Feathers & Toilet Paper Tubes

My Human added a bunch of new photos to her Flickr account over the weekend. I thought I'd feature a couple.

This picture is of me running through feathers in our old living room. When my Human talks about this picture she says that its of the day she discovered that she used to have a feather pillow. When she came home from work that day she was greeted by a lot of feathers. I'm not pointing any paws at who did this, but I'll say that it wasn't me. I was in my box the whole time.

One of my favorite things is the center tube of toilet paper. I love it when my Human gives it too me to destroy, but that stupid Roo Roo likes to trick me out of them. Here's a picture of me enjoying one.:

Meeshka's Blogathon

In honor of today's Blogathon that Meeshka is participating in, this will be my only blog entry. I have to devote all my time to reading her blog and posting comments as necessary. I hope everyone else is doing the same, not to mention donating money for this worthwhile venture.

Seizures are Stupid!

As I mentioned previously, I have seizures occasionally. I had another stupid seizure last night. It interrupted my schedule of yelling at Lex that he was stupid. My seizures only last about 5 minutes, and I'm never completely under their spell when they happen. I hadn't had one for 4 months, so fortunately I don't have them very often.

While I was having my seizure, Roo Roo decided that it was a good time to destroy the instruction book to my Human's new cell phone.

Project Dogway

So there were dogs on that TV show Project Runway last night. But none of them were Siberian huskies. I think it would have been great to have some huskies on the runway modeling fashions. And it would have been even greater to see the designers try to put clothing on a bunch of huskies.

My Human has never tried to put clothing on me!

Lack of Electricity is Stupid

My Human's friend Large Oh sometimes posts on my blog. Yes, she's stupid and she spends far too much time trying to irritate me and for some reason Woof Woof. She also spends a lot of time talking about her cat. Her parents live in St. Louis, MO and they have been without electricity for almost a week!

Some big stupid storms blew through that town about a week ago and did all sorts of damage and knocked power out for most people in that area.

What I don't understand is why humans keep getting surprised by nature. Just stupid, I guess. I'm sure that prior to this storm the humans in charge of these things felt that they had a pretty good emergency preparedness plan. Guess they were wrong.

We heard on our local news that our local authorities said that we would not have the same problems than St Louis did if a big storm blows in. For some reason I don't believe them.

Vacation Starts Today

My Human's vacation starts today! I'm not sure what all we're going to do, but I do know that today she is going to go to the groomer and then Niki gets to go see Dr. Debbie.

Yesterday my Human brushed me for a while and then fed that stupid D. Animal. Vacuums sure survive on a weird diet!

Speaking of food, I did manage to grab some of my Human's breakfast today. She dropped a sausage ball on the floor. My Human foolishly thought that she could reclaim it, but I was too fast for her! It was too hot 'cause it had come right out of the oven, but I ate it anyway. I figured it was either me or somedog else. Might as well be me!!!

Sleeping + Walking

My Human occasional will get up and do things while she's [at least mostly] asleep. Once she got up and let all of us outside (except Lex who stayed inside) in the middle of the night, and then she went back to sleep. Pup, was she surprised when she woke up to see is outside looking in at her!
On another occasion, my Human got up during the night, walked across the room and turned the radio not only on, but to a different station than it had been set to.

Last night she sleep-turned-the-air-conditioning-on. Since Friday, our temperatures have been quite nice. Our low last night was around 60, so we didn't need the air conditioning to run. Now, I don't mind it being cooler, but my Human sure was surprised to see it on and the windows open this morning! The unit is high enough that she knew we couldn't reach it, so we weren't to blame.

Husky Logo #18

It's a Husky! It's a Mountain! No, it's the logo for the Husky Group!!!! From what I gather the Husky Group is an investment services business. But most of the google information pointed to the site of a company called the Logo Factory.

Anyway...it's a very cool logo!

Friday, July 21, 2006


That Meepie is always interfering! When I am trying to yell at Lex, Meeps will stand between us. He also blocks my Human's path a lot of the time. Meepie is not a small guy at all, and he is very muscular. So when he wants to throw an obstacle in somedog/somehuman's path, it's very formidable.

In other news, the temperature is forecasted to not be so hot today... We'll see...

Television is Stupid

Do your humans watch that stupid television thing? Mine sure does. There are a few shows that she watches a lot: House, Good Eats, Judge Judy, Project Runway, and Cops. Of those, only Cops is smart enough to actually have dogs on it. (Regarding Project Runway, my Human is saddened that Malan was auf'd. She feels that some potential good snark was removed from her life.)

