Hu-Dad’s Biggest Challenge

We like to keep our Hu-Dad guessing, but the weather this week had provided him the biggest challenge in living with a Herd of Siberian Huskies.

More rain, Hu-Dad?

More rain, Hu-Dad?

As you notice, Typhoon’s fur continues to grow back quite slowly. On the bright side, he continues to eat and gain weight. We have added a melatonin supplement so that he might actually have a warm belly this winter. The boy does like to challenge the Hu-Dad.

But, no, that is not the greatest challenge. With another day of rainy, dreary weather, the challenge was much, much bigger:

Entertain me. You don't want me bored.

Entertain me. You don’t want me bored.

    Vox feels you Typhoon! He had surgery from a dog attack last JANUARY and his hair still hasn’t grown in yet. We learned that when some dogs are shaved, especially a Husky, they can get a condition known as alopecia or alopecia x. I read that melatonin can work but I think Hu-Dad is just trying to make you sleepy. We’re using (our vet’s recommendation) a product called Essential 6 and it seems to be working. Melatonin is next on our list though. https://smile.amazon.com/Bayer-Dermoscent-Essential-Spot-Medium/dp/B06XJCJ725/dawnsparanormand <– yes includes a link to my referrer ID at amazon.

      Hu-Dad claims that Typhoon being a little more sleepy would just be a side effect. 🙂

    *haha* Yes, those eyes definitely say “You know what happens when I’m bored, Hu-Dad!” Find a chew bone… quick!!!! 🙂 So glad Typhoon is well on his way.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
