Working Breed Strikes Again

We Siberian Huskies are a working breed – canines bred to love the work we do. So, this weekend, we applied our best efforts.

One evening late last week,  we had a delivery to Chez Herd.

Ski season should begin next door at Cataloochee Ski in roughly 70 days. That also means that our fireplace will be hard at work keeping the house warm. Our firewood was dumped in a huge pile in front of the house, giving Hu-Dad a task to keep him busy this weekend.

Rain delay slowed the project down on Saturday.

The firewood had to be hauled down to the wood bins and stacked. Firewood left over from last winter was rotated to the front of the bins to be burned first. Let’s just say lots and lots of handling of firewood.

Wood bins fully loaded by Sunday afternoon.

You may be wondering what this has to do with we working dogs since Hu-Dad’s tractor was doing the hauling. The answer is quite simple.

Not our job.

We were snoozervising.

    They’re so glad you have a tractor so they didn’t have to haul the wood on sleds or something, whew!

      That would be the “vising” part of snoozervising.

    My Sibes, Silky and Nacho, would approve of your work ethic, puppies. Snoozing supervision is the way to go!
