Flashback Friday - Big Mama

Welcome to this week's Flashback Friday post! In case you don't already know, Flashback Friday is a theme led by Tia over at Christopherandtia. Basically you find an older picture and you talk about it, tell whats going on, describe the people, the place, the memories that come from it, whatever you feel like!

Here is my picture this week:

Our Alaskan Malamute, Allie, had puppies. They weren't more than a week or so old in this picture and look how huge they are! I'm probably about 3 or 4. And of course, lets not overlook the huge doggie mama, she was easily about 100 pounds. Good thing she was gentle with us kids! (can't say the same for our goats....thats another story).

Before her puppies were born, we took her to a sled dog race and made a sandwich sign for her to wear advertising future puppies, some of them found homes with a park ranger, a young couple, and other good homes who hopefully knew more about living with Malamutes than we did! We were living in Idaho and all of the houses around us had cows. Allie liked to chase the cows. Luckily, she never caught one, that would've been one heckuva mess, in a lot of different ways.

But isn't she so cute? And fuzzy? And those puppies are so adorable! Maybe I'll have to give another malamute a good home in the future...

I love the pic, that dog is adorable. Gentle dogs are one of the most awesome things (especially when it's not a dog people would assume was gentle). My mother owns a pit bull which is the most gentle dog with the children. But also a guard dog, who's bit a few people when they were trying to intrude into our home. *gives me an idea for my own FF for a different week*
