One Day Left

Hey everypup (including honorary pups),

Just one more day of relaxation before I begin the Week of 100!

I'm making sure that I get a lot of napping in, and I've already filed my razor-like talons to be ready to write 100 blog posts in only 5 days. Should be an adventure.

If you'd like to pledge now and get it over with, just follow the instructions on the right. You can simply pledge, then pay when I'm done or pay now, whatever you want.

Everyone that pledges will be eligible for cool prizes throughout the week, and don't worry that you can't sit 24 hours a day for 5 days to get a cool prize, I'll be running contests where everyone has a chance to win.

All money goes to the non-profit Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed rescue (you pay them directly, no money comes to me, because I'll just spend it on livergreat, which would be very tasty, but not fair to the gimpies and needy potential new HULA members at the rescue).

So, get busy with the human's credit card and pledge some money, win some prizes, help some needy northern breeds, take a tax write off for the humans and get ready for 100 posts throughout the week.

Meeshka
(will she start at 12:01 Monday, or will she have to claw her human woman awake later to get access to the powerbook... you'll just have to wait and see)

P.S. Sorry about Gustav everyone... its Uncle Jack's fault

Tropical storm Fay... Uncle Jack is coming.

Don't say I didn't warn you, it only starts getting worse from here.

Week of Blogs update


Why am I blogging 100 posts during an entire week?

Here's one of the reasons. This is Dolce. He's a 9 month old Siberian Husky who got out of his yard and was hit by a car. Dolce suffered a severely broken pelvis and one of his legs popped out of his hip socket.

All of the other rescues were full or couldn't afford the cost of his surgery, but Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue has the funds and an open foster home to nurse him back to health.

Dolce underwent 7 hours of surgery on friday 15 August, that included his neuter, and is now recovery at the hospital. His foster home will pick him up in a few days when he has stabilized and nurse him back to health before he's able to find his fur-ever home.

This is why I'm blogging for a whole week, 100 posts total, for dogs like Dolce who shouldn't have to suffer like this, he should be in a happy, loving home, safe from cars and causing chaos for his humans. Dolce will get that chance once he's healed, and then there will be other dogs just like him. Help Harnessed to Hope so they can save the gimpies and find them safe and loving places to live.

Gee, if that doesn't guilt you into pledging, then eeesh!

Send your pledge amount to meeshkaworld@gmail.com and be eligible for winning prizes during the week and the after blog drawing for cool stuff, or click the donate button to the left to donate money right now and still be eligible for prizes and the drawings, and help a gimpy puppy heal and find love.

Vacation Shmacation

The human woman is a bit peeved at me. Apparently I didn't "clear" it with her about the week of 100 posts and she's freaking out. Something about "I'm on vacation, this is my week to relax and do things that I don't get to do when I'm working". Pfft, she just lays on her butt all week or goes out to eat, who is she kidding!

Like she's actually going to go out and plant flowers, they just die anyway.

Super Duper Announcement

Ok, so you know how I didn't blog on the usual blogathon day? Yeah, good thing as the human woman was sick and laying in bed and not giving me her kleenex.

Well, to make up for the lack of Meeshka blogathon, I'm announcing my new super duper fundraiser!!!!

So exciting, isn't it... stop yawning!!

Ok, so here's the deal,

1. all donations go to Harnessed To Hope Northern Breed Rescue (a non-profit, so donations are tax deductible and all that stuff).

2. there will be prizes throughout the fest for registered pledgers.

3. to pledge, simply e-mail me at: meeshkaworld@gmail.com with the amount you are pledging. After the event is over, then you will be honorable and send your donation to HTHNBR (paypal or check is fine).

4. I will keep a tally of the pledges on the blog (pledge lots of money please, the rescue may be getting a gimpy, more details pending)

And now... for the Meeshka World Blog Challenge:

Starting Monday 1 September 2008 until midnight Friday 5 September 2008, I will post 100 times. Yes, that's 20 blog entries a day, and I'm not talking stupid little "Hey, here's post #20!" crap, we're talking REAL posts, with cartoons, pictures and words of wisdom.

