3 New Teams Added!

I am pleased to report that I have added 3 new teams to the Husky Football League: The St. Cloud State, the St. Mary's, and the East Los Angeles. They are each good teams, with a combined season record of 24 wins & 9 non-wins. Go Huskies!!!!

This week, only 2 teams had games. The Northern Illinoises beat some robertcats. Sadly, the Connecticuts lost to some stupid bearcats. (Are they bears? Are they cats? I don't know. BTW, my Human often calls me "pigbear." I think that's a better nickname than "bearcat.")

In conclusion, here is a picture of me destroying a toilet paper tube:

3 Games & 3 Wins

I got overly excited and posted this before I wrote any words. This season is dwindling down and just 3 teams had games this week. But each team won, so that made me happy. The Northern Illinoises beat some eagles. The Washingtons beat some cougars. And the Connecticuts beat some scarlet knights. I do need to make a correction. At some point during the season, I goofed up and miss counted the number of wins that the Washingtons had. I missed 1 victory in my standings board. I regret this error.

In conclusion, here's a classic picture of me:

Nutrition Revised

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all people who celebrate Thanksgiving Day. And for those who don't, Happy Day! Either way, celebrate today by eating something special.

A long time ago, I posted my food pyramid with my suggestions of the size of servings everyone should eat:

The U.S. government revised their pyramid to be shaped like a plate. So, I decided that I needed to update mine to be a plate also: You will notice that I'm now advising that everyone should eat an equal portion of bacon and froot. I've updated it that we should eat slightly less cheese. But we now should all eat a good amount of burritos. Under the Miscellaneous category, I've included whip, Nilla wafers, banana chips, Cheez-Its, salsa, & peanuts. (Marigold the Goat Philosopher recommended peanuts.)

In closing, here's a picture of me:

2 Weeks in 1

Thanks everyone for your kind words about my friend Fargo. I (and everyone else in our pack) appreciate it. We all miss him, but we are doing okay.

I didn't update the Husky Football League last weekend, so I'm doing that first before talking about this week. The Turbo-Colored Huskies of Bloomsburg are back on track and defeated some eagles without hair. The Northern Illinoises beat another type of bird - falcons. The Michigan Techs beat some wildcats. Unfortunately, the Washingtons did not score more points than some citizens of Troy. (The Connecticuts did not play, and the Saskatchewans have played their final game.) And I was disappointed that the Bloomsburg Turbo-Colored Huskies are not in the playoffs. Therefore, their season has come to an end.

Okay. I will update this week's standings after this important message: I was thinking about the football helmets of the teams of the Husky Football League. Here's what they look like: I don't understand why the Washingtons and the Connecticuts don't have a graphic of a husky on their helmets.

Now back to the sports report. This week only 3 teams had games, and only 33% of the teams won. The Northern Illinoises beat some stupid cardinals. The Washingtons did not score more points than some beavers. And the Connecticuts did not beat some stupid (different) cardinals.

Death is Stupid: Fargo

My best dog friend Fargo has left us for the Rainbow Bridge. I was very young when I came to live at the house, but Fargo always took the time to teach me things:

I very rarely called Fargo stupid. He was always a good friend.

Fargo would always let me lick his face when I was upset about something:

We'll miss you!

50 50

It's dreary and stupid outside today. I guess that is a good weather metaphor for a week that 50% of the husky league members won and 50% did not win: The Northern Illinoises beat some rockets, The Michigan Techs scored more points than some bulldogs (sorry dogs!), and the Connecticuts defeated the color orange. I was sad that the Bloomsburg Turbo-Colored Huskies did not score more points to some golden bears. Also the Washingtons did not win against some ducks and the Saskatchewans ended their season with a non-win against some thunderbirds. (I hate thunder!) In closing, here's me:

67 Is A Lot Of Points!

Ha rooo! We'll start with a picture of me:

Now, on with the football league news! The Washingtons beat some wildcats and the Saskatchewans prevailed against some golden bears. About those Saskatchewans, they scored 67 points against the golden bears' 3 points! That's what I'd call a decisive victory!

I have some sad news: The Bloomsburg Turbo-Colored Huskies did not win against some pioneers. The Michigan Techs did not defeat some lakers and the Connecticuts did not beat some panthers.

