The sun had disappeared behind the mountain. Dark crept across the yard. Movement deep in the field. And a Senior Security Alert sounded.
Most days now, Kiska will perform her security alert duties from the deck. She will sound the alarm. Dogs will race to the fence. They will warn the intruder away. And they will return to her and give a report.
But, last night, whatever moved in the field required Miss Kiska’s personal attention. Hu-Dad has no idea what was out there because it was near dark (the photographs have been enhanced for clarification, but humans could barely see). With Miss Kiska’s warning, however, the creature slunk off into the woods and left Chez Herd safe.
Well done, Miss Kiska.
Movie Memory Monday
This week’s Movie Memory Monday takes us back to 2010 with a mix of some of today’s seniors being much younger as well as some of the dogs who have since passed from our life. We are enjoying a beautiful fall day and doing a little mushing training runs. Yes, we are quite the amateurs, but this is a great way to exercise when you are a working dog.

Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
She’s a wise girl.
Miss Kiska you’re still the Chief!!
Miss Kiska-you showed them when you REALLY need to chase something away-you still can. You showed the rest of the herd-I STILL have it!!!
