In My Zen Place


[Edit at 9:20am on 3/5/08: Well guys, the results are in, and we got beaten by a CAT!!! I'm thinking maybe there were butterfly ballots involved! Nevertheless, everything I wrote below is still totally true. You guys are the best friends an aspiring dictator could ever have. I guess I can open my eyes now.]

Well, friends, voting has ended for the photo contest, and winners will be posted soon. As you can see, I'm meditating while I await the results.

Life on the campaign trail was hard, but, I just wanted you to know that no matter what happens, you are the best friends a dog could ever ask for.

Firstly, I'd like thank my campaign manager, Aunt Laura. Aunt Laura really took up my cause, and worked super hard to deliver my message to the world. She was the most enthusiastic campaign manager that a future world leader could hope for.

I'd also like to thank my great friends, Bonnie & Sushi, and all of their wonderful pals from the Toronto Shiba Inu Meetup Group. Bonnie & Sushi are also trying to find a home for Chigo (remember him?), which means that they are true blue friends (i.e., they aren't just nice to you when they think you might become the next leader of the free world).

Aunt Stephanie, and mom's pals Deb and Knitty D, also provided me with much appreciated support during this very trying campaign. You should definitely check out Deb's web site, because she does amazingly realistic drawings of dogs! And, you should check out Knitty D's blog because she's just totally cool and she loves beagles.

And, of course, thank you to everyone who cast votes and showed support for me. You will not be forgotten when I gain control of the world treat supply.

I should probably also thank mom and popi, but I don't want them getting any funny ideas about who has the upper paw in this relationship. I think I'll just save my thanks for a time when I've really done something to tick them off (shouldn't be long!). In life, as in campaigns, it's all about strategy.

Come what may, you will all be the first to know when I've received the results.

With much love and appreciation,

Did you hear that thud? Bwa hahahahaha! This is the Alpha of Sushi, the cat Tatiana! To continue the world domination of cats, I will not permit Sushi's paws to touch the keyboard (no matter how yummy they smell, I get high from it!).

Sushi WAS attempting to send his condolences on your loss, but I beat him to the computer and here I am.

Well, I guess at least you are a Shiba, so I guess I can feel a bit bad for you - did you come in 2nd at least?? Since Shiba's are cat-like I suppose I could be a bit nice....

Better luck next time! Meow, meoooowwww!!!!

Tatiana (Sushi's true Alpha)
