Me and My Kitty Sisfur…

photo-7My sister Zoe

Missed us all so very much

While off on our trip

 

Though a great Swami Yogi

She was lonely without us

 

 

Eventhough Sisfur Zoe had the Grand Paw and kitty cousin Callie to be with, she missed us so furry furry much while Me and Mama and Nalle were on our trip. I maybe missed my sisfur too. I’ve even asked let her kissie my nose and cheeks and lickie my snout and ears since we got back without a grumble (it tickles!).

The Mission de Santa Barbara

El Camino Real was the royal road the Spanish missionaries made/took when they established all the missions in California (when it was part of Spain). We live near one of the missions, Mission Dolores, in San Francisco. These bells line the whole El Camino Real, including all the way along Highway 101 through most of the state. Can you tell Mama was giving us History lessons in the car?!?! WOL!

We love traveling around

Visiting beaches

We hiked some trails in Orange County…

I checked out the comfy bed

Got caught in the act

 

Mama was very surprised

First time I laid on a bed!

 

Daily Prompt: Full Tanka

Wooohooowooooo Efurrybuddy! Me and Mama and Nalle are on the road! We are traveling around California to explore places we might want to live. Tonight is our first night on the road, and our hotel room had this big big king size bed! I just had to check it out, fur Mama of course! :-)

I have never, not even once, tried to climb onto Mama’s bed. She is AlphaWolfieMamaBear, and I refuse to challenge her rank in the pack. Mama lets Nalle on the bed fur a wee bit in the evenings when Mama is reading in bed, and she had tried to get me to join her too fur a few minutes of cuddling. But, I will not get on Mama’s bed! However, since we are traveling, technically the beds are not Mama’s, and so I must check them out and make sure they are good fur my Mama! WOL!

I am reminding Mamaclickyfingerssecretary (AlphaWolfieMamaBear’s other identity) to take piccies of our adventures to I can show all of you. Stay tuned…

Happy Birthday to My Sisfur Nalle!

photo 4-2Happy Birthday to you

I love you, I do

A pup could ask fur, it’s true!

 

 

 

 

 

Wooooooohoooowooooooo Efurrybuddy! Today is my sisfur’s 4th birthday! Wooooohooooowoooooooooo!

Remember how on National Doggie Day when we took Mama to a pet store and Nalle was sniff-shopping and she had her eye on a dinosaur bone? Well, Nalle said I could pick out a present fur her birthday this year instead. So I got Mama to stop in at another pet store during one of our longer walks by convincing her we just wanted to stop in fur some water and free treats. WOL! Well, to Mama’s surprise I picked out a pretzel sharkie fur Nalle’s birthday present! And then I carried it all the way home – 1.5 miles! – fur my sisfur.

photo 2-3

Bye-bye pet store! Thanks fur the free treats and the sharkie!

photo 1-4

Lots of places to hold pretzel sharkie.

photo 3-3

Don’t worry Nalle. I can carry pretzel sharkie all the way home fur you!

And thank you to our furry buddy Easy fur sending Nalle this most pawesome card! Nalle wuvwuvwuvs it! She even has a mini polar bear tooowoooowooooooo!

nalle

Fur those of you who don’t know my sisfur well (she only guest bloggies here once in a bluewoowoooo moon), she shares a bloggy with Mama’s animal healing site, where she bloggies about her job as an animal assisted therapy pup. She works furry hard helping others heal with her wuvwuvwuv! Check her out here!

National Doggie Day!

To bring luck to all us hounds

 

Wooohooowoooooo Efurrybuddy! Today is National Doggie Day and Mama took me and sisfur Nalle to the beach to celebrate! And guess who we ran into?!? Remember when Mama took us to the biggest, pawesomest Snow Pup Paw-ty ever? Well, we ran into Nalle’s boyfurriend Kodiac! Here is a piccie of him kissing Nalle at the Snow Pup Paw-ty:

After about an hour exploring the beach, Mama took us to a pet store and got us big yumwumwumwumwum braided bully sticks!

Me enjoying my bully stick. They did not last furry long. WOL!

At the pet store Nalle was sniff-shopping. Why? Because Saturday the 30th is her birthday! She will be 4 years old, eventhough she wants to be a baby pup furever. WOL! She has her eye on the giant dinosaur-looking bone fur her birthday present. (Hint to Mama!) ;-) Wooooooooooooowooooooooooooo!

Doggie Years…

Storm-2

My Mama with one of the pups from the Sundoggie Ranch!

If you calculate

Mama’s age in doggie years

But do it backwards

 

Then she is even younger

Than any buddy had guessed!

 

Woooooowooooooo Efurrybuddy! If you clicky on over to Mama’s bloggy here, you will find out who won Mama’s birthday contest to guess her age. I will tell you that Mama in backwards calculated doggy years is 5.71428571 years young! WOL!

 

Happy Birthday to My Mama!

Wooohooowoooo Efurrybuddy! Today is my pawesomest bestest Mama in the world’s birthday! Wooooowoooowoooooooooooooo! Me, Nalle, and sisfur Zoe got Mama a special dinner last night, but Mama is also giving stuff away fur her birthday! Isn’t she the bestest!?!?! :-D

Here’s what Mama says today on her bloggy, Through the Peacock’s Eyes:

thumbnail_image-2Today is my birthday! To celebrate, I am doing two give-aways!

Firstly, I am offering to all of you the e-version of my poetry book: Flying From the Heart, A Collection of Poems on Loving and Being, today through the 9th, which can be downloaded from Amazon here. If you do not have Kindle, you can also download a Kindle App for free here!

Secondly, whoever first guesses my age (sorry, astrology friends who know my birth data, you are disqualified) will get a free natal chart reading, Vedic or Western. Just leave a comment on my birthday post at Through the Peacock’s Eyes with your guess. To learn more about my sessions and readings click here.

