Having lived with many great dogs (and a couple of cats), I just orded this book by Eckhart Tolle. The few pages I can see on the Amazon preview look great. It looks to be more about “mindfulness” and “spirituality” than “religion,” which suits me well. I’m looking forward to it.
If you’ve ever had a Siberian Husky, you’ll probably find that these drawings and captions are accurate. (Image from snowdog.guru.)
Here’s a link to the Denali National Park sled dog puppy cam.
There are many nice cartoons/illustrations in Eckhart Tolle’s book Guardians of Being: Spiritual Teachings from Our Dogs and Cats, and this “Shtop Thinking” cartoon is one of my current favorites. (The book is a collaborative effort between Mr. Tolle and Patrick McDonnell, artist/illustrator/cartoonist who may be most well known for his “Mutts” cartoons.)
I was listening to Must Love Dogs while driving yesterday (I’ve watched it so many times, I don’t need to see it to know what’s going on), and it reminded me that when I write about dogs in my books — Rocky, Zeus, Suka, etc. — these are some of the Siberian Huskies I’m writing about.
While I’m sharing photos of Siberian Huskies I’ve known and loved, here’s one of Rocky working on a bone. My wife originally found him stuck in a cinder block in Virginia when he was probably about 18” long, and he became the first husky we’d know. He became famous for destroying furniture, howling, and running around saying words like “Oprah” and “Geraldo.”
One of my nieces (and/or her friends) seems to be interested in Siberian Huskies, which last night led me to dig out this old photo from a business newspaper in Louisville, Kentucky, in April, 2004.
“The dogs have just returned from 10 days of breaking trail to Toklat and back.”

This is a cartoon about “What a husky hears,” from the Dogs of C-Kennel comic. Having known six huskies very well, I can confirm the accuracy of this comic.
If you know me, you know about Zeus, a rescue dog who came back from a very bad place. As a result of a few friendships I know a few people who would like this t-shirt. The iheartdogs.com website says that sales of this t-shirt help to feed seven shelter dogs (at first I thought that was seven shelters) through their partnership with Rescue Bank. If you like the Rescue Bank mission you can skip the t-shirt and go right to the Rescue Bank donation page.
