Making The Bed

With six Siberian Huskies, household chores may not be quite the same as in canine-free homes. For example, making the bed takes on a new meaning.

Oh, hi, Hu-Dad. Did not hear you coming into the bedroom.

Kiska takes her job as Chief of Security quite seriously. She patrols the perimeter of Sibe Quentin several times a day and is always the first to sound the alarm if any strange creature gets near the fence. Assuming your definition of “near” is “within a half mile or so.”

Let's just say I am zealous in my duties.

She is also known as the Fun Police because she is always yelling at younger canines who get on her nerves for their exuberant games. Let’s just say that she believes firmly in a strict speed limit inside the house and certain young members of The Herd don’t share that belief.

But when the young-un's are not around!

Off duty from her security and fun police roles, however, Kiska is quite the cuddler and the clown. And making the bed is one of her favorite games. As long as no youngsters are around to catch her soft side.

Shhhh. I hear them. Time to be serious.

    Mom sez: Whoa! I almost didn’t recognize Kiska! She appears to have lost all her long coat, looks much more like her short-haired brothers and sisters now! I’m happy to see she has a “fun side” to her. She and our Ebby would get along fine, with their “bed-making skills”!

    Our Holly also sports the nickname of “The Fun Police.” She has taken on the same duties as Kiska. Must be a senior thing. 🙂

    This only makes sense – every female has hidden depths. Adorable photos!

    You have been hiding an adorable side of Kiska from us! I….had no idea she played! The illusion is shattered!

    I can’t even tell you how much I enjoy reading about the Thundering Herd. We are Husky Hijinx…and I thought four was a lot of Huskies, but I think after four, it wouldn’t matter if there were a couple more, except when it came time for walks! It’s fun to see that ours aren’t the only ones that have a fun police and one that makes the bed! Daisy May, our youngest, has her own facebook page! You should check it out some time!

For Siberian Huskies, snow is a very serious business (and our reactions to the lack of snow is proof). Thus, we need to share our serious snow faces.
