I think I'm in trouble.....

I know what you're all thinking, and NO, it's not ME!

The human man got in trouble. How, you ask? Well..........

A) He did something he wasn't suppose to; and
B) He told the human woman what he did. (big mistake)

On a recent morning run, dad got some really nice pictures of Sam at the park playground.

However, there is something very wrong with one of these pictures. See if you can spot it.....

Notice the lack of a red thing hanging from his neck in the picture on the right???

Yep. Dad took the leash OFF of Sam. At the OPEN, UNFENCED park!!!

Dad said he did it cuz Sam knows dad is the alpha, and that dad is in control. Ummmm, hello!!!! Given the chance I'm pretty sure Sam would run and never look back, regardless of what dad said, or how alpha he thinks he is! (isn't that why I was picked up out of a corn field?)

Mom was NOT happy, (to say the least), and she spent a good amount of time yelling at dad that he was never, ever, ever, to do that again! She said if he wanted to take that chance with HIS dogs, (Kona and Monty) that was his choice, but to never, never, ever, ever, do that with "her" dogs. (that would be Sam, me and Abby) I think the words "kill" and "divorce" were mentioned! Sam is her very special "son" and if anything ever happened to him (or any of us) cuz dad was STUPID and let him off his leash for some pictures (regardless of how good they are) I'm pretty sure dad would be finding a new home without us! We are mom's "children" and loss of us due to intentional stupidity is completely unacceptable. (can I just say DUH!)

Sam thought it was pretty funny that dad "trusted" him not to run away. Here he is laughing hysterically at the whole situation.

Well, the good news is that dad learned a very important lesson and has promised to NEVER let any of us off leash in an open area ever again.

It's a good thing mom loves us enough to get really mad and upset over our potential "loss" that she would stick up for us so much! Too bad ALL humans out there aren't more like her!

I'll post more of Sam's "freedom" pictures tomorrow.

(feeling the love)

From your story it sounds like dad is not so much the alpha in the house--just like mine! The ma ape runs the show (and thank goodness, right? Someone's gotta look out for us.)

Hey Holly,

Humans have some funny rules dont they. Mine fight about the silliest things too. Its a good thing that us dogs are secretly running the world, other wise we wall would be in a real pickle wouldnt we:-)

Luv Chuxy

I meant "We would all be in a pickle" - stupid small keyboards - when will they invent paw-boards, sheesh!

Holly and Sam... Yes, I agree... no Siberian's off leash in an unfenced area! Second... How the heck did he manage to get into the slide? There is no way that you could get me inside that thing..
Hugs, Sitka

Hey Holly! Our dad know first hand how your mom feels. One day after a run at the park he figured we were all tired out so he didn't put on our leashes when we got home. He told us to go in the house but instead..WE BOLTED! There's a highway about 150 yards from our house and of course that's right where we went. Stopped traffic! Luckily we were fine. Dad said something about heart failure. So no more off leash in unsecured areas! Good plan dad. We sure would like it if you would come visit us at our new blog. We have been reading about all your adventures for a while now. Belly Rubs for your WHOLE pack!! Tasha & Eva.
P.S. We don't think Sam is a spaz. We think he's just a happy puppy!

Woo! Those ARE really great pix of Sam - I can't wait to show Amber. But I saw the problem right away! What was Sam THINKING, letting your dad out without a leash!?!?? We Northern Breed types MUST have our bipeds on lead at ALL times!
woo. I'm glad your dad didn't run off or anything.

IndyPindy said...

Ohhhhhhh, Holly, my mom just gasped and started jumping up and down when she saw Sam without a leash! She said some bad words. She sounds like she's a lot like your mom. If your dad ever does it again my mom will be glad to call your house and help your mom yell at him! All it takes is a squirrel, bunny, cat, or another dog and woosh!

Holly said...

Wally - dad has a saying about mom - "don't poke the bear" cuz he knows what will happen, especially when it concers US!

Charlie - dad just isn't as familiar with how Huskies and Mal's are when it comes to running. Mom is sure trying to educate him though.

Sitka - he won't tell me how he got in the slide, he said it's his secret and he won't share with me!

Marvin - Sam is laughing cuz he knows dad is just fooling himself if he thinks HE is the alpha instead of Sam.

Tasha and Eva - heart failure is right!! Holy cow, how scary! I promise to stop over to your blog! Thanks for checking mine out!

My darling Dave - humans....they just can't be trusted, and goodness knows their brains don't function properly all the time!

Indy - absolutely!!! That's EXACTLY what mom kept trying to get across to him. It's a good thing the human woman is SO much smarter than the human man!


MaPaw said...

We get a lot of Huskies in rescue who are found wandering. Those are some very good pictures though.

Macie-Malechai said...

Pretty sure our lady would KILL our man if he did that! We're very glad Sam didn't try to make his great escape! He knows he's got a good home, smart dog!

IndyPindy said...

Holly, you should show the latest post on my blog to your human man!

Holly said...

Magnum - that would also be how I got HERE!

M&M - as brainless as he is, yes, I think he knows he's got it pretty good here. I sure know it!!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

You know, human men don't seem to understand that they should pretty much ask the human women before they do anything. If your dad did that, then he wouldn't have gotten in trouble. I can kinda sympathize with him though. Kat beats me up a lot. Maybe human women aren't too different than canine women.


PS. Those pictures are great!

Hi Holly,
Your Dad is sure lucky that he only got yelled at, my Mom would freak out and my dad would be hurting. My mom and dad had a neighbor once that had a Husky and they let her off her chain and she ranaway after awhile and they never saw her again. So happy Sam didn't run. Puppy Kisses, Sooky

If that happened here there would be h-e-double chop-sticks to pay. We're talking a trip to the ER for sure.
