Kiska Evening of Photographs On Her Porch

After dinner last night, Hu-Dad hung out with his camera on the senior porch for a little Kiska evening photography. She just wanted to go inside.

Kiska’s wooly coat requires a great deal of grooming to keep it looking good. To compensate for the weakness in her back legs, Hu-Dad keeps grooming time until short little bursts to avoid too much strain. He also mixes in a little photography time.

Are we done yet?

Are we done yet?

Unfortunately, Kiska’s definition of long enough is a wee bit shorter than the Hu-Dad’s which inevitably leads to a discussion like this.

I'm done. Let's go inside.

    Sweet Kiska. Would she tolerate a sling for grooming? I used one on my old 15 year old so I could brush her. She was was a lab mix though and it didn’t take as long to brush her out.

      We use the sling from time to time while walking. She’s not a big fan of it, but tolerates it.

    What’s causing the weakness in Miss Kiska’s legs? I have a senior Husky Miss Cheyenne 12 & she’s a wooly also. She sends soft woos to a fellow senior girl Kiska
