I'm still here

Sorry, it's been a month since I've posted!!
I've been busy lately.
It's FINALLY getting cooler around here, so I've been hanging out on the deck a lot.
The humans (sigh) put a big fence around our yard, so no chance of getting out. BUT, they're also getting rid of the mud in the yard and putting up some nice concrete. It's about time. They know how I feel about muddy paws.
I've been going to the dog park a lot. Here's a picture of me with one of my friends.
Ooh, and I have big news. I'm going to be in a parade Sunday!! It's in Northeast Philadelphia. I'll be parading with Mapaw Siberian Husky Rescue. So hopefully some fellow bloggers will be there.
I'll post pictures afterward. The stupid humans spent a million dollars on new iPhones, instead of dog treats, the least they can do is take some pictures of me with them.
I'll also post pictures of the new backyard, once it's done.
I'll try to be better about blogging. I will be heading to everyone's blogs to catch up today.

Dog park

Yesterday we went to a new dog park with a bunch of dogs and volunteers from Mapaw Siberian Husky Rescue and Referral, who my humans apparently are volunteering with now. It's called Dog Town, in Colmar. It was inside, on fake grass. We were even allowed to pee inside and we didn't get yelled at!
Lots of Sibes were there, plus one Newfie, Ananya. My humans, of course, forgot their camera, but the Kapp Pack's well-trained humans brought theirs, so go check out the pictures.
And just for the record, apparently even though my humans are volunteering with a rescue again, they'll still have time to take me to obedience class. Sigh.

An exciting night!

Isis may have to apply for HULA (though she's not as good as me, of course)
Around 3 am, Isis started running around the bedroom worriedly. I, naturally, was asleep in the bathroom, so some of this was told to me by Isis. She woke the humans up. They smelled poo, but didn't see any anywhere. Isis continued to look worried, and ran down the stairs. I wanted to see what was going on, so I headed down too. They let us out, and we ran out, peed, and sniffed around a bit. What fun! A 3 am pee and sniff, and the humans were all tired. Before too long they dragged us back in.
Up we go, I go back to the bathroom, Isis, the suckup, follows them back into the bedroom, where they STILL smell poo. After more careful investigation, they find a large, soft poo in the human mom's closet, on some of her shoes-including a brand new pair she hadn't even worn yet!!
A triumphant night for HULA.
Now, this isn't without sacrifices. Because she had soft poo, I heard them discussing not letting us have any treats today. Sigh. Every silver lining has a cloud.
But, there was talk of a dog park visit this weekend. A new, INDOOR one, so even if it rains, we can go. Rumor has it quite a few huskies may be going, so that should be exciting. I'll be sure to remind the humans to bring their camera and get some pictures.

Ray came in handy

On our birthdays the humans get us cheeseburgers for dinner.
Now, sure, we should get cheeseburgers every day for dinner, but that doesn't seem to be the case. So, three times a year, on Feb. 8 (the fat dog's birthday), April 8 (MY birthday) and October 8 (the no-eyed dog's birthday) we get cheeseburgers.
So Happy Birthday Ray. Hope you have lots more, so I can have more cheeseburgers.

Friday, October 5, 2007


Good thing I eavesdrop, or I wouldn't know anything.
So the humans were talking the other day, something about taking a "rescue break" and since they'd have so much free time, they want to take Isis and I to...gulp....OBEDIENCE CLASS. Are they insane? Obedience??? Like, be obedient?
Clearly they've taken leave of their senses. Cause unless this means they learn to be more obedient to me, we're gonna have trouble.

How to keep your humans busy

OK, the humans were busy on this website for a while the other day. Now, sure, that meant I couldn't blog.
But it also meant I could steal a bag of potato chips off the table and not get caught. They had no idea what we were doing, they were too busy taking this stupid music quiz.
So pass the word along (be sure to blog first, as you may not get the computer for a while)

Monday, September 17, 2007

Sorry everyone

My human has HOGGED the stupid computer, and I've also been very busy.
I'm sorry I haven't posted as much as I should have.
I'll give a quick update.
They left me home the day of the hike. Apparently they had a lot to do, and I would've gotten in the way. Hmph, I say.
So I got back at them yesterday.
I dug a HUGE hole in the yard, down to the cable wires, then came in acting weird, circling, and acting goofy. The humans thought they'd have to take me to the ER, and were getting ready to. Then I acted fine. So they worried and worried. Then after I acted normal for a few hours, they took Isis and I to the dog park, and then went walking on South Street!
SO if you want to go to the dog park, act weird and get 'em all worried. They'll be so happy you're OK, you'll go to the dog park, and hopefully get some root beer water ice after!

