Not the Face!

Hello there! Last week we celebrated Thanksgiving. It was so much fun because Cousin Xane, Second Mom Mandy and Uncle LM came to visit from Saint Louis. It seemed like forever since I saw Xane. He was so much more mature and playful. He didn't chase me around all the time like he did in Saint Louis so that was good. I actually got a chance to rest in peace.

I think Xanza had some issues with him though. Xanza saw Mommy putting Xane's crate in the kitchen where his normally is and Xanza got pissed. He kept saying how it wasn't fair for him to sleep outside on the porch while Xane was all warm and cozy inside. He kept saying how Xane was way more bad than him. It was kinda funny! I was thinking, "How can any dog be worse that Xanza". I know, I am mean. LOL

To tell ya the truth, I sorta felt a little bit bad for Xanza. Well almost!

After a few squabbles back and forth outside, him and Xane called a truce. They realized that it was no use fighting and decided to be buds and throw their negative feelings under the bridge.

And guess what...Xanza taught Xane how to go after me and bite my face! I can't believe it - I go from being 3rd dog in the house to 4th! Can you believe it?! Ah well, it doesn't matter, I'm a lover - not a fighter.

End of Summer

Good evening. I apologize for not being diligent with my writing. I've been enjoying these last beautiful summer days. Pretty soon, winter will be here and I will be stuck indoors with cabin fever. I don't like winter very much. I don't get to go outside and play fetch with Master Lors, or hang out with Master Stan when he's doing yard work or grilling. Luckily, Master Lors has been playing fetch with me several times a week so I am in tip top shape going into the winter.

Xanza has even been quite nice lately too. I think he's finally understanding what it takes to be a German Shepard. He has a long way to go, but I believe he's on the right track to being a good, loyal and dependable dog. As a result of his good behavior, he has been getting a lot more freedom while in the house. That is a good sigh. It means that the Masters are beginnng to trust him. He's still not allowed to have free reign of the house while they are out, like me...but that will come in time.

Oh, I almost forgot, a few weeks ago I celebrated my 7th birthday. It was wonderful. Master Lors baked me the most delicious cake I have ever tasted. It was called Peanut Butter Delight, I believe. And I received lots of hugs and kisses from Master Lors. She smothers me so but I do not mind. It makes her happy and that makes me happy.

Getting back Xavier's mojo

Xanza here! How y'all doing? Long time huh?

Well, not much new here. It's Summer so I've been chillin' out in the backyard a lot. Been running and getting into shape. I'm so ripped right now - it's awesome. Oh my God! I'm in a lot better shape than Xavier or Bliz who sit around all day. Even the vet lady told me that I was ripped when I went for my yearly check-up. She was all feeling me all over and gliding her fingers through my fur....oooh that felt so good. I think she has the hots for me! She wants some Xanza lovin'...oh yeah. I think she's cute and all but she ain't my type. I like my biotches with 4 legs.

So, made a friend too. The neighbor at the back of us got a chocolate lab. He's just a young guy but we've been playing and running with eachother along the fence. I know the Humans don't like that very much because the grass gets all torn up but I can't help myself. I feel the need...the need too...um...what was I sayin'?

Oh yeah..next week is Xavier's birthday. He's gonna be the big 7! OMG - that's SO old LOL. But, I feel kinda bad for the guy. He's been backing off at being the alpha dog. He's been letting me have his ball and doesn't care, he's been backin' off on squabbles and even backing off when I growl at him when we both get water.

Don't get me wrong -- I wanna be top dog in dis house but I ain't gonna take it like that. I still gots lots to learn from him so he can't wimp out now. I gotta figure out a way to get him his mojo back. I may not be as smart as him and we may fight a lot but he's my big bro. He's so much better that that brown-nosin'-sissy Bliz!

OMG -- It's my Birthday

Xanza here! Holy crap, can you believe it...today is my birthday! I'm am 5 years young today! Woot woot! I didn't even remember until Mom told me this mornin' and gave me a great big hug. Thx Mom -- luv ya too. You're the only one who remembered. Just for you, I won't beat up Bliz today.

