Its All About The Human Woman

Hey everyhusky, dog, and girl-girl,

Apologies again not only for disappearing for an entire week, but the delay in getting the rest of the blogathon prizes out to the winners. I thank you for your patience and understanding, as I’ve been concentrating all of my fluffiness on the human woman.

For all of my complaints about her, she is a vital cog in the wheel of my care and feeding, and sometimes she needs some of my fluffiness to get over a rough patch and frankly these past few weeks have been a bit bumpy for her. I simply can’t claw the human woman when she’s down, and at this point, she’d probably have to reach up in order to feel down.

If you recall in April (of the human calendar) she was unable to transcribe my words of wisdom because of a hand problem and I had cartooned some suggestions on what happened to the hand. At that time I was unable to actually say what happened because of a human court case that was coming up.

In a nutshell, almost three years ago the human woman was driving to work and was hit nearly head on by a car, which actually hit two other cars before hitting the human woman. The car that hit her was completely at fault. The driver was found guilty in traffic court and had the book thrown at her (which probably hurts, since I’ve had books fall on me while I was trying to get a kleenex off a desk once).

The human woman has been battling the guilty driver’s insurance company not only for her totaled car (which was a nice ride), but for injuries to her hand. She’s had to leave us locked up for doctor appointments, had surgery in April, is in physical therapy, and may need more surgery.

This week we were locked up in our cages all day without lunch for two days because she and the human man were in court both days. The driver lied on the stand and said it wasn’t her fault because her tire exploded. Three eye witnesses said that didn’t happen. The police officer at the scene said that was highly unlikely and when he asked her at the scene what happened, she said she didn’t know.

The jury was instructed that if they bought her story, then she wasn’t responsible for the human woman’s injuries. The human woman had to prove that she paid money for a prescription for pain relievers because of the accident, but the driver didn’t have to prove that her tire blew.

Needless to say, the jury of lazy humans got the case at 4:15pm and at 5pm on the nose came back and said the driver wasn’t at fault, have a nice day.

She’s pretty much been curled up in a ball under the bed worrying if her insurance will cover the problems with her hand, whether she’ll lose her job if she can’t type (and frighteningly if she can’t transcribe my blogs), and how the human justice system can allow this to happen. Since I’m not normally allowed under the bed, I’m curled up under there with her to comfort her with my fluffiness.

When I become Queen of the World, all cars will be banned, all stupid people will be thrown on an island where they can’t hurt good humans, all lawyers that represented insurance companies will be clawed on a daily basis, and all insurance companies will pay for everyhusky (dog and girl-girl) needs from their stacks and stacks of money they ripped off from good humans.

(nobody screws with my human woman)

Kapp pack said... amazing for you and your human woman to have remained in such good humor through these tough times. All our thoughts go out to you. Meeshka, do what you can to make your human woman feel better. It's amazing what red-headed fluffiness can do to help a humans mood. Can your human woman appeal the ruling?

Wooo Woooo (that really sucks),

Wooo-ow, that does suck.

My human man says things like this happen because pretty soon the entire solar system is going to zing around its orbit in the far end of the galaxy & the magnetic pole will change, and people are going crazy because they have a deep inner sense that the end is near.

Personally, I think humans are pretty stupid overall, and this is just one more example.

Wooos of sympathy to your human woman. No wonder she lives in sleepy pants. Very decent of you to comfort her with your fluffiness.

Meeshka, My Mom says she is really really sorry to hear about this! This is realy awful. Momsays stoo he will pray for your human woman. You will have to keep us posted. Please lay next to her (not on her) and give her lots of licks and kisses. They like that.

Turbo the Sibe said...

The justice system is stupid. That's all there is to it.

Opy - the Original GruffPuppy said...

Ohh Meeshka - that is just awful for your human woman :-( I know that you give her a hard time, but I also know underneath all your tough fluff - that you love her heaps. Please look after her - she needs lots of hugs.

From my end, how about Charlie and I send you some parcels of big, steaming, fresh poop ? One for the judge, one for the jury, one for the insurance company - and an extra big one for the horrible lying woman who caused your mum so much grief ? I am sure it will help.

Take care buddy.

Be good to her, Meeshka. Not too good, but pretty good.

My Human Assistant says he knows about these things. Driver screws up. Permanent injury. Legal system screws up. Friends ask why in dog's name you couldn't get money from driver.

It's big-time stinko and they need us more when these things happen. It doesn't seem like it when she puts you in your crate more and leaves. But when she's home be sure to give her lovings and also do things to make her laugh.

Tell your human woman that we are sending some face licks her way.

Holly said...

I agree with Opy. Go for a late night walk and poo all over that nasty lady's yard!


Dakota said...

I'm with Opy and Holly. I will contribute if necessary. I'll get Bandit to help too. His are really big and really stinky. That should get the point across.


Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Oh Opy has a great idea!!! I am sorry for your mom's stuff that she has going on. Sounds like to me the jury didn't want to stay past 5 and make a decision without reviewing the evidence. Sounds like if she plead guilty, then she should have been found guilty on all accounts. Meeshka.. give your mom some good loving!

Charlie said...

That just stinks! WOOF!!
