Working Breed, Working Boom Boom

We Siberian Huskies are known for being quite the energetic working breed, as demonstrated by our very own Working Boom Boom.

After several days of warm, sunny, fall weather, we are about to take a decided turn toward winter for the rest of the week. Tuesday is supposed to bring a steady, cold rain followed by plummeting temperatures (and why couldn’t the temperature fall first to give us some glorious snow?). Everyone was trying to pack in a full day in the yard Monday before today’s yucky weather.

Frankie also got to spend much of the day outside, though under Hu-Dad’s direct supervision. Hu-Dad moved a laptop into the dining room so he could monitor Frankie’s activities while writing. Boom thought it was awesome having his brother in the yard even more, so he was fairly tired by the end of the day. Such is the life of a working dog.

Just going to close my eyes for a few minutes.

    Wow…the Herd is quite busy! My 2 Sibes have already had to go into cold mode here in the Midwest. That means wanting to go outside every 20 minutes. While our fence is waiting for repair, going out means a human chaperone. Me being the said chaperone, has a different idea of what’s fun, and what’s just plain miserable. As usual, the fluffy coated beings win out. Busy bunch, these Huskies, busy, busy…..

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: What a good boy, Landon. Out in the yard with Frankie, just to make sure he doesn’t overdo it! How considerate!

    Hoping you get snow soon so the games can begin.

    I don’t know how you Sibes do it all! Get some good rest Frankie and Boom Boom!

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
