Better Than A Tired Sibe

Siberian Husky owners learn a saying, “A Tired Sibe is a Good Sibe.” Because of their working breed history, Siberians need to have a constructive way to burn off that energy, or they will find a destructive way. And, yes, this translates to most active, working breeds who have energy that needs to be burned.

Sometimes, though, there is something even better than a Tired Sibe.

Yesterday’s weather was nearly picture perfect for fall – sunny and cool. So, of course, we found ourselves on hiking trails enjoying the beauty of the day.

So with the sleepy faces you see above, what could possibly be better than a tired Sibe?

New saying - "A Tuckered Typhoon is Terrific." - better than a tired sibe

New saying – “A Tuckered Typhoon is Terrific” and definitely better than an ordinary Tired Sibe.

P.S. – Hu-Dad also took some photographs without us as the subject (We know, we don’t understand either) and posted those on this blog.

    With the repetition of ‘tired’, I was starting to guess… it was the same with Gatsby! Tired was good, but it was still tiring watching her sleepily follow us back and forth. Knackered, and therefore asleep at last, was even better!
