HuMom returns from vacation

Yeah, she's been slacking, It's almost been a week and she hasn't had time to show me the pictures from her vacation.

My Malahoot sister and I stayed home to babysit Dad. HuMom went to visit her Dad staying in an RV park in Lake George NY. I really wanted to go, but the stooopid humans who own the park have banned Siberians. Can you imagine? Anyway, the park allows Yappinators so you can imagine what kind of place she stayed at. Poor HuMom, not a Siberian in site. Good thing HuMom has friends so she could still get her fur-fix.

Her first stop was in upstate NY to visit our fur-friend Klondike and her human woman April! Here's a picture of Klondike. She is furry furry bewootiful.

Klondike has quite the life. Her human owns a kennel and grooming business and Klondike goes to work with her most everyday. Klondike's job is to greet all the pups coming in for boarding or grooming. They live in a region where everything is named "kill" ie Catskill, Fishkill, Beaverkill, Plotterskill but HuMom says nothing violent is happening there. The name "kill" is dutch for "creek".  My HuDad used to live near there but downstate in the Hudson Valley. Driving through there, HuMom can see why my Dad misses the area very much. It's so scenic. Below is the Bear Mt Bridge HuMom passed to get to Klondike house. Isn't it beautiful?

HuMom's next visit came Sunday when she met up with Sue & David and two of their 9 malamutes: Cassi & Hemi. See Hemi's picture and description in the post below. Hemi is named after a truck and very wisely so.

HuMom's biggest surprise was meeting Miss Cassie. Here she is giving my HuMom a flying tackle-hug. My mom fell in love with this sweet girl. Miss Cassie is also and Alaskan Malamute. She is a hard working Mal (she also competes in weight pulls) but HuMom said she has such a sunny and sweet disposition. (so unkileyesque). HuMom wanted to take her home to meet me. HuMom said we'd get another Malamute in a heartbeat if only she was like Cassi.
HuMom sure loved those Gallaghermals!
She also visited with my grandparents and saw both my Uncle Bob and Uncle Mike. I want to thank my Malpals for giving my Mom her furfix in our absense.

What a nice time for your mom. I'm glad there were pups to help her not miss you so much

Too bad that place wasn't good enough for Sibes and Mals to be there.
Klondike and Hemi and Cassi sure are wonderful to help your mom get a fur-fix!
My mom loves all the pix - she lived in NY for a while when she was a biped puppy - she remembers the Bear Mountain Bridge VERY well! And spent a week at Lake George! Crazy, huh?!?! Your post brought back lots of good memories!

If that place didn't want Sibes then we don't want to go there anyway. We're better off without them. That Hemi sure is big!

What a nice tour that was!!! Our Mom says New York has some fantastic bridges - she misses that area. Glad Mom had a good time.

Thanks for visiting our blog and for the b-day wishes for Dakota.

What beautiful pics especially those of the fur-kids. I'm sorry your Mom couldn't take you along but I'm glad you got to babysit your Dad. Was he a good Daddy to you?
The Mals are just beautiful dogs!!!

I could handle this kill place, especially if there's a place called Squirrelkill.

Welcome home HuMom!
