OK, let's get started with some basics. Other than your real names, which are Mom and Dad, what are your and Dad's biped-type of names?
Really? That's not what I hear you call each other! It's usually stuff like "Honey" and ...
OK, since you said "please". Now ... look into my eyes and tell me all your secrets.
You already know all my secrets, Stormy. I tell you everything.
Oh, yeah. So, tell me a little bit about yourself. You know, for the readers. Where were you born?
Well, like your dad, my dad was in the Army, too. We moved around a great deal. I was born between moves.
Yes. I was born in Pittsburgh, PA - where my grandparents lived!
Cool! What about Dad?
He was born in Lorain, Ohio.
How long was Dad in the Army?
Wow! Dad's so cool! Ha roo roo roo! Hey, Mom! Chase me! Chase me, Mom!
Hey, Zimmie! What are you doing? Are you playing with Mom!?! Where's my toy? I wanna play, too! I've gotta hand her my toy ...
Hey, Dave, let's play! C'mon! Chase me, Dave!
Knock it off, you two. I'm trying to conduct an interview.
We're just having some fun, Stormy! Mom, here's my toy! Here's my toy! Here's my toy!
Hey, Mom! Chase me!
Amber! Would you please get these two to give me some space!?!?!
Boys! Please! Boys!?!
Amber, seriously. If you don't get them to back off, I will.
Boys! In the living room, NOW! RRrrrrrrroooo!
Stormy, your girl puppy has great herding skills. And is a master at communication.
Thank roo. I'm very proud of her. I trained her myself, you know!
And you've done an outstanding job. The boys still need some work. I love them dearly, but ... you know.
Yes, I DO know! Speaking of training, do you and Dad have any formal schooling?
Wow. What does Dad do now?
He teaches college courses on-line.
Cool! That gives him more time with US! We love it when he runs us or we go on long family walks! And he has more time to golf and watch movies and read and stuff!
And what do you do now?
You know, Storm - housework, gardening, cooking...
Ooooh, yes, we love it when you cook!
You're a very good helper. You're always there to make sure the cheese is OK!
What can I say? The Siberian Husky IS a Working Breed, you know! Ha roo roo roo! And I know Zim helps you with the vacuuming and making beds and with the dishes!
Yes, he does. And Dave helps me with any color choices I have to make in my quilts or decorating ...
Guide Dog for the Color Blind! He's really talented in that whole color realm!
Yes, he is. And Amber is a GREAT security guard! She's so protective of all of us!
Yeah. I'm really proud of my girl puppy! And my boy puppy. And ... um ... Dave.
I know you love him, Stormy.
Hey! I keep your secrets! How about keeping mine!?!?
Gotcha covered, sweetie.
Well, thanks for the interview, Mom. Any last thoughts for our readers before I close?
Thank you, Stormy. Yes. Just a plea to my fellow bipeds. Here in our town, they allow fireworks and firecrackers to be set off starting a few days prior to the 4th of July - and on the Fourth itself. Please remember how sensitive our furry friends are to these LOUD cracks and bangs! Please keep your pets protected from the noise - preferably in the house! When you take them outside, please be extra careful with leashes! The loud noises can scare pups and kitties, and in their fright, they will often run off! Please take care so that won't happen!
Thanks, Mom. As somepup who doesn't really care for those loud, sharp noises myself, I appreciate you reminding everyone. Safety first!
Well, that's it for today, readers! Hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about our bipeds. I'm off to get some work done.
