My Head Poof


The gimpy suck-up mutatoe tooth bonked me a few days ago right on the top of my head. That hurt, so I slammed his head into the ground, chased him around the yard, slammed him into the ground again for good measure.

For the past few days, the human woman has been petting my head, finding the tooth bonk spot and picking at it. Good lord, can't she just let things heal on their own, she's always gotta pick at things.

Tonight I was just sitting there, minding my own business, looking very fluffy and regal and she attacked me because the tooth bonk had scabbed and there was a tuft of loose hair. She HAD to the pluck the hair, just HAD to... except it was still attached to my skin! The more she picked at it, the more fluff came out and pretty soon I was worried that I'd have this big bald spot on the top of my head and I'd look like Sammy and I'd have to go into business with him developing the Hair Club for Huskies or something stupid.

She finally picked it off, then she had to show it to the human man, who wasn't that impressed (he apparently has SOME sense). I figured she was going to frame it or put it in an album or something, but she actually did throw it away. I did get to sniff it though.

Humans do some weird things. My Mom is all worried about this bald patch I made on my hip from chewing it there. Can I help that it itches and the hair falls out there when I chew it? For pete's sake, it's not like I am in a dog show or something.

Tell your Mom to put some neosporin on your head. Then you can try to lick it off.

Your human woman and my The Mom must have something going on. I had a spot on neck where the formerly nice lady at the vets office shaved a little fur to take some blood. Hey, I knew it was for my own good, but The Mom has worried and worried over it. By the time she's done looking at it and making sure it's OK, and blah, blah, blah, I'll be known as Dakota the topless Husky. Sigh. They should pick at their own fur.

Oh, Meeshka--you have to understand, we just can't keep our hands off of you gorgeous dogs. Sorry about the gimptoe, though it sound like you more than made up for the assault on your character and head.

PENNY, WERE WE SEPARATED AT BIRTH????

Our mama likes to pick at stuff like that too, and our dad isn't impressed either.

Lita wanted me to tell you that she tagged you, so stop by our blog to see what she tagged you for!

Woos,

Our Dad has this obsessive desire to pluck us. When he starts he can't seem to stop! Before you know it there's tufts of our perfectly good fur all over the floor. What's that about?? I think he needs pluckers anonymous.

Humans are so wierd. My mom obsesses over all of my cuts and scrapes too. Today she was scratching my cheek and an old scab fel off and she made me lie down and lauched a full scale investigation all over my head.

My dad is obsessed with plucking tufts of loose hair. Obsessed.

Thank you Meeska!

You see, my mom was hooving up a big bowl of delicious-smelling buttery popcorn while she was reading this post. Then she kinda burped & turned green and gave me the rest of her popcorn. SCORE!!!!
