Mama in shower

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…

There were treats, treats, and more treats

A pawfect pawty!

 

 

 

 

Woooohooowoooooo Efurrybuddy! Yesterday Me and Sisfur Nalle took Mama to the Doggie Fest and we tired Mama out! It was a 2 mile walk to the park where the pawty was. There were lots of doggies there of course, and lots and lots of different kinds of treats, and food samples, and puppy stuff, and people to meet! If I had a pawty, it would be like this was! Woooowoooooooo!

Daily Prompt: Young at Heart

 

 

Wooooohooooowooooooo Efurrybuddy! Last Saturday Me and Mama and Nalle went on an adventure and visited MamaJo and all the beauwooowoooootiful Goldens (5 of them!) and babies (9 of them!) and horsies and goats and a wild (!!!) burro and two Manx kitties at The Sundog Drift Ranch! I drank out of a big big pond called a swimming pool and dug a big big big hole fur a nest to keep cool in as it warmed up on the ranch near the Sierra Mountains. We all had a pawesome time! All the babies are spoken fur, but clicky on over to the ranch to fill your heart with youth-inducing cuteness! Woooooowooooooooo!

Looking for dinosaur bones

May have to dig to China

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wooohooowooooo Efurrybuddy! I’ve been furry busy in my retirement from being a busy busy author! I’ve been trying lots of new things, and this week on an impulse I decided to become a paleontologist (that’s a dinosaur archaeologist!). I am working furry furry hard on the hunt fur monstrous dinosaur bones. Mama says those may be the only bones strong enough to hold up to my Malamute jaws. Here’s what I have accomplished so far with my intensive labor:

Here is dig site number one. No dinosaur bones, but a great place to store my tennis ball!

photo 2

Site number two. This is hopeful. Found some ancient roots over the course of three days of hard hard labor. I will keep digging here fur sure!

Site number three got flooded in the rain. Will have to reassess after laboring more at site number two!

Me and Nalle ready to go on new adventures!

It’s time to move on

To do more important things

It’s been lots of fun

 

As a retired author

I will get to hike lots more!

 

Daily Prompt: Don’t You Forget About Me

From Mama: Hi everyone and efurryone! Ku has decided to semi-retire from being a writer and blogger. It has been lots of fun, and we will visit all of you once in a while because you have given us so many smiles and giggles. We thank you all for the joy you and your pets have filled in our hearts. Ku wants to have more time to go hiking, and we are all ready for new adventures.

Ku’s and his sisfur Swami Zoe’s books will still be available for purchase to support animal rescue, and the blogs will remain as websites. I spent a good 6 months working to promote them here and in many other ways, and have learned more than I could have imagined about self-publishing (I have other books too, click here), marketing, etc. and especially what does not work. However, the time I have to work to earn money is very limited (as in needing a very flexible or work-at-home schedule) given that I am helping care for my mother, who has Alzheimer’s among other mental issues, and the house. I have here and there found some freelance work (though no one seems to want to pay writers much, if anything).

I have much bigger book projects that I am working on, that are much better candidates for publishers, and am now focusing on building my spiritual counseling/life coaching/healing practice. Both of these things, writing and helping others, is my passion and my greatest skills, and they need as much time as I can give to them now. I will still be around the blogosphere as my main blog, Through the Peacock’s Eyesis the online aspect of all that I have been building over the the past year plus.

If anyone is interested in my services, Astrology, Tarot, and Life Coaching, please click here to find out more.

From Ku: Efurrybuddy, please don’t forget about me, I won’t forget you! I will beg ask Mama clicky-fingers secretary nicely to visit your bloggies from time to time. It’s been lots of fun, but time fur new adventures! Much wuvwuvwuv and woooohooooowooooooooooo! xoxoxo, Kuruk Babybear

p.s. I will occasionally compose a Haiku in my semi-retirement, just not efurryday! Woooowoooooo! 🙂

Working Fur Free…

HandsomeKuWe’ve worked very hard

To promote my pawesome book

To help animals

 

But sales are barely there

And we are getting poorer

 

 

 

 

Daily Prompt: Money For Nothing

Hi Efurrybuddy, Me and Mama have been having serious discussions. You see, we are overly giving souls, and have spent hundreds of hours blogging, emailing, going places, and talking to people to market and promote my book to raise awareness and money to donate to animal rescue. We thank those who have bought my book and who have tweeted, re-blogged, etc.!!! 

However, sales are so so so so slow (only 7 so far in the last 3 months – and we did print-on-demand self-publishing so royalties are $2 or less per book) that we are considering shutting down. Though we need the money, we have committed to donating 50% of sales. We made our first donation before even covering costs, which we have now just barely done. I told Mama that if this is not going anywhere then we could stop so she could spend more time looking for income and building her spiritual counseling practice (Astrology and Tarot/Oracle Readings – she is furry furry good!), which she juggles around caring fur the Grandma who has Alzheimer’s and doing all the housekeeping fur the Grand Paw.

Sorry fur the sad-ish post, but we are feeling furry discouraged lately and need to re-assess efurrything so that we do not go hungry (this is not an exaggeration either).

Daily Prompt: Fast Forward

Woooooohoooooowoooooooo Efurrybuddy! It’s my re-Birthday! In case you don’t know my story, here’s the lovely tribute sisfur Zoe at Swami Zoe’s Yoga and Zen wrote fur me:

Me-Ommmmm Efurryone! I’m so excited to tell efurryone that Saturday the 11th is my little brofur Kuruk’s re-Birthday! Yes, you read that right. You see, Ku was born at a puppy mill in Alaska and lived on a 4-foot chain his first couple of years of life. Luckily the puppy mill was shut down and Ku and his whole pack of nearly 160 snow pups went into rescue. That day was 1-11-11! When Mama brought Ku home, she decided that since no one knew Ku’s real birthday that 1-11-11 would be Ku’s first re-Birthday! So Ku is going to be 4!!! He’s come such a long long way in the past three years. Me and Mama and efurryone are so so proud of my little brofur Ku! We wuvwuvwuv you Ku!
