I thought I'd give you more of an inside look into our walks. It's not all "straight ahead and pull like a ... well... like a Siberian Husky" - though we certainly do a lot of that! Check out this picture of Stormy and me:
Stormy had just told me a really funny joke. Ammy's not the only comedian in the family; Storm can be a riot when you get her going!
Speaking of Ammy, let's look over and see what she's doing:
That's right. She's herding Dad. She loves to herd him and Mom. She's really good at it, too. Did you know the Chukchi tribesmen used our ancestors to herd reindeer? Yep. Pulling sleds, keeping bipeds warm, and herding reindeer. Pretty cool, huh? So Ammy likes to honor our ancestors and do a little herding as we go.
On this walk, Dave was pretty much all about the pulling, so he's in the group shots in the end.
And me? I love to explore everything, stop and smell the roses (or whatever) along the way, meet new friends - you know! Anyway, that day was no different ... and look! A new fluffy friend!
He was pretty cool. Loved his colors and his fluff. Here's a shot of just him:
Please understand that I did not hurt my new friend, Mr. Wooly Bully; I was very gentle. He even tried to follow us on our walk, but couldn't quite keep up.
Here's another one of Ammy's favorite tricks:
Oh, wait... I smell something really important over here...
Stormy is so proud of Amber's bamboozling skills! Or as Storm likes to say, "Who put the 'am' in 'bamboozle'?" Ha roo roo roo - I told you Storm is funny!
Lastly, here's a collage of all four of us, enjoying the day together:
You can click that to go to FlickR for a larger view, if you'd like! And remember our leash color-coding: Stormy is red, Ammy is green, Dave is purple, and I am blue!
Thanks for coming on our walk with us!
