Golf Class

Tail wags, dear readers! It's me, Stormy. I got a great question a bit ago from our dear friend Kat, of the Washington Woos. She said, in part, "... I was thinking the other day that maybe Stormy could add a golf class to the School of Siberian Studies. My mom's coworkers make golf comments and jokes all the time and my mom doesn't get them, so I would like to enroll her in the class."

Ah, golf! As you may know, our dad loves the sport. We even have our very own course right here within Ao4 HQs, as seen at this link. I've observed and studied this game and really, Kat, it's quite simple and one post ought to do it.

It all comes down to one thing. Whoever hits the ball the fewest times wins. It's that simple. So ... why go out at all?

Think about that one!

See what I mean? Stay home with your Siberians and you not only win the golf match, but you win something else as well. Let me illustrate; here are my dad and I - and he's not golfing!

Ah... this is the life, isn't it, Dad? Congrats on a great non-round!
Hey Storm and Dad! Can I not golf next?!!?

Looks like he scored big time, doesn't it? Zim was anxious to not go golfing with our dad, too. I was still busy rewarding Dad for a great round of not golfing. Look at how happy he is!

OH, yeah! This is sooooooo wonderful!!!

So you see, Kat - if your mom stays home with you, she doesn't even hit the golf ball at all, thereby winning the match. AND she wins by spending time with you, Steve, and Wilbur. And your dad. Everyone's a winner in this case!

Thanks for a great question - and thanks for studying at the Stormy Zoluschka Kryschtal School of Siberian Studies.

Tail wags,


  1. That's a grrreat strategy, Stormy!! We're definitely going to pass it along!

    Our Moms wants to know, if she can come hug you too!

    Have a pawsome weekend!
    Woofs and Kisses!

  2. This is totally why I asked you for help! It makes perfect sense! And you know what, if she wants to play with a ball, she can play ball with me! And I promise, the winner is not the one who hits the ball the least.

    Great lesson once again, Stormy!!


  3. That's a wonderful lesson! You are an excellent teacher Stormy! The pictures are excellent...in the last one, I can't tell who looks more happy, Stormy or your Dad! Lots of love, Debbie and Hollydog

  4. Thanks for the wonderful hug, sweet Stormy!! You are a REALLY good hugger!!

    AKA "Moms"

  5. You are brilliant, Stormy, brilliant!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  6. oh lovely pics of Beautiful you and your handsome Dad Stormy!

    And thank you so much for explaining GOLF in so few words.


    I have one question, well you know me, after all this years, I am a most questioning and confused dog, but you are so knowledgeable about Stuff, so I am positive you can answer this one.

    I am worried about your friend Kat's mum. Does she work with the Giant Cow?

    After all she talks about her ....and I quote here...."my mom's coworkers".

    Is she really working with the Giant Holy Cow you saw the other day?

    Boy, this blogging reading is confusing for a dog like me who is trying to learn....

    I am sure you will let me know the answer.....?

    love and licks, Marvin xxxxxxx

  7. Nothing like a Siberian to make things clear!

    Thanks, Stormy and you looked real cute with your Dad! By the way, where did you get your Dad? I don't have one and I might like to pick one up wherever you get them.


  8. Stormy...you are so very smart!! Non-Golf...I will tell my Daddy about it!


  9. Hi Stormy,

    That's really a wise idea! You are so smart. We love seeing your dad's happy smile as he hugs you. We also love the photo since even you look so happy too.

    You guys are so lucky to have such loving and caring pawrents! Weeeee

    -Fudgie, Princess & the Piappies

  10. Hi Stormy
    Well that all makes perfect sense to us.
    Your Dad is looking very happy staying right at home with you.

    Hey Stormy,
    Wow! That's really GReat insight. Our dad says to tell you he would've loved to have had this information years ago. Evidently his philosophy has always been to hit the ball the most; which is evidently wrong. He says that other advantages of non-golf over golf are: it costs less to play non-golf than golf, you don't need atee time to start a game of non-golf, it's usually a controlled environment when you play non-golf as opposed to being exposed to the elements (rain-wind-snow-sleet, etc), in non-golf the other participants don't usually criticise your swing or club selection, and you don't have to buy all the other non-golf player's a round of beers for winning and hitting the ball the most times.
    The photo's of you and the dad are the best reason to play non-golf.

  12. Thanks for the lesson. I am going to go and find somebody not to golf with right now.


  13. We agree Storms you all win if you stay home with Mom. You probably get a lot more play time with her..

  14. That was a great lesson Stormy and makes such good sense! Your dad looks very happen with the lesson too - wonder if he'll still be happy once the weather is warm and the grass is green? Hmmm. You'll have to let us know if he flunks out of school sometimes.

  15. Hee! Hee! Stormy - I like your golf philosophy!

  16. That is positively brilliant, Stormy! You are so clever!

    By the way, my dad walked past the computer as I was reading this post, and he said that you look BEAUTIFUL!


  17. Hi, Stormy!
    That is the best golf lesson I have ever had!
    Happy Saturday!
    Kisses and hugs

  18. Not golfing with Dad sounds like a brilliant way to spend an afternoon!


  19. Great lesson. Love the pics of you with your daddy!

  20. Hi Stormy!
    Thanks for the tips! Dad-ster used to play golf too but these days..no more.
    Great pictures!! Nothing like family time!!


  21. oh we had never thought about that idear
    you are so smarticles

  22. Not playing golf is awesome! :)


    PS...thank you for thinking of us today!

  23. WOO WOO Stormy

    You are the smartest Sibe we know! Thanks for this great lesson - Now Mom knows she doesn't even have to learn how to golf because she has us!

    Thor and Marco Polo

  24. I should pass that along to my grandpa! He's obsessed with that silly game!


  25. Hi Guys,

    One golfer in the house is enough! That's what we tell mommy!

    Riley and Star.

  26. Woo - that hazard on the 18th hole is pretty tough - chuckling (and we loved the announcer).

    By the way, our hu-dad thought the point of golf was to ride in those carts and drink beer. And he said he can drink beer at home and be with us. So sounds like he had long adopted your golf strategy before going to your class. Every now and then, he gets smart on his own.

  27. BOL..Stormy, we love your idea on the golfing thing!

    Might do a bit of that ourselves very soon! :)

    We hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!

  28. Sibes are so smart. Such wisdom!

    i love the hazzard on the green from your other post! keep up the hazzards!