Awful weekend

The stupid humans ruined my entire weekend.
They were redoing the living room. So they had put new drywall up on the ceiling. Saturday they started sanding to make it smooth or something.
SO there's dust all over the house, and my fluffy coat. Everywhere.
Then they moved all the furniture to the middle of the room. So nothing was where it's supposed to be. Ray flopped right in the path so it was hard to get by. AND I couldn't get in the window all weekend, because the sofa wasn't there to jump up in.
Then, like all that wasn't bad enough, I got paint on my coat.
Something has to be done about this. Sashaville is not running as smoothly as I'd like it to.
Clearly it's time for me to put my paw down.
Sasha, with Bungalow Gold highlights.

I've also been busy

Oh, so listen to this. Saturday a bunch of humans from DVSHR, Mapaw, and HTHNBR came over. There were BOXES and BOXES of treats. TONS of treats. All those boxes that have come to the house for weeks and weeks came out. Woohoo, I thought. FINALLY we get the treats.
Nope. All the treats went into bags and baskets for the hike. Big bags of peanut butter biscuits, chicken jerky, sample bags of treats, even YUMMY CHUMMIES!! What did I get? One louse peanut butter and molassas biscuit that was floating around loose, that I had to share with stupid Isis. I mean there was a ton of stuff. They made like 20 baskets to raffle off, with tons of cool stuff, and a zillion goodie bags for hikers. They couldn't spare 10-20 bags of treats for me??
Then they ate dinner, and I did my best to mooch meatballs. No luck there either.
Clearly paybacks are necessary. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I'm back

The stupid humans have been busy planning the hike and have been hoarding the computer. Quite frankly, I'm sick of it.
Speaking of the hike, I checked out the hike trail.
Here's Isis, Blue and I practicing.
I am still collecting pledges, so if you can spare a couple dollars, I'd appreciate it. You can send via paypal, or mail to

The Paypal link is right there at the top left of my blog.
Thanks everyone!

Well, I can't believe it

I was nosing through the human mom's email, and LOOK what I found.
First, they're there, eating that nice cake.

Then, there's a pic of them onstage, laughing it up. Note Meeshka's human up there too.

Finally, oh, look, let's pose with the musher. Again, my human and Meeshka's.

Could they rub it in our faces any more??

Those humans are gonna get it.

Originally uploaded by Shmoomeema
OK, time to put my paw down. Meeshka's human woman stopped by Saturday (without Meeshka, of course) She came with some other human guy, who apparently does that rescue stuff. They pet us a little, bribed us with cheese to not claw them for leaving us (didn't work) then off they went to meet Karen Ramstead.
Here they are, having fun, not caring at all that we're stuck at home. These are a bunch of the rescue people. There's Meeshka's human woman in yellow, and my human dad is next to her. Karen Ramstead is sitting down, in black. My human woman is on the right, leaning over. And, take note, there's a dog there. So it's not like dogs weren't allowed. Apparently just Meeskha and I weren't allowed.
Obviously this will not go unpunished. Meeshka, we have to talk.

