Do I Look Different?

Woo, everypup and everycat! It's me - Dave! Before I get to today's post, I wanted to post a big update about Bart. I think you can see the news in this photo:

Bart and Friend!  <3
Bart and Friend!

Woo. It looks as though Bart's got himself a girlfriend! Congrats to the happy couple. Mom hopes you both stay right here and continue to frequent the Ao4 HQ All-You-Can-Eat Mosquito Buffet.

On to the post. I take a lot of heat from some of my fellow Sibes out there because I love to run after toys and bring them right back to Mom so she'll throw them for me.

Dave at the ready!
Ready! Ready! Ready!

Again and again and again. It's a special game we like to play called "Fetch".

Here it is, Mom! Let's go again!

Stormy constantly reminds me this is not in the Siberian Husky Handbook -- hence my nickname "The LabraDave". I know she's just kidding, but it was time for her to renew our Siberian Husky Identification Cards, so I thought I'd best shape up for a while.

Here I come! Here I come!

In order to stay in Stormy's good graces, I've been doing this sort of fun thing lately when Mom and I play up on the upper tier. I run after the toy, then take off into the areas under heavy shrubbery, looking for Oswald. As a result of this, Mom has been making me play on the middle tier instead... thinking I'd forget about Os.

Kong-on-a-Rope! Kong-on-a-Rope! Kong-on-a-Rope!

Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. Storm is very proud of me and has renewed my Sibe ID card. I think I'm safe to play a little more.

Dave and Kong-on-a-Rope 3
Play some more, Mom?

Just to be on the safe side, I've also been grabbing at a lot of grass on our walks lately, have done extra zoomies and wrestling with Zim, and don't come when I'm called. I am sooooo Siberian! Woo.

Do I look any different?



  1. oh no, Dave, you look the same Labradave as always to me!

    My problem with the Fetch game is, I get fed up fetching after about three throws........so perhaps I am not part Labrador after all.....

    It is all such a worry. I think I will go and take another nap just to recover from complicated thought processes.

    We laughed at your AO4 HQ All-You-Can-Eat Mossie Buffet! I bet Bart and Girlfriend will be feasting later on.

    You ought to have a competition to name Bart's new love perhaps? I think Marge would be a good name for her. Marge the Mossie Eater.

    Hmmmm perhaps I will take my nap after all.

    lotsaluv, M.

  2. Okayokayokay - enough of the teasing of me - can't I come over and play pleasepleaseplease??????
    Huggers xo,
    KONG ON A ROPE - YEAH!!!!!

  3. Erm, we don't know, Dave... extra zoomies, bringing toys back to be thrown again and again... ummm - sounds like you have some of our Border Collie traits in there a bit.... hehehehe.

    Wanna come and play with us?...:-))

    Great pix!

    Thanks for your comments on our blog, our mum says a lot of the action ones she posted are taken on the set sports mode. She still has a lot to learn about the manual settings on it so plays safe when we move around alot. hehe :-)

  4. Fetch is fun...for a little bit. My limit is 3 throws.

    Bart and his friend kind of freak my mom out...can I borrow them?

    I'm glad your Sibe ID card was renewed! :)


  5. I am siberian hear me rooooooooar!

    Great post Dave!

  6. Good thing you got your card renewed - if you didnt that could be embarassing !!

    we love kong on a rope - face it - woodrow loved anything rope!!

    Woodrow, Sweetie & MJ

  7. You look as handsome as ever Dave whether you fetch or not! We think it's awful sweet of you to take your toys back to your mom instead of dropping them somewhere 20 feet away and making her go get them. Your games probably last a lot longer that way.

    Dave, were's the tape holding up those labrador ears? Is it disguised? you can't fool me!

  9. We aren't sure what's different other than we don't see your lead on and we can't find your zipper either. No one here is much of a fetcher. TD likes to chase balls but run the other way with them.

  10. I do definitely see a little something different in your eye buddy. I don't fetch and I don't listen so well, maybe I am part Sibe?

  11. I think you are looking very Sibe today Dave!!!


  12. I think woo outran your frekhkles!


  13. You look like Dave the Siberian who likes to have fun, thats what!

    Some of these old time Siberians aren't happy unless they are sitting in a snowbank waiting for someone to get out the sled, snarling and grumping around.

    You seem like a more up to date guy who knows fun and how to have it. Got to it, Dave, and never mind the teasing!


  14. We'd love you just the same even if she'd put Labradave on the card instead of Sibe.

    And you look just as handsome as always.


