A New Friend you guys Should Check out!

The only way that I have gotten followers from Blogging, is by commenting on others posts, letting them know to come check me out, and by having awesome friends that help promote me on their more popular blogging pages. So I feel it's only right that I do what I can to help out a fellow newcomer as well!

Please take a minute of your time and go check out the FiveSibes

They are new to blogging, but so far I have read a few interesting blogs from them! Blogging is all about community! So Everyone should head on over and say hello to them!

New Camera! Laptop is Back! I love my Siberian Husky

To see more of our Beautiful Huskies, Check out our Channel and Please subscribe!

I am so happy to have my Laptop Back!! Oh how we missed that! Shelby is so happy I can cuddle on the couch while working once again. Also, if you couldn't tell, the quality of our videos has gotten better. We got a new HD Camcorder. It's a JVC GZ-HD300 and so far I am REALLY happy with it!

You may have noticed I showed a crack in Shiloh's nose. If you are not a follower of our blog, you may not know the story behind her nose. I took her to the vet a few weeks ago for her yearly checkup. Her nose had cracked open just a few days before. The vet said it may be to a vitamin defficiency, but he is pretty sure it's not that because she is on a very high quality food. So have to put A & D Ointment on her nose every few hours. It looks a lot better then it did! She still may have to go back to the vet though.

Huron Humane Society of Alpena

I volunteer at our local animal Shelter, the Huron Humane Society of Alpena. Currently I am also the Vice President on their board. I thought that I would share their Youtube page with you guys! I have been going to the shelter and taking videos of the animals and editing them together and putting them up on Youtube in hopes that someone who many not want to go to the Shelter, Might see one of the Videos, and see a Cat or Dog that they know they just can't live without.

I must say, it's not easy to do. It's hard to go there and see all of those homeless animals, and have to leave them all there! But at least I can leave knowing I am doing part in trying to find them a good home!

The Huron Humane Society is a No Kill Shelter! If you want to donate to the Shelter, You can send Paypal donations to

So here are a whole bunch of links for you to check out!

Memory Monday

I saw this on a few other people's blogs, and it inspired me to start doing my own. So from now on on each Monday, I will post a picture, and tell a story of what was going on. Just a past memory to share with all of our friends.

This picture was taken on April 7, 2002. This was a dog we met while at an event in Arizona called Bark in the Park. I do not remember this beautiful dogs name, but I remember the story! He was a 6 month old Pit Bull who had been hit by a car. You can see the stiches up the side of his leg. This dog was so playful and happy to be around people and other dogs. It was like he knew he had a second chance at life! Shiloh got to meet him and she had a lot of fun playing with him. Every time I see a Pit Bull, I think of this dog. He was the sweetest, most gentle dog! You would think after being through such a tramatic event that he would be different. His owners said they thought about not bringing him to the event, but he was just so happy to get in the car they had to bring him. What a sweet dog!

And that is my Memory for Monday

Dog Whisperer's Pit Bull, Daddy Passes Away

I just heard that the Dog Whisper, Cesar Millan, lost a very dear friend of his. Daddy the Pit bull passed away from old age. I have to say, that watching the show, Daddy really gave me a new appreciation for the Pit Bull breed. He really helped teach people that it's not the dog that is mean, it's the owner that trains them in that way.

Daddy was a role model of canine good behavior. He was so amazing to watch on TV.
Here is the Tribute that was posted on the National Geographic Youtube Channel.
Daddy, you will be missed! Cesar and the rest of your family are all in our hearts

Shelby goes to the Dog Park!

To see more of our Beautiful Huskies, Check out our Channel and Please subscribe!

We have a new Indoor Dog Park opening in our hometown which is awesome because we don't even have an outdoor dog park! I am friends with the people who are opening it, so we got to go check it out! I took Shelby and left Shiloh home for the first visit. Shelby hasn't played with to many other dogs, and I just wanted to be sure that she would be well behaved.

