Furst off, before I let Mom do her musikh thing, I need to be serious and ask woo all to visit T-man's blog . I don't think I had ever visited his blog BUT I saw the sad news on Joe "Sweat" Stains blog this morning. BTW, if woo happen to visit Joe's blog later, be sure to wish his brother Doofus a HAPPY Gotcha Day!
Now, I'll let Mom get her fingers out and start filling your heads with tunes:
Khyra's Mom here now...khan't ya tell?
So, we are up to the "M's" - the letter that "m"usikh starts with!
The furst one was suggested by a certain Sibe Mama in OP Kansas - and I'm sure it is something she does since she has family members there - please chekhk out the M a m a s and P a p a s .
The next one was suggested by another mama - she's akhtually royalty since she's mom to a Princess AND Handsome Prince. I was already going to inkhlude Melissa Etheridge - she rekhwested this t u n e - and it is furry appropriate and fitting fur many reasons fur some of my friends.
Next, I'll inkhlude Mark Knopfler again - I mentioned him with Dire Straits BUT I akhtually prefer his solo stuff - his guitar makes me melt. Here is a s o n g he did with Emmylou Harris. If you khan listen to this song WITHOUT getting goosebumps, you must STILL be asleep. He wrote this after thinking of those affekhted by 9/11. What if the khall or note you were able to make or write WAS goodbye. (I just shuddered writing those words).
I like Matchbox Twenty - here is one I pulled for t h e m . When I furst got that cd, it was a definite favourite song.
Okay - here are two that I'll admit I listened to and enjoyed bakhk in the day but I'll deny it BUT add I don't khare for their newer stuff. O n e and T w o
NOW for some to make sure you are awake - how about some M o l l y H a t c h e t , M o t o r h e a d , and one of THE BEST videos EVER done - M e t a l l i c a and One
Are you awake NOW?
Another M I always enjoyed was Michelle Shocked - and she did a song that certainly applies to 'us' - Anchorage. It is among the song choices on her myspace page. I prefer her "If love was a train" and found it on youtube BUT by a new artist I should have inkhluded in my "A" post. So, take a listen to A m y L aVe r e .
One last newer M artist would be Madeleine Peyroux - and as fate would have it, http://www.xpn.org/ just happened to play one of her songs.
I'm sure some would have said Motley Crue - but I never khared much for 'em.
What "M's" would you inkhlude? I khan't wait to see them!
Khyra and I wish evfurryone a safe and fun long weekend! She'll be bakhk tomorrow. I'm not sure what she has in mind but I'm sure she'll do her best to dazzle AND entertain!
Hugz&Khysses from Khyra's Khorner!
PeeEssWoo: Mom bakhk: I just thought of another one - Manhattan Transfer - must be bekhause I thought of a certain Army of Four!

It is time for another edition of Musikh Monday/Momday. We 'l'eft on Friday with L The Groups SO today finds us with L The Artists.
I know many of you might associate him with some Dead Skunk song BUT he is so much more! Please find out that he is SOOO much more than that by chekhking out Loudon Wainwright III's m y s p a c e page - please be sure to listen to Daughter - either on his page OR via the video I've inkhluded.
Another great L artist would be Linda Thompson - the last name will return BUT with different first names when we hit the R's and the T's!
One overlooked L artist - with great guitar talent - would be Leo Kotke
Some newer L's to give a 'l'isten to would be Lennon , Laura Cheadle , and Lori McKenna .
BUT to me the L artist that is my favourite alltime L artist is Lucinda Williams . Be sure to hit 'Are you alright?' when you hit her myspace page. Khwite the song IMHO at least! I didn't get turned onto her until late 2004 BUT I found her right in time AND there is something about what happens when we talk. As a special added feature - and a chance to inkhlude an artist that khould have made the E list, please chekhk out Greenville .
Again, so many L's - so 'l'ittle room and/or time! Although HIS walk on the wild side is a bit different than our walks with Siberians, there is Lou Reed . Ha roooooo!
There you have it! L The Artists! As always, I await YOUR pikhks!
Turbo's VP running mate Khyra will return tuemorrow - and a furry special TWOmorrow it will be!
Until then, hugz&khysses from Khyra's Khorner!

