If you’ve ever had a Siberian Husky, you’ll probably find that these drawings and captions are accurate. (Image from snowdog.guru.)
This 18-second Twitter video shows what you get when you mix a cookie monster with a Siberian Husky.
I was listening to Must Love Dogs while driving yesterday (I’ve watched it so many times, I don’t need to see it to know what’s going on), and it reminded me that when I write about dogs in my books — Rocky, Zeus, Suka, etc. — these are some of the Siberian Huskies I’m writing about.
While I’m sharing photos of Siberian Huskies I’ve known and loved, here’s one of Rocky working on a bone. My wife originally found him stuck in a cinder block in Virginia when he was probably about 18” long, and he became the first husky we’d know. He became famous for destroying furniture, howling, and running around saying words like “Oprah” and “Geraldo.”
One of my nieces (and/or her friends) seems to be interested in Siberian Huskies, which last night led me to dig out this old photo from a business newspaper in Louisville, Kentucky, in April, 2004.
Once upon a time there was a dog named Zeus. Before we met him, Zeus had a very difficult life, having been abused by two different owners. When my wife saw Zeus on a local tv station, and they said the Animal Care Society was going to be extremely careful about who adopted him next, she seemed to know that she had to take care of him.
As you can see from the following pictures, when we first adopted Zeus, he was very sick, with a horrible case of mange.
I don’t know the original source of this image, but I’m going to take it to my surgeon next week and see if he gets a laugh out of it.
Zeus, the Best Dog Ever, passed away on August 21, 2010. In an unrelated event, I almost kicked the bucket on the same day in 2016. That would have been kinda cool in that regard.
