Visitors on the Porch


After our hike on Sunday with our visitors from Charleston, SC, we settled into the backyard. Here, Kodi has snagged a great vantage point while Qannik checks in on our guests.


Nia, meanwhile, has found that the stones are nice and cool for a good nap.


Kodi settled onto the deck where he could keep a close eye on all of the humans.


And Nia found the steps the perfect place to do a classic Siberian sit.

    That is so cool, when you can invite friends over, and make them feel quite at home. Me ‘n Ice like to have friends come to visit, too. We PREFER other Sibes, but we like to have our “hu-Auntie Megan” come to stay and bring Emma, her Jack Russell with her. For a small dog, she’s okay, too. As for the “Classic Siberian sit”, that’s the way I sit on the stairs off our deck all the time, too, and so does Ice.
