Meet my OTHER children...

I'd like to introduce you to my other children...

The Dancing Paws

The Dancing Paws have been living in rather crowded quarters & with the arrival of the twins human puppy dogs, little time has been available to rectify this!! We've been busy building a home for us...time to build a home for my OTHER children...

Here we go!!!

This is the new 18' by 40' space :) Enough for all 7 of my huskies!!! It's been cleared. We took out 26 trees, bucked them up & burned off the brush... & now we've (er' Sean has) loaded & leveled it with gravel!!

Problem is the frost has set in now so, getting the posts in for the fencing could get interesting!! :(

Ivy, Beatle, & Spruce are all pretty excited about the activity around here as of late...they know SOMETHING is up...

I just LOVE Beatles Blue eye :) Sean keeps trying to bargain with me to claim her as his own..."No way buddy...I agreed to marry you, but I have my limits!!"

AlPine is as pretty as can be but don't let her good looks fool you...she has one BIG attitude!! She loves her human to bits but thinks she rules the girls' that she shares a kennel with!!

Beatle Bug isn't hyper...Nooooooooooo!!!! wiggle waggle pounce pounce pounce!

Ivy...an odd looking gal but sweeeeet! I can see her being a cabin dweller one day! She gets one of the prime real-estate lots in the new pen...Those are reserved for Leaders!!

Spruce is a giant! A gentle giant!! Oh...I can't wait to play with her in the new spot!!
Ivy has to go to higher ground to avoid getting picked on 1/2 of the time! She'll finally get some peace of mind when they are finally staked out with their own food bowls & houses!!

Beatle says..."It's all about MEEEEEE"

Jack is such a sweetie....I can't wait to spend quality time with this guy :) Right now Jack & Cedar are separated from the rest of my team (tucked away with Sean's dogs...poor fellas'...oops...did I actually type that out loud??)...soon that will be fixed! YAHOO!!!

Here's Taz...NOT one of my Dancing Paws but a cutie-pie none the less! And she does live here....In fact she more Human than Husky!!
So ...now you've met a few of my "Other Children"...notice the family resemblance?? I'm not so sure where they get their stellar looks from...Sean or myself!!

And here is Sean...more husky than Human...I mean...more lovable than most humans...ya...that's what I meant ;-)

Heck I married him...he MUST be lovable!!

& besides...HE is the one doing all of the hard labour around this place lately!! & it's because of Sean that my dogs will finally be living in the nicest part of the dog yard in the very near future!!

Thanks Honey...You're the BEST!!

& we can't forget the "Puppy Dogs"...aka

Daddy's little helpers ;-)

Keep the dog pictures coming. I need them!

Heather (aka Mum) said...

hay Allmycke...I thought it was BABY pics you needed to motivate your son ? Although...I think my dogs are just a cute, if I don't say so myself!

Matt, Kara and Hunter said...

Soooo how many dogs are there total in the family??

The girls look great behind the wheel!

Heather (aka Mum) said...

Are you sitting down Kara?
39 !!! & 1 cat
but who is counting ;-)

Matt, Kara and Hunter said...

39!!!! Holey toledo! We can't even manage to have one. Wow. I can't even imagine the ruckus at feeding time.

I had about 18 head of cattle when I was in high school. That was the most of any animal I have ever owned. But I sold them for meat and bought a new car. hehehe

Heather (aka Mum) said...

:( I had a pet cow once. I'd bet she ended up on someone's dinner table too...but I'd rather remember her "on the hoof" ...

Matt, Kara and Hunter said...

I found it easier to name them things like "Hamburger" and "Steak". Much easier to part with.
