Caught Coveting Kibble

Our meals are served in our crates so that we may eat at our own pace, but that doesn’t stop our neighbor from coveting kibble.

Typhoon coveting kibble in Cheoah’s bowl

With six of us eating at the same time, Hu-Dad long ago decided to calm meal times by serving us in our crates. With closed doors, each of us can eat as fast or slow as we want without worry that a neighbor may try to take our food. That does not prevent a neighbor from drooling heavily as in this case.

Cheoah’s appetite has always waned when the warmer summer months arrive. She eats quite slowly, much slower than anyone else, though she does eventually finish her meal.

And Typhoon, that’s to his medication routine, continues to have a healthy appetite and eats quite quickly. Since they are neighbors, discussions often arise about Cheoah sharing some of her dinner. She always refuses, but savors every last morsel very, very, very slowly.

The feety-feet stomping temper-tantrum when she licked her bowl clean.

    Feeding 12 Siberians at one time can be a challenge! I get Nikki, Scarlette, and Echo in their crates then Sasha, Hitch, Juno, and Dutch in their crates in the garage then Alaskan Malamutes King and Elsa on the backyard deck and Shanti and Crimson in the kitchen when it is feeding time around 4pm.. Cali is on her own schedule and wants to eat in the morning after her 2 mile walk! Siberians Rules at Husky Haven in Little Switzerland, NC!

    It’s AWESOME to see you coveting food Typhoon!! I agree Hu-Dad could add a little extra kibble to your bowl once in a while. Cheoah, you take your time and savor every bite of your food. It is harder to eat during warmer temps for me as well.

    Typhoon, tell Hu dad that he could sneak a few extra bites of kibble in your bowl….no one will notice! It has to drive you nuts that your sister eats so slowly. Glad to see you have an appetite!

    It’s great that Typhoon is coveting food!

We Had A Little Snow

Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
