Fluffy Tail in the Breeze

While lots of Siberians have great fluffy tails, when you have some wooly coat in your genes like Kiska, you can really get the fluffy tail effect going, particularly on a windy day:


And Miss Kiska can strike quite the refined look as well with the subtle paw cross:

    You have to love the wooly coats. Only had 2 woolies and both hated the brush. Kiska was a beautiful girl.

    I love seeing the Sibes who had you wrapped around their paws Hu-Dad. Kiska was such a pretty girl and oh that tail!

    So did Kiska teach Khyra or the other way around? All paws crossed from here.

    What a great fluffy tail, and the paw placement is just pawfect. =)

    Hmmmmmm and HaRoooooo! Are woo distantly related to Lady Khyra. Dat paw crossing and fluffy tail could be clues.

    It’s been so breezy here, my fluffy butt almost got knocked over while I was lifting my leg!
    Kiska’s tail and crossed paws… that face… sigh. What a gorgeous babe!
    Play bows,

    I wonder if the tail is a fakhtor in the khrossed paws trait?

    PeeEssWoo: Left over right was my choice of pawsitions most of the weekend!

    Kiska does have quite a fluffy tail. Good for telling which way the wind is blowing.

    I think that Kiska is keeping her paws crossed for snow tomorrow!I’m keeping my paws crossed, too!