She did awesome! She played with Max, Sophie, Ella, and Maxwell! As you can see there is a agility course there too! Shelby is going to start learning how to do agility!! Won't that be fun!!!

We can't wait for our next visit to the Dog Park!

Another fun Week!

Lots went on this past week! We went to the dog sled races on Saturday and Sunday. Shiloh and Shelby had to stay home, but we weren't gone to long. As a bonus for the girls, their best friend Sunshine the St. Bernard came over on Sunday to play! We had a lot of fun! Monday was pretty boring around here. I edited together the Tuesday video, and the dogs watched the Olympics. Tuesday I had more board meeting for the Huron Humane Society (or local shelter). And I uploaded the Sled Dog Racing video (If you haven't seen it, it's posted on the blog or on our channel at ) Wednesday was the most fun we had all week! We got to go and visit the new indoor dog park that is opening up in March. Luckily for us, we know the owner! Shiloh and Shelby had a blast! I took some video and it will probably be my Tuesday video this week. Shelby learned how to do the agility tunnel this time! So now she knows jump, and tunnel! Shiloh. . well she wasn't so interested in the course. She just wanted to play with all her new friends!

So today is Friday! Happy Friday everyone! I am not sure what is going on this weekend. We were talking about taking the girls skiing! Depending on the weather and the snow. . we will see!
Have a good weekend all of our dear friends!!!

Every so often I like to make Homemade Dog Treats for Shiloh and Shelby. This time we made Valentine Dog Cookies! And here is the recipe so you can make some for your dogs!

1 1/2 Cups Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
1/4 Cup Carob Powder
1 Tablespoon ground Flax Seed (Optional)
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Water
1 Tablespoon Honey


In a small bowl combine the wheat flour, rolled oats, carob, flax seed, and baking powder. Set aside. In a separate bowl beat together the egg, water, and honey. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well blended and forms a stiff dough.

Place on floured surface and roll to desired thickness. Cut into heart shapes. Bake at 300 degrees. If rolled to 3/8" baking time is 30 minutes to 35 minutes.

Tip: Make these valentine dog treats something really special by drizzling with carob. Melt carob chips in the microwave or double boiler and drizzle over treats.

Woo Woooo Friday!

What a week it has been! My laptop arrived at the repair center today, so hopefully that will be fixed soon. I really miss it! So does Shelby! She always sits with me when I am on it. . and now she is confused because I am always at my desk instead of on the couch when I work!

We took Shiloh to the vet on Tuesday. She has a crack on both sides of her nose that is open and red. They told us that she may have a vitamin defficiency, but he isn't sure. He said she is on a really good quality food, so it might be something else. So I have to put A & D ointment on it for the next two weeks to see if it helps. So far. . it hasn't helped. He said the next step will be high does vitamins, and then if that doesn't work, he has to do some kind of biopsy. I tell ya, Shiloh has always been the one to give us the issues when it come to going to the vet. Every few months it's something new with her, since the day we got her! From Food allergies, to digestive infections, to anal glands being impacted, oh. . she has been a sick dog her whole life. Sometimes I just feel so bad for her!

Anyway, on a good note, we did go to the new Indoor Dog Park that is opening up in our area! We are friends with the owner, so we get sneak peaks! Tuesdays video will have a few shots of it in it. What fun that was. I was so happy to see Shiloh actually playing with other dogs. Normally she is a bit . . well. . shy hehehe.

So that is our week! Tomorrow we are going to watch the Thunder Bay Classic Sled Dog races not to far from our house. So that will be fun! Oh and tomorrow's video will be us making "Chocolate" Valentine Dog cookies! The girls helped me make them yesterday (and they are made with Carob, not chocolate duh!)

So happy Friday to all of our friends! We hope to gain more followers soon! Oh one more thing, we hi 300 subscribers on our Youtube Channel this week! How exciting! Have a good weekend everyone!

Shiloh & Shelby go to PetSmart! Siberian Husky

To see more of our Beautiful Huskies, Check out our Channel and Please subscribe!

