Hey, gang! Rusty the Rooster here. Last week, my evil sister Natasha was showing how she can stretch to reach a tomato that was sitting on the floorboard of the Jeep. A tomato. Sheesh. Why not reach for something important?
I mean, last Saturday, our humans stopped at one of their favorite restaurants for lunch – The Apple Crate Cafe. The food is really good, but we also like that they have outdoor seating for the humans which can be close to where we park the Jeep. But while they are sitting there eating their food, it can get a little boring. So you have to entertain yourself, right? And I am, after all, the master of entertainment. So I saw something that caught my eye and reached for it.
I do agree with my sister on one thing. These seat belts are a real pain in the Qannik, if you know what I mean.
By the way, some of you have been talking about the Balloon Incident (or you can just go straight to the YouTube video here). Well, that incident was not just captured by our amateur videographer, it was also captured by an actual professional photographer. Yes, my proud moment was caught and the photographer emailed the picture to us. What an impressive sight, huh?

We Had A Little Snow
Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
Stretch a little more! You’re almost there!
How cool that the professional photographer caught you with your balloons! 🙂 That’s a great picture!
Rusty, you are tuly something else! I love your baloon skills… you could be a professional poxer and even outdo Mike Tyson with bitey-face (eerrrr. ears)!
You are way more fun than a picnic or almost anything else that is fun, Rusty the Rooster. Keep it up!
the photo is priceless! i love it Rusty! you look so happy. you all found a perfect home. sigh.
Wow, Rusty, now that you’ve been professionally photographed, you’ll probably be famous beyond belief!

What was in there, Rusty!?! I thought that container was Huffle’s parsley pot at first! HA roo roo roo!
Not surprised the professional puparazzi were following you around – and got you fighting that evil balloon!
You look absolutely lovely with your balloons! We hope that your momma is going to get it printed and framed because you look just like one of those movie star dogs☺
It looks like you’re DANCING with the ballons.

Sooooo close, yet sooooo far away ….
Awesome balloon photo! That Rusty… can he come live with me?
One of my favorite things about doggy seatbelts is that the dogs can’t get out of our 4runner when the doors are open. Except if they happen to step on the release button for the seatbelt… which has happened a couple of times – but never with the doors open, thank goodness.
Love the balloon wrangling skills!!!
We khould make such a great balloon wrangling team! I khould talk ’em in and woo khould paw ’em!
Maybe we khould even get the balloons to jump through hoops the next time!
Wooos Rusty, we still LOVE that shot of you and the balloons, I hate seat belts too, so retraining….

Woos, the OP Pack
Whoa. I am in awe of your balloon wrangling skills.