I don't watch much tv. It doesn't interest me much. However, my Human gave me my nickname of Tubey because of the mascot of Television Without Pity.

When my Human goes to her stupid job she will leave the radio on for us. We never get to choose the station, though.

Today the stupid tv said that it's going to be a high of over 100 degrees! But tomorrow it's supposed to be a high of 85. And the stupid tv said that we're supposed get some storms tomorrow. Can't it just change temperatures without those stupid storms!!!!????

CSI: Turbo

We have a mystery on our paws! Someone chewed through my show lead yesterday. Sure, I don't need it because I'm not a show dog, but THAT'S BESIDE THE POINT! Before my Human went to her job yesterday, I was escorted to my box to spend a few hours. When she returned at lunch time, my lead was in tatters. I couldn't see who had destroyed my property. I know that I didn't do it, so now I have to deduce who it was. Everyone is a suspect at this time.

D. Animal: I don't think that the stupid vacuum did it for a couple reasons. 1) It was in the same room as me and never left, & 2) It's more into scheming and cleaning up all traces of evidence than destruction.

My Human: She seemed surprised that it was chewed up when she got home. Might have been an act, but I don't think she did it. Her teeth are rather dull.

Lex: He is always stupid and therefore always a suspect. But he's been spending a lot of time in my Human's bedroom moping. The lead was in the livingroom. I hate to admit it, but I don't think he did it.

Aurora: I am eliminating her from the pool of suspects. She was in her box next to me at the time of the crime.

Niki: It's possible, but I've never seen her destroy anything. She loses interest before something is completely trashed.

That leaves us with 2 prime suspects. Both of whom have been known to destroy items.

Misha: He has a history of wanton destruction. He has been seen happily destroying books, toys, and many, many other things.

Fargo: The key evidence that I have against him is that a few months ago he ate a small leather leash. When my Human came home from work that day, she discovered that only the buckle remained. She knew it was Fargo when the very next day this same leash came out of Fargo in several small pieces.

I don't have enough evidence at this time for a search warrant, but I am pretty sure it was Fargo who did it. I'll be keeping my eyes and ears open.

Heads Down

It's been too hot to do anything except for doing nothing at all. My Human is happy that the weather is supposed to be cooler next week for her vacation time.

We have some stupid ants that have been coming into the house looking for food. They're too small, so I'm not really that interested in them.

Almost 100

Today it's supposed to be close to 100. That's really, really stupid. I agree with Meeshka, where's the snow?

My Human starts her vacation this upcoming Saturday. She doesn't plan on taking any trips or anything stupid like that. But she is going to take Roo Roo & me to see Dr. Debbie. Niki's going to get groomed. So's my Human for that matter. My Human is also going to go to a class to learn how to make sushi. She loves sushi, but she never shares, so hopeful she'll learn to do that.

I was browsing through the Siberian Husky group on Flickr. These photos stood out to me this morning.

It's Spreading!!!

Not only does that stupid D. Animal (who lives with us) have a blog, but that stupid Vrooomy who lives with Charlie the Big Dog has one, too!

They're trying to suck up our territory!

Husky Logo #17

I found this cool logo this morning. But when I went to the website, there was a 404 error message.

So anyway, here is an angry husky logo:

My Human has a degree in linguistics & English. So she gets curious about stupid words. She made her stupid friend, Large Oh, research the meaning of the word "pussyfoot." Large Oh has a lot of free time currently because she no longer works at the circus.


Teddy Roosevelt seems to have either coined or popularized pussyfoot in about 1905. Meaning crafty, cunning, or moving in a cautious manner, it refers to the way cats can walk stealthily by drawing in their claws and walking on the pads of their feet. It's very unlikely that the redoubtable William Eugene "Pussy-foot" Johnson, a crusading American do-gooder, has anything to do with the expression. Johnson was nicknamed "Pussyfoot" because "of his catlike policies in pursuing lawbreakers" when he served as chief special officer in the Indian Territory. Later his nickname, in the form of pussyfooters, was applied to all advocates of Prohibition., While crusading in England, fresh from his triumph of securing the passing of Prohibition in the U.S., Johnson was blinded by a stone thrown by a crusading drunk.

It's Friday!

My Human's stupid early morning schedule ends soon. Her co-worker returns from work on Monday. Also, on Monday her new manager will be starting. I still think that jobs and bosses are stupid!

