New HULA Members: Steve and Kat

Dear HULA Queen Meeshka,
We are very young huskies, only 10 weeks old, but already the comments on our blog have told us that we are perfect for HULA membership. So here is our formal membership request. We are also requesting membership for our older brother, Wilbur, because he’s the most dog-like cat to ever live and had began plots of world domination way before we joined the family. We are sure that he will only help you in your world domination mastermind plots, even though he is a cat and cats are generally mortal enemies. So here are our qualifications.

1. Demonstrating disruptive behavior - To be honest, so far we haven't been that disruptive except for our resistance to housebreaking and the fact that we are barking at each other or biting each other or wrestling each other constantly. Mom and Dad think this is quite disruptive. We think this is normal. We're sending a picture of us in mid-wrestle.

2. Cause your human to freak out for no real reason - Kat did this well when she fell while we were wrestling. She hit her head and acted all dazed which caused Mom to carry her around for like 30 minutes until Dad got there. At that point she just snapped out of it because she was ready to play again. Read all about it here.

3. Cause human guilt for no reason, other than to get attention or treats - This is an easy one. When you're as cute and fluffy as we are, all you have to do is sit and stare at any human and they will shower you with attention or treats. Like if they are yelling "no" too much, then just sit and stare at them and the loving will start. Automatically. It's amazing how easy it is.

4. Destroy something - We've already got some good holes started in the back yard and we've ripped up one of the bushes as well as eaten the label off the propane tank for the grill and chewed the starter for the grill off.

5. Human behavior modification - Does it count that now Mom and Dad don't ever get to sleep a full night because we have to be taken out to go to the bathroom? How about that we always wake up at 5:45 AM wanting food? What about the fact that when they get back from work their real work begins because they never know when we will decide to go to the bathroom in the house? So they never get to watch TV anymore. Dad has a new Xbox 360 that he has barely played due to the fact that we have to be monitored constantly. This is significant behavior modification from what we've heard about their previous existence.

6. Being dressed up as something for the humor of the humans - Mom put these silly Santa things around our necks. They had jingle bells on the ends. We thought they were chew toys, but she didn't think so. Attached is a picture of Steve showing his hatred of the Santa collar.

7. Love of kleenex - We just discovered what kleenex was last week when our mom was sick. They were all over the place and Steve especially thought they were tasty. Unfortunately Mom saw him eating it and pried his jaws open to get it out. The downside of being a puppy is that Mom is still strong enough to pry our jaws open.

Your humble Husky soldiers,
Steve and Kat

P.S. Please wish your brother a big "GET WELL SOON!" from us.

(Welcome to the HULA Hoop... sorry, no cats, unless you have pictures of their destruction - Meeshka)
