After many months our family finally made it over to visit our friends on their beautiful farm. We had an awesome day with perfect Spring? weather! We enjoyed scrumptious homemade pizza and brownies, the glorious aroma of boiling maple syrup, playful sweet children and dogs, and a fun nature walk to a gushing waterfall. One silly cow was walking out over the pond on some not so solid ice- very entertaining! Now we just can't wait to get back!!

This was back in September 2005. Phone pics. We had a huge group of 4 Huskies back then! Dune had just turned 1 when we picked him up from the shelter. We are so lucky to have him, he has been the most wonderful friend, he gives and gives and gives his love! Also pictured-Russ, Butchy Boy, Little Chub Lakota, Ravishing Flirt Sadie, and then Gentle Hearted Dune.

My poor, poor little Flurry. She dislocated her leg from her hip joint Monday afternoon. I was outside in the play yard, and we were having a jumping good time. Flurry, as well as some of the other Sibes, love jumping like pogo sticks, and she must have come down wrong on her left back leg. She started screaming, and yelping. She did not want me to come near her, she was biting out at me at first. She was scared and I was scared. It was terrible. She went and hid in her barrel to nurse her leg, so I had to have Russ come help me. We gently dumped her out and brought her right into the vet. They are very close by- thank goodness! After some sedation and a few xrays, they were able to pop her leg back into the socket. Now her leg is all wrapped up in a sling until Friday. She is getting around amazingly. Even that night. She doesn't even let on that it might be sore! So don't let the pictures scare you. It looks like she lost a leg, but it will be back!
What a strange New England winter. While we visited Nana and Papa, we walked up to the playground, and the kids played without their coats! This was the middle of February!! No snow, Springtime puddles and mud- very strange. And it is staying that way. I'm just waiting to hear that we will be clobbered anytime now.
We tracked down the amazing Christmas Cache with Rev! After following our noses toward the delicious smell of gingerbread cookies, up the icy rocky slopes, past the pines wrapped up in shiny Christmas ribbon, we came upon a toy filled hut. This was definitely the most magical and tasty cache ever!
