A Waning Moon

Sometimes things that surround me serve as "prompts" for a post.  Lighting the night sky, the Moon, when full, is a beacon shining into the bedroom window.  It was when it vanished that I thought about our Moon.



Wandering into our yard and into our lives when we lived in VA, she fit right into our lifestyle at the base of the mountains.  She also melded nicely with Copper.  

He was friendly and would go to anyone.  She, on the other hand, was more stand-offish and became the protective one. 

 Quick to learn, our once love-starved Shepherd Husky, soon became known as "the escape artist."


Little did I know, at that time, that Huskies, by nature, love their freedom.  They do not like to be confined.

We had a fence in VA.  She would escape.  Most of the time we didn't know how...not unless it snowed.  We have a fence here in CT.  She has never tried to escape.  I wonder why.




Hunkering down in the recent 8" snowfall, as if she was lying on her bed in the house, this where she belongs, even if it was at 6:40 am.

Good morning, Your MOON is a beautiful dog. Wonderful post and photos. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

Maybe some of her wild had toned down and she has learned she had no need of escape anymore.

Sounds like moving to the colder north appealed to her for home sweet home.

I didn't know huskies were escape artists. How frustrating for the owners!

Sandra said...

I did not know she was a stray that wandered in, blessing for you and for her. I love the shot of her sitting by the chair, just like she was in front of a fireplace and comfy. maybe she doesnt try to get out because she has plenty of space inside the fence to wander and be her husky self...

Silly old Moon!

Awww - what adorable shots.

Your yard must be a lot bigger.

Gail said...

She is home. You can read it all in that last shot.

She definitely looks and acts like a husky ~ Beautiful wintry shots!

Happy Weekend to you, ^_^

ps. Had a husky for 14 years and in the beginning she was always trying to 'escape' but as she got older she became a real home body and loved the snow!

We found that out about our Marshall too, when he lived with us. He would love to get away and wander to the neighbours and beyond. We had to tie him unless we were in the yard with him as we live on a busy road. He loved to chase cars and bicycles too. Not good. Perhaps Moon is just happy where he is now and has no desire to run and explore. Marshall would curl up in a ball in the snow during a storm and be right in his element too. He's part Husky. I skimmed a book at Chapters once called Huskies for Dummies and learned a few of their traits. I love your pictures of Moon in the snow.

Nice looking fence and snow scenes. Your dog is just beautiful.

she's so beautiful. old girls have to stay close to home. :)

Ann said...

She must feel like she has everything she needs right there so there's no need to escape. Love these pictures, especially the last one

Rose said...

Oh, gosh, I love that last shot.

Nina said...

So beautiful - those eyes, the colors in the fur ... looking content and at peace!
Moon is very pretty name - bringing about calmness and stability to my mind. Maybe he has grown ... having had the escapes and plays, being wiser and just enjoying the great outdoors at home :)
