Not Quite Ruby Tuesday

Tartok here. I know, it is Tuesday and you expected to see Ruby here.

Instead I thought I would demonstrate how we Siberian Huskies are a Working Breed.

The amount of effort required is absolutely staggering.

Don't be jealous. Not every pup can work as hard as me.

The human says I need to tell you that there is no trick photography. No computer generated graphics. Each of these is a separate untouched photograph.

Hard to believe, I know, but it is our work ethic.

    Goooooodbye, Ruby Tuesdayyyyy ….

    Those are some mad not-moving skills. Almost as impressive as Tucker’s!

    Oh wow Tartok,

    That sure looks like you put a lot of hard work and effort to achieve such task! Keep it up. And yes, we would like to sign up for a workshop if you ever think of conducting one.

    I think you should run a few workplace productivity seminars – because I know a few folks who have adopted your style. 🙂

    That sure looks like hard work!
    Now… go and take a nap… you deserve it!
    Kisses and hugs

    Tartok, I think you and I might be long-lost brothers.

    Hey, being beautiful is a lot of work in and of itself…so, keep up the good work!

  8. Sagira on April 27, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    Wow, you are a very hard worker!

  9. Mogley G. Retriever on April 27, 2010 at 8:03 pm

    Stealth, no one respects the finer points of stealth. Laying in wait, a coiled spring, ready to jump into action to defend your home, chase a squirrel or go for a walk. Your motto should be “Be Prepared”. When the need arises you can quickly leap into action. Keep up the good work.

    Tartok, clearly you have had special training to reach your level of efficiency! Not recommended for the faint of heart or the out of shape!

  11. Clive on April 27, 2010 at 6:06 pm

    It takes a lot of effort to look that chilled – we know!

    take care

    That is a tough life, but somedoggy has to live it!

    It is really a good thing you are Husky and a working breed. A lesser breed may have strained something trying to emulate your technique.

    I am right there with you, Tartok. It’s a tough job but one only a sibe can truly handle.

    Woos, Phantom

  15. Khyra on April 27, 2010 at 12:09 pm

    I think woo must have a kham on me right now!

    I’m perFURmiing those furry same job funkhtions!

    Hey Tartok,

  17. Brooke & Darwin on April 27, 2010 at 11:17 am

    That’s some impressively hard work there Tartok! I hope you didn’t strain anything!

  18. Khumbu on April 27, 2010 at 10:40 am

    It is hard work being a working dog Tartok your doing a great job, woooos to you.

  19. Ozzie & ZoZo on April 27, 2010 at 10:27 am

    When you make an animation out of all the pictures, you can really see the true action of your work.

    Well Done!

  20. Jeanine on April 27, 2010 at 10:25 am

    It is not easy being beautiful!! That takes some hard work!!! But Tartok is doing a fabulous job!!!

  21. KB on April 27, 2010 at 9:06 am

    I know – you were thinking, using your superior intellect to create great things! Where’s Ruby? Busy working out the doorknob problem?

  22. Kira The BeaWoootiful on April 27, 2010 at 8:58 am

    Not all dogs have the stamina to hold a deck down like that! Good for you and how nice of you to demonstrate how it’s done, Tartok!

  24. Zoe on April 27, 2010 at 7:57 am

    You are so right, Tartok! Why, just yesterday I looked up from my comfy curled up spot on the couch when mom came home and I thumped my tail, several times! She said something about me lazing around all day. Hmmph. But I did get a treat!

  25. Mr Koda MD on April 27, 2010 at 5:05 am

    And you have it down to a fine art my furiend!


  26. Wild Dingo on April 27, 2010 at 2:37 am

    YOu moved your tail at least in 3 different positions. I would demand a raise for that!

  27. Maxx on April 27, 2010 at 1:22 am

    Great demonstration!
    It’s not easy being a husky, takes a lot of hard work and effort!
