Well, we have had a great weekend here. On Saturday, I took Bonnie to the Bark In The Park in Chattanooga and we had a great time. Bonnie is becoming quite the little socialite now! We checked out the new dog park and it is awesome! The first time I've ever been to one of those. They have a huge off-leash enclosure and agility equipment. I introduced Bonnie to the jumps, A-frames, tunnels and weave-poles. And I was very happy with how well she got along with the other dogs there.

Of course the main reason we went to Bark In The Park was because they had a dryland mushing demo. Obviously, this attracted my attention as I was interested to meet whoever was doing said demo. We were excited to meet other mushers from the area and are planning to meet up and train together.

And yes, Bonnie did a quick run with their team as well. I'm very excited to have met new people (and dogs!) and can't wait to see what the future holds.

In the meantime, being outside is now enjoyable and Fall is in the air. Cool mornings make us happy and although it's still warming up much more than I would like during the day, the humidity is GONE.

Things are pretty GREAT here right now, just so you know. The personal/family issues I've mentioned before are looking up right now!

Now I've just got to get the other posts that I've transferred to this blogging site a bit less messy...

And oh yeah, air quotes. HAH!*


*Yeah, you probably have no idea what I'm referring to there. Sorry...

  1. Great to read all the good news on your "new and improved" website! Life can be frustrating at times. Was that Ana or Albert in the photo? Did anyone from the Blue Ridge Dryland Mushing Club come to the demo in Tenn? Congrats on the GED! Your writing skills are outstanding to say the least! Fall has finally arrived along the Blue Ridge Parkway and the colors are starting to show. Ana and Albert had a good puppyhood with a "Husky Mom" like you. I bet they would love to go dogscootering this Fall!

  2. Here's to the happy, cooler weather - for both Sibes and the Hu-family members! Your Sibes look happy and I love the one on the right's big, awesome smile!

  3. Thanks for the comments! Sorry I didn't respond earlier. Somehow new comments are not showing up in my email...

    Dave, I believe that was Ana in the photo. Those puppies are so FUNNY! Steve, from the demo, is involved with the Blue Ridge group but is trying to put together a small group in our area.

    FiveSibes, I think the husky you are referring to is Anya, who belongs to Deborah, a newcomer to the sled dog world. Anya just went on her first long run last Sunday!

    Thanks for the comments!
