Seven Things Unique About Me

My wonderfully fun, sweet, inquisitive, and wise friends, The White Dog Siku Marie and her bro-fur (or is that fur-bro?) the Might Quinn, and my very cool, fun, charming, and caring friends, The Clampets: Ernie, Sasha, and Chica, have graciously presented me with the Versatile Blogger award. Thank you Siku Marie and Mighty Quin! And thank you Ernie, Sasha, and Chica! I am very honored by this fun award! As a requirement of this award I am to list seven facts about myself. So, without further ado, below are the seven things unique about me!

1. I love riding in the car and have been on three multi-state road trips.

2. I love playing at the dog park. I get along with every pup and have been known to play for an hour straight without taking a break.

3. When my human, K, first adopted me she was told I hated cats and could never be around them. K does not know how I was before she adopted me, but from the day she brought me home I have never harmed any cat or bird! Yes, I love to chase them and tease them, but it is all in fun!

4. I love being touched, especially on my back, and especially back scratches. I have been known to walk up to strangers and rub against them so that they would scratch my back and pet me.

5. Porgy, K’s parrot, has bonded with me and will follow me around and make sure no one or nothing hurts me. Porgy gets a lot of human food so I have trained Porgy to drop what he doesn’t want so that I can eat it. I will often sit near Porgy while he eats so that he can just drop the food right to me. K gets mad and tells me to let Porgy enjoy his food, but Porgy understands that I need human food too!

6. My favorite thing is during walks with K when she kicks a little ball or stuffy so that I have to run and catch it, with K running behind me to get to the ball or stuffy first. Once one of us catches up to it, K will kick it again and we run and chase it again. It is such a fun game! We do this routine until one of us tires out. OK, we do this routine until K tires out. Which is usually pretty quickly.

and, last, but not least,

7. I love when K brushes me and tells me what a loving and good boy I am. I love my Pack!

Thanks again Siku Marie and Quinn, and Ernie, Sasha, and Chica! This was a fun award because it allows each recipient to describe things that are totally unique to them. I love learning how different and unique every animal and human is; there is so much variety in the World! Wouldn't it be a boring, flat World if we were all the same and we all had to think the same and be the same? Variety breeds creativity, and creativity breeds beauty. I also believe, however, that we should keep some things about us close to our hearts, and not share everything about ourselves to everyone. I think having a mysterious air about oneself is very cool. Mystery breeds imagination. Also, if you gave away every part of yourself, then what is left to remain special about you, for you? So, I don't give away too much of myself, except during shedding season, when lots of my fur drops off and goes away. I'm just sayin'...

Suka, you once again demonstrate your wisdom in recognizing the importance of diversity in spirit and habit! Thank you so much for sharing these insights about yourself; I feel I have gotten to know you a little better today. The photos of you in the meadow are great as well.

It occurs to me that Porgy's relationship with you is a lot like Milo's beginning attempts with Quinn. It would be great if they could be friends but she has to stop the hyper insistent stuff where she might get hurt.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Forgot to add...Milo's perch IS right next to Quinn's sleeping blanket in the closet (his favorite spot)...only up higher.

You are really smart and cool,Suka!!
We learn a lot from you!

Today we are very sad because Tortuga has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was a very quiet unassuming member of our family (and a fascinating creature). Please send him godspeed and peace.

Protected by a parrot? I never would have guessed!

Congrats on the award!

It's always fun to learn things about my friends! I have a couple Sibe friends, Flurry and Aja who have a pack of birds for family! That would never work at my house.

Great job. We are so glad you are our friend. We loved finding out some cool things about you. Thanks for sharing & for visiting. You are special - not every pup can have a friend like Porgy that shares human food.
PeeEss: We also agree with Siku Marie,White Dog

Keiko (from Kitty Trio) said...

Congratulations on your awesome award! We really enjoyed reading about you. We love that you are really good friends with Porgy! How cool!
It is strange that sometimes shelter humans tell our new mums things about us that don't turn out to be true! When our Mummy adopted our sister Pricilla, she was told that she shouldn't live with other cats. But she is really happy and she is boss cat now! purrrrr

Hi Suka,
Thinking of you and missing your perspective. Hope all is well and K is home excited and recharged! Sending you positive energy and good thoughts.


Woof Suka,

Just stopping by to bark at you. Mom always laughs when she sees you in the tall grass. She says that you are answering your call of the wild. Hope all is well with you and your pack.

Desert Pups,

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Just wanted you to know I am thinking of you and missing your blog. I know K is still away and that it is hard for you to blog without her so I am sending you strong energy that will remind you that our friendship is not tied to computer access. Be well.


Woof Suka,

You can stop by for rabbit hunting anytime. Mom says to tell K good luck in California.

Desert Pups,
Toby, Norman, Keiko and The Ghost of Scuba.
