Who We Are

Monday, September 22, 2008


Woo, everypuppy and kit-kat. It's me, Dave. Hard-working, enterprising Dave. I was talking to some of my Siber-Mal friends (and Huffle, Honorary Husky) last night - and I was reminded of something. It's true, we in the Ao4 aren't allowed on any of the furniture except for the bed. Sad, isn't it? But we DO make good use of that bed! I know a lot of you learned a lot from Zim's tutorial the other day - but really, you don't have to go to all that trouble moving the covers and the pillows and all to get comfy. Really. Check this out!

Inspiring, aren't I? But then little Cornelia Marie said she isn't big enough yet to even jump on the bed! She said her mom has caught her ONCE trying to jump on the bed (which means she's probably tried a LOT more than once!) but she didn't make it. I told her she needs to stretch and do the hoppy-hop to get up there, but she said it's "a bit high" for her.

I thought maybe I could do a tutorial on how to sproing with those back legs and get up there! (Remember, I'm the guy who helped himself to a snack off the top of the magic cold box!)

Huffle said she thought it would be a "very beneficial lesson to all those poor deprived pups and kitties who are not allowed on the bed (obviously this does not apply to you or me). I think it could work paw in paw with Zimmie's tutorial on how to get the bed covers just right." (Huffle talks real smart like Stormy.) I decided to get right on it!

Yeah... I need to post a tutorial on sproinging!

Like any good plan, you have to do a lot of thinking first.

Look for my tutorial soon. Not REAL soon, but soon. Woo.



  1. Mom didn't make the crumb pie! Dad bought it at an apple fest! We'd love to have the recipe too. It was sooooooooooooooo yummy!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  2. My mom is pretty sure that is what I'm doing now too!

    And since it is just a 'spot' past noon, she's probably khorrekht!

    I'll be looking furward to your lessons!

    PeeEssWoo: Please thank Big S-torm fur the musikh tip - I'll paw it up fur Mom and surprise her!

  3. oooh a sproinging tutorial, i can't wait.. just want to check that i'm doing my sproinging correctly you understand!

    I'm not "technically" allowed on the furniture (except the bed) but what they don't know won't kill them.. when they leave me home alone I'm ALL over it!

    Mum is in Sibe-Heaven looking at that last photo of you Dave, maybe you can do a tutorial on how to be a husky.. swiftly followed by on on how to Woo.. those would be most beneficial to me right now!!

  4. Excellent use of the pillow!


  5. While I don't sleep on the bed unless mom's in it, I love helpin' her make it..only she doesn't call it helpin'! Happy sleepin', Dave!

  6. Today's AO4 post is definitely x-rated and all the OP Pack is banned from seeing it.

    Lovingly, the OP Pack Mom

  7. Hey Dave, I will post a link to your notes from today on my blog so the OP Pack can see it for themselves! Then they don't have to miss out. I can't wait to see your tutorial. I think everyhusky can benefit.

    Ooooh, and thanks for saying I'm smart!

  8. research and development is the most important part of all successful projects. then you have to move into the planning stage. then documenting. then implementation. then verification.

    hmm, so I guess we won't be seeing this tutorial for a while?? ;)

  9. that is taking complete advantage of the situation..
    It didn't take Callie long to learn how to jump on the bed. She thinks she is someBODY when she gets up there...

  10. Oh Dave, you are the BEST!!!!

  11. WOO WOO Dave

    You look so comfortable!!! Mom tries to keep us off of the furniture but we just out-number her unless she puts those darn gates up!

    Enjoy your Nap!

  12. I know how hard you work Dave. I think your thinking strategy is a good one. I use it all the time.


  13. Dave, I think that you look especially handsome while you are thinking so very hard. I have my own technique of sproinging onto the bed, as does Shiloh and Bacci. Bacci has even gotten all fours up on the dining room table! But we all think that learning from the master cannot be a bad thing. We cannot wait for your lessons!

    Love & Snoses, Guinness

  14. Dave, you are a philosophy AND a scientist!

  15. Thankfuly I don't need that. I have my own steps to get on the bed, but many of our friends would like to learn how to do it without being punished!
    Kisses and hugs

  16. Oh that's pawsome I wanna learn how to get to the bed too

    We think the tutorial is a great idea. Who know, with a little marketing and some really talented sales dogs, you could make a fortune off of it.
    Oh, Norman says he's coming over to help dig up the bushes.

  18. Dave - I'm really concerned you're exerting yourself too much these days. You should really take a nice vacation.
