Snowy Siberian Sentry

Snowy Typhoon 1

For those of you who do not have Siberian Huskies (or other Nordic breeds) in snowy weather, . . .

Snowy Typhoon 2

It is hard to describe how much they love snow and cold.

Our high yesterday was 23 – and that was at midnight Friday night.

Snowy Typhoon 4

And, yet, convincing any of them to come inside for a while was virtually impossible.

Typhoon demonstrates it all here as the Snowy Siberian Sentry at the far end of the field.

Well, until he thinks a snack might be served.

    My bedroom is 75° or more, the living room 63° or less, in the Winter…I sleep alone unless I go to the sofa with Jackson, my Siberian…We’re pack-mates so I join him. 🙂

    I would come running if I thought there was going to be a snack served too!

    Many times I’ve let my two siberians out in the middle of the night in the middle of winter. I call for them to come in but they just stand there. I have to put my robe and boots on in the freezing cold and chase them back into the house. I’m sure they’re getting a good laugh and the neighbours think I’m nuts.

    My Sibe Loki lives here in Florida. He does very well in the heat. But I what he likes is it being warm so he can show off by staying in the freezing pond at the dog park longer than the short hairs who hang out here!

    We live in Brazil, far far far away from snow! I think Typhoon would hate our tropical weather but I always see huskies here, maybe they live in the air conditioner all day…
    I love your dogs and stories!!!

    So nice to see the Herd enjoying the snow. We don’t have snow here in the Philippines so we somehow wonder how the huskies and even alaskan malamutes can adopt to the tropical climate. Typhoon sure knows how to enjoy his day… but maybe he does enjoy snacks and treats more. Or maybe, he’s got it figured out that the snacks can disappear a lot faster than the snow.

    Happy weekend to the Herd!

    Oh yeah. Aries loved the cold and snow. We live in michigan and in the summer temps can reach in the hundred and be humid as heck. I use to feel so bad for him in the summer and just for him i would turn up the central air. Bruce is a german shepherd and yes he is the same way. I bought Bruce 6 days after we had to put Aries down and we swear and know it’s impossible, but we swear Aries is in Bruce. Bruce does so many things Aries did and things we didn’t teach him. It’s funny how that works. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

    When I was a kid, we had a dog that was part Sheltie. She had a very thick, warm coat. When we were living in Minnesota, our house didn’t have a fenced yard. We put the dog out on a chain to do her business and get exercise – only for short periods of time! She was an inside dog.

    Anyway, in the winter, my mom used to set the kitchen timer for a half hour when she put the dog out so that the dog wouldn’t be outside for too long. She says when she would go out to get the dog, the dog would be curled up asleep in the snow. She said the dog would look at her like “Are you crazy?” when my mom woke her up to come in!

    Gazing off into the trees — wonder what he thinks he heard or saw there? The “Big Dogs”, maybe?