Oh, and Mom said she's gonna bring home an extra special surprise for me today since it's ma special day. I can't wait! Ima gonna make Bliz and Xavier mad as hell. I wonder what she will bring me. I ain't picky but I hope it's something to eat. Like maybe a nice juicy rabbit or maybe a big cake or something. That'd rock! If it's a cake, Ima gonna have to make a wish I guess. I always see the Humans do it. When it's one of their birthdays, they get a cake, light it on fire, close their eyes to make a wish and then blow out the fire again. Kinda silly, if you ask me. I wonder what I should wish for... whatever it is, I can't tell you cuz I heard that it ain't gonna come true.

I am just hoping that Mom doesn't put me on some crazy costume or make me wear some funky hat.

Saint Louis Road Trip

Hello there! I apologize for not writing sooner about my wonderful road trip to Saint Louis. It's been so hot and humid lately and I didn't feel much like blogging.

My trip was simply wonderful. Mommy, Daddy, Grandma Rita and I packed up all our things the Friday before the 4th of July and took a very very long road trip. The trip was about 9 hours long but I sleep most of the way. Every now and again, I would pop my head up and ask Mommy if we were there yet -- but the answer was always, "No".

We finally reached Saint Louis at about 3:00 PM and boy was I happy! I met my cousin Xane for the very first time! Mommy had me pick out a nice new toy to bring for Xane too. He seemed to really like it.

Xane was so energic that I honestly felt like an old dog. Was I ever that hyper? Everywhere I would go, he would follow me. After a couple hours of playing with him, I just wanted to take a nap, but he wouldn't leave me alone...he wanted to play and play. I don't think he's quite use to other doggies being in his home. Daddy even tried to teach Xane some commands. Daddy would have me do the commands first to show Xane and then try it with him next. Daddy even gave him some of my treats but I didn't mind. It got Xane off my back for a little while :-)

Later that evening, Mommy, Daddy, Aunty Mandy and Uncle Marcus all went out to dinner. Grandma Rita stayed home and dogsat us. I love when Grandma watches us...she spoils us so. She plays with us and gives us tasty human food to try. Mommy gets mad at this though - she doesn't want me to get sick from eating foods that I am not use to.

Xane and I just chilled and talked for hours. We got along so well and had a lot in common. I was telling him that he should come to Minnesota and he'd get to meet and play with Xavier and Xanza. He said he'd try and convince his 'rents. I think the reason why we got along so well is because he reminded me to Xanza minus the beating me up part.

After all the humans got back from dinner, we all just relaxed and talked. Mommy and Aunty Mandy played Scrabble while Uncle Marcus and Daddy watched television before we all went to bed and prepared for the 4th of July get-together.

Who Let the Dog Out?

Xanza here! OMG, lemme tell ya about what happened a couple days ago.
I gots me in some trouble.

So, Mommy let me outside to do ma bizness when she got home from work right. Well, that stupid little yippy dog next door started mouthin' off to me yet again. I don't even know what type of dog he is but he's awfully small. I don't even consider him a real dog -- he's so puny. Heck, any dog less that 30 pounds is not a REAL dog. That's just my 1 cents.

His Master is cool though...his name is Carl but damn... that dog I can't stand. Every single day, he comes up to the fence and starts talkin' crap to me. He's always sayin' how he can take me, or how he can own me, or how I am no match for him, or how German Shepards sux, or how I have no cajones. Tell me -- what the hell is cajones?! Is that like some Cajun food or sumtin? If it is, I can go for sum of dat.

Well, that dog pisses me off so much that I start barkin' at him (which usually gets the Humans upset at me). And to make matters worse, he always be laughin' at me that I am behind the fence and can't get out. He comes right up the the fence and taunts me! OMG - you don't know how much that pisses me off.

Well a couple days ago he was at it again! He started spewin' stuff about Mom. He started tellin' these aweful "Yo Momma" jokes. I couldn't take it anymore. He wasn't gonna disrespect the only person in this whole wide world that loved me. So, I found a way to get under the fence. Was seriously going off some high adrenalan and I went after him at full speed. OMG...it was so friggin' funny. He got SO scared that he froze for a second then ran straight into his house. He never even came back out.

His Master, Carl, started rollin'. But then Carl went to go get Mom to let her know that I was out of backyard and running around the street. When she opened the door and saw me outside, she did not have a happy face. She quickly called me and I ran into the house and in my crate.

