Waiting Patiently

A Siberian Husky fur coat is an amazing thing, beautiful and soft.  And sheds like nothing imaginable.  Thus, we get lots and lots of brushing from the hu-dad.  Most of us love to be brushed, can’t wait for our turn, and don’t want the brushing to stop.  Of course, waiting patiently is not our biggest strength.

no complaints

Keep brushing, hu-dad. I don’t want to hear complaints about your arm is tired.

my turn

Don’t listen to him, hu-dad. It is my turn.

or else what

Listen, Frankie, move it or else.
Or else what?

Game on!

Game on!


You two go right ahead. I am still sulking that I got brushed AGAIN today.

We did say most of us like being brushed.  Typhoon is a notable exception.  Of course, he is currently blowing coat, so daily brushing is not optional for the Little Prince.  And, yes, he sat in his crate and pouted after the brushing.

    Mom sez: Ice is just now beginning to blow coat, and he HATES being brushed. I usually end up taking him out to his “Gramma Deb’s” place, where she takes her doggy blow dryer to him. THAT, he loves!

    Harlow must be part Sibe – she loves brushing too! She throws herself to the floor and assumes the “brushing pose” when she sees the brush.

    Monty? Monty not so much…

    You are so lucky! I love Huskies. I only have one but would love to have a herd of them. I live in SW Virginia which is not far from you. Is it ever possible to visit your dogs & introduce Airica to them? She loves to run & play with other dogs.
