Feeling Sorry For Us?

Sigh. Left in the car - AGAIN.

The hu-dad says we have run pictures like the above way too many times.  The humans stop and have pizza and beer, or BBQ and beer, or Mexican food and beer – well, you get the picture – and leave us starving puppies out in the car.  For some reason, the hu-dad thinks that is an unfair characterization of what happens.  He said far more likely is that while he is getting food, we are being disloyal and sharing our Siberianess with passers-by like this –

More admirers.

But do any of them have food?  Are they feeding us?  So go ahead and take your pictures while you sip your beer and eat pizza, hu-dad, but this should not alleviate your guilt.

    Nope, I don’t feel sorry for you. You Herd Sibes have it *made*!

    Seriously!! With a face like that I can’t believe you don’t get ANY tasty food! That is soooo wrong! Much more destruction at the home front is needed I believe!

    We go with the OP Pack idea well! Perhaps you can hang an order slip on the jeep of what each of you would like to have. For each photo take, a treat will be given! You guys might eat more than hu-dad and it’ll all be for free. Weeeeeee

    That’s what Wai-Pai would do!

    Love,

    Some of us know the real story Natasha. We’re trying to get the word out.

    Oh man…the neglect, I think you should file a case. hehe

    The hu-Dad needs to leave a cup attached to your window so those passers-by could leave a tip for the privilege of your company:)

    Lets put a more positive spin on it – at least your not at home alone with no passers by to admire you! 🙂

    We love going in the car – we quite often get to come out and go with our humans to the places 🙂

    Licks and lots of slobber,

    your hu-dad sure is cruel. to the bone. Siberian justice should be planned and executed accordingly…—oh wait, was that the fence, dog door, door distruction that was the latest justice? perhaps it should be more severe than that…so hu-dad understands his crime…

    Oh my… someone has the sad eyes down to a science. 🙂

    Woo need to paw a sign that says “Please Feed The Siberians”

    The car trip that became a guilt trip! Who would not melt over those sad eyes? Your eyes were so sad and sympathetic there, you could be a raccoon, or Elijah Wood.

    Humans sure know how to hurt us K-9’s. Our humans drive through the ice cream and cheesburger dispensing window and eat them in the front seat, making us stay in the back seat. Once in a great while we get a kiddie cone of ice cream, but even then we have to get out of the car to eat it. Just once we need to have a drive through ASPCA window so we can point out how mistreated we are.

    Well, perhaps the sad routine will help your plight and someone will call the ASPCA when they see you poor, neglected Sibes out there in that Jeep! I’d send you some pizza bones from here, but there never seem to be any left over.

  18. Ice 'n Ayla on April 18, 2011 at 5:19 am

    Yup, you got the idea all right. That saaad face will draw an admiring, and sympathetic crowd every time. Me’n Ice have got that one down to a science, too, whenever our hu-Mum takes us uptown with her.

The Red Balloon (Except Silver)

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
