Tuloon refuses to chew on her bone again until I put away the camera. Her "helicopter" ears tell it all.
Tuloon and Zala were spayed on September 14th. It's been 10 days and they are almost ready to begin spending time in the dog yard. Tuloon needs to take back her position as queen of the kennel as Topa is getting pretty snotty lately to some of the other dogs. Tuloon is the only one that seems to be able to put her in her place.
Both girls have become accustomed to hanging out in the evenings on the couch or cushy dog bed, chewing a Nylabone with jerky flavor in the center. Hmmm, hmmm! They'll continue to get their turn but it is now almost time to begin letting the others get a turn as well.
These two also need to begin spending more time outside as the weather begins to change so they will be sure to get their thick winter coats. They'll need them this winter as we take our trips into the Boundary Waters Canoe area for the first time in a few years. This will be Zala's first time on an extended BWCA trip. Tuloon went for the first time when she was two years old. She was in lead with Sweet Pea and was supposed to be following right behind my team. Instead, Miss Tuloon decided to take her musher on an adventure of her own as they veered away from us by about a mile, touring the shores and checking out various wildlife tracks and a deer kill by a wolf pack. Little stinker. No harm done. They were always in sight and finally caught up to us just before we reached our destination for the night.
