Happy Human Woman's Day

Ok, so officially its called "mother's day", but the human woman will have to do.

We tried to get the celebration off to an early (day early) start by surprising the human woman with a gift, but she spoiled our surprise by catching Loki with the gift in his mouth. Oh sure, she didn't seem very surprised that he had somehow managed to ooze himself between the "Husky proof" fencing she spent hours putting up to keep us from getting behind the shed, nor was she overly thrilled with having to climb over the fence in a bath robe at 8 am in the morning in the rain (note to readers: the human woman wears sleepy pants EXCEPT when she's sleeping... yeah I know). She also didn't seem very pleased to have to wrestle the dead bird out of Loki's jaws and toss it over the fence (some people are never happy with their gifts) or lifting the Mutatoe's ample ass back over the fence when he somehow couldn't get back over it.

Ok, fine, so that didn't go over as planned. Sam tried his paws at spending some quality time with the human woman when they took him to the vet for his annual shots. Oh sure, we didn't scream and complain in our crates when they took Spineless Bionic Hip puppy out the door, we behaved very well.

Sammy was very nice and shared a lot of his fluff with the human woman, as much as possible on the ride there and back again. She seemed very pleased to have wet husky fur embedded in places she never thought it could embed. I guess you can say that we gave the gift that keeps on giving, as she was still pulling it out of her mouth when they left to run other errands.

After they got back from the errands, we decided once again that we would try to get her another gift, and sure enough, the bird gods answered our prayers and plopped another flightless wonder right in our laps (if dogs had laps). Once again, she didn't seem too keen about the bird (she probably already has one), and this one went over the fence as well.

I'm thinking that after all that work and planning, I'll just get the credit card and order some stupid flowers next year.

(By the way: Sam was not fooled by the big stuffed Lab at the vet office. I'm going next week, so I'll let you know how long it takes me to destuff that thing)

For my mum, I let her have her coffee in bed with no fur in it for Mother's Day. I thought that was a good present. But I did claw her at 6.30am to wake her up to wish her happy mother's day. You gotta get an early start for these things!

I'm glad woo answered what inkhwiring mind wanted to know: did Sam fall for the stuffed Lab!

I'm sorry your human woman mom kharakhter didn't appreciate all the wonderful things you and your Sibelings did fur her -

Yep, next year flowers - or maybe a latte tree!

PeeEssWoo: I got my doggy nanny two of those khook KZK HTP bags - maybe I'll try fur a bird in the am before I give 'em to her!

I am so blown away by the thoughtfulness you all have shown your human woman! It's enough to bring tears to my eyes.
I got my mom up at 0500, so she could enjoy her special day to the fullest.
Tail wags,
PS: I sure hope Khyra meant "khooL" HTP Bags, not "khook". She must have khookhies on the brain!

I left my hu-mom a dead baby bird but couldn't wait till Mother's Day.


Khyra The Siberian Husky said...

Yes Storms!

I did -

PLUS, the silly human that designed these keyboard thingies put the "l" and the "k" too khlose to each other for MY Sibe paws - just imagine how Summi would spell things with his SummiSized Swappers!

Woo guys are so very thoughtful, too bad your humans just don't get it. TWO birds? Awesome!
We dug up the yard for our humom for Mother's Day. Aren't we helpful?

Such thoughtful gifts, Meeshka. One of the kids put my paw in some wet crappy stuff, took it away and brought it back with sappy stuff painted all over it so I could give it to The Mom. The Mom oohed and aaahed over that...... she didn't seem as pleased with the brown pawprints I left on the floor this afternoon though.

Holly said...

WOW, 2 birdie presents and she STILL wasn't happy?!?! That doesn't seem very thankful for all your hard work!

That was very thoughtful of you to give your human woman a bird! She might have liked it better if it had actually been ALIVE! The flowers are a much better idea!
