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. When my vet…

Halloween Mask

Ok, Halloween is over, but exactly what is Cheoah doing?  She hooks her upper lip on the crate and holds this look.  Expressing her dissatisfaction?  Practicing growling without straining a muscle?  Just being a kid and making faces?  Your best guess?

Siberian Recreational Vehicle

The bi-ped caretakers have grumbled a lot about how difficult it is to go anywhere for a weekend because of The Herd.  That’s right, amazingly, they sometimes want to be somewhere other than at the house taking care of 6 Siberians every night. Boarding The Herd is pretty expensive, we have had some bad experiences…

Favorite Signs of the Blue Ridge Parkway

We are blessed to live near the Blue Ridge Parkway. The road courses through the highest mountains of the Eastern U.S. through Virginia and North Carolina.  I have posted some of the scenery and trails, but today I wanted to share the signs.  First, my favorite sign warning motorcyclists about the dangers of sharp curves:…

A Sibe is a Sibe

I had to stop at my favorite pet supply store yesterday because I had to pick up new fleece crate liners (heaven forbid that The Herd actually just sleep on a blanket – only fleece for their fluffy butts).  When I parked the car and got out, I saw a beautiful white Sibe with blue…

Snow Picture

Sorry for the picture, but here is a cell phone picture taken early this morning of the driveway on the way to work.  As you can tell, a fairly light snowfall, but the furkids had a blast in it.