Yesterday, I had originally planned to post about TWO furry important events I will be pawticipating in over the khoming weeks.
The furst one starts in a bit more than a week. Please chekhk out what our khween Meeshka has planned to khommence 01-Sept . Anybuddy - khanine, f****e, or human - knows what she is khapable of!
AND, as a special treat during her week of blog posts, many of us SMS members with blogs will be having our own SPECIAL post on Wednesday 03-Sept to help get the humans to show her the money!
The sekhond was to be four weeks from yesterday - that's why I had planned it to be Saturday's post. It is The Tails on The Trail. I went to last year's and had a blast! In fakht, it is where I got to meet my furst boyfriend THE BUTTERS after kharrying on a long distance relationship. BTW, The Butters hadn't been feeling well but seems to be doing better. Please khross your paws and get some POWER OF THE PAW and Sibe vibes going fur him!
ANYWAY, please take a khwikhk look at my khute face - if woo khan snag your humans' plastikh, please throw a few khoins into the KHYTTY fur TOTTSHR!
ONE LAST BREAKING NEWS ITEM - just received on my cell was THIS MESSAGE! I'm was sooo honoured and so furry flattered to have been asked! I mean the job of Khampaign Khoordinator was so very rewarding and I worked my FT off to get Turbo's message khommunikhated to the khountry AND the world. I never expekhted to be asked to be his running mate! Since I believe in him and his vision, I khould NOT say NO!
Well, I guess that will do it fur this one!
Since tomorrow is Monday, you know who will be here! That will enable me to give some serious Siberian thought to how I khan best assist Turbo and see that he is elekhted as our new president!

This one is way more important - BIG TIME.
Furst off, I'd like that thank evfurryone fur the kind words 'round blog land 'bout my original post. I was only one of the messengers.
I had read about an offer by the stoopid khompany to help with Chai's medikhal bills BUT before I khould get there to read it, Jan's Funny Farm left a khomment on my post about the stoopid khompany informing of us of the update on Chai's blog - WELL, when I got there, I saw an UPDATE to the update - it made my mom sad and she leaked. It turns out the stoopid khompany had known of these issues fur some years.
As soon as Mom read that, she fired off an email to those pawerful SMS Moms -
Our khween Meeshka's nice mom updated Gimpydogs with the disappointing news - and a link to a flyer to print out and take to pet stores near woo -
This stoopid khompany has pikhked the wrong group to mess with - our humans love us more than they love themselves - and that is A LOT given the khollekhtive ego of the human race anymore -
WE will see justice for Chai and the other khanines that have been hurt by the stoopid khompany -
Please tell your humans to help in any way they khan -
Hugz&Khysses to all - and a special flip of my fluffy tail fur Chai,
PeeEssWoo: Mom says thanks fur the L The Group khomments - she's glad woo liked 'em - and as always, loves seeing the other suggestions/khonsiderations!
Friday, August 22, 2008
Khyra's mom here - time for another Musikh MOMday! Today we'll touch on the L's - and since there would be too many to 'l'ump together, today will be L The Groups!
Of khourse, we have to kikhk it off with this one - after all, it helped provide the title for the Friday version of Musikh Momday - please turn up those speakers fur L o v e r b o y .
From there, I offer Living Colour - I've always been very taken by the song 'Cult of Personality' -
Living HERE since 1972 (meaning York), I have to give due khredit to LIVE .
Of khourse, no list of L The Groups from my 'impressionable' years would be khomplete without L e d Z e p p l i n (and no it is NOT Stairway To Heaven but it so khould be), L y n y r d S k y n y r d (but yes this IS Free bird), or Little Feat (pikhk a song, any song - I even saw them TWICE in khoncert!).
By now, you've all noticed the diversity of my musikhal tastes. Once again, I have to throw this one in here L o n e s t a r . This song is dedikhated to a certain gal with a fluffy tail - and in a roundabout way to the person that allowed me to get to the point in my life when I khould get on with my life and akhtually GET a life.
Another L that has multiple appearances on my excel sheet for my cd khollekhtion is Lifehouse . I suggest 'Hanging by a Moment' .
I'll khonkhlude my L The Groups with L o g g i n s & M e s s i n a . I khould have chosen 'House at Pooh Corner' by I went with this one. Anytime I hear it, you have to know the speakers get turned up - it is just a khool song (IMHO)!
SO, there you go: L The Groups! I know I've overLooked some - I mean, I khould have inkhluded Los Lobos, Los Lonely Boys, Lucero, etc etc etc. But I have to draw the line SOMEWHERE - otherwise Miss Fluffy Tail wouldn't get HER blog bakhk!
I'll be bakhk on Monday with L The Artists.
Please feel free to share YOUR favourite L's!
We send our wishes fur a great weekend! Khyra will be bakhk tomorrow!

