Why are you reporting this puzzle?

By popular request, I would like to introduce all of you to our latest little bundle of joy, Mumik, (pronounced Mum-ick), which in her natural tongue means… well, I don’t speak Klee Kai so I have no idea what it means, but I think it means “bug eater”… or maybe “I pee on rugs”. She is a Klee Kai and though she looks like a Siberian Husky, she is a very diminutive little girl standing only about 15” tall and weighing about 20 pounds. And you are right Kathleen, Mumik should be very smart, so Killer and I have both enrolled in her non-linear geometric monopoly class and her garbage disposal anatomy class. But I am having a problem. I think it odd that I can find a myriad of flavors of dog food, including buffalo, bison, sweet potato, salmon, lamb, chicken, skunk, hedgehog… but nowhere can I find blubber flavored dog food for our little Alaskan girl. Well, I have to run. Mumik is holding a singing class in the backyard and our neighbors have no sense of humor… especially at 1:00 in the morning.

Thank you, John (pronounced John)! This is one adorable dog! I'm not well-versed on dog breeds, but I am sure I've neve heard of Klee Kai - I checked... Mai Tai, Paul Klee, Klingon... nope, no Klee Kai. It seems you've had her over a year - since she's built for cold weather, how does Mumik like Arizona?

I understand the frustration with dog food - what canine or cat eats sweet potatoes? I wrote Friskies and asked that they make lizard and squirrel flavors for cats, but no response. I will follow up and see if they can add garbage can and toilet bowl for the pooches...

As to the other, everyone is just too damn sensitive (I include my own pouty self). I wasn't sure what to say since people usually just get me deleted... I come here to get away from trouble, not stir it up. Life is too short - if I wanted to piss people off, I'd have gone into politics.

rswestley

mpp, here is the puzzle I alluded to on your “Whoa, dude... nude beach” puzzle you posted about a week ago... I had forgotten you had a problem with ‘the missing link’ (aka me). Hopefully this will negate the need for links, puzzles in Dutch and those that pee in other people’s Cheerios. I’ll be back, but I am currently attending a mandatory ‘sensitivity’ class as per the LGBT community :-(

@morepiecesplz

These are great!!! Don't need the puzzles - just the humor! (Ok, need the puzzles, too.) ; ))))
(Mumik is absolutely adorable, rw!!!)

rswestley

Bev, you must have me confused with a bowl of Frosted Flakes.... "Theyyy'rrrre Great!!" :-)

mackabroin

good on you bubble......LOL

Dear John,
I love you.....I think ,,,,,we all love you. Good humor...so good to be happy and joyful.
You da man!!!! Bev.

Bubble

You've hit the nail on the head, rw. Had my dna tested recently and, yes, I am a direct descendant of the BC Bubsquatch clan; you may have seen the photo of me running thru the woods in my winter coat.
My Scottish ancestors were part of the Loch Ness Monster group, so I have quite a mixed heritage.

The dna testing company returned my money and have invited me for a 'stay' in their 'vacation' labs near area 51, so I may be gone for a few days (*---*)

rswestley

Bub? May I call you Bub? Is Bubble short for Bubblicious?" or "Buddakan?" or "Attila the Bub?" Being Canadian, are you related to Bubsquatch or Bubfoot? If I may, I'd like to stick to Bub... a name I can spell and pronounce...

Bub, as an animal lover, I detest animal cruelty, so your insinuation that I may have inured Mumik hurts. I would never inure any of our friends in the animal kingdom (except maybe cows, chickens, salmon or other tasty treats). Bev? Yes, every night I used to sing my little Mumik to sleep... until the neighbors sent the S.W.A.T. to my house and had me de-barked... now the best I can do is gurgle Mumik to sleep. Robin, years ago my personality #3 made a pact with my pet unicorn and the fairies dancing on my lawn to never make things up, so if you suspect me of "stretching the truth" talk to personality #3... he's the one with the long nose. And Libby, Mumik thinks of shoes as being appetizers. Mumik's entrées would include the couch, the front door and my 7' stuffed Sasquatch I have hanging above our fireplace.

And lastly Bub, I love Canadian Bacon, the Canadian RCMP, Canadian sunsets and Canadian "eh?"s. So whether Canadians are fried, baked or sautéed, I love 'em all...

I had a dog that ate my shoes once - nice, expensive shoes (for me). I think Mumik has her beat!

mackabroin

me too john.......I just love this dog......which is why I don't believe you....lol

Oh, John
I love this pooch. Do you sing to her? :)) Bev.

Bubble

1) Well I totally believe you rw - you see the probem is, Mumik has been living in the house with you, and sharing your table and bed, so she's not inured to outdoor living and is substituting a couch for a sled as its so much more comfy and warm. All you need do is buy heavy duty outdoor gear and a whip, learn the language of 'mush' and you'll be well away. won't need the car any more.

