After yesterday’s efforts to get some good pictures (and, no, Huffle, we only showed you 5 shots – we had many more to choose from), we thought we would just share some pictures sitting on a hillside Sunday afternoon. Cheoah, who would never look at the camera   Qannik who was far more interested in…

Pictures of the Red Heads

March 23, 2009 |

A simple task.  All I want to do is get a picture of the three red-heads (Rusty, Kodiak, and Cheoah) as they are coming down the trail.  So all I have to do is get down the trail in front of them, turn, keep the other three dogs from tripping me with their leashes while…

Qannik Defends Us from an Intruder

March 21, 2009 |

After our buddy Bricey questioned Qannik’s masculinity and pointed out the dreaded Attack of the Dog Food Bag, Qannik has been looking for a video to redeem himself.  This is NOT it.  Sigh.

The Long Ride Home

March 20, 2009 |

Last weekend’s S-RV adventure was a lot of fun and we enjoyed sharing pictures and videos this week on the blog.  But, it was a long weekend and the ride home was pretty quiet, as shown by Cheoah and Kodiak: We wish everyone a Happy Spring Day!  While we are saddened to see winter slip…

Big Dogs – Up Close and Personal

March 17, 2009 |

As we said yesterday, we loaded the Herd into the S-RV (Siberian Recreational Vehicle) and took off to the beach.  On Saturday, we drove down to one of my favorite cities, Charleston, SC.  If you have never been, I highly recommend it.  The city was founded in 1670 and was one of the largest cities…

The weather forecast for this past weekend at the house was cold rain (2 inches (5 cm)).  Temps in the 30°’s F (low single digits celsius) with lots of rain and showers.  Yuck! Nope, believe it or not, that is not Cheoah’s face grimacing at the weather.  That is her entertaining herself by the “hooking…

We have complained before about Breedism, the assumption that a Siberian Husky is this poorly behaved wild child.  Where does that reputation come from?  Sigh.  Anyway, we have yet another example clipped out of our local newspaper: On a totally different topic, we posted this link on Sibernet-L, an internet list-serv for Siberian Husky fans,…

Nothing is quite as comfortable as a sunny day, a warm spot in the grass, and the relaxation that comes from a nice long walk.  Right Natasha? Ok, maybe there is one thing more comfortable.  Kodiak would like to explain.  Grass is nice, but Qannik makes the fluffiest pillow around.

Educating a Ranger

March 12, 2009 |

After a hike, I often use a picket line to let the dogs rest while I water them down.  The end result are pictures like this: Rusty   Kodiak   Kiska If you were to drive up on the scene, the purpose of the picket line would become abundantly clear as you looked over at…

Walking Wednesday – Mt Pisgah

March 11, 2009 |

We want to go up there.  Yep, from here.  First spring-like weekend of the year and the roads were open to get to one of our summer hiking trails, so we took advantage.  We have shown you panoramic views from the top a couple of times before – if you want to see them, check…
