A Long Trip and Hitchhikers

As we mentioned yesterday, our weekend plans kicked into gear including both a long trip and hitchhikers.

Let’s start with the long trip part where Hu-dad loaded us into the S-RV (Siberian Recreational Vehicle, for those of you not up on your acronyms – or, as Hu-dad’s old employer used to call them – TLA’s – Three Letter Acronyms). The good part is that we have our own special room for traveling.

Siberian Husky Living Room

Every RV should have a Siberian Husky living room.

But then came the hitchhikers. The Hu-grandmom was meeting us for our RV excursion, but that meant we had to bring our cousins, Tartok and Ruby, with us. All great except that they don’t have crates in our living room, so they got to ride in the special digs up front.

After nearly 8 hours in the RV, we finally arrived, took a really long walk, and then helped the Hu-dad set up our campsite.

Just like at home, we seem to help best by staying out of the way. Never has made sense to us.

And, of course, we reunited our cousins with our Hu-grandmom and her S-RV – right next door to us.

Now all of this may seem idyllic, but we have to warn you about this last part. It is horrible – horrible – and we have even included a picture.

Can you believe that the humans had their dinner outside at the picnic table – right in front of all of us? And to make it worse, we weren’t given our dinner until after they ate.

The horror

The horror. The horror.

Once again, we have revealed exactly how rough of a life we live.

    I’m reporting Hu-dad. Every sibe owner should follow 1st dinner and 2nd dinner rules. I’d invite ya’ll to live with me to escape the tragedy but something tells me your life is pretty swank with all those long hikes and SRV-ing adventures.

    We love that hu-grandma has her own mini-s.r.v. You all really do have an extremely rough life!!

    Mom sez: Yes, what a sadly, hard-done-by Herd of Siberian Huskies you are!

The Red Balloon (Except Silver)

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
