Kaija's Diary

Nickname? "Bunny" or "Foo Foo"

When I put the first photo of Kaija on facebook, someone wrote,"Look at those bunny ears, she can't be purebred". Score one for "bunny" Kaija! Later I was told, "don't worry, she'll grow into those ears." When we visited Marilyn, Kaija headed out to her yard to play with another dog. She first ran circles around the yard at high speed. On the second or third turn around the yard, Kaija began leaping into the air like a bunny. Kaija's movements were light and effortless and her jumps were astounding. Score two for "bunny" Kaija. Marilyn recounted a story to me of two of her huskies. They were out in the yard playing and running when Marilyn happened to look out the window just in time to see two white husky butts bounding over the fence in one great leap! The very thought of that sent panic through me, "Oh, God, please don't let anyone tell Kaija how easily she could jump a fence with those husky bunny jumps of hers!
So, on a long lead next to my desk, Kaija is learning to like cats... a must since we have five of them! Most of the cats keep their distance and look askance at Kaija. But, my half Bengal, Cami, has inherited the peaceable and dog friendly nature of the Bengal. She purposely walks through Kaija's lead reach and even purrs and throws herself down in front of Kaija. Kaija responds by leaping over Cami and gently bopping her with her nose. Score one for the nickname "Foo Foo"... and, while my kids tell me the Bunny Foo Foo poem is a bit "negative" on the image; it totally fits the mischievous, not too obedient nature of the husky!
I wonder, which will stick for her nickname: Bunny or Foo Foo?!

Little husky Bunny
Hopping through the living room
Jumping on the house cats
And bopping them on the head
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said
"Little husky Bunny
I don't want to see you
Jumping on the house cats
And bopping them on the head.
I will give you three chances,
And if you don't behave, I will turn you into a Foo Foo!"

"Little husky Foo Foo
Hopping through the living room
Jumping on the house cats
And bopping them on the head
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said:
"Little husky Foo Foo
I don't wanna see you
Jumping on the house cats
And bopping them on the head."
I will give you three more chances,
And if you don't behave, I will turn you into a Goon!"

"Little husky Goon Goon
Hopping through the living room
Jumping on the house cats
And bopping them on the head
Down came the Good Fairy, and she said:
"Little husky Goon Goon
I don't wanna see you
Jumping on the house cats
And bopping them on the head."
Now you've had so many chances,
And, you still won't behave...

The moral of the story is: Little husky Bunnies
Are like the bunny Foo Foo...
They are looking our for fun and won't always listen to you!
