Chasing Sun – The Struggle Is Real

We try every day to let you know how tough the life of a working breed dog is, so today we share the struggle of chasing sun.

Perfect placement with Mr. Sun.

The back wall of our house faces due east. The windows of the great room draw sun in for light and heat. Add the fact that we have radiant heat flooring, and the perfect napping spot can be found on toasty wooden floors in a sunbeam.

Where did my sun go?

Unfortunately, the rising sun rapidly moves across the floor. Naps have to be interrupted in order to move back into the sun.

It was perfect a minute ago.

Unfortunately, the process must be repeated several times throughout the morning.

    We don’t have much sun beams in the house, so the dogs went straight to the source. Outside.

    Cheesewhiz isn’t looking too happy with the running sun.

    Many times I have watched a Husky follow the sun in the house and the shade in the yard. The #1 amusing breed..

    Mom sez: Well, Cheoah, it just goes to show you that you can’t turn your back on that sun for even a moment, or it can disappear THAT fast. (Second photo)