Even though, she was mad at me for a bit, I don't regret it. All in a days work if I scared that lil dog shiatless.

Kick Boxing Bliz

Boy have things been busy around the house! Both Mommy and Daddy started taking this kick boxing class a few weeks ago. They seem to be enjoying it a lot, although, they often have very sore muscles the day after. That's no fun at all. Been there, done that while chasing many a rabbit in the backyard.

I was thinking that it would be cool to join that class too! But unfortunately, they don't allow doggies. Places discriminate SO much against dogs. It's so not fair! Now I know how women felt when they couldn't have the same rights as men and Blacks not being able to do same things as Whites. More people should allow doggies to go into Human places

But, as I was saying, it would be fun to take kick boxing with Mommy and Daddy. I can learn how to be strong and defend myself. And anytime Xanza tries to be a bully and beat up on me, I can give him a great jab or hook in the face and make him see birdies. Oooh, that would be SO much fun. Then, maybe he'll give me some respect.

I think Xanza is probably mad at me because Mommy decided to take me with her on a road trip to Saint Louis. Mommy, Daddy, Grandma Rita and I are all going to visit Aunty Mandy & Uncle Marcus. I simple can't wait to meet my cousin, Xane. I hope he likes me. I hear he's got lots of energy like me so I'm sure we will spend hours and hours playing together. Mommy said that sometimes Xane can be quite naughty though and that I should teach him some good manners while I am there. I must remember to do that because, I was quite naughtly myself in my youth. Sure I had a cute face, but I was bad to the bone.

Anyways, I will surely write and let you all know how fabulous my trip is. I'm so excited! This will be my 2nd official road trip to another state. I went to Chicago a few years ago and that was loads of fun. I'm sure Saint Louis will be even better! STL here comes The Bliz!

Playing fetch

I just wanted to give thanks to my Mom. Even though she's been occupied with many errands and projects lately, she still finds time in her very busy day to spend time with me. On her lunch breaks from work, she sometimes drives home to eat lunch and spend some time with me. She would eat her sandwich quickly and then she would take my favorite red kong ball in the backyard and we would play fetch. Also, in the afternoons, even though she's super tired, she'd take a few minutes to play fetch again. I love her and just wanted to thank her. It's only a few minutes but it means the worlds to me. I think that everyone should take a few minutes of their day to do something nice...even when things can seem overwhelming.

Screw Timmy!

Xanza here! How y'all doin'? Me, I've been great. Lots of changes goin' on in da crib. First of all, my Humans opened up a foto bizness. They are workin' very hard. I can't wait for them to be done and then take some pics of me...once the world sees this magnificent face, I will be a STAR! And when I am a star, the white one can be my chauffer and butler. Muahahaha...that would be awesome to boss Bliz around all day.  I'd have a lil bell and ring it every time I want something. Woot woot!

Heck, I just had an idea, I can be the next Lassie! I'd be good too. Sure I ain't no Collie but that doesn't matter. I am in good shape, I run a lot, I can bark AND if I do say so myself...quite handsome. The ladies like that...oh yeah.

Back to Lassie, oh my God, that would rock. Lassie is my all time hero. Sure, I'd be a male playing a female but I can dig it if it means, riches, ladies and stardom.  To be in that many shows and movies and remembered for all of time would be sweet.

I'd get to play a cool hero on tv and everyone would love me. But...I don't know about this Timmy brat though...he's friggen stoopid. What sorta of kid falls down a well multiple times and expect their dog to come and rescue them each time. Um..no thanks. Once maybe, twice if you're lucky but more than that...you're on your own Tim. Sorry bud, it's a ruff world..just gotta deal. Timmy go down the hole and stayed there...lol. I know I am bad but hey....it's survival of the fittest. If Timmy can't figure out a way to get outta a 5 foot deep hole, then the world will go on without him. Tough nuts kid.

My busy Masters

I apologize that it has taken me such a long time to write. Master Lors and Master Stan have been quite busy for the past few weeks and I have been unable to use their laptops at my leisure. I figure it must be quite important so I let them use their computers - no questions asked. From what I gathered, they have started up a photography business. Master Lors takes absolutely beautiful flower photos and they are trying to share them with the world. I believe they are starting to put their photos on Ebay. Feel free to check them out.

