Often when out for a walk, Gus the bloodhound happens upon fresh moose tracks. This is a splendid opportunity for him to display his tracking skills. Gus was tracking this moose at temperatures hovering around 10 degrees above zero. If I had let go of the leash, I have no doubt that he would have found that moose!
Old Molly hound was also tracking that moose, baying her progress to us. And where was Dimond Willow?? Well, she tracked herself right up to a big pile of moose poop, and was busily dining upon it. She had no interest in going any further.
Wow. It's been a long time. As usual, I've been up to my eyeballs in stuff to do. Teaching 2nd graders all day, teaching a reading class in the After School Program, assistant coaching the Lathrop Ballroom Dance Team AND hauling my 9th grade daughter to basketball practices and games, not to mention taking care of the hounds. Whew. But it is all fun, and I'm having a blast! So here is a little photo montage to start bringing you up to date...
Starting with my goofy children getting ready for the Halloween Carnival.
And a little hound snuggling.
Can't forget a cold, dark Alaskan afternoon photo.
And Molly helping us get ready for Black Friday Power Shopping!
"Who ARE you and what are you doing on MY couch?" the customary line from Gus...
I can't finish up without a little SoundHoundz entertainment, so here it is! Dimond snuffles her new dog bed and grumbles at Gus for getting into her business.
Next installment: Thanksgiving, Christmas, delightful Alaskan weather, crazy hound-dogs and more goofy children!
I have 3 hounds:
a Treeing Walker Coonhound named Dimond Willow, a Bluetick Coonhound named Molly and
a Bloodhound named Gus. Gus is my blog buddy. He is a 100 pound, 3 year old liver and tan bloodhound. Gus has various nicknames: pee-hound, slobber-hound, tweedle-dumb. As a pup he was mostly known as "Satan in a Puppy Suit."
