Sandwich Snitcher

Phoenix was a bad egg today.

I had left half of a sandwich on the couch. I know…this is always a bad idea when you have a Husky!! What was I thinking?

It was sitting so nicely on my plate. I walked off for a second to talk to Richard, and when I returned it was gone. There sat a very guilty faced Phoenix!

I hope he enjoyed it!

New House

Phoenix is loving his new house! His favorite place is the backyard. He loves sitting outside, looking at all the scenery!

First Time Counter Surfer

Counter surfing…

I'm sure seasoned Husky owners have all seen the pictures, or experienced it for themselves. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's a great example.

And another…

These beautiful dogs aren't mine, mine has been a good boy, until now…

Seven years…that's how long we've had Phoenix minus the counter surfing. I'm not saying he hasn't been bad! He's had plenty more shenanigans to make up for his lack of perusing my clean countertops!

We just moved into a new house. There is a lot more counter space in the kitchen, and I am sure the leftover cup of garlic sauce was quite tempting as well! I walked in the door, after literally being gone less than two minutes, to find greasy garlic sauce all over my clean kitchen floor.

I would have never guessed it was him either, but he gave himself away. Poor dog. He just can't help it! I would have yelled at the cats!

I'm still not sure how he got to it. I had pushed it back so it was against the wall. I can't imagine him jumping on top of my counter, but I think he must have. If I only had proof!!

Sneaky little booger.

A Forever Home

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted a wolf. They are beautiful, amazing creatures, and I am fascinated by them.

Being that I live in Jacksonville, and the plethora of other reasons why a wolf would not a good pet make, I do not have one. And so my story moves on.

I moved to Jacksonville in the summer of 2004. I was engaged, soon to be married, and living on my own for the very first time. All my life I'd had animals and now I had none.
Being the sweet fiance that he is was, my then soon to be husband went with me on trip after trip to our local Humane Society. It didn't take very long…

We were looking at various dogs, and he'd found one he was interested in. I meandered along looking from cage to cage, when there he was. The most beautiful dog with big, brown eyes. I squealed in delight, and yelled for my husband to come quick!

We ended up taking two dogs into the meet and greet pen that day. One was Forest, a mixed breed, and the other "Chewy" the beautiful Siberian. It was instant love. Chewy was all over us, never was a dog more excited to see two people. Forest on the other hand, couldn't have cared less. He didn't want anything to do with us. The decision was pretty simple.

We filled out all the paperwork, and I adopted my sweet boy, and took him to his furever home.

We soon found out why they had named him Chewy….but that's another story!

Husky Love

Life is never dull with a Siberian Husky. They are a breed all their own.

My husband and I had no idea what we were getting ourselves into when we adopted Phoenix, but we wouldn't trade him for anything in the world!

Over the years, we have had many adventures. Some good, some funny, some not so good, some just plain crazy! He brings sunshine into our lives so I wanted to share him with you.

This blog is all Husky, all the time. I'll share stories, new and old, and whatever else I can think up!

Welcome to the world of one happy Husky!
