Yet Even More Rainy Day Reactions

Our dreary, drizzly weather continues unabated leaving a bigger Sea of Siberian Sighs. So we share even more rainy day reactions.

In fairness, Cheoah can be found in the same spot on sunny days, so that may not be a good comparison of the rainy day blahs. But her brothers were no more excited with the weather.

Yes, Hu-Dad’s study was littered with snoring Siberians. Every few minutes, one pup or another would ask to go outside, but they always returned quickly with the same dismal weather report. Even the youngsters were displeased with the continued drizzle.

Someone wake us when either the snow or sun returns.

Someone wake us when either the snow or sun returns. And don’t you even think of plucking me.

For fans of Hu-Dad’s photography, a new post can be found here.

    Mom sez: When it came to “grooming”, Ice was our “weird one”. Show him a brush, and he disappeared into his house FAST, but he’d stand and let you pluck him until “the cows came home”! Ebby is even weirder (if there is such a word). She’ll let us pluck, or brush all day, quite happily.

    Have you ever though of renting Typhoon out? Let me rent him for a day for plucking? I pluck, he can play with Leena, I’ll return later in the day. That way he hates me for grooming, gets groomed, and doesn’t destroy your world during plucking 😛

    I am a serial plucker with my Akitas… I think I’d be guilty of drive-bys with poor Typhoon ???????? But he’s so cute with his little fluffs sticking out!!!!

    Can you pluck Boom Boom?
    I don’t know how you restrain yourself when it comes to Typhoon…

      Landon does not care at all. He doesn’t sit still very well, but that is just an energy level.

      Typhoon is a quite frequent victim of drive-by pluckings.

    I so want to pluck a clump of white undercoat Typhoon!

    You are lucky, it is always rainy here in Micronesia. Short rain then sunshine, then rain again. And forget about snow! But still cooler than Philippines and I have a really big yard for my pups so I hope they can come here soon.
