Self-Cleaning Siberian Husky

After yesterday’s slipping and sliding in the mud, readers asked if Landon got a bath. Nope, because he is a self-cleaning Siberian Husky.

As we mentioned yesterday, Landon lost his footing doing zoomies around our muddy backyard and skidded on his face. The result can be seen above. Concerned readers asked if he got a bath afterwards, but the short answer is no. Our Hu-Dad jokes that Sibes are cats in dog suits and one of those traits is that we are a self-cleaning Siberian Husky. The dirt dries, we shake it off, add a little tongue and paw cleaning, and we’re as good as new. Of course, the next question is how long will Landon stay clean.

    They really are a self cleaning breed. White, red or black & white, give them a few hours and all is well. The only stain that didn’t come out right away was spaghetti sauce!!

      Hu-Dad spilled some red wine on Typhoon once. He claims Typhoon tripped him, but… Either way, it left a stain.

Lap Dog

January 28, 2010 |

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.