Meepie always is trying to boss me around! I guess you know by now that I think he's stupid! Last night I was just minding my own business and Meepie charged across the room to clobber me. I was surprised, but I was able to pull some of his fluff out. Then I hopped up on the side table so that I was taller than everyone else.

I have always enjoyed climbing on top of things.

Stupid Noisy Thing!

That stupid thing that makes a lot of noise in the morning and wakes us up yelled for an hour and 7 minutes before my Human made it shut up! We've gotten pretty good at ignoring it, but still!!!! It was Fargo who finally woke my Human up by poking her!

And then my Human didn't take the time to play with us and let us watch that stupid TV before she left for her stupid job!

I could have woken her up sooner to make that stupid thing shut up, but I was in my box. All because of that stupid Lex, of course!!

More Storms

It stormed again last night. A lot. And it was loud! It's supposed to be hot today and for the next several days.

My Human used to live in Athens, Georgia. She said that in the summer everyday the forecast was the same:

SATURDAY: High in the mid to upper 90's with a 80% chance of afternoon thunderstorms
SUNDAY: High in the mid to upper 90's with a 80% chance of afternoon thunderstorms
MONDAY: High in the mid to upper 90's with a 80% chance of afternoon thunderstorms
TUESDAY: High in the mid to upper 90's with a 80% chance of afternoon thunderstorms
WEDNESDAY: High in the mid to upper 90's with a 80% chance of afternoon thunderstorms
THURSDAY: High in the mid to upper 90's with a 80% chance of afternoon thunderstorms
FRIDAY: High in the mid to upper 90's with a 80% chance of afternoon thunderstorms

I hate storms and I hate hot weather.

Tubey Is Influential

I don't care what that stupid Lex says...I am important! I am influential. Charlie the Big Dog sent me this photo that shows my name as the verification word on Blogger. Of course it was totally random and not at all manipulated. It proves that Blogger loves the Tube Wolf!

Also, as further proof of my influence. All my house mates (with the exception of the stupid Gecko) now have blogs of their own. You can find their links at the bottom of my "Dog Blog" links. Yeah, technically my Human and that stupid Dyson Animal are not dogs, but I kept them there for consistency sake.

Brave Roo Roo

A beetle was trying to take Aurora on.

But Aurora kept her eye on it.

Bye-Bye, Mr. Lay

As you may recall, Kenneth Lay gave my Human's alma mater a lot of money to endow a chair (in his name) in economics. The University has had trouble getting someone to sit in the chair.

Mr. Lay is now among the former pie eaters of the world. I thought I'd post his obituary that was in the local newspaper. It's over the top.

Human Language Is Still Stupid

Humans sometimes eat things such as pancakes, French toast, and waffles. Sometimes they pour syrup on their food. Sometimes that syrup is fake maple flavored. Sometimes the syrup is called "butter flavored." You'd think that the syrup would taste like butter because of the name, but no. It still tastes like fake maple syrup.

And sometimes humans go to a building and watch movies on a screen on the wall. They sometimes get popcorn to munch on. And sometimes that popcorn has a gooey liquid poured onto it that is "butter flavoring." It does not taste like fake maple syrup. It's taste is reminiscent of butter.

So, my words of advice today is to beware of liquidy "butter flavor." It could be fake maple syrup or fake butter.

Some Siberian Huskies have formed a Butter Club. They even have a constitution. They know the difference!

At It Again!


Stupid Lex did his stupid hacking again!!! He defaced my photo! Fortunately the good dogs behind Dogs With Blogs were able to secure the site and clear up Lex's mess.

See what happens when I have to be in the crate!

Husky Logo #16

I don't remember talking about the University of Washington Husky logo yet. I found a website that has a competition to choose the favored husky logo.

The University started out with the mascot of the Sun Dodgers. They called their mascot "Sunny Boy!" But in 1923 they realized that they were really stupid to have that and they wised up and got the Husky.

I think that the logo below was the winner. And I think I like it best.

I like the next logo the least (It's just a stupid "W"):

I think this logo from 1937 looks like what the child would look like if a Sibe and a cat had a baby!

(Ssshhh!!! I still think the Northeastern University Husky is the best mascot!)

Abita Turbodog

My Human found a beer a few years ago called Turbodog. It's made in Louisiana by the Abita company. After she found it, she bought a Turbodog hat and t-shirt.

