Work and the Working Breed

Hu-Dad spent the day Friday stacking firewood in preparation of the coming winter. So how do you think work and the working breed blended?

who is fluffing my pillows

Gee, that must be hot, dirty work. Who is going to fluff my pillows?

Oh, come on, with a houseful of sled dogs, there must be some member of The Herd who is worried about the Hu-Dad.

too tired for ear scratches

I am worried about him. After all, I hope he isn’t too tired to give me ear scratches and belly rubs.

Let’s check in with the youngest member of The Herd. He must be concerned about the Hu-Dad.

What, me worry?

What, me worry? Dinner had better be on time.

    Where are your harnesses?? Where is your cart?? Put those pups to work, and call me so I can sell tickets to the event. I will even bring my snow cone machine and sell Yellow (lemonade) Snow. Hmmm, Probably too hot right now, maybe in October….

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.
