Saturday Snapshots

Our Saturday was a little warm and muggy, but beautiful.

We wandered down by our favorite tree, which has leafed out well. The hu-dad needs to mow the field though because the grass was tickling our, uh, ears. Ok, it was over our heads.

This feather near the ski resort was the weirdest sight of the day. Either some kids were playing around, it is part of a spell, or a bird landed really, really poorly.

Our hu-dad does want you to notice how he defloofed us with over an hour of brushing. No pictures of that horrific time because we do not want to scare pups.

    “Defloofed”! LOL great word! I can only imagine how long it must take to do all SIX!

    We love your site. Thanks for the inspiration. The “Herd” is beautiful and it is wonderful that they are rescues!
    Turke says we don’t always understand those “snow dogs” but they are awesome.

    Your hu-dad did a great job defloofing you, but some of your tails looked a bit like that feather so perhaps the feather was a sign which way you should go. Lovely scenery too.

    We don’t live that far away from you…we’re in the Northeast Ga Mtns, 15 minutes from Appalachian Trail…beautiful country!

    Loving those floofy tails…ours won’t floof like that no matter how much Mom brushes.

    If your hu-Dad would get a carder and a spinning wheel he could spend his spare time spinning your floof into yarn. It makes lovely stuff if its mixed with a nice matching wool. I hope he doesn’t let it go to WASTE!

    Cheers and hugs all around,
    Jo, Stella and Z

    You sure does has beeootiful mountains there! You has my sympathies on the defloofing. I does not has near as much floof as you do but mine comes out every day always so if’n mom does not defloof me, then I does it myself all over the house. I must say your hu-dad did a mahvelous job on your floofs!

    You may have been de-floofed but you still have floofy tails!

    Beautiful scenes – field looks so pretty and beckoning! Don’t know about that feather – heebie jeebies, but love your “bad landing” idea!!! And you definitely look less “hairful”!!! A lot of floof must have come out!
    Hugs xoxo

    The “defloofing” must have been a big job with so many Sibes!

    Love the green grass and beautiful tree. It looks like true summer there.

  15. Dennis the Vizsla on May 30, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    An hour of brushing all together, or apiece?

  16. Sagira on May 30, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    Looks so beautiful there. Hope you enjoyed your walk.

  17. DogsMom on May 30, 2010 at 11:37 am

    You are a remarkably well smoothed and groomed looking herd. Thanks for taking us along on your adventure.

  18. Maxx on May 30, 2010 at 10:44 am

    green too! That must’ve been some
    big bird!!

    Cheers

    That’s a very svelte looking Herd! They all fit in the picture now with nobody being squeezed out.

  20. Zona on May 30, 2010 at 9:42 am

    What a lovely walk! You all look so beautiful walking together defloofed!

    Wags,
    Zona

  21. cyndi on May 30, 2010 at 8:44 am

    I’m sure you were all beautiful before the defloofing, but more beautiful than ever, after!

    The Berner is pretty special, in more ways than one! Thanks for checking us out!

  22. The OP Pack on May 30, 2010 at 8:22 am

    Khyra may be right about that feather.

    You all look so good, Mom wants to know how your huDad can do all of that in just one hour.

    Woos – Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  23. Khyra & Khousin Merdie on May 30, 2010 at 7:18 am

    I think the feather was just trying to bekhome an honourary Siberian Plume!

    Hugz&Khysses,

    Humans seem to waste so much time defloofing us! You do all look very smart though and that looked like a lovely field. That feather is a little puzzling……

    Great field! And good to hear you all survived the defloofing that you Siberians despise so much!