The Northern Illinoises will be taking on some rockets on Tuesday night.

Late Games This Week & Claudette

A couple of the games were played later yesterday, so I decided to dig some holes and nap. I knew I could post about them this morning.

Overall, it was a great weekend with the Turbo-Colored Huskies of Bloomsburg defeating some golden rams, the Michigan Techs won against some timberwolves, the Northern Illinoises beat some bulls, and the Saskatchewans were victorious over some non-golden rams. (The Connecticuts had the weekend off to nap.)

The Washingtons had their 2nd non-win against the color of cardinal (not the bird).

I feel the need to add that Turbo-Colored Huskies of Bloomsburg had a particularly thrilling victory. They didn't score any points in the 1st quarter. A couple of minutes into the 2nd quarter, the golden rams were up 35 points to 0. But at that point the Bloomsburgs started scoring lots of points. The final score was 55 Bloomsburg points to 42 golden rams points.

I want to step away from the sports page to pay tribute to a Dogs With Blogs family member who has left our world to join our friends across the rainbow bridge. Claudette Hudson had been a long time member of DWB at Lacy Lulu & Rocky's human. I doubt anydog or anyhuman has ever met a kinder being than Claudette. Although all of us who got to know Claudette are sad that she is no longer with us, we know that she is having a great time with all our friends who are playing on the other side of the rainbow bridge.

4 Wins & 2 Non-Wins!

So Huskies again won more games than they didn't win. I'd call that a good weekend. Of course I remain pleased that the Turbo-Colored Huskies of Bloomsburg remain undefeated. The Washingtons, Northern Illinoises, & Connecticuts also were winner. (These winning Huskies beat raiders, buffalos, broncos, & bulls). I'm sad to report that the Michigan Techs and Saskatchewans were non-winners to some chargers & dinosaurs (that remain unextinct).

Speaking of the Bloomsburg Turbo-Color Huskies, I've noticed something that perplexes me. When a human dresses up as the Bloomsburg mascot Roongo, he is not at all Turbo-Colored! This is a human in a Roongo costume:

This is me:

See the difference? Here's what the mascot does look like!

2 - 2 - 2

So! 2 HFL teams won, 2 didn't win, and 2 didn't play.

The Bloomsburg Turbo-Colored Huskies beat up some wolves (sorry wolves!) and the Northern Illinoises destroyed some golden flashes. I still agree with a statement I made back in 2007 that "Golden Flash" sounds like the name of a superhero that runs and pees!

Unfortunately, the Michigan Techs got a non-win against some stupid cardinals! And the Connecticuts did not score more points than some mountain ears.

Both the Washingtons & the Saskatchewans decided to nap today rather than play.

Here's a picture of me settling in for a supporting nap:

Ha roo, Sports Fans!

So the 5th week of the Husky Football League season occured this week. I'm happy to report that huskies defeated 67% of their opponents this week. The victorious huskies were the undefeated Turbo-Colored Huskies of Bloomsburg, Michigan Tech, Washington, & Saskatchewan. These huskies ruined the weekend of warriors, panthers, (sorry Huffle), utes, & thunderbirds. The Northern Illinoises & Connecticuts both lost sadly to chippewas & broncos. But they both came didn't lose by much - only 7 points a piece.

Here's the scoreboard for this weekend's games:

In conclusion, here's a picture of me today. I was victorious over a chopped up rawhide stick:

HFL Week 4

Haroo everywoo! I am overjoyed that my darling niece, Khady, is doing so much better! Keep up the good woo, KhL! I am also thrilled to report that this week in the Husky Football Leagues season is much more victorious than last week! The Bloomsburg Turbo-Colored Huskies remain undefeated after doing away with some marauders. I'm not really sure what a marauder is. I think that Bea Arthur had a TV series in the 1970's called Marauder or something. I don't know for sure as I wasn't born until a long, long time later.

So, Michigan Tech, Washington, Northern Illinois, & Connecticut all defeated their opponents, which were respectively some greyhounds, golden bears, mustangs, & bulls.

Sadly, the U of Saskatchewan lost their second in a row; this one to some dinosaurs. Go back to being extinct stupid dinos! You'd think Jake would have been able to gnaw on their bones.

