Defeating Barriers



The humans try all sorts of pathetic things to keep us out of places where they don't want us.

From doors (which are USUALLY effective due to our lack of oposable thumbs), to gates, and sometimes even furniture, they throw anything and everything in our path to keep us from investigating, or even going places that are rightfully ours.

This picture was sent to me by Sgt Zim of the Army of Four. The humans were trying to clean the upstairs for guests and didn't want their huskies to "mess it up".



There is the husky rule that states: "If any pre-inspected room has been altered in any way, or if a place is created that has not been inspected by huskies, it must be inspected by huskies and approved for husky use".

Since a pre-inspected room had been altered, it was Zim and Dave's responsibility to inspect, but the humans placed a piece of furniture in their way. Being good huskies, this did not deter them for one second, and a way around (or over) was found, inspection was completed, fur was placed to mark the inspection sites.

I applaude Sgt Zim and Dave's initiative, but I'm also a little confused as to why there were three stuffed things on the barrier. It is my feeling that they should have been shredded and possibly eaten prior to the arrival of the human guests in order to cause even more chaos and a trip to the emergency vet.

I am only assuming that they have a plan for the stuffed things, and total chaos would not be achieved at the time this picture was taken. I do expect a picture of the remains and a description of the chaos it caused once that plan has been put into action.

Meeshka,

We noticed that your humans have a photo with the caption "The gate at the bottom of the deck stairs to keep the pups from running up and down them." What's up with that?

I like to play the game of "bite the human's butt," "snap female human's bra strap," and "shout 'HA!' in the human's ear."

Humans don't have a very good sense of humor.