Saturday, August 4, 2007

It just gets worse

So, apparently, not only are they leaving ME behind,but I just found out that Meeshka's human is coming over here to go to the Karen thing with my humans. And, yep, you guessed it, Meeshka's not coming either.
So Meeshka's human woman is coming here, without Meeshka, then all the humans head off to do something cool, without any of us.
Obviously, Meeshka and I will have to discuss what we're going to do about this. We can't let them get away with this kind of behavior.
I swear, sometimes these humans are more trouble than they're worth.
Sasha, sharpening the claw

Friday, August 3, 2007

This'll be a lousy weekend

So I heard the humans talking. They're going somewhere to hear Karen Ramstead talk, and they're not taking us! Karen runs the Iditarod with a team of purebred Siberian Huskies, yet, the Siberian Husky here is being left behind. I was hoping she'd take us and I could convince Karen to take me home. It's much cooler where she lives, and maybe I'd get to ride in the sled. Obviously I'm not actually going to pull a sled, geez. Apparently, since the humans won't be around, this means I won't be able to do anything cool this weekend, like go to the dog park, or blog, or anything.
So I thought I'd take this time to remind you of the hike and to ask again for your support. If you could swipe the credit cards (I know you just did this for Meeshka) and pledge even a little bit towards my hike, I can get a goodie bag full of the cool stuff in the boxes downstairs they won't let us near. You can pledge via paypal or you can send a check to
PO Box 21202
Philadelphia, PA 19114
The money, sadly, does not go to me. It goes to foster dogs in the rescue. I guess that's a good cause too.
So please click the button below if you can help, even with a little bit.

And by the way, if you want me to link to your blog, and I haven't already, remind me to, please. I tried to list everyone, but I know I forgot some people.

Those were the days....

It's never going to be cold again. It's been 5000 degrees here forever.
I hate the heat. My fluffy coat isn't made for the heat. I don't know why these humans don't just realize that and bring me to Alaska where I belong.
Ah, the good old days....

Monday, July 30, 2007

I am SO talented

I can eat off of a fork, very nicely. I am a Queen, after all.
If I had opposable thumbs, I would have NO need for the humans.
I just need to convince them to set me a place at the table.

Treat dispenser

The humans went to an event (without me, by the way) and won a basket full of dog treats. They're making me share some of them with Ray and Isis, but one of them is MINE MINE MINE.
It's a treat dispenser! I just nose it around, and treats pop out.
And I haven't even chewed it into pieces yet.
Look how cool!

Saturday, July 28, 2007

LOOK at all this stuff

OK, now look at all this stuff that is coming to the house. It's all for the hike. They won't let us have ANY.
Except, if you note, in the second photo, Isis did get 3 bags out for us.
But still, like a zillion boxes there, we can't have 1???
It's so not fair.

New blogger

I recently met a new blogger via Meeshka's site. Her name is Bama. Stop by and visit. She and her siblings are pretty good at terrorizing the humans.
Welcome to blogging, Bama!

Friday, July 27, 2007

I tag everyone

I'm not tagging anyone in particular, but I want everyone who reads this to tell their story on their blog, so spread the word, OK?
How did you come to be with the humans you own?
I went to live with my humans in April of 1999. My human mom said she went to the Humane Society to help her sister in law pick out a dog. She wasn't looking for a dog for herself. Little did she know...
She and the human dad had planned on going to a pet store (can you believe it??) to get a Siberian Husky, because they didn't think there were purebred dogs in shelters. Geez, they are stupid.
She walked in, I was on the second cage to the left. Who can resist a beautiful, bi-eyed black and white Siberian Husky? I immediately pegged her as a human I could manipulate, so I decided I wanted to go home with her. I gave her The Look, and she was hooked. She walked up the aisle, then back down, and I kept looking at her.
Then she called the human dad and told him about me. Apparently adoption hours were over, so they came back first thing the next morning, as soon as the shelter opened.
I was at the shelter for a while, and they were talking about calling husky rescue to take me. So I took matters into my own hands.
They decided when I came home they weren't going to let any dogs up on the furniture. Guess how long THAT lasted.
I taught them all the proper Siberian Husky ways. I pulled on leash, I knocked over the big plant (3 times) and dug up the carpet behind the plant. I dug holes in the yard and snuck in next doors yard to play with their Beagle and their Boxer. I stole cantaloupe, fudge, Motrin, candles, books, phonebooks, and my human's wedding shoes 2 weeks before the wedding. I took their stuff off the tables and hid them under my chair.
Then, just when they would get totally frustrated with me, I would turn on the cute. The "pet me" look, the belly up for rubs...and they weren't mad anymore.
So, that's how I came to run Sashaville, here in Philadelphia.
What's your story?

