Ringside Seat

All Hu-Dad wanted was some photographs for the blog and he ended up with a ringside seat to a furry round of Siberian Husky games.

The Hu-Dad doesn’t ask for much—just well-behaved Siberian Huskies posing nicely for photographs daily. Oh, wait, that’s a huge ask.

The good news for the Hu-Dad is he had the perfect ringside seat for the explosion of games. The bad news is he could get trampled.

We KNOW Typhoon isn't whispering sweet nothings

But he hung in there, kept snapping away with photos, some of them even focus enough to be used for the blog. Well, a few of them.

Things are about to get serious

For the safety of our photographer aka Hu-Dad, we will end the blog right here before the trampling begins.

Too late. The photographer has been trampled

    does it ever escalate from play to a serious fight Hu-Dad?
    some play can get very scary to me! I guess I’d have to be a sibe to understand! xo

      Fortunately, the boys have always gotten along well. Typhoon has a temper (that’s a shock) and will snap sometimes, but Roscoe always backs up and things are instantly fine.

      The girls over the years are a totally different thing.

    Roscoe nibbles and Typhoon plants a shark bite. 😀

      That sums them up perfectly.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
