I am a Siberian Husky....a YOUNG Sibe Husky, in fact.
Which means that, like any other young pup, I am
ready to be nosy, noisy and VERY curious when it
comes to new things in the house, be it animal,
plant or TREE!
MoM says that I am a Good Dog. I stay out of things
when she lets me know they are bad for me, and have my
polite K-9 manners, but you know, some things you just
have to be very cautious about.
Take Christmas Trees, for instance. I LOVE to bite
and chew on sticks outside, which can't be good for
my tummy, but heck!...'tis FUN! And this Christmas
Tree I have only heard about sounds as if it is going
to be put in MY high traffic area, and if it is like
the big oaks out back, is going to have LOTS of
STICKS! YAY! Now, nothing against sticks, but they
are talking about putting electrical lights on this
sucker and glass things, and ropey things...all
shaped like my favorite tennis ball I jump into the
air to catch!! YAY! Also, I have heard that a lot of
MoMs and DaDs put candy on the trees, and, well, if
Pine wasn't enticing enough to a pup's nose, candy
will make it just scrumptious!
I am really hoping that people out there that are
owned by animals take care to remember that these
decorations everywhere for the Holidays are very new
to us...even to the lucky animals who have seen
Christmas before. Please don't get too upset at those
of my kin that forget their manners to hear the
wrapping paper crinkle, or taste a big sticky sweet
candy cane, or those athletic dogs who LOVE to play
ball, even if they DO choose the blown glass family
heirloom. Remember that although we are VERY smart,
we animals get carried away by the moment, and don't
really know the sentimental value of a tree....after
all, most of you Humans KNOW what we do to trees,
Ok, ok...MoM says I cannot have a puppy for
Christmas. I don't see why not, I mean, I really will
feed it and hug it and take care of it's litter box
and stuff!! And well, when I don't have time for it,
you know, cuz of all of the "stuff" I do, well, she
can do it, and if not her, then someone else will,
And maybe if I don't want the puppy anymore, I can
give it to Cuba-Marie for Christmas! Puppies are soooo
cute and fun to give for presents!
MoM says that is wrong tho. She doesn't really
agree with giving any animal as a Christmas present,
'cuz what if you get the wrong color? Or the puppy is
too much to handle, or the OTHER Humans in the house
(like MoMs and DaDs) don't want the critter? Who
could NOT want a puppy? They are so cute...they
aren't like full grown DOGS....um...wait...
Well, MoM may have a point. Unless I know Cuba-
Marie is able to take care of a puppy, or a kitten,
or fish or whathaveyou, I won't bother. Then, if she
does absolutely-without-a-doubt want a pet, I guess I
should let her pick it out, you know, for personality
bonding and stuff. And I guess I should make sure
MoM and DaD would LET her have her own pet, too.
And then, of course, we shall go to a place where
the pet needs a home. Not these pet stores, where the
awful Humans make $ off of my friends' misery from
horrible cages and under-age breeding, and no
Boy, there sure is a lot to think about. Cuba-
Marie, is it ok if I just get you a card???
