Million Paws Walk 2012

The Million Paws Walk was on again today. This was Logan’s third walk, and Tayla’s second.

We caught up with all the superstars of the Adelaide doggy scene 🙂 We met up with Amy from Advance Behavioural Training, bought some cool toys from Sam from Furberry, and got Logan a relaxing massage from Griselda from Doggy Bliss.

Lots of photos from the RSPCA Million Paws Walk 2012 can be found on the MyHusky Facebook page.

Favourite Things Competitions

On the 18th of September it will have been 2 years since Logan came home from the airport with us. Being a sentimental sort of chap, I figured that’s something we’ve gotta celebrate.

So I’ve put together a pack of some of Logan’s favourite things for somebody to win. The pack includes 1 plush bear, 1 Everlasting Treat Ball and 1 bag of yoghurt drops.

The bear

This is the first thing Logan picked up when he got home. He immediately started carrying it around and tried to find a hidey hole to plot the bear’s demise.

The bear actually lasted a surprisingly long time, but eventually met it’s end.

The ball

The Everlasting Ball kept Logan occupied for lengths at a time.

He first discovered it while doing Puppy Preschool at Angle Vale Vets 4 Pets, and we bought one for him straight away.

Logan has loved the ball ever since, and we’ve only had to replace it once (although that was probably Tayla’s fault).

The treats

Logan always had a preference for yoghurt. He use to get yoghurt mixed in with his meals, and loved the little yoghurt drops we got him from PetStock. We would play games and give him the choice of what treat to get, he always sniffed out and ate the yoghurt drops first.

How to win

So that’s what’s in Logan’s Favourite Things pack. To enter the competition leave a comment below listing what would be in your dog’s favourite things pack. I want to hear some cool stuff here folks 🙂

The winner will be drawn on Logan Day, September the 18th.

What’s in a name?

This morning I found the list that I made up when we were trying to come up with a name for Tayla. It got me wondering how people picked names for their dogs.

Logan had his name long before we even found him. I’ve always been an X-Men fan, so as soon as we decided that we were going to get a Husky I decided that I wanted to call him Logan.

On a side note, Logan’s original name was Hurley. We didn’t find this out until after we had been calling him Logan for a while. (It’s a shame really, Hurley would have been a cool name for Logan)

For Tayla it was a little harder. We wrote a long list of names, and then went through and crossed them off one by one.

Warning: This list may reveal some geeky tendencies that would likely be better off hidden.

Husky Destruction

Subtitle: What the Huskies Did Today

As Cyclone Yasi bears down on Queensland tonight, we had our own little cyclone in our lounge room. It has been rather unbearably hot of late, and as such we have let Logan and Tayla stay inside while we’ve been at work during the day. They managed this without incident for two days, but today it seems they got a tad bored.

Ripped up couch cushions, chewed up plastic and plant leaves.

And it didn’t stop there…

Oooohhh, there it is. Clearly the Huskies thought this was a better place for a miniature zen garden.

So that’s what Logan and Tayla did today. Clearly that is the end of the ‘staying inside’ experiment. Luckily the heat has died down for now.

The Husky ability for random destruction has always been well known, but up till now we had yet to see it at these extremes. Obviously we can’t tell them off for it, can’t show any anger towards them, both because they didn’t know any better and because we don’t know when they did it. If they did it when we first left this morning then scolding them 8 hours later isn’t going to accomplish anything.

Obviously our thoughts are with the people of Queensland tonight, but please someone think of us too.

Merry Christmas Ya’ll

We had a grand evening at The Woofery’s Christmas night last weekend. Lots of other dogs were there, free taste testing of the treats for the pups, and Santa even showed up to hand out some toys and treats.

Given that Tayla goes absolutely crazy for food, and that the treats would be flowing freely for the evening, we decided to just take Logan with us. Tayla would be…less than graceful.

Of course we couldn’t resist leaving before spending a lot of money on Christmas treats. We got some Santa and Snowman biscuits, some stars for Tayla and an Awesome Christmas tree made of up biscuits.

I’ve got a few weeks off over Christmas that I shall be spending at home with the Huskies. Drew shall be working so I think I’ll be Husky wrangling alone for a while 😛

Tayla and Logan also have a Secret Santa present coming from America from an unknown It’s a Husky Thing Member. It’s the first time I’ve been involved in a Secret Santa for dogs 😛
