Turbo Cuts Off 'Stupid' CBS Interview


NEW YORK (Dog Press) - Presidential candidate Huricane Akara Turbofire abruptly ended a "60 Minutes" interview aimed at introducing him to U.S. audiences, dubbing it "stupid" and a "big mistake" and refusing to answer questions about human celebrities.

Before the CBS news show interview even began, Turbo called his press secretary "an imbecile" for arranging the session on a busy day.

"I don't have the time. I have a big job to do, I have a schedule," Turbo woo'ed through a translator before the interview began. In English, he added: "Very busy. Very busy."

In the interview conducted earlier this month and aired Sunday night, he candidly discussed what he likes. But he grew frustrated when asked about his opinions on subjects like Britney Spears.

"If I had to say something about Ms. Spears, I would certainly not do so here," Turbo replied.

Before he broke off the interview, Turbo was asked about what he would like the American humans to know about him. "I want the humans to know that they can count on me," he said.

Turbo said he admired some humans' work ethic and the opportunities for advancement in the country, irrespective of class or background. But that there was still discrimination against non-humans.

Football Wrap Up


It's a mixed bag of results for the teams of humans who think they are huskies.

The Huskies beat Bulls, Warriors, and Knights. But they lost to Rams, Wildcats, Black Bears, and Rockets.

Still No Fun!


This morning I let my Human sleep in until the very generous hour of 4AM before I started practicing my Human Balance Beam routine. Look, as a candidate I am expected to be in top physical condition, not to mention that I'm training for the Furniture Olympics. So I thought that I was giving my Human a break by not walking on her until 4. But of course she had to get all stupid. She made me spend the rest of the night in my box at that point!

In other news, Roo Roo took the covers off of my Human this week during the night. We are all proud of her!

In other news part 2, pop in to Mary-Margaret O'Brien's blog. She lives in Southern California and she is reporting on the fire there. I think she should win the Puplitzer Prize for her reporting.

No Fun!


(Please note that this photo was not taken last night.) My Human is no fun. Which of course means that she is stupid. Last night she forced me to sleep in my box at about 3AM. She thought that I was being inappropriate. I thought it was a good time to walk all over her. I also thought it was a good time to yell at Meepie.

My Human thought differently!

So I had to spend the rest of the night in my box and Rooie had to spend the rest of the night in her box.

And that stupid Lex got to sleep near my Human!

But I did decide that my theme song is These Boots Were Made For Walking. But I've changed the lyrics:

This Tube's been made for walking, and that's just what I'll do.
One of these days this Tube is gonna walk all over you.

Meet The Beetle


My Human, who is not at all clever, thought up this photo all by herself.

So there was this stupid big beetle wandering around in our house for the last day or 2. None of us canines were interested in it. Sure, it attracted our attention, but it didn't smell very interesting.

My Human thought that she should take a picture of it. Then she thought that she should get out a Beatles album for the beetle to walk across.

"Humor the Human" that's my new motto!

Tube Bee


This photo is of Meepie staring at a bee. The stupid bee was in our house and at a window trying to fly through the glass to be outside. Meepie watched it for a while. He wandered away and I killed the stupid bee! Don't worry, though. I did not get stung.

But Meepie took issue with me killing "his" bee and he clobbered me.

Then my Human squirted both of us with a squirt bottle to end the fray.

And Roo Roo ran off with the bee!

..........5. My Human says I can be a jerk, but I'm really a sweet, lovable dog...when I'm alone with her!

..........6. I let Roo Roo boss me around usually.

..........7. I keep trying to lick Meepies eye, but it upsets him.

Get this! So last night my Human was sleeping. I thought it would be really funny if I stared at her till she woke up. So I got really close to her face and stared. She woke up and I acted like I was happy to see her. She let us go outside to pee. (Sidebar item: there were no stupid no-possums out there last night.) We all came back inside and we all went back to sleep.

So then an hour or so later I stared at her again till she woke up. Same thing as before.

And so I did it again maybe 2 hours later and again we all went outside. And came back in and went back to sleep.

Finally I was staring at her and she woke up, but didn't get up. So I decided to was a good time to practice "walk on the human balance beam." That's my newest Sibe Olympic sport. She got up then!

We laughed about my Human all day!

I'm Not Wearing Pants!


It will be interesting to see what sort of traffic this title brings to my blog!

My Human woke up at 4 this morning. She let us go out to pee. But then she discovered that Niki had peed on the carpet, so she had to clean that. Then Lex found a stupid non-dead no-possum outside, so my Human had to deal with that, too!

Husky Football League Update


It was a very bad weekend in the Husky Football League. All teams lost except for Bloomsburg University. And they didn't play!

Let's take a look at the mascots that beat huskies:
.....Sun Devils
.....Fightin' Blue Hens
.....Buster Bronco

I don't think any of these losses are excusable, but to a stupid BLUE HEN??!!

But please bear in mind that these aren't real huskies playing, but humans who are pretending to be huskies!

Turbo Calls for an End to Human Occupation of White House
By Aurora Borealis

LARGE-O, Md. - Of all the reasons Hurricane Akara Turbofire impresses upon voters why he should be elected president, he offered a new one here last night: "We've had enough humans in the White House."

At an outdoor rally on the campus of Queen Meeshka University, which sits just outside the city limits of Washington, Mr. Turbo told about 2,000 supporters that he would usher in a fresh era of optimism. To the cheering crowd, he declared: "We need someone canine!"

Mr. Turbo, of course, did not elaborate on either statement. But he made both of the remarks near the portion of his speech when he mentioned all the human candidates by name, reprising their disagreement over meeting with foreign dictators. He also reminded those in the crowd, as he does when he travels across the country, that "it's not enough just to change parties, we’ve got to change our species."

