Nicknames: Kubbi, Kubs, Kubcake, Bud, Moosums, Bubba, Ali Baba & The Band of Seven Thieves, and Visa (I was everywhere you wanted to be!).
Birthday: May 27th 1999
Likes: FOOD (except black olives and pickles) and BEACHES and KIDS, especially boisterous boys who love to play, and BABIES and BIG PEOPLE, and SNOW and belly rubs and ear swizzles and singing to sirens and chasing squirrels and going for rides with my grandpa.
Pet-Peeves: I hated camping! ;>( And a pox on all vacuum cleaners of the world, too! Did I mention cats?
Favorite Toy: KIDS! I loved to play with kids! Oh, they're not toys? Okay then, my football. It didn't even have air in it any more, but I loved my football! Inside, I liked Mr. Monkey, but I sort of wore out his ears and kept hoping they'd grow back..
Favorite Food: Steal-a-meals! I "requisitioned" everything from loaves of bread to a pizza that was still in the box to a whole meatloaf that my grampy made ~ YUM! Do you suppose this might have had something to do with that "Ali Baba" nickname?
Favorite Walk: Beaches! When I got within snuffling distance of a beach, I got so excited that I'd just wooooooooooooooooooooo until we get there! Beaches were the BEST!
Best Tricks: "Kubbi, dig clam!" was my favorite because when we got back home I could help my Grampa eat the clam chowder. I turned doorknobs, opened drawers, climbed ladders, and escaped crates, too. The fridge door kept me stumped, though, so I still had goals.
Arrival Story: I was rescued by my auntie Linda Smith of Ohio Alaskan Malamute Rescue way back when I was a little guy and then I was sponsored by Alaskan Malamute Rescue of New England so I could live in Maine. (If you live in New England and love Malamutes, you can see beautiful Mals who need forever homes at www.amrone.org) I had a long car ride home to Maine and listened to my humans reading an Inuit dictionary to find words with nice sounds and meanings for a name for me. I don't know why, but after walking my humans for two days I got named after a tractor instead! I loved Maine because it has lots and lots of beaches! Thank you, Auntie Linda & Auntie Susan! Awrooooo wroooooo wrooooooooooo!

I got to live in Nova Scotia part-time, too, where there were more beaches and more friends who loved me very much.