Thursday, July 26, 2007


I got tagged by Quincy and Tristin to answer 5 questions.
Here they are:

Where is your favorite place to sleep??
I think I"ve posted this pic, but here in the bathroom, around the toilet, in the way.

Is there a specific trick your humans make you do to get treats??
We have an understanding. Give me the treat, and I don't claw you.

If you could spend an entire day doing anything at all with anyone what would you do and with whom??
I would wake up, in the human bed. They would be on the floor on the dog beds. For breakfast, I would have liverwurst in bed. Then I would ride, in the front seat with no seatbelt, to the dog park, where only Sasha-approved dogs would be allowed. Next, a shopping trip to the grocery store. Forget the pet store. I want my treats to come from the butcher. I'd like some chicken, fliet mignon, shrimp, turkey, perhaps a nice salmon, and of course cheese and liverwurst. Some ice cream for dessert. After the humans make lunch from what we purchased, I would take a nap in the bay window. Perhaps snack on a hardback book or two. Then I would beat up Isis and Ray Charles, without getting yelled at by the humans. I would go in and out all day without the humans complaining about having to open the doors constantly for me. Next, midafternoon snack. Then a nap, and dinner. Then and I would go out and play in the snow for a while, since of course if it's me day, it would have snowed, followed by a bedtime snack. Then I would sit down, at my own computer, and blog about the day.

What is your favorite toy??
I don't play with toys. Unless Isis is having fun with one, then I want that.

If you could change one thing in your life. What would you change??
The humans would never get on my sofa or bed.

Let's see, I tag the Kapp Pack, Doodles, and Dakota.

SO not fair

Yesterday, 2 good smelling packages came in the mail addressed to the humans, but smelled like they were for us.
One had Wysong dog food samples, the other had YUMMY CHUMMIES. Obviously they're for us, so I waited for our treats. And waited. And waited.
Apparently they were for the hike and NOT for us.
Well, I'm hiking, so I should get some. Apparently it's not working that way. They are going to go in goodie bags for the hikers, and into raffle baskets. Apparently I'll be buying a lot of raffle tickets. Maybe Isis can break into the box, like she did with those other treats (also for the hike, there are boxes of treats down there, taunting us)
I made the human mom go order us some YUMMY CHUMMIES. So if they come soon, maybe I won't claw her.
They better come soon....

Blogathon 2007

Just wanted to remind everyone that Meeshka will need everyone's support for Blogathon 2007! Can you believe it starts this Saturday?
Meeshka will be staying up for 24 hours blogging every 1/2 hour.
She's going to need our help to stay awake.
So I will be staying up with her.
And it's not too late to pledge to Meeshka, either!
Good luck to Steve, Kat and Wilbur, who are also blogging for Adopt A Husky of Dallas.

My favorite books

Holly has tagged me to list my 5 favorite books. OK, this is a tough one, but I'll give it my best.
1) The Yellow Pages phone book. I like the texture, there's lots to eat, and it makes a huge mess on the floor when it's well-scattered.
2)Cookbooks!! They look so good, and the stupid humans won't cook any of that for me.
So why have cookbooks around? I eat 'em every chance I get.
3) Hardbacks. I love the hardback covers. Yum! (I do have to say I'm partial to James Patterson novels, largely because they are on the bottom shelf of the bookcase and easy to reach)
4) Yearbooks. My human mom left her high school yearbook out once. I only got to eat the spine, but it wasn't bad. Well-aged.
5) Files. OK, not exactly a book. But the humans keep track of rescue dogs here. Leave a file out, it's lunchtime.
I tag Georgie and Magic, Quincy and Tristin, and Girl Girl

Time capsule

Indy tagged me to list 5 things I would put in a time capsule. At first I thought they meant 5 things I would put away, never to come back. That's easy.
1) Thunder
2) Fireworks
3) Tshirts
4) Baths
5) Dog Brushes
Actually, there are a lot more things I want to put in there....
However, apparently the 5 things are my 5 favorite things.
Which is a little trickier.

