Fun With Unknown Cousins

We had fun with some unknown cousins yesterday, though we can’t figure out why Hu-Dad doesn’t know their names.

Unknown Cousins

Typhoon would like to report on how much fun we had yesterday. We aren’t talking about his dirt eating, though that was fun and obvious if you look at his mouth. We are talking about our unknown cousins, the other family of Siberian Huskies in our neighborhood we see sometimes during our walk. We would tell you their names but, for some odd reason, Hu-Dad has never heard their humans clearly enough to understand. Not sure why, because we could all sure hear each other speaking Siberian to each other really, really, really, really loudly. We get so excited seeing our own kind we just have to talk. Maybe next time, Hu-Dad will listen a little more carefully.

    Dirt eating is usually because your dog is looking for something they cannot get in their diet (especially if they have digestive issues). I have dogs that do it too. I found that Dogs Naturally Magazine Protect (soil based probotics) helps them eat less dirt. Dogs know what helps them. I have dogs that also eat chickweed and other nutritious weeds (that are safe as I researched it) to help them.

    LOL! delightful!
    they would have to stretch a bit to reach the bar you’ve placed in naming your herd.
    I’m glad they have cousins living nearby!

    It was always fun to watch Juno excited to greet other huskies. She also liked Collies, Akitas and Berners, but little reaction to other breeds, unless it was a un-neutered male. Then it could be any breed, any size. She was so funny.

    Dirt eating is so messy. My late Willie only ate Vermont muck when hiking, and I never knew why. I love it when we meet another Husky and they talk to each other. I know Ruby would love to meet The Herd out in the “wilds”.

    Oh Typhoon-eating dirt-YUCK! As far as your neighbor’s Siberians-maybe if the Herd wasn’t acting all jumpy and talking-Hu-Dad might hear their names!!!

Undercarriage Dog Wash

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
