Fluffy Tail Alert

With movement in the lower field yesterday evening, Landon called a fluffy tail alert and requested backup from his sister.

Whoa! What's that? Fluffy tail alert.

Whoa! What’s that? Fluffy tail alert.

The sun had set, the sky was growing dark, and The Herd was performing final patrol of the yard. Something moved in the shadows of the lower field and caught Landon’s attention. How do we know? Check out the fluffy tail at full alert! And then he raced to the fence to check out what was going on with backup from his redheaded sister.

Don't worry, Landon, right behind you.

Don’t worry, Landon, right behind you.

The intruder, whatever it was (Hu-Dad never got a good look), disappeared into the forest and Chez Herd was safe again. And someone was quite proud of his abilities to defend home.

No interlopers when my fluffy tail and I are on patrol.

    He does have one of the most impressive tails I’ve seen on a husky. It looks like it’s longer too.