I may even reveal the secrets of the gimpy dogs, heck I may even let them post for a change, who knows, everything goes, and everything gets posted!

So, get your pledges in and win some prizes, and be ready to be entertained and dazzled during Meeshka World Blog Challenge.

Spread the word, send out stuff, let other pups know, pick your human's pockets and get some money for a really nice rescue!!!!

I COMMAND YOU!!!!

Name Confusion

I wanted to thank Zim’s humans for setting me straight that Zim was a HER, not a him. I’m talking about Zim of puppy olympics, not Zim of A04. Ok, that’s not too confusing, is it?

So, Zim is actually a female, but her full name is Mr. Hakizimana... ok, I’m going to need a nap after all of this confusion.

Since we now know that Mr. Zim is actually a Ms. Zim, I thought I’d share some other faux pas moments I’ve had:

Opy is a girl, and named after Oprah, not Opy of the Andy Griffith show.

Huffle is actually Stella and a girl, and a cat, but an honorary Husky and member of HULA.

There are many more and if I refer to you as a he and you are a she, or vice versa... get over it, I have a world to rule so I can’t be bothered with gender details anyway.

Speaking of pee, which I wasn’t, but that’s what the human woman was just on the phone about. On friday she stole my pee. She snuck up while I was finding the perfect spot and then shoved a plastic container between my legs and stole my pee.

I’m convinced she’s selling it on ebay or something, but she claims it went to my doctor for testing. Apparently my doctor and the human woman said that my pre-operative blood work came back with one wacky value and they wanted to rule out something called Cushings. Frankly I’m a bit upset that they keep up with the stupid weight jokes, I do NOT look like a cushion, I am big boned and very fluffy I am not overweight and yes Indy, I’m still not talking to your human woman for that Lane Bryant model comment! Oh, cushings... not cushions... nevermind.

Before you all freak out, your Queen is fine, my pee is normal (and goes well with some fava beans). So, yes I do pant and seek out cold places to lay, but I’M A FREAKING FLUFFY HUSKY IN GAWDAWFUL HOT MERRYLAND WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?????

Oh, sorry, I’ve been a bit tense lately as I now can’t pee without fearing that someone will steal it.

Meeshka
I’m fluffy, that’s hot

Uncle Jack Ghoul Pool


Yes everyhusky (dog, girl-girl, huffle, wilbur, tia, tervs... ok, this is getting ridiculous, from now on its just everyhusky and just assume I mean the various and sundry everybody), its almost time for Uncle Jack's annual visit.

For those of you who are new, I'll do a little recap:
Uncle Jack visits us the first week of September every year, and every year someone famous dies, and there's a horrible natural (or terrorist) disaster. Like clockwork he is, bad things happen when Uncle Jack comes to town.

Some of Uncle Jack's more famous visits:
September 11th (yes, THAT September 11th)
Hurricane Katrina
Steve Irwin (who saw that one coming?)

Just do a search on the blog for "Uncle Jack" and you can read all about the carnage.

As I've done for a few years now, its apparently time to start the ghoul pool to guess what famous person will kick the bucket when Uncle Jack is in town. Holly Bolly Boo asked me earlier if Uncle Jack had snuck into town early, as we've lost Bernie Mac AND Isaac Hayes all in one weekend. The only thing I can say about that is, no, Uncle Jack isn't here yet, and if those famous people are going now, it'll be a grand ghoul pool this year, with a pretty nice natural disaster too!

Ok, so get your guesses in now until Uncle Jack arrives 31 August. Remember, the moment he gets on the plane, every celebrity is fair game, no matter how healthy (remember Steve Irwin... and yes, Opy and Charlie I'M SORRY, I have no control over who it is).

Leave your guesses in the comment section and may the best pup win!

OH! Before I forget, Khyra bestowed the Kind Blogger award to all of the SMS crew. I'm quite honored to be a member of SMS and to receive such a wonderful award, but I have to hug my fluffiness at the irony that I'm asking for ghoul pool nominations in the same blog entry where I'm displaying a "Kind Blogger" award. Heeeee!

