Arrival Story:
Sidney was a stray who was found by another client that uses the same vet. That person loved him, but could not keep him. Because I had prior experience with this breed, the vet called me and suckered me into taking him. It really didn't require much arm twisting, I must admit. He has been with us 5 years now. He was formerly called Blizzard for those transitional weeks.

Sidney has two brothers Rocky (Lab Mix) and Niquel (American Eskimo) as well as two sisters Terra (Lab Mix) and Sasha (Dalmation Mix). Sidney is extremely high strung and bossy. Did I mention he wants to be in control? He receives excellent care from the wonderful doctors and staff at: -- link removed --

Happy Post Superbowl!! Hopefully everyone has recovered from football season by now. Of course, we know we still have the Pro-Bowl coming up, but then what are we supposed to scratch ourselves to, for the next couple of weeks? It is a while yet until March Madness, and Baseball Season is still a ways off. Of course, I am always offended that they only use frogs, lizards, horses and BIG dogs in the commercials for the Superbowls. Have any of my other small dog pals ever noticed that? I was so glad they went with Prince for the half-time show to compensate for the commercials. I mean throw us a bone already. It really ticked the BIG dogs off in this house that I got to dance around with the mom during the half-time show. Dad even tolerated it and only rolled his eyes when mom asked him to turn up the surround sound. Afterall, he turned it up for the game and the lousy commercials. So, eat your heart out BIG dogs. I just hope the advertisers learned something from all of this. If a little guy like Prince can still do it up BIG during a monsoon, why can't a small dog have a commercial spot? Think on that one Budweiser, will ya? It isn't like your beer is all that good. The only thing you have going for you are your cool commercials, your horses, and your polky-dots and please don't ask me my personal opinion on polky-dots.

Well at least the one polky-dot in this house isn't whining about the cold this year. She has actually adapted well to the cold. She has adapted better than the mom. I always like the cold. I am afterall, an American Eskimo and cold is what I do. That and annoy the BIG dogs. Oh and pee through the fence at the neighbor dogs. But that's another story for another day. But the polky-dot that lives here has actually been pretty cool this year. Hanging outside with me and not even seeming to notice the frigid temperatures. So, I am quite impressed with her quick adaptation. No whining from her, not even once this year. She may be an ok dog afterall.

All you dogs think about it and consider getting on those big advertising companies who spend all that money on those stupid commercials and ask yourself why there are no small, cute, little dogs like me or like you or like my friend BUDY in those adverstisements? I bet BUDY could find a forever home with that kind of exposure and I am sure they could sell more stale beer for sure. They could at least sell orthopedic dog beds for those of us who are seniors. So think about it, why don't you. And while you are at it, consider giving BUDY his forever home.

Love to all of you!

I certainly hope all my pals had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their families. I also hope that despite the fact they had to spend time with the extended family, they still found something for which they could be thankful. I have been elected the "official" Thanksgiving spokesdog in this family and am here to tell you that all of us are thankful to have found homes. We were all in need of rescue from one situation or another and somehow we have all managed to find a home together with someone who understands us, provides for our needs, loves us, keeps us safe and even protects us from ourselves at times. That would be me when I get in the faces of the big dogs and give my opinion a little too freely. The parents have their hands full protecting me from myself. So, we were all blessed to find a home with parents who took the time to learn our personalities and breeds and see what it takes to make it work for us as a family. Sometimes that is, "Sidney, sit down and hush!"

We are also thankful to have our parents home for a long weekend with us, cuz we kind of like having them with us so they can open and close that back door a million times a day to let one of us in as two go out! BOL Actually it worked to our benefit today as our goofy refrigerator decided to catch fire this morning. It was quite a surprise to the dad. It all of a sudden made a funny noise and then proceeded to smoke up the kitchen and living room in just minutes. The stupid refrigerator has only been here a couple of years and is practically new, but of course just old enough to be out of warranty. Dad acted quickly and unplugged it and got someone here to get it fixed. It really scares Mom to think what would have happened if it had only been us dogs here.

And finally we want to say how thankful we are for the excellent group of pals we have made here on dogster. You guys are the top dogs anywhere in the world. Thanks for being such wonderful pals to us!

And one more thing, don't forget to drop by and visit Budy. He could sure use a forever home during his retirement years: BUDY

Wow! Eskie weather has returned to the East Coast! I love this brisk weather. I go outside and want to run and run like a little maniac dog. I run over to the fence line and visit the neighbor dogs and I don't even bark at them, because I am in such a wonderful mood! The only thing left now is a little snow and all will be perfect in my little American Eskimo world! Oh, and if Rocky and Sasha would take a bath.

They are really starting to build quite a funk. They remind me of "Pigpen" from the Peanuts. They have their little cloud of dirt following them around. Perhaps I can get Mom to call my groomer and introduce them to soap and water. (Especially Ms. Polky-dotted Diva, who can't stand the water!!) Although, I must admit that most of her funk, comes from rolling around in the grass with the Grand Funkmaster Rocky. Maybe this is something for you to consider when planning your time this weekend, Mom or Dad! Terra and I would greatly appreciate it!

Fall is showing promise from my perspective. I have also begun my letter to Santa and I am keeping a list of all of the bad stuff the other dogs do, just in case Santa needs help remembering. I figure I need all of the points I can get and this may just give me an edge this year. I am even thinking of telling him to bring Terra a coat. She doesn't normally want one, since she has that Border Collie fur. However, I know she has those bad hips and I see her hurt some times. I think it may help. As for me, I would like a plane ticket to Iowa to go play with Diesel, Boolynn, Aloha, Cash, and Jackson. They get to go to a farm and run around and act like real dogs. And I bet they don't smell half as bad as two other dogs who live in this house and shall remain nameless (Rocky and Sasha).

Well mom says I have to go for now, so I will end by wishing my very favorite Uncle Troy a Very Happy Belated Birthday. Since he is on a diet, I made the ultimate sacrifice and ate those french fries he likes to keep away from me. It was a difficult blow to my sexy, little, furry figure, but I did it for my very special, favorite Uncle cuz he loves me so very much! And one more thing, don't forget to drop by and visit Budy. He could sure use a forever home during his retirement years: BUDY
