No thumbs = no fun

Ever since I shared that photo essay last week on the war dogs, I can’t seem to get the vision of that war dog jumping out of the plane out of my head.

I know that I could never make it as a war dog. Could you imagine me sniffing out land mines or taking out the enemy? No, me neither.

But jumping out of a plane? I hear it’s like hanging your face out of the car window – only better.

Mum told me there is more to skydiving than just taking a leap. You need to know when to open the parachute so you don’t get squashed when you land – and this is a job that requires thumbs. You also need to steer yourself so you don’t land on a tree or the like, and get squashed – again, a job for thumbs.  Oh and mum told me that my eyes just couldn’t handle that amount of wind, they’d probably dry out and look like little raisins before I ever hit the ground.

This news has kind of got me down. I mean, why is it all the fun things in life require thumbs? It’s just not fair.


About Sabrina's Pug Tails

My name is Sabrina. I am a three year old fawn pug who lives with my three humans and my brother-cat Shinobi. I came to live with my family in February of 2010. I don’t remember much about my life before that. I know that I didn’t have a nice warm bed to sleep in or soft couches to lay on. I was rescued from my previous life by the Boston Terrier & Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba along with my brother, sister and mom. My human mum tells me that some dogs work at being smart and some work at being cute, and I am very, very cute. I think there may be some kind of insult here………

  1. Sabrina, there are skydiving dogs and one is a pug. Google it and I think you’ll find out about her and maybe even find out how to get Pugoggles for your eyes! I say go for it!!

    Hi Sabrina! I don’t see you doing all those typical war dog things, but I think you could stun the bad guys with your cuteness and then the more burly dogs could come in and finish things for you! I love to bite at the air when the windows are rolled down in the car, I can’t imagine all the wind if I was flying! But I hear ya on the thumbs. I sometimes try to use my “thumbs” when playing, but they don’t work all that great.
    PS. Yes, that is my Gampy.
