It Was the Biscuit

What with the mutatoe’s recent stomach issues, the human woman has been searching for a cookie that he can eat without sending him to the emergency vet and spending thousands of dollars. I say just feed us oyster crackers, as they are tasty and don’t upset our stomachs, but no, she wants “dog” biscuits. Eesh.

So, yesterday we got some kind of holistic peanut butter cookie that was home-made (at least that’s what the package claimed) with the loving hands of grandmother types who only use home grown products such as monosodium glutomate, plucked from their back yards.

At about 11:30 pm, my stomach began to rumble. Then it began to roll. Then it began to gurgle, and it was at this point that I began tap dancing on the human woman’s head to get the point across that if she didn’t get up immediately and let me outside, she would have a lovely mess to clean up. She wasn’t AS quick as I had hoped, but I made it outside in time.

12:30 am, a few woos and one claw and outside I was again.

1:30 am, well, you get the point, and it was around that time that she shoved a pepto bismol tab down my throat and told me to go back to sleep. Nice, eh? Great sympathy for the gastro-intestinal issues that SHE gave me. Regardless of the commercials that say that pepto is fast acting, I continued to wake her up every hour so I could explode in the yard. She had the gall to complain this morning about being tired. Um, how about tired and have liquid shoot out of your butt in the back yard, how about that for inconvenient???

I had hoped to blog today about the really cool thing that I got in the mail and wasn’t quickly scooped up by the human woman who refuses to give it back to me, but that will have to wait until later.

In the meantime, just to show you what I have to put up with, the human woman has decided that the KC and the Sunshine Band song “Get Down Tonight” was written about a human telling a husky to get off the bed, as the lyrics go something like this:

Get down
Get down
Get down
Get down
Get down tonight Baby

I’m assuming that the husky’s name is Baby, and yes, I can see why the human woman might think this was about a husky owner, as it does take approximately 5 attempts to get us to do anything, and then we have to complain back.

(got a pepcid with the Mutatoe for breakfast, feeling much better, although I do poot when I run up the stairs)


  1. Why are they SOOOOO SLOW to khatch on sometimes???

    Our poor pal Thunder in OP, Kansas wasn't taken seriously when he had to use the little Sibeboy bush -

    And K(h)at The Khutie in Wooshington State had to retrain her dad -

    Tsk Tsk -

    Hope WOO feel better soon!


  2. That sounds like what happened at our house Wednesday night! Every 30-60 minutes, poop!

  3. Ha roo roo roo! Guess what's stuck in Mom's head now?!? Ha roo roo roo!
    Sorry about your tummy. Treats that are just fine for everypup else can make us horka. Go figure.
    Did you get your Pepsid in CHEESE? I get one in CHEESE every night now. Dave and the girls get a placebo in CHEESE. I don't know what a placebo is, but they look as forward to that as I do to my Pepsid!
    Play bows,

  4. Woo! We hope your tummy feels better by now. Try to let Mom sleep in a bit tomorrow morning. Humans get cranky when they're tired.

  5. We didn't mean to howl & ha-roo out-loud, but your story made us "burst" into laughter. We hope you feel better, really.

  6. We hope you are feeling better now! It sucks when you don't feel well!

    Oh Meeshka.. I am sorry your tummy got upset. I sure hope it is better now!!!

  8. Oh Meeshka, I'm sorry about your tummy issues. Abby gets gurgly tummy a lot too. Mom always gives her some tums to help, and some acidophilus too.

    If you want some really good, and healthy treats, try the Natural Balance Duck and Potato ones. That's what we get cuz of all the allergy issues, and there are no grains, by-products, or nasty preservatives in them. We get them at Petco.

    Hope you are feeling better!


  9. Hi Meeshka, So sorry to hear about your upset tummy. That is definitely NO fun. Hope you are feeling better and that your human decides you are right and gives you oyster crackers.
    Thanks for stopping by our blog. We were honored to hear from the Queen of the huskies!
    Feel better soon,

  10. On Meeshka how could she? And you were trying to tell her you had to go. Don't they get it? When you ahve to go, you just have to goooo.

    Now about these biscuts,does my mom need to send you some of our homemade biscuits?
