Just A Walk In The Park

Sometimes, you don’t need exciting things to happen to make for a great day. Sometimes, just a walk in the park is enough.

The French Broad River Park in Asheville was largely empty due to a steady breeze and cool temperatures, but that just fits Siberian Husky desires. We did a couple of loops around the park while Hu-Dad focused on taking photos of the river.

During the summer, the river is filled with rafts, tubes, and kayaks, but the frigid weather ensured that we were able to just watch the river amble along.

Don’t worry. Hu-Dad took lots of pictures of us, too, but they all had the same view as the first picture. Shrug. If you are not the lead dog, the view never changes.

    Ohh the pretty (and handsome sorry boys) fluffy Sibey Butts.

    I’m bet Q was discussing (reminding) with TyTy “don’t act up just because the patrol officer is as far away as she can get from you. “.

      He very much still walks backwards during our walks. Sometimes he messes us up by being normal.

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
