Evening Deck Games

Our warm spring-like weather has been perfect for Siberian Deck Games so today’s post is designed to give you an idea of the chaos that means.

The humans might have a vision of sitting quietly on the deck, sipping their beverages, and watching the sky colors created by the sunset, but we canines have other plans. Landon is forever trying to instigate games with Frankie who resists as much as he can. And Cheoah debates whether we should take a quick walk.

Don't forget the umbrella if we go walking.

But the real trouble can be found wherever the Little Prince and his shadow, Roscoe, can be found, which is usually trying to distract the humans from their beverages.

If I am quick enough, they will never notice.

Don’t worry, the humans don’t ever allow we canines to imbibe, though this last photograph may leave you questioning that assertion.

What have you been into Roscoe?

    I think Roscoe has been partaking when you’re distracted. I’m sure the Herd has it figured out…who distracts, who gives an all clear signal, etc. Surprised Cheese is participating. Nice distraction tactics Cheoh! We all like to think we’re more intelligent than our dogs, when really we’re just their pawns!????

    My husky used to love sneaking sips from my iced tea. I miss him so much. I hope Miss Cheesy got her walk.

    Enjoy that deck time whilst you can. When spring is done it will be greenhead fly season. You may have to run back to the mountains for a couple of months. 🙂 Their beverage of choice does not come in a glass. 🙂

    Today’s post was SO funny-the last picture is really something that will bring laughs. It DOES look like a dog who has had a bit of something strong-lol. I KNOW they haven’t-just too funny!!!
