Not The Usual Scenery

We are mountain dogs. Hiking trails. Snow. Hills. That is how you usually see us, so today’s post is the not the usual scenery. Though it is a lot of fun for a group of snow dogs to wander through the streets of Charleston, SC.

the battery

Yes, this would be the Battery in Charleston, SC.

to ourselves

We had it to ourselves thanks to the high winds and the surf splashing over the sidewalk.


Hey, Hu-dad, did you see that wave crash over our heads?

Hu-dad mumbled something about smelling wet dog all week long so what could a few waves possibly add. You would think he loves Eau de Wet Dog, but humans have the weirdest smell sense.

But like we say all of the time, sometimes you just have to stop and smell the flowers.

Qannik smelling flowers

Uh, Qannik, that is just an expression.

    Looks like you are all having fun! You are definitely a cute herd of Sibes!

    Mom sez: Wow, they’ve had a real adventure this trip! Ocean, complete with crashing waves. Do any of the members of The Herd LIKE the water? Though, salt water might be a bit “off-putting”.

      Cheoah loves river and lake water, but shows no interest in the ocean. Frankie is quite clear that water should not move. Natasha loves to wade in the surf and Kiska will, of course, do anything her sister does. No one wants the water higher than their knees.

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
