Today’s photo essay is an explanation of the challenges Hu-Dad faces capturing usable photos of us every day in our race to the top.
Our normal story structure is an introductory sentence followed by a photo, then a paragraph, photo, paragraph, and closing photo (usually with a punchline to make you laugh). But we’re Siberian Huskies. We aren’t predictable. We don’t like routine.
And that’s today’s point.
Hu-Dad’s job is to capture three or four photographs a day of us to share with you. It sounds simple enough, but he says we don’t always cooperate. For example, yesterday morning, he sat on the steps coming up from the yard to capture images of Landon doing his jumping and leaping in his race to the top. He set his camera to fire at the fastest possible speed hoping to catch 2 or 3 non-blurry images.
So, of course, Landon didn’t race.
Enjoy today’s photos. (Note—You can click on a photo to start a slideshow. That might help with today’s story.)
So, yes, we have about a hundred photos of Landon’s “race” to the top.

A Walk on the Trashy Side
June 4, 2023
Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.

Chasing Sun – The Struggle Is Real
We try every day to let you know how tough the life of a working breed dog is, so today we share the struggle of chasing sun.
A Siberian husky is never late, never early….it arrives precisely when it is supposed to, which is when it damn well wants to…just like wizards.
That is why when my husband asks why I take so many pics of the dogs I explain that only 2 or 3 will capture what I am trying to capture. Of course I don’t delete any I take unless bleary (just a superstition on my part I think).
Karen said it best …
“they’re frustratingly awesome!”
but then I’ve never met a dog who wasn’t.
I just LOVE THEM ALL!!!
thanks for your patience and creative abilities Hu Dad! XO
Huskies are so frustratingly awesome!!
I think there is some Husky DNA in my corgi. It would explain so much!! She will turn into a stone statue if I want her to go one way and she has decided not going that way. My thought are with you Hu- Dad you have the patience of a Saint!!!?
Oh Hu-Dad what a LOT of work to just get Landon from bottom to top of steps! WHEW!!! You must have a ton of patience!
Just another fun day in the life of living with Huskies!!
