Miss Mikki, True Queen of the Pack

Howwwrrrooo everyone! Mikki here, and about time I finally get a turn posting on our blog. That little upstart Bama has been making everyone think she's the queen of our pack, but I'm here to set the record straight! I am the most beautiful, most graceful, best hunter, and obviously queen of our pack. I guess it's because I'm so gentle and generally shy that she's been able to get away with the ruse for so long, but I was meant to be queen of this pack, that's why the humans picked me, for dogs sake! It took me a long time to enforce my rule over the boys, then along comes the monster, always in my face, chewing on me, and generally wreaking havoc in our nice quiet den. Here is a picture of me in my best royal pose, don't I look majestic?

Sorry about the red eyes, they are a beawootiful shade of blue in person.
Mom & Dad decided the boys needed a girl in the house to teach them some manners, so they chose me, and I came home in July of last year. Stupid Chili didn't know I was supposed to be his new queen, and I was so little, that he refused to be ruled! The nerve!! Cracker was on his best behaviour from the beginning, he fell in love with my beauty at first sight, but not Chili. The first time we stopped on our trip home, mom & dad put on my new harness and leash and took me out with the boys for our first walk together, and you wouldn't believe what he did. He peed on my head! No, really, I mean, the nerve!! He apologized later, and said he was just expressing his opinion to mom & dad about having to share his stuff with a new pup, but honestly, did he think that was going to win my affection??? Then when we got home and went out to check out our backyard, HE DID IT AGAIN! I was so upset, I prefer to be very ladylike and graceful, that's hard to do with boydog pee dripping off your head! Mom gave me a nice warm bath though, and I got to cuddle with her in a nice soft towel, and she told Chili he was a "BAD BOY", and he never did it again, so I guess he got the message that that was no way to treat a queen. Here's a picture of me on my very first day home.

Don't I look like a queen in training?
I'm really a very girly girl, and hate to be dirty, it took mom & dad a long time to convince me that I really didn't need to wash my feet every time I got a drink of water, here is a pic of me washing my tootsies:

Well, guess that's it for now, a queen should keep her speeches short so as not to lose the interest of her subjects, (a lesson that monster Bama will NEVER learn), besides, I need to go get my beauty sleep,
Beawootiful dreamer:

You are very regal and very beautiful.

I wouldn't dare peepee on your head, even when you were a puppy.

You definitely look very regal. And super cute in your puppy picture! I can't believe he peed on your head. So rude!

Hey Mikki, you are one beautifull queen! Bama must know by now that you are royalty. That puppy picture of you is the greatest! Dad saw today that you had some flooding in your area the last few days. Did you get wet? We hope that you guys kept your paws dry! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

Bama said...

Tasha & Eva, it rained cats and well...cats for 2 whole days but we've been fortunate. We live toward the top of a fairly steep hill, the St. Johns river is down at the bottom of our street, about 2 blocks (hence the "River Hill Pack"), so all the water runs downhill, we don't have to worry about any flooding. However, since we refuse to let anything but sand grow in our yard, our outside time has been severely limited, and everyone has to get rubbed down and tootsies wiped off as soon as we come through the door.
Mom & Dad love it when it rains, they have SO much fun trying to catch, wipe & dry all 4 of us before we make a break for the furniture!
Playbows,
Mikki