So who was Mr. Turbo referring to when he uttered the word "human?" That, apparently, was left for voters to discern for themselves.

Fargo Friday


Fargo often gets angry with me for no good reason. I've noticed that it happens when I want to lick his ear, but I'm sure that's just a coincidence. Anywoo, I've decided that he'd be thrilled for me to feature him today!

And look! I'm in this one, too!

I See!


Hey! How's everyone's weather? Ours is starting to be fantastic. We woke up this morning and the temperature was below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Wooooooooooooo! A while ago my good friend Bama nudged me to come up with my theme song. I'm still working on that. My Human frequently sings songs substituting words with our names (such as "Meepie Crack Corn).

Marley Interviewed Me!


I enjoyed being interviewed by Joe Stains so much that I asked my good bud Marley to interview me as well.

1. If you could take a vacation to anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I love the snow. No doubt about that. But I also love being inside. So, I'm going to pick the Icehotel in the village JukkasjÀrvi, Sweden. It's the best of both worlds! In fact, when I'm President, I'm going to make my White Doghouse be made of ice!

2. If you could only have oen toy for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Cuz! Cuz! Cuz! Cuz! (Did I mention Cuz?!) There is only 1 toy I really like. And it is the Cuz! Big. Small. White. Yellow. Red. Good. Bad. Doesn't matter as long as it is a Cuz!

3. If you were a super hero, what would you call yourself, and what would your powers be?
This one is tough! I'll go the easy route and say Turbo Charger! And I would be faster than anything! And my vision could stop stupidity with a single glance. I need a cape!

4. Have you ever hunted a living toy (squirrel, etc.) sucessfully?
There a 6 of us dogs here. Lex and Fargo are the largest, so any animal that is stupid enough to get in our yard is done in by them. But I've killed a couple of stupid mice. I just gently put my foot on them and they know to die! Plus, I once shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.

5. Do you like car rides?
Oh yes! I ride harnessed into the front seat. I can put my chin on my Human's leg that way! Woo!

Thank you, Marley for the fantastic interwoo. If anyone wants to be interwoo'ed by me this go around here's the rules!

Here's the rules if you want me to interview you:

1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave me a comment saying, 'interview me.'
2. I will respond by posting five questions for you. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

On Top Of Things


It is a good idea for all dogs to be on top of things. I say this not only as a candidate for President, but also as a canine.

Sunday, October 07, 2007



Where we live, a animal rescue group keeps some cats that are up for adoption. My Human likes visiting and playing with the cats. She likes this new cat called Aries. SHE DOESN'T SEE HOW DANGEROUS HE IS!!!!! LOOK!!!! HE IS TRYING TO KILL MY HUMAN!!!!!!!

An Interview With Tubes


I stopped by Joe Stains blog and found an opportunity to be interviewed by him. So here it is!

1. If you could have a human job, what would you do? Well, it's well known that I am running for President. But I don't know if that is the best answer. I think I'd want to be Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor. I keep trying to practice on Fargo's ears, but he won't let me.

2. What was your greatest tale of destruction? I'm not please to report that I am not a destructive dog with items. So, my answer will be that I've caused a bit of destruction to Lex. He survived, however.

3. What is your most favorite treat of all times! I love Beggin' Strips. But even better than that is stealing my Human's food out her her hand!

4. If you weren't a husky is there any other breed you'd like to be? I think I'll be a Border Collie because they are smart and they get to boss sheep around!

5. If you had to spend 24 hours with any dog with blog member, who would it be?! This is a toughy! There's so many good friends out there. But I'm going with my good friend Charlie the Big Dog, AKA C$. We would be 2 wild and crazy guys!!!

Thanks again for the interview Mr. Stains!

Here's the rules if you want me to interview you:

1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave me a comment saying, 'interview me.'
2. I will respond by posting five questions for you. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Some Others


(Note: I will answer Joe Stains questions tomorrow.)

I decided that I should share photos of some other dogs we know.

Here's Aussie and Hans. You can probably figure out which one is which one. They lived with my Human's landlady at the time. My Human lived there also, so she knew these dogs quite well. Aussie lived to 18 years. Hans, sadly died at 4 of a condition called perianal fistulas. Aussie was quite active until Hans died and she went downhill quickly. Aussie didn't really like to get her picture taken. I don't think I would have liked Hans very much. From what I understand, he was a lot like Lex!

Hey. Here's Izzy. She lived with a friend of my Human. I never met her, however. But Lex liked her. A lot!

This is Yo Mama Husky. She was once available for adoption with an organization my Human sort of volunteered for. She let Yo Mama come over for a visit one night. She got adopted shortly after that. I didn't know her either!

Zeus (or Zoop, as my Human called him) was a foster at our house (before me). He had an annoying loud voice. He was adopted by a deaf woman. It was a good match. Zeus's original home wouldn't let him come in the house and fed him canned corn. Zeus never went to the vet because his humans didn't want fur in their car. They were stupid.

Look! It's another white husky. Her name is Kyus. She was at the Humane Society, but a worker there quickly adopted her. I met her, but I yelled at her because she was stupid. She wanted attention from my Human!

The War


We have been watching Ken Burns' The War on tv. My Human's father served in the army during World War II. He began the War in Alaska helping to build the Alcan Highway. Later he served in Europe as a medic. My Human does not know much about his service, but she does know that he was a medic at the Battle of the Bulge. Watching The War on tv has given her a new respect and appreciation for her father as well as all the troops and other Americans during this period of the human history.

Meepie Monday


Dr. Misha Meepenstein requested that I post photos of him today.
