WITH BEN OSMUNDSON OF ZEBRAHEAD
Pet’s Names: Bella and Zeus Nicknames: Naughty and Naughty. Age: Bella is three and Zeus is one and a half. Sex: Female and male. Breed: Siberian Huskies. How you met: We found Bella at a pet store when we weren’t really looking for a dog. I know, I know, pet stores are bad, the evil of the world, but her personality was amazing so we had to bring her home with us. Once we got her home we realised she really needed a buddy, so we searched for a bit trying to find one to keep her company. Favourite food: Anything they can steal from the dinner table. For some reason whenever there is pizza around, they are trying to steal all of it. Yeah, they are completely spoiled. I am a sucker. Most annoying habit: Their favourite hobby is digging holes. My backyard would look like the moon if I didn’t fill them every day. Most endearing habit: How much they love everyone they meet. They look a bit like wolves so people are always scared of them, but once they meet them, people realise they are extremely nice and gentle dogs. I love to watch people shit their pants though when you’re walking up with them. Usually found: Sleeping under the trees in my backyard or chasing each other in circles. They love to run. It’s pretty damn fun to connect them to my beach cruiser and let them run around town. The inspiration for: Me owning the worst wolf/ moon T-shirt ever.
Eating the barbeque ignition switch, Biggest fuck up: TV remote, flowers… They don’t chew on many things but when they do, they are dust! Most touching moment: When they come up and put their paws on your knee, look you in the eyes and almost talk to you. Huskies talk more than bark so it really feels like they are having a conversation with you.
Behind every great band there’s an even cuter puppy, so it’s time to meet the loveable critters waiting to greet your favourite acts as they stumble through the door after a brutal bout of touring. We’ll be treating you to the friendliest and furriest, and this issue we’ve got Ben Osmundson of Zebrahead and his direwolves, uhh... Siberian Huskies Bella and Zeus.
