Lazy Afternoon

We had a busy schedule with a couple of walks, play time in the backyard, and a lazy afternoon in Hu-Dad’s study.

We Siberian Huskies are a working breed, so we maintain a busy schedule. Yesterday, for example, we had a morning walk (followed by breakfast) and an afternoon walk (followed by dinner). We had a mid-day play session in the backyard and then a lazy afternoon in Hu-Dad’s study. You can see in the photo how hard we work. Don’t worry—we’re professionals.

    They look SO relaxed! Such a great schedule they have -walks-meals and then NAPS!!! I guess Hu-Dad has to jump over the sibes to get to his desk?

      Well, we certainly aren’t moving for him. Except Typhoon who has the unique ability to move in the worst possible direction at the worst possible time.

        I do know what you mean. My husband and I have made the big mistake of trying to get over Bradley and then he decides to GET UP!! It’s dangerous-for sure!

    Hi-Dad is lucky to have such professional workers. He must be so proud of you.
