Puplick Service Announcement

Summit here with a message for all of my furry, four-pawed friends! Be careful what you lick when the temperature drops.

It was a brisk 7 degrees last evening and we were anxious to get into the house for the night. When Dad brought us in, Mom noticed that Kiana's front legs were "pink"! She sent everyone to their crates or "rooms" so she could look her over good. She wiped Kiana's legs with her hand and discovered that they were wet and frozen...and still pink. She got a paper towel and rubbed her legs and some of the pink came off. Hmmmm....I could just hear the rocks tumbling around in her head. She looked all over her chest for other red stuff. Well, finally she remembered that Kiana likes to "lick" her front legs. It literally got brighter in our house when the light bulb in her head went off and she said...."Hey, let me see your tongue!"

Well, much to her surprise this is what Kiana's tongue looked like:

Ouchie OWWWW!!!
Can you see those red spots there on her tongue?

"We" know what happened outside and aren't telling but, Mom thinks that she figured it out. Yup, the old warm, wet tongue on the cold, frozen, metal post. Mom's going to make her watch "A Christmas Story" tonight so she can see what happens to bipeds when they try that.

Please, if you or any of your pack mates think that this would be silly, fun or entertaining could lose your licker.

Stay safe and remember.....

Keep it furry!

HI Shelly,

I saw pictures of your at the Army of 4 blog and was positive that was you. I didn't know you lived in New Virginia now? I was confused by your Malamute? Do you still have your Sibes? I thought maybe I would see you at the show this weekend but not today?
Sorry to let you know that my Mom passed last Saturday after almost a year battling lung cancer. It was a blessing. JIll, Thor and Marco

ps- I linked to your blog! Thanks! JILL