  15. Looking very good to us Dave - we don't play fetch at all - we reckon if the humans want something then they really shouldn't be throwing it away in the first place.
    We think it is a cheek to expect us dogs to run and get it back but we hear some dogs do enjoy that.
    Live and let live we say!!!
    love and kisses

  16. Wooos! We are Sibe, hear us WOOOOO!

  17. Dave,
    I have very sad news...I lost my toy. :( We were playing having a great time and mom threw it and it went under the kitchen cabinets. I kept trying to get it but I can't reach it and mom's arm won't bend that way. BUT mom went to the store and they had THREE more just like it!!!! YIPPEEE...and these ones squeek. Until I kill them, that is.

  18. I will let you into a secret Dave ...... I like to fetch too.

  19. We've been thinking. Unless you love water and are ball obsessed (traits of our neighbor lab), you can't really be a lab. HOWEVER, we're smart (we know that to get the toy thrown again, we have to bring it back) and really LOVE our momma too, so maybe you're a Belgian in a sibe suit.

    Oh wait, you don't come when called...nevermind.

    Brice the Handsome

  20. Dave, You still look like a Sibe to us.

    Whatever is Bart? We can't figure it out from the photo.

  21. What is the matter with fetch? Tennis balls are the best. Don't let anyone tell you different Dave..
    Sure glad Bart is happy...

    Big Sloppy Kisses
    Gus, Louie and Callie

  22. Thank you. We had all forgotten Bart is a bat. Jan was trying to peer at them with a magnifying glass, mumbling, what in the world are they?

  23. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Sweet Dave!!!!
    For us you're the same LABRADAVE we know!!!!!
    And.....Woowowooooo...what a great game you do with your mommy!!!!!!!
    Kong on a rope!!
    PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE...can we come and play with you?????
    Seems soooooooooooo funny!!!
    A girlfriend for Bart????
    AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW...time for love!!
    let us know how their love are going on!!!!!
    We love you!!!
    Can't wait to see your next post!!!
    You guys are the best!!!
    Sweet kisses and licks

  24. Don't you listen to them Dave, you know fetch be the best game ever!
    Oh, go Bart!
    ~lickies, Ludo
    pee ess: Can you please tell Storm that yes, it ok, I has got her entry from the blog.

  25. I don't think you look any different. Still a lab in a sibe suit. But that's okay. I'm a sibe in a catsuit.

  26. Labradave, siberian, you look just lovely to me even if you are a woofie...

    Love all the pictures. Love your smile...
    Hugs GJ xx

  27. Crawling around under the shrubbery after small vermin? Seems like a doxie trait to me ;o) Hmmmm....I like the sound of that...DoxieDave.
    Seriously, I think you are great no matter what anyone calls you. I also think it is special that you don't give in to all the Sibe Peer Pressure. Be your own man, Dave!
    Snuggles, Twix

  28. If we read all of the posts right, you are a Border-Doxie-Sibe-Labra-Dave. Woo. That is a lot of zippers.

    P.S. - So happy for Bart. Is her name Barb? Will there be baby-bats?

  29. Different? Yes! Mommy says you look mighty handsome! Great pics and kool toy, wish i could play too!!


  30. Hi, Dave!
    Bart has a girlfriend!!! Wow!
    Nope. You look the same handsome and happy Sibe as always!
    Kisses and hugs

  31. Hey Dave, you might have just a *smidgen* of retriever in your gene pool somewhere...be proud!
    Your bat pals are the coolest, BTW! Send 'em my way 'cuz we got too many skeeters of our own :-(
    Your pal,

  32. Whew! I'm very glad you weren't kicked out of the club. The world wouldn't be the same without you!

    Do you think Bart and Mrs. Bart will have baby Barts? Are they even married? Maybe it's not Mrs. Bart but the future Mrs. Bart.


  33. you sure have alot of beautiful green grass there...all our grass is dead....we are on a water crisis...but...you can notice the houses of the people who dont care about the rules...they all have beautiful lawns and beautiful flowers...poor me and my dead lawn...

  34. You look ALL Sibe to me Davy!! I'm really not seeing any Lab there. Besides, Khady plays fetch, and I KNOW she's a Sibe!

    Your Malagal,

  35. Gosh, Dave. All that and you fetch too?!

  36. Do you think the bat we sent packing has finally arrived at your house and is Bart's new girlfriend?!
    We can send more - just let us know!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  37. oh the bats are cute! and YOU look SOOOOOO good in your pics today!

  38. It's okay. Waldo doesn't know how to act like a Dane, either. Dock diving is definitely a retriever activity. We are just stretching breed boundaries! We are ambassadors of anomalies!
