Flashback Friday: Our Original Sled Dog

One of my all-time favorite photos from when my daughter was young was this one taken back 22 years ago with our adopted German Shepherd/Akita "Chelsey." Chelsey and Jenn were best buds. She was an amazing dog, who was so easy to train, and was such a good girl. She would listen to my commands, and perform them perfectly every time. If i asked her to "stay,"  no one, but me, could get her to move! I taught her to "watch" my daughter, which she always did. In this photo, my sister-in-law was creating a family photo album and was doing one of the winter months, and we decided a "reindog" photo would be cute with our girls. So, we staged the photo to look like I "Chelsey was hooked up to a sled with our girls on it in the snow! To this day, this photo brings a chuckle because my daughter and I dubbed it the "grumpy sled dog" photo because if you look closely at Chelsey, she looks like she is snarling and very unhappy. While she was not thrilled about the antler ears, she was actually munching on a dog biscuit (you can see a piece down by her paw) and the photo caught her mid-chew! BOL! I guess it was always meant to be that I would have sled dogs in my family! (Even though not one of my Huskies have ever pulled a sled! They are more the type to ride on one and be pulled! LOL)!