To answer Huffle Mawson's question, there are many North American schools that have panthers as mascots. In fact, it's the 3rd most common mascot. In conclusion, here's an old picture of me so that you don't feel neglected:

Husky Football League 2011: Week 3

So I decided that what the world needs now is not "love sweet love." Instead what is needed is me to report on the weekly results of the Husky Football League. I did not cover the league last year and it has caused the world to be on the verge of economic collapse. I'm doing my part to right this wrong.

There's some really good news this season! The Northeastern University football team will not be losing any games this season! Now, back in 2009 there final record was 3 wins and 8 losses. Apparently these wise Huskies decided to stop losing games in 2010 and will continue to not lose games this season. In non-related news, they are no longer fielding a football team.

In other good news, the Bloomsburg Turbo-Colored Huskies are leading the league! This week they beat a bunch of Crimson Hawks. I bet those hawks were even more crimson after the Turbo-Colored Huskies got done with them, too.

But, sadly, that is where the good news ends this week. Michigan Tech lost to some warriors, Saskatchewan trampled by some bisons (and one of my Human's old schools at that!), Washington shucked by some ears of corn, Northern Illinois were badgered by badgers, and Connecticut were blown away by some twirly winds.

In closing, here's a picture of the gigantic husky of the University of Saskatchewan:

Don't be scared, though. Jake is inflatable:

The Answer

Queen Meeshka had her human woman draw the obvious answer to what happened to the message that Princess, the alledged Mark Trail "husky" was given:

Don't Know If This Is A Husky

I don't know if the "dog" in this Mark Trail cartoon is supposed to be a husky. I suspect so because the man is dressed like a Mounty, so the most stereotypical dog he could have would be a husky. (Mounties, of course, always dress like this.)

Let's assume this is a husky. Then my question for you is what do you think the husky will do with the message her human gave her?

International Bacon Day!

woo! I just found out that today is International Bacon Day in the United States. Therefore, I proclaim bacon and cheese for all!

Sunday, July 10, 2011

So, Anyway...

There had been a squeak toy buried outside of our house by a tall tree. We knew it because if we stepped on the ground, it would squeak! The Meep dug it up and my Human brought it inside and cleaned it. I knew where it was:

My Human thought I'd forget about it, but I didn't!

Rooie cared more about this big, stupid bird that was outside:

Eventually, my Human wised up and gave it to me:

I didn't let Rooie take it away from me!

The toy turned out to be filled with a very crumbly foam stuffing. Once my Human saw that, she took it away and didn't even get a picture!

A Pre-Memorial Day Tradition: Timing Belt or Siberian Husky?

Once again I am posting a "re-run" edition of the World of Turbo. This entry is a repeat of one that I posted 3 years ago and a year before that.

On Sunday of Memorial Day weekend in 1999, my Human was driving her car around noon and the timing belt broke.

On Saturday of Memorial Day weekend in 2000, my Human decided that Lex needed a friend. She went to the local animal shelter. She originally thought that she wanted to get a female, but none of them appealed to her. She then saw a dog labeled "Cochise." She liked him a lot, so she adopted him. Cochise became Misha Meep. (Below is Meepie's first photo after he came home.)

One year later on Memorial Day weekend 2001, my Human went to the local Farmer's Market and the animal shelter had an information booth. The woman who had handled Meep's adoption was working. My Human thanked her for helping out with Meepie. The woman said that the shelter had a red husky that they were calling Blaze. My Human decided to go over to "look" at the husky and to get information to help find him a home. She visited several times. No one was adopting Blaze, so my Human decided that if he was still there on Wednesday, she would adopt him. He was still there, so on Friday Fargo North Dogkota became a member of the family. (Below is the first photo of Fargo.)

My Human did not get a new Husky during Memorial Day weekend 2002. But that Sunday afternoon around noon her timing belt broke. This was especially stupid because her car had a rebuilt engine put in on the previous Thursday, but the mechanics put the used timing belt on her engine.

Since then my Human has not had to replace any timing belts and she has not added any Huskies during Memorial Day weekend. Now she tries not to drive anywhere at noon on the Sunday before Memorial Day.
