Traveling Home

After a long and exciting week, we packed up the S-RV and rode home Saturday.  We had planned to stay through Sunday and go to the banquet Saturday night, but our hu-dad caught a cold and decided he should not share it with others.  Well, that is one reason.  Since we know we have many female humans as readers of this blog, let’s confess – male humans are pathetic when they are sick.  They whine more than Cheoah.  Just saying.

Anyway, we loved our week, but it was a nice sight as we entered our mountains.  The road may twist along the river gorge, but it is pretty:

Really helpful sign since it is half way through the gorge – hope you figured this out by here!

Sometimes you can’t go around – you have to go through the mountain

Fiona, another “house on wheels” traveler, asked earlier in the week how our crates were all situated.  You can see from these pictures that two are in the cab over space and four are where there used to be a couch.  You will also notice that our rescue parade ribbons are hanging proudly from our crates.  As we say, every rescued dog is a winner!  Natasha, of course, does not have a ribbon, since she is the only one of us who is not a rescue.

Cheoah and Rusty have the cab over space (they are the lightest to lift)

Ribbon? I don’t need no stinking ribbon.

    Ribbons aren’t good enough for queens. Natasha should have a trophy for putting up with the rest of the herd……or at least a tiara to accentuate her eyes!

    Princess Eva (who hasn’t seen her tiara since last year!)

    I have to agree, male humans become incomprehensibly pathetic when they’re sick. There – I said it!

    I think that the Queen needs a crown if she doesn’t get a ribbon. She is Natasha, after all!

    You all look very comfortable during your road trip. I love car rides too, but my island is so small so none of my road trips last for long.

    Hope your dad feels better soon!

    Everypup looks comfy in their crates! Great layout you got going there! Yes the Queen does not need a ribbon. 🙂

    It’s always nice to be home isn’t it? I am sure the Queen does not need a ribbon to prove she is the Queen anyway.

    We think your huDad needs to make a special ribbon for Natasha for being the only one of the TH to have survived life there from puppyhood:) Hope the cold improves quickly.

    “… and if I *DID* need a ribbon, I would take one of theirs.”

    Get well, Herd Dad, hit the zinc and all of that highly touted cure!

    You have certainly given your pups a perfect space to ride. And we have enjoyed coming along for the ride!

    Kisses,
    Stella

    That’s a very cushy arrangement. We’ve never traveled long distance, only just around. We do love car rides, and daddy folds up the seat at the back of our tiny car and lets us roam around at the back. I think you just gave him some ideas with the neat crates. oh no..

    Wooo,
    Togo

Serious Snow Faces Of The Thundering Herd

January 31, 2017 |

For Siberian Huskies, snow is a very serious business (and our reactions to the lack of snow is proof). Thus, we need to share our serious snow faces.