1) My couch (without Isis taking up all the room)
2) My bay window, where I love to look out (you can see it in the photo above my couch)
3) Chicken Jerky!
4) Liverwurst (thanks to Ray for the liverwurst, he's the one who won't eat his creaky dog pills in anything else!)
5) Ice Cream

Isis looks like an idiot

At Horsham Day on Saturday, someone was giving away stupid head things. Of course the humans felt compelled to bring them home and try them on Isis. They didn't even think of trying it on me. Isis should be ashamed of herself for letting them get away with this. She is an anti-husky. I'm embarrassed to be seen with her.
She also let them put a tshirt on her at events.
I don't know what to do with her.
Sasha, with Isis, making me embarrassed to be a husky

Sunday, July 15, 2007

My big weekend

Yesterday I got to go to Horsham Day, which is an event that Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue goes to. There were lots of dogs to butt sniff with, and lots of people to mooch food from. I got to hang with Magic and Georgie too, since they went to the event. Georgie seems to be feeling better, by the way.
It was HOT at the event, so my human mom went to WaWa and got me an ice cream cup. That helped me cool off for sure.
And today, I had brussels sprouts. Yum!!
Oh, and Meeshka's stupid human woman finally got my information on the hike site.
Go there, click on pledge information, then find ME if you want to sponsor me.
AND Xia is home. She's the one with the broken leg. Turns out they could fix it, so she just had surgery that cost $1800. That would've bought me a LOT of biscuits, I think.
PLUS a rescue person just went and got a mom and 3 pups from somewhere called North Carolina. They're in a foster home mow. I like puppies, I think my human mom should go get one for me.
So that's it, I had a big weekend today, lots to report.

Thursday, July 12, 2007


Quincy and Tristin clued me into this cool website where you can make a slogan out of your name!
Mine, is, obviously, "Wouldn't you like to be a Sasha too?"
Of course, who wouldn't want to be a Sasha? However, sorry for all of you, there is only one Sasha.
My Sasha movie quote is "You can't handle the Sasha!"
Another true and obvious quote.
So everyone get out there and sloganize!!

Hurt puppy

Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue just took in a 7-8 month old puppy.
Apparently she has a broken leg, and some humans tied her to the door of the SPCA.
They thought they'd have to cut her leg off (euw) but it turns out they're gonna pin it back together.
But this pinning stuff is apparently expensive, and requires a big operation, and vet visits, and other annoying things.
So thanks to everyone who's sponsored Meeshka in Blogathon, since that money is going to be going to little Xia's surgery.
And I imagine a lot of the money from that hike thing will go to her as well. Apparently none will go to my biscuit fund or my liverwurst fund. Sigh. So thanks to all who are supporting Meeshka at blogathon, and me for the hike, cause it's going to a good cause.
Just for the record, I'm bored today.
I've stomped on the humans, stomped Isis (who won't play with me) clawed the humans a few times, and now I'm bored.
It's too hot to go outside and play, there's nothing to do in the house, and I'm bored, bored, bored. Someone come over and play with me, or I'll have to go back to human clawing, which is now boring too.
Stupid heat, stupid Isis, stupid Ray, stupid everything.

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

Thanks, Holly!

Thanks yet again to Holly for being my first official hike sponsor!!
If the humans are gonna drag me out to hike, I may as well try to make as much as I can, right?
Pledges can be via Paypal to
Or mailed to
PO Box 21202
Philadelphia, PA 19114
And I think Meeshka should hike too, don't you think?
And remember to drag your humans to PA on September 1! Then we can meet.

Monday, July 9, 2007

I'm a rocking girl blogger!!!

Thanks to Holly for nominating me to be a rocking girl blogger! If you know someone who is a cool girl blogger, you nominate them. Then they nominate 7 people (or dogs) and so on.
Just right click on the rocking girl blogger button, click save, then put it in your blog!
I nominate Storms and Amber of the Army of 4, Girl Girl, MayaMarie, Kelsey Ann, Opy, and Penny and Lola, from the Dogs of Jackman Avenue! I know that's 8, but 8 is my lucky number, and you all rock!!

