Vets and vet techs who know the dramatics of huskies have always recognized Juno's unusually calm behavior whenever they examine her. If you poke her in a sore spot, she'll simply whimper and kiss your hand. Though she is stoic like the breed is known to be, she's not very vocal like huskies. This dog once ran around with a nail straight through her paw with nary a sign of discomfort, just a big smile on her face, while you and I would be screaming in agony. But the minute she's stoned, the real husky comes out with relentless whining! "Woe is me!" All night long I had to endure the vocalizations of a husky with a grievance. She doesn't like being stoned. "Just say no," says Juicy. I swear Internet, she only had her teeth cleaned and one tiny molar removed. Sure there will be a little soreness, but this dog used to run 8 miles daily with pretty severe hip dysplasia, bitten by aggressive dogs more than once and was hospitalized for a week with a severe infection and never did she cry, bark or howl about any of it. I know what she was up to with. She was milking me for every stinkin' ounce of 'sympathy with treats' she could get. And though I am completely aware of her husky head-games, the force is strong with this one, and I gave in with a nice big helping of 2nd dinner. It's not over yet. I'm waiting for the other shoe to be masticated. Justice is coming. You can count on that.
