Hu-Dad had one of those moments when he glanced out the window and saw one of Qannik’s old spots occupied by a different dog.
Frankie has taken quite a liking to the senior porch. The early morning sun hits it better than the other porch, so it is nice and warm on cold winter mornings. But it was a surprise to see him curled up in the exact same way in the exact same spot that Qannik used to nap. And just like the Q-Tip, he heard Hu-Dad sneaking some photographs and eyed him.
You may be wondering if Cheoah has claimed Kiska’s place on the senior porch. That would be a nope. Cheese likes her winter location just fine.

Canine Kitchen Flood
March 19, 2023
One of my dogs had an accident which resulted in a canine kitchen flood. No, no, not the way you just imagined. He’s more creative than that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
It made me smile and cry at the same time
So beautiful… enjoy every precious moment and every precious memory ????
This brought tears to my eyes. I’ve often wonder if our younger pack misses all the seniors we’ve lost. Our female Husky was raised by our old Black Lab. Tight bond. For weeks after he was gone, she sat in his spot in the driveway. It broke my heart to see her grieve. But, I have to remember….loving these 4 legged cliffs comes with so much more joy and comedy. The end comes too soon. Yet memories never fade. I don’t believe in closure when you lose a loved one. We get through it, never over it. I know Frankie feels Q there. Nothing more sweet…
Charlee: “We don’t have any dogs here right now but Dada says still sometimes thinks he sees Dennis on the sofa or in the bed.”
Chaplin: “Yes apparently all it takes is a brown blanket in the right spot wadded up the right way and Dada thinks it’s a vizsla.”
Charlee: “Don’t worry, Dada. Someday it will be a vizsla again.”
It makes me sad and happy when I see current dogs doing something that a dog that has passed on used to do. Sad because I reallly miss them and happy because it makes me think of the happy moments they were here. They say dogs leave pawprints on your heart and my heart is not a heart anymore, it is all full of pawprints. Hugs to all dogs and humans who love them.
Those old memories are bitter sweet. Maybe Quannik’s spirit visits occasionally.
Huskys are smarter than they think.
Makes you do a double take when you see an old favorite stop taken once again.
What a lovely way for Frankie to honor his brother Quannik by claiming his spot on the senior porch. Way to go and yep-you heard Hu-Dad snapping away with his pictures-right? Don’t blame you Cheoh for snoozing in the sun on the nice warm couch!
