Singing in the Rain

The fun part of any group of canines is that you get to know their eccentricities. For example, what member of The Herd is most likely to be found singing in the rain?


Someone’s fur coat is looking recently toweled.

Typhoon can sometimes be found playing in the rain, and sometimes taking cover, but Qannik seems to have a consistent pattern of hanging out in the rain.

Hu-Dad will explain the hanging fur in the fence posts in just a moment.

Just yesterday, Q was napping on the covered porch when a storm rolled in. Q picked that exact moment to go hang out in the yard.

Just back from singing in the rain.

P.S. – Ok, the hanging fur. Hu-Dad uses Air Force Commander 2-Speed Dryer 4.0 HP Motor S to blow our undercoat during shedding season. It is very effective, but the fur flies everywhere. And, yes, it can get hung in the fence posts.

    I am in need of one of those super duper “blowing coat” coat blowers. Do you know where can I find one?

      We included a link to Amazon in the story. It is also available from many dog show sites and dog supply stores.

    Qannik is the Gene Kelly of Sibes.

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
