We like to keep our blog lighthearted and fun, but in the interest of also providing information and helpful hints, we bring woo a live demonstration today.
Jack & I are going to demonstrate a manuveur that could save your life, if woo ever catch on fire. (it could happen - woo get too close to the fireplace, or someone drops a lit cigarette on your tail, or woo leap through a flaming hoop )
Most human pups learn this pretty early, so woo can even practice this using of of them as your partner!
STOP...... DROP....... & ROLL
First, perfom the STOP - woo might need to do this for the flaming subject,
as they are probably racing around like a lunatic,
so use whatevere means necessary to persuade the flaming dog/person
to STOP running, cause running adds oxygen to the flames...
Next, is the "DROP"
.... I'm assisting Jack in these pictures. Really.
and of lastly, ROLL.
Jack is adding a fancy forward somersault to his roll,
but just plain old rolling around will do, too.
The purpose of rolling is to smother the flames.
There woo have it, how to put yourself out if woo catch on fire.
PS: No huskies were hurt in the making of this blog post....
Mom, since this may be Doomsday, can we have extra treats, pleaze?
Ha-roo roo roo, guess what.... it worked! The treat-part, that is. For some interesting stuff about the whole 12-21-12 Doomsday event, check out the Doomsday 2012 Fact Sheet put out by the SETI Institute... and we'll see woo again for the View from the Moo on Monday!
Ha-woo dear furiends!
Its me, Miss Moo, with another edition of the View from the Moo!
Seems to me that a month ago mom promised more pictures from when her pup-kids visited.... and she never delivered! so we'll take things in our own paws & post a few:
This looked pretty interesting, its from their visit to the Whaling Museum in New Bedford MA:
Look out below!
These full skeletons of whales hang over the lobby!
The furthest one back is from a pregnant female with her unborn calf - sadly, she was hit by a cruise ship & died a few hours later. See her baby? It still has vestigal hind legs!
Going up the stairs gives woo a close-up & personal view!
Second floor: artwork depicting different whaling ships & aspects of whaling....lots of ship models on this floor, but the pics were too blurry to post-
Did woo ever wonder if woo could fit inside a whale's jaw?
Have a seat....
A half-size whaling ship!
Getting the tour....fascinating information from a gentleman who knew a great deal about whaling & whale boats! ( He went to the same high school as mom's mama did!)
Manning the pump handle to turn the winch to raise the anchor
This was quite an improvement over trying to haul the anchor up manually!
Going back down to the lobby..... watch out for that whale, kid!
Relaxing beneath a large male humpback skeleton
And can woo believe, we didn't get as much as one bone to nibble on? Harumph! No fun!
Well, mom says we would probably not like being on a whaling ship; the food was bad, there was no clean drinking water, it was dark, damp, & foul in the crews quarters, it was stinky and smokey and slippery on deck most of the time... .... and woo could be stuck on that ship for 2 or more years on a single whaling expedition! Doesn't really sound like our idea of "fun" after all. Ha-roo roo roo!
So, to end with, here we are with bones that we were allowed to have: treat bones! Woo-hoo!
We are sorry, furiends, but because of a sudden display of commercial
spam in our comments, we are going to turn on that stupid word
verification and comment moderation. Bad humans!
(Star showing her disdain of such devious human behavior from beyond the Rainbow Bridge.)
We know, and we agree, its difficult to use, and we really hate to do this, but there seems to be no other option to eliminate companies posing as peeps from making comments that contain links where they would like to direct our readers, and we don't want that going on on OUR blog!
thanks fur understanding, and we do hope woo will still take time to leave your messages. They make us happy.... and we like that!
good Moo-rning everyone!
Welcome to "Monday's View from the Moo" - that's me!
Once again Mom has been super busy, but she PROMISED to do today's post!
We'll start with the good stuff: new pics of US!
We were tempted with treats, serious business that calls for serious looks...
(Notice our red & green eyes....we're so seasonally chic!)
Jack & I haven't been up to much at all since the hupups left after Thanksgiving, here is our boring schedule:
Cherrios with dad. Nap. Breakfast. Snack on Mom's breakie leftovers. Nap. Goodbye treat as mom leaves, Nap. Good dog treat when mom gets home. Nap. Good dog treats when dad gets home. Nap. Dinner. Nap. Dinner leftover licks. Nap. Mid-evening snacks.Nap.and, at the end of our exhausting day, a good-night snack.After the peeps go to bed, go outside to harrass the wildlife. Come back in & Sleep.
So woo see, nothing really interesting to report, but all the same, that's this weeks View from the Moo...
We had a visit from the grown-up KidPups, and woozers, I gotta tell ya, dont think they were ever told about that "don't give the dogs scraps from the table" rule. We had treats, yummies, and tasty foodstuffs for their entire visit! Wo-hoo!
so much to tell, and Mom has so little times,
Here's my special Thanksgiving View from the Moo!
LOTS OF HUGS & PETTING!
Beach trip - Big waves!
C'mon Dad, no more pics...
Well, ok, one with the pupKids:
After dinner walkies: Fourty Steps-
Jack & I stayed up at the top with Dad, cause we're too smart
to want to hike up fourty steps right after dinner!
Well, that was Thanksgiving Day. The peeps all went on other trips without us, we'll give woo a sneak-peek at some really cool stuff later this week- mom's gotta go-