There is a very dangerous toy out there - PLEASE make sure your humans chekhk your toy stash fur it and if you do have one PLEASE GET RID OF IT IMMEDIATELY -
The OP Pakhk's mom furst shared the news with the other SMS moms on Wednesday after reading about it on Gucci's Blog- it saddened all of us - many of them wrote the khompany responsible fur it -
Meeshka and her human woman have posted something out there that sums up the situation and what we need to get our humans to do fur us - PLEASE chekhk it out and do what woo khan. Here is the link.
Please warn your people that the story is khwite sad - and it might khause them to leak.
PeeEssWoo: Mom will be here tomorrow with Workin' Fur The Weekend - L - The Groups!

Welkhome to another episode of Walkin' Wednesday!
This week is a BONUS week - woo will get TWO videos!
Last week I mentioned Moose - the JRT that is annoying - I indikhated that I kinda just look at him likes he's a mutant or something. Well, my buddy Ekhho mentioned how disappointed he was when Moose wasn't out last week. Well, he was on Monday night SOOOO we shot a short one of Moose. Once Mom realized he was out, she made the magikh khopper box start to work - so you'll notice my pace pikhk up - please check out HERE for K h y r a s e e s M o o s e
Now fur our normal Wednesday feature. Just as Mom was chekhking the SMS mail befur we headed out, Summi's mummi khalled so she walked along with us too. (To tell the truth, she was on the phone the ENTIRE time we walked. Those humoms khan surely woo alot!). Here is this week's walk that starts just about where we left off LAST week! This one is a bit longer so it had to go to youtube - please khlikhk HERE for W a l k i n' W e d n e s d a y
I'd like to thank evfurryone for the kind and khool khomments on yesterday's post! I should have khalled that one my SPOTCHA Day post - since that is what it was! Next Tuesday is my OFFICIAL Gotcha Day!
Have a great day wherever woo are!
Tuesday, August 19, 2008
So, I'm going to pass it along to Makhk's Mess
and I'm going to let Mom award it to someone - she told me to let River's mom know that she was passing it along to her. River's mom does lots of khool doggie transport and fostering things SO that surely makes her nice!
Once again, Mom would like to thank all of woo fur the great khomments and suggestions for K groups! Mom soooo feels stoopid fur overlooking Kansas, The Kinks, Kate Bush; and some of the others mentioned (Kylie Minogue, Kajagoogoo) surely made for some interesting ideas!
Have a great Tuesday!

I don't have any of this one in my khollekhtion BUT no musikh K listing khould NOT inkhlude this one - and we'll even make this a ladies' choice with a special Beth in the spotlight dance for Kiss's B E T H
More K ladies would be Kathleen Edwards - who is akhtually the one on John Doe's Golden State. Her new release "Asking For Flowers" is a very good CD.
Another K lady would be Kaki King who akhtually khombines the khategories - she's a newer artist on the scene.
For the male K's - I offer Keb' Mo' with this V i d e o - it inkhludes another artist I have in my khollekhtion as well. Keb has some very good song lyrikhs AND he's khwite the talented stringed instruement artist.
No mention of K males khould omit Kenny Wayne Shepherd - I offer this V i D e O - since many of Khyra's Sibe furiends are akhtually this!
Two newer K males to give a listen to - one is lokhal to me - in fakht, I've seen him play with his group Voxology - that is Kevin Neidig - he is very talented and a pleasure to listen to!
I was akhtually turned onto this other newer male by Kodak's blog - so I chekhked him out on myspace - please give a listen to Kevin So who recently played with Keb' Mo' !
Well, there you have it - another edition of Musikh Monday/Momday! As always, I khan't wait to hear about the "K's" in your khollekhtion!
Have a great week! Khyra will be bakhk tue-morrow!

