Wild Life of Tiny House or Dingoes on the Loose

Christmas can be a tough time at best, relatives coming, getting the roast on in time, wondering how many Santa Ties one will receive this year – but it is even tougher when spent amongst  a pack of Dingoes.  We have three in Tiny House for the holidays so I decided to observe them in the wild doing… well, whatever it is Dingoes do.  No babies were eaten in production of this documentary …yet.

The Pack - you have to be quick with the camera or you get partial Dingoes

Dogs have the perfect face for food begging. I wonder if that is an evolved trait.

LL: Yukon, the big husky woos and talks to us and can let out with some spectacular North woods howls. Austrella, the small husky mix has a yapperly bark, and The little brown girl was a visitor and doesn’t say much.

Dan: Thanks. The two husky mixes run the house, the small black and white girl is the brains of the outfit.

/t.: Thanks, glad you stopped by! Hope Santa was good to you!

hammer Very perceptive, their looks have indeed evolved to elicit emotion in us, that’s why they have done so well…

Kirsten:Thanks! Christmas was great, I know the dingoes enjoyed it!!

hdwk:Christmas was great, had most of the family the pups and some visitors that made everything just right. If my son, his wife, and their pup could have been over as well it could have been classified as FNP – Foolishly Near Perfect. The best gift was having the house full of people again.

Chickie She was after the Christmas cookie I was eating – dingoes will eat no baby before its time.

Be careful no babies eat your dingoes!

Apparently I'm lousy at telling dog breeds apart, because I woulda sworn the one was a huskey, not a dingoe.

Hey Phos,

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas.

DM:Hey DM! How are things in the Alps? Did you all have a white X-mas?

FS I will have to keep a sharp eye on that! The two black and whites are good with kids, the brown dog not so much. She has a strong herding thing going on and I suspect that would end badly with little kids.

MS: It’s a joke son! There may be some wolf and/or coyote genetic material floating around in that bunch, but I figured dingo sounded funnier. Made me laugh, anyway - nothing funnier than dingoes as far as I can see.

DAK: Yukon is around 85#, Austrella is around 60 (we really have to get her out on walks more, but then that wouldn’t hurt me either – good material for a new years resolution post, I suppose). Our daughter’s dog remains unknown, but see has enough energy for about six dogs. I swear we have some of her prints on our ceiling. As far as playing, probably not such a good idea. Yukon has an Alpha complex that wont; quit, Austrella was taken form a home with 109 other animals, so she isn’t too hot on other dogs, and my daughters dog has issues of her own. They get along relatively well together, though Yukon and my daughters pup don’t always see eye to eye over things.

SF! Welcome back and happy Christmas to you!! I’ve stopped by your place regularly but haven’t seen much going on. Happy New Year!!!

I'm not good at telling dogs apart. Truthfully, I confuse Golden Retrievers and Yellow Labs. I do love huskies, though, they're gorgeous dogs. I've been a cat person my whole life, but when I'm able to get a dog, I want a husky!

MS:I ove huskies. There are some things you should know before you get one, however, check out:

No snow at all down here in Zurich and only a little bit up in the Alps. Strange weather this winter, it was pretty warm till late november. But early 2006 was soooo cold until May... so some mild days now in winter are just fair enough ;)

DM: For some reason I always picture Switzerland as snow covered - that is stupid and I don’t know why I hold that image. I have been through your country and what little I saw was breath taking. I wish I could have spent more time.
