Those of you who have been following our vacation on our Facebook page have heard parts of this story, but we thought we should give more detail. On Monday, we went to Charleston, SC, and walked with some friends – both Siberian Huskies and humans – at Charles Towne Landing (more on that in a later post). Afterwards, we went to the Kickin’ Chicken in West Ashley which has a large porch where dogs are allowed. We tested that to the max with 9 Siberian Huskies and 6 humans, but the restaurant loved us. They brought large pails of ice water (with lots of ice) just for the dogs. Even better – the dogs were all served with ice water before the humans were even asked what they wanted to drink. We have seen dog friendly before, but this place knows how to do it right.
Anyway, they also have great human food. But, let’s think about this. 9 hungry Siberian Huskies who have been walking and 6 humans. Anyone see this coming?
Ok. Maybe we should check to see if anyone else tried a more subtle approach. How about the Siberian we met for the first time on Monday, Eshii. How would she do it?
So now it is time to yield to the master. Rusty the Rooster. Are you ready for this?
Sorry, there are no more pictures of the heist because all of the humans moved quickly to remove the pickle from Rusty’s mouth. The only thing that saved the pickle was the look on Rusty’s face when he bit into it. Sort of a “Whoa, that was not at all the flavor I expected” look that made him hesitate for half a second, just long enough for the pickle to be removed.
But wait, there is more.
Again, the next pictures are missing because Rusty snagged the paper and tried to pull the entire sandwich out of the basket. Very good move, but David is a skilled Siberian handler (something about the lasagna incident with his own Kodi and Nia) and saved the sandwich.
The rest of the meal was eaten in peace.
More or less.
