Not Flippin' Invited! [NFI]

On a serious note, we wish to send our thoughts and prayers to all the people and animals hurt by the devastating monster storms that have been pounding the Southern and South Eastern States of America. It is distressing seeing and reading about the damage and deaths occurring. All are in our hearts and prayers.

Hoping the storms end and the people and animals can heal. {Yes, that is the moon popping up above the trees.}

No, I am not pouting. I was NFI so I just need to be alone for a bit.

There will be a glaring omission in the guests invited to the Royal Wedding of Prince William of Wales, K.G. and Miss Catherine Middleton today, 29 April 2011. Me. In what is going to be known as the snub of the Century, I was Not Flippin’ Invited [NFI] to the Royal Wedding. I am just woofless from mortification. How could they not invite me? As an Alaskan Malamute, the most powerful working dog in the World, and a venerated member of the ancient Mahlemuit Tribe, I am more dignified than any of the Foreign Dignitaries they did invite. Also, considering I am, in my estimate, approximately 7,625,987,415,847,698,224,658,587th in line to the throne, I feel an invitation was definitely warranted. But, I was not NFI!

One of the culprits of my being NFI? {Gemma Correll's Corgi Royal Wedding Tea Towel}

I have a sneaking suspicion that the Queen’s Corgis may have conspired with Princess Anne’s Bull Terriers to make sure my invitation never arrived. Why? Not sure. And since I believe one is innocent until proven guilty I will refrain from making judgments and accusations. But you must admit, it is very questionable as to why I am not in London right now for the Royal Wedding yet the Queen's Corgis are running around like they own the Palace! Regardless as to the reason for my snub I wish Wills and Kate {I just know we would have been on a first-name basis!} a glorious lifetime together filled with happiness, laughter, and love!


Sir Peter Paul Rubens, The Wedding By Proxy Of Marie de’ Medici to King Henry IV, circa 1622-1625

The Charles V Tapestry depicting the Marriage of Charles V (1500-1558) to Isabella of Portugal (1503-1539), circa 1630-1640

Back to me...

Before realizing I was NFI to the Royal Wedding my human K was helping me put together my outfit. I was going to wear Scottish attire since I think I may be part Scottish. I, like the Scottish Highlanders, am known for my fearlessness and bravery, so it makes sense that I would have some Scottish blood running through my veins.

K's peeps will be waving these Jayhawk flags!

I may have been snubbed but K’s peeps {her sister and friend} are attending. Not the wedding, actually, but as two of millions who will line the streets to cheer on the Royal Couple. Per request, K put together two flags for her peeps to wave so that they will stand out from the crowd and be noticed. So, if you see either of these two Jayhawk flags, those are K’s peeps!

See what you are missing?

I wondered why *I* was not on the flags that K made for her peeps. I would be a much better flag than a Jayhawk. I had a long howl, with a few grrrrrs I am ashamed to admit, with K about it but she could not give me a satisfactory answer.

Paws crossed that I am invited to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee 2012.

Not being flippin' invited to the Royal Wedding has been a very humbling, and sad, experience. However, next year is Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee and I am hoping that an invitation arrives for me to attend. But I am not taking any chances. Corgis and Bull Terriers are now my new best friends. I’m just sayin’…

I can't flipping believe they did not invite you, Suka... you're right, must be a conspiracy between corgis and terriers. Btw, you look dashing in your Scottish attire. Hope you have better luck next year at the jubilee :)

Licks, hero

Remington said...

Yeah, my invitation is late in arriving also. We saw it on TV though. I am going to talk to Beth and see if I can have a wedding just like that when I get married.

Schnauzer Days said...

Suka, we weren't invited either and we just couldn't understand it! Now you've mentioned those pesky Corgi's it all makes sense! We may have to form a secret band to take action against these naughty dogs, we'll keep in touc.! Dex & Lou

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Horrors, Suka!!! We can't believe you weren't invited. It truly WAS a beautiful wedding but we think a few malamutes and huskies running along side the carriage would have been one more lovely touch.

We too are sad for all those who were hurt by the terrible storms. It also makes us worry about our (and your) upcoming month of May.

Rebecca said...

Yeah no invite here either. Leloo says it's NFF (not flippn' fair)! She also says those corgis are even more spoiled than she is, so NFF.

