Valentine's Day Lick Attack

For Valentine’s Day I am relying on Mooka to do what she does best: spread pure, unadulterated love. She has never met a person she does not want to give numerous kisses. We call her “aggressively affectionate.” Once she gets going, she will knock off any hat or glasses you are wearing, and if you’re holding a beverage, she’ll knock that out of your hands too. We can try and keep her from doing this if you really hate dogs, but it makes her gag when you pull on her collar that hard.

In this slideshow, Popsey is demonstrating one of the most important defensive techniques if you are ever confronted with Mooka’s lick attack. Keep your mouth tightly shut! If you really can’t stand it anymore, go on the offensive. She is very submissive, and if she senses you’re the aggressor in the situation, she’ll “flump” onto her back for a belly scratch instead. Also, remember to moisturize afterwards.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Mooka loves you (or she would if she ever met you).

P.S. Thanks to Secret Agent Josephine for the animation lesson!


  1. Well gosh darn I could have helped you with your header. I've been in Denver with the gophers the last 7 or 8 days. In fact the destruction they have caused in our absences is unbelievable. Here's a photo.
    Unbelievable. I need to order some of those boxes. I think hubby has some other ideas.
    Sorry I missed the contest. I would have guessed gopher stew.
    Love you view!

  2. That looks a lot like the ground around here...minus the snow. We've almost gotten used to it, but it's terrible. We had some major rain around here which slowed down the trapping. We hoped they were drowning. But then yesterday Popsey caught one, so he's back at it. He's taken to laying some torn up fruit tree prunings over the trap and thinks that helps attract the little buggers.
    Welcome back from your trip. Urg...stuff!

    I do not give that little slide show a G rating and therefore it should not be shown before 9pm.

  5. Wow, cool graphics! love the look on Popsey's face during the onslaught!

  6. Good thing I cut out the part where she starts humping him.
