"Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night."
Yes, it's true. Rainer Maria Rilke said it best: the green of spring is a scream.
Everything is announcing itself. Daffodils stand proudly, "look at me!" Buds seem to spring from every living plant. And dogs...well, they announce themselves too. Nature has made Big Brown announce her presence to our boys, who are starstruck and in love. So poor Big Brown has to spend time in the "heat pen."
She's been a good girl, though, so tolerant of the isolation her "time" brings. After all, we don't want puppies...yet.
We have other announcements too. The Lazy Husky Ranch is honored to announce it will be blogging for the Akron Beacon Journal, under their pet-dedicated site, Pets.ohio.com! I have developed a small group of people who follow this site and send notes to me from time to time from all over the world, which I appreciate very much. I hope by blogging about our dogs, dog sledding, and any other dog-related topic on the Beacon's page I can spread awareness about this awesome sport and share some tidbits about dog health and kennel management as well.
Thank you to Jim Arnold, Ohio.com site manager and writer for the Akron Beacon for the opportunity! Follow us at http://www.pets.ohio.com!
