Life on the dog ranch

Okay, it's getting a little crowded and crazy around here. Of course, you all know that we had 5 dogs here... but then Carmen moved in with us and brought Gwumpy (also known as Reece) to live with us.

Now, don't get me wrong, Reece is pretty cool, for a sissy. I mean, I can beat him up, so... not impressed. But, I can pretty much beat up anyone in the house. But here's the thing: we all have to REALLY behave because of new rules.

#1 - No jumping on Carmen's belly to play with the puppy she's growing in there. I mean, her belly LOOKS like it's big enough to have a puppy come out, but the Mommies keep saying we have to wait until September. BORING!

#2 - No roughhousing with Reece. Sheesh. You'd think that just because Ziva, Max and I all had him pinned on the ground making growly noises and playing vampire that we're BULLYING him. Whatever.

#3 - I gotta get my hair cut! The mommies say that I have too much fur and that I'm poofing out pollen and stuffs, making Carmen wheeze. They say we gotta protect the puppy in her tummy, so *I* have to suffer the indignation of getting trimmed. I hope she has 12 puppies, by the way. That would be cool.

#4 - We can't jump on Max because he has boo boo'd legs. Something about hip dysplasia and muscles and stuffs. He went to the really nice vet at Gwinnett Animal Hospital that helps Echo walk when he's hurting, and she did some stuffs to his legs. He says he feels a little better now so MAYBE someday soon we can start roughhousing with him again.

And of course, pictures of me. I'm so pretty. I don't want to be trimmed!

This is how I look when Mommy Cate says she's gonna trim my hair:

Dief! Are they kidding about cutting your hair?!?! You know you need that for insulation against the heat - and to protect your skin from sunburn! Oh, I hope they're kidding!
We have lots of rules here, too. Most of them aren't any fun at ALL. I am strongly against the "no Siberians on the furniture" rule. It's discriminatory!
Play bows,

No, Dief, don't let them do it - you just can't get your furs cut - they take like a hundred years to go back, and all that hot sun won't be good for you. Hope you can talk them out of it.

Hey Diefie! Good to see ya. Sad to hear about all the stoopid rules. These hoomans with their rules. Phbbbtt! I am so sad about your hair. Don't they know you will cry when they cut it off. If you want, you could move in over here and we will take turns staying outside with two inside. They will never figure it out. They stoopid!

Shorter hair than you,


PS. Zowies butt must be related to you because it is very furry

Diefenbaker said...

Yeah, they aren't gonna shave me, just thin me out a little and trim me to maybe 2 inches long instead of 5. I might still talk them out of it but I mat so easily it gets Mommy Cate frustrated. I keep telling her I want dreadlocks!

Hot sun? Are you kidding? I stay inside in the A/C during the day! I'm a smart girl :)

D.K. Wall said...

Dief - the horrors. But do be really careful with any trim. Miss Kiska, our resident wooly, gets a few light trims to remove knots and to keep the paws functional, but everyone is right that your fur keeps you cool as well as hot!

the magic sleigh said...

Wooos Dief! I cannot believe they would desecrate the Siberian like that!
I think woo need to find a good way of revenge. Maybe mud in the house... or wait., I brought in a live rat once, that was fun and exciting!

You poor thing. I bet Carmen is going to have 25 puppies. I mean, it's taking long enough.

I hope you win the hair trim war.

Sounds like you been having your hands filled recently. We hope Carmen is doing well before having her puppies. Can't wait to see photos. Thanks for the share. Have a beautiful holiday weekend.

Hi dog lover,

No matter what your dog’s problem behavior is…

Be it jumping, peeing inappropriately, aggression, pulling on the leash…or whatever…

There is ONE SOLUTION that can help STOP this problem now

The sad fact is…

Most Dog trainers miss this solution entirely.

They give you cookie cutting training programs.

They use outdated and ‘mean’ dominance techniques.

Or worse yet…

They have no qualifications and are complete phonies.

So what’s the answer to stopping your Dog’s behavior problems?

In 4 simple words…

Discovering your dog’s hidden intelligence.

Let me explain…

In my 10 years as a certified trainer…there’s ONE BIG LESSON I have learned.

More intelligent dogs are better behaved.

A More intelligent dog takes commands easier

…and understands what you need from them.

The good news is…

No matter how clever you think your dog is.

You can >>> Unlock their hidden intelligence quickly and easily.

You can >>> I’ll explain everything on this page.

Don’t waste a second longer coping with problem behaviors you don’t need to be dealing with.

PS Check out the brain training for Dogs course now. It’s great for eliminating any bad behaviors by tapping into your dog’s hidden intelligence.
