The Woos' Working Wednesday

Before we get started on our "work" this Wednesday, we finally got a good shot of our new neighbor pup. This is Layla, maybe a relative of Maggie Mae? She was a Christmas puppy is about six months old now.

She likes to sit and watch us and bark at us. We haven't had a chance to play with her yet because the gate to our compound is securely locked. But isn't she pretty?

Now on to our story for today . . .

As you can see, the no-sibe zone is now fully enclosed with that fancy schmancy fencing. The Momster is feeling pretty smug because we have so far respected the barricade.

So there has been no work in the garden this week, right, Ciara?

What do you think, TD? Should we let our readers see how hard we have been working this week - after all, we are a working breed?

Ummm, you might want to bigify this picture to see what has been going on in the underground level of the playset condo.

This side too, TD. We moved our work zone to the back corner of the yard where there are no Momster no-sibe zones. I have been doing my best to check up on those freeloading critters invading our space. I made the hole a little bigger so I won't miss them when they try to get out.

Yes, the silly bunnies have returned. We think Mom and Pop Rabbit have been working on something under there. We can smell them, but so far we haven't seen them. But we are hard workers and we won't give up.

Hi Mom. What was that? Oh, we are just being good sibes and relaxing here in a nice shady spot. (To be continued.)

Phantom decided to take a day off from any yard work. He has had a rough week and hasn't been feeling too perky. But he is doing a great job of resting and relaxing.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Momster's Note: Looks like a second project is in order in addition to the painting of the swingset - time to figure out a way to create a new no-sibe zone.

You mean you guys also have those furry creature invading your spaces? And you have to protect the fort?? We have been busy doing the same thing!! Maybe we need to get our paws together so we can outsmart these crazy varmits!!

Hope Phantom is feeling better.

Sally said...

Oh I see. You are the same shadow hoppers as me. :-)
nice woooh

bichonpawz said...

Ah yes...we have those little critters in our yard too!!! We call them groundhogs and squirrels!!! Love your yard!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Cocorue said...

hiya guys,

we can see that you've been busy.....well done!

coco and tiffy

rottrover said...

TD is such a momma's boy! He's all "No Mom, I didn't dig ANYTHING, it was Ciara. She THOUGHT she heard bunnies under the swingset!!" And Ciara says, "Bunnies!! There's a WARREN down there and we gotta get them all!!" Both making a thoughtful effort to give Phantom some 'alone time.'

Nice pack!!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

I'm sure woo two will figure out SOMETHING!

We hope Phantom will have a better sekhond part of the week!

As fur Layla, what a beaWOOty - and I love her ears!


Mango said...

Shame all your hard work is not appreciated. Note to mom, no rabbits have gotten inside the estate, thanks to the fearless guard dogs. There, hope that helps.


Amber DaWeenie said...

Did you do dat? Naw! Da bad, bad bunnies did dat!

Gus said...

Ya know, maybe walking them six times a day isn't as bad as staying one step ahead of them in the garden.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! YES it looks like Maggie Mae. Your yard is looking good. Happy Wednesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Those pesky rabbits have a nest with babies in it about 10 feet from our pen - when we go out there, they hop around and taunt us!! If Mom would only let us loose one time, we'd show those varmints!!

Miranda said...

Hi new friends! Y'all are simply gorgeous! Thank you so much for stopping by my human's blog to introduce yourselves. I love your blog and looking at your adventures! :)
Slobbery kisses,
Darcy (and her human)

jen said...

All work and no play!Somebody's gottta watch out for those bunnies!

I love the fence! It looks very nice and Sibe proof:)

Hope Phantom feels better soon!

Frankie Furter said...

Sorry to hear that Phantom has not felt like Working... butt EVERY job needs a SUPERVISOR. RIGHT???
Your mom has created No Sibe Zones??? I'm not sure that is a good thingy. Have you shown her how you can JUMP???? I'm just hintin'. hehehe

Stella said...

I think the no-sibe zone for the flowers and shrubs are just fine, but don't you think they deserve something in the yard to call their own? Like the play equipment, for instance. Seems like a small trade-off for me.


Hugs for Phantom and good wishes for feeling better!

Anna the GSD said...

What important work you're doing! Doesn't momster know that some people would pay thousands of dollars for such great excavation/pest control?? I mean, you're SAVING her money!!

Feel better Phantom! I'm sending some healing kisses your way!!

rottrover said...

We forgot to comment on how ADORABLE Layla is!! Hope you can make furiends with her!!

-Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

I think a basement apartment, under the condo, is a fabulous idea! Totally and investment and upgarde, to the property, that will pay off in spades, one day! Carry on!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Feel better, Phantom! I hope it helps to know, that even when you're feeling under the weather you are still one handsome Sibe!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

That is hard work...digging for bunnies! We hope Phantom starts to feel much better! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Corbin said...

Send those bunnies an eviction notice!

Mr. Pip said...

You know, I think you could hop that fancy fence easily! Don't tell your mom I suggested this!

Rest up, Phantom. I am sure the weather is not helping your mood. Feel better soon.

Your pal, Pip

Remington said...

You are always busy doing something....I can see why Phantom needs a nap!