I'm definitely in favor of products named after me.

Turbo Poll

Less Squitos

I'd like to make a motion that instead of more squitos we have less squitos. Hear me out. What do they do? Suck blood, fly around, procreate, carry diseases, and buzz. I don't think that we need to have any of those things.

We have wetlands around our house and the mosquitos like them. I've noticed this year that we have larger black mosquitos than we've seen around here before. So far I've not noticed that they've injected any of us.

My Human used to live in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. She learned on her first day there that you really shouldn't go walking down by the river without bug repellent in the evening time.

I don't know how he did it, but Lex hacked into my blog! Sure, I could have deleted it, but I decided not to 'cause I wanted you to see just how stupid he is!

I went ahead and changed my password. He's not as sneaky as he thinks he is!

I'm Lex is the Best!

So Turbo's I've been stupid! Lex is the best dog in the world...definitely a lot better than me, the stupid Tube-Tube. So everything that I've written about him is totally wrong. I just wanted all my readers to know that I've been really stupid. Yeah, that's right TURBO IS I AM THE STUPID DOG, NOT LEX.

From now on Turbo's I'm gonna give him all my treats and not be selfish.

Independence Day (Fourth of July)

Fireworks are stupid!!! And they are loud!!! We live out in the country. If we were in the city, fireworks would not be legal for private citizen to explode. But out here, they're considered a mighty-fine thing. Out here the humans think that it's fun to blow stuff up real good. (My Human wants you to know 2 things: 1) she took that photo above on the right several years ago at a big fireworks show in our town and 2) she's not planning on blowing anything up.)

And speaking of stupid, I've noticed that it always thunderstorms around the 4th of July! Both lightning & thunder are stupid! I have this theory that the smoke from the fireworks and the bbq's feeds the clouds and that causes the storms. It stormed all last night.

My Human does not have to go to that stupid job she has today. I think I heard her say something about giving all of us (except Niki) baths. Niki is excluded because of her tendency to sink her teeth into my Human's hand.

New Template

I've revised my World of Turbo blog look. I got the template from the Eris Free site. I decided that my blog needed a new look to go with my new logo.


Cartoons and stupid tv shows sometimes show dogs bringing the newspaper in for their humans. My Human is allergic to newsprint, so we don't have the paper delivered. But if we did, you could be that none of us would be helping with this chore.

My Human once had a landlady who was quite fond of German Shepherds. She got them to bring the paper in for her. One dog in particular proudly marched down the driveway and picked up the paper. But instead of bringing the paper back to his human, he passed her by and shred the newspaper as he should have.

I salute this particular German Shepherd. He seems worthy of an honorary membership into the Siberian Husky Society.

Adult Human Treat

I found this recipe while I was googling husky "mind meld:"

Siberian Husky

1 oz. Chambord Raspberry Liqueur
1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Cream
3 Scoops Ice Cream

Mixing instructions:
Put ice cream in blender first, pouring liquids over top. Blend to the consistency of milk shake. Serve in large rocks, 12 oz. Top with a cherry.

Glass Type: Shot Glass

Sneaky Roo Roo

Aurora is a sneaky little girl. She likes tricking us into giving up something that we want. Example, I love the center tube of a roll of toilet paper. My Human usually gives it to me to destroy. But Roo Roo will stare at me and make me so agitated that I charge her. She'll then calmly take the tube and run off with it.

Roo Roo really thinks her cuteness is so irresistible to others that she can apply husky mind control whenever and wherever she decides too. A good example of this was when my Human's friend Large Oh was visiting last year for my Human's birthday. Large Oh had made a birthday cake. It was a white cake with cherry filling and chocolate chips. After the cake was finish, Large Oh and my Human were eating it in the living room. Roo Roo climbed up on Large Oh's lap and lay upside down to encourage belly rubs. Roo Roo was hoping that she was so adorable that Large Oh would set down her cake. Large Oh did find Roo Roo awful cute, but she liked her cake more. So, she stretched her arm out so that the cake was out of Roo Roo's reach. Roo Roo kept stretching her body and Large Oh kept stretching her arm. Ultimately, Large Oh won the battle and Roo Roo didn't get any cake.

Happy Tubey Month!

Don't forget that Tubey Month starts today!

Husky Logo #15

My Human sometimes buys the Husky brand of trash bags. She gets them at the Home Depot. Again, what's with these companies that don't have a picture of a husky in their logo?!
