Day 6: The Quick Run and Dog Party

Today is the Southern Siberian Rescue 5 year anniversary party in Raliegh, NC. In an attempt to to make the pups tired before the party we decided to make a quick run up the walking path in near the house.

The Run:
The walking path runs along the river and is about 4 miles total. We ran half the path; the part where we figured there would be less people. Mukki and Tala got hooked up and we took off down the path, little did we know that River had decided he wanted to go too and made a loud "WEEEeeeeeeee" sound slipped out of his collar and started chasing us leaving Cris behind in the dust. It wasn't till he passed by Mukki and Tala did I realize I had another dog with us. I yelled up to Mukki and I felt the rig jolt as we started moving faster. The chase was on! We rounded a few corners and luckily saw someone walking and I yelled up to "Please grab that dog!" he didn't have to try hard, River ran right up to him and sat down to get some attention. I pulled up along side grabbed Rivers scruff and moved over to grass thanking the man for his help. I waited for Cris to walk about a mile to catch up to us :(

After the excitement Mukki and Tala and I went to the end of the path and turned around to head back to Cris. We decided since River wanted so badly to run we hooked him up with Mukki and took off down the road, Mukki kept him in line, but we were taking it easy. We went about a mile then turned around and headed back. Tala didn't care she wasn't running she sat next to Cris like a princess.

The Party:
Afterwards we went home. River was picked up to go to a dog fair and we packed up for the 2+ hour drive to Raleigh. The pups slept on the back seats. The party was fun. There must have been about 100 Huskies all wanting to meet everybody. There were games, food, and a Silent Auction.
