Nothing special for the first of March and we have continued with our usual games – which should be of no surprise to our regular readers.
It all began with Cheoah sitting in Hu-Dad’s lap getting her usual ear rubs and neck rubs. When a certain younger brother entered her radar, however, she knew the usual games were about to start.
First one dog, then another, then another had the advantage in the multi-party wrestling. The advantage of being the youngest member of The Herd is that you tire much more slowly than the others. When they decide to quit, you still have some energy. Which leads to this . . .

Canine Kitchen Flood
March 19, 2023
One of my dogs had an accident which resulted in a canine kitchen flood. No, no, not the way you just imagined. He’s more creative than that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
Mom sez: You are so right about Huskies liking “tight spaces”. Ice insists that the rug in front of the vanity in our ensuite bathroom is HIS private territory, and gets a totally pained expression at having to share the bathroom. Ebby also likes “tight spaces”, loves to come up on my recliner with me to cuddle, and wants to burrow her head under my arm. will stay like that until she gets too warm.
Yes, the young whipper-snappers can sure tire out the older folks! BOL!
Mya Boo Boo
Huskies are not claustrophobic at all and like tight little spaces to chill. My girl sleeps under my bed at night, shinnying under it like a rabbit. Had to raise it a few inches for her and all her stuffed animals are lined up along the wall under there, (by her.) It’s her cave. Pretty cute.
Does Typhoon tend to get into trouble with his leftover energy?
With or without leftover energy, Typhoon seems to figure out a way to find trouble. But, yes, not burning off that energy is a guarantee.
Why do you put your dogs in cages? It,s like the dogs are back in the animal shelter. I have a cat. I don,t put my cat in a cage. I really feel sorry for dogs. If i had a dog, I wouldn,t put him or her in a cage!!!
Look very carefully at those crates. You will notice that the doors are wide open.
Each member of The Herd has a crate outside and a second crate inside. They go into their crates when they want to nap or relax – and they do that totally on their own. And when they are done, they walk right back out the open door and join the others.
Crates provide dogs a “nest” or “home” that belongs just to them. They are a source of comfort.
My Koda loves to just chill in thr crate here. We ended up buying a second crate for our daughters puppy because the puppy and our newer dog Hazel couldn’t be trusted yet totally alone with run if the house like Koda at 6 can. So when the “girls” aren’t in the one in the living room, which was only his before Hazel, he goes in and just relaxes naps plays whatever. Just to say uh huh Hazel you’re only borrowing it, it’s still mine. lol.
That young whipper snapper! He’s just standing there waiting for more!!?