Wyatt said...

No Sibe zone! It's so unfair! That is a pretty barricade :)

Wyatt and Stanzie

Benny and Lily said...

You guys better slow down so you don't get overheated working so hard! Layla sure is purrrrty
Benny & Lily

Samantha said...

Oooooh - love that fancy fence, but much more... we love to see you hard at work, protecting the perimeter! And you two definitely make a great patrol! Phantom - hope you feel perkier very soon - rest and recover, dear pup!
Hugs xoxoxo
Sammie, Avalon and Ozzie

The Heartbeats said...

Layla is a total babe! Of course, so is Ciara but she's just not quite my "type". BOL! Ya'll better keep those bunnies at arms length. Ask Frankie about the A Salt and Bunnery charges he recently experienced...


Channon said...

Lalya is beautiful, as is that fencing around the sibe-free zone.

Hope you're feeling better soon Phantom!

SAS....Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Layla is gorgeous, but so are all of you!!!!!!!!!!


Sonic said...

You guys are like my Momma: she comes home after a long day at work and still looks glam and gorgeous!

Unlike my Pops, who is all stinky and messy.


Peggy Frezon said...

Well if the garden is off limits, looks like you need to find more new places to "work". Have fun!

tula said...

can woo maybe wait until after sunday?? don't want to miss out on any kinduv easter bunny visit, ok?!


Suka said...

Layla is a beaut! I bet she will be a very fun playmate, if you can manage to undo the gate!

BUNNIES!!! I can be right over to help you get those yummy bunnies out. Seriously. I love me some yummy bunnies! ;->

Phantom, I am sorry to read you are feeling a bit under the weather. You are a smart pup to just rest and relax. Let Ciara and TD do all the heavy labor. :-> Paws crossed you are back to full health soon!

Sue said...

Tsar and Bailey and Morgan know that somebody is living in the rock pile. They spend most of their outdoor time watching and sniffing and trying to adjust the rocks to get a better look.

Ms. ~K said...

Be nice to the bunnies...remember, Easter is coming up and you don't want an Easter basket full of coal do you? Or am I confused?

The Sprollies 'n' Border Collies said...

Bunnies! Watch out guys!

Kari in WeHo said...

your neighbor pup is beautiful!


Reilly / Bree said...

We use to have ground squirrels under out patio in Nebraska - they would drive me crazy and I was always trying to dig them out. I did catch one once and bought it in for mom and laid the dead little critter at her feet. Maybe you try that with your Mom - hmmm then again maybe not - my mom wasn't very happy when she saw it for some reason.

Lincoln said...

Layla is very cute !
I had a bunny brother for some time but I was too rough with him and so now he is at my human's sister's place where he is ALONE far away from the trouble I used to give him .... But that's OK I still get to see him sometimes !
I love bunnies !!!!!

Anonymous said...

We have rabbits in our yard too. They leave little presents behind. We never see them but we keep an eye out.

Casper Bear said...

Hope Phantom feels better! Love the fence. I love bunnies and I'd love one in my garden. Your neighbours pup Layla is bautiful!
Lotsa Licks

BeadedTail said...

We hope Phantom gets to feeling better!

The fence looks nice but we are trying to grasp the concept of a no-Sibe zone and can't quite understand what that means unless the momster plans on fencing off the entire backyard! :)

Anonymous said...

Oh Lord...please don't tell us you have rabbits! Riley caught (and ate half of) a baby bunny when she was about 3 months old...I had only had her for about a month at that point. Still gives me shudders!

We hope you three Sibes are MUCH nicer to the furry little things in the yard than Riley was...!

I was wondering where Phantom was when I was reading this blog, but then you showed him resting at the end. We hope he feels back up to par soon!! :)

Elyse and Riley (the bunny killer!) :(

Ruby and Penny said...

If you two scare away the bunnies there will be no rent treats.
Love Ruby & Penny

Ginger Jasper said...

I can see you have been busy and digging like mad. I bet you find them if you keep going. My sweet woofie friend Phantom I hope youi are feeling better soon. HUgs GJ xx

Sagira said...

You guys sure are sneaky....good work my friends! Keep your mom on her toes and thinking.

Sure do hope Phantom has a better week next week and feels more perky.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Mom has bunnies living in her garden and we love going in there to sniff around and see if we can find them!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Sychoberians said...

A No Sibe Zone? Inconcievable!!!!.

We wish some pesky rabbits would just dare to enter our yard, we can taste them now.

Remy and Flash

Huffle Mawson said...

Good luck Momster, is all I can say!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Really, you would think some appreciation is in order for keeping such watchful control on the bunny population know if you let two get settled, in no time there will be HUNDREDS! Hope Phantom's back half of the week is better. Oh, and Layla looks cute but kind of bossy.

sprinkles said...

How very thoughtful of you to dig a hole for the bunnies. I bet your mom really appreciates that! bol

Hope Phantom gets to feeling better.

Au and Target said...

We hope Phantom is OK. Secretly we're hoping you won't catch the rabbit but instead by distracted by your nice new neighbour. think you will be allowed to play together?

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I see how very hard you have been working,., there is no doubt in my mind at all!!

