My husband and I have a Siberian Husky named Sable. She is a beautiful dog. We have a big back yard surrounded by chain link fencing for Sable. She spends her day running and playing all over the backyard. When we get home at night we let Sable out to run and play in the front yard and then she joins us in my husband's woodshop. We sit in there and chat and catch each other up on our day. As we talk we play with Sable (she loves tug of war with her rope toy) and feed her treats.
As soon as I pull in the drive each evening Sable starts running up to the gate and excitedly jumps around waiting for me to park in the garage. Her tail wags furiously and her whole body vibrates. She barks and barks until I open the gate. Then she is running, leaping, barking some more and hoping for a good back rub. Sable is our personal welcoming committee.
