here to bring you a special message, see these black dots down here, these are Geese, they come to our river by the hundreds.
The river is directly across from our house (it's where I like to go when ever I'm able to "escape"). The message I would like to share is, DO NOT CHASE GEESE INTO THE RIVER! They may look like they'd be fun to catch but just let me tell you from experience, it will NEVER happen!
Let me back up just a tad. This last summer, Mom was half awake when we were getting ready for our morning walk & didn't have a very good hold on my leash, me being the "Thrill Seeker" that I am, seized the moment & made a break for the half shut screen door. Before she knew what was happening, I had broke free & was on the move. I went straight for the river. I could hear Mom & Macie
calling for me but I knew this was my big chance at getting one of these dang geese that drive me crazy with all their honking & splashing. So of course I ignored Mom's frantic shrieking & headed into the river after them, bad plan! She figured out real quick from all the geese screams where I was, yep, in the river swimming for all I was worth after a whole flock of them. I was so close to getting them I could taste the feathers, then I realized how far away I was from the shore, way out past that last line of geese you can see in this picture. Now the panic set in, I turned around to start swimming back to the bank & suddenly got really tired. So tired all I could to was smack at the water, my short little life was flashing before me. Next thing I know, my Mom was grabbing me around my tummy & dragging me through the water to the shore. Cats was I tired! I thought I was headed to the Rainbow Bridge for sure. Moral of the story, Geese are wicked evil & all dogs should stay away from them! One of Mom's hunter friends told her that that's what Geese do is lure things out in the water far enough until they drowned, I can contest to that being a fact now!
On a lighter note, here are a few pictures of me & Macie
this winter in the snow.Macie
made me post this one of her with snow on her nose. We don't get the official "Snow Noses" like some of you Huskies so Macie
thought she'd make herself one, she's so silly!
Here I am looking all handsome & fluffy.
Well, that's it for now. Next time we'll have to share some pictures of our newest friend, Manny.
remember, Geese are NOT chicken & they ARE EVIL!
Harooo everypup & GG! We left off with wanting to woo to you all about our terrible experience at SuperPets.
So there we were, minding our own business trying to help our Mom find us a new dog food (Nutro has discontinued our lamb & rice for large breed dogs), she was talking with one of the people that work there when up comes this lady with her Malamute. We all sniff each other & say our harooos (he was quite handsome!) our Mom is telling the lady how pretty her dog is & asks if he's still a puppy(he was very "short" for his breed). Note: the mean lady will be represented by purple & our Mom in green.
"No he's 18 months, but is EXACTLY breed standard"
"Oh , I just always assumed that Malamutes were taller".
"Well what are those supposed to be?!" Meaning us.
"They are Siberian Huskies".
"I don't think so, not that one at least. (pointing at Malechai) Anyone that knows anything about dogs can tell that's not a full blooded Husky, they don't get that big"
"I beg to differ with you, according to his papers, he's full blooded, he's just larger than breed standard"
"Papers don't mean anything & if you paid anything for him, you paid too much! That one (pointing at Macie) is a Husky but there's no way this one is."
"That's funny since they're brother & sister!"
"There's no way these are litter mates!" (come on now, you all have seen us, we're almost twins) At this point, even us dogs can tell things are about to get ugly. Truly, our lady is NOT a trouble maker, but was ready to teach this human some manners. Thank dog the man that worked there stepped in & asked that other lady(if you can call her that) to leave (there were other words exchanged but we don't think they should be repeated). Upon doing so, our Mom offered to go out in the parking lot, kick her mean, you know what, & take her dog, (we would've liked that, as we said he was very handsome). If a human is that mean to other humans, we can only imagine that her dog doesn't get treated right either, plus when she stormed out, she yanked him around so fast that he flipped over. Of course Mom didn't lower herself to that level, all though, if we were the biting kind, we woulda bit her right in her caboose on her way out, stupid, stupid, mean human!So there you have it, according to the "know it all" at SuperPets, Malechai is a mutt & we are not brother & sister. Not that it would matter to our Mom if all this was true, it was just the nerve of that woman, first she butted into our Mom's conversation with the employee & then basically tried to pick a fight with us. We just don't get some humans. Well, there's our story for the afternoon, can you pups believe it, geesh!
Until next time, watch out for stupid, Husky hatin' humans, there out there ya know......M&M
