There is Always One

Here we are – all five of us marching down the trail: Wait?  Five?  Kiska looks for the missing wonder. There is Rusty, off to the side and doing his own thing. There is always one, and it is usually the Rooster.

Fall Friday

As you may remember in this, this and this previous post, we showed you the view from our porch until the fall fogs settled in and then the first snow fell.  Well, I was standing out on the porch this morning and realized that it is, technically, still fall so thought I would share a…

Faster Than a Speeding Bullet

I would love to claim that I was trying to get this effect for the picture, but I must blame low light, slow shutter speed, and dogs in a hurry:

Breedism

Ok, now we are mad. No, not about the snow.  We love the snow.  We have snow up to our fuzzy, errr, tails and we are having a blast.  We are delirious about the snow.  We are running everywhere in the snow.  We are digging in the snow.  Even “I don’t like to be cold…

Rusty Clowning Around

Our friend Dannan commented that he did not know of a Siberian that gets cold. Well, Rusty would be the one.  He absolutely loves the snow, but hates the cold.  He will burrow under blankets and even is known to pull a blanket over him when he is sleeping.  And, best of all, on cold…

And Now for Something Completely Different

With our apologies to Monty Python for the title of this blog: Yes, that is sunrise over the beach.  Myrtle Beach SC.  The Herd was totally confused since we have snow on the ground at home, but we took off to the beach for a long weekend.  And here is the cool part.  The Herd…

Shadow and Skyler

Hello to Shadow and Skyler of Nashville, TN – two beautiful Siberian friends.  And how do I know them? In order to keep The Herd well fed, with couches and beds to lay on, and vet bills paid, I have to work.  And my work requires me to travel.  Monday morning, I was getting onto…

Corneal Infiltrates

Sorry for the technical title, but, during Natasha’s vet visit on Friday, we identified that she has Bi-Lateral (i.e., both eyes) Corneal Infiltrates (essentially the build up of fatty material in the cornea).  This is somewhat common in Siberian Huskies, but usually something detected when they are younger, not 5 1/2 years old like Natasha.