So since my Laptop broke and I am waiting on it to get shipped back from the warranty center, I decided it was time to upgrade my Desktop! So we headed over to Traverse City which is 135 miles away from where we live. We decided to take Shiloh and Shelby and treat them to a trip to PetSmart!

Shelby has never been in a PetSmart! So this was her first experience. Shiloh has been a few times in her life, so it wasn't anything new to her. They each picked out a few bones and were happy! So enjoy watching their shopping trip to PetSmart!

8 Years ago Today

Eight years ago today, we brought Shiloh home. She was a sickly little thing. She came from a Pet Store in Tucson, Arizona called Animal Kingdom. At the time, I was working at the store, and I had already been trying to help Shiloh with her issues for over two weeks.

When Shiloh arrived at the store, she was terrified of people, loud noises, and she had green stuff coming out of her eyes, nose, and rear. She was a sick puppy. They put her on all kinds of medicine. Because I knew she was a special case, every day when I came into work, I would take her into the puppy room and play with her. She always hid in the furthest corner away from me. She would just tremble like crazy!

I tried very hard to find her a home, but no one wanted her, she was so sick and scared all the time, the company was talking about having her put down. None of the medicines they were giving her were helping, and she wasn't "puppy" like, so she wouldn't sell quickly. When I heard this news, I was devestated.

The decision was made that we would take her home. As soon as the company heard that, they decided she was still worth money. So not only did we have to pay the full price for her, we were now stuck with this sick and terrified puppy.

When we got home, she hid underneath our coffee table for the first few days. We would put her food and water just outside the edges of the table, but she felt safe there, so we didn't presure her too much.

When she saw grass for the first time it was so amazing! I don't think she had ever seen it! She probably lived her whole young life inside of a cage. She was a very strange husky puppy. She was not very hyper, only seldom did she get excited, and because everything scared her, she was easy to train. I think we potty trained her in two weeks because she didn't like to hear the word no.

Shiloh was born in a Puppy Mill in Dixion Missouri. She was taken from her mom around 3 - 4 weeks of age, put on a semi-truck, and shipped to Phoenix, Arizona. From there she was put in a van and dropped off at the store in Tucson. Shortly after we purchased Shiloh, I was fired from that pet store, for telling a woman how sick the puppy was that she had just purchased. It was worth getting fired. Everything you hear about pet stores is true. The puppies are in deplorable conditions, and even though the stores may look clean, so much goes on behind the walls that you don't see.

Shiloh is 8 years old. She has officially lived with us for 8 years. She is the best friend a person could ever ask for. I hope she makes it at least another 8 years, if not more. I love her very very much.

Siberian Husky in a Shelter, Needs a Home!

(Yes, My laptop is still broken)
This morning I visited our local animal shelter to take some videos for their Youtube Channel I am working on. There is a Siberian Husky there named Chico, who I found fitting to introduce you to.
Chico is about 10 years old. He is a male, unneutered Siberian Husky. He is a sweetheart! He was an owner turnover. Apparently he kept getting out and running away, so the owner just gave up on him and turned him over to the Shelter.
He has been at the Shelter for almost 6 months now. The Huron Humane Society of Alpena is a no-kill Shelter. They do everything they can to find homes for these animals.
If you would like to make a donation to the HHS in honor of Chico the paypal address is
We know everyone is tight on money right now. If you can think of another way you want to help, Private message me!
Shiloh and Shelby would love to help Chico find a home.

Thanks so much for watching!

Blog Theme

So I have no idea how to pretty up my blog. I think I need to theme it out. My husband does graphic design work, and he can make images and such for me, but I just don't know how to make them look good on here!

Shiloh and Shelby had a relaxing evening this morning. Just kind of laid around all night! Shelby is currently under my husbands desk, and Shiloh is under mine. Silly girls!

Oh, and the computer guy was able to save the Data off of my harddrive (Well most of it), so now I just have to send out my Laptop to be repaired by Acer! Whoo Hooo!

All our Love
Shiloh, Shelby, and Their Mom