Yet Another Lousy Human Woman Idea

I really don't know what gets into the human woman's head sometimes. She sees these things on tv or finds them on the internet and thinks they're perfect and buys them. She could spend her money on us, buying us goodies and treats, and perhaps a bigger bed, but no, she buys these things "for us" like brushes and stupid heartworm pills (that claim to be tasty beef flavor, but I'm here to tell you that they taste as much like beef as a shoe).

Here is the latest "fantasy" thing for us:
Its a thing called a Peticure. Now at least its not the knock-off piece of crap they're advertising on the "as seen on tv" infomercials that go on and on about how wonderful their knock-off product is because its not as expensive as the real one, and only costs you $29.99 but if you call now it'll only cost you two payments of $15.00 (if you're too stupid to add that up...) and if you call now, they'll throw in the free "shed ender" a $30.00 value for free, you just have to pay shipping and handling (which amazingly enough adds up to $30.00) and then you sit for a year and your order never arrives so you call the company and they've gone out of business and are now selling Ped-eggs.

Its all the Mutatoe's fault because last night as he was hogging most of the bed, the Human Woman was massaging his back feet (the spoiled little suck up) and she noticed that his back nails are long enough to scale trees like those tree trimmer guys. She got out a nail file and started sawing away at them to no avail. It was then that I could see the lightbulb go off in her relatively dim head. If Loki sits still for a nail file, then why not spend gobs of money on a thing that will file them like a dremel, but has a guard on it to keep it from sucking up our sensitive foot hairs and causing pain and suffering... so she ordered one. Grand. I'll be sure to include pictures of the carnage when she tries using it on us.

I also wanted to add that she got a hair cut and she's all proud of it. Here it is:
Yes, its the exact same hair cut she gets all the time, but please, just humor her and tell her how wonderful and new it looks. If you don't, she may go out and squander our money on a new bag or something stupid "for us" like that automatic dog washer thing she saw on the Animal Planet Puppy Games last night.

I just wanted to mention that one of the puppies on that show was named ZIM!!!! I know a ZIM!!! Of course, the athlete Zim looked nothing like the Zim I know, but still, its pretty cool.

New HULA Member: Poppy


I don't know what it is really.
The resemblance to the spineless bionic hip puppy Sam's walk.
The snazzy outfits
The fact that Poppy manages to get her humans to carry, tote, push, and take her everywhere.
The human foods she's given to eat
The fact that her humans bend over backwards and cater to her every demand

This amount of subliminal manipulation and human behavior modification is so worthy of a HULA Hoop membership.

An added bonus is that its Poppy's 2 year blogaversary, so go wish Poppy a happy blogaversary and congratulate her on her induction into the HULA Hoop.

New HULA Member: Eva

Eva gets the HULA award for the following:

1.) putting up with Brice (I know how that is, dealing with foolishness and still being regal and fluffy)

2.) Owning a human man that actually does poo duty in his bare feet and doesn’t have the sense or balance to avoid stepping in poo in his bare feet.

For grace under pressure and for suffering the fools around you... please enjoy your HULA certificate.

New HULA Member:

He’s the centerfold for PlayDog magazine,
He’s adored by northern breeds from afar (and in Holly’s case awide),
He’s the bane to Eva’s existence,
He’s ripped out his neuter stitches twice without a whimper (well, his human’s credit card whimpered)

He’s destroyed:
  • 5 cords
  • at least 12 stuffies
  • 1 pink rubber doughnut chew toy
  • 2 soap dispensers
  • 1 can hair product
  • 3 slats from the mini-blinds
  • 8 plastic hangers
  • 3 collars
  • 2 strips of hardwood floor (not installed)
  • 1 hole in the middle of a rug
  • and 1 down comforter not broken but a casualty due to 1 poo on the guest bed (hehe, way to go)
He’s up for the Mutatoe cushy hoarder award for emptying the dirty clothes basket twice, and the Spineless Bionic Hip puppy ice cube dispenser all over the floor award once he masters the fridge dispenser ... yes... welcome to the HULA hoop


Brice!
