Dumb Gate!

Did I mention how I hate gates? I don't know why Mom thinks we need them. I did the typical Siberian stuff which is required by the Siberian Behavior Manual and either jumped over, knocked down, ate, or broke the traditional "baby" gates. They don't call em "baby" gates for nothin ya know. So Dad went and built a gate for the kitchen. This one's pretty darned near Sibe proof I'd say. That means....it works. Mom doesn't use it too much anymore. Baking day is one time that she does. DARN! I'm hoping someday she'll forget. There oughta be a law against this. Just look at what's on the table:

Biscuits! And do they smell great or what?! Any self respecting Siberian would have to taste test right? Well - just look at this:

This is just not fair! She expects me to sit here, see them, smell them, and be content. Women!

Echo, you are so right!!! That woman is cruel and totally unfeeling. I feel your pain, bro... Dang, those biscuits look good. My mom never bakes me anything, do ya think your's would send mine the recipe???? I think gates are dumb too. I just jump over mine, HeHeHe!!
Love ya, Hope

That is too bad, Echo. Did you try tap dancing while wooooing?

Holly said...

That's just not right! Samuel and I like to lay on the kitchen floor when mom is making dinner, whether it's for the humans, or for us. She has learned to just step over us! THAT is excellent training of a human!

Woooooooooooooo! Those look SO good! Why would your mom try to keep you away?!?! Is there someone we can report this cruelty to? You neeeeeeeeeeeeeed those cookies. All of them! Really.

Did you get to eat some later? I hope so! That is terrible that she wouldn't let you in the kitchen to help!

Hi Hope - You really should get your boy to make them. They're very easy.

Magnum - Is that how you got all those bagels from the bagel lady??

Holly - Yeah, usually Mom lets me stay in the kitchen. She always has to step over me when she's cooking dinner but she just doesn't trust me when the biscuits are cooling. I don't know why!

Hi Dave - I thought about reporting her for cruelty to Siberians but I figured if I did she'd get mad and I wouldn't get any more biscuits.

Hey Steve - Yep! We got the biscuits later. She's good at sharing.

Hi, Echo. Shiloh here. Do you practice the "head tilt" and the "raised paw" when you want something? I do and boy does it ever work. I go around to everyoone at doggy school and do this - and they say, "Aaaaawwww, look at those sweet blue eyes," and then they give me treats! It helps that I am the only one with blue eyes there.

Boy, those cookies look really good (insert head tilt and lifted paw here).....

Woo Echo! I found your blawg from Steve and Kat's page. Nice meeting you! Yes, I hate looking at the woman from the otherside of the gate. I hope you will check out my blawg!
Hugs, Sitka
