This Is All We Need

Its bad enough that the human woman tells all of her human friends on various and sundry mail lists that I claw her all the time and won’t let her sleep in, and make her take me out, then in, then out, then in, then out (etc.) and give me a horrible reputation for being a pain in the butt, when actually I’m the sweetest, cutest, fluffiest thing there is. I’ve proven that by attending public events and being my normal self, all cute and fluffy, shaking paw when asked, the whole nine yards. This further goes to show what an exaggerator she is about me (take for instance, I’m actually not chewing on her elbow as she transcribes this blog entry).

So, its bad enough that we have a “reputation” based on stupid movies that show us playing poker, or ripping up an entire house (ok, that’s probably close to the truth), but we certainly wouldn’t viciously chase some guy out of the house unless he was strapped with raw meat, and then we’d only go after the raw meat and not attack the guy, we have our priorities you know.

So when I woke up this morning and checked out the latest news, I was horrified to see a review on the Simpsons movie with a picture of Homer being attacked by poorly drawn huskies. Great, now in cartoons we’re being depicted as savage human attacking beasts. Now, I haven’t seen the movie and the cartoon still could be taken out of context, and in actuality in the story they are merely attracted to the donut odor emitting from his body or something, but still.

I’m really offended by this whole stereotyping of northern breed dogs as something they aren’t. That’s like saying that all Hollywood actors and actresses are drunken drivers.... um... ok, how about that’s like saying that all sports figures do really stupid things.... um... crap. Ok, that’s like saying the CEOs of major companies... ok, nevermind.

The most important thing is that we need to have our humans really educate other humans about the different types of breeds that are out there, and their personalities, and to dispel any rumors or untruths about what we do and don’t do, what we do and don’t like.

Speaking of education, if you want a very cute Sammy/Eskie shirt that is pictured here then you’ll be the first to tell me in a blog comment how many American Eskimos are currently available in foster homes at HTHNBR.

(that’s like saying that all human women wear sleepy pants... CRAP, never mind)

Oh Meeshka - you crack me up! I agree, I hate that we are depicted as evil creatures! We really aren't... well the claw does come out every now and again!

The Mom told me yesterday that the Huskies look HORRIBLE on the big screen. She saw a promo when she went to see Hairspray (which she did like!).

Dad went and saw that movie last night. Momma didn't go with because she has "standards".

Loving the posts.

Actually, I think they might be Wolves. Which is just as big a bunch of CRAP too, cuz wolves to NOT attack people. They already have a much worse reputation than Sibes, so I'm sure this will just keep the bad reputation going. heavy sigh.
