Yesterday was Dragonboat Festival and the hoomans brought home these little rice dumplings which is synonymous with the festival. Too bad they did not give me any as these are made of glutinous rice and mom said that glutinous rice is bad for me cos they cannot be easily digested. (Paw-sonally, I think it's her excuse for not sharing the rice dumpling with me...)
There is actually a Chinese folklore behind this festival though I am not very sure about the details since mom isn't the most knowledgeable person around... Honestly sometimes I think that I could be the smartest being in the household. If I were any smarter, I'd probably gather all my DWB friends and plan to take over the world, invent a cure for AIDS & cancer, annihilate ticks from the surface of the earth, find a way to visit ALL my friends from around the world, prepare my own dinner..... (the list goes on)..

I think your mom is smart for not sharing food that can give you a tummy ache! That's an interesting little green packet. I suppose you take the tie off before you eat it?

Love ya lots,

Ummmmm Yum-o! when you take over the world- are you going to pass those dumplings out as treats? I really need to know.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Huskee
Don't be mad with your mom. She doesn't want you to get sick.
Sounds a good idea that thing of taking over the world. What we have to do??
Have a nice day

Hey Huskee Boy,
Such a shame you didn't get to taste the dumplings. They have dragonboat races here in the summer. We'll help you with taking over the world! All dogs must unite, hehehehe!

Hey Huskee.

I think our Moms are both liars. They always make up these dumb lies when they don't want to share their food. I think we have to put our brains together and outsmart them!!!


T-man said...

Hey Huskee, can you send some of those rice dumplings over to Uncle Sammi and me? I think once they've traveled air mail they'll be more digestible (hee hee)


Girl Girl Hamster said...

Oh those look yummy. I wish they come in doggie & hammie verions. I think you're a real smart too Huskee.

The humans really should be afraid of the community we have here and all the smarts we collectively have!

Sir Chance-Lot said...

Ume said...

i didn't get a bite either...

Hui Min said...

haha those ears.. can i honk them? :p

i tried asking for some dumplings too, but i got zilch.


Kerrio said...

Definitely one of those poor human excuses for not sharing food. They seem to think up SO many.

The only answer is to steal it, do you need a leg up from an SUMD to reach the kitchen counter?

Huskee Boy
Those look like realy interesting green parcels - would be fun to open and yum yum -shame it' not good for puppies.
You sure are smart & I like the idea of being able to visit all the dog blog friends !!

Seadra & Zoe said...

Hi Huskee....Did your Mom see any Pugs at the Chinese festival? You know us pugs are of Chinese descent.

Love, Zoe

PreciOus said...

Aww sista missed the festival. She didn't get to eat any dumblings. So do I! Sob.


ToFFee said...

Hi Huskee!

My pawrents doesn't let me have hooman food either! =(

Those dumplings look nice.. I think I hear my mum drooling! hehehe

they miss foods like that back at home. I've never been to their homeland yet but they pwomise to take me with once they go home for their annual leave.

maybe I'll ask them to make a stop at Singapore!

Scuba the Muscle Boy said...

I want some of those to eat.

Where were you on saturday? I was looking forward to seeing you.
