Well, it's snowing here in the Hudson Valley and we have some very happy Huskies! The beautiful snowfall has inspired me to focus on a favorite Flashback Friday photo of my furangel Gibson, who I believe loved the snow more than any other dog I've ever had! This photo captures the true spirit of a Husky. While they all loved snow, Gibson soaked it up as though he were lying on a beach! Being a Husky, and a wooly one at that, when it snowed I'd be hard pressed to convince this snowdog to come inside! He loved to lay down on the snow, upside down with his belly to the heavens, feeling the cool flakes pile up on him! One time, it was hard to tell there was even a dog under all the snow! To say this breed was born to love snow is an understatement! Although, and they always say there is an exception to the rule, little sis Chloe (our "tropical Husky" never received the snowdog memo, and she prefers her days to basking in sunbeams! I love the above photo of my boy...the poster dog for Siberian Huskies and their love of the snow!
There is something so peaceful, yet exhilarating about a fresh snowfall. The world newly blanketed in shimmering white is so peaceful. It's a feeling I'd love to capture and keep with me always. I certainly understand why my FiveSibes love it so.
Even our senior gal Harley who, at 13.5, still loves to zoomie around in the freshly fallen snow! With my Huskies now senior dogs, I do get a bit apprehensive about her and my arthritic gal Chloe (her legs are "full of arthritis" at an early age due to emergency bilateral imbrication surgeries back when she was three when she blew out both CCLs and meniscuses. You can read all about her journey in my "For the Love of Chloe" post). But, as any Husky parent can tell you, you sprinkle a little snow, and while I feel the gray hairs growing, Siberian Huskies "just wanna have fun!"
Today, we are now at about the 8" mark in freshly fallen snow, and the FiveSibes tribe of investigators set out to literally sniff out every square inch of snow in our yard!
