Sitka has been claimed...

Sitka the little wandering dog was returned to his owners this afternoon. He must have been playing in the green belt and got disorientated. His house is almost directly behind ours, if you could walk through the mess of fallen trees for a few kilometres!

He went home with a spiffy leather collar on. I hated that choke chain. He was thrilled to see his people, jumped all over them and then made himself comfy in front of the woodstove. Given the amount of noise he made last night, I'm sure my neighbors will be glad he didn't stay any longer too!

Is he yours?

Is this your dog? Or do you know where he belongs?

He caused a big ruckus in my yard today, then followed me back through the gate like he belonged here! Which he does NOT!

Anyone missing a young male shepherd mix in the Mary Lake area?

A little lesson from Founder...

Never let the little things get you down, at least not for too long.

Two days is plenty of time to recover from surgery! A conehead and a couple dozen stitches are no reason not to enjoy some time with your best buddy!

If only humans could recover as fast and with as little complaining as dogs do!

The other lesson learned again--Leaving Ozzy in the main yard when no one is home to supervise his little troublemaking butt is a bad idea! Something bad will happen and it will usually involve a vet bill!

Ah snow....

Sunday morning, I was awoken by some very noisy huskies who were very excited about the first snowfall of the season.

By Monday morning, it looked more like this! Actually, this was after running a couple kilometres.

The team looked more like this coming out of the yard--all messed up! Hook-up was a bit of a gong show, but once we got going, the run went quite well. It's much easier to leave smoothly when someone is home to help!

The little nutball is learning to lead and doing fairly well. She still has puppy brain so occasionally Paxil has to tell her off! Paxil does not put up with much from her leading partners!

Just coming back into our yard.

I need to increase their mileage very soon. Tehya wasn't tired for a second by a five mile loop. She was harassing Anvik before I even got his harness off!

Muskwa opted to stay on the couch, which he has claimed as his own recently. He's a little put out that Stuart left him behind this time!
