I know that, I'm okay with it. It is one of the things a Siberian owner just has to come to grips with. However, shouldn't there be a maximum age on that?? Apparently not!!
The other night when Mark when out to feed Geriatric Park he commented that there was a 'breech' at the Park. Instead of 4 dogs in each pen, there were 2 in one pen and 6 in the other. Hmmm.
This is the problem.
Notice that we have attempted to temporarily block the hole with some tires. That was really effective. Last night when I fed there was 4 dogs in each pen - the wrong four - but four none the less.
I queried the residents of 'G.Park' to see if they knew how that hole got there.
Actually, before I go further, let me mention that I suggested that if I was going to take pictures of them today, it would be nice if they all let me do some plucking of their shedding coats. They looked at me with HORROR. I tried snuggling with them and then snatching a few clumps of hair while they weren't looking but they bolted away from me VERY annoyed. They claim that they are all old and have earned their right to 'dress in plaid pants' or 'wear purple hats'. I conceded the point, so they are 'dressed' as they see fit for their photographs.
The first dog I asked was Mannie. At 14 1/2, he is the most senior resident of 'The Park'.
He was SHOCKED at the suggestion that he might be involved.
Then there is Nik...
"Joey - do you know anything about this hole??"
"Loki - you are only 10 1/2. Maybe you had something to do with it?"
How could that face do anything wrong??
I moved over to the other side of 'The Park'.
Now this is the side that has built a temple to honor their water bucket -
...surely I would find the guilty party here.
Next I questioned Camilla and Jumpy (both turning 14 in a month or two).
That left Kaylinn. She turned 14 in May and is deaf as a post.
Have at it Kids!!
