We Come Bearing Gifts

Sure, we take lots of grief for our wrestling and shedding and other mischief, but do you trust Siberian Huskies bearing gifts?

The Hu-Grandmom has a Jeep Wrangler (so does the Hu-Dad) and Wrangler’s have a unique feature – a spare tire clearly visible on the back. And Jeep people are well-known for having creative tire covers.

get face ready for photo shoot

Let me get my serious face ready for the photo shoot.

So we got together and bought the Hu-Grandmom a special tire cover that will make our cousins – Tartok and Ruby – proud! Frankie was sort of the model (though the tire cover has blue eyes and Frankie has brown).

ready for my close up

I am ready for my close up.

Since Frankie was the model, we thought it was appropriate that he also serve as spokesdog and model to show off the present. Of course it looks good here, but it looks even better on the Hu-Grandmom’s Jeep.

    Love husky specialty things. Where did you get the spare cover?

    Mom sez: Oh, Frankie, what a wonderful thing to do for the hu-Gramma! I bet she’ll be proud to drive around in her jeep with “your” portrait on her “rear end”!!!!!

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.
