A Slippery Situation

Sometime last month, Aki and I received this wonderful parcel from our very good buddies, Huskee and Hershey after winning in their slipper giveaway contest! See how excited Aki was to open the pressie?

H&H and their mum were very kind enough to send two slippers for each of us. In it was a pawsonal note from H&H themselves. If you read closely, they specifically stated that I get the pink slipper, while slipperhog Aki gets the blue one. Instructions can’t get any clearer than that.

I can so understand why this has become Huskee’s favorite toy… It’s just so cushy and soft, not to mention, squeaky. Very squeaky.

It can be gleaned from this picture how happy I am to be sporting this new fashion statement. In my pawsonal opinion, this is far better than those Havaianas and Ipanemas that the hoomans sport.

But if you think getting this slipper was as easy as apple pie, then you are mistaken.
Remember H&H’s note? They were crystal clear right? Well… let’s just say a certain someone has a problem with following orders.

As you can see from the evidences below, this certain someone seems to gravitate towards the pink slipper. We had to tell him again and again that the blue one is for him because as a general rule, blue is for boys and pink, for girls.

Look at how fixated he was to get the pink slipper from the hooman. These are the eyes and determination of a raving lunatic… *shudder*

Finally, we have decided to settle the score with some modeling. Afterall, only an actual “paw test” will determine if the pink slipper suits him best….


Hold your breath. This is not for the faint hearted.

Aki’s paw in blue

Not bad. Not bad at all… The heart design gives it a little touch of femininity while the thong design gives a sense of comfort. As for those horrid nails, there’s nothing a little manicure and french tip would fix.

And now…

Aki’s paw in pink

What do you know… *Poopie gasps. For a minute she holds her breath and then blinks.* Never in my young life did I ever think pink strawberries would suite such a manly paw…

Enlighten me, puppies. Do real men really wear pink?

If they are sekhure in their manliness they do BUT normally if the lady prefers the pink item, they would pawmit her to have it!

Furry nice toys! I'm sure woo will work it out!

Funny presents!

Pink is OK for a guy who is confident in his dog-ness and I think Aki fits the bill (although the blue does look better on him).

Yes Aki is a very secure dog. He looks good in either slipper. Though the pink one hides his toe nails.

Real men shouldn't wear pink. real dogs can wear any colour! We're too cool!

Well, the grandbaby twin boy here just loves to wear his sisters' pink shoes, even the ballet slippers:-)

Don't worry, Poopie, at least girls can get away with pink OR blue.

woos, the OP Pack

Charlie said...

Whoa! I can't believe the pink slipper would look better on Aki.

Poopie you should just take Aki's blue one.


Dino and Family said...

Whoa! Those are some fine looking slippers! H & H have good tastes! Enjoy them! Hope your mommy is feeling better, I think she needs a good rest. Please give her a hug from me you two! Love, Dino

Mitch probably would have grabbed the pink on first too, Aki!
You look great in your slippers! But the all important question is how do they feel on your tootsies?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Huskee and Hershey said...

**clears throat**... (controlling giggle)... Ahem..

I must say that pink suits Aki pretty well! (Hey Aki, don't you worry abt it.. I am a boy and my mom gets all sorts of red stuff for me.. i.e. leash, collar, waterbowl, etc.. cos she claims that red stands out against my 'monochrome' fur..)

Ummm.. Poopie, I hope you don't mind the blue... next time I will remember to send 2 pink toys! Heehee...

Love to you 2 and your manang..
