The greatest mystery

One of the greatest mysteries of life is not the pyramids. Or crop circles. Or UFO’s. Nope, THE unanswered question is how the dogs know what I am going to do even before I do. This afternoon while I was eating lunch, I thought I would take a few of the dogs for a free run with the ATV. The morning had started badly with symptoms from a medical issue I am dealing with, but after several hours rest I was feeling better and wanted some fresh air. No sooner had I finished the thought, when the dogs, who up to this point had been napping, started to pace. And pace. And pace.

I finished lunch, checked email and read a chapter in a new mystery book. The dogs finally settled down until I made the decision to get my outdoor gear on and you guessed it, instantly the pacing began. How did they know? My parka is on a hook in the bathroom so I could have been needing to pee. Somehow they knew.

It happens all the time. I can be sitting at the kitchen table making a list of which dogs are going to be run that day and the entire dogyard suddenly starts going crazy. Darrel says that about 5 minutes before I get home. which isn’t the same time every day, Polar and Wooley start looking out the window.

Amazing creatures these dogs! Anyway, here are some pictures from today.

The warm temps and a little freezing rain over Christmas have made the trees heavy.

One of my favorite parts of the trail. After winding through spruce forest it opens into this field where moose often hang out.

Sasha is our wannabe sled dog. A rescue from the streets of Anchorage, she is bossy and strong-willed and has captured our hearts.

    Dog’s are absolutely amazing, I have heard of many other cases where dog’s can sense when you are coming home, your mood’s, ( sad, frightened and so on), and can even sense things like cancer and other illnesses. Absolutely amazing.