2) Leave equal amounts of dog poop on your neighbour's porch on each side of your house and say you got bag too.

3) He's ganging up on us Robin, because we're Canadian, and we're all right.
4) My best friends all call me Blecch!!)

mackabroin

I don't believe you!!!

rswestley

Thanks Robin and bub (if that is too informal, can I call you Bub... or Ble?). Mumik is now well over a year old and she weighs an incredible... 25 pounds. She's a "miniature" husky so she will always be petite, but I doubt she will ever grow up. She is still pulling pranks on us, like putting green food dye in our shampoo and putting a burning paper bag of dog poop by our front door and ringing the door bell. She laughs hysterically every time we stomp on the bag to put out the fire. We can't leave anything within snout's reach... she has chewed up countless pairs of glasses, two or three remote controls and my Boeing 707 will never be the same. We have ordered doggie handcuffs and a doggie straight jacket from Amazon, but they haven't arrived yet. Ooops, gotta run... she just drug the living room couch into our backyard...

mackabroin

oh sorry john......I just realized this was posted awhile ago....and I thought I had seen her before??...duh on me!!!

mackabroin

wow john.......I am so sorry I wasn't here yesterday to greet mumik........what a doll.......he is so cute...and he will be a great asset to your home......wish I could give him a pat and a hug..thanks for thinking of me

Bubble

Mumik must be a big girl now and pulling you along in your sled during the winter.
Our Golden, Poppy chewed the entire garden up until she was about a year old. Rose bushes, (thorns were her favourite), gooseberry bushes, with delicious thorns, and rolled big stones around in her mouth to tease and horrify me. She lived to be 13 and half. You are probably now able to grow and keep stuff in the garden. :-)))

mackabroin

you both are so lucky john.......I wish I had this cutie.....I would love to give her a great big pat.....and I think you should tell the neighbors to move...lol

rswestley

Thanks ElenkaLen... behind those "smart eyes" lies a cunning and devious mind. Mumik is definately all female!

ElenkaLen

Beautiful and smart eyes♡♡♡

mackabroin

it will all be over soon john..........just wrap your winter woolies around the furniture legs for about a month.....lol....poor little guy..I bet he is hurting.....he is beautiful....I totally envy you....good luck with the teething

rswestley

Ah Ha! There you are Robin. I was just about to send out a search party to find you. An update on Mumik... we have had Mumik for 5+ months now and my wife and I are convinced she must have beaver, pack rat or Sasquatch in her gene pool. She chews on everything. Phones, remote controls, books, couches... nothing is safe when Mumik is on the loose. I don't know what the life expectancy of a Klee Kai is, but I think her expiration date is fast approaching. Thanks for stopping in Robin!

mackabroin

I have no idea when you posted this john,....but I love your "little bundle"......just a beautiful pup....makes me want another dog....lol........thanks for sharing with us....I am so glad that I popped in here.....robin

Ah, John
You are a trip.....I love you, but not as much as your Mrs. does. Keep us informed every now and again about Mumick.

jals

IF I read it Bobbie, I've forgotten it. lol
It's not a real song. It's a play on Roger Miller's You Can't Rollerskate in a Buffalo Herd.

I'm growing old, John, I'm not growing up.

rswestley

Judy, I see you traded your roller skates for oleander bushes. Well, we all have to grow up sometime... well, maybe not ALL of us...

pasta

I'm surprised you haven't read White Oleander. It was a true story, kind of creepy.

pasta

Very poisonous, Judy. I have never heard that song.☺

jals

I did not know oleanders are poisonous, but it reminds me of that song,
"Oh you can't hang your undies on the oleander bush, you can't hang your undies on the oleander bush, you can't hang your undies on the oleander bush, but you can be happy if you set your mind to it.
https://youtu.be/skFWsc_-i14

dustydog

She will be good at "reminding you" to pick things up, and the house will only need a quick vacuuming once a week! Such a helpful little dog she is!
Dusty (who eventually gave up trying to teach me to pick up.)

pasta

Be careful, oleander is poisonous, you might want to wash your undies before you wear them.☺

rswestley

Of course you are right Bobbie. We don't really need all that stuff. Now where are my socks and underwear? OH! I see 'em. They are over there under the oleander bush....

