out the swing! Thanks so much for sharing!! Lots of love, Debbie and Hollydog

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

That little sister is going to be a bossy one in no time! Thunder obviously read in the puppy manual that "a tired pup is a good pup" and he is doing his best to wear her out. It is delightful to see just joyful family fun, thanks for the uplift!

The Thundering Herd said...

Two thoughts went through my mind -

1) I bet 5 minutes after you got back inside, there was a whole lot of snoring going on.

2) TD and Phantom - you are so in trouble. She will be totally in charge. Just saying.

Sonic said...

With this sorta playing/training, Ciara is gonna grow up bigger and stronger than her brothers! They'd better watch out then!


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

She is so cute.. You will both think she is just awesome in no time.. Watch out she will grow up in no time...

Big Sloppy Kisses

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh about Marley.. Sis neglected to get her zipper put in before she went in to heat so she has to stay away from me, Gus. Not that I would do anything. chuckle chuckle..

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos! That looks like awesome fun! Although I do not want an annoying little puppy to play with, she might be cuter than me! Wouldn't that be just awful! Scampi is in love though, stop giving my Mom ideas in her head, 2 dogs are enough!

Chester said...

What a fun time and Ciara is not afraid to play with the big kids at all.

Loved seein' the kids in the snow!

Woofs and slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

I'm glad to see that Ciera likes snow. That is a definite requirement if she wants to be my future sister-in-law.

Mom says she didn't realize how close Thunder and Ciera's coloring was until this video. Thunder and Ciera look like they are a good pair. I bet Phantom will get the hang of it soon.


Ms. ~K said...

Ooooh, I could watch them all day and get nothing else done!
Hugs and belly rubs to all,

Twinkietinydog said...

I love the video. Ciara is adorable and you guys are so fun to watch trying to fully engage in play with her. Every time I see your new signature I get a huge smile on my face.

BeadedTail said...

Cute video! Ciara is a real tomboy keeping up with her brofurs! Her reaction to the swing was adorable as was seeing Phantom watching from the window. Thunder is really good with her too.

We do think there might have been an inch of snow left for them to trample so hope they get back out there to make sure it gets trampled!


I wanna play I wanna play!!!!
Please can I come over.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I bet that little Ciara is a little snuggle bug.
She must sleep good at nite after playing all day with her brothers.

Lorenza said...

I loved to watch you 3 playing outside!
I can see Ciara is making you Thunder and Phantom to run around!
Kisses and hugs

Two Country Poodles said...

Holly and Khady said...

You may be tiny Ciara, but you are already showing those silly boys who is gonna be boss one day!! Hang in there, you will be big enough to REALLY play bitey face with them before too long!!

The video was hilarious!!! She is so adorable!!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Clive said...

Greetings from Dublin! You just made the NSLM's morning. We only got back from holidays last night and just got a chance to look back through your last few posts this morning. Murray was so thrilled to see Ciara!

Ciara is such a beautiful puppy! We loved all the photos and the video!

Murray's cousin Ciara here will be very impressed!

A fantastic name for a great new puppy!

lots of love
Clive and the NSLM

- we presume you know the meaning of the name and the history behind it - but if you want to know more about the name - we have our book of Irish names sitting here beside the computer and can send you more information on the name!

Dory and the Mama said...

You are doing a great job of keeping up with your big brother Ciara....In a few months you can really show them who is boss!!


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

they are very good with her!!!

Byron y Xinver said...

We've learned a word from you: sleet. In Spanish it is aguanieve, a mixture of water and snow... Thanks!

Ruby and Penny said...

We're so glad you guys are getting along with your sister.
Phantom watching from the window is adorable.
Love Ruby & Penny

Snowy and Crystal said...

we loved the video ^_^ aww the noises that you were making is SO CUTE

Piappies World said...

We enjoyed watching the video. Phantom and Thunder are warming up to her and Ciara can surely run and before long she'll be doing zoom zoomies with her best brothers.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Did Thunder want back inside or was he banished?!! Hey, ask your mommy to make the comment box a pop-up that way we can comment without loosing the post.
We were enjoying the video until we went to comment,then it closed out. Just love your little Ciara. Wonder if they ever tried to miniaturize Huskies?? Have a great day!

Melissa and Emmitt said...

hi kathie!
oh she is so beautiful! i am so excited for all of you!
your video made me smile!

Wild Dingo said...

ooooo I can NOT wait til she gets a wee bit bigger, and she'll be puttin' the smack down on those two boys so fast! I love how she tried to climb up on Phantom...already she's trying to boss him. pushy little thing! love her!

and i see that she's already been trained in her Siberian deaf ear when you called her in!LOL!

Pedro said...

Soooooo cute! Do Siberians like small dogs and cats?? We still don't know if we're going to get another dog but Ziggy was part Huskey and he was a great dog with us little critters. But he was also 1/2 golden retriever and part German shepherd...


Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We didn't get any snow to send your way... :0(

Big Sloppy Kisses

Huffle Mawson said...

She's just SO FREAKING CUTE! Glad to see everyone is mostly getting along now.

Bijou said...

It is good to see you three playing outside. We got the snow you should have gotten though! Phantom will probably come around once Ciara gets past the puppy stage. BOL



Hi there,

I will gladly give you all the snow we get. Where should I sewnd it?

Love the pictures of all of you in the snow. I copied one of Ciara so we can have her as one of my snow dog. <oomy loved the picure of you all actually looking at your Mom. I'm gonna use that one too!1


Life With Dogs said...

Any chance you can start a 24/7 streaming puppycam for us? It's not puppy breath, but it would be popular!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Oh we've missed visiting you. Any explanation would sound like an excuse ... we're not going to go there. But we've been peeking in and took some time tonight to catch up with your gorgeous little furball. Ciara is precious, and we can imagine the joy she is bringing to your family. The pictures and videos tell it all. And what a great homecoming for a sibe ... a snowy backyard!

Enjoy her puppyhood. It will go so fast!

The Furry Kids said...

That's a great video! It's exactly what Mom needed this morning!
Ciara, those swings can be super askeery. Watch out!

Your pal,

Mack said...

Oh My Dog!!

My mom has been so dang lazy lately and not helping me with my bloggy, we didn't even know there was a new baby at your place. We all agree over here: Ciara is a DOLL!


Hi Guys,

We never get tired of watching you play together. So cute!

Riley and Star.

Rambo said...

OMDawg!! You got a sister??? When did this happen?? I better get my G-Mom to get on the ball and off her big hiney. I am missing all this important information.

BTW...I luv the video. It was fun.


Amber and Nala said...

Ah Thunder, you are so sweet with little Ciara! :)


Ruby's Raiser said...

AAAAH! I. Could. Eat. Her. Confident little puppy mixing it all up with the big boys. Too cute.

Scout 'n Freyja said...

She's SMART! She knows that she is smaller than they are and that there are places she can go and they can't. What a cutie patootie. BOY, DO I EVER WANT TO SMELL ME SOME PUPPY BREATH!

Sagira said...

SO cute...I have puppy fever!

Mochi and Mommy said...

OMD I could watch that video all day! Mom keeps mumbling something about wanting a puppy! She must be crazy!
