Humans Are So Stupid!
We thought this Happy Bunny kind of summed it up for him. That's just crazy, we are not even from the wolf family. So Mom was quick to get on the Internet upon her return & printed off lots of information about our breed, highlighted the controversial points & mailed it on to her Dad, we'll be curious to see the outcome. Mom said she doesn't really care if he ever comes back to our house if that's how he feels about us! Sure he plays all nice to our face but now we see how it really is! See if he gets any of our sweet woooos next time he comes.
Moving right along to the lady down the street(our little friend Maggies Mom), whom we used to like a lot, until this happened, she banned us from her backyard! Can you believe it?! All because they have this wonderful pond that we like to lay in. OK, so we tend to mess the filter up a little when we get in, but is that any reason to ban us, we think NOT! For almost a year now, on our morning walk, we stop down at Maggies house cause her yard is even bigger than ours & all fenced in. Well, after running like crazy for a few minutes we like to cool off in their nice big fish pond. So Monday we went to go back in Maggies yard & out comes her Mom saying that we can go back there but we can't get in the pond anymore. Our Mom has tried to keep us out of it, but come on, we are Huskies ya know, so we tend to ignore her when she tells us to get out. Now all we get to do is stand in the tiny front yard, on our leashes & try to play, it really doesn't work very well as we're sure you pups can imagine. Today we didn't even go to Maggies, our Mom took us down to the river instead cause it's just so hot here.
Lastly is our Mom's PaPa, again, we used to like him a lot, but our parents are going to visit him over Labor Day & come to find out, we're not welcome. What is the deal here, we're starting to see a pattern, apparently these humans don't know superior dogs when they meet them. We even told our Mom we would go & just stay in the basement, but nooooooo, CATS we say! We can't figure out why she would want to go somewhere that we're not wanted, but as we said in the beginning, some humans are so stupid!
The only good part about this weekend is that our true human friends, Beth & her boy Bobby, are going to come & stay with us. We sure love us some Bobby, he runs & giggles & we chase & maul him (in a fun way, not a face ripping off sort of way). He's the biped that we've posted pictures of putting him in our crate before. So it won't be all bad. Plus Beth knows how to cook our meals for us like Mom does & we heard her tell our Mom that she was going to stop at our favorite doggy bakery before she comes, woohoooo, Mom who?! Haroooo, just kidding, we'll miss her but at least we won't have to go to one of those dog jail places while they're gone.
Well, we better run for now, woo at you all later, M&M

M&M's Very Angry Mom!
"But this is the same media scrutiny that all celebrities get. Paris Hilton was skewered by the media during her court proceedings. Do you think Vick is being treated differently because he's black?I think part of it is his celebrity status, but I think it's racially influenced as well. Obviously celebrities are scrutinized, but he has attracted scrutiny prior to this case for no other reason than because of his "thuggish" image. That persona may have turned some people off, and when people see that they assume you've done something wrong. He's definitely getting attention because of his celebrity, but in terms of people's judgment of his guilt, that's essentially racial profiling. He's been completely vilified. I haven't heard one commentator come to Vick's defense, even to play devil's advocate".
I think this type of media is what really drives me to the brink of insanity! This case sooo doesn't have anything to do with the fact that the man is black. It has to do with him being a very sick individual. The NAACP is always so quick to jump on "racial profiling" instead of just taking things the way they are, he's sick! A White, Mexican, Chinese or any other race of people would get the same public outcry that Vick is receiving for such cruel acts. It's almost like their way of trying to detour us from the case at hand by making it a racial thing. Bottom line is the man tortures what should be pets for pleasure. It may disturb me more that he says he didn't take any money for the wins "In his written plea filed last week, Vick admitted helping kill six to eight pit bulls and supplying money for gambling on the fights. He said he did not personally place any bets or share in any winnings."(which we all know is a lie) so that would mean he did this out of pure sickness. Note he admits to helping to kill 6 to 8 of these animals. Now he wants to apologize, I'll bet he does, given he's looking at not only the end of his career but up to 6 years in federal prison. I'd apologize too! I really believe this is Vick just showing his true colors, he was a thug before coming to football & now he's just a thug with lots of money. The NAACP makes a point to bring up his "thuggish image", hey walks like a duck talks like a duck, I say. People who are not thugs don't make a point to represent themselves as such.
I am an advocate of animals, they're kind of like small children, very innocent & unable to protect themselves, they look to us to be their caregivers, not to fight them to the death, or torture them when they don't win! I hope you all will join me in praying for Vick to get the maximum sentence out of all of this. He should be an used as an example for all the dogfighters out there, a lot of our children looked up to this man as a professional athlete & he needs to be held accountable for his actions. At least, maybe then, not all of those poor animals will have died in vain, if there can be some sort of retribution towards even one of the villains in this very sick sport!
The pups will return with happier thoughts soon, I have to admit, I've become a little obsessed with this all. To the point of bad dreams & the whole 9 yards. My mind just can't process how some humans can be so very sick, the things that are done to these animals are truly unthinkable in a "normal" mind. I've started another blog elsewhere to get these issues out but just had to post my thoughts here as well knowing the outrage that you all must be feeling too. I've always kept this blog a very happy & positive place so I won't continue to rant here about this, I just hope that justice will be served upon this man as well as all the others out there like him. Thanks for listening! M&M's Mom
