New HULA Member: Shonee

Although Dusty Doodles has achieved HULA status, his partner in Huskyness, Ms. Shonee has proven to be a mistress of manipulation.

Their human woman contacted my human woman one afternoon totally frantic because Shonee was crying in pain. The poor thing would shriek the husky death scream seemingly randomly and for no reason their human woman could figure out.

She had done this on another occasion, which meant a trip to the vet and large amounts of money spent to find... absolutely nothing wrong with her. Their human woman was beside herself, wondering if this was something horrible wrong with poor Shonee. They checked her all over and couldn't figure out where it could possibly hurt.

While her human was eating a steak, Ms. Shonee let fly with a heart wrenching cry again, which made her human hand over the steak she had been eating. This seemed to help the pain somewhat, but she still seemed very restless and not comfortable. Just in case, the humans packed her up in their car and took her for a 12 mile drive to get her a corn dog. She ate the corn dog upon their return home, then curled up in a ball and went to sleep.

It was then that her humans realized that the last time this had happened, they had taken one of their other dogs to the vet. Wait a minute! Could it be that Shonee knew that another dog got special attention and had figured out a devious but brilliant way to not only get steak, but also a car ride to get a corn dog?

Yep, you guessed it. Our wonderful HULA operative Shonee has found the perfect way to manipulate her humans to get whatever she wants.

Welcome to the HULA Hoop Shonee. You have my utmost admiration



  1. Oh she's good...furry, furry good!

    Khorn dogs?

    Akhkhording to Prez2B Tubey, National Khorndog Day was this past Saturday, 3/22 -

    Khudoes to Shonee!


  2. Wow! That's some impressive manipulation! Good work Shonee!

    Woo woo, KA

  3. Wow, that's quite impressive! Even Samuel hasn't thought of that!!

    I was wondering how Doodles and his family were doing, since they haven't posted for several months!

  8. We can all learn a lot from her! i'm going to have to learn the husky death scream.

  9. That's pretty impressive.

  10. That's brilliant! We hadn't thought of that one, yet! When we are eating, one of us runs to the door and barks so the other one has to find out what the barking is for. The one who barks runs to the bowl of the other dog to eat up all her food while she checks out the back yard. Muahahahahaha!

  11. Brilliant! Obviously we are being much too quiet when there are good things on the human table.
