Guess what we woke up to? Sunshine! Many of you may be shrugging and saying, “so what?”, but those of us in the Southeastern U.S. are very excited because that means the rains finally stopped. Fantastic! We got in a really good walk before leaving Big Ridge State Park:
Rusty walked the wall on the way out
and Kiska walked it on the way back
while Rusty did his patented behind the human’s legs walk.
We also had an encounter with three big dogs (deer) when they ran across the road in front of us, but our humans were too inept to take a picture of the moment. Something about we decided to try and run and play with the big dogs in the woods. We keep telling them to unhook our leashes from their waist belts and those embarrassing moments when we drag them would not happen, but they never listen.
And then we met some really strange creatures as we drove down to Chattanooga:
This first guy was using the pet walk at the Tennessee Welcome Center in Chattanooga. A security guard approached and told the people that he (she – who knows?) could not use the pet walk. We did not see any signs prohibiting that behavior, but apparently there is a law against it in Tennessee. Shrug. We were totally intrigued and wanted to go meet this really strange breed of dog, but the human prevented that fun, too. (We like the little guy in the lower left of the picture – he looks impressed).
Kiska was sure that this was Huffle and we tried to say hello. Just like a cat. Just sat there and stared at us and would not say a word.
This guy was on a horse carriage at the entrance to the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel and was totally intrigued with all of the Siberians. We talked to his human for a while and she had owned Alaskan Malamutes and had been excitedly waiting on the convention so that she could meet some Siberians. We allowed her to scratch our ears. How nice of us.
Oh, yeah, apparently our humans are really confused. We are really staying at the Chattanooga Coo Choo. Gesundheit.
Anyway, we finally did get set up at the Siberian Husky Club of America National Specialty and enjoyed a pleasant evening at the hotel. We will end for today with these pictures:
The Herd on our drop line listening to all of our neighbors
Cheoah smells somepup interesting
Two of our many, many neighbors
