Meet Miss Georgia

I'm Georgia, and I am a "goberian"--that's half golden retriever and half Siberian husky. My dad is a typical golden retriever, and my mom is a red husky, so who knows how I ended up brown, grey and black? I also have very interesting husky eyes.

That's right, one blue eye and one parti brown/blue eye. In some lights my eyes look almost white and very strange.

These are all my sibblings. That's me at the bottom right.

This is me on the right with my little sister, the only other puppy who looked like me. She had serious heart problems and died on Easter Sunday, the day that I went to my new home.

My friend Jo calls me the "Flying Nun" because my ears stick out and I look like Sally Field from that 1960s tv show.

I went to the dog park for the first time on the weekend, but I was so excited that I couldn't hold still long enough for a good photo.

My mom and dad want me to pull stuff when I get older, so I have to practice wearing a harness.

I can be sort of a silly girl at times.

Introductions, Please!

We were so excited to start our blog and talk all about our beloved chicken that we forgot our manners and didn't introduce ourselves properly.

I'm Dakota, also known as Princess Dak to some of my friends. I am a "huskador", which is a fancy name for being half husky (my dad) and half labrador (my mom), although really I guess I am just a mutt!

I am just over a year now, but I sure was a cute--but grumpy--puppy. I was my mom and dad's first dog. Mom wanted a husky and dad wanted a lab, but they found me and decided I was an okay compromise. They were interested to see what my personality would be--husky or lab?

This picture sums it up. Like any good husky, I loooooove snow! It has only snowed once at my house, but I had great fun running around in it. I am also a very "independent" girl, and everyone says that's the husky in me. Mom and I have done THREE different obedience classes, and I embarrassed her every time because I just laughed when she asked me to do stuff. ("You want me to sit? Nah, maybe tomorrow.") However, like any good lab, I loooooove to retrieve stuff, and this is my favourite toy (besides beloved chicken), a squeaky yellow ball. I am on my third one now because I love them too much... I also enjoy swimming and eating anything that will fit in my mouth. When I was a little pup I scared my mom and dad by eating part of a Coke can, but I was okay.

I am bugging mom to go for a walk now, so Georgia's introduction will have to wait until later. Meanwhile, more pics of me! me! me!

Christmas "Bark in the Park" 2009. Don't I look festive with my red bow?

Duck that I borrowed from my "bad cousins" (more on them in a future blog).

Play bows and bye bye for now!

Chicken Treat Redux

Mom fixed our chicken after that naughty feline furball destroyed our beloved toy. Then dad came in caught us RED PAWED destroying it again (um, we mean destroying it for the first time). Do you think mom will fix it again?

Chicken Treat

Georgia got her shots today, so to make her feel better mom got her a chicken toy at the vet. It got home safely, but within twenty minutes of Dakota getting home from her walk ...

Is this the guilty party?

I mean really does this look like the face of someone that could destroy their little sister's toy ...

Well Georgia looks pretty naive, and those little devil teeth are only sharp enough to annoy ...

Really there is only one creature with a motive, the one who would call the courier to pick up two 'dopey dogs' on a one way journey ...
