10 Months Old Today

Human Lance's Trail Camera
I am 10 months old today and have been with my humans about 8 months. Yesterday I saw snow on the ground I think for the first time. Maybe I saw it when I was a baby, but I don't really remember. It's cold and wet I noticed and it makes it hard to smell what's under it too. But it sorta tastes good.

I remember awhile ago that some white stuff was falling from the sky and I had fun catching it, but it wasn't on the ground. I think I like it. It's cooler now, which I like much better. Lately my human, Lance, has been brushing me and you should see the piles of fur that come off. You'd think I'd be naked after all that brushing, but thankfully I've still got my winter coat.

Sometimes my humans put on this contraption that they call a harness. I'm told that someday I could learn to pull stuff. Okay, whatever that means. I think I pull stuff just fine right now without a harness, but I guess they know best. All I know is that there is something about this time of year that I like. I'll keep you posted.

Bye for now,

Routine Is Good

I'm growing up!
I like routine, there I've said it. When we go on trips overnight, it's okay for a day or two, but then I want to go HOME! All my toys are there, I know where to sleep and eat and drink. Sure I get lots of exercise, but everything is better at home.

Last week we started a sort of new routine, I think. One day we went for a long, long walk. By the time I got home all I wanted to do was plop down for a nap - so I did. Two days later we went to the doggy park and even when no one is there it's FUN. I ran and ran and ran. We played hide and seek, fetch (my way) and all the sniffing I could stand. We went home and plop I went for a nap. And two days later we did it again!

The other routine we have is that I'm wild and crazy just before bed. It works for me, but my humans don't appreciate my high energy at that time of night. What can I say, it helps me sleep to release a little energy before bed time. They'll get used to it :D

All in all, routine is good. Don't get me wrong, I like surprises once and a while, especially when they involve treats, but I need me some routine sometimes to keep me relaxed. Wake up, potty outside, eat, drink, play, nap and repeat. After supper I love to go for a walk or run at the doggy park and just before bed, go potty outside, run around like a maniac and then to bed. Nothing to it.

Mostly my humans keep my routine pretty steady and I appreciate that cuz I always gotta know where to sleep, eat, drink and go potty. All the rest usually works out. I'll keep you posted.

Bye for now,

Husky Tricks

My humans laughed and laughed at this photo. I don't get it! I do those tricks all the time, what are they laughing at? I mean I know that when they say "sit" my butt is supposed to go to the floor, but sometimes I just don't feel like it. I can be persuaded with treats occasionally though. The "fetch" one I don't quite do like that. I find the ball and stay right there so my humans can find it. Pretty nice if you ask me.

Buring and Digging

My name is Loki. I am a single, brown & white Siberian Husky, with copper eyes. I am 9 months, 25 days old and am 57 pounds of pure energy. I like long walks in the woods, playing tug with almost anything and learning new stuff all the time. Am I a great catch or what?