I hurried over to see you because my puter was broken, but it is home now,,,so good to see you again

Anonymous said...

Whew! You all have been working HARD! Good job! I'm really proud of you and I now your momster must be proud of you, too! And she must also feel much safer knowing you're protecting her from those bunny rabbits.

Wiggles & Wags,

The Thundering Herd said...

Now there has to be a designated Sibe digging zone. It is in our contracts.

P.S. Stay strong, Phantom!

the booker man said...

awww, rats, ya'll! your momster is totally makin' your gardenin' work a little more full of the complications with that fancy schmancy fencin' stuff! my mama is over here sayin' how pretty it is...traitor!! ;) anywho, nice work on your tunnelin' project under the playset. you'll have those bunnies dug out in no time!!

the booker man

pee s -- mr. phantom, you are smart to take a breakie from yard work today. it's so tiring 'n stuff, and deep down, i gotta admit that i like snoozin' better. heehee.

houndstooth said...

Well, really, your momster can't expect you to live without some sort of Siberian work zone! What are you supposed to do? Just laying outside in the grass sounds boring!


Honey the Great Dane said...

Wow - you have rabbits in your garden??!! Can I come to live with you? :-)

Honey the Great Dane

KB said...

You two had better guard that hole day and night so that your rabbits don't escape! And, don't let that momster ruin *all* of your fun!

I hope that your brother Phantom is feeling better soon. Is it the thunderstorms that have him down?

Also, your grass is SO green. I'm jealous.

Holly and Khady said...

It's just a matter of time. I know it! I have every confidence in you Ciara!

Twinkietinydog said...

I just had to stop by to check up on my furiend, Phantom. He's got the right idea. I'm not happy to hear about those no-sibe zones though. Tsk tsk.


Mrs. JP said...

Layla is beautiful. She looks like a bundle of fun and I hope you get to play w/ her soon.
You know what they say...All work and no play...They've just combined the two.
I'm so impressed that your fence is being respected.
Love to Phantom from all of us in the holler...

FiveSibesMom said...

Nice fence around the "no Sibe zone!" You Sibes are just so good and respectful of the new gardens! Keep up the good work watching out for those rabbits! Can't have any critters in a Sibe yard!

Phantom - we sure hope you'll be up to feeling well real soon.

Snowie Baby said...

well done guys! i would love to do that with u!!
i hope phamtom is feeeling okay!!

Butchy, Katie, Ruby, Sylvester, Scuby, Hootie, Zeek said...

Bunny raggits??? Hmmmm, we hardly ever have those here in the country surprisingly. Mama told us it's because Herky Hawk & the owls that live around here seem to nab up those pesky wabbits, hehehhee. Have fun with the fence monster. (you need to just jump over him!)

You bad dogs, well I guess the plants might survive until you have dug every where else.

Anonymous said...

Are they relatives of Frankies Charcoals or of the Easter Bunny?

Either way be careful, cause you 'member how Our Mayor too a bunny beating just recently.

I gots some pesky squirrels here and sure could use some sibe help. So come on over!

woo woos, Tessa

kira said...

My best friend´s!
how are you?

Ruby's Raiser said...

Oh those wascally wabbits. My old girl Kiva isn't doing much running anymore these days, but she still tries her best to out hop the bunnies and chase them out of her yard!

Your yard looks beautiful. Hoping Phantom is feeling a little better today.

Thor said...

Great work in your yard! We hope Phantom feels better!

Thor and Jack

♥ Sallie said...


Well, at least the fence looks pretty!


The Teacher's Pets said...

Oh, I see what you are doing! You are trying to create a diversion from fence hopping by digging a rabbit hole instead! Good thinking! Or is that hole going below ground so you can build a tunnel to get you to the fence and the shrubs?

Sarge said...

Wow, every dog's gotta dig! It's in the rule book isn't it?!? Sometimes peeps just forget this. The fence is an agility thing isn't it?!? I think this is all just to challenge and amuse you. Go to it!!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Happy Earth Day, dear friends. Treat our planet kindly; it is truly a wonderful world.

Zona said...

You are doing a great job, in my opinion!


PeeS: Hope Phantom is feeling better.

Pippa said...

Myself I make sure there are no No-Go zones. I few broken plantpots and squashed plants don't harm anyone. Misery is rather jealous of your momster's lovely garden though.

Paws crossed for Phantom that he feels a bit brighter.


road-dog-tales said...

You are very clever (and diligent) sibes! We gotta paw it to you! BTW - Do not be deterred by fancy new fence, we think it is penetrable!

Maggie Mae said...

OoH I am so happy dat I finally got over here to see your neighbor pup Layla, her is so cute! I sure hopes you get a chance to meet her up close soon! Good luck gettin' dose bunnies too. I will send puppy prayers to Phantom to helps him feel better. :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

ForPetsSake said...

It's hard work to be a working breed and patrolling the perimeter for nuisance critters!

I hope Phantom is feeling better immediately and feels well enough to supervise the dynamic duo soon :)

Michelle said...

Hope Phantom is feeling better now and can get back to work! Looks like there are always jobs to be done!
