Counter Surfer #2

It appears we have another counter surfer in the family.

I've taught him everything he knows.


Can you spot him? He's able to reach greater heights than even I have.

He still knows I'm boss though.

Bringing Back Easter

"Easter eggs? What Easter eggs? I don't see any Easter eggs."

Since someone didn't give me an Easter basket, I decided to celebrate today.

Yeah, I'm a little late. So what?

I had myself some chocolate, and then decided to delve into the plastic Easter eggs my lazy Mom hadn't put away yet. They were tucked so nicely into Dad's Easter basket. I carefully pulled each one out.

Next time I'll chew softer so I won't get found out so quick.

I tried to nibble on another tasty treat, Maggie's tail, but Mom put a stop to that right quick. She was flopping it all around, it was driving me crazy! I just took a little nibble.

A Husky can't have any fun around here.

My Afternoon Snack

I had a nice little snack this afternoon.

It was on the counter. Dad hadn't even opened it. I mean, it's been hanging around since Easter!

It was high time someone enjoyed it.

All my hard work wasn't even appreciated. Dad started yelling something about chocolate being toxic.

That must mean it tastes really good.

Mom made me sit down while she made sure I wasn't going to get sick. She was trying to figure out how much I ate, but I did a good job of shredding that box.

In case you're worried, I'm just fine.

Hey Mom, are you gonna eat that cookie?

The Claw

Phoenix here.

Mom is being lazy and hasn't updated my blog. She'd rather clean the house. Phhht.

Do I have to do everything around here?

So a couple days ago, Mom came across some dog blogs she used to read. She was very happy, until she realized I was reading them too, and picking up bad behavior.

I'm a pretty good boy most of the time. Mom will vouch for me. But upon reading Meeshka's blog, I was reminded of a Husky trait I'd forgotten about…

The claw!

I haven't clawed in a long time. Mom thought she'd seen the last of it and that I'd outgrown it. Doubly pffft.

Yesterday I wanted to go outside so I used the nose technique. You know, push your cold, wet nose on your human to let them know it's time to focus on me. It didn't work. She ignored me. I got more persistent. I even added the nudge. Nothing. I was about to use the old "push on her laptop so it closes and then she has to pay attention to me" when I remembered the claw!

So when she least expected it, and thought I was just sitting there being a good boy, I struck.

A firm claw, right down her leg. She nearly shot out of the couch! Awoo-hoo-hoo! It was awesome. Best of all, it worked. She promptly took me out.

If your human isn't doing your bidding, don't forget about the claw!

Thanks for the reminder Meeshka!

Game Over

Found this the other day on the internet. It made me giggle.

My Package Inspector

Phoenix is my own personal package inspector. No bag, purse, box, nor person that enters this house goes uninspected!

His favorite part of the day is when I bring in the mail! The other day we received a package from Amazon, and Phoenix insisted on inspecting before I was allowed to get everything out.

Inspecting the contents of my box.

Get that nose in there!

A taste test was also necessary!
