Walks with a Siberian Husky and Leonberger puppy are never boring!

I was out early yesterday before the sun came out. Walking downhill on a mule track through a neighbour's olive grove, Khumbu goes down in to killer stalk mode, frozen in the “if it moves its dead”. I'm holding on to him, and the 50kg 10 month old puppy Kyra, I'm straining to see what he has seen, cat? bird? fox? wildboar? nope cant see anything. I walk forward with Khumbu walking one paw at a time still in his “I'm so low to the ground nothing can see me” mode, suddenly he launches through the air and pounces on something, making both me and Kyra jump.

It was a piece of plastic hidden in the long dead grass!!! My brave husky 🙂