pasta

Aww, thanks john. You really don't need all that 'stuff' any way, you can play with the pooch.☺

rswestley

Judy, Bobbie, Bev, Dusty and anyone else that cares to listen... Mumik is alive and well and doing what she does best... keeping the house neat and orderly. If we leave anything small enough to wrap her teeth around (eyeglasses, remote controls, wireless mouse, DVDs, hair brushes) she tidies up the house by taking her new found "treasures" out to the backyard.... and the unfortunate new found "toy" meets an untimely death. Our backyard is quickly turning into a graveyard of trinkets and common household items. We now have memorial services 3 times a week. But she is also very cute and cuddly, so I doubt she will be leaving anytime soon. Another little face in a sea of cold, wet noses.

jals

I think he's too busy feeding all the "kids" to do updates. lol

pasta

Hi John, an update would be nice.☺☺

Hi John,
It's been, hmmm about two months now. How is your pooch? She is a cutie.

dustydog

Now how did I miss this one?! I must have been in a coma, or something! She is definitely a beauty! So happy that she could come to your "pack" to live! I have a hunch that she will be a totally delightful addition.
Dusty : )

lol!!!

rswestley

Kathleen... Mumik is fitting in great... great... just great. My wife enjoys her so much, I have now been relegated to sleeping on the couch. And yes, Mumik is very energetic (code word for pain in the a**). We have now hired three professionals, a retired Navy seal, a former kick boxer and the ghost of Muhammed Ali (he works the night shift) to keep an eye on Mumik 24/7. Her energy (remember the code word) makes her very mischievous (another code word for pain in the a**) and is always getting into trouble (code word for our house has been designated for demolition). But everything is going fine. The couch isn't toooo lumpy and I wear ear plugs to block out Mumik's snoring. But she is cute when she is shredding the furniture and devouring our books and that is the most important thing.... If you give me your address, I will drop her in the mail today

@RiverCity7

Hey, John, how is Mumik fitting in with her stepsisters and stepbrothers?
Bev showed us that she is very energetic and intelligent - a combination that can be tough on the human members of the clan! My brother's Australian Shepherd would herd him into the kitchen when it was time for him to be fed. There was no heel-nipping, but definite leaning/pushing on the human.
@rswestley

The breed was developed in Wasilla, Alaska, from the early 1970s to 1988 by Linda S. Spurlin and her family.[2] The breed was developed with Siberian and Alaskan Huskies, using Schipperke and American Eskimo Dog to bring down the size without dwarfism. She bred these dogs in private until she released them to the general public in 1988. Originally called the Klee Kai, the breed split into Alaskan Klee Kai and Klee Kai for political reasons in 1995. The breed consolidated as its current name in 2002. Though a relatively new breed the Alaskan Klee Kai has a rich history. They are extremely energetic and intelligent, and their northern heritage is evident in their appearance. In contrast to Siberian Huskies, which were originally bred as sled dogs, the Alaskan Klee Kai were bred as companion dogs. The Alaskan Klee Kai was officially recognized by the American Rare Breed Association (ARBA) in 1995 and by the United Kennel Club (UKC) on January 1, 1997.
Beautiful pooch. Is it a rescue.?

sparklightie

Hi mumik you are such a joy to behold - hope you are behaving so you don't get put in the dog box ♥

LibR1

So cute!

Charles still insists we will not have any more furbabies after these three are "gone". I have begged, bargained, cried, and had others tell him we really will need one to no avail. I guess, when the time comes, I'll have to go into a deep depression and get our doctor to tell him I really need one . . . (he's a friend, too, so I think I could convince him to do it and not tell).

gogogo

Thanks for introducing your newest family member, a little beauty, and thanks for puzzle, John. :-))

jals

So she's a little shy?
Glad to know you too, John!

firstdawn

Well I hope your joking about removing her pic. (Never know when you're serious)

6toedcats

Aww, but if she's in the witness protection program...

Hope to see her again when the heat is off! :)

rswestley

Thank you all for the kind and interesting comments, but at Mumik's request, I will be taking down this puzzle down shortly. Silly me, I didn't realize she was a member of the KKK (Klee Kai Klan) and federal authorities are looking for her. Thanks again for all of your comments... it's friends like you that keep me coming back to Jigidi... You are a wonderful bunch of people and very glad I got to meet all of you...

Thanks John for sharing your new addition with us!! :))

pasta

John, what a little cutie. I just love her, keep us updated on how she does, please. Thanks☼♥☼

This makes me laugh each time I watch it.
It's captioned "Alaskan Klee Kai talking and howling." There really are parts that seem like talking!
At one point the human starts the howling. lol
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6534bECBjwI

jals

You are right about her having to stay inside most of the time when it's so hot out, John. Ernesto, Ernie for short, prefers a nice block of ice. lol

