The hu-dad had some work to do in our field (notice the bale of wheat straw on top of the Jeep – that is the last of them), so we got to go along for the ride. Good for us that we got to park under our tree while he worked. That made it much nicer to watch him sweat.
Hu-dad here. Sometimes you get the picture that you were meant to get, not the one you wanted. Such was the case Sunday evening. We were out far from other people and I was going to take a few pictures of The Herd. Suddenly, they all focused on something behind me. Really, really focused.
But no matter how much I looked, I could not figure out what had their attention. But they sure kept staring. Even as I moved around the Jeep so my back was no longer to whatever was out there. The Herd just kept staring.
No, I do not know what they saw, smelled, or heard. Turkey? Deer? Bear? Bobcat? I will never know; I only know they were very, very interested.
Yesterday’s pictures showed us hiking in a little rain. To answer the question asked a few times, no it did not start raining about halfway into our hike. It was raining when we started. Shrug. A little weather does not slow us down. Well, except for heat. That we don’t like.
So after our hiking in the rain, we get back to the Jeep. Oh, did we forget to put the windows in the Jeep? We never seem to have those windows in.

Yes, we do get to go on some cool adventures and we owe it all to the fantastic rescues that guided us to our forever homes. For our 1000th Post Contest (full details here), we wanted to give back by selecting one animal charity and giving them $50. Three days in, and we have a lot of great organizations nominated. Remember, this is not a vote, but the more nominations each group receives, the better their odds of being drawn as the winner at the end of next week. The vote count as of about 9 pm (EDT) last night:
Texas Husky Rescue – 13 Nominations
Adopt-A-Husky – 3
Buddy Foundation – 1
Freedom Rescue – 1
Remember – One submission per person per day – but nothing wrong with letting your friends know so they can come by and drop us a comment. We love learning about all of the terrific people out there helping our animal friends every day.
The hu-dad says we have run pictures like the above way too many times. The humans stop and have pizza and beer, or BBQ and beer, or Mexican food and beer – well, you get the picture – and leave us starving puppies out in the car. For some reason, the hu-dad thinks that is an unfair characterization of what happens. He said far more likely is that while he is getting food, we are being disloyal and sharing our Siberianess with passers-by like this -
But do any of them have food? Are they feeding us? So go ahead and take your pictures while you sip your beer and eat pizza, hu-dad, but this should not alleviate your guilt.
P.S. – Have no fear. The temperature was around 25F (-4C), so the dogs in the neighboring car were not in any danger (and their humans were just a few feet away). Oh, and The Herd wears seat belts, so there was no escaping the Jeep.
