7 Weird Things About Us

We were tagged by Quincy and Summer and Prince of Team Husky to play this tag game. We have to tell you seven weird things about us.


1) Canyon sleeps on Mom's feet. Dad doesn't like a dog on his side of the bed. Sky and I spread out and take up too much room, so we aren't allowed on the bed. The only place left for Canyon is on Mom's feet. Me, I think it's because he's a spoiled brat and Mom let's him get away with it.

2) Sky likes horses. We live in Amish country. Everytime he sees a horse and buggy go by (we usually see about 15 per day), he gets excited. He used to scream like a chainsaw and try to break loose from his leash or jump over the six-foot fence, but then he got a "come or else" collar and that taught him not to get so excited about it.

3) Most toys are immortal in this household. We have some stuffies which were bought when I first came to live with Mom and Dad after they adopted me from MaPaw seven years ago. They just don't get destroyed (Sky did go through a short phase of doing this, but only with dollar-store toys). Sky and Canyon will fight over toys and bones, but they don't play tug-of-war. They lay on the floor and bark at each other with the object of desire on the floor between them. Whomever barks loudest wins, but even when Sky wins, he lets Canyon have it.

4) I yell at Canyon every time he comes near me. My arthritis makes stairs hard enough; I don't need the Annoying One jumping on me while climbing them.

5) I'd make a good boxing referee. I let the play-fights between Canyon and Sky go on for a little while and then I break it up. Whenever their playing gets too loud and out of control, I step in between them and push them apart.

6) Canyon is scared of most people. There are a few people he sees often enough that he is OK with them. Most of the time, he just backs away slowly with his ears down and his tail between his legs when he meets someone new.

7) Shhh... This is a secret, I'll only share with my blogging friends. Mom and Dad think I can't hear anymore. I just pretend because I'm the queen and I can do whatever I want.


One final runner-up for this list. Canyon is stupid. He doesn't know how to act innocent after destroying something. This week, Mom found one of her sweaters, which had been neatly folded in the closet, laying on Sky's bed (see he tried to get Sky falsely accused) with a large hole in it. When Mom asked Sky what happened, he wagged his tail. When she asked Canyon, he cowered, put his ears back and tail between his legs, and hid under the kitchen table.

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Wooo! These were great! We loved learning more about our friends! Tsk Tsk Canyon... you do need to act more innocent! And Kelsey Ann, Tia agrees with you (being the queen in our home), you can do what you want to when it comes to listening to the parents :)
Hugs,
Sitka

happy said...

That's really some interesting facts. Gee Canyon, you need to practise more!

Amici said...

Well, Canyon at least you are honest. :) It looks like it was a nice sweater. Maybe you can con your Dad into buying her a new one to make up for the one you chewed.

Shmoo said...

Very nice work. Its a shame you weren't able to return the ripped sweater to where it belonged so the human woman would have worn it to work without realizing it had that big wonderful hole in it.

The Army of Four said...

Woo. Canyon! Stormy said we should never act guilty - that way, the bipeds don't know who did something! Really. You gave yourself away, dude!
Oh, and Kelsey Ann. I have a very serious hearing problem, confirmed by my vet. It's called "see-lective" hearing and it's terrilbe. I can't hear Mom or Dad call me, but I can hear a banana being peeled from the other side of the house. Crazy, huh? Maybe that's what you have.
Luv,
Dave

The Army of Four said...

That should say "terrible". Sorry. Woo.

Dave

One of the pack said...

You guys have lots of fun. The horse and buggy is pretty cool. 15/day? We never see horses. Mom goes out to the country and comes back smellin' strange, but she won't take us with her. Something about us not knowing how to act around animals she calls donkeys, burros and mules.

We love that you cannot tell a lie, but maybe laying off the human clothes would get you more of what you love?

Way to go mothering the pack, Kelsey Ann!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. We're headed outside to wrestle.

The Daily Echo said...

Oh Canyon - buddy - you need Echo Boot Camp to hone your "not guilty!" skills. Very interesting facts!

Hello Kelsey

I did hear you aroorooing across the Atlantic. It is not important how much you hear when you have lots of other fine senses.

I see ponies and traps go past too, but I just look at them and sniff.

Love Pippa

Summit the Super Mal said...

Woo there Kelsey~
Woo and Kiana must have gone to the same "Fun Police" school together. She is the one at our house that watches and then rushes in and garbles out a message to settle down. I guess somebody has to do it though.
Canyon...I actually think that you tried on the sweater and when you heard someone coming tried to take it off too quickly and accidently tore it...next time leave it on. They'll be laughing too hard to be upset with you.
Later All...

Thor said...

Khool facts! Canyon, to look innocent, you just have to give your human a big grin and wag your tail so hard your whole body moves. Tossing in some khisses works really well, too!

Woos,
Thor

wildcatsthree said...

That's a great list Kelsey Ann. We agree Canon needs to learn how to bluff his way out of being blamed. If you react guiltily, they don't know who to blame for the deed. that's our motto

Tasha & Eva said...

Kelsey,
I have issues with stairs too though I don't yell at Eva when she stands at the top and won't get out of my way. I let Momma do it for me. I think Eva is like Canyon since she is scared of people too. Even our neighbor Jeff who has been to our house a zillion times.

Kathryn and Ari said...

This post had me in stitches! So many of these entries could have been written by Ari, especially the refereeing (we call her the hall monitor here). Birds of feather. It must be in your DNA!

Simba said...

Lots of interesting things about you. Toys that last forever, never going to happen here.

Interesting facts to know about you. I best like the one about the hearing. Our mommy calls in "selective hearing." Our hume-bro, Josh, does that a lot.

I can't help but laugh about the sweater :) One of my cats also has problems with covering up his "naughties." He feels guilty and pouts. He also "tells" on the other cats when they do something wrong LOL!