They both have been working very long days at their normal jobs and then come home and work another 5-6 hours in the evenings. I do not understand where they get their energy from. It's as if they are running on jet fuel like Aunty Molly! If I don't get my 16 hours of beauty sleep, I simply cannot function.

I looked on the wall calendar and it appears that tomorrow is their wedding anniversary. I hope they remember to take some time for each other. Otherwise, I may have to be a "bad boy" and knock the calendar and point to the date with my paw. I hope that it does not have to come to that.

I can't believe it's been seven years already! I've lived with them for approximately 6.5 years so I feel as though that I am apart of their celebration as well. I wish them many more wonderful years. Before Blizzard came along, the three of us did everything together. They were such wonderful parents. They wanted to raise me properly so they were constantly researching every aspect of living with a dog. At times they were strict but they always showered me with lots of love and affection. I must admit, sometimes I did try to test their boundaries and came to learn rather quickly that they meant business. I would not be the dog I am today if it was not for them. Thank you Masters!

Blizzard's Identity Crisis

For those of you that do not know, I sorta had an identity crisis a few years ago. When I was growing up, I was caught between multiple worlds and it utterly confused me. The Masters of my biological parents told Mommy that I was a mutt. I later found out that it meant that it was a mix between two or more breeds. I was half Alaskan Malamute and half Siberian Husky.

When Mommy would take me for walks, no one would believe that I was a Malamute/Husky mix. It made me quite sad and I could tell that Mommy was annoyed at them too. She loved me for being me, and it did not matter to her if I was "just a mutt". Plus, when I was in Puppy Training class, all the pure bred dogs would be so snobby to me and did not want to play with me. I got so mad at them that sometimes I would slowly sneak up to them and give them a big poke with my paw. Take that!

To make matters even worse, when I would accompany Xavier to Schutzhund training in Wisconsin, people would think that I was a white German Shepard. Can you believe that!? I look nothing like a German Shepard dog. All the humans there only liked German Shepards and they just poked fun at me. It made me feel like I was not a real dog because I was not a purebred. Tell me...why must people make fun of those who are different? I just don't understand it.

I felt so torn between who I should be that I rebeled quite a bit in my youth. I destroyed things around the house, marked things all over, dug big holes in the backyard, and ran away multiple times. I don't know what I was thinking back then, I was just angry and confused at everything around me.

A few years later, I found out that I was actually not Malamute at all...I was a Samoyed/Husky mix. It was at that point that I realized that I just had to be me. Those things did not define who I was, my actions did. I had a wonderful Mommy and Daddy, and two awesome brothers. And even though, we did not share the same blood, we were family. That's what it is all about.

Woot for Mom!

Xanza here! So, Xavier & da Bliz told me that tomorrow is Motha's Day and that I should be extra nice to Mom and thank her fer stuff. Well, I don't quite know what all this Motha's Day business is about but I think it's kinda silly to just preciate ( I just learned this word...woot) your mom once a year. I preciate Motha each and every day! I preciate her for feedin' me, givin' me water, playin' with me and all sorts of stuff. I am most thankful for when dad complains about giving me away -- she comes to my rescue and say there's no way he's givin' me away! Thanks Mom - luv ya! You are the best! Enjoy this so-called Motha's Day but remember I think you are awesome every 350...um..360?....um..365 days (yeah, that's it!) a year. Woot for moms everwhere! Raise da woof, y'all!

Happy Mother's Day

To the most wonderful mother I have ever known, I want to thank you for...

... embracing me with your body when I had a fever and was not feeling well.

... carrying me up the flight of stairs in the backyard when I hurt my leg (I know that I was not light).

... grooming me so that I would look and be my best.

... cleaning up after me after I threw up multiple times in the backseat of your new car.

... not yelling at me when I chewed up your birthday gift from your sister.

... coming to Wisconsin for so many weeks to watch me perform Schutzhund with Dad.

... bringing home a new rubber ball when I lost my old one.

... still buying a dog bed when I've chewed up the one I had so many times.

... for picking me when all my other siblings were much more out-going and energetic.

... taking me on wonderful car rides.

... bringing Blizzard home so that I would not be lonely and I would have a brother.

... letting me finish licking the inside of your yogurt container.

... telling me you love me each and every day.

