Comfort Is In The Eye of the Beholder

Most humans have heard the phrase “Beauty is the eye of the beholder,” but we Siberians know that it is really “Comfort is in the eye of the beholder.”

Frankie likes to lay at the end of the deck so that he has a perfect view of the field for rabbit patrol. Unfortunately, if the rabbits are off to his right, he ends up with his front legs pointed toward the field and the back legs toward the house.

Time to go back to napping.

You humans would think that this is an impossible position to be comfortable. But, then, you humans are not Siberian Huskies.



See. Proof that comfort is in the eye of the beholder if you are a Siberian Husky.

    I get this position all the time at night. Both Leena now and Chloe before would contort and use my body as a brace to lay in positions that I don’t think even the most flexible things in the world could bend to. I think pipe cleaners I used for my old muzzle loading rifle and handgun were jealous.

    My huskies and malamutes who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge frequently found the concrete patio very comfy as a pillow, with their bodies lying in the grass.

    Mom sez: I, too, have often wondered how comfortable some of the positions Sibes get into can possibly be. One of Ayla’s favourite sleeping positions used to be right over on her back, all four feet in the air. Dr. Trevor, our vet said it was good for their spines, got the kinks out. The position Frankie is laying in is almost identical to the way Ice likes to lie, and Ebby’s favourite position is curled up into “Husky Winter Mode”, nose tucked into tail.
