Early To Rise

Early to bed and early to rise, makes a Siberian Husky healthy, wealthy, and wise—Frankie Suave (with a little help from Benjamin Franklin)

In yesterday’s post, we told how Frankie Suave is a big believer in an early bedtime. He also is awake before everyone else (except Hu-Dad who is a notorious morning person). Yesterday, he and Hu-Dad enjoyed the sunrise while everyone else slept (and Landon snored from his usual upside down position).

And birds. Don’t forget the birds

We hope you enjoy a few glorious sunrises this weekend. Just remember that Hu-Dad and Frankie will be watching them…even if everyone else is still asleep.

By the way…bonus photos. Here was the sunrise Frankie and Hu-Dad saw yesterday morning. They are being shared on Hu-Dad’s social media channels (dkwall.com), but we thought you might enjoy them too.

    Frankie looks so peaceful enjoying his early morning. Such a nice view to wake up to.

    Beautiful sunrise. Frankie is smart with his early to bed, early to rise, plan. That way he gets to spend special alone time with Hu-Dad and enjoy seeing the start of the day in peace and quiet. Of course there are always birds to see.

    You’re right, that is enjoyable.

    That is a view any Husky should be up early to see. We all need some nice sunny weather and a beautiful sunrise. Have a great weekend. Stay safe.

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
