Jingle Bells

February 24, 2009 |

Our buddy Simcha posted a great question on the comments Saturday: I always think of windchimes when I see videos of “The Herd”. Do you wear special tags to make this pretty noise? Is there a purpose behind it? I’ve always wondered. So let’s start with the purpose.  We live in the small town of Maggie…

How to Enjoy Snow

February 23, 2009 |

Snow is meant to be enjoyed totally and completely when you are a Siberian.  Don’t just walk in it – immerse yourself in it.  As demonstrated by a snow covered Cheoah and a happy Kiska: Me?  Drag my face in the snow?   Keeping the belly cool   Is this cool or what?

Big Dogs on the Road

February 16, 2009 |

We showed you Saturday some of the big dogs we ran into while out for a morning walk.  While driving away from Big Ridge State Park Sunday morning in the S-RV, we came around a corner and this funny looking big dog was in the road.  She did not seem too concerned that we were there…

Simple Saturday Night

February 15, 2009 |

Isn’t it funny how our definition of a good Saturday night changes as we get older?  To convert for our dog readers, this conversion chart says I am between 6 and 7 and this conversion chart says I am 8.  Either way, my idea of a perfect Saturday night is an idyllic camping spot watching…