King Sky boy with the little princess Bi-ped in the bakhkground!
We've seen The AO4's khookie formation so we formed our own
GOT IT! And then we got some furri yummi Happy Hearts! Princess Sunshine Meadow and one of her favourite lounging pawsitions!
Look at the khool pressies The Kapp Pakhk gave me! My OWN bottle of KGJ and glass!

Friday, August 15, 2008
As she sent me out the door this am, she asked I inkhlude Happy Birthday wishes to some furry special khanine pals: Dakota of the OP Pakhk and Jackson . Princess Dakota's is today! Khyra told me I have to make the yummi wooskhotti that Dakota's mom made fur her pawty!
Jackson's birthday was earlier in the week but he had some surgery so his people were waiting until he was a bit more able to be the pawty animal!
I hope I khommunikhated Khyra's messages properly - I'm sure if I didn't, she'll tell woo all tomorrow!
Now, time for workin' for the weekend - J - THE GROUPS! Some of these khame from suggestions left during J posts for ladies furst and guys of note - so here goes!
The furst one I'm 'cheating' a bit with - I had meant to inkhlude this song with J males - John Doe's The Golden State - he was part of the group X - this song is akhtually the ring tone on my cellphone.
Another J group would be appropriate for the state that some of my furiends live in - The Jayhawks even if the group was/is more from the state where other furiends rule and reign.
Whilst on the subjekht of Kansas, how about this one: Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit although it is probably more appropriate to say 'go ask Ammy'! Of khourse, Jefferson Airplane did evolve/devolve into Jefferson Starship - I did see them in Kholumbia Merryland bakhk in 1980 - I'll spare starting an earworm with a song title that starts with J !
How about James Gang and Walk Away? - although with Siberians in one's life there is no such thing as WALKING away - it is more like a mad dash!
Since I was a young'un in the 60's/70's, I have to inkhlude The Jackson 5 - sorry!
Now for some harder sounds to jump start the weekend: Judas Priest and Breaking The Law - which I know some of us do from time to time. I saw them in 1980 or 1981 . AND no J list khould be khomplete without Joan Jett and The Blackhearts - I know you'll know which song this is!
I've inkhluded so many 'older' J groups that I'll keep the 'newer' list shorter - chekhk out JJ Grey and Mofro - they akhtually list Jakhksonville as their home just like The RHP! John Cowan Band is another newer one I've listened to in the past few years - chekhk out one of their tunes that inkhludes the state where another of our pals reside .
I hope woo enjoy the J groups I've khollekhted fur today!
Hugz&Khysses From Khyra's Khorner. She'll be bakhk tomorrow! Have a safe and happy weekend all!

