View From On High

Our view from on high can be quite useful for bird and people watching, but Roscoe has found an additional benefit.

Since our house is built on stilts, we have two floors above the ground level with a deck at each level. The main level has a roof and is a good place to spend the hot afternoons, but the upper level is great in the morning and later in the evening. Both the dogs and humans enjoy the view, but Hu-Dad noticed Roscoe has added a new purpose to his routine.

Bet you are wondering what I am watching

To understand what Roscoe is doing, you have to remember that his best pal and big brother Typhoon has a reputation for being a bit grouchy. In the mornings, the grump factor can be quite high. During the morning turnout, Roscoe has decided to scan the weather just like the rest of us, but he’s looking for a different storminess.

Is Typhoon a gathering storm cloud or bright and sunny this morning?

P.S. – Notice the Hu-Dad is upstairs with Roscoe too.

Lap Dog

When you are 60 lbs (27kg) of Siberian Husky, there are people who say you should no longer be a lap dog. Kodiak heartily disagrees.
