Mom says I am a Mischief Maker when we go for walks. I like to sniff everything, and I am especially fond of picking up leaves, bags, cups, plastic bottles, empty grocery bags, and sticks. I figure I am being a good boy in picking up all the messy litter along our walk route. But I do have one item that is my very favorite thing to pick up.
There are lots and lots of pine trees along the whole three mile route that we usually take. Don't worry, I don't eat them, I just like to be a good Siberian worker dog and carry them home. I am a Master Mover!!!
Oops, wait a sec. I dropped this one.
OK, all set. Let's keep going.
Hang on a minute, time for a minor mouth readjustment.
That's much better. C'mon, Mom - time to get a move on.
Sometimes I find a better pine cone along the way and leave the first one for later. But for the most part I do manage to tote a pine cone in my mouth for most of the walk. Mom says the only good thing about this is that it distracts me from chasing the blowing leaves.
So what do you think? I don't see any mischief here, do you?
Time for another short pause - I spy birds up there on that power line. Come down here, birdie. Maybe I can carry you along with the pine cone. I promise you, I am pretty fast.
My stash - now if only I could get Misty or Lightning to help me carry some more home - I could really have a big pile.
Mom, trust me, this is NOT mischief. This is ME, a Siberian Husky from the working breed. Just think, it won't be long before I get you enough pine cones to make a pretty holiday wreath!!!