About a mile from the house
One of the bakhk dekhks from a house in the sekhond pikh
My bakhk patio
The golf khourse
A 'river' that formed between my house and the neighborAnd then it was GONE!
This past Sunday, we had some WILD weather! Merdie and I took our walk - Mom knew it was khoming SO went earlier than normal. During the walk, it started to rumble. Within about fifteen minutes of getting bakhk to the house, it started. Mom gave Merdie a magikh pink pill - that took the edge off Merdie!
It rained - sideways - and then the hail started! Pea size (woo missed it Ekhho!) then small grapes (bad for khanines!) then bakhk to peas. It must have rained about an inch or two during the approximate half hour it lasted. When Mom took the pikh of the 'river', she was standing in water up to her ankles!
My Doggy Nanny and Fred went out to dinner about 630pm (this all had happened around 4pm or so) and about a mile or two from the house (in another direkhtion from the furst pikhs above) there was soooo much hail it looked like someone had plowed. When Mom went to work on Monday and she passed that area at 615am, THERE WAS STILL HAIL THERE! In fakht, this morning, one of the intersekhtions still had some of that fugly stuff that looks like a mud kholoured slushie!
It was pretty wild! I mean, it is AUGUST! I appreciate the dogs days of summer trying to make the weather khool fur us working breeds BUT it was toooooo wet to get out and enjoy!
Mom says thanks fur the khomments about yesterday's J guys of note post. She'll probably use some of the suggestions fur this Friday's J groups of note!
I want to say that I will proudly show and share my recent awards on THURSDAY's post. We had wanted to do that 'tue'day BUT I khouldn't pass up the hail pikhs!
Monday, August 11, 2008
Of khourse, any list HAS to inkhlude Jimi Hendrix - I khould name song after song BUT I found this video on youtube that pays a nice tribute to him. His guitar talents are beyond deskhription!
Another 'J' that khame to mind would be Jim Croce - another fantastikh songwriter taken from us too early - there are so many hit songs I'm sure you associate with him but here is a lesser known song BUT no less impressive .
Then there is Jackson Browne - of khourse, I'm sure many of us have many Jackson Browne songs runnin' round their brain, but I chose this one .
Khyra's pal Dave from Kansas says Joe Jackson is khool SO fur Dave, we offer THIS ONE .
Two other J's that I've filled my khollekhtion with would be John Prine and Jay Farrar (you'll hear more from him when I hit the "U's" (Uncle Tupelo).
Newer and/or lokhal J's have to inkhlude Josh Ritter , Jeffrey Gaines , Justin Townes Earle (the son of Steve Earle named in part for Townes Van Zandt, and one that is akhutually 'old like me' John Flynn. I've inkhluded two videos of his from YouTube. The furst one is named for his last album Two Wolves and one that raises gooseflesh everytime I hear it Dover .
So there ya go fur another 'episode' of Musikh MondayMomday -
What J Guys of Note khome to YOUR minds? I look furward to hearing/seeing them!
Khyra says to pass along the Merdie's people khame fur her last evening. Of khourse, that was AFTER all the Sunday afternoon hailstorm fun. We'll throw some pikhs up soon AND inkhlude some from a few miles from our house. To put it in perspekhtive, at 6:15am Monday, there were STILL hail piles on my way to work! And the storm happened around 4pm Sunday!
Have a great week all! Khyra says tails up until tuemorrow!
Hugz&Khysses from Khyra's Khorner!

Whilst Mom was uploading the videos, she looked out and saw some khool kholours in the sky - so she grabbed the khamera and khaught them to share with all of woo!
Aren't they beautiful?
Mom did khatch one of our play sessions Saturday BUT even though we did it in the kitchen, it is a bit dark - I told her to inkhlude it anyway so woo khan see how much fun we had! Believe it or not, Merdie started this one. She started pawing me and HEY, I'm there! Woo khan see THAT by khlikhing H E R E
And since I've not shared my huzziness recently, here is a shot from Friday night!
Hope evfurryone has a nice Sunday! Don't furget, Mom will be here tomorrow fur Musikh Mon/Momday with J Guys of Note.
Khyra and Merdie
Saturday, August 9, 2008
Hoping her daddy khomes bakhk fur her!
Keeping an eye on Doggy Nanny and Fred

I'm going to pass this award on to ALL the SMS bloggers! Please sit up and take a (play)bow fur your kindness and khoncern fur each other without having to worry about staying on topikh!
Hope evfurryone has a great weekend - the weather here is great! Mom akhtually switched off the husky khool air last night SO we khould have the windows WIDE OPEN!
Khyra and Merdie The GoldenDoofTriever too!
PeeEssWoo: Mom says THANKS fur all the khool khomments about her J-Ladies Furst post! She has such fun doing this - I guess I ought to rub her tummy or something!
