It is still hot so we are still dreaming of a little snow. To tempt everyone, is a picture of Natasha in her very first winter.
Now as all good Siberians know, the phrase “come here” is a meaningless noise uttered by our humans which we are meant to ignore. Natasha demonstrates exactly how little it means when there is snow to be played in.
For those who may not have known the Herd for a long time, Natasha used to be “Baby Bear” long before she earned the nickname “Queen Natasha the Evil.” She came to us at all of 8 weeks old and was essentially raised in the Siberian ways by her “Mama Bear,” Nikita. Miss Nikita has been playing North of the Rainbow Bridge for almost two years now, but before she left us, she was responsible for the discipline of the Baby Bear. Here is a great example of how much she had to put up with.
And, sometimes, Nikita had simply had enough and decided she wanted inside and away from the insolent puppy. Here is one of those moments.
Finally, as we have mentioned before, there is no air conditioning in Chez Herd. While we want to have everyone’s great sympathy at times like this, the reality is that it never really gets that hot here (except for the last couple of days at the 80 F (27 C) mark). But here is how we really prefer the driveway and house – with snow on the ground. First shot is down the driveway and the second is of the house. Older picture since the old Siberian Utility Vehicles are still in the shot.
Happy snowy thoughts!
