Sunny Sibes On A Winter Day

After a week of ice and sleet, we woke up to a chilly but clear day. Perfect for some sunny Sibes to gather on the deck for warming.

Let’s get the first and most obvious question out of the way – Typhoon was spending the morning under the Hu-Dad’s feet in the study. Everyone else, though, was bored with the Hu-Dad’s busyness and opted to go outside. When Hu-Dad wandered past the window to check on them, he saw their game plan.

So warm.

So warm.

Yes, we might be a nordic breed that thrives in cold, wintry weather, but there is nothing wrong with recharging our solar batteries.

    Mom sez: Yes, Ebby does the same thing – sprawls out on our back deck, just at the top of the stairs, where she catches the sun for the longest period of time.
    Aside from that, I have a question: for photos like these, how do you catch them all lying down, not moving, when you are zooming in on them with a camera? Nobody moves. We have tried to get pictures of our Sibes in poses similar to this, but the moment any of them have sensed a camera, they immediately leap into action, and the moment is lost.

    They do look content. I think Cheoah likes when the boys hang out with her.

    Of course the sibes love the sun once in a while. LOVE that Typhoon was hanging out with Hu-Dad while the rest of the herd napped away!!!

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