Pack Cohesion

Woo. Dave here. A lot of bipeds ask how it is that all four of us get along so well and what the big "trick" is for pack cohesion. "Trick"? We are Siberian Huskies; we don't do "tricks". That's one of Stormy's rules! I try to follow her rules -- I mean ... she's the alpha and all (within the pack, that is!) but the truth is, we don't always see eye-t0-eye.

See what I mean? That's her in the foreground and me in the background (above). Obviously, she's looking at things one way ... and I'm looking at things totally the other way.

The bipeds have this belief that "A tired Siberian is a good Siberian" and think that's one of the big things that helps contribute to pack harmony. Maybe. They also give us jobs, and I like that. We take it to the next level; we like to find a task and tackle it together -- working together builds strong bonds! Teamwork - that's a great trait of Siberians!

The other night, for example, Mom was going through her big notebooks of quilt patterns. Storm and I thought it would be really helpful if we went through the books with her. Help her out, you know? Me and Storm, working together to help Mom. Here we are:

Pretty helpful, aren't we? Mom always says funny things about the size of our house and why we're always all right on top of each other. How else are we going to help? Anywoo, it was a great bonding experience.

We were exhausted afterwards and went in the other room to do some more bonding. It's tough work... but somepuppy's gotta do it.



  1. Team work for the working breed. Woooo!

  2. You guys are smart.

    You let Stormy lead the pack.

    girl power!

  3. Team work, yeah, team work.

  4. We "work" together as a team too, it's really the only way, at least in Sibe Land. That's funny, our lady is always wooing at us about how there's the whole house but we always have to conduct "FightClub" right under her feet (hey, how else are we going to get someone to ref these matches)!
    Great pictures you guys!
    Face Licks, M&M

  5. I'm SOOOOOO impressed - nice work!


  6. We are a pack too even though we came to live with Mom at different times. Sometimes wee fight with each other but if someone else is bothering us ... watch out! It's good to have pack mates to watch your back.

  7. Hee hee, are you doing Doga in that picture?

  8. Love the "air it out" pose. Sam, Abby and I do that alot when we sleep. After all, the tummy needs air too!!

  9. I love your work ethic! Especially the bed part!

    sorry I have been quiet but we have picture probs and computer probs....

    hope to be back to normal very shortly, my Pa is trying to sort the technical stuff out for Jeannie this weekend. love and licks Marv x x x x

  10. Tubey: Exactly!

    Chelsea: Hmm... I better not woo anything here. But Stormy IS really smart!

    D'Azuls: It's like we were BORN to work together! Woo.

    M x 2: Our mom says the same thing when Zim and I do "Fight Club". Isn't that weird?

    Bogart: Thank woo. We're putting the "Working" in "Working Breed".

    Dachsies: Exactly! We've always got each others' "6" covered!

    T-man: Ha woo. That's Storm. She said it's important to stay flexible.

    Holly: Yes! My tummy gets hot, too, so I have to air it out.

    Marvin: We do work SO hard around here-- it's exHAUSTing! Hope you get your computer problems worked out!


  11. we do team work like this to help mom reads the paper on teh floor. the floor is our territory, not hers.
