Another NaNoWoofMo Chapter!

photo 1

Me working on my chapter.

Woooooooowooooooooooo! I’m a lucky pup because I get to write another chapter fur Rocco’s NaNoWoofMo where pet bloggers collaborate (Mama had to help me with that word!) to write our furry own novel! Woooowooooo! There are still spots open. So grab your Mama or Papa by the leash and head on over to Rocco’s House here to sign up!

If you need to catch up on the story, here’s where you can find previous sections:

1) Rocco
2) Ku
3) Hailey and Zaphod
4) Bongo
5) SwamiZoe (my sisfur!)
6) Easy

7) Daisy

And here’s today’s chapter…

There were eight look-a-likes in all! Who were they and what were they all doing in the forest? Before I could bark, the alpha dog stepped right up to my nose and growled. My instinct took over and I growled back, the fiercest, deepest growl I’ve ever growled!

This frightened all of them and they cowered back a few feet. “Who are you?” the alpha dog asked.

“My name is Marvin,” I said, “and I want to live free like my ancestors! I am part Siberian Husky so I think I can figure out how to hunt and make a cozy den in the ground.”

One of the others, a cute female, spoke up, “We all are out here on our own too. We’ve formed our own pack and I’d be delighted if you joined us. My name is Bella and I’m the real Alpha, just like our ancestors had a female as the alpha of their packs. Grumpy here is my little brother. He’s only two and doesn’t know how to behave yet.” As she gave a piercing look towards Grumpy.

Oh pup, my very own pack! We decided to call ourselves the K9 Gang since there were now 9 of us. It was getting late, and we all fell fast asleep. I was in the middle of a dream about me and Bella romping through a field of wildflowers when I was shaken awake. Efurrybuddy jumped up startled, but the shaking didn’t stop. It was an EARTHQUAKE! Terrified we all scattered into the forest and when everything settled I was once again alone.

Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo” I howled out like my ancestors, and I waited fur a response…

Next chapter will be by Kari!

NaNoWoofMo is Here Again!

photo 2

I’m not just a poet and author, I’m a novelist tooowoowooooo!

Wooohoooowooooo Efurrybuddy! It’s November and that means it’s NaNoWoofMo – National Novel Wooofing (or Woooo-ing if you’re a snow pup like me!) Month! And just like last year I am pawticipating in Rocco’s round robin bloggy a novel around the bloggy world. WOL! That means any pet blogger (you don’t have to be a pup) can pawticipate by writing a chapter/post fur one day of the month. He still needs lots of sign-ups so clicky on over to Rocco’s House here to add yourself to the list and to read the first entry into our pet novel!

Here is the next chapter…

I missed my master, but I was also happy to be away from his son. A dog is a pawesome people-energy detector. Now as I detect my way around my new strange surroundings with my nose…sniffs the air…BACON! The drool-inducing scent was wafting around in the breeze which made it hard to figure out what direction it was coming from. Oh pup, was I getting hungry!

Off in the distance I could see a little red farm house. I knew bacon came from frying pans in kitchens, so that had to be the source. I headed towards the house leaving a trail of pee-mail just in case I needed to find my way back. It didn’t take long to reach the farmhouse, but as I approached I saw that it was surrounded by a wire fence. “What should I do?” I thought.

Next chapter will be by Hailey and Zaphod! All entries will be listed over at Rocco’s House here!

A Bear Cub Den!

But, Me and Mama and Nalle are hijacking the Grand Paw’s office interwebbernetters fur the weekend. And to our surprise, the Grand Paw had built us our furry own bear cub den!

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!).

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.

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

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! 😀

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!

And here is our Malamute themed haiku jam. Mine are in purple, and Rumpy’s are in blue:

Malamutes unite

To write haiku together

Extra cookies please?

Malamute smack down

Sharing rhymes, talking some trash

And singing my woos!

We sing for our treats

And harmonize with sirens

The call of the wild

Treats? Did you say treats?

As in, dare I ask, cookies?

I want a cookie

Cookies are great treats

Sardines and bacon better

Did you shop for me?

True, I do eat meat,

But for treats, I’m herbivore

Peanut butter, please

Peanut butter YUCK!

I may be the only pup

Who does not like it!!!

Mmm….peanut butter!

Chick peas are another fave!

Now I am hungry

Eating times at home

Breakfast time and din-din time

Treats any time please!

But before there’s treats

A romp outside to make sure

No squirrel invasion

And check for raccoons

Those sneaky stealthy food thieves

Must inspect the yard

Then time for a nap

To dream of my adventures

And those yet to come

Thank You Misaki!

Blog the Change!

blogthechange“You must be the change

You wish to see in the world”

Gandhi was so wise

 

 

Today is one of the Blog the Change For Animals days! Blog the Change asks:

  • What have you done to Be the Change for Animals?
  • Who do you know who acts tirelessly on the behalf of animals?
  • What favorite cause has a special need right now?

As many of you know, animal rescue is near and dear to my heart. I wrote my book, Kuruk: The Little Bear That Could, One Rescue Pup’s Journey of Healing, to raise money for animal rescue organizations. You can  order it through Create Space or Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Also: Amazon CanadaAmazon UKAmazon India, and other international Amazon stores.

The last Blog the Change, I announced my first donation to the Washington Alaskan Malamute Adoption League (WAMAL). They are the pawesome people who flew me from Alaska to Seattle, where my Mama found me! Since then I have only sold a few books, and I only make maybe a couple dollars per book sale, so no new donation yet. Me and Mama are working on other ways to market my book, but if you can help us out by spreading the word – through Facebook, Twitter, or other social network – we, and all animals in need would very very much appreciate it! Thank youwoooowoooooooooooooooo!

It’s My re-Birthday!

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!
