Finally, the monster got off the 'puter

Howrrroooo, everyone!
This is Chili, and I finally get a turn to post on OUR blog, Bama's been hogging the 'puter, so anyhusky would think the rest of us don't have anything to say. Well....let me tell you, I have plenty to say! After all, I'm the fluffiest, the oldest, and the bossiest, you'd think the kid would figure out that this SHOULD be MY page, but nooooooo......
I was born in Inverness FL, on Jan. 3, 2004, and mom and dad let Boogie pick which pup out of my litter that he wanted for his 8th birthday present, (of course he chose me, who wouldn't?) They also said that Granddogs Starr & Ice were getting too old and lazy, they needed a pup around here to put 'em back on their toes and give them some stimulation. After they picked me, they went back home to wait for me to be old enough to leave my furmom. On the way they stopped for dinner, and talked about what to name me, MY boy settled on Boogie's Red Hot Chili Pepper. Here is a pic of me the day they brought me home, March 8,2004. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOOGIE BOY!!!:

Have you ever seen anyone cuter? Of course you haven't!
When I got here, I had to convince the granddogs that I was worth keeping around, here's a pic of me letting Starr & Ice think they're putting me in my place. Notice the nasty "astroturf" indoor/outdoor, fake grass looking, green "carpet" in our sunroom? Big Yuck!:


This is my favorite pic, I wanted a kiss from my boy, no matter how far I had to stretch to get it.....

And this is mom's favorite pic of me and my boy:


After I'd been here about 6 months, mom decided that we should tile the sunroom so it would be easier to keep clean for us, and a nice place to hang out when the weather was cool. My skinsister Sam, and her boyfriend at the time laid most of the tile, but they left a 3 ft by 3 ft square in the middle cause mom wanted to do a mosaic design. She said since it was a sunroom, we needed a sun....Well, she'd never done anything like that before, so I decided I better supervise to make sure she didn't mess up our room. Dad took lots of pictures while we worked, what do you think of my job? I didn't even have to bite her once, but I did inspect every piece she placed, and gave my pawprint of approval on the finished work. Here's a pic of us after she got the sun and frame pieces in place, before she glued them down:

And here is one of me inspecting her work close up:

After she got the frame and sun in, I suggested she put in a charcoal gray background to make the sun really stand out (see Dave, I'm pretty good with color and design too, maybe we should team up?):

Mom said "instead of just watching, you COULD help", here is me laughing at her, "yeah right, you expect ME to do physical labor?"

Finally, after she had all the pieces glued down, I chose a glittery gold additive for the grout, so it would sparkle and shine like the real fireball in the sky, here is the finished project. It's a night picture, and it's kind of dark so you can't really see the sparkles, but if I could pat myself on the back I would, it took a lot of patience supervising mom for long enough to get it done. She's looked and looked, but she can't find the daytime shots of it, and since it's night here now, she said I would have to wait to post if I want her to take a new one. No thanks, mom, you're so forgetful that could take furever!:

Anywhoooo, let me know what you think of my work, if your humans need supervision on a tile project I work for treats.....
WooWoos & Playbows,
Chili

Wow is your mom super talented! She did a really great job. And you are good supervisor. Good thing she has you around.
It was fun hearing about you and your boy. Your official name is cool.

Hey-woo, Red Huskies Rule!!!! Being that I am adopted from MAPAW, mommy missed out on my puppyhood. Us big guys need to put the younger fur-balls in there place occasionally! You are so talented by supervising your human family on the sun porch. Mommy says to tell you that the sun tile is awesome. She would like to have a mural of horsey tile in her kitchen, but daddy & mommy don't want to tear apart the kitchen wall to do it right now. Maybe after her jaw surgeries when she feels better.
Til next time,

My mom thinks you were (and are) insanely adorable! That picture of you laughing at the thought of physical labor is GREAT! I mean... why do they call it "MAN"ual labor ... you know? Woo.
You did an outstanding job picking the colors for the sun. You really do have a knack for color! Your mom did a good job, too!
Luv,
Dave, Guide Dog for the Color Blind

Oh Man Chili!!!! We could have used you here last fall when our dad attempted to fix the wall in our shower.....needless to say the tile isn't straight anymore...but I guess we still love him anyway....at least the wall is not rotting anymore :-(

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann
