Kodiak here. Notice the sun is shining. Well, the sun is shining in this picture. But the weatherman is promising that the clouds will burn off this morning and the rest of today and tomorrow will be gorgeous. So I have my leash on and am ready to go. Shut down the computer. Back away. Start the Jeep. Let’s go.
Qannik here. Hole, what hole? I don’t know anything about a hole. Did you see all of the dirt that Natasha threw onto my face? You see, if you will leave the computer alone and take us out hiking all day, she will calm down and not get into trouble. You know, A Tired Sibe is a Good Sibe.
Kiska here. I even already have my seat belt on. But here is what I think about working on the computer when it will be a pretty day today. Pffffffffffffffft. Enough said? Let’s go.
Hu-dad here. Ok, ok, ok. Blog maintenance is postponed. We had a little tiny crash Thursday night (little tiny being defined as the administrative panel disappeared for about 2 hours meaning I could not access the blog to make changes), and then that “busyness” thing got in the way. So nothing more will happen for several days until I get some time. Thought I would share a few comments though before taking off –
Huffle (whose real name is Stella, not to be confused with Stella) – ” “. – Yep. Apparently, Huffle found out I turned on the “cat scan” which prevents cats from making comments. Well, no, not really. I upgraded WP Spamfree which blocked comments from behind proxies – a common technique among spammers, but, unfortunately, also some users. Successfully fixed. Fortunately, Huff used the contact us box so we found out about the problem. Betting others had the problem too.
Bricey the Ever Astute – “You did change the font.” – Yep, but that really was not what I was going for. Part of the challenge that I have is that I tinkered with the template that I use. Thus, everytime that I upgrade the wordpress software, those changes are lost and have to be rebuilt. So you are actually seeing the “official” font of that template. I thought the new template would be working by now, so never changed the font back. Oh well.
But no one commented that the header picture has changed. Well, the picture is the same, but the the website title and the dogs names are now on the picture itself. Makes for a faster load.
The Op Pack – “Knowing how knowledgeable your huDad is about computers, you are convincing us more and more to leave ours alone.” – We have tears running down our face from all of the laughter at that one here in the house. Our hu-dad has actually had 2 whole classes in computers in his entire life, and both of those were in college many, many, many moons ago. BASIC and COBOL. Yes, COBOL, because some professor convinced him that was the computer language for business. Boy, has that really been useful. And the IT department at dad’s work would really find that comment funny.
We will leave the final comment to our buddy, Ozzie – “I am in fear for woo all. Good luck on the up(down)grades.” – Enough said.
P.S. – Ozzie, we still think the new puppy should be called Harriet, because then your humans would have “Ozzie and Harriet.”

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
