Thanks FiveSibes!


Wooo Hooo!  I got the Stylish Blogger Award from the Five Sibes!     http://fivesibes.blogspot.com
We have a lot of huskies up here in Alaska and Siberians are my favorite!

Now for sharing some interesting things about myself...humm    I have listed many in the past, here are a few more.

1. I am a mama's boy and I won't get in any car without my mom. I won't even ride with dad.
2. I like to hump four of the five cats.
3. I am still afraid of the vacuum.
4. I want to attack anything with a long handle, such as a broom, rake, shovel, mop, etc.
5. Neither of my eyes are totally blue...more on that in another post.

OK, it's mom's turn.

1. I am a Pediatric Nurse now working as a roving school nurse. I love having the summers off to spend with my family.

2. I live with my Boyfriend of 15 years and my 90 year old mother. We have one dog, 5 cats and a 55 gallon fish tank in the living room full of Rainbow fish from Australia and New Guinea.

3. Ryker is my first dog in a very long time. We were finally in a position to get a dog and I researched it for months. We were really lucky to find a wonderful breeder and couldn't be more pleased with our choice.

4. Before Ryker I had so many hobbies! Cooking, Gardening (vegetables, flowers, bonsai, orchids), Painting,
Beading, Knitting (just learned), Needle Felting, Polymer Clay Creatures like elves, etc., Interior Decorating,
 But post Ryker I still cook and do some gardening but now I needed something more dog friendly so I bought us a camera!  I am still learning but have been pleased with the improvement of my photographs and am slowly learning more about my computer...of which I know very little! I love having a dog again!

5. I have always loved animals. I used to catch bubble bees in my hands and have never been stung. I am afraid of spiders but not much else. I always wanted to have a snake but my mom was afraid of them. We always had a dog as I was growing up. Never a cat as my dad disliked them. My parents had a Wired Haired Fox Terrier before I was born. We had other Fox terriers and poodles and Welsh Terriers when I was a teenager. I could not imagine living without a pet, what an empty life that would be.

So there you have it, I will now pass this Award along to someone deserving...not that you are not all deserving but alas, I will pick only one.

                   Ryker says I must now post more pictures of him and Carly playing in the snow!



  1. You are definitely deserving of this award! I am terribly afraid of spiders too. Yuck! Happy New Year!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS of your Award!!

    Awesome photos as usual. Two of my favorites would be the one with all the snow flying around each dog - Awesome action shot. And the very last photo of the two friends. The way they are looking at each other kinda says it all.
    Have a fun day.

  5. Congrats on your award! It is hard to imagine a life without dogs...we can't!
    Blogging has taught us a lot about cameras and the computer too. We have learned so many things that we can use in other applications, like work...haha!

  8. Congrats on your blog award!

    Fly is fed on Tinned wet food, two tins every day. She used to live on bread and dry meal, but her teeth are a little bad now so tinned it is.

  9. Congrats on your award, Ryker, you deserve it for sure! I thought it was funny that you will not go for car rides with your dad and will only ride with your mom! How does your dad feel about that? I loved that your mom researched all about you before adopting you because she was prepared for a sweet dog like you!

  10. Congratulations! I am not the least bit suprised you won this. Your blog is just beautiful. And with photos like these, I can't think of anyone more deserving!

  11. I found you through Shiva's site. After Kodee arrived we too got caught by the camera bug and the hiking bug. Your photos are stunning! YUP you just convinced me to get outside, it snowed today.

  12. Congrats on your award! Love those snow photos.

  13. You are most welcome! I LOVE your sixth up from the bottom photo - just great! I have a question for Ryker...why won't you hump the fifth cat???!!
    Great interesting facts!


Ryker is wiggling to hear your comments!