I met my blog friend Magnum!

I met Magnum Saturday.
The humans went to check out Norristown Farm Park, where Mapaw Siberian Husky Rescue, Delaware Valley Siberian Husky Rescue and Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue are sponsoring a hike, and they brought Ray, Isis and I along.
Magnum was there with his human Mike, and we got to buttsniff and pee on top of each other's peespots.
I also got to meet Brandi, who lives with Kathy of Mapaw, but she's older and I didn't get too close. I know how to respect my elders.
So I had a fun Saturday, got to meet new friends, and saw Nero, who's Isis's friend (they both look alike!)
Maybe this whole "hike" thing won't be that bad.

Hike pledges

OK, as I mentioned, the humans are making me hike on September 1.
I am looking for dogs to pledge for my hike. You can either mail it or Paypal it.
Mail goes to
PO Box 21202
Philadelphia, PA 19114
Or pay via Paypal
Just let me know you pledge, so I can keep an eye out for it.
All the money of course goes to the rescue dogs with HTHNBR. I would really prefer that it go to my biscuit fund, but what can you do.
I'm also trying to talk Meeshka into coming to the hike and hiking with me.
All my blog friends are invited!! Let's have a dogblog party in PA!!
More info will be available at Harnessed to Hope's site
And I'll have to remember to post a picture of myself looking extra-fluffy after my stupid bath. I'm not Meeshka-fluffy, but still.
BTW, for some reason I can't put a stupid title on this post. I'll try later.

Weekend update

So every freaking night they need to set off fireworks? Really, is this necessary?
I have banned them from Sashaville, but apparently everyone hasn't heard.
So everyone, do keep Meeshka in your thoughts. Her air conditioning vent stopped working today!!! Oh, and she had to go to the vet.
So like this weekend wasn't bad enough with all the stupid noise. the humans gave us a bath. All of us. Now I look like I have mange, with lumps of hair sticking out all over.
Yesterday, Isis pulled a good HULA maneuver. She ate into a huge cardboard box full of treats, and got 3 little bags out. Apparently they're supposed to be for the hike goodie bags but she broke in and got some out for us!
And thanks to everyone supporting Meeshka for the blogathon. She has made nearly $1200 in pledges!
Keep up the good work, and keep the pledges and support for Meeshka coming.
I have offered to stay up with Meeshka for the 24 hours, in a show of support.
I will not blog as often as her, but I will have something to say occasionally.
Now, let me get back to drying myself on the human's bed.

Thursday, July 5, 2007

I hate fireworks

Stupid fireworks

Support Meeshka

So Blogathon 2007 is up and running!
On July 28, Meeshka will be blogging every half hour for 24 whole hours. No naps (except in between half hour blogs), no dinner break (has to scarf her food)
for a whole day!
And all the money she gets from huskies and people sponsoring her goes right to helping the dogs at Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue, Inc.
You can click this link then register and it should bring you to her blog.
Or go to the Blogathon site which is alphabetical and find Meeshka's world, then click sponsor.
Plus, Meeshka says she has lots of cool prizes for sponsors, and she'll raffle them off during the blogathon!
So let's all show our support for the selfless Meeshka, and get the human's credit cards and get Meeshka LOTS of sponsors! Spread the word!
OOH, and I forgot to mention, you don't even NEED to steal the human's card to pay.
You pledge the money, and pay after the blog! By then, the humans won't realize you did it, they'll think THEY pledged and forgot!
So get a hold of the computer, and pledge for Meeshka! She made $1000 last year, let's see if she can do better this year.

Wednesday, July 4, 2007


Today I decided to let the humans sleep till 8! Then I clawed one side of the bed, then the other, then back to the first side, until they made room for me.
The human mom finally sat up so I could take over her pillows.
It's nice and cool today, so they decided to take Isis and I to the DOGPARK!!!! There were lots of dogs there. We played a while. That little dog there loved to play chase, so Isis and I chased him all over. Here is Isis running. Since she doesn't have a blog of her own, I'll let her stick her video on mine.

After the DOGPARK, we walked South Street and got pretzels and Irish Water Ice.

