Five Fur Friday #10 DAKOTA, PHANTOM & THUNDER Readers Choice

Bark Kent: Hello loyal readers and welcome to the 10th Five Fur Friday Interview or should I say Interwoo. This week you voted fur none other than Dakota, Phantom & Thunder and here they are... Welcome guys! Thank you fur taking the time to bark with me today.

Dakota: Hi Bark Kent. And welcome to the heartland of America. We hope you enjoy your visit to Overland Park, Kansas. We are quite excited to meet the famous Bark Kent.

Phantom: Yes, we can't wait to get this interview underway.

Thunder: Hey, don't forget about me. I may be the youngest but I always have lots to say.

Bark Kent: Well let's get started then! Who is "the leader of the pack?"

Thunder: Well, to be completely honest, we all know that the real leader here is the Mom - after all she controls everything - our food, treats, walkies, new toys, the password to the laptop...

Phantom: Excuse me, TD. Bark Kent means the leader of the pack. You know, the fur pack.

Thunder: Oh, sorry about that. Well, Bark Kent, since I am the biggest and the strongest and the best-looking pup here, you might think it is ME. But no, I know my place in this pack. The princess Dakota is our true pack leader. She IS the oldest and she IS a woman - so you know how that goes. Both Phantom and I have total respect for her. She gets to go out the door first, she gets treats first, she gets her food bowl first, you know how that goes. And then Phantom is #2. He isn't very pushy but he does let me know that I am the baby here.

Bark Kent: Who was the first pup to bark on your blog and do you still bark with them today?
Phantom: That is the easiest question to answer. We would not have a blog if it weren't for the pestering, I mean strong urging, from Miss Fluffy Tail herself, Khyra, and her secretary. So once we did get out blog going on July 4, 2008, it was only appropriate that Khyra be the first to woof her wise words. And yes, we all still woo together every day. Khyra hasn't let out her woo yet but she does bark to us a lot.

Bark Kent: I understand that you were diagnosed with Cushing's Disease a year ago. Firstly, is this something you are comfortable barking about and if so, would you like to explain to our readers, how this affects you?

Dakota: It has actually been almost two years since the vets told my mom that I was a sick pup. They said I only had about a year to live IF the meds they had worked. Well, so much for their prediction. I am still here, wagging my tail, perking up my ears for treats, and enjoying all the love and hugs I get from my Mom and Dad. Sadly, the medication for Cushing's didn't work for me. I do have two different pain medications I take every day and they do help keep me comfortable. I have a couple of very bad lumpy things inside my body that are not being very nice to me. I also have very high blood pressure so I usually pace my days - I sleep a lot and you can usually find me stretched out somewhere comfy. My sickness makes me drink a lot of water and you know what means, what goes in must come out. So I do have to make a lot of trips to the grassy domain in my yard. My fur isn't quite as plush as it once was, and my weight keeps dropping - does give me a sexy waistline though. One other thing Cushing's does to me is make me hungry ALL the time. I guess I should consider myself lucky since I can eat and eat and not gain weight - I won't be a contestant on any Biggest Loser shows. All in all, I don't complain too much as long as no one accidentally bumps into me - THAT doesn't feel too good.I do want to take this opportunity to thank all your readers for all the good wishes they send my way. I love all of you very much.

Bark Kent: What's your favourite food or snack?

Dakota: Let's just say that the only things I don't like are bananas and pills.

Phantom: I'm the Picky Guy. I love turkey. I keep trying to get my tongue wrapped around some of Mom's tasty spaghetti WITH the yummy sauce, but she won't let me have it. And most any homemade treats are a big hit.

Thunder: Do rabbits and squirrels count? I keep hearing they are very tasty, but I can't seem to find any. Otherwise, I am a big Happy Hearts cookies fan, and a day with ice cream is just wonderful

Bark Kent: You've won a trip fur two to doggy paradise, who do you take and why?

Dakota: I think I would have to take my Mom because she makes me so happy.

Phantom: Hmmmm, that's a hard one - if I could find that puppy I keep searching for, that is who I would take.

Thunder: Not a doubt in the world - I would take my gorgeous sweetheart Kat - from The Washington Woos.

Bark Kent: Thank you furry much fur barking with me today. It's been a pleasure.

Dakota: No, we have to thank you, Bark, for making this possible - you do such a great job of keeping all of us blogging dogs up to date with everyone.

Phantom: Does this make us famous?

Thunder: Oh, I hope so, Phantom. I so want to be a star. And do tell everyone that I will share all the stuffies that grow on my stuffy tree - gotta run, time to water that pot.

Bark Kent: Next weeks nominees are: Army of Four, Ari, Joe & Tanner & Samantha. Please vote fur who you would like to see interviewed in next weeks Five Fur Friday by using the poll at the top right hand side of this blog. Until next time, this is Bark Kent signing out.

Kimberly said...

Welp, Bell and I would like to say good bye... Unfortunately we live w/my boyfriends parents. They said Bell is too much _ she eats and rips up everything she possibly can and apparently they dont want me to take her to training. It's a really difficult thing for me. I'm not taking it well and have been leaking out of my eyes all last night as well as this morning.. THANK DOG FOR XANAX. Anyway- wanted to thank you for chatting w/us time to time.... Love your dog like there's no tomorrow.... much love Kimberly :) &Bell

Heya Bark,
Yet another great interview. You handled a triple interview like the professinal you are. We learned a lot about the 3 subjects. We're galad that Dakota has proven her prognosis as too short ranged. We hope she continues in that effort. Horray for Phantom and Thunder for giving all the family pack support. We done to all 4 participants.
