Malamute Greetings

Wait, wait. Is the title of today’s post Malamute Greetings? But we are Siberian Huskies. How can this possibly be allowed?

Hu-Dad's photography skills were thwarted by a Kiska tail.

Hu-Dad’s photography skills were thwarted by a Kiska tail.

The original plan for today’s post was to tell you about our great walk with the Siberians in the South – Loki, Cesar and Yukon of Murrells Inlet, SC. That was a terrific plan until Hu-Dad examined his photographs from the walk and noticed each one of them had some gaping fault . . . like you couldn’t see all of our Red Headed friends because of Kiska’s big fluffy tail.

That’s ok, though, because our stories often end up being about something totally unplanned. Like, for example, this gorgeous Alaskan Malamute that we just happened to run into while walking with the Siberians in the South. Good thing he was calm. Until . . .

    It seems like your entire life is a series of unexpected episodes (combined with mishaps on the Hu-Dad’s part). Not that this is a bad thing, but it’s clearly never a dull moment with the Herd and the Hu-Dad! 😉

    Mom sez: The Mal doesn’t look aggressive, though. Looks more like “meet & greet” than “attack & eat”!
