Our friend Zim is interviewing us, and has posed some thought-provoking questions. Being the senior member of my pack, I’ll answer first, then Jack.
Zim: 1. Does the ocean freeze? And if so, is that where frozen fish comes from?
Star: Not that we’ve noticed yet, but it’s our first winter here. I think frozen fish come from even farther North. The Inuit people (who were among the first humans to fall under the spell of huskies) knew they needed something to sell to the rest of the humans, (thereby spreading word about huskies as invaluable assistance dogs of the North) and since they live in the biggest frozen food locker on the planet, it just made sense to freeze & market frozen fish. (They wouldn’t touch the stuff themselves.)
Jack: I dunno. And I dunno, I thought they came from the big freezie box that holds lots of good stuff in my human’s kitchen.
Zim: 2. Are jelly fish really made out of jelly? Do they taste like strawberries?
(jellyfish photos off internet, not ours)
Star: They certainly look like it, Zim. I haven’t been able to taste-test one yet, my humans freak out when I approach them.
Jack: I dunno, but they look yummy.
Zim: 3. Your coats always look so bee-roo-tiful! To what do you attribute that?
Star: *blushes* Why, thank you, Zim. I guess I was just born with a naturally beautiful shiny coat.
Jack: I have wiry fur, so Mom uses “finishing spray” after my bath. She says the spray makes my fur softer and smells better. But I dunno, I think I smell things just fine without the spray.
Zim: 4. When we talk, Storm, Am and I "roo". Dave "woo"s. How about you and Jack? How would you describe your voices?
Star: I have a wide range of vocalizations for different occasions. I roo-woo in a deep voice, woof softly, bark loudly with authority, and rarf-rarf-rarf at Jack when he’s being annoying. I tell off other dogs by raising my muzzle and wooing at them. Humom says this picture is me trash-talkin.
Jack: Hey, I do know this one! Mom says I sound like a wounded seal. Dad says I sound like a Wookie. Just tonight the neighbors were laughing at my funny sounds!
Zim: 5. Do you have a favorite toy? Do you share?
Star: I do indeed have several favorites. My favorite favorites are my quacky duck and my new squeakable latex alligator, and I do NOT share my favorites. I have generously allowed Jack to play with one of my old toys. And I took his ball away too, cause ALL the toys are really mine. That’s the rule I made.
Jack: Me? Never had a toy till I moved in here. Star won’t share, so mom got me a fuzzy ball (I picked it out myself). I took a torn-up ol’ penguin from the box, and Star mostly lets me have it. But her big pile of toys are “paws-off”. And she keeps trying to swipe my fuzzy ball.
Thank you, Zim, for interviewing us. It was fun! Zim had some very tough questions, hope you enjoyed reading our ans-woo-ers.
