Thunder on Thursday





Thunder here on another very hot and steamy day in OP. We don't usually get to "horse around inside the house, but the Momster has had to relent a bit since we don't get to spend much time outside these days. KB from Romping and Rolling in the Rockies (as an aside, if you don't know KB, K, and R, you really need to visit their blog) commented a couple of days ago that she really didn't think Ciara deserved the name "Pest". Here is a little video for you to judge for yourselves. Yes, I do enjoy playing with her, BUT . . . . And be sure to watch to the end where the Fun Police Boss also makes an appearance. Ignore all the voices in the background - that's just some TV show Dad was watching.








Hope you enjoyed our little wrestlemania fun. Stay cool - it sure is hot in a lot of places.



Woos, Thunder

Phantom, you are lookin' so much better than the last time we saw you. Keep up the good work....you also did a great job of keeping your Sibe siblings in check!

Berts Blog said...

Not only did we enjoy the video of you guys rompin but we enjoyed the background from Criminal Minds.

My Vickie loves that show.

Stay cool

Stella said...

I agree with Amber that Phantom is looking lots healthier! On this video it was like he couldn't decide whether to join the play or be the Police!

We went from 90 degrees yesterday to 60s last night and it was a real blessing. We may have 80s today, but cool again tonight.

Wish for some outdoor fun for you, we haven't been walking either!

Kisses,
Stella

Today it's going to be over 100 here. I don't have anyone to play with inside, but I am taking advantage of the cooling air conditioning vents!

Hound Girl said...

Haha I loved it!!! That exactly whats been going on in my house but with only 2! Sigh... I wish I had carpet in the living room for when they play - it wouldnt be so noisy when they play!! Stay Cool!

Mrs. JP said...

What a good video. We're all barking a hello to Phantom. Ciara really has her little path down, doesn't she?
I am always amazed at your white carpet and clean floors. You are an amazing woman to keep up with the pack and the human pack too.

Lilo, The Great Rock Eater said...

So glad the momma is letting you blow off some steam in the house!! We can't wait until it cools down so we can get back outside!!

Thank you for the love!! It means a lot!!

~hugs~

We have been reading about the terrible heat and humidity in the US. Please stay cool! It seems odd to us as it is cold and rainy here.

As for Ciara being a pest, may we just point out that it does tale two to wrestle and TD, you're not exactly the unwilling participant, that we can see....

Woofs,
Tommy (hanging out with the girls...)

PHEW! I was afraid i was going to be reading about the noisy thunder. Pestisn't such a bad name. Stumpy gets called WAAAAAY worse!

I love seeing Phantom feeling good!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!

We thinks Artemisia and Ciara are soul twins. They can both behave like pest upon occasion, but they are so darn cute and loveable.

We are sure Fenris would never think the lovely Ciara is a pest. Artemisia on the other hand annoys the snot out of him when she plays with his ears. He is a good doggie to put up with her, he just ask to go outside when Arty pesters him too much.

ra husky said...

Round and round Ciara goes bol!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Yes, definitely the Fun Police Boss. We were expecting your mom, though. :)

Looks like you had fun, though.

Dory and the Mama said...

Tessa the Maltese said...

Now that sure looked like LOTS of FUN!!!

I sure was HAPPY to see Phantom join in the fun. He really is the fun Police Boss isn't he? I do think that Phantom looks pretty darn good, sure hope he feels as good as he looks!

Stay cool my Big Furry Furiends!

Woos, Tessa

rottrover said...

I love how even when Thunder takes Phantom's hint about knocking it off, Ciara comes over and bites his tail!!! BOL!! Pest for sure!!

It did look like Phantom wanted to play with Thunder at first. Interesting that he just ignores Ciara.

Hopin' your weather breaks soon...

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Yup, that be video proof that she be a pest! Bitey face be one thing but bitey tail? No respect fur her elders wot I is sure woz nefur pests. (I mean, really duss they have video proof of any of us being pests? I rest my case.)

pam said...

At one point Thunder looked up and it looked like he was saying 'Hey! did you see that??? Phantom just jumped me. did you see it did ya??'

Good to see Phantom in good spirits and wanting to join it. And it's always good to have a little control over the roughians...

It looked like you were enjoying that romp, TD. Sky did zoomies in the hose today . We're all so tired of this weather, we can't wait for fall so we can play outside again.

Doris Sturm said...

Considering how big you guys are (well, compared to me) I think it was all rather civilized :-)

I enjoyed watching you play! We are trying our best to keep cool too.

Gizzy and his mommy :-)

♥I am Holly♥ said...

I love the video!!! They look like they are having so much fun!!! Stay cool.....it's really hot here too....hard to breathe outside! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

sprinkles said...

It's only 80 here today but the humidity makes it seem like 100 degrees out there.

Phantom looks really good! He didn't really join in but I could tell he was enjoying it.

Corbin said...