Ok, Efurrybuddy, I will give you a hint…Mama is older than Nalle (and maybe me, but I don’t know my real birthday) in doggie years. WOL! :-)

And now a birthday poem/song fur my Mama:

Happy Birthday to you,

You live in a zoo

Of puppies and kitties

Who love you, they do!

wpid-liebster-awardI am beloved

By my sweet blogger furriend

Thank you Kolytyi!

 

 

 

Woooohoooowooooooo! Another pawesome bloggy award, The Liebster Award! Thank you Kolytyi fur the award and your beauwoowoooootiful photography bloggy Trifles! Be sure to check out Trifles here!

Fur this award I have to answer 11 questions and nominate 11 bloggies. From Mamaclickyfingers’ research many of our fellow pet bloggers have already gotten this award, so I will just answer the questions this time since I need to take my afternoon nap soon! :-)

1. What is your favorite piece of music? I like to do my own singing, often in duets with my sisfur Nalle: Woooooowoooooowooooo… wooooo…woooo…woooooooooooo!

2. Who is your favorite actor/actress? I like to watch wolfie documentaries, so my cousins in the wild!

3. Has your life ever been in danger? YES! When I was a baby pup, I lived on a 4-foot chain fur almost 2 years and was in severe danger of dying of starvation and dehydration like some of my pack did. :-(  If you want to know more, check out my About Kuruk page and my bookie about my rescue: Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could, One Rescue Pup’s Journey of Healing.

4. What is your favorite plant? I like to sniff and brush against the rosemary and lavender bushes all over here. Mama says it makes me smell dewishus! WOL!

5. If you were a pet, would you like to be a dog or a cat, or something else? I am a doggie! WOL!

6. Which profession did you want to choose as a child? I never thought I would be a famous author and poet. I never thought there was life beyond the puppy mill either.

7. What do you do if you are out of temper? I say WOO! and then maybe pace a bit to burn off steam.

8. How does the house/flat of your dreams look like? Where ever my Mama is!

9. What would you choose: to be a renowned scientist or to be a famous artist? Why? A famous artist because it’s much more fun to be creative! Wooooooowooooo! Maybe I will pick up paw-painting now! :-D

10. Have you ever tried some arts (literature, music, acting, fine arts, etc.)? Yes! I was in a video (click here), was a model as Mister August 2012 (click here to see!), am an author, blogger, and poet!

11. What is your favorite sport? Wrestling! Woooooowoooooooooooo!

Wooohooowooooo Efurrybuddy! Another Haiku Jam today with none other than the furry famous Crepes from Cat In The Fridge! Crepes starred in a movie that was at the Catdance Film Festival. Check out her movie “Catalogue” here!

Like me and Mama, Crepes and her Mama Alana hope to help other animals especially special needs ones (Crepes only has 3 legs). Thank youwooowoooooooo fur joining me fur some jamming’ and fur all you do fur animals!

And now fur our Haiku Jam! We chose the theme of PLAY! Mine are in purple, of course, and Crepes’ are pretty in pink…

Snow pup wrestle-ing                                                                                                   My favorite kind of play
Me master wrestler
I like to eat bees.
MomFOD says I shouldn’t, though.
Her eyes turned, I strike.

Nalle catches flies
But I play with my spider
Stuffy squeaky toy 

This morning, a moth.
Tomorrow, I’ll get that fly.
Also, I hunt string.
 
Strings are not fur me
Giant ropes to shred are fun
Chew toys to destroy
I like boxes, too.
I’ll take your chew toy boxes

And sit inside them.

I sit on my beds
But Nalle likes to chew them
And sometimes gut them 

Gutting is best done
On things that contain catnip
And also on trout.
 
Now we’re talkin’ fish
Playtime done, now time fur treats
Sardines fur me please! 

I will eat sardines
And then I will nap all day
With my dog friend Ku.

At the Beach…

Can you see the beach? It’s furry foggy efurrywhere!

A day at the beach

Soft sand to run on and dig

Dense fog all around

 

Woooohooooooooo efurrybuddy! This morning Mama took us to a part of the beach we’d never been to before! First we parked way high up above the beach where the sand dunes are at a place called Fort Funston. The fog was so super thick we couldn’t see more than a few feet in any direction. There was lots to sniff and Mama let us dig dig dig! They should re-name this place as Fort Funs-a-ton! WOL!

Me and Nalle checked out the ice plant fur gophers, but did not find any.

Any gophers Nalle?

Doggie Day Care…

KuDayCare

Me furry scared my first day at day care.

We went to day care

Fur the first time last weekend

I was furry scared

 

But Nalle stayed by my side

And then I got brave and played

 

Hewwoooooo Efurrybuddy! This past weekend Me and Nalle went to doggie day care fur both Saturday and Sunday. Mama was working at a Fair and thought it would be best if we had lots of pups to play with all day instead of leaving us alone at home fur hours and hours and hours. We never went to day care before, nor had we ever been without Mama fur such long, long, long treacherous amounts of time. (Before Nalle became my sisfur, Mama once went away fur a couple of days, but I had a cuuwoowooooote babysitter in my own home.)

The first day, Mama talked to us on the drive there, and she told Nalle to watch over me and stay by my side to help me feel less anxious. Here’s what the report card said fur day one:

DayCare1

Nalle listened to Mama!

The second morning, Mama talked to us in the car again, and said I would be more comfortable and will have lots of fun playing with other pups. Here’s the report card fur day two:

DayCare2

Mama was so right!

Day care was not so bad. I would go again, but prefer to be with my Mama. :-D  Wooooooowoooooooooo!

Nalle singing her heart out at day care! Wooooooooooooooooo!