Monday, July 2, 2007

New bloggers

BTW, Quincy and Tristin, both adopted from Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue, have gotten hold of the human's computer and have their own blog!
Quincy was a 4 week old puppy with parvo, which is something apparently very bad, but he is very good at getting into trouble.
Tristin was very scared when he came into rescue, but Quincy is teaching him how to be a husky and wreak havoc.
So stop by and say hi to them!
Sasha, happy to add two new friends to our world domination efforts.

I've been tagged

OK, Sitka and Tia tagged me to talk about the human mom and dad. Really, they're not as important as me, but OK, I'll talk about them.
I'm their first husky. Now, of course, they're ruined for huskies forever, because none will be as perfect as me. Too bad for them.
Apparently they both always wanted a husky. They didn't know about rescues so they were going to go to a pet store (bad places, avoid 'em) to get a husky puppy.
The human mom went to the shelter with a friend who was getting a dog. They walk in, and look at the second cage on the left, and VOILA! It was me. I saw right away that I could train her well, so I wooed and looked cute a lot. She quickly called the human dad and told him about me. Adoption hours were over, so they came as soon as the shelter opened the next day to get me. I've been busy training them ever since.
They both are very active in rescue. They were two of the founding members of Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue. That means they take dogs from shelters and stuff and find good homes for them. Sometimes they come to stay here. Once I explain they're in Sashaville, and I'm the queen, things usually go well.
When they're not adoring me or doing rescue, my human mom is a nurse, and human dad does something called "environmental consulting". Whatever.
We live in Philadelphia, PA. They have known each other for 10 years and I've been with them for 8 years.
Recently the human mom's parents moved in with us, and that was a jackpot. THEY
are even better trained than my mom and dad. They give us treats anytime they go in the treat hallway, and are the keepers of the liverwurst treat we get at night.

Today was a big day! Isis and I got to go to the DOGPARK!!
I woke the humans up at 6, cause I was bored. They didn't seem to want to get up, so I clawed some, and that helped.
Then we went downstairs, and I clawed, and I stomped, and I ran.
They said something about me being obnoxious. Then (and this is the best part) they figured to run off some of my energy, we should go to the DOGPARK!
Of course, Isis had to come too. Never just take ME...
Anyway, it was a DOGPARK I've never been to before, though that suckup brat Isis apparently went last week. Someone's getting a claw for that..
It was cool, there were lots of dogs to play with.
Then we wandered around the neighborhood, got some water, and went back to the car just as it was getting hot.

FOR THE RECORD, I should've mentioned who is who.
The fat, lazy dog on top is Isis. I, of course, am the gorgeous black and white on the right. No self respecting husky would go to a DOGPARK and lay down!

I've been tagged

Tasha and Eva tagged me to share 7 random things about myself.
Here goes.
1) I love to eat hardback books, phonebooks, and candles
2) I HATE my paws getting muddy.
3) I like to sleep in the bathroom by the toilet, with the air conditioner vent blowing on my bloomers.
4) I don't like thunder or fireworks.
5) I ate my human mom's wedding shoe (just one!) 2 weeks before her wedding.
6) I don't like walking on tile or slippery floors. My feet slide.
7) I won't catch food if you throw it at me, but I will catch a snowball in my mouth.

I tag Meeshka, Indy , and Guinness and Shiloh.

By the way, if anyone wants to add a link to my blog, on their blog, please feel free. And let me know, I'll link to you! I'm having fun making new blog friends, and planning to take over the world.

Moron alert

I'm speechless.

Click here to find out why
OK, almost speechless. The dog pooped himself, but he loved riding on the roof??And, what say we believe him, and the dog DID like it.
Kids would like having Gummiworms for every meal.
Do we let them?Loon.

CALL 911

We get liverwurst EVERY night after our last out.
I heard the humans say we're out.
Someone better do something, quick, or I"m gonna eat a sofa.
What a sucky night. No liverwurst, and thunderstorms.
They gave me some pill and they think that's gonna make me like the storm.
Like melatonin is gonna make up for storms with NO LIVERWURST.
A pouting Sasha


The human guy went to WaWa and got us liverwurst. The sofa is safe for another day...

