Our winter may have been a little slow getting to us, but we are having an absolutely super Siberian snow season!
Our high yesterday was not quite 16ºF (-9ºC) with a nice little 20 mph breeze cooling things off. And, yes, constantly falling snow showers for the second day in a row.
When you are a Siberian Husky, there is no day better than a cold, dreary, not-fit-for-humans wintry day and we made the best of it.
Based on the current forecast, we can expect at least another day of snow and will not see temperatures above freezing until some time next week.
Hu-Dad checks on us regularly, but the great outdoors is where we want to be with such perfect weather. Even when napping.
For those dogs who need the shelter, let them inside on such cold days. For us, you can’t drag us inside.
The Typhoon fan club kicked it into gear and surpassed perennial Valentines winner Frankie in terms of total Valentines received to date – 82 – 52. And Typhoon’s contributions kicked him up to third place with $201 to Qannik’s $355 and Natasha’s $461. Total contributions to date are now at $1440! Our readers rock!
The days are slipping away and our annual Valentines Hearts for the Herd contest is almost over. To participate, just mail a Valentine to Dog’s Name, PO Box 1835, Maggie Valley, NC 28751. And, if you wish, enclose a check made payable to Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation. Every single penny of contributions is given to the wonderful Sarge’s organization to rescue homeless dogs and cats.

Undercarriage Dog Wash
Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
I literally cannot get my husky inside during this cold weather. Even when I convince her to come in she will start talking to me immediately wanting to go back out. It’s so different from my boxer. Love my Husky!
Love these pups. If the queen doesn’t want to come in, the queen doesn’t come in. Qannik makes a perfect snowball.
Have a blast in that perfect Sibe weather sweethearts❤️?
Mom sez: Ice ‘n Ebby would be SOOO happy to have what you’ve got. We have the colder temperatures, but NO snow to go along with them. You are so lucky. Enjoy for us, toooooowoooo!
