Overcoming Obstacles


Kiska – Sometimes in life you come face to face with an obstacle in your path


Qannik – What to do?


Kodiak and Cheoah – Why, you just get to work overcoming the obstacle!


Rusty – Or you make it one big game!

    We’re still working on the drain grate in our driveway. Loki has manage to overcome it. Juno has been able to put one or two paws on it!

    Thank woo for your comment yesterday. It was very sweet and we are in agreement on the “disabled” statement. Poor choice of words on Wild Dingo’s part!

    Did wee Quannik make it over the obstacle, or did he need all the GIRLS to show him how it’s done?

    Every obstacle is an opportunity for fun! Don’t you think we should all approach obstacles like our dogs!

    Such great life lessons provided by huskies… We should always take advice from animals that instead of choosing to bark, choose to sing!

    On your way to Colorado, please do pay a visit to OP too and maybe Qannik would like to come to stay.

    Happy weekend, the OP Pack

    That is the essence of dogs, is it not? Always finding the silver lining! Happy weekend, I hope you get that snow you’ve been hankering for!
