Congratulations Dakota!

Dakota correctly answered that HTHNBR currently has three American Eskimo dogs in foster care... but actually that may be changing, as all three are on their way out to a possible adoption, so everyone have good thoughts that Casey, Oliver, or Snowie (or maybe all three?) find a fur-ever home today.

Eskies are kinda hard to adopt out to someone that doesn’t know how they are. They really don’t like strangers at all, and it takes a little bit for them to consider someone their friend and no longer a stranger. Unlike huskies and Mals who usually walk into a potential adopter’s home and make themselves comfy and treat the potential adopter like a long lost friend, Eskies are a bit standoffish at first until they get to know someone, then they’re attached to that person’s lap like velcro.

So, if you happen to know someone that is interested in an Eskie, tell them not to judge their friendliness right off the bat, its not that the pup doesn’t like them... it just doesn’t know you well enough, but that will change quickly once they realize you are their friend.

And that’s your Eskie lesson of the day. I’ll let you know what happens on the adoption as soon as the human woman finds out.

Just a quick note: the gimpy suck up mutatoe is sleeping on the now incredibly nasty lime green shirt again. Earlier this morning the human woman let me and the mutatoe out, but Sam didn’t follow us. Apparently she came back into the room, and there Sam was, sitting and patiently waiting. She had rolled the chair onto the tip of his tail and he was trapped and couldn’t get up. She felt really bad (as she should) and apologized profusely to the spineless bionic hip pup, and he milked it for all it was worth. Now whenever she rolls the chair back he leaps up and freaks out... just to make her feel even more guilty.

(I would have screamed like a banshee had she done that to me, I like the drama)

Will Sammy now have a bionic tail too?
Hey - he could costar in the new Bionic Woman movie.

I'm beginning to think The Mom watches waaaaayyyy too many movies..........

I also enjoyed the Eskie Lesson - we don't need to learn how to be Velcro - we do that naturally -

As for the sound of the banshee - my hu-mom kinda has a dog named Banshey - Bansh lives with another hu-person

I haven't met Banshey yet but I sooooo want to!

Keep the words a woo'ing

Those of us with Belgian DNA are also known to be velcro.

Dad is tired of being the only guy in the house so he requested that the next family member to be a boy. According to my breeder, the males are suppose to be even "more Velcro-like" than the females. That really scares Dad since I have to always be touching him.

Hi Meeshka. Yep, that is exactly how us eskies behave. I hope your 3 eskie friends find a good furever home!

Oh, and congrats on starting the blogathon!