Hehe, I could have watched that ALL day!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Great video! Do you mind if we use it as an instructional tool to teach Quinn how dog's play? And I am with Phantom, it is important to maintain SOME sense of decorum or chaos will ensue!

Maggie Mae said...

In da house zoomies and bitey face, I LUVS it! :)

Woofs and Licks,

Thor said...

Looks like you all had fun! Great video! Looking good, Phantom!

That's the first time I realized how much bigger you are than Ciara! She's a feisty little thing! I like that. Oh yeah, the fun police! Seems like every pack has one member of the force at home.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

What a great video! Just watching it made me laugh! Especially the biting the tail part!

Maggie and Mitch said...

At least you guys are having fun! We're bored here - it's too hot to do anything! We get morning walkies but that's the end of the show. We want snow!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mack said...

Does "ar roo rooo rooo" mean break it up you two, or can I play ??

Phantom, you are looking really good. I wish you could come over to my place, I would love to have a guy to wrassle with!!!

TGIF,
Mack

Piappies World said...

We enjoyed watching your fun indoor adventure today, Thunder and Ciara! Doing zoom zoomies on the beautiful carpet looks a lot of fun. We do wonder how you can keep your paws so clean that you can maintain the carpet looking so pristine.
It was such a happy surprise to see Phantom looking really great. Keep it up, pal!
Enjoy he weekend!

Love,
Piappies Fudgie, Princess, Frappie, Mocha, Sugar, Wai-Pai, Wai-Max & Forgie

kira said...

Hi friends huskys♥
THAT TIME!
KISSES!!

Julia Williams said...

She's not a pest, she's just having lots n lots of FUN!! And it was fun to watch too.

sagechronicles said...

Love the little tail-grab, back-leg-nip action! Ya' gotta stir up some action when it's too hot to go outside and do it, right?

Schnauzer Days said...

What a brilliant game you two were having, we play like that until Louis runs into the patio door and nearly knocks himself out. Phantom is certainly in charge, that was just fascinating to see. Would it be okay if we sent it to our friend who is studing to be an animal behaviourist?, we're sure she would find it fascinating. xxx

Chicco said...

Oh my sweet friends,
I loved the video, you're so funny!
And the pictures are fantastic, your eyes are magic.
Have a happy weekend.
Woof, woof,

Chicco

Clive said...

We loved the video!

We couldn't believe the hot temperatures in the US when we were watching our weather forecast earlier this evening! We have had the worst summer ever so we are hoping that a little of our rain and cool temperatures might find their way over to you!

take care and stay cool,
Clive and Murray

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Sending weekend wishes for cooling off and pleasant weather. We hope you get enough of a break to enjoy some REAL outside time!

FiveSibesMom said...

You three Sibes look gorgeous!!! What fun inside - we posted about indoor play today too, but you guys are lucky to get to do indoor zoomies. I better not let the Five see that video, they may get some ideas!!! The pups have been so antsy being couped up inside so much. And my how white your rug stays!!! Amazing! My guys are still blowing their coats, so there is fur everywhere! Stay cool, hopefully, if the reports are right, we should get a 10 degree break come Sunday. Sure hope so!!!

Sally said...

I had joy, look at the little wrestrlemania. Great.

Happy weekend
Sally

Mango said...

I think pest is exactly the proper name. Look at all that tail grabbing. No wonder the fun police had to step in.

Slobbers,

The Thundering Herd said...

We think indoor wrestling is the best, but the humans seem to disagree most days.

Lacy said...

w00fs, looks like Phantom wanted to play some too...

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Oh My ... for the past 3 days/night Thunder n lightning with heavy rain. Great way to keep you guys occupied indoors. Happy Weekend. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

englishgoldenretrievergirl said...

Oh, wow. You look like you were having so much fun! I wish mummy would get me a playmate, but she says I'm a handful as it is. Love and hugs, Bronte.

Bobby said...

You were having great fun, its good to see Phantom nearly joining in.

Asta said...

Now that's THAT's the way to beat the heat!I wish I had some bootiful siblings to weltle wif
I'm so glad all of you awe staying inside and still having fun
smoochie kisses

KB said...

Well, Thunder, it certainly looked to me like you were an enthusiastic participant. I stand by my defense of your sister!!!

Isn't it funny how the elder dog seems to always take on the role of "fun police"? The same thing has happened with every single combination of dogs who we've had!

I feel for you in this heat, and I hope that it cools down soon. At this time of year, I realize that I don't mind -20 deg for a few days in winter if the tradeoff is that 80 deg is very very hot at our house.

BeadedTail said...

Thunder, your little sisfur sure keeps you on your toes! She's got a lot of energy!

Phantom, you have a tough job of being the Fun Police Boss with those two! You sure told them though!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Interesting how varied the opinions are. Looked to us like Phantom was trying to play. And we're with KB: Thunder was giving as good as he got, if not more. Looked like an even bout to us. We're getting away with inside play, too - it's as hot and humid here as it is there.

Did you get all the roofing damage repaired and everything back the way it should be? Including your gate?
