I Love My Dad!

My dad is very cool! Here are a few reasons why;

He takes all 5 of us for a walk/jog every morning when he gets home from work! Well, he actually has to make 3 different trips, cuz he takes me and Monty first, then comes back and takes Samuel, then finally the gimpys, Abby and Kona (Kona's a gimpy simply because he's slooooowwwwww).

He also takes the time to brush us with that evil Furminator! Well, we may not like it, but it really is good for us to get rid of all that fur when it starts to get really hot outside! And, since getting rid of some of that fur makes us cooler, I guess it's ok....for now.

He is also in charge of yard clean-up and maintenance. That way we always have a nice fresh yard to do our business in. And, with 5 of us, that's a lot of business! He's still trying to talk mom into helping with that. But she said if she has to do it, she'll just hire one of those companies to do it!

Dad is also great to nap with! We all try to take turns with him. Sam is usually the one to hog the bed though. The rest of us usually just take turns laying around the bed. Here is a good picture of most of us snoozing with dad while he naps on the couch. That's Samuel helping hog the couch!

Here I am getting some much needed attention and snuggling with dad while he tries to feed Monty. Everydog else is hanging out to see if they can lick the bowl when he's done. Especially Samuel, he's quite the vulture! See how he's eyeing the bowl?

Dad also likes to buy mom cool Husky/Malamute stuff. Like the license plates, and Husky stuffies (which she puts on shelves where we can't get them).

Well, I just wanted to say what a great dad I have, and how much I love him. And you can tell, he sure loves all of us too. So, HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all our dads, who give us the love and attention we all certainly deserve.

(here's to you dad, you ROCK!)

Aww.. Holly. What a special post! You do have a great dad! I hope that you all had a great day together. Hey, who is missing in the first photo? Is it Monty or Kona?
hugs beautiful,

Holly said...

Hey Sitka, Monty is the one missing. He's the most "unsocial" of us. He's usually off on his own somewhere else. Well, unless there are treats being handed out.

I hope you had a great day with him!
Have a good night

Holly - that was such a lovely post about your Dad.

He is certainly a very good man to do all that work for you and your family.

He must be very fit too, with all the dog walking he does!

love and licks, Marvin xxxx

What an awesome Dad you have - happy Father's Day to him, one day late!


The Daily Echo said...

Hey Holly - looks like maybe Santa Paws should bring Dad a bigger sofa! He sure does look comfy though. Your Dad sounds like a keeper....just like mine.

Lee :) said...

What a great family you have. That was an extra special post you did for Holly's Dad. He sure does a lot of things around the house. Hope you all celebrated Father's Day in a blissful manner. :)

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Your dad sounds really great! I'm glad you have such a good dad who cleans up after you and walks you and stuff. (I won't say furminates you.)


The Army of Four said...

I wondered who was missing, too, Holly! I love that picture - actually ALL of the pictures! In that second one, it looks like yo and Abby are holding paws - or like you were nudging her to tell her something!
Tail wags - and a special wag to your dad!!!

Tasha & Eva said...

Your dad sure is one busy guy with all you pups to take care of! Plus your mom, too!! Hope he had a relaxing Father's Day. We really like your new license plates. Those are VERY nice! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

The Husky in the Window said...

Hi Holly. Nice to meet you. Your Dad is cool that there are so many of you.I know my Mom wants a malamute puppy, but my Dad says our house is not big enough. My Mom has a special place in her heart for mals, she just can't help it. I hear that Cubby was 150 pds and loved to sing the woo woo song. My mom laughs b/c I don't woo woo, and I have a terrible singing voice. But I do the husky talking thing really well. How do all of you'all get along? Missy, my older sister that was here before tolerates me. She does not like it when I try to play with her tail. But it's like a stuffie, I can't help it.
Nice to meet you.
