Home is Wonderful!

Hello to all our Furry Friends! Thank you for all your well wishes. A lot of you know we came back home. We left to evacuate and the traffic was gridlocked, and there were no gas stations and no stopping allowed on the way. Mom and Dad agreed home was best, so we took the last available u-turn and headed home. Mom and Dad upacked the huskymobile and got us settled in. As you seek our beds got stacked up during the day as we were only allowed in three rooms (for safety reasons and keeping us cool). And I had to guard the dog cookies.
Missy had her favorite spot under the desk and Bella likes the kitchen floor. Of course our kitchen was not finished, but now that the storm is over and things are getting back to normal it is supposed to be finished this week! We can't wait.
Now that the storm is over and we have that electric stuff back on, mom can bake cookies. I was helping her unpack the Happy Hearts Dog Cookies container. She actually packed up her cookie cutters, measuring stuff and her special gift from Frankie, Maddie and Dominio. She made us cookies yesterday, as we were completely out and we deserved them because we such good pups during the storm.
Here's a short video of us looking out the window after the storm had kinda passed late that afternoon. The pool was so full of leaves and stuff, but dad cleaned it out the next day. It's not the best video, but mom tried.
We thank all of you. Checking up on us and keeping us in your thoughts and the SMS'ers that sent all those husky/mal vibes that got our electricity back on Thursday night. We were so happy to have the husky air back on. And believe us, husky/mal vibes really do work!
From Gerri: thank you everyone! We were very fortunate that all we lost was power and we had a small generator going that kept the frig on and a small portable room a/c that kept the pups cool. We were prepared to stay in the beginning and felt we made the right decision. The only motel we could find was in northern Arkansas and it would have taken us 2 day sto get there. So home was best. The only damage we had was a piece of siding/soffit of the side of the house by the gutter. We can fix that. The pups were very, very good. It's funny now, when it's get dark and starts to rain, they go to their crates now and wait for me to come sit by them like I did during the storm. The kitchen will be finished this week, and I can get back to baking dog cookies. Our capital, Baton Rouge was hit the hardest, so the department that issuses the license asked that I wait a week before I send in my application. Thank you again for your thoughts. It was the greatest feeling to know how much all of you cared!!!!
Husky Hugs to all. MayaMarie, Missy, Bella, Gerri and Steve

Great job pups! I think you took care of your parents perfectly fine. Obviously your mom is scared, so it really helps her if you sit in your crates near her. I'm glad she is safe and can continue making cookies.


PS. I think we have the same dog beds, just different fabric.

I am purring with joy to know that you all survived the nasty storm. Storms are BAD! I wish we could get your mum's cookies here. I could send over that chicken I had this week!

We are so glad you are fine and have the husky air back on. It must have been very very scary. We think it's great that your humans stayed with you by your crates during the storm.

We are so happy you made it through the storm safely! We don't know what we would have done without our HH cookies. BTW, my mom needs to talk to your mom about sending an order of cookies to Biloxi in his new home :-)
