Ask Cloud


Hello, furiends! It's time fur Ask Cloud.

My dear furiend Max asks, WHEN are you going to upgrade to a CAT chaser?

Max, I really can't see upgrading any time soon, because it's technically impossible fur me to CHASE A CAT. You'll understand when you read my reply to 'You Know Who'...

Tank want's to know, how did I get to be so smart?

Tank, it's no secret how gosh darned smart us dawgs are. In my case, blogging, writing poetry, and strategizing squirrel skirmishes give my noggin all the brain pushups it needs to stay fit. Thanks fur the compliment, dude!

Twix asks, What would you do with one of those tree rats once you caught it?

Well Twix, I plan to grab him by the back of the neck so the little twerp can't bite me. After that, I'm pretty much going to play it by ear. There are so many possibilities - I could shake him, toss him, jump on him, paw him... Maybe even take him out fur a drink after, if he turns out to be a nice enough fellow and forgives the whole 'trying to break his neck' thing...
Thanx fur writing, Twix

The incomparable Miss Ali Zophia is wondering, "Since Max and Khyra seem to think you should Chase cats, if you were to corner me, what would you do to me? or Boomer?

Now Miss Ali, I have one reason and one reason ONLY to run up to a cat... (and please note - if a cat sees me run up to it, and decides to run away from me, the CAT is the one initiating the so-called chasing, NOT me!) it's because I want to PLAY wiff you guys!!! I always stick my butt in the air, wag my tail, give a friendly bark, and do a little dance around the kitty... It's not my fault that you guys can't figure out I'm saying "LETS PLAY!!!" As a species, you cats really need to work on your communication skills. In fact, you might not even understand what I'm saying right now...? I will try to talk your language then: I will sit down, make that weird growly sound in my throat, hold my tail still, blink my eyes slowly, and practice looking 'disdainful'... heeheehee! Thanks fur writing Miss Ali, it's always so lovely to hear from you. And don't furget everyone, to check out Ali's column on Tuesdays. It's more fun than a bathtub full of squirrels!

Well, that's all fur Ask Cloud this week. Mom is thinking about changing it to every other week, or once a month, at least fur a while. (She's super busy until Christmas.) But feel free to leave a question anytime, and I'll answer it in the next Ask Cloud segment.

I luv you guys!

And remember:
~Do your part, bark at a squirrel!

Hey there Cloud
You explain yourself soooo beautifully, but now that I know that you want to 'play' with the kitty, Im having other thoughts in my mind...Im just imagining you with your butt in the air and the squirrel looking confused. (Have you tried that strategy with the squirrel yet?)
Hah! What a funny post! You sure are a funny doggie. We love you lots and we saw lots and lots of your 'Cloud-types' at our walk yesterday, but none of them REALLY looked like you.
Well send our love to your mom too!

Another excellent post Cloud. I think you may actually be more prolific than I am... no wait, that's not possible. You ARE quite talented however and obviously not just another pretty face. Woof.

I need to teach you the fine art of cat pursuit. ;)

I finally saw a cat last week. He didn't seem too interested in me, so I just said hello and went on my way!

You must be getting a lot of questions and your answers are always very thoughtful! Keep up the good work!

The OP Pack said...

Great answers, Cloud. We have a silly cat on our street who always walks along behind his owner as the owner walks his two pugs. We say he is silly because he tries to do the same thing with us - not a good idea.

Woos, the OP Pack
