The Shoplifting Husky

Some of you might have seen the video of the slick shoplifting
husky on my page...well, Monday night on Animal Planet on a
program called Bad Dog, there was an update about that pup. I
believe her name is Kira or Akira. The story from the owners
is that they went on an errand around Christmas and didn't get
Akira the rawhide bone they usually gift her with. Apparently,
she was a bit miffed so she took it upon herself to go to Smith's
and get herself one. Okay, you might say, no biggie, BUT if you
know what she did, it is a BIGGIE.
Akira went to a Smith's she's never been to (I'm not sure if
she's been to any others) that was six, yes six, miles away on
streets she's never been on (apparently she's a roamer, so she's
been on other streets). There are freeways and busy streets on
the route she took to go to that particular Smith's. When she
got there, she entered and went directly to the pet isle and
got what she came for and left...taking (I assume) the same
route (six miles) back home, but this time, with a bone in her
mouth!
When friends saw the news footage, they called Akira's family
and told them they thought the shoplifter was their pup. They
really didn't believe it 'til they saw the footage themselves.
Days later, the whole family, including Akira, went to the scene
of the crime and was let loose, and again, she went straight to
the pet isle and picked up another infamous rawhide bone...but
this time, the family paid for it, and for the one she shoplifted!

Not only is she slick, she's SUPER SMART!!

I think they should try to curb her roaming. She might not
be so lucky on her next trip to Smiths' or to the mall or
to wherever her nose might lead her.

Has anyone read the diary entry of the
Diary of the Day pup? The title is "a
bit sad".
After reading this, all of us should be
a bit sad, actually, alot sad.

Please go visit and consider signing the
petition Jack is talking about.

Those pups in Argentina need our help.

Jolanda, the other Red Cattle Dog, caught up to me and tagged me.
Thanks Red Girl.

1. Do you ever wake your parent up in the night?
In the summer, no, but in the winter sometimes.
I nudge her to let me up on the bed and under the
covers when I get cold.


2. Do you ever tear up things?
Yep. Those stuffed dog toys. There's a need in
me to take the squeaker and the stuffing out. I
gotta do it on the sly when mom isn't around. She
doesn't like 'em to be destroyed.


3. What is your favorite treat?
HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM!!!!! Then everything else!

4. Can you fetch something when asked to do so?
No, no, and no. Mom says I'm about the only
Cattle Dog that doesn't like to fetch.


5. Have you ever lived any place other than where you live now?
Yep. I was born and lived on a reservation 'til I
was about 3 1/2 months old. Then I was rescued.
Hallelujah!

 

Oh The Horror Of It All

Horror of all horrors happened today! Something that
scares me death! Well, almost death.
Water.
Baths.
Don't look at me that way. I'm sure I'm not the only
one that feels like that.

Mom just can't believe that the biggest dog in our pack
is scared of water. Scared of B-A-T-H-S.
Mom, did you ever think that I just enjoy being dirty
and I don't want to lose my flavor - my stank.

Needless to say, I got one. I was the last one to get
the water torture treatment. I was kicking back in my
sanctuary (under the bed) when here comes the vacuuming
queen (mom) with her vacuum cleaner disturbing my
contemplations. She knows that's another thing I cannot
handle. Not at all. Vacuum cleaners = pure evil. When
that thing comes into the bedroom and I happen to be
under that bed, I exit stage left - or right. I just gotta
get the heck outta Dodge, dude!! Sooooo, she innocently
asks me if I wanna go outside while she's vacuuming and
of course, I do. What pup wouldn't? And you know what
she does? She stops vacuuming and comes outside with me
and proceeds to do the bath thing.
I would not stay still.
I moved here and I moved there.
I made it hard for her to bathe me.
But she would not be deterred.

I gotta admit that I needed alot of that dead hair to
come off of me. And boy, did I have alot of it.
Pounds and pounds of it. There's still pounds that need
to be brushed off now. She'll do that tomorrow 'cause
her back was hurting from being bent over washing 5 pups.

After all that I guess she wanted to do more washing
'cause she headed out to take a shower.

 

New And Improved?

About this new dogster.

Yeah, we figured out where (almost) everything
was on the first day either by ourselves or by
reading what others were telling peeps to do.

No problem.

It's just that mom feels dogster has lost it's
"hometown" feeling. You know - like when you
drive into a town or someone drives into your
town and the sign says "Welcome to Dogsterville,
Population-5,623". The "community" happily greets
you.
It's the down to earth, homey, everyone knows
everyone else feeling that's not there anymore.

And we understand it's because it's NEW.
New is sometimes hard to get used to.
New shoes are (most of the time) uncomfortable-
at least for my mom it is.
New baseball/softball gloves are hard to break in.
New glasses are hard to get used to - again, mom.
I think you get my drift.

Eventually . . . you adjust.

But losing something you love is harder to get
used to.

So, for now, my mom is sad 'cause she lost a
familiar friend - the old "homey" dogster.
The one she couldn't wait to get on.

homey: having a feeling of home, comfortable, cozy.
homey, homely, comfortable, welcoming, domestic,
friendly, familiar, cozy, comfy, informal, homespun,
downhome

The new dogster doesn't feel like any of these.