TX94

Should have worded differently - I meant, ...in that I understood you used a breed name as guide for food, Kristi's 'eskimo' portion would dictate ...blubber. Dig? Kristi IS a 'talker; doesn't understand German, but readily responds to me in English. A barker, too; takes her guard duties seriously. If no strangers in view, cars using the road below us are loudly warned ...from our window!!! Has never ...howled.
It's amazing -to me, at least ... how *many* breeds are used to create a dif one. One used to come up with an AKK (yours) was ...American Eskimo.
Finally...last I heard, one life is all most of us are ..."allotted"; quite enuff for me. Enjoy whichever one you now ...occupy. ; )

rswestley

Dawn, it would hurt Mumik's feelings if I showed her your last comment... she doesn't talk, but she does have a lovely singing voice and the neighbors show their appreciation by throwing shoes at her

rswestley

Thank you all for the kind comments, but to be completely honest, I told my wife is she brought Mumik home I would have to have her committed for a psychiatric evaluation. Mumik was not a true "rescue" dog, but she was living in a home with 9 other dogs and the owner wanted to lessen the number of dogs to clean up after... so my wife generously offered to take Mumik away from the madness... and into our world of madness. And just as when you introduce any new dog into a "pack", it disrupts the "balance" and chaos replaces the tranquility... and Mumik is no exception. Our other kids are now "marking" their territories, squabbling amongst themselves, accusing us of favoritism and trying to monopolize the TV set. Within a week calmness will once again reign, but if you notice me commenting less, you will know one of my arms got chewed off.

And Lin, I was reading up about Kristi's ancestors and found that American Eskimos actually originated in Germany and were called a "German Spitz", and was renamed American Eskimo Dogs due to widespread anti-German sentiment during World War I.... so no need to run out looking for blubber for cute little Kristi, you can have a glass of red wine, share a schnitzel or bratwurst with Kristi and both of you can be in 5th heaven (I would say 7th heaven, but that would be getting a bit too close to the nine lives we have all been allotted)

And Judy, the heat will be a problem for a Klee Kai. We have an Akita Inu mix (Sandy) that has the same type of double coat that Mumik has and Mumik will undoubtedly become an inside dog during the dog days of summer. But the good news is that with between Mumik and Sandy, we should be able to start making dog hair pillows and dog hair clothes... and we will be RICH!!

Kathleen, keep an eye on Katie and try to limit her intake of cicadas. It has been clinically proven that a dog's overindulgence in the tasty cicada can lead to birth defects and she may have puppies born with wings, make a dreadful chirping sound and in great numbers, may ruin your neighbors crops. The research was funded by congress... I guess they couldn't find anything better to spend 16 kazillion dollars on...

Thank you all for your kind comments. I may not be around much today.... we will be having a "visitor" this afternoon.... the bug man cometh. It's a big deal because he is the only person that comes to visit us, so we will sit around sipping our wine and listen to his horror stories about the termite that ate Chicago

firstdawn

Is this breed talkers, like they show on Facebook? I remember hearing a dog howling from a far distance. The sound becoming louder and louder until a woman parked her car at the dog park. She said her husky does it every time she takes her to the park, howling with excitement. My dog starts whining and getting excited as soon as I pass the first dairy farm. Since I live in a city, I think she associates the dairy smell with the dog park. It's about a 25 minute drive out in the country to reach the park in a town close by.

TX94

FINE dog! I had a friend who rescued an Alaskan Klee Kai, too; years ago. Must say...altho 'Alaskan' is included in the name -they're related to the Alaskan Husky, as you well know- blubber really not be a required food ingredient. ; ))) My Kristi is an American Eskimo -distant cousin to yours- but, no way in HELL would I have sought ....blubber to include in her meals. ; )
Poor baby's confusion is clearly shown in the pic; love/gentleness/good food = a primo-o start.
WAY TO GO, John!

jals

Oh John,
She's adorable!!! She will be a shedder but they have such sweet natures! My son had an Alaskan Malamute and then bred her with a Husky. He kept one of that litter. She's been gone a couple years but he still has the offspring. Just love attention.
Oh and they love to howl. It cracks me up every time! (well maybe not at 1 a.m.)

Was she a rescue? Who would give her up???

Thanks for the tag, I love her!!

6toedcats

Thanks much, rswestley, for posting this sweet addition to your family. I had to skip the cyber cigar, but am glad you gave your fun news and Mumik a wider scope! She's a gorgeous, petite little girl. And as always, I certainly chuckled at your description! :) May you all be very happy together. ☺

My dog liked cicadas. On morning walks, when the asphalt was warmer than the air, cicadas would lie (sit?) on the pavement and Katie would lunge for them and munch. Usually the insect had perished but sometimes there was a whirring sound, if you can imagine what I mean.
Wouldn't raw salmon work - not that canned stuff?
BTW: she looks sweet.

junglejim

A "bug eater" you say, does that mean you will be feeding her roaches?
