We’ve been staying at Michael, Melissa and Max’s here in Irvine. Their hospitality has been amazing. Still, I want to write about another family member today, Scout.
Scout is a Siberian Husky. He is a ‘premium’ sized dog. His eyes easily gaze across the dining room table. I don’t know what he weighs, but I’m sure I couldn’t pick him up.
In this two story home Scout stays downstairs. The hardwood staircase is just too scary.
Scout is a gentle giant.
A few days ago I walked Scout, as I walk Doppler. There is a difference!
As we walked Scout tugged hard at the leash. I picked up my pace and before long I looked down to notice Scout was galloping and I was gulping for air!
There’s also a difference in the size of the plastic bag you have to bring along. ‘Nuff said!
Among Scout’s most endearing qualities is a voice-like noise he makes. He moves his lips. It looks and sounds like he’s talking… and this can go on for a minute or two. It’s actually pretty cool.
We already knew Michael, Melissa and Max, but on this trip we really got to know Scout.