Walk with the animals.

Hello! I am sorry that I didn't get a chance to write sooner, I was simply exhausted after the big walk yesterday. When I got home, I just collapsed and feel fast asleep. My paws were hurting so much - ouchie! Both Grandma and Mommy were tired too. We had so much fun this year. I met so many wonderful doggies and got lots of compliments from all the humans. Everywhere I went, they told me how adorable, precious and beautiful I am! It's always nice to hear such things.

I even got a chance to meet a real pony and the Fox 9 camera man recorded me while I was kissing and snuggling with it. I might be on the news!


We saw so many wonderful things. There were dog-related stores, activities, contests, music and lots more. I got a bunch of free toys and treats too including a cool bandanna for raising money for the Animal Humane Society! I let Xavier have the purple tennis ball I won and gave Xanza a frisbee they gave away for free. Mommy and I won this contest called Red Light Green Light - we were the first to cross the finish line. The judge said that I had a wonderful sit.

I had so much fun with Mommy. I love spending time with her. I can't wait for next year's walk!


Mommy took some pictures of the event so feel free to check it out.

German Shepard 101 - Part I

Xanza here! So, been talkin' to Xavier yesterday while the humans were gone and he thinks I need to be a better dog. He keeps sayin' that I'm a disgrace to my breed. I have no idea what he's talkin' about...I breathe just fine. Sure..sometimes...I get an occasional piece of kibble stuck all up in there...but everything usually turns out ok.

Xavier says that he don't want to hurt my feelings but that I should try and follow his lead. For example, he says that when the Masters feed us that I should politely sit and wait and then the Masters will be happy with me. Well, I tried that and it don't seem to work!! I figured that I'd impress the Masters and sit over and over. (If one sit can impress them...why not more). OMG - and between every sit, I ran around in this cool circle! I musta sat like 50 times but for some reason the Masters didn't look too happy. Xavier musta gave me the wrong info.

Xavier also said that to be a good German Shepard, I gotta be strong, intelligent and a protector. I been thinkin' about this for a very long time (since this morning) and I think I gots what it takes. OMG - I am totally strong! I beat up on the white one so much. Oh, and also I am a lean mean fighting machine when it comes to destroying these weird creatures that the Masters bring home called toys. The ones that look like animals, I completely own! Woot woot!

I think I'm pretty intelligent too, in fact I think I am not just pretty intelligent, I am awesomely intelligent...in fact..."intelligent" happens to be MY middle name. (psst..."Yo Bliz, what does intelligent mean? If you tell me, I won't bite your face today").

Oh, and last but not least, I'm a great protector! Once I get that Xavier's toy, I carry it around in my mouth for hours. I even take it when I go do ma business.

Heck, I'm such a good protector that if someone broke into ma house and tried to distract me with something I like...I'd so be SO on top of it. Woot!

Rain rain go away...

Today is such a gloomy and rainy day. I heard Mommy tell Daddy that it was raining cats and dogs but when I went to go check, I saw no such thing! Hmph - that would have been fun to see!

I was hoping that Mommy could take me to dog park today but the weather is very yucky outside. I don't want to get all muddy and wet because that means Mommy has to put me in the crate for several hours. When I was younger, I use to get dirty and wet all the time...and couldn't play until I was all nice and dry. That was no fun at all :-(

Last night Auntie Molly & Uncle Peter came over after going out to eat something called sushi. I don't exactly know how it is made but I keep hearing Mommy and Daddy say that it is made of raw fish and you eat it with sticks. I couldn't believe it! Humans eating raw?! I am impressed. This sushi stuff sounded quite tasty and I hope that someday I am able to try some.

It was so nice to see Auntie Molly and Uncle Peter again. I love when other humans come and visit and they give me lots of attention. All I have to do is walk up to them, look at them with these adorable brown eyes, give them a sweet smile or a kiss and I get lots and lots of pats on the head and belly rubs. Oooh, belly rubs are my absolute favorite thing.

Oh I almost forgot, Auntie Molly let me smell her wonderful hair again!! If you don't know already, I sorta have an itsy bitsy fetish with hair. I love the smell of all the wonderful scents from the shampoo in human hair. I love it so much that I rub my head all over it and often get too carried away. Sorry Auntie Molly.
