My Trip to the Event

Well everyone, I actually did go out all day to an event yesterday! Of course, when the human woman said "let's go to an event" I was expecting more of an indoor, air conditioned nice place, and not an outdoor event where it was approximately 600 degrees with 1,500% humidity. It was HOT there!

I was very helpful setting up the event gear, every time the human woman walked one way, I walked another, then I tried to crawl under the table and drag the human woman with me, or I'd wrap the leash around her legs and trip her. She kept mumbling, so I guess I was doing a good job.

I got to meet a lot of dogs, big dogs, little dogs, strange looking dogs. All of the humans just oohed and aahed over me and couldn't resist my fluffiness. They all said how incredibly soft my fluffiness was and how well behaved I am (see, the human woman is such a liar saying all those things about me). The human woman tried to put the donation vets on me, but since I was wearing my ultra husky-escape-proof harness, it didn't fit right. The human woman claims it was because I'm just too fluffy and it didn't fit right... well I am very fluffy but frankly who wants to wear a vest when you are so fluffy and its 8,000 degrees outside? Indy came mid-event and his human woman threw the vest on him... hehehe.

For lunch I had pizza crust, which was very tasty. The human woman tried to get me to eat some vile dog cookies that she bought for me, and the nice guy Matt, who I like to kiss, bought me something called "beef ice cream". Ok, can I tell you just how vile and disgusting that was? Nasty, I have no idea who made that stuff, but every dog that came by would tell me "hey, avoid that beef ice cream crap, its vile", and sure enough, it truly was some nasty stuff.

At one point, the human woman was talking to someone and the event people announced the contest to determine the fluffiest dog. Are you kidding me? Of course I was a shoe in for winner in that category and I woo'd and stomped my delicate tiny feet and even clawed the human woman to immediately take me over to the contest ring so that I could saunter up and simply take the prize. They would take one look at me and announce that I was the fluffiest dog in the land... but she IGNORED ME! I don't know who won, but they wouldn't have stood a chance if the judges had gotten a look at me.

Around closing time it got so hot that Indy and I decided we'd splash around in the water bowl to cool off, then lay in the shade together. We both went on strike, refused to stand up and look fluffy, and yet people still came by to pet us.

When I got home the mutatoes were oh so jealous and sniffed me all over. They wanted to play, they were so happy that I was back, but frankly after all that heat and excitement, I just wanted to nap on my air conditioner vent.

Oh, and for all of you humans that claim that huskies don't make good guard dogs, well I scoff at you and submit this picture as evidence of our keen guarding skills. I dare anyone to try to move a tired, hot, sleepy husky off the cash box.

It didn't make for a very comfortable pillow, but what's a girl to do when her human woman refused to lay down and allow me to use her lap as a pillow.

(still recovering from my fun, hot event)

Wooos and a-Roos, Meeshka,
Of course you would have won the fluffiest event! Your human was a Bad Girl not to take you over. Of course, nmaybe they had a silly rule about dog-volunteeers such as yourself not being eligible for any prizes, or something stupid like that.
Thanks for the warning about beef ice cream. It sounds kind of gross, but I might have tried it anyway if someone offered it to me.

Hm, I'll bet Jack would eat that stuff....Oh Ja--ack!

Looks like you represented us fluffy ones well. Too bad about the heat though! Great guarding skills!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

Meeshka, you did a great job at guarding! And you look so fluffy! Great job! My mom wants to know what kind of harness you are wearing.. she seems to think we need them!

Hey Meeshka! Great job guarding the cash box. Who started that nasty rumor about Sibes and not being guard dogs, anyway? Probably a Labrador or something.
Hey ... our mom doesn't have an iPhone because she is so slow technologically that she would spend FOREVER trying to figure it out. So I forbade her from having one. Seemed quite simple. I think you should destroy the one your human has. Just because.
I love the picture of you & Indy on the foster dogs blog!
Tail wags,

Wow, you look so fluffy and, and tired. It sounds like it was fun though. Beef ice cream?? I am not going to even think about how gross that sounds.

Bama said...

Wooo Your Highness,
It sounds like you really put your best paw forward and took one for the team! All that heat & hoomidity, No Gold Medal for being the fluffiest in the land?, BEEF ICE CREAM?, Good DOG, it sounds like woo had a hard day (actually it sounds like you were in Florida! howroorooroo). Good thing that AC vent was all cooled down & ready for you when you got home! At least you got out of wearing the stoopid vest! And you did a grrrreat job guarding that cashbox.

Wow Meeshka, I can't believe your human didn't enter you in the fluffy contest! I can sure tell by that picture that you ARE the fluffiest! That beef ice cream sounds disgusting! Beef, yummy, ice cream, yummy, together? Yuck!

Good job guarding the cash box! I can't believe your human woman didn't get on the ground and let you lay on her! How rude!


Tucker said...

Beef ice cream? It sounds good.... I'll insist that the Human Assistant buy some so I can see what it's so bad.

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Oh Queen Fluffy Meeshka, the most beautiful of all... I am so sorry that your human apparently had better things to do other than put you in the fluffiest contest. I really don't think that was fair to you or the judges, ha roo! I love the photo of you on the cash box. You are soooooo good!

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

Meeshka, you are fluffiest in our hearts!

The Husky in the Window said...

Oh Meeshka, I love how you guarded the cash box with your fluffiness. Even if you didn't wear the vest, you still helped too! You definitely would have won the fluffy contest. You have to get her to enter you in that next time.
Husky Hugs, MayaMarie

Hey Meeshka - Echo here. I think your fluffiness is quite bewootiful. I usually love Meet and Greets although Dad sometimes becomes a tad annoyed with Meeka and I when we get bored. We tend to turn our backs to all of our admirers and he says that's very rude. I hope it's okay to add your Blog to my Favorites list!
