|"Wooooo! It's zoomie time!"|

What's five Siberian Huskies to do when the main yard has been off limits due to being under construction for a deck extension for over a month? Throw in too many incredibly hot days with heat indexes over 105 degrees Farenheit, and exercise has been pretty much limited to lounging on the deck, chomping on the deck rails, splashing in the pool, making their own entryway from the deck into the house via a six-inch space next to the a/c in the dining room window frame, chewing the trim off the back door, chewing the aluminum siding on the back of the house, finding and chewing up stripped pine cones, bringing rocks on the deck, chewing up the mail on the kitchen table, sitting on top of the kitchen table, chewing on the window blinds to get a better look at Mr. Contractor, sleeping in the air conditioned house, and rolling over to a different snooze spot in the air conditioned house. Summer can really zap a Sibe's energy.
So, today, when the temps dropped to a wonderfully refreshing 70 degrees for a short time after some rain, they all headed outdoors and were enticed into a rigorous and very verbal round of smaller yard and deck zoomies by none other than the alpha queen momma, Harley!
I thought all was well until I found this note tucked into one of their dog dishes:
Please get the deck done soon so we can run again.
We have a bad case of the zoomies and playing
on the deck just isn't cutting it.
We are Huskies woo know,
and we are very bored now.
But we still love woo!

Dear Mr. Contractor.
Huskies should never ever be bored; it's dangerous to material things. So, please, hurry up and finish!
