Sasha - Our Siberian Husky
Sasha wasn't in a talkative mood. We'd taken her to the dog park so she was tired and wanted to be left alone.
Have you ever tried to get your kid to do something on cue? . . . so, you understand.
Siberian Huskies are usually very friendly dogs. And they can have different colorings. But, I think they are all beautiful. Of course, I've always been an animal person.
We have one frog, two dogs, and a cat - right now. But in the past, we've had iguanas, hedgehogs, horses, birds and more. So, maybe I'm not the person to ask, but I say animals are very smart - well...some of them are. Just like people, some are smarter than others. And, some are nicer than others.
People can be grouchy, anti-social and quiet but, if you find those same traits in a dog, its thought of as "dangerous".
I say it's all in the personality. . . of the person and the pet.
And, I say Siberian Huskies talk. Sasha even picked out her own name. I wish I had filmed it but - sadly - I didn't.
My daughter, Kara, wrote down ten different names, each on a separate piece of paper then she spread them out around the floor.
We all stood and watched as Sasha went up to one particular piece of paper. She picked it up in her mouth. Kara read the name.
Jake didn't like it. He said it sounded slutty. So, Kara - wanting to please her brother - put all the names back in a circle and sat Sasha in the center of the circle. We watched as she walked back over to that same piece of paper and peed on it. That was it.
Now, she's slutty-Sasha. We cut it short: Sasha. But...she does love attention.