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

My tasty pal Rumblepurr khommented on FB that Kate's train was missing a Maine Coon -

I thought she needed some Siberian floof!

as fur the paws, *SIGH!*

PeeEssWoo: Mom did get some 'Clotted Cream Fudge' from Ginger Jasper's mum SO she had a piece or two of them with her khoffee!

Huffle Mawson said...

The Queen is coming to Australian in October so why don't you plan to come over here and visit then, Suka?

ra husky said...

Heya Suka! I know, can woo believe not a mally or huskerboo in the lot? blah blah blah dress, tiara, royal coach...Oh well, we will keep our paws crossed for woo and the Diamond Jubilee invite:)

Love the pics in the Scottish attire too! Play bows,


Oskar said...

I'm sure you will not be overlooked next time! The Scottish attire is wonderful.

Nubbin wiggles,

Jon Terry said...

Awww...how could they not invite you since you were all dressed up for the occasion! Nevertheless, you are a true brave part Scottish gentleman with a big heart and I'm sure the day will come where you would be there in the queen's palace afterall all things are possible, rite?

Mommy says you look dashing and handsome in that attire, so sweet of your human,K to prepare it for you.

Love ya,
Jon Terry

I can't believe how they left all of us dogs out.
I was quite upset when I didn't receive my invitation :(


Bailey Be Good! said...

Suka, you are too cute! Don't worry... I wasn't invited either... and that's OK with me. But I LOVE your outfit!

Woofs & hugs,


Peggy Frezon said...

You look fantastic in your Scottish outfit! I hope you celebrated in your own special way.

Teddy Bear said...

How dare they not invite some so amazing like you, Suka? You sure look handsome in your wedding attire.:) We should have our own pawty.

Joan said...

Jan said...

The royal wedding would have been so much flipping better if you would have been there!

The Thundering Herd said...

Totally flipping unbelievable. But we share your concern for all of people affected by this week's storms.

Amber-Mae said...

OH you should have been invited!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Could it be a Corgi Conspiracy? You know sometimes the Brits can be a wee bit clannish. Maybe you can invite Wills and Kate Stateside to see the sights and include all of our friends in Blangland who were slighted.

You DO look good Highland-style!

FiveSibesMom said...

Suka...how could they not invite you??? What were they thinking? And look just how dashing you looked in your wedding duds! Their loss, buddy! Love, love, love your pics with the hat. You are just so cute!

Tanner and Beth said...

I guess they must not like Golden Retrievers either because Mommy and I were NFI too! Oh, well, I don't think I would have liked flying anyway.

Puppy Kisses,

Holly and Khady said...

What? You weren't flippin' invited?? That is just so wrong! You are such a handsome boy, and you look so dashing in your Scottish attire that they have no idea what they missed out on!

I think that calls for some good ol' fashion Malamute squishing!


Kristin G. said...

Hi Suka!! It's super nice to meet ya! Thanks for swinging by Dogs Rock and checking out Zoe's new harness and collar. Don't feel bad about the wedding, as I was NFI either. How rude of William and Kate! What do they think, they're Royals or something? ;) See ya soon.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

How did I ever miss this post?
Jeepers that is insulting that you were not invited and you were so duded up

FiveSibesMom said...

Can't wait to see your Cinco de Mayo pic! Hmmm...a cat pinata...how clever...!

Chicco said...

Oh Suka!
I'm very sorry that you weren't invited!
Oh and i'm very sad to know the storm - disaster that happened.
But the images where you have the hat are very beautiful!
Woof, woof,


Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Thank you for the very kind words of welcome to my new brother...and the super nice things you said about our family! We so look forward to the day when we can meet you and K in person and howl together! Tell K momma had a good omen dream about her last night so she should expect good news coming her way.

Joan said...

Hey There Suka!
Just stoppin' by to wish you a wonderful weekend!
Tootles for now,
Joan & Little Janie

GRAÇA said...

I was very happy to be your friend and you are a man of bone and cascol suits you very well
I come to invite you to enter the contest that I'm promoting
Good weekend and ronrons Girlfriend

Bouncing Bertie said...

Hi Suka

You do look fine in your Scottish outfit. We think that the problem with your lack of invitation may be related to the Royal Family's apparent bad taste in dog breeds..

You are invited to visit me in Scotland any day, where, following yesterdays election results for the Scottish Parliament, it may well be that there will soon be an opportunity to attend the coronation of King Alex Salmond (leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party).

Toodle pip!

Happy Mother's Day to all.
