Recharge Time

We talk a lot about Hu-dad’s number one saying – a Tired Sibe is a Good Sibe – and share how we walk and hike a lot.

Hemphill Bald

A few clouds around Hemphill Bald do not stop our evening walk around the “neighborhood.”

When we show pictures of a Tired Typhoon, we are inevitably asked what is his recharge time.

catch my breath

Great walk. Let me just catch my breath.

So let’s measure exactly how long he took to recharge last night. The picture above was taken about a minute after we returned from our walk and the picture below about a minute later.



Hu-dad turned his attention to something in the kitchen, heard some racket, and looked outside.

2.5 minutes

Come on, Cheoah, we have been resting an entire 2.5 minutes.

    Hilarious! Such a magnificent dog. So alert and attentive. Clearly keeps everyone on their toes, too ?

    Wow he is a hyper little thing isn’t he. I see why he is so thin. He has a high metabolism. He needs to send some of that to me please lol. Hugs and kisses to the herd.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
