Lazy Deck Day

Originally uploaded by Shmoomeema.
Its so hard to be a husky, especially in early spring.

The mutatoe and I spent some time out on the deck this afternoon (and yes, the gate was open), waiting for the little fledgling bird snacks to fall from the sky. Apparently the little fledgling bird snacks aren't ready yet, I do recall them being more readily available in the next few weeks, so I'll need to start my stretching and limbering exercises so I'm ready. Those little things sure can run, which makes for an even nicer snack... having to "work" for it.

We went downstairs again for a spineless Sam visit. He's got such an attitude down there. He thinks he owns that room, and got all snarky with the mutatoe, put his paw on the mutatoe's neck (which is the international husky sign for: I'm a butthead) and the mutatoe didn't take kindly to that, so the human man got all worried and sent us outside. They act as those the spineless wonder is made of glass or something. I'm pretty sure he could take a head pounding with no problem, but he does things like limps and looks pathetic. Just the other day he was riccocheting off the aero bed and running around like a loon, but then the human woman wanted him to do something, so he started limping around and acting like he could barely move.

Gotta hand it to him, he's sure milking that recovery for everything its worth.

After our visit, I decided to run around the yard a bit. The mutatoe can't catch me when I'm in full out run mode, and I managed to do two circuits around the yard, then dash onto the deck without him latching on to my tail. Because of that, I deem today to be a very good day.

(don't touch the tail)

I had a baby bird snack in my yard once but Mom saved it's life and got it to a safe place where I couldnd't get it. Why did she care?

Copper, I suspect that she took the baby bird snack and ate it herself. I'm pretty sure my human woman does the same, because who, in their right mind, would throw out a very tasty snack like that.

I like baby bird snacks too! I like big bird snacks just as much. I actually caught one of the big ones and brought it in the house and dropped it at the feet of the human woman. She was not very happy with my gift to her. Then, she didn't even let me eat it! She put it in some plastic bag and I never saw it again. I didn't even get a pat on the head or "thank you Holly, you are an excellent hunter" from her. Thankless woman!

We do not have any bird snack trees in our yard, but sometimes I sniff something tasty under the deck and enjoy a good dig.

Magnum, come to my yard. My Mom grows birds. She has bird houses everywhere.

I don't know what a bird snack is yet but now I really want one. Wait until the fence gets put up and I can run, I will surely catch me a bird snack,
