Mishka (More)

Many thank to Penny Cornett for telling us a little more about Mishka, Chet’s August Friend of the Month. (Next month this could be you – just post a pic to the FB page.)
“Mishka was a Christmas puppy back in 2016 who came to live with us, be our good boy, and keep our older Samoyed Sergei company during his final years. Mishka is totally cool with cats, but he really hates the raccoons that come up on the deck and taunt him through the glass doors. He loves car rides, prancing around the park, getting scritch-scratches behind his ears from all the kids, and he really, really loves to get pup cups. Mishka likes going to work with mom at her office whenever he can, because he understands that his number one job is to take care of his people. He has a lot in common with Chet in that respect!”

    Who doesn’t hate raccoons? Also opossums, rats, mice and other small vermin. Especially Freyja. Being part Husky she is particularly averse to small prey. Diana is no slouch either. Not sure about Freyja but I know Diana does hate cats. There were feral cats living in Ramses’ dog house when I brought her home as a puppy and she met a few in the yard. I was not witness to it but I suspect there was an encounter that left a very negative imprint on her. Ours is not a cat family so I’ve allowed her to retain her prejudices as the only cats around are feral and I don’t want them in the yard anyway.

    Diana gets Mishka’s protecting her people and Freyja identifies with the car rides as she seems to love them too.

    Mishka sounds like an all around wonderful dog to have around and from the photo seems quite happy to enjoy life and is living it to the fullest.

    I’ll bet he loves brushing as much as Diana does and Freyja doesn’t.

    Still love those floating dog tags, just hovering below the neck. Collar? What collar?

    My Kamir [a cat] hates raccoons as much as Mishka. One evening, one tore through our Florida pool patio screening, probably trying to get to the ripening bananas growing inside. Kamir, only 10 pounds of coal black fur, was outside on her nightly patrol of her domain while I waited by the sliding door to let her in. She heard the noise, saw a large raccoon and leapt into action without a second’s hesitation and to my stunned horror, went after it, yowling. Kamir’s sharp claws and teeth apparently shredded the critters nose and face, it only getting some minor wounds herself. There was gawdawful yowling from both but the action only lasted seconds. The raccoon beat a hasty retreat out the screen hole it had made before I could bring over a broom to go after it. Kamir, normally a mild mannered feline was wild eyed and undoubtedly high on cat adrenaline. I could not touch her for several minutes. Finally, I was able to bring her inside, calm her, tend to the minor wounds and offer a tuna treat as a reward her bravery. We have replaced all the screening with a “pet proof”type that has held up well. The raccoon was never seen in our neighborhood again. Kamir is 20 now, but still patrols her patio every evening before retiring, just in case.