They're making me HIKE?

So the humans do this rescue stuff.
Fine, I guess. I came from a shelter.
It does take up a lot of their time that should be spent adoring me, but whatever.
Now, apparently, they're making me HIKE a MILE to raise money for the foster dogs.
There better not be any mud, that's all I have to say. I will not allow my paws to get dirty. The humans'll have to pull me in a wagon if it's muddy. And there BETTER be some good treats at this "hike" thing.
I know I always complain that Isis gets to go to more events than I do, but I didn't mean I should have to hike.
So if you want to sponsor me, you can paypal any amount to
Be sure to say what it's for.
Apparently there are 3 rescues doing this "hike" nonsense.
Along with Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue, there is Mapaw Siberian Husky Rescue and Referral (they have a blog, too) and Delaware Valley Siberian Husky Rescue.
There will be more information about this whole thing as it gets closer.
And you can keep an eye on the rescue website that Meeshka's human woman works on.

Sasha, queen of Sashaville, who better not get her paws dirty

The horror never ends

Can someone call the SPCA? I shouldn't have to live like this.

Sasha, not happy.

My life sucks

Look at what I have to do to keep my bones away from Isis and Ray.


I'm testing to see if I screwed up the entire blog playing with html.
In the meantime, you can enjoy me in the snow.

Gomer and Opie's blog

Gomer and Opie's human mom is offering to donate money to animal shelters.
If you go to their site, she will donate 10 cents to a shelter.
Believe it or not, I came from a shelter. Definitely not fitting for the Queen of Sashaville, but yes, it happened.
So I think it's a good cause.
Visit their blog at and spread the word.
Now I need to figure out how to get the human mom to collect for the chicken jerky fund, as we appear to be all out....

Isis, the interloper

Yeah, yeah, I know, she's been here 4 years, she's not going anywhere.
I don't have to like it.
I have Ray well trained. He doesn't get up on any furniture, he doesn't take my toys or treats. If he steps on me, I bite him, so he doesn't do that either.
I've also trained the foster dogs not to get on my furniture, or otherwise irritate me.
Then Isis came along.
Just LOOK at her, all over my furniture. I give her dirty looks and alien face, she doesn't care.

And then, look at her on my sofa!
Sofa girls

Clearly, I need to reiterate the Sashaville rules.

Fun with humans

What's the point of having humans around if you don't abuse them?
This morning I did one of my favorites.
The human guy was sleeping, human woman was in the shower.
So I went to the human guy and clawed and did the I-have-to-pee dance. HURRY HURRY, with claws and stomping and everything, and ran downstairs.
By the time he staggered down to let me out, I was already asleep on the sofa.
Then, there's the steal the human's spot on the sofa as soon as they get up.
That's a good one. It helps if you curl up and look cute, so they don't try to heave you off.
Then there's the sleep-by-the-toilet. THAT irritates the humans every time.
I'll have more advice coming up. Right now, it's my naptime.

Welcome to Sashaville

Meeshka has been telling me I need to start a blog, so here I am.
I am Sasha. I am a Siberian Husky.
My job is to rule Sashaville. Pretty much, wherever I am is Sashaville.
However, my main subjects live in my house with me.
Besides myself, there is Ray Charles. He's older and creakier than me, and he is blind. So I can pretty much boss him around pretty good.
Then there's Isis. She is an interloper who was only supposed to stay a short while, then find a home. That was over 4 years ago, so I guess she's not going anywhere.
I boss her around too.
I also have the human people who live here. They feed us (never enough) let us in and out, pet me when I demand it, and otherwise get in my way.
I do have them handily trained to give me liverwurst treats, so they are somewhat helpful.
My main goal in life is to abuse the other dogs I live with, and drive the humans crazy.
The humans really spend an overwhelming amount of time doing this "rescue" stuff.
I guess it's OK, and sometimes other dogs come and live here for a bit, that I get to boss around. Meeshka's human does the website for them:
Anyway, that's it for now. Feel free to bask in my beauty for a while.
