Waiting for My Turn

We were able to run again Sunday morning and, yes, we will have video later this week.  What – we are making you wait?  How cruel, right?  Well, the hu-dad believes we should be willing to wait on things – dinner, getting in or out of the Jeep, waiting to run on the sled.  Yes, waiting on our turn on the sled.  Want to see what we mean?

Waiting on turns to run.

Wait - do we hear them coming?

    The waiting is the hardest part, and we hate it.

    Waiting is the hardest thing…whether it is dinner…or walk time…or getting into the car. I feel your pain and boredom.

    Herd, the hu-dad is cruel. Does anyone make him wait for his dinner?

    We are waiting for the video. We don’t wait as nicely as you guys do though. The Hounddogs

    Mushing is so much fun that it’s definitely worth the wait!

    We wouldn’t be very patient waiting either. Maybe you need to get Tartok and Ruby to come along and then with two sleds and four dogs each, no waiting:)

    I’ll bet it was worth it all in the end, though! How long does it take all of you to get into your gear?

    Waiting is so hard……but we are patiently awaiting the video!!!!! KB has a death wish for the Hu-dad wanting to hook up all 6 at one time….YIKES!!!

    We think that you should just hook all SIX up at a time and let them rip! *That* would be quite a video.

    I can imagine that they aren’t very quiet while waiting their turns if they’re anything like other dogs or like the Sibe sled dogs I’ve seen! I hope that the video includes audio!

    I can’t wait… Oh, but I’m supposed too.

    Who does hu-dad think he is? pack leader or something? I think I better ask the queen that question?

    Can’t wait to see the video!!!

    Alright! I know we’ve to learn to be patient but it’s hard!!!

  18. Minnie and Mack on October 18, 2010 at 6:08 am

    What fun! We can’t even imagine what running with the sled must be like. Last night on Amazing Race, we saw some sled dogs from Sweden, after watching them, we then had idea what running on dirt would be like! Your picture show how excited you all are to have your turn. Can’t wait for the video.

    Drools and licks,

    Can’t wait to see the video … I don’t even know what “running” is … what’s a sled? Just can’t wait to see!
