Ha!

OldAFSarge said...

The look on the pup's face is priceless.

Old NFO said...

LOL, yep, the expression is a winner! :-D

Rev. Paul said...

Keads, my response exactly!

Sarge & NFO, agreed.

Murphy's Law said...

Love it!

Cathy said...

Ha! Priceless look on that face.

Reminds me of that bit that goes something like "Sure, Fred Astaire was a great dancer, but Ginger Rogers did the same moves, but she had to do them backwards and in high heels."

Rev. Paul said...

Law, I'm glad.

Cathy, that's a pretty good line. :^)

Max said...

A friend of mine runs pulling her sled, up there, from time to time, 350 miles or so. She is the stuff legends are made of.

Rev. Paul said...

Max, there's nothing easy about racing dog sleds. Back in the Susan Butcher days, our slogan was "Alaska: where men are men, and women win the Iditarod."

Mrs. S. said...

What an expression.

Huskies can really pull. My cousin had one. He had to park his car on top of its chain to keep it from pulling loose.

Rev. Paul said...

Mrs. S, that's true. The sled dog racers here have switched almost exclusively to malamutes, though: they're even bigger and stronger.

Murphy's Law said...

Yeah, Susan was ok, but Libby Riddles did it first!

Rev. Paul said...

True, Law. Libby was thought to be a fluke, but Susan won four times!
